It's Morphin- I mean, Archive Time!

I like to think my experience working at Hotel Richissime in Lumiose City has improved my skill at cleaning talk pages. I'll have to archive my own before too long.

By the way, in case I haven't shown this already, go to my video "Reacting to 'Wheel of Misfortune' (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Season 1 episode), part one of two" and listen to about 10:50-11:15. If I've already shown this, I apologize.

Today was my aunt's birthday, so we went out and got pizza & garlic knots from Papa John's (her favorite pizza place) to celebrate.

That's good. I'll sure it'll be interesting. Raidra (talk) 00:27, 12 December 2020 (UTC)

Gorilla: (flatly) Ow, ow, ow, you bit my toe!

It certainly looks thorough! It's good when YouTubers investigate things like that instead of automatically going, "Good enough for me!" Apparently there's an update video about how the guy who got that rumor started in the first place is now saying, "I didn't say it; I was just repeating what fans were saying." :-/

Austin St. John, who played Jason the Red Power Ranger, has a couple channels on YouTube and has some entertaining videos. This one is about him learning which Red Ranger he was. Raidra (talk) 15:29, 19 December 2020 (UTC)

Have you ever heard about the plot of a movie and wondered, "Why is this a movie?" I ask because I just saw this trailer on Turner Classic Movies. Maybe I'm taking this too seriously, but A) I've never found obsessed stalkers funny, and B) I can imagine the outrage if the genders were reversed. On a side note, if the actor seems familiar, he's the guy from the original Pink Panther movies from the 1960s & '70s. Raidra (talk) 20:52, 19 December 2020 (UTC) Of course, the film in the trailer wouldn't be the worst movie related to Peter Sellers- Raidra (talk) 20:55, 19 December 2020 (UTC)

Pink Panther: The Movie: The Game: The Musical: The Movie

They used to show the cartoons on TNT when I was little. I also remember the character being, of all things, a fiberglass mascot at one point (since the brand of fiberglass was pink), but I don't know if he still is.

I agree. It's usually awkward when they take a short story that's only 2-7 pages long, or a song that's only two or three minutes long, and turn it into a full-length feature. There are some that could be turned into a decent movie by a good filmmaker because they have backstories (real or implied) that could be fleshed out. For instance, there's a disturbing song called "Frankie Teardrop" which is about ten and a half minutes long and tells a story. The meaning of Madonna's song "Secret" has also been debated, so a talented filmmaker might be able to do something with it. For the most part, though, movies based on short stories and songs are mostly boring filler. After I typed "boring filler", my love of Roger Ebert's heckling knocked on a door in my mind and gave me this review when I opened it.

That sounds like another case of people just taking someone else's word for it. Have you ever noticed how a lot of times when a big movie is getting ready to come out, people talk about how it's great & everyone needs to go see it, and then at the end of the year, people talk about how the movie was terrible & it rightfully bombed? I've decided I'm only going to watch something if A) it looks interesting and doesn't seem to be offensive to me and/or B) someone close to me recommends it. I have a list of reactors I follow because they're both genuine and entertaining, and one of them is Chavezzslovakia. He watched a TikTok compilation that someone had said was funny, and at the end he declared, "Y'all lied to me." Raidra (talk) 20:49, 22 December 2020 (UTC)

"...and he's only 23!"

Hello! I apologize for the delay. I've been working on a narration for a lengthy story I posted to another site. That's good! We spent Christmas Eve afternoon (which sounds weird) at my brother's place to eat and exchange gifts, and on Christmas my aunt and I visited a friend. I got a couple Animal Crossing games for my 3ds and some other gifts. A few years ago, I made my brother a cryptids guide. This year I received a photocopy of the guide so I'd have a copy of my own. That was one of my favorite gifts because it was very thoughtful.

Some time ago there was a Curb Your Meme with Veggietales. There was a humanoid figure (which turned out to be a toy) telling the others, "Anyone who has hands, start tyin'!" causing Bob the Tomato and the others to look at him like, "Really, playa?" I didn't know where the clip was from, whether it was an actual Veggietales clip or not, until my brother put on a Christmas-related Veggietales episode for nostalgia and there it was.

He just had to get people's hopes up by inserting that pause in the title. "Home Alone..." :-D "...5." :-/ There was a YouTube Poop with a clip of Luigi (from Super Mario Bros.) saying, "Yeah, well, I think it was funny!" I noted that I have the same reaction whenever someone rags on Home Alone 2: Lost in New York. Raidra (talk) 03:03, 31 December 2020 (UTC)

If you're interested, here's the finished video, a collaboration between me and Soulz Studios- Raidra (talk) 15:43, 31 December 2020 (UTC)

Hailey: Animal Crossing Master

That's good! Mine was good too. My aunt and I watched the ball drop and then went on to bed. I had my usual bottle of Sprite while my aunt had a can of Mountain Dew.

Nice! That's a good screenshot, and I think it also captures fans' reaction to Amiibo Festival game. You could put plants and lab equipment in your basement as a tribute to the work of good ol' Jovial Bob.


His reactions to the recordings/movie clips were gold. My favorite moment with the hotel workers is when the mother asks, "What kind of idiots do you have working here?!" and the woman proudly replies, "The finest in New York!" X-D

I don't remember this episode of Pokemon- Raidra (talk) 23:56, 2 January 2021 (UTC)

Local Villager chases bug-catching record

The seasonal things might make collecting a challenge, but I love how there are things to do throughout the year. In some of the Pokemon games, the Pokemon Center gives you a greeting on your birthday. Is there anything like that in the AC games? Sounds good. You need to stay in good shape to dig up moneybags, plant trees, and mine rocks.

I forget if I posted this already, but Anime America made a video about [ an Animal Crossing movie released in Japan]. At the end there's a segment in which they pair clips with sound bites from YouTubers such as JonTron (Note that parts are probably NSFW).

AzuManga Daioh- a horror anime about children getting threatened by monstrous cats ;-) Raidra (talk) 19:06, 6 January 2021 (UTC)

Gotta greet 'em all

I apologize for the delay. The last couple of days have been busy. That's good! I've been working on more Fakemon, which I should have finished and posted soon.

