    Netflix is making another live action anime adaption. :rolleyes:

    Full Metal Alchemist.

    I'm already waiting to sit back and hear complaints about the characters being "white washed" because I already know it's going to consist of Caucasian actors playing non-caucasian roles.

    Like how Rooney Mara regrets playing a white-washed Tiger Lily in that PAN movie.

    I mean . . . the filmmakers' logic was astounding: they couldn't bring in an actual Native American to play Tiger Lily because then they would get accused of racial stereotypes against Native Americans, so they figure to white-wash so it'd be less offensive . . . then turns out white-washing her was just as offensive.

    It's a lose-lose either way with society.

    Also, I jumped the gun. Turns out the movie is actually going to be from Japan with English subtitles. I wonder if Netflix is only doing that just because of all the flack they got on their live action adaption of "Death Note."

    Yup.

    I remember when Bob Newhart came to my town years ago and he began his old Driving Instructor routine, a lady in the audience actually heckled him for making it a woman driver, because it was sexist. "Oh, okay. Well, it doesn't have to be a woman driver. It can be a Chinese driver," he said before making a bunch of stereotypical-sounding Chinese gibberish, "I can do that for eight minutes if you'd prefer." Guess it's better to be racist than sexist. ;) :p

    Don't worry, he still the routine with the woman driver, and it was still just as funny.

    The fact that I can't shake this cough.

    Still sick? Sorry to hear that.

    Not really, it's just that this cough is hanging on.

    Lingering probably.

    So I'm on a Discord, but because most others on it are in other timezones, it's mostly active when I would be in bed for the night, and pretty dead when it's day for me, so . . . meh.

    which discord
     
  14. D'Snowth

    A Chipmunk Discord.

    It's affiliated with a forum I'm a member of, but the Discord has become more active than the forum is, so I've tried getting more involved with that Discord, but again, it's not easy when most everybody else is posting while you're asleep. :p

    Aaaaaaaand the DVD for Fantasia was also scratched. :rolleyes:

    That's pretty sad to be honest.

    You should come on MC Discord sometime! We have very wacky discussions. To say the least. @gavry3 you can back me up on this.

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    I'm on the MC Discord, but I find it gets a little too wacky and unstructured for me.

    yeah it does, up top @Old Thunder

    Yeah, I kind of feel the same way, which is why I try to have more structured conversations over there, but my efforts usually don't go anywhere. I enjoy the wackiness sometimes, but it gets to be a bit much for me. No offense, @gavry3 and Die1000BooberThunder.

    Besides, the forum is always active with many different members on a daily basis, so I just kind of have no reason to be active on the MC Discord. Like I said, the only reason I've been trying to be more active on the Chipmunk Discord is because it's become far more active than the forum it's affiliated with.
