Offhand, I would suggest that it's probably not a good idea to pay too much attention to any post of mine in which I mention Gorilla Grodd. And I say that despite being absolutely convinced that Powers Boothe did a great job with the voice during that whole arc where Grodd and Lex Luthor (voiced by Clancy Brown) wrestle over control of the Legion of Doom during season five.

Okay, "attack?" I dunno.

I believe that the policies you advocate more or less reduce the DBMS to a dumb record-store. I've wasted a lot of my life explaining why, so no redux tonight.

Hey, that Justice League show is awesome for trivia, though. Clancy Brown, for example. The voice of Lex Luthor. Did you know he also does the voice for Mr. Krabs on Spongebob AND he played Rawhide in "Buckaroo Banzai" AND was the villian in "Highlander." Isn't that hilarious? Wasn't the evil Kurgan in Highlander awesome? Then we have this weird episode in which the Flash and Lex Luthor end up changing bodies. On the Justice League, Flash is voiced by Michael Rosenbaum, who of course everyone knows plays Lex Luthor on Smallville. So once they changed bodies, you have Michael Rosenbaum playing ... Lex Luthor on Justice League! I thought it was an amusing joke. And then also you have Carl Lumbly, who plays the Martian Manhunter on Justice League, and he was ALSO in Buckaroo Banzai. He was one of the Johns. John Parker I think. So there's two people who voice major characters in Justice League who were in Buckaroo Banzai.

This one time, I'm in the editing booth, (the director had asked me over for some some advice on some effects shots) and the director's cell phone rings, and he says he has to take the call and he pops up and he's gone for five minutes or so. When he comes back, he tells me about the call. He says something like, you maybe don't know who this is, but I just talked with Carl Lumbly. And I said Carl Lumbly! Of course I know who Carl Lumbly is. I just watched him beat the crap out of Edward James Olmos a couple of weeks ago. You see, Lumbly had been the guest star in an episode of BattleStar Galactica. He played a pilot who had been lost to the Cylons many years before, and somehow escapes. He got in a huge fight with Adama. His character's name was ... M something. He was a lieutenant. M? I can't remember. Novacek! That was it: lieutenant Novacek. Where did that "M" come from? What's wrong with my memory?
