Circuit-breaker '84, this is Megatron's rubber duck. We've got ourselves a Rodimus Convoy. Do you copy? Over.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 07:06 AM)

I'm not going to sit here and bicker with you. I've made my point very clear and have nothing more to say on the issue.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 July 2020 - 07:00 AM)

I can't do anything to prevent hurricanes either but it'd be absurd to suggest I therefore shouldn't talk about them.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:57 AM)

Basically neither you nor I even like South Park anyways so the best you can do is leave it alone rather than suggest it is corrupting hearts and minds.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 July 2020 - 06:55 AM)

In that case I'm... not sure what the point is?

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:53 AM)

Nobody should be taking their morals from South Park. You can't prevent people from doing it. It's an artistic work with fans. I don't think I'm off-track.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 July 2020 - 06:51 AM)

As far as I can tell you just of course'd the thing you were poopooing...

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:47 AM)

Also, this is starting to get a bit too serious for the shoutbox (though it already was)

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:47 AM)

"It's that they're internalizing the overall attitude that the writers display through the show's writing." Of course, that's South Park's "artistic" style. It's what South Park's audience wants, and that's okay.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 July 2020 - 06:47 AM)

You can probably finish the sentence "I got 50% of my sense of humor from" with the name of some fictional work.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:45 AM)

And it still wouldn't be S.W.A.T.'ss or Grey's Anatomy's or South Park's fault.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 July 2020 - 06:45 AM)

The idea isn't that people are taking South Park's in-universe parody moral lessons seriously (though as Nevermore points out, you can't safely assume that isn't also happening). It's that they're internalizing the overall attitude that the writers display through the show's writing.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:45 AM)

"People say" those people are right, and you should listen to them. We can't protect people from themselves, but you can advise them well.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2020 - 06:27 AM)

So many medical disasters because someone took what they saw on a hospital show at face value.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2020 - 06:25 AM)

So many people who think police and court procedure works like it does in Hollywood, and act accordingly. Sometimes to their own disadvantage, sometimes just to the frustration of well-meaning authorities.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2020 - 06:24 AM)

People say "you shouldn't take your morals from a TV show" all the time, but regardless of how these people want things to work doesn't mean other people aren't doing it anyways.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:01 AM)

And I mean, if you're looking for a 1950s conservative position on something, it's certainly that a TV show is rotting children's minds.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:00 AM)

Conservatives are not hiding under the bed waiting to ruin... uh... Family Guy of all things? And like, nobody should be taking their morals from South Park. Expecting such things is impractical.

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

It was just the cartoon with those foul mouthed kids in the UK until that bubble burst after the movie. Reviewers joked the movies target audience would be unable to see it for the rating.

@  Paladin : (15 July 2020 - 05:14 PM)

see also: "South Park." the show that poisoned a generation by teaching them "it's stupid to feel for other people."

@  Rycochet : (15 July 2020 - 11:04 AM)

'Take that! People who care about things!'

@  Rycochet : (15 July 2020 - 11:02 AM)

With Brian, he stopped being the voice of reason and started to be the right wing notion of a liberal, someone who's lazy, pretentious, doesn't work at anything, is every bit as abusive as the rest of the cast and only wins arguments with strawmen.

@  Otaku : (15 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

Of course, I stopped enjoying Family Guy around that time, so my bias is clear. XP

@  Otaku : (15 July 2020 - 10:54 AM)

Is it because they changed or we changed?  Stuff that was charming, or at least, funny at first can get really annoying the longer you know a person... and I find that can go for fictional characters as well.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

familyguyjar.png

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 July 2020 - 03:45 AM)

One example is Family Guy where around season 8 Brian is suddenly reviled by everyone and has acted way out of character since.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 July 2020 - 03:44 AM)

My least favorite thing in fiction is when it changes hands so you get a author, writer or showrunner who hates a character or messes with a arc/layout.

