Yarst! I just got an e-mail from my sister that her apartment house manager will no longer allow the tenants to receive any mail that won't fit into the small mailboxes there, which includes all of the books that I get. So I've been sending out change of address notices all afternoon to:

Fred Patten
c/o Sherrill Patten
11333 Moorpark Street, #471
Studio City, CA 91602

And do not say “Suite 471” or “no. 471” or any other variation or it won’t be delivered. Is this officious? Anyhow, I’ve gotten four acknowledgements, including one from the publicist at Chronicle Books who says she’s glad to get my new address before she sends out the publicity copies of “The Art of Zootopia”. So I should get it soon – before the public does.

Nice cover!

I'm relinking the newsbyte article here I posted from Animation World Network as these images might be finding their way into the published book.

Most of these are taken from Byron Howard's Twitter account since he drew them.

On a related note, the Zootopia soundtrack is also available for pre-orders.

Could furries whore themselves out for this movie any more?

Your rating: None

So, I'm just guessing, and I could be wrong here, but seeing as how I've gotten a lot of random downvotes recently, that this is desiring_change finally reaching the active stage of his posting cycle. Makes sense; about two months ago I said he'd be back in two months. It's like a disease; you can actually watch the symptoms and plot its course.

So, anyway, I'm going to skip the "shut up, desiring_change" bit, then you skip the actually acknowledging you are desiring_change bit, I skip the "you know what, why don't you contribute" bit, and you skip the customary "no, and you suck, crossie" final line and just go straight to the "disappear for two months bit," and we'll see y'all in April, how about that?

If you're not desiring_change, however, you still kind of suck. Troll harder.

Your rating: None

Also, if you actually are desiring_change, and that was you upvoting Rakuen and Patch (which would be new, I'll admit), was it just because you thought it would embarrass me, or because you actually agree with their take on the subject of gender politics (or maybe just movies). Honestly curious (not that I expect an honest answer), and apologies if that wasn't you, you aren't desiring_change, or some variation thereof.

Sometimes, when the alternative is Ebola-infected diarrhea, it's all you can do to upvote a plain ol' dog turd...

I have no idea what this is about, but maybe Flayrah could use some new commenters if it's all so predictable? Do you have anything in the queue about #tonytigergate? I'm kinda bumming because the new hosting for dogpatch press is acting really flaky so a burst of shares on my long piece got nipped in the bud. It's all fun time but it's nice to at least see the work get some eyeballs.

Your rating: None

Eh, desiring_change is a whole thing; I managed to piss him off/show weakness/something, I don't know, about five years ago and he keeps coming back and downvoting my comments at regular intervals before finally anonymously making trolly comments (he started with "furry = bestiality"). I usually scare him off by basically asking him for a story.

I always feel like I'm being paranoid when I think he's around but hasn't confirmed himself, but I'm always right. Or that it's just my ego making up somebody who would see himself as my enemy for five freakin' years. But no, it's the same guy, every time.

But anyway, no, we don't currently have anything on Tony Tiger planned or submitted. It's kind of "meh" over here on that subject.

Your rating: None

I read a piece on that on Slate, I think. It wasn't too bad. There have been a lot of stories about furries recently!

"If all mankind minus one, were of one opinion, and only one person were of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one person, than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind."

I don't plan on doing anything about any gates. The "gate" suffix is like nails on a chalkboard to me, even when done in a tongue in cheek manner.

"-gate" should have never been developed into a suffix for deep seeded controversy. I mean, think about it. If Watergate happened today, we'd have to call it "Watergate-gate".

And it also makes me wonder if 10 years from now if you asked someone what "Watergate" was if they'd go. "That thing that happened when they found out how deeply the Michigan state government knew about the lead in the water crisis in Flint?" I mean, it's a deep seeded controversy, and it has to do with water. And more then likely there will be a resignation involved? So I guess it'd be somewhat similar.

The -gate suffix is the new Godwin's law. Guess we got tired of Hitler and moved on to Nixon.

That and there is nothing I feel I can add about the Chester Cheetah/Tony Tiger situation that would cover what people could find in other places.

If someone else wants to do it, knock themselves out.

If Watergate happened today, we could just call it Watergate2.

Your rating: None

The -gate is satire/injoke. Ok I did cover it and hopefully the site will stay up now. http://dogpatch.press/2016/01/29/tonytigergate-daily-show/

That smug face makes me want to punch it.

Generic CGI smug face.

I hope the movie will have a good story, but that face... god how I hate it.

Well, I'll be...

Someone has a grumpysona! At least it's not a Dreamworks 'tude face. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DreamworksFace

I think he's saying it is, actually.

Your rating: None

It's not a Dreamworks 'tude face.
It's a Disney 'tude face.
Not to be confused with a Disney Toon Face

Your rating: None

Yeah, symmetrical eyebrows, come on. Dreamworks eyebrows make them way more punchable. Phil elmore has that in real life.

Your rating: None

I like his face, but is it me or does every single official picture of him always have that same face expression?
It's like the grand idol of that fox.

The book is already Out-of-Print on Amazon? :/

Your rating: None

I assume that means it's currently unavailable, because it won't be published until next month -- for the people who just see it on Amazon, don't bother to read the release date, and want it delivered immediately.

I use Amazon frequently, but I've never seen that message appear on any pre-order before. Usually the "Out of Print" message is reserved for items that will not be coming back in stock at all. The message will say something like "More to Come" or something similar if it will be available again.

What's more odd is the "Limited Availability". I don't believe Disney would make a book like this as a limited run. These books are popular collector items. Even "The Art of..." books for Big Hero 6 and Inside Out are still available.

Your rating: None

I wouldn't sweat it. Movie stuff can have complicated licensing to line up. I'd assume they're just shuffling listings in advance. Occasionally they recall or cancel something in the works and then put it out slightly modified. You ordinarily never see the canceled one, but on rare occasions if a few slip out then it is collectible. The main one won't be limited. Just wait for an update soon.

Your rating: None

Technically it wasn't available to begin with. They are just preorders. Maybe has something to do with it.

It is the "#1 new release" in its category (in the admittedly probably not exactly kicking "Animation" category); just completely guessing here (and a bit hopefully) but the demand probably surprised them. They also bumped up the release date to March 8, so Patch's theories might be right; either there was something wrong or that they wanted to change at the last minute, or they are having to go to a second printing before the book even technically goes on sale.

Your rating: None

Chronicle Books' publicist says that the out-of-print notice is Amazon's error, that it will be removed next Monday, and there is nothing to worry about. Thanks for calling it to her attention.

Thanks guys. I wasn't ready to order it just yet, which is why I kept an eye on it.
