The Calico Dragon (1935)

In the early days of animation, many companies were competing for movie theater bookings as a box-office draw, just as comic strips sold newspapers. Both were aimed at an adult audience.

The Calico Dragon is not spectacular until you consider that early film animation was a brute-force endeavor. At 12-16 frames per second, a five minute short could require 4,800 cells, sketched, inked and painted by hand, sandwiched under glass one at a time over the adjusted moving background, and each cell photographed by a motion picture camera capable of shooting one frame at a time. Then they had to develop and edit the film, add an etched soundtrack AND make duplicates of the master to distribute. Talk about labor-intensive artistry. Were it not profitable, no sane human would have bothered with it.

Harman-Ising figured out a way to animate fabric patterns, not just for the backgrounds, but for the moving figures.


I don’t blame you if you don’t watch the whole thing – the cloying sappiness of it all was tiring for me, too – so jump to The Dragon Song at about 04:20. I’ll wait.

Did you spot it? Happens at about 05:25. It wasn’t blatant but the song and the subtle innuendo had to have been an inside joke to the animators.

‘Scuse Me, But Have We Met Before?

Dogs crack me up because they’re all jerks. Lovable jerks, for sure, but they’re still idiots, and they have no shame. Dogs just enjoy doing what dogs do.

Simple things amaze them. Every weekday you come home from work, and they’re ecstatic that you were able to find your way back on your own. When they hear a siren, they howl to help spread the alarm. Throw a snowball into a drift and they’ll spend 15 minutes looking for it before they realize that they’ve been had, and then they want you to do it again.

But dogs know how to play us as well. Sure Rover is happy to see you, licking your face and all, but he remembers where his tongue was a few minutes before, even if you didn’t see him doing it.

When that happens you’ve been Dog Pwnd on The Overnight Open Thread.

56 Years Since Tornados Were Invented

tornados suck donkeys

Tornados suck. When Mother Nature gets all humpy, she yanks the Universal Electrolux from the closet and, well, you know what she’s capable of when she’s in her hissyfit mood.  It’s not fun, and there’s nothing we mortals can do about it except to hunker down in little dark dank fraidy-holes, play with our GI Joes and Barbies, and wait until the storm passes. Then we play Pick Up Sticks.

But that image blows me away, especially when AGW hucksters start huckstering about AGW. The obvious solution to tornado intervention is humidity control and mountain construction. Taxation just won’t cut it, but there’s one thing that’s sure to have a temporary coolng effect, and it’s called

Teapot Looks Like Hitler? I Don’t Think So.

You’ve probably seen/heard the story by now. There’s a JC Penney billboard advertisement on the 405 freeway near Culver City California that’s created some controversy. Apparently some southbound commuters in bumper-to-bumper traffic are getting way too many fumes in their noggins, and decided that an image of a teapot looks EXACTLY like Adolf Hitler.

I happened to be in the Culver City area last week, saw the billboard in question. I thought little of it, but after all the hoopla I shot this pic today:

JC Perney Billboard 405 S

Doesn’t look much like Hitler to me (maybe a bit like Charles Johnson circa 2004) but apparently the good folks at Breitbart.com bought into it as well.

Hitler, Chaplin, Johnson – I dunno, Babs, but I do know this.

Most of you know the history of The Blogmocracy. It began as a dare by Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs  – “If you don’t like it here, go start your own blog,” and that’s exactly what happened. LGF2.0 was created, and it morphed into The Blogmocracy, that spun off the red-headed stepchild dedicated to Charles 24/7, known as Diary of Daedalus.

For those who may have missed it, Diary of Daedalus posted a 6 Part Series titled “The Ruse and Fail of Little Green Footballs.”

Believe it or not, it was a project requested by the late Andrew Breibart in September 2011, and it took a year to complete. Dozens of people contributed to it, and The Prologue has the background. Rather (heh, I said Rather) than repost the series, here are the links. Note that there has been no refutation of the facts, posted with footnotes and verifiable links, by Charles Johnson or his minions to date.

That’s because neither Johnson nor his minions can deny the truth. Have at it.

Part 1 – Overview
Part 2 – The Ascendance of Charles Johnson and LGF
Part 3 – The Bannings
Part 4 – The Flounces
Part 5 – The Turnaround
Part 6 – Current Events & The Future Of LGF

Fun facts to know and tell.

It’s Magical AND Jazzy!

It’s time once again to fill in the gaps and plug the holes with irreverent snark on
The Overnight Open Thread.

It takes balls to do this.

“Those guys have big balls,” said Captain Obvious.
“But do they know about My Balls?” axed Bunk.

The vid was brought to my attention by Liberty Chick. I don’t know if she’s a golfer, but assuming she is, she’d probably choose My Balls to play with.

Be truthful: After viewing the vid, I bet you’d agree that My Balls are pretty damn good, and buying My Balls helps fund melanoma reasearch. If you purchase My Balls, you may need something suitable to carry them around in, like My Sack.

Not everyone likes to play with My Balls, so if any of you golfers would rather play with your own balls, let us know if you like My Sack.

There’s no reason for me to further ensnarken the basic concept, but don’t let that stop you, because it’s time for The Overnight Open Thread.
