    Sometimes it isn't the message...it's the manner of delivery. icon_wink.gif

    And the other famous quote-

    "If you don't have anything nice to say, come sit next to me."

    I'm often suspicious of people who have nothing but something nice to say.

    if you have nothing nice to say then keep it to yourself or i will punch in your mouth. unless its not directed at me.

    however, sometimes things need to be said.

    GEEK OUT MOMENT....
    This post made me smile and tear up a little. The animator who is responsible for this scene was an inspiration to me, and someone I knew. Ollie Johnston. Ollie was a bit of a miracle and a great guy. A mentor to lots of folks, and a genius of a talent. He died three years ago this very week, and I was thinking of him today, in fact.

    This scene is almost an accident, as the vocals are by a (then) kid named Peter Behr, whom others wrote off in auditions, but whom Ollie found charmingly perfect because he was a naturally awkward little kid. His stumbling delivery of this line was nearly an out-take and Ollie mined it for cinematic gold.

    I wrote this piece for an online publication when Ollie died, at age 95, just one year after receiving the Presidential Medal of the Arts.

    Ollie was the longest surviving animator who had started with Disney back at the Hyperion Studio in Silver Lake district of Los Angeles (there's a Ralph's there now) and a very dear, loving, gifted man.

    Thanks for the reminder and the serendipity....(and tolerating this uber geeky moment...)

    Now back to your regularly scheduled RJ forum mayhem. icon_redface.gif

    And sometimes you just have to tell people the truth even if it is not nice.

    I am so glad I took a moment or two out of my day to read your article Rhett. Growing up, as so many of us baby-boomers did, on Disney, and being an artist myself, having worked in Disneyland and in one of the innumerable stores, when I was younger, I used to be such a fan of Ollie and Frank, et al... I read the article link, and what a real joy to see someone who truly loved these men and their contributions to our collective experiences of life... a bit late, but thanks for such a great article, on such a great man, about such a great subject....

    But I have learned that some people will respond positively to aggression than just plain old manners. Not saying Im a rude guy or anything, but I have been a bit blunt enough times to not feel quite so guilty any more... and it seems to work.
