  1.  So the Banana Splits, that 70s show with the fursuiting band... is being turned into a horror movie that's pretty obviously inspired by FNAF. AHAHAHA.

      I'm kinda surprised Hanna-Barbera gave the okay to this.

      "So you're saying we're never gonna find a new audience from kids these days cause no one likes people in animal costumes anymore and prefer to play video games like FNAF???"

       

      "Oh well. If ya can't beat'em, join'em. It's not like anybody remembers that show exists to get their childhood ruined."

      Kids and YouTubers already got FNAF. They don’t really want a FNAF knockoff, and honestly looking at this...Scott was right to thumbs down the script lol

      @KHCast The success of several FNAF clones would indicate your thesis is incorrect.

      They’re “successful” but it’s akin to CoD follow ups from other companies. FNAF is still the one the general market gives a damn about and knows about regardless. 

      Besides, if SyFy is expecting this to grab the FNAF players and YouTube viewers...can’t really get why they’d think that outside that it has animatronics that are spooky

      Word has it the film's using an edited version of an early FNaF movie script that Scott rejected. Let that put some things into perspective

      This is really weird...

      @Vertical Snoop [D.K.] Gee, whyever would such an incredible movie script by such genius writers ever be rejected by Scott?

      Sarcasm aside, I get it. Early drafts are kind of supposed to suck; they’re where you get all of your ideas out in the open before you can be totally sure how good they are and how to best go about executing them. But you generally want to rework your early drafts at some point, because late drafts aren’t really supposed to suck. And this film looks like it just used the Find and Replace tool to replace FNAF references with Banana Splits references.

      @Your Vest Friend I was going to say the same thing at first, but then I remembered that they also gave the approval on those gritty Flintstones/Scooby-Doo/etc. DC comics a while back.

  2. The FNAF movie might be languishing in development Hell because Scott keeps rejecting every idea put before him, but... there's this. There is a rumor that it developed out of an early draft of the FNAF film that was rejected, but whether that's true or not, well... my God, it exists. And since everyone is comparing it to FNAF, I figured it appropriate to link it here. I feel sorry for all the 70s and 80s kids who grew up with the actual show. This is both an extremely bad and an extremely brilliant idea.
  3. It occurs to me Sonic Revolution doesn't keep track of its attendees year by year anywhere, apparently o.o

  4. https://www.cnn.com/2019/05/29/politics/roy-moore-alabama-donald-trump-jr/index.html Roy Moore and Trump Jr. got into it over Twitter. While Moore's since deleted his Tweets, I can't help but think Jr. just made the Alabama Senate race personal. And Moore is the favorite for the GOP nomination based on polling. And Roy Moore being the GOP nominee is the best chance Democrats have of taking that seat for 6 years. Jones has defected to the GOP on a lot of things, but he's also stuck with the Democrats on a lot of things too. He is the best option Democrats will get from Alabama. Where Moore is likely to get swat on the ass is the fact Republican voters are actually very good at rejecting candidates with serious ethical failings. It's why we all too often get Democrats who suddenly win a red seat, but then immediately lose it next race. Republican voters tend punish (non-Presidential) candidates for sexual immorality in particular.
  5. http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2019/05/nevada-governor-vetoes-national-popular-vote-bill.html Nevada Dem. Governor Sisolak has vetoed the state's bill that would have added Nevada to the National Popular Vote Compact. He cited the argument that Nevada would simply be ignored in national elections because it is small, whereas right now it benefits from being a swing state. It's also an argument that falls apart under increased scrutiny: people scream about Texas and California and New York, but those large states are hardly hive minds, and their political minorities will come out in full force if the national popular vote becomes a thing. Candidates will have to cast a wide net to win a truly national election.
  6. I like how I've slowly but surely started turning my Sonic convention posse into my furcon posse, it's just magical.

  7. Got to act out that SA2 scene with a prominent fur recently. I was suspicious a Las Vegas furcon was in the works. Someone with insider info kind of leaked it. It was basically:

    "So how did you know we were putting on a Vegas furcon?"

    And I was just "BECAUSE YOU JUST TOLD ME, FOX BOY."

    1. Polkadi~♪

      Polkadi~♪

      That is a very specific line to use in a very specific context.

      I am shocked you made that work.

  8. Biggest Little FurCon had a swag item exclusive to staff and volunteers and it was so wholesome. Sponsor and up attendees got a red bottle with a heart on it. Volunteers and staff got a blue bottle with the Tree of Life on it. SYMBOLISM.

  9. https://thehill.com/homenews/state-watch/443715-maine-senate-passes-bill-that-would-give-electoral-college-votes-to So in the span of a month, three states - Nevada, Oregon, and Maine - have all passed the National Popular Vote Compact in one house of their legislatures. Holy crap, this might actually happen before the 2020 election. Ten bucks says the Supreme Court decides to "stay" the legislation though. Even though the Constitution is VERY clear states can do whatever they want with their electoral votes.
  10. So. Anyone going to Furry Weekend Atlanta in 6 days? They've got a Mystery Skulls concert!

