I’m shocked, shocked to hear that Bryan Singer, director of Kevin Spacey’s The Usual Suspects, the extremely metaphorical-sounding Apt Pupil, and several X-Men films, is having trouble. From the Hollywood Reporter:

Bryan Singer Fired From Directing Queen Biopic After On-Set Chaos (Exclusive)

DECEMBER 04, 2017 1:56pm PT by Borys Kit , Kim Masters

Bryan Singer has been fired from the movie Bohemian Rhapsody, 20th Century Fox has told The Hollywood Reporter. …

The decision reflected an escalating clash between Singer and actor Rami Malek and was caused by the helmer being missing from the set, necessitating the Dec. 1 production shutdown of the film in which Malek stars as Freddie Mercury, frontman of the rock group Queen. The pic has been shooting in London. …

But then Singer did not return to the set after the Thanksgiving break and is believed to have been in the U.S. for about the last 10 days, according to one source. … Singer’s prolonged absence was the final straw, and so the studio decided to terminate him under his pay-or-play contract.

According to another insider, Singer has claimed he is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder because of the tensions on the set.

Comedian Matt Oswalt tweeted:

  1. Singer has claimed he is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder because of the tensions on the set.

    What, Rami Malek rebuffed his sodomistical advances?

    Speaking of Rami Malek, I thought he was quite good in the underrated The Pacific, HBO’s Pacific-theater follow up to Band of Brothers.

    I don't know whether I should say this, but I share a surname with Malek's Pacific character, though we have different ethnic backgrounds. Which made him stick in my head.

    There was something catchy about him. Superficially a weirdo, softer underneath. But apart from that, his relationship with the main character, "Sledgehammer," made that part of the show. I liked their storyline much better than the other two main characters'.

    As it happens, I didn't read Sledgehammer's memoirs--With the Old, Breed--until after I saw the show. But I had read an essay (or speech, maybe) of his from an antiwar anthology whose name escapes me.

    Similarly, I hadn't (and still haven't) read other main character Robert Leckie's memoir Helmet for my pillow. I was surprised, however, to discover I had read his Revolutionary War history: George Washington's War.

    Jimbo Fisher, fresh off covering up a couple of rapes by Jameis Winston, has now arrived at Texas A&M to the tune of a $75 million dollar contract.

    Is there any way to pressure the administration into preventing him from recruiting the most criminal players he can in search of a national championship? I ask because I go to school here, and there hasn’t been a peep in any student or official media about the 2 settlements involving Jimbo before he arrived.

    Get your local SJW student newspaper interested in a story: "University Brings Rape Enabler to Campus, Pays Him $75m".

    Use them for a good purpose for once.

    Of course, it would be fittingly ironic if the one time they have a genuine rape culture to write about, they decide to pass. Worth a shot, though.

    Or maybe there aren't any SJWs in Texas?

    Here is a cause you should consider:

    Promoting the abolition of the American Football and substituting rugby. Rugby is a much better game played by much better men. It's rough, but much safer than American football as only the man with the ball is tackled/played.

    Most players play bare headed, some wear a small leather head protector - the key difference is that rugby players don't use their head as a battering ram to head butt opponents with a hard plastic/near steel helmet they way it is done in American football.

    American football and American basketball are the only two sports dominated by Black thug/rapists.

    Presenter Reggie Yates will not host this year’s Top of the Pops holiday specials after making “ill-considered remarks” in a podcast interview.

    Yates apologised last month for using the phrase “fat Jewish guy” to refer to managers in the music industry.

    In the interview, he said: “The thing that makes it great about this new generation of (music) artists is that they ain’t signing to majors.

    “They’re independent, they’re not managed by some random fat Jewish guy from north west London, they’re managed by their brethren.”

  11. It’s too late to come for Allen Ginsberg.

    Whatever else you might think of William Pierce, his essay on Allen Ginsberg stands as an astonishing indictment of someone who openly and without any attempt at subterfuge or cover practiced clearly illegal pederasty for decades and never got bothered for it.

    FWIW I met Ginsberg, at a Lawrence, Kansas affair some 30 years ago. He was perfectly cordial and well behaved to me-probably because I was well past the age he fancied . His long time boyfriend's assistant, a huge man named James Grauerholtz, was pretty rude though.
    , @Bill B.

    It’s too late to come for Allen Ginsberg.
     
    Andrea Dworkin's memoir, Heartbreak:

    On the day of the bar mitzvah newspapers reported in huge headlines that the Supreme Court had ruled child pornography illegal. I was thrilled. I knew that Allen would not be. I did think he was a civil libertarian. But in fact, he was a pedophile. He did not belong to the North American ManBoy Love Association out of some mad, abstract conviction that its voice had to be heard. He meant it. I take this from what Allen said directly to me, not from some inference I made. He was exceptionally aggressive about his right to fuck children and his constant pursuit of underage boys. I did everything I could to avoid Allen and to avoid conflict. This was my godson’s day. He did not need a political struggle to the death breaking out all over. Ginsberg would not leave me alone. He followed me everywhere I went from the lobby of the hotel through the whole reception, then during the dinner. He photographed me constantly with a vicious little camera he wore around his neck. He sat next to me and wanted to know details of sexual abuse I had suffered. A lovely woman, not knowing that his interest was entirely pornographic, told a terrible story of being molested by a neighbor. He ignored her. She had thought, “This is Allen Ginsberg, the great beat poet and a prince of empathy.” Wrong. Ginsberg told me that he had never met an intelligent person who had the ideas I did. I told him he didn’t get around enough. He pointed to the friends of my godson and said they were old enough to fuck. They were 12 and 13. He said that all sex was good, including forced sex. I am good at getting rid of men, strictly in the above-board sense. I couldn’t get rid of Allen. Finally I had had it. Referring back to the Supreme Court’s decision banning child pornography he said, “The right wants to put me in jail.” I said, “Yes, they’re very sentimental; I’d kill you.” The next day he’d point at me in crowded rooms and screech, “She wants to put me in jail.” I’d say, “No, Allen, you still don’t get it. The right wants to put you in jail. I want you dead.” He told everyone his fucked-up version of the story (“You want to put me in jail”) for years. When he died he stopped.

