A Few Questions That Arose While Watching The First 15 Minutes Of Dominion: A Prequel To The Exorcist

1. Why do these types of movies always involve some kind of evil African tribal element? Isn’t that fundamentally racist?*

2. In real life, when a car drives into a poor town in a Third World country, do all the children in the town really chase it down the street?

3. If so, wouldn’t it make more sense to send ONE kid ahead to see what the vehicle is carrying and have the rest conserve their energy, because after all they are in a Third World country and probably hungry?

Okay...that racism PSA is the worst thing I've ever seen.

Gross.

In it's own twisted way...it seems to be saying all white people are physically beautiful...it's just their attitudes/beliefs that make them ugly.

That's the worst campaign against racism I've ever seen.

Shouldn't it be...everyone has worth/value and we are all equal...so racism is wrong?

Not...don't be a racist...so you can look better.

Under your "blogs that make me want to be a better man" I clicked on "Afraid of the Dark"....something weird happen.

Sorry to destract from the subject of this post - but hey, you never acknowledge me anyways so it's like I'm not even here...

rawbean: That is utterly bizarre. I guess he shut down his blog? Or he got hacked. Either way, I'll take care of it. Thanks for the heads up.

And Talk, I thought it was just saying that Racism brand face cream may iritate your skin, if you are a bigot. I never get these "metaphors."

Yes kids in poor countries follow cars. It's annoying, but if you throw them old porno mags, at least it feels like some sort of moral victory (until you realize you are out of porno.)

I bet that makes people with raging acne feel really good.
What jackass came up with that concept?!

re: Afraid of the Dark

Jacob said he was going to stop writing on the 25th (or something like that), though I'm not sure why that would stop you from being able to read it. At any rate, I think it went all crazy sometime last week...

As I was nearing the end of the video I half expected it to say "Meth...still wanna apply it to your face in a nice silky cream?"

But then they through me for a loop with the whole racism thing.

Brilliant point.

Again I say...the WORST racism PSA I've ever seen.

Isn't the whole point of battling racism to get people to STOP judging folks on appearance?

By Blogger TALK!, at 9:47 AM  

I think the ad is telling us that people with sores on their faces, or other such marks, are evil. It's like the 666 in Revelation. We should all throw stuff at them, preferably while either laughing or pointing or mocking or all three at once.

By Blogger Rebecca, at 10:12 AM  

Whoa, whoa, whoa, wait a second - is that the point of battling racism? Because if you can't judge people by their appearance, how else are you supposed to judge them? Like by their cars?

Bottom line: DON'T USE RACISM BRAND FACE CREAM! Come on people, let's not read too much into this.

I thought the PSA announcement was that rubbing a jar of Crisco on your face might give you acne. It was about racism?

By Blogger Leezer, at 10:39 AM  

You're right BI...cars are a much better barometer of worth.

What do you drive? A "Dump" truck?

Snort...tee hee...guffaw

Ahh....I slay me. ;)

I had no idea what that punch line of the PSA was gonna be, but honestly it could have just have easily said
"Battery acid will F*CKING eat your face off. This message brought to by the stop using battery acid to wash your f*cking face council."

Wasn't there a heroin PSA that had that same basic message in the 90's?

The originality of a XEROX Machine...

That PSA was gross. I almost threw up. I wont ever use that skin cream

By Blogger Softball Slut, at 12:06 PM  

I think I have some of the cream somewhere in my bathroom. Are there any guidelines about how to safely dispose of it, you know like used car oil?

By Blogger Cheeseburger, at 12:53 PM  

When I was traveling in India and I would go into small towns rarely visited by tourists not only would the children chase down the car but they would reach in to touch my hair and skin I assume because they had so infrequently--if ever--seen white skin and blonde hair.

My brother recently came back from vacationing in Domincan Republic where they rented 4-wheelers for the day. They took videos of themselves driving through the little town and oh my god,it was so sad to see. All the little kids really chased them so my brother would ride by and give them all high-five and it honestly looked like they just won the lottery. TIP: Bring candy or toys that you can pass out for the kids if you do this - it'll be like christmas for them! *tear* :P
