It’s The Hypocrisy, Stupid!

Before


Harvey


After


I’m not particularly shocked or bothered to learn that Hollywood is a sleaze pit. It’s been that way since before my mom was born.

I am not outraged that so many people in Hollywood and elsewhere knew what was going on and looked the other way. I didn’t have a very high opinion of humanity in the first place.

What pisses me off is that the crowd in Hollywood claim to be our intellectual and moral betters. They might be richer than us. They are definitely more famous than us. But no fucking way are they better than us.

    It’s sad on a number of levels, especially if you are a movie buff. There is nothing better than a great movie with a great story, fabulous acting, delightful cinematography, cool music and so on. Well, maybe a good book. But they are just movies and it is a business like any other,. Many involved in the movie biz had to work their way up from the bottom. Especially the techies.

    But it is only recently that the wealthy actors have taken such public political stands. I grew up in the movie biz. My dad worked for Universal all of his working life from 1944-84. My dad would never have made a public political comment and he certainly did have his political points of view. In his position as VP of Distribution and Marketing, he entertained many famous actors and actresses and never, ever, in my recollection, did anyone ever even offer a hateful political opinion. Sad to say, I have not been to a theatrical movie release in quite some time. I owe my wonderful life growing up to the movie biz, but I will not support this new arrogant level of hypocrisy and hate…despite how good a movie might be. At some point, we need to stand up and voice our concern for their hateful disrespect.

    By the way, the neighborhood where my dad grew up in Cincinnati was also home to Doris Kappelhoff (Doris Day, she lived two houses down), Tyrone Power, George Chakiris, and a few others. They were always very respectful people. My mom and dad went to school with Rosemary Clooney. It’s all getting very tiresome.

      I remember when Hollywood loved this country. now not so much. a few still do but they get a hard time if they speak out.

    • Ann says:

      It sounds like you have wonderful childhood memories.

      • driguana says:

        Yes. I consider myself lucky growing up in the time and place that I did. It was fun, creative and enjoyable. I wish it was the same for more young people today.

    • taw46 says:

      driguana, those early years, what a special time to have been around the movie business. Wonderful memories for you. And you are correct, no one expressed their political views, nor did we care what they were, we wanted the magic of movies.

      Growing up, my sister and I watched movies on tv everyday, those excellent ones from the 30’s through the 50’s. As an adult, I went to the movies all the time. On my off days, sometimes I would see 2 or 3 a day. But now I rarely go. I too, tired of the hate and lecturing, in the movies themselves and from the actors. Just one more of life’s pleasures ruined by the left.

      • driguana says:

        While everyone has their own opinion, taw, I agree with you that movies from the 30’s-50’s were some of the best. I still prefer the old Universal sci fi flicks form the 50s’. They had their own subtle messages.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Whoa. My dad grew up in Hamilton, one of the ghetto suburbs of Cincinnati, visits to grandma in the 50/60’s included an outhouse, but I never noticed, guess “white” folk weren’t so white privileged afterall, but it was happy times.

    • Jadzia says:

    • Island Girl says:

      Wonderful story! Don’t let the debauchery of this era destroy those wonderful memories. I remember hearing my parents had some friends in some seedy street in Hollywood. We lived in Orange County CA by then so it was enlightening how not sophisticated where they lived was but I too LOVE my LA WOMAN (LOL) roots. Sad what seems an end of my childhood innocence.

      I have no idea if Trump’s ME policy will pan out or not, but I believe his putting pressure on some of our so-called allies to start earning all those millions of dollars in aid will yield some positive results. I don’t believe the ME can be managed…nearly all those effin countries are sympathizing and harboring extremists. I think Trump, for all his faults, definitely understands the concept of leverage. Obama couldn’t do shit because he himself is a sympathizer.

      Did you hear that a-hole “reporter” at the very end ask, Mr. President, are you with PR to the end?
      Trump has been saying that since day one.

  16. mothy says:

    What is up with Bannon saying something about Trump and 30% chance of finishing term. My mother is losing her mind. Very upset (DJT was her first R vote. I am in a good mood and don’t want to read some bull shit .

    • lyn says:

      Consider the source … CNN.

        I didn’t even look for source. Figured you guys would know what’s up and I could avoid stress.

          That CNN headline popped up on MSNBC when I signed in to my MSN e-mail. I resisted the temptation to click.

          • Somebody says:

            I believe the original source is an article in Vanity Fair. They have yet another article bashing Trump and questioning his sanity. The sources are all anonymous, “leading republicans”, sources in the white house, sources with knowledge of a conversation POTUS supposedly had.

            That particular 30% comment is presented as “Bannon has told people”. We don’t know what people. It could be a guy named Al Bannon from Poughkeepise.

            Shorter, the article is pure speculation and utter bullshit.

