I don't eat meat or vegetables. Cheese is the new everything.
Interests: literally nothing is interesting to me. everything bores the hell out of me. it's actually a little depressing.

Man, you're lucky you can crush me like a bug or I'd... write a nasty letter or something. I also said I hoped you would forfeit, and you didn't. That was disappointing, so thanks. Anyway, Gilbert, I kind of feel like we're on a first name basis now, even though my name isn't spelled "dummy." It's close enough that I'll let it slide, though. This should concern you. I picked you guys to walk through the Bears this weekend.

I'm not calling anyone a bad parent, for sure. I'm just raising the question, and I didn't go into much of the violence because that's commonplace today. However, the racial undertones were pretty common, even when they weren't being outright racist. Again, these cartoons were made for adults. Racist, closed-minded adults. Also, porky pig got called a lot of fat names, in addition to being made fun of for stuttering. All of the characters were pretty mean-spirited, and they were trying to kill each other, whether or not they were able to. Like I said, I'm not calling for a ban or anything like it. I was simply suggesting we watch them with a set of adult eyes before letting our kids watch them. Considering the mentality and views of their producers, it would only make sense to give them a look before stamping an approval on them. To answer your other question, I think it's almost worse that these messages are delivered to children by bunnies and ducks, because they certainly demand more attention from children and even perceived by kids as it being meant specifically for them. I thought Looney Tunes were for me, not my parents.

I'll also add that the Friz Freley mistake was a function of looking at "Tex Avery" and "Friz Freleng" and melding their names into one, new and improved name. That's how my mind works at 6 am. And to norm, I was totally talking about their penises. On Mon, Jun 7, 2010 at 11:15 AM, clay ardston <mayopie.ba@gmail.com> wrote: Yeah, it's Freleng. Sorry, writing stuff at 6 am is a bitch. It was an honest mistake, but you're well within your rights to be nasty. And they don't show old Looney Tunes? Didn't one of the other commenters just mention seeing them the other day? Mentions of cartoon characters smoking and whatnot? Maybe she's just crazy and you're right about everything. I can't tell from up here on my high horse. And, as far as what I watch (your question about classic movies from that era), you must have missed the part about CHILDREN watching this stuff. Also, Humphrey Bogart doesn't appeal to four year olds, cartoons do. And my point was, we even sometimes forget that the content can be pretty adult because it's a cartoon. I'll also have you know that I've called the entire Cyrus family evil, and they're pretty much the Disney poster people. I agree with your point. So let me ask you this: Are you the only one that gets to point at stuff and say it's wrong without being on a high horse yourself?

He's been in some great movies, for sure. But even in Top Gun, his character was pretty arrogant. I agree, though, Great movie.

This is what I'm saying. Leia spent more time being rescued than anything. I think I saw her fire a laser gun a couple of times, but my dog can do that. And then the jabba thing, yeah. Big deal. "Don't worry Luke, I'll take the slug with T-Rex arms." Thanks. My hero.

While I seemingly should have my man card revoked, every woman on my list would beat the snot out of Princess Leia. Furthermore, they wouldn't have been on the end of Jabba's leash in the first place, and in the end, she choked an immobile blob. Anyone could have done that. Now,I'm not going to say she's not on the list, but I will stand by my decision not to put her on it and defend my right to keep my man card. Sexual fantasies galore? Absolutely. Would Grace Jones eat her? Uh huh. (No pun intended.)

Pam Grier. See? Thank you, Miss Banshee. And Sigourney Weaver. How could I forget Sigourney Weaver?

Damn you, Rebecca. Ok, you win. You were all over that like a spider monkey. Juliette Lewis was a total bad ass in that movie, deb. Nice work.

I watched a couple of seasons with my ex. It was okay, but I put my foot down on the movie. Samantha annoys me. Not so much because she's a nymphomaniac. I like that part. It's something else. I can't put my finger on it. Nor would I.

Today, clean up the ocean. Tomorrow, restore stamp costs to 32 cents and we'll talk about it. Though I have to say, "A Perfect World" made up for at least two stinkers, or one "Tin Cup." It depends which formula you use.

When I saw this on the news, the correspondent was giggling and talking about how cute they were. The father and weatherman sitting next to her was looking at her like he wanted to choke her. Unfortunately, he did not. Thanks for all your comments, everyone. And you're all right, there are simply so many things wrong here, it's difficult to take one thing and run with it while leaving the other disturbing things behind. The dress, the moves, the song's adult content, the acceleration of these girls' youths, the lessons they're really learning from this that could lead to all sorts of teenage disorders... it goes on and on. How any sane parent could not only allow it, but defend it after the fact, is completely beyond me.

Wait, now that I saw that people are comparing them to penises, I'm not so hungry anymore. Carry on.

Crabmeat is delicious. I think they should drench them in butter... and feed them to me. Mmmm... olympic mascots with butter sauce.

I don't want to sound any alarms, but I have a feeling Derek's going to crumble under the stress while the real Chief will return to his position and once again awe us with his wisdom and logic. Then Derek's going to sleep with that intern who has a crush on him. *fingers crossed*

I can't believe I forgot Jack Nicholson in The Shining. I just watched it the other night, too. And yes, Gary Oldman. Hmmm... who else? Kevin Pollack - The Whole Nine Yards John Lithgow - Ricochet Bruce Willis- The Jackal I'll think of some more and get back to you. Apollo Creed? Clubber Lang? Drago? Why not?

Are you sure you and I aren't the same person? I'm starting to think we are. How tall are you?

Sometimes words aren't necessary. (Unless you're not a complete nerd. If that's the case, this is Ultra Man.)

Crabby- I don't know if you're aware of this, but Ned Beatty did not actually get raped. I referred TO A SCENE IN A MOVIE. For you to claim I've stepped outside the bounds of "supportive and appropriate" about violence issues is ridiculous. If you're disturbed, it's not because pf anything I've said, CRABBY.

Huh. I wasn't aware that was a formula and I've seen all those shows. I'm having trouble seeing how their product is this show, but considering you haven't seen it, I guess you really wouldn't know. Thanks for stopping by. I'll let the producers know norm is out.

What the hell's a "disco stick" and why does she want to ride one? I'm going to have to look up the lyrics and see if I can apply this new knowledge to a re-interpretation. I thought I had the metaphor all figured out. Dammit. I hate looking up stuff.
