SoNowThen is apparently not allowed to have his own opinion on what he finds attractive in the opposite sex.


And as to LVT, he makes good movies, none of you know him in real life, so who cares if he's an asshole or not? You can't tell from a few interviews how someone conducts their personal life, nor should you care.
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

Of course he is allowed that (who has the capacity/power to "disallow" it??)... but he's also encouraged to know when it's just not relevant. I personally think it's tiresome to have things devolve into "who's hot/hotter/hottest or not?" contests, particularly here; it's cool to say, "Oh that person's really attractive," but why do you have to rag on what other people find hot, merely because you don't happen to? Isn't that a TV show with pathetic Lorenzo Lamas? Isn't it like, the dregs of all popular culture? It's really the lowest form of discourse- it's proof you're keeping your brain between your legs.
""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

Stay informed on protecting your freedom of speech and civil rights.

Glancing at recent history, one would see that I simply said HS looked good in a picture, and then was promptly labelled a "she-male lover" and being "under the influence of gay fashion designers". Both funny comments, yes, but don't make me out to be the Bad Guy here, when all I did was offer a simple opinion.

Just watched Dancer In The Dark again. I think this movie has one of the most perfect "sounding" openings ever. That overture is just spectacular. Still looking for an element of crime dvd, but I can never find it and end up buying something else. Oh well.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

Did I miss the thread for Kingdom Hospital?

Has Lars spoken of this at all?  Is he happy with the results?  How's he taking the ads that say "From the mind of Stephen King"?

Aw, man!  Kingdom Hospital's theme song isn't as cool as the original's.  And the opening credit sequence was pilfered from "Six Feet Under" big time!

The ads, which looked only somewhat cool, suggested that this new version is very far removed from the original. I take it from Hacksparrow's comment that it's already started, so I'll probably miss it--but I'm curious as to how it is.

Not very good.

I'm a fan of Stephen King but two things are bringing this down: 1) the director is showing creepy things but managing to not make it scary; and 2) King is trying too hard to out-weird Lars and it's just not working.

Stick to the original miniseries.

Lars, as you so fondly refer to him as, is the executive producer...

And if Danny Glover thought he had a hard time catching a cab in New York...
