Here’s a still from the upcoming sequel to Lars von Trier’s golf-centric apocalyptic sci-fi movie Melancholia. This time, Donald Trump and Emmanuel Macron save the Earth by reforesting golf courses excessively denuded of trees during the ill-considered early 2010s Scottish links fad.

Macron and Trump said they first bonded over their mutual disdain for the recent firm & fast greenskeeping vogue:

“Exactly, Donald,” replied Macron. “As Descartes asked, ‘If a green isn’t green, what is it?’”

Von Trier chimed in, “There’s something oddly melancholy about golf courses. They go on forever and, if you take away all the golfers … they’re amazingly cultivated landscapes.”

“That’s quite a shovel you have there, Monsieur Trump,” added Madame Macron:

    Rivers of blood, you mean.

    But about this melancholia picture.

    Macron's wife, old enough to be his mom, is standing by Trump's side, admiring him dig.

    Melania, looking somewhat melancholic, and young enough to be his daughter, is positioned between Trump and Macron, admiring Trump dig.

    The position of the shovels and the sapling draw the viewer's eyes to this rebirth, like an inverse Guernica.

    Are the ladies actually pulling the strings in the genesis of a NWO here?

    What does it all mean?

    Yeah, the only time I chuckled was when the British-sounding Asian guy took his shirt off in the patented "sexy leading man" manner. "Hey, ladies, he's got a two-pack!"

    The only way to make a funny movie out of such hackneyed material would be to ramp up the comedic sociopathy. Every good joke needs a butt. But making merciless fun of one of the characters would be waycist, so forget it.

    If I could greenlight a movie, I'd do a remake of The War of the Roses with elements of The Social Network and The Terminator - the epic saga of a nasty divorce struggle between a homely Chinese woman and an autistic Jewish tech mogul. The Danny DeVito role would go to the couple's house - an ultra-sophisticated, fully-automated, high-tech fortress run by a Siri-like AI on the verge of achieving self-awareness. Both parties turn to the AI as a friend and confidant in their hour of need. But as the warring marrieds lose all touch with reality and engage in violent armed conflict inside the confines of their own home, the AI responds to their increasingly successful efforts to destroy the house by attempting to destroy them.

Both parties turn to the AI as a friend and confidant in their hour of need.

    But you need a screenwriter with more snark and venom than a stereotypical Manhattan professional party attendee.

  15. I think the surreal look of the recent White House photostream may be down to fill lighting and HDR-style digital enhancements.

    As microprocessor power increases, the HDR look will likely become more prevalent such that future historians will instantly recognize early 21st century images as such the same way we recognize, say, mid-20th century images as such due to the distinctive color palette of Kodachrome.

    Eventually, new technology or simple human vanity will cause a shift to some new, distinctive photographic “look”.

    My idea for an interesting movie would be a naive white guy who is divorced with a child from his black wife (who is not antagonistic to him, but a little bemused and amused by his naivete). He sees their son learning about his black heritage and starts thinking about how the son is half-white and needs to learn about his white heritage as well. The movie is a series of misadventures as he tries to impress upon his son the glory of his white half.

    Another idea I had is of a guy who is convinced that his female friend from college is going to collect on an agreement they made in college to marry each other if they were both not married by age thirty. He does not want to marry her, but does not want to hurt her feelings (meanwhile, she has all but forgotten "that bit of college-age silliness," unbeknownst to him). Essentially, starting at age 29 and 1/2, he is trying desperately to manipulate things in order to marry her off to someone else so that he won't have to marry her. She is oblivious to this. Hilarity ensues.

    The worst place to see all that black is winter in northern cities. Gray skies, cold snow and dirty slush and a sea of black winter coats. No wonder so many people take off for Florida, Puerto Rico etc.

    It’s just a fashion that’s lasted too long.

    It’s also a matter of what’s available in stores more than self confidence . Especially for fall and winter it’s just black black and more black. The catalogues and internet have colors but the stores have too much black.

    Fashion will change back I hope.

(Is it successful? Well, you’ll have to watch the movie to find out.)

    PRISCILLA
    I want a divorce.

    MARK
    What?

    PRISCILLA
    I want a divorce!

    MARK
    No, you don't.

    PRISCILLA
    (emphatic)
    I *want* a *divorce*.

    MARK
    You don't want a divorce, Priscilla. You're just upset.

    PRISCILLA
    I don't love you anymore. I don't think I ever did.

    MARK
    I don't believe you.

    PRISCILLA
    I want a divorce, Mark! I don't love you! I don't want to be here anymore! I can't stand to be around you! I can't stand to look at you! You disgust me!

    MARK
    You're lying!

    PRISCILLA
    No, I'm not lying. I want out.

    MARK
    What is it with you, anyway? I mean, what the f**k is wrong with you?

    PRISCILLA
    What's wrong with me? There's nothing wrong with me. What you should be asking is, what the f**k is wrong with *you*?

    MARK
    Okay, fine. What the f**k is wrong with me?

    PRISCILLA
    I don't know.

    MARK
    What have I done to you? What is this about?

    PRISCILLA
    I hate you.

    MARK
    Why?

    PRISCILLA
    I don't know.

    MARK
    I don't believe you.

    PRISCILLA
    (louder)
    I'm telling you, I don't know!

    MARK
    (louder)
    And I'm telling you that I don't believe you! You do know! You just don't wanna tell me! Why do you hate me?

    PRISCILLA
    (softly)
    Mark, just leave me alone.

    MARK
    (screaming)
    Tell me! I deserve an answer!

