The Cringe-Worthy ‘Ghost in the Shell’ PSA

What do you get when you combine an unfunny Asian lesbian and a “PSA” about Ghost in the Shell?  You get a video where I felt the cringe bars going up.  I’ve heard before about how casting Scarlet Johansson as the main character in the Ghost in the Shell live-action film is “white-washing.”  I don’t see it that way.  I see the film as yet-another lackluster live-action adaptation of an anime that will join the pantheon of lack-luster adaptations.  But that’s neither here nor there.  An unfunny Asian lesbian decided to try her hand at a public service announcement about it.  Let’s take a look at this.

We start off the video having some little Asian girl looking into a comic book shop.  She goes inside and we see a ton of other little girls in there.  Yeah, this is about as realistic as the “acting” in Cool Cat Saves the Kids.  We have a term for some of the caseworkers at my job – unicorns.  Magical creatures that you hear about but never see.  That’s what the sight of a bunch of little girls at a comic book shop is.  It’s a magical creature that you hear about but never see.  Not to mention the fact that they clearly aren’t actually looking at the comic books.  They are just jiggling them around.

Then we get to see how all these characters in these comics are…WHITE PEOPLE!  Oh!  The horror!  White people in comics!  How awful!  Our little Asian girl desperately looks around for the comic book that has an Asian person in it.  Because, you know, kids only like characters who they can racially identify with.  That isn’t at all a stereotype that has been invented by idiots who don’t know the first thing about real children.  After all, this PSA has an ax to grind.  Never mind the idea that an Asian girl could relate to a white character.  Nope, if it’s someone of a different skin color, then that little girl can’t possibly relate to them.  Man, this video is racist.

It just keeps going.  This endless montage of this little Asian girl who has no interest in any of these comics purely by virtue of the characters not having the same skin color as them.  This character and this video by extension are so fucking racist.  I mean, are we really supposed to just ignore the message of this video – Asian children can’t relate to white people.  That’s what that entire montage was about.  Finally, we see her reach the Ghost in the Shell manga.  The kid opens it up to some random page and is so completely happy by seeing someone who shares the same skin color as her.  Racism.  Apparently it’s in right now.  The kid buys the manga and all is right with the little girl’s world.

Fast-forward to years later and we see some hipster Asian girl wandering the streets looking at random shit.  She comes to a poster for the new movie, and we see it cut back to the little girl we saw that beginning.  I guess the hipster is the older version of that girl.  It cuts between her and the little girl version, and she looks totally heart-broken.  Again, the implication being that because the character is now white, she is instantly bad.

This video’s idea of equality is that only people who share the same skin color can understand each other.  Our shared humanity?  Nope.  Our ability to empathize and understand one-another by shared life experience?  Fuck that!  In this woman’s eyes, the only thing that matters is the color of your skin.  Racism.  It’s the in thing to be.  Because after all, if it’s white people, it’s evil.  And, of course, if it was the reverse of this people would be throwing a shit-fit.  Casual racism is fine, so long as it isn’t white people.  I fucking hate this shit.  This PSA’s ham-fisted message doesn’t land.  Nothing about this works.  And the video ends with an actual statement that movies aren’t real, but have some kind of nebulous effect on real people.  Give me a fucking break.  Where is the evidence for that?  Please, show me some fucking evidence.  Until then, shut the fuck up.

Disney is Making WAY Too Many Marvel Films

For anyone who isn’t following, Disney just did a massive dump of upcoming Marvel films that they are planning.  Some of them look amazing.  Some of them are intriguing.  Others have us wondering – who asked for this?  And it has got me and me thinking about something – this is getting to be a little much.  What’s more, I know why.  See, DC decided to do a dump of their future projects as well.  But Disney isn’t stupid.  They know that they have the upper hand in all this, so they decided to put ALL their cards on the table.  Here’s a list of what’s coming, in case you didn’t know.

Avengers: Age of Ultron (we all already knew about that one)
Ant-Man (seriously?)
Captain America: Civil War (this is only one movie?  I remember this plot being longer)
Doctor Strange (I’ll admit, I am stoked for this one)
Thor: Ragnarok (couldn’t care less)
Black Panther (How is this guy getting his own movie?  He wasn’t that dynamic of a comic book character)
Captain Marvel (barely know who that is)
Inhumans (don’t know who that is)
Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (looking forward to this)
Avengers: Infinity War Part 1
Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 (why is the Civil War only getting one movie?!)

