I'm serious, this movie is awesome! It's the 2007 remake of the Broadway musical, which in turn is based on a 1960s movie. So it's obviousley based on 1960s Baltimore.
Nikki Blonsky started her whole career in this movie, and she came with a bang, might I say! ;D Amazing singer!
And another song from the movie that featured John Travolta as the main characters MOTHER Edna Turnblad, and with a fake girls voice, high heels and a 30 pound fatsuit, he sang and danced amazingly! ;D Welcome to the 60's
Don't just ignore my post because I'm annoying (sometimes), like you guys usually do.
Da Robot, that was mighty awesome. I cracked up at the Yoshi's Story interval, the Kirby & Yoshi skit and the secret bonus video with Ike in ;D The rest of it was funny too, but they were the highlights!
This was an episode of Steven Spielberg's anthology series "Amazing Stories" that was on for a few years in the 80's. This is the only episode that was animated, but it's usually everyone's favorite.
Of note, it was written and directed by Brad Bird, who currently works at Pixar. He also wrote and directed both The Incredibles and Ratatouille, as well as wrote the screenplay for and directed the very underrated Iron Giant for Warner Bros. According to the IMDb, The Family Dog was his first job as a director, but it's every bit as brilliant as his feature films.
@ Nester, I know I'm seen that Family Dog show before, didn't it get turned into an actual show?
It was spun off into its own series a few years later, some of which is also on YouTube. IMHO, it's nowhere near as funny as the original episode. It's interesting, tho, that one of the series' executive producers was Tim Burton.
I think it's also notable that when the Family Dog episode of Amazing Stories first aired, it was before The Simpsons was its own series. At the time, I thought it was weird to see a cartoon on in prime time. The Family Dog series didn't come around until after The Simpsons had started, so it was really riding on the coattails, I think.
Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)

Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)

nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.

Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.

Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.

Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.

nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