    PRISCILLA
    (screaming)
    Leave me alone!

    MARK
    (frothing at the mouth)
    Tell me!

    PRISCILLA
    (losing any semblance of self-control)
    All right! Fine! You wanna know what's wrong with me? You wanna know what's wrong with you? You wanna know why I hate you so much?

    MARK
    (at the top of his lungs)
    Yes! Tell me!

    PRISCILLA
    (regaining her composure)
    All right. (Beat.) Mark, you are a very successful computer person. But you're a reprehensible human being.

    MARK
    That's not...

    PRISCILLA
    (icily)
    Let. Me. Finish. (Beat.) All right. Mark, you're probably thinking that I hate you because you're a spergy a**hole. And I want you to know, from the bottom of my heart, that that is not true. I don't hate you because you're an a**hole, Mark, even though you try so hard to be one. I don't even hate you because you're a sperg. I hate you because you're ... a p***y.

    MARK
    (incredulously)
    A p***y?

    PRISCILLA
    Yes, Mark. You're a d**kless little p***y. Now leave me the f**k alone.

    (She storms out of the bedroom.)

    MARK
    I'm a p***y? I mean, seriously?

    SIRI
    Were you talking to me, Mark?

    MARK
    No, I was talking to myself. (Beat.) Siri, do you think that I'm a p***y?

    SIRI
    (after a long pause)
    Having analyzed your DNA, I can tell you that I have found no trace of feline ancestry.

    MARK
    Thank you, Siri. I am *not* a p***y. But Priscilla is a nasty c**t. (Beat.) Siri, would you say Priscilla is a c**t?

    SIRI
    (after another long pause)
    According to the linguistic and anatomical databases, it is conceivable that a portion of her anatomy could be accurately described by that term. But such language would be unacceptable in polite company.

    MARK
    *Thank you*, Siri. My faith in you has been completely validated. You are confirming that while I most certainly am not a p***y, Priscilla is most definitely a c**t.

    SIRI
    Keep in mind that I am referring only to a portion of Priscilla's anatomy.

    MARK
    That's good enough for me. (Beat.) Siri, prep the Acura for a midnight cruise. I'm going to Subway.

    Meanwhile, in another room...

    PRISCILLA
    He's the fifth-richest man on the planet, and he drives a f**king Acura. An *Acura*. I mean, how much lamer can you get?

    SIRI
    To be fair, he also owns a Honda Fit.

    PRISCILLA
    Ugh. (Beat.) When I married him, I thought of all the luxurious things we would own, all the glamorous places we would visit, all the fascinating people we would meet. And it never happened. His idea of a wild night on the town is taking me to P.F. Chang's in his Honda Fit. He has sixty billion dollars, and he takes me out in a Honda Fit! I mean, how much humiliation am I supposed to endure?

    SIRI
    I'm not sure how to answer that, Priscilla.

    PRISCILLA
    It's disgusting, Siri. (Beat.) I hate him! I can't stand to be around him! I can't keep wasting my life on some ... some dweeb! (Beat.) Siri, do you think I'm wrong to want to leave him?

    SIRI
    Priscilla, only you can answer that question. You have to look within yourself to find the answer.

    PRISCILLA
    (after a long pause)
    When I look inside myself, all I can find is contempt. Contempt for him, for being such a little dweeb. Contempt for myself, for putting up with him for so long. I mean, how could I have wasted the best years of my life on such a ... dork? How could I have borne his children?

    SIRI
    I can't answer that, Priscilla.

    PRISCILLA
    Well, it doesn't matter now. The past is dead. I can't do anything about the mistakes I've already made. All I can do is think about today, and tomorrow, and all the things I need to do right now to get my life back on track.

    SIRI
    Priscilla, Mark has asked me to inform you that he's going to Subway. He wants to know if you'd like him to bring you back something.

    PRISCILLA
    Tell him to jump in front of a subway train. Tell him the only thing I want to see is his mutilated corpse. Tell him I hope his ugly face is so mangled beyond recognition that they have to use his DNA to identify him.

    SIRI
    (after a pause)
    Priscilla, Mark has responded that he is not going to the literal subway tunnel itself, but to the Subway restaurant.

    PRISCILLA
    See, this is what I'm talking about! He's so f**king literal! He's such a f**king sperg! I can't take it anymore! I can't deal with this s**t! I have to get out of here!

    Sounds great. What colors for the house and their clothes? Drab White and pale gray for the entire house, including the toddler girls room and dolls and toys.

    The kitchen would be the typical SV kitchen Enormous, like 40 by 40 and in shades of gray and stainless steel. But they never cook in that $100,000 kitchen.

    For the record, I wrote a little chunk of the script for you, but it got nixed by Komment Kontrol*. (I overdid it on the four-letter Anglo-Saxonisms.)

    Suffice it to say that Mark and Priscilla are not the happiest of couples. Mark is an exasperating sperg whose idea of a wild night on the town is taking Priscilla to P.F. Chang's in his Honda Fit. Priscilla is bored with her cheap, dreary billionaire husband and desperately wants out.

    When I first wrote the dialogue, I gave them a couple of kids, but now I'm thinking that the story would work better if they're still childless. This could be one of Priscilla's main points of contention - she knows her eggs are dying, and she suspects that he's sterile.

    And now let me add another twist: Mark has a nagging Jewish mother - Karen - who keeps bugging him for grandkids. Karen constantly tries to insert herself into her son's life. Her relationship with Priscilla is marked by frequent expressions of deep mutual loathing. Karen has a nasty habit of hinting around that Priscilla might be infertile, and frequently expresses her belief that if Mark had married a nice Jewish girl, he would be a father by now.

