My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is the female equivalent of Avatar: The Last Airbender. Both shows that play to a particular gender but cross over well.

I'm more afraid of Shamalan deciding to make a live action Friend Ship is Magic Movie than I am them remaking another 80's/90's cartoon. They've already done Voltron, Thundercats, My Little Pony, Pound Puppies, He-Man, Ninja turtles, ext.

Would anyone even notice at this point if Rainbow Bright: Quest for the Nyeh Cat got green lit?

Wait. People actually complain about Twilight because of the guys? I thought everyone hated Twilight because it sucks. This is so not fair for girls. Guys get Soul Calibre and I get....Twilight... I hang my head.

This video is now 20% cooler than Bob's other videos!

(sorry couldn't resist it)

It's more likely they'll attempt to make a male version of MLP in an attempt to cash in. Like the whole He-man and She-ra thing.

Could work, it's got a sufficiently rich fantasy setting, but since it would likely be a rushed cash grab, I doubt it could be pulled off.

I don't really see the internet sensation of MLP becoming anything more than it already is. The creators of the show have acknowledged its existense, but aside from a little Derpy Hooves here, a little Doctor Whooves there, I doubt it will alert the animation industry to this untouched "internet meme" audience. As far as they're concenred it's just an unexpected audience that they cater to without having to actually do anything.

RE: PSV

Only certain games require external storage. Sony has said that games can saved directly to the cards. Some games may require a larger storage device. Just like some 3ds games will require that goddawful extra analog stick addon that in no way is a cynical means of getting more cash out of those foolish enough to purchase a 3ds at launch knowing full well an update will be announced by next year.


re: Roan Paul


You need to make him write it 3 times. that's why he keeps coming back.

So knowing a black person who says Deus Ex' Latitia isn't racist isn't enough.

What is enough, bob? What's enough to prove that something _isn't_ racist?

Can that even be done if someone has already said it was?

Well, Herman Cain is a wonderful exception to the "Stockphoto of Guy in Pictureframe" look...

(...and in my not-so-humble-opinion, an excelent candidate, his views about Islam and the gold standard aside. Pobodie's Nerfect.)

You know Bob, I think you should do an episode about cannibalism.

KevinCV said...

Nice little smatterings, Bob. Pretty much agree on all of them. Including the Twilight one, as much as I find that series to be totally fucking bullshit, despite what what my sister-in-law says. However, maybe it's just me, but I find it a shame that you didn't use a pic of George Carlin's book "Brain Droppings" instead of that brain pic. To each their own, I guess.

hmmm... would "girls get CLAMP" suffice?

Ryan said...

Could somebody explain to me why MLP:FiM is a thing? I watched an episode...it seems just as dopey as the original was, and just as aimed at little kids. What am I missing?

@Ryan

It came from 4chan.

@Mads

Find a way to warp reality so that the guy who first pointed it out on Time.com (who is black, I might add) doesn't exit anymore.
