  2. Yeah, I went ahead and bought my tickets last night. No need to spoil any more of the flick before opening day.

    Saw my first poster for the movie today in Barcelona. It definitely is weird seeing Sonic in the mainstream again, something I can’t say I’ve seen in 20ish years

    They cleverly leave Sonic's feet off screen for this

    You know, when I posted that Sonic licorice analogy, I assumed I'd get the usual boilerplate pile-on. "I don't know what licorice is", "You're just a hater", "the analogy is inaccurate", "I didn't bother actually reading it". Certainly no one bothered to give a thoughtful response as to why they reached that conclusion, but this is the usual case I have slowly come to realize. I'm not going to fight for reason or understanding anymore, I'll just withdraw, or so I had told myself... But then...

    What I did not expect was to be BANNED for a week.

    Let me be clear about something... While I alluded to a racist term for a candy which was no longer in use, I literally censored the word. I also clearly used the phrase in a disparaging manner which reflected it's negative social connotation. I literally held the phrase up (in censored form) as an illustrative tool BECAUSE it isn't socially acceptable. Yet, the reason I received for the ban was, ~"no one's used this term since the 80s so you're banned".

    It's one thing write on these forums and get beat down every time because no one takes an honest effort to comprehend what you write, but to receive a ban for the same reason is an even further injury.

    For some contrast, I recall drawing to the admins attention that a popular member was calling other members a derogatory term for homosexual (obviously I can’t allude to the word any further or I’ll get banned for advocating it) in their signature, and the response I received was basically, oh that’s just how he expresses himself…


    Well mission accomplished, I won't ever attempt to share a thought again, and likely I’ll be banned for pointing out the irony and hypocrisy anyway.
     
  6. A week ban is a small slap on the hand, so it's best to let it go.
    No matter what the intention was, it can be easily misconstrued. You're lucky it wasn't permanent.

    None of that is enough when you're using a disparaging term born from racial prejudice. You really, really should've thought that one through more and not used it at all.

    This bothers me too, but talking about it more here would drag this thread further off-topic.

    I'll say that I understood it was a reference to a historical use of the term, and while the comparison didn't make a lick of sense to me, I was surprised by the suspension. If someone wants to be deliberately insensitive, they wouldn't censor the word.

    For what it's worth, I read your entire post, and understood the initial analogy. The last part however, genuinely took me off guard (as I had never heard of the brand), and I actually wanted clarification on what you meant before I responded. I gave you the benefit of the doubt before responding angrily, thinking I missed something.

    But did it honestly never cross your mind that comparing the current state of affairs of Sonic to an overtly racist candy brand could unintentionally offend people? Especially when the current conversation had to do with the new rap song for the movie, featuring black artists? Get real.

    If your entire analogy hinges on you being able to use a highly inappropriate word to stick the landing, use a different fucking analogy. That's the last I'll say on it and the last I want to hear about it.

    Getting back on topic a bit, Jim Carrey was on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and they talked Sonic a little, including an extended cut of the "I'm in charge" scene from the original trailer. Jump to 4:15 if you want to get straight to the Sonic stuff.

    It's just a fun little song for the kiddies to enjoy about everybody's favourite hedgehog. Why, have you got something against that?

    So apparently this cover of Endless Possibilities is on the Sonic movie soundtrack. Pretty neat.
