Apparently, making photos appear on the same line is far beyond my meager skills

*edited* because I made a list, then forgot to say what the list was of.  Oops.

5 ways in which Community and Adventure Time are very similar:

1.  Fairly generic starting premise
Mix of students attend college:

Boy and animal go on adventures:

2.  Self-conscious play with genres

3.  A large cast of tertiary characters
...and I couldn't find a good image of the Community tertiary members all lined up.  Life's hell when you don't have your own photoshop.  Just... imagine a collage of Leonard, Fat Neil, Garrett, the Dean, Chang, Starburns, Rich, Magnitude, Vicki, the Greendale Human Being, Officer Cackowski, Jerry, and Annie's Boobs.  There.  Doesn't it look nice, all shimmering in your head?  What?  You don't know who any of these people are?  Well, you've got google.  Get to it.

4.  Constant stream of pop culture references and non-sequitors

Shirley: I've seen enough episodes of Friends to know that co-habitation leads to sex, drugs, and something Parade magazine calls "Schwimmer fatigue."

Evil Abed: You're VH1, Robocop 2 and Back to the Future 3. You're the center slice of a square cheese pizza. Actually, that sounds delicious. I'm the center slice of a square cheese pizza. You're Jim Belushi.

Troy: Me and Abed have an agreement. If one of us dies, we stage it to look like a suicide caused by the unjust cancellation of Firefly. We're gonna get that show back on the air buddy!


And what we're all here for:

5.  Extreme male bonding


And of course:

And what have we learned from this?  Well, I could have written a few paragraphs on why the shows were similar, and spent have the time for a result twice as professional and half the effort. It is hard to make pictures look effortless and good, even when you aren't using pictures you made yourself.
Later days.
