I do most of my Internet reading on the iPad. When I see what looks like an interesting article, I save it into an app called Instapaper. This program allows me to peruse a lot of headlines quickly and put off reading the content until a later time. Bearing that in mind, you’ll forgive me for linking to a Mark Mayerson essay from back in February. (I know I’m slack. You don’t have to tell me.)
In “False Comparisons“, Mayerson refutes some comments made by Michael Barrier. Barrier believes that modern computer animation hasn’t undergone the same sort of aesthetic maturation that took place in the Disney films of the 1930s. Mayerson finds fault with Barrier’s logic and makes his points eloquently. This piece is definitely worth a look — despite my calling it to your attention three months late.