Please don't talk about that book series or its adaptations.

"I know the game celebrates other villagers' birthdays." Now I'm picturing birthday parties in the Animal Crossing world and it sounds adorable. :-D I saw an article about someone having a Ramadan celebration in AC, so maybe people can make their own celebrations if the game doesn't acknowledge player birthdays.

An actor/rapper/motivational speaker named Deezer D passed away recently. A lot of people know him from ER, Romy and Michele's High School Reunion, or the parody films he was in, but I knew him as Jazz from the best bad movie ever, Cool as Ice. Rest in peace.

Have you ever watched any cursed commercials videos? I've been binge watching the series on the Shayy YouTube channel. You just wonder what some people were thinking. It must be getting easier and easier to be hired as ad writers because companies don't seem to be doing a dang thing to filter out the people who have no business doing it. Raidra (talk) 01:22, 10 January 2021 (UTC)

Wedding Bells

Don't worry about it.

Thanks! I should have them ready soon.

That sounds cute. Hopefully they had family & friends able to visit too. I'm also glad there weren't technical issues because it would be bad to be halfway through a video game wedding ceremony and suddenly the Internet service gets interrupted. Speaking of life announcements, YouTubers Renae and TheJWittz recently announced on one of Renae's AC videos that she was expecting, which was really sweet. Hopefully this link will show the video-

Wow, that's more than twice the amount Shayy has! I'll definitely have to check those out! I know YouTube has been trying to claim his videos are "Made for children", so I wonder how many cursed commercial videos have been accidentally labelled that. Have you seen the Thai toothpaste "Black Man" commercial? Up until the last eleven or twelve seconds it's a very sad and profound short film, and then it just takes an absurd turn that makes it laughable. Raidra (talk) 19:48, 10 January 2021 (UTC)

Here are the new Fakemon- Raidra (talk) 17:05, 11 January 2021 (UTC)

Renae is now holding the Luck Incense!

Thanks! The ghost seals were inspired by "The White Seal" by Rudyard Kipling and the subsequent cartoon adaptation by Chuck Jones. Both had a scene with seal hunters being unsettled by the sight of a white seal pup, but the cartoon expanded on it by having a hunter fearfully mistake it for the ghost of the seals they'd killed. By the way, did you notice the Fighting-Grass Fakemon were an okapi and a giraffe? (In fairness I drew based on memory instead of looking up okapi images) Same. I've yet to enter Kalos Route 14 because of various delays, but on the plus side, I've made bank working at Hotel Richissime.

I forget why, but recently I remembered an episode of Full House and realized, "You know, Kimmy was a jerk." Raidra (talk) 04:21, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

Oh, by the way, I watched the entire Chadtronic cursed commercial series so far and thoroughly enjoyed it. I thought there would be a lot I'd already seen from Shayy, but I was surprised to see many I'd never seen before (including one really weird Sprite commercial). With the few that have been covered by both channels, it's interesting to compare and contrast their reactions. Raidra (talk) 04:18, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

Chuck Jones: Literary Titan

That's good! I'm waiting for the rain on Route 14 to stop so I can have horde encounters. I caught a Goomy, so when it becomes a level 50 Sliggo I can go back to Route 14 and wait for the rain to start.

Yep! I think he did the Rikki-Tikki-Tavi one too. They used to show those Chuck Jones Rudyard Kipling adaptations a lot on Nickelodeon back in the late '80s-early 90s. One thing I remember was how they made Tabaqui (the jackal from The Jungle Book) look so much like Wile E. Coyote (I found a picture). I also seem to remember Nickelodeon showing a non-Disney version of The Little Mermaid, but I honestly don't know who made it and I don't remember much about it. It's not the anime adaptation because that was a series and this was a movie version (Maybe thirty minutes long, but however long it was, it was a one-shot). Raidra (talk) 16:49, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

ChuckJonesTabaqui, the Green Coyote Pokemon

That's okay.

Sounds good!

It kept raining on Route 14, so I decided to look for hordes the hard way (going through the tall grass and hoping). I took advantage of the rain and battles, leveling my level 30 Goomy into a level 51 Goodra. After days, I finally caught an Ekans in addition to a Bellsprout. Having caught all the Pokemon I wanted, I finally went to the Scary House for the cutscene. After that was done, I left the house and noticed the rain had stopped. I thought, " that all I had to do this whole time!?" It all worked out, though. Right now I'm growing some more Berries.

At least he was still a jackal. I heard there was some adaptation (possibly a scrapped one) in which Tabaqui was portrayed as (or would have been portrayed as) a hyena. Breaking science news- Jackals are not hyenas; they are in fact different animals. Here's looking forward to the adaptation of The Shy Little Kitten featuring a civet :-/

I'm not sure because it's been so long. Something I remember much better was the fairy tale and folktale series Nick Jr. had for years. I only found out a few years ago it was an anime. One of my favorites was their version of "The Donkey Cabbages". Raidra (talk) 00:46, 24 January 2021 (UTC)

The ferrepardki


Right now I'm growing Maranga Berries in Pokemon Y. I'm trying two different kinds of Mulch to see which has the better result.

Just think, if you keep reading, you'll be as ticked off at the botched Disney+ adaptation as the long-time fans ;-)

Earlier I was wondering, "What is this modern horror movie trend in which the movie summary is 'Some weird, gruesome, and nonsensical stuff happens, and then it seems that the hero/heroine is going to win, and then he/she doesn't!' and why do people keep claiming it's innovative when it's already been done to death?" Raidra (talk) 23:52, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

The Ol' Rope-A-Trope

Speaking of tropes, I got thinking earlier today about the horror story trope in which someone gets a transplant and then they become haunted or start doing evil things because heaven knows that tissue & organs are evil and it's not like people of sound mind are free to make their own freaking choices or anything. :-/ Why is it never the person with the transplant does good things because the person with the organ was a good person, or maybe they get a transplant and nothing unusual freaking happens? How about let's not use tropes that might make people afraid of getting a transplant.