    Just completed reading the William S. Burroughs bio “Call me Burroughs” from the library. Mainly recognise the name from it being branded about by David Bowie/Kurt Cobain as the main influence on their enigmatic cutup lyrics. There are excerpts from B's truly vile letters to Ginsberg detailing his gay sex tourism in the middle east and G replying with his own sick tales in the states. The two of them should have been locked up.

    OT, lots of huge news tonight: an unknown Swedish Daniel Ellsberg has leaked crime statistics, which the Swedish government had been keeping secret. These statistics vindicate the so-called “racists,” and rubbish the claims that white Swedes or reclassification were to blame for the increase in crime. “Non-Swedes” are responsible for over half of gang rape despite being just over ten per cent of the population (where have we seen that proportion before?). Even worse are the penalties. It is normal to get hours of community service for “aggravated rape.”
    The government is responding by attempting to shut down the web site.

    Via google translate here is one of the Swedish cases. A Somalian citizen was the rapist. He got two years and a fine he will never pay. If this Somalian had obtained Swedish citizenship, his raping (and his son's) would be described as done by a Swede.

    See also the related https://pjjonasson.wordpress.com/2017/10/23/ny-undersokning-om-utlanningar-och-sexualbrott/

    Some conclusions translated into broken english:

    A survey of almost all convictions for sexual crimes 2012-2017 shows that:
    ...
    • Men with overseas descent commit 84% of first degree rape. Swedes come first in fourth place, after Afghans, Iraqis and Somalis.
    • Two out of three serious rapes are committed by asylum seekers or men who have been granted residence permits.
    • National groups with the highest factor (probability) commit gross rape are Algerian, Afghan, Tunisian, Moroccans and Palestinian Territories.
    • 95.6% of assault violence is committed by men of foreign descent.
    • Most assault violence in individuals is committed by Somali, Eritrean, Algerian, Iraqi and Gambian.
    ...
    • 90% of group violence is committed by men of overseas descent. Every fourth rapist who acted as a group is Afghan.
    ...
    • Foreigners sexually assault victims of Swedish origin to a much greater extent than they do other foreigners.
    ...
    • Homosexuals' share of total rape has risen sharply in recent years, while group rape against men is now the most common category.
    • 85% of those convicted of group violence against men are Afghans.
    ...

     

    Raw data (court cases) available for download, though I suppose you need to read Swedish.

    This has been validated and published by a "real" newspaper called the Friatider, which I remember seeing before, reporting totally unrelated stuff years ago. This newspaper is now being sued because of the leak. It has not been ordered to take the information down -- their report is still up. This is consistent with this being a real leak and not a hoax. Unfortunately it's in Swedish. The other reports are all alternative media. Almost all mainstream media in Sweden is literally owned by one family.

    There's at least one case where a man listed as being from "Finland" has an unmistakeably Muslim name. These are convictions of individuals who probably had strong cases against them. Part of the selling point of Taharrush is to create a blur which protects the individual participant from being properly identified, like the wave of black flash crowd lootings that happened here a few years ago. So this is the lowest possible ball and it repesents a doubling of the rate of gang rape.

    Would love to see Singer buckle and break and find a nice comfy cell somewhere, in either a straightjacket or an orange jumpsuit, assuming they find some crimes on him.

    His X-Men films have been atrocious, I really can’t believe they’ve lasted so long and haven’t completely bombed. And those pictures of his gay orgies are disgusting even in the PG-13 format I’ve seen them. All in all, the man has produced trash and lived trashy.

    I saw him shopping for groceries with a teenaged boy at the local Safeway supermarket in Boulder, Colorado. On an earlier occasion, he was crossing a street and I was standing on the corner.

    He wasn't all bad, though. I briefly published a "zine" there. At the same time, he was teaching a writing class at the Naropa Institute. On a lark, I walked into their lobby and slipped a note into his box, letting him know about my magazine and asking for writing submissions from his students.

    There are a ton of people who could be described in those terms, but they are heavily over-represented by one religio-ethnic group. Their outsize role in liberalizing sexual morality is partly explained (openly, by them) in terms of hoping to eliminate these occasional "embarassments." Their ability to escape justice becomes an issue, as in the Leo Frank lynching: a certainty is created that normal channels cannot be trusted.
    It is very interesting nevertheless to watch the Jack Kerouac episode of Firing Line knowing what we know now about his friend. The show is mainly remembered because Kerouac flatly rejected protest and activism as legitimate activities, saying that the hippies should not break the law, and should propagate their ideas through beautiful art rather than fighting cops. But at the start he is rather pointedly and unmistakeably disrespectful to Ginsberg, who is shown at the back of the studio audience, and Kerouac never explains this behavior. It could be a way to signal to the public that the writers were no longer on the same terms without explaining why, which would be the done thing at the time.

    I was at Naropa back in '76. More to the point, Grauerholz was Burroughs "assistant," and not really physically huge or intimidating; you must have mixed up the name.

    How should I try to confirm these Swedish crime stats are legit?

    This has been validated and published by a “real” newspaper called the Friatider, which I remember seeing before, reporting totally unrelated stuff years ago. This newspaper is now being sued because of the leak. It has not been ordered to take the information down — their report is still up. This is consistent with this being a real leak and not a hoax. Unfortunately it’s in Swedish. The other reports are all alternative media. Almost all mainstream media in Sweden is literally owned by one family.

