Cause your friends don't dance, and if they don't dance they ain't no friends of mine

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2021 - 08:52 AM)

You could leave your friends behind.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 January 2021 - 09:43 PM)

You could if you really wanted to.

......... all wounds heal through God. *walks off*

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2021 - 01:01 PM)

Let me know when the WEAPONs wake up.

@  tigerhawk : (18 January 2021 - 05:18 AM)

Or is the wound the Earth healing.

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Healing is just destroying the wound

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 06:08 PM)

But eventually destroys everything.

@  tigerhawk : (17 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Heals many wounds

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 02:03 PM)

Time.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2021 - 07:53 AM)

I dunno, maybe. I'm not clairvoyant either...

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2021 - 04:30 AM)

Covid?

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 09:50 PM)

At this point, if I'm going to die then it won't be the wait what killed me. It didn't help any, mind you, but it's not what got me.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 January 2021 - 09:37 PM)

Technically we are all literally dying to play with our next figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 05:36 PM)

I am figuratively dying to play with that cheetor.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 04:39 PM)

Still waiting for my box from BBTS to arrive.

@  tigerhawk : (16 January 2021 - 04:29 PM)

Kingdoms is fantabulous and it's only the first wave.

@  tigerhawk : (12 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

My Super Collection Megatron always had two left legs and I just discovered my Thrilling 30 Crosscut has two right hips.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:56 PM)

Fortunately, it's only Netflix Hound, so not really much of a loss here.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:55 PM)

So it's been a while since I've had a misassembled Transformers toy.

@  Echowarrior : (11 January 2021 - 10:02 AM)

More Micromasters would be welcome.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 January 2021 - 06:15 AM)

Instructions unclear, have more sports cars.

@  tigerhawk : (11 January 2021 - 01:57 AM)

Or they could make the other Micromasters of the teams they half assed.

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 January 2021 - 11:20 PM)

There should be a box set of eight Stakeouts.

@  Bass X0 : (10 January 2021 - 08:27 PM)

There should be a box-set of Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet. But I'm not expecting it.

@  Nevermore : (10 January 2021 - 07:51 PM)

I hope there are re-releases this year!

@  tigerhawk : (10 January 2021 - 03:59 PM)

I hope there's rereleases of Earthrise Ramjet, Dirge and Ratchet next year.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

Oh no, he was loved. I'd argue he could have had a better life physically, but he was loved. Deeply.

@  Telly : (08 January 2021 - 01:42 AM)

as long s/he gave love and was loved, it was a good life

@  Echowarrior : (07 January 2021 - 11:10 PM)

Poor puppy. Poor kid.

@  CORVUS : (07 January 2021 - 03:04 PM)

My condolences :(

@  wonko the sane? : (07 January 2021 - 10:45 AM)

So: My sisters dog just had a heart attack and died... while her 12 year old son was walking him. Welcome to 2021 everybody!

@  Dekafox : (04 January 2021 - 07:24 PM)

Except they're Deceptican'ts usually.

@  Devcon : (04 January 2021 - 05:17 PM)

Depending on which dub: Either Decepticons or Decepticans.

@  Bass X0 : (04 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Deception is the French word for disappointment. What does that make the Decepticons in France?

@  Echowarrior : (03 January 2021 - 11:29 PM)

We're just tiny little specks, about the size of Mickey Rooney.

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 January 2021 - 04:33 PM)

It's a great big universe, and we're all really puny.

@  Rycochet : (03 January 2021 - 01:30 PM)

That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned, a sun that is the source of all our power

@  Rycochet : (03 January 2021 - 01:30 PM)

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving and revolving at nine hundred miles an hour.

@  TM2-Megatron : (02 January 2021 - 11:57 PM)

relative to the speed that it's swirling around the centre of the galaxy, its rotation is fairly slow

@  PlutoniumBoss : (02 January 2021 - 09:31 PM)

I'd like to make myself believe that planet Earth turns slowly.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 January 2021 - 07:21 PM)

The Earth moving gave us 2021.

@  ▲ndrusi : (02 January 2021 - 10:50 AM)

It does that.

