I explained before the great shame that I watch “TMZ Live” and this whole “TMZ” parody thing “ZMT” is part of something I’ve been working on for a while, but I kept getting sidetracked. I finally felt like I wanted to introduce the idea. So here we are. “Levi Harvell” is based on the head guy at “TMZ”, Harvey Levin… He’s a real piece of work. A VERY strange guy.
I said it before, but it bares repeating “TMZ” is terrible all the way around. They may be second only to “Fox News” in spreading fake information. When it’s harmless gossip it’s one thing, but they definitely steer people into what to think.
Sometime I must admit there are moments that are pretty funny. Special when people on the show my Harvey look stupid. Also they read their hate mail and that’s pretty great.
Tomorrow Levi returns with Freedom Female and Admiral Star to talk about “emotional distress” that Barbarious caused Admiral Star. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
I messed up in yesterday’s comic. Special-Girl says something about the country Niger being on Trump’s travel ban and it’s actually the country Chad. Besides just bashing Trump which is good thing to do in and of itself I wanted to show that he’s not just a terrible president and a terrible person he’s a loser. A loser who’s only success comes from laundering the money or mobsters and dictators. At best he’s too dumb to know, but more than likely he’s just smart enough to know it’s wrong but doesn’t care. Sure I know I’m preaching to the choir…But hey, the choirs need sermons too…
Tomorrow we get off the soap box as Freedom Female and Admiral Star talk with someone as they make an apology. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
There’s this song that’s been getting some buzz that I heard about last week. It’s called “Spar” by Dreezy ft. 6LACK & Kodak Black. The main part drawing attention is the part in the hook that goes “n’ if I go to DC I’m tyrna spar with Trump”. This is the inspiration today and tomorrow’s comic. Though I still kinda try I don’t keep up with music like I use to so I don’t know any of these artists. I’ve heard of Kodak Black though. The song itself is pretty good until the 3rd verse with is just awful (is that Kodak Black). Seriously it’s so bad it ruins the whole song. The beat is pretty hard too. It makes me mad I can’t find the instrumental.
Tomorrow the 3 have a lively debate of on the Trump presidency as it currently stands… Nah it’s actually more of this. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
The History Of Comics With Q-boy #66 Ditch The Chick, Drop The Thot, N’ Fly Ya Booty Off Cuz’ Duty Calls (Panel 3)
I know it’s been a while but here’s panel 3 from “The History Of Comics With Q-boy” 66. This panel is based on a panel from “Wonder Woman” 177 where “Wonder Woman” fights “Supergirl”. You can check that out here http://bit.ly/ww177panel
Check out new “Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations” on Tuesday-Thurdays. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
The Vulture – Though Michael Keaton plays him well his whole deal doesn’t make any sense. With the tech him and his people are able to create there’s much easier (legal or illegal) ways to make money
Hacking – Pretty much all shows with tech people are guilty of this type of stuff, but still we’re supposed to believe some high school kid can hack into a suit created by one of the smartest people in the world. Get the hell outta here!
Zendaya’s Character- She’s annoying and then they reveal something about her that makes it SO much worse. It’s like “Robin” in “The Dark Knight Rises”. That still annoys the hell outta me
“Flash Tompson” – I give em’ credit for trying something different than the stereotypical “jock bully”, but this didn’t quite work.
Needs more “Iron Man” – Not really the movie’s fault, but yeah just give us “Iron Man 4”.
Again decent flick, but not particularly great. Tomorrow we swap out Admiral Star for Fiddy Fo’ as these guys discuss “handling a problem”. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
Be skeptical of anyone telling you they’re going to lower your taxes. An asshole might ask something like “why do you like taxes”? Nobody likes taxes, but everybody (including the assholes against taxes) like the services they help to fund. When you lower taxes often you’re going to either loses needed services or someone’s going to try to do something “the cheap way”. Ask the people in Flint how the “the cheap way” works out.
