http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mp3.com#History

Mp3.com ultimately became a historically significant URL for indie artists, who in the site's heyday provided most of the content there. From its beginning to when Vivendi took over and eventually evicted the indies, it was a once ever mecca for unsigned bands and solo acts. Now that pie is divided up into many other varieties of music sites but for over 3 years, pretty much every artist who had music on MP3 files could be found in the same place and had the web address https://www.mp3.com/name-of-act. The nature of the situation was a chemical reaction; all these musicians and songwriters who had for years harbored dreams of stardom without any outlet for their music gathered in one place and expressed themselves quite colorfully in words and pictures on the site's legendary forum.

For a time it looked like this continent of new artists would indeed change the music business but several factors came about to stall the momentum of mp3.com. The pay-for-play experiment that rewarded artists monetarily for their downloads was sabotaged by the artists themselves. Honest acts were robbed of their intended share by enterprising gamers who exploited the system with programmed play bots and download gangs (posses) who would play long songlists often with the volume turned down to run up artificial numbers that equated into big bucks. Mp3.com tried and threw numerous cheaters off the site but they could not control the gaming due to having a product that was not tactile. Also, Napster became more and more popular and since free songfiles of name artists started to "become available", a fair amount of the mp3.com audience migrated there.

Still, for those artists who were present, nothing has ever matched the original mp3.com for that initial explosion of creativity (with many talents who could hold their own in the mainstream), and that world within a world of intense public scandals, raw emotion, and virtual stardom.

yeah that's why it stuck in my mind. roger rabbit's animation director wrote that kickass animation book, he seems like a dude who knows his poo poo and he obviously took his job seriously with roger rabbit

and then chuck jones just comes and says "nah this is bad and wrong"

it seriously saddens me to see people who are genius like chuck jones and john k being so narrow-minded like this

As his name indicates, he was blond. The Noldor were dark-haired, so this must mean he was related somehow to the Vanyar, Eldar who were blond. His blond hair is considered a mark of his distinction.

Blond hair was also found in the Noldor royal family (House of Finw), among the descendants of Indis of the Vanyar, second wife of their High King Finw namely in the Golden House of Finarfin, his third son, which included Galadriel, who appears in The Lord of the Rings. Both the Vanyar and the Noldor kindreds lived in the fair city of Tirion upon the hill of Tna in Valinor for a time, and in other parts of the royal family tree it has been shown that other Vanyar married in, so it is conceivable that the two groups mingled in more than just the royal line.

Anime and Manga Research Circlejerk posted:

Our goal is to build and maintain a diverse community of scholars engaged in the academic study of anime and manga, their associated (sub)cultures worldwide, and (tangentially) Japanese popular culture in general.

I am a social scientist specializing in otaku studies.

I'm an assistant professor at the University of California, Irvine. My research centers on the literacy and social practices of English language learners writing in online environments. Specifically, I have been interested in anime-based fanfiction.

I'm probably in this group because I am producer / director etc of Otakumentary a "Trekkies" type documentary about North American Anime fans. This would be my area of expertise, even though I know a lot about anime etc as well. Otakumentary is on the backburner until I get my life in order.

My name is Pierre De Jaeger and I work with the Brussels based organisation Constant, focusing mainly on technology, gender and copyright issues (http://www.constantvzw.com) I'm particulary interested in science-fiction and manga and how they can relate to these topics.

My thesis is on Internet Yaoi Fan fiction.

My research interest is currently in the English-language "boy's love" manga's online fan community, and I'm planning to launch a web-based survey as soon as our Institutional Review Board gives me a thumbs-up.

The theme for my tesina is, you guess it, Otaku subculture. And so I'm trying to evidence the existence of such subculture here in the little island where I live, Puerto Rico (located in the Caribbean between Cuba and the Virgin Islands).

My research focuses on approaching postmodernity by means of Japanese anime, and hope to shift such marginalized subject matter into academia.

I am currently conducting an ongoing investigation into the legal aspects of anime; in relation to Intellectual Property rights, the war on fansubbers, the constitutionality of UNICEF of Japan influencing the Japanese government on the appearance of under age anime characters in anime and the hentai sub genre, and also the rise of what I call "Manga Murders" and "fandom" related crimes.
