Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

Social aspect & non-splintered access to canon. It's obviously something that appeals to hardcore film buffs, so it can only really work in an urban area with high enough hipster density.

Banpresto, maker of awesome action figures, has been dissolved and absorbed by Bandai Namco's subsidiary Bandai Spirits. Banoresto has been wholly owned by Bandai Namco since 2006 and is simply being consolidated into the relatively new Bandai Spirits.

James Gunn is still out as director, but Disney will be using his script for Guardians of the Galaxy 3. Funny, they won't let him direct for his old comments, but they'll use the script... though I doubt the finished work will be the same as if Gunn was directing it himself.

I had to sit through too many Marvel trailers before Alita, man that was agonizing. Especially contrasted to gorgeous Alita, I'm surprised people still eat that trite shit up, lol. (I mean, I am since Spiderman 2, but it's been like 10 years. THIS IS A MEME THAT NEEDS TO DIEEEE)
Either way, nobody cares about who wrote the script, so Disney's reputation is safe and Gunn still gets some money out of it.

Speaking as someone who's watched Jeopardy! for the vast majority of my life, this is a real gut-punch. There's no one that could possibly fill Trebek's shoes.
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

It hit me pretty hard, too. I was just expecting a retirement announcement.

I'd like to say something positive here, but from personal experience I can't. I had two family members who were diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic cancer, they died within two months of the diagnosis... it moves quick.

Notre Dame cathedral in Paris is on fire. The spire has collapsed, and the fire service say that all woodwork in the building will have been lost - which means also the organ. As there was on-going work to stabilise a crumbling structure, there is a real possibility that not enough of the building will survive for restoration to be possible.
