The Chipmunks' Size in Alvinnn!!!Okay. So ever since we got ahold of a panel from the storyboard from Episode #2: Talkin' Teddy from Alvinnn!!! and the Chipmunks, everyone has gone on to assume that The Chipmunks and Chipettes will be the size they were in the CGI movies in the new cartoon.The Chipmunks' Size in Alvinnn!!!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
This assumption would make sense in theory because of this image:
As you see, Alvin and Simon are much smaller than the teddy bear in this picture. This would lead one to assume that they are the size of actual chipmunks...
And we all did believe that, but my friends and I have realized there is more evidence proving they aren't the size of actual chipmunks and are indeed child sized like they were in the cartoons.
I'll start with the only image we have that is an actual screenshot from the show itself. It is from the promo video that has yet to be released, but we have managed to get a still from PGS Entertainment's Vimeo page.
This image is what first led us to realize that they w
RantI'm sorry guys, but I need to post this. I'm in the mood to rant.Rant3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I might lose a few watchers after this, but I don't really give a shit.
I've been put in a pissy mood today, so I figured it's the best time to get my feelings out about one particular subject: CGI Chipmunks.
I can never post my full opinion on them anywhere, because I don't want to get into trouble or offend anyone. But this is MY dA account, so I can post MY opinion and it won't matter.
I absolutely, with all my heart, DESPISE CGI Chipmunks. There is nothing in this fandom more revolting(other than, say, chipmunks turned into humans).
It's absolutely impossible to express how much I hate them.
CGI RUINED The Chipmunks and Chipettes.
What did they do? They took the characters we all loved and slapped fur on them and made them tiny and fucked up their eye colors and destroyed their personalities.
Here is a list of reasons I hate CGI:
1. Eye colors. This is a HUGE issue for me. Bigger than anything. HUGE. I FUCKING HATE W
FINALLY!!So we've been long speculating that the iMunk/Call Me Maybe designs were going to be the ones used in the new TV Show...we finally get confirmation...and some pretty awesome sketches. <3FINALLY!!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I don't care what anyone says...I adore these designs. They are far from being as cute as the 80's designs, but I think they are PRECIOUS either way!
We also now have a release date...2015! And a new name, too! ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks!
I'm very excited. <3
Happy 30th Anniversary!I wanted to write a journal for the anniversary of the 80's cartoon, so I'm just going to use the same content as I did on my forum post about it a couple of hours ago.Happy 30th Anniversary!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Thirty years ago today, a television show that is close to all hour hearts premiered.
Alvin and The Chipmunks
The Chipmunks have existed now for 55 years, but the 80's renditions of them have only existed for 30.
Alvin and The Chipmunks, later renamed The Chipmunks, and even later The Chipmunks Go to the Movies, lasted for eight whole seasons. From 1983-1990. Wonderfully successful for a little Saturday morning cartoon.
For the years after, the first few seasons aired in syndication on networks like Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network.
This show introduced The Chipettes. It was the reason for the success of many albums. It spawned a huge theatrical movie with breatht

We could get in trouble or we might not get more info anytime soon. I don't think this is meant to be seen by the public right now.

EDIT: I found some more things todayyy!
Here is a storyboard image of Alvin and Simon from Episode #2, "Talkin Teddy".
Based on the image and their size in relation to the teddy bear, they will probably be chipmunk sized...
but we can always hope the bear is giant, right? ^^
(Btw, that image looks like that because it's a rough storyboard image, not in the same style as the show itself)
Here is an image of their house from Episode #1, "Principal Interest".
The Chipettes Are Not Sex ToysI just feel like getting this out.The Chipettes Are Not Sex Toys1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The Chipettes are not sex toys.
They have always been highly sexualized since their creation, both by fans and, admittedly, by Bagdasarian Productions and the animators themselves.
Right now we're going to discuss The Chipettes' sexualization in the fandom.
Let me start off by saying something....
Brittany, Jeanette, and Eleanor Miller are eight years old.
Now, I have looked at plenty of Rule34. I check for it every day. I have written smut fanfiction, but they are adults in it of course.
This isn't just about The Chipettes' age though. That plays a big part in why it's bad, but they are fictional characters so it's not as bad as it would be if they were real...
What makes me angry is that a lot of people act like The Chipettes aren't even their own characters and are only there to be sexually pleasing to the viewer and to The Chipmunks.
I know a specific person, who I will not
Unlikely InspirationTwelve year old Brittany Miller stared down at a blank piece of paper. She had been doing this for the past ten minutes. No matter how hard she tried to think of who she could write about, no one came to her mind. Writing was not her thing, especially when she was being forced to do it.Unlikely Inspiration10 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
Her English teacher had been calling her up to her desk for the past week to repeatedly remind her that her grade in the class was slipping more and more. Brittany knew she wasn't doing too great in the class, she didn't need to be told that every day she walked into the classroom. Especially since it wasn't her fault.
The Chipette just couldn't get herself to focus any time her teacher opened her mouth. She wasn't interested in the books they were assigned to read, she didn't care about correcting grammar and spelling mistakes from short stories, and she most definitely didn't care about any of the writing assignments her teacher came up with. She couldn't make herself do the homework they were given e

