I tan nicely! But also have a family history of cancer... so... yeah, pasty for me it is.

@  Otaku : (23 February 2020 - 04:22 PM)

I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 February 2020 - 01:36 PM)

It makes me burn. Accursed daystar.

Blugh, the english dub of BGC is atrocious.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 10:31 PM)

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

Vegan meat needs bacon

@  Paladin : (18 February 2020 - 08:43 PM)

vegan meat must taste delicious. they're grass-fed and regularly exercised....

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 03:59 PM)

Just use the hose.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 03:52 PM)

Ask bing. It'll be a FAR more effective answer.

In spite of a high-profile break with the Transformers franchise and a media storm that followed alleging that she and filmmaker Michael Bay couldn?t get along, Megan Fox is back in Bay?s fold, starring as (probably) April O?Neil in the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reimagining, Ninja Turtles.

Now referring to the film as ?TMNT,? Bay just released a brief statement that simply read, ?TMNT: we are bringing Megan Fox back into the family!?

April O?Neil is starting to make the rounds, most likely on the grounds that she?s the female lead in all of the source material. It?s unlikely Bay will add another without removing April first.

That?s awful friendly, considering that not long ago, Fox compared Bay to Hitler on the set of the Transformers films and called him ?a nightmare to work for.?


I hope and pray this is NOT true.

It's a good thing I'm too sick to flip any tables right now.

Yeah... This is really bad new... Its one thing if she's playing her own character, and its flat. But an established character like April needs to be more brains then looks.

I'm sort of flat lined over this possible news. Megan Fox is eye candy, not sure I'm willing to give her much beyond that. Also, she's probably about the age to play the traditional April role. Oddly, having given the new series a chance, I kind of like the profile of the new April even more. I'm sure this will be Bay's own re-imagining of the character, but whatever. I can't hate it 'til I see it.

If Shia stars as Casey Jones, I quit.

Megan Fox is inoffensive, even entertaining, enough, in a supporting role, but I can't really see her pulling off a character like April O'Neal.

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.

I really hope Nickelodeon doesn't think they need to ditch the CGI TMNT, and come up with something that fits in with Bay's movie (other studios have done similar to good shows, Hasbro got rid of Renegades, for that reason). Especially, if he ends up turning the story into Alien Turtles & ditches the Mutant/Ninja motif of the comics/cartoon.

Frankly, I'd like to see this movie bomb enough that Bay's movie career is done. I can't stand his movies, which are all show & no content.

And yes, I was too lazy to come up with a decent TF related forum name, and just *GASP* used my own.

I don't really get the hatred people have for Megan Fox in particular.

While she is far away from being oscar material, she is not too bad really.

And yeah, she is attractive. And yeah, thats kind of her appeal for producers and directors.

Everybody is on attack/defence, depending on stance, when somebody really attractive makes it in Hollywood, it seems.

Its the "she don't really deserve it" gene most of us have. I am as guilty as everyone, to be fair. icon-hotrod.gif

Oh, and I'm not at all attracted to her.
