Soon we will have the tech to destroy all gods, Yeah I'm talking to you, Jehovah.

Dumb mashed up words are the way of the future and present and past. Humans always been mashing up words, fireman, postman, frenemy, ladyboy, etc.

I'm so surprise Courtney as an Australians as in a colony of prison people isn't more receptive to lesbians. I wonder if it's denial.

14b, if only that was in American measurement.

Atleast in Playboy and Penthouse they do show nudity. Here it's just implied but never do and they could have.


Vixen probably won't be around after she hears this episode.

Over a hundred and noone looks at you? See Thoom and Bea Arthur.

Wait a sec if Courtney is an xenophile shouldn't she be dressing as an anime character to attract aliens? They sure love them Japanese cos-girls.

How to.

Now I want there to be gods, just so I can go around killing them with cool tech like a "god gun".

I wouldn't bring up ladyboys; Vichus might post another shemale link.

You're forgetting the violent criminal behavior that comes so naturally to Australians; any Aussie chick that ever admits to a lesbian act is swiftly and quietly "dealt with".

If "14B" was consistent with how we measure breast size here in the states though, wouldn't such breasts have to be inverted or something?

There really isn't a good reason these books shouldn't be full of nips and bush, since the parental advisory issue doesn't even usually come into play with comics put out in a "real book with a spine" format.

"Pedo-osity": relating to the pedolicious. Look, if Tim can make up words, so can I!

Vixen is a woman, and therefore will do what she's told.

Good point about Bea Arthur, given that she's decaying in the ground with maggots eating her and Tim thinks she's hotter than ever.

Can't you just see Courtney (un)dressed as, say, Lum? If we can just convince her that aliens are into anime cosplay girls...

And I guess if the less sensible chicks out there really want their titties sliced open just to have bags full of chemicals shoved inside, more power to them. Freaks. Oh also, these bitches are crazy - from Wikipedia: "Women who undergo breast implantation are more likely to have undergone psychotherapy, have low levels of self-esteem, and have higher prevalences of depression, suicide attempts, and mental illness compared to the general population." Big surprise, huh?

No, a 14b would probably fit in your hands. It would be a baby with breast the size of small oranges.

"'low levels of self-esteem, and have higher prevalences of depression, suicide attempts, and mental illness compared to the general population.' Big surprise, huh?" Isn't that just women?

I was thinking catgirls and sailor scouts but I like the idea of Lum's tiger print bikini. I would think Courtney would like anime just for their elaborate outfits.

Trenchcoat, were you speaking ill of Venture Bros? First off, the most recent episode had me fucking chuckling my balls off.

Secondly, they used THE voice of Batman to portray a Superman/Sentry type superhero as a reckless pedophile. That's fucking brilliance.

In fact, like every other episode is dealing with pedophile humor. You're not getting that on network TV.

I just looked up bra sizes in America and I'm still a 'B'.
The 14 relates to the band size.
But in US sizes I am a 16B.
How did you think bra sizes worked?


I don't like anime costumes, they are ugly, over-the-top and unrealistic. I have been commisioned to make a few and it's always been such a challenge to convert these 2 dimensional designs into reality.

Most women do have low self-esteem for some reason. There's no inbetween though, if you don't hate yourself, you love yourself, alot.

Can't wait for Venture Bros season 4 on DVD. It's the only way Australia gets to watch it.

You're SO right, Courtney! I mean ALL costumes based on anime characters are over the top and ridiculous!

Yeah, what we need to do is not dress like those silly Japanese do and wear something more realistic.

Or maybe something that you love that is perfect for this planet.

You probably just made Courtney's day with that last photo. And old-school nurse uniforms were sexy as fuck (as they sent the message that these little sluts are so submissive, they'll do whatever sick shit you want; also, they can give you pills for whatever diseases you might catch from them. Whores.) I think I was reading Steam Detectives for the nurse chick for years before I realized the comic actually sucked. Honorable mention: Nova from Star Blazers, who had the nerve to be a hot nurse in a skintight uniform on a sci-fi cartoon while I was a geek going through puberty.

