  • Some days, you just can't get rid of a bomb.
    I'd be open for doing this on either Wednesday or Sunday. Of course, my availability may change as I go back to school in the fall.

    I would recommend using the 6irc service for your streams. It allows you to use almost any media you can think of, including Livestream embeds.
  • SECRRT OF KELLS! WATCH IT AND GET TWELVE ROZPOINTS!
  • Whores! we want "poems that kill."
    Assassin poems, Poems that shoot
    guns. Poems that wrestle cops into alleys
    and take their weapons leaving them dead
    Cobbler or Kells

    And again, I tend to be AWOL during the Jewish Sabbath. 
  • “His thoughts were red thoughts, and his teeth were white.”
    Cat Soup, because I will not rest until everyone on this site has experienced it.

    To piggy back on top of this, I have a room setup for this kind of thing on both synchtbe.6irc and cytu.be (synchtube is a fork of cytu.be, both made from the same code) at http://synchtube.6irc.net/r/HeapersHangoutAltJukebox and http://cytu.be/r/heapershangoutaltjukebox respectively, so if you use either of those streaming services, we have a dedicated room set up to use.
  • Also, backing Cat Soup.

    I will not want h that for less than 48 Rozpoints, and everyone starts with 36.

    Any of the following will get you 12 rozpoints:

    The King's Shadow by Elizabeth Alder

    The Westing Game by Ellen Raskina

    The Man From Snowy River

    The Adventures of Tintin

    The thief And The Cobbler, any version

    The Secret Of Kells

    Water ship Down

    Arthur's Almost Live Not Real Music Festival

    Merriam Webster's new Collegiate Dictionary, Ninth Edition

    The Pogo Special Birthday Special.
  • “His thoughts were red thoughts, and his teeth were white.”
    Already read The Westing Game, and reasonably familiar with Tintin from the series that aired on HBO when I was a child.

    Cat Soup has a very special place in my heart, especially the ending.
  • Whate'er is born of mortal birth/Must be consumèd with the earth,
    To rise from generation free:/Then what have I to do with thee?
    This is going to happen! We will be starting out with the movie that kind of killed Disney's animation department The Black Cauldron!

    Tentative date is Thursday 9:00 EST
  • YESH!

    DOOOOOO IT!
  • Some days, you just can't get rid of a bomb.
    I'm thinking of going on a Off-Beat Disney Movie Marathon leading up to Thursday.

    I have Fantasia, Alice in Wonderland, and The Emperor's New Groove in mind.

    Are there any other recommendations that you guys have for me?

    The Black Hole, which everyone just kinda forgets exists.

    And Kidnapped and Napoleon And Samantha.

    And the 1952 live action Robin Hood.
  • Whate'er is born of mortal birth/Must be consumèd with the earth,

    Bump.

    Reminder that this is still happening tomorrow at 9:00 EST
  • Whate'er is born of mortal birth/Must be consumèd with the earth,
    To rise from generation free:/Then what have I to do with thee?
    Still happening. Room is here http://synchtu.be/r/Odradek_Stream
  • Whate'er is born of mortal birth/Must be consumèd with the earth,
    To rise from generation free:/Then what have I to do with thee?
    Stream starts in a little under two hours
  • Whate'er is born of mortal birth/Must be consumèd with the earth,
    To rise from generation free:/Then what have I to do with thee?
    Stream is in one hour.

    Now would be a good time to grab synchtube accounts for the chat.
  • Whate'er is born of mortal birth/Must be consumèd with the earth,
    To rise from generation free:/Then what have I to do with thee?
    Ten minutes to showtime
  • Whate'er is born of mortal birth/Must be consumèd with the earth,
    To rise from generation free:/Then what have I to do with thee?
    Okay thanks guys! That was fun even if the movie itself didn't hold up that well.
  • The Nation's Number One Laugh Bird
    continuing my credits thing: Andreas Deja animated Gurgi, Glen Keane designed him and Elionwy

    not seeing who animated the witches
  • frickin' nerds 
    So, the Black Cauldron

    was merely "okay", neither a great in Disney's catalog nor utterly repulsive

    though it had some inspired bits, on the whole, it was a bit too bland for its own good (and, as basically everyone pointed out, felt too Star Wars-y without the same level of impact)
  • Whate'er is born of mortal birth/Must be consumèd with the earth,

    I think the biggest problem was the tonal and narrative inconsistency. 

    It was clearly be pulled in several directions, and it doesn't go far enough in any of them.

    Yeah. As a result, you're kinda left not really caring about any of the characters.

