Don't frustrate yourself OR her for it. Just keep the camera ready and if it happens, it happens.

@  Ashley : (23 October 2019 - 12:15 AM)

I'll probably try waving treats in front of her and whistling it, see if I can encourage it

@  Ashley : (23 October 2019 - 12:14 AM)

I'll try. She's not the most obedient bird, so it's going to take some work to get her to do it on demand.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 October 2019 - 10:03 PM)

In fact; we demand video.

@  MEDdMI : (22 October 2019 - 09:26 PM)

Now you have to get it on video

@  Ashley : (22 October 2019 - 08:11 PM)

I'm so proud

@  Ashley : (22 October 2019 - 08:11 PM)

My parrot just whistled the Transformers theme music

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Yeah, I think both are too old and too expensive at this stage. Hasbro/Paramount are going to try for younger actors that can do multiple films AND can be locked into a multifilm contract cheaply

@  Paladin : (22 October 2019 - 06:05 PM)

so he'd probably be sixty by the time they get to another GI Joe project.

@  Patch : (22 October 2019 - 06:04 PM)

According to Wikipedia he's 51.

@  Paladin : (22 October 2019 - 05:38 PM)

isn't Crews like sixty now???

@  wonko the sane? : (22 October 2019 - 02:11 PM)

... I could get behind that.

@  RichardT1977 : (22 October 2019 - 12:33 PM)

Who thinks that, in the event of a GI Joe cinematic reboot, John Cena and Terry Crews would be perfect for Duke and Roadblock, respectively?

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:59 PM)

I've barely used them over the years, so I'm sure they won't miss me, but I'm done too. Thankfully Pulse put up the Seacons today.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:58 PM)

i didnt complete it, which is why this is confusing and pi$$ing me off. theres no record of it in my order history. i emailed them about it, so we will see what happens. either way, i think im done using them after this

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:55 PM)

Either we're both unlucky or they're trying to force payment now for these takaratomy mall exclusives.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:55 PM)

I asked them to kindly undo that and I got a sternly worded email about how I should use their website right.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:55 PM)

Yeah, if you completed the order, they charged you the money now. Mine said stack before I finished checking out. I only noticed I was charged because of Paypal.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:53 PM)

i wasnt even wanting to pay now. i was going to add them to my stack but i didnt get the chance after i was done setting up paypal

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:53 PM)

If you haven't officially placed the order, I don't think so? Although, I had to request a cancellation with them last week because their system changed details about my order after I placed it, so I don't exactly trust them.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:51 PM)

so im not actually being charged then?

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:48 PM)

So, if you were one click away from purchasing, then they probably did the pre-authorization already. The next click will charge you the money now.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:47 PM)

TFsource charges upfront for regular pre-orders.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:45 PM)

i was considering buying the upcoming seacons from tfsource. i had them in my cart and was on the checkout page. i set up a credit card through paypal, and before i even hit the "place order" button, i got a text saying that a charge or hold was placed on my card! is this normal? is it just checking to see if i have the money? why did it do it before i even placed the order??

So whenever he addresses his troops, he keeps cracking jokes. Sometimes these jokes are about the blunders he himself had made in his speech the previous day.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 01:01 PM)

At the moment, I'm blessed with a pretty nice superior. He's got a military background, but he takes an oddly entertaining approach to it. Imagine a stand-up comedian who accidentally enlisted as a drill sergeant.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:54 PM)

Another type of everyday absurdity: Imagine you're leaving your workplace for your lunchbreak. Upon your return, you discover that your workplace has been cordened and/or gated off during your break, with "construction site" warning signs everywhere. You go to your superior and tell him: "I can no longer access my workplace! Why is there suddenly a construction site?" Your superior takes a surpised look and says: "I don't know, first time I see this." You figure: "Must be a Tuesday, then."

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:51 PM)

It's kind of surreal, really.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:50 PM)

They agree that things are less than ideal, but they acknowledge that their scope of making decisions is limited. Oddly, I keep getting that regardless of how high up the chain of command I bother people.

"I hear you, but you know how it is, there's nothing I can do about it." That's it, basically.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 October 2019 - 06:40 AM)

What's it like to have management that's willing to listen to things they don't want to hear? I've never seen that.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:41 AM)

I manage to argue within the company's own internal logic and point out the flaws, shortcomings and discrepancies between "official company policy" and "everyday company reality".