Now, to address the most important matter of discussion here, which is to say, Courtney's boobies:

So there we go. In civilization (America), she's a perfectly hot 36B. In fact, notice that here in the (understandably) titty-obsessed US, we don't even acknowledge there could be a way to measure bra size and get a result any smaller than 30A. I'm tempted to ask, "How did she think bra sizes worked?", but I pretty much save those kind of "getbacks" for Tim.

And Courtney, you just hate everything anime-related. There's like a kajillion cool anime character/costume designs out there; the "problem" is none of the costumes were created with the idea that real people would ever actually wear them.

Most women should have low self-esteem, since they're giving up trying to look like anything at younger and younger ages. How many hot chicks besides yourself do you even see at your comic conventions, for example?

Oh, and you can apparently get the first three episodes of Venture Bros. season 4 via the usual online pirate source(s).

Speaking of which, Vichus, I'll probably watch the new season eventually; but season 3 was kinda weak compared to the first two, so, well, I'll get around to it, anyway. I mean, I can't not watch the new stuff at all, since you just informed me there's pedo humor to look forward to.

Which reminds me; Xantes, you just made me realize Courtney would make a pedo-tastic Sailor Saturn (because of course she'd be the occasionally evil one), but between her hating all things anime and the fact there's no way she's showing that much leg, we're all better off just hoping for one of your inspired photoshop jobs.

No, that's not just an old school nurse. That's a POKEMON nurse!

I will never speak ill of the Venture Bros; what I can say that I enjoyed season 2 of Venture Bros tremendously, and of course season 1. Also, Season 4.

I think that Season 3 added a lot more backstory to all the characters, and, as always, the season was extremely quotable. I will also admit that I prefer other characters over others (Sergeant Hatred).

And Threnchcoat, let's face it, Courtney is totally right because fiction originating from, I don't know Australia inspires totally sensible and functional cosplay while Japan does not.

I'm not referring to really complicated outfits. More like, since he brought it up, Lum , Sailor scouts and Catgirls.

I think that the best cosplay compromise for Courtney, in celebration of her tithood is Yoko of one of the most fun, action-packed, awesome shows of the past decade.

Don't worry: this Yoko doesn't sing, but you could say she broke up the band.

Vichus, Yeah, shame on me for not recognizing anything from Pokemon; then again, this way I can claim to never have watched it. Though in my defense, if they didn't want me to watch it, they'd never have given that little twelve-year-old redhead her distractingly budding titties.

Anything like Venture Bros. season three would've been the best season of most other cartoons, but VB really set a high standard for itself to live up to with the show's first two seasons.

Judging from your first two photos, I learned two things: Australians are a lot creepier than we realize and amazingly, some chicks can actually look hot with (well, in her case, almost) purple hair even if they're not on UFO or something.

Xantes, I'd actually forgotten that one; not that I'd think Courtney would necessarily be the most "goody-goody" of the Scouts, anyway (in fact, despite her disguise in your picture, notice that Tuxedo Mask sees her true nature as a naughty little girl and knows that she needs/craves to be properly spanked!) - and at least I didn't compare her to either of the lesbians on the team, either!

Vichus, it's obvious at this point that anime producers are just putting cartoon broads in these skimpy costumes just so real girls will mimic them. To which I'd just like to say, "Keep it up, guys!"

No way I'm showing that much leg?
Did you see my Starfleet uniform? I tend to show more leg than chest, mostly because there really isn't that much there.

To see what the other girls at Supanova were like just browse through here a bit:

Replace the '%20's with spaces.

Vichus, I'm going to assume you have never touched a sewing machine in your life. But I have and I know as a general rule, most anime costumes are not made for the human form. Most of them are garish and unflattering.
Even Nurse Joy, it is more simple, but look at that offensive colour scheme.
I've never been much of a fan of Klingons, but those are nicely made costumes.

Oh and there was a Yoko girl at Supanova. Stormtrooper helmets were fogging up.

I would never download Venture Brothers. The creators deserve more than that.
And it's sort of a tradition between Jesse and I that we have a sleepover/marathon whenever the latest season is released on DVD.

Hmm, Sailor Saturn does resemble me a little.
But my favourite was always Sailor Mars when I was a kid. Mostly because I have some strange connection to that planet.

