    Episode 233 — Space Jam LIVE!

    Oh yeah. I think I got 3rd place once in my long distance event. Enough to get my '00 numbers for a letterman jacket, which I never owned. So I just have two 0 patches in a box somewhere. A fitting number for my life lol A friend and I used to rent NBA Jam for Sega Genesis a lot and I remember having fun playing it despite my lack of interest in basketball, so I can only imagine how popular it was with actual basketball fans. This makes me want to find a copy to buy lol

    Episode 233 — Space Jam LIVE!

    I forgot to answer this, but just a quick summation of my childhood sports, etc.: Dance (Tap and Acrobatics) Softball (Outfielder) Bowling Karate Track (Long Jump and some long distance thing I forgot) Can't say I was particularly good at any of these lol ------------ Last comment on Space Jam, which I sort of mentioned on Letterboxd... To be quite honest, I really found the talent-stolen basketball players failing at being human to be far funnier than any of the cartoon antics with the Looney Tunes. Completely failing at DRINKING WATER and walking into the door frame at the hospital got actual laughs out of me. I know it doesn't make sense since those though aren't directly related to the talent required to play basketball, but I DID NOT CARE because it was actually funny to me. I wish there had been more of those jokes throughout the movie. I was far more invested in these poor saps than anything else. Also I never noticed in the hospital hall scene that Muggsy was fake walking until it was mentioned in the podcast. But it's more like I KNEW he wasn't really walking, my brain just thought that he was in a wheel chair, because I didn't notice the shoulder movement.

    Oof, yeah, that's true that's the origin of the name. Could do without that specific one though. First one I went too was Six Flags Great America in the Chicago area with my family as a kid. But that was just sad because I wanted to go on the roller coasters but my cousins were too small and the adults didn't want to go. As for the Six Flags here, I liked the Superman coaster. Haven't been in a good few years though. It's expensive.

    I wanted to mention something similar about Six Flags too lol. Also been to Six Flags Over Texas a couple times and WB/DC characters and merch are quite popular. I have also talked to someone who used to work there as the Taz mascot and while I won't call it "slavery", working in those things under the conditions of the hot Texas summer definitely sounds like torture. I think he had some story too about someone vomiting inside the costume.

    Yep! Hulu is bringing back Animaniacs. I belieeeeve it's supposed to start this year, but I haven't heard an airdate. They're bringing back the core voice cast and I think the guy who wrote the songs on the original show. Rob Paulsen has some details on the reboot idea proposal in his autobiography he released this past year, I need to get back to reading it. I got to meet Rob Paulsen and Maurice LaMarche (voices of Pinky and The Brain and so many more) at a convention in 2014 and they were absolute sweethearts! LaMarche voiced Pepe le Pew in Space Jam... I've technically met one of the Space Jam voice actors...

    Thanks! And now I know I messed up his shirt sleeves. Whoops lol What a weird episode. I feel like I might've seen it long ago. I guess I can see why it was banned, but it also seems kinda fitting for a bunch of kids trying to sneak a bit of alcohol to be "cool". I was more of an Animaniacs person when that came out. I'm looking forward to the reboot of that!

    CAMERON, WHY?! On that note, while cartoon physics can apply to Jordon in Looney Tunes Land, it doesn't explain how he was able to be sucked into a golf hole in the real world! How many times should he have died in this movie??

    Just leaving a quick doodle from memory of THE BEST BUNNY before I go to bed. I'm done spamming for today I promise.

    Episode 233 — Space Jam LIVE!

    Researching Lola Bunny and her character in The Looney Tunes Show is pretty much a complete 180 of her original Space Jam version. Just watch the first 1:50 of this I don't know how to feel The Looney Tunes wiki states her character in New Looney Tunes is a bit more clever, but I tried watching a clip and I couldn't... I couldn't make it.

    Episode 233 — Space Jam LIVE!

    I was 14 when this movie came out. I'm pretty sure I saw it in theater and at least once or twice on VHS or TV, but had not watched it since the 90s. I remember it being huge, but even as someone who loved Looney Tunes during the 90s (and Tiny Toons and Animaniacs), I just was never that huge a fan of Space Jam. I'm guessing it's because I am not a basketball fan and I didn't find Lola Bunny attractive. I do remember being shocked to learn later that "Fly Like an Eagle" by Seal was a COVER.

    Episode 233 — Space Jam LIVE!

    I'm going to posit that the only way this movie could make sense concerning the mash-up of real VS toon worlds is if people of the real world DO know that the Looney Tunes exist and live beneath the earth to supply endless hours of cartoon entertainment for TV. This would be THE ONLY reason why Michael, his children, Wayne Knight and Bill Murray did NOT freak out or even question the existence of the Looney Tunes as actual living beings they were interacting with. I think the director missed a huge opportunity to reference HIS OWN COMMERCIAL by having Michael and Bugs be colleagues from endorsing Nike. Bugs could have just met up with Michael, been like, "Hey, you remember how Marvin the Martian was trying to steal those Air Jordons? Well, we kinda have the same thing going on, except it's 'real' aliens and they want to steal US!" They could've even shown a CLIP of the original commercial. By the way, the full length version of that commercial is actually 1 min 30 secs.

