Fuck the BP criminals and their enablers.
Thankfully the term “bromance” wasn’t around 15 years ago when this godawful frat boy anthem was released. The Chris Berman cameo in the video only makes it worse.
What else: Socialism. A former top aide to W. explains:
Think about it. Soccer is the only sport in the world where you cannot use the one tool that distinguishes man from beast: opposable thumbs. “No hands” is a rule only a European statist could love. (In fact, with the web of high taxes and regulations that tie the hands of European entrepreneurs, “no hands” kind of describes their economic theories as well.) …
EVERYTHING is political. Depressing. And ridiculous.
“[Chris Brown] needs to be forgiven,” said Queen Latifah. “Enough already. We can’t keep beating him up. She’s going to grow and he’s going to grow and we have to allow them both to do that.”
So it was a learning experience … interesting. I’ve learned never to trust weepy narcissists who beat up women.
An “insider” says he used eyedrops for his recent onstage sob-fest.
If Michael Bay had even less talent and more arrogance, he’d be M. Night Shyamalan.
I must recommend The Lady in the Lake (2006), if only to witness the Xerxes-like hubris to which a highly ambitious man can fall prey. Tortured in its gestation – Disney, recognising the weaknesses in the script, declined this time to participate, leading to an acrimonious and unusually public split between the filmmaker and the studio that had nurtured him for almost a decade – it’s also gauche and banal in execution. In it, though, Shyamalan takes it upon himself to play an under-appreciated writer, an unacknowledged legislator of the world, whose stories could save humanity . . . if only people would listen! (A young boy, he is told, “will become leader of this country and begin a movement of great change, [and] your book will be the seeds of many of his great thoughts. They will be the seeds of change.”)
He’s back with another abomination, “The Last Airbender,” panned by many of the same critics who foolishly compared Shyamalan to Hitchcock after the release of his wildly overrated thriller, “A Sixth Sense.”
“The Last Airbender” is an agonizing experience in every category I can think of and others still waiting to be invented. The laws of chance suggest that something should have gone right. Not here.
In fact, if there is anything that is intended to resonate with adults, at least parents of the New Age persuasion, it is the philosophical truisms that dot the dialogue, lines like “water teaches us acceptance,” “you must let anger go,” “there is no love without sacrifice” and the ever-popular, “is there a spiritual place where I can meditate?”
Stay angry. Don’t let up on the corrupt fiends who run BP or the feckless bureaucrats who continue to fiddle as the Gulf burns. And don’t excuse the spineless patsies who defend the criminals or their enablers.