I'm using Boost Mulch on the one and Rich Mulch on the other. I've also used Surprise Mulch in the past to help with Berry mutations. There is something called Amaze Mulch that has the properties of the previous three kinds, but I need a Maranga Berry to make it, so we'll see how the harvest goes.

It is strange. It would only make sense if they wanted to shorten the name, but then again they could have shortened it to just fruit (PSNCureFruit, Mint Fruit, Burnt Fruit, etc.). I also don't get why the Leek was called a Stick until Sword & Shield. I think Americans can grasp the concepts of tree fruit and scallions as easily as berries and sticks. Raidra (talk) 16:40, 3 February 2021 (UTC)

Also, speaking of Berries, look at this picture and then look specifically who's that Pokemon in the upper right corner. I guess it's really no different than a person eating hot dogs. Raidra (talk) 22:08, 3 February 2021 (UTC)
Also, I just realized that dish has a Jaboca Berry, which is super rare. It looks like Mallow just took a rare Berry and flung it into a random Pokemon meal as a garnish. I suddenly wish misfortune on that character. Raidra (talk) 22:13, 3 February 2021 (UTC)
Breaking berry news- The Boost Mulch tree produced three fruits and the Rich Mulch tree produced five. I went ahead and used one of the Maranga Berries to produce three bags of Amaze Mulch (I love that you get three bags of Mulch at a time). Raidra (talk) 00:44, 4 February 2021 (UTC)

Richie Rich's surprisingly inferior cousin, Boosty Boost

I was surprised too. Maybe sometime later I'll do more experimentation. I think for now I'll do Pokemon Amie with my Pokemon before heading onto the Laverre (Fairy-type) Gym. After I beat the Gym maybe I'll take another break from Pokemon and start one of the Animal Crossing games I got for Christmas.

Speaking of Berries, please check out my latest video, "This Berry is abnormally large!", for a Berry model that took an unexpected turn.

Awesome! I'll check it out. Raidra (talk) 01:00, 7 February 2021 (UTC)

Also, my title reminded me of when TyranitarTube caught an Alolan Persian (in a ROM hack). He joked, "Hey, it's Post Malone's cousin, Water Melone!" What made it even funnier was he started laughing at his own joke. X-D Raidra (talk) 01:03, 7 February 2021 (UTC)
I loved it!  The Hypno part came out of nowhere, but it was great that Emily and the others fought against it and beat it. It's sweet how Jenny and the others care for Emily (Well, the nurse cared more about the bet, but most people cared).  There was a lot of emotion, humor, and other things that made it a good story. Raidra (talk) 04:21, 8 February 2021 (UTC)

Alolan Watermelon

That's okay; you don't want to rush things.

People were excited about the Galarian forms until they got ambushed by Galarian Stunfisk in the mines, and then they thought, "AAAHHHH!! I don't want Galarian Pokemon anymore!" Seriously, though, I remember a couple YouTubers getting excited about the Galarian Zigzagoon reveal because it was a regional variant of a Gen III Pokemon. Having G. Ziggy in the promo was a smart move in my opinion because of that. I wonder if they had to do things over again, would they have introduced Alolan forms for non-Kantonian Pokemon (Of course, I think there are a number of things they could have done differently in Gen VII). I remember seeing Galarian Meowth in TyranitarTube's gameplay and my jaw dropping. Moments like that are why I prefer not to be spoiled, so I'm glad GameFreak has learned not to reveal everything in the trailers.

I got New Leaf and Happy Home Designer (both for the 3Ds). New Leaf seems like a cool game and I think HHD will be a lot of fun too because I get to work with design, furnishings, and things like that. I know it's neat to design, furnish, and decorate hideouts and things for my comic book characters. Here's an entry I shared with Doom back in 2016- Raidra (talk) 21:22, 9 February 2021 (UTC)

Today The Official Pokemon YouTube Channel uploaded a video called "Get ready for the Pokémon Day Virtual Concert with Post Malone!" X-D Raidra (talk) 16:47, 11 February 2021 (UTC)

Crazy Redd no longer the worst red

Oh, yikes! I'm sorry to hear that, though it's good it wasn't an infection. I hope it heals quickly. Raidra (talk) 15:54, 15 February 2021 (UTC)

Coincidental concert

That's good! Issues with hands/feet or fingers/toes are always irritating, so I'm glad it's clearing up.

I know, it just seems so random. I saw that and thought, "I can't even!" X-D I wonder if TyranitarTube has found out about it. (In another timely event, I literally typed that and then noticed Ttar had posted a new video. I think I'll leave a comment about it)

In real life I've been shoveling snow and in Pokemon Y I've been getting my butt kicked in Frost Cavern. I'm starting to get ticked off at some Pokemon NPCs because there the evil team is acting up and they go, "Well, I guess I'll have random battles instead of doing anything to help the situation!" Seriously, when there are like twelve trainers (with 1-3 Pokemon apiece) in an area and just two Grunts (with maybe one Pokemon apiece), it shouldn't be up to you to do something. Raidra (talk) 22:57, 16 February 2021 (UTC)

Discord would have done a better job sailing the Costa Concordia

Oh, that should be interesting! His videos on the Fyre Festival, Fallout 66, and No Man's Sky were great. Hopefully Chavezzslovakia and/or Skittensays will do a reaction too (It's in several parts, but Skitten also reacted to Internet Historian and Sorrow TV's video about the infamous "My Immortal" fan-fiction). I also remember the Concordia incident being on Planet Dolan's list "9 People Who Caused Catastrophes for Dumb Reasons". Hopefully PD will have a revival because they haven't uploaded much recently. Their videos on bad customers are classics.