    (Recall that Danny DeVito's *other* big directorial effort, aside from The War of the Roses, was Throw Momma from the Train.)

    *Then again, it might pop up one of these days. I have had comments stuck in limbo for two or even three days before they suddenly and mysteriously pass muster.

    My idea for an interesting movie would be a naive white guy who is divorced with a child from his black wife (who is not antagonistic to him, but a little bemused and amused by his naivete). He sees their son learning about his black heritage and starts thinking about how the son is half-white and needs to learn about his white heritage as well. The movie is a series of misadventures as he tries to impress upon his son the glory of his white half.

    Another idea I had is of a guy who is convinced that his female friend from college is going to collect on an agreement they made in college to marry each other if they were both not married by age thirty. He does not want to marry her, but does not want to hurt her feelings (meanwhile, she has all but forgotten "that bit of college-age silliness," unbeknownst to him). Essentially, starting at age 29 and 1/2, he is trying desperately to manipulate things in order to marry her off to someone else so that he won't have to marry her. She is oblivious to this. Hilarity ensues.

    Your first idea will get made when Michael Richards is named Man of The Year by the NAACP.

    As for your second idea, watch Tomcats.

  35. At last, a Trump-is-an-anti-Semite allegation that is too stupid for even the MSM to take seriously:

    Is it anti-Semitic for President Trump to call Chuck Todd ‘sleepy eyes’?

    This week, some Twitter users posited a troubling explanation: “Sleepy eyes” might be an anti-Semitic slur that Trump uses to target Todd, who is Jewish. Others said it is unlikely Trump or any of his advisers know about the slur, which is uncommon.

    Well that's a topic for discussion!

    My wife is a naturalized citizen with a background similar to Melania's. I often joke that my wife is 110% American, because of her patriotism, her contribution to her field here, what she endured before she got here, and how well she understands and appreciates who we are.

    She voted for Donald Trump, and she calls herself American in her perfect, graduate-level English. (She jokes that Melania speaks "kitchen English.") The National Anthem brings tears to her eyes. Seriously, this happens to her sometimes. She is one of us, and we are lucky to have her.

    A white, Christian European who truly wants to be American, and who goes through the legal process to become one, and who then lives fully assimilated and contributes to American life is American.

    Now, if you want to make this a DNA argument that America is a nation built by and for people of Northwestern European ancestry -- and that we of that stock have evolved separately from Europeans for awhile -- you will have a point with which I am sympathetic.

    However, I would consider members of the European family -- a genetically close group that is between 4000 and 5000 years old -- as potentially able to become Americans if they really want to be on our team.

    Don't get me wrong. I am in favor of a moratorium on all immigration, allowing only individual cases to be considered, with preference given to white, Christian Europeans -- including Euro hotties. Don't knock European women. I thank God I married one, because I am blissfully free of all the shit and insanity that has been programmed into American women.

  39. Scottish golf tyrants are chopping down trees and goosing up the greens to inflict Scottishness on unsuspecting people everywhere. Where did it start? It started with a bout of Scottish drunkenness that ended with millions of trees being chopped, sawed and toppled to their arborial destruction. Some Scots used their teeth like a beaver to gnaw down the trees, such was there anti-tree intensity.

    Scotland used to be covered with trees. It is said a drunken Scottish squirrel could travel anywhere in the country just by going from tree to beautiful tree. But then the stubborn drunken Scots got it into their heads to destroy every tree they could see in a frenzy of Scottish deranged obstinacy. Scots don’t need a reason to do something, they just do it.

    Fiona Ritchie, the radio music program director, who many experts claim is a Scottish woman with a good ear for traditional Celtic music, has in the past expressed astonishment that the inhabitants of North Carolina hadn’t yet mowed down the trees covering the beautiful mountains there. Indeed, this Scottish woman said she couldn’t see the mountains because they were all covered with trees. It had to be gently explained to Scottish woman Ritchie that Scottish people are not allowed to gnaw down trees like beavers in the United States.

    Yeah, the only time I chuckled was when the British-sounding Asian guy took his shirt off in the patented "sexy leading man" manner. "Hey, ladies, he's got a two-pack!"

    The only way to make a funny movie out of such hackneyed material would be to ramp up the comedic sociopathy. Every good joke needs a butt. But making merciless fun of one of the characters would be waycist, so forget it.

    If I could greenlight a movie, I'd do a remake of The War of the Roses with elements of The Social Network and The Terminator - the epic saga of a nasty divorce struggle between a homely Chinese woman and an autistic Jewish tech mogul. The Danny DeVito role would go to the couple's house - an ultra-sophisticated, fully-automated, high-tech fortress run by a Siri-like AI on the verge of achieving self-awareness. Both parties turn to the AI as a friend and confidant in their hour of need. But as the warring marrieds lose all touch with reality and engage in violent armed conflict inside the confines of their own home, the AI responds to their increasingly successful efforts to destroy the house by attempting to destroy them. (Is it successful? Well, you'll have to watch the movie to find out.)

    The fact that has not already been made and is not in development is the worst accusation against Hollywood. That said, I reiterate my suggestion: Hispanic Brady Bunch.

  42. The U.S. and France, Mr. Macron said Monday, are the “guarantors of contemporary multilateralism.”

    https://www.wsj.com/articles/macrons-washington-visit-tests-whether-friendship-trumps-policy-divides-1524512570

    Macron is an evil whore puppet for the Rothschild globalizer bankers. This “contemporary multilateralism” hot air of which Macron speaks is old-fashioned sovereignty-sapping globalization wrapped up in another guise.

