Happy Birthday Animation Podcast!

It was one year ago today that the first show was released. The site’s been around for a bit longer than that, and the idea is even older, but this seems like the right date to celebrate. Podcasting wasn’t even a hobby over two years ago so I could have never imagined that I would [...]

Show 015 – Glen Keane, Part Two

Ask the Listeners: What do you recommend?

This is the first of the ‘Ask the Listeners’ posts, inspired by Ikumi’s comment in Show 15. She loves Manga and says that there’s much more inspiration out there than mainstream art. So I’d like to pose this question to you, the listeners: What is something that everyone should see, but probably haven’t? It can [...]

We’re back online

If you didn’t know, the site was offline for a day while I transfered to a new host. It was fairly painless. I think in the whole process I only lost one or maybe two of the most recent comments. Well I’m glad that’s all done! I also tried to reduce some of the visual [...]

Downtime coming up

I’m transfering my site to a new host in the next week or so. I can’t say exactly when because it’s out of my control. When that happens, the website will most likely not be available for about a day, and that’s if I get to it right away. I’ve decided to hold off on [...]

A quick check-in

Hey everybody,
I’ve been collecting a couple things in my head so it’s time to dump them here. (My head only holds so much.)

Comments
Thanks to everyone who’s commented here on the site and via email. Generally, I’ll respond to the site comments first since the emails I get usually have more detailed questions, but I do try to answer all of them. So if you’ve sent me mail, I’ve got it, I just haven’t had a chance to respond yet.

Odeo Voicemail
Thanks for all the Odeo voice messages too! Like I said in the last show, the audio is so much better!

Survey
The survey is still active, so click it in the header, or here, if you haven’t taken it. I have a target number of participants and you’re already half way there. It’s giving me some great insight to who you guys are (and who you’d like to hear on upcoming shows).

Badges (or buttons)
If you’ve been wanting an image to use on your site to link back to me, want no more. I’ve got a variety of sizes to choose from, so step right up and get your badges here.

Voting
I’ve kind of dropped the push for votes at Podcast Alley, but listener Paul’s comment rightly points out that it does help to get more listeners. If you’re so inclined, you can vote from the link on the homepage (under Feedback), or through this link. Thanks Paul.

Show 014 – Glen Keane, Part One

Ariel, The Beast, Aladdin, Pocahontas, Tarzan, John Silver. The list should say it all. Animation hero to many, Glen Keane has created many of the most memorable characters in modern animation with performances that rival those of any flesh and blood actor. In part one, Glen talks about being an artist, discovering animation, and his [...]

Animation Talk

All right, one more post before the next show. Here’s some more animation related talk to check out. I’ll put this one first because the series starts tomorrow. As the Pixar: 20 Years of Animation exhibition travels to The Science Museum in South Kensington, London, they are kicking off a series called Talk Animation. If [...]
