The State Of Fandom

Not posting this for the clicks or attention, mostly as an easy way to archive it because I feel the message is important…also, Fitz told me too!
This morning, I posted a thread on Twitter about the overall current state of fandom, this is that thread.
Here’s the link to the original thread.

Seeing a lot of folks talking about the problems in the Anthill lately.
It’s a problem I’ve been noticing with all fandoms in recent years.
WWE, Scooby, Star Wars, Pods, all have been riddled with anger and fighting based mostly on differences of opinion and how to express them.
Definitely deeper and broader issues than that in some cases, but that seems to be the most deeply rooted cause.

It truly seems fandom is broken, and it appears that, sadly, many would rather plant their flags and dig their heels in than try and fix those problems.
Others still would rather use the current choppy state of the fandom waters to spin & push agendas under the facade of defending or protecting some & ignoring others going through the same.

It’s sad.
To the point that myself & some I talk to would rather not engage with fellow fans anymore in hopes of trying to fend off the negativity & potentially losing passion for things we have great love for.

The personal attacks against people providing entertainment (free or paid) are disgusting & need to stop.
Most of this shit comes from adults acting worse than children.
A lot of people are preaching that a better example needs to be set for the youth while privately feeding the shit storm.
Take your own advice & quit the back biting, game playing horseshit already, it’s goddamn tiring.

This is a rambling mess, but motherfucker, this world is fuckin’ shitty enough.
This world is brutal, we need escapism.
Stop trying to ruin it for everybody else and for fucksake just like what you like.

Episode 053: Yo, This Mafucka Got A Cape On!

Scoobynatural

In this episode, the fellers is talkin’ the Star Wars again, this time they talk over the Han Solo trailer and break down the age and timeline of a certain wookiee, which spins into some Battlefront II talk again.

They discuss some shapes, then Doom gets into a detailed breakdown of ScoobyNatural and every aspect of that episode’s sweetness (***Spoilers***, He loved it!), then they talk some Scooby news and rumors.

The show is ended with some sweet sweet comics talk as we learn that Fitz turned Doom and makes him feel dirty, but things do end up getting Fantastic and Spectacular for them both as they tease some upcoming funness!

Enjoy, gang, BYE!

Scooby-Doo And Guess Who? Set To Debut

Variety reports that the next Scooby-Doo series is set to premiere on Boomerang sometime in 2019!

And, as previously speculated and confirmed by Grey Griffin, it will indeed be a sort of reboot of The New Scooby-Doo Movies with each episode featuring guest stars.

The Variety piece reads: “Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?”: In the series from Warner Bros. Animation, the Mystery Inc. gang faces some of their toughest mysteries yet. To crack the cases, Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy and Scooby-Doo will join forces with some of the biggest names in celebrity and pop culture — including NBA star Chris Paul; recording artists Halsey and Sia; Ricky Gervais, Kenan Thompson, Bill Nye, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Mark Hamill, and Steve Urkel (voiced by Jaleel White, reprising his iconic role), as well as characters like Wonder Woman, Batman, Sherlock Holmes, and The Flash. Chris Bailey (“Kim Possible”) serves as producer with Sam Register (“Teen Titans Go!”) as executive producer.

Personally, I’m super excited for this!
I just hope they pick a good style for the models and animation.
A couple of those guest stars are a bit surpising though (Ricky Gervais? Urkel?), but it does fit into the Scooby Movies/Team-Up vibe, so I’m not worried.
Let us know what you think in the comments!

Episode 051: Off The Rails 6 – The Great Space Ghoster

MV5BOTQ1YWMyNjQtZWZmNy00YzJmLTg4YzctYmY2ZTI3YzBjN2I4XkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyNjExODE1MDc@._V1_UY1200_CR74,0,630,1200_AL_In this episode, we gotta be honest, gang, Doom’s audio is dogshit, but as you’ll learn, it’s about to change soon.

But also, we take the tangents to a whole new level of Off The Raildom when we talk about Bellywashers, stealing back packs from 1st graders, and deaths on Sesame Street and in Villages full of People.

Some Scooby figures and DVDs are used as jumping off points for failing businesses and cartoons from the golden days of yore, so sit back and enjoy some sweet ass Nerd Blitz deviation, gang!

TNB Commentaries 012: Scooby-Doo & Batman The Brave And The Bold

IMG_20180108_161014.jpgPlease turn off your cellphones and join Doom & Fitz as they load up and head to Gotham…in the Mystery Machine!

For our 12th commentary, we head back to 1 month ago in 2018 for Scooby-Doo & Batman: The Brave And The Bold starring Frank Welker, Grey Griffin, Deidrich Bader, and Tara Strong.

They gush about how great this movie and both franchises are, debt callers for people that changed their numbers long ago, miscolored dog members, talking chimps, and backyard BBQs.

Sit back and enjoy the lovefest, gang, this is a good one.
