They are too crazy. Even for the Republican Party.

Posted in: Hamas says Israeli PM trying to derail Gaza truce deal See in context

This is Netanyahu's ship to go down with. Israel has become an international pariah state much like white South Africa in the 80's.

Musk has spent his whole life desperately searching for fools that didn't see him as a spoilt weirdo. I guess he's found them.

Posted in: Yes, efforts to eliminate DEI programs are rooted in racism See in context

But it does mean that people with the most negative racial attitudes are, on average, most opposed to DEI training.

Love this guy

One wonders wha ....

"Peoples' political lives depend on him. He has surfed populism, his candidates now tend to be conspiracy theory wackos. It is not the same party of 20 years ago."

Posted in: Agency admits two more Johnny's employees committed sexual abuse See in context

It is worth considering the Japanese public don't actually care about sexual abuse. Smile-Up group Travis Japan are in at no.2 in this weeks Billboard top 40.

Britain's Daily Mail tabloid also lashed out, asking: "How do all those vile online trolls feel now?"

The bitter irony.

military drone strikes launched on U.S. citizens

Judging by the physical state of 'patriot militias' that will be like shooting fish in a barrel. Who will weight-averse Hollywood cast ?

John Candy died years ago so that only leaves Steven Seagal.

Anywhere they miraculously grow around that which we would rather hide. The road to my cities' medical waste incinerator is something to behold. A perfect place for a picnic.

Bit disrespectful of the 2nd guy in the line there, turning up in his gardening wellies.....

Yes, the photo really does raise an important question.

Where does an unemployed, single man go to buy footwear that both complements the uniform their mother made and reflects the sincerity of their mimicry ?

From the order of our noble sentries it would seem ABC Mart, Nafco, Nafco and Aoyama meet the sartorial requirements.

The whole thing was so badly thought out and executed it was obvious she was sent out to take a hit instead of the rancid cowards with any so-called authority in the GOP.

What a sad reflection of the world we live in. It's heartbreaking that this is necessary.

I have always thought the same. What self-respecting girl wants to be the frilly sideshow to the mens' event ?

Posted in: DeSantis calls takeover of Disney government a 'success' despite worker exodus, litigation See in context

One of the appointees, Bridget Ziegler, a co-founder of Moms for Liberty, has been called out for hypocrisy after admitting to a sexual relationship with her husband and another woman, even though the Zieglers very publicly have fought against LGBTQ+ rights.

She is anti-LGBTQ until she isn't. Usual hypocritical conservative.

Great news. There is hardly anything known about this unpopular but seminal group. I hope they can do the same for Bucks Fizz.

Naked Lunch

All adaptations from best-selling novels. Deeply revealing.

W/O John, nobody would know who Yoko is

Obviously John Lennon knew more about art than most Beatles fans.

I'd wager 99.9% of the population couldn't name a single song Bayosay made other than "Put a ring on my finger"

If you mean 99.9% of over 50's men you might win a dollar.

She "got there" because she was hand-picked by the media industry.

That is how the entire industry works. You know the music you know because a cast of thousands of industry people put them within your earshot.

I don't usually agree with bass but the numbers don't lie. She is right and you are so tragically wrong.

Posted in: Ukraine-born Miss Japan relinquishes crown after reported affair See in context

People commenting on her looks have obviously never browsed a fashion magazine here. Japanese go crazy for this type of girl. If she was wearing a Breton top, a beanie and glasses (think Where's Wally ?) they have a meltdown.

systematic belittling of women, as well as a focus on their physical appearance.

This might have made the film more interesting. Good Lord it was a drudge. Ridley Scott hasn't made a good movie since Gladiator.

Posted in: Will an earlier Oscars broadcast attract more viewers? ABC plans to try the 7 p.m. slot in 2024 See in context

I can sort of understand the attraction of industry awards events for those involved within the industry. It's a little bit of razz to look forward to and network.

As much as I enjoy cinema, however, I don't think it is necessary for the layman to be involved. Other than the purely technical categories, the nominations are subjective and prone to political / social horsetrading which triggers certain types.

None of us can state with any confidence which is the best movie / band / painting / photo.

Just make them online PPV.

Musk, the most unliked boy at school, thought he could buy the popular part of the playground, then wondered why nobody went there anymore.

Posted in: Who are some musicians you used to love listening to but no longer find them interesting? See in context

Most of them.

I think a more interesting question would be 'Which artist has sustained your interest throughout their career ?'

It narrows the field somewhat.

Nick Cave, Peter Gabriel, Bjork, Kool Keith off the top of my head.
