Did someone say cookie dough ice cream?
Posted on January 20, 2015 by Tim
|Surprise, still here! Insert standard excuse #37 here. So let's lead off tonight with a combination of Fan Art and Fan Fiction. Bet you didn't guess that we have another Gulliver63 illustrated fic! This one is titled Tweak II: The Mutant Spring. It is, obviously, a sequel to a prior story by the same name. In this one the most dangerous woman on Earth finds herself exiled to a planet full of mutants. The Planet Express gang also find themselves on this same planet, caught up in a political upheaval between "normal mutants" and psionics. That ought to be fun. Someone grab some cookie dough ice cream and spoons and lets watch. |
And for more reading fun, Futuregirl223 has not one but two more parts to her Fan Fiction called Oh My!. These are, respectively, part 3 and part 4. Read on as someone finally tames the Zapper (maybe). And that someone might just be related to Fry.

|A slightly late or early Merry Xmas everyone. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to hold this 'till next year or not, but I don't trust my memory overnight, much less the three hundred and sixty shopping days 'till Xmas, so here's a Xmasy themed Fan Art from Demented Honkey. And it looks like most of the crew is enjoying a relaxing evening just before or after Xmas. |
And now that we don't have to worry about being judged naughty or nice for a while we turn our attention to this Leela pose entitled Pinup in Space. It would look right at home on a 2945 calendar, wouldn't it? This is courtesy of the talents of Ralf Stumpf.
And finally today here is a new Fan Fiction chapter. It's part 2 of Futuregirl223's Oh My!. A more classic fanfic plot there isn't: Zapp gets a woman pregnant. Oh, and did I mention, she's Fry's half sister?
Merry Xmas and all that stuff

|Ho Ho HO! It's almost time for SantaBot to make his rounds (and actually he's already started in some places this reaches) so while we're all safely barricaded behind the armored fireplace cover, here's something of a first - a Fan Art that's a Xmas gift. The art is by Spaceman130 and it's a gift for Trenton Sands because “been a great friend to me on FMMB”. The pic is a promo for Trenton's fanfic Sailing A-Weight, which is one his early stories that might just predate me on this site. |
Here's some more Fan Art from someone we haven't heard from in a long time.
Futurama_Freak1 sez he wondered if he could still draw Futurama, being as he hasn't done it in a while, and sure enough, he can. There is a reason he got to wondering that, unfortunately I'm sworn to secrecy at the moment, so I can't tell you what is is. Still, cool pic.
And lastly, before I go double check the window armor and auto cannons, Dwayne Anderson slipped the next chapter of Space Age Doofus under the door.
Dates, games, and maybe dating games.

|I suppose that anyone who is anyone hereabouts already has theirs (I know I do) but for those that just haven't quite gotten around to it yet here's a peek at the 2015 Futurama calendar. Our good chum Spaceman130 sent in some photos of his. There's the cover, awesome centerfold, and back cover. They're in our Miscellaneous Pictures section. |
And speaking of Spaceman130 he also sends some Fan Art. Those that follow his exploits in these pages are probably aware that he's a big fan of the video game Vampire Rain: Altered Species for PS3, which has inspired him to draw a few pics of a Futurama crossover version which he calls Vampire Rain: FUTURISTIC Species. There's a promotional picture (see here) for the game with Fry and his team posing with various weapons, a "screenshot" of the game and it shows Fry in the sewer sneaking up behind Dwayne (who's really a nightwalker) with a shotgun, and one of Leela posing with her sniper rifle.
And, just to round things out, a new Fan Fiction. It's called Oh My! and it's by Futuregirl223. It starts with the premise that Fry had a half sister who followed him to the future. She meets Zapp, the usual happens, and .... oh my! Also, this is just part 1, so we might not quite get to the real Oh My just yet.
Free will my shiny metal!

|Return with us now to those heady days of yore, back in two thousand twelve when new episodes of Futurama were still airing. Ahh, what a time that was. And following in the same vein, this is a two-fer in the things we haven't seen in a while, 'cause DSS has returned with a new bit-o-Fan Art, which is Leela using her scrunchie as a catapult from the episode Free Will Hunting. |
And next up is a Fan Fiction by Robert Stewart. I've had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Stewart and I can tell you he's a fun guy with a lot of funny stories to tell. His latest fic is called Let's Fix Time and it's about the PE crew dealing with a security guard with a bad personality.
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.
Tricks and Treats
Posted on October 31, 2014 by Tim
|Boo! Happy Halloween everyone! Hope you scored lots of treats. Here's a treat, two of them actually, that happened as a result of a trick. I speak of course of the ill fated Crap Art contest from a couple of updates back. Well, the win is we got some new crap art! I'm tryin' to think but this just might be the first CA I've done here and it's been ... uh ... a really long time. Anyway, here's a couple of pics of the crew as Jack-O'-lanterns by Spaceman130. |
kaspired sends this spookey Fan Art called Demon Amy. He called it his “minor” little contribution to the Halloween fest (the quotes on the word minor are mine - I've seen this guy work, he must have at least ten or fifteen minutes into that, hardly “minor” in my book ). He doesn't really say what's going on here, just wishes us Happy Halloween and that he figured the mystery of what is happening is more fun. Anyway, here's a real kicker - would anyone like to own the original of this print, hand drawn on 11-1/2 x 17 inch 150 lb illustration paper, with a mere 44 colors? Well, it might just be possible. Kaspired has graciously offered to let us auction off the original, along with the practice sketches, proceeds to go to supporting this site. So stay tuned to this page for more info to be announced shortly. We'll be running this ourselves so it's real unlikely that Fox will make us call it off.
And not to be left out of the festivities, Gulliver63 also has a couple of screamers. One is another Amy-thing so I'll show this vampire-Morgan instead. Happy Halloween everyone!

|Happy Friday everyone! Here's a new spot o' Fan Art from Ralf Stumpf. It's called Amy Wong Mastermind and the back story is that Amy found an old invention of Farnsworth's, the “Smart Blaster”. It looked like a hairdryer to her so she used it, but not only did she get smart she also get evil and she made a new costume for her new ego. From now on her goal is to rule the world. For some reason, I'm OK with that. |
Call this double Fan Art day because here's some more, eight of 'em in this batch from Spaceman130. He says that the line drawings are about eight years old and they're his first attempts at drawing Bender, Fry, the Professor, Kif, and Zapp. The b&w sketches are the originals, the other ones were colored in this week.
And lastly, I received some Halloween related art (not this one) today which reminds that said holiday is coming up in just a couple of weeks. So any appropriately themed contributions would be most welcome.
