    Would BEE MOVIE essentially be Jerry Seinfeld's ROVER DANGERFIELD?

    I mean, where ROVER DANGERFIELD was obviously a vanity project for Rodney basically depicting him as an animated dog, BEE MOVIE is pretty much the same thing: a vanity project for Jerry Seinfeld depicting him as a CGI bee.

    I fully agree with you. All this "Problem With Apu" business has me bugging me a lot too. There are plenty of Indian viewers out there who think Apu is awesome, you can't just forget about them.

    That's part of the reason why I like Family Guy so much, it's one of the few things on television in 2018 that isn't afraid to say politically incorrect things. The writers of that show aren't afraid to touch upon certain topics just because others may find it offensive. I dare you to think of one sensitive subject matter the show hasn't joked around about at least once during it's long run. Unfortunately however, stuff like that is becoming rarer and rarer as time goes on.

    Yeah, I'm pretty much the same way. My sense of humor is downright twisted most of the time, I don't get offended when people make fun of groups that I'm apart of whether it be Christians, people with Asperger's, Americans, white people, people from the country, teenagers, millennials, nerds, cat lovers, country music fans, homeschoolers, environmentalists, gamers, any of the fandoms I'm a part of, etc.

    But do NOT under any circumstances, make fun of my waifu Giggles. I dare you!
    Now that on the other hand is going too far. I don't really care, make fun if her you want. I'm just kidding btw. She's a chipmunk without a tail, that biological error in of itself deserves to be mocked lol.

    Neither is Coco, Jerry. And even if she was, she wouldn't want anything to do with a salty white guy like you! :p

    Me in 2018 is pretty much a completely different person than me a couple years ago. Think about it:

    -I'm no longer extremely religious. I'm still a Christian but now I consider my self more "spiritual" than anything else meaning that I'm not completely obsessed with my faith like I once was and would be opened to learning new ideas and philosophies if I ever felt the need to.

    -I don't make videos anymore. I still make some of those animated Animutation videos but I've basically retired my original YouTube characters like Zed Buckmaster, Ching-Ching, Richie Cinnamon, etc. indefinitely now. By the way even if I do decide to reboot my videos, I'm not going to bring back the Ching-Ching character now that I realize that the term "ching-chong" can be used a derogatory slur for Asian people. Ching-Ching is literally only one letter off from that word.

    -While Teen Titans Go used to be my all time favorite series, I now agree with basically everyone else that the show needs to end. I just can't find any humor in the word waffles being repeated over and over again or an episode that within 3 seconds starts with a juvenile musical number called "The Pee-Pee Dance".

    -I don't cuss or make crude jokes anymore. Well, I do occasionally in real life but I now try to leave those types of things off this site.

    -Despite the fact that I used to be a diehard fanatic of it, I now consider Robot Chicken to be one of the worst shows of all time.

    -I still watch Family Guy every couple of months or so, but I'm about as far from as obsessed with the show as it gets (if you all remember, I used to be obsessed with Family Guy).

    -I am not depressed like I formerly was. From 2015-2017, I was battling a severe case of depression that has now been destroyed in favor of happiness and optimistic hope for the future thanks to support from my loving family.

    -I am not completely girl crazy anymore. My only cartoon crush is on Giggles whereas I used to have close to 100 different crushes at the same time.

    -Remember how I used to say that the Alice Cooper episode was my least favorite Muppet Show episode of all time because of how it scared me when I was a kid? Well, now I've met Alice in person at a Comic-Con. He's actually a nice guy and I now feel kinda bad for constantly trashing on him in the past.

    -I don't have only one genre of music in indulge in anymore. I used to like almost exclusively country music alone but now I often branch out and listen to things like rock, pop, rap, '80s pop music, and so on all the time.

    -The large majority of my favorites TV shows listed in the "Favorite Non-Henson TV Shows" thread were cartoons a couple years back. Now I like majority live action and cartoons are a minority on the list of my favorite shows currently.

