Otherworld and The Star Lost aren't too bad for a boring three days off.

I've had to do fix fics for my own fix fics.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 May 2021 - 02:19 PM)

"Fix fics" are their own entire category of fanfiction.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 May 2021 - 01:32 PM)

Is fanfic "fixing" an author's story? (Often it is, I think.)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 May 2021 - 12:15 PM)

I don't think people repainting and such are nessicarly "Fixing" a toy, just modding it to their likes. The problem is when they go around claiming to have "Fixed' it, that I feel it becomes a problem.

"I was gonna buy some Toyhax labels for Earthrise Auto-Whatsit, but since I'd be disrespecting the artistic expression of the designers, I think I'll just forget the whole thing."

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 May 2021 - 06:41 AM)

Like, in general, not going into specific bands or covers. Because I could point out plenty of repainted toys I didn't like as much as the original, too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 May 2021 - 06:39 AM)

Is a musician covering a song "fixing" it?

@  Nevermore : (17 May 2021 - 05:15 AM)

So, then, isn't redecoing or retooling an existing toy also "fixing" someone else's art?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 10:07 PM)

A toy is not on the same level as a piece of drawn art, true, but it is 100% an entertainment product.

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 05:05 PM)

A toy is an object of utility, Comparing that to a piece of drawn art is grossly ignoring the difference between the two. Also, you didn't answer my questions. Try again.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 04:25 PM)

Part of the difference is that those covers are primarily one person's art. Sure, you probably have an inker and a colorist, but the lines and composition are one person. A toy however is a team design at pretty much all levels.

@  Cyoti : (16 May 2021 - 03:52 PM)

toymaking is a collaborative process, you have to make compromises and factories are going to get things wrong

@  tigerhawk : (16 May 2021 - 03:43 PM)

Earthrise had a few holes, Runamuck's legs YIKES!

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 May 2021 - 03:37 PM)

I doubt that say, the designer for Kingdom Cheetor was happy about every bit of unpainted plastic on it.

@  Bass X0 : (16 May 2021 - 03:28 PM)

J Scott Campbell recently had his Spiderman cover "fixed" by someone online. A few weeks ago, someone on twitter "fixed" someone's Sonic the Hedgehog fan art where Sonic, Tails and Knuckles were drawn as humans. Both times and other times, the "fixer" gets called out and criticised as you shouldn't go around "fixing" someone else's art because its rude and disrespectful to the original artist. And I was thinking isn't "fixed your s*** for ya" exactly what toy customisers do?

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 02:28 PM)

Have you ever changed your car in any way whatsoever compared to the factory configuration, or are you leaving the designer's art unchanged in that case as well?

@  CORVUS : (16 May 2021 - 02:28 PM)

It's best not to ponder it too hard.

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 04:16 AM)

Bass X0, I really wonder sometimes how you come up with these random tangents apropos of nothing.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 04:11 AM)

It's collaborative art.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 May 2021 - 04:07 AM)

Toys are subject to budget constraints, so its not like customizing would ruin the designer's vision or whatever.

@  Bass X0 : (16 May 2021 - 03:38 AM)

Isn't customising a toy just "fixing other people's art"?

That might actually be a fake noise they make electric cars make so pedestrians can hear them. Some cars even let you pick out what noise they make.

It is the year 2050. Why is "OK, Millennial" trending?

My step-brother is solidly in Gen X, and my impression of them is that they're (by far) the most comfortable, both with themselves and the world at large. They're progressive enough not to be Boomer-esque Dinosaurs, but not so impulsive and unrelentingly angry as to have contributed significantly to the hyper-polarized state of the world today (that's all on boomers and millennials).

 

Personally I'm in a weird place, generationally. Technically I'm a Millennial, but born in 1983 right on the cusp separating them from Generation X. Add to that, growing up with my step-brother, who's about 12 years older than me, means I was exposed to and have nostalgia for all the things from both groups. I tend to think more like a Gen X'er, but have most of the Millennial problems.... namely, the cost of living (housing) making it nigh impossible to comfortably progress past a certain point in life, which means I get to live the lifestyle of an unmarried, childless 26-30 year-old with a full-time job in perpetuity. I guess that could sound good on paper (for a while), but the Gen X part of me is starting to maybe think about eventually wanting a kid now that I'm in my mid-30s.

Being born in 1981, I am a millennial. People don't realize that when they look at me. They think all millennials are 20's somethings that can't drive a Stick or use a rotary phone.They have these fantasies that we can't use these things and act like Goolge and youtube don't exist. Sure, I can't tie my tie, but I know where I can learn the windsor knot the one time I need to tie one every few years or so. I can operate a vinyl record player, use old analog TVs with antennas, and other such things.

 

 

 

Speaking of OK Boomer, I was on Slickdeals the other day when I saw a deal posted on their front page for a cordless electric wine bottle opener All I could think was Ok Boomer.

The severed heads in jars that belong to the vastly wealthy boomers have finally come up with a retort to Ok Boomer. Unfortunately for them, the millennial generation no longer use social media, phones don't work in the madmaxian hellscape.

Fox Media LLC filed a trademark application for "OK, boomer" in the newest reported attempt to cash in on the wildly popular phrase.

 

The filing was discovered by trademark lawyer Josh Gerben, who tweeted that it was filed on November 11, and says that Fox likely intends to use the phrase as the name of a reality, comedy or game show. https://www.business...ication-2019-11

I'd think we would have hit peak boomer in the mid-60s! After all, not a lot of them were dying yet, but they stopped making any new ones. And the oldest boomers are in their early seventies, which means it's only downhill from here.
