I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)

Oof-

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 PM)

If I had a sarcasm powered mouth.. ooohh waaaiiittt...

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 05:01 PM)

Heh

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 July 2020 - 02:39 PM)

The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:47 AM)

(And the 0th anniversary of the last time I couldn't do math.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

"I have regained control. And I don't need magic... now, I am magic."

 
A singular statement, an awakening that was vocalized, lingers in the night. Once a librarian, a young woman revels in her new form. As powerful wings carried her through a forest in the midst of night, she searched fruitlessly for the source of her ire. Patch--whether meaning something to mend things or the piece ripped from a whole--carried on unstopping through the night. Morning arrived and she soon heard a familiar voice lingering in the back of her mind,

"Why, good morning. I know you're going to bring destruction to your enemies...but do you know where you're going?"

Patch adjusted her wings to brake her speed, landing on a sturdy-looking tree branch. "Sorry," she muttered. "Distracted for a moment. Unfortunately it seems there are still a few memories of my old life rattling about in my head."

 

She scowled. "I'm afraid I'm not quite clear on where to go. I had thought being airborne would give me the best chance of spotting an entire nation, but I've seen nothing on the horizon yet. If you have suggestions, please, I'm all ears."

"The Old Publishing District. It's the most populated area in this region. More people overall, more magic users likely to be living among the populace. The fact that I know the district as well as I do is just a bonus."

There was a pause, then the voice whispered, "Stealth may be of the essence since this doesn't seem like a particularly subtle plan by being in such a populated area. But there's no use delaying, is there? Keep to the skies to avoid prying eyes. We wouldn't want you to be stopped prematurely, would we?"

Over a day non-stop Patch travelled, keeping unseen among the clouds until she reached the Old Publishing District. Patch spotted nothing suspicious on the way but whether that was because nothing was there or because it became overcast and then started raining. When Patch found a good vantage point on top of a building, the voice asked, "Are there any locations you think would be better than others?"

"Not particularly. It's a big town, and the mystically inclined don't come here to be conspicuous. So it's going to be a matter of sniffing them out," Patch muttered.

"I intend to do the latter, but I shall wait until after nightfall to move under the cover of darkness. There is a certain convenient item I seek that would be risky to retrieve in broad daylight." She crawled closer to the center of the roof, where she would be harder to spot from below, and crouched in a pose not unlike that of a gargoyle.With her magically altered body's lack of a need for sleep, she instead simply... stopped thinking, for a time.

Patch's eyes snapped open. "As I am no longer a mortal being, I have no need to fear death. I do not even fear the end of my existence as I am now. There is but one thing that concerns me - that my destruction will come before I am able to use my power to effect true change in this world. I do not want to regret unnecessary haste." She rose to her feet. "Being subtle and deliberate for now is fine... the time to use this power to its fullest is coming."

 

Spreading her wings wide, she took off into the night sky.

She arrived home. At least, what had been her home.

 

Landing in the darkened alleyway on the side of the District's library, she moved aside some strategically placed crates and other assorted rubbish to uncover the door to the basement room she had used as a living space. She grabbed the handle.

 

It didn't budge.

 

As a human mage, she had been accustomed to leaving a small locking spell upon the door whenever she came and went, to prevent ruffians and other unwelcome guests from poking around where they didn't belong. Casting and removing the spell was as easy for her old self as swiping a subway pass would have been for an inhabitant of the old Londokyork. But now that she was no longer capable of even minor spellcasting, it seemed... she had quite literally locked herself out.

 

But this would prove only a minor inconvenience, as she slammed a fist into the door, causing sparks of magical energy to trace along the door's edges. She turned the handle again and opened the door. The hinges creaked in protest as it swung fully open, revealing a room in total darkness. Proceeding inside, she could see the bookshelves where her collection of magical tomes sat. Her inhuman eyes saw the shadows that skittered among the shelves, chattering excitedly among themselves, glancing at her with eyes like flickering embers. A grimoire opened an ethereal eye in the middle of its spine to look her over. 

 

As a human, she had been haunted by the eyes that watched her from the darkness. Now, she could watch them.

 

The spirits in the room seemed agitated by her presence. Not surprising. "Relax. I'm not here for any of you. Just came back for a little something - ah, here it is."

 

She picked out a spare cloak from a closet at the far end of the room. Wrapping her batlike wings along her sides, she donned the cloak and pulled its hood over her head. Then, she proceeded to leave the way she came. 

 

As she closed the door behind her, she smiled underneath the hood of the cloak. "Now, let's go for a walk."

"So you decide to risk discovery on a mere cloak. Maybe it's just me...but your mortality is showing. Something I'd like to note is that while subtlety has its place, numerous others are moving to effect true change in this world. It would be such a shame to miss your chance."
