    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.

    Disney To Feast In France

    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.

What A Sad, Sad Feeling.

    We have lost yet another icon. Singer and actress Irene Cara has died at age 63.

    She began her career as a member of The Short Circus on The Electric Company. This group of five kids sang songs about punctuation and grammar for the most part.

    In 1980, she landed the role of Coco in the movie Fame, for which she also had her first Top 40 hit with the theme song. She reprised the role in the TV version. Another single from the film was "Out Here On My Own."

    She hit #1 three years later with the theme song from Flashdance, "Flashdance...What A Feeling." That same year, she appeared in the movie D. C. Cab with Mr. T, and had two more singles, "Why Me" and "The Dream."

    Her last hit came in 1984, "Breakdancing," which capitalized on the craze.

    RIP, Ms. Cara. As you said in the Fame theme song, you're gonna live forever. :(

    Well done, EmeraldIsle, for pointing out Irene Cara's bio. I knew about her singing career and acting stint, but that part about The Short Circus group on The Electric Company is news to me. That scores extra points in my book.
