So, welcome to all retail, everywhere.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Oh, and Greenpeace also conducted a protest at a German Amazon facility, to protest against Amazon's practice of throwing customer returns in the trash.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 01:17 PM)

Right, because with Amazon, it's just the employees that have to step in dog shit while having no space to breathe.[/slightexaggeration]

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 July 2019 - 01:03 PM)

At least I can use Amazon without losing the ability to breath or step in dog shit.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:58 PM)

Considering that Amazon is the new Walmart...

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

All of my best wishes go out to the brave women and men who have the balls (and ovaries) to go on strike at an Amazon facility in the US.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 12:38 PM)

Speaking of. Not only are we in Germany on strike today, but so is the fulfillment center in Shakopee, Minnesota!

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 12:36 PM)

Overnight delivery is the right of all sentient beings.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:34 PM)

(and is it sexist of me to assume that a character named "Amazon Prime" would be feminine?)

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:34 PM)

Whenever she was summoned, she would arrive the next day?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (15 July 2019 - 12:32 PM)

The Scioli and Barber TF vs Joe series mentioned an Amazon Prime.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:22 PM)

Meanwhile I'm wondering why no one's come up with a fan character named "Amazon Prime". I mean, today IS her special day...

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 11:20 AM)

The Wallet-Eater.

@  RichardT1977 : (14 July 2019 - 07:28 PM)

No, but I did *read* it from you...

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 July 2019 - 03:06 PM)

The first real long-term space outposts belong to the Illuminati, but you didn't hear that from me.

@  RichardT1977 : (14 July 2019 - 02:50 PM)

Er, in SF I mean.

@  RichardT1977 : (14 July 2019 - 02:50 PM)

Yeah, the first long-term manned space outposts have traditionally been mining colonies and the like.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 July 2019 - 12:19 PM)

Okay, but......do they have to be willing to be sent up?

@  Rycochet : (14 July 2019 - 11:10 AM)

A king isn't a king without subjects.

@  Rycochet : (14 July 2019 - 11:09 AM)

The rich will never flee to space until there's enough an underclass up there so they have someone to do all the jobs they won't. Same reason seasteading never takes off.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 July 2019 - 10:45 AM)

Do we have to let them come back?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 July 2019 - 10:35 AM)

Well, it's only going to be the ultra-rich who are able to go for the first couple decades at least, so I doubt anyone's going to care much

@  Nevermore : (14 July 2019 - 10:32 AM)

They could be standing on the surface of the moon, insist they're in the middle of a giant set, and take off their helmet to "prove" it.

@  Nevermore : (14 July 2019 - 10:31 AM)

Assuming these are genuinely convinced conspiracy morons and not just internet trolls, I would assume "not a lot".

@  Nevermore : (14 July 2019 - 10:31 AM)

I wonder how all these recent private and international space travel programs are going to affect those craziacs who insist that the Earth is flat/the moon landing was forged/outer space isn't real etc.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 July 2019 - 09:34 AM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 July 2019 - 09:29 AM)

Trebuchets never go out of style.

@  unluckiness : (14 July 2019 - 09:17 AM)

Have you considered a trapdoor spike pit?

@  unluckiness : (14 July 2019 - 09:17 AM)

It's not the worst gift but not evryone may want one given rising fuel prices.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 July 2019 - 08:22 AM)

Is a fire pit too literal for a house warming gift?

@  Noideaforaname : (14 July 2019 - 07:43 AM)

Welp, just realized everyone's been talking about Halle BAILEY this week, not BERRY. (so that's why i haven't been seeing CatFishWoman memes...)

@  MEDdMI : (14 July 2019 - 07:08 AM)

Oh, sounds like fun.I wonder if I have a decent mic lying around.

@  Pinkcolliebot : (13 July 2019 - 07:26 PM)

Casting call for TF Roll Out Shorts! https://www.behindth...y/casting-call/

@  Kalidor : (13 July 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Talking about the show in chat is absolutely fine - posting spoilers on anything that's current season isn't tho

@  Arazyr : (13 July 2019 - 07:05 AM)

Yeah, I'm a season or so behind, so I would definitely appreciate no spoilers. 8^)

@  Sabrblade : (12 July 2019 - 10:21 PM)

Still, though, yeah, we do have a thread for the show. Best to use it.

@  Sabrblade : (12 July 2019 - 10:20 PM)

I think Nevermore once said he was a few episodes behind, so I don't think he's talking about tonight's new episode.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 July 2019 - 09:53 PM)

Yeah, you realize we have a designated thread for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., right?