    -Overall, I now prefer sci-fi/fantasy/horror/superhero-type stuff over comedy for the most part.

    -Whenever I was asked who my favorite singer is in 2016-2017, my answer was always the same:John Mellencamp. Now I think it's probably Kid Rock (I don't agree with his political views at all but I'm a serious fan of his music, both the original rap songs and also the later country/rock-type stuff he puts out now)

    I was seriously shocked when I sat back and thought of how much I've grown as a person within two years. From simple opinions about pop culture to extremely important things like getting over the struggles of depression that once had it's claws dug deep into me, I really do feel amazed about how much my attitude towards most everything in life has changed for the better in such a seemingly short timespan.

    I've made alot of changes in my life this year.

    The main reason it took me forever to change my personality for the better and mature is because of the fact that I have a moderate case of Asperger's Syndrome.

    As many of you already know, people with Asperger's often have an aversion to change of all kinds and I was no exception. I stuck to the same schedule every day, watched the same few shows, listened to the same few bands, never even opened my mind to trying out any new hobbies or lifestyles, and was so insistent on keeping every day the same.

    But as I grew older and thought more about it, I realized that change is beneficial for everyone in life. So this year in particular, I've decided to try the hardest to become a better person I've ever tried in my entire life. Because now that I'm 19-years-old, it's the perfect time to start thinking about those things.

    I'm not a kid anymore but at the same time, I'm not quite a full grown adult either. I'm right there in between childhood and early adulthood so I figured if there's anytime to start thinking more and more about my future it would be this year.

    As devastated as I saw last year when singer Troy Gentry passed away, the last song he ever wrote was one of the things that truly inspired me to change the way I am this year. Troy himself may be gone but through his final song, his words have helped motivate me to never give up, always be opened to new ideas, and as the song title says become a better me:

    I'll never be completely perfect but that's okay because nobody is. All human beings have their own flaws and I'm no exception. I'm still not sure where I want to see myself in 10 or even 5 years right now, but no matter what road the crazy journey that is life takes me down I'm spending a lot of my time preparing for the development of all the necessary skills to deal with whatever life decides to throw at me.

    Personally, I still want to have a child side to me even at the age of 50.

    I would hate to be that Mr. Serious guy with no sense of humor all the time.

    Me too. I would like to remain child-like but not childish if that makes any sense.

    I was honestly thinking of those moments when you write something to someone, but then half way through you're just like "you know what? It's not worth it." And then you just end up deleting everything.

    Really says alot right there, doesn't it?

    Ever since I made this post the other day, I've actually been thinking about a certain aspect of my story:


    So, here's what I've been thinking . . . the girl in-question who I had fallen in love with is a really hard-core, pious, holier-than-thou, Bible-thumping variety of Christian. Looking over those social media memes and posts from men who said they literally stalked their future wives because they felt God picked them out for them, and said future wives eventually complying because it was God's will . . . I must confess, part of me wonders if the girl's reaction and response would have been different if, when I professed my love for her, I went as far as telling her she was the one God chose for me?

    I mean, I'm glad I didn't - yeah, at the time, I did believe it to be God's will . . . but since when do any of us know what God intend for us? Not to mention, I don't think I would have felt comfortable trying to forcefully infer a spiritual connection into the situation, when, as it turns out, there wasn't one.

    Still, hindsight is 20-20, and again, just reading over some of those social media posts, and thinking about my own experience, I just can't help but wonder what the outcome would have been if I did go that route and told her she was the one God intended for me. . . .

    I still have a little bit of a soft spot for her, if only because we've been friends for over a decade, and I actually have seen her go through multiple soured relationships with losers who basically wanted her for one thing . . . but seeing how Trump has brought her true racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, bigoted colors, my feelings for her are considerably decreased.

    The TV show "Cyberchase" is turning more into an environment show than a Math show. Back when the show started in 2002 it was heavy on Mathematics. Now the show is starting to shy away from it.

    Just about any show that's been on a little too long begins shifting away from its original main theme/premise/focus/what have you, and veering off into different directions.
