SIMPSONS / FAMILY GUY Crossover Review : Black Nerd

Andre had it right. The episode had good parts, but you can feel that it was a Family Guy episode.

so much changed

I like how this opening reflects more of the 30s. Kind of feels like the black and white films that Disney did during that time. So major props to the people for making this feel accurate.



我的名字是寇拉I’m the Avatar.


So, every ATLA/LOK book has at least one flashback episode:

Book 1: Water - “The Storm”

Book 2: Earth - “Zuko Alone”

Book 3: Fire - “The Avatar and the Firelord”

Book 1: Air - “Out of the Past/Skeletons in the Closet”

Book 2: Spirits - “Beginnings 1 & 2”

Book 3: Change - “Old Wounds”

When making wish lists for flashbacks you’d like to see, I think it’s important to remember that flashbacks in this show are always, always, always done to serve either the main plot or the character arc. They are never ends in themselves. “Zuko Alone” is about contextualizing Zuko’s choices and the journey he finds himself on. And the reason we don’t find out what happens to his mom is because Zuko doesn’t know. Because one of the most important aspects of Zuko’s arc is that when he was a little kid, something terrible happened to his mom and no one would explain it to him. And so, he was placed in the horrible position of having to identify with the values of his father in order to survive, though he always retained some part of the good person his mother knew him to be. 

That’s one of the things that makes the confrontation between Zuko and Ozai in “The Day of Black Sun” so amazing - because it shows us just how much that memory of his mother, that uncertainty about her fate has held him hostage all of these years. That he is able to break free from his father without ever knowing the truth is as important as him simply breaking free in the first place. He rejects the possibility of closure. He assume that Aang will kill his father before he finds out what happened. 

Likewise, “The Avatar and the Firelord” doesn’t simply tell us the story of Roku and Sozin for the sake of telling us that story but because it points toward the choices Aang and Zuko will have to make down the line. The same goes for “Beginnings,” which sets up the choices Korra has to make in the Book 2 finale.

So, if we see any further flashbacks of the Gaang or even of another character’s past, it is never ever ever going to be simply for the sake of telling that particular story. It will always have to be somehow woven into the arc of the narrative or the character. This show dabbles in fanservice sometimes but usually never for its own sake. 

Only the Avatar can master all four elements and bring balance to the world.


"Why did you make me leader?"

"Because… you asked"


It’s a revolution I suppose. (x)

My reaction to the Book 4 trailer


what have I done


what have I done

Hello! I've been reading what has been happening in the fandom tonight, and I just want to say that, even though I don't ship Korrasami, I think that everyone is entitled to ship whatever they want. :) I'm a hardcore Borra/Masami shipper, but I don't care if others ship Makorra, Korrasami, or whatever. It's their favorite ship, and they have every right to stick with it. :)



Anon, slow claps for being an intelligent and beautiful human being. The fandoms are just ridiculous right now. We have trolls in both the Makorra and the Korrasami fandom acting up and tagging hate in the tags and one blog even got taken over by one of the trolls. It’s honestly pathetic and petty.

Trust me, I would be staying out of this if people weren’t being directly attacked by anons with hate mail and death threats.

I don’t give a flying fuck who you ship, but it is NEVER acceptable or tolerable to give death threats to people who think differently than you!

You think this would be common sense, but apparently it isn’t. If Bryke saw what was happening they’d be ashamed that adults (yes we are mostly adults) can’t view a show without acting like middle school children (sorry if you’re a middle schooler and I just insulted you…).

Makorra, Korrasami, Borra, Masami, Bopal, Boleska, Tahnorra and whatever else people ship. Just let everyone sail on their own ship.

I’m not mad at you anon. Sorry if this is somewhat harsh sounding, but honestly this is just annoying and tedious at this point.

You have the right mentality :)

I myself have a tendency of staying out of shipping wars, especially in the Avatar fandoms. But when it gets to the point of utter ridiculousness, I just shake my head and say: ‘You’re fighting over characters that don’t even exist!’ So huge props to these people who know how to ship the right way. You’re a credit to the human race!


"There are still glimmers of hope here and there..You know , when they have like a strong female protagonist and it’s really interesting. I don’t know if you guys heard about The Legend of Korra..IT’S LIKE A GREAT SHOW


I posted a couple of new comic pages on the web site this weekend.  

Lackadaisy Crossroads
Lackadaisy Voodooienne

It’s not much, and I’m sorry about that.  To those who’ve been asking if the comic is dead - no, surely not.  Life has been mostly work and sleep for the past while, though, with depressingly little space for comics.


600 Million Years and Counting…

I was pretty bored so I decided to make some GIFs of the last 600 million years of our planet’s plate tectonics.

The first GIF is a global mollewide projection. The second one is of the Colorado Plateau and the North American Southwest. The next GIF is of the entire formation of the North American Continent. The fourth GIF is of geologic and tectonic evolution of Europe. And finally the last one is the same as the first except in rectangular format.

I obtained the images from Global Paleogeography and them compiled them one by one into Photoshop with the end result being the above GIFs.
