Got some good views of the buildup, though (through certified filter glasses, of course)

@  RichardT1977 : (22 August 2017 - 10:56 PM)

I was in the zone of totality when the eclipse came. Unfortunately, I was also in the zone of cloud cover.

Blaze of Glory

@  Telly : (22 August 2017 - 07:24 PM)

was out at walmart early and ran into an old family friend. my phone was playing "blaze of glory" by bon jovi, she said she hadnt heard it for a long time. i said i like old music, its better than the crap they put out today. is this how OUR parents felt about our music?

@  unluckiness : (22 August 2017 - 09:44 AM)

Nah, they could tell by the lack of the very distinctive dialogue delivery. They just didn't want to be mean.

@  Dracula : (22 August 2017 - 08:42 AM)

Moon base is fine. I knew the castle was a total loss so I gave Olrox my best cape and told him he could have the throne room. The damn belmonts couldn't tell the difference

@  Pennpenn : (22 August 2017 - 06:39 AM)

@  Waspinator : (21 August 2017 - 11:02 PM)

Thankfully, Dracula's castle didn't escape the eclipse this time.

In retaliation, President Trump threatens to nuke the moon.

@  Nevermore : (21 August 2017 - 09:40 PM)

This just in: ISIS claims responsibility for the eclipse.

@  Diecast : (21 August 2017 - 06:09 PM)

Which left like a hundred disappointed middle schoolers.

@  Diecast : (21 August 2017 - 06:09 PM)

Where I'm located got 95% eclipse. Which lacked a worthwhile climax. I really should have driven into it, but I planned on going to my science teacher wife's school thing that got cancelled last minute.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 August 2017 - 03:44 PM)

I was considering trying to get the day off for it and driving down south to the US far enough that I could see the total eclipse, but after looking into it it seems like there's another total eclipse coming up in 2024 where the totality will be visible just 45 minutes south-west of me, so I figure I'll wait it out

@  Bass X0 : (21 August 2017 - 03:30 PM)

don't worry, social media didn't.

@  MEDdMI : (21 August 2017 - 02:59 PM)

@  2017 : (20 August 2017 - 09:39 PM)

This news about Joss Whedon sure was a thing to wake up to.

@  Sabrblade : (20 August 2017 - 06:59 PM)

To back up to the original question about Scramble City's existence in regards to the English-language cartoon continuity, the pack-in comic that came with the Australian DVD boxed set released by Madman did feature a timeline of events that included a point in history titles "Scramble City", so that comic may at least want us to "pretend" that Scramble City happened in the cartoon continuity. But then again, that same comic also used the Marvel Comics' asteroid crisis as the true reason for the Ark's launch, and included the Beast Wars as being unambiguously part of this timeline, so make of that comic's timeline what you will.

@  NightViper : (20 August 2017 - 09:16 AM)

And unlike Takara's JG1 that has been steadily evolving and passing itself down from writer to writer in more-or-less smooth transition, anyone going back now to Hasbro's G1 does feel a bit more like changing history rather than reviving or continuing it.

@  NightViper : (20 August 2017 - 09:11 AM)

Editors at Fun Pub didn't feel it was right to try to "fix" or otherwise change or alter other writers' works. Which is why everything Fun Pub-written became its own stream (Animated was written by the same creative team as the show, so it's one of the very few stories still set in its original continuity). So rather than write words into the original creative team's mouths, Wings only sought to offer one possible solution to the Constructicons weirdness.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 August 2017 - 08:24 PM)

Too bad there weren't that many Wings stories. On the other hand, JG1 is still continuing with stories!

@  Spacewarp : (19 August 2017 - 06:10 PM)

Wings is obviously not cartoon continuity, but is heavily indebted to it.

@  Spacewarp : (19 August 2017 - 06:09 PM)

Basically what my original point was that continuities based on the original cartoon but not actually a part of it have used what Pennpenn originally said.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 August 2017 - 05:42 PM)

I get what you mean, but the wording is awful. It's not possible for Wings to "alter" or "destroy" something it was never part of, nor really interacted with.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 August 2017 - 05:40 PM)

It didn't "alter the existing continuity". It's an entirely new one that left the cartoon's continuity exactly as it ever was.

