Happy Hug A Giant Day
Posted on July 21, 2015 by Tim
|I'll be you didn't know there was such a thing as “Hug A Giant Day”, did you? Well, if you hang out at DeviantART you might have run across it 'cause it's something they do. And Spaceman130 did this pic in celebration of same, as if Fry didn't have his hands full with a normal sized Leela. |
Later that same year ....

|Surprise! Bet you all thought I'd fallen off the face of the planet, eh? Well, that Real Life™ stuff HAS been kicking my shiny metal the last couple of months but I finally found the time and gumption to put some stuff up. So leading off is a new illustrated Fan Fiction from Gulliver63. It's called Give Me Steam and it's (so far as I know) the first Futurama Steampunk story. In it we find out what happens when Leela ends up in the Steamverse and becomes the pilot of the company's delivery air ship. Gulliver did a lot of research on language, and having in his past more than a few hours of flight time in his log you can bet the flight stats are spot on too. |
My good friend Dingsda was in Holland Michigan recently when he spotted this familiar face outside a smoke shop. If you really want to know exectly where you'll have to check out the other photo in Fan's Photos.
You may have heard that the USofA is considering putting a womans likeness on it's ten dollar bill, so kaspired has come up with four (unofficial) suggestions. It's pretty obvious which one would be our favorite although he suspects that, sadly, one of the others might be selected first.
And bouncing back to the Fan's Photos section again, DSS wrote to say that he met Maurice LaMarche himself at Comic Con! DSS says “He was really cool to mingle with and he even liked my impressions of Kif’s sighing and of Lrrr’s over-the-top voice.” And he got the image of Kiff autographed.

|Holy deluge, Delivery-Boy Man, we've got a full cargo hold all of a sudden. I actually had to drag my lazy behind over to the computer and do somethin'. I'm not used to this kind of intense activity any more, but here's three new things and, for a change, there's more in queue. It's like it's spring and all of the Futurama Fans just woke up from hibernation. So let's see if I remember how this all works. Ah, OK, first up, two new Fan Arts - this first one is from Ralf Stumpf and is the 'rama crew playing at being the Jetsons. |
Spaceman130 sends this tastefully done nude of a very pregnant Kif Kroker reposing against a tree on Amphibios 9. The thumbnail might be a little hard to see so go look at the full sized version.
And to follow up here's a spot of new Fan Fiction. Dwayne Anderson sends part 13 of his fic Space Age Doofus. Never underestimate the power of a moron!
What if ... things were busier around here?
Posted on May 5, 2015 by Tim
|An, remember the good olde days when we got enough stuff that I was chained to my computer doing updates practically every day? Sadly, things are kinda quiet these days but occasionally the dedicated fan still shows up with a morsel. Today is one such. Spaceman130 dropped off this new Comic Transcript. It's issue #74 entitled What the What If? in which Fry and Bender blow up the What If machine, releasing it's pent up what if energy and turning the greater New New York area into various alternate reality versions of itself. Sounds like a good plot for a bad Fan Fiction, doesn't it? |
Pumped up kicks?

