    You WIll Need To Reset Your Password!!!

    We just moved hosts on this system, and this has caused a few updates. One is the way we encode and store the encoded passwords.

    Your old passwords will NOT work. You will need to reset your password. This is normal. Just click on reset password from the log in screen. Should be smooth as silk to do...

    Sorry for the hassle.

    Other Side Of Maleficent

    I have been looking forward to Maleficent with equal amounts of anticipation and dread. On one hand, she is easily my favorite Disney villain, so cold and so pure, and I want desperately to see more of her and her back-story. On the other hand, she is easily my favorite Disney villain, and I would hate to see her parodied, taken lightly or ultimately destroyed in a film that does not understand this great character. The good news is that this film almost gets it right; but that is also the bad news.

    The follow up to Disney’s 2013 Academy Award Winning short Paperman has been announced, and it will premiere at France’s Annecy International Animated Film Festival. Titled The Feast, the short looks to be based on the same stylized CG techniques used on last years Paperman, a more natural and hand-drawn look to computer animation.

    Renegades of Animation: Pat Sullivan

    Pat Sullivan became famous worldwide for his creation of Felix the Cat. What most animation histories gloss over is Sullivan’s checkered past and longtime standing as a wildcat renegade. He didn’t follow the rules. And he made damn sure to fully protect his intellectual properties.

    Sad news in the music business. Olivia Newton John has died today at age 73.

    Born in 1948, she became one of the most popular singers of the 1970's and 1980's, scoring with big hits that included "Let Me Be There," "I Honestly Love You," "Have You Never Been Mellow," and two duets with John Travolta from the movie Grease, "You're The One That I Want," and "Summer Nights."

    In the 1980's, her song "Physical" became her biggest hit ever, spending ten weeks at #1. She was also an actress, appearing not only in Grease, but Xanadu and Two Of A Kind.

    RIP, Ollivia. Today is truly a day to be mellow. :(

    She also had a hit in 1982 called "Heart Attack", which was a great song. She apparently died of cancer.

    Many of her best hits were from the early 1980s, in my opinion. She hasn't had any great hits since "(Living in) Desperate Times" in 1984.

    My most favorite songs by Olivia are:

    "Make a Move on Me"
    "Heart Attack"
    "Twist of Fate"
    "(Living in) Desperate Times"

    Never cared about any of her post-1984 material, including "Soul Kiss" which was her last song to enter the US top 40.

    Olivia scored 4 top ten hits in the U.S. in the 1980s, more than any international female recording artist that decade. Overall, Phil Collins is the most successful international solo singer during the 1980s, I believe (he had more than four top ten hits during that decade.

    Ironically, Olivia's death happened exactly 42 years after the theatrical release of Xanadu, a film in which she starred. The film's theme was recorded by Olivia along with Electric Light Orchestra (were they renamed ELO by that point?).
