    I always laugh at his newer films....they dub over his voice w redneck voices and use body doubles so obvious you can't help but laugh. It's like watching Manos Hands of Fate.

    Also because Jenny was a professional flirt; playmate of the year, I believe. SS has been off the radar for awhile.

    I haven’t seen her old MTV show for a long time, but I remember thinking at the time that Jenny McCarthy was genuinely funny, which I thought was a little strange, even at the time. She had an off-the-wall and even sometimes bizarre sense of humor, and I wasn’t quite sure how such an attractive woman would develop such a thing. You’d assume she’d just sort of play it safe, counting on her looks to carry her.

    Or maybe I just liked watching her, so I would have found her funny no matter what she did. Hard to say.

    What I can say for sure is that I miss the Jenny McCarthy style of female comedian. Crazy autism theories or not, I’d rather watch her than her cousin Melissa, or Amy Schumer, or any of the other ones we have today.

    That was the Northeast (or Great Lakes, as it were) Irish Catholic thing. Gift of gab that elevated her a bit beyond blonde bimbo. It lasted a nanosecond before she got scooped up by various agents, managers, and anyone else she could sleep her way to the top with (rather unnecessarily, I should think. Even for a blonde, she didn't turn full joke until sometime in 2007 or thereabout).

    When Brunton broke up with his then-boyfriend, he spoke with Takei. "He said, 'Let me know what your new number is' and I did. And not long after we broke up and I moved out, George called me," Brunton recalls.

    Takei, as Brunton tells it, invited him to dinner and the theater. "He was very good at consoling me and understanding that I was upset and still in love with my boyfriend," Brunton says. "He was a great ear. He was very good about me spilling my heart on my sleeve."

    The two men went back to the actor's condo for a drink the same night. "We have the drink and he asks if I would like another," Brunton recalls. "And I said sure...

  14. This whole thing is getting stupid, and I’m not talking about the “harassment,” I’m talking about the gleeful and scolding reporting. Under other circumstances, I think Steve and a lot of commenters on this blog would be deriding the “harassment” under question. Obviously, Weinstein was a manipulative scumbag who was actually abusing his power to take advantage of women sexually. However, a lot of the other incidents coming out of the entertainment industry fall in the gray zone of human behavior that arises because our Chthonic sexuality doesn’t fit nicely into the Apollonian world of social niceties, business ethics, and egalitarian democracy.

    There is also the fact that our "Apollonian" social ethic has been rather "Cartesian" for quite some time now, with all the stiff deterministic brittleness that that framework imposes. When I talk to liberal women about the subject it quickly becomes clear that they actually believe human behavior can be regulated more or less "ad hoc." This thinking leads to the absurd legal dualism of "age of consent" laws where for example a 50-year-old man can marry an 18-year-old girl without her parents' consent but a 23-year-old grad who can only recently sprout a full beard cannot bang a horny 17-year-old cheerleader regardless of her theoretical "maturity" level, with or without her parents' rubber stamp. This is also what makes liberals assume it is possible to get the black and brown masses that have flooded the West to behave like white people with different paint jobs while not simultaneously stamping out their culture and religion. Liberal sociology is so Cartesian it atomizes not only individuals but also behaviors, so that no moral worth is attached to human relationships or to human context.

    The "gray zone" you speak of isn't gray at all but rather an inevitable opportunistic spike emanating from such ad hoc mixing. We are expected to mix male and female soldiers in combat units and the way to solve the epidemic of rapes that ensue is to "teach men not to rape" - said "men" being for the most part 18 to 25 years old, built like metal and endowed with an IQ hovering around 100. College campuses have implanted the most revolting and humiliating ways of dealing with the "rape crisis" by assuming guilt until proven inmocent (only they don't bother to allow a chance to prove the innocence) because for ideological and financial reasons they refused to acknowledge the obvious truth that mixed dorms, fraternity and sorority houses and the absence of curfews are not amenable to the best behavior of 18- to 21-year-olds.

