I have no idea, I just know that I was singing "Scarborough Fair".

In any case, Einon is the last person that would talk about spices. He's complete and utter mad with power.

Excellent wisdom, Scottsie. I only wish Robsie could understand and be inspired by it.

Talking of Einon, would you believe me that this person (in the middle)...


DRAGONHEART - Prince Einon


...and this person, are the same?





Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban - Professor Lupin


David Thewlis is an absolute genius and an incredible actor, if you ask me.

Much good it's done. I was expecting to see me with red skin and goat's horns, or at least in a Carmen Miranda ensemble. Maybe even as Scarlett O'Hara. But no.

I'll volunteer to be subjected to crazy Photoshops of me as well! I'd love to see how creative people can get. I still adore that 'tattoo and top hat' one SquashedSak did of me.

If anything, digital mutations of me and Scottsie should make Robsie look like the most uptight 'little boy' here that he is simply because he can't laugh at himself the way Scottsie and me can at ourselves.

So gimme my nasty Photoshops, you whores!! I want relentlessness!!

You know, Rob is not you and the world is the interesting place it is because we are all different. We can't all have the ease to talk about our sex lives in a public forum or enjoy being constantly hit with digital manipulations of our image. Some of them were funny but honestly I don't blame him for being upset. Why can't you learn to respect Rob for who he is instead of trying to barrage him with comments thinking you will change him.

Fair enough. Let's all relax, take a deep breath, and respect each other's individuality.

Now, that everyone seems to be happy, let's discuss how Peter Jackson obviously copied character designs from great 80s cartoons.






That looks a lot like a certain character, don't you think? (Agent) Elrond?

(To tell the truth, that ridiculously huge forehead creeps me out, be it cartoon based or in the movie. Though in the movie there's also the added fact that Elrond looks mean.).

You are seriously, seriously beginning to annoy me with your holier-than-thou, patronising attitude towards anyone who happens to have a remotely different opinion from yourself.

Okay, this one was just inspired:


"Make it so!"

The resemblance is uncanny, hehe.

Aww, Ncrosie. Don't dig out that old discussion again. I don't care if it was a rip-off or not, "The Lion King" is still one of my favourite movies. Likewise, as I child I really enjoyed watching "Kimba the White Lion" as a child too. It's old, and I'm sick of it. People get worked up over this, and what good does it do them? If someone should get worked up over it, then it should be the people holding the rights to the stuff.

Had I known that you'd bring this up, I'd never have brought up the resemblance between the Councillor Triplos (that's the guy's name) and Elrond. I was joking, because I kind of doubt that Peter Jackson would look for reference how an elf should look in a cartoon version of the Odyssey (and some other greek mythology) set in the 31st century. Because that's what the screencapture is from. "Ulysses 31", the episode "Rebellion on Lemnos". I don't even think those guys are supposed to be elves. Oh, and "Ulysses 31" happens to be a collaboration between a french and a Japanese team.

Oh, and nobody is free of blame I guess. Just take Ulysses from that series. He wields a sword that's strangely similar to another kind of futuristic sword based on extremely bundled rays of light. It's still a great series with enough original content to make the show shine bright.

I'm not saying that plagiarism is good, because it isn't. But just because of that you should not condemn anyone, not even Disney. I mean, it's bad enough they decided to stop making traditional animated movies, and the whole thing with the Disney War. Disney movies were something I looked forward to every year (around Christmas. We always got the tickets as presents for Saint Nikolaus Day, which is the 6th December. Many years the annual Disney movie would be the only cinema visit we'd make in a year.), and now it's hard to believe that those are gone. Sure, there's still a yearly movie, but it doesn't seem the same. You can't really tell apart *which* of those digitally animated movies is the Disney one, because it feels soul of the movies feels different. The movies are wonderful, but it's just not the same. It seems strange, and if you compare the stories, they are quite different. The Magic has changed. I find myself searching what I know, the kind of movies I love. I still enjoy the new style of movies, but I still long for the traditional movies. The last traditionally animated movie that captured me like Disney movies did (and still do) was "Howl's Moving Castle", by Hayao Miyazaki. Now I've realised that the "Magic" as Disney fittingly calls takes many shapes, and is not restricted one studio. To have me walking out of the cinema in serenity is the greatest thing. And I believe Disney will be able to produce such movies again, maybe does so still. There's still movies I will walk out of, feeling the great the terrible void inside me, the realisation that it's over, so I will feel sad that it's over, and happy that I experienced the magic. For in my soul it's all there, all the memories, the magic. Be it Disney or any other story. They are all there and I'll cherish the memories.


...



Uh, I think I went a bit off-topic there.

Sorry, I think this just had to get out. Don't mind me.
