Re: Netflix and Kill Me

I honestly didn't expect Devilman to commit to the original (sort of) ending. If you zoom in on that last scene you can see Shinji strangling Asuka in the background.

Re: Essential Games By Platform

Speaking of groundbreaking EA games for C64/Atari 8bit: Mail Order Monsters was hells of fucking unique back in 1985, and arguably a precursor to monster training/trading games that Pokemon would make so goddamn popular about a decade later. It kind of is to Pokemon what Little Computer People is to...

Re: The Star Trek Thread

Another name that keeps coming up in these notes, particularly in regard to shady fuckery with the scripts: Leonard Maizlish . Gene was a piece of work, but his lawyer was something else entirely. Going through people's desks, sneaking line changes into finished scripts, falling asleep and snoring d...

Re: The Star Trek Thread

Holy hell, you weren't kidding. Gene was a meddlesome fuck and a raging misogynist, so I went straight to the notes on Angel One: An early story meeting about this episode was attended by Patrick Barry, Gene Roddenberry, and Herbert J. Wright. Wright was wary that the concept of a matriarchal societ...

Re: Essential Games By Platform

Aw heck, I always have to throw in MULE. It was originally for Atari 400 or 800 or whatever, and maybe my bias is showing, but I liked it best on the Commodore. There was an NES version, but the sound was flat and the graphics were more of a sidegrade than an improvement and I kind of hate it. AFAI...

Re: A Magical Gathering

"how girl fite?" is so disgustingly common in real life it's actually absurd, like all these men think that women can't fucking pull triggers with their weak little arms or some shit. Ignoring the fact, of course, that the most badass pirate of all fucking time was female. I was so sure t...

Re: DIRTY SANTA 2017: YOU MADE IT

Aw hell, I missed this. Anyway, it won't be a surprise, but is anyone way into Judge Dredd? Because I've got a whole damn box of 2000ADs from the 90s I was hoping might find a good home.

Re: Fun Facts

So, like, Farsi? I don't even know, other than that the grammar is comparatively easy but the pronunciation is a pain in the dick without example. Come on over and whisper your mother's name into my ear or something because that's the only way I'm going to get it.

Re: In the Land of Wonderful Dreams

Not exactly a dream, but all the closet lights are on again and we never use those normally. Last time that happened I was sleepwalking and having a minecraft dream, all placing light sources to get rid of spawns in the house. I don't remember anything this time, though, and I don't want to set up a...

For serious, coconut crabs are rad. They're probably terrible pets, though. I kind of want one just to put a little fear into the cats.

Re: Rooty-tooty point and shootys

Is it okay if I like owning and shooting guns but also think that most people, including me, probably shouldn't have them? Because I am willing to give up midnight blacklight scorpion plinking if it means a bunch of people won't get shot all the time.

Okay, giving the first (third) episode a go and hell if I can't keep thinking that Michael Ruins Everything (i.e. the last two episodes) might have worked better if they were delivered in flashbacks. You know, after we somehow established her as at least a competent or likable person. Which... this ...

"If we kill him he'll become a martyr." She kills him. He becomes a martyr. I'm only up through the second episode but this two part pilot feels pretty self contained to me. So after sparking an interstellar war, assaulting her commanding officer and mentor in an attempted mutiny, ensu...

Re: Pros and Cons of Punching a Nazi Just Square in the Dick

Punching a Nazi is ethically defensible, but punching a Nazi that threw a banana at you and called you an ape is legally defensible. Not talking to a cop about it is basically the only thing he did that wasn't a massive fuckup.
