"DISTURBING AND TROUBLING ON MANY LEVELS" - REC.ARTS.COMICS.DC.UNIVERSE
posted by T Mafia at 10:23 AM
Whew. I forgot my Blogger sign-in, and it was a whole thing. So the show is gonna be delayed for a while.I'll hopefully get it back up by the end of the month.
Or next month, rather.
Just to clarify, I do think the U.S can be taken over by communists but not in the way they wrote about it, not at that time in our history. It's not that we would be against communisn but we would be against dictators.Dumb of me, they would work for ration cards but how many workers would still had been on strike at that point if there's no chance of getting a raise, all they get is ration cards. You can be an overweight superhero but just don't be one wearing tights.
Speaking of overweight superheroes, whatever happened to Herbie, the Fat Fury?
I should really stop making all these promises I end up not keeping - on that note, hopefully, #250 will be out by Halloween.
Have you seen Dark Dungeons, yet? Based on the Jack T. Chick tract, with his permission. You should get Thoom for an updated commentary.
I couldn't find Dark Dungeons online anywhere, so forget that.And Tim's apparently quit podcasting.
They got it split up into 4 parts on Youtube, just do a search for "Dark Dungeons". It's not the complete dvd version.
So why nothing til Halloween or later? Are you also suffering side effects from the Blackhawk review?
I'm suffering from Starhawk basically forcing me to record a 250th episode; he considered that a big deal. On a related note, the episodes we recorded should air shortly afterwards.
Yeah, sorry for all these delays - #250 will be out before you know it. And I promise to get at least one episode per month out from now on; just forget I ever said that "1st and 15th" thing.
Is 250 another musical?
Never again. Once was more than enough.
In other news, Starhawk's gotten gender reassignment surgery? Trenchcoat, why didn't you tell me?http://newsarama.com/22660-first-look-guardians-3000-3.html
That's the one Guardians book I don't read. I'll be sure to mention Starhawk's sex change to PCX's Starhawk, though.
What are you talking about? Wasn't that one of Starhawk's powers? Sex change or actually switching places with his wife so she wore the Starhawk costume too.
I'll just let PCX Starhawk address all this, should he choose to do so.
Still around? Have you seen Dr Who lately? Is it just me or is it okay to hate the whole Danny Pink mess? Watch, he may be dead but she's pregnant with his baby.
Anything that ultimately gets rid of Clara one way or another is OK with me. Capaldi's a great Doctor, now all he needs is a good companion.
Clara isn't bad but they really tainted her with the Danny Pink, In the 2D people episode she was back to being the kickass barmaid/nanny Clara instead of whiney "I got a boyfriend" Clara.
They really need to just bring back Amy.
Pffff, Amy got tiring, I'm amazed she fooled Rory so good. I mean it's like telling a guy you're a virgin and carrying God's child. I think the Doctor made up that "conceived in the time stream makes you a time lord" business. Amy got pregnant by the Doctor, then when River grew up he was just out there having fun with his daughter, we all know he never had sex with her because he won't do incest.
I'm just glad they never brought River back.
They can bring back River as long as she regenerated into looking more like her mother. Have you seen what Alex Kingston looks like now on The Arrow? She's a MIDWF.
I don't watch Arrow.
Hello. So how's it going? Starhawk being problematic? Oh yeah, Don't bother with Arrow, I'm only watching it cause I've been watching it. Right now the story is when he was missing, Waller used him secretly for black ops, lost millionaire who could use a bow and arrow, Waller's budget must had been cut deep. And almost every criminal is from Batman. Flash is okay, but Gotham is better.
No, The problem isn't Starhawk; I'm just lazy. And as far as Gotham goes, I really hate all things Batman.
What about 15 year old Selina Kyle.
Well the actress is 15, the character she plays is suppose to be 13.
Well, 13 is better than 15...
Oh yeah, Don't bother with Arrow, I'm only watching it cause I've been watching it. Right now the story is when he was missing, Waller used him secretly for black ops, lost millionaire who could use a bow and arrow, Waller's budget must had been cut deep. And almost every criminal is from Batman.Life Experience Degree
What the fuck?
Yeah, that's what I said. What was all that "online degree" shit?
Just a dumb ad. At first I thought someone stole my post but when I came back with more time I saw they just cut and pasted. You can't delete?
Not even worth it.
Have you heard of The Hawkeye Initiative? Trying to remember if I heard it before but it seems like a really stupid idea. They take any pose that some people think are over sexualized and replace them with Hawkeye. It seems really dumb cause I think most of the poses that seem like it's being done by a flexible person, insert Spiderman and it just looks normal. Then there's the one with really big butts and/or breasts, why are they trying to imply to big women with big breasts and asses that they aren't normal. Seems anti-women to me.Just bored and checking to see if you're around.Later.
