  1. Glad to see it. This piece of garbage doesn't deserve any slack. https://www.cnn.com/2018/12/07/entertainment/kevin-hart-oscars-step-down/index.html

    Hollywood Sexual Harrasment/Assault Thread

    It IS a great song, certainly amazing vocal performance. I know many see it as creepy because of the society they've been brought up in, as 18 being this watermark for sexual consent. But 2/3 of the world puts it at 16... so I guess it's not so creepy in Canada, the UK, and Europe? It just makes one wonder. I was always stunned that sexual themes have always been a reason to ban a song, but MURDER is not! Another example of how the United States looks the other way when it comes to violence, but sex is dirty and must be hidden.

    Carpenters discussion thread

    Brilliance in every corner, and in every way. It makes me so sad to think how tortured she must have been in some ways. Richard tries, but it seems like he's been a walking shell since she was gone, trying to pick up the pieces of what was. This for me, is their best song. And the video so beautiful, shot at the Huntington botanical garden. This is an amazing medley.

    Hollywood Sexual Harrasment/Assault Thread

    I don't like the song.... but yes... utterly ridiculous. Mark my words, "Your'e Sixteen" (Johnny Burnette and Ringo Starr) and "Into The Night" by Benny Mardones will be next on the list. Geez, this chick thought somebody looking at the tattoo on her shoulder was creepy? Some people need to slow their roll.

    The Politics Thread

    I'm of the opinion that Ross Perot is what cost him his re-election campaign. I still remember how ridiculous Perot's doddering running mate, Admiral Stockdale came across. Maybe when he was younger he would have worked ok... but Lord, that man didn't even seem to know who was in the room with him!

    The Politics Thread

    That about sums it up. These turkeys on facebook never have a word to say about this modern "war on christmas" when I post half a dozen youtube videos of commercials from the 60's and 70's which all say "Happy holidays", and I casually mention that for the first half of Obama's first term, the "leftist liberals" had a filibuster proof majority, and if they want to take their guns, they would have done it already. They are just too stupid to know that the Republicans are manipulating them.

    Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer accused of bullying

    One complaint I've heard over the years is that Santa is portrayed as far too grumpy in this, he's supposed to be a JOLLY man. They would have done better to have Burl Ives voice Santa instead of the snowman. His voice was much friendlier. They corrected it in 1970 when they made "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town", Mickey Rooney did a far better job as Santa. All of the Rankin/Bass special had a lot of tear jerking moments in them, though..... "Nestor The Long Eared Christmas Donkey" was the worst, with his mother covering him up with her body to save him from a blizzard, and then dying during the night.

    Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer accused of bullying

    Realistically, I see the criticism... and this special had a great deal of complaints when it first aired in 1964, so much so that they filmed a new sequence for the 1965 broadcast where Santa goes back to rescue everyone on the island of misfit toys. Children all across the country were sobbing because Santa abandoned them. To make room for this scene, unfortunately, they screwed up continuity by deleting the scene where Yukon Cornelius finally finds what he's been looking for all his life, a peppermint mine. So it leaves the viewer to wonder why he's licking his pick through the whole show. I do see how it sends a message that if you are different in some way, you will only be accepted if you can give someone something, or save their ass in some way. The whole scene with Clarice and her father, though, shows the innocence of children, until adults teach them fear and prejudice.

    He was in a hurry to get back to his hotel to change his underwear.

    I'm seriously hoping the Deustche bank raid will uncover laundering by Trump. That would be so delicious. Something tells me that raid is gonna be a really BIG deal, and since it was done by European authorities, Trump nor any Republican Senator can exert any pressure on them.

    He's just dumb as a box of rocks. Maybe he can share a cell with Don Jr.