    And while all of a sudden liberals and feminists are trying to "enlist" men to "help" in the "fight against sexism," I don't see any of them pushing for greater lenience for European firearms ownership or the relaxation of European restrictions on resort to lethal force to defend oneself or one's loved ones.

    The legitimacy of the accusations has nothing to do with anything. Seeing verminous media power brokers burn is an eminently worthy end unto itself, irrespective of the means. All the better that they're being hoisted by the petard of their own feminist frankenstein monster.

    Yoga guru to stars Bikram Choudhury faces arrest over $8 million sex case bill

    The founder of Bikram yoga is facing arrest for failing to pay more than $6 million ($8 million) to his former lawyer in a sexual harassment case.
    Bikram Choudhury, hot yoga guru, seeks US bankruptcy

    Chicago: Bikram Choudhury Yoga, the studio that popularised hot yoga, has filed for US Chapter 11 bankruptcy after being dogged by $US16.7 million ($23.4 million) in legal judgements and numerous lawsuits and allegations of sexual misconduct.

    Mr Choudhury faces sexual assault lawsuits filed by six other women, five of whom accuse him of rape. Some are his former yoga students.

    Miki JaffaBodden, Bikram Yoga’s former head of legal, is owed $8 million, according to court papers. Petra Starke, a former Obama White House lawyer who became the chief executive of the Bikram Yoga College of India in 2013, is owed $5.1 million.

    Founder Bikram Choudhury, who built a worldwide following with classes of 26 yoga postures in rooms heated to 40.6, has been accused of sexual assault by his yoga practitioners, students, instructors and teacher trainees.

    According to the filing, Bikram Yoga’s liabilities are worth up to $50 million, and it has assets of up to $1 million.

    In May, a Los Angeles judge signed off on an arrest warrant for Choudhury, who fled the country in 2016 after Bodden’s claim was revealed.

    What I’m thoroughly enjoying covers some recent topics here.

    Here we have a 24-carat loose-cannon Irish mean girl declaring an effective de facto jihad agaist the Jewish Hollywood elite, eithout explicitly calling out the Jews. As long as she veers away from that old trap of speaking truthfully about the Jews of Hollywood themselves, the meltdown can continue with no serious complications–Larry David’s satiric observations aside.

    Of course, it also happens to be putting a harsh taint on many movies and TV shows that I loved. It’s harder to enjoy an old favorite film when you realize you now despise the lead or supporting actor, director or producer of that film.

    But then again, we’re in the Trump era of America. Trump means nothing, if not cleaning house. Perhaps it’s the price we pay to dislodge these sociopathic parasites who enable each other whether good or bad, to an obvious fault.

    On the flip side, I thought “Good Will Hunting” was a pretentious, shallow poser piece anyway. I don’t mind that morose, self-conscious thalydamide movie eating the shit it should. I always thought ever-maudlin Robin Williams’ Oscar was due to Hollywood Jewish chicanery. Who wins an Oscar who can’t be bothered to get a Boston accent somewhat right?

    I hope Rose goes after Louis CK’s manager. That Becky fellow. He clearly enabled Louis to carry on as he did, with full play by plays given to him by at least some of Louis’ masturbatory interests. That makes him worse than Louis CK.

    And like my grandfather use to say before he died when he watched Seagal on TBS….”he’s so fuckin fat now he can’t even kick above his waist any more…..”

     

    Seagal could have a second career as the unlikely grandpa of family comedies. If they still do those anymore.

    “Unlikely Grandpa” would be a fantastic name for a Twitter troll account.

    I’ve done a few bits on the recent trend of public panics. Last year’s fake news stuff was in large part a panic. All sorts of crackpot stories started whizzing around social media. The PizzaGate stuff is a good example. People on our side don’t often notice, but Progs had their own panics. I think the Russian Hacking fiasco got out of control in part because the Left was sure Trump was the 13th Invisible Hitler.

    The most famous panic is the Great Fear, just before the French Revolution. Public trust had eroded to the point where any negative story about the king and ruling class was believed. Maybe these panics we’re seeing is the result of a similar dynamic. Faith in public institutions and trust in the people running them is collapsing.