Yay! :-D Raidra (talk) 13:43, 19 February 2021 (UTC)

My cross-generation to bear

It's a tricky subject, but in my opinion it's fine to count them as Johto Pokemon. All you'd need to do is explain why they're more common in Sinnoh. From what I gather, there are four different types of Gen IV cross-generational Pokemon- pre-evolutions produced by Incense (Lax Incense, Rock Incense, Wave Incense, etc.), evolutions caused by items and sometimes trading (Dusk Stone, Shiny Stone, Razor Claw, Dubious Disc, etc.), evolutions caused by a special location (Moss Rock, Ice Rock, and special magnetic field), and evolutions caused by knowing a certain move (Double Hit, Ancient Power, etc.).  The first three are easy because you can just have a character say the Pokemon are rare in Johto because they need items from other places or training in locations outside of Johto, but the last one is trickier. You could say something like they're rarer in Johto because they usually aren't trained or bred in the particular ways that would give them the moves which would allow them to evolve, but it's up to you what explanation you use. You might also want to consider if you'd want to mention the Sinnoh-related Pokemon GO evolution items (Sinnoh Stone, Mossy Lure Module, Glacial Lure Module, and Magnetic Lure Module) or the Mystery Dungeon evolution items.

I'm a little tired of Pokemon Y right now, so I may put it on hiatus for a while and start Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

Have you had any problems with the YouTube app on a tablet? It works fine on the computer or the smart phone, and it works decently in the Safari app on my iPad, but when I try to use the app on the iPad, it claims it needs an update and refuses to let me do anything. It's frustrating. Raidra (talk) 23:04, 21 February 2021 (UTC)

A Smashing Good Time

It's aggravating when websites/apps have "updates" that make things worse. We'll see if there's anything I can do.

I looked for the New Leaf cartridge and I can't find it. I opened up the case and it wasn't there, and I can't remember if I ever opened the case previously to confirm it was there. If it was ever there, it means it's around here somewhere, but if I never actually saw it was there, it means I can't confirm it was ever in the case and someone may have cheated the relative who bought it for me. I appreciate the advice and well-wishes, though. Hopefully I can find the cartridge.

Oh, that's good! I love how it references the Sinjoh Ruins as well.

I confused someone on Pokemon Showdown the other day. I made some Power Rangers theme teams and one of them, based on a reoccurring character, had a Tyranitar, a Shiny Incineroar, a Staraptor, a Ledian, a Deoxys Speed Form, and a Zekrom. You notice one of those things is not like the others. One opponent beat five of my Pokemon and then, before beating the last one, asked, "Ummm...why is Ledian there? Please explain!" I explained it was a team based on a Power Rangers character & one season had him wearing a red costume with a five-pointed star and we shared a laugh. Raidra (talk) 03:34, 25 February 2021 (UTC)

We have been Poke blessed

I agree they did a great job. It was certainly more than I was expecting! The Sinnoh remakes would have been good enough, but the addition of that other game has really made people excited. There's already speculation about if there will be other Legends games in the future. When it comes to the remakes, it'll be interesting to see what changes they make and what stays the same. Luigifan100 brought up an interesting thought, which was, "I am interested in how those Poffin desserts will be made this time around too!" I replied, "I also wonder if they'll make changes to the Poffins. If you look at the Pokeblock article, they changed colors from RSE to ORAS for no discernible reason. I don't know if they'll do anything similar, but I think the flavors & colors are fine as they are. I also wonder if they'll make Poffin making similar to Curry making (If there's a Poffindex, it should be much easier to fill)." Raidra (talk) 03:10, 27 February 2021 (UTC)

Sinnoh what I mean

I'm just glad you're okay. I was thinking about checking in on you. How are things?

I had forgotten that if I knew it, and that's a very good question! Hopefully it won't be something boring like going to GameStop or Wal-Mart. Here's hoping they have challenges like the Regis, or do something like the e-Reader cards, or have a special area in the game (like the Entree Forest in BW or the Friend Safari in XY).

This morning I watched an old Tweety and Sylvester cartoon, and after reflecting on Granny sounding like a younger Mulan's grandmother (because, you know, it was a younger Mulan's grandmother), I reflected on how old cartoons have a character trying one plan and then immediately moving on to the next one when it fails. It doesn't make them bad; you just wonder why they didn't try a certain plan again when it almost worked the first time. I say that because there was a scene in which Sylvester tried to get to the tugboat Tweety was on by using a rubber raft. Tweety took out a dart, called out, "Look what I found! Here, you can have it!" and threw it, puncturing and deflating the raft. I thought, "If all he had was the one dart, why not try it again?" It's possible he had another dart/more sharp objects, but that could lead to a punchline about him visiting the dart/sharp object factory or something. I also saw another cartoon in which a chicken made a muscle and the resulting bulge was so big it exuded out his feathers (2:57-304). Fun sight gag or body horror- you decide! Raidra (talk) 16:25, 6 March 2021 (UTC)

Reply to "And Farfetch'd Away"

That's good. My aunt and I will be working on taxes and anything else that needs attention the next few days, so I won't be online as much.

I decided to continue my Pokemon Y playthrough. I finished Frost Cavern (Thank goodness!) and Route 17, and as I headed to Anistar City, I got a Holo clip from Calem saying he was waiting outside the Gym to fight me so I'd better be ready. Guess who's going to be waiting outside the gym for a week or two while I'm back in Camphrier Town growing & cross-breeding the new Berries I got on Route 17.

Local Girl Becomes Deep Sea Creature Catching Champion

Hooray! Hopefully more bugs will appear now that spring is coming. Doesn't Redd also try to sell you forgeries sometimes or am I thinking of somebody else? At least he raffles off festival items.