Meanwhile, Twentieth Century Fox has announced a reboot of the Fantastic Four movies, which I couldn’t care less about, and Sony has announced The Amazing Spider-Man 3, with two spin-off films planned – Venom, The Sinister Six.  Oh, right, and there is X-Men: Apocalypse, which I admit to being intrigued by.  And a Deadpool film, that they have decided to make PG-13 and family friendly.  Fuckers.

That’s a lot of movies, and all of these are slated to come out before 2020.  Now, when you add all the Marvel movies that have come out since 2010, this cinematic universe is getting pretty fucking big.  I mean, big to the point that it is unmanageable.  We are being drowned in these things!  And if you don’t watch one of them, like I mean to not watch another Thor movie, or Ant-Man, then you risk being lost, because you won’t know how that ties in to the universe at large.  What’s more, it’s getting WAY too many characters to keep track of.  That’s a problem that this universe and actual comics have in common.  Go figure.  I mean, if you look at the next Avengers film, they have such a large cast that it’s almost like Ultron is going to be played down in his own movie.  Which would be a crying shame, since they have one of my favorite actors doing the voice – James Spader.

For some people, all these comic book movies are just tops.  They say, “fuck yeah!  Bring me even more!”  Guess what, those are the super-nerds who have comics all over their room.  For the average filmgoer, who likes some of these buy doesn’t care about others, this is getting to be a little much, don’t ya think?  Playing to comic book nerds isn’t as big a market as Disney thinks.  I didn’t even talk about the TV shows that are also coming, based in the same universe.

Anyone who has taken a marketing class knows of a concept that can really drag one’s business down.  It’s called “market saturation.”  That’s when you have so much of something that it becomes so plentiful that the demand no longer exists.  What we’re looking at here is a classic example.  They are drowning this market in Marvel movies.  Why?  Because it’s popular!  But here’s the problem – this is a fad.  For comic book lovers, I may have just spoke heresy, but the truth is that the love of these movies is a fad.  It’s big now, but after a time, it’ll just fade away.  So few people will remember more than half of these movies, once it’s done.  And over-saturating the market is the biggest step to getting us there.

I like Marvel.  For real, I do.  Marvel has some of the coolest heroes.  A neat point of irony – DC has the best villains.  How’s that for irony?  But the truth is that this can’t last forever.  Eventually, people will move on.  But, just like everything that Disney gets their claws into, they will make sure to bleed EVERY single dime they can out of this brand before it does.  Personally, I have a gut feeling that they have even timed this out.  They know that by the time the Infinity War plays out, this market will have played out.  And they will have moved on to Star Wars.  That’s how Disney does.  They are REALLY fucking evil.

Disagree if you will, but you gotta admit, I have a point.

Ray Comfort’s Comics – Comedic Gold

Alright, everyone, are you ready to have some fun?  Let’s look at Ray Comfort’s comic series “The Primates.”  These comics are about two atheists, whose relationship is never explained, and their thoughts about the world.  And naturally, Ray Comfort (who you may remember from that awe-inspiringly stupid banana video and his subsequent videos with his gay lover, Kirk Cameron) believes that these comics are sure to prove all us atheists are just a bunch of idiots.  They are…awesome.  I mean it, this is something that inspires awe and wonder.  I am in awe of how stupid this man thinks that atheists are.  So, do you wanna have some fun with me?  Let’s rip this stupid shit apart!

Ray Comfort Stupid Comic 1Okay, what is up with this Christian view of having to see something to believe it?  What Christian has been able to see, in real-time, God?  For real, this whole idea that these things that we can’t see disprove the idea that God isn’t real is ridiculous.  But looking at it another way – we can see easily perceive these things.  Love is a chemical reaction in the brain.  We can perceive the changes in our body that results from the chemical process in the brain that affect our emotions.  We can also feel our heart-beat accelerated if we are having a passionate moment with the person we love.  And I defy you to find the person who isn’t aware of those chemical processes during sex.

Next, there is wind.  We can see wind interacting with the world around us.  We can feel it on our skin.  We can measure its intensity.  Electricity?  We can easily see that.  When it is strong enough, we can see it with our own two eyes, like with lightning.  We can feel the effects of gravity.  We can measure the strength of it in a given area.  You can see the images sent via TV waves and hear radio waves.  As for history, this argument doesn’t make sense, even in the context of this argument.  I mean, the other things are simple things.  But history is a vast concept about the passage of time and the changes it brings.  And we have documentation about it.  We have our history documented, sometimes better than others, but we still know a lot about it.  What documentation has there been about this Gawd character?  Oh, right, people “have experiences” and “visions.”  Hearsay and confirmation bias at best.  Straight-up bullshit at worst.

