  1. I'm always happy when someone tells me I've convinced them to give polyamory a chance, personally.

      On that subject, I have two boyfriends and have two others in mind for when the time is right.

      Have you watched future man? Season 2 features one of the main characters in a polyamorous relationship with 2 other guys and 3 girls all married and they all have a kid.

      nort sounds like the name of a really unfun geeky dude and not the name of an evil guy imo

      There's no cheating. It's polyamory.

      Have a boyfriend to spare lol???

    4. JosepHenry


      How many you have? Is one of them on their mid twenties?

  4. Shipment of GE plushes arrived for the first time in 2 years. Boss music played as I once again discovered the power of darkness

  5. I like how quickly the Beastars fandom spread across the furry fandom

  6. I'm impressed how many Sonic fans I find at furcons. Maybe I'll look into a Sonic track at some point...

    1. LongcrierCat


      It really shouldn't be that surprising at this point. A lot of the fanbase has a teenage and adult following with unique views about the series. 

      Heck, I've made some good money on doing fanart. It's pretty cool, really. 

  7. Interesting epilogue to Sonic the Comic. I still have a few critiques of it though.

      Online or Original?

  8. No musical is complete without a villain song, even a musical about furcons.

  9. Wish GE would put whoever runs the Sonic line in charge of the Dragon Ball line. Every new plush is ANOTHER version of Goku. There's zero minor character appreciation here and it's boring.

      Also Jiren got a plush before Bergamo and that pisses me off to SO MANY degrees lmfao

  10. https://www.politico.com/story/2019/01/10/trump-white-house-urging-allies-to-prepare-for-possible-rbg-departure-1096102 So the Trump White House is drawing up possible replacements for Ginsburg. All respect to her, but she really should have left when Obama was still in office. We're likely about to get screwed for a generation. That said, with how states are making independent strides (such as taking out loans to pay federal workers in their state) in light of the shutdown, the Supreme Court shifting right may not be as bad as originally assumed. It will most certainly be a possibility blue states will just ignore its rulings. If the GOP wants to play politics, they can't be pissed when the Dems do it right back. Just say the Court was clearly politically-oriented in its appointments, is therefore illegitimate, and ignore whatever it says. We might be on the cusp of another switch in time that saves nine, as a Court that becomes obnoxiously right wing is a Court a lot of states are going to ignore.
  11. They wouldn't be giving Trump what he wants, though. He hates DACA and knows a deal on it would make his base hate him, as it did with the Amnesty Don incident. It's only inviting more shutdowns if they cave for the sake of opening the government, rather than extracting a huge concession first. So pairing a DREAM Act with some sort of "wall" is the ultimate revenge on him, because he gets what he wants and what he hates most at the same time. But since he walked away from negotiations, I expect any "wall" agreed to will be little more than a refurbished fence. The moment Congress can get to some two-thirds agreement is the moment they completely ignore him.
  12. https://www.cnn.com/2019/01/24/politics/senate-votes-shutdown-congress/index.html As expected, McConnell is the first of the big three - Pelosi and Trump being the other two - to soften his stance. He is allowing votes on competing government reopening measures, one which has wall funding and the other which doesn't. This is contrary to his original statement that he would not allow any votes on bills that Trump would not sign. Short of Pelosi or Trump moderating, which I'm not really seeing at the moment, my anticipation is some moderates in the Senate will create a bipartisan bill that funds the wall but also provides some permanent legal solution for many or all of the Dreamers. Whatever the bill is, it will need 67 votes. Then it can be sent to the House, where moderate Democrats and Republicans can join forces to get it to two-thirds there, which will overrule Pelosi. Trump will threaten to veto, but two-thirds means his resistance is largely symbolic at that point. There will be no happy solution here. But millions of people will get much-needed relief from a compromise bill passing. Exactly. Some Democrats have offered to back Trump's wall in exchange for actual legal status for the Dreamers in the past, as memory serves. Trump of course refused that. He wants to keep them in a legal limbo so he can use them as a bargaining chip down the line. The Democrats know it's a bad deal to trade something long-term - a wall - for something very short-term - temporary legal status. Plus since it'd be an executive action, Trump could easily walk back his promise.
  13. In the midst of all the shutdown talk, other things slipped through: namely, Pelosi has recently changed the rules of the House. The really huge change? Any bill that gets 290 votes - two-thirds - of the House have to be expedited to the floor if no committee has sent them to the floor. The Speaker is also required to put at least one of these bills up for a vote once a week while the House is in session. Pelosi just nuked the Hastert Rule. There is now a way to get bills to the House floor without the Speaker's approval. Remember that a lot of good bills that were crafted by pragmatic House and Senate members were sunk because the fringe of the ruling House party said no to them. Did you read the original post? This is assuming a situation where the wall is part of a compromise that gives legal status to the Dreamers. There is no easy way forward here, because someone is going to get pissed off no matter what is done. Not 0%, but minimal. In 2020, the Dems will go into the race with 47 seats. Realistically, they will lose Alabama. That means they would have to win all 4 swingy seats - Colorado, Maine, Arizona, and Iowa - to grab just 50 seats. They'd have to win the Vice Presidency on top of that. While there are a few other options - Montana, Georgia, North Carolina, West Virginia - those are tall orders, and any Democrat who takes those is likely to be very moderate. As for the swingy seats, Arizona still leans red, Iowa has been trending red, and Maine has a very popular incumbent in Susan Collins. The Democrats will need a blowout election in 2020 to take the Senate. Their best shot is actually in 2022, when a lot of Senators who came to power alongside Trump will be fighting for office. That's when Wisconsin, Iowa, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Florida are up. There is a caveat here: this relies heavily on the Presidency still being Republican. If the Democrats win the 2020 race, they will most likely lose seats in the Senate in 2022. It's a bleak image overall. While there is a possibility for something crazy happening, the most reasonable expectation is Democrats will be locked out of the Senate for the foreseeable future. As it stands, the best they can hope for is to try and monopolize the Presidency, but every Democratic President will be like Obama and be hamstrung by a GOP Congress. That's not really the problem. The institutions as currently exist will favor the GOP having more or less permanent control of the Senate going forward, unless Dems find a strategy that helps them win red states. But that will likely involve compromises that will make the progressive wing of the Party bare its fangs. It's almost like people forget the American constitution system was built to force compromise.
  14. https://thehill.com/homenews/senate/424792-senate-immigration-talks-fall-apart While McConnell, Pelosi and Trump are all digging in their heels, rank and file Senators have been trying to do what they do best: being the most pragmatic branch of government. They've been trying to work out a proposal that would fund the wall and reopen the government, but would also give legal protection to the Dreamers. Sadly talks really didn't go anywhere because the belief was there's no way Pelosi will accept the wall, and there's no way Trump will accept giving legal status to Dreamers. Now while progressives might be quick to slam their fists on the table and shout "No compromise!!," it is important to note there are more DACA recipients than abortion recipients. The wall is ineffective at best and a monument to racism at worst, but being able to give hundreds of thousands of people peace of mind seems like something to make it tolerable. Also. Senate math. The GOP has good odds of a permanent Senate majority going forward, barring a periodic lapse in power. Tough compromises are going to be the way things are done in the future, unless one wants to do nothing at all.
  15. So I've been watching clips of Justice League: Gods and Monsters, and Hernan Guerra Superman is the best Superman. I MEAN JUST LOOK:


  16. My coyote side howls with laughter at the realization official Rough and Tumble merchandise could actually happen

    1. dbzfan7


      Your coyote side is welcome around our park apparently, to take care of racoons.

  17. It's really a shame there's no path forward for ousting McConnell. The right of the party won't do it because they like him. The moderates won't do it because it'd undoubtedly lead to serious primary challenges on the basis they didn't support the President. And trying to go around him will invoke McConnell's wrath and ensure that Senator's policies get nowhere in the future. And they can't plot with Democrats to get rid of McConnell or limit his power because that would also lead to primary challenges. The wall is a powerful symbol on both sides of the aisle, and it's keeping Pelosi, McConnell and Trump from caving. McConnell's position as leader is pretty secure so he has no incentive to cave; tying his position to Trump's is actually a brilliant move. Trump and Pelosi, by contrast, both will be up again in 2020 and have maximum incentive to dig their heels in (especially since Pelosi already passed a bunch of bills). They're each going to wait to see who has the greatest chance of backlash before making a move. And honestly? It will likely be Trump. There are signs of an impending recession, and he will be the one that gets blamed for it no matter what. So he will cave because he needs to get to work on bills like infrastructure that he could use to win re-election. His path to the White House was very narrow, and with the Rust Belt having gone back to the Democrats in the recent cycle, he does not have as strong a hand as he thinks.
  18. Julian Castro has officially joined the 2020 brawl. If elected, he would be the first Hispanic President. This candidate field being rich in minorities is extremely promising. It also has another benefit: there are so many "firsts" in play, that none of them can really hope to have an edge on the basis of minority status alone. Policy will be what really matters here. Which means candidates like Booker, Harris, Gabbard, etc. are in for a fun time, because they all have nasty things ready to crawl out at a moment's notice and harm their campaigns. I know Yang's odds are long because of his relative obscurity, but I really hope he mops the floor with all these neoliberal assclowns. He's Bernie on steroids: he could easily use his basic income as a weapon to steal tracts of Trump country concerned about the loss of jobs.
  19. Okay, so GE's rolling out merchandise of Jiren and Tournament of Power 17... now to pray the minor universes get some love too. AT LEAST GIMME BERGAMO MERCH.

    1. RedFox99


      I'm honestly wondering if Toriyama or someone at Toei made Universe 9 for dem furries? 

  20. https://www.cnn.com/2019/01/10/politics/democrats-dont-want-a-businessman/index.html Democrats have soundly rejected a businessman candidate in a round of polling, however, the caveat here is that they were introduced just as businessmen in the poll, with no details on their policies. While you have a former Republican like Bloomberg enjoying lots of name recognition and getting soundly rejected, the worst performing candidate is Andrew Yang. Yang is an Asian-American in his mid-40s. His campaign pitch is focused on establishing a universal basic income. While he claims no ideology, his policies fall firmly on the left. He wants universal healthcare, $1,000/month given to every American, limits on tuition charges, more funding for public schools, cameras on every police officer, and the IRS to stop auditing poorer Americans. Regarding the economic issues of Trump country, Yang would also direct the IRS to expand tax deductions for Americans who relocate for work, while also going after opioid manufacturers and prescribers to limit their destruction. He has not held any formal political office, but... he shows a lot more promise than a lot of Democrats. He also doesn't have the age problem progressive leaders like Sanders do.
  21. So I finished Winds of Change's current Early Access build. I believe the game is 2/3 done? For $19.99 I got 15.5 hours of gameplay on my first playthrough, and I'm currently dating 5 people at once.

      I believe there's a name for people like that. :P

      there's a tumblr post somewhere that has someone mentioning that they put this mashup in their music playlist for the store they work at

      and they were laughing at customers literally stopping in confusion when they tried listening to the song

  23. Folks may think it's odd we're decorating our tree today, but we keep the decorations up until February 2nd!

  24. The Batman Beyond intro, but with Universe 9 characters

  25. Indeed, it'll get nice and confusing keeping these two anime separate. Particularly since with this one, they're outright saying it takes place after the most recent arc in both Super and Heroes.
