Gravity Falls: 10 Years Later
Let's look back at 10 years of this wonderful show, which you can binge right now on Disney+.
Naturally, you knew where this was going. I posted it in Chatty yesterday, but here's show creator Alex Hirsch and some of the nightmares he had to endure with Disney S&P.
One last treat. Ever curious about the fights I had with the censors on Gravity Falls? I probably shouldn't share this buttttt here are some REAL NOTES from DISNEY S&P and my REAL REPLIES.

Lord knows the last thing DISNEY wants to do is encourage the furries.
Scenes from the Rumbleverse Network Test
I don't care that this was six days ago. Who's writing this feature? Yes, we're revisiting Rumbleverse.
THIS! IS! SPARTA!
Bouncing elbow for the win!
And we end with Mustard putting some... er... mustard on these blows.
You can read more about Rumbleverse with our recent preview.
Even Sakurai knows that FF7 Rebirth is something to be really excited about.
Nothing but the Hotfix
For this week's Games Done Quick Hotfix spotlight, we return to the world of randomizers. You've seen combo randomizers for A Link to the Past and Super Metroid, but have you seen their original NES counterparts combined in such a way? Check it out and enjoy!
Remember to catch GDQ's Hotfix shows every week at the Games Done Quick Twitch account.
This week in Shaqnews
shaq’s prediction last december 😌 pic.twitter.com/GR6YOk9vhA— KLAY HAS 4 RINGS (@seacaptainklay) June 17, 2022
You can argue about whether this was a bold prediction or not, but the man was certainly right.
IT'S STILL REAL TO ME, DAMMIT!
Man, look at this blast from the past that's been uploaded to the WWE YouTube channel. Check out this monumental (and rare for free TV at the time) clash between Hulk Hogan and Goldberg from 1998.
Tonight in video game music (Special E6 edition)
We're getting more of our musical performances on the Shacknews YouTube channel. Here are two of them.
Also, Mega Ran did this earlier.
Keep an eye on our YouTube channel for the rest of our performances from this week.
