yeah, I've got a few others that I need to check out/get removed. The nose one is small but annoying since I hit it every time I blow my nose.

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2019 - 08:46 AM)

Try to get a histopath examination if it isn't too expensive over there. It's probably just a mole but I'd think certainty would be better.

@  MEDdMI : (24 June 2019 - 07:59 AM)

@unluckiness I know, plan to get it removed but gotta get an appt first

@  MEDdMI : (23 June 2019 - 10:17 PM)

So who wants to hear about this mole on my nose that I keep scratching open

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 June 2019 - 09:24 PM)

Yeah, it's kind of defeating the purpose of making political discussions more restricted if you're just gonna go at it elsewhere on this site.

@  Telly : (23 June 2019 - 07:06 PM)

that would probly fit better in the p & r thread. its there for things just like this

The citizens resisted by buying up all the town's beer reserves so the Nazis would have to stay sober the entire time.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:28 PM)

Meanwhile, congratulations civil resistance, part 2: So a group of Nazis were holding one of their Good Old Times Reenactment festivals in a small East German town.

It's basically like an anti-Trump candidate winning Texas.

The mayoral elections of Istanbul are considered to be a key indicator for the political climate in the entire country.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:24 PM)

This time, it was a landslide victory for the opposition's candidate.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:23 PM)

After president Erdogan had a court revoke the results of the mayoral election of Istanbul after the opposition party's candidate had won by a small margin, the election was repeated today.

I'm vaguely confused why there is a Nicki Minaj song in my youtube reccomendations, but even more confused as to why that song (which appears to be from an official account) is called "MEGATRON".

Is it weeby of me to refer to the two IDW TF continuities as Heisei and Reiwa? I mean, the switchover almost perfectly lines up with the change of eras...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 June 2019 - 10:35 AM)

I hate when the spicy version of something isn't spicy!

@  Pennpenn : (20 June 2019 - 08:43 AM)

I hate it when the spicy version of something is in almost identical packaging to the non-spicy version. Especially when I don't notice until I've got home.

@  unluckiness : (18 June 2019 - 08:55 AM)

Only if the customer reviews give it all high marks.

@  Patch : (18 June 2019 - 04:42 AM)

Are they going to call it "I-Did-Nawtflix?"

@  unluckiness : (18 June 2019 - 12:48 AM)

I see, so what the world needs is a Tommy Wiseau streaming service.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 11:02 PM)

Well, Conan did start the trend that resulted in a wave of Barbarian films in the mid to late 80s

@  MEDdMI : (17 June 2019 - 10:57 PM)

I keep wanting to read Corman as Conan

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:29 PM)

There needs to be some streaming service that caters to connoisseurs of schlock. Otherwise, a huge part of our cultural history will be wiped away. While many of these films are available on blu-ray, with more coming out each month, it's good they're also available for the streaming crowd.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:18 PM)

Corman did make an impressive number of barbarian films back in the day. If impressive is the word

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:11 PM)

I mean, where else are you going to see the entire Roger Corman barbarian fantasy library (legally) for free?

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:09 PM)

Oh Tubi TV, you are a haven for terrible films. Netflix, Hulu and Crackle all push for mainstream appeal and prestige, you got the guts to have ready access to dregs even the SyFy channel wouldn't air

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

Also you have Bayonetta and a bunch of Fire Emblem people.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

...I mean, Tales character. Probably up to/for it.

Yeah, Dru's the one I look at and go... huh? Also, maybe not a fan of this "Mistress" thing, because it sounds like she's replacing the Master, and I would much prefer the Master to remain in play.

Buffy going to BOOM! was a surprise indeed, since I thought Dark Horse was doing a decent job with the series.

 

I like the designs a lot and can't wait to see what BOOM! does with this series. Plus, they got Firefly too! Now give me an Angel comic. :)

Boom is on fire right now. They've always done good stuff, but I feel like they're levelling up.

 

Dark Horse losing these books is a HUGE shock though. I wonder how fans will take to a reboot after years of This Is Genuine TV Canon, Honest.

Well, there's not a lot to hold onto in the first issue, because it's... the first issue, but I enjoyed it a lot.

Spoiler


Some fun to be had. Bring on next month. There's a lot of appeal in a fresh, unencumbered Buffy universe.

The art is damn fan-frigging-tastic. Dan Mora is an absolute godsend to this book. I think he needs to work harder at evoking Anya, but he's got Buffy, Xander, Willow, and Giles absolutely nailed. Great stuff.

 

The story was somewhat choppy and disjointed, and it also seemed, I dunno, somewhat superficial? As someone online elsewhere said, it feels like its rushing, but not going anywhere important. I think they really need to work on the pacing, and some of the dialogue is a bit off as well. For example, Buffy definitely looks like Buffy, but doesn't quite sound like Buffy as yet. 

 

Still, it shows promise, and I'm a hard one to please when it comes to Buffy and Angel. I'll definitely read the next issue, and give this title at least 5-6 issues or so to find its footing.

Good first issue. Liked the reveal of who was writing the 'thought bubbles'. No Angel surprisingly, although that is okay since they had so many people to reintro. I'd guess its probably because Boom doesn't have the rights (yet). Oh well, I'm sure he'll show up sooner or later since he's such an important part of the universe.

That's what I figure: he'll show eventually, perhaps in "season" two.

Say what?!

https://www.pastemag...mic-just-8.html

This week, BOOM! Studios pulls its own vampiric Beyoncé move by revealing a surprise Angel series just eight days ahead of its release in comic shops—and exclusively in comic shops, as there will be no immediate digital distribution for two weeks. BOOM! pulled this off by shipping equal quantities of Angel #0 to match orders of Buffy the Vampire Slayer #4, which features Angel’s first appearance in the new continuity and leads directly into his solo series’ zero issue.
