Unlike many of his peers, Morton diesn't seem to have gone out of his way to try and take every drug going so he's aged remarkably well.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:39 AM)

Doesn't seem to have been a market for it, which is too bad, because it perfectly does what it sets out to do.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Just opened it and suddenly I'm 9 years old again.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Bought myself Fansproject Glacialord for my birthday during their Black Friday sale.

@  Nevermore : (12 December 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 December 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Depends entirely on how badly you cooked them. What?

Cheddar can do just about anything.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

With my mouth, usually.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 08:48 AM)

Depends on how you're eating it.

Not Don, thanks. I'd like a writer who actually cares enough to do the job properly

What's your favorite cheese? I'm not sure, but it's hard to beat muenster.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:10 PM)

Man I wish IDW could do a season 2.5 with a few writers like Michael Charles Hill or Donald F Glut or Paul Davids involved.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 04:33 PM)

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:05 AM)

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2019 - 03:48 AM)

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 December 2019 - 04:39 PM)

Still better than American jobs. x.x;

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:54 PM)

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

Well, yeah. But as usual lately, it'll be a Barry Allen that borrows every single personality trait from Wally West.

I'll only watch this if they cast either Neil Patrick Harris or Jensen Ackles as Barry.

Despite being rasied on Wally I'm enjoying the current Manapul/Buccelato more than I have any other Flash run in the last twenty years so I'm fine with them using Barry. I think it's really hard to make speed look convincing in live action though, so I'm not confident that the special effects will be very charismatic. The odd brief burst of speed here and there in Smallville was okay, but I wouldn't want to see a whole show built around that model. I hope they do something interesting and watchable with it.

Entertainment Weekly says that one of the kids from Glee is your new Barry Allen.

QUOTE
Grant Gustin, whom you might recognize as Glee?s Sebastian, has officially been cast as Barry Allen (aka The Flash) in The CW?s hit show Arrow. Gustin will appear in episodes 208, 209, and 220.

Barry Allen is described as ?a Central City assistant police forensic investigator who arrives in Starling to look into a series of unexplained robberies that may have a connection to a tragedy in his past. A comic book fan boy, Barry is obsessed with the Arrow unaware that working with Oliver and Felicity to solve the crime has brought him right into the dangerous world of the vigilante,? according to a press release.


I've never seen Glee so I can't comment on the kid's acting chops, but there you go.

I'm not sure you'd be able to say much, Sebastian was a pretty minor character, anyway. He was in, what, three episodes, total?

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.

Well, the same could be said about Jane Lynch as Sue Sylvester, but I feel I've seen enough of her in Glee to have a certain perspective on her abilities as an actor.

I wrote 'probably'. The cliffhanger last season showed angels falling like comets but it wasn't shown for Castiel. I haven't seen the preview trailer either so its just speculation that he's human too (unless Metatron did something else for him). I HOPE he's still angelic. Being human and nuts would be awful for him.

Arrow's Flash can fight non super powered folks. The Rogues are paraphernalia based non metas (well, depending on which Weather Wizard)

Hmm, I'm curious about that. Maybe I'll look it up. I have no idea who the nu52 Rogues are so could be worth a look (is Kid Trickster Axel part of the team?). Weather Wizard internalized his powers before and Mirror Master has too abstract ish abilities to be limited by a gun but Cold, Heatwave and Boomerang all rely on hand held weapons. The latter three can just be street level bad guys.

Hmm, I'm curious about that. Maybe I'll look it up. I have no idea who the nu52 Rogues are so could be worth a look (is Kid Trickster Axel part of the team?). Weather Wizard internalized his powers before and Mirror Master has too abstract ish abilities to be limited by a gun but Cold, Heatwave and Boomerang all rely on hand held weapons. The latter three can just be street level bad guys.


Kid Trickster, Captain Cold, Glider (His Sister), Mirror Master, Heatwave, and Weather Wizard are the current Rogues lineup. Trickster is still mostly a gadgeteer, but has a cybernetic arm now (got it a few issues ago after a bad encounter with one of Grodd's apes), Cold can generate beams of ice, Glider is sorta of mental projection while her body is in a coma, Mirror Master is trapped in reflective surfaces which leads to his mirror realm that serves as the Rogue's hideout, Heatwave looks a bit like a Steampunk Cyborg. Weather Wizard is pretty much a male version of Storm. Boomerang was part of Suicide Squad, and was still weapon based with pretty much the same look. I don't know if new character Turbine has joined them or not, but was last seen with them. They're all still pretty much street-level criminals with the same rules and morals and occasional anti-hero leanings (They helped save people during the Gorilla warfare arc, and look to be opposing the Crime Syndicate during Forever Evil). So they've not really changed much beyond how they use their powers.

I rather like how its all handed, they've not quite gotten used to having powers rather then weapons/gadgets, as its 'recent' (not long before the start of series, I don't think they've had them for much longer then a year and half comic time) so its not like they are really overpowered or anything; as Flash alone has still been able to handle them. and since it all Cold's idea; it puts him at occasional odds with the rest of the team as not everyone if fond of the end results which I think is a nice reflection of general fan's mixed reactions.

Semi-related: Flash #19 is a pretty fun issue, in which Barry temporarily looses his powers to Dial H, and ends up using the Rogues old weapons to save people till his powers return near the end of the issue.

Also this week we got Flash 23.3 which is the Rogues one-shot.

EDIT: Fixed a mistake I made about one of the characters.
