Kill Hollywood?

So I was looking for a website “against Hollywood” that had conveniently listed the contact info for all of their agents and I came across this foolish petition calling for an end to any movies that don't prop up stupidity. A few of the comments left by people signing it:

"In your fictitious world everyone is for love/peace/and the right to smoke the real world we go to war to protect communist/head in the sand people like you!!!"

"Hollywood is absolutely disgusting! I am so sick of stupid 'movie stars' thinking they know what they are talking about! The truth is they live in fantasy worlds. They really are undeducated, uninformed, and obnoxious. I will be boycotting all these unpatriotic horrid people! God Bless President Bush! God Bless Our Troops! God Bless America!"


"I support Bush. I want all of the Hollywood liberal to leave this country"

"Michael Moore is a Socialist idiot and contrary to his delusional thinking he only speaks for as of now about 24% of Americans! And I use the term 'Americans' loosely when referring to those 24%!!"

"I will boycott ANY OF the actors/actresses who openly push their anti-American Pro-saddam agenda! I consider them to be TRAITORS!"

"Michael Moore is a fat, cowardly child molester. This is not a joke."

"Shame on you and My family will not go to the movies unless Hollywood apologizes to the U.S, the troops and the President"

"The hollywood left is an embarrasment to our company. Their films should be banned."

"watched FOX NEWS to keep me updated on the real world"

"It's bad to bash the prsident and not support him-if not treason."

"Those who are dedicated to the destruction of a free society are unfit to live in that same society. Michael Moore is therefore unfit to be an American. He is unfit to live in this country. With luck and God's grace, he'll swing from the end of a rope."

"Pretty tired of watching homosexual movies and the forcing of hetrosexual Actor/Actresses in homosexual roles."

"We now boycott all stars/ musicians, anti-american. anti war"

"Hollywood is completely out of touch with the majority of Americans. If you don't stop making anti-Christian, anti-American, obscene movies, we will boycott! You are only qualified to play make believe, not to give political/military advice."

"I hope the 'entertainers' get the message that knowing their political views detracts from their acting or singing etc. I used to really like Tom Hanks, Susan Sarandon and others, but just can't watch their films anymore because they had to shoot their mouth off! I don't want to know my doctor's political views or anyone else that is doing their job."

"I don't petition Hollywood to do anything, I stopped funding their Marxist agenda long ago and engourage others to do the same. Favorite movie: LOTR, LOTR, LOTR!"

"The Hollywod Left are neo-communists"

"USA: Love it, support it or leave it!"

"The liberal theology/philosophy is relatively new to our American history and. is NOT the foundation on which our country originally grew to become the strong, productuve, and innovative place that it is.. There is a reason that the U.S.A.became such a country in the 1st place. The reason is that American society began by operating according to Scripural principles; whether those following those principles believed in them or not.. Just as with gravity; it works for everyone, whether you believe in gravity or not."

"Americans for Bush, the Flag, Pledge, Israel & God"

"I think what we really need is for Hollywood to make more Christian movies and stop the violence."

"the Hollywood folks have used so many drugs, drank so much alcohol and experimented so much with their fellow wierdos, that they do not or cannot understand how the everyday American lives, works and worships"

"Have you forgotten...? What happened on 9/11, obiously you have, because you are against a war that will prevent another day like 9/11."

"I am all for getting the 'Leftys' to shut the hell up. Ever wonder why there were not this many protestors when Clinton was in office...OH I forgot it was because Republicans go to work and dont have time to go protest."

"you're either with us or against us"

"Hollywood black lists veterans of the armed forces from their industry."

"anything less than respect for the President & our troops is UN-AMERICAN"

"Why are Americans disliked in foreign countries? Might it be because of the view of America and Americans presented by anti-American movies?"

"why don't you all move to iraq-good riddance traitors!!!"

"I welcome the boycott of anti-American socialists in Hollywood"

"I for one will stop going to any movies starring these non-patriotic idiots!"

Are people really this stupid and gullible? I find it so hard to believe… I mean, I get moronic email like this, and I've seen a few people write this junk on their pages here, but I have a lot of trouble believing that a majority of people in an educated (?) first world country could be so ignorant?

The day of the Lord

Well, it's looking more confirmed every day: the US is attacking Syria next, using the claim that “since no weapons of mass destruction were found in Iraq, they must have been moved to Syria at the last minute” (more, more, more, more), and what with the US now also threatening/pressuring Israel (more, more), a nuclear nation with potentially more air power than the US — probably the only nation on the planet to be able to make that claim — things threaten to get very dirty.

The British are starting to pull their troops out of the Gulf (more), and their high-end admirals are going on record by name (not as “anonymous military sources”) to say that the US exaggerated claims of WMDs in order to launch a war (more, more). After all, when the US eventually expands this war to “axis of evil kingpin” Russia (more) and Europe, the UK doesn't really want to be on the losing team.

