Like, in general, not going into specific bands or covers. Because I could point out plenty of repainted toys I didn't like as much as the original, too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 May 2021 - 06:39 AM)

Is a musician covering a song "fixing" it?

@  Nevermore : (17 May 2021 - 05:15 AM)

So, then, isn't redecoing or retooling an existing toy also "fixing" someone else's art?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 10:07 PM)

A toy is not on the same level as a piece of drawn art, true, but it is 100% an entertainment product.

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 05:05 PM)

A toy is an object of utility, Comparing that to a piece of drawn art is grossly ignoring the difference between the two. Also, you didn't answer my questions. Try again.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 04:25 PM)

Part of the difference is that those covers are primarily one person's art. Sure, you probably have an inker and a colorist, but the lines and composition are one person. A toy however is a team design at pretty much all levels.

@  Cyoti : (16 May 2021 - 03:52 PM)

toymaking is a collaborative process, you have to make compromises and factories are going to get things wrong

Earthrise had a few holes, Runamuck's legs YIKES!

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 May 2021 - 03:37 PM)

I doubt that say, the designer for Kingdom Cheetor was happy about every bit of unpainted plastic on it.

@  Bass X0 : (16 May 2021 - 03:28 PM)

J Scott Campbell recently had his Spiderman cover "fixed" by someone online. A few weeks ago, someone on twitter "fixed" someone's Sonic the Hedgehog fan art where Sonic, Tails and Knuckles were drawn as humans. Both times and other times, the "fixer" gets called out and criticised as you shouldn't go around "fixing" someone else's art because its rude and disrespectful to the original artist. And I was thinking isn't "fixed your s*** for ya" exactly what toy customisers do?

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 02:28 PM)

Have you ever changed your car in any way whatsoever compared to the factory configuration, or are you leaving the designer's art unchanged in that case as well?

@  CORVUS : (16 May 2021 - 02:28 PM)

It's best not to ponder it too hard.

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 04:16 AM)

Bass X0, I really wonder sometimes how you come up with these random tangents apropos of nothing.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 04:11 AM)

It's collaborative art.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 May 2021 - 04:07 AM)

Toys are subject to budget constraints, so its not like customizing would ruin the designer's vision or whatever.

@  Bass X0 : (16 May 2021 - 03:38 AM)

Isn't customising a toy just "fixing other people's art"?

I'm so sick and tired of making a billion topics about how stupid the GOP is so I've decided to bite the bullet and make one super topic.  Please keep this to GOP stupidity only as while the Dem's are also as stupid, they keep that jive away from cameras

 

In today's stupidity, Michele Bachmann has decided that Obama will be responsible for the upcoming Rapture

 

 

 

Michele Bachmann says the rapture is coming, thanks to President Barack Obama’s policies on Iran’s nuclear program and marriage equality.

In a radio interview last week, Bachmann, the former Minnesota Republican congresswoman, told "End Times" host Jan Markell, “We need to realize how close this clock is getting to the midnight hour.”

“We in our lifetimes potentially could see Jesus Christ returning to earth and the rapture of the church,” Bachmann said. “We see the destruction, but this was a destruction that was foretold.”

 

Bachmann cited the Obama administration’s nuclear negotiations with Iran as a cause. The U.S. and five partner nations are discussing a deal with Iran that would prevent the country from developing or obtaining nuclear weapons.

“We are literally watching, month by month, the speed move up to a level we’ve never seen before with these events," Bachmann said. "Barack Obama is intent. It is his number one goal to ensure that Iran has a nuclear weapon.”

Later in the interview, Bachmann again tied her rapture prediction to Obama’s foreign policy.

“If you look at the president’s rhetoric, and if you look at his actions, everything he has done has been to cut the legs out of Israel and lift up the agenda of radical Islam,” she said.

Obama has said repeatedly that the goal of the nuclear talks with Iran is to prevent the country from developing a nuclear weapon.

Bachmann also blamed abortion and gay marriage, arguing that God is punishing the United States for “embracing a pagan view.”

