So when I was a kid (about 2007-2010 I think is the time period.) I used to watch this show. All i remember is that there were pirates and I think they were in a video game. I also think it was an Australian show but I'm not sure. yeah... Any clues as to what it was called?

There was this Donald Duck short with him and Daisy where Donald is struck with something to his head that somehow gives him an amazing singing voice, but it also gives him amnesia, making him forget about Daisy and leaving her heartbroken. The rest of the short is about her trying to get Donald back somehow while he's getting famous, and it ends with her finally succeeding to drop something on his head while he's performing, reverting him back to normal (which causes him to be booed of the stage as his regular voice is of course, awful). I remember being really impressed with this short for its animation and mood. Anyone knows the name of it?

Ok, this may not be appropriate, but I've been wondering this for years now. There was this late night show that my dad would watch on cable when I was a kid. Some nights I would wake up and see some clips. Anyway, it was during mid to late 90s. It was more of an erotic TV series. I think it was about a group of people (girls and guys) who found some kind of magic rock/stone tablet or something and when they put their hands on it, their minds get transported to a random fantasy that leads to some kind of sexual encounter. I assumed it was a mental transport, because as soon as the fantasy was over they would instantly be back in the same room they were in with same clothing, etc. I think every episode would be about a different fantasy like really random. It would go from cleopatra/egyptian themed to jail cell/cop theme. It's driving me crazy that I can't find anything about it. If someone knows what I'm talking about it would be really awesome

So, the group of guys/girls who would sit around and become magically transported... that was a recurring frame story in more than one episode? Or that was something that only happened in one episode that you saw? How many episodes of this did you see?

I recall I witnessed a couple episodes, but just bits and pieces. I don't think they lasted very long, about 20-30 min? I remember the credits was like a black background and I think it was like and an drawing animation of a nude girl posing or dancing or whatever. I had a friend tell me they knew what I was talking about, but they didn't know the name of it either. They said their friend had recorded it on VHS. It came on at like the same time every night I just don't know what channel it was on.

So there was this weird show that was on T.V, maybe around 2000-2003. Not entirely sure. It was one of those 'in-between episodes' kinda show. Very short, maybe 2-3 minutes or something. It was also all CGI, and pretty weird lookin'. Basically, if I remember correctly, it had a couple big-headed characters with small bodies. They may have been part of a circus in a desert or something. The background was always very barren and white. I also believe they could open their heads as little compartments. I would REALLY like to know what this was, or at least a little picture from it. I've searched many things and can't find anything. Any help would be great!

This was one of those old kids' books from the 80s or 90s that my grandma bought for me at a library sale. I was reminded of it by Sweet Valley High since it is about a young girl who has a classmate named "Delight Wakefield". Delight has very long and pretty hair that main girl envies, and everyone loves Delight except main girl. Eventually the class performs a pageant about world cultures, using Delight's parents' various collectibles from around the world, and main girl is assigned to help Delight put a hat in her hair since of course she gets to wear a fancy costume. Instead main girl cuts off Delight's hair and feels very bad later on, and I think they end up friends at the end. I tried googling Delight Wakefield and can't find anything, and I can't remember main girl's name.

I'm pretty sure this was a movie, but all I remember is a cereal commercial they showed on TV within the movie. It had two boys complaining about breakfast time being boring or something like that, then a cartoon hippopotamus appeared, but instead of being all awed like children in real cereal commercials, these two freaked out and called for help and then their dad came and shot the hippo to death with a gun (I think it was quite gory, too).

I don´t remember anything else about the movie, btw. Any ideas?

I remember seeing this on TV one day when I was very young. I think it was an advertisement or network bumper as it was very short, but it might have just been part of a show. It involved a guy standing around what I believe was a dump or junkyard. The art style was very wiggly and reminiscent of Ed Edd n Eddy. There was a dog in the area as well, and he somehow got the dog mad enough to bite him on the foot. I believe the character had either a very long toenail or piece of dead skin hanging off their toe, as the dog managed to tear at their skin. And by that I mean the character was completely flayed. I don't remember this being in detail, there was just dark red color covering their body where skin should have been. There was a beat, before the character screamed and the camera zoomed out.

Was this real or some horrific dream I had? I'm thinking it was real since I remember it scaring me for quite some time.

