Unlike many of his peers, Morton diesn't seem to have gone out of his way to try and take every drug going so he's aged remarkably well.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:39 AM)

Doesn't seem to have been a market for it, which is too bad, because it perfectly does what it sets out to do.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Just opened it and suddenly I'm 9 years old again.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Bought myself Fansproject Glacialord for my birthday during their Black Friday sale.

@  Nevermore : (12 December 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 December 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Depends entirely on how badly you cooked them. What?

Cheddar can do just about anything.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2019 - 03:48 AM)

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

The use of Goddamn is the most surprising. That's TV-MA or higher, along with any other religion-based exclamations. (See: Venture Bros.' "The Incredible Mr. Brisby" in which Dr. Venture's exclamation of shock was changed from 'Jesus Christ Superstar!' to 'Ladysmith Black Mambazo!')


Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

That's specifically a weird quirk of Adult Swim, though. (See: they also muted the third word in "Holy Zombie Jesus" in an episode of Futurama, which had been fine on Fox with the same rating.) Not a standard that applies across all media.

Do you think you could release the raws for this one? The process of scrubbing the subtitles for BWII was fairly time consuming for me, and someone may want to abridge Neo in the future.

They're soft-subtitling it (using subtitle tracks you can turn on and off), so you'll get raws.

Well, whatever decision you come to, I can't wait to watch this show.

 

I also dread it too, because, like after watching your BW2 subs, I'm sure I'll want to collect all the core main characters from this show too!

We did find it quite humorous that after we released BWII that several folks were tweeting us saying it was our fault they were picking up characters like Starscream and BB.   :D

"Butthole" ruins the immersion for me because it immediately makes me read any character as Beavis and/or Butthead.

 

Beavis and Butthead are teenagers.


 

 

Neo has a bunch of basically a group of teens who are out of military school who don't work well together and cuss each other out whenever they don't agree with something.

 

 

So it makes sense on that basis?

We wanted to throw this question out to the fans on the language content. 

 

Beast Wars Neo surprisingly uses a lot of really harsh words which at times can be translated as swearing.  How do you guys feel about this?  Our thoughts have always been that for a Transformers series, we want to make it as accessible as possible to younger kids and adults alike. 

 

We want parents out there to not have to worry about this kind of stuff if their kids are watching. But with Neo, it's actually quite difficult - due to Cohrada and Break mainly.

 

We'd love to hear your thoughts on this.

 

Please no swearing. I really only watch cartoons with my kid. And I think it really pulls me out of the viewing experience. It certainly does in the live action movies.

It would be much easier in a pdf or text file that's separate from the video.

 

 

I always find incongruous swearing in fansubs of kids' anime distracting and immersion-breaking, definitely put me down as an 'against'. Like Chris was saying, it surely can't be as harsh in the original Japanese-language context, because it was made for children...?

 
It is actually.  There's a big difference with the dialogue from the characters in Neo vs II.
 
Neo has a bunch of basically a group of teens who are out of military school who don't work well together and cuss each other out whenever they don't agree with something. 
 
It's not like every second line had swearing but they definitely don't hold back in this show.

 


Can you be more specific? Like, I'm pretty sure the Japanese exclamation usually translated as "bastard" doesn't literally mean "your parents weren't married".

 

 

Okay, so there's basically one scene in episode 10 where the Cybertrons are walking through the belly of this monster.   Break makes a comment wondering how long this path goes on for.  Then Cohrada pipes up and says "Probably right to this monster's asshole." 

 

It's lines like that where we can't avoid mild language.  Taka-chan and I don't feel it's right to use "rear end" because that doesn't convey the manner of how he said the line which was intended as a rude and sarcastic way.

 

 

Pretty sure "butt hole" is perfectly acceptable there. And funnier, anyway.

 

"I bet straight to the b-hole," would be even better.

"Butthole" ruins the immersion because it's pretty obviously going out of its way to avoid saying "asshole".

 

Some people actually don't cuss as incessantly as TV and movies might make us think. 

 

I mean, idiot kids with limited vocabularies, or just generally dumb people. Like me when I'm not watching myself. It would be GREAT to get more media where the cuss words don't feel so forced and loaded into the script because the writer thinks those words HAVE to be there to appease the moronic masses.
