To all you Avatar fans out there, Happy Avatar Day! :party: :onfire: :airborne: :squee: :dance: :w00t: :eager: :giggle: :#1:

Ten years since the debut of Avatar: The Last Airbender, one of the best animated shows ever made and by far my most favorite cartoon of all time. :D How time flies, it's unbelievable. :o But I still remember it like it was yesterday when I watched it for the first time and boy, it's been one hell of a ride. 8-) It was very much unlike anything to premiere in the West before, and I don't know when we'll get an experience like that again but Avatar definitely stands the test of time and it's great that such an epic series is still so alive and well. And here's hoping the franchise and its fandom continue to go strong for a long time more. :thumbsup:

If you're a fan, share some of your favorite things about the series or your fondest memories of it below if you like. Whether it's of Avatar or Korra, or heck even the comics. ;) And whip out those Avatar DVDs if you got 'em, seems like a good day to experience the ride again. =)

To those who don't know already, New England, mostly Massachusetts, is about to be hit by a massive snowstorm tonight. We're talking as much as three to four feet of snow, and those worst affected will be those closer to Boston while those of us in the west, like myself will not be in much better shape to dodge this thing, which is bound to last until early Wednesday morning.

Travel bans are going into effect, the airports are closing, everyone's stocking up, and nearly everybody's been told to go home and to stay home. Power outages are likely.

That being said, any of you not in the path of this thing, please hope that nobody is hurt by this storm and hope that we don't get the full brunt of it. Hope that we don't suffer huge outages either, but in the case that that does happen, please anticipate that in case I am out of contact for a long period of time this week. It's gonna be tough getting power lines up and running again with this much snow on the ground. So if I suddenly fall silent, you should expect that to be the reason why. I'll be fine, we're all stocked up and got the lamps out if we do go out. I'm just gonna hope we get lucky.

And for any of my friends who are up in this area, I hope you guys fare okay too. Snowstorms are nothing new for this area and we've rode through some really bad ones ever since the Halloween storm four years ago, but all the same I hope everyone is already safe at home and indoors.

So that's all, if any of us suddenly go silent here, you will know why. Hope that we don't get four feet, guys. Hopefully this journal will have been pointless and we do keep our power, but better stay only cautiously optimistic.

Well, that's one way of putting it I suppose.

Zoey must take a stab at the Mike-Zoey relationship's cold, black heart.

Akira500:iconakira500:
I so regret it ever happening. It may be the cause for all of the stupidity and lack of logic or point in All-Stars. And it's kind of a black mark on ROTI too. Zoke was just a bad idea made worse by the most idiotic execution. It's shameful.

Agreed man. Whenever I think of this couple, I get shivers.

I've seen bad writing before, but this truly took the cake.

Akira500:iconakira500:
My sincerest and deepest apologies and regrets for not recogizing those problems so much sooner before swearing them off. Because there are SO MANY problems with Zoke, it's insanity.

"I can't tell Zoey about my disorder or she'll be killed." So instead, have said personalities kill her...... "I can't talk to Mike about his issues. What's wrong with Mike? I got to do something!" Tries killing herself to get his attention

Braofo:iconbraofo:
I mean here's how I see it. Even with two seasons, Zoey still can't properly talk to Mike about problems she has with him and Mike can't have the balls to tell her any of his secrets. How is this healthy?
Thu Mar 5, 2015, 10:18 PM
Braofo:iconbraofo:
Because it was the same shitty plot over and over and over again. Like we get if Zoke had to be the main focus of ROTI(where they failed to really give them depth) did they really need ANOTHER season for the same cause?
Thu Mar 5, 2015, 10:17 PM
Akira500:iconakira500:
I'll similarly be tempted to write off any season where Zoke is prominent again. ROTI REALLY should've been the extent of it if it had to exist. So many people blame them for how bad TDAS was. They aren't exactly wrong about that.

So Nostalgia Critic recently made a review for The Haunted Mansion movie with Eddie Murphy in it...I will say I've seen snippets of the film years ago so I don't remember it much at all, but it does not give the Haunted Mansion ride justice. :no:

...Nope, the ride was actually creepy with it's own strange fun feel to it.
