Thing is, I feel like the only demographic that an awards show like that would pull is one that was around in whatever time period is being spotlighted in that particular show. Thus wouldn't really lead to any sort of impact in our current media, considering the shows wouldn't be viewed by anyone of our generation. :( Of course, that's a generalization and I'm sure there would be a stray few young'ns that's interests have been piqued which could lead to the spreading of older music via social media or something.

Netflix just added a whole bunch of stuff recently. Lots of classic Cartoon Network shows like Powerpuff Girls and Johnny Bravo. Ugh, like I didn't have enough options. Now I'll have an even hard time deciding what to watch.

I really wish Netflix was available in New Zealand :( Sadly, the powers that be seem to be adamant that Netflix never arrives here, or at least, without outrageous subscription fees and various other extortionate pricing.

I was so happy when I saw this as I was browsing titles. I'm totally going to do an Adventure Time marathon over the weekend.

It all comes down to theme tunes. Either this:



Or this:



They're both great, but Johnny Bravo would win my vote.

My vote goes to PPG. I love the dramatic "Sugar. Spice. And everything nice..." at the beginning. I feel simultaneously young and old seeing that theme again.

PPG had two great theme songs! The intro, and the feisty victory song in the credits! I have the latter on my iPod, lmao.

Not a whole lot beats the PPG theme, really. I need to get crackin' on Netflix or I'll share the same fate as Scarf.

You're all cray-cray. PPG the show is better than Johnny Bravo, but their theme tunes tell a different story.

They are both really good. But I still remember the PPG theme off by heart to this day so...

It's like choosing between two of your children. I just can't. :(

I'm so glad Netflix added all the classic Cartoon Network stuff. Nostalgia, everywhere.

I feel your feels, Live!

Who else is excited for Oblivion? It seems like the typical Tom Cruise hack-and-slash end-of-the-world movie, but it looks interesting nonetheless. Something about Morgan Freeman's glasses has me entirely all too amused.

That is better. Thanks for that. I haven't listened to the new FOB album yet, but I'm about to. I know three songs from it' "My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light em Up)", "The Phoenix" , and "Young Volcanoes" and I really liked those so I'm thinking I might like the rest of the album. Thank God for Spotify. I'm honestly just happy Fall Out Boy are back and have new music out.

Though I've heard it's gotten mixed to positive reviews from fans. Some saying they sold out, but this rant from one my friends pretty much sums up my thoughts on it.

Spoiler:

It's definitely looking better than it did at first. I might be tempted to see it when it's released.

As for Fall Out Boy, I can't say I share the same sentiments as you, but that's because I don't much listen to them and never really have. I might give them a listen at some point, since I tend to stay in my own genre circle, for the most part, and that's a practice I should get out of if at all possible. Speaking of which, I'm gearing up for Lovato's new album Demi soon. If Heart Attack is any example of the album's quality, then I'm game.

I should see the Superman trailer when I get the chance. Not being a Superman fan I'm expecting to see it with low expectations. I'm sure it'll be different from the last Superman film, but oh boy was that one made of too much plastic.

I hope it's a good movie and does well though. The better that DC superhero movies do the better the chances of a Wonder Woman movie getting made. Wonder Woman being like the only female superhero that seems to have any chance of being made into a movie.

A Wonder Woman movie would be great! Diana Prince vs Cheetah, or Circe, one of her major villains! It's a shame none of her enemies have the star power of any of the crazy Batman villains though :(

There was that aborted TV pilot that had Adrienne Palicki as WW but didn't get picked up at the last minute. Although most of it was made up of WW being pissed that she couldn't find a man and eating Ben and Jerry's with her BFFs. And no, I am not joking.

For your consideration, the Man of Steel.

While talking movie trailers, there's the Hunger Games Catching Fire teaser trailer out now.

Oh, and I just saw some of the new show Hannibal. I can't believe it's made by the same guy who did Pushing Daisies. But I can. I love how everything has a kind of late 70s / early 80s style despite being a modern show.

Seems more story driven than I thought it'd be. Kind of reminds me how the most recent Spiderman movie was incredibly story driven and I liked that a lot better than the hack and slash predecessors.

Am I the only one underwhelmed by the trailer? It just fails to get any sort of real reaction out of me, and I say this as a pretty big Superman fan.