@  Bass X0 : (19 August 2017 - 05:24 PM)

didn't it take the original cartoon continuity but change parts of it to make a new continuity? i said i'd have preferred it stayed within the original cartoon continuity instead of altering the existing continuity. thats what i would have done. stories would have been written around the existing stories.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 August 2017 - 04:24 PM)

Wings can't "destroy it even further" when it was never the cartoon continuity in the first place.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 August 2017 - 03:57 PM)

The problem is that it isn't really fixable without redoing it from the ground up. Or going into insane retcons and rewrites, which A) is about the same thing, and B) is kinda Takara's thing.

@  Bass X0 : (19 August 2017 - 03:22 PM)

I find its better to fix a broken continuity than to destroy it even further.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 August 2017 - 03:06 PM)

The cartoon couldn't even stay consistent with the cartoon, so why worry when something else can't, either?

@  Bass X0 : (19 August 2017 - 02:53 PM)

I never connected with the whole "Wings is similar to the cartoon continuity but several things are different" thing they had going on. they should really have done it so that it stayed in continuity with the cartoon but focused on the off-screen events prior, during and after the cartoon stories.

@  unluckiness : (19 August 2017 - 10:42 AM)

Not like it's ever relevant anyway.

@  Pennpenn : (19 August 2017 - 10:00 AM)

I mean, it doesn't make sense otherwise, regardless of how official particular fiction is.

The weekday furries that come into the store usually aren't too bad, they generally just come in wearing a tail, and that's it.

The weekend ones though are a pain. Coming in full furry costumes, and having sex in the bathrooms and out by the dumpsters.

How are you defining furry? Therians, otherkin, and Disney (or any anthropomorphized) characters may not apply depending on whom you're asking.

Pretty much. I make a point not to engage in this normally, myself.

Also, to go along with what Dissever said, I'm not entirely sure everyone is always talking about exactly the same things when they say "furries". Also, I've heard of a lot weirder stuff than this people can be into, and met some people who are into some of them, and in the grand scheme of things being furry seems as harmless as most other preferences.

Besides, it's possible that, in time, the internet will make furries of us all. icon-waspy.gif

I think you'll find people have as little sympathy for them too. Nothing like seeing a three hundred pound guy with Spock ears farting every time he so much as moves.

At the very least, I'll give furries this, of the various fanatical fanbases, they seem to manage to keep their eight down. Probably from all that running pretending to be wolves, or stallions, or something.

If you're not a furry, they're all furries. If you are what others would consider a furry, then therians, otherkin, etc matter a LOT more. It's TRUKK NOT MUNKY or FIRRIB/FIBRIR territory.

Exactly. I guess I could be considered one under the loose definition, but all the... weird stuff that the label has gotten associated with is too much trouble to bother wearing. I don't want to have to waste 20 minutes explaining that no, I don't believe I have the soul of a wombat, or whatever sick stuff people think it means. I just like using animal stereotypes in stories, that's all.

Furries really get a lot of jive from practically everyone.

The vocal majority basically ruins it for the same ones.

But of all the fetish fandoms out there, it does have a lot of drama. Everything from complaining about stealing artwork, original character do not steal, fursecution, etc.

Yeah, of all the groups that people generally sprinkle their disdain on, I think it's close to universal among them that furries are the most creepily misguided.
The fascination with all of it is goddamn baffling, personally. But I collect toys for kids, so I dunno if I'm fit to evaluate how anyone gets their jollies.

The thing is, furry is a broad enough category to be almost a meaningless word. It runs a spectrum from "thinks Disney stories with humanoid animals are cool" to "wants to have sex with animals" to "thinks they are actually a werewolf stuck in human form".

I never thought that was actually part of the whole furry thing, myself. I'd heard of the fursuits or whatever, and attraction to anthro versions of animals or animal characters. But actual animals? Never heard that.

That's cool.

QUOTE
to "wants to have sex with animals"

As long as they don't cross into the realm of actually doing it (which even in the furry fandom is looked down upon, except in the the fringes), then whatever. Drawing someone doing their dog never hurt anyone, unless someone saw it by accident and needed eye bleach. Fantasizing about it, fine, just don't tell everyone about it. Start eying someone's pussy, and then you're crossing the line.

QUOTE

Mostly harmless in theory, though there are some who end up having children and try to push that onto them, or try to get feral.