    A lot of papers in small-to-mid-size american cities are owned by Advance Publications Inc., founded and still owned by the Newhouse family:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advance_Publications

    After WWII, they started buying up papers in small cities in the midwest and southeast. They'd lower their prices to drive competing papers out of business. Then, when they held a monopoly in that market, they'd jack up the ad-rates. Newspapers were the primary form of advertising for a lot of businesses, and a profitable business up through the eighties or nineties. The internet is of course destroying their business model.

    In terms of their editorial stance and political outlook, they were like little New York Times, markedly to the left of local polticial opinion, and significant organs of left-wing propaganda in the heartland. So, when people say that even the local paper has taken this or that opinion, as if to imply that it must therefore be a reasonable, level-headed opinion, one should be aware of what they really believe. That ostensibly moderate-to-conservative local paper is, quite possibly, really a liberal New York paper at heart.

    Bryan Singer can be a competent film director. Obviously, The Usual Suspects was a highly entertaining and original caper-movie (despite, in the end, making no sense at all). I thought Valkyrie was also a pretty good movie. It was an interesting choice of topics too. The director, Singer, and the film’s star, Cruise, are both prominent scientologists. Germany has tried to suppress Scientology for some time. It was almost as if they made the movie as a love-letter to Germany to get them to pull the heat off of the CoS.

    Kerouac was kind of an outlier in that crowd, being from a working-class French-Canadian Catholic background that he never really separated from. He was kind of like Ken Kesey that way, only Kesey's roots were midwestern, transplanted to Oregon, and in the ranching and dairy business. They didn't do the in-you-face shock value stuff others did, and both expressed that it wasn't a good thing. Kerouac was disillusioned by the 1968 Chicago protests; he said, "We're just giving people new reasons to be spiteful." Kesey also ended up disillusioned with "the movement" and would shoo away hippies who sought him out as some kind of guru.

    What, Rami Malek rebuffed his sodomistical advances?

    Speaking of Rami Malek, I thought he was quite good in the underrated The Pacific, HBO's Pacific-theater follow up to Band of Brothers.

    I don’t know whether I should say this, but I share a surname with Malek’s Pacific character, though we have different ethnic backgrounds. Which made him stick in my head.

    There was something catchy about him. Superficially a weirdo, softer underneath. But apart from that, his relationship with the main character, “Sledgehammer,” made that part of the show. I liked their storyline much better than the other two main characters’.

    As it happens, I didn’t read Sledgehammer’s memoirs–With the Old, Breed–until after I saw the show. But I had read an essay (or speech, maybe) of his from an antiwar anthology whose name escapes me.

    Similarly, I hadn’t (and still haven’t) read other main character Robert Leckie’s memoir Helmet for my pillow. I was surprised, however, to discover I had read his Revolutionary War history: George Washington’s War.

    ‘Course, “Bohemian Rhapsody” was a very Queen-y title at one point. But it’s as familiar as Coca-Cola and as exciting as oatmeal by now.

    Also, naming musical biopics after the musician’s most famous work is boring. I was recently watching Rhapsody in Blue, which was a George Gershwin biopic, with occasional Ira. That movie is from 1945. This Freddie Mercury title is about as cutting edge.

    It wouldn’t be hard to use the same idea, only pick something slightly less familiar. Like:

    Made in Heaven
    Who Wants to Live Forever?

    Stone Cold Crazy

    The practice of the casting couch, for women or men, obviously
    didn’t begin yesterday. Every day at 4 pm a new starlet was supplied

    Monroe, based on her memoir, was treated similarly, at least
    at the beginning of her career. Even earlier, Betty Davis famously
    said that to advance her career, Joan Crawford (1904-1977) “slept
    with every male star at MGM except Lassie.”

    In my recent posts I said that it’s very likely that the practice
    of the casting couch was brought to the U.S. from Eastern
    Europe where girls were recruited and groomed to work in
    the local vice industries such as bordellos. Let’s not forget that many
    founders of the U.S. movie industry came from Poland and
    Ukraine, areas that were heavily Jewish. Sam Warner (1887-1927),
    for example, was born in a village north of Warsaw, not far from
    the town where Ben-Gurion, founder of Israel, was born. Samuel
    Goldwyn (1879-1974) was born in Warsaw. Louis B. Mayer (1884-1957)
    was born near Kiev in a similar Slavic region.

You will be harassed to cite references proving the obvious facts you just innocently described. Then you will receive replies with their own citations that pretend to disprove you but actually don't.

    Hooray for your observation. It is good enough to stand alone in its truth. No need to prove it any more than it proves itself. It is self-evident, you see. A certain brand of obnoxious perverts brought grooming and the bordello to Hollywood. This stands alone as truth, no matter what anyone else has done, or what anyone else will say to you now.

    This reminds me of a very interesting article I read recently. There is a small town on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic called Sosua, which has a nice beach, but is renowned as a center for prostitution and sex tourism.

    Sosua was founded as a home for Jews escaping from the holocaust and taken in by the Dominican government in the hope that they would develop agriculture and in the area. The the Dominican Republic Settlement Association gave farmers a mule, a horse, 10 cows and 75 acres of land. There is a small Jewish museum in the town and some of the local business are still run by descendants of the immigrants and their families. It all seems very charming and bucolic and a testament to the human spirit and all that.

    However a local historian did some research in the area and came to the surprising conclusion that the origins of the town becoming a sex center lay in there being a preponderance of young single Jewish men among the migrants, and the bordellos having sprung up at the other end of the beach in Charamicos to meet their needs.

    You insinuate that the Jews brought the process of grooming starlets, and those who hoped to become starlets, to Hollywood, but you’re all over the place. (And your allies completely miss your mistakes.)

    You attack three different types:

    Darryl Zanuck

    Founding Jewish movie moguls, who “came from Poland and
    Ukraine, areas that were heavily Jewish.”