Ray Comfort Stupid Comic 2Okay, what atheist has said that they know what happens after death with utter certainty.  And if they did, they’re an idiot.  We admit that we don’t know what happens after we die, but here’s the thing – neither do you!  Don’t pull that “the Bibles says!” bullshit with me.  That is just rehashing what you read in a book.  There was this great quote by a favorite villain of mine, Warren Vidic, about what one reads in a book.

Anyone can write a book.  And they can put whatever they want onto its pages.  Used to be we thought the world was flat.  Or that the moon landing was a hoax.  I believe there’s also a book, claims the world was created in seven days.  Best-seller too.

This idea that the Christians somehow have this intel about death that the rest of us don’t is just fucking stupid!  I also loves how he naturally assumes that the atheists are just so self-righteous as to believe that we know everything.  I make the contention that it is the Christians who are the self-righteous ones.  We atheists have enough humility to admit when we don’t have all the answers and are willing to have our assumptions put to the test.  You Christians, on the other hand, won’t even let another idea sit in your mind.  You just have the “out of sight, out of mind” approach to when contradictory information is made known to you.  Again, confirmation bias.

Ray Comfort Stupid Comic 4Uh…I’m confused.  From what I am seeing here, it sounds like Comfort is making the argument that if there is a God, he is evil.  For real, think about it – they talk about the story of Noah’s Ark and how Gawd flooded the world, killing everyone.  They say that that is an evil thing to do (which it is) and that he is evil for doing it.  But, if he doesn’t exist, that knowledge is immaterial.  I would think that Comfort was making a clever joke about this, but that would be giving his intelligence WAY too much credit.  For real, if one of you could give me some clarity on this, I would be much-appreciative.  Because from where I’m sitting, it looks like he is making an argument in favor of the atheist position.  Just saying.

Ray Comfort Stupid Comic 5Wow.  Talk about misrepresenting the other side in an argument.  I mean, for real, an “atheist” believes that God made everything.  So, he comes to the position that Hell must be real too.  Naturally, the other guy is all like, “oh, snap, don’t think!  You’ve come to the conclusion we don’t like!”  That’s just…bullshit.  For one thing, the point of our position is that thinking is good.  We question everything.  But a point that most of us have arrived to is that even if a deist God exists, it is NOT the god of the Bible.  That is almost certain.  With all the years of human history, all the religions that have come and gone, all the different denominations of Christianity, each with the view that THEIR way is the right way, it is just kind of nuts that we actually buy into this belief that your religion is less bullshit than the others.

The thing that bugs me more – the comic acts like it is just common-sense that God is real, and it is the one that you worship.  For real, that’s dumb.  That’s really fucking dumb.  And I don’t buy it.  Nobody should buy it.  Obviously, though, people who are actually on my side of the fence think that it is bullshit.  If this guy in the comic were questioning, that would be one thing, but it frames this like we atheists are just so fucking stupid that we don’t know something that everyone should know.

Ray Comfort Stupid Comic 6Okay, is the atheist in this comic holding a joint?  Is the idea that all atheists are pot-smokers?  Again, working so hard to misrepresent his audience.  For real, this is a blatant, “look what those stupid atheists do!” argument.  But I’m used to Comfort not knowing his target audience.  Sure, a fair number of us do, but I can think of a fuck-ton of Christians who light up, thinking that being high gets them closer to God.  Fucking genius.

But to the comic itself, this idea that before we evolved, we couldn’t think – yes we could!  When we were a less evolved creature, we didn’t think as complex as we do now, but we were thinking.  The further back you go on the evolutionary tree, the less complicated the thoughts get, but there was thinking.  I just love how the idea here is that it is because of God that thought happens.  We know for a fact that cats and dogs think and have emotional processing much like we do.  In fact, the most intelligent animals solve complex problems and have small societies, like dolphins and apes.  So yeah, this comic completely misses the point of the atheist argument.

