William Control made a nearly 20-minute video trying to debunk one of his accusers. I find it way too gross to watch in full, but it seems that a lot of his "evidence" of consensual behavior isn't actually disputing the main accusation: that he manipulated mentally ill and vulnerable women into consenting to things they ordinarily wouldn't have.

Also contains some hilariously graphic sexting descriptions that just go above and beyond.

I don't even know who this is. This one passed me by, I guess.

At least when Kevin Spacey "came out of the darkness" with a video, he had the good taste to mask it with a somewhat camp sensibility and the hideously bad taste of the apron he wore. It would be interesting to compare all the 'response' videos from those who have been effectively labeled as a 'predator' by the media.

Nope, nope, sorry, hard disagree.

He does have accountants, but that doesn't mean he doesn't spend. If I remember correctly from the interviews where it all got explained, he would just keep approving purchase after purchase of $2000 bottles of wine, artwork, yachts, sports cars, mansions, etc. to the point where the paperwork could barely keep up with him and it was just impossible to explain to him that he was hemorrhaging money so fast. Then when he found out he was millions of dollars in debt, he resisted selling anything and tried to blame his accountants and managers for his spending.

At first I was wondering how he could possibly spend that much on wine, like, wouldn't he just pass out at some point after, I don't know, 4 or 5 bottles in one go? But I forgot how loving expensive wine can get. Like, holy poo poo dude, if you drink that much, you're not drinking to enjoy the wine, just get the cheap poo poo, there's barely any difference anyway.

Wine snobs confuse me.

I wonder if Kate Capshaw, who now seems involved with feminism on at least some level, feels any degree of regret or remorse that she may have perpetuated certain stereotypes about attractive blonde women in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. I was always disappointed by that, particularly since Karen Black was so fantastic and wonderful in Raiders, drinking guys under the table and being pretty drat badass.

I actually cannot remember if it was Raiders or Temple of Doom that led to the creation of the PG-13 rating - I wanna say it was Temple, because I think the guy ripping still-beating hurts from mens chests and burning them alive in a sadistic blood sacrifice while naked men in loincloths shout otherworldly chants... I know it's nowhere near as gruesome or offensive as, say, showing a breast or, god forbid, pubic hair, But kids ought to be able to enjoy ritualistic human sacrifice and blood drinking, along with children being beaten and forced into slavery and labor. Again, not as likely to traumatize your kid as someone without pants on or a man saying the world "gently caress", but you never know...

Yeah, Temple of Doom is what led to the creation of the PG-13 rating, and the first movie to actually be PG-13 was Red Dawn.

It's kinda funny given one of the latest Ducktales eps has his return as Darkwing Duck... sort of. Where he plays Jim Starling, the actor that originally portrayed Darkwing Duck in an in-universe TV show, who doesn't take it well when a revival movie is starring a new, younger actor, even one who is a huge fan and deliberately styled himself after Jim Starling and considers Darkwing his dream role. To the point of trying to sabotage the new actor with increasingly unsubtle and violent methods, and finally going completely mad and after the movie is ruined (mostly thanks to Dewey).

AceOfFlames posted:

And even that is burying the lede somewhat: at the end Starling goes completely insane and becomes Darkwing's Mirror Universe version Negaduck. Meanwhile Launchpad convinces the new actor (not voiced by Cummings) to become Darkwing for real at which point the actor's name is revealed to be Drake Mallard.

Jesus Christ, this sounds amazing.

Yeah, but they did that because the video department was bleeding them dry since they made a hard pivot to video after Facebook lied to every media company about how much people wanted video content. They were absolutely mismanaged, but there are other factors.

True, Iím just salty because I really liked the video content they were putting out, and now those writers have scattered to the wind and are hard to find content from. It worked out for some (one is now a writer on Last Week Tonight, and another is a writer for American Dad) and Iím happy for them, I just miss the content.

Those two who got those good jobs just started a podcast together, though, so thatís good.

I think it's because her career stalled quickly, she didn't like acting very much as a kid anyway, and she had to go back to being a regular person. After 7 years she retired from acting at 13 and I think just went back to school and lived a normal life until she was an adult and could get some exposure as Matilda.

Her parents were also initially reluctant to let her try to break into professional acting at such a young age; the problem kids are the ones where the parents use them as an extension of their own power and fame and push them into performing, like Michael Jackson and Macaulay Culkin (whose father threatened to beat him if he used cue cards while hosting SNL at 11). The kids end up not really having a childhood and often suffering from other long-term symptoms of abuse, turning them into supremely hosed up adults.

But everyone uses cue cards on SNL. Even the cast members.

I don't doubt there are a lot of weirdo gamer goons, but I used to play a lot of Destiny and Diablo 3 with goons and only ever had positive experiences with cool guys. Which was nice, because most of the time that I've interacted with randoms in games it's a string of racial slurs punctuated with poo poo about how they 'raped' someone in a game. I pretty much exclusively just play with real life friends nowadays.

Same. I've largely stopped playing online games because I loving hate most of the people I interact with when it's random people. Goons are the only people (that I don't know personally) that I'll game with, join a guild with, whatever, because they're generally speaking decent people (or can at least fake it online) compared to the randos I would encounter elsewhere. Diablo 3, as you mentioned, is a good example of that. Regular gen chat was a cespool of racism and rape "jokes". The LLJK goon group was a cool group of goons I'd join for running Rifts.

Online gaming is where I adopted my life motto, "People are the worst". It's served me well in the real world the past few years, too.
