Image Comics - Random Topics
I was a naive high school student when Image was formed. I believed all the hype about creators' rights and that editors were holding back these great artists from telling great stories. Then these "rebels" go start their own company and make the dumbest, most unoriginal, over-commercialized crap comics in history. All they've got to show for it after all these years is... Spawn... and The Walking Dead has a TV show. These artists were only good when they had real writers and editors telling them what to do and couldn't handle it on their own. I hate to say it, but comics were better when the characters were corporate owned. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 30, 2011, 6:55 pm

Betty White - Celebrities
These kind of roles may be the only kind of starring roles women of their age are offered. Hollywood has been having elderly characters spew "hip" dialogue for quite a while now. "I'm gonna haul ass to Lollapalooza!" - The Simpsons -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 29, 2011, 2:21 pm

Burger King - Random Topics
I vaguely remember the Who is Herb ads, and then seeing that he had been revealed in a human interest story on the news. I was kind of disappointed that after all the build-up, he just looked like a stereotypical nerd. I don't remember any ads with him in them. My memories of the original Burger King are even vaguer, though I remember him playing basketball once and having a magic ring. They really should bring that guy back. It could be hilarious detailing what a King of Burgers actually does. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 24, 2011, 3:03 pm

G.I. Joe: Sigma 6 - TV Shows
"The series also features General Hawk's son Scott and his robot dog Spud." They should have just gone all out and named the dog T-Bob. The show looked nice, but it was all ruined by lousy 4Kids dubbing. The resulting show was unintelligible. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 12, 2011, 4:20 pm

Lifetime Movie Network (LMN) - Random Topics
Jay Leno once called it the "My Husband Hit Me Network". Since that joke was rather funny, I'll have to assume he stole it. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 12, 2011, 1:23 am

Ludacris - Celebrities
Now young people everywhere spell the word "ludicrous" wrong thanks to this guy, much to my annoyance. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 10, 2011, 1:25 pm

Eddie Murphy - Celebrities
This is another one of those guys that I just don't get. I think he boned the fish before I was old enough to see his movies. Apparently he was really good on Saturday Night Live, but that was during the "lost years" that they never rerun. All I see now is a loudmouth with a huge ego. And unfortunately, I have heard his music, including the Whatzupwitu duet with Wacko Jacko. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 9, 2011, 10:20 pm

That '80s Show - TV Shows
Someone on JTS once made the keen observation that That 70's Show was made by people that loved the 1970s and That 80's Show was made by people that hated the 1980s. I totally agree. Also the characters on That 70s Show felt like real people (at least in the early seasons), whereas That 80's show's characters were just walking, talking '80s cliches. And if you haven't seen it already, check out That 80's Show creator Mark Brazill's epic flamewar with Judd Apatow. Brazill comes off like the scum he is and makes freakin' Judd Apatow look dignified. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 9, 2011, 12:53 pm

Normal, Ohio - TV Shows
My problem with this show is the same I have with Ross's ex-wife on Friends. IIRC, this show was about a formerly married father that has recently come out of the closet. We see that his ex-wife and kids are alternately angry and messed up by it. His actions come off as extremely self-centered to me. It was played as if Goodman just decides he's gay one day and ditches his family. And this is supposed to be a comedy. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 9, 2011, 10:35 am

Have you guys seen the bizarre fight between Stewart and some fat guy at a UK awards show? Patrick tells him, "If you fancy the Jonas Brothers, cover your belly." -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 8, 2011, 11:19 pm

Video Games - Random Topics
After putting some thought into it, I've decided that video games peaked at the 16-bit era. You could finally have colorful and detailed sprites, intricate music, and a sparing amount of digitized speech. Also by that time most games had implemented continues, game saves, and actual game endings. (Most 8-bit games didn't and are frustrating in retrospect because of it.) After that time, games just got too complicated: Every game becoming polygon based 3D, too many buttons and difficult controls, too many talky cinema scenes, etc. And don't even get me started on DLC. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 5, 2011, 9:52 pm

Topher Grace - Celebrities
To be fair to Topher, that probably seemed like the role of a lifetime at the time. That '70s Show had already boned the fish at that point; the writers had started writing Eric Foreman as an annoying geek loser. "Sam Raimi wants ME to play Venom in the next Spider-Man film!?" I can't blame him for jumping at that chance. Kind of like how Ewan MacGregor jumped at the chance to play Obi-Wan. Neither actor was to know the true horror that was to come. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 2, 2011, 11:49 pm

Game of Death - Movie Series
The Japanese edited together all the footage they could find in their G.O.D. project. That version is probably the best treatment this movie will ever get. (The "official" Hollywood version is a joke.) There's been talk for years of trying to complete the film as it was intended, perhaps with CGI or digital face swaps. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 2, 2011, 5:12 pm

PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) - Random Topics
Ugh, here's another one, this one very recent. Dutch scientists "exploring whether decapitation is a humane way to sacrifice lab animals" by chopping off their heads. They're trying to answer the question if a head still lives after decapitation. Do we really NEED to know this? Who cares. This kind of senseless killing is what PeTA should be focusing on. http://blog.seattlepi.com/thebigblog/2011/07/27/how-long-can-you-live-after-your-head-is-chopped-off/ -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 2, 2011, 1:27 pm

Planet of the Apes - Movie Series
I'm not familiar with the book, so I can't comment there. But the original film was cowritten by the Rod Serling, the MASTER of the twist ending. The twist worked because it took what you thought you knew about the film and turned it on its side. It made us understand why Dr. Zaius was being such a bastard-- they had just cause to fear/hate man. Burton's film just ended with a "Huh?" I guess he felt pressure to end with a twist like the original and tacked that nonsense on at the end. The problem with twist endings (as M. Night has learned) is they don't really work when the audience is expecting them to happen. Early reviews at RT for the new film are positive; I hope it really is good. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 2, 2011, 1:37 am
