I think I posted this on one of the threads when it came out, but I can’t remember which one…
Searching for the vid link sitewide didnt turn up any results for me…
I could be mistaken? I know I watched it when it came out, and thought that I either found it here, or posted it here… I’ve been wrong before!
Either way, thanks for posting it. It’s a great interview with @doctorow!
Hey if anyone had previously posted it, it would most likely have been yourself.
Just sayin; I did do a search, but that doesn’t necessarily mean anything - BB’s search feature isn’t the most reliable, in my personal experience.
It’s really not…
Searching for “chokepoint capitalism” brought this up for me.
I searched for the actual vid link itself.
tl;dr: JULY 28th!
Has anyone seen this parody version of Good Omens yet? Apparently the man himself shows up!
All episodes streaming as of this evening:
I am a fool for cartoons. O watched two new shows tonight “Unicorn: Warriors Eternal” and “Poor Devil”.
“Poor Devil” is a Spanish cartoon about a relutant Antichrist. It sounds a little derivative, and maybe It is, as I only watched one episode. But I liked this one called “Greenland”. In Hell there are no cats. If there are cats, it is not Hell.
“Unicorn: Warriors Eternal” is the brand New project by Genndy Tartakovski. I love Mr. Tartakovski style and this cartoon didn’t disappoint me. But I think the story is a little, I don’t know how to explain what I feel. The adventures of a trio of magic warriors stuck in a wheel of incarnations didn’t hook me.
I also watched one episode of the second season of “Star Wars Visions”. It was made by the Irish cartoon studio Cartoon Saloon and you can recognize their style as soon It begins. It is Very beautiful.
On Amazon Prime - which is the only subscription service I still have, sweet!
In between naps and headaches (fucking COVID) I’ve been streaming Designing Women on Amazon Prime.
It holds up surprisingly well!
It’s racist in that the only Black character is an ex con, but also pretty aware in that they address systemic racism all over the place.
And the main characters are 4 single women who (so far, at least) don’t give up their own interests or careers for a man.
So, a decade before Friends, more woke than Friends. Same genre as Cheers, way less sexist than Cheers.
And quite funny.
If you’d like to keep that warm fuzzy feeling, do not google info on the main character, Julia Sugarbaker (Dixie Carter). From Wikipedia:
Carter was a registered Republican who described her political views as libertarian. She was interviewed by Bill O’Reilly along with Pat Boone at the 2000 Republican National Convention, and once jokingly described herself as “the only Republican in show business”. However, Carter’s Designing Women character, Julia Sugarbaker, was known for her liberal political views and related speeches, for which she was nicknamed “The Terminator.” Carter disagreed with many of her character’s beliefs, and made a deal with the show’s producers that if Julia delivered a “Terminator” monologue, she would get to sing a song in a future episode.
Blah. That’s a shame. I love the character she plays, anyway.
