  1. Heart is definitely one of THE acts that define the 1980's from me (I'm SO lucky to have been able to see them in concert), and Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers were probably the closest thing that America ever got to having its own band equivalent to The Rolling Stones; I can't think of a single song they EVER wrote or performed that could EVER be classified as 'Sub-Par'. At least Mike Campbell is still around and doing work of his own, so at least there's that much! Enough said!
  2. "The Salty Sponge" is now called "Soft Is The New Tough!"
  3. This ended up being the most well-written, and most well-executed "Spongebob Squarepants" episode segment that I have seen in quite a while! When the Krusty Krab has to close down for a week due to an Urchin infestation, Mr. Krabs decides to rent Spongebob's fry cook duties out...to the Salty Spittoon, of all places! Apparently, even Mr. Krabs is now aware that Spongebob's face can be molded to look different without it actually hurting Spongebob, as he made Spongebob look like a tough guy! Nice callbacks to "No Weenies Allowed", as the first thing Spongebob did when going into the Salty Spittoon, was to look around and take great care to NOT slip on an ice cube, as that's what made him have to leave there the LAST time! It's kind of funny how the owner of the Salty Spittoon, is a female angler fish SMALLER than Spongebob is! Initially, Spongebob is nervous (and not without good reason,) because all the OTHER previous "Employee Of The Month's" at the Salty Spittoon, LITERALLY died on the job! Nevertheless, Spongebob learns quickly that when a customer orders something at the Salty Spittoon, they mean that they want the LITERAL thing that they are asking for! Than, who of ALL characters should walk into the Krusty Krab, except MRS. Puff, calling herself "Puff Mama", and wearing a leather jacket that says "Big Fat Meanie" (nice callback to "Model Star Student"!) But Mrs. Puff gets NERVOUS when she hears Spongebob's signature laugh (due to all the past trauma she's suffered with Spongebob), so she FREAKS and runs out of the Salty Spittoon! Naturally, the customers and the owner come to the conclusion that Spongebob must ACTUALLY be a tough guy somehow in order to make Mrs. Puff freak, so they decide to test his toughness! First, they try to make Spongebob ride on a mechanical sea bull, only for Spongebob to somehow be ABLE to carry the mechanical sea bull for a ride instead; actually IMPRESSING them! Next, they try to make Spongebob punch some cinder blocks to prove his toughness, but Spongebob doesn't LOOK at where he's aiming, accidentally HITS somebody, and the fish ends up landing on the cinder blocks, which ends up BREAKING them! Spongebob's final test of toughness is using his chest hair to carve a wooden masterpiece! Although Spongebob doesn't HAVE chest hair, he remembers his ABRASIVE side, and seems to be able to control it now, as he able to carve a wooden masterpiece without any snide comments from his abrasive side! Having passed their tests, the Salty Spittoon's owner gives Spongebob what the French call "Carte Blanche" to make whatever changes he wants to the Salty Spittoon! And what does Spongebob do? He changes the Salty Spittoon in a way that NO customer there would've EVER anticipated before his arrival; he changes "The Salty Spittoon" into "The Softy Spittoon", and everyone there is now wearing grandma sweaters knitted with love, having tea, and acting all polite. Naturally, when sharks go into "The Softy Spittoon" they initially think they accidentally went into Weenie Hut Jr's., again referencing "No Weenie's Allowed". The Owner and the other customers actually DEFEND Spongebob's choices, and are actually HAPPY with them! They even start to sing a song about the Softy Spittoon to the tune of the "Spongebob Squarepants" opening theme! When Mr. Krabs comes to get Spongebob EARLY (because Mr. Krabs reasonably and NATURALLY thought Spongebob wouldn't be able to last the whole week. Initially, the Softy Spittoon owner doesn't WANT to give Spongebob up, only to get caught up in a fight that the sharks have started! Spongebob decides to take Mr. Krabs out of the Softy Spittoon, saying that it's too tough for Mr. Krabs! Thankfully, it seems that Spongebob will be remembered fondly at the Softy Spittoon, as he's the first LIVE employee the place has had, to make "Employee Of The Year"! I give this episode a FULL 10/10! Enough said, true believers!
  4. For me, it's actually a 4 way tie between Jellyfish Fields, Goo Lagoon, Sand Mountain, and Spongebob's Dream; but I chose Goo Lagoon because it didn't have any representation yet.
