Oh man, Seattle arrested Phoenix Jones, its very own super hero. One of the local rags even exposed his his secret identity. Not cool, guys. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on October 10, 2011, 10:41 pm

That "dream season" must've been a tough sell on DVD. I wonder how many people bought it? -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on October 9, 2011, 1:17 pm

Simpsons, The - TV Shows
The article I read said they're making 8 million a year and would get a pay cut to 4 mil. Not sure where they're getting these numbers from. Anyways, it's hard to feel sorry for all parties involved. Greed has kept this show going way past its prime and it would be ironic if greed ended up killing the show. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on October 5, 2011, 1:32 am

I get those types too, plus these: 1) The Overly-Proud Parent - _Everything_ their kids do (including the scatological) is just so precious and cute and has to be shared with the world. 2) The Sad Sack - Everything about their life sucks and they have to post every negative thing the world throws at them. They desperately need your pity and often hint that financial aid wouldn't hurt either. 3) The Overly-Religious - The name of Jesus Christ needs to be invoked in nearly every post. If they have a good day, Jesus needs to be thanked online. If things are going bad (even slightly), they ask for prayers. Some people I know show two or even all three of these traits. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on October 3, 2011, 8:15 pm

A few months ago I went in when they had some sandwich (roast beef, I think) on sale. Being vegetarian, I asked them to hold the meat. They refused. They said that would make it a "Veggie" and they would charge me full price if they did so. What kind of morons charge extra for withholding toppings? I walked out. My friends and family have had similar experiences there. No wonder the franchise is doing so poorly. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on October 1, 2011, 2:22 pm

G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero (1985) - TV Shows
I've been marathoning G.I. Joe recently and thought I should leave my impressions of it. I know many fans dislike the second season due to Serpentor and Sgt. Slaughter. But there were some great new characters (like Hawk finally making his animated debut) and episodes (Sink the Montana). Even Serpentor got a great origin story (made from DNA of history's greatest tyrants). I wonder if Serpentor would have been received more warmly if he didn't have such a ridiculous costume and name that seemed like a He-Man reject. I think I'd have to agree with Dr. Sarcastor that The Movie was probably the boning point. The show was already straining credibility and that Cobra-La crap was just too much. Cobra Commander's ridiculous origin from The Movie of being a mutated nobleman-scientist of an ancient race of lizard-men from the Himalayas made his comic book origin of being a disgruntled used-car salesman look believable. The less said about the post-Movie episodes done by DiC, the better. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on October 1, 2011, 2:32 am

Barbara Streisand - Celebrities
Weird vintage underground video going around of Babs in a dominatrix outfit whipping Indiana Jones and saying she "feels like a faggot". Guest appearances by Carrie Fisher and Irvin Kershner. George Lucas is having these vids taken down, so watch them while you can. http://origin.avclub.com/articles/watch-barbra-streisand-whip-indiana-jones,61465/ -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 10, 2011, 2:22 am

Star Wars - Movie Series
What they did to Ben's "Krayt Dragon" call bugged me worse. They've got this new young sound guy that apparently put his own voice into all six films, including that scene. It is a little weird that this "NO" is some people's breaking point. Greedo Shoots First, Hayden Christensen in Return of the Jedi-- these things were much worse. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 2, 2011, 2:40 pm

Star Wars - Movie Series
So yeah, George is adding Vader screaming "NOOOOOO!!!" to the upcoming Return of the Jedi Blu-ray. Because so many people liked that in Revenge of the Sith. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 1, 2011, 8:16 pm

Image Comics - Random Topics
Don't get me wrong, I'm not condemning all indie comics. My favorite comic book ever, Usagi Yojimbo, is independent and all done pretty much entirely by one guy since the mid 1980s. But the Image guys (with the Savage Dragon guy being the obvious exception) are all lazy hacks with no artistic integrity that couldn't cut it on their own. I loved that article by the way and would love to see an update to it. I've heard they're not the No. 3 comic publisher anymore. I think when it comes to the superhero books, the corporate-owned format works best. All those classic superhero crossovers and superhero teams like the Justice League and The Avengers could never have happened under the creator-owned rules. You'd have to get permission from each character's creator and pay them something each time a character appears. You wouldn't be able to afford to use the whole team! -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 1, 2011, 5:54 pm

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
