Flash’s latest love interest: the sexy-as-all-get-out toilet paper roll. He just sat there talking to himself inside of the roll and making flirty sounds this morning and it was about THE funniest thing ever. I love my little weirdo.

Thank you, Chicken People

Thank you so much, all of you that have been interested in learning about chickens and how to give them a good life. Chickens are really incredible and have so long been considered disposable, stupid, and worthless beyond food, and nothing could be further than the truth. I have been lucky enough to be around birds my entire life, and have had companion parrots since I was 5 years old. I love my parrots, but it is clear that they are complex, emotional, and for the most part still very wild animals and only make good pets/companions for a small number of people. Chickens have been domesticated for thousands of years, and love living around people. My chickens have been the sweetest and most entertaining pets/companions I’ve had in my life, and I’m happy that so many people are interested in them! Chickens are often what people think they want in a pet bird but don’t realize it– intelligent, entertaining, personable, and some are very friendly. Some will sit in my lap and nap while I pet them like a cat, with no emotional baggage or social behavior that is complex beyond the understanding of the average owner (the way parrots are!). Chickens are just wonderful pets. That said, please don’t make a chicken into something it is not; only a few breeds are truly suitable as house pets, and most chickens are very social. Meaning: Most (not all but most) chickens are happiest outdoors with other chickens! As with all animals, careful research and suitable housing will result in a much happier relationship!

Favorite animated film from each of these major animation studios: Walt Disney, Studio Ghibli, Pixar, Dreamworks Animation, Blue Sky Studios, Sony Pictures Animation, Laika, Illumination

Ooooh, this is an interesting question. I might tag a certain someone to do it as well.

Walt Disney Animation: Oh man, it’s a bit hard to choose because I love so many, but I’ll have to go with The Great Mouse Detective, a great childhood favorite of mine. Mainly love it because of the lovable villain Ratigan voiced by Vincent Price.

Studio Ghibli: I haven’t seen every Ghibli film yet (I just have a few more to go), but out of the ones I’ve seen, I’d have to say Princess Mononoke, it’s just so grand in scale and feels like a great epic live-action masterpiece if it was animated.

Pixar: This is a tough one, because recently Inside Out can’t get out of my head. (No pun intended, lolol) So for the longest time it has been Finding Nemo, but Inside Out might trump it.

DreamWorks Animation: I’m probably gonna be with the majority here in saying that How to Train Your Dragon is my favorite.

Although I do like the stuff they did with 2-D animation in the past.

Blue Sky Studios: I do like the original Ice Age, but I think my love of parrots makes Rio my favorite.

Sony Pictures Animation: Phil Lord and Chris Miller are geniuses and their comedy really shines with Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. I also think it’s the first CGI movie to truly understand how to bring exaggerated 2-D movement into 3-D animation.

Laika: Although I reeeeeally like Coraline, I’ll choose Paranorman because it’s just freaking amazing, still the most breathtaking stop-motion I’ve ever seen.

Illumination: Despicable Me… honestly, they haven’t made a lot yet so it’s kinda difficult not to pick their first, because it’s also their best. I hate it for the current Minions trend currently though. They were the worst part of the movie!

BONUS: Don Bluth film: C’mon, you’re not gonna put Don Bluth films on this list? Anyways, it should come to no surprise to anyone that The Land Before Time is my favorite.

EXTRA BONUS: Though it’s a colmunation of a bunch of studios, The Lego Movie is probably going to remain my favorite animated movie of all time for a while. It’s just that good to me.

EXTRA EXTRA BONUS: The Secret of Kells was good, but Song of the Sea is a freaking masterpiece.

I think I’ll tag a couple people with this ask, so jaxblade, cellspex, hirosashii, jimforce​ aaaaand tommyoliverblogs with this list.