    This whole thing is getting stupid, and I'm not talking about the "harassment," I'm talking about the gleeful and scolding reporting. Under other circumstances, I think Steve and a lot of commenters on this blog would be deriding the "harassment" under question. Obviously, Weinstein was a manipulative scumbag who was actually abusing his power to take advantage of women sexually. However, a lot of the other incidents coming out of the entertainment industry fall in the gray zone of human behavior that arises because our Chthonic sexuality doesn't fit nicely into the Apollonian world of social niceties, business ethics, and egalitarian democracy.

    The legitimacy of the accusations has nothing to do with anything. Seeing verminous media power brokers burn is an eminently worthy end unto itself, irrespective of the means. All the better that they’re being hoisted by the petard of their own feminist frankenstein monster.

    Then, they came for Haven Monahan at our Southern frat house, but the whole house kept mum because no one had ever heard of the guy – we laughed and sent them over to Σ Φ (cause they stiffed us on 2 kegs last week).

  38. Not saying always blame the woman, but this is ludicrous.
    McCarthy made it big by gynecologically posing for the world in Playboy.
    She then somewhat successfully crossed over to “respectable”entertainment.
    Is it really that strange to hope to see her naked or for her to be surprised about it?
    I don’t feel sorry for most of these victims in the entertainment industry.
    If a producer wants to trade sex for a part and you agree, how can you
    complain years later?

    I don’t know exactly how it is different, but it seems so for a factory worker being asked
    to trade sex for a promotion.
    Timing is one thing: one needs to report this shit right away.
    Another is ambiguity: one can’t be vacillating between yes and no.
    Another is the real connection between power/money and sexual attraction.
    It also depends on the structure of ownership; there is a difference between working at McDonald’s versus the Weinstein Company.

    This stuff is part of the human condition and can never be eliminated.
    As long as there are status differences between individuals(Iron Law of Oligarchy tells us there always will be), people will try to exploit the differences(in both directions !).
    It is the Socialist utopian dream to eliminate this.
    It is only a dream.

  39. From LA Times…

    However, McCarthy has spoken of her 1995 encounter before. She previously shared her story in a 1998 interview with Movieline…

    The actor’s spokesman has previously denied McCarthy’s accusations, telling the Daily Beast that Warner Bros. casting for the film confirmed that McCarthy never auditioned for a role in “Under Siege 2″ and “her claim is completely false.”

    I feel like there should be a Liars and Truthtellers solution here, but there appear to be two liars contradicting each other.

    Further detailing that encounter on her Sirius XM show on Thursday, McCarthy, now 45, explained that she arrived for the audition wearing a muumuu so that the casting crew would pay attention to her face and performance.

    She was, probably, auditioning for the role of “Sarah Ryback” in “Under Siege 2.” I doubt very much that the casting crew would pay attention to her performance under any circumstances. In fact, maybe the muumuu was covering the only thing they were interested in seeing, which would explain why Seagal asked her to take it off. Also, I note that a muumuu, while shapeless, is also very easy and very fast to take off. Also, isn’t “Ryback” a bond female lead name, as in “Ryback and shink of Engrand”?

    However, Seagal was the only one in the room and took a seat on a sofa near a fireplace and invited her to sit next to him and “relax,” she said.

    “I said, ‘No, thank you! I’m just really excited to read for this part. And I have so much energy I need to stand,’” McCarthy said.

    McCarthy recalled that he kept bragging about himself and told her there would be nudity in the film. When she told him she knew there wasn’t nudity, McCarthy said he then said, “There is off-camera nudity,” and asked her to lower her dress for him.

    I think Seagal learned that one when he was in Japan. It parallels a similar story about Kurosawa and Toshiro Mifune.

    “I paused, I looked up at him, went from shocked to sadness. My eyes filled with water

    Perfect! You got the part!

    I yelled, ‘Go buy my Playboy video — it’s on sale for $19.99′

    LOL. Deep down, she despises herself for doing that.

    As she was leaving, she said, Seagal followed her to her car and said not to tell anyone “or else.”

