I've little idea if this would be more "legal" than other options, but I use a EyeTV genlock for my shows which I then encode as avi files — that much is covered under fair use just as using a VCR or DVR would be — and I could send these to you as attachments. I do not have nor will I have a website...

The hand-to-hand training mech in the '84 movie showed more spunk than many G1 characters: it was sneaky, ruthless and a cowardly weasel all at once.

Maybe Starscream's disembodied spark was slumming as it wandered around time and space before managing to trick Unicron?

I'm surprised no one's taken Deadman yet.

Bobby and Mae had always wanted to travel but they'd never been able to. Then one fine afternoon after Bobby won several ten thousands of dollars from a lotto and so they decided that, just this once, they'd do the irresponsible thing for a change and travel through Europe. So they left the family c...

Pity there wasn't (to my knowledge) a successful band called "Colorblind" in the '80s because it would have worked for either Rumble or Frenzy depending on who was coloring the animation cells that day.

My girls are always interested in my shoes or flip flops after I've been outside or just worn them for a long time (which provides fuel to the belief that cats, no matter how sweet and cuddly, are crazy). Aside: thankfully they've stopped relieving themselves in my flip flops. As for leather, I'm gu...

Dr Strange: a blend of Old Spice, talcum powder and Listerine Dr Fate (the original before the Nabu retcon of the early 80s): shaving cream and deodorant ... if anything (I've been told the 40s were a low point for cologne sells in the US). Dr Fate after the Nabu retcon: the helmet probably smelled ...

I was never convinced it was really a girl to start with. Anyone that aggressive about asserting their girl-ness is either over-compensating or hiding something. I hear you and I agree: must be some weird mental stuff at work ... at least at some level. There's a slightly humorous story about a for...

Only cuz the roof collapsed you dolt... You think I didn't know that? Just the same: the jokes have probably been flying up in Green Bay.

I too like Top Gear. Love it, actually. It's like classic Car and Driver, but with more bad jokes about a faceless driver and fewer about Yates' past exploits. However, recently History Channel has been airing an Americanized version (more "clone" as either L&O UK or Steve Carell's The Office are "v...
