Defender of Color Coordination

     I've been watching a lot of the new Voltron on Netflix lately and, while I enjoy it, there's one little thing that gnaws at the very nerd fiber of my being! The team undergoes a slight change in roster and ends up playing a game of musical chairs with their lions. This is all well and good but what bugs me is that even though some members of the team get new lions, their uniform colors still coordinate with their old lions! You've got the Black Paladin wearing red, the Red Paladin wearing blue, and the Blue Paladin wearing... PINK?! What is that?!

     I realize that, realistically, the paladins would be too busy fighting the bad guys to tailor new costumes for themselves, but we're not talking about reality here! We're talking about a cartoon where giant robot lions fly around in outer space!

     No! I'm doing something about this! I, hereby, officially summon the POWER OF PHOTOSHOP! ROOOOAAAAAAAAaaaaaaarrrrrr.....

That roar was my photoshop skills.

My skills can roar.

Yabba Dabba Dudes

     There are plenty of things in pop culture that I claim to love, yet NEVER have anything to do with any more. The Flintstones fall into that group. I can't say why exactly. I enjoy partaking in a good Honeymooners ripoff as much as anybody, and yet, I can't remember the last time I actually watched a Flintstones episode.

     When I started typing this, I thought I had more of a point to make... but I guess not. I wonder what caused the extinction of the dinosaurs in the Flintstone-verse. I'm guessing it was some sort of labor dispute that went horribly wrong.
