A shadow on the sun

Well, since it is the start of a new month, I'm going to once again ask you all to please vote daily for Sam and Fuzzy at Top Web Comics. I really try not to harp about voting too much, but the fact is that ranking high on TWC helps new readers find the comic, and Sam and Fuzzy would easily place in the top ten if even half of it's readers took the few seconds it takes to vote each day. If you're of the sort that needs extra motivation, my birthday is this Wednesday!

Remember my little rant about Disney last week? Well, if you want to remember the kind of quality work of which Disney is actually capable when they try, check out the Who Framed Roger Rabbit Vista Series DVD. Not only does this sucker have the brilliant original movie, but also it has the three short Maroon Cartoons that Disney paired with various live action flicks in the early 90s. Those shorts are quite possibly the only slapstick cartoons ever made that live up to the golden era of Looney Toons. It's fantastic stuff.

Money can be exchanged for goods and services

I have been such a consumer the last few weeks. I've already tried to satiate my desire to acquire crap by picking up the new CD's from Sloan, The Dandy Warhols and Audioslave, but that hasn't been enough. By some fantastic (or horrible) twist of fate, both the Soul Calibur II and F-Zero GX Gamecube games have been released within days of each other. And then there's the Forces of Evil full length CD, Friend or Foe, which I have been meaning to get since basically forever. I yearn for these items like a impatient six-year old, which is pretty sad considering I'm turning 21 next week. For some people, I suppose, maturity hits a little later.

Like when they're sixty.

Have you been reading Scary Go Round lately? John A is really at the top of his game right now. Every new SGR script should be met with equal parts joy and amazement.

But you can hardly swallow your fears and pain

Yes, I decided to make a follow-up to the Shopping Cart strip. I am a sick, sick person.

You might have heard that Disney, in their infinite corporate wisdom, has decided to stop making new traditionally animated movies. But if you'd like to be reminded of why this is not necessarily a bad thing, why not rent Stitch: The Movie. This 55-minute commercial for the inevitable Lilo and Stitch television series manages to mutate the franchise into a Pokemon knockoff.

In the last few years, while Disney has managed to 'produce' fantastic movies from Pixar and, more recently, Studio Ghibli, their own in-house productions have been in a total mess -- not because they were in 2D, but because they sucked. It was a complete miracle that a great movie like Lilo and Stitch made it out of the same home that produced the utter garbage that was Atlantis and Treasure Planet. Now, they've managed to ruin the only good thing they had going for them.

Disney President Michael Eisner says that American 2D-animation is dead. Well, Mike, you're right. And you killed it yourselves, your stupid bastards.