"Here's a little---whatever. A little thing. A disclosure. An insight. Revisionism---I've always been fascinated by it. By the idea of a writer going back and altering things. Make no mistake: an edit is a profoundly aggressive act. As Froid once said, we grieve for the murdered word. If you want to get the measure of an author, don't look at what they've left on the page.... look at what they've taken away." -- Rung (MTMTE #28)

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 12:46 PM)

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.)

Ugh, why did that have to be P-Bandai?  That is actually significantly different then the base MS it is derived from.  We get so little late UC stuff too, I just wish this was a mass release.

 

With Bandai going this route, think Quess' Jagd-Doga will be P-Bandai as well, or get a mass release?  We know it is likely going to be coming eventually in some form.

If you have Adult Swim On Demand with your cable or satelite provider, check them out. 

 

I was poking through last night, and found that they had episodes of both IBO and Unicorn.

I never liked the Destiny as a suit.  Always felt like a rip off of the Strike to me.

That's pretty much exactly what it was.  Destiny is just a refined/advanced version of the Perfect Strike, which was also one of the Freedom's original working concepts.

 

Not sure what you mean by the second comment, though.  Strike never fought Destiny.  The original Strike was destroyed when Mwu La Flaga tanked a Lohengrin blast from the Dominion to save the Archangel's bridge.  The Strike Rouge is put out of commission when Kira uses it in a desperation raid in order to obtain the Strike Freedom.

Woot.

Wish the new Gundam looked a bit less like Barbatos. But otherwise I'm looking forward to this. Glimpses a couple other interesting new MS in the trailer too.

Hope we get the name of the Gundam soon. Also, maybe I'm reading the translation wrong, but does it say the pilot is a girl?

Anyway. Hope we get some good kits from this too.

Pilot's a boy. I'm hearing Vistario Afram as a possible romanization.

 

Gundam's name is

ガンダム・端白星(はじろぼし)

...which I don't understand how to read. Something White Star? I guess they're hiding its original identity for the time being.

Am I the only one who thinks the new hero looks a hell of a lot like Atra?

Like, I was assuming this was her and Mikazuki (and Kudelia)'s kid, piloting a rebuilt Barbatos --and can't you imagine certain parties pissing themselves if Barbatos were to suddenly reappear, like the Ghost of Injustices Past? (Which is the kind of thing I could imagine Ride's group getting up to, come to think of it.)

Setting it during the series just makes me wonder if Atra could've had a long-lost brother that she knew nothing about.

Amusingly, supposedly during the announcement event they clarified that he wasn't Akatsuki.

 

Looking into the Marchosias thing, it seems a pretty good bet:

For the time being, they also print its name "Hajiroboshi" in English on the startup screen:

Romanizations may vary

 

Gjallarhorn's political intervention into the Arbrau central parliament escalated into an armed conflict using mobile suits. The incident was brought to an end by Tekkadan, a group of boys who came from Mars.
News of Tekkadan's exploits has also reached the ears of Wistario Afam, a youth born and raised at the Radonitsa Colony near Venus. Venus, which lost to Mars in the contest for development, is a remote frontier planet in which the four great economic blocs show little interest. It is now used only as a penal colony for criminals, whose inhabitants don't even have IDs.
Then Wistario, who hopes to change the status quo of this homeland, encounters a girl who claims to be the guide to the Urdr-Hunt.

After typically spending several non-continual days on an HG, it's kind of refreshing to have been able to churn this guy out in just one day.

Also, I finally remember what specific piece of media these proportions reminded me of: MS Saga for the PS2 - which I now kind of regret never playing, since based on the playthroughs I found on YouTube I think I might have enjoyed it. :(

 

CSGroup03.jpg

 

The modularity of the SD/CS frame even means that that game's MS customizability is emulated from the get-go! :D

My only gripe about the CS line: I will eventually amass an army of these squat robot skeletons, with not much use for them. :wtf