  5. That annoying moment when...angry role playing GIF by Hyper RPG you go to your local movie theater to see a movie, only to find out that the movie WON'T play because of a stupid computer glitch!

  6. This is a very amazing movie, that really deserves to be seen at least once; especially in 3D! Enough said!
  7. Interestingly enough, this episode segment proved to be the more interesting of the two that aired tonight. While the concept of a character living within Spongebob's walls for ALL this time is REALLY stretching continuity to a breaking point (although it does at least EXPLAIN how the character was able to do it as he DID have access to Spongebob's fridge from the back), Wally seems to have reality-bending powers (to a degree), as he's able to make the living space within the walls expand (or constrict) to his will, depending on how he's feeling! How he could NOT be aware that Spongebob was his annoying neighbor (or have Spongebob realize it when Wally describes Spongebob's own laugh to him) is also kind of stretching it a bit! Thankfully, Spongebob manages to escape, by breaking his bathroom mirror, and thusly, breaking "Wallhalla". (For anyone who's wondering, the name is a pun of Valhalla, the mythical Viking realm where brave vikings go in order to live in their afterlife.) Thankfully, Spongebob is able to make it up to Wally, by allowing Wally to live in the floors and walls of the Krusty Krab, and serving him Krabby Patties whenever he wants. Overall, I'd give this episode an 8.8 out of 10. Enough said, true believers!
  8. Well...this episode was...not bad, it really wasn't exactly great either. For instance, it already sounded "FISHY" that Mr. Krabs would offer Spongebob and Squidward a trip on his boat. The LAST time Mr. Krabs did that, he went crazy and used them both as CLAM bait! This time around, he actually cons them into BUILDING the boat! At the very least, it seems that Squidward's reflexes are FINALLY starting to get better, in terms of avoiding injury; even if he still comes off a little worse for the wear. They finally get the boat build, and Mr. Krabs calls it the S.S. Sea-Cret Formula! Only, Mr. Krabs reveals it to be yet another money making venture, as it's a sea-worthy Krusty Krab! Of course, Patrick IMMEDIATELY shows up to place an order! Also, we FINALLY get to see the Shrimp from "The Algae's Always Greener", Grubby Grouper, and the 'Loser' group from "Ripped Pants" after a LONG absence! We also finally get to see just how STRONG (and durable/sturdy) Bubble Bass is, as his mass manages to SINK the S.S. Sea-Cret Formula without suffering a scratch himself! At least he was nice enough to order and pay for a meal from them before they sank! At least the ship and its passengers got rescued by a sea monster, who for some reason, sounds a LOT like Rodney Dangerfield! I guess I'd give the episode a 7.7 out of 10, just because I felt like the episode segment could've offered more. Enough said, true believers!
  9. Gary Neuman's "Cars" playing in the background: "Here in my car, I feel safest of all. I can lock all my doors, it's the only way to live in cars."
  10. I'm not exactly sure WHO has the final call on which segments get the most amount of time in any given episode of "Spongebob Squarepants", but somebody REALLY dropped the ball on this one! "Welcome to Binary Bottom" lasted the longest, but it was by FAR the LEAST interesting and LEAST innovative in terms of what it did with its "Tidal Zone" premise! Honestly, the only REAL different things about "Binary Bottom" is that since Plankton is now a robot in "Binary Bottom", that means that Karen is now flesh and blood, meaning we FINALLY get to see what Karen looks like as a flesh and blood creature! And the other thing is that Sandy's robotic counterpart is a crazy, "Terminator"-esque head who wants to assimilate all the other robots in Binary Bottom! / "You're Going To Pay...Phone" utilized it's concept the best out of the "Spongebob Squarepants" segments. It shows what would happen if Mr. Krabs let the WORST of his 'Flanderized' behavior take control of him, as he irresponsibly takes a FREE Cursed Pay Phone (because the Curse was ALSO free) despite being warned by the Klopnodian sea star that it WAS cursed! Mr. Krabs gets hypnotized, first into giving away Free Patties, than his money, than the Krusty Krab! And he STILL keeps going back to the pay phone, because it gave him a QUARTER the first two times somebody called him! But when he doesn't get a quarter the third time, he opens up the pay phone to find out that a DEMON has been operating the phone! (Demon's are now CANNON to "Spongebob Squarepants"!) The Demon winds up placing Mr. Krabs into the pay phone! But if Mr. Krabs thought he was going to receive quarters with the pay phone, because he FOOLISHLY gave the Krusty Krab to Plankton, Plankton gets RID of the Pay Phone and puts it in the trash! Good thing for negative continuity on this one! / "A Skin Wrinkle In Time" is the first segment to continue DIRECTLY after the last segment, as there's not even a commercial break between the two! By all rights, this segment SHOULD'VE had the best premise, but all it did was show Grandpat taking Spongebob's place in an intro variant of "Spongebob Squarepants", Grandpat winding up in the Wild West, than Grandpat winding up back home, only to find that the rest of his family are now flying insects, only to reference one of "The Simpsons" "Treehouse of Terror" segments, that it's, "Close Enough" / I'd rank "Welcome To Binary Bottom only a 4.4 out of 10, "You're Going To Pay...Phone" a 9.8 out of 10, and "A Skin Wrinkle In Time" only a 7.1 out of 10. Enough said, true believers!