  11. https://www.cnn.com/2019/04/15/politics/bill-weld-2020-trump/index.html While the Democratic camp is currently overrun by opportunists, the Republican camp just got interesting. Former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld has announced he will be running for the Presidency on the GOP ticket, making him Trump's first primary challenger. Weld is a more libertarian flavor of Republican, having been consistently pro-choice, pro-marijuana legalization and pro-LGBT, while being fiscally conservative. He is confident he could take the nomination with support from independents. As a cherry on top, were Weld to become President, he would steal Trump's title of being the oldest inaugurated President, being 75 on Inauguration Day. Weld realistically has a tough primary ahead of him as most conservatives solidly back Trump, and no President has been outvoted in the primaries since the 1880s. But he could still give Trump a tough time if he draws in independent votes, and Presidents who face a tough primary have good odds of losing re-election, as happened with Ford, Carter, and H.W. Bush.
  12. My friend showed me clips of the Rough and Tumble segment in the IDW Sonic annual and oh my god their facial expressions are so precious in each panel

  13. Boom Sonic: *hanging from a ledge* "Help me, brother!"

    Movie Sonic: "Long... live... the King."

  14. I've been turning all my friends into coyotes lately and it's fantastic

  15. This movie is Huehuecoyotl's next big prank on all of us mortals

      So a fellow Mayonaka no Occult Koumuin watcher I see.

      @AdventChild While I have checked that out recently, I've been studying Huehuecoyotl (the actual Aztec deity) for close to a year :P

  16. Sonic being able to generate an EMP reminds me of the part in Sonic the Comic where Super Sonic unintentionally destroys the Eggman Empire by unleashing a planetwide EMP

    1. Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      On that note: Sonic having EMP powers is lulzy because that means anything Eggman can throw at him is worthless.

      Barring that non-electronic mech that Eggman put together in the Archie strip so the Iron Queen couldn't control it.

  17. Trump is out praising Robert E. Lee again. Remember, any time someone praises Lee or the Confederacy's officers, ask them about General Longstreet. The fact they either don't know who he is, or assume he's the reason Lee lost, will serve to confirm the racist background of the neo-Confederate movement. For the record, General Longstreet joined the Republican Party (the Party of the North at the time) post-war, supported Reconstruction, and led a black militia against a white supremacist mob on top of it. If there is any Confederate officer deserving of praise, it would be him. But of course, he receives practically none. Goes to show what neo-Confederate thinking is really about.
  18. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/08/21/upshot/home-ownership-nimby-bipartisan.html?module=inline So Ben Carson finally had a good idea, and wanted to change federal housing policies so communities get funding cut if they don't get rid of tight zoning laws, veto power given to homeowners to block new development, etc. It's a policy in many urban areas that has strangled the ability to build new homes, which is why places like California are so ridiculously expensive (though I'm sure Carson and co. would claim it's the taxes, but it's actually a mix of taxes, market pressure, and wealthy people restricting housing). There's a bipartisan opposition to it... among well-to-do people. This, folks, is why the victory of the left will not come from the suburbs. The urban and rural working classes must find their common ground and join forces to destroy an oppressive elite. Social justice and economic justice must go together for full effectiveness. Economic justice without social justice creates a welfare state where only the majority group is taken care of. Social justice without economic justice creates a system where there's still enormous poverty, but hey, at least half the world's richest people are women of color. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/23/upshot/2020-democrats-court-renters.html?utm_source=pocket-newtab Meanwhile, Senators Warren, Harris, and Booker are all pushing for rent reform. Harris and Booker have introduced bills to create a tax credit for renters. You know the right is running scared now because Democrats are becoming more and more openly left on economics. Rent control. Free tuition. Universal healthcare. See the prior paragraph though. For left populism to win, it's going to need a strong base of rural supporters in order to get the necessary Senate seats. Democrats would do well to really target red states for left wing ballot initiatives. When there's no R or D on a choice, "conservative" voters are very good at passing things like universal healthcare or raising the minimum wage. And as red state voters put these things into practice, Republican politicians will feel the squeeze and be crazy to vote against them.
  19. Dogbomb inspired me to start taking better care of myself. I've drastically cut back the amount of creamer I use for my coffee. Oh God, the taste is so strong now.

    1. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      I need to do that too. I've gained quite a bit of weight since I started using more creamer. I might just cut out coffee altogether.

  20. So. My old name is officially banished. *starts playing Fist Bump* It's a brand new dayyyy! We have turned the paaaage!

  21. With a snap of his paw, Tani banished Ogilvie to non-existence with such speed even Zen-Oh was impressed.

    1. Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      The moniker didn't stay gone for long. 

  22. Been debating retiring the Ogilvie moniker. It is a product of a different time of my life. :v

    1. DreamSaturn

      DreamSaturn

      You could be like me and just seriously debate with yourself if you should just change it to your fursona name.

    2. dbzfan7

      dbzfan7

      You are now....PERFECTER OGILVIE!!!

  23. Furries donated so much to an ALS charity today that it's crashed the site. Furries unintentionally DDoSed the website in Dogbomb's memory, holy crap.

  24. RIP Dogbomb1. I only learned of him a few days ago, but I can see what endeared so many people to him. I can only hope to have the chance to meet him in another life.

  25. It's fun to volunteer at cons and basically play the waiting game to see which one offers me a staff position first so I sell my soul to that one.