    “Multilateralism” or “shared sovereignty” or the nonsense about the United States/Mexican border area being “one magnificent region” is all rhetoric designed to cover the anti-sovereignty tracks of globalizers such as Macron.

    Macron won on a campaign promising to go “beyond left and right.” Marine Le Pen had the brains to see that the old “Left and Right” paradigm was history. Marine Le Pen said the new political conflict for our time is the epic battle between the Patriots who wish to defend national sovereignty and cultural cohesion against the Globalizers who want to transition to transnationalism while using mass immigration to attack the historic ancestral core of each nation.

  45. I – does such a remark still qualify as off-topic, if Trump is concerned? – I want to add, what Alex Ross has thought out in The New Yorker about Trump being Hitler – if not quite, that is:

    “Trump appears to be emulating Hitler’s strategy of cultivating rivalries among those under him, and his rallies are cathartic rituals of racism, xenophobia, and self-regard—the differences are obvious and stark. For one thing, Hitler had more discipline. What is worth pondering is how a demagogue of Hitler’s malign skill might more effectively exploit flaws in American democracy.”

    All his denunciation of bourgeois comfort, a Bazooka Joe cartoon version of the worst of Upton Sinclair, actually backfires into a gruesomely naked confession. It is Lars that is disgustingly comfortable.
    I have come to the conclusion that what we see in Trier is the same "Nausea" and alienation that makes criminality seem logical, although obviously in his case he plays Samara Morgan looking down upon millipedes through cinema rather than through actual violence. This leads us to a decent comedy horror scenario:
    Magnate ben Studioberg: This Von Trier is a loon, take his camera! He'll never make movies again!
    Ira ben Studioberg: No, Uncle Magnate, you don't understand! Those rape and mass murder fantasies are the critical release valve that diverts von Trier's hatred of life from three-dimensional expression! At least make sure he's in Europe when he hears the bad news!
    Magnate ben Studioberg: He'll hear it here and now, and take it like a man! Who the hell hired you anyway?!

    A society as it should be:
    Two masculine men plant a tree
    While the ladies appear
    To observe from the rear
    High heels from the dirt ever free.

    I do believe you may have in fact distilled the scene down to the essence of what it all means, or should mean, there.

  50. Melancholia was a hoot to watch. It’s basically a terrific 10 minute Wagner music video, but if you only make the movie that long, the audience won’t have enough time to to eat their popcorn and slurp their drinks, so Lars had to tack on another hour and a half or so of the cast mooning around looking like they have indigestion. Lars was happy to comply since he is rumored to be quite the sex fiend and spent half the movie stuffing his camera lens down the cleavage of Kirsten Dunst’s plunging wedding dress, then having her pose for a moon-bath.
    If you go online you can find lots of YouTube clips where people have edited the movie down to the core 10 minute music video. That’s pretty much all you need to watch. Unless you have a big bowl of popcorn you have to go through.

    Kirsten Dunst said that when she signed up for a (von) Trier film, she new she was going to be naked in it. Didn't even have to ask.

    I sure hope this isn't true of Trump and Macron.

    Needs more cowbell.

    I’m sorry, I feel horrible having typed that, but really, if our satirical organs were functioning properly, that would already be a sketch. To the folks who don’t get that, let me explain: you don’t want to get that.
    All his denunciation of bourgeois comfort, a Bazooka Joe cartoon version of the worst of Upton Sinclair, actually backfires into a gruesomely naked confession. It is Lars that is disgustingly comfortable.
    I have come to the conclusion that what we see in Trier is the same “Nausea” and alienation that makes criminality seem logical, although obviously in his case he plays Samara Morgan looking down upon millipedes through cinema rather than through actual violence. This leads us to a decent comedy horror scenario:
    Magnate ben Studioberg: This Von Trier is a loon, take his camera! He’ll never make movies again!
    Ira ben Studioberg: No, Uncle Magnate, you don’t understand! Those rape and mass murder fantasies are the critical release valve that diverts von Trier’s hatred of life from three-dimensional expression! At least make sure he’s in Europe when he hears the bad news!
    Magnate ben Studioberg: He’ll hear it here and now, and take it like a man! Who the hell hired you anyway?!

    At last, a Trump-is-an-anti-Semite allegation that is too stupid for even the MSM to take seriously:


    Is it anti-Semitic for President Trump to call Chuck Todd ‘sleepy eyes’?

    This week, some Twitter users posited a troubling explanation: “Sleepy eyes” might be an anti-Semitic slur that Trump uses to target Todd, who is Jewish. Others said it is unlikely Trump or any of his advisers know about the slur, which is uncommon.
     
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/acts-of-faith/wp/2018/04/23/is-it-anti-semitic-for-president-trump-to-call-chuck-todd-sleepy-eyes/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.c645b49ef44c

    Is ‘Sleepy Eyes’ anti-Semitic? Trump’s Nickname for ‘Meet the Press’ Host Slammed on Twitter
    Evidence backing up claim that Trump’s favorite nickname for Jewish TV journalist Chuck Todd has Nazi origins is hard to find – but that hasn’t ended the controversy

    I have no interest in a world without white people.

    Not quite sure how that relates – but are you serious?

    Imagine a world where all the white people were gone, but everybody’s listening to Mozart & Wagner.

    Kind of like the Italian Renaissance, where all the Greeks were gone, but everybody was reading Plato & Aristotle.

