We’ve all been hearing for years about the decline of DVD and Blu-ray sales. And while there’s hasn’t been any doubt about the popularity and convenience of streaming services and digital downloads over physical discs, it still hit us pretty hard to learn that Fox will no longer be releasing any further seasons of The Simpsons on physical media.

Top Ten Most Fascinating Animated Characters: Number 8

Homer-Simpson-wallpaper

So far in this list of the ten most fascinating original characters in animation history, we have seen a little boy, Norman from ParaNorman, animated using very advanced, gorgeous, stop-motion animation and a far-out space ranger, Buzz Lightyear, a character from the first fully computer animated feature whose design and overall character appeal continues to dazzle audiences twenty years later. However, number 8 on the list did not enter the spotlight in such an aesthetically appealing fashion.  D’oh!

Fascinating Rants: Are We Living on the Axiom?

Wall-E

Consider this my scheduled rant as a Disneyland cast member, but I have been seriously considering the chilling similarities between the humans in WALL-E and the humans I encounter more and more at the happiest place on Earth.

So, is WALL-E a prophetic piece of societal stereotyping?

San Diego Comic-Con Begins Today, But It’ll Take the TARDIS to Get Me In

Boxtrolls-Movie-Posters-Comic-Con-Bug-Eating

So, as much as I have always loved comics, cartoons and everything related to the world of being a nerd, generally, I have never attended or paid much attention to the many, varying comic conventions that are so popular these days. Maybe because I haven’t lived in SOCAL that long, but I now realize how incredibly out of the loop I am. In researching what, in relation to animation, this year’s Comic-Con has to offer, I have been bowled over by all the cool exhibits, guests and products available to the 130,000 fans that managed to get tickets to this exclusive event. I went online to try to pick up a ticket for Sunday because I am off work, but apparently I need to locate the Doctor about traveling back in time, since they are all long sold-out.
