Reply to "OP From Side Quests" Message

Last night, I played the Spaceworld Demo of Pokemon Silver. I downloaded the version with the debug menu feature included and it includes a developer mode where you can walk through walls, run by holding down the "B" button (which I think they should've kept in the final game), and recieve a whole bunch of different items with a quantity of 99 (though I'm not sure what these items were since the most of the demo is in Japanese). Some of the Pokemon I used in the demo were Pinsir's evolution, Honoguma the fire bear, Chikorita, Marill, and Rattata. If you walked into some of the walls, they would take you to another location, which I'm not sure if they included just for the demo or if it was intended to be included in the final game but got cut some time during development. Also, in the demo, except for the first gen Pokemon (001-151), most of the Pokemon's cries were just Nidorina's cry and some of the music from the gen one Pokemon games were used like the Pallet Town theme.

Hi there !

Hello, I'm doing pretty okay, how about yourself? I agree, delicious chocolate should never be used for evil, only good, like making s'mores, chocolate cake, or chocolate anything! As for Pokemon though, I really love the games, ever since I could remember. However, I really love Pokemon Emerald the most, along with Pokemon Omega Ruby, they're by far my most favorite Pokemon games. What about your favorite Pokemon? I really prefer Eevee and Mudkip :03 !

Saw something about Pokemon Gold: SpaceWorld '97.

Made an image macro a while back. Happened to discover beta Hoppip and took a screenshot because I thought it looked hilarious.

Reply to "Skatin' Around at The Speed of Sound" Message

So I watched that baby skating commerical you sent me and the song they played is the same song Kangaroo Jack rapped to in the movie Kangaroo Jack. Sorry for the watermark in the clip. It was the best version I could find of this scene. Need I remind you that this is the same film that has a group of Kangaroos waving thier fingers and chanting "Chicken Blood" over and over agin.

I came across this video called "I'm No Fool On Wheels" that was made by Disney Educational Productions and stars Elijah Wood as Pinocchio. From what I understand, Elijah is a kid in this video so my guess is that it was made some time in the nineties.

The Pokemon I started out with in the demo was a Honoguma. In one of the houses in the starting town, there's a PC where you can obtain certain Pokemon and one of the Pokemon in the PC is a level eight Chikorita. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to obtain a Farfetch'd nor its evolution. I'll have to play the demo a little more to see where I can get one. And no. I looked. There's no Farfetch'd in the PC.

Reply to "Camels Farting Cinematic Universe" Message

In the lore of Grand Theft Auto, there's a thing called the Australian-American War. Now over the years, there has been a variety of DLC made for a bunch of different GTA games. Yet, there has never been DLC that focuses on this particular piece of lore. I mean, if they made that, I would actually buy it and play the shit out of it.

There was a Made for TV Movie that came out in 1973 called Go Ask Alice and it's based on this really awful book of the same name. One of the most interesting things about the 1973 M.F.TV film is that it has William Shatner in it. You know, the guy who played Captian James T. Kirk on Star Trek and was also that guy who was afraid of Gremlins in that one episode of The Twilight Zone?

Also, it has a terrible cover of Jefferson Airplane's White Rabbit song. Then again, it is a TV movie with no money for the song rights to the original so I'll give it some slack there. After a scene where her former best friend Beth doesn't invite Alice to some get together, Alice is walking through a grocery store and inner-monolouging to herself about how the diary is still the only friend she has and how she feels lonely and she's supposed to feel kind of sad about all this. However, the music playing in the background is an upbeat song called The Spanish Flea. Not only does it not fit with what the character is feeling, but the song has been used in so many YouTube videos, especially for humorously timed Techinical Difficulites screens, that the scene becomes impossible to take seriously.

Hello !

Hello friend how are you doing today? I hope everything is going great for you, I can agree though, it certainly seems that hot weather is a great excuse to enjoy delicious chocolate! Funnily enough, I had a Hershey's Cookies & Cream chocolate bar I was going to eat, but it was left in the car and it turned into cookies and cream soup instead! Has that ever happened to you? If it wasn't in the car but was melted in the microwave, I think it would tasty really good on some ice cream, or cake, or more chocolate! Hope you're having a very blessed day! :) Luigifan100 16:51, June 21, 2018 (UTC)



Reply to "Captain Kangaroo... Yeah That's all I Got" Message

I think the disclaimer might be there for people who live outside of the U.S and Australia and may not be entirely familiar with the history of both countries.

The thing about that Go Ask Alice book is that it jumps around time a lot and had dates before each entry to let you know when a certain scene is taking place. The movie however doesn't have this and as a result, it's nearly impossible to know what time each scene is taking place and it also doesn't have that many visual clues. If you ask me, I think this problem could've been easliy fixed by putting some text at the bottom of the screen at the beginning of each scene since this film doesn't seem to have much of a budget. Speaking of movies that time jump a lot, there was this movie that came out in 2014 called Boyhood that was universally praised by critics and some other people. For me, while I didn't think it was as great as it was made out to be, there was one thing about it that I thought was rather clever. Like I've mentioned before, this film jumps around time a lot (specifically in a timeframe between 2002 and 2013) and rather than use subtitles to tell us what time period a scene is taking place in, it uses historical events and pop culture references as hints without shoving them in your face too much.