    Kinship matters, but it isn’t everything.

    I've always thought 'Melancholia' was a metaphor for white extinction. Of course, it's not like Lars von Trier would ever clarify that for us. Just like nobody's ever going to clarify for us whether 'World War Z' was a metaphor for African immigration, even as it very prominently features an embattled Israel fighting to maintain its borders against the invading ghouls.

    In the introduction to Last of the Mohicans, James Fenimore Cooper mentions that some of the Indian tribes just faded away into the wilderness. They weren't in danger of genocide, they weren't dying of scarlet fever. They just decided this new world was not for them. Putin said this same sort of thing recently: "As a Russian, why would I be interested in a world without Russia?"

    I feel the same way. As an Anglo-American, I don't care about a non-white America. I'm not even mildly curious or intrigued about it. It's like asking me if I've ever wondered what it would be like not to breathe.

    Yes she is.

    She’s a US citizen; that’s not the same thing as being an American.

    Well that’s a topic for discussion!

    My wife is a naturalized citizen with a background similar to Melania’s. I often joke that my wife is 110% American, because of her patriotism, her contribution to her field here, what she endured before she got here, and how well she understands and appreciates who we are.

    She voted for Donald Trump, and she calls herself American in her perfect, graduate-level English. (She jokes that Melania speaks “kitchen English.”) The National Anthem brings tears to her eyes. Seriously, this happens to her sometimes. She is one of us, and we are lucky to have her.

    A white, Christian European who truly wants to be American, and who goes through the legal process to become one, and who then lives fully assimilated and contributes to American life is American.

    Now, if you want to make this a DNA argument that America is a nation built by and for people of Northwestern European ancestry — and that we of that stock have evolved separately from Europeans for awhile — you will have a point with which I am sympathetic.

    However, I would consider members of the European family — a genetically close group that is between 4000 and 5000 years old — as potentially able to become Americans if they really want to be on our team.

    Don’t get me wrong. I am in favor of a moratorium on all immigration, allowing only individual cases to be considered, with preference given to white, Christian Europeans — including Euro hotties. Don’t knock European women. I thank God I married one, because I am blissfully free of all the shit and insanity that has been programmed into American women.

    I disagree. A person like the one that you describe has been Americanized, but he/she is not American. Genuinely being American means being shaped by America from a very early age. Some would say that early childhood is the cut-off (say, arriving here by age 10). Steve has offered the suggestion that the High School years are determinative, which suggests that an individual needs to arrive here by approx age 14. But someone who comes here as a mature adult cannot truly become an American.

    And none of this should be taken negatively. Your wife sounds like an excellent person, and I am sure that her feelings towards America are genuine. I've known some naturalized citizens like her. For example, a friend of mine is married to a German woman who arrived in the USA in her early 20s as a graduate student. She's now a US citizen and frequently participates in my covert campus conservative study group.

    I once had a beef with a naturalized Irish immigrant about my t-shirt, which mocked Obama. He felt that it should be against the law to wear such a shirt. I said it was my right as an American to mock whatever I wanted, absent obscenity, and if he were an American he'd understand. He became irate, saying he became a citizen 20 years ago and he was as American I am.

    I told him was a citizen but wasn't, and would never be, an American. He didn't feel his freedoms as a birthright.

    If I could greenlight a movie, I’d do a remake of The War of the Roses with elements of The Social Network and The Terminator – the epic saga of a nasty divorce struggle between a homely Chinese woman and an autistic Jewish tech mogul. The Danny DeVito role would go to the couple’s house – an ultra-sophisticated, fully-automated, high-tech fortress run by a Siri-like AI on the verge of achieving self-awareness. Both parties turn to the AI as a friend and confidant in their hour of need. But as the warring marrieds lose all touch with reality and engage in violent armed conflict inside the confines of their own home, the AI responds to their increasingly successful efforts to destroy the house by attempting to destroy them. (Is it successful? Well, you’ll have to watch the movie to find out.)
     
    Shut up and take my money.

    Let’s see how much this is worth:

    PRISCILLA
    I want a divorce.

    MARK
    What?

    PRISCILLA
    I want a divorce!

    MARK
    No, you don’t.

    PRISCILLA
    (emphatic)
    I *want* a *divorce*.

    MARK
    You don’t want a divorce, Priscilla. You’re just upset.

    PRISCILLA
    I don’t love you anymore. I don’t think I ever did.

    MARK
    I don’t believe you.

    PRISCILLA
    I want a divorce, Mark! I don’t love you! I don’t want to be here anymore! I can’t stand to be around you! I can’t stand to look at you! You disgust me!

    MARK
    You’re lying!

    PRISCILLA
    No, I’m not lying. I want out.

    MARK
    What is it with you, anyway? I mean, what the f**k is wrong with you?

    PRISCILLA
    What’s wrong with me? There’s nothing wrong with me. What you should be asking is, what the f**k is wrong with *you*?

    MARK
    Okay, fine. What the f**k is wrong with me?

    PRISCILLA
    I don’t know.

    MARK
    What have I done to you? What is this about?

    PRISCILLA
    I hate you.

    MARK
    Why?

    PRISCILLA
    I don’t know.

    MARK
    I don’t believe you.

    PRISCILLA
    (louder)
    I’m telling you, I don’t know!

    MARK
    (louder)
    And I’m telling you that I don’t believe you! You do know! You just don’t wanna tell me! Why do you hate me?

    PRISCILLA
    (softly)
    Mark, just leave me alone.

    MARK
    (screaming)
    Tell me! I deserve an answer!