    “I was the last girl that day. How many girls had to take off their clothes? How many girls had to do more? It just so grossed me out,” she said.

    If she were the last girl, maybe… none of the others?

    When Brunton broke up with his then-boyfriend, he spoke with Takei. "He said, 'Let me know what your new number is' and I did. And not long after we broke up and I moved out, George called me," Brunton recalls.

    Takei, as Brunton tells it, invited him to dinner and the theater. "He was very good at consoling me and understanding that I was upset and still in love with my boyfriend," Brunton says. "He was a great ear. He was very good about me spilling my heart on my sleeve."

    The two men went back to the actor's condo for a drink the same night. "We have the drink and he asks if I would like another," Brunton recalls. "And I said sure...

    Well, like it or not, women have gained significant power in recent decades in western societies and are rearranging the furniture a bit to better suit their sensibilities.

    So, if you are a woman, the emerging new norms make lots of sense.

    And anyone going around hitting on their employees at work is a dirtball. I don’t have any daughters but if i did, I wouldn’t want them working in places where skeevy creepy trolls are stalking them instead of taking it to Tinder.

    Do you? Don’t worry, if you’ve been getting laid in a healthy way, you will continue to do so. It is just the creepy guys who have to abuse their money/position/status, and not only just on the job with employees, but anywhere in society with any women that are being outed thanks to the power of social media.

    I look at this as a very, very good thing, this sexual harassment trend. We are setting up a more civil society with a return to decorum. People are being held accountable for despicable behavior. Standards of sexual conduct are being raised.

    Isn’t this all the stuff the right/conservatives have been yapping about since the 60s? It is a start, but all you guys do is wring your hands because you are afraid you can’t ask out the receptionist (do these still exist?) who is fervently hoping you won’t.

    This really is technology making people’s lives better. There has been a lot of collateral damage due to the disruptive introduction of social media, but one can see some good coming out of it. The election of Trump, or, more accurately, the defeat of Clintonism. And now, women have 24×7 hotline to report creep-o guys.

    I don’t see anything to complain about in this scandal (which is part of secular trend) at all, including the fact that workplace conduct will be held to a higher standard in the future.

    As for Seagal, he’s another one of those characters whose name I see all the time over the years, but know nothing about, other than he is some macho actor with a Japan fetish or something. What’s up with him? Good thing Hugh Hefner is dead, how many charges would he be facing today?

    If you go back to my old posts, you’ll find anonguy not only predicted the Trump victory, but also said after which there would be a spiritual rebirth in this country.

    This is part of it, along with all the swamp creature slime and corruption on daily parade. Before a spiritual rebirth occurs, everyone has to be thoroughly appalled at current state of society’s mores. And all sorts of insitutions formerly held up as moral avatars (MSM, Hollywood) are being exposed as slime infested dens of vipers.

    Anyhow, it is all coming together like I predicted.

    You realize that the definition of "creepy" (and what a feminine little word that is) is completely up to the female in any dispute over propriety? If Brad Pitt/Tom Brady/Denzel does something, that thing -- whatever it is -- is NOT "creepy", whereas a homely, unathletic, nondominant guy who does the exact same thing, in exactly the same time, place, and manner is tagged as "creepy" and can expect a quick trip to HR. The entire concept you espouse is one-sided and features an automatic presumption of "guilt"...with guilt being circularly defined as "creepy".

    Head on over to the Chateau for some red-pilling, or just watch this SNL clip.

    This. Exactly. You know, a passage in The Godfather depicted Tom Hagan going out to Hollywood to talk that director Jack Woltz into giving Johnny Fontaine, Don Corleone's Godson, the part in the new movie. Famous this, the end result was the bloody, severed head of the director's prized racing stud resting in Jack Woltz's bed for him to discover upon awakening. Along the way through this passage in the book was a mother who brought her young 12 year old to be raped by said director. In books, in film, even then, in the 60s, Hollywood was raping women AND children if the lore in the book was accurate. The film left that bit of depravity out. Mario Puzo was never taken to court for his accounting for Hollywood and Vegas in the Godfather, but a few of the actors in Godfather never worked again even if Caan, Pacino and Keaton came out ok..

