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.

nocturnal YL: Guys, guys! I can't believe what I found in Zelda 1! The game features an Elimination Mode that for some reason not many talked about! I wonder if it's fun? (Don't actually try it.)

nocturnal YL: Hey, I can edit shoutbox posts! This is already better than Twitter!

Nester the Lark: It seems like Cadence of Hyrule should be more popular than it is. Are people put off by the rhythm aspect? Or the randomly-generated maps?

nocturnal YL: ↑ Might warrant its own thread, but I think mixing rhythm and other genres usually resuls in gameplay too difficult for many. I can't handle it well either, judging from my scores in Dedede's Drum Dash.

nocturnal YL: ↑ For me personally, it simply hasn't been considered. It's a download-only game (until now) from a series I'm unfamiliar with and didn't feel like trying out.

Nester the Lark: Ironically, I did create a thread for Cadence of Hyrule, but then deleted it thinking there wouldn't be any discussion on it. Maybe I'll go ahead and make a new one.

Shrikeswind: Something to bear in mind about the shoutbox if you’re not already aware: It doesn’t show up on the mobile version of the forums. This shouldn’t be a major problem, but it can make it difficult to get into discussions for mobile visitors.
Jul 26, 2020 1:40:18 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Also the more obvious character limit issues, and the format not really being conducive to longer-term discussion. It’s useful but limited; threads definitely still have their place.

Shrikeswind: (Honestly, Proboards mobile is pretty bad in general, but...)

Nester the Lark: Not sure if this works on all devices, but you can force the desktop version of the forum by scrolling all the way to the bottom and clicking the "Desktop" link at the lower right.

Shrikeswind: I’m aware. I’m typing this from my phone. I’m just pointing out that, for people who aren’t aware or who may be casually checking in on their phone, the shoutbox won’t be visible on

Shrikeswind: Is there a Discord for NinDB, by the way? It’s very popular with them there young’ns these days, so it might help activity.
Jul 26, 2020 22:07:47 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: There is no NinDB Discord. There was a brief discussion of it a few years ago, but nothing ultimately came of it. I rarely use Discord, myself.
Jul 27, 2020 8:58:28 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Hm. Seems like it might be a good idea if activity picks up. Not to be a pessimist but I do have my doubts that'll happen though.

Shrikeswind: Okay not a Nintendo topic but I kinda need to talk about this because I just learned it and it's a thing so bleh.

Shrikeswind: You remember Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame, right? So apparently, 5 year old me was incapable of discerning male and female in non-humans, because *apparently* there's a female gargoyle, and the goat's a boy.
