Smackdown (Anger)

Quick Half-time Note

OK, short note, here. I understand that in the over-done MTV half-time show, Justin Timberlake "accidently" tore off part of Janet Jackson's top, exposing her breast. CBS and the NFL are going on and on about how they were not aware this was going to happen, and that they are upset with MTV. MTV is saying that it was unrehearsed, unplanned, and regrettable. Basically, everyone's trying to claim this wasn't supposed to happen, blah, blah, blah, blah.

I can't decide which is the bigger show of stupidity, that these people think anyone would believe that crap, or that anyone actually DOES believe this crap.

Of course this was intentional. Janet's wearing over-done nipple jewelry, the part of her outfit that tore off was obviously meant to do so, Justin goes out of his way to grab it and pull, she looks AROUND in "surprise" before ever noticing her suddenly draughty tit, he doesn't look surprised at all, and all this happens right at the end of the line "get you naked by the end of this song".

Christ, man, look at the video of it for fuck's sake. You'd have to be a complete moronic assmonkey to believe that this wasn't planned.

One kudo in all this, though, goes out to Michael Powell, FCC chief, who was "outraged" and called it "a classless, crass and deplorable stunt" and who promised a "thorough and swift" investigation.

Have I mentioned lately that I hate it here?

Damn Awards Ceremonies

achmanage and I have decided that we need to have our own show. Just the two of us and a robot puppet, talking through the various awards shows, making our commentary and drowning out the various "you're the best!" speeches...call it "Mystery Science Award Ceremony".

Quote For Today

"It is hard to find one classic stellar name in the creative arts who was not, for a long time, either ignored by or attacked violently by the established authorities. So my point is, why care at all what they say? They obviously don't have the first clue."

Bow Chika Wow-Wow

OK, I admit, I'm loving listening to FluffertraX, which is streaming porn music.

Yes, you heard me correctly.

Man, this is funny shit...at the moment, it's running Prince's "Pussy Control".