I don't hate anime, I grew up with it. But as I got older I realised how stupid and cheesy it was.
Now days I have watched more sophisticated animes, Spirited Away, Ghost in the Shell (what was up with the ending?) and Steamboy.
I have friends who really like it.
But it's just not my thing.
Just like I bet no one here is a fan of romantic comedies.
That's how I feel about anime.

Wait a sec! All this time I thought your avatar was a smiling Doc Ock, it's Gendo?

Disney Scouts. Now that Pluto isn't a planet, what happens to Sailor Pluto?

In refer to the Supernova pix. It looks like Darth Vader has custody of the kid this weekend.

2nd set What are those girls suppose to be, baby mugatos from STOS- A Private Little War?

Romantic comedies aren't all bad, I usually end up watching any with Cary Grant and/or Audrey Hepburn.

Unfortunately we only get exposed to a small selection of anime and manga. And even worse, what we do get at times is so homogenized because the TV people always go with the theory "This sold once, let's repackage it sell it again" Like with Pokemon, YugiOh, Bakugan, Card Captor Sukura, Digimon, all basically kids using battle animals. Then there's "let's alter and censor it for the US" See Power Rangers, Gatchaman.

By the way, of Pokemon, did you ever see the "Children running naked into the field for a festival" episode they banned in the US?

You compared anime to romantic comedies? You really should be horsewhipped for that. I am older than you, what the hell do you think I'm watching, harem comedies? If you weren't so busy slashing pedestrians in your symbiote, maybe you could better appreciate some "mature" anime.

Yes I have actually used a sewing machine before; 6th grade, Home Economics. No, I have not ever created clothing from scratch nor put together a cosplay outfit. What I do know is that there are perfectly reasonable outfits that can be made based on anime characters. Maybe the people who make the outfits are to blame more than the anime.

It's easy to hate anime cosplay, because it's human beings trying to emulate these crazy looks of characters who aren't represented in live action.

I would just like you to keep in mind that while anime cosplayers may do a shitty job, so can comic book cosplayers and sci-fi/fantasy cosplayers. You're right, though; the klingon cosplay was great. And by great, I mean that the woman Klingon had fantastic cleavage, and that's all I focused on.

BTW, I actually got a word for word verification: fable!

Courtney, even in your hey-guys-check-out-my-legs "Vulcan Cosplay 2" photo, you look perfectly busty to me, unless I'm just seeing what I wanna see. Why girls all want to look like Chesty Morgan anyway, I have no idea.

You're probably originally from Mars, anyhow. In your case, it'd just make perfect sense (which reminds me, hey Xantes, did you see "Waters of Mars" yet? Good Who.)

I could be wrong about this given how long ago I watched it, but didn't Ghost in the Shell end with the chick winding up inside another, much, much younger robot chick? That's just what we call a "happy ending". For all the male viewers, anyway.

Xantes, Doctor Octopus never smiles! Probably. 'Cause I know you'll find a smiling Doc Ock picture just to prove me wrong.

Sadly enough, the one-time Sailor Pluto has become addicted to heroin and currently works as a prostitute in Los Angeles.

Hey, don't insult the Mugato! Anything that wants to kill Kirk is okay by me.

Does that "naked kids" scene include Misty? And if so, where can I get a copy of it?

Vichus, harem comedies are for kids? I dunno, most of the Tenchi stuff is okay. As far as comparing anime to romantic comedies, those flicks are an anti-artform that only exists to lull bitches into a stupor and whisper into their vacant heads, "It's's ookaayy..."; funny how romantic comedies and well, religion have the same lobotomizing purpose. There's no way I'm gonna pretend Grave of the Fireflies isn't at least a thousand times better than anything Sandra Bullock's ever made.

Well, harem comedies certainly aren't mature. If harem comedies were mature and adult, they'd be hentai.

Nah, I stopped watching Dr Who, figure I'll just get it when the boxsets comes out.

That's weird, I can't find any details on that episode. I know Misty was in it. I'm not sure if they showed nudity but I think they might've banned it because they didn't want American kids running into fields naked.

Xantes, I highly recomend you catch up on your Who. It's just really, really good as they ramp to the end.


