  1. Story Monday September 20, 2021

    My guess is the "emergency plan" involves Catalina transforming into a cat-person and Rhoda making her huge. Huge cat monster.

    Yes, I know. That's a student. The figure on the left is the teacher.

    Yeah, I don't know what you're talking about either. Aside from Puritan!Teacher, there was a student behind the text box, but that was it. Also, just want to add: with a flashback coming up on Wednesday, we might be going in to the next part of this storyline. If Dan doesn't call it "Part Not 2-B", I'll be very disappointed.
  4. I don't know what got me thinking about this today, but I've had conversations about this before with friends, and I was just wondering what everyone here counts among their favorite fictional universes? For this to count, there has to be extensive world building involved, and multiple entries within it (i.e. a series, multiple films or books, cross-media, or some combination thereof). Also, I'm not counting things that are basically our world with one or two small differences - like the Fast and the Furious franchise (which would not have made my list anyway, but just as a point of reference). Things that purportedly take place in our world but contain fantastical hidden worlds alongside the familiar mundane, like Artemis Fowl, are fair game. I'll also point out that this is a "favorite universes" list, which is distinct from "favorite stories". A universe is a setting, and may or may not contain several distinct stories within it, some good, some bad. I'm not limiting this to a TOP 10 format either, since I'd probably just end up either forcing myself to come up with a full ten, thus including things that shouldn't really be on a "favorites" list, or else having to go beyond 10 by including a bunch of "honorable mentions", so the list will simply go until I don't have anything left that I like enough to want to include. And lastly, this is just for fun, entirely subjective, and mostly a result of me just liking to make and read lists of things. I'm sure that will surprise many of you to learn about me. 1. Star Wars . . . . . 2. One Piece 3. Harry Potter/Wizarding World 4. Avatar (Last Airbender/Legend of Korra) 5. Wheel of Time 6. DC 7. Marvel 8. Dragon Age 9. Song of Ice and Fire 10. Percy Jackson 11, Middle Earth 12. Narutoverse 13. Attack on Titan 14. Mortal Kombat There are some that might well make my list someday that I just haven't seen/read enough of yet, like Discworld or The Land of Ooo (from Adventure Time). If any of you know more that I should delve into, let me know! Any and all mediums.
  5. OK, I am back.

    Awesome news! Good to see you, old timer!
  6. Rewatching Friends

  7. https://www.egscomics.com/comic/balance-027 Ooh! This just screams wacky hijinks! I am very on board. Also, we all agree those first two silhouettes are Cranium and Wolf, right?
  8. The only real changes I've noticed with Firefox so far are cosmetic.

    Well that's not effing creepy AT ALL.
  11. https://www.egscomics.com/comic/balance-025 I like Knight's attitude here. He's had something of a wake-up call. Also, I can't wait to meet agents Castle and Pawn.
  12. Story Dark Times June 2020 - May 2021

    I liked the party storyline as a whole. There was a lot of good character development, and it solidified Diane not only as crucial to the narrative but also as a member of their friend group. The downside is Dan's pathological fear of ambiguity. I get wanting to make sure readers and characters understand what's going on, but he tends to go overboard on details, to the point of even taking time to explain in-story how and why certain characters are sitting where they are and how and why they switch seats. As if someone reading the comic would be completely thrown by seeing Ashley sitting on the couch in one strip and on the beanbag in a later strip. Sometimes people move.
  13. Rewatching Friends

    If I hadn't grown up watching it, I probably wouldn't have much interest in it now outside of curiosity toward a piece of TV history. That said, there are definitely still parts of it that make me literally laugh out loud.
  14. Rewatching Friends

    After watching the Friends reunion last week, I got a craving to rewatch the series. I used to love this show; I watched it all the time in syndication back in the day, but the finale happened to be the spring before I moved away to school for the first time and as a result I haven't watched it in 17 years. I am a Friends cicada. This is also the first time I've been older than any of the friends ever were through the entire run of the show, whereas before I was always younger than them except in flashbacks. I'm watching it again now on HBO max and am experiencing all kinds of thoughts and feels. I'll talk about each season as I get through them. Anyone else who wants to join in, feel free. Season One – 8.5/10, Friends in its purest form -Super Nostalgic -Tone-setting -So many establishing character moments (Monica's OCD, Chandler's snarkiness and hatred for Thanksgiving, Rachel trying to get a job, Ross losing poker on purpose, Joey's terrible play, anything Phoebe does) -Iconic stories and jokes (Joey's VD, The W.E.N.U.S., the butt double, trying to see each other's boobies/pee-pees, Nana dies twice) -Some of the most memorable guest characters (Paul the Wine Guy, Mr. Heckles, Steve the stoned guy, Jill Goodacre, Paolo, Fun Bobby, Nora Bing, Young Ethan) -Establishment of some of the best recurring characters (Jack and Judy Geller, Janice, Carol and Susan) -Rachel adjusting to independence -Ross adjusting to singlehood -Truest “young adults in the city” vibe -The monkey Top 3 episodes (ascending): 3. The One With The Birth 2.The One Where Underdog Gets Away 1. The One With All The Poker Bottom 3 episodes (descending): 3. The One With The East German Laundry Detergent 2. The One With The Evil Orthodontist 1. The One With Two Parts: Part One
