Here's the trailer for the dropped Louis CK movie

Here's the trailer for the dropped Louis CK movie
Well, at least the cast and crew got paid for this movie. This movie seems to be a not too subtle attack on Woody Allen. Pretty much everyone has dropped this movie.
The US and International distributors have aborted the release of this indie movie.
From Variety, ((After being canceled by The Orchard in the U.S. amid allegations of sexual misconduct against Louis C.K., the comedian’s film “I Love You, Daddy” is now being dropped by international distributors as well. ))
This was Louis CK's second directed movie. Pootie Tang was also encased in production troubles, with Louis getting the boot from the post-production. And, now his second movie will get the boot. (Will we see it leak to the Internet?)

Will this be the next The Day the Clown Cried situation with only a few people seeing it at parties?  
I guess the only people to have seen this movie are the studio folks and those hipster critics with the funny/stupid hats and horn-rimmed glasses.  

Monica Fishburne Arrested...again

Monica Fishburne Arrested

Remember her? She was the one that decided to get into porn because she wanted to follow in Kim K's footsteps. She regretted it. After a few bouts in jail for attacking people, she moved to Florida. ((all crazy people move to Florida) She became a stripper down there. She showed up in my suggestion box on Twitter and I was not aware of the recent incident.  
Well, she has gotten into more legal trouble with this DUI.

I kind of feel bad for her because she is clearly doing all this to get back at her father. I believe her father was a rather demanding person and she felt left behind when he started another family. I think getting into porn was a way to get back at him. What is interesting is that not much has been written about this incident and she still can't get any fame from it. She's basically what happens when you have no talent but crave fame.
She decided to pee on the side of the road while in her handcuffs. She pulls down her pants and lets it rip. I also like the Trump bashing as well. Brilliant.
From Miami ((The scene took place after Fishburne, allegedly at the wheel of a Toyota Corolla, rear-ended a Range Rover that slowed down to avoid a previous crash.
Troopers who responded to both crashes found an open bottle of wine inside Fishburne’s car and wrote in their report her breath reeked of booze.
Fishburne, 25, eventually blew a .18 and .17 in breathalyzer tests that night, according to the troopers’ report. That’s more than twice Florida’s legal limit of .08.))
And, I can say this from family experience, You need to get some help. You are going to end up dead or homeless. Trust me. Perhaps, patch things up with your father and get into rehab.

Has anyone noticed...

Has anyone noticed...

That Pornstar Proxy Paige looks a lot like Zoe Quinn? I mean the facial features are shockingly similar and they both have similar body types. Then you throw in the blue hair and face piercings. Was this intentional?
BTW, Proxy's videos are a little bit rough.  

Throw out your trash

Throw out your trash
I've been fascinated with DSP for a while now. Just like a giant turd, He manages to stay afloat. This new reveal that his former girlfriend left a bunch of shit in his big house amuses me. It now seems she left rather quickly and didn't want to come back. He also did a video where he bragged about canceling her cell phone plan, which he was still paying for after the breakup.
I love that he still has tons of her stuff in her house and he refuses to get up and get rid of it. There is something funny about the fact he had spoiled soap rotting in a room.
Over time, it has come out that the break up wasn't mutual and that they were still friends. He made a statement that it WAS mutual and they remained friends. Hmm.
From his Twit-longer, (( This is a personal matter between us dealing with behind-the-scenes occurrences/feelings that, quite frankly, are nobody's business but our own. I wish Leanna the best (I still talk with her regularly) and we'd both appreciate it if you'd respect our privacy on this matter. As in, don't bother asking for details, because you won't get them. In fact, this is probably the only time Ill really address it, as I'd prefer to move  ))
If he wasn't such an asshole, I'd feel bad for him. I honestly believed he did love Panda Lee. However, he mistreated and ignored her in the later years that I am shocked she took it for so long. Now, he's refusing to leave that big old house that lives in alone and move back to the empty condo he also owns. This is sad.

