Kudos on the McChrystal article, but Jann Wenner’s print celebration of all things plastic is far from hip. Matt Taibbi’s snide dispatches rarely impress, and movie “critic” Peter Travers is a eager whore. *MIAMI VICE: “If you’re looking for a crime story that sizzles with action, sex and the visceral jolt of life on the … Continue reading Get over yourself, Rolling Stone
Has the Obama Administration moved on, now that the media has begun to lose interest?
A conservative Virginia blogger, sympathetic to the cause, was nonetheless booted from a right-wing pep rally Monday night once Coach Palin took to the mic. So much for transparency. Palin’s fans, who don’t require a filter (hey, just like Hitler supporters), maintain their allegiance. Annieflies says: June 27, 2010 at 9:13 pm Well it is … Continue reading ‘Freedom Fest,’ minus freedom of the press
Naturally he makes the Hitler/Obama comparison — “Somebody had to say this,” he boasts. Uh, no they didn’t, you militaristic moron.
Women seem as forgiving, if not more so, of the punk-ass bitch after his “comeback” performance Sunday night at the BET Awards. I trust these women have never been the victim of domestic violence — a problem that has not subsided, mainly because we live in a society too eager to absolve the unpardonable. More … Continue reading A final word on Chris Brown
News flash: Sarah Palin is a total fucking idiot. “Students who spent their valuable, precious time diving through dumpsters before this event in order to silence someone … what a wasted resource,” she told the crowd dining in the campus cafeteria. No one was trying to silence her; rather, they wanted to know why a … Continue reading Guess who’s playing the victim again?
Depressing results from an Entertainment Weekly poll: Was Chris Brown’s Michael Jackson tribute appropriate? Yes 72% (1,931 votes) No 28% (744 votes) Total Votes: 2,675 Andisheh summed it up best: Man who beat his girlfriend offers heartfelt tribute to man who molested children.
Woody Allen’s favorite Woody Allen movies? Purple Rose of Cairo, Match Point, Bullets Over Broadway, Zelig, Husbands and Wives, and Vicky Cristina Barcelona. WTF? “Zelig” is an underrated gem, and “Bullets” a clever diversion, but “Vicky Cristina Barecelona” is a a pretentious pile of shit — one of three Woody Allen movies I walked out … Continue reading At least he didn’t list ‘Celebrity’
Fundamentalist conservative Rick Santorum, who once compared homosexuality to incest and beastiality, said Barack Obama “doesn’t identify with the average American because of his own background. Indonesia and Hawaii. His view is from the viewpoint of academics and the halls of the Ivy league schools that he went to and it’s not a love of … Continue reading Santorum: Hawaii is not a state
Naturally the handjob media is playing along, applauding Chris Brown’s crocodile tears during his “emotional tribute” to Michael Jackson at the BET Awards. Then, as Brown grabbed a microphone to sing “Man in the Mirror,” he broke down in tears. His voice cracked, he couldn’t sing, and at one point he crumpled to the stage … Continue reading The rehabilitation of a woman-beating punk
In honor of the weekend that was Pride (everywhere but in Atlanta), enjoy this TBSW? flashback: First of all, I lost my job as diversity coordinator at Diversity Today, the magazine for professionals in the diversity field. It was so unfair. No one’s been hit harder by this stupid recession than me! Fortunately, I’ve been … Continue reading The Blogosphere Says What? (Get your pride on, bitch! edition)
So I have a weakness for Petula Clark. What, you got something to say? Wanna go? Alright then. And yes, I also enjoy a little Lulu. (Speaking of Lulu, the Malcontent once received props from Hee Haw’s Lulu Roman — an endorsement I claim with pride.)
Fortunately I’m friends with the five (maybe six) people who find the idea of Michael McDonald covering this Cher artifact amusing. It’s not that funny unless you sing along in Michael McDonald voice.
This plaintive dirge, featured in a ubiquitous credit card commercial a few years back, was difficult to avoid. Sounds like something that came from the 90s, though it was released just four years ago, which makes it suck even harder.
Actual comments lifted from YouTube regarding the theme song to “Friends,” included in my countdown of the Most Annoying Songs Ever: sparkyinbath 2 weeks ago Brillaint video and a brilliant song.