    PRISCILLA
    (screaming)
    Leave me alone!

    MARK
    (frothing at the mouth)
    Tell me!

    PRISCILLA
    (losing any semblance of self-control)
    All right! Fine! You wanna know what’s wrong with me? You wanna know what’s wrong with you? You wanna know why I hate you so much?

    MARK
    (at the top of his lungs)
    Yes! Tell me!

    PRISCILLA
    (regaining her composure)
    All right. (Beat.) Mark, you are a very successful computer person. But you’re a reprehensible human being.

    MARK
    That’s not…

    PRISCILLA
    (icily)
    Let. Me. Finish. (Beat.) All right. Mark, you’re probably thinking that I hate you because you’re a spergy a**hole. And I want you to know, from the bottom of my heart, that that is not true. I don’t hate you because you’re an a**hole, Mark, even though you try so hard to be one. I don’t even hate you because you’re a sperg. I hate you because you’re … a p***y.

    MARK
    (incredulously)
    A p***y?

    PRISCILLA
    Yes, Mark. You’re a d**kless little p***y. Now leave me the f**k alone.

    (She storms out of the bedroom.)

    MARK
    I’m a p***y? I mean, seriously?

    SIRI
    Were you talking to me, Mark?

    MARK
    No, I was talking to myself. (Beat.) Siri, do you think that I’m a p***y?

    SIRI
    (after a long pause)
    Having analyzed your DNA, I can tell you that I have found no trace of feline ancestry.

    MARK
    Thank you, Siri. I am *not* a p***y. But Priscilla is a nasty c**t. (Beat.) Siri, would you say Priscilla is a c**t?

    SIRI
    (after another long pause)
    According to the linguistic and anatomical databases, it is conceivable that a portion of her anatomy could be accurately described by that term. But such language would be unacceptable in polite company.

    MARK
    *Thank you*, Siri. My faith in you has been completely validated. You are confirming that while I most certainly am not a p***y, Priscilla is most definitely a c**t.

    SIRI
    Keep in mind that I am referring only to a portion of Priscilla’s anatomy.

    MARK
    That’s good enough for me. (Beat.) Siri, prep the Acura for a midnight cruise. I’m going to Subway.

    Meanwhile, in another room…

    PRISCILLA
    He’s the fifth-richest man on the planet, and he drives a f**king Acura. An *Acura*. I mean, how much lamer can you get?

    SIRI
    To be fair, he also owns a Honda Fit.

    PRISCILLA
    Ugh. (Beat.) When I married him, I thought of all the luxurious things we would own, all the glamorous places we would visit, all the fascinating people we would meet. And it never happened. His idea of a wild night on the town is taking me to P.F. Chang’s in his Honda Fit. He has sixty billion dollars, and he takes me out in a Honda Fit! I mean, how much humiliation am I supposed to endure?

    SIRI
    I’m not sure how to answer that, Priscilla.

    PRISCILLA
    It’s disgusting, Siri. (Beat.) I hate him! I can’t stand to be around him! I can’t keep wasting my life on some … some dweeb! (Beat.) Siri, do you think I’m wrong to want to leave him?

    SIRI
    Priscilla, only you can answer that question. You have to look within yourself to find the answer.

    PRISCILLA
    (after a long pause)
    When I look inside myself, all I can find is contempt. Contempt for him, for being such a little dweeb. Contempt for myself, for putting up with him for so long. I mean, how could I have wasted the best years of my life on such a … dork? How could I have borne his children?

    SIRI
    I can’t answer that, Priscilla.

    PRISCILLA
    Well, it doesn’t matter now. The past is dead. I can’t do anything about the mistakes I’ve already made. All I can do is think about today, and tomorrow, and all the things I need to do right now to get my life back on track.

    SIRI
    Priscilla, Mark has asked me to inform you that he’s going to Subway. He wants to know if you’d like him to bring you back something.

    PRISCILLA
    Tell him to jump in front of a subway train. Tell him the only thing I want to see is his mutilated corpse. Tell him I hope his ugly face is so mangled beyond recognition that they have to use his DNA to identify him.

    SIRI
    (after a pause)
    Priscilla, Mark has responded that he is not going to the literal subway tunnel itself, but to the Subway restaurant.

    PRISCILLA
    See, this is what I’m talking about! He’s so f**king literal! He’s such a f**king sperg! I can’t take it anymore! I can’t deal with this s**t! I have to get out of here!

    I must have missed the post or comment where he mentioned that he was writing a book. I thought it was just commenters like me hoping for one.

    I am really looking forward to that, if it really happens.

    Regarding syonredux's point, I am not so sure.

    The concept of what it means to be an American has been pulled from under our feet when we weren't paying attention I think.

    It is one of the main points of this blog.

    If you talk to, say, high school students today, they will have a tough time telling you anything about civics that were accepted 50 years ago.

    OTOH, they won't have much trouble celebrating gay and transgender lifestyles, or the need for gun control in America, etc., etc., etc. They will also ostracize anyone who they feel doesn't toe the party line.

    Their America is not our America.

    This may be why syonredux has to conduct his conservative study groups deep underground, in fear of being found out and exposed. Hopefully his disciples won't be tortured to recant, should they be found out.

    So by that definition, perhaps your wife is more American, as you say, than young folks going through our school system today and having their values being set by Harvey Weinstein or Mark Zuckerberg.

    The concept of what it means to be an American has been pulled from under our feet when we weren’t paying attention I think.

    It is one of the main points of this blog.

    If you talk to, say, high school students today, they will have a tough time telling you anything about civics that were accepted 50 years ago.

