You don't give us a lot of context. :) I'm guessing you're surprised or upset to see that Tyler Hoechlin will be playing Superman in the second season of the Supergirl TV series?

That's Superman?! He looks so puny and, I don't know... constipated. :P Melissa Benoist is ok, but the show is pretty average TBH. Here's hoping WW will be good next year, although I'm not too enthused by Chris Pine as Steve Trevor.

P.S. Oh, and did you hear about the female Van Helsing who bites vapires to cure them? Sounds to me like a weird fever dream some kid had. No great hopes for quality TV there either.

While I was writing this post about Hercules graphics...
...it occurred to me that I know about another black-and-white Hercules...
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spiff_and_Hercules wrote: Spiff and Hercules is the English translation of a French comic strip titled Pif et Hercule, featuring an anthropomorphic brown-yellow dog ("Pif") and a black-white cat ("Hercule")
I don't know if the designers of the graphics card were thinking of this cat when they chose a name for their black-and-white card...

Hey Norbert...
You mentioned here that you have Bastion: viewtopic.php?p=15325#p15325
I think I found a screenshot of a cameo of the main character in some other game...
http://m.cdn.blog.hu/tg/tgamet/image/Du ... astion.jpg (Dust: An Elysian Tail)
According the the blog post, it also has some references to Super Meat Boy and FEZ.

EDIT: I see you already played Dust: http://steamcommunity.com/id/EndeavourA ... hievements

Yeah, but only a little bit (1.2 hrs on record). :)
I didn't run into the cameos you mentioned.

There's an interesting story of how I found that game...

I was listening to some songs.
Among them was this "Little Marbles Köket" posted in the forum: viewtopic.php?p=10247#p10247
A happy little song (with some amateur-loooking footage) even though I don't understand the lyrics... :)
(Yes, I went through that whole topic some time ago. And this was one of the most memorable songs for me.)
Lower on that page are some game music videos.
"Hey, why not listen those too?"

I opened one of them on YouTube, and one of the recommendations had this thumbnail: https://i.ytimg.com/vi/WjM9mFy22ks/hqdefault.jpg (Jazz Jackrabbit)
"Hey, that yellow female bunny does not seem familiar..."
I looked up the game at the usual place: http://www.abandonia.com/en/games/26648 ... +1995.html
So her name is Lori.
And also looked into its forum thread: http://www.abandonia.com/en/forum?url=s ... hp?t=22252
Oh, she has a fansite: http://www.loricentral.com/
Yeah, I can kind of understand why people like her... ;)

One of the banners there: http://www.loricentral.com/images/banne ... banner.jpg
She somehow reminds me of... http://images.neopets.com/pets/xweetok_blue_baby.gif -- Maybe that's why I clicked it?
It leads to: http://www.noogy.com/
I first looked at stuff from the movie-in-progress-but-paused.
http://www.noogy.com/image/video/2003may05.html -- Somehow this reminds me of the Ministry of Silly Walks...
And her clothing reminds me of Princess Jasmine...
Too bad she's not in the game... ;)

I looked at the Dust game only a bit later.

Yeah, kind of. :)

Did you already knew about the fandom? Cause you knew its name.

:lol:
Spoiler: show
Oh, man.
Sorry for the late reply.
There's a song by Chi-A.D. called "Astral Warrior".
It contains (ex., ex.) the lyrics "I have seen the things that you can only dream about."
When I was young I listened to this song.
I have occasionally been repeating that sentence since, although mistakenly without the word "the".
Anyway, I was thinking it might be funny to reply to your question with a video of that man saying these words; the original source.
You know, given the deviating nature of the subculture and some of its connotations.
So, I tracked down the source. Watched the film, even.
It's a fragment near the end of 1996's Gulliver's Travels.
I discovered that, unfortunately, not only does the man say "seen the things" instead of "seen things" (which would have made it funnier, IMO)...
...the movie doesn't even show him saying the words.
Ah, whatever, it was still worth it. ;)
Now I have the fragment lying around, re-linkable in other situations.
I do like the background music that accompanies the thing.

As for the furry fandom: I'm almost 40, I have heard of and seen most things.
Yes, I already knew about the fandom.

That reminds me of one of the quotes on the about:robots page of Firefox...
