Anonymous asked: Remember that "Code of Hero and humanity" post you wrote? The part of that post where it tells how humanity represents the Autobot's second chance at doing good? Watching Age of Extinction with that thought in mind is both very sad (in the case of the humans that hunt down the Transformers) and very happy (in the case of Cade and crew). Just something to think about.

irongoldie asked: Why do you think Rich Evans is a hack fraud? Or is this some Red Letter Media in-joke i don't know about? (I only watch the Best of the Worst stuff).

Ah! The “Hack Fraud” thing is a RLM joke from the Mr. Plinkett stuff, mostly the updates and promo videos where he refers to Rich as a hack fraud and also on twitter from time to time.

I would never for real accuse to Rich as a fraud! I love Rich… But, not as much as Jay

Ah, okay.  Been a while since I’ve watched any of the Plinkett stuff, so I forgot all that.  To be honest, the only things of theirs I truly enjoy is the Plinkett stuff and Best of the Worst.  Plinkett, because it is the most well put together, the funniest, and actually does go in depth. Best of the Worst because I love bad movies.  I find Half in the Bag dull.  Honestly, they were funnier and more insightful to me when they did the Plinkett “gimmick” but I understand why they don’t do it anymore.

I understand. I love Half in the Bag though, even though I don’t always agree with their opinions on certain films, I always get interesting food for thought.

Plus the relationship between Mike and Jay is everything I value in my real life friends: drinking too much, being lazy, and complaining about the media and things.

Mike:
It's a ridiculous premise if you really think about it. It's stupid! But if it's so stupid, then you can't complain about how Splinter becomes a ninja master, cause it's so dumb!
Rich:
Alright, there's a cartoon going on right now, on Nickelodeon; it's a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon. And Splinter is a fully fleshed-out, thought-out, realized character that has emotions and a back-story.

Obviously, comparing other pieces of entertainment media to the incredibly high standards Rescue Bots has set is pointless since it is completely impossible to top this sheer level of magnificence

The US military interposes itself into an ancient conflict between combatants its leaders understand poorly if at all, in response to a devastating attack by one of the antagonists on American soil. The best efforts of the most dedicated common soldier fail to resolve or even to contain the battle, and ultimately make things significantly worse, partly because their commanders insist on a delusionally misguided strategy, and partly because high-tech firepower is simply the wrong tool for the job in the first place. Experts in the relevant fields are sidelined, ignored, and even treated like criminals while the authorities make bullets and bombs their first and only resort. And in the end, there’s no practical solution but to get out of the way while the old enemies duke it out— even if getting out of the way means accepting the risk of becoming collateral casualties in the fight. Oh— and along the way, the expected smashing of famous skyscrapers comes packaged with whole squadrons of airplanes falling out of the sky and exploding on impact against the crumbling concrete towers. Did Edwards and Borenstein deliberately set out to render thirteen years’ worth of military, diplomatic, and foreign-policy fiasco in the Middle East as kaiju eiga? I don’t know. But I do know that the atom bomb is yesterday’s nightmare, and that each era tends to get the monsters it needs in turn.

Anonymous asked: Thoughts on Liberty's Kids?

I like it. It’s a solid show with a good original cast and it makes learning about history… like… fun and engaging and stuff. There’s a lot I don’t get out of it because, well, I’m a Canadian. So my history involves more beaver skinning and snowshoeing. But still, Liberty’s Kids is a nifty little show.

Anonymous asked: Did you ever feel like there was something more between Lady Shiva and Katana at one point? I mean, just the way Shiva was talking about Bethanie made bells go off in my head.

Eh, I think Shiva just likes to get all up in people’s business.

Anonymous asked: First things off, wasn`t Tatsu`s date with Dane just downright awkward?She just looked so incredibly uncomfortable. Anyway, to the real question: How do you think the Kobrana relationship would have played out if Jason wasn`t killed?

To your first point: most definitely. It was a good contrast to the way she’d behaved when dating Jason. Tatsu can appreciate romance, but she’s genuinely gotta like the guy.

On point two, I had assumed Jason would be turned into Kobra at some point (potentially by Saphire Stagg’s science team) and be horrified by this turn of events… only for Tatsu to still accept him anyways and he joins up with the other Outsiders to help Batman and Katana fight crime. Plus, then I would’ve gotten to see a cool snake-guy. I guess this will never happen of course, but it’s fun to speculate.
