  1. They took down Simpsons World, and like, sure, getting The Simpsons ad-free on Disney+ is cool and all, but they don’t have the dvd commentary tracks on Disney+ and that was 90% of what I used Simpsons World for.

          • The plan is to eventually have every possible recurring setpiece modeled in a 3D space using shaders that flatten it out as much as possible and textures that make it look like an oil painting so that I never ever ever ever have to draw another background for the rest of my life.

                    "Yeah, ehmm, Mr Ranger Solo sir, Could you please get this package of legal computer components to my friend in California ? Why no, I do not object to haveing it being transported in between the cocaine and MDMA."

                    P.S. I do not know any Chinese Smuggler names, I do know that the Solo Star Wars Movie was renamed to Ranger Solo in China.

                  • @scribus Isn't that just a fancy way of saying 'odd things that are related to the topic'. Such as pretty much everything used to make fun of the situation in every abridged show ever.

                    For some reason I have to think of this thing

                    http://rainbowdash.net/url/875304

                    "The Gods are showing us the truth about our past, I give you our sexy ancient Egyptian ancestors"

                    You know the rest.

                    I love oddical topicness, or oddness topical... or... well now both words and all variations thereof just sound made up to me.

                  • @drinkingpony I had meant less "odd things" and more "things which are relevant, but to an unexpected degree." Which probably has a 90% overlap, anyway.

                • I just had the new She-Ra explained to me by a die-hard fan of the old series

                  Essentially she thinks it is like taking a beloved franchise that she feels she has supported thoughout the years, by buying merch and all. Someone got their hands on that IP because essentially you can not 'make' a new IP work in the modern oversaturated world. Then added so many new borderline cringe modern 'themes' to it till it pretty much only resembled the beloved She-Ra only in name. I mean For Fox's Sake (I choose to believe she actually said 'For Fox's Sake') they put a first draft D&D character into the show for crying out loud.

                  Imagine your grandmother learned you how to make granny's apple pie, and then 20 years later she asks you to make her some apple pie just like how she used to like it. Only to have a conversation not even 5 seconds after gramma tasting it about "WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU TOOK OUT THE ASBESTOS ?!?"

                  Strange woman, but made some sense.

                  I only know 1 person who likes new She-Ra.

                        Yes, in text form DWI and DUI are faster. I'll give you that.