Some might ask why I keep using the word “asshole”. I use it because I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt. I’m assuming they know all this. Therefore they’re just appealing to people’s worst instincts for money and or power. Also they’re doing this knowing the damage it will cause in people’s lives. That right there makes them an asshole by any definition!
That’s it for this week. Can’t promise I won’t be back on my soapbox, but I don’t plan on it. Check out new “Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations” on Tuesdays-Thursdays. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
Freedom Female, Q-boy, Spiderous-Man & Slowku On Assholes
I said a lot of what I had to say about Grover Norquist’s “guitar tweet” yesterday. Also as I write this it is actually Independence Day so I’ll keep this short. You almost always pay more in the long run when you cut taxes. This is especially true if the word “deregulation” is being thrown around. You not only pay more in actual money but in crime, health, and service.
Tomorrow these guys return to talk on this even more. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
Freedom Female, Q-boy, Spiderous-Man & Slowku On “Splitting Custody”
How What Are Born?!
This whole week of comics is inspired by this tweet last week from Grover Norquist. If you don’t know who this is he the main “anti-tax” guy. Twitter quickly took to tearing this guy apart by schooling him on how taxes work. They showed him how sales taxes help to pay every part of getting the guitar. From road maintenance to police protection, to (if there’s still a music program) the class that would teach his kid to play the guitar.
Let’s go with this story though. Let’s say the sales tax in this story is 10%. I’m pretty sure the highest sales tax in any state is around 7% but let’s go with this to keep the math easy. The tax would be $3.50. Some parents would give the kid the extra money. Some would use this as a valuable lesson on how everything costs more than it seems. Grover here is an asshole and goes to “Twitter” to whine about it.
This isn’t what this argument is really about though. It’s really about how society works. Do we pay all pay a little extra to make society better or believe it’s “everyone for themselves”? Let’s adjust this story now… Let’s say the guitar now costs (an UNTHINKABLE) $50. In this world though, that extra money ensures that a poor kid whose parents have no insurance can get life-saving surgery. I figure even the stingiest parent gives their kid at least $15 a week for an allowance. So would you wait one week to save the kids life?
Some people would start with the excuses. “The parents don’t work hard enough”. “They should’ve worked harder in school”. The same school they don’t want to fund with taxes. The excuses are where it starts. That’s how assholes are born… Tomorrow these guys continue on. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
Freedom Female, & Admiral Fire & Spiderous-Man On Admiral Star
“Sailor Moon S” & “SuperS” : From Bad To Worse
Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations 221 – Special-Girl, Freedom Female, & Admiral Fire & Spiderous-Man On Admiral Star
I’ve now watched “Sailor Moon S” and “Sailor Moon SuperS”. These are season 3 and 4 of “Sailor Moon” if you don’t know. They only put of the second part of the “Viz” dub for “S” last week so I’ve only watched the “Cloverway” dubs… Gotta say “Sailor Moon” goes from bad to worse here…I’ll go into more detail about each season later but generally:
The new “Sailors” “Uranus” and “Neptune” take up way too much of the spotlight. They’re also not very interesting characters. These are the famous lesbian “Sailors”. The “Cloverway” dub tries to avoid the lesbian stuff. They then make the strange decision to make them cousins. For a big part of the season they won’t tell the other Sailors what they’re up to. Even though it would take them like 5 minutes. It’s dumb
I will say though I dislike “Rini/Chibiusa” less in this season. It’s funny that her powers don’t work most of the time and only cause pain without harming enemies.
At a certain point “Sailor Moon” has to transform, go “Super Saiyan” then do her one-hit kill move to kill enemies. This is also dumb
There’s a “Sailor” of destruction that it able to destroy an entire planet?! Why?! Again I say, WHAT IS THE NATURE OF THEIR POWERS?!
