Welcome to this belated Blogbabble, brought to you by monkeys, halted by destiny & shitty dial up service! This blog has been funded by anger, depression & feeling slow in life, yippee!!!
Let’s check out the news that already happened by the time you read this!
MUSLIM TRAVEL BAN
We’re repeating history, the horrible aspects of history with the combover’s administration. Well, he’s making one of his promises true, Grab America by the hotdog in the hallway. Is that what he said? Hey, gay sexual harassment is real, but it’s not done by all homosexuals. Remember that you generalizing fucktards. Already he’s getting the KO’ed OK for doing tons & tons of stupid shit & everyone seems to be sitting back, watching their soap opera with zombies ‘Walking Dead’ while we’re in the process of becoming a dystopia. I wish I was exaggerating, but it’s the fucking truth. So here comes Trump saying (Not in his exact words, but may as well be) “Them damn towel heads, we gotta ban ‘em as well as dem brown juden!!! I love Muslims & Mexicans…I‘m IGNANT towards a few races & ignant towards my ignance because I‘m ignant!”
So there was an immigration ban that basically banned anyone who wasn’t American from entering the borders or leaving the airport, yet they call it a Muslim travel ban? What the fuck!!! UNLESSSS!!! Unless you’re Christian, that’s the fucked up loophole here. So if you worship Jesus with blonde hair, blue eyes & voted for Bush Chaney in both the 2000 & 2004 election, that grants you access to enter or visit a nation? By the way if Jesus existed, he’d be black, The Boondocks were right. Not only that, he’d be considered a filthy socialist liberal hippy by the conservative right.
There were a bunch of news reports of people in airports who weren’t allowed to leave just because they weren’t American in Trump’s sense of the word. So people with other forms of citizenship, like a green card or a work visa, weren’t granted access because of Trump’s obese suburban middle class, double chined, pinko California housewife face wouldn’t let them. He looks like those fat suburban ladies here in California who have been in the sun for too long, don’t tan well & her husband likes boats a little too much, as well as fishing in those boats & may be having sex with the fish he catches. Because she’s scared of her husband she decides to take out all of her frustrations onto her students because she’s a 3rd grade teacher. Yeah, that’s who Trump reminds me of, a bitch 3rd grade teacher with a sexless marriage & a husband who takes her for granted & takes it out on kids who have no business in her personal affairs, but feels she has to stab something because she was born in some Midwest hellhole among meth heads.
Earlier this week (As I write this) there was a guest speaker at I don’t know where, It may have been the Museum of tolerance I do believe. The guest speakers were two Japanese immigrants who were just children when the US Government hauled them & their family off to an internment camp. They’re fucking disappointed & not in the ‘You spilled my Kool-Aid’ sort of disappointment, but in a ‘Are you fucking serious, America?’ kind of way. Is there any other kind of disappointment you expected? I seriously don’t get why Trump’s ilk doesn’t see what they’re doing is wrong? The couple basically went on to say that the mass deportations, the whole idea of putting Muslims into some registry & the whole generalization of a race by the actions of a few is not far off from what America thought during WWII.
Children, this is what happens when you dick around in History class. History class, the reason why I like it is because it‘s like story time with non-fiction. Along with that was I had two kickass history teachers. I had a history teacher who taught world history & actually traveled the world as a ship worker. The second teacher was American history & he was pretty much my intro to being an Independent & he was very animated when he talked about the history lesson. Think circa 1983 Eddie Murphy telling a classroom about American history, it was that fun. Kids, all of you still in public school, memorize the shit & think about how we went from slaves & crowded assembly lines with children workers to now. Both (Insert current residence here) history & world history are must haves in anyone’s curriculum, except Algebra II, fuck that shit. There’s nothing hard about History, it’s not like Algebra II where there are algorithims & shit. God I hate Algebra II & Geometry, fuck that shit too. Shapes with numbers, someone must’ve eaten the wrong shrooms.
I’m pretty limited to what I enjoy on YouTube, especially when it comes to these independent content creators. Ever since I first got internet access in 2008 I have enjoyed the videos of the Angry Video Game Nerd, Nostalgia Critic, Cinema Snob & a bunch of others that I’ve come to discover over the years & I‘m always on the lookout for something to either inform or make me laugh. Network TV pisses me off too much, Internet content is comfort viewing for me. There are some I adore, some I pretty much never go back to & some I just don’t understand the appreciation for. I don’t get the love for Angry Joe or Pew Die Pie, but then again Pew Die Pie hits a totally different audience. Markiplier is not for me, but dude has a magnificent speaking voice. If I ever get in the market for audio books, he’s the first guy I’m hiring to read my stuff! Then comes Jonn Tronn, I don’t really get his popularity too, none of his stuff made me laugh out loud, but he’s not the worst I’ve seen. Believe me, there are seas upon seas of a bunch of amateur movie/video game reviewers who think they’re ‘That Guy With The Glasses’ material & some who are better than the folks at TGWTG (Cine Masochist).
