Best of luck man.

GOOD LUCK, NEVERMORE!

@  Nevermore : (05 May 2021 - 03:14 PM)

The election committee whose chairman I am has been preparing this election since February. There's no real gain for me either way, so I don't care that much for the outcome, but it's going to be a stressful day for me either way.

@  Nevermore : (05 May 2021 - 03:13 PM)

Wish me luck. Tomorrow is this year's supervisory board election at my workplace, and I'm the guy in charge of organizing the election.

I have two Overlords one was faulty with a melted foot and they never took it back but replaced it, I just checked the guns, both the handles seem to be turning white.

pansy. my trypticon AND scorponok took a header from 4 feet up and only had parts pop off that were easily reattached. guess 'cons are tougher...

My TR Perceptor fell and the titan master peg in the leg snapped off. Fortunately I have the Legends one.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 May 2021 - 08:50 PM)

It's a fairly well known fact that "it's a wonderful life" only became popular after it dropped into the public domain. So, yeah, they probably did.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (02 May 2021 - 08:29 PM)

I read an interesting observation on Twitter. If it is the natural course of a human to grow into Grandpa Abe yelling at a cloud, but nostalgia also yields rose-tinted glasses for the likes of one's youth, then did Greatest Generation adults bemoan how Baby Boomer children loved box office flops such as The Wizard of Oz and It's a Wonderful Life?

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 May 2021 - 09:54 AM)

You’re traveling down a rabbit hole I dare not follow

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:26 AM)

At the same time, with my almost non-existent knowledge of Japanese and how oddly some things translate, seeing "Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges" made me wonder if that would make it "JoJoJo"... which now has my brain terrified of a weird Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo/Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Crossover. @[email protected]

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:24 AM)

It is always weird when things align.  This talk of Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges in the SquawkBox reminded me of King Gorgeous Gorge on the FoxBox.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 May 2021 - 08:52 PM)

Nice

@  Nevermore : (01 May 2021 - 09:03 AM)

I got one even better: After that character by the name of Gorgeous Giorgios dies in a gorge, they name that whole area after him: The Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges.

@  tigerhawk : (30 April 2021 - 01:56 AM)

Paint apps did slide notably during TR, wave one's Titan Masters had detail but wave 2 onwards was absent of them. Wave 5's Ramhorn, Dreadnaut, Scorchfire and Aimless had detail but Murk and Hazard didn't, can't speak for Flameout as I got Legends Twintwist and Slugslinger.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 April 2021 - 04:12 PM)

Other than a few overly tight joints, the paints apps are my single complaint about the generations line.

@  tigerhawk : (29 April 2021 - 02:25 PM)

I just saw Legends Leo Prime now I wish Titans Return Alpha Trion had a few more paint apps for ship mode.

CORVUS: considering that reply, I'm pretty sure this was just another instance of Bass posting poorly-defined drivel as if it were profound.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 April 2021 - 04:24 PM)

@  CORVUS : (26 April 2021 - 07:30 PM)

I'd like to know what society he's talking about, and what qualifies as "nothing", TBH.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 April 2021 - 05:09 PM)

I don't see the point in such a poorly defined "everyone is terrible" statement. He's not complaining about any specific people or specific problems.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 April 2021 - 05:06 PM)

I do not see anything about Bass's comment that felt a need for you to attack him.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 April 2021 - 04:35 PM)

Bass: does that "everyone" include yourself or are you just trying to act like you're better than everybody without actually proving anything?

@  wonko the sane? : (26 April 2021 - 04:10 PM)

Mostly it's "oh, don't say that right now" and "better learn when to duck".

@  Bass X0 : (26 April 2021 - 04:05 PM)

There's something to be said about society when everyones just an inch away from snapping over nothing.

@  tigerhawk : (23 April 2021 - 04:59 AM)

Saint Georges Day.

@  Sabrblade : (21 April 2021 - 11:55 PM)

Glenn Morshower would agree. He goes to auditions with his shoes full of syrup.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 April 2021 - 04:28 PM)

Please, maple syrup can only improve alot of content.

