XantesFire can't comment today. He has a doctor's appointment.

Damn. After all, if Kotter never questioned the notes from "Epstein's Mother" (giving the camera an exasperated look doesn't count!), I guess I can't either...

Loni Anderson was a scary bitch. She looked like an evil doll came to life. So plastic.

Horshack's problem was he was addicted to tv and movies.

Terry Moore. Gay.

Thank you Epstein's mom.

Well, as far as Loni Anderson goes, we did learn in that one Twilight Zone episode that mannequins do occasionally pose as humans and live among us...

Horshack might be addicted to TV and movies, but so are like 99% of Americans, and they're all perfectly...oh. Well then, I guess that does explain everything.

I'm not even gonna try to defend Terry Moore anymore now that I've been subjected to Echo. I mean, just the fact that the first thing he does with the chick is make sure that her tits are permanently hidden from view...!

I thought I was the only one who thought Terry Moore sucked...dick.

But I do see that we agree that the fudgepacker can draw.

I don't know, wasn't he drawing everyone with hulk hands in Runaways?

Tim: If you, Xantes and me all somehow agree on something, then it must be true.

Xantes: You're probably thinking of that "fake manga" guy Humberto Ramos who Marvel let draw Terry Moore's first Runaways arc (V3 #1-6) because they hate us so much. Fuckers. First, they inflict Moore's writing on us, then they let a guy who only does super-cartoony faces draw it?!

Oops, my mistake then, I thought Moore was trying something new. I hate the fake manga of Huberto Ramos, it got so tiring on Impulse. Plus a lot of time his story direction just jumps and you can't figure out what's going on.

Well too bad Moore wasn't drawing Runaway, I now sort of figure if he was drawing it atleast he could give us sluttier looking little girls.

Here I thought it was just me! Ramos' fight scenes, both here and in what I saw of his work in the X-books, are just a confusing mess.

As far as sluttier-looking little girls, I'll repeat my praise for Takeshi Miyazawa for giving ten-year-old Klara a pair of at least B-cup hot, underage titties.

To get off of the topic of Trenchcoat's obvious adoration of all things Terry Moore and Humberto Ramos (I second the confusion of his action scenes and his style), I wanted to know if Trenchcoat heard that his namesake turns out to be a [yet another] lie of the news media.

So they are still loyal followers of zombie Hitler, but there was no Trenchcoat Mafia and they weren't exactly the picked-on nerds that they were depicted as.

TCM or PCX knows all of that. He probably picked the moniker T-Mafia because it was A) offensive to squares who believe everything they see in the news and hear from other squares and B) it's an exaggerated urban legend made into boogeyman myth.

It's old news that Dylan and Klebold weren't part of the Trenchcoat Mafia.

Arrgh. Even though everyone seems to have gotten what I meant, when I said "here" in my last comment, I of course meant the first arc of Runaways V3.

Vichus, Tim's right. I figure if there's any loser out there who'd actually be offended by the nick "Trenchcoat Mafia" in the first place, well, they're exactly the kind of dumbass who'd be much happier listening to some other show.

Funny thing happened on my way to work the day after or two days later, I wasn't paying attention. I was getting on a bus and an old lady getting off said, "You should be ashamed of yourself."

I automatically looked down and checked my zipper. Old lady was gone, so I just paid my fare and moved to the back. When I sat down this cute light brown haired russian girl with a "Hello Kitty" bookbag, moved next to me and asked if I was an anarchist. I told her I was a socially responsible anarchist and we got to talking about a bunch of weird stuff.

When we got to her stop she wrote down her number and told me to call her tomorrow to hang out. Okay, I said.

When I got to work my co-workers ragged me for wearing my black trenchcoat. I had no idea what they were talking about, so they told me about Columbine and the Trenchcoat Mafia. "Meh," I said.

I wore my trenchcoat that year everyday except for the really hot days. Starring people down and just acting twitchy. I dated the girl for a couple of months, she admitted she had started talking to me cause she thought I was wearing my trench in solidarity of the trenchcoat mafia. I thought they were losers cause they only killed 12, wounded 23 and had no escape plan.

Didn't Eric and Dylan kill themselves? (I don't remember, so don't laugh at me- to much) If they did kill themselves, I would say that's some sort of escape plan. No one can arrest you when you're on a boat to Hades.

That's a loser's plan. They should have escaped and became serial school killers. Killing yourself after a massacre just means you have no idea what to do after. And that you're scared to face up to the consequences.

"No one can arrest you when you're on a boat to Hades."

With the possible exception of Judge Dredd. I think if he was after them, their being dead and all might just be a minor inconvenience to him.

"They should have escaped and became serial school killers."

DC/Vertigo, please take Xantes' premise and make it into a series. I need a new book to read that glorifies amoral murderers now that 100 Bullets is over, anyway.

Sure they can, Just use google.

!00 is over? Guess I can buy all the gns now without the wait. Vertigo's gone soft. It needs more violence and immorality like "Kill your Boyfriend."

Couldn't agree more. I know Courtney had a lukewarm reaction to KYB, which kinda surprised me until I realized the events in that comic are probably just a typical day to her.

You mean she has a brother she doesn't know about out there?

Hey, I always assumed if you went back far enough that everybody on that side of the world is related to each other.

I'm definitely down for a Dylan & Eric style series. It could be like Supernatural, but only Eric and Dylan's targets aren't really prepared to fight back.

That's where artistic license comes in. I mean, if Zack Snyder can take the one page where Ozymandias kills the Comedian and turn it into a five-minute fight scene in the movie...

PCX: The Classics Tour.

Morally wrong to what principal? To who? Age of consent laws are the governments lazy way of saying who can fuck, who's ready to fuck. Does that mean they are right?

Why is it okay by law for a girl to screw a 60 year old guy on her 18th birthday but not the day before? But the day before it was okay to have sex with a guy who's only a year older than her. Do years have magical legal properties?

Define morals.

Are morals absolute?

Tiaras and Toddlers has shown us that its okay for cute little things to play dress up.

Jennifer Connolly is still hot. I wanna abuse and use her.

I think Kotter had a dream once where the principal was the devil....W T H !! William Shatner and John Travolta in a Satanic cult movie?!

Julie was hairy hot librarian, same as WKRP's Bailey.

Lonny Andersen just seemed like a manikin. Too plastic.

Arnold Horshack was autistic way ahead of his time. He knew all the movie n TV trivia but school stuff bored him.

Have you no sense? It would be beneficial if you bought Welcome Back Kotter comics in the quarter bin cause they sell for around 10 and up.

Dylan and Eric find themselves in Hell and in front of them is the devil and an angel. The devil has a problem, many young bad people have escaped because they found a physical loophole in hell. The loophole is the escaped souls can leave hell but they have to attend high school. The angel is there to show how serious and honest the bargain is. They are to catch and re-kill those escaped souls. If successful, their sins will be forgiven and they will enter heaven, but because of the loophole the escaped souls have to be killed on school ground. If killed by either Dylan or Eric off school property, the souls escape to heaven and the devil revokes their license. So they roam the Earth schools dressed in black trench-coats carrying around mystical machine-guns and shotguns to reclaim those souls. 21 Hell Street