  11. While the "Freaky Friday" concept is always an intriguing one, and I like how the voices of Patrick and Karen didn't get switched when they talked out loud (which always makes the concept MUCH more believable), I felt that they could've picked BETTER candidates for the body swapping experience than Patrick and Karen. Spongebob and Squidward, Bubble Bass and Larry, Mr. Krabs and Plankton; I'm just saying there were OTHER options! Karen obviously got a lot MORE out of the experience than Patrick did, as she learned what it felt like to taste something, smell something, and even what pain felt like (which, because she was initially a computer and had no concept what a good or a bad feeling was; wanted to feel even MORE pain! Although, maybe it was because she felt like since it wasn't HER actual body; she had no stake in whatever ended up happening to it!) Ironically, despite being limited to being only a "Roly-shoe" (Patrick's words), Patrick is having too much fun in Karen's body, and only switches back when he finds out that he can't taste or eat anything! So Sandy's invention switches the two back, but Patrick's mind connected to the invention, when the other half of the invention touches the ground of "Kamp Koral", it somehow affects the minds of every other creature there, making them all have the same behavioral mind as Patrick does! At least Frenchy assures us that it will ONLY be just this one time, meaning that the effects will only be temporary. I guess I'd give this episode segment an 8.8. out of 10, just because I felt like this concept could've been done better. Enough said!
  12. Out of all the "Tidal Zone" episodes that aired last night, I felt that this episode segment utilized its premise the best. In case you're wondering, the linking thread that ties all the different "Tidal Zone" segments together, is that during this episode, Grandpat accidentally goes through Patrick's time travel door, and he spends the rest of the "Tidal Zone" segments trying to get back to his own time. In any case, after Patrick and the rest of his family (minus Grandpat) accidentally get shrunk; they initially try to make the best of the situation, only to be mistaken for vermin by Grandpat. So naturally, the rest of the Star family have to defend themselves from Grandpat's attacks against them. To save them, they are shrunk down further by a miniature version of Rube, who tries to offer them sanctuary in a futuristic city. But because the city is made of glass, and it doesn't allow singing (as Cecil's city causes the glass city to break), they take a hard pass on living there. It looks like the situation will be fixed when they find a Plant growth formula, only to find that the "FINE PRINT" says that it grows ONLY plants and shrinks everything else, leaving the Stars in a microscopic state! However, they claw their way out of the single-celled state, and get back to their house, only to find that they're being studied by Sandy, who's being studied by Frenchy, who's being studied by someone else! All in all, I have to give this very intriguing "Tidal Zone" segment a 9.9 out of 10! Enough said, true believers!
  13. I'm getting SERIOUS "Daria" vibes from this; which is a good thing as far as I'm concerned, because a spiritual sequel to "Daria" has been a LONG time coming! We could seriously use a new animated series like that to was away the gigantic STENCH that was "Teen Titans Go!" Enough said!
  14. I expect episode 288A to PROBABLY be renamed before it actually AIRS on television, even though I KNOW it's referencing a book title; censor's probably AREN'T going to let that pass before making SURE no one makes any dirty jokes about THAT!
  15. "Gone" is now called "I Am Spongebob". (Imaginary Bonus Points and an imaginary cookie if you know which movie I'm referencing!)