    The Casting Couch, everyone got a turn. As Second City Cop would put it, file it under un-fucking-believable. And they told mothers not to let their sons grow up to be cowboys. Hollywood even corrupted THAT, heh..

    Gotta give ol' Steve his props. Despite a glaring lack of athleticism, he has parlayed a collection of goofily-choreographed "martial arts" moves into a multi-million dollar fortune.

    Wayyyy back in 1992, he talked some $#!t about - yes - Chuck Norris, and challenged the whole world to fight, saying "No man dare face me". In response, 12 actual fighters publicly lined up for a crack at Steve's self-proclaimed title, but wouldntcha know it, he ducked them all. This enterprising lad drove to L.A. and haunted Steve's dojo for 6 months, to no avail:

    Now nearing retirement age, Steve just might get another chance to actually, you know, fight somebody:

    @Nico

    a lot of the other incidents coming out of the entertainment industry fall in the gray zone of human behavior that arises because our Chthonic sexuality doesn’t fit nicely into the Apollonian world of social niceties, business ethics, and egalitarian democracy
     
    There is also the fact that our "Apollonian" social ethic has been rather "Cartesian" for quite some time now, with all the stiff deterministic brittleness that that framework imposes. When I talk to liberal women about the subject it quickly becomes clear that they actually believe human behavior can be regulated more or less "ad hoc." This thinking leads to the absurd legal dualism of "age of consent" laws where for example a 50-year-old man can marry an 18-year-old girl without her parents' consent but a 23-year-old grad who can only recently sprout a full beard cannot bang a horny 17-year-old cheerleader regardless of her theoretical "maturity" level, with or without her parents' rubber stamp. This is also what makes liberals assume it is possible to get the black and brown masses that have flooded the West to behave like white people with different paint jobs while not simultaneously stamping out their culture and religion. Liberal sociology is so Cartesian it atomizes not only individuals but also behaviors, so that no moral worth is attached to human relationships or to human context.

    The "gray zone" you speak of isn't gray at all but rather an inevitable opportunistic spike emanating from such ad hoc mixing. We are expected to mix male and female soldiers in combat units and the way to solve the epidemic of rapes that ensue is to "teach men not to rape" - said "men" being for the most part 18 to 25 years old, built like metal and endowed with an IQ hovering around 100. College campuses have implanted the most revolting and humiliating ways of dealing with the "rape crisis" by assuming guilt until proven inmocent (only they don't bother to allow a chance to prove the innocence) because for ideological and financial reasons they refused to acknowledge the obvious truth that mixed dorms, fraternity and sorority houses and the absence of curfews are not amenable to the best behavior of 18- to 21-year-olds.

    And while all of a sudden liberals and feminists are trying to "enlist" men to "help" in the "fight against sexism," I don't see any of them pushing for greater lenience for European firearms ownership or the relaxation of European restrictions on resort to lethal force to defend oneself or one's loved ones.

    Well said.

    Not saying always blame the woman, but this is ludicrous.
    McCarthy made it big by gynecologically posing for the world in Playboy.
    She then somewhat successfully crossed over to "respectable"entertainment.
    Is it really that strange to hope to see her naked or for her to be surprised about it?
    I don't feel sorry for most of these victims in the entertainment industry.
    If a producer wants to trade sex for a part and you agree, how can you
    complain years later?

    I don't know exactly how it is different, but it seems so for a factory worker being asked
    to trade sex for a promotion.
    Timing is one thing: one needs to report this shit right away.
    Another is ambiguity: one can't be vacillating between yes and no.
    Another is the real connection between power/money and sexual attraction.
    It also depends on the structure of ownership; there is a difference between working at McDonald's versus the Weinstein Company.

    This stuff is part of the human condition and can never be eliminated.
    As long as there are status differences between individuals(Iron Law of Oligarchy tells us there always will be), people will try to exploit the differences(in both directions !).
    It is the Socialist utopian dream to eliminate this.
    It is only a dream.