Tenant manages to contain (while still telegraphing) The Doctor's growing inner tumult- I say this as - even in their primes - neither Shatner nor Baker ever managed to contain anything on their respective shows.

Oh, and there are some new November blog posts you might enjoy
And since Trekkie is now officially dead in PCX Cannon, these were written by some angry, woman hating, thrice married apparition.

Xantes, I hate the censors' line of (non-)thought that kids will just mimic anything they see on TV. They showed The Exorcist on broadcast TV and I don't recall it prompting a national wave of young girls masturbating with crucifixes (not that there's anything wrong with that.)

Vichus, I never heard of this "shotacon" anime before, though I think there's this guy Kingslee who's got a closet full of it...

Trekkie, somehow it's just right that you're dead during the exact same patch of time your hero Bruce Wayne is "dead" too!

The right guys in charge could always reign Baker in. I mean, Douglas Adams-era Tom Baker would've ruined "Logopolis", for example. And Shatner? He should have been "contained" about 80 years ago by the jar that an abortion hose sucks any other untalented fetus into.

Sort of. The Exorcist might not inspire as much as you would like but after the movie came out churches did report an increase of people believing they were possessed and some of the acts were sexual. Supposedly it happens all the time when possession movies come out. Also happens when UFO/alien movies come out, more people report being abducted.

I remember reading somewhere but not sure if it's fact based in any way but supposedly back in the middle ages many girls and their parents thought they were possessed because the girls were masturbating.

If Trekkie is dead who is this MC Trekkie? Is he the clone of Trekkie? Or is he the mirror Trekkie? Or is he the son of Trekkie? Or is he the mind of Trekkie uploaded into the web? Or is he a new Trekkie of a new universe formed when a time traveler when back into the past to stop shit from happening? Or is he really Mr Sherry in diguise?

Xantes, those girls in the middle ages only masturbated when their daddies and priests weren't around to take care of things. And by "things" of course, I mean their hot, underage little pussies.

Vichus, I can think of any number of anime toons where I've been like, "Wait, this girl's supposed to be how young again?" but haven't seen any lolicon anime proper. Which just means I'm open to recommendations...

Damn, my "looking for anything sexual" eyes. I instantly read, "I was suntanning nude by the pool..." Which was a great image until I read the whole thing and saw the artist wasn't suntanning it was just some old british guy.

Sort of, the little girls' fathers were usually dumb as bricks and didn't know anything about girls self pleasuring. Doesn't mean they didn't have sex with them, they just never seen a female orgasm. The priests did, which is why they would take the little girls to be "saved" at their church and thus created the nunneries.

Xantes, you just reminded me (and I hope I haven't already mentioned this) there was a nun sex scene recently in Criminal, which proves that Ed Brubaker's stuff must be raking in so much money for Marvel, they're just letting him do whatever he wants. In the future, I assume Marvel's new Disney masters will at least make Bru have the slutty nun wearing Mickey Mouse ears or something when she's being the whore she is.

Vichus (and whatever FBI guy might eventually read this), for the record, rest assured that I didn't bookmark those links that you didn't post. You may also not want to check out Honey is a Girl and Before It Grows Up, two books that I've never repeatedly tried to get Vixen to review on her show.

Courtney, you might not go up in a puff of smoke in direct sunlight; you could just sort of sparkle like the vampires in Twilight. Which is what I've been told they do, anyway; I'm sure as hell not gonna watch that crap. In fact, it says a lot that over here, every bitch who thinks they can read knows Stephanie Meyer's name from her writing that garbage (*cough*Mormon propaganda*cough*) but if you mentioned Dawkins to any of them, they'd just be like, "Who?"

Courtney (and Tim again), we should do that (anti-) Christmas issue of Blade, what with Cthulhumas coming up. Speaking of which, Tim, there was a good Blade series in like '06/'07, not that more than like two or three people ever bought it.

He did have a series for awhile. That was cancelled in 2007. But I liked it.

I know you are opposed to the established religions, Trenchcoat, but you have to love nutty religious people, right? Card's a nut, that Westboro Baptist Church family is insane, but that's entertaining!

I give those type of people a pass, because they don't hide the fact that their religious beliefs are fucking batshit.

