i want a "i survived 'rona and all i got was this lousy t-shirt"

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 July 2020 - 03:42 PM)

Slogan for 2021: "I Lived, Bitch."

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

They should make the next book in the Survivors series 'I SURVIVED CORONA VIRUS 2020'

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

YEEEE I'M A SURVIVOR-

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:59 AM)

Probably gonna assemble Devastator after work.

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:58 AM)

Ooooh. Overload arrived. He's surprisingly fun.

what would Canada do with Yogi?

@  Cyoti : (01 July 2020 - 12:51 PM)

We can deport Yogi back to Canada now.

@  Sabrblade : (01 July 2020 - 12:50 PM)

Jellystone National Pawk. A westful wetweat.

@  Rycochet : (01 July 2020 - 12:47 PM)

Jellystone. We're going to be plunged into a decade of poor animation. Fortunately we've been led by bad cartoon characters for years so we won't notice much difference.

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 July 2020 - 06:19 AM)

what next? YELLOWSTONE?

@  Nevermore : (01 July 2020 - 05:46 AM)

Thanks, dead person.

@  Bass X0 : (01 July 2020 - 05:06 AM)

congratulations to all survivors of the first half of 2020.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 10:21 PM)

21 for me, but after numerous repetitions I got it down to 17 and a half.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 06:16 PM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

Well, they censored Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash :rolleyes

@  Paladin : (29 June 2020 - 05:43 PM)

maybe New Mutants is too bad even for D+.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 June 2020 - 05:00 PM)

X-Men films are coming to Disney+ next month. But will they censor Hugh Jackman's butt?

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 June 2020 - 12:44 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 11:59 AM)

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 09:53 AM)

I will grant you a recolored body, and recolored troops to command.

@  Cybersnark : (29 June 2020 - 09:47 AM)

I don't want to be reissued. This body sucks, I wanna be updated.

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 09:43 AM)

I definitely don't intend to be reissued. Nobody would buy me.

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 08:31 AM)

will anybody else attempt to be reissued?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 June 2020 - 07:51 AM)

*Gasp* Decepticons re-writing history to serve their own needs?!?!

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 05:48 AM)

The whole point of the DJD is that they're fanatical Megatron fanboys (especially Tarn) to the point of having their own headcanon taking priority of the actual canon, simply speaking.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 04:01 AM)

They didn't know the war was over until later. And then they denied it anyway.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 June 2020 - 10:47 PM)

"He's comin' right for us!"

@  Telly : (28 June 2020 - 08:40 PM)

was that even still in effect once the war ended?

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 June 2020 - 06:51 PM)

According to Roberts, soldiers can ignore the order to spare Whirl if he's directly threatening them. But mostly the DJD were out of their heads on Nuke and not really caring much at the time.

@  Xaaron : (28 June 2020 - 06:41 PM)

Also, they were hopped up on goofballs at the time.

If I understand correctly the original Muppet Babies is a mess rights wise because of all the Movie, TV and song clips used. Apparently none of them were signed for later release so all those rights would have to be arranged and paid for now for any sort of release which is why there's never been one.


-ZacWilliam, I mean that's probably doable for Disney, sure but it's time and effort intensive and a money outlay and they don't have much incentive to care given all the stuff they have free and easy access to.

 

It's certainly a thing Disney could afford to do, but they haven't bothered clearing the rights for the final seasons of TMS, so poor lost Muppet Babies never had a chance.

This is pretty much what is going on with Muppet Babies.  The show has been blocked from even getting a DVD release because of it.  The only home media for the show are soem old VHS tapes that got released before the rights issues really came into play.

There were a couple of DVD releases packed in with some Muppet Babies plush toys released back in the 2000s, though, but which only had about two episodes per disc.

 

Funny you should mention those VHS tape releases. I think I used to have all seven of them. Three were two-episode tapes, one had just the Valentine's Day episode (with one scene edited to remove a moment when Skeeter suddenly has a beard put on her face), and the other three released as part of the "Yes I Can" series also having two episodes each along with a new live-action theme song and wraparound segments starring Kermit and Robin.

Oh. Yeah, right, Star Trek isn't Fox, don't know what I was thinking. Guess Fox just sucks at HD upgrades overall.

I'm 100% certain they restored the series in OAR and then chopped off the sides for their faux-widescreen bulljive.

 

It wouldn't make any sense to cut first and then restore.

One assumes they must... but do they WANT it? If Lucas himself wanted to excise it from existence, there's not a lot of reason to assume Disney's going to just throw the show on their streaming service just because they CAN.

Lucas wanted it shelved for quality purposes and not his weird "dewbacks walking through every shot is how I always imagined it" after the fact CGI fest.

 

I wouldn't look forward to it every showing up again in an official capacity.

I very much doubt the Diahann Carroll segment would sit well with their target demographic.  Could you imagine the "millions of voices cried out in "problematic", and were suddenly silent".  "The special was released, I feel something terrible has happened"

 

It would probably get released on Hulu

I'm just hoping some old live action movies and obscure Wonderful World of Disney classics get to come back.

 

I need "Condorman" and "The Island on the Top of the World"  Everyone needs to see Mako with the classic "Oomiak fight like Bear! RAWR!" line :D

 

Yes I grew up on a lot of bad live action Disney films. Bring on the Bruce Campbell version of "The Love Bug"!

Maybe DisneyCorp can buy up whatever company has the rights to the 8 episodes that were released as "best of Muppets", and then they can make their own sets finally.

 

Even the current Disney sets are woefully incomplete.

 

Season 1 in particular has quite a few cuts.

 

I'd hope streaming rights wouldn't be as tangled (or expensive) as home media ones.

Considering the full run of Malcolm in the Middle is available to watch on Amazon but has never been released on DVD, I would hope so too. I think legally it's considered the same thing as airing reruns.