  16. It was June, because I got to travel to beautiful Sedona, Arizona, and see "The Beatles Love" while it was still playing at The Mirage Hotel/Casino when it was still open.
  17. With another year coming to a close, I thought it was only fitting to make a topic revolving around the year that was 2022. Even though a lot of things happened and I couldn't name them all (like Cartoon Network Studios stopping making their own original cartoon series), I thought I would still try my hand at making a serious topic and poll, because I want this to be a mature, rational discussion. Of course, I made a choice for Other, for all the other choices out there that I couldn't remember or forgot about. Of course, I hope that 2023 will be a much better year for the majority of us, certain people and things not withstanding.
  18. "Kirby: Planet Robobot" for the Nintendo 3DS, four brand new Santana T-Shirts, new rain pants, a new wallet, six flashlight pens, a $10 Starbucks gift card, a $10 Burger King gift card, a local movie theater ticket pass (I already used it), "How To Draw Star Wars Characters" book, "How To Draw Comic Books" book, "History Of The World Map By Map" book (I'm really fascinated by maps, "Photograph: The Very Best Of Ringo Starr" CD, a $50 Best Buy gift card, and various cookie and chocolate treats that I've already eaten. That's what I got for Christmas!
  19. I'm sorry it's been a while since my last update, I've been in a bit of a depression since the suicide of Jason David Frank. Even though that doesn't really affect my writing, since Tommy has been retired from "Power Rangers Multiverse Force" and I was never planning on using him again; it still hurt. But anyways, once the holidays are over; I'll get back to writing regularly, finishing up "Total Cartoon Legends" (and yes, I am planning on doing my own version of "Total Drama Pahkitew Island" and "The Ridonculous Race" eventually). And to show everyone that "Power Rangers Multiverse Force" is still on my mind, I'll show you the last bit of fiction I got written for it while Jason David Frank was alive, to give a preview of what's on the horizon! / (Cold Open) Words flash on the screen, and they say: "Coastal Falls, California. Present Day, April 1st, 2179; 4:34 P.M." From the perspective of the Thunder Rangers, the older Battle Fever Power Rangers, and everyone else, it's only been a few minutes since the main Power Rangers have entered into the Time Portal to go back in time to the 1980's. D.O.G., turns around, and he asks Omnus: "What I don't understand is, why couldn't WE have gone back in time to help Captain Retro and the others?" Omnus says: "In the first place, YOU and Krash'ir were already ALIVE back than! We couldn't run the risk of you accidentally running INTO yourselves and causing a temporal paradox!" Alpha 8 says: "And secondly, you KNOW that we need to have a Ranger presence here; just in case Queen Beryl or someone ELSE decides to start something!" Patsy says: "I highly doubt THAT'S going to happen! From MY experience, the 'MAIN characters always end up doing EVERYTHING'; and I've CERTAINLY never done enough things in MY life to qualify as a 'Main character'!" And at that moment, the alarm in the Command Center goes off! Queen Hedrian says: "Oh, why can't ANYONE ever have an 'OFF' day anymore?!" Coop groans, and he says: "PLEASE tell me that what I think IS happening; isn't happening!" Krash'ir (stuck in her Krystal form), turns on the Viewing Globe, and she says: "I'm afraid it isn't good! Some...blonde haired alien human has a gigantic squadron ATTACKING Queen Beryl's compound!" Omnus says: "That's Queen Galaxia and her cohorts! But by all rights, they shouldn't BE here at THIS time, at this place!" Coop says: "I TOLD you NOT to TELL me that!" Samson says: "Well, that's NOT going to change the fact that they are! What should we do?" (Beep! Beep! Ba-Beep! Beep! Beep!) Omnus says: "It seems like Captain Retro is contacting us! Alpha 8, patch him through immediately!" Alpha 8 says: "Yes, of course!" And Captain Retro's voice comes in, and he says: "Omnus, I'm in a bit of a situation here!" Alpha 8 says: "WE'RE in a situation in OUR time, to! Queen Beryl's PALACE is being ATTACKED!" The other Rangers hear screeching and honking in Captain Retro's reception, and Captain Retro yells: "WHAT?! By WHOM?!!!" Omnus sighs, and he says: "Queen Galaxia, summoned by