Much too late for The Dark Knight Rises, though

Vichus!!! Where the hell have you been? This place has been empty since Xantes up and disappeared.

Ms. Hathaway's only my third favorite Catwoman, though. Julie Newmar and Michelle Pfieffer are way ahead of her. Anne's wayyy better than over-the-hill-even-then Eartha Kitt, though.

Maybe you have to work some on building back up your fanbase.

I cannot blame you for liking the other Catwomen better. I heard that Hathaway takes acting a little bit too seriously, and that JG Levitt had to tell her to chill. JGL's a fucking golden child, and he's not taking it seriously.

If his cock was hanging out, he wouldn't be crying about it to the press.

Going weekly again and the New Wave Hookers review are my first attempts at winning the fans back.

The subscriber numbers used to be as high as "94" circa the first THOOM review. Unfortunately, then people actually listened to that particular episode...

You got to get into the social media man, facebook, twitter, start building a fanbase. Right now we're just the creepy cabin in the woods that a stranger is occassionally foolish enough to venture into.

Man, I've been so busy. I was in the Christmas Pageant on TV on Saturday. I was with Perth's Allied Costumers, a newly formed group, made by me. I was the Anne Hathaway Catwoman and it was a fantastic night. Here's some video:

Speaking of whom, I can't respect a girl who goes out without underwear. I thought she was smarter than that. All those cameras everywhere, you had to know it was a hell of a risk. That doesn't even look like a dress that would suffer from panty lines. But then again, she's freshly waxed, so I say it was intentional.

I was actually more distracted by her outfit though. It's a good idea in theory and it's a little bit Catwoman-esque. But what's with the bunchy cape thing? And those boots are just too much for any ensemble. If you turned it down by 20% they might be nice boots. Her hair is cute though.

Sorry, went on a fashion tangent.

What's a Courtney Coulson?

So are you going to modify your future Catwoman costumes with vag-slip features?

She absolutey knew what she was doing. I don't see her as someone who wanted to get her privates photographed, but she probably loves to go commando, and often.

She feels like someone who wants to be considered a good girl in public, but, you know, Havok

Just your bringing up fashion gave me horrific flashbacks to those Glamourpuss reviews.


Just skip to about 8:16 to 8:22 in that video for the important part (i.e. Courtney).

Agent Coulson is some SHIELD agent that CC's obsessed with.

Coulson would be more of a father figure, I'd marry Doom though.

Didn't I copy the url at the exact point in the video?

Nah, you started it with that stupid float.

And you'd probably make Doom keep his mask on.

Yes, you did, and it was fabulous. I'd comment further, but you're asexual, so the effect is diminished.

I don't believe she's really asexual for a second. She just wants us to think that she is.

I didn't watch the video on Youtube, BTW. I download all streaming video onto my computer to watch later.

If being asexual is just a trendy "thing" people say they are, then that has to be the worst youth trend ever.

Pretty much.

I'm getting an idea for a sci-fi story from that concept though. In the near future in reaction to overpopulation, asexuality becomes a trend.

Speaking of 'near future' I saw a graph on io9 comparing the years a sci-fi was written in, compared to the year it was set in. In the time of HG Wells or Jules Vern, stories were set hundreds or thousands of years in the future. The 60's loved to go to the 23rd century, but now that we practically live in the 'future' most modern sci-fi is set only a decade or so ahead or in an alternate reality.

I don't think you guys really understand what asexuality is, but then again I barely grasp the concept of what it must be like to have a sex drive or to have any urge to be with another person. I've always prefered my own company and I don't trust easily, so just making friends was a huge challenge for me right up until a few years ago.

"...just making friends was a huge challenge for me right up until a few years ago."

That's the first step on the path to eventually having sex, you know...

Forgive these short responses; the strokes pretty much wrecked my ability to type.

I prefer short and sweet comments anyway, Trenchcoat.

Making friends was never exactly a flip of the switch for me, either, but I cant live without my naughty content.

Speaking of sex, I just finished watching a new ep of Misfits and that show is very sexy, even though they've seem to held back the topless women since season 1. So how do you react to sexual content in fiction, Courtney?

Like when, um, Doctor Doom makes out with the armorflesh of his dead mother??

That reminds me, Mark Waid really doesn't understand Doom - he actually had him murder his one true love Valeria, the ONE person he'd probably never kill!

Yeah, watching Misfits with my brother was uncomfortable with all the sex scenes. I think that's the case for anyone watching that sort of thing with their family present.

But on my own I don't really care, it just bores me and makes me wish they'd get back to the important things, like, you know, the plot.

Maybe that's why I like scifi more than any other genre, most of the time it's cold and analytical, sure there's usually the one cliche, almost contractually required sex scene. But for the most part, it's driven by the upstairs brain.

Combine sci-fi wih Disney and you get Tron, the most sexless franchise ever, brilliant!

