In this arc of Cross Time Cafe, there's a reference I don't get. Cross Time Cafe is a group comic where a number of characters from different web comics are all together in an alternate universe and do things which don't affect their main continuity.
Anyway, this arc has them trying to sell CTC to Disney, who expresses no direct interest, but does hit them with a C&D because of a "mischievous little blue alien", apparently Sam Starfall.
What Disney character would be similar to Sam Starfall? I don't have a clue.

Man, talk about bait and switch.
And it's all the worse because he got really busy with work and it took five months for him to do about 8 strips before his reveal.
Start here. The girl with the black hair is Gilly, the "perky goth", who once upon a time was Matt's girl friend. Then she moved to London and for several years now she's only appeared once in a while. But as of this arc, she's apparently back again.

Over at Ace's, this week's gaming post begins with a couple of trailers for upcoming VR girlfriend games (or maybe just different development stages of a single game). GoGM says, "I refuse to believe that this is the same VR Japanese schoolgirl waifu sim I was promised last year" and links to the previous one.
The newer one is in English and features a beautiful blonde woman, likely in her early 20's. You're with her outdoors at a beach cottage.
The previous one is in Japanese and features a high school girl, likely age 16. You're with her in her bedroom.
Which neatly summarizes how they view the respective audiences, don't you think?

This is how I watched the race today. I tuned in about lap 35 (out of 70). A few comments:

...and he isn't even dead yet.
They're going to do a "Boba Fett" origin movie. Which is nuts; we already know where he came from, and we've seen him die.
The beloved character was primarily played by English actor Jeremy Bulloch in "The Empire Strikes Back” and "Return of the Jedi.”
"Beloved"? He's a villain, a dirty rotten scoundrel!
When they chose Jango Fett as the genetic source for all the clone storm troopers, part of his price was that they give him one to raise as his son, which he names Boba.
What kind of story can they tell about that?
I suppose they think they can pull this off. After all, the first sequel trilogy (eps 1-3) were about Darth Vader, but we'd already seen Darth Vader do a heel-face-turn just before he died heroically. But Boba Fett's death was a laugh-line. (The desert monster burped just after swallowing him.)
I guess all Lucas can do these days to comfort himself is count all his money...

There's a movie coming this summer called "Pixels". It's an enhancement of something that's shown up a lot of times before in small videos on YouTube, but it looks like they've done an excellent job of it, high budget. Let's hope the script is up to the job, and the acting rates.
It reminded me of a short piece I first saw something like 30 years ago as a filler on HBO called "Arcade Attack". (And let me just say right now that any guy who wears a pompadour deserves to get zapped by space aliens.)
UPDATE: It also reminds me of this.

This is really good. I have no idea where he found it, but it's perfect.
Those people were originally older than I was, and I look like that now. (I particularly like the comb-over. Which I don't have to do because I didn't go bald.)

Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda starring Robert Carradine.
UPDATE: Here's the trailer. The CGI is surprisingly good for a Roger Corman movie.