@  MEDdMI : (12 July 2019 - 09:35 PM)

Not that I care about the show, but I'd be pretty annoyed about spoilers there. Please post it in a thread.

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 06:05 PM)

Okay, this is getting ridiculous. The opening of the episode was a deliberate play with clichés, but unfortunately, the rest of the episode that's played straight is also riddled with them...

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 05:45 PM)

Also, why are they so pissed that Deke built a start-up company? What would they have preferred - him continuing being a freeloader?

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 05:44 PM)

But now everyone keeps picking up the idiot ball. Geez.

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 05:43 PM)

That's what I always loved about the show - creative ways to play with tropes and subvert them by making the characters smarter than your typical fictional character doofus.

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 05:43 PM)

Why is everyone suddenly genre-blind?

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Wasn't it just last season when Mack was so super-genre-savvy that he insisted on NOT SPLITTING UP?

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 05:42 PM)

And again, too many characters acting like idiots.

@  Nevermore : (12 July 2019 - 05:41 PM)

Seriously, Agents of SHIELD? Now you're straight ripping off "Alien"?

Raimi Spider-Man wasn't out yet then, right? So when that covered Spider-Man said he was an actor, he wasn't suppose to be Tobey Maguire but TV show actor Nicholas Hammond?


More than likely, yeah. Peter Parker's design in that series is based on Hammond.

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.

I only found that out myself recently, but then again, the Internet wasn't really in full swing when the series was airing, and I didn't know what Hammond looked like.  It always did bug me that Puny Parker looked like a football player though, one of many odd decisions that went into that series.

Digging this, but... why does Miles have so much hair? He looks like he came out of the pages of Boondocks rather than Ultimate Spider-Man.

 

I mean, nothing against the hair itself... it's just that I don't think I've ever seen Miles sporting that kind of style? It feels weird. Like if Peter Parker had a Hulk Hogan style or something.

I'm watching it next week. We had an event at a mall as an animation block (with Wreck-It Ralph and Pokémon the Power of Us) and had cosplayers. Guess it's the best they could do with Spider-Ham but I'm so happy he's represented.



I also totally bombed at the trivia since I didn't read Miles Morales's Ultimate comics origin. How his mom died, who betrayed him to Hydra... I don't even know how he got his powers. It'll be a surprise to me when I see the movie next week.

I absolutely loved it. I wasn't really prepared for how much it's a Mile Morales movie with some other guys popping up later, but it's just a stunning film on every level. So much fun. Hilarious. Jake Johnson was born to play Peter Parker and everyone else in the cast is superb as well. Lily Tomlin's Aunt May in particular was just like... give HER a movie.

Great post-credits scene, I hope we get the (presumably inevitable) sequel. Ideally about now.

If I had one complaint (and apparently I do) it's the Kingpin. Everyone else looks great, but Fisk... the whole movie is all "ho ho, a cartoon pig" but the most comical thing in the movie by far is the ludicrous Kingpin design. He's a size and shape that just doesn't fit - it's absurd in a bad way. If they'd just dialled it back a bit they could have had the effect they were after without going over the top.

Brilliant nods to many Spider-Man eras, a heap of cute mashings-up of its cinematic identity and its comic book roots. Just so good. Can not wait to see it again, though... have to I guess. T-T

Agreed on all counts, including the one complaint. Though Kingpin's design actually bugged me less than the Jersey wiseguy voice and personality they saddled him with.

 

Still, even with the worst Kingpin, this is still the best Spidey movie overall since Raimi's second one. And the funniest one of all of them.

Saw it. The style is something 90s MTV wanted to be, haha. It's pretty incredible but they had to tone it down in the latter half to focus on the story (but brought it back at the final fight)



I know they changed Miles' comic origin but, really, the film doesn't go into it. What's the 42?

I nearly cried when they showed the age. But I really did cry at the glove.

The movie kinda assumed the viewers are familiar with Spider-Man lore. I didn't hear the Prowler get named or introduced properly. Tombstone too.

Olivia was awesome! Love her!

Would have been nice to have a six vs six fight but they didn't get enough bad guys. But I loved the surprise ones, the ones not shown in the trailers. Hope they make a toy of one of them.

Do they expound on the origin of the spider 42 in the comic origin of Miles? Cuz the movie just glossed over it. The Alchemax lab was far away so there were no genetic whatever experiments in that area.

He might as well have gotten his powers when he first encountered Spider-Man, inferring that the spider came from the portal.

Also, I missed it but Peter did get to say 'great power must come great responsibility', right?
