One of The Curator's ultimate dream goals is getting the Vengaboys to visit him in rural Ellington, NY so he can pitch them on his idea for a Vengaboys movie, which he describes as "a science fiction thriller/action/adventure story about a levitating island."

Death is inevitable but we still need to take bold, decisive action with regards to climate change and environmental destruction instead of just talking about it so our descendants (birds) can have a better world
Are you excited for the Adventure Time movie??
wtf is an adventure time
Oh that's right I forgot, Adventure Time doesn't exist in this universe
CalArts was nuked along with the rest of Valencia in season 6, thereby depriving us of a generation of animators -_-

Happy 12th anniversary to rubbercat.net
As mentioned before, I upgraded my hosting plan with lots more space so I added everything here back to my "hosted" section, which I had previously taken down to free up space. Apparently MIDIs are no longer supported in Chrome so The Jonathan Taylor Thomas Chamber certainly loses a lot of "oomph," another victim of modern web gentrification. I don't think I want to know what percentage of my website no longer works.
Once again Blue Sky shows a shocking disregard for Peanuts canon... Linus & Lucy are supposed to be in different grades and Franklin & Peppermint Patty go to a different school... sorry, but I'll pass.
REVIEWS OF CHILDRENS SHOWS, PART XXVI
The new (well, new to me anyway) Tom & Jerry show looks like an Erin Esurance commercial. Tom can only "talk" in soundclips from the 1940s and it sounds like a crummy wav file of someone's answering machine. Just hire a new guy to scream, geez

Well, if it walks like a duck, and talks like a duck...
Once you become a vampire, you'll find that it comes with its own set of challenges. For instance, there's the whole issue of acquiring blood. Contrary to offensive outdated stereotypes, today's vampires don't kill people for blood; rather, they find an "emo" cutter and ask them for permission, or stock up on beef jerky.
Moms love RSS feeds, right?
EXT. DISNEY HEADQUARTERS - DAY
BRAD BIRD stands meekly in front of a desk, clutching a notebook in his hand. Behind the desk, a gruff CORPORATE EXECUTIVE puffs away on a cigar. His face is partially obscured by shadow.
Collectible pin sales are down 16% this quarter. I need you to make a movie with no less than three scenes centered around pins.
(jotting this down)
Yes sir, right away sir.
TWO YEARS LATER:
You know about OS-tans, right? They started as fanart of operating systems personified as anime babes. Over time the concept grew beyond operating systems and companies started making their own. Microsoft has a few "official" -tans marketed in Japan and other Asian countries, but I'm pretty sure "Internet Explorer-tan" is the first one that's also marketed to Western audiences. I've been following her Tumblr blog for a while now and I've been fascinated by how much thought has been put into the Microsoft Anime Girl Canon.
Anyway, now that Internet Explorer is being phased out in favor of Microsoft Edge, I naturally assumed the Internet Explorer-tan character would commit seppuku the day Windows 10 ships, and a new browser-tan would take her place. Instead, they're simply renaming her. You can't do that! That's like a total violation of OS-tan rules! It doesn't communicate the idea that Edge is an entirely new browser! It peeves me off real bad
We do not know yet how long you'll still be able to use Google Talk. Google has been making it clear they want to move forward with Hangouts, which we have no plans to support. For now, you'll still be able to sign in to Google Talk and talk to people using Hangouts, but we have no information about how long this will be possible.
Speaking of deprecated services, we believe MSN is now totally dead. We expect this to be permanent, we currently have no plans to support Skype.
Facebook Chat will also stop working on April 30. We have no plans to continue support.
Looks like the era of interoperable messaging services is over...
Here's some links to recent stuff I've written elsewhere, which I'm posting to alleviate my guilt for not updating in a while:
