Random Thoughts: Lecturing on Racism, Whining, and Movie Lengths

Posted on December 5, 2013 10:01 am

It must be really depressing listening to that “Chesnuts Roasting on an Open Fire” song after you’ve just turned 93.

We have to force our beliefs on the religious so they won’t force their beliefs on us.

No trust remains that the left cares about racism beyond its political advantage to them.

So, please, liberals, stop lecturing on racism. No conservative believes it’s anything other than posturing anymore.

Are we talking about making income equality within America or within the whole world? I don’t think I can live on $12k a year.

“This is no time for the people of Alderaan to be without a planet.” -Grand Moff Tarkin

This is no time for America to be without warships.” -General Tojo

If we were smart, any time the government asked how things are, we’d say, “Everything’s great!” so it wouldn’t try to fix things.

If you live America, you already won the life lottery. If you whine about someone having more than you, you should be punched in the face.

Any American whining about someone having more is basically a millionaire whining about unfair it is someone else has billions.

Life is unfair. And if you live in America, it’s unfair in your favor. Mediocrity is rewarded with gross sums of money here.

I have a brand new thing to be angry about: My wife watching Christmas romance movies under my profile on Netflix.

Now I have my Breaking Bad I’m watching surrounded by Netflix suggestions like “12 Dates of Christmas” and “Desperately Seeking Santa.”

Wonder Woman too? This next Superman movie is starting to sound a little too busy.

People should have me write movies — but only if you think people would like awesome movies with no boring parts.

Why do they leave boring parts in movies? Boring is not that hard to identify. Find it and get rid of it.

Little tip: If your movie is over ninety minutes, it most likely has lots of boring parts in need of cutting.

The second transformers movie was two and half hours. Was there not a single sane person at Paramount who questioned that?

Pacific Rim, robots punching monsters, was 2h 12m. Didn’t need to watch it to know it had lots of unnecessary plot to cut.

Movies are just way too long these days. It’s like all the editors died or something.

So who was the first chef to use sodium bisulfite?

    I bet the movie length thing is like the book length thing: publishers seem convinced that the public feels it’s getting more for its money when the book is inflated by a couple hundred pages. Perhaps because the public is actually that stupid, but I hope not. Though they did reelect Dear Leader, so they might be. Though I suspect most of the dumbasses who voted twice for an empty suit actually read much, so maybe not.

    Where was I? Oh. So maybe studios are thinking the same way, and justifying the insane prices for movie tickets by 45 min. of visual lard.

    Agreed. I think the growing movie running time gap is the defining challenge of our time.

    Heh, heh. I remember Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves being discussed for breaking the length barrier. (It’s the circa 1992 one with Kevin Coster.) I remember it as being fun; I saw it twice. Well, okay, the second time I brought a date, but it’s still pretty good.

    A couple of years ago, around Christmas, I realized that my Grandpa just turned 93, and my cousin just had a kid, so neither of them were in the 1 – 92 age bracket. I thought the song was kind of unfair, as they were probably the ones most in need of a Merry Christmas.

    Just for the recoord, a couple can live on $12-13K a year. Not well, mind you, but it can be done.

    Wonder Woman doesn’t have her own movie because Hollywood is sexist. And if she wants to catch an evil villain she has to fly her plane to the nearest airport, take a taxi to find the guy and then try to lasso him. However, she can gut and clean Aquaman in less than a minute. But then again… who can’t?