    “in a similar Slavic region.”

    Darryl Zanuck was a WASP. Were you ignorant of that fact, or were you banking on other readers’ ignorance?

    Hollywood’s founding Jewish movie moguls came from “areas that were heavily Jewish,” because (surprise, surprise!) they were Jews, and the anti-Semitic Christians in those countries forced them to live in ghettos.

    “in a similar Slavic region.”

    Wait a cotton-pickin’ minute! Either the regions were “heavily Jewish” or “similar[ly] Slavic.”

    Jews = Slavs?

    Well, sure, aside from small matters like the huge IQ imbalance, the difference between Judaism and Christianity, and the Slavs’ propensity to slaughter Jews. Otherwise, they’re indistinguishable.

    didn't begin yesterday. Every day at 4 pm a new starlet was supplied
    to Darryl Zanuck at his Fox Century City Studios through
    a subterranean passage for his personal enjoyment. Marilyn
    Monroe, based on her memoir, was treated similarly, at least
    at the beginning of her career. Even earlier, Betty Davis famously
    said that to advance her career, Joan Crawford (1904-1977) "slept
    with every male star at MGM except Lassie."

    In my recent posts I said that it's very likely that the practice
    of the casting couch was brought to the U.S. from Eastern
    Europe where girls were recruited and groomed to work in
    the local vice industries such as bordellos. Let's not forget that many
    founders of the U.S. movie industry came from Poland and
    Ukraine, areas that were heavily Jewish. Sam Warner (1887-1927),
    for example, was born in a village north of Warsaw, not far from
    the town where Ben-Gurion, founder of Israel, was born. Samuel
    Goldwyn (1879-1974) was born in Warsaw. Louis B. Mayer (1884-1957)
    was born near Kiev in a similar Slavic region.

    In conclusion, the grooming of teenage girls to
    work in the vice industry or burlesque or movies
    didn’t begin in Rotterham (England)

    Jimbo Fisher, fresh off covering up a couple of rapes by Jameis Winston, has now arrived at Texas A&M to the tune of a $75 million dollar contract.

    Is there any way to pressure the administration into preventing him from recruiting the most criminal players he can in search of a national championship? I ask because I go to school here, and there hasn't been a peep in any student or official media about the 2 settlements involving Jimbo before he arrived.

    Get your local SJW student newspaper interested in a story: “University Brings Rape Enabler to Campus, Pays Him $75m”.

    Use them for a good purpose for once.

    Of course, it would be fittingly ironic if the one time they have a genuine rape culture to write about, they decide to pass. Worth a shot, though.

    Or maybe there aren’t any SJWs in Texas?

    I never actually heard how the lawsuit over the infamous shower scene in Apt Pupil played out. According to the Wikipedia link:

    The Los Angeles District Attorney’s office determined that there was no cause to file criminal charges,[29] stating, “The suspects were intent on completing a professional film as quickly and efficiently as possible. There is no indication of lewd or abnormal sexual intent.”

    Well, other than the fact that it’s Bryan Singer, I would suggest that a nude 14-year-old is an indication. Usually in movies, they have older, but young-looking actors play teenagers even when they aren’t going to be in a shower. And since we know for a fact that Bryan Singer has his own personal harem of such guys, it’s not like he couldn’t find one.

    Or, if he absolutely had to have a real fourteen-year-old, there’s always the idea of having him in a pair of swim trunks and just filming him from the waist up.

    It seeems to me that just using one of his twinks would be a lot quicker and more “efficient” for Bryan Singer than finding a stage parent who wants to let their 14-year-old son be naked in some flaming gay man’s Nazi movie would have been, especially given all the controversy it eventually stirred up.

    But, I guess the courts have ruled on this one, so it’s a moot point now.

    Is "Bohemian Rhapsody" the actual title, or just a working title? Because how lame.

    'Course, "Bohemian Rhapsody" was a very Queen-y title at one point. But it's as familiar as Coca-Cola and as exciting as oatmeal by now.

    Also, naming musical biopics after the musician's most famous work is boring. I was recently watching Rhapsody in Blue, which was a George Gershwin biopic, with occasional Ira. That movie is from 1945. This Freddie Mercury title is about as cutting edge.

    It wouldn't be hard to use the same idea, only pick something slightly less familiar. Like:

    (These sound like movie titles to me)
    Made in Heaven
    Who Wants to Live Forever?
    Keep Yourself Alive
    Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy
    Stone Cold Crazy
    Death on Two Legs
    The Show Must Go On
    Play the Game
    I Want It All
    I Want to Break Free
    Pain Is So Close to Pleasure
    Don't Stop Me Now
    Spread Your Wings

    I wouldn't go too obscure, like Seven Seas of Rhye or Ogre Battle.

    Whatever else you might think of William Pierce, his essay on Allen Ginsberg stands as an astonishing indictment of someone who openly and without any attempt at subterfuge or cover practiced clearly illegal pederasty for decades and never got bothered for it.

    FWIW I met Ginsberg, at a Lawrence, Kansas affair some 30 years ago. He was perfectly cordial and well behaved to me-probably because I was well past the age he fancied . His long time boyfriend's assistant, a huge man named James Grauerholtz, was pretty rude though.

    I was at Naropa back in ’76. More to the point, Grauerholz was Burroughs “assistant,” and not really physically huge or intimidating; you must have mixed up the name.

    Didn’t they already come for Singer? Twice? He’s been forced to lay low twice in his career already and people have been talking about him doing gay casting couch and having an exclusive desire for men (Adolescents really) under 23 years old and twins for years. Not to mention affairs with barely legal boys and totally debouched days long cocaine-fuelled circuit parties.

    I think the Rapp affair made it socially acceptable for gay men to call out sexual aggression in a way they were unsure of before. Would it make us look bad to straights? Am I just being a sour-grape? Isn’t it just the price to pay for being able to enjoy such debouched sex life? Other guys will be scared of me now. I’m a man not some frail woman, I’ll suck it up.