Speaking of tuna, there was an episode of SpongeBob with a rival restaurant called the Sea Chicken Shack. At one point a tuna is seen waiting in line inside. This is morbid, but I just recently remembered that albacore tuna is called "chicken of the sea" (which is where the brand name comes from) and started wondering what was in the sea chicken meal that the tuna was going to purchase and consume. You should tell the Animal Crossing tuna that they're better off with you than with the Sea Chicken Shack people. Raidra (talk) 22:02, 14 March 2021 (UTC)

By the way, if you have time, could you please read this story I posted on another site and share your thoughts? A heads up that this story has some disturbing material. Raidra (talk) 17:37, 18 March 2021 (UTC)

Redd plus blue makes purple

That reminds me of this Batman game I have on my old computer. It's basically a series of minigames, and one of them has Two-Face challenging you on whether you can "tell the difference between real jewelry and its phony twin". The easiest level has just three or four pieces of jewelry per round while the hardest has five or six, and you have to pick the two pieces that match. Another challenge is turn order being decided by Two-Face flipping his coin, so he may have multiple turns in a row, you may have multiple turns in a row, or it may be fairly even. There are a couple art related mini games- one involving color by number and another involving painting. Alfred compliments you as you color, though sometimes I feel he's just looking for things to say. You don't need you to patronize me, Alfred!

Thank you, I appreciate that. I hadn't thought about that, but you could. Incidentally, free feel to post stories on the site if you'd like (If you'd rather not, that's fine too).

The new Pokemon Evoltuion animation looks great. Raidra (talk) 02:15, 20 March 2021 (UTC)


Thank you, I appreciate it. :-)

Speaking of colors, I saw a funny video recently. It was Amy Jo Johnson and Jason David Frank (Kimberly the Pink Ranger and Tommy the Green Ranger from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) doing a panel at a convention. At one point JDF meant to say that when he became the Green Ranger, green wasn't a popular color, but instead what came out was, "Green wasn't really a color back then." Amy Jo and the presenter both laughed, and the presenter joked, "Green was young back then..." Raidra (talk) 22:30, 23 March 2021 (UTC)

Chilling with Squidward's cousins

I know what you mean because sometimes I get recommended clips from/ads for shows or channels I have never shown any interest in and have no interest in (or actually dislike). Sometimes I have to click the Not interested, Don't recommend this channel, and Don't show this ad again buttons repeatedly before the algorithm catches on that I have no flipping interest. As for Animorphs, that's one of those series that was ever-present for a couple years and then just sank without a bubble. I never read any of the books or paid attention to the TV show, but I have seen an article saying it was more disturbing than people remember. It sounds like they took a concept that should have been whimsical and just made it dark for no reason. There are correct ways to do the "should have been whimsical, but it turned dark instead" concept and then there are ways that make people wonder, "What am I reading?" Raidra (talk) 00:30, 24 March 2021 (UTC)

Life is Strange and This Series is Somehow Still Going

I've seen totem poles that were less wooden than some of the characters' faces, but I admit the scenery is gorgeous. The emotion powers seem interesting, so we'll see if they pull it off or mess it up. "The award winning series..." It won awards? That AdumPlaze video was a comedy delight! X-D Now I'm imagining a game in which glitches infect a town and the hero has to get rid of them. I remember someone putting Missingno and other glitch Pokémon as number one on a list of scariest video game characters. Their reasoning was these things distort reality, making them the Pokémon equivalent of eldritch abominations.

On the subject of Squidward and video game graphics, here's Patrick has a stroke by Charmx. Raidra (talk) 15:17, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

Hands, hands, handy handy hands...

I mowed my lawn for the first time this year. It seemed especially tiring, so I guess I'll have to rebuild my stamina.

I'd say you're right. That emotional power thing sounds cool, so hopefully they do that, "There's gonna be some racism and/or sexism directed at the main character that's not even slightly realistic or subtle"- You'll recall that this was also my fear for the live-action Mulan remake. I don't know if that particular fear turned out to be true, but I do know the remake turned out to be even worse than I was expecting.

Atlantis: The Lost Empire is so underrated. Shoot, they didn't even include the princess from that movie in Wreck-It Ralph 2.


That would be interesting. It could also be something along the lines of Rotom (but without an annoying anime version that dumps all over the basic concept). It would be interesting to see what Missingno's Ability and signature move would be. By the way, a YouTuber I no longer follow had a series of battles versus Pokemon in human form and that includes this video. Raidra (talk) 01:50, 31 March 2021 (UTC)

I think showing this on loop would be more respectful to Mulan than the remake was- Raidra (talk) 15:09, 31 March 2021 (UTC)

"Hey, look, I made a bridge. It only took me like, what? Ten seconds? Eleven, tops." In looking the movie up on IMDb to find that quote, I also learned that James Garner voiced the main villain. It's interesting to look back at movies and see cast members you didn't know about at the time. In any case, Vinny was also the one who was trying to raise money to help with his mother's flower shop. Vinny: a loving relative and a man who follows his passion & becomes good at it. We should all try to be more like Vinny

That's good!

I like it! I agree a part Dark typing would be fitting since it could represent corruption, and I like the idea of the glitch Pokemon sharing a signature move. It reminds me of the Tapu having a signature move or the Ultra Beasts sharing a signature ability. It's also reminiscent of Darkrai putting its opponent to sleep and then damaging it each turn. Like Ho-oh was said to have created the Legendary Beasts, maybe Missingno could be the creator of the other glitch types. Raidra (talk) 00:12, 7 April 2021 (UTC)

Bone Blade, let it rip!

Sounds good! Something else came to mind too. There are some moves, such as Ancient Power, which can raise the user's stats in addition to damaging the opponent. Just a thought, but maybe some of these moves could have secondary effects (raising the user's stats, flinching the opponent, etc.).

I've been binge-watching Siskel & Ebert rag on bad movies, and of course they talked about North. North- the movie so insensitively written that the scene with an actress who went on to commit murder-suicide is not the creepiest thing in it. Raidra (talk) 17:20, 12 April 2021 (UTC)

North- I can do bad all by itself

I also learned just last night that Richard Belzer was in it (He was part of the "Flow Time" scene I think is the worst and most unsettling part of the movie). I found that out from someone talking about how Belzer brought it up during a roast of Rob Reiner. I swear that movie is the definition of "Let's cast this film with random celebrities" (Not bad celebrities since Reba is an icon; just random celebrities). In any case, the first minute or two of this video has a cameo that's actually adorable-

Whang is probably one of the most genuine YouTubers. You notice how most of his thumbnails have him drinking a cup of something to brace himself for whatever strangeness he's about to cover.

