2009 Animated Films You Probably Don't Know About

Sep. 8th, 2009 | 08:00 pm

Read the title. Yush.
ALL of these were (or will be) released in the theaters this year.....but not HERE....
France, Spain, and Germany mostly!!
While some are vulgar, some are cute, all have quite nice feature-worthy animation!
Look.....if you dare!!!

The Secret of Kells
Country of Origin: Ireland-Belgium-France
Type of Animation: 2D
Synopsis: (taken from Animation Magazine ) "A young orphan living with the monks of the Abbey of Kells, a monastery during the Middle Ages, gets involved in the illustration of the famous illustrated manuscript."

Lascars: The Movie (WARNING! Some Adult Content in the trailer n' such)
Country of Origin: France
Type of Animation: 2D
Synopsis: (taken from Animation Magazine ) "Over the course of one hot summer, a group of streetwise homies find plenty of action in their hometown. When Jose falls in love with a pretty suburban girl, his courtship is interrupted by his self-styled gangster best friend who is on the run from a psychotic boss."

Totally Spies! The Movie (yes......they DID make this.....)
Country of Origin: France
Type of Animation: 2D
Synopsis: (taken from Animation Magazine ) "After 150 episodes and five season, fans of the popular TV series will finally find out the origin story of the crime-fighting fashionista team (Clover, Alex and Sam) from Beverly Hills High in this summer confection, packed with bright colors, outrageous outfits and super gadgets. The show was created by French studio Marathon’s toppers Vincent Chalvon-Demersay and David Michel."

Type of Animation: 2D (rotoscope perhaps (?))
Synopsis: (taken from Animation Magazine ) "Based on J.R. Ackerley’s well-loved 1956 novel about the strong friendship between a man and a German Shepherd he rescues. This new indie feature skews older than most animated movies, but promises to be a powerful work."

Country of Origin: Not quite sure on this one.....
Type of Animation: Stop Motion
Synopsis: (taken from Animation Magazine ) "An unlikely pen-pal friendship develops between Mary, a lonely eight-year-old girl in Melbourne, and Max, a 44-year-old, obese man with Asperger's Syndrome living in New York."

Jul. 17th, 2009 | 12:34 am

I can FINALLY post this!
....fun beans.
Expect lots o' stuff for purchasing.....yes?

And now for the LOOOONG pre-typed list of stuff pertaining to the con that you don't have to read unless you're interested.....

The Manga Swap
The AFO has begun to do a tradition called the “manga swap”, where people can “swap” their unwanted manga and anime.

I decided to put up a list of the ones I’ll be swapping! NIFTY!

The Cat Returns DVD
Nauciaa DVD

In addition, I’ll also be bringing my Pokemon cards along. I have a WHOLE bunch of vintage ones, and first editions.
I like to collect specific types of Pokemon cards….. they’re great for reference, and I’m quite proud of my collection.

Several of the Pokemon I’m trying to find are normally quite common in the decks too….
The list of the ones I look for are as follows:
Charmander, Pikachu, Sandshrew, Clefairy, Vulpix, Jigglypuff, Oddish, Persian, Psyduck, Growlithe, Abra, Slowpoke, Dewgong, Chansey, Eevee, (any of Eevee’s evolutions….particularly Flareon and Umbreon), Dratini, Dragonite, Mew, Cyndaquill, Pichu, Igglybuff, Togepi, Mareep, Flaaffy, Marill, Azumarill, Skitty, Minun, Plusle, Piplup, Shinx, Pachirisu, Shaymin, (and several others I'm too lazy to list....)

….and in addition to the CARDS, I’ll also be brining my DS too!
I’m looking (specifically) for a (official) Jirachi, Slowking, and Shuckle.
I also like shinys too…..you know…..because shinys are your friend?
I have a WHOLE LOAD of rare stuff I’m willing to trade for……including the rare Toys R US Regigas (not much use to me…..since I don’t plan on getting Pokemon Platinum any time soon….(I’m saving up for Soul Silver instead!))
I also have a (equally rare) Gamestop Darkrai, and Deoxys…..and several Pokemon from the 10th anniversary celebration (before the wonderful DS was even invented) including Latios and Latias.
I also have doubles of Regirock, Regice, Registeel, and Rayquaza too. Yup.
(can you TELL I have absolutely NO LIFE when it comes to this stuff? LOL….)

