Re: TV Series On The Television

Lucifer has also been cancelled. I'm okay with it ending where it did, but there's a campaign to bring it back.

Maybe CW will take it. They could use another show based on a DC comic; they only have six.

Re: Let's all go to the movies~

A new Alamo Drafthouse just opened in Tempe. (Or, officially, the grand opening is next Thursday. But they're running a training week right now, with discounts on food while the staff learns the ropes.) I got to drink two beers and eat a chicken sandwich with motherfucking brie on it while I watched...

So I wonder if Deadpool 2 means that my signed copy of the first appearance of Zeitgeist is worth a lot of money now.

Re: Let's all go to the movies~

I, Tonya is great, part white-trash Greek tragedy and part character-based absurdist comedy. The material is great (and sometimes postmodern; it tells us upfront that this story is being told by unreliable narrators, and occasionally reminds us by having the characters directly address the camera an...

Re: General Old Game Hardware Thread

I dunno if anybody else but me has an SD2SNES, but somebody's gone and gotten SuperFX/SuperFX2 support to (mostly) work. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZKMwZ3rV1c Also, it looks like the Joyzz wireless Genesis controller I linked in the previous post is now available for purchase.

Re: Comics for People who Don't Read Comics

The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck (collected in The Don Rosa Library volumes 4 and 5) is every bit the stone-cold classic its reputation suggests. If there's one caveat, it's this: while the series stands on its own, you'll get a lot more out of it if you've read the original Barks stories that i...

Re: Copyrights, Trademarks, Patents, and branding irons

Bunnie Huang is crowdfunding a video device designed to modify video signals before output. He's creating it, in part, to help establish standing for his lawsuit against the US government over the DMCA's anti-circumvention clause. As you presumably all know by now, the DMCA makes it illegal to circu...

Re: Weird Al

I didn't catch the Mandatory Fun tour, but I've seen him quite a few times over the years; I know what you mean about backing videos (in his polka medleys, in particular, he'll usually have sped-up versions of the music videos from the songs he's parodying synced up with his singing them). While his...

Fridge Logic on the ending of Rebels: Okay so Hera's definitely been pregnant for the last ten episodes . That was awfully nice of Sabine to look after Lothal from its liberation to sometime after the end of Return of the Jedi, but...like, couldn't her family have used her help? I know she ...

Re: Weird Al

Right (well, aside from the meticulously-synced-to-light-show part; they're still doing that); Al told the Rolling Stone last year: How did you get the idea for this tour? It was sort of an epiphany near the very end of the last tour. I think I was in the middle of putting on my "Fat" suit...

Re: Star Wars

Finally got around to finishing up Rebels. A deeply satisfying end to a deeply satisfying series. It's funny to think back to how hokey and uneven the first half of the first season was, because once it started to click, it got everything right. Stuff like this is why people love Star Wars. Onward a...

Re: TV Series On The Television

Well, whatever way you come at it, every time this show sets a storyline in the present it always sucks. Basically just turns this show into a crappy CSI episode. I think "JFK in the present" is a legit good hook (which explains why they didn't just scrap the whole thing in my hypothetica...

Re: TV Series On The Television

Was the intonation "Who's that?" as in "I don't know who this person is" or "Who's that?" as in "Why is there a person here who's not supposed to be here?" I don't know the show. That could have been the intent, but it's immediately followed by Lucy coming in...

Re: Weird Al

The setlist at the show I saw was almost entirely different from Niku's. I will try to post more later, but I need to get to bed. Suffice it to say, if this really is the only time Al ever does a tour like this, then I'm glad I got the chance to see it. But I hope it's not. It sure seems like, all s...
