@sammo21: I bet they're just trying to quarantine all the mentions of Naked Cartoon Pussy on the site by allowing them here.

Drew alluded to this on the Bombcast.

Snapchat is for when you have an idea/moment that you want to share but don't think it's good/funny/clever enough to share on "real" social media.

I think it makes sense for Dr. Tracksuit to be Jeff's only client though. Dude's busy running a website. And the Doctor has his head in the clouds at all times; it's possible the name could've slipped his mind.

@aurahack: Not going to PAX East (so feel free to ignore this :p) but I try to make it to PAX Prime every year and I'd definitely be interested in this. You've done such a great job with these!

I never found the criticism of Cowboy Bebop to be all filler worthwhile. It's just a different way to approach a series. Like Jeff said on UPF, Star Trek sets itself up as a framework in which to tell random sci-fi stories. Cowboy Bebop has very much the same structure. Now if that's not your thing, that's fine, but it's a totally valid format.

If I'd never seen a Star Wars movie and I read this thread, I would be less likely to watch them instead of more. Despecialized Edition? You people are loco.

Just watch them on Blu-Ray, for fuck's sake. If you've never seen a Star Wars movie before, you're not going to give a shit whether a guy in a green rubber mask shoots first or not.

The special effects look cheap and are distracting and the other changes (which go far beyond who shot first) are distasteful. You don't have to have seen the theatrical cuts to realize that.

But you do have to have seen the theatrical cuts to really give two shits about it.

And guess what, everything looks like shit on VHS. I'll take a remastered Blu-Ray with its CGI dinosaurs over a grainy pan & scan cassette, but I guess I'm the crazy one.

I saw all the original movies for the first time last year by watching all the Despecialized versions, then watching YouTube videos where they compare the originals to the Blu-Ray releases.

As someone who doesn't really give a shit about Star Wars (at least not as much as some other people), those changes are really fucking stupid. So I guess you're right, but I really do think you're seeing a worse movie if you're just watching the Blu-Rays.
