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.

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.

October 11, 2014 6:38 PM

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.

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.

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.

November 21, 2014 12:17 PM

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.

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.

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.

Blogger XantesFire said...

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.

March 06, 2015 2:20 PM  
Blogger T Mafia said...

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.

March 06, 2015 5:43 PM

Nah, I liked Memin, L&R just seems annoying.

March 09, 2015 8:13 AM

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.

March 09, 2015 4:38 PM  
Blogger XantesFire said...

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.

March 12, 2015 8:44 AM  
Blogger T Mafia said...

I recommend #29 again- and if you don't like that, you're probably not gonna like any of the other issues.

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.

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!

August 05, 2015 3:29 PM  
Blogger XantesFire said...

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.

August 06, 2015 2:25 AM  
Blogger T Mafia said...

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.

August 06, 2015 3:49 PM  
Blogger Courtney Coulson said...

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.

August 06, 2015 7:39 PM  
Blogger XantesFire said...

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.

August 07, 2015 12:25 PM  
Blogger T Mafia said...

I hate River even more than I hate Clara. And that's saying something.

August 07, 2015 5:09 PM  
Blogger XantesFire said...

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.

Yeah but it's not like your genitals, Mighty Morphin Powered up. Or did you get the slice and reshape done already?

October 06, 2015 9:46 PM  
Blogger Courtney Coulson said...

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.

October 09, 2015 2:57 AM  
Blogger XantesFire said...

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?

October 11, 2015 4:31 AM  
Blogger Courtney Coulson said...

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.

October 11, 2015 4:38 AM  
Blogger XantesFire said...

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.

October 16, 2015 1:33 PM  
Blogger Courtney Coulson said...

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.

October 16, 2015 9:01 PM  
Blogger XantesFire said...

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.

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.