They commit the ulitmate sin here… They leave the big final fight as something you can’t see. In fact the whole last fight with the big bad is SO cheap. They use A LOT of still photos instead of showing action. That’s bullshit, man!
For a while the show becomes like a bad American girl’s cartoon from the 80’s. There’s even a villain with a weird voice and a sidekick and a flying horse. This person isn’t the “real big bag” though. With the now obvious pattern of this show the “real big bad” shows up about halfway in. She’s “Queen Beryl 2”, the less interesting version. Time also gets wasted with every useless side character that should’ve disappeared forever by now
There’s some CREEPY stuff going down with “Rini/Chibiusa” and “Pegasus”. ESPECIALLY in the “Freaky Friday” episode where she and “Sailor Moon” switch ages
The name of the attacks at this point have become self-parody
They just say eff any thought about how gravity works in the last episode
That’s it for this week. Check out new “Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations” on Tuesdays- Thursdays. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
Freedom Female, & Admiral Star & Slowku On “Getting Around”
“All Eyez On Me” : Back Reincarnated
I know I’m repeating myself, but I have say “All Eyez On Me” is a pretty good movie. It’s imperfect and not a “polished” as “Straight Outta Compton”, but it’s still pretty good. I’ve already covered the main legitimate complaint of critics which it’s a bit “jumpy”. Generally, they are WAY too harsh on this movie for some reason.
I’ll move on to the “civilian” complaints. Most of the complaints I’ve seen are nitpicky at best. Most of this is 2pac “Stans” trying to prove how much they know. Half the time they’re either wrong or are guessing about things. None of that is important because YES the movie uses creative license with some events. Here’s some random complaints I’ve seen:
Jada Smith’s complaints- There’s a scene where 2pac read her a poem that didn’t actually happen. Also there a scene where her character confronts 2pac backstage at a concert. Okay this is here to show 2pac’s poems without having to go into a long backstory about them. With the confrontation it’s to show she disapproved some some things Pac was doing. Which she did. All this is is saving time by condensing. There’s nothing “hurtful” like she claimed
Anachronisms- People have said some uses an “Iphone 7” and “NBA2k” game was in it. I didn’t notice either of these. If true it’s a genuine gripe. Not movie ruining but a couple real flaws
So I started watching one “Youtube” review about the movie and it starts with them going on and on about how 2pac worked in pizza shop. I stopped the video soon after that. That’s how trivial some of the complaints are. Sad part is the movie DOES acknowledge it.
“Hail Mary” performance- There’s a concert scene where the song is performed. The song wasn’t released until after 2pac and wasn’t performed at this specific concert. It was a way to include a performance of a fan-favorite song. Dumb complaint.
“Death Row East” – There’s conflicting reports about Pac wanting to leave “Death Row”. In some of his last interviews Pac talks about “Death Row East” and seem to want to work with “Death Row” for the foreseeable future. In the movie Suge offers to be partners with Pac and tells him he can run “Death Row East”. People say the “Pac running “Death Row East” thing isn’t true. Story-wise it simplifies the matter and gives Pac a concrete reason for staying with “Death Row”. Right or wrong it’s a choice that works to me
“Final Car Ride With Suge” – In the car ride before the 2nd shooting Pac plays some new (as in present day) song by his group “The Outlawz”. Supposedly, they were actually bumping “Hail Mary” at this time. The current “Outlawz” song is kinda shameless, but whatever those guys deserve some shine. Also when “2pac” is shot gospel music plays. I’m up and down on that choice, but again not a movie ruining thing.Tommorow, Special-Girl and Freedom Female return with Spiderous-Man and Admiral Fire. They discuss issues with Admiral Star. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
In the end if you want accurate accounts of 2pac’s life there’s MANY movies people’s personal accounts of him. And MANY interviews with his own word. I think people wanted a movie as great as him. It’s not possible. Just the amount of material alone is too much for a single film. It’s a solid B movie, and if you haven’t seen it I recommend it.