  23. Constance says:

    This is perfect timing for President Trump to demand the option of cable TV a la carte for all consumers with a threat of suing to recover over charges from forced subscriptions to channels/as-venues no one wants. That would slash profits for media companies and collapse their whole cartel. Go for it Trump, hit back at the scum!

    • helenk3 says:

      good idea

    • SHV says:

      That would be the M.O.A.B. on the media cartels. I’m not sure how al la carte would work, however, they likely would increase the cost for single channels so after a few, the “package deal” would be cheaper.

      • Constance says:

        Still they would have entire genres wiped out like “Women’s content (as labeled by men 15 to 50) And women would no longer be forced to subsidize men’s content they don’t watch like football and other sports. Conservatives would no longer be forced to subsidize liberal channels although MSNBC is good for laughs on occasion. It would be a glorious collapse.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      The front desk staff must feel pretty comfortable around me as the three of them brought up how they and their families have stopped watching football. They come from very different backgrounds. The military family would not surprise most but I think the SJW jaws would drop at the others. The primary factors for the non military are: they can protest on their own time and own dime; they are lucky SOBs with a potential for life long security that few people will ever have the opportunity to achieve (although many will likely waste it away); and, they could make a real difference by moving their butts off their knees and out into the communities and show kids their are other options than life on the streets. But they need to learn to show people, all people, some respect. They are acting like ^%&$#*.

      It may be hitting a wider swath than they planned.

    Something about this just isn’t right…

    • Somebody says:

      A contract like that can’t be legal.

      • Lulu says:

        It isn’t. A contract cannot “permit” or condone illegal behavior or acts. Someone is CRAY-ZEE and I think it is old Harv the pigboy. That is like Contracts 101. It is called an illegal agreement. It sound like he founded his company so he could rape women. He calls it sexual harassment but it is attempted rape or in some cases prostitution by the ones who give in or agree to his terms. He thinks if he pays them for a movie acting job that services include prostitution or something. The harassment is the negotiation or how he informs them what he expects. A job with him is sex slavery. Now he deludes himself and thinks he cant’ be fired or run off.

  32. Somebody says:

    Puppy update. The little dog Mitzi has doubled in size, she is now 5 pounds. Her sister is 5 and a half pounds, she is a few ounces shy of gaining 2 pounds since we got her.

    They got their final puppy shots today! No more shots for a year! Thank goodness Macy starts yelping at the sight of the vet and really lays it on thick when she sees a needle. Mitzi did let out a tiny yelp over the rabies shot, but was fine in about 30 seconds. That was the first time Mitzi seemed to notice or care. Macy on the other hand OMG, I fully expected her to faint.

    They are still not completely house trained. We have accident free days, longest stretch was 3 days. Some days only 1 or 2 accidents and then days like today where I take them out 10 million times and they do nothing outside, save it all for inside.

    They’ve been sleeping in the bed for 4 nights now. I thought for sure Macy was my snuggler, but no. She sleeps by my lower legs sometimes inching up a little toward my waist. Mitzi snuggles, but only on top of the covers and you can’t put your hands on her or she’ll move. But Mitzi snuggles up tight by my chest area, then sneaks over to snuggle with hubby, returns to me……on and on.

    Mitzi also does a really annoying thing. She walks up my body and licks my face and nips at my nose when she feels it is time to get up. She has a good sense of timing because she beats the alarm by a minute or two……but damn, I about pissed myself the first morning she did that.

    • elliesmom says:

      Ellie weighs 85 lbs so she sleeps on the floor, but she puts her head on the bed and stares in my face when she thinks it’s time to wake up. And I have to make sure I keep my toes under the covers because she has no trouble reaching them. Thank goodness I’m not ticklish.

    • votermom says:

      Awww. They sound really bonded to you.

    • votermom says:

      Is Mitzi the one that your hubby picked?

      • Somebody says:

        Yes the feisty little one. She’s hyper and afraid of her own shadow, but she is the happiest little puppy.

        Macy is more aloof, she acts more like a grown dog. She only puts up with so much of Mitzi’s nipping and puts an end to it. They are both sweet, love to be held, but don’t like being held in the bed it’s odd. They will cuddle up beside you, but hands off???

        • Somebody says:

          Oh I forgot to add that Macy will snuggle with my youngest grandbaby. Yesterday g-baby and I were in the bed reading stories and Macy wanted up on the bed. I assumed she wanted to be close to me, wrong. She curled up in g-baby’s armpit with her head on her chest…….I was like hey, what’s this!

      When you really start to think about all of this it has to do with greed, power, ego, money…the whole idea of wanting to be “a star” is really pretty narcissistic. That’s what they want and going through dirtbags like Weinstein is just a mirror of the decadence.
