If you have to identify yourself as a “Christian Comedian” that 100% means you couldn’t cut it as a regular comedian and probably suck at life, like how the dude from Switchfoot converted the band to Christian rock and then tried to hire someone to kill his wife.

Imagine this thread getting derailed for 4 pages about West being a genius/mentally ill, with no final consensus. Now we don't have to do it for real!

And yeah, Christian Comic / Christian Musician is typically a red flag for quality, although not quite as brightly hued as "Christian Film Actor" which has emerged in the last few decades. It's really only a matter of time before these religious companies have the exact same problems as the secular equivalents emerge. Who wants to guess who's the morman Weinstein?

I once dated a girl who was a direct descendant of Brigham Young (her family had left the church when she was like 5), which seemed wild until I realized he had 150 wives, there's a poo poo ton of people who are direct descendants of him in America.

Nobody likes Weinstein. At best he was the bridge troll you had to pay the toll to in order to get to greener pastures. If anyone's kissing his rear end in 2019 it's because they want what he could give others and are too stupid to realize that's not going to happen

He retired in 2013. That's when the first article is from. I assume it has a 2018 post date because they reposted it when they knew they were going to run the obit article so that it would be available for readers.

quote:

Guitarist Nick Hipa said that at first, he wasn't open to hearing Lambesis' apologies, referring to an interview the singer gave before his sentencing that amounted to "one long excuse."

"That's the moment that whatever shred of empathy I had for him turned into just blind hatred," he said.

But when they met in person for the first time since Lambesis' release, Hipa said he saw a changed man.

"It took all of those years, him facing punishment and the consequences for his actions, living in the ruin that he made for himself," Hipa said. "What he did was very public and it cannot be forgotten and it shouldn't. But that's part of what he has to endure for the rest of his life."

DiCaprio is rapidly becoming the new Jack Nicholson both in career and reputation.

And looks.

Also, one of the things I find the weirdest about Hollywood as a Business Culture is how being a verbally and even sometimes physically abusive piece of poo poo to people is completely and totally accepted as normal if you happen to be their boss. Anyone who's spent any time working in Hollywood can tell you that movies like Swimming with Sharks might as well be documentaries.

Like, there are plenty of other high stress industries, even industries where mistakes can cost, not just a lot of money, but peoples actual lives, yet (while there are certainly individual exceptions) strangely most bosses in these other industries don't feel that it's acceptable to verbally abuse their subordinates, especially not to anywhere near the extent than occurs in Hollywood. It's honestly really loving sick. And the fact that it's such a fundamental part of the Hollywood business culture goes a long way to explaining why all of this other sexual assault/harassment etc poo poo goes on as well.
