Martian in the closet

It's a very cold day in hell when this blog will defend Matt Damon, but today is such a day. The latest queer temper tantrum and fall-out that Matt is having with the gender Guardians is too much for me to bear. I know, I know - let him suffer. If anyone deserves this twisted gay hate retribution it's Matt Damon who's heterodox Hollywood leftist pabulum has dripped unfiltered from his puffy lips for almost 20 years. It's just that I don't play it that way, with very few exceptions, and I'm certainly not going to play it that way with this player. First off, before I say anything else, I have to give credit to the man for an unbelievable work ethic - acting in 70+ films/TV shows, producing 20 films, writing 4 scripts and literally hundreds of appearances on mindless talk shows and other promotional crap over the course of 20 years is impressive. Say what you will about his Commie ideology but this guy is living the American Dream, raking in green-backs and working his ass off. Impossible for me to have seen all of this product, and many of the efforts leave me cold - the Clooney, Soderbergh Ocean's series was dumb, Bourne was OK the first time but THREE! (now FOUR!!!), and leftist propaganda like Che and Promised Land is just too heavy handed for my taste - but almost everything is well crafted entreatment. More importantly, some of these movies are gems and his participation probably played a big part in getting them made - to choose a few at random:

  • The Talented Mr. Ripley
  • EuroTrip
  • The Good Shepherd
  • We Bought a Zoo

With the exception of The Good Shepherd none of these are overtly political and TGS was quite complex in it's "message", such that it was. Honestly, the films greatest failing was Angelina Jolie as Matt's overwhelmed wife (bad casting), but I digress. The point is, I don't write off an actor, musician, playwright, mime or clown no matter what their personal or political views might be. I watch Woody Alan movies, listen to Streisand songs, read Stephen King stories because their damn good at what they do no matter how much stupid stuff they say when NOT doing what they do best. Matt Damon is no exception to this rule - though a full throated Knight of the Golden Circle - like Abe Lincoln, I look to the persons abilities and what they do well with the understanding that I must suffer what they do poorly as part of the bargain.

Homophobia in Action

And I include playing a horny, drug addicted, money grubbing, plastic faced ninny named  Scott Thorson in HBO's gay propaganda bio-epic on Liberace titled Behind the Candelabra (95% Critic approval on RotTom). I mean, what does a guy have to do in this world to prove he's pro-gay enough? Shouldn't having sex with Michael Douglas win an actor some props in the LGTBYOB community? Answer: No. But the worst part of the whole thing, in my opinion, is that Matt Damon is right! The less the audience knows about the actor, the more mystery that surrounds the thespians inner workings and personal beliefs the better it is for the dramatic presentation and the viewing audience. Once these actors die and the truth of their screwed up morality and mentality is revealed in biography and documentary exposé it tarnishes what should be experienced as a singular piece of art. Why ruin everything while you're still alive and able to keep your debauchery securely locked away in the closet making the world a better place and improving your performance.

Most recently Matt has been spending a lot of time in outer space - Elysium, Interstellar and The Martian - and who can blame him for wanting to get off this planet. Maybe on Mars he'll be able to say what he wants without being labeled a hater.

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work." I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months view

No Step On Snek

On The 2020 Election: In an elemental way We the People of the United States lost because Trump, and the MAGA movement he champions, forced the Deep State/Administrative State/New World Order (whatever you want to call it) and its enablers in Corporate America - Finance/FakeNews/Big Tech - to declare their sovereignty and steal our election in the most obvious way possible. The brazenness and " in yo face " shamelessness of the crime is a big part of its effectiveness and loudly proclaims an intent to demoralize and defeat the America First ideology which actually won the highest number of votes in this nation's history. It wasn't even close and that was made clear when key cities in 5 or 6 swing states declared they would pause (stop) counting(?!) votes until all the rural districts had submitted results allowing the big city machines to manufacture the ballots required to put Jo(((k)))e Biden in the lead. NPC's and Normies don't get too critical of process a

I've Got You Dumb Motherfuckers Eating Right Out Of My Hand

The branches of government In 2011 John Lasseter wrote an opinion piece for The Onion which exposed Pixar's production strategy and shocking success in the marketplace : "Yes, after the success of our first few movies we had a hunch you'd continue to enjoy the wonderfully designed animation and our smart, lyrical writing, but I didn't think we'd create a horde of drooling morons ready to drop everything just to watch a fucking rat cook dinner." This observation was in reference to a Pixar film titled "Ratatouille" about a rat who dreams of becoming a French chef which, to my lights, created one of the most unappetizing and subversive stories ever told. The idea of rats running roughshod in a Michelin-starred restaurant is bad enough but when the proposition that "Anyone can cook" is taken to its evil and impossible extreme I must object for France and humanity. Using that movie and others as an example Lasseter makes the point that his