    But gay men, particularly middle-class white gay men, have been losing their privilege points lately and maybe they see all that sweet publicity and sympathy (And thus commercial value, at least in terms of marketing) those actresses are getting and feel it’s worth it now.

    OT, lots of huge news tonight: an unknown Swedish Daniel Ellsberg has leaked crime statistics, which the Swedish government had been keeping secret. These statistics vindicate the so-called "racists," and rubbish the claims that white Swedes or reclassification were to blame for the increase in crime. "Non-Swedes" are responsible for over half of gang rape despite being just over ten per cent of the population (where have we seen that proportion before?). Even worse are the penalties. It is normal to get hours of community service for "aggravated rape."
    The government is responding by attempting to shut down the web site.
    http://boards.4chan.org/pol/thread/152037213

    See also the related https://pjjonasson.wordpress.com/2017/10/23/ny-undersokning-om-utlanningar-och-sexualbrott/

    Some conclusions translated into broken english:

    A survey of almost all convictions for sexual crimes 2012-2017 shows that:

    • Men with overseas descent commit 84% of first degree rape. Swedes come first in fourth place, after Afghans, Iraqis and Somalis.
    • Two out of three serious rapes are committed by asylum seekers or men who have been granted residence permits.
    • National groups with the highest factor (probability) commit gross rape are Algerian, Afghan, Tunisian, Moroccans and Palestinian Territories.
    • 95.6% of assault violence is committed by men of foreign descent.
    • Most assault violence in individuals is committed by Somali, Eritrean, Algerian, Iraqi and Gambian.

    • 90% of group violence is committed by men of overseas descent. Every fourth rapist who acted as a group is Afghan.

    • Foreigners sexually assault victims of Swedish origin to a much greater extent than they do other foreigners.

    • Homosexuals’ share of total rape has risen sharply in recent years, while group rape against men is now the most common category.
    • 85% of those convicted of group violence against men are Afghans.

    Raw data (court cases) available for download, though I suppose you need to read Swedish.

    Therefore, if we can trust Hollywood, Nijinsky was totally gay. And if we can't trust Hollywood, does the world make sense?

    Here is a cause you should consider:

    Promoting the abolition of the American Football and substituting rugby. Rugby is a much better game played by much better men. It’s rough, but much safer than American football as only the man with the ball is tackled/played.

    Most players play bare headed, some wear a small leather head protector – the key difference is that rugby players don’t use their head as a battering ram to head butt opponents with a hard plastic/near steel helmet they way it is done in American football.

    American football and American basketball are the only two sports dominated by Black thug/rapists.

    A certain % of Jewish couples were always infertile (maybe even higher in the past before modern fertility treatments) but the absence of birth control meant that there were always Jewish teenage girls getting pregnant, so that Jewish adoption needs were fulfilled with Jewish babies. In those days, many adoptions were arranged privately - one branch of my wife's family had a family doctor in it and if there was ever a teenage girl "in trouble" he would find some infertile couple in the extended family to take the kid. It was great for everyone.

    But birth control and abortion changed everything. The # of Jewish teenage girls who carry babies to term and give them up for adoption nowadays is essentially zero. Even finding white kids is hard (especially ones that don't have fetal alcohol syndrome).

    I don't know whether I should say this, but I share a surname with Malek's Pacific character, though we have different ethnic backgrounds. Which made him stick in my head.

    There was something catchy about him. Superficially a weirdo, softer underneath. But apart from that, his relationship with the main character, "Sledgehammer," made that part of the show. I liked their storyline much better than the other two main characters'.

    As it happens, I didn't read Sledgehammer's memoirs--With the Old, Breed--until after I saw the show. But I had read an essay (or speech, maybe) of his from an antiwar anthology whose name escapes me.

    Similarly, I hadn't (and still haven't) read other main character Robert Leckie's memoir Helmet for my pillow. I was surprised, however, to discover I had read his Revolutionary War history: George Washington's War.

    The Pacific didn’t have the luxury of following one unit from D-Day to Berchtesgaden. But I rather liked the way the creators wove three different stories together, using the memoirs you cited.

    Baryshnikov, in contrast, has had a pretty kick-ass life, as far as I can tell.

    I was just watching De-Lovely, starring Kevin Kline as Cole Porter, which featured a scene of he and Nijinksy sharing a sexy look as Porter watched the Firebird, seated next to his wife.

    At least I think it was Nijinsky and the Firebird. That’s what it looked like to me, though I’m no ballet aficionado.

    Therefore, if we can trust Hollywood, Nijinsky was totally gay. And if we can’t trust Hollywood, does the world make sense?

    Nijinsky (Wacław Niżyński in Polish) was a Polish
    ballet dancer born in the Russian Empire and educated
    in St. Petersburg where he was recruited by Diaghilev,
    an impressario who was openly homosexual. It's a
    fascinating story. The suspicion is that Nijinsky did it
    for the money because his family fell on hard times,
    and the Poles were oppressed in tsarist Russia. Nijinsky,
    however, married a young Hungarian noblewoman (of Polish
    descent) who was so fascinated by his genius that she
    pursued him around the world. He slowly began to go insane,
    and you can see his gradual descent into insanity in his
    famous diaries. His sister Bronia with whom he often
    danced, incl. in Paris, was a famous ballet dancer in her own
    right. If you're ever in Warsaw, you can see a beautiful statue
    of them dancing together. She had her own ballet school in Los
    Angeles, and died in the 1970s in Pacific Palisades

    Is "Bohemian Rhapsody" the actual title, or just a working title? Because how lame.

    'Course, "Bohemian Rhapsody" was a very Queen-y title at one point. But it's as familiar as Coca-Cola and as exciting as oatmeal by now.

