Seriously though, not everybody reads/watches the same stuff, I would say it's safe to assume 99% of Compendiumites aren't intimately familiar with anything but Chrono stuff, Dr Who (that's still a stretch), and Sherlock (a waaaay bigger stretch, there's not even time travel). That's not to say that anyone's stupid, but you can't assume we just know.

Star Trek is probably on that list too, although that's the only thing on the list I would never catch any references from.

You and Katie are literally the only two people I know of who recognize that. In my experience, NOBODY knows who "John Mandrake" is, period.
Well, now you do.  :lol:

But you forgot Kodokami; while he didn't notice the picture instantly, he still loves the series.  :P

Lest you be called a hipster!  :twisted:
But I am a hipster! Didn't you know? When Tushantin wears/reads/watches/eats something, it becomes a fad!

The title "hipster" isn't necessarily something to be proud of, btw...  Most people find them incredibly annoying.  9 times out of 10 when someone calls another person a hipster, it's an insult.

Edit:  I'm not saying Bekkler's insulting you, just that in general the term "hipster" is an insult.

XD I know. Which is why I took it light-heartedly. The term doesn't really bother me.

Although, even if I were serious, by "hipster" I don't mean that I alienate myself or do annoying stuff that other hipsters do. Hell, no! What I meant was that I'm hip, as in I try to keep myself updated, discover the unknown and be a pioneer of stuff of all things. And if I approve of something, others try em too. ^^

I just think hipster is a funny insult because it covers such a broad range of traits that everybody can be called one, given the context.
:lol:

It's not like a racial slur, insulting intelligence, or sexual orientation comment. So, all in good fun.

Are you going to call the pre-floating-Zeal non-magic-users Hipsters instead of Earthbound?

It would make a lot of sense.

Haha! Nice! Maybe the cavemen/women.

"Before it was cool." (the planet)

But think about this:

Magus: Goth/Emo
Magil: David Bowie Fan
Guile: Adult who is legitimately into J Pop
Alt-Janus: Hipster

Speaking of David Bowie, I find him to be the king of hipsters. It's been, for quite a long time, that if David Bowie does it, it's officially become cool.

I didn't recognize the image only because I hadn't read the text behind it. John Mandrake is a dead giveaway for anyone familiar with the series. As a series with no official art other than the cover art, I would be hard pressed to find a connection. But yeah, I still love it. The Amulet of Samarkand was one of the first books I really fell in love with.

Back on topic: Robo is in second place! :lol:

Yes. Yes. Exactly.

Wait a minute. ALFador? There needs to be a horse now named Gluefactoryador. By that logic.
