so what the gently caress killed the webcomics “renaissance” exactly? like a couple dozen creators who could actually draw and craft a joke managed to gain some prominence, fastforward and now the genre is beholden to the dystopian social media reblogging trends of poo poo worse than newspaper comics ever were

somehow phil lamarr was convinced that the goblins kickstarter animation was a viable project

what i'm saying is we can easily trick him into believing there's an official MadTV reboot and he'll be all in

picked up the slack for Disney during the 80s at least for well done animated features, the “nobility” of being a market contester to them is debatable though

DC should go full camp except for Batman who shoul still be the sourfaced angry grim loner from the Nolan movies but also the explicit bad guy. He no longer makes sense a hero. Make the Joker is just a dude that likes to play elaborate pratical jokes on the rich and powerful but no one ever gets hurt. Eventually Batman arrests him with extreme and excessive force.

this was pretty much Batman: White Knight which explicitly tries to position Joker as a leftist hero after Batman beats him half to death after some harmless radikewl skateboarding shenanigans (yes the Joker shreds in this Elseworld story). It’s also not good and is ruined by assuaging to police and good billionaires.

the wikipedia page for this is hilarious - the synopsis reads like it was a book report

In her backstory, Mclean and her father have moved three times in the last two years because of her dad's new job at EAT, Inc. With each of the moves, Mclean decides to take on different personas. Lakeview is their fourth move. Mclean is quizzed as to which persona she would pick—whether it would be "the perky rah-rah girl, black-clad drama queen, or student government joiner". But as she begins school, she forgets about all those personas and starts to be herself and attracts new friends, plus a new romance. Gus is trying to rebuild a restaurant called the Luna Blu, which is described as a "Contemporary Italian and old-fashioned good"

I do enjoy eating up some good ol’ fashioned good at the Italian restaurant run by some cucked Mick

Little leery because that guys got an anime avatar but otherwise lmao

did a Reverse GIS and :catstare:

quote:

Description and screenshots don't give a full impression of the game- it's a 'lolicon' dating simulator with lots of panty shots, sexual scenes and stuff that scirts on the borderline of being classified as 'nudity' by technicality alone.
The 'all-ages version' censorship patch is incorrectly named, this is very much not suitable for under 18s. The 'censorship' literally just whites out the screen during sex scenes, making them dialogue only. (With full voiceacting!) And it does nothing to remove gigantic cameltoe scenes or bare chests on these seemingly-underage characters.
I have nothing against people who enjoy that sort of game, but I'm asexual and this was a horrible surprise! Don't waste your money if you're expecting something like Recettear instead of Huniepop.

the leia seen was all disney. rion johnson wanted to kill leia off as part of his larger attempt to move the material forward away from a slavish devotion to the past. they even had a chance to keep his original cut where she died after fisher's death and chose not to!

remembering how years back Michael Eisner wanted to recast Jason Ritter for 8 Simples Rules for Dating My Daughter after he died and rightfully got poo poo for such a callous solution for an utimately forgettable sitcom, now gently caress it, Disney can make draconian decisions like that in franchises with way more cultural pull like nothing but wokely.

The only problem I had with The Boys was the idea that the company that handles the supers would let them anywhere near an evangelist who touts gay conversion therapy in 2019, when they're supposed to be these antiseptic, meticulously focus grouped corporate products. That feels like a an artifact of older source material. They should be #woke brands. If anything, one of them is getting sent to Pride.

edit: was typing up the above while this was posted

it was muddled in the comics too, like there was one hero who had to apologize to the public for being gay and another who was made into the gay friendly hero for PR purposes (while also being a massive homophobe on top of that).

this is a storyline in the comics actually. almost like Ennis had an idea what Bryan Singer was up to too!