It sounds like maybe it may have been something from O Canada, which was a late-night anthology showcase of adult cartoons from Canada (this was before [adult swim]); that squigglevision animation style is very prelevant in Canadian cartoons.

I'm not sure it was that. I tried looking it up and can't find anything. It had a much more concrete art style than what I saw from O Canada. I saw this in the late 90's/early 2000's.

Movie from The Nineties or the Turn of the Millennium, involving a lady report (I believe) who was somehow possessed or had some kind of supernatural power bestowed upon her (I think).

This involves a memory of a an episode of an anime I watched in Japan I'm 99% sure that I viewed sometime between 1996-2000. (It definitely did not occur before 1995 or 2001.) The scene involved some people who I remember who were friendly with one another hanging out in some sort of outdoor snowy environment. Then one guy takes a swig of a thermos, and there is some sort of brainwashing or transformation sequence where the hero (or one of the heroes, I think he was too tall to be a sidekick, and he definitely appeared to be male) suddenly stops acting normally and if I'm not crazy, he floated away. (That transformation sequence may or may not have involved a zoom in of human cells or DNA, it's all a bit fuzzy, but he looked mostly the same afterwards, perhaps a bit buffer and or with weird eyes?) Suddenly, a (probably already established) villain appears (possibly unveiling that he was actually the well-disguised old lady who offered him the thermos, I'm not sure if I'm remembering a character that didn't exist) and floats up and reveals to the stunned friends that the hero is now under his control. That's all I remember, so I don't remember if the hero was just pretending, or if not, if he came to his senses before the end of the episode. I was pretty young. If I had to take a wild guess, perhaps it was a Dragon Ball Z episode, but having never recalled watching a full episode knowingly, that's just a wild guess, and I don't think that the characters involved were any of the well known main characters that I know of, such as Frieza, Goku, Piccolo, or Vegeta, though I could be wrong and they could very well be one or more of the characters I mentioned, and the part of me that has held onto the memory of this scene insists that it was at least similar to some DBZ scenes I have seen (but again, I could be wrong.) I'm pretty sure it would have been on one of the standard kids (or at least animation channels) in Japan back then since I'm pretty sure we couldn't afford any super-deluxe channel package back then, and since I was in pre-school in one or more of those years, it would have been more likely to be during any "kid-friendly" hours (like right before or after school) but it could also likely be between those two times, or unlikely but still possible, outside of those typical times. I'm sorry I don't have much to go on besides a fuzzy memory, but hopefully the technical details might help narrow down the possibilities. If you have anything even as significant as a hunch, I'd really appreciate it if you let me know!

I am looking for an American tv series, a mini one I believe, possibly on the CW, maybe even 5 min videos, I can't remember. I know the videos were on YouTube at one point and it had it's own website, yet I can't remember the name of it, I know it came out a few years ago, possibly 2011, it was pretty popular.

The premise is a blonde teenaged girl (possibly collage) moves back to a town, where while jogging she finds a hidden house that's abandoned. The house it old and ruined on the inside, it has a balcony that overlooks the backyard and pool, I believe. Then somehow there's a party somewhere is the series at the house, I remember there being a huge pool that she sat down by. I'm pretty sure that she finds or makes this dress that she wears at the party. And (if I remember correctly) the pool had something off about it or that it was magical. I believe when the show had it's trailer, it showed her jumping or falling into the pool.

Eventually she meets this guy, who by the end of it I think he was a childhood friend of hers. There's magical events that happen during it, though it can't remember what exactly. If this rings any bells, please let me know! I've been going crazy trying to remember things about it, typing all kinds of gibberish into the google search engine.

It's a short story. I read it in the 1980s, but I think it dates back further, to when computers were a new thing.

It's a science fiction story set in a future where all records have been computerized. The protagonist is the victim of some small error (a false overdue notice from the library, something like that), and when they try to get it corrected, things get worse and worse until their entire life gets destroyed (and maybe they wind up dead?). And the whole time to people in charge of the computer system insist that of course it's more reliable than human record-keepers and never makes any mistakes.

I'm putting this under webcomic, but it was actually a manga. But for some reason manga wasn't an option, so since I read it online I figured webcomic was close enough.