So Jonn Tronn has made it clear of who he leans towards in the political spectrum, he’s admitted he’s very right winged which I must add isn’t reflected in any of his works. Imagine that? Jonn Tronn making jokes about shoving poor people into cramped prison-like assisted housing, now that’s a very messed up republican sense of humor. I know how they work, during oral sex the women wear a mask of Richard Nixon in order for the guy to get hard. Twisted shit, thank you ‘30 Rock’ for exposing the truth of republican fellatio!
How does forensics investigate a Republican murder? They can’t, their DNA is all the same. Heyyooooooohhh!!!!!!! (I don’t claim originality on that one.)
So Jonn Tronn is getting all this backlash & his subscribe numbers have decreased. Hey, it’s a free market, everyone’s entitled to like & dislike, but here is one question everyone should take into account when it comes to following artists & celebrities. Can you separate the art from the artist?
Now I’ve never been a fan of Jonn Tronn before the news broke out, but there are plenty of artists & celebrities I don’t follow mainly because they’re a piece of shit. Woody Allen, well his comedy movies (Manhattan) were funny. I might rewatch that one, but after he decided to go the sophisticated New Yorker but still neurotic schpiel in pretentious black & white movies, that’s when I lost him, along with his marrying his adoptive daughter. What pisses me off about that is he continues to get work & the Academy Awards people keep on kissing his ass!
“I am an artiste!!! It’s aaahhhttt!!!! I had a stiffer for my daughter” I always hated those types of folks who paint a line, put it up on the Louvre & a bunch of pretentious dickfaces read way too deep into simple shit like a black line. They suck & they got the gall to call paintings like Frazetta‘s work ‘Trash‘. Fuck those sprockets!!! Then there’s the bigeee here, Victor Salva, the director of Powder, Jeepers Creepers 1 & 2. I admit, when I saw these two films I thought they were directed by women because it contained a lot of shirtless guys. It wasn’t until later that someone told me the director was a convicted pedophile & all those scenes became all too clear. I can’t watch those movies anymore, especially trying to watch Powder. I remember thinking “Oh I’m sure this movie won’t be too pedo or anything.” I change it to one of the Starz channels (Back when I had that package) & what’s the first thing I see? Underage guy washing himself in a water fountain & that whole scene looked like it was shot like 90‘s pamper commercial. Sickening shit & now I’m hearing he’s trying to get another movie off the floor & thankfully the right people are protesting this. I believe I posted the link when the news broke on the Facebook page & the only response I got was from some guy who I believe is some pedo rehabilitation guy who went on some thing about rehabilitating pedophiles so they can be able to work a job without diddling kids. I left that comment untouched to see if there would be backlash & an internet fight. Believe me, I was seeing if all of you guys out there are alive or just dead fish. The BlackTime facebook page is like a convenience store while all the potheads are busy working, pretty quiet. So fuck you, Victor DeSilva.
So in this issue, nobody is in the wrong. It’s one thing if Jonn Tronn is sponsored by the Republican party & every second of his video has to contain a Trump advertisement, but luckily it didn‘t come to that. Then you get people like ‘Shoe on Head’ who are clear of their political leanings in their videos. Why do I watch her stuff? There’s a miniscule percentage of things I agree with her on, not only that but remember in the last blog when I talked about the girl who was a little too close for comfort? Shoe on Head looks exactly like the spitting image of the girl I was talking about, except she’s pale & she wears a lot of eye makeup. It’s pretty hilarious, fucking creepy & also deeply sad in a way. So there’s that, sheeeeee cute. The message on this is before you start to rant about an entertainer’s political preferences, check whether you can separate the art from the artist.
Y COMIX NO FANNY?
On that same tone of separating the art from the artist, here comes another news story in which a comic shop owner sent in a rant to ‘Bleeding Cool News’ where he placed his thoughts about comics tackling social & political events.
(Wanna read his rant? : https://www.bleedingcool.com/2017/02/03/publishers-get-politics-comic-book-stores/ )
In short, Phil Boyle is basically ranting about how it seems all comics today are doing is reflecting real world issues & they should go back to being all out fiction. This rant coming out of the announcement that Image comics (Walking Dead, Saga, etc.) will be releasing Variant covers (Stupid concept to make people spend more money on the same comic) that will be sold with the proceeds going to Planned Parenthood. He’s pissed that he’s built a safe space that blocks out the real world & provides escapism to his customers. He feels that whenever comics tackle the real world, you’re destroying the walls he’s set up to protect people & his customers from the big bad world. This sounds like some ‘Life is Beautiful’ shit right here. “Oh no Lorenzo (or whatever the fuck his name was from that movie. It was an Italian film), Nazis don‘t exist. Let‘s ignore the real world bullshit & go to imagination land.”
