In a similar vein to the question about Back to the Future 2, how do you feel about movies where, via the magic of makeup, Eddie Murphy plays something like half the cast?
Well, I haven't seen most of those Eddie Murphy movies where he does that, so it's not really fair for me to comment. A lot depends on tone. But it seems to me that there's a certain amount of winking at the audience implied at the very least. A certain complicity.

Sure they can! Not having a ring or pinkie talon (consensus differs as to which gargs don't have) doesn't mean you don't have a middle talon, and thus, still have the ability to flip people the bird. (Yes Greg, we have sat around and debated this)
Greg writes: "Reboot is fun."
Hmm, of course, it'll be in reruns by the time you see this, but has anybody told you about the 4th season starting on Cartoon Network this year?
Nope. Of course, I haven't seen many episodes total. Just a handful. But I enjoyed what I saw, especially the X-Files parody episode.
Greg writes: "I read the entire L.A. Times Comic section everyday -- even the ones I hate -- out of habit and compulsion."
That sounds familiar. It's taken me years just to stop reading The Family Circus. But what the heck is Get Fuzzy? (Obviously it's a comic strip, albeit not one syndicated in my area) What's it about?
Next step, get Greg hooked on webcomics...
It's about a guy named Rob and his two pets, a sweet dog named Satchel and a semi-psychotic cat named Bucky. Animals talk in the "Get Fuzzy" world, though otherwise the human pet dynamic is pretty much what you'd expect.
The strip is often laugh-out-loud funny.
Greg writes: "Dead Again. Is that the Branaugh/Thompson movie?"
Yep. It also has Derek Jacobi, Andy Garcia, and an uncredited Robin Williams. Nifty little bit of film noir. Also interesting in being the only Branaugh/Thompson project I can think of that's not written by The Bard. I recommend it highly.
I've seen it. Back when it first came out.
you said that eventually the Gargoyles would attend night classes at colleges. would high schools or younger hold night courses for young gargoyles, or would they be generally homeschooled? and how would the schools adapt for the difference in aging rate?
I won't pretend I've thought out all these details. Any change would be gradual at best. Homeschooling would predominate at first, certainly. Age would fundamentally have little to do with aptitude, I would think. But that might be controversial. It would be fun to explore, given the opportunity.
I want to join a Gargoyle mush do you know where i can go to hook up? Who so i talk to about making a character etc?
What's a Gargoyle mush?
Tell me something interesting about gargoyles! (insert smart-ass response)
Let me guess. On October 20th, 2001, you were procrastinating or killing time, right? And decided to kill it here.
You mentioned having seen one episode of "X-Men: Evolution". Just out of curiosity, which one was it, and what did you think of it?
That was a while ago now. It's very vague in my memory. There was a lot of back and forth with Quicksilver -- who winds up in charge of the bad guys, I believe.
There was an attempt by the bad guys to break into a prison transport truck. Rogue and Sprite (Shadowcat?), I believe, try to stop it. The humans have an opportunity at the end to attack the heroines, but one of the humans recognizes the fact that Rogue and Sprite were trying to help.
Or something like that.
It didn't really stick in my head too well.
I'm also a bit vague on the set-up. The kids go to normal school and mutant school?
Anyway, there's a lot to recommend, but the truth is I burnt out on X-titles a long time ago.
I'm sorry to disturb you, Mr. Wiseman, but what I meant to ask was, how many floors does the Eyrie Building have?
I'm curious because my friend, Andy Morrison, wanted to make certain he had the right number in his tale about the Eyrie Building.
Thank you for your precious time. I can imagine that these questions are pestilential, but some good does come from answering them, I promise you.
I'm afraid I don't know the answer.
And I wouldn't use the word "pestilential" to refer to these questions. Even if that was a word.
