Nightmare Before Christmas Animator Takes On The Land Of Oz!

nightmare before christmas animator takes on oz

There are WAY too many Wizard of Oz-inspired movies coming out…and now there's one more.

We must say, though, we're intrigued by this one, which is titled Oz Wars, and is being helmed by The Nightmare Before Christmas animator Mike Johnson.

Here's what Johnson had to say about Oz Wars:

"[It's an] animated action-adventure story, but unlike most animated films, it's not just for kids. The Land of Oz will be reimagined using stop-motion to create a world that's dark, slick, sexy and dangerous."

A dark, sexy Oz, eh? Could be inneresting.

We suddenly see visions of pre-teenagers shedding off their Jack Skellington hoodies and flocking to Hot Topic to pick up new hoodies with anorexic, pale, black-haired Dorothy on them.

Will U go see The Nightmare Before Oz Oz Wars?

Jersey Shore's Angelina Attacked At A Mall!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooReality TV

Oh dayum!

Jersey Shore's Angelina Pivarnick says she was attacked by a "rowdy group" of young people at a Staten Island mall on Friday, claiming she even has a welt on her head to prove it!

The Staten Island Dump, a name given to her by her Jersey cast mates, claims she was shopping in a Hot Topic, possibly buying some hot pink hair dye or the latest My Chemical Romance t-shirt, when somebody attacked her from behind, apparently striking her in the back of the head.

And not only that, but Angelina's friend and shopping companion also said that someone threw a bottle at Angelina, skimming her lip.

The odd thing is that mall security had a slightly different story, saying that a few people were taking pictures and filming Angelina, when things got out of hand and somebody accidentally hit her in the face.

Angelina is reportedly still talking to police about the incident. Sources say she does have a welt on the back of her head so maybe she is telling the truth?

What do U think?? Mall attack or accidental smack??

Knocking Off Fashion Is Legal!

So this is how Hot Topic gets away with shiz like this!

Counterfeit experts and law professors Kal Raustiala and Chris Sprigman have revealed why it's so easy for fashion copycats to get away with such things: because it's legal!

At least in the United States.

The knock off gurus explain:

American law does not protect most fashion designs. Copyright law views fashion designs not primarily as artistic works, but rather as “useful articles,” and useful things are not granted copyright protection. This rule reflects the fact that useful things are supposed to be the domain of patent law. But clothing designs virtually never qualify for patent protection, because they are almost never “novel” – i.e., truly new – in the way patent law requires.

They do point out that while labels are fully protected by trademark law, the actual design and what not isn't.

So in a way, and we hate to admit this, Kim Kardashian was kinda sorta right about her Fendi knock offs.

And while this may be a low blow to designers like Jeremy Scott and Iskren Lozanov, Raustiala and Sprigman believe this type of thing is good for the fashion industry. Says the duo:

Copying helps to create trends. It then helps to destroy them: as more and more designers hop on to a trend, the look becomes overdone, and the most fashion-forward consumers hop off. Copying, in other words, accelerates the fashion cycle.

We're sure those designers bank account could argue that point, but it makes sense if you really think about it.

What do U think? Are copycats good or bad???