|Want your very own Planet Express high tops? Well, now you can have them, maybe. Hammer087, whom we haven't heard from in quite a while (but I do hear from occasionally since we only live a few miles apart and run into each other occasionally) saw this on Facebook and brought it to my attention. Presumably it's current, he seemed to think so and I can't tell any different, so check it out and let us know if you actually score a pair. |
OK, got a couple of new Fan Fictions here from Hailey Sands. The first one is Wrath of Jeremy. Who is Jeremy you might ask? Good question. The über-fans will recall that he was a middle school bully mentioned by Fry in Bender's Game and this story explores that very question when Fry fails a urine test and believes that someone has it out for him. Hailey's next fic is Open for Business in which the PE ship has died and is unrepairable. As a replacement, Bender gets a space-tank, which PE can ill afford to operate. Meanwhile, a rainstorm soaks New New York and Fry takes a job with a new megastore that's opened. What's the connection you wonder? You'll have to read to find out.
Server glitches and other fun stuff
Posted on March 29, 2015 by Tim
|Darn computers. So a couple of weeks ago we had a little server glitch that took the Message Board off line for the better part of a day and because of some lingering fallout of that my updater wasn't working after that. Oh, it would cheerfully let me compose the whole update, and then error out when I tried to submit it. Of course, this happened right about the time we belatedly discovered that Billy West was appearing at the Indy Comic Con that weekend, but could I get a notice up? Noooo. Oh well, that's the way it goes in this biz sometimes. On happier notes, on to a couple of things that people have been very patiently waiting for.|
First up is this Fan Art by Spaceman130. It's Bender as a berzerker from Quake II. That seems about right for Bender, don't ya think?
Ever hear of a guy named Frank Frazetta? Neither had I, and no, he's not the contributor here, he's the inspiration. These drawings, done in Frank Frazetta style, are the result of a collaboration between kaspired and Gulliver63. Based on some prior art that Gulliver did, kaspired did the pencil sketch and each did a colerized version. I'll let you guess which is whose (hint: which one has the Amy fetish and which the Morgan Proctor fetish? ).
Lived Long and Prospered
Posted on February 27, 2015 by Graham
|Sad news today. I've just heard about the death of Leonard Nimoy at the age of 83, a name who'll forever be on the lips of any science fiction fan and beyond. His most iconic role was that of Mr Spock from the original series of Star Trek, as well as the films. That's what he'll mostly be remembered for by most. However, he was in a few other roles, which got overshadowed, like playing Dr Kibner in the 1978 remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, a remake that certainly doesn't embarrass the original (improves it, in my view), as well as some singing about hobbits and whatnot. However, he was also in Futurama, having a role in the first episode, Space Pilot 3000, as well as the parody of Star Trek episode, Where No Fan Has Gone Before. So, I'd like to express this site's sorrow for the loss of such an iconic actor who has given us so many memories that'll endure. May he rest in peace.|

|It seems like I should be saving this for a holiday of some kind but we don't really have any coming up soon so I'm just gonna toss this out there. It's (obviously) Zoidberg Jesus nailed to the cross. It's new Fan Art by Spaceman130.|
Over in the Fan Fiction section part 12 of Dwayne Anderson's Space Ace Doofus is up. Catch up on Fry's AU adventures as he tries to level up in a popular new video game after getting his wires crossed with one of the Professor's malfunctioning new inventions.
It's raining vampires
Posted on February 9, 2015 by Tim
|Wow, almost three weeks without an update. It's like 2005 all over again when Graham was threatening to shoot all of us with his crossbow of doom. It has been pretty quiet here in the boiler room of the Madhouse, only one thing's been slipped through the mail slot and through a combination of Real Life™ and sheer laziness it's taken me a “few days” to even get that done, so maybe it's a good thing it's kind of quiet right now. Or not. Anyway, got one tasty new Fan Fiction here. It's from Spaceman130 and it's called Vengeance is Called Upon Thee. As with his previous works, this one was inspired by the PlayStation 3 game Vampire Rain: Altered Species. Each one to be based on an individual mission and each mission ends with a cliffhanger. In this one Fry, Leela, and Hermes go on a mission to terminate James Smith, the walker who killed Leela's mother in Falling Rain, Spilling Blood (his first fic). However, James turns out to be nearly invincible. Can the team put an end to James's reign of terror? Or will James have the last laugh? |
Did someone say cookie dough ice cream?
Posted on January 20, 2015 by Tim
|Surprise, still here! Insert standard excuse #37 here. So let's lead off tonight with a combination of Fan Art and Fan Fiction. Bet you didn't guess that we have another Gulliver63 illustrated fic! This one is titled Tweak II: The Mutant Spring. It is, obviously, a sequel to a prior story by the same name. In this one the most dangerous woman on Earth finds herself exiled to a planet full of mutants. The Planet Express gang also find themselves on this same planet, caught up in a political upheaval between "normal mutants" and psionics. That ought to be fun. Someone grab some cookie dough ice cream and spoons and lets watch. |
And for more reading fun, Futuregirl223 has not one but two more parts to her Fan Fiction called Oh My!. These are, respectively, part 3 and part 4. Read on as someone finally tames the Zapper (maybe). And that someone might just be related to Fry.
