Scary-Crayon updated, JL & Wolverine, shit.
Category: SC Updates

Yep! It'll actually have been updated for about three or so hours by the time of this posting, but I made dinner and stuff first. The main course -- a meatless spicy "chik'n" patty sandwich with fat free ranch dressing and banana sauce -- wasn't all that interesting (conceptually speaking, I mean; it tasted fine), but the sides I made -- a small bowl of microwaved frozen potato rounds mashed with two teaspoons of sugar and half a teaspoon of ground cinnamon; a mixture of corn and pancake batter fried in oil (of course) -- were pretty neat stuff. Last night I fried a mixture of bean thread and pancake batter, which turned out like a crispy pancake with noodle filling. Great stuff! Pancake batter is awesome for frying.

Anyway, tonight's Scary-Crayon update brings us the third installment of Dusty Plastic HELL. I know I promised it yesterday, but I got kinda sidetracked. Forgive me. Please?

The lateness of this piece means that you should expect the second TMNT anime review on Monday or Tuesday. I'm not sure how I'll go about posting it, though -- given that a good percentage of the people who read the first page of the multipage articles never make it to the second (and the ones who make it to the second never make it to the third, and so on), I'm considering posting each page separately so it doesn't seem so overwhelming to some readers. But then, once all of the segments were posted it wouldn't make much of a difference, so it's not like that would matter in the long maybe I should just post the complete article at once like I'd normally do. Presently, I'm leaning towards the latter option. I might feel differently if I viewed SC as a business, or felt like I should be trying to manipulate people into reading the pieces -- but I don't. SC is for fun, and while the articles are written for the entertainment of all parties involved, if people don't read them the whole way through I'm inclined to shrug and say, "Oh well." I'd hope that they would, but I don't see the point in trying to trick them to do so, since it's not like I stand to profit either way. I mean yeah, I hope that someday (soon) some newspaper or magazine editor happens to swing by the site and say, "Wow, this guy needs to be writing for us!" that's not why I do the site. Etc. If I really wrote the site in order to impress people and to appeal to mainstream audiences in general, I wouldn't be trying to kill you all with chocolate chip cheese cookie experiments (assuming I post the TMNT anime review all at once, expect that piece to follow it sometime next week). 😉

And De of Retroactive Continuity has written a response (cleverly titled "Re-Butt-als) to last time's continued musings about the Justice League and shit. For the most part (perhaps thankfully!) it seems that we've reached the endpoint of the discussion, so I don't have a whole lot to say by way of reply, except that I was definitely one of the Wolverine fanboys De mentions. I loved the guy. I think it had a lot to do with his height, which is why I'm not too keen on the Wolverine of the recent X-Men films (which I despise with a passion for many reasons; Wolverine is a minor one) and won't even touch this one from Ultimate X-Men or whatever it's called. He's like 6'1" in these, but in the old comics he was 5'3" -- and he still kicked more ass than everyone else combined. I've been shat on by lots of people for various aspects of my appearance during my life, but my height is probably the thing people have been most vocal about (whereas the majority of people are at least cautious regarding certain other things, they seem to have no qualms whatsoever about rejecting and looking down on people because they're "too short"). So when on the old X-Men cartoon on FOX, Wolverine snikt! out the claws, pointed at Sabretooth, and shouted, "You always did like pushin' around people smaller than you. Well I'm smaller...TRY PUSHIN' ME!!!!" I was right there too. Kick his ass good, Wolverine.

And who wants to bet that my suggestion for the real reason behind the robot uprising appears in a sci-fi film soon, or at least in a gory slasher flick about a janitor running amok on an Ivy League campus? You haven't seen nasty toilets until you've seen the way the wealthy treat them, because they're used to having butlers come in after them in case they forgot to flush. In fact, let me dig up a gif I made after waking from one particularly harrowing dream I had at Yale. Yes, the toilets were so disgusting that I regularly had dreams with images like the following:


Clearly, if they ever decide to make such a film, I should be on the writing team. And thanks to De, I've learned a new word. Yay for new words! Can you say "coprophilic"?

Thanks for the laughs and the contributions to the discussion, De. I was a Philosophy major, after all, so I enjoy any opportunity to exercise my "Vulcan-like logic." And thanks to Anon, too. 🙂

Alrighty then, I'm going to (try to) watch Dawn of the Dead now -- the replacement dvd Anchor Bay sent over arrived today. It seems to be in working order -- or at least it doesn't suffer from the same defect that the other five did -- but I'm going to sit through the film from the beginning to make absolutely sure. And I wanted to see the movie anyway, so here we go. Until next time!