    There was a princess, though, so it wasn't all bad.
  • The Nation's Number One Laugh Bird
    And a cute piggy!
  • Some days, you just can't get rid of a bomb.
    The designs of the villain and the "Cauldron Born" felt like they were cool designs in search of a good story.
  • “His thoughts were red thoughts, and his teeth were white.”
    I missed the screening, unfortunately, but it's worth noting that the story is basically the Cliff Notes version of a series of books that was explicitly written to riff on the clichés and archetypal narrative themes in Arthurian and traditional Welsh fantasy stories.

    Also the Horned King is the real villain's lieutenant in the books; apparently they only vaguely allude to Arawn in the film with the implication of what the cauldron contains.

    There's an exposition dump at the beginning about how the Cauldron was created by the gods sealing a super-evil king inside a cauldron but it doesn't get brought up again.

    Also they never explain what the Horned King's deal is.
  • Some days, you just can't get rid of a bomb.
    The main problem with the film is that, for the most part, they played the story entirely straight.

    With that in mind, I think you can imagine what the film feels like.
  • Whate'er is born of mortal birth/Must be consumèd with the earth,

    There were also way too many comic relief characters.

    I mean Fflewddur Fflam and the witches were fun, but Gurgi and the fairies were odious, and Creeper was just kinda there.

    Next stream is at the same time. This time we'll be watching a youtube queue of old cartoons(Felix the Cat, Popeye, characters you haven't heard of) on synchtube. If anyone has any suggestions, get them in.
  • Whate'er is born of mortal birth/Must be consumèd with the earth,
    To rise from generation free:/Then what have I to do with thee?
    Actually, let's move the stream to 8:00  PM EST tomorrow.

    I forgot I have a busy day Thursday
  • Whate'er is born of mortal birth/Must be consumèd with the earth,
    To rise from generation free:/Then what have I to do with thee?
    Oh shit, I guess it really is Thursday.

    I totally forgot.
  • “His thoughts were red thoughts, and his teeth were white.”
    Friday?
  • Whate'er is born of mortal birth/Must be consumèd with the earth,

    Friday?

    We'll see how fast I set up.
  • Whate'er is born of mortal birth/Must be consumèd with the earth,
    To rise from generation free:/Then what have I to do with thee?
    Okay tonight sounds good. I will get a queue up.
  • Whate'er is born of mortal birth/Must be consumèd with the earth,
    To rise from generation free:/Then what have I to do with thee?
    8:00 PM EST unless anyone objects.
  • “His thoughts were red thoughts, and his teeth were white.”
    But that gives me so little time to ready myself!

    Whatcha watchin' anyways?

    Various old pre WWII cartoons. The playlist will play for about an hour.
  • “His thoughts were red thoughts, and his teeth were white.”
    Ooooh, OK!

    ...have you watched Cat Soup? (Asked the good missionary.)

    It's on our suggestions, so I was planning on watching it then.
  • “His thoughts were red thoughts, and his teeth were white.”
    Yay! ^w^
  • Whate'er is born of mortal birth/Must be consumèd with the earth,
    To rise from generation free:/Then what have I to do with thee?
    Fifteen minutes to showtime.
  • Whate'er is born of mortal birth/Must be consumèd with the earth,
    To rise from generation free:/Then what have I to do with thee?
    Five minutes.

    Everybody who's anybody start checking into the chat.
  • “His thoughts were red thoughts, and his teeth were white.”
    Thank you, Based Klinotaxis, for gracing us with "Koko's Earth Control".
  • Some days, you just can't get rid of a bomb.
    "Koko's Earth Control" easily won the night, although some of the other cartoons were pretty good in their own right.

    I think the strength of old Fleischer cartoons was that they knew nothing mattered in the anarchic world of cartoon shorts, so they weren't afraid to go dark.
  • “His thoughts were red thoughts, and his teeth were white.”
    Also, despite it being one of the weakest cartoons of the night, "Frozen Frolics" still gave me the seal playing the snowshoe. I am totally using that seal as an avatar at some point. Just sayin'.
  • “His thoughts were red thoughts, and his teeth were white.”
    You know, this is probably too fucked up and weird even for this venue, but the experimental animated film Midori: Shoujo Tsubaki is on YouTube. It's only about fifty minutes long and was literally the sole work of one director mostly known in later years as a storyboard artist and key animator. It's based on one of Suehiro Maruo's surrealist horror manga and apparently it's hella messed up.

    I would certainly be up for it.

    v Yeah, understandable. I guess you could say I'm the same way. Unfortunately it might not go over so well...
  • “His thoughts were red thoughts, and his teeth were white.”
    I would be less hesitant if descriptions of it didn't make me think "this is Trigger Warning Central."

    I am not easily phased by horrible things, but other people can be, so I'm cautious.
  • kill living beings
    i'm weirded out that something i suggested half-jokingly was popular

    i mean it's not a bad cartoon or anything but still

    it's neat how "experimental" it was in 1928 though, in a "there are no conventions yet" way rather than a "fuck conventions" way
