  • Blazing Saddles at 50: the button-pushing spoof that could never get made today.

    The Guardian ^ | 2.07.2024 | Scott Tobias
    Though it rarely gets mentioned in the same breath as The Wild Bunch, McCabe and Mrs Miller and the wave of revisionist westerns that came out of Hollywood in the late 60s and early 70s, Mel Brooks’s Blazing Saddles doesn’t need any artfully hazy Vilmos Zsigmond cinematography to upend Old West mythology. True, it is a comedy where a horse gets cold-cocked, a Native American chief (one of three characters played by Brooks) speaks Yiddish and Count Basie’s orchestra makes an appearance on the plains. Yet from the opening sequence, where Chinese immigrants and recently freed Black slaves work under...
  • Racist TV ad ("What Does the Data Say?")

    02/07/2024 1:53:43 PM PST · by lonewacko_dot_com · 22 replies
    The commercial "What Does the Data Say?" from Monday dot com has three actors: - an older black male - a white female - a white male. If you've been watching TV ads over the last few years, can't you basically write the script? 999 chances out of 1000 you'd get it 100% correct. The older black male is the boss, the white female is a super-competent employee, and the white male is an incompetent doofus that the other two mock. No company would ever have the black male or the white female as the doofus: it's almost always a...

    Movieweb ^ | January 29, 2024 | Anthony Lund
    William Shatner playing the role of Michael Myers is not something you will find on the actor's resume, but in a way, the Star Trek legend has been playing the Haddonfield killer since his first appearance back in 1978’s Halloween. As everyone knows by now, the mask used by Michael in the franchise, which has become so synonymous with the character that it has never changed across many sequels and reboots, was originally just a regular Captain Kirk mask from a costume shop, but does the likeness to Shatner mean he is in line for any royalties from the horror...

    Former MSNBC host Tiffany Cross lost her network gig in 2022 — but during a recent podcast, she claimed that “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough played a role in her abrupt exit. During an episode of her newly-launched podcast — “Native Land Pod”, co-hosted by Angela Rye and Andrew Gillum — Cross referred to Scarborough as MSNBC’s “favorite white boy” and claimed that she was pushed out for not wanting to spend all her time covering former President Donald Trump. […] Cross went on to say that although she believed Scarborough had worked behind her back to submarine her at...

Ok, why did you choose this?” the reporter asked. “For so many reasons. For so many reasons,” she said. WATCH:

    When The X-Files debuted back in 1993, nobody has ever seen anything quite like it. Following FBI agents Fox Mulder (played by David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (played by Gillian Anderson), the show quickly became something of a pop culture sensation - popularizing the idea of government conspiracies and leading whole generations of people to declare "I want to believe". The original show ran until 2002 and spawned two feature films before returning for a brief (though much less successful) two-season stint from 2016-2018. Now, according to the show's original creator Chris Carter, Disney is working on a new X-Files...

    And Disney takes another blow on the chin, this time from South Carolina. According to Moneywise, South Carolina State Treasurer Curtis Loftis has divested the state's money from Disney over the corporation not doing its fiduciary responsibility. Loftis blamed a "structural rot" within the company that he doesn't see it getting away from: “I think it's clear to anybody paying attention that there's a structural rot inside of Disney. It's deep, it’s pervasive, and I suspect Bob Iger, since his return as the CEO, now realizes it can't be fixed,” he told Fox Business Digital, adding that it “does not...

    Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD) expressed anger that his former aide Aidan Maese-Czeropski was caught video-taping a gay porn scene in a Senate Hearing Room. "I'm not opposed to gay sex, per se, but it was inconsiderate of him to embarass me by using his access to Senate facilities for his own entertainment," Cardin complained. Maese-Czeropski maintains that "the setting for the video was integral to the artistic message of the movie--namely that the voters and taxpayers are being raped by the people they elect to represent them in Congress."