Thor Ragnarok (part 1 of 2)

Thor Ragnarok (part 1 of 2)

First off, I really liked both of the other Thor movies. I enjoyed this one even more though. Thor 3 brings the 70s camp while furthering the Thor and Asgard arc. This movie fully embraces the 70s sci-ci look and feel. Thor 3 is a lot of fun and it also makes for an enjoyable Marvel movie. Despite having some major dark themes, it is the funniest of the Thor movies. It even changes the lore of the Thor universe going forward. I laughed and smiled as I watched this movie and that's what I wanted from Thor Ragnarok.
While not perfect, director Taika Waititi has crafted a fun throwback to 70s and 80s sci-fi adventure movies. Ragnarok is an early 80's movie with a bit of the Heavy Metal paint covering the edges.
Waititi took what happened before and molded into this strange hybrid of a Marvel movie and a homage to Tron and Flash Gordon. The movie is flashy and campy toward the second act when Thor ends up on a junk planet. During the planet stuff, we get to see some freaky colorful aliens and clothing. Even the planet looks like something out of the pages of Heavy Metal.
For that, I have to give credit to the movie for fully embracing the campy and in your face nature visuals. When the movie shifts toward the Junk planet, it takes on a 70's/80's look and feel. And, it is all wrapped up into the campy and over the top Jeff Goldblum. His take on the Grandmaster is a lot of fun and you can tell he's having a lot of fun. GM is the secondary villain in the piece and is better of the two villains too.
Goldblum plays the GM as that rich prick that thinks he's good at everything but sucks at everything. The GM even has a DJ table!
The GM's planet Sakaar is something we haven't seen in a Marvel movie and is an interesting take on that Star Wars worn-in environment. It's new and different for a Marvel movie and I like it a lot. (Loki seems to really like this planet too.) Again, it brings us closer to that Flash Gordon appearance.
The other thing that brings the strange campy 70s sci-fi feel is the score by Mark Mothersbaugh. Mothersbaugh is a founding member of Devo, so that is why you get that synth vibe in this movie's score. While the visuals embrace the Flash Gordon and Heavy Metal influences, Mothersbaugh's score bathes in the nostalgia of late the 70s and early 80s synth music. It should also be noted that the other Thor themes do come back during the later portions of the film.
The score does shift from being synth into a more traditional score in the third act, but some of the synth stuff does mix into the choral and strings. The score is the true star of the movie. (Make sure to listen to the Planet Sakaar track for a big smile.)
Chris Hemsworth is more laid back as Thor. The minor humorous elements from the first movie are bigger here. I like that Thor has changed from the first movie up to this newer movie. Because he has been hanging out with Tony Stark and Cap, he's a different person now. Hemsworth can is good with the improvisational nature of this story. While he is fighting demons and aliens, he makes jokes.  

Louis CK and all that crap

Louis CK
Yeah, this is troubling. I liked CK's stand up and the manner in which he attacked hecklers...especially SJW hecklers. Allegations came out about Louis CK. He was the realist type of comedian the spoke the truth about things. He pushed the envelope a lot with language and depression. While didn't watch all of the episodes from his show on FX, I enjoyed the balance between the humor and reality of being a lonely comedian. It hit home for me on that level.
And, I liked many of the other projects he worked on. Now, that this shit has come out.
He basically whipped out his dick and masturbate in front of women under him. He has fully admitted to the incidents in a detailed apology.
I do find it interesting that they released the story around the time of his now-defunct movie release. Did the news people sit on this story until it could make a big impact?
Anyway, I am disappointed with him and look at him in a negative light. You can have a fetish or into a type of thing., but the other person has to agree to it. You just can't bring out the lizard and start yanking it, especially if it an employee or co-worker. There are a lot of people into what he's into, and there is even a porn category for it (yes there is). So, why not just hire a sex worker or ask a one-night-stander.

Given the online apps and things, you can literally match up with someone who is into the same thing as you.   Is it a power thing?