Yeah, I'm still around. Hopefully, I'll get #250 up by the end of this or next month.And what about Luba and her ginormous tits from Love and Rockets? "Anti-woman" indeed.
One of these days I should get around to reading it since you mention it now and then. Little bit I've read of them (2 issues maybe), I was less than impressed, seems like those spanish soap opera comics I used to read when I was small when I could read them or when my aunt read them to us.
Skip ahead to Love and Rockets #29;that had the best story of the original run ("Flies on the Ceiling".)It's better than any given issue of Memin Pinguin, at any rate.
Nah, I liked Memin, L&R just seems annoying.
I don't know which issues of L&R you read, but it generally gets better as it goes along.Those early books were admittedly awful, though.
Probably what I read. I used to buy so many comics, almost all my regular comic stores would give me freebies. Most of it is crap but sometimes I would get good ones or ones I already had. I'm sure that's how I got the 2 issues of L&R. I think I got at least 2 long boxes of misc. misc. which is mostly the freebies.
I recommend #29 again- and if you don't like that, you're probably not gonna like any of the other issues.
Send it to me.
I'll try to.
Wow, can't believe I haven't been on here in so long. How you been? Doing okay? Still doing that episode with Starhawk?
Yes, I'm fine. The hold-up with that Starhawk episode is that it's so damn long. Hopefully, I'll get it out by the end of July.
Was it a race issue?
No; not at all.
Good news for Timmy Thoom, his friend Kingsley can get married to the one he loves and stop pretending he loves pussy.
It's about time the Supreme Court made America join the 21st century.
Hey guys, what's happening? It's been a long time, so much has changed since I was last here. Let's see, in chronological order I had Barmah Forest Virus which causes chronic fatigue, I had that for 18 months. Then my dad abandoned the family for no good reason and is now living with some woman who writes insane rants on the blog of his business site, real professional. We had to sell our house and we're back to renting, almost didn't find a place because housing in Perth is stupidly expensive. Then I came out as transgender, as of Saturday I will have been on testosterone for a month. I've not had much luck with work, last two jobs only lasted two months each, I still take costume commissions at least. I'm studying a BA in humanities to become a librarian. Also I'm really into writing fiction right now. Oh and my biggest project I'm making for myself right now is a super detailed and realistic Doctor Doom costume. I still think of PCX from time to time, roll my eyes at the stupid teenager I was, but I have fond memories of the show and you mad bastards too.
What? No, it is your choice and all but you're so delicious as a female. Does this mean you do like females? Well wish you luck and joy with your changes. To the weird future and beyond.Wow. Over a year since last episode. And 2 years since Thoom posted a podcast unless he's hiding it from me very well. And from his facebook, he seems to be getting stereotypically married.Speaking of chronic fatigue, I've been feeling tired and anxious after I found a bedbug crawling around in a token booth I was working at. They found out it was infested. I was only in there for 30 minutes, checked myself and the stuff I had with me. I seem to be clear but I've been getting upset stomachaches due to anxiety that I might have them and spreading them around. Makes me rethink if I could function in a zombie apocalypse.Let's end this happy, But I have to wait til it comes out on cable cause I don't go to theaters in case of bedbugs.
Oops I linked it wrong. Here it is properly.
The Peanuts movie looks pretty cute and faithful enough. I loved those comics as a kid. I was wondering when they would get on the adaptation train. My sexuality has not changed, I'm still asexual though I admire both men and women. I had a weird and long journey of discovery there. There really needs to be more asexual visibility in the world. Same problem with transgender people, I didn't realise I was trans until fairly recently but looking back it was so obvious. I always felt uncomfortable as a woman, physically and socially and yet I would overcompensate and dress super-feminine to please my mother. I was her mini-me. I was always told I wasn't like other girls because on the inside I was male and my interests and attitudes were male. It's so great to finally be myself, I love my short hair, my suits, not having to worry about make-up and heels. I'm even starting to build muscle, it's just the voice that's letting me down. It's only beginning to squeak and break.
Courtney,I've never even heard of "Barmah Forest Virus"; the closest to that I ever had was Mono. As far as coming out as "transgender", I don't know how that works with your claims of "asexuality", but whatever.Xantes,I'm looking forward to the Peanuts movie, actually. Fuck the fact that it's CGI, though. I'm running late on #250 now that I mention it.Courtney,What are your thoughts on the new Doctor Who? I personally like the fact they finally cast an older guy. They just need to kill off annoying-ass Clara now. Bring back Amy!