@  tigerhawk : (02 January 2021 - 10:11 AM)

I think the Earth is moving.

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:35 AM)

Sunday evenings are awesome. Looking at the clock at 8 PM and thinking "I still have plenty of time before going to bed..."

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:33 AM)

Now I've been working permanent late shift for almost three years. Don't regret it one bit. One of the rare cases where the needs of the company overlap with my own preferences.

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:32 AM)

Before the permanent late shift was introduced three years ago (which I volunteered for as soon as the form became available), I always tended to plan my vacation for early shift weeks. Since the majority of the people in most departments prefer to work early shift and thus tended to plan their vacation for late shift weeks, there were usually enough slots available for me to get my request fulfilled.

@  TM2-Megatron : (01 January 2021 - 05:26 PM)

I was promoted last December, so this past year is my first with the company where I've been able to get whatever vacation I wanted. Instead of competing with 100 other people, there's now only 1 (out of 3 others who share my job) that's been in the building longer than me, and so has first dibs at weeks. It's pretty easy to work it out between ourselves before we give in our requests, though

Apparently Frank Angones has confirmed the series' ending, and that they were prepared for it, so here's hoping to a satisfying conclusion (More Gravity Falls, and less Star Vs. TYVM).


Did a lot of people not like Star VS's ending?

Depends where you look. The biggest complaint tends to be that Star basically committed genocide of all the magical creatures.

Doesn't help that this season did things like the ep where Glossaryck takes Meteora back in time purely to intentionally start the feud with Toffee.

I've heard claims deputy writers were increasingly wrestling control as the show went on but that's from dubious sources.

I binged the series somewhat recently, it did feel rather rushed. I had difficulty with Moon's role in the last battle and the hand waiving of "oh, we swore allegiance to a dead queen so you can't control us" just to force Star to stop magic. Not to mention the merging of worlds and all the chaos that would ensue but hey she gets her guy so it's all good, right?

I feel like the ending to Star Vs. was the ending we would have ALWAYS gotten...but I think they thought they might be able to get ONE more season to get there, but couldn't, so had to wrap it up quicker than they had half-planned.  (The whole, "destroy all magic" thing comes out of nowhere and feels a little out of character.  And I would have liked more clarification on Glossaryck's...whole deal and what exactly the dark magic really was.)

 

Really, it's only the last episode or so that feels rushed.  The rest is okay.  

 

As for Ducktales ending...I'm surprised, but not shocked, I guess.  The story basically ended after they rescued Della.  There's definitely more they COULD do (points at the giant empty hole where the nephew's father should be...and Webby's parents/Beakley's lies), but the larger story they've been telling is more or less over at this point.

 

It seems like it's pretty popular, though.  Kind of weird to end it at this point.  Only about 6 more episodes left to this season, too (probably).

Very surprised to hear this.

 

Ditto. I really enjoyed the first two seasons, and look forward to watching season 3 on Disney+ one of these years.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

IMO, its finale is good in a vacuum, but the problem is that when you also take into account everything that lead up to it, it felt extremely rushed, and left a lot of questions. 

 

Especially with where it results in Star

On Star VS, yeah, weird that Heckapoo was fine with dying. I hated that we got teased with Toffee in the time travel ep but he didn't get the chance to come back, darn! Still though, Star Vs is AMAZING.

Anyhow, 6 eps is NOT enough to give Huey his due! More Huey! But not the Duke of Making a Mess. Man, I do NOT want FOWL to be taken down by violence. Brains vs brains, c'mon. Though, urgh, Louie should admittedly be able to see an angle to trick Bradford. But I want Huey to get this win.

So who else in the giant season 3 poster isn't shown yet? Wuzzles and Tailspin, right? No more time to shove in a Gargoyles cameo?

On the Christmas ep, is Violet's family rich too? You'd think Scrooge would be able to accommodate Lena over Violet. Unless Lena switches households every other week?

Very happy that Boyd is still living with the Doofus family. Still tragic that he'll be treated as a kid but he'll never grow up.


Think Lena is supposed to have been adopted by Violet's dads, per Frank Angones and a scene that got cut for time.
