Um, Charles?
Did you know that there is another AnimatioNation? I found it as I updated content on my yahoo page and discovered it wasn't the news group I know and love.
Here's the link hon': AN

Wow! It's just like the Star Trek episode where Kirk, McCoy, Scottie and Uhura beam to the alternate-universe Enterprise where Spock has that Goatee and they all wear those glittery pirate-sash things around their middles.
I wonder if there's an alternate-universe Ravenshoe? I bet he's witty and charming - just like me...

This new Animatio Natio is obviously an otherimensional leakage. I have seen many episodes of THE OUTER LIMITS, so I knows it when I sees it. Best course of action? Attempt to assimilate it until it goes away. It's kind of a blend 'twixt the continuities of the 1960s OUTER LIMITS and the 1990s OUTER LIMITS. so I guess it would have to star Bruce Dern and Kirsten Duntz, who I call "Dirsten" for humorous reasons. Will it have stop-motion animated ants with evil human faces? You ask questions beyond my psychic abilities...

Great, somewhere on the other side is a better-looking me with a goatee, a job at PIXAR, and the name Winchell M Home. God I hate parallel universes.

Now we've got to be careful with these guys. 'Cause if we ever meet up, the matter and anti-matter of our two universes would collide and the resulting explosion would annihilate us all!

I think the safe and sane thing to do is keep a safe distance from them while we thumb our noses. [rasberry]

I encountered the other-universe Russian Judge. He's known as the Manhattan Seducer, he has the admiration of every woman he meets, he can draw (and be paid for it), he has bullet-proof self-confidence and everone hangs on his every word.

I'm going to find a way to get to that other universe and assassinate him.

I have a goatee...

Does this mean I am someone's alternate universe self, or is there another Trond out there with an even bigger goatee? [Confused]

Actually I think in this alternate universe, it would probably be kid and teenage versions of people here:

http://www.animationation.net/community/showthread.php?t=1077

And if there were a younger version of me, he'd probably still be an arrogant dork, with no goatee.

You can make a AnimatioNation.net drinking game.. whenever someone says "I love Anime" you take a drink.
But from what I've seen, you'd be a falling down raging alcoholic before noon.

If you read the following:
"Hi, my name is (_____) and I really really like Anime and or manga! It is super cool! (______) is my favorite show! I think it's great all these shows are finally coming to America. I wish I was Japanese."

... You pretty much get the jist of AnimatioNation.net

I also like dressing up like X character from X anthropomorphic animal comic....

So Baby, do you shag?"

If the guys on that site say "I wish I were Japanese," is this site created in Atlanta? I've never met a more fanatical, single-minded bunch of anime fans anywhere else. (Not to mention all-male, even more dateless than me and making sexist comments during the screenings.) It wasn't until I started seeing anime clubs elsewhere that I realized there were women who liked anime, and that not everyone needed or wanted fanservice.

Ravenshoe,
HILARIOUS! The bit about anti-matter! There's that great Seinfeld episode where Elaine meets the bizarro Jerry, Kramer, George.

I taught an animation course at a community college last Spring and I was really surprised how obsessed with anime all the students were. that's all they wanted to draw, all they wanted to animate.

I suspect most of the people on this board are older and so were not affected during their formative years by the 90's flood of anime into the U.S. But the kids coming into college now, that's all they know.

Makes you wonder what the animation world is going to look like in ten, twenty years when the majority of animators grew up on anime.

I remember during one presentation by a speaker, one guy whose entire life was drawing Dragonball Z-style characters was crushed at the thought that anime style wasn't the wave of the future.

Somenoe once said my style was a combination of Miyazaki and Disney. I took it as a compliment, though some of my character's chins look a bit anime in appearance. The girls have a slight point, though I try to play down toe 'bouyancy' factor in my female characters.'

Can you say 'bouyancy,' boys and girls? I know you can.

Oh, and in terms of aprallele universe selves, I think that for women, it has to do with hair length. So if you have short hair on 'Animationnation,' then at 'AnimatioNation,' the girls will have long hair.

Which makes me wonder: What is Mr Fun's parallel counterpart? Mr Dread?

Speaking of parallel universes: A few years ago my wife and I went to a fabric store to buy material to re-cover our dining room chairs. We picked out our fabric and as it was being cut, we looked across the store. There were the Anti-Steve & Heather, people who looked JUST LIKE US and they were buying upholstery fabric too! I know they were from some weird other universe because their fabric was the WRONG COLOR!!! Spooky, huh?

Fanservice - Jeepers, in my day there were only pimply geeks at sci-fi conventions. They were "No Girls Allowed", not unlike "The He-Man Woman-Hater's Club". Girl-Geeks. Who'd have thought?

Yes, Ravenshoe. Girl Geeks. And not all of them are overweight or ugly. Some of them love the same things that boy geeks love.

And most interestingly, some of the more attractive ones DON'T MIND looking like sex objects...as long as it's only looking involved, and it's within the safety of a large convention. It has made taking pictures at cons MUCH more worthwile. (I hesitate to tell you about the "Strawberry Shortcake As A Slut" outfit some girl was wearing at Dragon*Con.)

You may wish to check out the song by The Great Luke Ski, on his "Worst Album Ever" CD, "Fangirls, Shake That Booty."

I love me them girl geeks. [bow]

And about Anime... i'm 32.. and I GREW up watching it. It's nothing new. I remember Lupin, Gigantor, speed racer, Battle of the Planets (Gatchamen) and Kimba the white lion. when I was 12, I was blown away by Miyazaki's "Nausicaä: Warrior of the Winds" and then Akira came out when I was in High School. Which I regarded being the best animated film ever... at the time.

As a kid, I hated Disney movies... with a passion. I loved the art of it.. but the stories was like being read to by Richard Simmons or Michael Jackson. I appreciate them NOW as an adult, but as a kid, give me a missle firing giant robot that destroys cities any day.

Anime is great, and why kids LOVE it, is because they aren't made for kids. And kids recognize that they are being patronized like they are in American animation. American animation isn't made with kids in mind as much as they are made with the bitching lawsuit happy parent groups in mind. Thus the mediocrity, and why Anime is rising in popularity. Though.. The Incredibles was fantastic, with the machine guns blazing in the first 2 min. and the acknowledgement that DEATH was a possibiltiy was real good. ..And that movie will become a classic.

I don't understand those cats out there that like ONLY anime. All forms of animation is good to me.
And I think classic Disney and what Pixar is putting out doesn't give Anime any room to brag.

[Big Grin] Hilarious! I don't have a long attention span for such things, but for the first three posts or so, I was cracking up. Can anyone over there finish a complete sentence? Forgive me for posting this bit of fluff myself, but I think that if any of you on this board are dealing with confidence problems, reading a few posts in that alternate universe will cure them in no time. And I wouldn't worry about those posters becoming the future of animation: a certain professor I know, when he sees a portfolio that includes Manga or anime-style work, will get frighteningly quiet and then refuse to see the rest of the portfolio. I imagine that he's not the only one.

Sidenote: I have nothing against anime in general and certainly plenty of complaints about other varieties of animation, but there is very little anime that really impresses me, and the students I refer to are the kind that ONLY like anime and can't distinguish quality from crap. For further reference, see the link posted above....

Nope. It's "Mr. Eisner".
