Mae says- Is 'Frozen' the modern 'Lion King'?There has been a topic that has been bothering me lately that involves people making posts comparing this new Disney Era with the Disney Renaissance (Disney's animation era throughout the nineties). Not only do I find this really absurd, but also painfully unresearched. People seem to be focused on genres and the money the film made rather than the content and the impact the film made within the company. Because 'Frozen' made more money than 'The Lion King', apperantly it's 'better'? Now, if you believe that Frozen is better than TLK, you are entitled to think whatever you want. However, I believe that these two films are in completely different levels when it comes to their impact, atmosphere, music, and characters. Just because one of them made more money than the other doesn't mean anything, heck with that logic the 'Twilight' films are masterpieces.Mae says- Is 'Frozen' the modern 'Lion King'?9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Let's explore the theory of this being a new Disney Renaissance and why I believe it's dead wrong.
Firstly, let's go back
Some thoughts on New Doctor's Eve...Tomorrow (Sunday) the world's going to find out who the next Doctor will be. And with that, a spirited debate that's been going on in fandom will probably wind down for a while:Some thoughts on New Doctor's Eve...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
"Should we allow for the possibility that the next Doctor could be a woman?"
At this point, almost every aspect of that question has been talked to death elsewhere (including other parts of my own DA page), and I don't want to retread it here (too much). But here's one of the most interesting (and increasingly common) arguments for why it shouldn't happen, and I want to focus on it for a few minutes. I'll quote it the way it was said by one commentator here:
"If you make him a woman you're taking away an amazing role model for young boys. There have always been great female role models in the form of the companions, but the doctor is one of the only role models boys have who uses his wits and heart to get through a situation, not his fists."

Why It Sucks To Be a Cosplayer on HalloweenArt By :iconraggedy-annedroid:Why It Sucks To Be a Cosplayer on Halloween2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So it is Halloween. I am a cosplayer. Here it is, the greatest of all dress up holidays! And I am always disappointed. Here are the top 5 reasons it sucks to be a cosplayer at Halloween.
1) Friends (including friends of friends) come out of nowhere to ask for costumes. They just ask for a little help. On their giant full body armor masterpiece. The week before Halloween. Because you know, you make costumes and it's easy for you. And the price? Well, it's "for a friend" price. Which is always "free" or "I'll pay you $20 never" which boils down to "get you a shot of Jack sometime." Sadface.
2) Costumes in my closet everywhere, but none for Halloween. Yes, I have over 60 costumes. No, none of them will ever be recognized at a Halloween party. One year I dressed as Pris from Blade Runner out on the town, which I thought would b

Let me make an addendum to that. Don't even mention them here. Don't ask why they were blocked, don't tell me about them ranting and raving on some site I've never heard of, don't tell me of their journal post shit-talking me here on DeviantArt.

The crossovers themselves
I've already pointed out how the crossovers themselves are utterly cheap, but it goes way beyond that. The creators of these videos tend to create crack pairings (ex. ThomasXTwilight and JettaXLittle Godzilla) and crappy fan characters (ex. Molly Harper the Hedgehog). One thing that really pisses me off about the creators of these videos is that they refuse to accept criticism. Whenever anyone brings up even a sliver of advice, they're either dismissed as haters or trolls, ignored, blocked, or all three. One of them even claimed that if they tried to improve their videos then it wouldn't allow them to be happy (and that response came from a 27 year old man). It's clear that a majority of the PA league members suffer from severe mental issues. T

this craphole of a fandom here, it is the true definition of CROSSOVER HELL. it is the true definition of a fandom that takes it WAY to far with crossovers, sure bronies might crossover and do crap but it ISNT as bad as this. anyways if you dont know what this meme is about, let me just define it using a quote from this deviant here:
"For those who don't know, POOH'S ADVENTURES is a series of Youtube videos that consist of taking any Disney film or any family-friendly film from the past 20 years and inserting not only characters from the beloved Disney franchise WINNIE THE POOH but practically any cartoon character or superhero of the video editor's choosing. This may sound awesome at first, but it's only 5 minute clips of a Pooh cartoon or any cartoon for that matter that's spliced in with the movie clips, and we're led to believe that Pooh is actually talking to a character from that movie."

Pooh's Adventures Series: Not Quite a RantI don't know how many of you people have heard of the Pooh's Adventures series on YouTube, but I figured I ought to throw my two cents in while it's fresh on my mind. I'm not talking about the cartoon series that ran on Disney Channel (The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh), but this does involve it. What Pooh's Adventures is, typically, is the Pooh cast going on an adventure through another movie, like the Great Mouse Detective, An American Tail, the Pokemon movies, etc. I used to think this concept was a neat little idea, but now that I've been dabbling in making videos myself, I find it less than appealing to me these days. You could call it a 'crossover' series, since it has Pooh and friends 'interacting' with the surroundings, providing assistance to the characters and dialogue, but from a more critical viewpoint, I just can't find myself liking it.Pooh's Adventures Series: Not Quite a Rant2 years ago in Personal More Like This

If a girl likes what an executive thinks a girl likes, I can live with that! But if these people think that ALL, every single boy, no exception, all boys period, can only like superheroes, action, sci fi, and comics, that liking "girl's stuff" is something a boy should be ashamed of, that all girls, 10000% of them, except for nobody at all period, only want the latest fashion, pop tween stars, princessy stuff, and flowers, that 0.0000% of females in the world are not interested in what marketing thinks boys like, that genders only like what marketing says they like, where did you come to that conclusion?

Noah's Ark - short reviewOut of curiosity, I recently watched the 2007 version of NOAH'S ARK, an animated movie from Argentina. The film was originally titled EL ARCA ("The Ark" in English, duh), and received an English dub that same year. However, Shout! Factory was "kind" enough to release the English and original Spanish dub on DVD a few months ago. I saw it at my local video store, so I figured it could be good for some laughs.Noah's Ark - short review5 months ago in Personal More Like This
So we all know the story about Noah - Noah is asked by God (who's potrayed as a fat black man, for some reason) to build an ark for his family and for two of every animal in the world, for a flood is approaching. A flood that will wipe away every single person on the planet, and will start life anew. So Noah and his family work hard on this boat, and....
Yeah, you don't wanna hear about this, right? Who cares about NOAH in the movie NOAH'S ARK? Clearly the focus should be on the animals right? Yeah...the movie barely even focuses on Noah and his family. It's about the ani

Do you know why Nickelodeon cancels shows show often or just stops airing them? Do you know why the ratings for all of their shows have been so abysmal lately?
No, it's not because their current shows are "horrible" (they're really not that bad, actually). The real problem can be broken up into two halves...
The first half of the problem is us.
At some point in the past few years, most people developed an anti-Nickelodeon mentality and stopped watching the network. This mostly due to the company's poor business decisions and their recent shows apparently not tickling most people's fancy. The business part I can't defend, but the shows from recent years have not been as bad as people say. There's truly a lot of effort put into each one, but because of past mistakes, people have become too stubborn to give them anymore chances. Because