I'm looking for a story, I think it was a short story so it might have been part of a collection, where kids who were left to die of exposure in feudal Japan are saved by the trees of a forest. The trees let the kids (or their spirits, or something like that) live inside them. There's a girl who meets one of these kids in the modern era and they fall in love, etc. And at the end of the story she's coming to visit him and she sees the forest on fire and thinks he's died. I don't remember whether he actually did or not, and I'd like to read it again to find out. But I can't remember its title, and I don't know any other way to find it. Just in case anyone else thinks of this, it's not Hotarubi no Mori e. I've read that too, possibly very close to when I read this one I'm looking for. They are very similar stories, so it's no wonder that stumbling across Hotarubi no Mori e again reminded me of this one, but I'm certain they were actually unrelated.

Another pesky old game! A computer game for Windows, early to mid 90s? It was on CD, not floppy disk.

It was about a kid trapped in a haunted house, with a huge weird clock that had 13 hours on it instead of twelve. You had 13 hours (not real time) to find 13 keys to escape.

The house itself was kind of a mixture of cartoony and spooky. There was a cast of monsters who would show up in rooms randomly. You had a bag full of items, and at the beginning of the game the monsters would be friendly and offer to trade, but as the game progressed it got darker and the house got more hostile, and even the friendly monsters would sometimes attack you. (You didn't die, but you could black out and lose an hour.)

There was a big mutant shark trapped in a cage, a two-headed guy who talked kind of like a used car salesman... At one point you could build Frankenstein's monster. There was also a ghost who had a split personality? Every time he showed up you only had a short amount of time to guess whether you'd gotten the good one or the evil one, because the evil one would curse you and steal items.

I'm looking for a 2d animated film I saw in 2008-2009. The movie might be slightly older than that.

1. The details of the main plot are fuzzy, but I think they involved collecting some sort of macguffins around the world. One of them was the "stone of courage" if I remember correctly

2. I remember one of the subplots with clarity; one of the characters was a werecat trying to undo his curse to turn back into a regular cat. In the ending he succeeds and leaves the group to join his pack again.

3. I also sort-of remember The Stinger; it was a girl/woman discovering somehing frozen in ice but the movie ends at that cliffhanger.

It broadcasted in Singapore's Okto channel just before or during National Day (8-9 August), but a quick search for a broadcast list or schedule archive didn't turn up any results.

Pop song from The Eighties or maybe early Nineties. Female singer. The refrain was something about how there will always be "something (or maybe someone, I forget) in the way". It is NOT Nirvana- Something In The Way if anyone was thinking that, was earlier.

Around 2004-2005, I remember seeing a sci-fi show on Canadian TV on two separate occasions. I may be conflating two different shows, but I'm quite sure they were two episodes of the same series.

The first one I remember has a guy who looks sort of like Rowan Atkinson walking down a street. He smells some flowers, then starts looking around suspiciously. He ducks into a corner, and when he comes out, he's somehow transformed into a spider with his head on it. A woman sees this and screams. In a later scene, a man is in a subway station. He transforms into a different man by sticking his finger up his nose and somehow pulling the new body out, while his old body gets sucked back in. This leads into a chase sequence on top of a train.

The second one I remember is more vague, but I remember two specific scenes: A woman holds a cage with a miniature T-rex inside, and a different woman spends the entirety of the show with a laptop somehow suspended at her chest level.

These were games I used to play at Chuck E Cheese's in the late 90's/early 2000's.
1. A wheel game. On the screen were two mice walking in front of two wheels. You'd spin the big wheel first, then the small wheel. If you wanted to take a risk, you could nudge the wheels using the "Nudge" button. I remember the text on screen saying "Spin the big wheel. Spin the small wheel. Nudge if you dare." One of the spaces you could land on was a piece of cheese, and if both wheels had the cheese, you'd win a ton of tickets. The only audio I could hear (because the Chuck E Cheese's I went to was very loud) was "SPIN the wheel!" The physical wheel you had to spin was multicolored and, I believe, small.
2. A game that was similar to a crane game, but you didn't grab any prizes with the crane, it was just for tickets. All I remember was, you had these metal discs with a blue outline, and you had to put them all in the center of the machine using a magnet that you would move around like you would with a crane. The only sounds I could hear were a voice saying "Mission control, we have..." and some static like the voice was coming through on a walkie-talkie.

