Actually I find that futurama is a very dramatized version of our current world so our world reminds me of Futurama... Oh and Fry rules all, except Bender who rules over Fry smile

I'm not sure that dramatised is the right word, there. Satirised maybe?

"What is Futurama?" was one of the answers questions on tonight's episode of Jeopardy. The clue involved Bender and his quote from AOI I about extortion and how the 'X' makes it sound cool.

Needless to say, that kind of, you know, reminded me of Futurama.

Me and Mattchoo8008 we're heading to his house yesterday, and he said: "Andrew look!" I turned around to see a sign that read: Bender's Car Wash. God, I love coincidences.

That's awesome. It would been even awesomer if it said "bot wash" instead.

But admittedly, that wouldn't make any logical sense.

I saw a guy in the phone book named Phillip Wong. Made me smile. smile
My dance teacher was named Phillip Wong- I doubt either Amy or Fry is a good dancer.

And yesterday my teacher was talking about how we take technology for granted and how laundry used to be done by hand, so of course I said "Back in my day we didnt need a mechanical washing unit, we just used a washing machine!"

I am currently enrolled in a speech class, and one of our regular assignments involves analyzing a famous speech based on its content and rhetorical mastery and modern-day relevance and whatnot. This time around, I have decided to write on Nixon's "Checkers" speech, for the sole reason that its title reminds me of "A Head in the Polls" and how that dog could never just SHUT UP, DAMN IT. (I'm even mentioning Futurama and its use of Nixon in my paper. You know, 'cause I'm a serious academic.)

I have two!

1. There's a national park near where I live called Morton National Park which always reminds me of the writer of the same name.

2. Whenever I see the Frenzal Rhomb album "Shut Your Mouth" in my iTunes library, I always read it in the Professor's voice from Bender's Game:

Elevator Steward: Maintenance shaft 7 serving...

Farnsworth: Shut your mouth!

Elevator Steward: I'm just talking about the shaft!

Now whenever I see a product that claims to be "flavor blasted" it reminds me of Futurama, specifically Amy asking "Could it have been flavor blasted?" An example would be my Xplosive Pizza Goldfish.

Heh, I've just come across the word "morbo" while translating text for Latin.

And how appropriate that word is, for in the context Cicero is declaring that Catiline is his Vermin of the Week, and saying that Rome is DOOOOMED if they don't do something about it now!

I watched The Adventures of Tintin over the weekend. Tintin's hair, though not as defined, definitely reminds me of Fry.

A math word problem I saw today involved a person named Marc. Yes, PEEL did come to mind.

I got the Gears of War 3 Xbox for my Dad's new house, and Marcus Phoenix is voiced by Dimaggio. Also, some background character sounded a bit like Bender smile

DiMaggio does a lot of work in video games, I swear he does some of the thugs in Arkham City.

He also does the voice of Louie McGraff, a playable character in the BioShock 2 multiplayer. And a billion other game characters. But I know him most for that.

Ah, yes. I recognised the voice the moment I heard it. The voice acting in that game is just superb.

Ever hear about the ELO concept album, "Time"? It's about a guy from the 1980's that gets thrown 100 years into future by aleins or something. Most of the pain the hypothetical hero feels is from missing his 20th century lover but it goes over some other stuff, too.


*One of the first things the hero does is get a ticket to the moon.
*The hero tries to date a robot that looks like and has the memories of his former lover. She's also a telephone. (Think "Rebirth" or that one episode with Lucy Lui; the telephone thing is like a Bender-Can-Do-Anything type of gag.)
*  "Ah, the ground at my feet, maybe it's just the old street /
 But everything that I know lies underneath." (Old New York?)
* The Hero ends up having to send himself int othe future to stop evil brains.

...I made up that last bullet point. But yeah. It makes me think of Futurama.

A local movie theater is going to show "More Than Frybread" in a few weeks. It made me wonder whether MG, DXC, etc., are going to have an episode called "More Than Fry-Bred", about the Fry family's descendants ...

Just like Hermes mentioning to Fry "the Federation from your Star Trek program" as an analogy for the DOOP, today the professor in my business ethics class used Star Trek's United Federation of Planets as an example of an entity that is supposed to oversee the ethics of international affairs. Unlike in Futurama, though, he used that example first, and then the UN.

I read that in Bender's voice. I'll just assume that was their intent.

The alternate universe on the show Fringe totally reminds me of "The Farnsworth Parabox", especially the bit about the people in the other universe being evil versions of the main characters. The other Olivia even has red hair, like Leela in the other universe.

Also, both Fringe and Futurama have mad scientists who are regularly seen doing hilariously inappropriate things.

Someone rented a carpet cleaning machine at work the other day, a transaction for which one must provide a photo ID. While I ordinarily hate doing the paperwork for these rentals, I had a moment of dorky giddiness when the guy handed me his driver's license and I saw that his home address was in Nutley, New Jersey. I wonder if he's ever taken the 10:15 bus...
