Happy birthday to the late Kevin Conroy. His portrayal of Batman was the 1st portrayal of the character I witnessed and remains the definitive portrayal of the Dark Knight in my eyes. May he rest in peace.
Today marks the 25th Year Anniversary of when Diddy Kong Racing was released in North America. This Nintendo 64 game remains a fascinating one to me for combining the racing genre and the platformer genre into a single experience.
Today marks the 30th Year Anniversary of when Sonic 2 was released in North America. Miles "Tails" Prower is a character who remains near and dear to me as the reason I was able to participate in a 2 player adventure for the first time.
Today marks the 10th Year Anniversary of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2012), if one were to count the "sneak peek" airing. This was the first entry from the TMNT Franchise that I saw all the way through from beginning to end.
Today marks the 30th Year Anniversary of Batman: The Animated Series and the DCAU, by extension. The DCAU was my introduction to the characters from DC Comics and I remain grateful for that particular introduction.
Today marks the 5th Year Anniversary of Sonic Mania. As someone who had their introduction to video games through the Sega Genesis Days of Sega's mascot, this game was a dream come true for me and I am hopeful it will receive a sequel some day in the future.
Today marks the 5th Year Anniversary of when DuckTales (2017) premiered. I found this reboot to be an entertaining watch and was impressed by how it incorporated aspects of other Disney cartoons (such as Darkwing Duck). Likewise, I appreciated getting to know Della Duck.
I'm one of those DBZ fans that never saw (Non-Canon) Broly's hatred towards Goku as "because Goku cried a lot as a baby". I saw (Non-Canon) Broly's hatred towards Goku as him associating Goku's crying with the near death trauma endured at the time.
One of the biggest debates I tend to see is where exactly does on draw the line between someone being very passionate about a work of fiction vs taking a work of fiction far too seriously for their own good.
Oh, wow... "Kill the Alligator and Run"... That was a really bad episode of The Simpsons. I still wouldn't call it the worst of the worst, but damn... That chain gang scene with Maggie (A BABY) and the other children, handcuffed together, the insanity just kept going and going...
Recently I read an article claiming that Disney's Dave the Barbarian "hadn't aged well" because it "couldn't compare to the new He-Man and She-Ra shows". Um, DtB was an absurdist comedy akin to the likes of Rocky & Bullwinkle, dum-dum. Way to out that you've never seen the show. Why exactly is this person expecting serious action fare from a show called Dave the Barbarian??
