Count Zero?

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 February 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Oh boy, here we go.

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

Vegan meat needs bacon

@  Paladin : (18 February 2020 - 08:43 PM)

vegan meat must taste delicious. they're grass-fed and regularly exercised....

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 03:59 PM)

Just use the hose.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 03:52 PM)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

@  Telly : (16 February 2020 - 03:47 PM)

its like that scene in commando. the bad guy has to get to a phone to call the big bad to tell him arnold isnt on the plane. that wouldnt happen today

@  Rycochet : (16 February 2020 - 03:18 PM)

Watching early episodes of the x-files will make you feel super old once you start to notice the techology they use, and the technology they lack.

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 February 2020 - 02:38 PM)

While browsing Youtube vids I read these comments: 'The X Files is such an underrated show' and another 'Brent Spiner is a underrated actor' I want to punch something.

Valentine's day. Bummer.

@  Otaku : (14 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

So is that an occasion for congratulations or condolences, Telly?  I see it as a good thing, but that is a matter of personal preference; easier for me to keep straight who is who when the names don't change. XP

@  Telly : (14 February 2020 - 12:48 AM)

damn. ive been going by "telly" on here for nearly 14 years...

@  TM2-Megatron : (11 February 2020 - 08:06 PM)

I've seen it. It didn't really deliver on the title

@  Paladin : (11 February 2020 - 05:28 PM)

we don't need to see that. we're living it.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 February 2020 - 03:42 PM)

Anyone seen an old British movie called 'The Earth dies screaming' it's like a Doctor Who serial minus the Doctor.

I haven't tried it on my Macbook. But given how it handles Youtube and Netflix, I'm not even going to bother.

It does work just fine on PS4 and iPad.

Again, I had to install Chrome for video apps.  Haven't had an issue, even though I had issues with some sites on Safari like Hulu and Netflix.

Watching Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers for the first time in over twenty years, Entrapta from Netflix's She-ra is totally Gadget Hackwrench.

Gadget and Chip are voiced by the same person.

 

So too do Dale and Zipper share a voice actor.

 

Meanwhile, Monterey Jack is one guy with two different voice actors, both of whom also voice a member of Fat Cat's gang (specifically, Fat Cat himself and Mepps).

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.

My favorite story of Disney sharing voice actors is Lady and the Tramp II, in which Jeff Bennett voiced not only both Jock and Trusty, but Tramp, Jim Dear, and the dogcatcher OC.

 

They do a good job finding replacement voices sometimes, but that was not one of those times.

Watching the X-Men:  Evolution episode "Spykecam" I noticed some changes.  The music that Rogue and Kitty dance to (both outside and in the play) is different than what was originally aired / on the DVD.  I think this may have been something that changed while ago, as I seem to recall it being mentioned years ago.  Additionally, when Sabertooth attacks the kids, he backhands Kitty Pryde and sends her flying into Spyke.  Most of that is cut and she basically is only shown falling onto Spyke.  So some of the violence is removed.

So we finished Milo Murphys Law. and sadly, there were only two seasons ever made. :(

 

I tried watching Star vs the Universe but I couldn't get into it, and I didn't think it was quite a good fit for my four year old.

Star takes a while to get good.  But man those first few episodes have fantastic animation.

Only two seasons yet. The creator is quoted as stating that a third season would be likely to be green-lit once the show got on Disney+.

Yeah, I saw that, but that sounds like something that he is hoping for, rather than something that is likely to happen.

Well, yes, re: hoping for, but I don't think it's without cause.

Note that Disney shows taking a long time between seasons has lots of precedent. Just look at Milo-predecessor Phineas and Ferb!

 

 

(Heck, the most recent episode aired on May 18, 2019, it's hardly even been gone!)

I think it's on there in every other region, but here in Australia there's no sign of it because Foxtel allegedly has it locked down til Feb. At least that's what some random assumed when I googled it.