So today I came across this podcast series called I Don't Even Own a Television where two guys named J and Collision review various books. Two of the episodes that I've listened to so far are their episode on Ready Player One and their episode on Armada (a book that was written by the same guy who wrote RPO). I feel like I've mentioned this series to you before but I'm not really sure.

There was this cover of the Ghostbusters theme song that came out in June of 2016 and it was done by this Japanese/Korean band consisting of four ladies who were wearing the uniforms seen in the 2016 Ghostbusters film. The song itself is a million times better than the movie.

Pokemon :D

Hi there! I hope you're doing well, I'm doing pretty good. I have to say, out of all the cities in Pokemon X and Y, Lumoise City is one of my favorites, it's very beautiful and the music is really great in my opinion, though the game itself seems very amazing to me. I was actually wondering though, what's your least favorite Pokemon game, and why? For me, it might be Pokemon Sun and Moon and even then it's not too bad, just a lot of tutorials with no way to skip them, though the sequel did make it a bit better. Another thing I recommend is when you bake a cake or brownie or delicious cookies, adding vanilla extract is a great edition! I hope you have a super day! Luigifan100 04:27, June 29, 2018 (UTC)



Reply to "What's So Funny 'Bout Dying Inside From a Bad Joke?" Message

Alternate title for this message: Welcome to Meme Your Enthusiasm. Where The Bill Murrays are Dying Inside and The Joke Quality Doesn't Matter.

In the movie Lost in Translation, there's a scene where Bill Murray and Scar Jo are at a karaoke place and Bill Murray sings the song "What's So Funny About Peace, Love, and Understanding", which is what the title of this message is a reference to. From what I've seen, Bill Murray isn't that bad of a singer (at least in this scene) and I'm surprised that his cover of the song wasn't included on the soundtrack.

The funny part about that unfunny joke was that it would've been very easy to make it funny. I've seen Mr. Plinkett's review of the 2016 film and from what I remember, this was the change he proposed for the herse scene:

(The unaltered herse shows up to the Ghostbusters HQ and Patty gets out of the herse)

Patty: Hey y'all! Look at what I found!

Female Egon: Did you check to see if there was a body in the back?

(The scene cuts back to Patty silently staring at the camera for a couple of seconds before the movie abruptly cuts to the next scene)

So there's this game called The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit and from what I understand, it is a spin-off of Life is Strange but features none of the characters from the original game, as it takes place three years after the events of the original and is set in Beaver Creek Oregon. The reason why I mention this game is because the main character of the spin-off, Chris, will be featured in Life is Strange 2, though it's not clear whether he will be the main character, a side character, or a cameo. The good news is that you don't have to pay any money to play the spin-off, though given the quality of the previous two games, I'm not sure if it will be any better.

Speaking of Amanda, I used to watch The Amanda Show when it was on Teen Nick and it's one of my favorite Nick shows next to The Adventures of Pete and Pete and Drake and Josh.

What's your opinion on self-help books?

Heeere's Hailey! Wanna Talk? 23:25, June 29, 2018 (UTC)

So I heard you like Mudkips!

Yeah I can certainly say that Pokemon games have made a big improvement in terms of making saving easier since if I remember correctly, once the battery runs dry in Pokemon Gold, your save file is wiped out, losing all your Pokemon! I've seen the Pokemon Pikachu 2 on ebay a few times, it looks like a great little system, it kind of reminds me of the Pokemon Mini ! It's actually kind of funny because I'm a pretty big fan of JWittz's videos, he usually tends to make me laugh! How are you doing though? Have you discovered any lost chocolate civilizations?

Reply to "Bring in The Dancin' Lobstiz!" Message

I think the whole "some sketches work and some don't" is a problem that occurs with most if not all sketch comedy shows, including All That, which was another Nick sketch comedy show. I'm not sure if this is because the sketches have their own writer or if some of the ideas just can't be salvaged or if sketch shows are on tight schedules that don't allow for rewrites/reshoots for those "tougher to execute properly" type of ideas. Speaking of The Amanda Show, some of my favorite segments are Judge Trudy and Who Wants to Win Five Dollars?

The guys over at I Don't Even Own a Televsion did a review of that memoir A Million Little Pieces a while ago and they had a guest on the show named Lauren Parker who gave her thoughts on the story. Speaking of A.M.L.P, South Park made an episode a long time ago called "A Million Little Fibers" and let's just say it was a crazy episode.

For my 4th of July, I spent thirteen dollars on candy at a candy store, got myself some ice cream, and watched some fireworks. I also watched the Bristol 4th of July Parade on TV.

