Good point, but yeah, I never remember to do the archive thing
I accidently found this article by typing "Billy Crystal sucks" because I think Billy Crystal is very unfunny, but came across an article where Billy Crystal said very mildly, he understands cancel culture, but doesn't like it, and comedy is a minefield, but he just keeps doing his thing.
An innocuous statement if ever there was one, and then the REEES to be had just vindicated what he said by shrieking about how wrong he is revealing their lack of self awareness.
Just view the hot takes in those tweets.
So, just for context, as I browsed through the comments, the man apparently does have 2 kids and doesn't want more, so got a vasectomy.
That's fine, it's a valid reason, but the cuckiness is still the celebration of it, the wife purchasing these off etsy and showcasing it to the world.
The world really shouldn't know you have a vasectomy...that's your business. and isn't some sort of virtue. Ever since Roe V. Wade got repealed, men getting vasectomies is seen as virtuous and things like this are popping up.
the 151k likes has got to be due to the Roe V Wade thing....If this was posted 2 years ago, I doubt it would have gotten the traction.
ah, gotcha, that sucks
huh, I have youtube vanced on android. You have to download it from the internet. It's not on google apps, but if you type youtube vanced into your android internet browser, there's a site where you download something called the vanced manager which allows you to download it.
I only got on the vanced train this past year, and I just got a new phone about 3 weeks ago, so the method worked both times for me.
It even restores youtube dislikes and skips things like self promotions and in video sponsor ads.
Speaking of woke 90s, Jurassic Park's feminism gets on my nerves. I didn't notice it as a kid obviously, but there's a scene where she's leaving to do something, and the old park owner guy tries to stop her because she's a woman, and she says something to the effect of "we can discuss sexism when I get back" or some bullcrap.
And then the line where I think Goldblum says something like "God creates man, man brings back the dinosaurs" (I know that quote isn't remotely close, it's been years since I've seen it) and Laura Dern says "Dinosaurs eat the men, and women inherit the earth".
Yeah the 90s had some PC crap sneaking in, but it hadn't infected a lot of people yet. JCVD 90s action movies and stuff, you won't find any political correctness, and most movies were pretty un-PC in general, (and video games hadn't even heard of political correctness at this point lol) but they were creeping in.
Shot on digital. A lot of movies are now, it's cheaper, but film looked way better.
The big high budget movies use a combination of better cameras and heavy post process color correction which is why despite being shot digitally, they don't look this terrible.
Look up what raw digital footage looks like. Unlike film which naturally has color, raw digital footage is like completely washed out, almost greyscale looking and needs to have color correction added in order for it to look like a real movie/look somewhat like film (though they never do look like film, which is why the cinematography on Quentin Tarantino movies looks so much better than your average cape bullcrap like Marvel....Because Tarantino still shoots on film)
So yeah, shot on digital, poor application of color (there's a way to do desaturated western look and look more authentic...this looks like an Iphone filter) and probably not the best cameras used.
As for the higher frame rate, I don't know why it looks like that. A lot of lower budget movies look higher fps for some reason and I can't begin to tell you why. Again probably has to do with cheaper digital cameras, but your guess is as good as mine.
Any other reason the terrible visual quality and production value is beyond my knowledge.
I'm not even 100% sure on how accurate the things I think I know about film and digital are, as I'm nowhere near an expert or understanding of all the technical stuff, but I have some knowledge from film production class in high school, editing videos here and there and seeing videos explaining the difference between digital and film on youtube, but I'm positive others could explain it better than I have.
Yeah I know haha!
Seen it, but my favorite of the trilogy is the first one, fistful of dollars
Very funny comment on video says "More like 'made for a dollar' based on the production quality"
Yes, I agree, I'd like to have more manufacturing here; but you know if it was reversed and China did all their offshore manufacturing here in America, the same leftists would go "China has a right to conduct business how they like, and America is being irresponsible with how green their manufacturing is. How can you blame China....we're the ones who are refusing to have green factories"
Even when it's China's fault, it's the Wests fault
Here's my problem with that line of thinking. If you teach that homosexuality is merely not in line with the biological purpose "that we evolved" to sexually have.
All the response will be is "So?" "I like it and it makes me happy, so who cares if I break with biology"
There are no consequences for defying biology on a grand scheme. There are for defying a just and perfect being.
Also keep in mind that science is only as good as there is truth in a society and science always follows the beliefs of the society.
In Nazi Germany scientists would tell you that Jews are inferior and here's why -insert their own skewed evidence-
Nowadays scientists without a hint of irony will tell you there is no male or female, and that men can get pregnant, because -insert their own skewed evidence-
Scientists will find the results they want according to their pre-supposed starting point.
