They need to make a dragonbot named "Burninatron."

@  BlackMax : (27 February 2017 - 09:15 PM)

I find upcoming Last Knght's Steelbane sexy. A very Skyrim name for a giant robot who is also a dragon? Be still my heart.

@  MEDdMI : (27 February 2017 - 06:24 PM)

I never found most Hollywood heartthrobs sexy, even if they were around my age. I think I knew even back then that the char they play doesn't reflect how the actor really looks/behaves.

@  Rycochet : (27 February 2017 - 06:11 PM)

The only thing I've seen with Megan Fox in is the Jonah Hex movie... She was bad, but everyone and everything was bad.

Ha! You can't fool a true Z-block afficionado like me! That's actually an S-block viewed from behind!

@  ▲ndrusi : (27 February 2017 - 04:27 PM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (27 February 2017 - 04:26 PM)

Because I definitely wasn't. Nope. Not at all.

@  ▲ndrusi : (27 February 2017 - 04:26 PM)

Am I the only straight male Nintendo fan who was never strangely aroused by the Tetris Z-block?

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 01:28 PM)

Her acting makes her come across as a living Pat Lee illustration.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 01:27 PM)

No. No, you're not.

@  Bass X0 : (27 February 2017 - 01:26 PM)

And am I the only straight male Transformers fan who never found Megan Fox attractive?

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 01:21 PM)

Especially since she's the same age as my parents.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 01:19 PM)

It's like I instinctually knew that by the time I watched the movies, it'd be weird since IRL she was way older than me.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 01:18 PM)

Am I, like, the only straight male Star Wars fan who never had a thing for Leia?

Yeah, that was a hard one to take. So many nerds from '77 on must've grown up having a crush on her

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:34 AM)

I mean, I knew it was coming, but just hearing Carrie say "May the Force be with you" hurt :(

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:30 AM)

I am glad they made the right choice with Best Animated, even if it was a tough call this year.

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:28 AM)

I remember him from the old days on Breaker High airing on YTV

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:28 AM)

Also, Ryan Gosling. Ugh, go #### yourself Ryan Gosling, with your perfect bone structure

@  NotVeryKnightly : (27 February 2017 - 12:26 AM)

Since there's way more nominees than winners in every category that's not exactly unusual.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:25 AM)

Even then, I think it lost more nominations than it won.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:24 AM)

I think the reason La La Land won so many awards is because it was basically Hollywood stroking its own ego

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:20 AM)

Kinda glad. I like Emma Stone, but for whatever reason I can't stand that movie. I'm surprised it didn't win though, as it was typical Oscar bait

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:19 AM)

This is just goddamn surreal.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:19 AM)

Holy shit. It had the second-most nominations of any movie, and La La Land just lost Best Picture.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:11 AM)

"Look where I've been, I make everything happen! Look at that mean Mini Maui just tikkity tappin'! Ha ha ha ha HA HA HA HEY!"

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:10 AM)

Yeah, same. "You're Welcome" is honestly the best song in the movie.

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:06 AM)

I liked the Moana song, though personally I enjoyed You're Welcome a little bit more because of the humor.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:04 AM)

Ah, well. As much as him not getting an Oscar hurts, Lin-Manuel has a shitload of awards already, so missing out on one isn't too bad. The guy managed to hit the jackpot with the Tonys for Hamilton and win a Grammy for it and get an Emmy... Somewhere. Don't know where he got the Emmy.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:02 AM)

@NVK: I realize that, but I still don't like that a terrible Zak Snyder film managed to even get an award.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:00 AM)

Look, I can understand The Force Awakens not getting a single award. Hell, I can even understand why Transformers lost to The Golden Compass.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (27 February 2017 - 12:00 AM)

But Moana and Suicide Squad weren't nominated for the same things.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 11:47 PM)

We officially live in a world where a film involving Zak Snyder is apparently more deserving of an award than Lin-Manuel Miranda.

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 February 2017 - 10:58 PM)

I was pretty shocked Star Trek Beyond lost out in Best Makeup to Suicide Squad. Killer Croc looked good, but Trek had a lot of good alien makeup

@  Maruten : (26 February 2017 - 10:36 PM)

I was surprised to see that everyone's so into La La Land. On paper it seems right up my alley, but I thought it was pretty... meh.

@  ▲ndrusi : (26 February 2017 - 09:38 PM)

I read that as EPCOT status

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 09:26 PM)

I have a sinking feeling La La Land is going to win Best Song and keep Lin-Manuel Miranda from achieving EGOT status.

@  Echowarrior : (26 February 2017 - 07:12 PM)

Our Hydra is better than Marvel's Hydra. Just saying.

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.

It's pretty much the "most accepted" group to just generally hate on.

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.
