Pop culture of the past and present. [Feb. 12th, 2009|05:16 pm]
[mood |calmcalm]
[music |Billy Joel]

Mickey Mouse was originally created as a replacement for Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, a character Walt Disney had created, along with Ub Iwerks, for Universal Studios. When Disney requested a larger budget for his popular Oswald series, Universal quickly fired him and hired other artists and writers to work on the show--to which Universal owned all the rights. Disney learned an important lesson from this incident and made sure that, in the future, he owned the rights to all of his creations.

And for all the dorks. :)

That was cute! The guy did a nice job getting the action and sound effects to be in sync.

How's the job stuff going? (Or is it too soon to ask??)

I thought so too! I was impressed.

And they said I'd know in a week, and that was Wednesday. Soooo. I'm not holding my breath. I'm under qualified, but it had a lot of arts things to it, so I would be really good at it. I just don't have the qualifications they're looking for. They want a graduate degree. hahaha. I need to finish my undergrad first. The fact that I got an interview was an anomaly.