Ray Comfort Stupid Comic 3To finish up, the piece de resistance of stupidity.  Yes, because we atheists think that we are related to every single thing in the world.  We’re related to rocks and plants and flat-screen TVs.  Right.  Uh, how about this – get a fucking clue, Comfort!  There isn’t an atheist one who believes this!  Not one!  I mean, sure, one could say that we share the same atoms as most things on the planet.  That’s true.  Almost all life on this planet is carbon-based.  So there are those relations.  We also share a genetic ancestor with all life on this planet, if you go back far enough.

And naturally, it finishes by saying that all of us Atheists are just so fucking stupid.  Right.  Uh, yeah, Comfort, can you please, if it is at all possible try and actually learn about what you attack?  When you see stuff like this, it leads me to be with TJ in believing that Comfort is as much of an atheist as me.  His arguments are dumb and he clearly is doing this to hit the dumbass Christian buttons.  This is made to get all of his idiot followers to go “yeah, you tell them stupid atheists!” (insert southern accent for quotation) They aren’t smart enough to actually question this.  His audience is the same kind of people who dig Benny Hinn and listen to TV preachers and give them all the money they can.

I hope you have enjoyed this, and remember – Ray Comfort doesn’t buy it.  He doesn’t believe a fucking word he spews.  He does this to make money.  His followers are dumb, so they give it up, and he is a charlatan who will rob them blind without a second thought.  Just like all the mega-church preachers and probably everyone in power at the Vatican and the Mormon church.  Way I figure it, these people have too much money to believe this shit.  Religion has always been for the gullible, to be used by the powerful

Until next time, a quote,

“And you know what this does?  It proves that Ray Cumfart is full of shit.  Because we’re expected to believe that this guy can put together a sophisticated social media campaign for his movie, that he can attract and manage a large audience of people who are dedicated to what he has to say?  That he can put all that together, but he can’t recognize the fallacy of this fucking comic, that literally any fucking ten year old with a ten-year-old’s grasp of the concept of evolution should be able to refute?  Handily, with no problem whatsoever?  Do you really believe that?  Because I fucking don’t!  I think that Ray Cumfart is every bit the atheist that I am.”  -TJ Kirk, Stupid Christian Comics

Women are Being Sexually Objectified in Comics?! Actually, no…

I have recently been reading a lot of posts on Tumblr, Reddit and other places about comic books.  Now, this isn’t new.  Talking about comics has been an American past-time for a long time.  Of course, this is a niche market, given how small the group of people who actually read comics is, but since comic books are popular in films, and characters in comics are popular in mainstream culture, it is still a common topic of conversation.  And of course, where there is topic about something that involves women who are sexy and kicking ass, the feminist community has a problem.  Or rather, the Tumblr feminist community has a problem.

See, there is a comic series called “The Hawkeye Initiative,” which has been created as a backlash against what they believe to be the objectification of women in comics, by sexualizing men.  This is so annoying, to me, because to be honest, I don’t think that the women who saying that these women are being “objectified” have even the slightest inkling what objectification even is.

Here’s a great example – Megan Fox’s “character” (of which she had none) in the Transformers movies.  What were her traits?  Do the Red Letter Media challenge with her.  Don’t know what that is?  It’s a simple way to determine if a character is a good character or a bad character in film, specifically, but it can be applied anywhere.  It goes as follows – describe a character in something, but don’t include what they look like, what they do (their job or whatever), or what their role in the film is.  Can you do it?  For real, look at Megan Fox’s character in those movies, and describe for me what she’s like.  You can’t, can you?  Of course not.  And that is because Megan Fox was objectified in those movies.  Objectifying women is when you put a woman in something, give her absolutely zero personality, and they just exist in the film or book or whatever to be hot.

Sexy, but I guarantee you that she was developed and given character.

Sexy, but I guarantee you that she was developed and given character.

Now, with that in mind, let’s take a long and hard look at some of the women from comic books, and comic book films.  All of these women are very attractive.  I’m using that to prove my point.  First, there’s Wonder Woman.  She would probably BE one of these Tumblr feminists, were it not for the fact that she is kicking men’s asses all over town all the time.  Then there is Lois Lane.  She’s an ambitious (a bit too much for her own good sometimes), dedicated and resourceful reporter, and even though she has to be saved a LOT, one could make a compelling argument that that is because she is a little too ambitious for her own good, and gets in over her head.  But that’s neither here nor there.  Looking at comic books films, how about Gwen Stacey, from The Amazing Spider-Man?  She is smart, talented, and doesn’t always do what she’s told.  She totally ignores Parker when he tells her to get out of the building, and tries to stop the Lizard’s plan on her own.  She even lights that fucker on fire!  That’s awesome!  Or how about Black Widow, from the Avengers movie.  They took a character who was never too exceedingly complicated, and gave her a back-story, and actually a lot of complexity.  It was surprising.