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:40 AM)

Many of my coworkers are scared to even talk to managers. I often discuss company matters with them I disagree with, and it isn't a rare occurrence that they say "yeah, you're right..."

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:38 AM)

I know how to watch my tone, and I prefer to keep things straightforward and factual, never to attack the person, always the problem itself.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:37 AM)

The good thing for me is ever since a minor hiccup many years ago when I was still non-permanent, I've always managed to along just fine with my various superiors (I've been through over a dozen already). And that's despite my outspokenness, my blunt honesty and my oftentimes harsh criticism.

Amazon in the US has pretty good benefits, though, and even the temp workers had forty hours a week to start with. Even with minimum wage, that's pretty good pay.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2019 - 01:20 AM)

Oh, the turnover rates are high here as well.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Amazon.com and .ca, on the other hand, can be pretty terrible. I know from your squawkbox posts that you guys have your issues with Amazon over there, although you're lucky to have stronger government regulations and a union there. I gather the warehouse workers in the USA and Canada have it pretty crappy, with very high turnover, close to minimum wage pay, and no unions

I dunno.  I kinda hate the idea of live action remakes, but I will say that Lion King and Aladdin might be the only two I'd be willing to see.

 

Although... Aladdin without Robin Williams?  Is that... like... can they even do that?

Well I was thinking of Aladdin the movie, in specific.

 

But, I guess.  Never saw the cartoon, though people say it was good.  But, you know, they only didn't have him for Return of Jafar because he refused to do it, not because they didn't want him.  As soon as he agreed for the third film, he was right back in.  The man was unquestionably unique and trying to replace him in a film that featured him so heavily is going to be a difficult task.

Not so sure about a super realistic CG Lion King movie. I loved the Broadway musical, with the masks and puppetry representing the animals, that was really cool.

The reason he refused, is becuase the higher ups as Disney at the time broke contract, and made a massive deal about Genie; which royally pissed Robin off. He only came back for the third, after change in management went out of their way to make it up to him. But even now there are still limits to what Disney can use of his work.

This doesn't surprise me, but it does kinda irritate me.

I loved the originals. I even remember watching Lion King for the very first time in the theatre. Total darkness as you begin to hear animals stirring and then bam! Circle of Life starts out and...that whole thing was amazing. And the stampede scene. You have not seen the stampede scene unless you've seen it in the theatre.

So believe me, I have nothing but love for these movies.

Which is why I wish they would leave well enough alone? Why do they feel like they have to do live action versions of all of their cartoon movies? The originals were fine as they were. Better than fine. They're classics! They don't need improved upon!

Has Disney really just lost all sense of imagination and now all they can do are live action remakes of cartoon movies they've already made? It's hugging lazy as hell!

Both of those were "Fake Robin Williams" though.

 

This is going to be something completely different.

 

But even now there are still limits to what Disney can use of his work.

 

I forget exactly where I read/heard this but I think they can't use anything until 20 years after his death.

It really is like a repeat of that age of direct-to-video sequels. Except it's not even new stories and everyone seems to be eating it up.

 

 

 

I once joked on another site about how Disney was gonna do live-action remakes of all these dumb forgotten films, and sure enough someone responds with links announcing just about my entire list.

It may be lazy but it's banking high on nostalgia and love for the originals like all have done so far and while most have been skippable, some have actually made the jump to live action well. I'll admit the Jungle Book was one of their better adaptions so far, and that prompted the jump to Lion King here with it's success

 

But I'll admit I wish Disney could at least lay off the animated classics already. They look impressive but most times nostalgia of the original will overrule the new one. Or Emma Watson just can't sing.

 

Anyone else miss the days when Disney would pump out random kids movies with no real cgi with fun concepts and a little less care for being PC. I kinda want to watch Heavyweights, Blank Check, or something really old school like "The Island at the Top of the World"

 

"Oomiak fight like Bear!"

That trailer is pretty spectacular. I wasn't super keen for this but I guess now I am.

I'm not terribly distressed about the absence of Be Prepared. TLK is one of Disney's great animated features, but it's not one of Disney's great soundtracks.