Comics can be big dumb fun that takes us away from the scary world. I admit, I collect comics not only because of the stories, but also because I need something to take me out of my busy work, the bright screens I spend most of my time looking through & out of the day to day trifles. The newspapers & TV news outlets report on nothing but negative shit, it’s enough to depress & drive people to insanity. Why aren’t people bitching about A.) The lack of news in both TV & Newspapers as well as B.) The grim sensationalism mainstream news always focuses on whenever tragedy strikes. Seriously, every time my mom watches the news (Local Univision news) there’s always a camera zooming in on a crying mother. It’s almost like the camera man is saying “Aww yeah, I’m gonna fap to this tonight!”
Moving on. I can kinda see where Phil Boyle is getting at; it seems like every form of entertainment today is pushing an agenda. You got entertainment in my politics, you got politics in my entertainment! I wasn’t against the idea of putting feminism in the 1st season of ‘Supergirl’, but the way they did it was much too preachy about it. Thankfully they toned it down & wrote it better in the later episodes as the series progressed. When every other comic in the stands is adding politics to make themselves seem more liberal to get in more sales numbers, it gets diluted & sickening after a while. Case in point, Marvel comics. I wasn’t against making Cap Marvel a female or having The Falcon take over the helm of Captain America, but the reason Marvel did it was because they saw financial gain in being progressive. In other words, it felt like they were being progressive because they’re struggling for the sales numbers rather than being progressive because it felt apt to take this approach in the overall story.
On the other side, comics are capable to emote a deep emotional response with the subject matter & ideas it pushes. The first issue of Captain America has Cap punching Hitler in the fucking face!!! Of course a kid would see that & think “Wow!!! Fock’n sick mate!” Today, we not only see that as awesome, but we also study that cover in both the artistic & historical context. A smart writer can reflect modern society using superheroes or hand drawn characters. Not too long ago I read Katsuhiro Otomo’s Mother Sarah (Shoutout to Junette Pierre for selling me those issues!) & while the first arc was basically an action packed adventure (About a mom searching the post nuke wasteland to find her two missing children), the second & third arc are shocking & satirical reflections of war & the harsh conditions of living in a war torn society. Since those comics were published in the 90’s, I believe that was a reflection of Bosnia or Iraq & what those folks were living through at the time. It’s still heartbreaking, especially the scene when the orphanage is under attack. I didn’t cry during ‘Schindler’s List’, but my god those comics yanked my heartstrings.
To end it, I kinda see what he’s getting at, but at the same time he’s missing the point. In this free market, we’re able to choose what we want, that goes for distributors & consumers. It’s not like we’re being forced to read the new comics. If this guy doesn’t want to buy comics that promote or shine the light on something occurring in real life, fine. He doesn’t have to buy those variant covers if he doesn’t want to. He’ll loose some financial gain, people will not like his choice, but it’s his decision as a comic shop owner. If a guy wants to buy that comic with The Penguin dressed up as Donald Trump, they should be able to. At the same time, I’m sick of everyone trying to add in their politics into everything (I know, hipocracy here. BlackTime E-Press does not represent the views & bullshit made by the owner who writes ’Blogbabble’) . We should get back to writing fun comics as well as writing something satirical & thought provoking. Let the artists do what they’re good at, I’m sick of editorial mandates telling artists to write shit they believe will sell. I’m 50/50 with Phil Boyle, unlike that one cop years ago that went into a hissy fit when he heard that Superman was going to go punch a cop during a ‘Black Lives Matter’ protest. That happened & he pretty much said (Paraphrasing here) “Comics should go back to being funny like Daffy Duck.”
This is mostly targeted towards the older folks who grew up with Little Lulu & Archie comics here: They’re capable of being mature, get over it! Don’t get me started with that one bitch whore who protested a college English class because she could not get over the fact that she had to read a mature comic for a grade. That happened.
And last, but not least…
EYYY, TACO TACO BURRITO TACO!
There’s a reasonable reason why I wrote the headline the way it is. ‘Sigh’, George Lopez is back in the news today, again. This time it’s because he tore into a black audience member with a joke. What did he say? We got viddeeoooooo!!!
