Make his fur a red and black flannel pattern

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:10 PM)

Bonus points if you can work in a red and black flannel pattern on his chest plate.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:09 PM)

Might as well make it cliched. Lumberjack moose male and aristocratic deer female.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:16 PM)

Or their aristocratic deer.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:10 PM)

Thinking of making a pair of moose Transformer OCs, male and female. Thier a lovey dovy pair of lumberjacks

i just checked my past tfsource orders, and theres no sales tax charge

@  Arazyr : (18 February 2019 - 11:16 AM)

They haven't (yet, at least) on the stuff I currently have in my Stack. Haven't had them ship anything for a while, though, so I don't know if they will when I do...

@  Benbot : (18 February 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Does TFSource charge sales tax?

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:47 AM)

That's because, once upon a time, the people whom owned the animals weren't the people whom butchered them. So the pig was owned by a saxon who spoke english, but butchered by a french speaker. So a pig got cut up into PORC chops.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 February 2019 - 01:28 AM)

In that case, I don't see anything wrong with English speakers calling it what it is in English. Even though we technically use the French words for what comes out of it. "Beef", "pork"...

@  Bass X0 : (17 February 2019 - 02:04 PM)

I’d like a Siege Thundercracker who has his regular blue colors Cybertronian jet mode which transforms into a robot mode with his Action Master colors. Looks like it could be possible.

@  Paladin : (17 February 2019 - 11:57 AM)

The cow was slaughtered in the abattoir.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 February 2019 - 08:53 AM)

It's not a pretty name: abattoir is literally just the french word for slaughterhouse.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 February 2019 - 08:46 AM)

Giving it a pretty name won't make it a pretty place.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 February 2019 - 02:45 AM)

I do believe there is an aphorism about the U.S.A. and yogurt being different because after 200 years the latter will have a culture.

@  Maruten : (16 February 2019 - 11:30 PM)

There's another word for "abattoir"?! Honestly you people, "slaughterhouse" is a bit on the nose.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 February 2019 - 10:09 PM)

I learned this week that the French-style term abattoir is prevalent in the UK/Commonwealth in place of where U.S.-American Anglophones would say "slaughterhouse". Fascinating.

@  MEDdMI : (16 February 2019 - 08:51 PM)

Nonsense. Everybody loves all my posts.

Oh, that makes more sense.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 February 2019 - 07:31 AM)

Haven't given it to him yet. Not sure when I will, but soon. Wah Wah is what he calls any vehicle with a siren, and the little bugger just LOVES firetrucks. So I got him a rescue bot heatwave.

@  repowers : (16 February 2019 - 02:41 AM)

I hope he said "You've given me a wah-wah"

@  Dekafox : (16 February 2019 - 12:48 AM)

Or you could come to canada, where bureaucracy is a publically funded art form! So garbage and used condoms trying to make a statement about something or other, not entirely sure what.

@  Nevermore : (14 February 2019 - 06:10 AM)

We've turned it into an art form.

@  Nevermore : (14 February 2019 - 06:10 AM)

You think you know bureaucracy, but you've never been to Germany.

@  RichardT1977 : (13 February 2019 - 11:48 PM)

I think a better counterpart would be "society".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (13 February 2019 - 11:24 PM)

Sounds like the cobra effect.

@  Echowarrior : (13 February 2019 - 05:58 PM)

Is Verbesserschlimmerung a change that was intented to make things worse but made them better instead?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 February 2019 - 07:35 AM)

We have a similar word in english "government".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:05 AM)

The meaning of this word is: A change that was intended as an improvement but ended up making things worse.

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

It's a portmanteau of "Verbesserung", which means "improvement", and "Verschlimmerung", which means "worsening".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

Your new German word for today: Verschlimmbesserung.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:17 PM)

Fortunately it's been long enough now that the possibility exists another label like Shout Factory or Arrow could pick it up and give it an updated release.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:16 PM)

It's the same with their Dawn of the Dead blu-ray, and several others

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:11 PM)

In Volcano's case it isn't so much a case just of amazon or eBay sellers... it looks like rather than releasing it directly, Fox licensed it out to Starz/Anchor Bay, and it's subsequently gone out of print

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 February 2019 - 01:28 PM)

There's Amazon sellers for you.

@  Telly : (12 February 2019 - 12:49 PM)

thought about buying volcano on bluray last night, until i saw the price on amazon: $135. the used ones arent much cheaper at $90. i know the 3p sellers can set any price they want, but come on. $90-$135 for a 20 year old movie that was only so-so?

