I got several months behind on watching stuff on Channel Awesome and have just started getting caught up in the past day or so (the Nostalgia Critic/Doug Walker bits of the site, anyway). As stated in the above video itself, that is from the end of the Nostalgia Critic review of "Inspector Gadget Saves Christmas." And yes, he actually got Cree Summer to do the Penny voice for that bit. That's pretty frickin' awesome.

Of course, that's not the first time Doug has gotten celebrities to be be in his videos.

Yeah, I liked the original movies well enough, but the cartoon was definitely more my thing as a kid. Good to hear it holds up. If/when I ever get around to going through old cartoons like that, The Real Ghostbusters will be at the top of the list.

I guess I need to start watching this show. I'll get right on that, after I watch all of the 2003 series for the first time (of which I also still haven't yet seen even a single full episode).

No, but seriously, that's pretty cool.

Is it just me, or is Homestar Runner actually updating more frequently lately? Or, at least, more frequently than not at all, anyway. Hell, there was even a new SBEmail not too long ago.

Thing is, the only way up to now that I was able to know if the site actually updated was to, you know, actually check the site itself, which is something straight out of the olden days of last decade. Now, however, as of today, I've added this thing to my Feedly reader, so I should hopefully be able to keep up-to-date with the site on a somewhat more timely basis, though it looks like it'll catch things other than just the new cartoons that might go up. This is also contingent upon the Homestar Runner Wiki site not dying, though, since that's where the feed is being hosted.

Yeah... yeah, like I said before, I'm just going to have to watch some of these new shows at some point, hopefully sooner than later.
kane_magus: (kanethumb1)

They keep mentioning those current shows, like Adventure Time and Gravity Falls and Steven Universe, and I have to admit... I'm getting dangerously close to kind of wanting to check them out at some point. They also mention Korra and that's one I already definitely want to check out at some point, though that would first require (re)watching Avatar (not to be confused with Avatar), which I watched maybe half of the first season of several years ago, but never finished at the time, though I've since reacquired it with the intention of actually watching the whole thing, but just haven't gotten around to it yet and... yeah.

Anyway, Disney Afternoon. I somehow blessedly managed to entirely miss the later stuff like Goof Troop, Mighty Ducks and Quack Pack or whatever, which Doug and Rob seemed not to care too much for, but as a kid I was all about me some of the earlier stuff like Rescue Rangers and DuckTales and Darkwing Duck and such. Somehow, though, I also managed to mostly miss out on Gargoyles as well, which in retrospect seems like a damn shame, honestly (especially since Will Riker and Deanna Troi apparently were full cast members and several other Star Trek actors had guest roles as well). Maybe one of these days, if/when I ever go on a full on nostalgic cartoon binge and try to watch all that old stuff, along with non-Disney stuff like Batman and Ninja Turtles and Ghostbusters and whatever else, maybe I'll try to throw Gargoyles in there as well, even though I hardly watched any of it as a kid.

I didn't have to watch that to know that the review intro was pretty much beat-for-beat identical to the actual TMNT cartoon intro, but it's nice to have that comparison there to prove that it's so.

(EDIT 2) And here's a link to the full review. (/EDIT 2)

I'll either do another post later, or edit this one, with the full review when it goes up tomorrow. Apparently, they're going to rip the 2014 Ninja Turtles movie a new asshole. Both of these guys have already discussed the movie separately as themselves and not their characters, but now, several months later, they've decided to do a joint review as the Angry Video Game Nerd and the Nostalgia Critic.

I still have yet to see the movie myself, so I honestly don't know if it really is as bad as they and so many other people make it out to be. I thought it was a terrible idea from the get go, myself, but several members of my family who went to see it in theaters with their kids said it was pretty good, so... I don't know. *shrug* I still have little interest in seeing it, but I'm not adamantly opposed to watching it either, so maybe I'll get around to it someday eventually.

(EDIT) Oh, and on a semi-related note, Doug Walker is in this week's episode of James and MikeDoug Mondays as well. (/EDIT)

Oh, I meant to write about this stuff earlier, before getting distracted by other bullshit, so here goes. Had some interesting and fairly weird dreams last night.

Dream #2

Twice even since the last time it updated several months ago. With the promise at the end of the more recent one of an actual full Halloween toon to come "sometime before Halloween." We'll have to wait and see if this is an indicator of more frequent updates, but even if it isn't I'll take what I can get.
kane_magus: (The_Sims_Medieval)
The heck? Out of the blue, for no real reason, I visited Homestar Runner just now for the first time in... a really, really long time, not expecting anything to be different, given that they hadn't updated in several years now. Well, apparently, they're at least a little bit less not updated than they were last time I checked. O_O

As far as I can tell, the only change to the site is that the normal "Come on in/Watch intro" page has been replaced with a new toon in which Homestar blatantly points out the fact that the website hasn't been updated in forever, and then it goes on from there.

Sure, it doesn't seem like they're actually back or anything, but still, that was a nice surprise.


Oh, it was apparently an April Fool's Day thing, I guess? That's cool. Hope it's not another three or four years before they update again, though.


(EDIT 2)

Since the fake homepage has been replaced once more with the real homepage, the fake homepage can be found here.

Been following this one for a while now (note that this is entirely unrelated to Turnabout Storm, aside from them both being MLP/Phoenix Wright crossover-ish things). And now it's released. I'm actually kind of shocked that it somehow managed to make it out without being hit with a Hasbro C&D like most other things.
kane_magus: (The_Sims_Medieval)

So I was watching that and thinking, yeah, that's a pretty cool pony-fied take on the Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia intro, and I thought that was all it was going to be. Then it got to the end and I was like, wait, there's an actual game associated with this? As it turns out, there is. (EDIT) And, apparently, it's almost a year old. How have I not heard of this before now, I wonder. (/EDIT)
kane_magus: (The_Sims_Medieval)
Also, while I'm on the subject of MLP:FIM, the Phoenix Wright/Friendship is Magic crossover series has completed as of the other day. I've made posts about this before, but I'm just going to repost all of the videos here.

Videos behind cut. )

Or you could just go watch it on Youtube itself I guess.
kane_magus: (The_Sims_Medieval)
This is the best possible thing, on so many levels.

I love how they used clips from the anime for this, rather than from the game itself (which is what, obviously, the original video was about).

In the course of hearing about Double Rainboom, I also learned of the existence of Snowdrop as well. It's another fan-made episode that was recently released. Couldn't be more different in tone than Double Rainboom, but I think I might actually like it a little bit better.

(Double Rainboom was packed with cameos and easter eggs and the like, too many to count, but I noticed a couple in this one as well, mainly FiM versions of G1 Surprise at around 0:25 and G1 Firefly at around 12:42.)

(EDIT) Reposting a different embed, since the original upload got set to private for dubious reasons. Lesson to be learned: once this kind of thing is in the wild, there's no suppressing it. (/EDIT)
kane_magus: (The_Sims_Medieval)
It's been about one year, plus or minus two or three days, since I first started watching a little kids' show about colorful talking ponies.

The only real difference between then and now is that I'd say that Rainbow Dash has been bumped up to a close second in my list at this point.

I'm just going to copy/paste here what I said over on Facebook:

"I fully endorse this. If you're a fan of the show or even, dare I say, a brony yourself, then it's a no-brainer to get this. If you're not a fan of the show, but want to know what this whole 'brony' thing is all about, this is probably by far the best way to find out. If you're just a hater who's gonna hate no matter what, however, then you should probably give this a pass."


Here is the short animation that was included in the documentary:
