Post a picture, entertain me!

I chuckled, and don't feel bad about it, though I think I should.

The title of "French" cinema isn't in regards to the spoken language of the film, though. It's the country of origin. Otherwise, by the logic argued above, the vast majority of American cinema would actually be English cinema. ;)

I have one friend.

Nah, I thought about posting the same thing, but I already posted stupid stuff about an ad for Rock in Rio advertising a show in Not-Rio on Twitter and wasn't in the mood to discuss something else that could be drug down to nothing but semantics or whatever.

See?

How the hell is this semantics? It's from the website, it's the point of the festival. It's a French language cinema festival.

Because, as I said, the term "French Cinema" has generally been accepted as reference to nationality rather than spoken language. You can have French films that don't speak a single word of French. Likewise, as I said, any American film spoken in another language would not be considered "American Cinema." Same for African films, Australian films, British films... While I get what the film festival is going for (and I don't fault them), they kinda sorta misuse the term "French Cinema" as it is commonly and long been understood.

Actually, I don't know if it was magneto-optical or floptical, but what I had was an Orb drive:

I was enjoying the trailer, and I know the internet is going to be a mass of people hating on Bay no matter what he does with it, so I was really willing to give it a shot... then they showed Raph's face. Even the silly scene with them sliding down the mountain was fun in a ridiculous TMNT kind of way. I just HATE the facial design on these things.

Yeah, I LOVE their designs overall (the fact that party/surfer dude Mikey has the obligatory surfer shell necklace? Awesome attention to detail!), but the faces are maybe a bit too human for me...

They look like weird green babies.

There's an artist called Dave Rapoza who did a series of rendered TMNT paintings that would have worked waaaay better.

I have all those. Love them. Absolutely love them. I think my main issue with the design they went ahead with, is that they have actual noses. Not just nostrals, but full on noses, and that's just weird looking.

masks that stick perfectly to your brow and eye socket... how the hell do they work?

Yeah, I thought the same thing. The noses just look weird.

No love for cassettes, guys?

Yarp. Exactly my problem.

Sorry, wasn't targeted towards you specifically or anything. Just to me, just because the films are all in French as a language doesn't mean they are all from a similar culture, yet it is referred to as a French language culture. That's, at least, my impression of it, or how my brain parses the different ideas. But it's a silly rabbit hole to get into altogether, and next thing you know people are linking definitions from Wiki's or Dictionary.com or some such for what amounted to someone being amused by a poster.

No offense or such a thing was intended.

Now then, on topic:

Wait.. what?!?!

Is that from the new movie?

Is that the unholy union between Shrek and Voldemort? I saw it on Twitter and thought it was a 'shop.

That's the most terrifying thing I've ever seen.

Yep. Spiders are cuddly. They get rid of ants, and keep my daughters from getting uppity.

It is a 'shop, considering the actual screenshot was posted on this page by WipeOut.

That also looked like a 'shop. I'm so confused.

Duuuuuuude, what if we're all 'shops on the hard drive of some giant, and he's a 'shop on the hard drive of some bigger giant, and he's a 'shop . . .

It's Michelangelo + Voldemort + Shrek for some reason.

Any love for the SyQuest EZ135?

These things should have ate the Zip 100's lunch but better marketing won out over better performance yet again. My first computer (Macintosh Performa 600CD hand-me-down) came with one of these and 6 disks for it. It may have been faster than the 160MB internal HDD. Also I totally don't miss troubleshooting SCSI chains