Ah, an R&B classic! Here's another good one-

I think maybe the most adorable part was when he shook hands with Johnny.

I've noted before that when I first saw the preview for Transcendence (a Johnny Depp movie from a few years ago), I literally thought for a moment that they had made another Lawnmower Man movie. There actually was a Lawnmower Man sequel, but my understanding is it's considered one of the worst sequels ever made because it completely ignored the ending of the first movie. People talked about virtual reality a good deal in the '90s- how it could change society, how it could prove dangerous, etc. A few years ago I reflected on that and thought, "You know, nothing ever became of that." Now VR is being talked about again, but it's more about gaming than anything. Thankfully the future was less Lawnmower Man movies or Code Lyoko or even VR Troopers and more excitable YouTubers navigating elevators and being fascinated by loaves of bread.

Isn't Caddi the same guy who had a "Badvent Calendar" of the worst games he'd ever played? That was a funny video. Speaking of YouTubers, are AdumPlayz and YourMovieSucks the same guy? Raidra (talk) 20:29, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

Mild-mannered AdumPlayz and his secret identity YourMovieSucks

I'm glad you liked it!

That's odd. I haven't encountered that, but I do know that the site has been under maintenance for about three weeks and only recently resumed regular operations, so maybe the issue is a result of that. Let me know if it keeps happening. Sounds good!

I recently watched a YMS video with an AdumPlayz promo at the end and thought, "Wait, they're the same guy!?" It blew my mind for some reason. Speaking of countdowns, AniMat did a video with the worst animated movies of the 2000s and a video with the best animated movies of the 2000s. The worst list had "How Bad Can I Be" from The Lorax between segments and the best had "Everything Is Awesome" from The Lego Movie between segments. It was the best between-segment song choice since TheMysteriousMrEnter played "I Know a Song That Gets on Everybody's Nerves" in his Top 20 Worst Theme Songs video.

Last night I watched a video in which a doctor was giving a tutorial on gastric lavage on a medical mannequin (in case I want to do a story with someone getting their stomach pumped). About three and a half minutes in, the mannequin blinked. I was surprised and then I remembered, "Oh, yeah, they do that now." I saw it blink again later on. A quick look at the comments told me I wasn't the only one caught off guard when the mannequin blinked. Earlier the doctor said something like, "Here's Stanley, our stand-in. Let's say he's taken [some amount of some drug] in a self-harm attempt." Dang, why you gotta do poor Stanley like that!? You didn't have to make the poor mannequin suicidal! Raidra (talk) 23:04, 22 April 2021 (UTC)

The other day someone mentioned lemons and I thought of, "Hi, this is Mrs. Lemon Lemon Lemon from the cheese company!" Also, there was a video talking about weird court cases and someone commented, "Bring in the Dancing Lobsters!" It's both amazing and wonderful how people are still thinking of The Amanda Show. I thought some segments were hit or miss, but the ones that hit were hilarious. Raidra (talk) 14:30, 23 April 2021 (UTC)

Firefox, the Blank Browser Pokemon

It makes sense. I've been having issues with Safari and some other apps on my iPad. I'm going to have to look for solutions or updates (or undoing updates if the updates are what caused the problems in the first freaking place).

  • Power Rangers: We had the greatest crossover in history!
  • Marvel Cinematic Universe: No, we had the greatest crossover in history!
  • The Amanda Show: Amateurs.
  • MCU: What was that, punk!?
  • The Amanda Show: (reveals segment with Totally Kyle and the prank call old man on a spoof of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?) Amateurs!

I think they both were at one point, though I want to say Drake was there from the beginning. Have you ever seen the segments on All That with Amanda as an advice columnist getting enraged as she answers stupid questions from viewers? Here's my reaction to something from one of the segments.

  • Letter writer: My mom makes my peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with the peanut butter on top, but I want the peanut butter on the bottom. What should I do?
  • Me: Ask your mom to make them with the peanut butter on the bottom.
  • Amanda: Turn the stinkin' sandwich over!!!
  • Me: Oh... Yeah, you could do that too...

Later on in the segment she told someone else, "Go to [name of city] and visit [name of previous person]! He'll be the one staring at his peanut butter and jelly sandwich trying to figure out how to turn it over!"

JohneAwesome's Twitch channel allows viewers to earn lobsters instead of points. I don't know why, but it is worth noting the logo of his second channel is a dog dressed like a lobster. Raidra (talk) 01:09, 24 April 2021 (UTC)

This is library!

It's strange that the filter thought the articles were something to be blocked, but I'm glad you found what the issue was.

  • Librarian: Time to feed the parrot! (takes cover off cage)
  • Parrot: "Time to feed the parrot!"
  • Librarian: Shush!
  • Parrot: No!
  • Librarian: (covers cage without feeding parrot

I'm pretty sure All That is the show that launched the careers of Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell. One reoccurring character Kenan played was Superdude, a Superman spoof who was lactose intolerant. His foes included an evil milkman and a guy made of butter. Kel's most popular reoccurring character was probably the guy who worked at Goodburger. That segment later became a feature film. Raidra (talk) 22:36, 25 April 2021 (UTC)

All That and a Bag of Roses

I love that title! X-D

Naw, I don't think it's weird. That kind of thing has happened to me too, usually with songs. The band Chicago had a song called "Take Me Back to Chicago" which makes me nostalgic about a time and place I never experienced (It sometimes makes me nostalgic for my own younger days too, like when my Dad used to take me to a local comic book and miscellany shop, so it's just a nostalgia-inducing song in general for me). There are also lots of people who get into things from before they were born, like people in their 20s or 30s dressing up like 1950s greasers/poodle skirt girls, playing 1890s-style baseball, or dressing up in Victorian fashion.