@  unluckiness : (12 February 2019 - 05:12 AM)

GOt my hopes up there for a bit. Last I heard it was nebulously in 2019.

Just watched the latest ep of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, it was a funny ep and a bit sweet as well, seeing Naruto spend time with his daughter instead of being sat in the Hokage office all of the time, obviously a filler ep but it was kind of sweet seeing Naruto's daughter given some spotlight as she rarely gets much time on screen.

It's actually the most recent Utawarumono series, "The False Faces", that Anime Network on Demand has up right now -

 

https://en.wikipedia...s_(2015–2016)

 

I watched the first episode early this morning and caught that. 

 

100% subtitles though; no one dubbed it. It's not the only subbed series they've had (Hidamari Sketch, Den-Oh Coil, and a few others come to mind), but it's possibly the "newest" show they've had up so perhaps there's been no turnaround time for it.

Gridman Anthology arrived.

This really is just an officially licensed doujin tier anthology, to the point that if you remove the jacket you find a two part Unfortunate Akane strip making fun of the cover.

I agree with Japanese fan reviews that for an official release this anthology does nothing to explore unseen hooks in the show. What we instead get is just gags and fanservice like Akane making a kaiju of herself inspired by a kaiju musume figure or Yuta trying on different feminine outfits.

Are there any spinoff anthologies that aren't like that? Only thing I remember from the first PMMM anthology was the teacher asking Kyubey to marry her.

I think it's better for really important canon stuff to stay out of stuff like that, or for a spinoff to 180 something that happened in a series so fresh in everybody's minds. I mean, it's a fun mindless thing. No problem with that.

Next up on Anime On Demand: 

 

"My Love Story!", just in time for Valentine's Day. 

 

There's also some show called "Love Stage" that I've never heard of before now.

My Love Story is so good. I've been itching to rewatch it for a while, but haven't found the time. Maybe I'll squeeze in a few episodes tonight.

Actually, Sentai dubbed it, and got most of the actors from the original dub to reprise their roles.  Now I just hope they make an anime for the third game to finish the story.

 

And yes, My Love Story is quite good.  I just find shoujo manga/anime with male protagonists to be some of the more entertaining ones.

 

Also, Gun Gale Online popped up on Netflix, so I finally got to watch it.  GGO was my favorite game and segment from SAO, so I have been waiting to watch this spinoff for a while.  Only took two days to watch, and that was because I started the first day pretty late. 

I am glad I never read to much up into it (unlike knowing for a while what happens in Alicization), as I loved...

Spoiler

 

As for what I am rewatching bit by bit while I do things like eat or feel like farming in F/GO, that is Soul Eater Not (and likely Soul Eater afterwards).

LOVE STAGE!! is a BL anime about an otaku boy from a family of models who is reunited with the actor boy he was in a commercial with once whilst crossdressing (while in a dress, again). I didn't watch much of it since it was inevitably Very Bad but the character played by DAIGO was really great.

recently finished

 

*Maid-Sama

 

*Hidamari Sketch (not including DVD-only episodes)

 

currently watching

 

*Log Horizon (two episodes a week)

 

*Hidamari Sketch 365 (two episodes a week)

 

*Say I Love You (one episode a week)

 

*Utawarumono: The False Faces (two episodes a week)

 

will start:

 

*My Love Story (I'll have to check)

 

I wish I'd have known about my having Anime On Demand before now. Money's been tight IRL so I've not been able to afford any streaming services; this is going a long way towards me getting caught back up on various shows and titles. 

 

Not all "On Demand" programming I get through my cable provider is free (some items, like certain movies, are still essentially pay-per-view), which is why I was so slow to poke around.

So basically, it's not really worth anyone's time then unless they're specifically into BL? 

 

The cable box in the rear of the house is too old to get the On Demand programming, so I have to wait until everyone else is asleep or out of the house and use the cable box in the living room. That's only about 1 - 2 hours a day, so I've had to pick and choose what I want to catch. 

 

Edit - I actually had to miss out on "School Live" because I just didn't have time in the day to watch it on top of the other shows I was doing at the time. I just have to hope it comes back around again.

Thank you~

 

Re:LOVE STAGE!!, yeah basically all recent BL is like that aside from the Doukyuusei film, which I haven't seen but I've heard good things about it.

 

I remember trying to ignore my parents' confused looks as I powered through Gundam SEED HD Remaster on the big front room TV. It was really awkward.
