Henry Payne cartoon 07/28/2015

I love this cartoon. It's got everything you could want from a political cartoon: a long-debunked conservative conspiracy, demonization of some random government slob unknown to normal people, a seemingly inexplicable slam against Jon Stewart, and a topical reference to a popular movie currently in theaters! It's a close runner-up to this one as my favorite of the month.

REVIEWS OF CHILDRENS MEDIA, PART XXXIII

Pirate Fairy Croc

The Tinker Bell movie The Pirate Fairy features origin stories for (spoilers!!!) Captain Hook and Tick Tock Croc, which means the Peter Pan Timeline is as follows:

  1. The Tinker Bell/Pixie Hollow movies
  2. A few decades pass, during which Captain Hook loses his hand and Tinker Bell meets Peter Pan
  3. Peter Pan
  4. Jake and the Neverland Pirates (takes place shortly after Peter Pan according to one episode where the Darling children are the same ages)
  5. 20-30 years pass
  6. Peter Pan II: Return to Neverland (takes place during World War II)

I hope this information is of some use to you.

Awful Link of the Day - Tumblr's lifting community:

Shoplifters of the world wide web, unite! Tumblr's "lifting community" is a burgeoning subculture of young girls who steal makeup and clothes, then brag about their ill-gotten gains for all to see.

A Google search suggests I am the first person to use the phrase "shoplifters of the world wide web, unite!" tips hat

After like two weeks of strips about trigger warnings, I thought perhaps Bruce Tinsley had gone soft and was deliberately avoiding the big stories of the day - legalized gay marriage, the Confederate flag, Donald Trump's comments about Mexicans - and then, BAM! He knocks it right out of the park!

Awful Link of the Day: Ellington Vengaboys Museum:

One of The Curator's ultimate dream goals is getting the Vengaboys to visit him in rural Ellington, NY so he can pitch them on his idea for a Vengaboys movie, which he describes as "a science fiction thriller/action/adventure story about a levitating island."

Death is inevitable but we still need to take bold, decisive action with regards to climate change and environmental destruction instead of just talking about it so our descendants (birds) can have a better world

Happy 12th anniversary to rubbercat.net toot

As mentioned before, I upgraded my hosting plan with lots more space so I added everything here back to my "hosted" section, which I had previously taken down to free up space. Apparently MIDIs are no longer supported in Chrome so The Jonathan Taylor Thomas Chamber certainly loses a lot of "oomph," another victim of modern web gentrification. I don't think I want to know what percentage of my website no longer works.

peanuts movie

Once again Blue Sky shows a shocking disregard for Peanuts canon... Linus & Lucy are supposed to be in different grades and Franklin & Peppermint Patty go to a different school... sorry, but I'll pass.

chromium

I found an early version of Chromium that I hadn't used since 2009 tucked away in a random folder. Apparently during that time the internet upgraded to a completely different alphabet.

REVIEWS OF CHILDRENS SHOWS, PART XXVI

tom & jerry show

The new (well, new to me anyway) Tom & Jerry show looks like an Erin Esurance commercial. Tom can only "talk" in soundclips from the 1940s and it sounds like a crummy wav file of someone's answering machine. Just hire a new guy to scream, geez

Awful Link of the Day - Vampirewebsite.net:

Once you become a vampire, you'll find that it comes with its own set of challenges. For instance, there's the whole issue of acquiring blood. Contrary to offensive outdated stereotypes, today's vampires don't kill people for blood; rather, they find an "emo" cutter and ask them for permission, or stock up on beef jerky.

Tech Company Cafeterias

Here's something that I put together a few years ago but never got around to posting until now.

If you know of any more tech company cafeterias with dorky names, send 'em over my way.