RIPD Kinect: Xbox, shutdown

RIPD Kinect:  Xbox, shutdown 
From Gamespot, ((Microsoft's Kinect sensor, which sold millions across its Xbox 360 and Xbox One iterations but was often criticized, is officially dead. Ahead of its next earnings report later this week, the company has revealed that it has put an end to manufacturing of the device, meaning those still sitting on store shelves will be the last ones available for purchase. ))
I remember hearing about the Kinect way back in the day. It was Microsoft's answer to Wii's motion control system. It was a stronger version of Sony's Eyetoy. For the Xbox360, it was merely an add-on. Then, they tried to force-feed the Kinect down everyone's throats with the XB1. Plus, we'll add another 100 bucks to the XB1 and pretend the Kinect is necessary to the XB1's function. That was until they dropped that,
I found it funny that Microsoft tried and tried to push the Kinect with all their might. It kept failing and failing, but they were willing to support it all the way to this point.  
I really think the Kinect could have been an amazing piece of equipment if designed and promoted decently. I still find it funny that Microsoft wanted to fall on their Kinect sword when first selling the Xbox One. While support for the Kinect will dry up, Microsoft is providing Adapters for you to hook up the Kinect to your new more powerful Xbox One X.
By the way, you have to love the early demos for the Kinect "games".
I would have loved to have seen that Milo game (Demo), and watched it crash and fail. It was basically a Pokemon Snap with kids. It was called Project Milo. This project was fine, but what about the game challenge or story? Allegedly, Microsoft dropped the project due to disinterest.

Neo Yokio

Neo Yokio

Created and written by Ezra Koenig (who f' is this guy?). And, you get to hear human-tampon Jaden Smith voice the main character. When you have the useless rapper Jaden and someone I've never heard of team up for a cartoon show, how can you go wrong?
Well, a great deal. Spoiler alert: I hate this show. I hate everything and everyone around it. I honestly feel dumber after enduring its six episodes.
The show is hot garbage if said garbage was set ablaze upon a mountain of turds. I can't completely throw the entire series under the bus. There are a few funny moments here and there. Other than Smith, the rest of the cast is impressive. (Jude Law Susan Sarandon Jason Schwartzman Steve Buscemi ) They are just not given much in the way of good dialogue and writing.
If the show is supposed to be a comedy, it misses the mark at nearly every point. If it's supposed to be a demon-catching show, it fails completely. Is it a comedy about anime? Nope. It doesn't handle it all that well either.
Actually, Dragon Ball Super is a better series that parodies anime. Plus, we already have the funny One-Punch Man for that. Neo Yokio show takes itself too seriously for me to consider this a biting commentary on anime and anime tropes and cliches.
The animation goes from being very stiff to passable in some cases. There are times when it feels a bit too Marvel Comics from the 90s animated in some places. However, I am not sure if this was intentional.
I never have seen a show so out of touch with itself and the people watching it. These characters are all rich assholes written by rich young assholes for rich assholes. Instead of telling an interesting ghost-busting (demons) show, the show is more focused on talking about trendy things that rich people wear and do. Why should I cheer for anyone given that no one is redeemable? No cares about the name-brand suits or the names perfume. We want to see a dude busting demons. They're all stuck-up assholes that no one can cheer for. We can't even cheer for Jaden's Smith's Kaz Kaan.
Speaking of Kaz Kaan, he is one of the worst “heroes” I've watched on a TV show. I cheered for Stanis from GOT more than Kaz. Stanis killed his own daughter and brother, but he was a more interesting character than Kaz. Stanis is far more likable than Kaz. Kaz is supposed to be a magician that has the power to get rid of ghost and demons. The problem with this concept is that Kaz is more interested in dressing in nice clothes and buying big name gifts than saving people's lives. Why bother with the trendy shit, when you have a compelling idea for a show?
I could have put up with this shit if the show built to something. Yet, it just...ends...without much of a resolution or character growth.
This show isn't written for normal people or even normal anime fans. Instead, this show is written for the sons and daughters of the one-percent that spend time tweeting and don't have to worry about getting a job. I care for no one in the series. I would have cheered for the demons, but they play such a small role in the series that I can't even call them the villains. Clearly, the show started out as one thing and switched gears as the production went on. In the end, we get an entitled little shit hero and poorly conceived and written anime show that is worse than even most things on Fox or CBS.

If you want to see what could go wrong on a show made by out of touch people, watch it for that reason. Give me a reason to like the main character or the show in general next time.  
Grade: F+

Yeah, that was racist and stupid.