The only one who does it perfectly is Gabriel Iglesias. Yeah, he make jokes latinos will only get but also he kinda guides the audience who isn‘t really that informed & it doesn‘t kill the pacing. Not only that but he also makes those hilarious voices that instantaneously make me laugh. Then you get Paul Rodriguez, he’s a freaking legend & does well with pacing, especially in that last stand up I saw where he talked seriously about his life with some humor woven into it.
My problem with George Lopez is every time I hear one of his standup comedy specials it’s always “I hate this, I hate that. Taco taco, burrito, taco!!!! Wapahhhh!!!! TEAM LEADER!!!!!” bullcrap that he‘s repeated way too many times. It’s all the same shit! How many times do I have to hear another bitch fest about how his mother promised him a trip to Disneyland, only to find out he was taken to a cheap fair in the ghetto. As someone who’s been lied like that as a kid by his parents, I’ll tell you when you get older that shit doesn’t matter anymore. So what if my parents lied to me that I was going to Disneyland, here I am now. I doubt my life would be any more different if they did take up their promise. Grow the fuck up, you’re a millionaire George! Go on your own time with your own money & shove it in your moms’ face if you’re still that butt hurt about bullshit that happened several decades ago. Sheesh!
Back to the topic at hand here, so George Lopez made that remark, a black woman got outraged & Lopez activated his ‘Heckler Defense Mode’ and just straight up called her a bitch. As I said earlier, I put ‘joke’ in parentheses because it sounded less like a joke & more like my parents. Oh yeah, I’ll spill the beans on that one. Whenever people mention the ‘Racist Uncle’ to me, I pretty much say “Dude, my parents are the racist uncles.” It sounds like the typical bullshit Gen X’er & baby boomer bullshitery (If that’s a word). I’m surprised at the number of people defending George with a very apt reason. When it comes to what’s racist & what’s not in standup comedy, almost the majority’s views are all out of whack. Why is it that revered Stand up comedy shows & comedians are able to say whatever the fuck they want & get the laughs, but when someone says something along those lines, it’s immediately deemed ‘Offensive’ & they‘re all over the news. It’s twisted when the same people who laugh at someone like Paul Mooney get all up in arms when someone like Johnny Sanchez tells. With Paul Mooney, his stand up albums are known to be politically & racially charged, he makes Mexican jokes & the like. Mexican makes a joke, it’s all a fucking attack on a race. Comedy could be safe, but it can also be an all out free for all where no one is safe & that should be clear before some idiot decides to attend a Chris Rock show expecting Christian Rock.
To end this: attack humor is funny, people need to calm the fuck down & George Lopez can’t tell a fucking joke to save himself or his wife from rapist robbers. I’m pro attack humor, but man, George Lopez fucking sucks, can’t stress that enough.
Also, I’m sick & tired of this whole ‘Brown VS Black’ bullshit that has been plaguing LA for a looong asss time. We’ve all seen ‘Blood in, Blood Out’ & this whole gang version of what they consider racial pride is bullshit. We gotta stop killing each other off for colors, whether it be wearing specific colors or being specific colors. Doesn’t matter if we’re red, blue, green, purple or magenta here, we’re all being oppressed & we gotta be unified. No lie, I’ve had it out for green ladies since She-Hulk & Star Trek. Interspecies for all!!!!! (Except animals)
“We need to be peaceful, so we’re gonna kill other people because they aren’t the color of our skin, all in the name of PEAS!!!”
That shit is bullshit, gang pride is the reason why race relations are fucked up in this country, that & the government. Can’t we all just get along? Doesn’t matter what race we are, we’re all terrible people. If you want to watch George Lopez being genuinely funny, it‘s on Nick At Night. Especially Season.1 where Sandra Bullock plays a cute nerdy, but accident prone, woman which I must commend her for. Everytime she appeared in entertainment news she’d always be wearing some designer dress & acting elegant. To see her play against type was awesome, I commend her for that. Then as the series went on long, it kinda lost its edge, but the series had an ending, something TV shows lack today.
So what did we learn this installment?
-We’re repeating history, we better not bring back Salem witch trials. Then again, we’re living in that time when Satanism & witchcraft are that cool trend. Bubblegum Goths!!! They’re not really deep into it because they just use it to look cool & have an excuse to wear black. I call them Studio Witches.
-You got entertainment in my politics/ you got politics in my entertainment.
And finally, George Lopez sucks.
That is all folks! If I can get my shit together, next installment I will try to end the rest of the 2017 movie list. There’s just sooo much out there. Then after that, I got no clue (Maybe I’ll actually get around to posting an episode of ’Adventures in Pancakes’ but I’ll tell you come April 1st, I will get into another one of my True Hollywood Stories. Expect that in the coming weeks!