    Also, naming musical biopics after the musician's most famous work is boring. I was recently watching Rhapsody in Blue, which was a George Gershwin biopic, with occasional Ira. That movie is from 1945. This Freddie Mercury title is about as cutting edge.

    It wouldn't be hard to use the same idea, only pick something slightly less familiar. Like:

    (These sound like movie titles to me)
    Made in Heaven
    Who Wants to Live Forever?
    Keep Yourself Alive
    Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy
    Stone Cold Crazy
    Death on Two Legs
    The Show Must Go On
    Play the Game
    I Want It All
    I Want to Break Free
    Pain Is So Close to Pleasure
    Don't Stop Me Now
    Spread Your Wings

    I wouldn't go too obscure, like Seven Seas of Rhye or Ogre Battle.

    How about something silly, like Movie Ga-Ga? Or Flash: Aaaaaah!

    Is “Bohemian Rhapsody” the actual title, or just a working title? Because how lame.

    Excellent name for a movie, especially if it is too long and tries to be so clever that it makes no sense and in the end the whole adds up to less than the sum of its parts. But perhaps it should be subtitled (“Singer, Not The Song.”)

    OT, lots of huge news tonight: an unknown Swedish Daniel Ellsberg has leaked crime statistics, which the Swedish government had been keeping secret. These statistics vindicate the so-called "racists," and rubbish the claims that white Swedes or reclassification were to blame for the increase in crime. "Non-Swedes" are responsible for over half of gang rape despite being just over ten per cent of the population (where have we seen that proportion before?). Even worse are the penalties. It is normal to get hours of community service for "aggravated rape."
    The government is responding by attempting to shut down the web site.

    From what I've seen, Jews adopting children was relatively rare before WWII, and mostly happened in the U.S., to wealthier families (outside of people adopting children of their own relatives, which is an age-old historical phenomenon).

    When it happened, they pretty much always adopted Jewish-born babies (Kitty Dukakis' mother was adopted, and was born to an Irish-American father and Jewish mother; but usually, these adoptees had two Jewish parents).

    After WWII, or really more right past the late 1950s, the kids Jews adopted didn't have to be born Jewish anymore. For example, the Andrew Breitbart case, or actress Melissa Gilbert. I'm not sure about Bay and Singer's biological parentage, but it's possible at least one of their birth parents was Jewish. It's probably a weird coincidence that two famous Jewish directors born in the exact same year were adopted.

    For whatever reason, few if any prominent Jews born after the 1960s were adopted.

    A certain % of Jewish couples were always infertile (maybe even higher in the past before modern fertility treatments) but the absence of birth control meant that there were always Jewish teenage girls getting pregnant, so that Jewish adoption needs were fulfilled with Jewish babies. In those days, many adoptions were arranged privately – one branch of my wife’s family had a family doctor in it and if there was ever a teenage girl “in trouble” he would find some infertile couple in the extended family to take the kid. It was great for everyone.

    But birth control and abortion changed everything. The # of Jewish teenage girls who carry babies to term and give them up for adoption nowadays is essentially zero. Even finding white kids is hard (especially ones that don’t have fetal alcohol syndrome).

    It’s too late to come for Allen Ginsberg.

    Andrea Dworkin’s memoir, Heartbreak:

    On the day of the bar mitzvah newspapers reported in huge headlines that the Supreme Court had ruled child pornography illegal. I was thrilled. I knew that Allen would not be. I did think he was a civil libertarian. But in fact, he was a pedophile. He did not belong to the North American ManBoy Love Association out of some mad, abstract conviction that its voice had to be heard. He meant it. I take this from what Allen said directly to me, not from some inference I made. He was exceptionally aggressive about his right to fuck children and his constant pursuit of underage boys. I did everything I could to avoid Allen and to avoid conflict. This was my godson’s day. He did not need a political struggle to the death breaking out all over. Ginsberg would not leave me alone. He followed me everywhere I went from the lobby of the hotel through the whole reception, then during the dinner. He photographed me constantly with a vicious little camera he wore around his neck. He sat next to me and wanted to know details of sexual abuse I had suffered. A lovely woman, not knowing that his interest was entirely pornographic, told a terrible story of being molested by a neighbor. He ignored her. She had thought, “This is Allen Ginsberg, the great beat poet and a prince of empathy.” Wrong. Ginsberg told me that he had never met an intelligent person who had the ideas I did. I told him he didn’t get around enough. He pointed to the friends of my godson and said they were old enough to fuck. They were 12 and 13. He said that all sex was good, including forced sex. I am good at getting rid of men, strictly in the above-board sense. I couldn’t get rid of Allen. Finally I had had it. Referring back to the Supreme Court’s decision banning child pornography he said, “The right wants to put me in jail.” I said, “Yes, they’re very sentimental; I’d kill you.” The next day he’d point at me in crowded rooms and screech, “She wants to put me in jail.” I’d say, “No, Allen, you still don’t get it. The right wants to put you in jail. I want you dead.” He told everyone his fucked-up version of the story (“You want to put me in jail”) for years. When he died he stopped.

    The practice of the casting couch, for women or men, obviously
    didn't begin yesterday. Every day at 4 pm a new starlet was supplied
    to Darryl Zanuck at his Fox Century City Studios through
    a subterranean passage for his personal enjoyment. Marilyn
    Monroe, based on her memoir, was treated similarly, at least
    at the beginning of her career. Even earlier, Betty Davis famously
    said that to advance her career, Joan Crawford (1904-1977) "slept
    with every male star at MGM except Lassie."