Yeah, that was racist and stupid.
A beauty shop customer? Nope, you wanted to see if you could walk around in black-face and not get called out. I am sure it was a bit of a “This is Trump America. We can get away with this.” To further support my theory, I think she called herself something else to another customer.
If she did think it was a harmless thing, didn't any of her co-workers warn her about this shit?
From East Bay Times, ((Staples released a statement Monday, saying that a store employee “wore a costume for Halloween that they intended to have represent an office product, but didn’t realize it could be considered offensive to some of our customers.”
While it was unintentional, it was still inappropriate and once this was raised to the representative, they immediately removed the costume. Staples apologizes to any customers that may have viewed a photo of the associate on social media. We respect diversity and try to foster a sense of diversity and inclusion in our stores, as well as provide an atmosphere in which all customers feel comfortable.”))

I am not the one that claims that everything is racist and sexist, but this is a bit much for even me.
  Why does this remind of this scene?  

I had a dream...lame

I went to bed and had a dream. I had a dream co-starring this fine lady.

Yes, I had a dream about Belladonna. She was a famous pornstar from the early 2000s. For some reason, she popped into my dream world. Here's the kicker; I didn't have sex with her in my dream. She came over to my place and slept in my bed because she had to go to work in the morning. She got up and left my room and disappeared from my house to whatever “work” she had to do.  There were no sex scenes or anything during this dream. 
Even in my dreams, I am a beta-cuck that can't even pull the trigger in the dream world. I've watched Belladonna in many scenes over the years and fully know how she looks naked. Not even my dreams do I  a sex drive to make the dream narrative any different than a damn glorified sleepover.  And, I am actually okay with her just crashing in my bed and leaving the next morning.  
In the dream world, you can be a warrior or a king of a universe.  You can be the star of your own stories, but all I can dream about is a retired pornstar sleeping in my bed and nothing else.  
What's next I have a spot of tea with Aurora Snow? Will I share snacks with Riley Reid?

When roommates go wrong...

When roommates go wrong...
Wow, this is very ugly. This is one of those stories where you go “Wait, what?” When you are willing to put your DNA and shit (literal shit) on someone's personal items.
Clearly, this Brianna Brochu is a horrible person. I truly think she did this because she couldn't stand living with a black roommate. There is trolling that goes on in college, but this was clearly being malicious.
From NBC News, ((In the video, Rowe said she always felt “unwelcome” in their dorm room and that the tension alone was enough to make her seek out another roommate. During that time, she said she also suffered from "extreme throat pain" sore throat for nearly a month and campus health officials couldn’t diagnose the illness. ))
Being a black guy, I can agree with this feeling. I've felt unwelcome in certain places when I interacted with certain white people. I also think they really hated me because I didn't fit a stereotype.
Of course, social media got Brianna (of trash) in trouble. Brianna bragged about on IG and it landed her in jail. Brianna of Trash is so stupid that this racist incident landed her in jail with a record and the school kicked her out. She also lost her scholarship.

Look at this “lovely” lady's mugshot.

Fat Albert and the Dreaded R-Word

Fat Albert and the Dreaded R-Word
When I saw this short clip, I thought it was made up or faked. However, it is very much a real episode of Fat Albert. this clip literally popped up in my YouTube suggestion feed and I watched it. The clip grew in popularity recently and the Double Toasted folks took a crack at it.
For some reason, this kid's design looks similar to that of Gary Coleman. And, Cosby and Coleman would show up in the same movie during this time. The show handles this issue is rather progressive for its time (the 70's). However, it lays on the message rather thick. Using the word "retarded" seems a bit off by today's standards.
Given I lived through similar issues, the kid in the show seems to be closer to having learning disabilities and maybe some autism than what the show is trying to convey. I had trouble connecting to other students and had to take a longer time to understand school projects especially math. I kind of acted detached from the rest of the student body. So, I understand what this show was trying to do, but fails due to its age. It is a good message but is too loud for its own good.
Ah, 70's and 80's cartoons. Keep in mind these are the same people that made Star Trek the Animated Series and He-Man. The man behind the studio Lou Scheimer passed away back in 2013.
And, there were other "Very special episodes". 
Anyway, I got a kick out of watching these old Fat Albert episodes. I used to watch them at school all the time.

