Oh, the turnover rates are high here as well.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Amazon.com and .ca, on the other hand, can be pretty terrible. I know from your squawkbox posts that you guys have your issues with Amazon over there, although you're lucky to have stronger government regulations and a union there. I gather the warehouse workers in the USA and Canada have it pretty crappy, with very high turnover, close to minimum wage pay, and no unions

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:38 PM)

Amazon.de doesn't really have the same issue. I've ordered from them (and UK, FR, IT and JP) several times, and their packaging is much better

@  Nevermore : (17 October 2019 - 05:22 PM)

I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

he landed by coincidence in front of long-term residents.

@  Sabrblade : (14 October 2019 - 09:55 AM)

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

The heavy-set individual appears to be Paul Schrier. 

 

As far as the others go, I didn't keep up with the series during the Disney years, and so I have no idea who half of these people are.

There was some buzz about a Voltron movie way back around the time Transformers was building momentum.  By, according to Wikipedia anyway, legal issues came up between World Event Productions and Toei (the creators of the anime Voltron was based on), which caused 20th Century Fox to back out, before another round of disputes between who owned the film rights between multiple producers.

 

Ultimately, WEP licensed Voltron to Classic Media, who was in turn purchased by Dreamworks Animation who initially pursued Voltron as an animated feature.  That ultimately evolved into the current animated series on Netflix.

My spider-sense is telling me that this looks like Michael Scott's "Threat Level Midnight", except with Power Ranger actors...

 

And Bill Hader has just been announced as the movie Alpha 5.  Works for me.

They are.. But each of the posters have refference to a car or driving in there.

 

 And of course I mean... "EVERYONE!" has to know about what happened to her... I MEAN IT MADE NATIONAL NEWS! EVERYONE MUST KNOW ABOUT THE YELLOW RANGER! (side note.. it didn't actually make national news.. and reality is almost no one fricken knows the Yellow Ranger died in a car accident outside of the Ranger community.)

 

So OBVIOUSLY, everything has to be an attack on her! I mean.. HOW DARE THEY..

 

 

This is almost as fricken bad as something I posted about in P&R.

Saying something is awkward doesn't require knowledge. If I beamed at someone "So how's your mum?" and they responded "...She died 2 weeks ago" that would be awkward.

It's a movie banking on MMPR nostalgia and the specific call out for a character whose actress died in a car accident is about needing driving lessons. I'm not sure where this idea I'm calling it a planned attack comes from.

So I'm watching today's episode of Dino Super Charge....how much do these guys get per episode? And how many of these actors really move on to do other things? Seems like a lot I look up haven't done much since. I think the one I've found with the most success is Rose McGiver. She was a yellow ranger in a series and now the star of izombie.

I know Ziggy and Doctor K still do TV (and got Married).

 

Johnny Young Boche (Adam) is a very popular Voice Actor.

 

Amy Joe Johnson (Kimberly) has gone on to do other projects including a show I believe called SWAT

 

I'm sure other still do some TV and Movies, but I believe like Johnny, most when into Voice Acting.

AJJ's show is called "Flashpoint". It's about a Canadian crisis response team, which operates in a fashion similar to an American SWAT team. 

 

Ion Television has been re-running the episodes here in the US if anyone is interested in seeing them. 

 

Also of note is that AJJ released an album some years ago. Unfortunately, whoever mixed it botched the job.