But who's winnig? ($$$$)

While that “genuinely evil” jackass Rumsfield is cracking jokes about killing and looting (more), the people of Iraq live in more fear and terror than they ever did under Saddam (more) — but apparently “looting is a sign of freedom” (more). The American troops, now passionately hated by the Iraqis (more), are assisting the looters by doing things like executing on the spot storekeepers who defend their shops (more), and not stopping looting of even Iraq's archaeological treasures (more) which will now surely end up in the hands of wealthy private collectors.

This is worth reading.

New World Order

So I'm walking past the TV and I see on the CNN ticker-thing, “COMING UP… NEW WORLD ORDER” OK, now that's one of the more ironicly funny subtitles I've seen in a while so I stuck around to see what it was.

I was actually surprised to see it get serious coverage on CNN, but as you may know, Russia, Germany, and France just finished a meeting which, if they achieve their goals, will unite most of Europe along with most of the former Soviet states and some of the Asian states in a coalition designed to oppose the US on both military and economic levels.

That would not be good.

Add up the populations sizes, GDPs, weapons stockpiles, space programs, manufacturing facilities, and it should be very clear that this type of us-and-them standoff would be about the worst thing that could happen to America right now.

In other news, Amer al-Saadi, the Iraqi government's science advisor surrendered, insisting the whole time that Iraq has no weapons of mass destruction (more). Even though there is absolutely no evidence against him, the US intends to try him as a war criminal and execute him.

In land-of-the-free news, Alabama sex toy laws recently were overturned (so you'd be able to legally own a vibrator), but the government immediately appealed. Someone explain to me how a “free country” that encourages its citizens to own massive amounts of weaponry won't let someone own a vibrator (more).

PS. According to the Guardian/UK, there was no reason for invading Iraq. America just did it to “prove they could” do whatever they wanted… (more)


Here's my recipe… I spent a lot of time eating borscht at Ukranian cafes in Toronto, figured it might be nice to have some now. Anyway, this is just made up so I have no idea if it'll turn out:

  • Cover some beets in water and turn on the stove
  • Toss in a lot of garlic, an onion, a whole carrot, pepper, salt, celery, whatever, zucchini, etc.
  • When it reaches a boil, let it simmer for about half an hour
  • Take out just the beets and the carrot and put them in cold water.
  • Peel the beets, grate all of it.
  • Put the grated stuff back in the soup.
  • Add some lemon and some more water if you want.
  • Eat it an hour later

I have simple tastes. What can I say… I admit though that I'm not so much a fan of cold borscht so I will maybe be cheating a little when I eat it hot…

Oh, and I've been working on the new article for some time next week. It's titled (I'm not kidding), “What 'the Modified' can learn from Satan“. It's actually pretty good, I think people will enjoy it (and yes, you can be a Christian and still “get” the article — no human sacrifice required!).

Uploading update now

Well, the update (a big one) is on its way to the site now… I expect it'll be uncompressed either later tonight or in the morning depending on the whims of the bird. Oh, and if you're wondering, that's oji on the cover.

Anyway, a few more replies to various scammers from Franko… This first fool sent in pictures that actually had the BME logo and the logos of the other sites he'd taken them from still on them. Seriously.

Wow, my nickname is "Van" too! They call me that because I live in a van down by the river. Anyway, when I get the van running (it's such a heap of crap), I'll be sure to drive right on over to the password store and pick one -- maybe two -- up for you.

Where should I mail it? Because you sent so many of your fine pictures we will forgo the normal shipping charges.

It will ship in a standard cargo crate, approximately 400 feet on all twelve sides with additional storage in subspace. To access it you will need a Creation Matrix or similar device -- Animorph junk won't cut it -- but I assume that's not a problem.

This next person sent me a tired old porn shot that's been submitted a million times. Hint: if the ripped off photo you're sending was clearly done at a pro-studio (ie. professional photographer that understand lighting, etc.) and you have long nails with white tips, I'll probably notice.

>Here is my can I get a membership?

Thank you so much for your picture. I've added it to the site and have already spent many hours personally admiring it.

Unfortunately it will be some time before I can get a membership to you since we're all out of passwords -- we've literally used every word in the dictionary, and it just wouldn't be right to make up words.

When the 2004 dictionaries are released (probably in about 10 months from now), keep your fingers crossed. If any new words become available you are currently 1,832nd in line for a password.

This next person sent in a pic I'm 95% sure is ripped off, but claiming to be a girl and keeping a guy's name and “haggardasfuck” as your email address is kind of a tip-off that you might not be quite who you say you are, superstar!

Well, I'm going to go cook some borscht now (like a good little commie I'm sure some of you are thinking). No, I'm not joking, I actually really like borscht and really am going to make some.