I’ll also try to join the Pokemon competition again this year! (perhaps I can make it past the Semi-finals......we shall see)
I'm actually equally as happy if I make it past the first round. A LOT of you have powerful Pokemon, YUP!

YUSH! The Toonfreak is over n' out with the news!

I just spent (basically) the entire day reading "Alex & Me" (not to be confused with the equally as sad "Marley & Me" ).

Alex was an African Grey Macaw that was "trained" to (not only) talk, but also understand the english words that he spoke.
Perhaps as close to any such incidence we'll EVER get to understanding how animals think, see the world, and view us too.

Here's some video of Alex doing his thing!

In case you're wondering, the book describes the "I wanna go back" call, as Alex's way of telling you he wants to go back in his cage.
The book also describes Alex as having series of tantrums when he can't get what he asks for.....such as asking for water in the middle of the learning session in order to delay doing what his trainers ask.
He had the same brain capacity as a 5-year-old, and would often display his displeasure with these mild forms of frustration toward his trainers.

The Cute, The Disgusting, The Stupid

May. 20th, 2009 | 10:15 pm

 Hey there guys! It's me again, bringing the products of watching too much TV!!! First: THE CUTE!!! If you guys haven't heard about this story on the news yet, you should check it out! It's one of the most uplifting (and adorable) stories I've seen on the news to date! This happened two days ago: www.youtube.com/watch AWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!! DUCKYS!!!!!!!! ^0^ BOY! Is that guy a good catch or WHAT? O.o ...and speaking of cute........ I was watching Animal Planet the other day, when the screne showed an animal that was just SOOOOOO adorable, I couldn't help but classify it as a new favorite animal of mine! It runs as fast as Sonic, is cuter then Pikachu, and is a smart little jubbly! Ladies and Gents, THE ELEPHANT SHREW!: www.youtube.com/watch .....and now for something COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. Have you ever seen something, and wondered to your self:"Who would ever think that THIS would be a good idea?" Well, I have found the ultimate two themes that should be kept as FAR AWAY AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE FROM EACH OTHER. (Lord.....how I WISH this was a joke.....I really do) THIS is a restaurant called "Modern Toilet", and you'll NEVER guess what the theme is......

 .....yummy. X P They even have a dessert called "Poop Ice Cream". Remind me NEVER to eat ice cream EVER again...... Someone must have been high when they came up with the idea....I'll tell you one thing: If I ever want to loose my apitite quickly, I'll walk into THAT place. BLEECH!!! : P Last on the list...... .....my brother introduced me to the cult classic "Duckman" the other day. I've got 6 words for you: Fluffy & Uranus FTW.  (WARNING!!! COURSE LANGUAGE AND VIOLENCE INCLUDED.........)

The LAST Foster's Episodes

May. 3rd, 2009 | 08:54 pm

EDIT- What did you guys think of the ending? Good? Bad? I'd love to hear some comments! By the way, I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. McCracken for making such a masterpiece of a show! Everyone who enjoyed Foster's, be sure to thank http://cmcc.deviantart.com/ for all his great work! ^_^
Foster's, Foster's, Foster's, Foster's, Foster's, FOSTERS!!!!!! XD WHOO!!!
Why do I LOVE this show so much?!?!? ^x^
It's quite a shame they're airing the last 5 episodes today, I'm going to miss it so....... No other animated series has made me laugh as hard as this one. -_-;;;
I found something that kind of made me mad yesterday....they already aired 3 of the 5 episodes they're showing today in ENGLAND, but in FEBRUARY!!!! WTF CN?!?! WTF? >.<
It's not right when a show is made IN AMERICA, and shipped all the way to another country before the original country that worked on it can see it. >.> There's just something WRONG with that entire concept. The people who originally made the show should get to see their hard earned labor on the tube before anyone else. (nods)

I leave you with this Foster's AMV!
