Kimye Karma – Schadenfreude For Taylor Swift?

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West head back to their hotel in NYC

I generally steer clear of tabloid gossip but sometimes the irony is just so schadenfreudalicious. Taylor Swift is somewhat infamous for writing songs about her past relationships. It turns out that Kanye West wrote one about a relationship that hadn’t even started yet.

I really have to give credit to Kim Kardashian though. She parlayed a homemade porn video and no talent into a very lucrative career. Now it looks like she’s got a long-term contract to raise Kanye’s baby. And you just know there’s gonna be another cable show starring Kim and the baby.

BTW – Khloe Kardashian just got canned from The X-Factor. Apparently the producers were shocked to discover that she really didn’t have any talent either.

This is an open thread.

    Do not. You were watching CNN and NBC just last week.

      LOL, our cable is being “upgraded.” My job right now involves listening to people complain about not being able to watch anything on TV.

      It really is bad. For the last 72 hours and we have only one local channel, the home shopping network, and msnbc. People are about to riot and I’m starting to get worried. The baseball fans are the worse.

      That is one really large mofo

  5. Nice subtle irony there with his Gold Digger video. He ended up with the ultimate gold digger, yes?

  6. votermom says:

    Can anyone recommend a movie about World War 1 suitable for middle school? Something that makes the reasons for the WW1 come alive.

    • myiq2xu says:

      Sgt. York is a classic – it stars Gary Cooper and it’s based on a true story.

    • 49erDweet (D) says:

      you might also check out the older version of “All quiet on the Western Front”. At one time it was a classic, but fell out of favor with Hollywood-types in later years over PC issues beyond my paygrade.

      • 49erDweet (D) says:

        airc Churchill also played a strong role in WWI, and I think one of his thousands of quotes had to do with both WWs having the same cause – others underestimatiion of the reaction to european events by British citizens. or something like that.

    • Somebody says:

      Oooh good one, yes please share your suggestions on WW1 and WW2.

      VM do you have any suggestions for WW2? My daughter is in 7th grade and we really need to delve into WW2, time to read Diary of Anne Frank and all that stuff. I LOVE history except I can’t handle WW2 as far as Europe and the Holocaust. When I was a child we had neighbors that were Holocaust survivors and of course they had friends that were survivors too. My parents thought it was important for us to know about the evil and perhaps they were right……if I had been a little older, say the age of my sisters.

      Anyway the whole subject is difficult and personal for me, knowing survivors, hearing their stories…….some pretty gruesome stories. I realize that sounds silly, it’s not like I’m a survivor. It hard to explain I guess, except being somewhat traumatized as a kid.

      Soooooo we’ve covered the Pacific theater, touched a little on the European but not in the way we really should. Any suggestions you have would be appreciated. My soon to retire husband has volunteered to handle that part of history for me!! He’s a major military history buff, especially the aviation aspect……so he’s a good choice. If only he would teach Math and Science for me too, LOL!

        WWII – Schindler’s List, Band of Brothers, Das Boot, Tora, Tora, Tora, Farewell to Manzanar, Midway, Memphis Belle, Judgment at Nuremburg.

        The History channel has some good stuff you can get on DVD

        • myiq2xu says:

          Battle of Britain, Sink The Bismark, Anzio, and there was a recent one about women working in the defense factories.

          Letters Home From Iwo Jima gives the Japanese perspective of the war.

        • Jadzia says:

          Did anybody mention Louis Malle’s “Au revoir, les enfants”? That one IS upsetting. But it is a magificent film.

      • fernschild says:

        I’m not sure how appropriate these are for a 7th grader, but The Hiding Place, Life is Beautiful, Sarah’s Key and The Boy in the Striped Pajamas all touch on how war affected ordinary people. Of course, if watching will leave you feeling gutted, be careful. I think everyone should watch Casablanca, so you can see Paul Henreid leading The Marseillaise and understand the emotions that evokes.

        • myiq2xu says:

          The Hiding Place

          I read the book back when I was in high school. I even got to meet Corrie Ten Boom.

        • votermom says:

          My HS kid (10th grade) just watched The Boy in Striped Pajamas in school as part of learning about the holocaust.
          For WWI she said they watched Fly Boys.
          That reminds me, I think we will rewatch The Red Baron since it is on netflix, that’s a good one too.

        • Jadzia says:

          The Garden of the Finzi-Continis is another one; set in Italy. My recollection (having seen it about 20 years ago) is that it is not too gutting, but as a parent I would pre-screen it first just to be sure. The Marseillaise scene in Casablanca really chokes me up, and means more to me now — we live just south of the French Demarcation line, and my FIL (and other family members of that generation) grew up just north and south of it. I see that war so differently now — every town in France has a WW2 memorial. Even my town, which only has a population of 1000. There are far too many names on that memorial for such a small community. Some people believe that the famed rudeness of Parisians arose out of the occupation and the culture of complicity that caused them to fear what their neighbors might say about them to the occupied gov’t.