Just to be certain, these aren't video games, right? It sounds like you're describing a coin-operated machine that doesn't necessarily have a video monitor. These will probably be difficult to find.

You should try www.arcade-museum.com. They have an extensive list of coin-operated machines. They also have an active forum, and might have a thread like this one where someone can help you.

A PS1 platformer made by Capcom. The main character is a chibi style human and I think the enemies were monsters (it wasn't part of the Mega Man series). It wasn't a side scroller, as the screen stayed static like the original Mario Bros. The cover art of the game (and I think the graphics themselves) was yellow and black. The release date had to be early 2000's at the latest. The title was in Japanese, but even after checking a list of Japanese PS1 games I couldn't find it. Any help appreciated.

Okay, so, I know VERRRRRY little about this manga, but apparently in recent years there's been a boxing or wrestling manga that either centers around female boxers/wrestlers or features prominent female characters who are boxers/wrestlers. And something that stuck out to me about this manga from the caps I've seen of it is that the female athletes are actually very apparent in their musculature. Like, there's no Muscles Are Meaningless at play here, the gals have Amazonian physiques. Does this ring any bells for anyone?

So there's this work, I think it's either a novel or video game. There's this race of underground monsters that leaves the surface world alone for the most part, but they're spreading and it's implied that at some point they'll come out and wreck the surface world. Thing is, this is really just a footnote in the actual plot. The creatures harass the main characters maybe once or twice on their way to dealing with the main story, and the threat of the underground creatures is never resolved. But I have no idea what work or franchise it is.

it may be worthwhile asking the cafe what they normally listen to. you could get a) yeah i know the song its <...> or b) its satellite station 'x' in which case they may have an online play list you can look up.

i've been in this situation too, where you're listening to something which strikes a cord (chord?). I think the occasions i've been luck on, they've had something i think was called DMX and the decoder box actually displays the name, artist and album of the song playing.

if this happens to you a lot, there are apps like Music ID and Shazam you put on your mobile device which are pretty good at identifying music playing by listening to it. and just like a camera its good to have an app handy which will record sound for later.

seriously, it may be worth a phonecall to the cafe. Most people would empathize with you.

I know that I'm a little late into the game, but is the song "The Mother We Share" by CHVRCHES?

Anything by Marina and the Diamonds?

The Mother We Share was already suggested, and that's not it.

As for Marina... She sounds a lot like what I remember, so much that I thought it was her for sure, but none of her songs seem to be the one. Oh well.

give us a link to whatever the Marina song is which "sounds a lot like". and i realize you mean her singing and not the actual tune. but if its a distinctive sound, it may ring some bells

Girls and Oh No! are probably among the closest, based on what little I remember of my mystery song.

OK so this is a long shot, but I want to see if anyone else has heard of this one, because it's bugging me! A computer game that came out sometime in the 90s that was based around labyrinths (as in mazes, not the David Bowie movie).

There were two modes: one where you tried to navigate a premade maze, and another mode where you could use components to design your own. The components included things like keys, pressure plates, and sliding doors to make the game more challenging. There were also different textures, so for instance there were mazes with regular stone walls, icy walls, moss-covered walls, etc.

The game itself was played from a first person perspective with very old-style "3D" graphics (I remember it being extremely disorienting, and there was no in-game map for areas you'd already explored, which made the game challenging). I can't remember if there were enemies, but I think there were traps, because I definitely remember that you could die. Which I did. A lot.

Did you play this on DOS or was it post-Windows 95? Or on Mac?

Do you remember anything about the colors of the game? I take it that the walls were all 90-degree angles like in Wolfenstein 3D?

Sounds like Lode Runner, although I don't remember any sliding doors or pressure plates. I played it on an old Mac in the late 90's.

It was definitely Windows 95. Same general era as the Magic School Bus and Carmen Sandiego computer games, if that helps.

It was all 90 degree angles. In terms of graphics it was similar to the old Windows screen saver: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oRL5durPleI But it was definitely a game! The colors varied by level: there was one that was all dark grey stone walls with moss, one that was all icy white and blue, one that was dark red like a fire temple kind of feel...

Not Dungeon Hack, it wasn't D&D-based (my parents were very firm on the "no violent games" front) Not Lode Runner either, it was first person.