    Musical Mondays Week 83 Yellow Submarine

    Thanks to your comment I just spent the last 15-20 minutes comparing the songs from both stereo Sgt Pepper and Yellow Sub albums, the Songtrack, and a bit of the mono Sgt Pepper's on youtube lol. I feel like the mono is the most striking version. The stereo Sgt Pepper's, and even the Yellow Sub soundtrack just feel like they have some odd balance choices. While the Yellow Submarine Songtrack IS still stereo, I feel like they fixed a lot of the balance issues so it's closer to the mono version. Not quite there, but it has a much better sound than the other stereo releases. Bless whoever remastered the Songtrack. I'm not sure if that remaster is what's used on the blu-ray. Our TV sound system isn't really good enough for me to tell anyway. Also side note, was disappointed in the captions on the blu-ray. A few errors, plus anytime something like "I think I burnt me finger." came up they wrote "me" as "my", and no attempt to caption Old Fred's frantic yelling until he got to the "blue meanies!" part, even though you clearly hear "submarine" and "explosions" before that EACH TIME.

    I just read this on the Yellow Submarine article on wikipedia and I think we dodged a bullet

    Had to draw a quick Jeremy, because he's honestly the only one who matters.

    Musical Mondays Week 83 Yellow Submarine

    Yeah, I agree with that. The Peter Max-like artstyle isn't exactly the easiest on the eyes, though I find it fun. The characters, including The Beatles, aren't particularly cute in it. It does lend itself to the surreal settings at least. While watching last night I joked that the artists were asked to draw their nightmares lol The imagination does impress me though. I'd love to know more about the painting process for "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds". I think for me the Sea of Science's "Only a Northern Song" is the least interesting, visually and just... in general. Doesn't seem like there's much science to it lol

    Musical Mondays Week 83 Yellow Submarine

    I rewatched this last night and my roommate had a hard time getting through it, but I still love it lol Yeah, the stories is pretty mediocre, but the animation and bizarre creativity that went into it is really fun to me, maybe because I'm an artist lol. I'd say this definitely introduced me to a few of the lesser known songs too. Again there were originally two versions of this movie, as the US version had the "Hey, Bulldog" sequence cut. I originally saw it on VHS from a movie rental so I missed out on that. I finally got to see it when it was finally rereleased in full in 1999 and I think it's probably my favorite part now (and one of my favorite songs). The four-headed dog is pretty cute somehow. This also inspired me to reupload my old Yellow Submarine website, so here's that in mostly unedited embarrassment. Please don't share, it is not good. XD;
  18. Oh wait, that's what I was thinking of that I haven't seen alksjdf;ljao;wuhrfth (I am not feeling well, please excuse me) So no I have not.
  19. This is the only Beatles movie I have not seen, and I'm still not sure I'm ready for it lol But I totally own Yellow Sub, Help!, and A Hard Day's Night. Also not a fan of AtU lol
  20. Somehow I figured you would be lol
  21. OKAY! Back with my pick! Decided to go with one that's been on my list for a while. Something that has been near and dear to my heart for a long time. So without further ado, I present to you:
  22. Oh! I wasn't ready! I have an idea of what I want to pick, but I need to uh, check on something first. If you can handle waiting a bit lol (I promise I will post it today!) Btw, I was way behind *coughbecauseI'mlazycough* but I got the MM spreadsheet updated!

    Episode 226.5 - Minisode 226.5

    Wait, Paul is a contestant?? I need to catch up! We watched the holiday season last year because we saw Jason was on it, and I flipped my shit when I saw one of the contestants was my fave writing teacher from college (not in the ep with Jason though). Pretty much binged the whole thing in a day. Such a good show!

    Episode 227 - Double Dragon: LIVE!

    According to what we see in the movie, the Soul half lets a person turn into a ghost being who can possess other people's bodies, and the Body half makes the user impervious to physical harm. There's zero information indicating that the Body half can possess bodies, and it wouldn't make sense. Jimmy is just a frigging idiot at that moment. And on that topic, the use of the medallions bothers me, specifically the Body half, because as we saw, it made it so Billy could survive crashing through a concrete wall (I assume they were going for concrete since there was rebar?). A person normally wouldn't have enough force to break through a wall like that, so I can only assume the Body medallion made Billy's body rock hard. But then a moment later Shuko-Jimmy punches off bits of the wall bare-handed, which I don't think he should be able to do since there's nothing indicating that the Soul half grants physical superhuman abilities. Likewise, Billy procedes to beat the shit out of his possessed brother. The one who has a magical body strong enough to crash through concrete unscathed beats up his own brother whose only "power" is just that Shuko is controlling him. This should have been the fight to the death. Jimmy should be dead lol

    Episode 227 - Double Dragon: LIVE!

    The whole thing is just very 90s fashion-wise. Hers makes me think someone tried to do a sort of custom casual-aerobics outfit. It has a somewhat athletic feel. I didn't get why the Lee Bros tried to look at her butt when she was picking up the gangnet device when she first appears with the Power Corp. She's wearing that long coat, what do you expect to see? Lol Knowing now the, uh, end of the game, it struck me more how both bros got excited too get a look at her ass, even though Jimmy acted less interested at times, maybe under the right conditions they would fight to the death over her! Where is that sequel?!
