Doing Disney Better than Disney

Don Bluth is a great man. For some reason I thought I had seen Secret of NIMH when I was a kid. Maybe I just wanted to fit in with the cool animation kids and not get taunted for having "missed one of the greatest things to life" and how my childhood must've suffered. (Let's face it, some people can be annoying when you haven't seen certain movies.) And, now I can actually say I've seen it. And it's amazing. And Rock-a-Doodle is hard to watch when it's been chopped up into 16 four-minute long segments on youtube.

I'm trying to write my thesis paper on Don Bluth for thursday now so I don't have to worry about it tomorrow night when I'm standing in line for the new World of Warcraft expansion. Though, I'm nervous. Truth be told, my ADD acts up when I'm supposed to be concentrating on something like a paper (i.e. this post) and all the WoW servers are still down from their scheduled maintenance. In fact, when I checked the realm list... realms were just plain missing. Odd. Good problem to have two days before the launch of an expansion. (Not)

Back to the paper and Don Bluth.

Remember, Remember...

Posts will always be few and far between while I get distracted doing actual work rather than trying to display it.

So, while I'm at it, here's the latest character to be added to the Caprean arsenal with Dallas and Jestir -

Sophie Rammeyer!

Actually, she was just created for a certain project for my Acting for Animators class (which is proving to be a waste, I'll explain later). She's based on the character Sophie Rauschmeyer by Neil Simon from his play Star-Spangled Girl. I'm animating her to a line Sophie says from the play ("And I can do without you tying big bottles of eau de cologne to mah cat's tail!") If I finish the animation well enough, I'll post it. If not, then it was a bust.
