Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 13 - DB episodes 56-60 (CURRENT WEEK)

Toonami didn’t help with shit like this: https://youtu.be/s36szNpqix4 Wow, people weren't kidding when they said that Dragon Ball was advertized like a Muppet Babies esque spinoff instead of, you know, the beginning of the story . It's like it's trying to discourage people from watching. It makes m...

Re: How do you ''see'' the forum?

I see it as a bit of both, sometimes i'm just looking for some fun lighthearted discussion, other times i'm interested in going more in-depth.

Re: Endings

Listen, I don't agree with everything Moore says. I can sympathise with it but I find his possessiveness towards the characters he created to be a little hypocritical, mainly since many of his most acclaimed works build off pre-existing properties (e.g. pretty much everything he worked on at DC pre...

Re: Endings

Artistry and making money need not be at odds. Let's not forget Shakespeare wrote for money as did Dumas, as did Arthur Conan Doyle. And in the spirit of honesty, I don't put much stock in what Moore says. From what I've read the publishing side of comics aren't really that profitable, which makes ...

Re: Blameitonjorge's Lost Media Case Files Vol 1 Dragon Ball

Sadly, there's barely a piece of information given here that isn't wrong or otherwise misleading. It's clear this guy did no (or next-to-no) research on ANY of this. And despite the fact he got an interview with Tom Servo, he only did so at the last minute after encountering him on the LostMediaWik...

Blameitonjorge's Lost Media Case Files Vol 1 Dragon Ball

Posting this here because there's a good chunk of the video that talks about the Harmony Gold dub and it features an interview with none other then Tom Servo from this very forum, pretty cool I must say :clap:

Re: Endings

I'e been thinking a lot about endings lately. My views have changed A LOT over the years. Even in my 20s, I would've been super excited for DB to continue indefinitely. The same applies to other franchises. However, as I get older, the more I value closure. Trying something new, even something as t...

Came back, realized I didn't and hit the button. For that I apologize and will back out of the topic of our politica...

Re: Dragon Ball and COVID-19

As a historian who is also currently under quarantine with a respiratory infection (and kidney stones, just for fun, on top of that,) entertainment is an incredibly important industry right now. Entertainment is the only chance that these lockdowns have to succeed. It's the social lubricant that ca...

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

I enjoyed the two Unabridged episodes previewed on the Livestream well enough - I'm game to keep tuning in. I saw the one on YouTube. I enjoyed it, and I'm cautiously optimistic, but I don't know if it's necessarily my thing... I'll have to see how it gets along with the future episodes. Watching t...

Re: Dragon Ball and COVID-19

Right my bad, with everything going on right now it's easy to get wrapped up in politics and forget to stay on topic. Anyways getting back to DB, i'm sure COVID shouldn't slow down whatever Toei has in the works for the franchise for too long given that Japan have been pretty lucky so far(well aside...

Re: Dragon Ball and COVID-19

Highly unlikely, the youth vote won't be needed as long as the older black folks vote for Biden, which they almost certainly will. If all it took were the votes of old black people, Hillary Clinton would be president now. Saying we don't need the youth vote to beat Trump is pretty much inviting ano...

Re: Dragon Ball and COVID-19

I'm sure Trump will beat Biden and stack the Supreme Court, leading to a real "Dark Ages" of sort for the next 40 years. Assuming that Biden is going to run against Trump. The Primaries are not even over yet and most of the voting got pushed back until May. People can't give up and assume that Sand...

Re: Dragon Ball and COVID-19

Most republicans certainly. And most democrats too. Sadly, corporate interests and money have found their way into almost every aspect and crevice of our electoral systems. Unfortunately, neither main political party is innocent of corruption and corporate influences. https://thehill.com/business-a...

Re: Dragon Ball and COVID-19

Not EVERY single politician is deep in corporate pockets though and there are plenty of businesses who won't want to take the massive PR hit from re-opening in the middle of a pandemic, so i'm not too worried. My governor(Pritzker) certainly is no fan of Trump and is not at all keen on the idea of ...

Re: Dragon Ball and COVID-19

Let's be real here, if he made an official announcement that it was ok to reopen businesses and go back to work, the number of companies that aren't going to jump on it are very few. It's up to each individual state to make their own rules to hold the line until (hopefully) Joe Biden can be voted i...

I don't know about anywhere else, but if Trump goes through with whatever he's been talking about these last 2 days, then the US is going to make Italy and China look good. I just hope congress and governors can sideline him and do what's right fo...

Re: Dragon Ball and COVID-19

Personally I don't see AMC going under for having to close for a few weeks/months, I think that's highly unlikely. Smaller chains and independent theaters/movie palaces might have more of an uphill struggle though.
