TAB Reviews: Thomas and the Magic RailroadFor the United States, King of the Railway will come out on DVD September 17. To prepare myself for the film, I'll be reviewing each Thomas movie every Friday starting with the one that started it all; Thomas and the Magic Railroad.TAB Reviews: Thomas and the Magic Railroad2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Released on July 26, 2000 in America, the movie has been critically panned for its numerous plotholes, Americanisms, and various minor issues, blaming Britt Allcroft for the failure, even if it wasn't her fault. Some people insist the movie is good, and others say its bad. What do I think? Let's find out. (not Nostalgia Critic style, I should mention) Here's a short disclaimer:
OPINIONS IN THIS REVIEW ARE SOLELY MY OWN, NOT THE THOMAS FANBASE ON WHOLE
Hummie Mann was composer for Magic Railroad, and having listened to the soundtrack, he's done a grand job. Sure, he's not Mike O'Donnell and Jr. Campbell, but Hummie's version of Thomas' theme at the start is nicely performed. The music for the chase scene was excellent, as were the musi

Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS so farThis journal is more or less to sort out everything we know about the next SSB games so far, mainly characters and stages. When Sakurai reveals something new, it will be added here.Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS so far1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Just like how the stages differ between the 3DS and Wii U versions of the games, the Trophy Collection will also be different between the two. 3DS will have trophies based around handhelds (with Saria from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D as the example shown), while the Wii U version will have console-based trophies.
A Trophy Shop will be found in SSB4, allowing players to buy trophies with either the gold coins earned in-game or with Play Coins.

Animation Story #8- My first anim. scene at DisneyI haven't posted a Disney Animation Story for a long time. I've written career related "inspirational" posts every once in awhile, but not an Disney career story.

This story was brought on by a question someone asked on my Tumblr page which lead to me answering with a story. I thought I'd share it here with you all. -Tom B.
Hi! I'm an animation student at UT Dallas, and I've been looking for stories and advice from great artists. What was your first big project, and what did you do? What advice would you give an aspiring animator
TOM: This probably isn't the answer you are looking for but my first animation for Disney was of a foot kicking a pot. I was (the legendary animator) Mark Henn's clean up assistant for about 2-3 years before I moved into ani

The year’s best naturally-occurring light show, the Leonids meteor shower, is due overhead on the nights of November 15 - 20. The passing comet “Tempel-Tuttle” leaves a debris field of meteoroid particles in its wake each year that the Earth will spin through on those nights. Larger “Leonids,” about 10 mm across, have a mass of half a gram and are known for their brightness. The Leonid shower may deposit 13 tons of particles across our planet. The Leonid meteor storm of 1833 may have been the biggest, brightest ever, producing an estimated 240,000 meteoroids entering our atmosphere over 9 hours. Both Nati

Long time; no talk. How are you all doing?
Since this year is the year of the apocalypse you can expect more Left 4 Dead 2 videos. I'm definitely thinking about making some Keith and Ellis derp videos. The current winning idea is 'How to with Keith.'
Oh, yes. Chaos shall follow.
I'm ALMOST done with a second Blame it on the Cosplay video; THE REVENGE. Seriously, this is so so so so much better than the first one. I really can't wait. The only reason I haven't uploaded it yet is because the contacts for Lestat haven't arrived yet. Once his part is filmed then it shall be up for your pleasure!
You can definitely expect more Marauders. These guys will have plenty more episodes and silly shorts to come.
What else is worth mentioning?

Walt Disney, John Pomeroy, and meWhat do all three of us have in common? Animation, of course. But as far as this posting goes, there are two seperate bits of info I'm giving you:Walt Disney, John Pomeroy, and me2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) I just saw this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAl9P4T12Rs&featurelayer_embedded to a much loved video of Walt Disney talking about "art style". I as a part of some Disneyland show he did for TV way back when, but it is one of THE BEST looks at the individuality of the artists at the studio back then. Its one of the few times that Disney acknowledges how many different styles reside in the animation studio and that they must all melve together to create one vision. But also contribute their "pieces of uniqueness" in the creation of the ultimate style of a film. It also includes the famous clip, "Four artists paint a tree" that is the second half of the video and plays out all that he says before. A MUST SEE FOR ANY ARTIST!
2) Just last night, I did a podcast interview with leg

When “strength” is the topic, do you think of physical or machine power—or of will power and determination to achieve the goals of your cause?
Relative to size, no human being has ever been as powerful as a common ant. And one person’s life ambition is often another person’s conception of total madness. Context and perspective is everything — as you’ll find illustrated by perusing the following gallery of ima
