Why is a raven like a writing desk? A Straight Dope Classic from Cecil's Storehouse of Human Knowledge April 18, 1997 Dear Cecil: This is something that drives me crazy every time I hear it: "Why is a raven like a writing desk?" — Mary, via the Internet Dear Mary: This riddle is famous, although it's the rarefied kind of fame that entails most people never having heard of it. "Have you guessed the riddle yet?" At this point most of us are thinking: Ho-ho, that Lewis Carroll, is he hilarious or what? Oh, they say. Lewis Carroll himself got bugged about this so much that he was moved to write the following in the preface to the 1896 edition of his book: Enquiries have been so often addressed to me, as to whether any answer to the Hatter's Riddle can be imagined, that I may as well put on record here what seems to me to be a fairly appropriate answer, viz: 'Because it can produce a few notes, tho they are very flat; and it is never put with the wrong end in front!' Did this discourage people? Not bad for amateurs. Cecil replies:

Animated cartoon A horse animated by rotoscoping from Eadweard Muybridge's 19th century photos. The animation consists of 8 drawings, which are "looped", i.e. repeated over and over. An animated cartoon is a film for the cinema, television or computer screen, which is made using sequential drawings,[Note 1] as opposed to animations in general, which include films made using clay, puppet and other means. History[edit] Early years[edit] The phenakistoscope (1832), zoetrope (1834) and praxinoscope (1877), as well as the common flip book, were early animation devices to produce movement from sequential drawings using technological means, but animation did not develop further until the advent of motion picture film.

How To Train Yourself To Be In The Mood You Want Dec 27, 2010 When you have major changes going on in your life, or you’re just frustrated about where you are, it’s easy to get trapped in a cycle of depression, bad moods and frustration. I know, I’ve been there … and when I’m not careful, I still get there more than I want to. But when I’ve had a particularly hard time, I hit these moments where I’m in a foul mood, or I’m just feeling paralyzed, and I’m just stuck.

The reason for this is that steps take the emotion out of our situation and give us direction to simply act. You can call these verbal step-by-step tools anchors if you want, because they’re ways to anchor your emotional state to a time where you knew what to do and you felt prepared. Think about it. Dave

Traditional animation How Animated Cartoons Are Made (1919) Traditional animation, (or classical animation, cel animation, or hand-drawn animation) is an animation technique where each frame is drawn by hand. The technique was the dominant form of animation in cinema until the advent of computer animation. Process[edit] Storyboards[edit] Voice recording[edit] Before true animation begins, a preliminary soundtrack or "scratch track" is recorded, so that the animation may be more precisely synchronized to the soundtrack. In the case of most pre-1930 sound animated cartoons, the sound was post-synched; that is, the sound track was recorded after the film elements were finished by watching the film and performing the dialogue, music, and sound effects required. Animatic[edit] Often, an animatic or story reel is made after the soundtrack is created, but before full animation begins. Advertising agencies today employ the use of animatics to test their commercials before they are made into full up spots. Layout[edit]
