  • Backlash over 'sexist and racist' DVD cover of The Sapphires [Artistic Freedom? Nope.]

    The DVD front cover of Australian film The Sapphires has triggered a backlash after exaggerating the role of the Irish actor Chris O'Dowd while downplaying the four Aboriginal stars. The image, used for the DVD cover of the film in the United States, was labelled "sexist and racist" after it showed O'Dowd front and centre even though he played the manager of the Aboriginal soul singers on whose story the film is based. The image prompted a furore on social media amid claims it relegated the role of the Aboriginal women and suggested O'Dowd, whose profile is building in the...

  • MTV 'SNOOP' POOP

    08/06/2006 7:43:56 AM PDT · by BenLurkin · 13 replies · 1,201+ views
    Media watchdogs are barking over an MTV cartoon that portrays a Snoop Dogg-like character leading two women around on leashes - before scooping up their poop. The new MTV2 animated series "Where My Dogs At?" satirizes such Hollywood stars as Michael Jackson, Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan. But industry pros are incensed over the portrayal of women and blacks in episode four. The half-hour episode, "Woofie Loves Snoop," debuted last month - and until it was removed yesterday, the offending clip was just a click away on MTV.com. "Seinfeld"'s Jason Alexander voices Snoopathon Esquire III, who struts out of his...

  • Malvo and the War Debate (ZOT!!! Why not to go off antipsychotic meds without a doctor’s guidance)

    I am curious why none of the media covers the most important aspect of the Malvo shootings. If you look at Newspapers on the dates when the shootings are underway you discover something I find quite interesting. The shootings begin to dominate the news the day before the debate on the Iraq war starts and they catch them the day after the declaration of war??? If you ask most people "do you remember the debate about starting the second Iraq war", they will all answer "yes of course". But if you followup with the question "name one point in the...

    I recently received a reply to a post that stated: "This should be beneath a "freeper". Sad." So I asked.. what is it that makes a FReeper? My reply (and I will admit was tasteless) was also questioning. It stirred controversy and was removed? Why Moderators? Can you not tell me? Did it not meet with your "FReeper" mentality? According to all posted guidelines it should be listed but no, you chose to delete it. Yes.. I'm the first one IBTZ, I'm sure you'll nick me for speaking up..

    What does the kind of vehicle you drive say about your political views ? An informal survey that I did before the last election found that drivers with foreign cars were more likely to back Kerry while those with American cars were more apt to support Bush. As a "old school" labor Democrat, I have consistently purchased union-made American vehicles. While conducting my survey matching political bumper stickers with cars, I observed that about 90% of the vehicles with Kerry stickers were on foreign automobiles. The only exceptions were a few middle aged guys driving American trucks with Kerry stickers...

    Washington, DC press conference Thursday will see the New York Senator call for a Federal Trade Commission inquiry into the San Andreas mod. Tomorrow in the country's capital, Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY) will call on the Federal Trade Commission to launch an inquiry into the "Hot Coffee" mod, sources have told GameSpot.

  • Communism and human nature (Bolshie Mod sez, Arise ye kittens of the earth!)

    04/05/2005 10:50:57 AM PDT · by Sammy sam · 153 replies · 8,234+ views
    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

    July 25, 2004 -- BOSTON So far, John Kerry has been an onlooker at his own convention. Every day last week, the already- dark mood of his hometown grew surlier, as the extent of the convention's massive disruptions of daily life became ever more apparent. But the man who would lead the Free World essentially went MIA. He spent several days in serene splendor at the $10-million oceanfront mansion on Nantucket that his second wife inherited from her first husband. The senator windsurfed by day and hobnobbed with the Beautiful People by night, pedaling his $8,000 Serotta bicycle into the...
