“Vonnegut's Slapstick is an excellent (though a little self-derivative) novel, but the Jerry Lewis movie based on a small portion of the book is so awful that I'm fairly sure the masters have been buried under a mountain of lead. No wonder you neglected to mention it.”

Chad Wheeler on Aug 4, 2011 at 16:33:15

“I sort of don't/can't believe this even happened. Was the movie called Slapstick? I am SO curious to see it now.”

“I wonder why people are so mean to her or think she's narcissistic and out of touch. Here's an excerpt from another recent interview:

Interviewer: How do you respond to the criticism that GOOP's vapid lifestyle advocacy makes you look like a nonce?

Gweneth: I, me me my me. You know what I me?

Interviewer: And what does Beyonce think of all this.

Gweneth: As for me, I mean, my me, me, and me. I told them, "me me me, I me me." And that about sums it up, I think.”

“I seem to recall an article in Film Threat five years ago that did a remarkably similar comparison between City on Fire and Reservoir Dogs- using many of the same words. It really makes you wonder if Rotten Tomatoes is generating their own story ideas.

So, is it homage or stealing? You make the call?”

“The video isn't about the US necessarily. It's an attempt to show the reality of genocide around the world. We obviously wouldn't put up with the systematic execution of red haired people, but in places all over the world that sort of thing happens more often than we'd like to think, and because we find the deaths of people who don't look or sound like us to be boring news organizations don't properly cover genocide stories. It ought to be a source of shame for all of us. None of us are doing our jobs- or at the very least we expect someone else to do it for us.”

“it's a perfect representation of the targeting of a group because of their physical appearance.

“That's how I took it! Everyone is going ape over this thing and challenging it for the approach because it offends them. I just kept thinking of Burma when the running and explosions happened. She basically interwove genocides now and historically before.”

“but, seeing as the stereotype does not exist in australia and the supporters in the crowd aren't african americans anyway, there is simply no racism in the ad. in fact, what i find fascinating is the combination of ignorance and arrogance being displayed by those decrying this as racist, who seem to have no concept that the world does not revolve around the usa and your stereotypes and culture.”

“This sounds like one of those Loony Tunes moments when Daffy says "no public option" then Buggs says "public option!" and after a few repetitions he says "no public option but a radical expansion of medicare instead" and then Daffy replies "no public option but a radical expansion of medicare instead."

Expanding the program to include baby boomers would be, it seems, far more expensive than the weakened public option on the table currently. If this goes through it could go down as the most poorly played hand of poker in American political history.”

Men Aren't All That Happy Either

Commented Oct 20, 2009 at 12:20:59 in Healthy Living

“People so much time seeking validation in their own imagined setbacks. We glom on to whatever talk show or Oprah-recommended book that reflects that belief, like a faith unto itself.

So, are we happy? I'd rather not even use the word, thank you very much. It carries connotations still stuck in our fuzzy, delirious memories of childhood. And in that way, the term might in itself be a little childish.

To ask "am I happy?" implies all sorts of things that simply aren't true. It implies, for example, that our "happiness" might be the responsibility of someone else. Instead, I'd rather ask "Am I engaged?" Are you working with the world you have or pining for one that may not exist? Are you digging
into each day with eager fingers or are you simply watching everything happen around you and feeling sorry for yourself? I know that sounds a bit cheesy stated that way, but oh well. If you want to be engaged, cheesy trumps cynical ten times out of ten.

Personally, I can't tell the difference between simple boredom and deep-down, black-dog depression. I need to stay engaged in the world around me if I want to stay sane. That's what adults do.”

“now we know the REAL reason...

According to leaked documents from the show's production office, Delay is the target of an ongoing ethics investigation and exited the show on his own accord in an effort to avoid repercussions. Among the accusations against DeLay are that he engaged in a quid-pro-quo sequin trading scheme and that he gerrymandered the dance floor to make it harder for other couples to compete.”

“The ball leaves the frame, which is a natural consequence of this sort of thing but it's also an easy edit. Once the ball leaves the frame, it would be natural to assume that the "real" ball has been replaced digitally.

The ball doesn't appear to track properly with the background as the camera tilts down on the wide shot. Either the ball miraculously wiggled on the x-axis in mid-air or it's a fake.”

“I love how people complain about Obama for things he hasn't done which happen to be many of the same things GWB actually did.

GOP: "Obama doesn't want to protect the country (untrue). GWB had a perfect record- except for that one time when we were- by the same group that had attacked us before- in the same spot. Except for that his record was spotless!"

GOP "Obama wants to reform healthcare so he can kill old people (untrue). GWB just wanted to privatize Social Security which is completely different."

GOP: "Obama isn't the legitimate President (untrue). GWB won his first term in a court by a 5-4 decision."

To me the whole thing is hilarious.”

“For some reason, we live in the age of the pridefully ignorant- folks who seem to think that doubt is a legitimate argument, that a question can be a salient point in and of itself.

Some people like to play the role of the smirking pundit when, but the truth is that they simply don't really know the subject or, indeed, how much they don't know. Orly goes on and on about the "both parents have to be citizens" thing when she knows (or must know by now) that there is no truth in it at all.

As long as people make direct contact with those creepy, soulless eyes, she will continue to talk- even though she has long since run out of things say. She's a sideshow now, and MSNBC knows better than to book her on a "news" program.”

“Orly Taitz' Guide to Talk Show-Appearing and Truth-Telling

1. In response to any question, especially ones about the poorly-forged Kenyan birth certificate you just issued, repeat your previously debunked assertions, only slightly louder and in a higher register.

2. When corrected, just plow on through and repeat yourself.

3. When confronted about not having answered the original question or grappled with reality in any way, shout "please let me answer your question" in a voice resembling a baby seal in the process of being clubbed to death (because that's pretty much how it feels) then repeat your original assertions.

4. When the host brings on a co-host to lay out the concrete evidence against your point of view, accuse them of using "mainstream media ganging-up tactics" and shout even louder.

5. As you repeat your allegations once more, complement your cartoonish voice with bugged-out eyes and expressions of disbelief until the network cuts you off.

6. Commercial Break. Wictory!”
