Y'all kept characterizing the Apes as referring to Tarzan as "whiteboy"...Not "human", but "white boy", as if to say the apes in this story are like blacks in the ghetto...Tsk.

Okay, he was wrong to do it, but Burroughs was definitely using the apes as a metaphor for black people! Hence my saying, for example:

1) that Tarzan "put on a white hood for the occasion" while saving Jane* --

2) -- from Terkoz the Raping Ape (upon which I sarcastically note, "'cause that's what apes do...")

*so he could fuck her himself

I think I actually have that Tarzan issue. I remember as a kid in the 70's not generally liking Gold Key comics. If I remember correctly, they cost more than other comics, even to my young mind the artwork was sloppy and stories didn't make sense.

Howard Stern did a dig at "Greystroke" the movie back in the 80's, "Gaystroke:Lord of the Gay Apes", Jane ended up with Cheetah at the end.

I grew up with Star Trek teaching me it's okay to screw green chicks, women with feathers, so I would do either versions of Zera, just gotta give them a bath with soap and maybe shave down there a bit.

Kate Mulgrew, is horrible, she messed up what would have been a great movie- "Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins."

Remo Williams. Isn't that the movie that dated itself by using the Statue of Liberty during the restoration phase?

Yeah, but that was a cool fight scene on the Statue.

I couldn't agree more that Gold Key and (shudder) Charlton were about as bad as 70s comics could get. Not counting anything written by Bill Mantlo.

There was an episode where a chick had feathers? Not sexy! In fact, how sick is Professor X to have been fucking that Lillandra bitch way back when; what with her distracting, creepy-ass feather head?!

Speaking of unsexy: Kate Mulgrew's fingernails-on-a-chalkboard voice. Don't know a thing about all this "Remo Williams" business, though.

Xantes, Nope, I haven't seen that video; I'll comment once I've watched it, assuming I make it through all...forty-five minutes?!

Okay, just listened to the episode. Master, why do you punish me with four weeks of Trekkie?

Also, what happens when you reach warp 10?


Currently working on a poster for that up-coming podcast of mine.

I think I might be misremembering Kirk with a lady with feathers or it was part of her outfit. But I'm sure there was an orgy scene with Kirk and hundred of small furballs.

That's what was wrong with Remo Williams, you got the martial arts expert, the conspiracy watcher, the gun-ho cop, the defense conspiracy, mystic ninja training, all good points. Then you got Janeway, not knowing her place and playing the attractive, quirky military auditor. Failed.

TCM - Film is lame in some parts but really funny in others. Superheroes from all genre and companies are celebrating an overinflated icon's birthday. They get exposed to a gas and start killing each other. A bit of a lame solution. But it dumps on one of your least liked character.

Courtney - Do you have a Jeannie outfit?

"Why do you punish me with four weeks of Trekkie?"

-Because we can't spank you from a bazillion miles away.

Remo Williams worked for Wilfred Brimley and the Department of Agriuculture! It was an odd movie for sure.

I just listened back to my own episode. I apologize for all the anti mexican propaganda. I'm sticking to what I said about zoo monkeys though. I'm convinced that after the humans go home they pull out their pipes and smoking jackets and read the Atlantic Monthly.

THEN then throw the poo.

Penguins for Trekkie.

I have this to say about gay penguins.

1) All male penguins take care of eggs.

2) We should be smarter than penguins.

3) Just because Penguins appear to have civil rights does that necessarily mean that mean that we should, too? -

They are stinky fish eaters for goodness sake!

I mean, (outside the McDonald's Filet o'Fish) - Fish is to be avoided at all costs.

on the plus side-

Did you see the fine decor of the gay penguins' rock cave?

Nice.

No.
You let the men raise kids, you go extinct. It's that simple.

Men should go out there, read comix, listen to Xavier Cougat and spread the seed.

That's it. We don't know no better.

First, just a heads up not to look for #107 'til next weekend, as PCX takes its usual "skip week" between co-hosts. Which reminds me:

Courtney, I guarantee the next review is 100% Trekkie-free. Also, everyone check out CC's article she just linked to, 'cause it really is outstanding.


XantesFire, The toon had its moments (too bad Batman came back to life, though.) Drunk Venom!

Vichus, Since Starhawk brought up pubic hair, it's amazing that Red Sonja's bush never gets caught in her chain mail bikini bottom.

Trekkie, In the TV show "Dinosaurs", you'll note that Earl Sinclair played little to no part in raising the baby.

Starhawk, #106 is on iTunes! Damn you for making me double check!

I liked it. I was excited and pumping my fists at all the action parts, like Galactus and Darkseid were defeated.

I don't like how they treated Batman, though. That's bogus.