    In my recent posts I said that it's very likely that the practice
    of the casting couch was brought to the U.S. from Eastern
    Europe where girls were recruited and groomed to work in
    the local vice industries such as bordellos. Let's not forget that many
    founders of the U.S. movie industry came from Poland and
    Ukraine, areas that were heavily Jewish. Sam Warner (1887-1927),
    for example, was born in a village north of Warsaw, not far from
    the town where Ben-Gurion, founder of Israel, was born. Samuel
    Goldwyn (1879-1974) was born in Warsaw. Louis B. Mayer (1884-1957)
    was born near Kiev in a similar Slavic region.

    Not sure if you’re right here, considering how many prostitutes there were in Dickens’ England and always have been everywhere else in the world.

    However, you make an interesting observation. You are poking a wasp nest with a stick, but something other than wasps will come out. You will be harassed to cite references proving the obvious facts you just innocently described. Then you will receive replies with their own citations that pretend to disprove you but actually don’t.

    Hooray for your observation. It is good enough to stand alone in its truth. No need to prove it any more than it proves itself. It is self-evident, you see. A certain brand of obnoxious perverts brought grooming and the bordello to Hollywood. This stands alone as truth, no matter what anyone else has done, or what anyone else will say to you now.

    This reminds me of a very interesting article I read recently. There is a small town on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic called Sosua, which has a nice beach, but is renowned as a center for prostitution and sex tourism.

    Sosua was founded as a home for Jews escaping from the holocaust and taken in by the Dominican government in the hope that they would develop agriculture and in the area. The the Dominican Republic Settlement Association gave farmers a mule, a horse, 10 cows and 75 acres of land. There is a small Jewish museum in the town and some of the local business are still run by descendants of the immigrants and their families. It all seems very charming and bucolic and a testament to the human spirit and all that.

    However a local historian did some research in the area and came to the surprising conclusion that the origins of the town becoming a sex center lay in there being a preponderance of young single Jewish men among the migrants, and the bordellos having sprung up at the other end of the beach in Charamicos to meet their needs.

    Altruistic adoption of non-relatives is not historically very common in non-Christian Eurasian cultures. Not sure about Sub-Saharan Africa.

    Oh, non-Jewish Americans didn’t adopt all that many non-relatives before WWII, either. It happened, but it was pretty rare. Wealthy families had a certain leg up. And many agencies made sure there were no Christian babies given to Jewish couples.

    I can’t even think of any famous 19th century adoptions.

Mainly recognise the name from it being branded about by David Bowie/Kurt Cobain as the main influence on their enigmatic cutup lyrics. There are excerpts from B’s truly vile letters to Ginsberg detailing his gay sex tourism in the middle east and G replying with his own sick tales in the states. The two of them should have been locked up.

    James Dickedy’s review of Ginsberg’s Kaddish in 1961:

    Confession Is Not Enough
    By JAMES DICKEY

    KADDISH
    By Allen Ginsberg

    It is fun to imagine the exhilaration that must seize people who “always thought they might be poets” when they try the Allen Ginsberg method and find out that, after all, they are poets. In each case the needed equipment is very simple: a life, with its memories, frustrations, secret wishes (very important these!), an ability to write elementary prose and to supply it with rather more exclamation points than might normally be called for; these show transport, awe, horror and other important emotions.

    Later, refinements may be introduced, such as Zen Buddhism and the frequent use of words like “strange,” “mad,” “tragic,” “visionary,” “angelic,” “apocalyptic” – and lo! The neophyte is revealed as a full-blown Ginsbergian or beatnik poet, qualified to read in coffee houses, wear a beard and serve as a “living symbol” of protest and freedom.

    Mr. Ginsberg’s new poems in “Kaddish,” like his old poems, seem not so much themselves as a convenient prototype of all such writing: a strewn, mishmash prose consisting mainly of assertions that its author is possessed, is often if not always in “holy ecstasy,” and so on. But the writing belies all such claims quite heartlessly; there is nothing holy about it in any sense that I can understand, and its obsession is evidenced only by its efforts to be so. Confession is not enough, and neither is the assumption that the truth of one’s experience will emerge if only one can keep talking long enough in a whipped-up state of excitement. It takes more than this to make poetry. It just does.

    Has anybody ever done an adoption study of whites across Jewish-gentile lines? That could be pretty interesting.

    Only one I can name of the top of my head is proto-punk innovator Iggy Pop…I think Jerry Lewis adopted a few non-Jewish kids (who he just cut out of his will)…NeoCon David Frum’s ultra liberal family had adopted him a native brother, who committed a hell of a lot of criminal shit (its been hinted that this lead him towards his eventual conservatism). Ben Stein adopted a gentile. He used to write about how he hoped his child would be the first convert Jewish president, then how much he resented his child sitting in the basement playing video games instead of defeating the world. I think their estranged at the moment, lol.

    Of course Zanuck was a WASP. I used his example to show
    how common the abuse of women was and is in Hollywood.

    The vast majority of American Jews do not come from Russia
    or Germany. They are descended from the Polish-Lithuanian
    Commonwealth which encompassed not only Poland but also
    parts of what today is called Lithuania, Belarus, and western
    Ukraine. Western Europeans loved the Jews so much they
    expelled them, often repeatedly, and the Germans killed millions
    of them quite recently. The Jews were banned from Western Europe
    and banned from Russia, so they ended up in the Commonwealth
    which was peaceful and never experienced religious wars. The
    Jews thrived in Poland. They were given all sorts of privileges
    by the kings, and unlike in W.Europe, were NOT confined to
    the ghettoes. A foreign visitor to 19th century Poland observed
    that "Polish bonhomie is so great it's even capable of
    dissolving the Jewish venom."