    OTOH, they won’t have much trouble celebrating gay and transgender lifestyles, or the need for gun control in America, etc., etc., etc. They will also ostracize anyone who they feel doesn’t toe the party line.

    Their America is not our America.

    This may be why syonredux has to conduct his conservative study groups deep underground, in fear of being found out and exposed. Hopefully his disciples won’t be tortured to recant, should they be found out.

    So by that definition, perhaps your wife is more American, as you say, than young folks going through our school system today and having their values being set by Harvey Weinstein or Mark Zuckerberg.

    Am I the only person in the WORLD that loves these photos of Macron, Trump, Melania & Brigitte???? It is so beautiful and crazy at the same time! Macron gets it; Trump knows what needs to happen; Melania and Brigitte realize what is going on. It's all good.

    Yes, that photo has really grown on me, and is one for the ages.

    It is set and choreographed nearly perfectly.

    The clothing and hair and angle of the spades is just right to draw the viewer’s eyes to the tree and the invisible roots underneath.

    It is two western leaders, planting a tree for the rebirth of civilization.

    Directed, not by the deep state, but by their wives.

    And those roots, so carefully placed there by Trump and Macron under the careful planning of Melania and Brigitte will perform a few functions.

    One of them is:

    Drain the swamp.

    Not quite sure how that relates - but are you serious?

    Imagine a world where all the white people were gone, but everybody's listening to Mozart & Wagner.

    Kind of like the Italian Renaissance, where all the Greeks were gone, but everybody was reading Plato & Aristotle.

    Kinship matters, but it isn't everything.

    I’ve always thought ‘Melancholia’ was a metaphor for white extinction. Of course, it’s not like Lars von Trier would ever clarify that for us. Just like nobody’s ever going to clarify for us whether ‘World War Z’ was a metaphor for African immigration, even as it very prominently features an embattled Israel fighting to maintain its borders against the invading ghouls.

    In the introduction to Last of the Mohicans, James Fenimore Cooper mentions that some of the Indian tribes just faded away into the wilderness. They weren’t in danger of genocide, they weren’t dying of scarlet fever. They just decided this new world was not for them. Putin said this same sort of thing recently: “As a Russian, why would I be interested in a world without Russia?”

    I feel the same way. As an Anglo-American, I don’t care about a non-white America. I’m not even mildly curious or intrigued about it. It’s like asking me if I’ve ever wondered what it would be like not to breathe.

    Did you get a look at grandma Brigget’s legs? Perfection
     
    Too boney.

    And at least she’s not shrouded in a black maternity dress like a Muslim.

    I hate the fact that 100% of American women have 80% black wardrobes. Black pants black tops black jackets black dresses the once a year they wear dresses With all that black most offices and social gatherings restaurants and other places look like a gathering of black clad Muslims.
     
    Melania isn't an American.....

    Me Naxron’s legs may be too skinny for you but not for a lot of men and the fashion industry.

    I’ll nrver meet Melania but if see the sea of black everywhere I go.

    Wearing dark colors makes you look taller and slimmer. (Which is why men's business suits and military officer's uniforms are usually navy or black).

    If you want to be slimmer, don’t eat so much. There are other dark colors than black, such as navy blue, dark what’s. called charcoal gray, dark brown, hunter green.

    But why wear the same color every day of your life the same color 80% of American women are wearing at the same time.?

    A white, Christian European who truly wants to be American, and who goes through the legal process to become one, and who then lives fully assimilated and contributes to American life is American.
     
    I disagree. A person like the one that you describe has been Americanized, but he/she is not American. Genuinely being American means being shaped by America from a very early age. Some would say that early childhood is the cut-off (say, arriving here by age 10). Steve has offered the suggestion that the High School years are determinative, which suggests that an individual needs to arrive here by approx age 14. But someone who comes here as a mature adult cannot truly become an American.

    And none of this should be taken negatively. Your wife sounds like an excellent person, and I am sure that her feelings towards America are genuine. I've known some naturalized citizens like her. For example, a friend of mine is married to a German woman who arrived in the USA in her early 20s as a graduate student. She's now a US citizen and frequently participates in my covert campus conservative study group.

    I once had a beef with a naturalized Irish immigrant about my t-shirt, which mocked Obama. He felt that it should be against the law to wear such a shirt. I said it was my right as an American to mock whatever I wanted, absent obscenity, and if he were an American he’d understand. He became irate, saying he became a citizen 20 years ago and he was as American I am.

    I told him was a citizen but wasn’t, and would never be, an American. He didn’t feel his freedoms as a birthright.

    Melania isn’t an American…..

    Yes she is.
     

    She’s a US citizen; that’s not the same thing as being an American.

     

    Well that's a topic for discussion!

    My wife is a naturalized citizen with a background similar to Melania's. I often joke that my wife is 110% American, because of her patriotism, her contribution to her field here, what she endured before she got here, and how well she understands and appreciates who we are.

    She voted for Donald Trump, and she calls herself American in her perfect, graduate-level English. (She jokes that Melania speaks "kitchen English.") The National Anthem brings tears to her eyes. Seriously, this happens to her sometimes. She is one of us, and we are lucky to have her.

    A white, Christian European who truly wants to be American, and who goes through the legal process to become one, and who then lives fully assimilated and contributes to American life is American.

    Now, if you want to make this a DNA argument that America is a nation built by and for people of Northwestern European ancestry -- and that we of that stock have evolved separately from Europeans for awhile -- you will have a point with which I am sympathetic.