      • HELENK says:

        this is all your fault, you now have me watching again “the Winds of War”. funny how people just refused to see what was going on around them. blind and living in their own little world until all hell broke lose

        • votermom says:

          Winds of War is great, except maybe for Ali McGraw – everyone acts rings around her. She must have been the original Kristen Stewart (Bella in Twilight).

        • HELENK says:

          she got on my nerves the first time I watched it and again so far. the character she plays always annoyed me, she put her baby in danger when she did not have to do so

    • HELENK says:

      all quiet on the western front

    WW2 movies

    why we fight
    the story of GI Joe – the Ernie Pyle story
    Coming Home
    can not think of the name of it the Audie Murphy story
    Never so Few

    • HELENK says:

      best years of our lives
      wing and a prayer
      the Sullivan Brothers
      fighting seebees

      I tried to think of movies that covered different parts of the war and the aftermath

      • Somebody says:

        Thanks Helenk

      • HELENK says:

        so proudly we hail – women in war

        • HELENK says:

          copied this from the best WW2 movies that capture the feeling of the time

          I don’t think any ONE film can capture the full emotion and realism of that time. My personal list of films that come close are The Longest Day (1962), The Great Escape (1963), Battle of the Bulge (1965) much less so, A Bridge Too Far (1977), Cross of Iron (1977), The Big Red One (1980), Das Boot (1981), Schindler’s List (1993), The Thin Red Line (1998) and the Danger UXB (1979) series.

          I purposely left out overly dramatic ones like Stalag 17 (1953) and The Bridge on the River Kwai’ (1957) because they get play a little too fast and lose with history for dramatic effect. This is opposed to other films that must do it out of necessity.

        • 49erDweet (D) says:

          Not sure but check out the three part series now on PBS on Sundays, The Bletchley Circle, Starts during WWII with women top secret code breakers (true) who could never tell anyone ever of the key roles they played breaking Nazi war plans. Shows how women did vital jobs, too.

        • HELENK says:

          the Ken Burns series The War

    • myiq2xu says:

      The Audie Murphy story is called “To Hell and Back” and it stars Audie Murphy.

    • Jadzia says:

      I remember this best as having been played over the last scene of the pilot episode of the late, great “My So-Called Life.” Claire Danes was amazing. Back then, I identified with her character. Now I identify with the mom!

    • Jadzia says:

      What a great video. At least I’m crying at home now (it’s midnight), as opposed to the crying spell at the beauty salon this morning. Fortunately, although there were people in there whom I know, literally NOBODY in town recognizes me anymore since I went platinum blonde. Not even my landlord!

    your husband is safe from furlough. congress passed bill to fund air traffic controllers untill Sept 30th

      • Somebody says:

        Seriously so that means he doesn’t have a 3 day weekend??

        • Somebody says:

          Oh I see the Senate passed something, the house hasn’t voted yet. All they’re doing is pulling unused funds in to back fill the budget. This is a bandaid and doesn’t address future years funding. The sequester keeps on keeping on unless and until an overall budget deal is worked out, so everybody will be right back here next year if this is all they do.

          The FAA took a 637 million dollar cut, this bill moves 250 million which they say is enough to keep actual controllers working. I presume the rest of the furloughs within the FAA will still take place. I wonder in the 250 million figure covers control room supervisors too? They don’t actually work traffic, hmmmm.

          Hubby’s first scheduled furlough day is Saturday. I told him I was 90% sure his furlough would remain in place for Saturday…….his next scheduled day was May 8th. I told him I thought that one was 50/50 at best probably 70/30 that it wouldn’t happen. His finaly furlough day was scheduled for June 1st (his last day), but they had to switch it to May 29th, because he must be in a pay status his last day. I told him it didn’t matter I’d bet our house that there would be no furloughs by then.

          The Senate has surprised me though I figured they debate, wheel and deal for at least another week or two. Fun fact, the first week of the pay period the controllers are furloughed……the second week which starts Sunday the supervisors are furloughed at least at the bigger facilities like hubby’s. So flying next week probably wouldn’t have been as bad, not to diss supervisors…..but they don’t work traffic.

        • Somebody says:

          I’ve searched and I can’t find the contents of the bill. The only thing I know is that it is titled “Reducing Flight Delays Act of 2013”.

          I presume sometime tomorrow or this weekend the full bill will be posted. I’m curious if it is a clean bill or if they slipped stuff into it.

    did anyone see the clip of the bomber’s mother talking about how her sons were framed and how America took her sons from her. very dramatic.look closely there is not a tear in that woman’s eyes