    The key question is how the Jews in the Commonwealth (where
    90% of the world's Ashkenazi Jews lived by 1550. Visit the "Polin
    Museum of the History of Polish Jews" in Warsaw for details) made
    a living. Here one has to examine the Arenda System. This is
    an unexplored topic but under this system the Jews ran the inns
    and the taverns which were the centers of entertainment and sale
    of alcohol. Apparently, things that went on there scandalized not
    only the Polish population but also the religious Jews who made
    periodic raids on their secular co-ethnics. This went on for centuries,
    and, obviously, didn't contribute to a positive image of Jews in the
    Commonwealth. Naturally, there are grievances on both sides as always
    in human affairs but the American Jews are so often consumed by
    virulent antipolonism (and antislavism in general), at the very least
    they should acknowledge their roots in the Polish-Lithuanian
    Commonwealth, and start by reading, for example, the Wikipedia
    articles on the Jewish history in Poland. By 1800 the Commonwealth
    was absorbed into the Russian Empire, and everybody there suffered,
    Poles and Jews alike.

    There are a ton of people who could be described in those terms, but they are heavily over-represented by one religio-ethnic group. Their outsize role in liberalizing sexual morality is partly explained (openly, by them) in terms of hoping to eliminate these occasional "embarassments." Their ability to escape justice becomes an issue, as in the Leo Frank lynching: a certainty is created that normal channels cannot be trusted.
    It is very interesting nevertheless to watch the Jack Kerouac episode of Firing Line knowing what we know now about his friend. The show is mainly remembered because Kerouac flatly rejected protest and activism as legitimate activities, saying that the hippies should not break the law, and should propagate their ideas through beautiful art rather than fighting cops. But at the start he is rather pointedly and unmistakeably disrespectful to Ginsberg, who is shown at the back of the studio audience, and Kerouac never explains this behavior. It could be a way to signal to the public that the writers were no longer on the same terms without explaining why, which would be the done thing at the time.

    Kerouac was kind of an outlier in that crowd, being from a working-class French-Canadian Catholic background that he never really separated from. He was kind of like Ken Kesey that way, only Kesey’s roots were midwestern, transplanted to Oregon, and in the ranching and dairy business. They didn’t do the in-you-face shock value stuff others did, and both expressed that it wasn’t a good thing. Kerouac was disillusioned by the 1968 Chicago protests; he said, “We’re just giving people new reasons to be spiteful.” Kesey also ended up disillusioned with “the movement” and would shoo away hippies who sought him out as some kind of guru.

    Well, we'll see.

    Hollywood's biggest fish, David Geffen — assuming you believe the rumors, which so far seem to have proven true — still seems unscathed, interestingly enough.

    I wonder how much hush money he’s paying Keanu Reeves.

    You insinuate that the Jews brought the process of grooming starlets, and those who hoped to become starlets, to Hollywood, but you’re all over the place. (And your allies completely miss your mistakes.)

    You attack three different types:

    Darryl Zanuck

    Founding Jewish movie moguls, who “came from Poland and
    Ukraine, areas that were heavily Jewish.”

    “in a similar Slavic region.”

    Darryl Zanuck was a WASP. Were you ignorant of that fact, or were you banking on other readers’ ignorance?

    Hollywood’s founding Jewish movie moguls came from “areas that were heavily Jewish,” because (surprise, surprise!) they were Jews, and the anti-Semitic Christians in those countries forced them to live in ghettos.

    “in a similar Slavic region.”

    Wait a cotton-pickin’ minute! Either the regions were “heavily Jewish” or “similar[ly] Slavic.”

    Jews = Slavs?

    Well, sure, aside from small matters like the huge IQ imbalance, the difference between Judaism and Christianity, and the Slavs’ propensity to slaughter Jews. Otherwise, they’re indistinguishable.

    I don’t know, whoever is masterminding the purge. More likely Obama liberals.
    In some cases, it’s just momentum, like a house of cards crumbling down.
    As for David Geffen, he’s so wealthy he can probably get away with anything.

    Isaac Singer found the Singer corporation which made sewing machine that were sold worldwide. Isaac seems to have been somewhat sexually incontinent and is reported to have fathered 24 children, not all with the same woman, of course. The sewing machines must have come in useful to clothe his family.

    It would not be surprising if our man is a descendant.

    I was just watching De-Lovely, starring Kevin Kline as Cole Porter, which featured a scene of he and Nijinksy sharing a sexy look as Porter watched the Firebird, seated next to his wife.

    At least I think it was Nijinsky and the Firebird. That's what it looked like to me, though I'm no ballet aficionado.

    Therefore, if we can trust Hollywood, Nijinsky was totally gay. And if we can't trust Hollywood, does the world make sense?

    Nijinsky (Wacław Niżyński in Polish) was a Polish
    ballet dancer born in the Russian Empire and educated
    in St. Petersburg where he was recruited by Diaghilev,
    an impressario who was openly homosexual. It’s a
    fascinating story. The suspicion is that Nijinsky did it
    for the money because his family fell on hard times,
    and the Poles were oppressed in tsarist Russia. Nijinsky,
    however, married a young Hungarian noblewoman (of Polish
    descent) who was so fascinated by his genius that she
    pursued him around the world. He slowly began to go insane,
    and you can see his gradual descent into insanity in his
    famous diaries. His sister Bronia with whom he often
    danced, incl. in Paris, was a famous ballet dancer in her own
    right. If you’re ever in Warsaw, you can see a beautiful statue
    of them dancing together. She had her own ballet school in Los
    Angeles, and died in the 1970s in Pacific Palisades

  121. LOL. The noose is tightening on the pedos.

    The rumors about Singer are truly depraved.

    The Hollywood enablement of this type of behavior essentially implicates everyone important in the industry.

    The arrows are starting to point to children’s movie directer and michael jackson intimate Stephen Spielberg. If Spielberg looked the other way while children were hurt on any of his hundreds of projects, Americans will wash their hands of Hollywood forever. And if Spielberg was personally involved? We may see lynch mobs.

    “The old order’s rapidly fading….”

    Would Spielberg covering up child abuse hurt his credibility in other areas?