    I don’t know exactly how it is different…

    It’s the “do as I say, not as I do” hypocrisy. It’s the “it’s okay when we do it, it’s different when you do it” double standard. It’s the morally superior attitude. It’s the above-it-all pose.

    In life that’s filled with unfairness, it’s my “right to not be disappointed.” Ever.

    You can look it up, it’s right there in the Constitution…or something…

  59. Another Jewish perv in Hollywood called out, Andrew Kreisberg, executive producer of some of Warner bro’s biggest DC comics series, is suspended after 15 women and 4 men came forward to accuse him of decades of sexual misconduct.

    Rolling Stones co-founder Jann Wenner is also accused of demanding sex from freelance writer Ben Ryan in exchange for a lucrative contract. Wenner is again, Jewish.

    This is what happens when a people who grew up on moral relativism get to position of power. They not only commit heinous acts, but use their positions to cover up for one another for decades.

    Steven Segal is really something. If ego translated to fighting ability, he’d be Muhammed, “I’m Hard,” Bruce Lee. The Italian guy on Mad TV did a tear-inducingly-funny send up. That said, he’s said some “WTF, I love Steven Segal” nationalist stuff recently, the specifics of which elude my memory. Somebody needed to step up, since I found out James Woods isn’t Jewish.

    Stepped on my meat: that should be “WTF, I love Steven Segal now.”

    Why is this one not jaw dropping?

    Cuz everybody knows about Segal and women. E.g., he famously roughed up/terrorized his ex-wife, Kelly Labrock.

    and I wasn’t quite sure how such an attractive woman would develop such a thing. You’d assume she’d just sort of play it safe, counting on her looks to carry her.

    I’ve seen very little of her, but she just seems to be smart with a motor mouth. In the right kind of family (kidders) this results in a class clown. Point being, she probably didn’t have to develop it; it’s the way she is.

    This whole thing is getting stupid, and I’m not talking about the “harassment,” I’m talking about the gleeful and scolding reporting. Under other circumstances, I think Steve and a lot of commenters on this blog would be deriding the “harassment” under question.

    But this latest scandal is not about patriarchy but about men remaining boys. Antony Weiner acts out his Middle School fantasies. A kind of Fratriarchy. And this frat-mentality isn’t just about Haven Monahan and Wasps. It’s everywhere. Lots of Jewish kids I knew joined frats and did WILD things.

    And their parents indulged them. There was no patriarchy to train them to be men.

    Contradictions just got too wild and Freud got fried.

    I’ve been increasingly suspecting that all of these ‘perv’ outings recently are in fact a carefully orchestrated attempt to cover up for Weinstein. He was the bombshell that started it all, and new girls were coming out of the woodworks practically every day for a while there. It was escalating, escalating, then, got thrown off by all these other guys. Now Weinstein is page 10 news. It could no longer be denied what he did, so the next best thing is to bury it in a sea of ‘everybody’s doing it’. Let’s not forget all his media contacts, his hiring of secret organizations to dig up smear campaigns on others before, etc.

    "First they came for the Mad Men guy and I said nothing because I'm not a horny post-menopausal female, if that's even possible ...

    Then, they came for the producers of MSNBC and I said nothing because, hell, I was the one who texted in the tip to begin with ...

    Then, they came for Deputy Barney Fife, and I said nothing not too much, besides "Barn, how do you expect to resist when you carry unloaded with just the one round in your shirt pocket!?"

    Then, they came for Haven Monahan at our Southern frat house, but the whole house kept mum because no one had ever heard of the guy - we laughed and sent them over to Σ Φ (cause they stiffed us on 2 kegs last week).

    Then they came for me and Steven Seagal, and I ran while he tried to round-house kick the bastards, but he couldn't kick above his waist. I'll FedEx some donuts to your cell block from Ole Mexico, Steve."

    Steve will train like a demon in his cell, lose all the avoirdupois, snap half-a-dozen Crip necks, bust outta The Belly of the Beast like a Shadow Man, go on a Flight of Fury over Deadly Ground, and deal out some two-fisted Urban Justice to A Dangerous Man whom he has Marked For Death.