New Pokemon Snap is here! I'm watching a couple let's plays and there's actually a note in the game explaining why they're calling apples "Fluffruits". It said something like, "They may look like ordinary apples, but they're lighter and easier to throw." I thought, "I'm so glad you actually explained this because I've been sitting here thinking, 'How are those not apples?'!" Understandably the players kept calling them apples anyway (I mean, they never said the Fluffruit wasn't an apple, just that it was lighter). Raidra (talk) 19:49, 1 May 2021 (UTC)

It looks like people are making their fight predictions- Raidra (talk) 01:29, 2 May 2021 (UTC)

An Airpple a day keeps Nurse Joy

That's good! Imagine basketball players in the Pokémon world missing shots and being heckled with, "You threw an Airpple!"

I understand what that's like.

Mentioning drinks made me wonder why there isn't a juicer to use on the fruits. On the plus side, I learned there is a Lemonade Stand Set. Maybe it'll come back this year.

The other night I was watching a Pokémon video and it said, "Makuhita attacks with its pocket sand..." It was funny and also reminded me of something. I have a book called Ancient Chinese Weapons: A Martial Artist’s Guide by Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming. In the projectile and thrown weapons chapter it mentioned something called poison sand or red sand hand. It was sand mixed with poison (explaining the red coloring) and thrown into an enemy's face. I said, "There you have it- pocket sand is a legitimate martial arts weapon and technique." Raidra (talk) 19:16, 2 May 2021 (UTC)

Oh, I forgot something. I found this and thought you might be interested- I hadn't heard of this version of the song before now. Raidra (talk) 20:20, 2 May 2021 (UTC)

Animal Crossing: Rock You Like a Hurricane edition

Sounds interesting.

I wonder if he did it more than once (simply because I can imagine him doing it more than once). I remember a while back you sent me the video of King of the Hill as an anime opening. It included a scene of him throwing his pocket sand, and someone commented, "The fact that Dale announces his attacks means he's an anime character."

I can only imagine how Blathers freaked out when presented with one of those.

It does sound like him, but I looked it up and it's actually Tennessee Ernie Ford. He's probably most famous for the song "16 Tons", and I learned that "Tennessee Ernie Ford" is used as a nickname for having an ace and a six in Texas hold 'em. A while back I found a list of playing card nicknames. Some are pretty clever & fun (For instance, two fours can be called a "Luke Skywalker" because "may the fours be with you"), but a few are shockingly offensive, so be warned if you decide to look through the list. Raidra (talk) 15:24, 6 May 2021 (UTC)

Benny and the Jets

I loved it. The battle was good and I like how you portrayed Eddy/Ernie dealing with his trauma (It was also funny that Bugsy was happy about Emily liking the pun). It's good that Emily learned about Eddy's past and he had a reunion with Andy's mother. The part where we got to learn more about Andy was moving. There is one thing I'd change.

Upon gazing at the double level house, a wave of memories wash over his mind, including one where he and Andy frolicked in the yard and another where he assisted Andy and her family with decorating their Christmas tree. The inside of his body soon filled up with joy as a tear glided down his cheek.

I would change this slightly to make it clearer it's Eddy who's having the flashback.

I saw a Family Guy segment with Paul Simon singing a song and I genuinely don't know if it's actually him or not. Right now I'm assuming it's a good impersonator.

That made me have flashbacks to Amazon Trail. It was made by the same bunch that did Oregon Trail, and one of the challenges was to photograph the various flora and fauna. That meant exploring the forests for the various plants & animals, catching the various fish, and spotting dolphins & manatees in the river while rafting (and trying not to crash the raft or sail into a whirlpool while snapping a picture). It wasn't required to finish the game, but you got bonus points for each category you completed, and I hated to leave the tasks unfinished. It was fun at times and tedious at times, but it was always a good feeling to complete the tasks. Raidra (talk) 22:30, 7 May 2021 (UTC)

By the way, speaking of writing, I recently re-read a scene I wrote a while back. At one point the evil scientist asks his accomplice something and the accomplice replies, "Well, being a scientist, Dante, you should know that it depends on various factors." I like that line because to me it has the same energy as the Dexter's Laboratory episode in which Dexter asks his computer something and it/she replies with a sassy, "I don't know, Dexter. You're the genius." Then at the end of the scene the evil scientist leaves and the accomplice simply says, "Schmuck." Raidra (talk) 00:28, 8 May 2021 (UTC)

I have the CD for Amazon Trail II (I got it at a Goodwill store), but I only played for a few minutes because I decided all the changes from the first game would take some getting used to. Maybe I should see what pointers I can pick up from Brutalmoose. ~takes a look at the comments section and sees more than one comment about how he ignored instructions~ Well, scratch that. A lot of these old games are neat. I've been thinking about getting my old laptop and playing some Oregon Trail or Amazon Trail. When I play more Oregon Trail I want to name my party members after Power Rangers characters since I'm getting into the franchise again. Looking at the Humongous Entertainment games, I recognize Spy Fox from when JohneAwesome did a playthrough. Raidra (talk) 02:18, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

By the way, I don't remember if I ever mentioned it, but I made a blog a few months ago about the American Film Institute's 100 greatest American thrillers list (from 2001).

Water, water everywhere

That feeling when you realize you were so busy celebrating your own birthday that you forgot to wish your friend a happy birthday I hope you had a good one! We went to my brother's place and had pizza, cake, and punch.

I like it! It's cool how you wrote a story based on that clip. Also, I'm so glad this game isn't a tie-in to the movie. Finally there's a piece of Titanic media that doesn't claim to be an epic love story or have a dog rapping or shooting ray guns.

That's good. Another old game I played a lot back in the day (and have had to drag out an old computer to play in recent years) is Secret Agent. Here's a trailer, though it bothers me that the guy lost a life to the ninja because he was careless (because what would a master spy know about things like being stealthy or using weapons?)-

You're certainly welcome. I hope you like it. Raidra (talk) 02:45, 19 May 2021 (UTC)

I think All Things Lost mentioned that in a video (If you haven't watched his videos yet, I'd suggest you do because they're great). Reading that article, there's a lot to unpack. Here are a few things that got my attention.

