CalArts
Their animation program is tough to get into, i used to know a few people who went there they went as illustration majors tho. The animation concentration seems to concentrate more on the 3d aspect of animation. You take 2d in your foundation years but then move out of it. This was awhile ago though before flash hit its prime time. So maybe thats changed in recent years. I'd be interested to know actually. Its a solid school and probably one of the best programs on the west coast.

RISD maybe for their traditional animation department, but their computer animation program is outdated and weak. that's the reason i didn't even bother finishing my application for RISD. for east coasters looking into computer art/animation, id look into Ringling, SCAD, and SVA. They all have very strong computer arts programs. Also, for those of you who think traditional animation is what you want, think hard about it before you go that path. Lots and lots of people here at SVA who originally were in traditional animation switched or want to switch to computer animation.

That's been a trend here for a couple of years now, I'm glad I'm not that traceable on the interwubs. The only few hits you get when Googling my name are from the university and Newgrounds I think. I don't have a Facebook or MySpace account, not an active one anyway, I'm actually glad I never really got into that. Pictures of your drunk self puking on someone at a party might be cool to you and your friends, your future employer might disagree. People tend to be more open about their likes and dislikes (their life in general) on the internet because for some stupid reason they think they're more anonymous online (quite the opposite really), that kind of thinking could really get you in trouble sometime.

I pretty much agree with everything mnwfi said. For whatever its worth, RISD was my first choice when i got out of high school.. i got in and couldnt afford it. They offered very little in scholarship and halp. Start savin up. Also Rhode Island.. cmon who the fuck wants to live there!!!!

I applied to Ringling also, i was on the verge of pulling the trigger and then found that Sarasota(?) is too sleepy of a town. Its a good school tho.. i believe ed skudder went there and that dude is da bombbb. I dont know much about SVA.. but you can ask Dan that. he seems pretty happy. And its NYC, cant beat that.

Anyways thats my 3 cents. All of which i need back because I can use it towards my financial aid at RISD.

It's true, but if you can't act sensibly on the internet, how can you be employable? I find it hilarious when people have naked pictures on their myspaces (I wank to them, I'm not complaining, I'm just saying...) and then they wonder when people see them, hear about the girl who took photos of herself using an iPod nano to create sexual pleasure? She took pictures and posted them on /b/ (4chan) and then a day later, someone created a "fake" facebook account with the pictures and added her friends and family, then showed the family members the pictures of the iPod nano in her vagina.

Being silly on the internet is bad.

Im rarely active on the social networking sites, i just think thats a bit far when employees facebook you :/ Most time the person you are on the internet is quite a bit different from real life, usually you gain a confidence boost online.

The you on the internet is pretty much the real you without restrictions of getting punched in the face for being a dick though. Most companies that do that have hundreds of resumes to sort through and I'm sure online searching is just a way to help them pull out the 420 crowd or so.

Bitter nothing, Thanksgiving is a silly festival. Ooh, let's give thanks (to who?) by buying loads of food and spending the day with doing boring things with our boring relatives on an arbitrary day in Autumn. It's a nothing "holiday".


The water in Majorca don't taste like what it oughta.

That basically sums up what I think of Thanksgiving. Plus nothing will be open so no pizza for me :(

If only New York was still Dutch... Imagine how much fun that would be, windmills instead of skyscrapers, coffeeshops instead of mcDonalds, everybody would go to work on their bicycles wearing the latest wooden shoes and pick up a hooker on their way home...

It's funny whenever an American brings up the Boston tea thing or any war in which we didn't do particularly well, because us Brits have no idea about any of it. Sure, we've all heard of the tea thing through the American media and stuff, but we don't know or care too much about it. We only get taught things about ancient history and wars in which we won (in high school at least, further education may delve into lesser known events but who does History at A level?), so anything else is pretty unknown.

Unless there was a "Horrible Histories" book on it, I must have missed that one.

We do about Henry VIII and the Tsarist system and i believe, eventually, the Russian Revolution. My friend also does history and she does Henry VIII and Mussolini. No losing wars for us.

I can't imagine the war of 1812 wasn't really taught it just illustrates how spoiled we are with instant communication. I'm a little rusty on the subject but here goes.

There were these guys who wanted to go to war in hopes of the U.S conquering Canada congress at the time wasn't all that for it. The UK and Napoleon were having some marital issues and you imposed trade blockades on France that interfered with our neutral trading which our merchants didn't like. Our British ambassador lobbied with little sucess to get the restrictions lifted along with the British merchants. Eventually they were lifted but without instant communication the U.S didn't know that, so 2 days later congress voted to go to war with the UK. We failed at invading/capturing Canada eventually everyone realized we were fighting for nothing so we're like aight lets stop. Some treaty was signed where neither side lost anything. The UK still had troops in New Orleans after this treaty was signed and we had an American General (Andrew Jackson) with plans to attack. News of the treaty didn't arrive till after our forces slaughtered 4000 British Naval troops.

Andrew Jackson went on to be president basing a lot of his campaign on his war hero status for a battle he shouldn't have ever fought.

I see how the tea party wouldn't be that interesting to you guys though.


I'm cool now... Right guys?... Guys?
