@  Foffy : (18 July 2019 - 04:45 PM)

that's right. my gym teacher is a clown. new series coming to disney channel next fall

@  Foffy : (18 July 2019 - 04:44 PM)

all these clowns are making me run really fast.

@  Sabrblade : (18 July 2019 - 12:10 PM)

All this awesome SDCC news is really making these boards run slowly.

@  Bass X0 : (18 July 2019 - 07:54 AM)

Racism must be stopped. No matter the cost.

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2019 - 07:49 AM)

Tine to stop buttering it up.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 July 2019 - 09:43 PM)

Well shucks.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 July 2019 - 08:14 PM)

The joke is a husk of its former self.

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

Pop.

@  Shrug : (17 July 2019 - 10:15 AM)

Something something... corn bread?

@  MEDdMI : (17 July 2019 - 07:21 AM)

Ok, ok. Enough of the puns and let's all thank Kal for the amaizeing job he did.

@  Paladin : (17 July 2019 - 06:24 AM)

by now I think this jokes' been creamed.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 July 2019 - 07:47 PM)

Not placing much stalk in this conversation.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 06:22 PM)

That's so corny.

@  Shrug : (16 July 2019 - 06:07 PM)

It's absurd how happy I am that a post of mine made the front page of Reddit.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 July 2019 - 05:46 PM)

Aww, shucks.

@  TriBlurr : (16 July 2019 - 05:45 PM)

Not till I taste the corn

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 05:43 PM)

You guys aren't being very nice. You're supposed to tell me I did "good, really good!"

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 July 2019 - 05:40 PM)

It's techno-organic corn

@  TriBlurr : (16 July 2019 - 05:26 PM)

We have a cornfield? Can I get a few ears?

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 10:25 AM)

You can make a new one. I doubt anybody would stop you.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 10:16 AM)

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:39 AM)

Scratch that; that's insulting to honest salads. Whatever that was was the text equivalent of hamburger.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:38 AM)

Would you like some dressing to go with your word salad?

@  Paladin : (16 July 2019 - 09:34 AM)

yes; it now goes "shit piss hug *BLEEP* ^$@^ motherhuger **** turd fart encyclopedia & Socialism."

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:24 AM)

This is an American site, but isn't that unnecessarily severe language? IIRC it's one of the top four offensive pejoratives to English people

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2019 - 08:52 AM)

It's amusing how so many (U.S.) wankers in this world love to whine "capitalism good socialism bad!" in the abstract while simultaneously pretending that megacorporations dominating de facto monopolies is anathema to the core capitalistic principle of competition benefits everyone.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 05:17 AM)

I know Shockwave's super mode is pretty lame and Magnus is kinda greebly but it's not that bad.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:38 AM)

Though with the luck and caliber of leaders we've had of late in the darkest timeline, maybe it's too much to hope for.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:36 AM)

Just like democracy, it's not perfect but better than the present alternatives. Capitalism as it's practiced today won't be able to weather the coming wave of automation, though. Best to plan for it and hope for a gentle transition rather than the aforementioned collapse

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 12:27 AM)

Capitalism is the worst amiright? Sent from my iPhone

@  Vexwing : (15 July 2019 - 11:24 PM)

Because the collapse is gonna be just great.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2019 - 10:41 PM)

Let's hope this is late stage and we're on the cusp of something better.

@  abates : (15 July 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Late stage capitalism is the absolute best.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 01:33 PM)

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]

Bite my shiny metal asss!

 

One of the best quotes from the show. While I have a couple of seasons on DVD and movies, I was never a big fan of the show, mostly because I wasn't into the comedy side of it.

Good News Everybody!

While i don't think the comedy landed right every time. There is nothing quite like Futuramas satirical future utopian dystopian mess of a Universe. :)

And getting the amount of celebrities they did to voice themselves as pickled heads in jars? Pure gold. The late great Leonard Nimiy right from the Pilot!

And Zapp Brannigan and Kif.

What makes Cowboy Bebop no different? or do you like adult animation to be more serious like Spawn, Castlevania, Aeon Flux and Japan and Japan makes better adult animation than western as they take risks and do different flavors?

I agree on that and originally Zapp was gonna be voiced by Phil Hartman until he died and had someone to replace him?

 

And you glad this show ended on a  good note than become a rotting zombiefied corpse like Matt's other show has become?

Well, it did come back as a half zombified corpse 10 years after it was cancelled. The show wasn't the same after it's revival, unfortunately. Something was missing.

i still wonder how different things would've been if Phil Hartman had lived long enough to voice Zapp Brannigan.

I'm a more a series plot kind of guy along with good characters who change as the show progresses, its not that I disliked the show, it just kind of, wore off me as the characters pretty much reset every ep, much like the Simpsons, did, I just not really hooked to that kind of show, thou more serious stories are what entertain me, its not that I mind comedy, I just not really a fun of the shiny future, I prefer the used kind, there just something about Simpsons and Futurama that I never really liked, they couldn't hook me, I think in some respects they came about at the wrong time for me, I was to young to really get it and about the only story in Simpsons I liked was who shot Mister Burns. I think I just have a sort of standard but then when I was younger, I had this VHS tape with a bunch of Vehicle Voltron eps on and it was something I loved to watch loads of times and back then I wasn't even aware anime existed or that a lot of what I was seeing on TV was coming in from the US

im probly the only that thinks this, but that was NOT a good ending. it felt more like a "f you!" than anything. "were finally getting fry and lela together! surprise! now they arent again! fooled you!". i suppose we can assume they got together once the episode ended, but undoing the whole thing at the end felt like a cop out

To me it seems like the perfect ending for tv series, with it being a full time loop. They break time and the only to fix it is to go back to before the device was made, back to where they were at the start of the series, so the series rerunning ends up being "natural". Its also a workable ending for if they ever decided to do anything more with it becuase there is always the potential for the loop to break. Its an open door without a cliffhanger.

They spent a lifetime with just each other. I'm not sure what more someone rooting for fry and leela could want?
I finally got rid of that big white box.
