  1. When you Wish Upon a Frog (Book II of the Jim Henson at Disney saga)

    Holy shit. The Good Shephard Group feels like a goddamn Legion of Doom! And just laying down the reasoning of who could flip and why makes a lot of sense! I can't wait to see how it plays out or, indeed, if it even does so.
  2. Jimmy Two: America in Carter's Second Term

    It's definitely going to be interesting going forward as to what the strategy for the Republicans is. As someone who is very fascinated by the gradual homogenization of the Republican party's factions in OTL, it'll be interesting to see if they're able to avoid that fate here.
  3. Bicentennial Man: Ford '76 and Beyond

    Hurrah for Hufstedler! Part of me is very curious as to the two liberal senators who defected on the ESA. Have to say Alan Simpson's always been a bit of a fascinating character for me reading about his resume. Given that he ran for a higher position in OTL but got shut out by Lott, it makes me...
  4. Bicentennial Man: Ford '76 and Beyond

    As a reader who thought "Holy shit this person sounds amazing!" when he first learned of her, I'm all for that!
  5. When you Wish Upon a Frog (Book II of the Jim Henson at Disney saga)

    Look on the one hand the whole 'Civil War' thing is very sad and aggravating to read about as once again Henson has to deal with this bloody argument. But on the other hand, I was in fact eating popcorn and watching on eagerly so I guess I'm a massive hypocrite. I've no understanding of stocks...
  6. Bicentennial Man: Ford '76 and Beyond

    Only reason I bring it up is because the wikipedia article mentions that the Republicans were trying to get him back during the Reagan administration. Now, obviously things are different here and if Zorinsky were to switch it would be a pretty small difference considering A: He's going to be...
  7. Bicentennial Man: Ford '76 and Beyond

    My absence has nothing to do with your writing and more a sense that I'm not nearly as knowledgeable on certain matters. So I'm very glad to weigh in upon something I am actually a little in the know about! PORK! PORK PORK PORK. Man, Askew and Kennedy would be a hell of a combo, especially with...
  8. Ferguson's Book: An Alternative Disney Filmography

    A brief update to confirm that while the story is still ongoing, my own writing is currently taking precedence. Part of me suspects that I've bitten off a bit more than I can chew with this timeline, which is not to say that it is cancelled, merely that my mind is wandering to other ideas. I've...
  9. Jimmy Two: America in Carter's Second Term

    To say nothing of cartoons either! Looking at that big boom of toy-focused cartoons thanks to Reagan's victory and subsequent reform of advertising rules changes the animation industry forever, for ill or for good.
  10. Jimmy Two: America in Carter's Second Term

    And so, at long last, here we are. The end of certainty. Yeah well fuck you too Nancy. God watching the slow unfurling of the electoral map and seeing Carter keep hold of some of his Southern coalition is great to witness. I started giggling a little at that, couldn't help myself. The wait...
  11. When you Wish Upon a Frog (Book II of the Jim Henson at Disney saga)

    Be lying if I said that Farley surviving wasn't great stuff! Poor Jim. It's a fascinating decision to keep Lillian alive for the time being, hope she'll make it to her 100th birthday at the very least! And all this discussion is sounding very, very ominous.
  12. When you Wish Upon a Frog (Book II of the Jim Henson at Disney saga)

    Definitely very interesting! Sounds like it would be a lot of fun to see!
  13. When you Wish Upon a Frog (Book II of the Jim Henson at Disney saga)

    Holy shit.... What the fuck did Silas Carson ever do to have to endure THIS!? As a proud and loud Carsoniac (There are literally tens of us), his agent should pay him double for having to sit through the world's most awkward breakup. (I hope it's clear that this is in fun, I enjoyed reading...
  14. When you Wish Upon a Frog (Book II of the Jim Henson at Disney saga)

    It's probably just the atmosphere of my own house at the moment but reading this got me teary eyed for whatever reason. Good shit. On the (somewhat) positive side, it would appear that this attack in particular is a one off instance given it being lumped in with the (still tragic but) somewhat...
  15. When you Wish Upon a Frog (Book II of the Jim Henson at Disney saga)

    Gutting to hear about Burstein dying. I suppose even with early conversations about equality, there always has to be a price to pay. Wonder who'll take over from her, and whether it's just a co-incidence that you cut the update off before naming her successor. Disneyland is really shocking to...
  16. Bicentennial Man: Ford '76 and Beyond

    Interesting! Definitely curious to see how this pans out, Carey worrying the Saudis is interesting stuff politically wise! I suppose the million dollar question is what does "Full and total support on the question of Northern Ireland" actually fucking mean in this context. Sans Mountbatten's...
  17. The Gentleman in the Blue Box, A Doctor Who Timeline

    Yeah, this is absolutely a type of movie that flies by on visuals and charismatic actors, And of course, the write-up is (in-universe) being done by someone who is a lot more critical of the stuff than your average audience member would be. Though I'd admit I'd be that twelve year old who'd get...
  18. The Gentleman in the Blue Box, A Doctor Who Timeline

    Honestly this line alone convinced me that you'd captured the spirit of the Cushing films. This got a good laugh out of me. Christopher Lee as 'The Master'? One could only dream! You definitely know your sixties sci-fi, this feels right out of this era for all it's pros and cons!
  19. The Gentleman in the Blue Box, A Doctor Who Timeline

    Hi there! Uh, so I've just reached the end of the chapter of the first movie, though I intend to finish the rest, but I do want to just jot down a quick note here to say that I am REALLY enjoying this so far! I had the great joy of going to see the Cushing films in the cinema this year, with my...
  20. "To Introduce our Guest Star, that's What I'm Here to Do..." The Hensonverse Fan Contribution Thread

    Ha! Fascinating to hear! It was bought for me a few years back thanks to my appreciation of Miyazaki, and it's become something of a comfort series to watch ever since. And yeah, Moriarty's a hoot, not surprised he was a big hit in other languages. The English dub's Hamilton Camp did an...