So Adum recently uploaded the first part of his playthrough on The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit. So far, it seems that the character models look slightly better than Life is Strange and Before The Storm and Chris seems to have more enthusiasm than Max Caulfield (the main character of the first LIS game). I also like how, even though it's heavily hinted at that Chris's dad has anger issues and is a heavy drinker, he does seem to care about his son and he does have a sense of humor and a playful side to him. In other words, Chris's dad seems like a flawed but still kind of likeable character so far. Also, there's no Chloe Price so far so that's an instant plus! For whatever reason though, in this game, to select your choice, you have to scroll through the avaliable choices and click the option you want, as opposed to just pushing the button to select a choice like in the previous LIS games. I don't really understand the reason for the change. I mean, the button system worked just fine, as it was easier to understand and helped keep things moving. In some ways so far, The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit is better than LIS and LIS:BTS and in other ways, it's worse.

Reply to "I'm Out of Ideas for Titles" Message

So Adum just uploaded the second and final part of his playthrough of The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit. In this part towards the end, we get to see an example of Chris' father's aggressive behaviour, which is verbal abuse towards his son. Besides the father character, this game isn't all that interesting. From what I understand, it seems like a game that will tie in with Life is Strange 2 or a demo for said game, hence why it was free to play. It also seems like the Life is Strange series will become an anthology series that focuses on a different set of characters dealing with a different set of strange events in every game onward.

I always found that measuring the popularity of a TV program by ratings alone was quite flawed. I mean, just because an episode of a show or a TV special got high ratings, doesn't mean that it's good or that everyone who tuned in was actually engaged with the program. Like, do the people running mainstream TV not understand the concept of "background noise" and "hate watching"? Thankfully, with the advent of Netflix, the internet, and the fact that "cable-cutting" is becoming more popular, mainstream TV doesn't seem like it'll last much longer.

When I was little, I used to be extremely terrified of fireworks due to my sensory issues. Today I'm not as scared of them but the big firework explosions still get me.

Well according to the Life is Strange Wiki: (Max's surname is a reference to Holden Caulfield, the protagonist of the J. D. Salinger novel The Catcher in the Rye, a student at an exclusive boarding school like Max, and an icon for teenage rebellion and angst. Both have similar personality traits such as the urge to preserve innocence. A central aspect of The Catcher in the Rye is the dilemma of Holden's state in between adolescence and adulthood. There are several other references to that book throughout the game, such as the "the WINGER and the COW" poster in Max's room which has a very similar style to the cover of The Catcher in the Rye, or the red cap in the principal's secretary office which resembles the hat Holden wears; she also calls it "phony" which is a characteristic word used many times by Holden in the novel.)

Hi there! I hope you had a wonderful day yesterday, I remember watching that video and I thought it was rather funny as well, I think he's a pretty good YouTuber as he doesn't ever seem to rant or do anything too over the top. I honestly really love Drumsticks but I don't prefer the nuts as well because even though I'm not allergic to them just like you are, the texture doesn't sit right with me, so I prefer them plain! I got a question for you, have you ever had a cereal called Oreo's? They were discontinued for a while but they were reintroduced around last year I believe. I'm also a fan of Godiva chocolate, they're pretty silky smooth! Luigifan100 04:41, July 13, 2018 (UTC)

I heard that Young Justice is getting a third season called Young Justice: Outsiders and it's going to debut on DC's streaming service, though I'm not sure if it will be exclusive to that service or if it will air there first and then be ported to other services and networks later.

You know something? I keep thinking that Vancouver is a city in Canada and Toronto is a city in Washington state when in reality, Vancouver is in Washington state and Toronto is in Canada. Do you also think that a city is in one place when it's really in another place?

So on monday, I went to see The Incredibles 2 and Ant Man and The Wasp at this drive in movie theater with my family. Except for the scenes where Edna Mode and Jack Jack were bonding and all, Incredibles 2 was... Sub Parr. Ant Man and The Wasp was okay but it feels like a filler movie. The movie that I liked the best was the short that played before Incredibles 2 called Bao. It was tearjerking and adorable and there isn't a single line of dialouge. I hope someone uploads the full short on YouTube because my god is it impressive!

Reply to "Sly Vancooper" Message

So I recently discovered that Jack Gantos is coming out with a new Joey Pigza story that will be released on September 18, 2018. However, from what I understand, the story will only be in audiobook format. The last Joey Pigza story came out in 2014 and I honestly thought that it would be the final JP story ever released. I've only read/listened to the Joey Pigza Swallowed the Key and Joey Pigza Loses Control so I'm not sure how good the rest of the series is. Therefore, I'm not sure how good this new story will be.

I'll be honest, it has been a long time since I saw The Incredibles so I'd have to watch it again to give a full on review of the film.

I came across this thing where a guy named Paul F. Tompkins does a stand up routine about the book Go Ask Alice. It's only six minutes long but holy hell is it funny! Speaking of Alice, there was this short anti-drug film called Curious Alice that came out in 1971 and it makes you feel like you're having a bad acid trip as you're watching it.
