    Is she the most relevant 59-year-old?

    And unlike a certain other 59-year-old, she devotes all her energy to the channel bearing her name.

    Oh, goodie. Another movie meant to tap into white guilt and have us feel sorry for black people.

    How about a movie where a black guy invents something and works hard to make a fortune? I'm waiting for someone to write that movie. In the meantime, they'll keep filming "Driving Miss Daisy"


    Takei needs to hurry up and make his Japanese internment camp movie so we can continue to feel guilty. I'm sure those Japanese are feeling really awful about the Bataan Death March. Takei conveniently forgets that the Japanese are the MOST racist people on the planet. A non-Japanese human cannot even become a Japanese citizen.

    What Steadman Graham thinks every night before he gets into bed with Oprah.

    "Oprah's a bank account to me. I mean, Oprah's an inspiration to me."

    On road trips what Gayle King thinks every night before she gets into bed with Oprah.

    "Oprah's a bank account to me. I mean, Oprah's an inspiration to me."

    It would end up being how Edward "Skippy" Williamson and Frederick "Jif" Armstrong stole George Washington Carver's recipe for peanut butter.

    She, like other prominent progressive blacks in power, continue to use the victim card whenever possible.

    I also saw an article recently that said Oprah's TV network is now profitable, even though Wiggy continues to call it a failure. Why doesn't he release the subscriber numbers for Howard TV and let people decide who the real failure is.

    great minds this alike...i just got finished telling my dear husband the exact same thing (except i used "nuclear scientist"). apparently, oprah's race baiting paid off. any white person who sees that trainwreck is out of their mind.....everyone in that cast is absolutely unwatchable. the characters of the presidents and their wives are almost parodies (i sat through the coming attractions of this shit) and the only decent actor is forest whitaker.
    they're already talking about oscar nominations for this drek.
    this realllly pisses me off.

    Because in the Howie universe, there's reality, and there's Howie's reality.

    I'm kinda surprised Jobs bombed. Thought people would go see it. Kick-Ass 2 doesn't surprise me. The first one was kinda quirky fun, but the ads for the new one looked just dumb. The girl is older and it's just not all that novel for her to be spewing foul language anymore. Plus Jim Carey refusing to do any promotion didn't help.

    i think many people go to her movies, watch her show, etc. because they consider it their "duty". I'm surprised she hasn't run for president yet: the asshole vote would be a tidal wave washing her into office.

    i'm not surprised about Kutcher: i think the general public has realized he's nothing special and people have become tired of his constant self-promotion.

    Carey refused to promote it because he thought it was way too violent.

    BTW, Carey is a pompous asshole:

    [​IMG]

    Woz on the movie and Kutcher:

    'Specifically, he said, “I thought the acting throughout was good. I was attentive and entertained but not greatly enough to recommend the movie. I suspect a lot of what was wrong with the film came from Ashton’s own image of Jobs.” It’s a compliment and an insult wrapped into one, telling someone they did a great job on getting their character wrong.

    It has to be strange to go to a movie and watch your life, or someone’s interpretation of it, and there are a lot of people involved with this story that are very much still alive and probably don’t want to see their reputations get shat on. “I felt bad for many people I know well who were portrayed wrongly in their interactions with Jobs and the company,” Wozniak said.

    I don't watch the late night shows but I heard Oprah was on Kimmel's show last week and he didn't ask her a single question about her charges of racism when she was shopping in Switzerland. If Leno did that Howard would complain that he was kissing her ass and asking softball questions, just like he did when Mel Gibson was on the Tonight Show. Of course, Wiggy completely ignored the fact that Kimmel did EXACTLY the same thing when Mel was on his show.

    Get used to it. From seeing the trailer of that movie I bet it sweeps the Oscars. Hollywood loves to honor that type of movie, plus it did look good.

    Forrest Whitaker is a great actor, and that helps.

    I've actually found Justin Timberlake to be a pretty good actor in the stuff I've seen him in.
