after 38 years and i dont know how many viewings, today is the first time i noticed indiana jones doesnt use a revolver in the bar fight in raiders...

@  Kalidor : (18 July 2019 - 05:33 PM)

@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

@  Locoman : (18 July 2019 - 05:11 PM)

isn't that just Modern Family

@  Foffy : (18 July 2019 - 04:45 PM)

that's right. my gym teacher is a clown. new series coming to disney channel next fall

@  Foffy : (18 July 2019 - 04:44 PM)

all these clowns are making me run really fast.

@  TriBlurr : (16 July 2019 - 05:26 PM)

We have a cornfield? Can I get a few ears?

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 10:25 AM)

You can make a new one. I doubt anybody would stop you.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 10:16 AM)

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:39 AM)

Scratch that; that's insulting to honest salads. Whatever that was was the text equivalent of hamburger.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:38 AM)

Would you like some dressing to go with your word salad?

@  Paladin : (16 July 2019 - 09:34 AM)

yes; it now goes "shit piss hug *BLEEP* ^$@^ motherhuger **** turd fart encyclopedia & Socialism."

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:24 AM)

This is an American site, but isn't that unnecessarily severe language? IIRC it's one of the top four offensive pejoratives to English people

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2019 - 08:52 AM)

It's amusing how so many (U.S.) wankers in this world love to whine "capitalism good socialism bad!" in the abstract while simultaneously pretending that megacorporations dominating de facto monopolies is anathema to the core capitalistic principle of competition benefits everyone.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 05:17 AM)

I know Shockwave's super mode is pretty lame and Magnus is kinda greebly but it's not that bad.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:38 AM)

Though with the luck and caliber of leaders we've had of late in the darkest timeline, maybe it's too much to hope for.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:36 AM)

Just like democracy, it's not perfect but better than the present alternatives. Capitalism as it's practiced today won't be able to weather the coming wave of automation, though. Best to plan for it and hope for a gentle transition rather than the aforementioned collapse

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 12:27 AM)

Capitalism is the worst amiright? Sent from my iPhone

@  Vexwing : (15 July 2019 - 11:24 PM)

Because the collapse is gonna be just great.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2019 - 10:41 PM)

Let's hope this is late stage and we're on the cusp of something better.

@  abates : (15 July 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Late stage capitalism is the absolute best.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 01:33 PM)

How old is Arcee, anyway?

 

I mean, I feel like she was sometime before the Ark-1 launched off and Monstructor's creation.

The wiki says that the whole... business with the gender-swapping was six million years ago, which would make her about Tailgate's age, I suppose?

Eh, Arcee's still in a weird place since they haven't really revisited her origin since Furman left, but retconned away her Autobot symbols from Spotlight #12 and claimed she never joined until RID #18.

Well, Arcee was a spark only for a while. It's not stated how long, but I'd figure a good while.

 

Also Kup and Alpha Trion apparently never/rarely upgrade themselves according to Spotlight: Kup.

Wasn't Trion's thing that he updates himself all the time?  Or at least that's what Costa was going for between Ironhide and the Future issue?

Galvatron sort of indicated a little while back that her gender was something that was restored to her, not grafted-on.

I thought he meant Jhiaxus was "restoring" that to the Cybertronian race, not to Arcee.

Because all three pages are set in the ocean. 1 and 2 are underwater, 3 is on the surface.

Wow, that makes her and the Monstructor Six older than Rewind and most of the Lost Light crew. I had never thought of it that way before.

Edited and worked into his artwork... : /
I had a feeling it was that, but putting ocean in quotes confused me, since like it very much still reads as an ocean

Listen everyone, I get the Livio hate, believe me! (omg does he destroy good storytelling!) But using a real photo in a transformative way in comics and art in general is in no way new, uniquely Livio, or "lazy". I mean it might not be to everyone's liking, but like this just feels like picking on him unnecessarily... I actually thought it was pretty good looking here~

All that said plz IDW, much less Livio. Not Livio on every huge months long event. Plz.

I've mentioned this before, but my feeling is that IDW turns to Livio because he does all his own stunts (IE, they pay only him and not a colorist, etc.) and based on what I hear about his personality, he's nice and probably gets his work in on time. So given that economic reality, I doubt Livio is going anywhere - we can just hope that his art continues to improve. :)

 

(EDIT: And also, having re-read Megatron Origin recently, artists very much can improve)

I honestly kinda wish we got to see more of Livio's pencils colored by someone else.

 

His commissioned stuff at cons is pretty fantastic.