Okay, I know VERY little about this anime, other than it's apparently very recent, either coming out (or at least still airing) either this year or within the past couple of years. I know that it's an anime that's heavy on fanservice, and from what I understand, the main male villain has a bit of an evil BDSM kind of feel to him (though not in an overt, over-the-top way, with heavy leather fetish stuff, but rather in that he has a dom kind of relationship with some other female characters), and I know that the main protagonist and his love interest make love at some point in the story. But something that I remember the most was a shot where the love interest and the protagonist are in a boat in a vaguely tropical lagoon-like area, and the love interest gal (who has long, light-colored hair) is topless, and her nipples in one shot are censored by a lens flare. And to be clear, so far as I can tell, this anime is NOT a pornographic one.

Cross Ange? It has finished airing in March 2015. Villain should fit, although the girl is the protagonist there. Her hair are long at first.

Madan no Ou to Vanadis has male protagonist, fanservice, longhaired heroine and is recent, but I'm not sure of other details.

I need jelp remembering two films(if its possible)and i'll be as specific as possible: The first one is a horror movie. What i remember is a movie character, the killer, escapesbthe movie, goes around killing the people trapped in the theater(i think they snuck in because it was night) and i remember a police officer looking through a door and not being able to see anyone. They destroy the film because i dont remember, but i think the killer was still alive. 2 characters remained until the end where the girl is trapped in the movie, and the kid lives. Probably came out around 2009/2010

The second movie was going through a groundhog loop. I dont remember exacts, but i know a news lady is killed, the main character keeps going through loops, manages to save the girl maybe one or two times, he dies in the movie maybe 2 times. A line i remember is something with either a swan or goose, but i really think it was a swan. Something about a generator, bad guy dies, and the guy gets the girl. I think it came out around the 90s becsuse of the cars looking 80sish and the way the camera quality was.

I think this was a film. At the very least, I'm almost positive I had it on VHS. It might have been an episode of a TV show.

Basically, what I remember most is a subplot involving a boy "addicted" to video games. I didn't have a console at the time (so pre-1997), so that was sort of my archetype for a while. A Magical Native American (I think Inuit?) is framed for poaching, and he sells his Gameboy at a pawn shop to get him out. I very vividly remember, the clerk offers $50, a girl he's there with says "we need $100," and the clerk says "got any games?" I remember it seemed strange to me even at the time that he sold the system first.

I also think this was my first introduction to the concept of bail. I remember when the boy goes to the prison and tells the clerk he's bailing someone out, I thought at first it was some kind of stickup, then some kind of bribe, until it was explained to me.

Pretty sure, though I may have my wires crossed here, there was also a single-use magic talisman for "when the time is right," despite most of the film being grounded in the real world. It may have been a metaphor, or a case of Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane, but I'm almost positive there was a lightshow to represent it, and that the talisman got a hole through it. Pretty sure the whole shebang was a Green Aesop, as well.

Please help. I'm sure I saw this, but Google is giving me worse than nothing - mostly at this point links to me asking about it in various places. Honestly, It's starting to feel like Candle Cove.

I remember watching what was either a Made for TV movie or an obscure movie in health class in 10th grade. I can't remember the name of it, but I remember the premise of it was this guy got busted for drunk driving and the judgement in the case was he was supposed to write checks to the one victim's family for a period of time, and he tried to write them all off at once. I don't remember much more than that, but I do know the lawyer from She Devil was in it in some capacity.

An animated show, most likely foreign, where these two sketchily-animated hands would become sketchily animated people (one a boy and one a girl), and would interact on a piece of paper. It was entirely silent aside from music and maybe occasional narration. I'm pretty sure the title was their names or something.

It was a long time ago on one of the movie channels there was this short film(?) that told like 3 different stories about some problems about the main character, an elementary school boy.

One of the stories revolved around a cat haunting him because he dissected it for class. Another one was about Halloween and a haunted house.

It was animated and despite the art style and concept, the movie was not for children. It was really raunchy with swearing and adult jokes.

I saw it around 2000 to 2005, I don't remeber exactly since I was young when I saw it.

Now the things I'm not sure about: the protagonist was a transfer student, he was from japan or the school was in japan, their gym teacher knew about the sprits and coached the kids, the summer spirit was female and was named summer, i can't remember if all the spirits were named after their season.