@  Donocropolis : (21 April 2021 - 03:33 PM)

Well, not release it into Canada, no. You'd just get maple syrup all over it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 April 2021 - 03:21 PM)

what bothers me most about Canadian rights is that, oftentimes, the rights holders for certain content don't even seem to have any interest in releasing it

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 April 2021 - 10:46 AM)

It'd be mostly the same even in a world with global copyright law, since even the shortest terms are very long.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 April 2021 - 10:39 AM)

You got me, I just want to watch cartoons without having to pirate them for once.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 April 2021 - 08:41 AM)

Also, how would copyright law standardization be enforced? I doubt any country's governments would be eager to start trade sanctions over it.

Yup.

inspired by.. as opposed to actual representation. as long as they look the part, I don't think they need to be from any particular cultural background to play any particular made up imaginary cultural background.

Black representation is going to be included. Somewhere.

It's going to rock if they actually do a teen Aang story. The comic already have the immediate adventures after the TV show but Aang, Katara, Sokka and Toph as young adults, with new set of threats, would be nice. Aang died at... 31, right?

I can't remember what was said about it in Korra, but, I'm not entirely sure what else can be done with these characters in the time frame given between events we know about. It's not like most of these characters didn't basically already all grew up and have established the relationships that they stick with ... except for Toph of course XD

 

now were we to get a show about Zuko being a dad... that would be interesting

Well, it would kinda be boring to meet and marry the first person you like. Maybe Aang meets a new person or Katara, the same. I mean, we still don't know if Jet died or not (hahaha).

The comics actually show Mei breaking up with Zuko. I don't know if they got back together too.

Aang and Katara have 3 kids, I'm not really interested in watching a show about the breakup and then eventual regetbacktogetherof of two characters that don't need to have that happen. It's entirely forced drama and there's no stakes involved because we already know the outcome.

 

as for Zuko, he's got what's her name, the earth kingdom woman waiting for him and he's the firelord ... he's going to do fine. 

 

Now Sokka, there's a guy who's lovelife might be interesting. though I'm sure him and Suki work it out. eventually ... maybe. if he doesn't screw it up

There's also those side story comics that can be worked into the main cartoon storyline, about half of which were just comedy bits but the other half were actual extensions/continuations/in-between-events for episodes that either explained elaborated on a few things that the show didn't (the events set between Books 2 and 3, in particular).

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.

Went to a Halloween corporate event and one section set up a whole Avatar the Last Airbender theme. Very cool but before that, I met the littlest Avatar I've seen, hehe.



Didn't realize Aang would be so gleefully violent though, haha. Is.

Time for this thread to be reincarnated!

ATLA hit Netflix in late May and has been in their top 10 most-watched shows ever since; about 2 days ago they just revamped it into HD for the first time ever. There are a huuuge amount of thinkpieces about the show's regained popularity in all the usual clicky media outlets, here's just one at random:

https://www.vulture....summer-hit.html

I binge-watched the whole series in about 2 weeks with my 8-year-old daughter.

It was amazing. The best animated series I've ever seen. 14 years later I remembered the major plot points, but I didn't remember the dialogue or practically any of the stand-alone episodes, or all the clues to the White Lotus Society. I also didn't remember just how much Aang was crushing on Katara throughout the whole series, much less how provocative they made the dance scene in "The Headband." And now I noticed all the repeating characters in the background, and could tell the members of Jet's gang apart! My daughter thought all the meta jokes in "The Ember Island Players" was the funniest thing she'd ever seen; she's watched that one about seven times now.

We're now watching LOK on CBS All Access, and again I haven't given that series any thought since it ended. We're up to episode 5 and while it's a worthy sequel with great world building and scripts and production values, it does suffer due to a lack of cute kids, a more mundane and repetitive setting, and how hugging horrible every second of the pro bending matches are. I'm definitely in it for the long run because I remember finding it good, but, urgghh, what a disconnect in setting and content.

Aw, I rather liked the pro bending parts. I thought they were fun. Quite creative, especially with that horrible guy, haha.

There WILL be kids later on! Wait for it! Also, say your favorite new character is, hehe.

Btw, I think I need to watch The Headband again. I didn't think it was that provocative before.

Also, Netflix doesn't have the chibi eps? School time shipping?

No chibi eps, but those are on YouTube. My daughter so wanted a "normal" sequel to ATLA, with the same characters, that I preordered the TPB of "The Promise", which is coming out 6/30 btw.