“Any nation that accepts God and his principles is blessed, and those who push away are cursed. That’s what we’re seeing happen to the United States,” she said. “We will suffer the consequences as a result.”

Some Christians believe those who are saved will be transported to heaven just before armageddon, which they call the rapture.

This is not the first time Bachmann has predicted extreme consequences from the Iran deal. Earlier this month, she claimed the deal would lead to "World War III." And in a Facebook post, she compared Obama to Andreas Lubitz, the pilot who crashed the Germanwings airliner into the French Alps in March.

 

And here I thought that when she compared Obama to Andreas Lubitz she couldn't get any lower.  Guess I was wrong.

 

Ironbite-so wrong.

If I were making a topic about this, I know the perfect title.

 

WHY DO WE EVEN HAVE A JUDICIAL BRANCH!?

 

A Republican lawmaker is trying to keep federal courts from hearing same-sex marriage cases.

 

Less than a week before the Supreme Court plans to hear arguments in potentially one of the nation’s most influential cases on gay marriage, Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) introduced the Restrain the Judges on Marriage Act of 2015 to preserve state bans.

 

“For too long, federal courts have overstepped their constitutionally limited duty to interpret the Constitution.” King said in a news release. “Rather, federal courts have perverted the Constitution to make law and create constitutional rights to things such as privacy, birth control, and abortion. These Unenumerated, so-called constitutionally-protected rights were not envisioned by our Founding Fathers.”

 

King’s bill strips way Article III of the Constitution, which gives federal courts the jurisdiction to hear or decide any question pertaining to the interpretation of, or the validity under the Constitution of, any type of marriage. The bill also prohibits federal funds from being used for any litigation in, or enforcement of any order or judgment by, any federal court.

 

King said his bill would stop the courts from “destroying traditional marriage.”

 

This isn't a bill...this an amendment and should be treated as such.  But I guess the current crop of dumbasses haven't even heard of the amendment process and will just put forth any old law they can because they think it'll pass both Constitutional muster and the President's desk.

 

Look we get it.  Someone paid you a hell of a lot of money to put this bill into circulation.  We get it.  But you've lost on this issue.  Move on to the next.

 

Ironbite-you know transgender rights which you'll lose on as well.

Really? I'm pretty sure the Founding Fathers were aware of (and big on) the concept of privacy.

 

They did write the Fourth Amendment to the Bill of Rights after all.

The right wing Biblical Sharia Law demographic is like 99% coward. And since a lot of them believe some stupid shit about rapture that isn't even in their book the last thing they really want is for it to happen now. Oh sure, they'll say that they're so sure it's right around the corner but truly they hope to be either dead or too old to care if it happens. These are not holy warriors ready to battle demons. They'd probably be too scared to even high five said warriors at the big We Killed Satan afterparty.

 

What they really want though is to continue to live in unearned comfort taken from the downtrodden until they're dead and gone and to leave that whole end of the world shit to their descendents.

Yeah, I knew the last part was, but wasn't sure about the first, so I was confuzzled as well.

 

 

 

“For too long, federal courts have overstepped their constitutionally limited duty to interpret the Constitution.” King said in a news release. “Rather, federal courts have perverted the Constitution to make law and create constitutional rights to things such as privacy, birth control, and abortion. These Unenumerated, so-called constitutionally-protected rights were not envisioned by our Founding Fathers.”

 

Really? I'm pretty sure the Founding Fathers were aware of (and big on) the concept of privacy.

 

They did write the Fourth Amendment to the Bill of Rights after all.

There's some bizarre little aside in a footnote somewhere where someone from the period asked a philosophical question about whether it would be the government's right to slip into someone's study bureau drawer and read a piece of paper if it could be done, magically, without entering the home. The argument was that this would, indeed, be an invasion. Does anyone remember that, and where it might have came from? I mean, it's literally true that the founding fathers were concerned about privacy in the modern sense, and there's documentary evidence of the fact, but I don't remember where I ran into that and it might be useful to drag out in these kinds of situations in the future.


Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?