Supposedly not my topic but,...Clara is not a bad character, what makes her stink is Danny Pink. Every episode where she has to try to somehow get him to like her or please him just stinks. She shone in the episode where the Tardis shrunk and Clara had to step up and be the Doctor, "No time for you Danny Pink, I'm saving the world. >click<". See I think Amy spoiled it for Clara, the writers seem to be staying away from a controlling female character because they feel like they've done it already, so they keep making her submissive when she can kick ass. Hopefully with Danny Pink dead they can move on but they probably won't. No, they have "Martha Jones-ed" her. Most people loved Rose, so when Martha showed up they just kept showing that she wasn't another Rose. Rose was an focused young girl who probably would've gotten pregnant by Micky and been miserable the rest of her life. Martha was the opposite, she was a doctor, highly motivated, knew her path, but that's not opposite enough, "we can't make her hate the doctor if she's gonna travel with her, we'll make her love-sick with the Doctor but that he doesn't care for her that way at all."And they've done that with Clara, she can't be all controlling like Amy, she can't be the center of the Doctor's universe, she can't be the girl, the guy waits thousands of years for, fights for, dies for. No Clara has to be opposite, be the girl to be protected, revolve around the doctor's center of gravity for all of time and space, she has to have the whinny boyfriend she has to moon over and chase down. She has to have the boyfriend who only saves her so she can turn him emotionless cause it hurts too much, never mind that once he's a full Cyberman, he'll kill her.So Clara, once the flirty, imprisoned castaway/really a nutty dalek, once a cheeky barmaid/child saving governess, couldn't stay that way, too much like Amy Pond. Make her opposite. Clara has been Martha Jones-ed.
My interest in Moffat's run on Doctor Who is rapidly declining. I love Capaldi and Jenna, perfect casting there, but the show is just rubbish. It takes itself too seriously, it's Doctor Who, lighten up. Sherlock season 3 was stupid too. And I'm with pretty much everyone else on the planet when I say Oswin was way more interesting than Clara. Oswin was radiating personality and energy, Clara is just there to be pleasant. I also think she's bee around too long. Amy and Martha have been my favourite companions in the New Who era. I think Amy had a great run but Martha was terribly handled. As for being an asexual transman, works out quite well actually. I needn't worry about finding a partner or the fact that I lack the correct genitals.
Speaking of transsexuals and the Doctor, fast forward to around 80 minutes. Glad they finally replaced River Song with a better, bearable actress around 32 minutes.
Xantes,I totally forgot Clara was ever "a nutty Dalek" in the first place.Courtney,Maybe someone new besides Moffat should take over the show.
I would really love to see Nicholas Briggs take over. He's best known as the voice of the Daleks and Cybermen but more significantly, he is one of the producers of the Big Finish audio dramas. If you haven't heard any, I highly recommend them, they capture the spirit of Classic Who as well as giving Colin Baker and Paul McGann a long deserved chance to shine. In fact I would say the Eighth and Sixth Doctor stories are my favourite. Speaking of River Song, I like Alex Kingston well enough but River is just rubbish, I tried to like her but it's impossible. I actually preferred the actress who played her when she was a teenager growing up with Amy and Rory.
You mean her River is rubbish. Alex Kingston sucked as River Song cause River was suppose to be fun, quirky, intelligent, that's what teenage River was. Alex Kingston seemed like the old lady who wears a lot of makeup, tries to get you drunk before she gets tired of smiling and cracks her face.Hopefully they realize this before they cast another River. You know she will be back eventually. They'll probably give each new Doctor his own version of River, saying she found the Timelords' regeneration box.
I hate River even more than I hate Clara. And that's saying something.
Oh, I missed what you said about Dr Who being too serious. How is it too serious? To me Dr Who has always been silly, funny, and serious. Maybe it's cause 10 was usually funny and 11 was silly and you're not used to 12 a bit more serious, or is it just that he's older and you think he's more serious. To me it's basically the same, it's, for lack for a better word, "Doctorish". The main thing I see wrong with this season (always seems to come right back to it) is Danny Pink. Makes no sense the Dr now hates soldiers so much. Didn't 8 kill himself trying to save a soldier. The Dr hating soldiers is just so it gives a chance for Danny to redeem himself at the end, which I thought failed. And Clara has to behave childish whenever the relationship is brought up.The only other thing I can think of that sucked this season is the "Kill the Moon" episode. They traveled 35 years into the future. And they have to decide whether or not they have to kill the moon to save Earth. Why not call yourself and see what you did? Or why didn't Clara's past self send her a telegram, like in "Back to The Future 3." That's the one time I thought the Dr should had exiled Clara from his adventures.