  • "...with the footage interspersed with stock footage of icebergs..." Wait, they had stock footage back in 1912? That practice has been around for a long time, then.
  • "Gibson wore the same clothes as on the night of the disaster." Dang, that's just...dang... That must have made things even more traumatic for her.
  • "The lifeboat's plug could not be found..." Insert whichever clip of JonTron asking "what" you feel is appropriate here. Seriously, how in blazes do you get a lifeboat for your ship and think, "Hey, shouldn't there be a plug? Aw, I'm sure it's not important, so let's not worry about making sure the passengers can find it!"?
  • "As they struggled in the water, Gibson heard what she described as a 'terrible cry that rang out from people who were thrown into the sea and others who were afraid for their loved ones.'" This may be the most horrifying part to me. What those people went through is tragic on so many levels.
  • "On returning to New York City, she co-wrote the script and played a fictionalized version of herself," and "Gibson later described her decision to participate as an 'opportunity to pay tribute to those who gave their lives on that awful night.' Jeffrey Richards suggests that it was more likely that Brulatour persuaded her that the disaster offered an opportunity to advance her career." I was very surprised to hear she wrote the script. On one hand I'm glad she was allowed to write it, but on the other I wonder how much she felt compelled to write. It sounds like her lover made her write a script, so she tried to make the best of it. Still, I wonder how much impact her lover had.
  • "When she concludes her story, her mother urges Dorothy's fiancé to leave the navy as it is too dangerous a career. Jack ultimately rejects the mother's advice, deciding that he must do his duty for his flag and his country. Dorothy's father is moved by his patriotism and the film ends with him blessing their marriage." I understand wanting to convey concepts such as not being bound by fear and putting one's emotions aside for a higher goal, but why can't we ever have movies in which a character says, "I never want to that again!" and someone replies, "Yeah, that's fair," or a character warns, "I want you to promise me you won't do that again!" and the other one replies, "Okay."?
  • "Audiences had previously seen survivors of disasters only as unspeaking 'objects' shown as part of a story told by someone else. Gibson, by contrast, was a survivor given voice as the narrator of what was ostensibly her personal story." This may be the best written line in the article.
  • "However, some criticized the questionable tastefulness of portraying a disaster that had so recently occurred." This is still a concern. I remember hearing that when a trailer for United 93 was shown in New York theaters, there were people who left in tears because it was too soon.

I also looked at one of the articles in the "See also" section, In Nacht und Eis, and part of the plot summary reads, "The captain swims to the lifeboat but when he is offered a spot, he instead swims away and goes underwater to drown." That makes it sound like the captain wanted to be on the lifeboat, but then when he was offered a place he said, "Well now I'm not gonna do it!" Speaking of which, the other night Blameitonjorge did a livestream and he reacted to a video called The Pingu Iceberg. I thought it would be stupid, but no, it had fun trivia and theories that actually made sense. It was also funny seeing Jorge react to the Pingu memes.

Thanks! Raidra (talk) 17:35, 24 May 2021 (UTC)

Noot noot, That's the Sound of the Police!

I wonder if the Pokémon Eiscue was inspired by Pingu in any way since its "Noice Face" is round like Pingu's head.

"Period cramps be like..." "'Something killed him, he's dead! I can turn the corner now!" This guy is a savage! X-D This seems like one of those shows that caused a lot of trouble, especially for the network. When you're supposed to be a fact-based channel, it damages your brand to have a show in which fake material is presented as real. Sadly this isn't the only fake thing they produced. I hadn't seen the whole thing, but Billiam did a video called, "When Animal Planet Made Up a Bunch of Stuff". What happened was for a (thankfully) short period of time, the channel was making fake documentaries saying things like evidence proving the existence of mermaids had been found and the Megalodon was found to be extant. This did not have positive results. A moment of silence for all the schoolchildren who had reports using material from what they thought was a legitimate science documentary only to be clowned.

SoDaftPotato made a drawing of Pingu and the scary walrus in the comments section of a blog I made a while back.

"The New Jersey Devil's a wuss!"

I have no idea why this is sideways.

An episode of Mostly True Tales: Urban Legends Revealed had a segment with someone dying from "the poisonous tusks" of "the miniature water elephants of Thailand." I thought, "That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard!" Needless to say, that myth was debunked. I think it's funny to see the tiny hippos eating chips. I remember Matt Shea talking about that commercial in a video about weird Canadian commercials. It would be nice if there were more commercials warning not to trust everything you see & hear. Speaking of commercials and YouTubers, I just recently subscribed to Chadtronic, who's one of the best at covering cursed commercials even if I can't understand his rating system to save my life.

Definitely. It's good when someone has their own style instead of trying to have the same look as everyone else.

Nursery Rhyme Legends Revealed

Oh, cool! I enjoyed watching it when they had it on TLC years ago (back when it was The Learning Channel and not whatever that mess is now). Some were horrifying, but others were downright funny. One episode actually inspired one of my comic books. It told a story about a guy in Belgium who rigged his house with various deathtraps. Police came to investigate (I forget why, but it was probably either neighbors heard something or the guy went missing). They found him killed by one of his own deathtraps. They eventually tore the house down because they decided it was too dangerous to be occupied. I thought it was fake, but it turned out that no, it was real (You may have heard it on a Planet Dolan countdown). I decided that scenario would make for a good issue. I know what you mean. If I recall correctly, they claimed "Ring Around the Rosie" was some kind of pirate code when it wasn't.

Cursed commercials seem like the definition of "You never know what you're going to see" because it turns out there are so many different ways a commercial can be cursed. It could be a meth addict in the shower, it could be old guys shooting at skydivers to sell soda, it could be car dealers trying way too hard to cash in on current trends, or it could be the Monopoly Guy Fortnite dancing. I also love to see Chad's reaction to a commercial I've already seen Shayy react to so I can compare & contrast. Both agree that a hyper-sexed giraffe-human hybrid is not a great way to advertise a beverage, and that having a computerized voice call, "Nipper!" in a way that it can be confused for another word is not a smart idea either.