Side Note: Miss Wucher is hot. I remember rule 34 and I did some digging.  Heu, Wucher, give me a call.  

Really? Not even a boob joke is safe?

Great, now a lesbian comedian can't even make a breast joke on Twitter. These two are clearly friends and I am sure they make a lot more dirt tier jokes outside of twitter. By the way, this is where we are now at, Twitter? This is what we're offended by?
And, you clearly see Katy smiling as Ellen peers into her fun balloons. They are just having fun and some people have to twist it into something sinister.
I am no expert on female to female behavior, but many of friends to make these dirty jokes just like men do. Relax, people. This is not the same as a fat rich guy groping and trying to pressure actresses in his bedroom. I love how the far left and right are attacking her over this harmless photo.
I am not a boob guy, but even I have to give Katy Perry praise on her “balloons”. I am not going to leer, but I will give you a passing glance. And, it should be noted that she's made fun of her body numinous times like that SNL thing.
As I stated before, I am not a boob guy, but damn.

Random Things

Random Things
~I not doing that well mentally, but I am getting through it.
~Polygon editor goes after Nintendo: As much as I hate Polygon, he is partly right about Nintendo. The big N is set in its ways and doesn't understand that the gaming world has changed.  
However, he shouldn't have attacked the fans. The best part is he didn't lose his save file. Perhaps, you shouldn't tweet as much. When you get mad, think before tweeting.  I love that he had a meltdown and then realized he didn't need to have said meltdown. ReviewTech is right that the gaming press is going to cover his back. I've noticed this a lot this year. The Alex Mauer story wasn't really covered by the press either.  You would think the gaming press would get tired of just writing about how hard is Cuphead. If it was a YT journo, we would see story after story about it.
~George HW Bush and that groping thing: Wow, I guess George is a dirty old man that gives him an excuse to grab onto women. This really bothers me, because people can throw it under the bridge due to him being an old man in a wheelchair. It kind of reminds me of that Taylor Swift photo incident where that DJ grabbed her ass.  I kind of liked HW Bush and this has changed the way I look at him.  

~Kellogg has some explaining to do?: Someone called out Kellogg for having one of their boxes and noticed one of the only one corn character was brown and the rest were yellow. The brown one was a janitor. Okay, it is probably a bit racist, but is it really something we should be concerned with given the real racism going on around the world? I can call it out, but I want to be more focused in on the skinhead that rams his car into people than a damn brown corn cartoon character. Come on people stay focused on meaningful things. Damn, do I hate twitter. Actual racism teaches racism to kids. Is it racist? Yes, but we have bigger issues in race relations to deal with than a shitty corn character.

bless you, f' you

bless you, f' you

I sneezed and it always bugs me because some asshole takes it upon themselves to bless you. I didn't want to acknowledge the said person, but I have to say "thank you" just because someone has decided to “bless me”. How about we say "bless you" when we hear someone farting? A fart is a similar type of thing that makes a sound. Most of the time I just want to not be noticed and left alone. I have to worry about sneezing and having someone help me out by blessing me.
I truly hate when I get some concerned person giving me a damn “bless you” when I sneeze. It just bothers me like when people hold the door for me. Stop being nice to me. Yes, I know it is an old superstition, but can we evolve beyond this stupid tradition? I get paranoid when I feel a sneeze coming up.
There are the stories behind the “bless you” superstition
1 Your heart stops and people are blessing you.
2 Your spirit tries to escape and they are blessing you in order to get the spirit back in your body.
3 It seems most people really believe that it came from one of the Popes.
From Got Question, ((During a plague that occurred in Italy in AD 590, sneezing was, or was thought to be, a sign that someone was getting sick with the plague. There is a legend/tradition that Pope Gregory I commanded that, any time a sneeze was heard, the sneezer was to be blessed by saying, “God bless you,” (and making the sign of the cross over his mouth) as protection against the plague. Again, there is no biblical validity to such superstition. At the same time, there is no biblical reason to believe it is sinful to bless someone after a sneeze—in fact, it might just be a good time to extend a kind word and say, “God bless you.” ))
So, when someone says “bless you”, just say, “F' you” back to them. That way they'll never say it back to you or anyone else. Let's end this tradition and make the world great again.  

