I’ve been a harsh critic for for the Animation Pimp, but he’s got a new article in AWN that I was able to follow. It makes what sounds like some accurate complaints about the Justice League, but as I read the article, it dawned on me that although I’ve closely followed news about the show, […]

This has been a busy month, as I prepare to start a new job, and Scott has returned to working on the comic full-time. I’d like to take a moment to welcome the fans of Justin and Britney who are apparently coming to Scooter and Ferret in droves this week. Their internet meeting place is […]

Neopets… it’s a card game I don’t play, but I am one friend removed from a few people who work there.

Oscar nominations are out today, and no great surprises there if you caught the Globes. What I noticed immediately while going over the list was my prediction was correct: Destino is in the running for Best Animated Short. Competition in that category is meager these days, but to be fair Destino is a solid entry, […]
