'Bambi' Added to National Film Registry

Under the terms of the National Film Preservation Act, the Librarian of Congress each December names 25 films to the National Film Registry that are “culturally, historically or aesthetically” significant.
Bambi (1942)
One of Walt Disney’s timeless classics (and his own personal favorite), this animated coming-of-age tale of a wide-eyed doe’s life in the forest has enchanted generations since its debut nearly 70 years ago. Filled with iconic characters and moments, the film is filled with beautiful images, the result of extensive nature studies by Disney’s animators. Its realistic characters merged human and animal qualities in the time-honored tradition of folklore and fable, enhancing the movie’s resonating, emotional power. Treasured as one of film’s most heart-rending stories of parental love, Bambi also has come to be recognized for its eloquent message of nature conservation.

TRON Legacy - "Mickey Flynn" & "Mourra Mouse"

This falls under the "better late than never" heading. Produced in 2010, these oil paintings by Greg McCullough, are a very cool interpretation of Mickey & Minnie Mouse as TRON Legacy characters. And why so late? I just recently discovered them for sale as Limited Edition Giclee on Paper or Canvas prints: Mickey or Minnie

40 fun facts for Disney World's 40th anniversary

40 fun facts for Disney World's 40th anniversary

It's been 40 years since Disney World opened and turned Orlando into one of the world's most visited destinations. Sure, the long lines are a punch line. And all Disney magic comes with a price tag. But all 17.2 million people who pass annually through the Magic Kingdom can't be wrong.

So we tip our mouse ears to Disney with one fact for each year of its existence.

1. Walt Disney bought the 43 square miles of Central Florida swampland for Disney World for $5 million, or about $185 an acre.

2. Walt Disney died of complications of lung cancer on Dec. 15, 1966, before the first shovel of dirt was moved on construction of Disney World.

3. 10,000. That was the number of people in attendance for Disney World's soft opening on Oct. 1, 1971. But the grand opening later that month — which included performances by Julie Andrews, Bob Hope and Glen Campbell — was televised nationally. Today, the Magic Kingdom alone averages about 47,000 visitors a day.

BATTLESHIP - Trailer 2

Now, see, this is what the first trailer should have looked like. Although it has barely anything to do with the board game it's supposed to be based on, it is far more entertaining and informative than the teaser. I can almost take this movie seriously now. Almost.

Peter Berg (Hancock) produces and directs Battleship, an epic action-adventure that unfolds across the seas, in the skies and over land as our planet fights for survival against a superior force. Based on Hasbro's classic naval combat game, Battleship stars Taylor Kitsch as Lt. Alex Hopper, a Naval officer assigned to the USS John Paul Jones; Brooklyn Decker as Sam Shane, a physical therapist and Hopper's fiancee; Alexander Skarsgard as Hopper's older brother, Stone, Commanding Officer of the USS Sampson; Rihanna as Petty Officer Raikes, Hopper's crewmate and a weapons specialist on the USS John Paul Jones; and international superstar Liam Neeson as Hopper and Stone's superior (and Sam's father), Admiral Shane.

Director: Peter Berg

Cast: Taylor Kitsch, Brooklyn Decker, Alexander Skarsgard, Rihanna, Asano Tadanobu, Liam Neeson

NeXT Logo by Paul Rand


[via Logo Design Love]
Next, Inc. (later Next Computer, Inc. and Next Software, Inc. and stylized as NeXT) was an American computer company headquartered in Redwood City, California, that developed and manufactured a series of computer workstations intended for the higher education and business markets. NeXT was founded in 1985 by Apple Computer co-founder Steve Jobs after he was fired from Apple in 1985.

Despite NeXT's limited commercial success, the company had a wide-ranging impact on the computer industry. Object-oriented programming and graphical user interfaces became more common after the 1988 release of the NeXTcube and NeXTSTEP, when other companies started to emulate NeXT's object-oriented system. Apple started the Taligent project in 1989, with the goal of building a NeXT-like operating system for the Macintosh, with collaboration from both HP and IBM.

R.I.P. Anne McCaffrey (4/1/26 - 11/21/11)

It is with great sadness that Del Rey Books and Random House report the passing of beloved author Anne McCaffrey. Anne McCaffrey was best known for her award-winning and immensely popular Dragonriders of Pern® novels. McCaffrey died at her home in Ireland on November 21st shortly after suffering a stroke. She was 85 years old. She is survived by her two sons and daughter.
Del Rey and Spectra

The first woman to win a Hugo award and a Nebula award, McCaffrey was named a grand master of science fiction in 2005. Living in Wicklow County, Ireland, at the home she designed herself, Dragonhold-Underhill ("because she had to dig out a hill on her farm to build it"), the author was still answering letters from her fans on her website this month. In August, her son Todd, who has authored and co-authored Pern novels since 2003, relayed her disappointment at having to cancel her appearance at a Pern convention due to ill health. "Mum very specifically asked me to apologise to those who had hoped to see her there, saying: 'Sorry that old age came up and bit me on the a**'," he wrote.

A new show to work on!


So, I'll be hanging out in Windham, NH for a few days this week, and not just for the heck of it, I'll be working as a PA on an episode of Food Network's 'Restaurant: Impossible'. I got an email from the Production Manager a couple weeks ago who was looking for local PA's. I said, sure I'd be happy to help out. Then I got the Production Schedule on Friday and I am on the call sheet, so that makes it official. I'll be on set Monday - Wednesday and the weather looks great so we should be dry and comfortable. I hope they appreciate the New Hampshire hospitality!