"I think y-you might really like t-the movie, Brittany."
"For the last time," Brittany spoke slowly and calmly to her sisters, hiding her face with her blankets, "I'm fine! Goodbye!"
Jeanette fidgeted uncomfortably near the door while Eleanor rolled her eyes.
"Fine then," the shorter Chipette gave up, turning to Jeanette. "Let's go tell Miss Miller we're ready to go."
Brittany waited to hear the sound of the bedroom door closing, relief washing over her once that exact sound met her ears.
She buried her face into her pillow and pulled her covers over her entire body, hoping to shield herself from the world.
Sometimes, even the best people could have their off days. There were those times where you just couldn't face the world, couldn't possibly even dream of getting out of bed if you didn't have to.
She was most definitely having one of those days.
But it wasn't supposed to turn out like this!
Her day was supposed to be the exact op

There needs to be more Simonette.
I MEAN JUST LOOK AT THIS HOW CAN YOU NOT SHIP THIS SO HARD YOUR EYEBALLS FALL OUT????
I ship Princess MontanaxTrusty too tbh.

So I have decided that so this journal is not just spam sitting in your inbox I will talk about how much I love Simonette.
I'll love Simonette till' the sun don't shine.
I was so upset earlier because on Fanfiction there were three Alvinette stories on the front page but only one Simonette one. And the Simonette one was written horribly, honestly...as in pretty much unreadable...and I think it was CGI anyway.
SO I WROTE A SIMONETTE ONESHOT, which you shoul
I haven't updated in a while.I haven't updated here for Alvinnn!!! in quite a while, and while I've been updating the day we get anything new every time on the forum, I haven't posted any of the recent updates here.

A passing thought...I posted this on The Chipmunks forum earlier in General Chat, but I thought I'd make a slightly lengthened and altered version of it as a journal here.A passing thought...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Earlier today I read a comment on here saying that "everything in the live action movies was sooooooooooooooooo much better than the 80's cartoon". I wanted so desperately to reply, but the person who made the comment already had my blocked for reporting one of their friends for recolors.
CGI may have taken over this fandom. It may have brought with it a ton of idiots. People that recolor, repitch. People that have no grasp of the characters' actual personalities. Because, like it or not, the movies themselves mess with all of those things. They don't repitch or recolor, of course. Although they did change colors significantly, specifically the eye colors, from The Chipmunks and Chipettes cartoon counterparts.
A lot of people in this fandom, mainly CGI people, you can't deny, care more about their 'OC's'(which in actuality aren't

But this fandom....there are a few gems in it, a few great people. I met the most important people in my life through The Chipmunks fandom, but the majority of people in this fandom are..well...
for lack of a better word
There is a lot of things I hate about this fandom, so I'm just going to make a list. These aren't really in any particular order.
Recolors. You can't escape them on dA or FFN, they're everywhere. CGI recolors, the occasional cartoon recolor. They make me absolutely sick. The only place I can escape them is The Chipmunks Forum, because we've banned them there. Repitches. Why the HELL would anyone try to make repitches when there are so many official songs out there? There are SO FREAKING MANY. Why would you even consider this?? And when people make them, they don't s
Stop Being BiasedBefore you read this journal, I want you to stop for a moment and take your favorite character off of their pedestal.Stop Being Biased1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Yes, that means stop worshiping everything they do for a moment.
Just for a moment.
Okay, now continue.
I have noticed that in this fandom people seem to be extremely biased towards their favorite characters.
Having a favorite character is okay! That's great! If you didn't I'd be worried!
But don't be biased.
Your favorite character is not perfect. They are not God. They make mistakes. They do things wrong. They fail. They are not always right. Every other character does not worship them. Every other character doesn't think they are always right. Every other character does not bow down to their feet and say 'Wow you are right about everything!'
And that's what makes them so great and lovable, isn't it?
It seems like people have this complex towards their favorite character where they think they are per

Life is weird that way, you know? One minute it's going one way, and the next it takes a whole new turn. What I wanted my life to be is different than what is now. As a boy, I had an aptitude for music. The piano and guitar came naturally to me. By age fourteen, I could play almost any song that I'd heard at least twice; by eighteen, I knew what I wanted; to produce music. I didn't want to perform, oh heavens no! I was extremely awkward and had no real people skills what so ever. No, the writing and managing of a group seemed more for me. That way, I was still surrounded by what I loved while doing something I was actually good at.
Unfortunately, the star-struck career I've always dreamed of never came too quickly to me. My name, Dave Seville, was known by no big names, no record labels, no one. My name wasn

Brittany Miller is perfect perfect perfect I love her
I'm just putting some love out for her because today I was reminded of how unfair people can be towards her character. Hate on Brittany all you want but if you're going to hate on her please have an actual GOOD reason for it other than "wah she's a bitch". If you're going to use that reason, you better hate Alvin JUST AS MUCH otherwise you're sexist and kind of really disgust me.
But really though, Brittany is PERFECT. She's perfectly nonperfect and I love her so much you guys don't even understand.
Brittany is so amazing one great example of her amazingness is that she has literally jumped out from between a shark's jaws now let's be real WHEN WILL YOUR FAVORITE EVER COMPARE TO THAT????
But really stop being such shits and hating on a wonderful character all because you're either butthurt that ALVIN ACTUALLY CANONICALLY LOVES HER AND ALV
