Re: YouTube Goodness

The Mandalorian is set roughly 5 years after Return of the Jedi, so that places it at about 1988, on our timeline. 8)

Re: Coronavirus (COVID-19)

I've averaged working only 5-6 months out of a given year, for the past while .. so, I'd long ago developed the habits of socking-away more than half my take-home pay, and remaining debt-free/reducing costs, so that my unemployment insurance payment (which is roughly 20% of my average weekly paychec...

Re: Coronavirus (COVID-19)

I'd already been laid-off in mid-February (unrelated to COVID-19), so my lifestyle was already geared toward staying home and not going out much. I did file for -- and received -- a full 6 months of unemployment insurance. Guess I beat the rush. :| I'd also been paying attention to news reports on C...

Re: Disney's Frozen

It's kinda half 'Frozen II spoilers', and half 'references to obliquely-similar movie/tv franchises'.

But it's probably funnier (and would make more sense to you, overall) if you've seen the movie beforehand. :wink:

I have to say it does make me a bit sad that SOTS won’t be showing on D+. :(.
Today's Cartoon Research blog entry features several 'behind the scenes' anecdotes on Song of the South.

Re: J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek"

Sorry you didn't enjoy the job, Droo. I can certainly see how a bad experience can color your desire to watch. As you likely heard, lots of us loved BG and Firefly, too. That's why I'd made certain to mention those other two shows; I wanted to make the point that my own opinion on ST:D (colored ent...

Re: J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek"

I worked on VFX for the 2-part pilot episode of Star Trek: Discovery .. and was rather unhappy with (what should have been) a 'dream job'. I can't say much more than that, due to NDAs .. but I was left completely 'incurious' to ever check out the ongoing ST:D series. Funnily enough, I had the exact ...

Re: Addams Family CG Movie

I recall enjoying this in the theater .. but thinking -- pretty much the entire time I was watching it -- that the Hotel Transylvania trilogy had stolen much of its thunder .. it had a lot of the same types of gags, with a very similar approach. Even the character & set design seemed as though it co...

Bullwinkle's back!

In 1961, a statue of Bullwinkle J. Moose and Rocket J. Squirrel was erected on the Sunset Strip, near Hollywood. It stood next to the Jay Ward Productions studio, which would later become The Dudley Do-Right Emporium .. a souvenir shop which sold 'Jay Ward-themed' collectibles (mostly kitschy cerami...

Re: Indiana Jones And The New Disney Movies Thread

So...summer then. ;) Maybe where you live. For me, we'll be barely into spring in two months! It's 91°F (32.8°C) in beautiful downtown Burbank, today. We seem to have skipped spring, and gone straight into summer. In February . :evil: No signs of Indiana Jones (that I can see) around here, though. :P