If you yank out the rug of the higher truth and authority, then all other things that are meant to be objective, such as science (true good science as it's supposed to be) gets yanked away with it.
Yeah, I remember a comment saying in 10 years, the right will be "owning the libs" by arguing that their "transgenders" are "hotter" than the liberal ones.
This is why the real problem isn't conservative vs liberal. It's abandoning God...that's the root of our issues. Without God and His word as an authority, even conservatives, the young among them largely being nonbelievers, have no sound starting point for reason.
They may percieve that the left is jacked up and don't agree with it, but by not having a solid rock as a starting point, their "alternative" is always going to be skewed.
Unbelieving conservatives is like this. They see the liberals going east. They don't like liberals so they go west. When in reality the truth is neither east nor west, but is north, and you can only know that with the Bible, so the conservatives don't get any closer to the truth (true north) by simply going in a different direction than the liberals. It's the difference between following two different blind people in a pitch black labyrinth, vs following a guiding light through it.
I wrote this as a reply, but wanted to have it's own comment as well, so I'm reposting it.
Sex Education in all forms was always a satanic ploy. Somehow people reproduced for thousands of years despite no sexual education. How did they ever figure it out I wonder without government funded education?
And part of that satanic-ness that we're now seeing manifested is boiling sex down to only a scientific fact, rather than an act of love between a married man and a married woman.
If all sex is, as taught in schools since it was introduced, is the "scientific mechanisms" ie; this body part produces this function for this purpose, then sex can be divorced from all morality which is where we find it now. If you can teach that sex has nothing to do with God's design for a husband and wife, then you can teach and promote gay sex, or any number of things.
Sex is only something the parent should teach, and according to how God intended, at an appropriate age.
Strangers shouldn't have been allowed to do it.
A good rule of thumb should be, if you'd get arrested for talking about it to a random kid in a park, then the schools shouldn't teach it....parents should use discernment to determine how and what to teach on anything to do with morality.
Math isn't moral or immoral so schools can teach it, but sex cannot be divorced from morality without horrible consequences and thus it should not be taught.
That's what I'm saying.
It was always a satanic ploy. Somehow people reproduced for thousands of years despite no sexual education. How did they ever figure it out I wonder without government funded education?
No, it's just that our society wouldn't have the level of luxury as we've had.
African tribes provide for themselves. They have food, water, shelter. They're also uneducated.
I'll take a society like that over a marxist one, even though we'd be giving up on many luxuries.
People think humans are good. The truth is all people are sinful and evil and if it wasn't for certain restraints, we'd all be more evil than we realize. No one knows the true extent of the evil in their heart.
what is basic humanity from an atheistic point of view? All atheists believe in being some form of "moral", but can't justify it from an atheistic point of view. If all that exists is nature, and nothing supernatural, then the logical conclusion is might makes right, not that people would be decent and have "basic humanity".
I only say this because your statement should only be expected in a God believing, God following nation that views the Bible as authoritative.
When we abandoned God, I should only expect that people act as power hungry and evil, and that goes for men and women.
I agree and disagree.
Women getting the right to vote was a mistake. Used to be only if you owned land could you vote...then the vote was given to everyone. And the problem with women is they are feelers and think with their heart and the heart is notoriously bad at coming up with practical, reasonable solutions especially when it impacts people. Women are hearing one sob story about an immigrant, or a pregnant woman away from making a horrendous choice at the voting booth.
But Western men forgot the two sides to chivalry and take much of the blame. Men kept the "mah lady" "ask and you shall recieve my dear" aspect of chivalry but threw out the other less politically correct parts of chivalry such as men making the decisions and bearing responsibility, but also receiving respect.
You see, you need the un-PC version of Chivalry or else you're left with as the Bible told "women will desire to rule over men"
Old Chivalry was "I will lay down my coat for you my dear so that you do not muddy your shoes, but I expect you to act fair like a lady and respect me as a man"
Todays men thinking they're chivalrous aka "modern chivalry" is "I will lay down my coat for you my dear because you are a woman....that's it. Nothing is expected in return....you have a vagina therefore I will grovel while calling you brave.
Men took for granted the dynamics and just assumed women would always remain the fair, pleasant sex they had been for much of the time in the West.
So yes, Western women are awful now, but if Asian societies chose to do what the west has done, theyd likewise see similar things with their women, as would Muslim countries, as would any.
So western men were equally as foolish in their abandoning of the traditional, something the women opportunistically seized upon.
And as far as the black inner city community that's basically a separate issue. That's the breakdown of the family, as started by the democratic party with people like LBJ.
People from other countries coming in, such as muslims or mexicans, a lot of that is womens terrible voting decisions and the other part of that is corrupt politicians feeding this country to the wolves.
