    Re: It's Adventure Time!

    Just saw Nemesis. Does anybody else find Peppermint Butler's ability to travel through corners reminiscent of the short story The Hounds of Tindalos?

    Re: It's Adventure Time!

    all very impeartant questions. i guess when i think about it, athena does kinda remind me of josh+margies, altho ill admit i dont remember much other than that athena came out of zeus' skull in terms of the specifics of that story.

    as for who would win..... i dunno they both have such vague powers with unspecified semi-arbitrary limitations it's hard to say. on the one hand i kind of want to say bill, because his powers seem kind of more all-affecting, but on the other hand for some reason he hasn't really used them in any ways that are pearticularly cheap, and he keeps getting outed by two twin children siblings, so clearly there are some limitations in place and overall magic man seems a bit more threatening. bill might be able to trick him somehow but magic man doesnt seem all that dumb so i dunno.

    i have never read the hounds of tindalos. but peppearmint butler seems like the kind of dude who'd borrow concepts from interesting stuff like that.

    That was indeed the main similarity that I had noticed. Though there was also similarity in the matter of him already being able to speak and walk immediately afterwards.

    Well, to summarize the similarities in case you haven't read a synopsis either, the most salient trait of the titular beasts was their ability to travel through the corners in walls and then reemerge from any other corner in the universe, which as I said kind of seems to be what Peppermint Butler does in Nemesis and Death In Bloom

    Re: It's Adventure Time!

    Have you ever seen the movie Cube 2: Hypercube?

    I just rewatched it, and now that I see it again, the conduct of the character Simon Grady kind of reminds me of the "Twisted, lost-soul boss-guys" from the Adventure Time episode Dungeon Train (except he had more 'twisted' and less 'boss guy' in his character than they did)

    Re: It's Adventure Time!

    haha, I was thinking how weird it was to hear all those Futurama-y voices in the Everything's Jake episode, I didn't even realize until I saw a post on tumblr that it was because of the Jake / Bender connection. Pretty clever! I liked that episode a lot.

    And I liked Is that you? even better. So freaking good. Really creative, cool visuals, awesome story. It's really impressive how much they manage to cram into 11 minutes sometimes. Also, I always love it when

    Yeah Is That You was great. It was probably one of the best episodes I've seen in a really long time. All the weird plot things were cool, and

    Just a heads up in case anyone is interested. The Art of Ooo art book is currently at half-price on Barnes and Noble (also apparently Amazon) because of the whole black friday thing. And there's a general coupon that can bring the price for it down 5 more dollars. So that's something.

    The latest ep The Cooler is very much sums my suspicion that perhaps Princess Bubblegum.

    Yeah, at this point she's even more of a sociopath than a number of other characters that are actually beings of supernatural evil (Hunson Abadeer, Kee-oth, Maja the Sky-Witch, Peppermint Butler)

    Re: It's Adventure Time!

    That was certainly an interesting episode. It was good that FP confronted PB out in the open. I worried that they wouldn't do anything about PB's craziness other than veiled references to it.
    Here's to hoping that FP asks Finn to help her stage an attack on the Candy Kingdom. Civil war in Ooo would be cool to see at some point.

    Re: It's Adventure Time!

    im a little skeptical of pb's reform. the part where she turns off the computer grid would be the kind of thing where normally i would think she had a backup or something. but since that was only shown for the benefit of the audience i guess it's supposed to be played straight. but i feel like something big needs to happen w/ pb's paranoia before they can really resolve it
