I've taken to watching hockey--less out of genuine interest, more because I have some friends who are into it--and there is a player on the Columbus Blue Jackets named Jack Johnson. Tonight the Blue Jackets are playing the Rangers and, alas, there is no bitter rival on the opposing team named John Jackson!

FTFY

They're nine years late, anyways. *tsk tsk*

When I was in the movie theater last Sunday, before the movie had started and the lights had dimmed, the man in front of me received what I assume to be a text message. "Good news, everyone!," his phone chimed.

Earlier today I came across some movie called The Zookeeper's Wife on HBO, and thought immediately of this guy...



...along with Fry's assessment that the deadliest animal of all is the Zookeeper!

That hand looks really weird.  Did you pick that one on purpose?

I had not noticed the weird hand, but now that you've mentioned it it's gonna bug me real bad. It looks like the screen-grab itself was taken between frames or something--like, mid-finger-drumming--and that appearance of an extra thumb is just the result of bad timing on the screen-grabber's part.

A couple weeks ago, I came across a different article every day that bore a striking resemblance to something from Futurama. Unfortunately, I forgot most of them, but here is one from a pretty good satire site:

I've been a fan of a writer/director Carson Mell since 2011. In the summer of 2012, he started uploading a little animated webseries to his YouTube channel called Tarantula, all written & voiced by Mell. It had a nice little cult following, fast-forward to 2017 and it's now a fully-fledged TV show on TBS, produced by Danny McBride and featuring a bunch of voice actors & improved animation (not that the original animation was bad at all, it had Mell's unique-style).

Summer 2012 was also when season 7 of Futurama began to air, so that & Tarantula are closely linked in my mind. But anyway, the Tarantula TV show features a lot of voice work from Phil LaMarr & David Herman, animation by Rough Draft Studios (Scott Vanzo's name appears in the opening credits of every episode) & a dozen directors from Futurama (Claudia Katz, Crystal Chesney-Thompson, Edmund Fong, Dwayne Carey-Hill & probably a few others that I can't think of off the top of my head).

It's just kind of cool & sentimental to me that these two separate entities that influenced me at lot (at the same time) have somehow come together all these years later (2012 wasn't that long ago, but you get me).

Also, definitely check-out Tarantula & Carson Mell's YouTube channel! Perhaps the original, short-length episodes of the show will inspire you to give the full thing a watch. smile

A friend of mine from Texas is currently aboard a scientific research vessel which recently left New Zealand on its way to Antarctica. He just posted this photo and it reminded me of The Birdbot of Ice-Catraz smile

If only they'd built it with 6001 hulls! When will they learn?

*edit*

This reminded me of something we'd see in Futurama. big grin

On my travels today I passed something called "The Land Bank Center," whose clunky title reminded me of none other than that most majestic of passenger vessels: The Land Titanic!

(I think "The Mutants Are Revolting" is a pretty dumb episode, but damn do I get a kick out of the phrase "land-drowned.")

"The Land Bank Center" does have a character to it that would fit right into that episode smile

Yes, that's a pretty neat dress smile

And I'm wracking my brain, as I clearly recall something roughly similar to it that a woman built to wear to a festival, I think? But I can't recall where/when I saw it.

The VP of HR just sent out an all-company bulletin which begins:

"Hi everyone,
Good news!!"

And just like in Futurama, the news may not be quite as promising as it appears at first glance tongue

Last night I came across the following phrase in a book I'm reading--"energy drinks spiked with alcohol, the taste of purple"--and was reminded, of course, of "The Why of Fry" and the Nibblonian's preferred method of blanking people's memories:



As I am the sort of dork who writes in the margins of her books, I then felt obliged to underline the aforementioned passage and leave a note that said, "Ah, the taste of memory loss!" Amused me, at least.

What better place to make notes about a book than in the book itself? smile

Someone posted this over on Twitter; I imagine it's what the professor would be like if he had to use a mobile phone, I couldn't help but read the last message in his voice:

That's cute smile



The other day I was chatting with Fishy Jeff and a few others in the PEEL Hangout, when he mentioned his frustration trying to help an "elderly relative" navigate a website earlier in the day. Given that I typically manage to browse websites without extreme difficulty and that I'm one of the oldest ever to join PEEL, I naturally asked him "Just how old do you mean by 'elderly'?" And he wouldn't tell me smile

There are times when I really wish that I could pull off the Professor's voice smile
