Off Topic / Re: Back to the Office
« on: 22 July, 2021, 01:07:43 PM »
Right now, however, I think it’s a very different ask. We are in a pandemic with rapidly increasing cases. It’s reckless to expect people to return to office work, just because a hapless government says it’s OK.

I'm absolutely convinced this whole, unnecessary "back to work" drive is being pushed by lobbying from commercial landlords, who are absolutely terrified of a permanent and significant contraction in the demand for office space.

This. Absolutely this.

I'm also guessing this is related to the massive push in buying residential properties that investment firms seem to be doing, which is making buying a house *very* difficult for people I know.
The rich have got to keep that rent coming in if they're going to continue sitting on their arses!

Disney Par Excellence.

Maybe just don’t watch the movies, then…? No one is forcing you to…


Same goes for the Goonies - so many posts from people who haven't seen the film, yet still feel they can slag it off!
Do I love The Goonies because I was a kid when I first saw it? Yes, probably. What's wrong with that?

...and you're proud of this?

This is straight-up trolling. I’ve blocked this little fucker and I suggest you do the same.
Is this sort of language really necessary?
It looks like plain ignorance to me (from Milstar that is). If you want this place to be an echo chamber then by all means block anyone who doesn't listen. Alternatively, show him more evidence that he is wrong or just ignore him. Broadcasting that you are blocking him is not exactly helpful or inclusive is it?

There's things going on in this thread that are faaar more worthy of your time than Jim's choice of language...

Milstar - Can you please post up some kind of resources for your info? You write like you have some sort of historical knowledge that the rest of us aren't privy to, if you'll pardon my choice of words there.
You've discounted a historical photo as 'unconfirmed', which leads me to think that you believe the other opinions you've posted (regarding diversity in conflict) *have* been confirmed. Again, can you please post your sources?

A perfect example of an MCU character that had a meaningful and complete arc, shocking death, then cheap resurrection for a Disney Plus series.

If you'd been watching it, you'd know he hasn't been resurrected.

Also, this is Marvel — not staying dead is perfectly in keeping with the comics!

S'right. I totally get the Marvel burn-out, but the TV stuff has so far been brilliant IMO. There's loads I'd like to discuss about Loki, but it would all be too spoilery!

Seriously though, it's all very much worth a watch  :)

Perhaps ultimately Death simply enjoys causing terror, and all that life is a crime guff is just a cover story. With Gunderson not recognizing him as a threat, there’s no point in the killing, so he judges her innocent in a fit of cognitive dissonance.


I've always hoped for a story that shows he's really just a little REDACTED who gets off on murder, with the whole 'life is a crime' mantra being just an excuse to cover his back. I thought things were going in that direction after Young Death, but alas no.

She was also judged 'innocent' by Judge Death, whatever that meant. Innocent as in she never 'lived' or 'had a life'?
Never quite understood that one.

Mrs Gunderson is MC1's Tom Bombadil.

'Ron Smith (pirates of the black atlantic, question of judgment etc etc)'

A Ron Smith collection, be it UC or a massive hardback, is looooong overdue!
Go on, Tharg, do it! The Complete Ron Smith Dredds (with annotations where required)!

Brilliant as always, Sir.
God but I wish I had more disposable income!

Great stuff! Your recent stuff on farcebook is also equally stunning, although I have no idea what adjustment layers are! ;)

I certainly never noticed this until just now but check out the badge names on those judges in this Fabry Dredd panel...  :lol:

This should link to the full size image that I did, hope that helps Jim.
Thanks for doing this.

Thanks all. The age thing, and the non-sexual thing, were definitely on my mind when doing this.
I still feel I was too kind though, and painted her at mid-40s instead of the early sixties that she now is.
 One to work on I guess!

Prog / Re: Prog 2233:Regened - Ready to face the law?
« on: 26 May, 2021, 05:37:17 PM »
Another great Regened Prog, thanks Joko Jargo :)

Best thing about Regened for me is that it's free of 2000AD's baggage, in the sense that it's free to follow it's own creative paths instead of trying to 'fit in' with the accepted idea of Prog content.

I've probably not worded that very well, but hopefully you get my gist!

And yeah, if Matt's stunning piece is the final contribution, that's more than a fitting end to some great tributes.

I was thinking that when these works are collated together, yours would make for a very fitting end-piece.
