    S22.E06: The Girl Who Gets Possessed

    It's like the TV equivalent of comfort food. Creative was so sloppy this week. It might have been a cool concept but for all the caked flour makeup and exposed harnasses. The shots chosen were just ridiculous. Bello's ass-to-camera shot was worst. I hope he goes soon. I still like Nyle, Justin, Lacey, and Auntie Mame, though the latter is totally guilty of starting house drama. Too bad any model who appears on ANTM is automatically tainted in the industry.

    Season Three Discussion

    Really late to this party but just finished binge-watching all three seasons-- loved it. The humor is the main attraction for me-- hilarious writing. There was an article in Slate a while back where an ex-con criticized the show as "unrealistic" one of the complaints being that the characters were all "horrible people," and "dehumanizing." I disagree though-- the charm of these zany characters is that almost none of them are completely good or completely evil, in other words, thoroughly human. General thoughts on Season 3 Love the Time Hump story arc--- it cracks me up the way it reminds me of people talking about the latest episode of Game of Thrones. Really like the Tucky and Boo friendship-- two characters that I loathed at the beginning are now two of my faves Sick of the Daya's baby storyline, but I guess that isn't getting resolved any time soon. I hope they kill off Alex-- never liked her. Fast forward any time I see her.

    Live! Feed Discussion (S17): Watch People Sleep All Day!

    Wow. Way to objectify women, guys. It's like they are talking about cuts of meat. Disgusting.

    The Duggars: In the Media and TLC

    Nice to see someone willing to speak the truth, instead of just spouting party talking points. Palin, take note: Greg Gutfeld
  6. No words. These two have sold their souls.

    Gimme That Old Time Religion

    Westboro Baptist Church? Clansmen claiming that a burning cross symbolizes the light of Christ?

    Gimme That Old Time Religion

    Sorry if this post is OT, but I had to get it off my chest. I hate Got-hard so much. I feel like he built a "religion" around his own sexual fetishes-- like at some point in his life he was rejected by a woman with long wavy tresses, a jean skirt, and sandals, and his goal became to reproduce this type of woman in every one of his female followers . Add to this his weird bondage fantasies of this woman NOT ever being able to reject him but totally submissive, pliant, and gazing up at him in perpetual adoration, and all his bullshit injunctions about the female "countenance" really begin to make sense. He then covers this misogynistic mess with a dubious patina of scripture and voila--ATI is born! I don't think it's a coincidence that a lot of guys in this cult are Men's Rights advocates. For them Gothard must seem like a godsend-- a charismatic leader who has codified all their male fantasies into a pseudo-religious doctrine that masquerades as a path of virtue, rather then the enactment of a perversion. I mean, look at Blob-- the only way he could gain "mastery" over a bunch of women is to use Gothardite mental coercion...
  9. I wish Lisa Ling would interview them. No way she'd play softball.
  10. I can just see this bullshit going down in my mind's eye. Megyn Kelly asking questions like: "How has your faith helped you in your crisis?" "How has adversity brought you together?" "Do you feel attacked for being Christians?" "Do you think this is a backlash on conservative values?" "Tell me what you think about the power of forgiveness?" "Do you think the government is too quick to interfere in our personal lives?" "Do you think this is an attack on homeschooling by liberal elites?" "Do you think this media frenzy is the result of militant feminism?" Basically her questions will be cues for them to babble their Gothard script and spin this around to being part of the "war" on Christianity and conservatism. Michelle will do her best dry-eyed cry, as Jim Bob sits there with that vapid smile glued to his fat, red troglodyte face. The word "incest" will not be used, nor will Blob's death penalty for rape and incest campaign platform be mentioned. Oh and forget about her bringing up all those hypocritical statements about gays and trans-people being potential molesters. I'm also pretty certain that Matthew 10:22 will be quoted at some point. I know it's wrong of me, but how I wish the Lord would smite the three of them (Molester, Mullet, Blob) and Bill Gothard.

    The Duggars: In the Media and TLC

    Someone mentioned this before-- I would only watch a "breaking Duggars" type show about the older kids leaving Gothardism. I agree with everyone who said that Ben, Jessa, Jill, and Derrick are pretty boring all by themselves. A show on Jill and Jessa trying to navigate a brave new world and trying to get proper jobs and educations would be interesting to me though. I don't ever want to see the fat, smug faces of Blob, Mullet, and Josh again. Go. The Fuck. Away.

    Josh & Anna Smuggar: A Series of Unfortunate Events

    Re: Josh apologists citing the text: "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone..." Except that until they were exposed Blob, Mullet, and Josh had been casting stones at others all around them. If they had followed this Christian teaching to begin with, maybe the backlash wouldn't be this severe now. Man, sorry if I've said this a million times already, but I don't get why some Christians want to defend this guy. I get that they're defending the doctrine of forgiveness, but can't they defend that without being Josh apologists? I honestly don't know if he's been forgiven by God or his sisters-- it'snot for me to know, but I do know he evaded the earthly penalties for his crimes, and knowing what he had done, MADE A CAREER out of casting stones at other people who purportedly had the potential to be molesters, though they had done NOTHING. Where is the Christian outrage at the duplicity, and the grossly Pharasaical nature of this whole Duggar circus? They have been flouting Christian teaching left and right. I just don't understand it. (edited for clarity)

    Josh & Anna Smuggar: A Series of Unfortunate Events

    I'm actually hoping they'll get the money they earned from the show and their book to make a new start with. The older girls and the little ones are really what people tuned in to see not Blob and Mullet. I don't know if that tight-fisted bastard would give the kids their earnings without a lawsuit though.