They don't hide it because they don't know they are batshit. Nothing's more dangerous than a zealot with a plan. And money. And a gun. And access to the president.

Well these nuts in particular are no threat to the president because they are so sure they are right about everything that they expect everyone else to burn in hell.

I, for one, would like to go to hell just so I don't have to suffer any of these people ever again.

Vichus, Card's nuttiness I can live with, since I can just ignore his work; those Westboro loons, though...those are the ones that protest at funerals, right? I gotta think that's their way of trying to get their asses kicked just so they can come off as victims like their fictitious idol, Jeebus.

Xantes, "batshit" is the perfect description for loons who actually think dinosaur bones were just fabricated by God and put here to test man's faith!

The rumor (I guess it's believable) is that Westboro incites rage so that they can be sued and get money to sustain themselves. They are a family of lawyers, after all.

If it's possible, find the interviews that Ron Bennington does with them. Rather than do the typical screaming at these people for the nuts they are, he amuses them by letting them say what they want. He gets his jabs in, but for the most part he just lets them reveal just how nuts they are.

You have to figure Hell would have all the best bands, anyway. Who'd provide the live music in Heaven, Dinah Shore? (I was gonna say "Pat Boone?", but apparently he's not quite dead yet.)

Vichus, it's funny these lunatics think they're so pure and noble. After all, what could be more righteous than, um, "a family of lawyers"...?

Go to heaven for music. You got Mahalia Jackson (gospel singer) Lawrence Welk, The Andrew Sisters, and in seven or eight decades, the Jonas Brothers.

Crossing our fingers for Pat Boone. He did make that heavy metal album a few years ago.

Actually I think the Jonas Brothers will be in hell, they have to, that is my personal hell scenario. That and trying to explain to certain individuals that Pinguin is not racist in Mexico. That's my Sisyphus rock.

Xantes, you and Tim are still fighting over this?! I might have to do a Memin Pinguin episode just to settle this whole mess once and for all.

I think you should do Xantes' favorite issue entitled "Yo, Dat Bitch Done Stole My Wateymelon!"

I have to admit if that was a real Memin story, I'd have to read it. Then again, since I'd need to review the book with Xantes translating anyway since I can't read Spanish, he could totally fuck with me and claim that really is the title of whatever issue I could find to digitally "borrow" online.

Well, I'm guessing that there are either legit translators or scanlators out there who have put the book in English. After all, if foreign language books weren't translated to English, Vixen wouldn''t have a book to review every year on Podcast XXX.

T-Mafia, please send me the Memin Pinquin issue you claim to have.
And any you can find. I have a translator (downcast, supposedly).

Vichus: Oh, like you're not secretly looking forward to the next PC3X episode, coming out some time in 2010. Or possibly 2011.

Tim: "Claim"?! What's funny is you'll believe in a make-believe fairyland like this "Heaven" place before you'll believe someone would download an issue of Memin Pinguin! If you'd just get on the DC++ bandwagon, you'd see there's not much that's ever been published that's not easily had.

How is Nick Cannon's "character" in that video different than any of the shuckin' and jivin' he did in "Wildin' Out" or some of the roles he's played in Hollywood (including that of Mariah's Husband. Talk about jivin'.)

PCX: The Classics Tour.

The more I listen to Thoom's reviews the more I think I should see the stuff he doesn't like.

Until Bush broke the bank and our reputation, wasn't the rest of the world learning English so they can be like the Americans? Look at Australia, sure they have a few nonsense words but they mostly speak American. And so do the British.

Too bad Empowered didn't show up in the 90's, if it did they should have gone on Hustler Comix or Penthouse Comix, and just done the nudity and sex.

Wonder if Courtney has the power to satisfy a man. Label her AILF.

Convince me Empowered is a good comic.

Sexy Venom would have to have fleshy color or transparent skin. And maybe only select covering like Witchblade. Or like Andrey Razumovsky.

Old men have kids because they can laugh that he doesn't have to care for it anymore, too old.

TCM, you got it wrong. you want the girl to look older in public, and as your Errol Flynn alibi, "she don't look like no underage poontang."

All this talk about how impossible some of the anime is to make for cosplay makes me wonder if anyone ever tried to cosplay Liefeld characters as they are drawn.