There were some Uber-Nerds who were complaining (in the comments section) about Superman defeating Goku too easily and Hulk using Thor's hammer. I would say people like that should be made sterile, but I don't think it would be neccesary anyway. Aint nobody procreating with idiots like that.

If Storm of all people is "worthy" of Thor's hammer, I just figure that so is everyone else.

Yes, it did get stuck in my head. The only solution was to listen to something else gay men love, Kyle Minogue.
I want her wardrobe.

I seem to have the musical tastes of a gay man anyway. Kyle, Scissor Sisters, George Michael, even a bit of Elton John.

Once I'm done with that I'll go listen to some Gorillaz and Rob Zombie.
I don't understand myself sometimes.

Oh and it's odd that it wasn't until that cartoon that I realised that Venom eating people is technically cannibalism.

Venom eating people is not cannibalism. Venom is an alien. The symbiote has to be the only one digesting all that raw human meat, not the human host.

December 22, 2008 12:48 AM  
Blogger XantesFire said...

The symbiote runs on adrenaline. Meat eaters usually have higher levels of adrenaline than non-meat eaters. So the symbiote is feeding the meat to it's host. Protein to build muscles. Bigger body mass, more adrenaline the body releases.

Deaf schizophrenics' hands sign to them. Ex."My hand is telling me to kill.", signed the crazy deaf girl with her right while her left was signing "kill." Or they see an invisible pair of hands.

Seriously, if Thor is worthy of carrying his hammer, anyone should be.

Does a blind schizophrenic see the invisible hands too?

But doesn't a symbiote needs it's host to digest food for it?
It doesn't have any organs, it seems to just absorb things through it's "skin".

Courtney

Blogger XantesFire said...

Actually no, a symbiote can have it's own digestive system, which the Venom symbiote does have but it only digests adrenaline, not meat. It uses it's host to digest meat.

If you read Marvel Zombies, you would know the symbiote died cause it couldn't get adrenaline from Eddie Brock's undead body, meanwhile there was plenty of meat.

A blind schizophrenic definitely hears voices.

A blind deaf schizophrenic feels Annie Sullivan tapping on their skin in morse code or feels imaginary lips with their hands, like Heller Keller did.

I'm still waiting for them to make a movie portraying the Annie Sullivan/Helen Keller story as the epic lesbian romance we all know it really was.

Hey, in 1939 the Japanese gave Helen Keller a dog named Kamikaze-Go. Incredible that she could be so blind.

December 24, 2008 2:57 PM  
Blogger T Mafia said...

According to Google, the dog died shortly thereafter. No doubt Ms. Keller's other lover, FDR (Helen being a freak who loved gimp sex) felt the Japanese played a cruel joke on her, leading to his setting up the Japs as the fall guys for Pearl Harbor. In short: America's involvement in World War II was all Helen Keller's fault. Bitch.

BTW, since it's already tomorrow where at least one of us is:

Merry CTHULHUmas, everyone!

PCX: The Classics Tour.

No, in the book and comic, Kala's baby had just died, guess they don't show her dragging around her dead baby in that comic.

Apes raising human baby comes from a naive and somewhat racist point of view of evolution. Burroughs appears to believe that humans are a few steps away from apes. And black are in between humans and apes. That's why they look somewhat similar. This is the age where facial and skull traits supposedly revealed your intelligence and bad habits. The beginnings of Science.

He's raised by apes, why would he wear clothes?

In the books, reading and certain behaviors like good and evil are suppose to be part of genetic memory.

People have eaten apes and monkeys, it falls under bush-meat.

But that local native tribe is suppose to be evil and cannibalistic. In a later book some of the remaining tribe members explain they were originally a tribe that lived nearer to white men but left because they had too many rules and wanted the tribe to work for them.

When Tarzan noosed the guy he had an instinctual/heritage feeling not to eat him, even though the law of the jungle is eat what you kill.

He learned how to use the weapons and poisons by watching them earlier.

Not really sexually attracted to the female apes, just good friends.

Tarzan's story begins in 1888 with his parents being stranded on the remote land.

After reading the books I wonder why Hollywood kept Tarzan in the jungle, speaking in simple speak and what was the whole "boy" thing about? They wouldn't let him breed?

You should have done a reading with Courtney as Nancy.

Faster than warp ten you die, reminds me of the belief in the 1800's that if you go faster than 88 miles and the air is sucked out of train cars.

Still want a month or so of Trek, a comic from each series including the animated episode.

Are you saying that black people look like monkeys, or that was Burroughs' opinion?

No wonder why Tim hates you.

I didn't clarify it in this paragraph? Yes, it was Burrough's opinion, made from the science of the day.