Hopefully, they'll just kill Clara off in season 9.
Remember children, don't go with strangers, unless they say they are time travelers.
Why do they even make films like that...what about all the kids who want to be molested?!
They usually let you know, like when they sit on your lap and rub their asses on your crotch. Or they'll tell you in a blog and mean it unless they were confused. Or maybe a legal aged female will try to invite even younger girls to join you unless that's a scam i.e Jared. So his real secret to loosing 200 pounds was Subway sandwiches and underage girls.Rochelle Herman is getting a new TV series, "I was an Pedophile for the F.B.I."
Who the hell is Rochelle Herman?
The woman who pretended to have the same interests as Jared did and then recorded it all for THE F.B.I.
Courtney, I can't believe I just thought about it, but since you're abandoning the girl look, can we get full nudes of the before. I figure since it won't be you anymore, you won't mind showing it off.
I don't have any nudes from when I was as a woman. I've been on testosterone for three months now, I look pretty androgynous.
Yeah but it's not like your genitals, Mighty Morphin Powered up. Or did you get the slice and reshape done already?
Not sure why anyone would be interested in seeing genitals, they're the least appealing part of any creature, humans included. Getting a fake penis is widely regarded as a joke amongst transmen, it's an extensive and horrific surgery which involves lengthening the urethra through the thigh as well as cutting out a chunk of flesh from ones back to make the skin tube that's supposed to resemble a penis. Not sure what they do for a scrotum. And all of that for what? To urinate standing up? It's not functional for sex. Personally as an asexual I would rather not have any genitals at all, a vaginectomy would be nice if I weren't completely poor. Unlike other atavistic body parts like the appendix, which aren't very demanding, in fact they don't call attention to themselves at all, genitals are high maintenance and uncomfortable and take up valuable room either internally or externally. I don't see what all the fuss is about.
Thought I posted a response.Besides sex, there is the repop reason. I thought you saw "Children of Men". Have you ever read "Me and Joe Priest"? It's about a priest being the last fertile man left in the world and his friend who has to convince him to give up underaged boys or something like that. What about "Y: The Last Man."So this means you're a he-female?
That still doesn't answer the question of why anyone would enjoy seeing genitals. My point wasn't why would anyone want to have sex, that's a biological imperative obviously. And I'm going to ignore that final comment as it's beyond offensive, it's absolutely disgusting.
Cause it turns people on. Seeing sexual parts and acts turns people on. I didn't mean any offense but I thought since she-males are men who decided they want to be female but either don't or haven't gotten their dicks changed, then doing the "opposite" would be the term you think is offensive.
Come on, are you seriously telling me that you don't know she-male is a derogatory term? Have you ever heard anyone call themselves that? Probably not, it's a hate word like tranny or fag.
Yes, Ive heard people call themselves she-males, trannies and fags. I live and partied in New York City. I do think tranny is now considered a bit derogatory but "fag"? Gays reclaimed that word years ago, and unless it's used as an insult, like say by the Westboro Church, gays use it all the time. I don't really hang out with any known trannies or she-males of late. So I mostly go by what language is acceptable by going along with what Dan Savage deems okay. Oh and porn sites, they use "she-males" all the time, I know this not cause I watch those videos but cause I read the title of those videos and skip em.So do as the gays have done, seize the power and reclaim your words. Don't give your words the power of those who wish ill upon you but give them your culture, your love, empower your words.
Tell a Christian.
Xantes wrote:"So do as the gays have done, seize the power and reclaim your words. Don't give your words the power of those who wish ill upon you but give them your culture, your love, empower your words."But since you aren't of this group, Xantes it isn't fair for you to tell trans folks how they should react towards words that they feel unfairly describe them.
Just cause I said it doesn't mean it is to be so. I don't have some level of authorithy in this case so I'm not commanding, I'm suggesting. And so what I'm not of such group, if they like the idea let them do it, if not, disregard. "Hey, black kids, don't point guns at white cops." Should I not be allowed to say that?"Lady, don't go out into the forrest on your period, there bears out yonder."
This is so bias, against the real victim, Fausto Bonifaz.
This didn't seem so crazy
So what's going on? Everyone gone?
Things are "on hold" for now. Episode 250 will see the light of day, eventually.
Okay. Even though I check this site daily, a Facebook notification about Thoom's birthday prompted me to message.