IP Camera Trolling fun

IP Camera Trolling
Because I watch a lot of Vent Harassment vids, YouTube sometimes sends me suggestions for IP Camera Trolling videos. I love that the actor reacts to howl first and his agent realizes that the camera has been hacked. Basically, the hacker had to do a little research into the ad he's talking about. Anyway, here's the ad.
Why is there a guy playing the tuba in the middle of a Saturday night?  (actually, that might be a baritone) 
What is an IP camera? From the Wiki page, ((An Internet protocol camera, or IP camera, is a type of digital video camera commonly employed for surveillance, and which, unlike analog closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras, can send and receive data via a computer network and the Internet. ))
And, people find ways to hack into the cameras and troll people. It is a big trolling thing and it even has YT channels devoted to it.

Virtuosity Kapow

I was listening to the How did this get made podcast about this horrible, but often overlooked movie. They mentioned this scene and I always remembered this scene any time it pops in my head.
There is so much wrong with the entire scene that it is worth noting all the stupid moments in the scene.
-Why would people chant “KaPow, KaPow” during the damn fight? Doesn't that take away from the “amazing” match going on in the ring? Who started the chant? Was it Michael Buffer?
-Was the cameraman really into just this one chick? It was such a problem that the announcer had to say something about it.
-You have to love that after Russel Crowe kills that guy in the crowd, the crowd still continues with the chant. Some of the folks actually start to cheer too.
-Was Crowe going to bite her on the neck like a vampire?
-Was that her boyfriend or her “boss”? He seemed a bit too sleazy.
Despite knowing this movie is crap, I will watch it every time because it is so campy and silly. Crowe is great as the “BAD” guy, and Washinton is trying to make a good movie. As long as you view this piece of crap as an FMV CD video game from the 90s, you'll like it too.

DSP okay

DSP okay
Because he is such an ass, I enjoy the more minor trolling he receives. Like this Instagram trolling, it gets to him. Every time he posts something stupid on his IG, he receives a bunch of people leaving “okay” on each and every posts. That gives me a big laugh. Just something this small bothers him.
When I want to post a picture, I usually just put it up on the blog. I really don’t use social media anymore.  I just can’t understand the concept behind IG. However, people trolling him is rather funny.
While I might set up an IG account to host some photos, am I required to take random pictures of food? It seems to be the case in FB and IG posts.  Would someone be interested in the food I am about to consume?  Maybe a picture of where it ends up would be more interesting.

Seth MacFarlane called out Harvey Weinstein way back in the day

Seth MacFarlane called out Harvey Weinstein way back in the day
You can hear the groans in the crowd after the remark. I guess Seth didn't get the memo that “were not supposed” to talk about that. Being Weinstein is a dick-head, I am certain he called Seth afterward and gave him a “talking to”.
Harvey is a terrible guy and Hollywood knew about it but kept it under wraps.
Does this make your skin crawl?

Crazy lady vs bus

This is why I don't use public transportation

There are people generally just trying to make a living, and they have to put up with this shit. At a certain, the ghetto-acting lady needed to drop it but decided to keep going. There comes a time when you have to realize you are wasting your time. In the black community, we've let this ratchet behavior take over and define us. We can be better than this.  
The other lady is right...let it go.  Then, the crazy lady had to throw in one more insult about his looks.

Jaden Smith: Batman

Jaden Smith: Batman
Jaden Smith really annoys me. He's everything bad about the born rich entitled kids from talented parents. Jaden is a talentless hack that is a blight on the creative world with his shitty movies and music. He's a guy we all wish would just go away. Thanks to his new shitty Netflix show, I've been seeing Jaden's stupid mug show up in my YouTube feed. I decided to watch this music video.
Now, the reason this music video and song exist is that Jaden dressed in a full Batman suit for Kanye West's wedding for no reason other than to be “different”. I think he honestly believes he is Batman. So, I guess it makes sense for him to make a song about it. From his point of view, it makes sense.