Old school Doctor Who used to be like that, but new Who keeps trying to get all romantic and shit. And then there's Torchwood, that got better in the later seasons when they slowed down on the sexy.

It was a total coincidence, but I listened to Podcast XXX, and you brought up Misfits.

Sometimes sex is the plot, as evidenced in this season, and obviously in the 1st season with the sex drive powers.

The most sexless franchise for me is Star Wars. I know it's a kid-friendly series, but boy, did Lucas know how to not give us any romance of any sort, and that's mostly in the prequels. Dare I say it: the prequels are asexual. Even with twin babies, it's asexual.

Star Trek ain't always cold and analytical. Mass Effect is known for its romantic entanglements. Aliens is ALL about impregnation.

Didn't the old Doctor roll with his granddaughter at one point? I guest the ghost of sex was lingering.

That's funny that you, a girl, aren't into the sexual relationships in shows. Geek girls are stereotyped as 'shipping and fan fictioning, slash fiction, and rule 34.

Tom Baker was fucking Lalla Ward offscreen, though. And you know the ninth Doctor was giving it to Rose.

As far as Trek goes, Kirk was nailing every bitch in sight.

His clone (or whatever the fuck he was; can't remember) definitely was giving Rose a proper rogering.

"Shortribs", "Sheepshanks", "Lacedlegs". I thought she was getting those names from the black ghettos.

In response to TCM's "Hail Satan" episodes, Thoom should make "Praise Jesus" episodes. Start with Jesus hates Zombies.

Didn't the Nazis have torture porn so it pre dates this comic. What about the Middle Ages and their paintings of hell or the Inquisition. Thoom don't know his Middle Ages.

Commenting on the CommentsSo you won't be dressing up as Anne Hathaway getting out of her car and exposing bush, then?

Anne Hathaway is a prime "A" slut. She wants to show the world her kitty. But she knows if she did it on "purpose" she would lose her career acting as the nice innocent somewhat asexual girl. And secret naughty girl that she is, she gets off playing the innocent. Wait. Why does that sounds familiar.

If being asexual is just a trendy "thing" people say they are, then that has to be the worst youth trend ever. Probably started by the Christian Right. They'll do anything to stop kids and the unmarried from fucking. -Now kids, go out and fuck somebody and not get pregnant or the religious terrorists win. Or if you do get preggers have an abortion, that'll show those freaks.

I'm getting an idea for a sci-fi story from that concept though. In the near future in reaction to overpopulation, asexuality becomes a trend. Nah, we'll try sterilization of the poor, TV death games, birth control in the water, soy based products that are people, pregnancy permits, robosex addiction all before we go asexual.

Speaking of 'near future' I saw a graph on io9 comparing the years a sci-fi was written in, compared to the year it was set in. Was the reasoning behind it cause tech is speeding up so the future arrives here faster or it's cheaper to make a movie if you just do a few future tweaks here and there.

Empire was great, Courtney used to remind me of Delfi, til this whole asexual phase.

Seriously of all movies to be sexless, Tron should not be. Wasn't, deleted love scene.
It's based in the internet. Where are the sexbots, the A.I sex programs, Sexy rule 63 Tron girl, and disease free sex orgies. Pron: The XXX Parody(part 2) sucked, background music stupid and not staying in the background and the only female on here somewhat "program" fit was Zoe Voss(Skip to 36:35 for her scene).

Original Dr Who sexless? What show were you watching?
1st Doctor-Sure the Doctor wasn't having sex cause his age but Barbara and Ian were constantly having sex, good thing she had the pill.
He left Susan behind because she was despoiled.
2nd Doctor- Gay.
3rd Doctor- Flamboyant but straight. He was a swinger, doing all his assistants.
4th Doctor- Sarah, Leela, Romana
5th Doctor- Well Teagan tried twice but he was all into Crickets.
6th Doctor-Why would he keep Peri around if not for her tits?
7th Doctor-Creepy Professor/student relationship with Ace.

Ah. Funny you should mention Aldric. When it originally aired I thought the Aldric character was pure genius. I didn't realize he was a bad actor. I thought he was playing the character as an alien not quite behaving human correctly. After all, his people were swamp lizards. While everyone else learned to play human he became a mathematical genius. So all his wrong decisions, his stumbling over lines, starring at the camera, wig off center, creepy looks were because he failed his Being Human classes.

I heard audio from when Hathaway was on Matt Lauer, and it's explained that if she had worn underwear, it wouldn't be flattering to her outfit. Oh well, the price of being fancy.

Tim should have me on his pro-Jesus episodes just so I can bash Jesus.

The second Doctor was straight. At least he was probably nailing Zoe. Although keeping Jaimie around does make him suspect.

"Adric" only got his job because the gay Doctor Who producer at the time had a crush on him.
