Why not review a documentarium, Thoom the Retro comics podcast reviews movies all the time.

Wasn't "Take it easy" about a trucker jacking off.

"Picking up the Pieces" is the song I think they play most when I get put on hold.

3 by 5 business cards were used for awhile back in the 70's and 80's, so they could fit in a Rolodex, supposedly higher end businesses would have them.

Maybe having a white guy with a name associated with racism is a way for the writer to mock racists.

Never understood why Misty Knight always seemed to have an afro. I think it was shorter for awhile. But in reality some black women during all time periods would have afros. Some wore it to be retro, some as a statement and some too poor to change it. Chinky Collen Wing and the afro

Hey, the Professor's experiment was my idea, I know I put it here before, except for the eating him part.

Maybe because unlike Seinfeld there are blacks on Curb?

They did ask her, she was possessive of her easy bake.

On Friends, Marcel the monkey was maturing and getting horny so he was humping everything and everyone. The off screen reason.

Bubbles was also sent away for aggression problems.

Pedophiles, better of dead? That's not TCM. And not all pedos are bad.

If you're wondering where I am I'll be in Sydney for the next few days. Seeing Top Gear again.
This time I'll be dressed as The Stig and sitting in the front row.

Trenchcoat, if you think Lost is bad for "just making it up as they go along" then you'll hate these things they call, um, comic books, which not only make stuff up as they go along, but also have to continue to make u stories for characters who maybe should have died, moved on, or have been replaced.

I think making it up as you go along is a bad thing if you're not competent writers. I'm looking at you, Heroes.

I really liked the heads on the front cover of team comics. It served basically no purpose, but it was cool. For people who don't read the comics, I think it's a good incentive to pick the comic up.

I also liked recap pages and brief bios.


Trenchcoat, I'd also like to improve upon your racism. You can't say that a Japanese person has "chinky eyes" because that's reserved for either a) Chinese people or b) non-asian people who smoke a hell of a lot of weed. I guess you would have to say that Japanese people have Jap eyes- or be respectful of all races, but we know that's not gonna happen.

I didn't watch Seinfield from episode to episode when it was still live on he air, but I would watch the repeats like crazy. Some good stuff, but they didn't seem to play the later episodes as much. Probably because they stunk.

Curb Your Enthusiasm is great stuff! I have to catch up on those seasons.

First off, sorry for not checking in this past week or so - I was down in Sydney stalking Courtne-- uh, I mean, all that snow (on top of those first couple of feet!) we got hit with has made getting anywhere lately time-consuming enough to pretty much rob me of my precious "computer time".

Xantes - Believe it or not, there's a film review "in the works", but don't ever hold your breath for those here. PCX reviewing movies only happens about as often as Tim bothering to review an actual comic book these days.

I hate that "Take It Easy" song anyway, but you just made it disturbing to me on top of it being so boring.

I don't know where you found that pic, but okay, let the record show there's at at least one artist who realizes that Colleen Wing should probably have chinky eyes! (reads Vichus' post) Sorry, make that "jappy" eyes. (goes to Google Image Search) Okay, okay, at least artists in this past decade or so haven't been de-half-Asianizing Ms. Wing!

And just to make sure I've offended everyone by this point, they probably censored a scene written for that Seinfeld ep. where Jerry and Elaine open the woman's Easy-Bake Oven and a bunch of burned-up Barbie dolls with Star of David armbands fall out.

Aside to Hasbro (since I had to check their site to make sure that wasn't spelled "EZ" Bake Oven): please get a hotter-looking little girl on your Easy-Bake Oven page. Thank you.

Considering that Courtney "Botox Face" Cox eventually married David Arquette, she was probably just jealous Marcel had better acting chops than the kind of guys she likes to hook up with.

I saw that letter in the Philly City Paper and just hope that poor man eventually comes to terms with his healthy and normal pedo urges.

Vichus - I guess I expect any given TV show to hold together better than a Marvel of DC comic that's understood to be part of a larger "universe" of a whole bunch of comic books under however many writers and editors, all with their own agendas. And I can't help seeing those recap pages as one more page they could have given me of actual story (I never minded those 70s Marvel "Here's the deal..." boxes they'd slap on top of their splash pages, though.)

In my defense, "jappy eyes" just isn't as much fun to say as "chinky eyes"! Well, that plus I'm not gonna pretend I can tell the difference between Chinese and Japanese people. I mean, other than that there's such a thing as tall Chinese people (all the better to stand above China's clouds of industrial pollution), whereas evolution has led the Japanese to be very small and thus harder for Godzilla to find to step on.

Well, Jappy eyes isn't in vogue. You have to spread it to your racist friends and get it going.

Speaking of Friends cast members, have you heard the rumor that Brad Pitt dumped Jennifer Aniston because her pussy stinks?

I'm not even gonna try to popularize "jappy eyes" as a slur when we're talking about a country that could send any number of giant monsters after me for revenge, whereas all China can do is nuke me.

And I have no problem believing that Jennifer Aniston has an odiferous pussy - it sure would explain why the bitch can't keep a man.

PCX: The Classics Tour.

Kingsley- tee hee.

Thoom, you're saying who cares if an Asian character doesn't look half Asian but if a half black character didn't look black you would complain, wouldn't you?

Actually when Shang-Chi was created they still had to try to slide it into racist middle Americans hands without too much turmoil. What's less offensive? Half white or a total foreign main character.

Direct bus trip doesn't mean non-stop, just mean a more direct route like NYC to LA, maybe a stop in Tulsa on the way. Stops in Ft Lauderdale and Seattle would be out of the way.

If it's racist that Luke Cage barely makes ends meet, then what is it call when Peter Parker barely makes ends meet?

Oh please, Thoom probably doesn't like Seinfeld because of it's lack of black characters and I have to admit it was missing that but I know people who live like that.

"Okay, Everybody, get the fuck over it. He was a pedophile. He's dead. That's a good thing. When bad people die we should applause" .......TrenchCoat Mafia?.....said.....that?....

Yeah, what's up with black guys calling others, "sugar"? Is it a non-gender specific term for blacks or is it a subtle insult? (I say subtle cause I don't know.) I've seen it used by what I believed were straight black men, it's even been used on me. Or is that a slang term leftover from their prison time?

Note to self, tie Courtney's legs apart before she comes to.