Dr. Maniac himself; PURELY to secure Queen Metalia out of SPITE against his former employer!" Captain Retro says: "By all rights, Queen Galaxia SHOULDN'T be involved in this! Dr. Maniac must be planning something TRULY diabolic in relation to the Nazi realm!" Queen Hedrian says: "He's HARDLY the only interested party! I over-heard Kaolite and Villuy talking with Queen Galaxia on my PRIVATE Pirate radio! Let's you hear ANY frequency, ESPECIALLY yours! Anyways, they're SIPHONING the energy that Dr. Maniac is using from his Wormhole Creator, to create a rift to access the Nazi realm! They're GOING to get RID of all the leaders there, and infect ANY remaining Nazi's, in order to have them be POSSESSED by Youma's!" The other Rangers hear MORE screeching, and Captain Retro says: "Well, just have the Thunder Rangers deal with it until we're able to come back! Speaking of, where are the OTHER Power Rangers?! None of them have contacted me!" Alpha 8 says: "I HATE it that you're asking me that! You KNOW we get HORRIBLE Internet reception for anything that happens PRE 1981!" Captain Retro says: "Than you better hurry up and FIND someone! I have to PARK this limo!" Queen Hedrian says: "I didn't even KNOW you can drive!" Captain Retro says: "I'm NOT supposed to! I only HAVE my DRIVER'S permit, and I NEVER envisioned myself having to make my WAY, through such INSANE New York traffic! At least I've finally FOUND a parking lot! You would THINK New York City, even in 1979, would put their parking lots a LOT closer to their important BUILDINGS! At least I'll be able to park, and than I can--." But than, the other Rangers hear laser blasters over Captain Retro's reception! Captain Retro says: "Oh, GREAT! I SO didn't need THIS distraction right now! Well; guess I'll just have to do what I ALWAYS do while playing the arcade version of Cruisin' World released in 1997; drive like CRAZY!!!! I sure hope Diane picked some good DRIVING music!" And the feed between Captain Retro and the others gets cut off. D.O.G., says: "Well, Patsy; it looks like Captain Retro is counting on US, now. Looks like you're going to be a 'Main character' after all. Whatever THAT means!" Scrappy-Doo says: "That means, you'll be needing MY help to, won't you?!" Patsy says: "Well, seeing as how we're SHORT on options otherwise; we do!" Omnus says: "I'm afraid we can't just DIVE into this situation!" Queen Hedrian says: "Why ever not?!" Alpha 8 says: "For all we know, this might be what Dr. Maniac WANTS! To get rid of BOTH Queen Beryl and the Thunder Rangers in one fell swoop!" Omnus says: "And besides; I've only trained the Thunder Rangers for individual battles against monsters! They are not yet ready to fight a war for us! And Coop and Scrappy-Doo specifically, shouldn't ever HAVE to!" Coop says: "Well, we've got to do SOMETHING to protect Core Earth. Don't we? It's what BlackHawk would want us to do." Alpha 8 says: "I'm afraid that at this time, all we can do is WAIT for Queen Galaxia to FINISH attacking Queen Beryl and inevitably supplant her position! By that point, we'll have a better idea on what course of action we should take!" Queen Hedrian sighs and says: "I guess what Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers sang in 1981 is true; 'The waiting IS the hardest part'!" "Back To The 1980's Part III: Miami Ice!" / I hope you enjoyed that little preview, as much as I did writing it! Enough said, true believers!
  20. This is EXTREME sledding! Do NOT try this at home (or anywhere ELSE for THAT matter)!
  21. Thurl Ravenscroft: "You're a rotter, Mr. Grinch. You're the king of sinful sots! You're a crooked, jerked, jockey, and you drive a crooked horse; Mr. Grinch! Your soul, is an appalling dump heap, overflowing with the most disgraceful assortment of rubbish imaginable; mangled up, in tangled up knots!"
  22. Thurl Ravenscroft: "You nauseate me, Mr. Grinch. With a nauseous super nast! Your heart's a dead tomato splotched with moldy, purple spots; Mr. Grinch! You're a terrible, triple decker, toadstool, saurkraut sandwich, with arsenic sauce!"
  23. One has to wonder; where was he able to FIND an Eggo waffle big enough to go riding on?
  24. Thurl Ravenscroft: "You're a vile one, Mr. Grinch. You have termites in your smile! You have all the charming tenderness of a sea-sick crocodile, Mr. Grinch! Given the choice between the two of you, I'd pick the uh; sea-sick crocodile!"
