Urban Planner Molyvann Sees City on Verge of Collapse

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

I watch animated movies.

I'd mention having studied animation with a Disney instructor, but a certain poster would get frothy-mouthed about his skepticism of my CV and life experience, and we'd end up arguing.

So, I watch animated movies.

Dragging this right off topic, which normally winds me up, but anyway...

What is it with animated series/movies that they need to make such stupid looking characters with fucked up anatomy and features? Is there some kind of annual award for the most bizarre character or is it an in-joke among animators or what?

Seriously, it's about marketability. If it's too non-generic, it becomes regionalised, and unless that's what the animation house is after (think Pocahontas or Aladdin, or where they want the character to resemble the famous voice talent) they want it to speak to as many cultures as possible, just by changing the voicing.

I'm a fan of Van the Man. It is a crying shame his contributions to the city have been neglected and his legacy vandalized.
It was his hat Mr Krabs. He was number one.

And sorry to go against expat doctrine and the holy scriptures of the Cambodia Daily, but I think his "modern Khmer architecture" looks shite and the Independence Monument which didn't use that style was the only awe inspiring structure he designed.

In my next installment of "Expat Sacrilege Weekly" I'll explain why Mu Sochua would be a useless PM and that Kong Nai has less musical talent than the Cheeky Girls.