About that CBS person

Hayley Geftman-Gold

I really didn't want to write about the shooting because I am not in the best place mentally for it. However, this story about a CBS higher-up has caught my attention.
From Business Insider, ((If they wouldn’t do anything when children were murdered I have no hope that Repugs will ever do the right thing," Geftman-Gold wrote in comments that have since been deleted from her Facebook page. "I’m actually not even sympathetic bc country music fans often are Republican gun toters." ))
She was fired after the post from her high-powered job from CBS.
I've called out the far right when they have made insensitive remarks and the past. This is no different. Even if you felt that way, why even bother saying that just after the gunshots have just stopped? It shows a disconnect. I think things have gotten so “us vs them” that we no longer see the other side as being human. It is so sad that we're so divided as a nation. These people didn't deserve to have hundreds of bullets rained down on them. And, I can see how Hayley can't show an ounce of empathy for the victims.
Keep in mind this goes both ways. Just because someone disagrees with you doesn't mean you run them over with your car or smash them over the head with your bike lock. Something nasty has come over us as a nation when it comes to politics and identity politics. I personally want nothing from it.
I may not agree with “gun-toting REP crowds” but that doesn't mean I have to be an ass about their plight. I kind of miss the cynicism of the 90s when people really didn't take their political stances as serious as they do today.
Anyway, should she have lost her job because of her comments? I generally lean toward people not losing their jobs over bull-crap they say over social media. I honestly can't answer this one because of the total disregard for human life. I do think people, professionals, need to really rethink about sending a tweet or Facebook post when forming an opinion. However, it does bother me that there was a witch-hunt for her after her remarks as people tried to get her fired from her job.
When it comes to these type of incidents, we have to be sensitive to the situation and discuss accordingly. While I don't think people should police our thoughts and voices, we should consider how to convey thoughts. Perhaps, even show some compassion despite our political views.

In Chris Chan we trust...

In Chris Chan we trust...
I had written out a post about Chris Chan getting a “girlfriend”, but that post was moot because he has allegedly broken up with her. I asked, “What kind of woman would want to deal with a smelly mess that is mentally breaking down?” Well, “Jessica” may have been a troll/white knight. She was supposed to have gone on a date with him. She must have gotten cold feet and dumped his ass twice. The second one appears to have been a fabrication of a Facebook hack. She blamed it on the trolls and broke up with him.
Why would any woman risk trolling or white knighting him due to his mentally unstable mind?
After all the trolling, you would think he would have known by now that no true woman would want to be with him unless it was a ruse. Somehow, he was able to receive a breakup BEFORE the actual first date.

The Orville: My thoughts (Part 1 of 2)

The Orville
Make no mistake about it, this is a Star Trek series. Wel, in the spirit it is. It is under the guise of a comedy/parody of the Trek universe. However, it's more of a drama with some light-heart comedy thrown in. This is NOT a straight comedy as the Fox ads try to convey. The drama elements work with some of the humor portions working from time to time.

It is a spiritual sequel to the TNG with its hopeful view od the future and its brand of bright storytelling. However, it wants to discuss serious issues through the brand of TNG's storytelling.
After Ted2, I wasn't looking for to Seth MacFarlane live action stuff. However, I find myself really enjoying this show. And, the writing has gotten progressively better as the show gone on.
The Orville actually handles things much better than Voyager as far as character development and sci-fi stories go. It feels, sounds and looks like a direct sequel to TNG. If you didn't know already, Seth MacFarlane is a huge Star Trek fan. He really loved TNG DS9 and TOS. He has put in numerous trek callbacks into Family Guy and the Enterprise plays a big part in Ted 2.
The worst thing I can say about the series that Seth decided to go with VOY and ENT creator Brannon Braga as one of the creative driving forces behind the show. Braga is one of the reasons ENT and Voy failed in my opinion.
However, a lot of trek alum show up for the series. Jonathan Frakes Robert Duncan McNeill and James L. Conway are directing episodes just to give it that TNG smell. Plus, Penny Johnson Jerald from DS9 is a member of the main cast.
So, I watched the first three episodes of this series. To my surprise, the series has some really good elements. The first episode is more interested in personal problems that befall Seth's character. It is the moving point for the first episode. We've all had personal issues set us back professionally. I even like the way they resolved the personal issue.