    Well, like it or not, women have gained significant power in recent decades in western societies and are rearranging the furniture a bit to better suit their sensibilities.

    So, if you are a woman, the emerging new norms make lots of sense.

    And anyone going around hitting on their employees at work is a dirtball. I don't have any daughters but if i did, I wouldn't want them working in places where skeevy creepy trolls are stalking them instead of taking it to Tinder.

    Do you? Don't worry, if you've been getting laid in a healthy way, you will continue to do so. It is just the creepy guys who have to abuse their money/position/status, and not only just on the job with employees, but anywhere in society with any women that are being outed thanks to the power of social media.

    I look at this as a very, very good thing, this sexual harassment trend. We are setting up a more civil society with a return to decorum. People are being held accountable for despicable behavior. Standards of sexual conduct are being raised.

    Isn't this all the stuff the right/conservatives have been yapping about since the 60s? It is a start, but all you guys do is wring your hands because you are afraid you can't ask out the receptionist (do these still exist?) who is fervently hoping you won't.

    This really is technology making people's lives better. There has been a lot of collateral damage due to the disruptive introduction of social media, but one can see some good coming out of it. The election of Trump, or, more accurately, the defeat of Clintonism. And now, women have 24x7 hotline to report creep-o guys.

    I don't see anything to complain about in this scandal (which is part of secular trend) at all, including the fact that workplace conduct will be held to a higher standard in the future.

    As for Seagal, he's another one of those characters whose name I see all the time over the years, but know nothing about, other than he is some macho actor with a Japan fetish or something. What's up with him? Good thing Hugh Hefner is dead, how many charges would he be facing today?

    If you go back to my old posts, you'll find anonguy not only predicted the Trump victory, but also said after which there would be a spiritual rebirth in this country.

    This is part of it, along with all the swamp creature slime and corruption on daily parade. Before a spiritual rebirth occurs, everyone has to be thoroughly appalled at current state of society's mores. And all sorts of insitutions formerly held up as moral avatars (MSM, Hollywood) are being exposed as slime infested dens of vipers.

    Anyhow, it is all coming together like I predicted.

    You realize that the definition of “creepy” (and what a feminine little word that is) is completely up to the female in any dispute over propriety? If Brad Pitt/Tom Brady/Denzel does something, that thing — whatever it is — is NOT “creepy”, whereas a homely, unathletic, nondominant guy who does the exact same thing, in exactly the same time, place, and manner is tagged as “creepy” and can expect a quick trip to HR. The entire concept you espouse is one-sided and features an automatic presumption of “guilt”…with guilt being circularly defined as “creepy”.

    Head on over to the Chateau for some red-pilling, or just watch this SNL clip.

    Precisely correct, and my larger point.

    It seems to get overlooked that the infotainment industry as it has existed for the past century couldn't exist without parents whoring their own children to that Moloch. Worse in the Challahwood era.

    It seems to get overlooked that the infotainment industry as it has existed for the past century couldn’t exist without parents whoring their own children to that Moloch. Worse in the Challahwood era.

    This. Exactly. You know, a passage in The Godfather depicted Tom Hagan going out to Hollywood to talk that director Jack Woltz into giving Johnny Fontaine, Don Corleone’s Godson, the part in the new movie. Famous this, the end result was the bloody, severed head of the director’s prized racing stud resting in Jack Woltz’s bed for him to discover upon awakening. Along the way through this passage in the book was a mother who brought her young 12 year old to be raped by said director. In books, in film, even then, in the 60s, Hollywood was raping women AND children if the lore in the book was accurate. The film left that bit of depravity out. Mario Puzo was never taken to court for his accounting for Hollywood and Vegas in the Godfather, but a few of the actors in Godfather never worked again even if Caan, Pacino and Keaton came out ok..

    The Casting Couch, everyone got a turn. As Second City Cop would put it, file it under un-fucking-believable. And they told mothers not to let their sons grow up to be cowboys. Hollywood even corrupted THAT, heh..