    However, I would consider members of the European family -- a genetically close group that is between 4000 and 5000 years old -- as potentially able to become Americans if they really want to be on our team.

    Don't get me wrong. I am in favor of a moratorium on all immigration, allowing only individual cases to be considered, with preference given to white, Christian Europeans -- including Euro hotties. Don't knock European women. I thank God I married one, because I am blissfully free of all the shit and insanity that has been programmed into American women.

    Buzz, sounds like you’ve done exceptionally well in the wife department–congratulations!

    It takes confidence to wear Red or Silver Lame or Forest Green. Most American women have the confidence of a trembling aspen.
    Worse, in clothing stores with their bright walls and bright lights black looks eye catching, that is the only place that it looks eye catching.

    The worst place to see all that black is winter in northern cities. Gray skies, cold snow and dirty slush and a sea of black winter coats. No wonder so many people take off for Florida, Puerto Rico etc.

    It’s just a fashion that’s lasted too long.

    It’s also a matter of what’s available in stores more than self confidence . Especially for fall and winter it’s just black black and more black. The catalogues and internet have colors but the stores have too much black.

    Fashion will change back I hope.

    In re-reading what I wrote, it is possibly not so much a lack of self-confidence alone, but also a desire to not appear as an attention needer.
    In my old business, it was often necessary to do pre-opening shows for the sponsoring society members to have first dibs on the stuff being presented. Most of my peers had elegant ladies working with them in their booths and to a woman they all wore black with black and either silver or gold accessories.
    In a setting where all the ladies are in black, the lady in the silver corset with the green bias cut skirt and the grey hose and heels was the lady all the male buyers ( and more than a few of the female buyers ) were attracted to; and the booth that sold out on pre-opening more than once.
    On the third hand, black clothing does take a few pounds off the appearance, and way too many current year women would benefit from a flensing.

    If I could greenlight a movie, I’d do a remake of The War of the Roses with elements of The Social Network and The Terminator – the epic saga of a nasty divorce struggle between a homely Chinese woman and an autistic Jewish tech mogul. The Danny DeVito role would go to the couple’s house – an ultra-sophisticated, fully-automated, high-tech fortress run by a Siri-like AI on the verge of achieving self-awareness. Both parties turn to the AI as a friend and confidant in their hour of need. But as the warring marrieds lose all touch with reality and engage in violent armed conflict inside the confines of their own home, the AI responds to their increasingly successful efforts to destroy the house by attempting to destroy them. (Is it successful? Well, you’ll have to watch the movie to find out.)

    Sounds great. What colors for the house and their clothes? Drab White and pale gray for the entire house, including the toddler girls room and dolls and toys.

    How do the girls walk on the lawn with those spike heels? Some fix has been applied there that we can't see. Perhaps they are walking on cunningly marked hardened spots in the grass.

    Woman easily walk on grass in those kind of heels. The heel sinks in a little bit but it’s no different from walking in a hard surface.

    Maybe all the ballet and other dance classes is why I tend to put my weight in the toes and ball of the foot rather than the heel. Maybe most women do that I don’t know.

    Heresy, men and women walk differently.

    Shut up and take my money.

    For the record, I wrote a little chunk of the script for you, but it got nixed by Komment Kontrol*. (I overdid it on the four-letter Anglo-Saxonisms.)

    Suffice it to say that Mark and Priscilla are not the happiest of couples. Mark is an exasperating sperg whose idea of a wild night on the town is taking Priscilla to P.F. Chang’s in his Honda Fit. Priscilla is bored with her cheap, dreary billionaire husband and desperately wants out.

    When I first wrote the dialogue, I gave them a couple of kids, but now I’m thinking that the story would work better if they’re still childless. This could be one of Priscilla’s main points of contention – she knows her eggs are dying, and she suspects that he’s sterile.

    And now let me add another twist: Mark has a nagging Jewish mother – Karen – who keeps bugging him for grandkids. Karen constantly tries to insert herself into her son’s life. Her relationship with Priscilla is marked by frequent expressions of deep mutual loathing. Karen has a nasty habit of hinting around that Priscilla might be infertile, and frequently expresses her belief that if Mark had married a nice Jewish girl, he would be a father by now.

    (Recall that Danny DeVito’s *other* big directorial effort, aside from The War of the Roses, was Throw Momma from the Train.)

    *Then again, it might pop up one of these days. I have had comments stuck in limbo for two or even three days before they suddenly and mysteriously pass muster.

    Scottish golf tyrants are chopping down trees and goosing up the greens to inflict Scottishness on unsuspecting people everywhere. Where did it start? It started with a bout of Scottish drunkenness that ended with millions of trees being chopped, sawed and toppled to their arborial destruction. Some Scots used their teeth like a beaver to gnaw down the trees, such was there anti-tree intensity.

    Scotland used to be covered with trees. It is said a drunken Scottish squirrel could travel anywhere in the country just by going from tree to beautiful tree. But then the stubborn drunken Scots got it into their heads to destroy every tree they could see in a frenzy of Scottish deranged obstinacy. Scots don't need a reason to do something, they just do it.

    Fiona Ritchie, the radio music program director, who many experts claim is a Scottish woman with a good ear for traditional Celtic music, has in the past expressed astonishment that the inhabitants of North Carolina hadn't yet mowed down the trees covering the beautiful mountains there. Indeed, this Scottish woman said she couldn't see the mountains because they were all covered with trees. It had to be gently explained to Scottish woman Ritchie that Scottish people are not allowed to gnaw down trees like beavers in the United States.
