Today I had the opportunity to use a Futurama quote. And it was grand. My friend said "Pfft, drugs are for losers" and I said "Yeah, and hypnosis is for losers with big weird eyebrows!" Everyone stared at me for a second, then we all laughed.

Yesterday, whilst listening to the radio, I heard a Beastie Boys song; it was immediately followed by a Beck song. (The radio station I listen to is weird.) Independently, neither of these things would have reminded me of Futurama--but, taken together, I couldn't help but be reminded of "Hell is Other Robots" and "Bendin' in the Wind."

Last night my husband and I were relaxing and chit chatting before bed and got pretty deep into conversation. All of a sudden, my husband looked up at the clock and goes "9:56- crap it's late." Then, without a moment's hesitation he says "56?! 56!?" and started mock stabbing me. He was being so loud with the "ha has" I'm amazed our daughter didn't wake up.

Wait--there's more! Yesterday husband was talking in a Russian accent (well, trying to--that's his German, Thai, and Mexican accent, too) while he was getting ready for bed. He pulled at the seat of his boxer shorts and proclaimed, "I have a vedgie!"

"Eeeee!" I said. "Now say 'nuclear wessel!'"

"Nuh-oh!"

Has anyone else seen the new TV ad for some school/college where all the masses of people are gliding along a city street, sidewalk to sidewalk between high-rise buildings.   

Reminds me of the 11:59 scene on the robot homeworld / Chapek 9 in Fear of a Bot Planet where the robots stream by for exactly one minute.

It didn't remind me of Futurama, but now it kinda does.

I overheard someone say "Shut up baby, I know it" today, and was quite disappointed after eavesdropping a few moments more and realizing this person was not, in fact, discussing Futurama.

That song by Hedley has a line like this "I don't care if you steal all my air we can breathe together as one" reminds me of Love and Rocket for 2 reasons.

1. When Leela's oxygen tank is shutting down and Fry gives her his
2. When the Ship wants Bender to merge programming.

I saw a squirrel running across a power line just now as I was driving to school--perhaps the first time I've ever witnessed such a spectacle in real life--and was reminded of Nixon's desire for such a creature to tumble to its death in "Decision 3012."

I just put the TV guide up on screen to see 'Birdman of Alcatraz' and 'That's Entertainment II' both on right now. Naturally I thought of the similar Futurama episode titles. But it was weird to see two on at once. Also a few weeks back there was a movie on that reminded me of Amazon Women in the Mood, but when I looked it up, it wasn't the movie the episode was based around. wtf?

Just saw the B-, erm...C-...well, it was basically a Z-movie "Nazis at the centre of the Earth" wink When the Führer's remains made a personal appearance, I was for some strange reason reminded of "A head in the polls" wink



(The movie was some kind of "Poor Man's Iron Sky". It had it's length, was terribly bad: But the showdown against Mecha Hitler on board of a flying huge Vril was really good-ole-fashioned trash fun wink )

Just watching "Bong of the Dead" (Two dopeheads survive the Zombie Apocalypse, to find out Zombie remains are the perfect Dung for the perfect weed...yep, probably even Cheech and Chong would have called that movie stupid wink )

Anyway: They had to have to typical "Tough as Nails Power Woman", who bore a certain similarity to Leela (Tank Top, Hairstyle). When asked about her name, she said it was "Lea". Okay, this could have been a coincidence. But her last name was "Kroaker"...and when I heared that one, I wondered wether that name was a deliberate hint at a certain animated TV show wink

Read volume 2 of the Comic "Quästor" today. (a Fantasy comic playing in the Greek mythology).
In one scene, two investigators were doing research: One by questioning people, another one by getting drunk in a brothel (inhabited by non-human, mythological women).

One of them did remind of a certain someone wink

Strange, I saw someone with that weird futurama shirt with Benders antenna acting like an old fashioned radio tower, and it was the first time I'd seen any futurama clothes. It's my least favourite shirt they do, but still.

I work in a caravan (travel trailer) dealership, and in order to prevent the vans from being towed away by thieves over the holiday break, we bought some security devices that fit into the towing hitch and make it impossible to hook them up to a tow ball.



They look like Bender. And my boss was the first one to point that out as I'd declined to comment.

So people on the other side of the pond just let their glorious nippies breathe free when sunbathing and etc, right? And aren't there co-ed locker rooms over there?

I personally like boobies (from an aesthetic standpoint--I like dudes and their various accoutrements, damnit!). I could never understand how seeing everything about the breast but the nipple is acceptable to American audiences.

Americans are schizoid.  And beyond hypocritical.

Which reminds me, I was on a social media site earlier today and saw a (local) link with a funny ref from When Aliens Attack that made me laugh and I went to post the text of it right here in this thread, but changed my mind.  It's not nearly as bad as some language I've seen on Peel, but I am actually shy about some things.  So, what the hell, here's the text of the link, not the link itself.  Adult Peelers only, please...

Don't lump us all together. The "Religious" "Right" (which is actually neither) is reponsible for censoring a lot of what is acceptable in Europe.

I, for one, would rather watch a movie where a woman has an orgasm than one where a man dies in an explosion.

Why not just compromise and have it be an explosive orgasm?

I personally like boobies (from an aesthetic standpoint

Really? I know they're the most erotic part of a woman and all, but I've always found boobies--even nice ones, of which I am decidedly not in possession--to be strange-looking. I guess it's more the nipples that freak me out, though; I suppose a lady's chest, in silhouette, has a certain somethin' to it.

But anyway, topic: The other night, my friend and I were drunkenly discussing how annoying it is when the inside of your ear is itchy and you can't quite scratch it with even your middle finger. I started to explain to her how whenever I go to scratch my ear I am reminded of Fry poking at his own in "Parasites Lost"--but I gave up the explanation halfway through, both because I was all booze-addled and because my friend does not watch Futurama and would have had no appreciation for that reference.

Seriously (and soberly), though, I am always reminded of that image of the PE ship juuust escaping Fry's index finger and (*shudder*) puncturing his eardrum or whatever every time my own ear is itchy. I don't know why that moment resonates so strongly with me, but there you have it.

Off topic: why are the most ugly parts of a human, both male and female, the parts used to make babies? Stupid evolution.

On topic: At the restaurant I was at yesterday somebody mentioned something about ice cream soup, and I exclaimed I knew how to make that. Then they asked how and the joke was ruined.

My parents are currently watching the episode of The Twilight Zone on which the episode of The Scary Door from "A Head in the Polls" (about the guy who likes books, but cannot read them because his glasses and eyeballs and other body parts are no longer functional) is based. I'm kind of having a fan-girlish freak-out about this fact, I find it so exciting!

1 - Oh come on, those parts are perfectly fine. We don't cover them because they're bad or gross, we do so because they're not (generally) considered to be for public use, and they can use the protection.

2 - Ice cream soup is a beautiful mystery. If you go telling everyone how they can make it at home, it's just not the same.

Saw some of this in the grocery store tonight and it reminded me of Futurama.  For my personal palate I'd only rate it a 6/10 but it's not bad by any means.

The song "Electric Feel" by MGMT makes me think of Leela and her electricity fetish.  flirt
That and Fry doesn't seem to know how to swim...

Also this music video reminded me of Fry's picture in luck of the Fryish.