For instance, doesn't matter that many women voted for Joe Biden. Joe Biden still lost....but the party is so corrupt that it doesn't matter that he lost, they stole the election anyways and shut down the polls for an entire week to do so because he lost so bad. And then politicians like that, the establishment, open up the border because they want to destroy the country. Western women don't take the blame for what the Biden administration is doing with the border because if it wasn't for the corruption, Trump would be president regardless of how individual people voted, because Trump won by a lot as all evidence indicates.
The fact is we don't have one problem, or two problems, or three problems in the West. Our problems are legion and we are almost fully subverted as a nation, so there's really not much point in pointing a finger at any one type of person. We're all subverted to one degree or another. Just watch Yuri Besemov
One of the worst things people have been propogandized into thinking is that a kid needs to be educated, or even smart.
Many people when you say you should home school them because schools are now predatory and evil. They may agree that schools are predatory and evil, but still say "I don't have the time to homeschool" or "I couldn't do a better job"
First of all, yes....you would do a better job....as long as you don't force satanic agendas on your kids, congratulations, you're better than the school system today....go ahead and reward yourself teacher of the year because you probably deserve it more than the actual reciepients.
Now for those who say they have no time, well then fine....why does your kid need to be "educated"?
Isn't a dumb, ignorant, can't read or write, righteous child better than an "educated" evil propogandized one?
And also for how "smart" the brainwashed little Marxists are they're far dumber than anyone not propogandized. "Professing to be wise, they became fools"
The ignorant uneducated kid who is taught God's word may not be able to do calculus, but they'll be able to tell what a man and a woman is.
Skills, intelligence, worldly knowledge all have way too high of value placed on them. Why isnt wisdom valued more than intelligence? I'd rather be known as dumb than a fool and yet there's a lot of smart fools in the world.
Yeah. That wasn't Luke Skywalker. Disney doesn't get to retcon history. The character was already established and I don't care what propagandist ideologues have to say about his character in their half a billion dollar propaganda film.
I imagine a much better timeline for Star Wars.
First of all, the prequels never happened. Sorry, I appreciate the prequels more now because of how bad woke Disney wars is, but they're not good movies and they weren't the Star Wars I grew up with and loved as a child.
So here's my alternate history of Star Wars that I wish would have played out.
First 3 movies, except Return of the Jedi doesn't have Ewoks or at the very least they fix the ewoks and minimize them. They are a bit of a foreshadowing of the goofy tone that George consistently does when he is left to his own devices.
So Return of the Jedi is 83. I'd say then, in 86, they make a prequel, set between Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi....Shadows of the Empire. The shadows of the empire books and comics and game can come later, but 86 is a good time for the movie because the actors still look young enough. You get either Kurt Russell or Michael Bien to play Dash Rendar.
Then around 1995, you do the movie version of the heir to the empire trilogy of books. That's the true sequel trilogy and that's what should have been adapted. (note I don't know when those books came out....this isn't meant to be a totally accurate to the actual timeline of things, but just a general idea of what movies should have been made and when.)
Nothing from the great expanded universe gets declared "non canon" by executives who don't care about star wars (btw, the expanded universe is canon....some studio execs don't get to tell fans that their vision is correct and all the talented artists who contributed to the rich world before them are incorrect...as far as I'm concerned everything after George sold the rights is non-canon), so whenever you have games and stuff moving forward, it can draw from all the rich expanded universe content. Needless to say Lucas never sells to Disney however he should always be tempered by people who are better at writing dialogue and solid directors like Lawrence Kasden or whatever that guys name is. George is a great big ideas guy, but he's not good at writing natural feeling characters. Star Wars original trilogy got lucky because of many rewrites from other script writers as well as the natural charisma of the cast.
So yeah, that's my alternate history of Star Wars.
Original Trilogy (that never gets tarnished with retarded changes), one prequel (shadows of the empire) made about 3 years after return of the jedi set between ESB and ROTJ, then in the mid to late 90s, get the cast to return to film the true sequel trilogy, that being the heir to the empire trilogy.
Then from there, I think a good strategy besides all the expanded universe games, books, etc. is you can always do animated movies with the cast. I mean they can be 50 years old and voice an animated star wars movie set immediately after return of the Jedi because you can animate a character to look any age.
I mean this is all just saying if I had a time machine, and could call the shots on how Star Wars would play out post 1983, that would be how I'd do it. Oh well.
This isn't heaven, and God reminds us of this by bringing to our attention disappointments in this world and how it falls short of what we desire. I know that may seem a weird thing to say after all the star wars talk, but it's just something I think about because it appears to me anyways that God often brings to attention how much this world falls short so that we long for the next one rather than be too attached to this one.
As someone who loves watching speedruns, I got the reference and I appreciate it
