We Didn't Start the Fire - Medieval Cover · 3:46am Monday

My dad shared this with me today. I had a blast. :yay:

As an amateur student of medieval and Renaissance history, this spin on the Billy Joel song was a real joy to see play out. :pinkiehappy:

Hope you all find this worthy of a smile. ^_^

Foghorn Leghorn versus Walter White · 3:47pm July 5th

So, anyone remember those memes a while back, putting Foghorn Leghorn into various other shows, with him telling off various characters?

Someone animated one such meme in particular and it's hilarious. :rainbowlaugh:

(Also, if you know anything about Breaking Bad, there's something particularly darkly funny about Foghorn having been happy to work for Gustavo Fring, aka "the chicken man.")

Batman: Caped Crusader · 6:18pm June 26th

I've been waiting for news of this show for a while. Really hoping that it'll be good. :pinkiehappy:

A throwback to the Golden Age, with Bruce Timm and Ed Brubaker on the production team? This has my curiosity and my attention. :twilightsmile:

My Adventures with Superman - Season 2 · 5:44am May 26th

Just watched the premiere, first two episodes of the new season.

And I think we are off to a FINE start with this season! :pinkiehappy: :yay:

God, I've missed this show. Do yourselves a favor and look into it. This is one of the best Superman things - hell, one of the best superhero things in general - out there in a LONG time. :pinkiehappy:

Thoughts on The Fall Guy (2024) · 5:17am May 16th

This was fun. Not an all-time great, but still, a good and stylish way to kill two hours. :pinkiesmile:

Thoughts on Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace · 4:32am May 9th

The last time I watched this movie, I was around eight years old, having rented it from Food City. I'm glad to have watched it again, and on the big screen to boot.

So, this is the movie that spawned a generation or two of angry "fans" attacking George Lucas for having "raped their childhood". And that's not even getting into stuff like the hate for Jar-Jar or young Anakin's actors. (And the less said about things like the Plinkett reviews, the better.)

Primal Jack · 9:18pm May 6th

Found this image courtesy of Reddit. It was too good not to share. :pinkiehappy:

Speaking a little more seriously though, it's interesting to look at this and compare/contrast the two characters' designs and the respective art styles of their shows.

Also by way of comparison, looking at Spear and at Jack, I had the interesting realization that their stories run as pretty neat contrasts to each other.

I Am Back · 3:46am April 29th

Hey everyone. I'm sorry for being so quiet these past few days, but Internet connections were pretty crappy at both the hotel and at the convention, so I figured I'd just save the big response for when I finally got home and unpacked.

My First Convention · 3:53am April 26th

I'd been meaning to put this up earlier, but well, better late than never.

Tomorrow and through Sunday, I'll be out of town - my dad and I are going to a convention over in Beckley. Dad's going to be vending a table there to try and sell some books.
