Whhhhhaaaatttttt. What the actual what.


Gorillaz are making a comeback and I'm just losing all my babanas about it. I'm hoping that it's a music comeback and not just an animated one.

Gorillaz are in a space where they're both mascots and a band. Sort of interesting really.


Sometimes, mascots and support characters have a way of stealing the show. Even in Gorillaz, everyone has their favourite but I wonder if Noodle is most loved by fans even though Murdoc fancies himself band leader and show runner.

Then there is Missy Elliott who just stole the Superbowl show from Katywho? Perry. She's so fabulous but who is surprised that this happened? Psh. Other than the kids who have no clue who she is.

Other mascots/supporting cast members who might be stealing all the shows right now?

For Today's Suggested Topics:

  • Which support characters in video games just stole the whole thing for you and upstaged its main characters?
  • Your favourite mascot — video game or otherwise?
  • Share a song or four if you'd like. What have you been listening to lately, TAY? Are we all caught up on the great soundtrack of Transistor (which all of youse should be playing right now if you've got PS+)? In the mood for old favourites like "Psycho Killer" by the Talking Heads? Wondering why you haven't listened to Radiohead lately?
  • Or what you all really want to do: Talk about that snazzy new Persona 5 trailer if you still got lots to say.

As always, feel free to Talk Amongst Yourselves if ain't nobody got time for Getting UR Freak On. It is the Open Forum, after all. Don't forget that the IRC Channel is always around for you to carry out discussions as well. If you wanted to give an admin, author, and/or friend a shout: You can find them on the DirecTAYry.

Now if you'll excuse me... Going to listen to some Kimbra and rekindle my love with that girl.

While amusing myself by watching my latest favourite show stealer:


Oh, Shark. I adore you.
