The good, the bad, and the broken. Also new buddies

|Well, for those of you that tried to get onto FMMB (aka our Message Board) today, you probably noticed it was broken, returning as it did a cryptic and not terribly informative error message. The good news is it's fixed now. Huzzah to Graham to the rescue. Sorry to everyone who couldn't get their FMMB fix for the last 12 hours, I had the DT's too. |
Another bit of brokeness that's still lurking about - since it's inception, FM/TLZ's URL has been www.futurama-madhouse.com.ar. Much more recently, we picked up www.futurama-madhouse.com and www.futurama-madhouse.net. Well, bad news everybody, for reasons I won't go into (mostly 'cause I don't really know what the whole story is) the futurama-madhouse.com.ar domain has not been renewed and no longer gets you to FM/TLZ. This breaks a few things. Like every link to us on every other website out there (I've been notifying them as I find them, several have already been fixed ) but more importantly, some of our own internal stuff still points there. Wallpapers and Framegrabs are known victims. We're searching the South American jungles for Leandro in hopes that he can fix some of it. Meanwhile, if you find something else that doesn't work, please let us know.
Now the we've got the bad and the broken out of the way, let's get back to the good stuff. At the bottom of every page on this site is the Buddies section where other fan sites that have passed our rigorous selection standards (eg they could figure out how to e-mail us and ask ) get links. And language is no barrier, so if you can read Hebrew, or even if you can't, please welcome futurama-il.tk which bills itself as “The Futurama fun site in Hebrew” (I'm sure it looses a little in translation ).
And lasly but far from leastly is a new Illustrated Fan Fiction by Gulliver63. It's a futuristic take on an old idea 'cause it was inspired by a 1955 Asimov story called Dreaming is a Private Thing. The world of tomorrow version is titled Dream Jumpers and it explores what happens when the Professor attempts to explore people's dreams in his research. His biggest problem is that Mom wants to steal his work for her own evil plans. In the midst of all this we find that Fry has a special gift no one knew about. Will Fry be able to escape the clutches of the evil Mom? And will Mom show everyone just how venomous she really is? Did I mention that it's Illustrated?
lampoons for everyone

|In a send up of almost everything here's some new pages to Inquisitor Hein's Fan Comic 30. In a send up of unemployed Space Nazis, Mutant Turtles, rabid news reporters, the Futurama medical community, and a whole bunch of other legions of darkness, the new stuff starts on Page 47. |
And if that isn't enough, over in the Fan Fiction arena Spaceman130 builds on his Vampire Rain inspired Falling Rain, Spilling Blood with two chapters of a continuation story called Breaking Comminucations in which Fry and his team are tasked with destroying an antenna to cut off communications between their enemies. However, Fry runs into some unexpected problems on the way there...

|The Simpsons-Futurama cross-over episode, Simpsorama, is scheduled to be broadcast on Fox on November 9. Per Simpsons EP Al Jean “The plot will revolve around bad boys Bender and Bart: Bender has to come back from the future to kill Bart because there’s something that Bart does now that makes the future really, really, really bad.“ |
In addition to John DiMaggio (buh), it looks like most of rest of the cast (i.e., Billy West, Katie Sagal, and Phil LeMarr) will be in the episode. Tess McNeil was also mentioned to be in the episode but since she's on the Simpsons it doesn't say what she'll be doing. The foregoing text lifted straight from Marloc's post on the Simpsorama thread on the Message Board since it was way easier for me that way.