This isn’t to say that women aren’t very sexy in comics.  Of course they are.  And there is a reason for that – because that is what their audience wants.  Who is the primary audience for comics?  Teenage boys and young men.  And what do they like – sexy girls.  Is that a bad thing?  Is it really wrong for males to want females?

Part of what bugs me about this whole debate is that the women expect these guys to make their attractions malleable.  They think that if they demand it loud enough, guys can suddenly not be attracted to what they are attracted to.  See, some guys like women with big boobs.  Some guys like women with a big ass.  Some guys like neither of these.  I put it to you – what the fuck is wrong with that?!  What is wrong with guys being attracted to certain features?  I mean, honestly, ladies, you cannot claim that you are so much better.

I can think of a billion Shoujo comics that I have seen that depict these Bieber-esque, lean, feminized, pseudo-males who have not one manly feature about them, but are something that women can get their pussies wet to.  For real, there is an entire breed of comic that is made to get women wet.  And it works.  They wouldn’t sell if there wasn’t a market.  Do I hate these comics?  Oh yeah!  Do I complain that they distort the image of men, and make guys like me who aren’t that kind of guy feel inadequate?  Fuck no!  I don’t care, because the reality is that what you are attracted isn’t something you can change.  And the feminists who are yelling at comics can’t seem to get that through their heads.

Also, a point that was raised to me is this – if you think that human sexuality is so malleable, then you are basically admitting that you think that homosexuality is a choice, and it can be changed with therapy.

In summary, this argument is dumb.  The fact that I am having to go on a tirade about it, when I wanted to talk instead about some Christmas silliness, like how I never really did believe in Santa, is just annoying.  I wanted to talk about that.  I probably will talk about that.  But this argument is dumb, tired, and I am sick of it.  Finding something sexy isn’t bad.  Women do it just as much as men.  And don’t you DARE tell me otherwise!  How many of you swooned when you saw Daniel Craig’s hot body in the new Bond films?  How many of you want to have hot sex with Jacob, from those intellectually-void Twilight films?  If we are going to argue about something being objectified, purely because it is hot and kicks ass, then the men in 300 were objectified as fuck!  But the Tumblr feminists won’t accept that.

That’s really good logic.  Like a lot of Christians, something they’re uncomfortable with.

Frank Miller and the Epic FAIL

This is something that is circulating around a lot of the comic-book and cinema tables right now.  Frank Miller, who has been responsible for some great comics that have been turned into some really badass movies, like 300, Sin City, Watchmen, and many others, has had a statement go out on his blog about the Occupy Wall Street movement, along with all the other Occupy movements that have gone on around the country.  In keeping with my usual style of doing things, I intend to put up quotes from the man himself, then pwn them into oblivion.  Here goes nothing.

The “Occupy”movement, whether displaying itself on Wall Street or in the streets of Oakland (which has, with unspeakable cowardice, embraced it) is anything but an exercise of our blessed First Amendment.

Yes, because the First Amendment doesn’t say anything about people gathering to address their grievances to the government, except for –

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Gee, if somebody smarter than me were to look at that, they might just think that this said that you are full of shit.  But yeah, I’m right there with you, Frank.  Dumbass.

“Occupy” is nothing but a pack of louts, thieves, and rapists, an unruly mob, fed by Woodstock-era nostalgia and putrid false righteousness. These clowns can do nothing but harm America.

You know, Frank, I could have sworn that the Occupy movement is trying to protest a group of thieves who have destroyed our economy once, and are destroying it anew.  Plus, where the hell did this “rapist” accusation come from?  Really, where is your evidence that these people are rapists?  I’m actually hoping you respond and give me some proof as to all the rapings that are going on.  And if you want to say that somebody is doing nothing but harming America, why don’t you turn some of that self-righteous indignation against the banking industry that ran our country into ruin, or the government cowards who are in their pockets, instead of defending the establishment, you hopeless hack!

 “Occupy” is nothing short of a clumsy, poorly-expressed attempt at anarchy, to the extent that the “movement” – HAH!

