Mary Tyler Moore, RIP

25 01 2017



She was known for comedy acting, and well known as Lucille Ball’s protege.

But particularly noteworthy in her career was this non-comedy role, co-starring role along side Donald Sutherland in the drama that won the Best Picture Oscar for 1980, which was saying a lot because that year was a great one for movies.  And for good reason:  Ordinary People just does it for me because it’s two things:  One, dramatic involving family matters and women to some extent without being notably feminine, and two, borderline Shakespearean in plot.

The red envelope company has it DVD-only.


Naked City

28 12 2016


The First 48 to film SLPD Homicide starting next month.

For the longest, SLPD brass has been adamant about not wanting to be part of real life cop shows, and they were especially adamant about never wanting to be on COPS.

I wonder what’s behind the sudden about-face.

Probably money.

Sensationality Show

26 12 2016

New York

Just before Christmas, I was digesting some of the SJW outrage that A&E was going to run a Klan “reality” show.  SJWs are many things, but sociopolitically sophisticated is not one of them.  Not a one of them was sophisticated enough or had the sense or cynicism enough to consider the possibility (i.e. the reality, as you will find out in a moment) that I figured out off top, that the whole thing is a paid actor-driven smokescreen to help raise money for the paranoia-industrial complex.

Here I go with my victory lap:

“Our goal with this series has always been to expose and combat racism and hatred in all its forms,” the network said in a statement. “However, A&E learned last night from the third-party producers who made the documentary that cash payments — which we currently understand to be nominal — were made in the field to some participants in order to facilitate access. While we stand behind the intent of the series and the seriousness of the content, these payments are a direct violation of A&E’s policies and practices for a documentary. We had previously provided assurances to the public and to our core partners — including the Anti-Defamation League and Color of Change — that no payment was made to hate group members, and we believed that to be the case at the time. We have now decided not to move forward with airing this project.”

Emphasis mine.

This same network had something of the same purpose in mind when it started Duck Dynasty.  It wanted to make fun of rural Southern working class whites, but the whole thing blew up in their faces.

“First Latina”

25 09 2016


Find out about the naughty intersectional things she did to rent asunder the progressivetard stack.

And by the way, “Latina?”  Looks to me to be a white woman with a Spanish language surname.  When it comes to the official presentation of Hispanics and Latinos in the United States, we seem to get a lot of that.

Also, SNL should worry more about actual comedy than social justice; it hasn’t been much funny in years.  Though maybe I just answered my own question.

That’s What I’m Talking About

21 09 2016

Guess what the theme of the upcoming season of Survivor, which debuts tonight, is about.

“Using only the raw materials found on this island, your task is to brew a barrel of craft beer.”

Take heed, Millennial.  This will be a brief taste of what’s to come when your helicopter parents can no longer protect you from our cynical ravages.

There was a rumor that Survivor was going to do a season broken down along race.  Since that was too hot to touch, then breaking off on generational lines is much safer.

Monetizing Mo’ne

11 08 2016

Los Angeles


The irony is that the real Mo’ne Davis herself, even at the age of 13 playing in the LLWS, had enough foresight to know that her competitive baseball career was living on borrowed time, that once they hit puberty, the boys will all of a sudden start throwing a lot harder, while she won’t, therefore her future athletic ambition is in basketball and specifically the University of Connecticut.

I’d like to predict that this will be a ratings bust.  But then again, it involves a black woman as the central character, and when you’re dealing with black women audiences, they really have a way of surprising everyone.  See:  Scandal, Blackish, Empire, Real Housewives, Basketball Wives, Diary of a Mad Black Woman, and the Tyler Perry movies.  If Pitch isn’t counterprogrammed against another black women favored show, I bet they’ll made it appointment viewing.  Especially if, considering the promo poster above is any hint, sexual innuendo between her white teammates and her is a recurring theme.  Which is why BW love Scandal.

Anton Yelchin Joins the 27 Club

Read all about it.

Even though, statistically speaking, there is no 27 Club, it is an interesting coincidence and curiosity.

And to ease your troubled mind, Adele turned 28 last month.
