Disney Animated Features and Beach Boys Analogies?


Fitting because Brian Wilson did an album of Disney covers, and the band also has an excellent song called 'Disney Girls (1957)'… Plus the Beach Boys sang with Annette Funicello for the song for the studio's 1965 live action comedy 'The Monkey's Uncle'…

Reminiscing: Animation News in 2004


I've been a huge animation fan since I was roughly seven or eight years old. My love for the medium flourished around the year 2000, as I began watching the Disney films I hadn't had in rotation at the time. Correction, I liked/loved Disney in some form or another before 2000. I saw Hercules, MulanTarzan and Dinosaur in theaters (in addition to Pixar's A Bug's Life and Toy Story 2), I had numerous Disney somethings (films, TV show episode compilations, etc.) on videocassette, I watched a lot of the Disney Afternoon shows when they were being rerun on Toon Disney. That's where I got my DuckTales-Chip N' Dale Rescue Rangers-Goof Troop-etc. fix.

Stomp the Good Guys


YouTube has been going down the proverbial shitter for quite a few years. The interface change in 2011 was an eyesore then and it's still an eyesore. It eliminated several things I liked about the old design, one of which was the ability to watch videos in a playlist on your own channel, the embedded video player simply switched to the next video after one ended… Other things were ruined too. Too many to name right now.
