FTFV:  "Could not load plugins. File not found."

Any website that requires me to whitelist a bazillion domains AND requires me to install some obscure plugins aren't worth my clicks.  I have Flash and Silverlight.  I don't need *anything* else.  Nobody does.

Batman should have one of these on his utility belt.  But instead of dispensing normal coins, it dispenses gold krugerrands.

One of the only good things about the series "Enterprise" was that their Star Fleet uniforms had pockets.  I think they may be the only ones with any concession to utility (though I'm hardly a Trekky, so I might be very wrong).

Jim Lee should have designed more pouches....

I dunno why they said Jim Lee though, maybe the only artist they knew?

I'm sorry, but I'm just walking away from DC at this point.  I can understand marketing your properties and all that; but this screams of 'PLEASE BUY OUR PRODUCTS! PRETTY PLEASE?! WITH SUGAR ON TOP?!"  There's a sense of real desperation with this for Time Warner/DC to find some type of foothold against the Marvel juggernaut.

It's exactly like throwing shiat at the wall and seeing what sticks.  If I were Time Warner's shareholders I'd be terrified at this point.

My guess is that you were either too young or too busy with life to remember the rampant cartoon commercial tie-ins -including both Marvel and DC properties- in the 80s and 90s.  You think those X-Men cartoons (see: "I'm the Juggernaut, BIATCH!") were anything more than 20 minute ads for the toys?

Those cartoons were decent for the time, actually.  They were a lot less toyetic than stuff like, say, G.I. Joe.  And, frankly, I was amazed they managed to do the Phoenix and Dark Phoenix sagas in a way that even approached doing justice to the source material.

Definitely.  The entire Saturday morning lineup (*sigh* I miss the hell out of those) was an hours-long commercial, peppered by commercials for other toys, cereals and candy.
GI Joe, Transformers, He-Man, Inhumanoids, Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, M.A.S.K., Bionic Six, Go Bots, Thundercats/Silverhawks...  Man, I feel old.  >_<

Anyone reminiscing about the commercial and marketing impact on cartoons absolutely has to watch the final episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold.  Mitefall has to be one of the most biting and funny episodes I've ever seen.

This are give me the sads. This was dumb in almost every way.

Why did she call the Justice League to tag along for her kid's birthday shopping? Especially when they weren't going to pay anyway? And batman has a whole array of storage.

Aaaaand... THERE. Officially wasted more time than this was worth.

I don't know about you, but watching the clip, I grew a ZZ Top Beard and every female in a 5 mile radius gave birth to lumberjack triplets.

Well shiat! You must be right near me, because I thought *I* made that happen by watching the clip. (I already have the beard from when I watched the original show in the early 90s )

That's the thing, I grew up on DC.  If anything, I want DC to succeed in the worst way.

Problem is: Time Warner could fark up a cup of coffee at this point.

Bazing.  And awwwww....sookie, sookie.

I like the fact that he's just standing there with his arms crossed -- the only one of them that DOES have pockets and almost certainly money in them.

It's like "hey, don't look at the one-percenter... that woman can buy her OWN kid's crap"

That's why superheroes have superheroines and sidekicks. So they can put their money and car keys between their ta-tas, or leave the problem of unsightly bulges* to the boy, or dog, or whatever.

Before the invention of pantaloons, medieval men often kept their money in their codpieces (harder for a cut-purse to cut your purse-strings without you knowing it), but superheroes who tried this found it very embarassing to whip out their Amercan Express Optima cards in restaurants. They had to stand up for one thing.

*The original Robin's unsightly bulges had nothing to do with a lack of pockets. Those guys were horn dogs.

Scotsmen, of course, have purses called sporrans which they wear where the codpiece would be, but which are attached to them with links of steel. And like smart ladies, they always have a weapon or two concealed in their stockings.

It's amazing how I know all this stuff, isn't it. Don't even have to Google.
 
2013-06-19 07:08:37 PM
They're called codpieces because that's where they kept their cod, aka the trouser trout.

Medieval men often smelled like dried cod and so did their money. Fortunately, they didn't use a lot of money, and those who did bathed at least once a year on doctor's orders.

But that has nothing to do with the maxim, "The money doesn't stink.--Pecunia non odorat.) That was said by the Emperor Vespasian when he was criticized for taxing urine. They named the public convenience after him (in French, Vespasien).

But you know that already because I've explained it before.

As if you read these posts to the end. Admit it. You have an attention span of exactly 140 characters, no more, no less.

I love the Tick. I have the live-action series, the two cartoon seasons, and some of the comic books as well.

This kind of gentle, low-key satire is great for those of us who love the comics but acknowledge the absurdity of the art.

Who's to say he doesn't? We don't often see him shop--or use subway tokens. Then again, he is rich, bi-atch!

I imagine he doesn't have to do a lot of shopping, He has Alfred to buy his Batman stuff and probably a personal shopper to buy his Bruce Wayne stuff. The more you know--the more this crap makes sense.