Anarchy?  Really?!  These people are protesting for more regulation, much more, and they are somehow anarchists now?  If you could have me flow through your logic on this one, I would be really happy.  Because at face value, this is really fucking stupid.  A person who is an anarchist doesn’t want regulation, they want chaos.  They want the system to collapse.  Apparently he didn’t hear the Joker’s speach in The Dark Knight.  But yeah, this is really stupid.  Of course, what follows immediately afterwards is just icing on the cake.

Some “movement”, except if the word “bowel” is attached – is anything more than an ugly fashion statement by a bunch of iPhone, iPad wielding spoiled brats who should stop getting in the way of working people and find jobs for themselves.

Wow!  This is kind of awesome!  This guy’s solution to the unemployment problem is – get a job!  Hey, Frank, what’s your solution to the food problem in Ethiopia?

Well, those people should just eat more! (he didn’t actually say that, I am just parodying)

Wow, Frank, that’s kind of heartless, and really stupid.  The unemployment problem is directly tied into our economic problems.  You are a gigantic stupid retard who can’t seem to understand the fundamentals of what is wrong with society right now.  Plus, you are starting to sound like a heartless lout yourself.

 Maybe, between bouts of self-pity and all the other tasty tidbits of narcissism you’ve been served up in your sheltered, comfy little worlds, you’ve heard terms like al-Qaeda and Islamicism.

Ah yes, it all comes back to this.  These terrorists who attacked us.  This pathetic fear-mongering that the Republicans have been doing, and still do, since 9/11.  This is just sad, Frank.  First off, all these fear-mongering is bullshit.  The time it took to plan 9/11 (unless you are one of those stupid 9/11 Truthers who should just shut the fuck up) was years.  It was over ten years in the making to get this all set up.  It took over 10 years to make one thing happen.  Granted, it was a huge thing, but this was just one thing.  It’s not like these guys are blowing shit up and destroying the world every day, Frank.  Apparently, your astute observation didn’t pick that up.

And another thing – stop villifying all of Islam!  I hate Islam.  I think it’s stupid, repugnant, violent, and loathesome, but guess what, I believe it has a right to exist in this world, just like any other idea, and I also know that while I take serious issue with the belief system, I know that there are plenty of people out there who are not all just looking to kill everybody.  They just want to live a normal life.  It’s people like Frank, the coward that he is, who are making this world a worse place, for everybody.

In the name of decency, go home to your parents, you losers. Go back to your mommas’ basements and play with your Lords Of Warcraft.  Or better yet, enlist for the real thing. Maybe our military could whip some of you into shape.  They might not let you babies keep your iPhones, though. Try to soldier on.

Fuck you, Frank, and all of your cowardly pathetic bullshit.  I kind of feel bad for liking Sin City still.  I have lot all respect for the creator, but I still enjoy the films.  Well, I enjoy some of his films.  The Spirit was a joke, and so was Sucker Punch.  But still, this is just sad.  It’s sad to watch somebody who had true greatness fall into the desolate wasteland of intellectual obscurity, right along with Ayn Rand and Ron Paul.

This man is a coward.  He chooses to ignore the real problems, and to lash out against something that he can wrap his tiny little brain around.  These are the kinds of people who just plain bug me.  My aunt’s new husband is just the same.  Don’t focus on the stuff that matters, instead, go off on the stupid bullshit problems that don’t actually matter.  Really, all conservatives are like this.  The fact that their base is too stupid to be able to see that they are all being used by the architects of the system that is screwing over so many people is one thing, but to say, “don’t focus on the important stuff, get all worked up over this menial bulllshit!” that just pisses me off.

This is a difficult time for us to live in, right now.  My generation is going to have to suffer for all the bad decisions that our cowardly government and our ruthless banking system make.  All of us are now the victims in the cesspool that is America’s economy, and here is a guy who was once regarded as a brilliant creator, turning into just another mouthpiece of a stupid, tired, disproven ideology that never meant anything to anybody anyway.  It was just another weapon of the system.

Go rot in obscurity, Frank.  You’ve lost whatever credibility you had left.

Until next time, a quote,

“What happened to be between being the guy who wrote The Dark Knight Returns and Sin City, and then being the guy who directed The Spirit, and then says shit like this.  What happened?!  Did you just run out of genius?  Were you born with a little genius bar, and when it ran out, you just refused to bow gracefully out and step away?  -TJ Kincaid, PWNED: Frank Miller
