Animation isn't for kids

My newest topic is maybe art and not tv, but I think art is goodenough. I found an interesting article about Al Sharpton attacking a cartoon on comedy central, called Boondocks.{it is in qute marks if anyone feals like reading it} I myself have never seen it. I am a big fan of animation. Granted there all many kinds from the basic look of South Park to some truely amazing looking Animee that almost looks real to really good computer done stuff like final fantasy, the movie. But the thing with annimation is it is often assumed that it is for kids. Often that is very wrong. For example Haintai (basicly it is porn drawn animee style). Some movies and TV shows are aimed at kids but also have humor in them that only adults will get. Some cartoons like bugsy bunny are so violant. Looking back I wonder what where my parents thinking letting me watch that as a kid. Yes there are a lot of cartoons that are made for kids and only for kids. But Movies like Shrek have a lot of adult humor (from what I remember) in them. I think this is true of a lot of cartoons. I can remember when I was a kid a saw some animated movie where everyone was blue and all the ladies where topless, if it where not animated it would have been an X-rated movie just from all the nudity. I wish I could think of another good example of an animated Movie or show that at first looks like it is for kids but isn't. I am not blaming the animaters or the writers of the show but more the parents and maybe the advertisers if they make it look like it is for kids. I know Cartoon network used to show old Bugs Bunny (and other cartoons) that by todays standards are raciset or offensive real late at night but I think they stoped doing that.

below that is an ad for a sabres game that sounds interesting. Anyone who likes local music might want to check it out, I'm thinking about it, but who knows. I know i'm not the only dagger fan on this site.


Sharpton criticizes 'Boondocks' for showing King saying the n-word
NEW YORK (AP) - The Rev. Al Sharpton has asked for an apology from Cartoon Network for an episode of edgy animated series The Boondocks that shows the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. saying the n-word.

Huey is a character from The Boondocks Cartoon Network show and comic strip.
Cartoon Network

"Cartoon Network must apologize and also commit to pulling episodes that desecrate black historic figures," Sharpton, a civil-rights activist and former Democratic presidential candidate, said in a statement Tuesday.

"We are totally offended by the continuous use of the n-word in (cartoonist Aaron) McGruder's show."

Sharpton

The episode, The Return of the King, aired Jan. 15, the day before the national holiday honoring the slain civil-rights leader. It shows King emerging from a coma and using the n-word in an angry speech venting his frustration toward sexually explicit hip-hop videos, among other things.

In the episode, King is branded a traitor and terrorist sympathizer for his "turn-the-other cheek" philosophy of non-violence in response to post-Sept. 11 retaliation. Exhausted, he moves to Canada, but his speech provokes a second civil-rights revolution.

Cartoon Network released a statement Tuesday saying the episode is a tribute to King and "in no way was meant to offend or 'desecrate'" his name.

"We think Aaron McGruder came up with a thought-provoking way of not only showing Dr. King's bravery but also of reminding us of what he stood and fought for, and why even today, it is important for all of us to remember that and to continue to take action," the statement said.

McGruder, who has been called a "genius" and "the angriest black man in America" as he skewered everything from the Bush White House to Black Entertainment Television, began writing The Boondocks comic strip, on which the TV series is based, in 1997.

The strip, known for its risky political and social satire, follows the adventures of two black children living in a white, middle-class suburb.

Sharpton said he could appreciate McGruder and his achievements, but added: "This particular episode is over the line."

The Boondocks airs Sundays at 11 p.m. ET on Cartoon Network. It is the centerpiece of the Adult Swim late-night block of programming.

Kink (ho sisters might enjoy)

I'm listening to the sabres game and it is currently tied. I was going to post about kink but I couldn't find a good defination. It was listed as not being vanilla but what is vanilla. To me Misonary is boaring and awakward. But hanging upside down from my balls is to kinky for me. It is amazing all the differant ways people have sex and all the Strange (differant to each person) things people do. But what about people who swing, and ingage in S&M and bondage (for example) as a life style. Would misonary be kinky for them since it is so far away from there norm? To me what is kinky is differant for each person. My defination is that kink has to be a sex act that you usaly don't do, or is outside of your usal sex acts. I also belive that A lot of people have kinky fantasys and things that they enjoy in porn but that they don't do in there sex life. They may find those acts kinky in life but not in porn. I wish I could come up with a good example. I guess a good example might be people who on line look at autofellatio pics, girls who may not be legal age, shitplay, and golden showers. But in there own life don't have the desire to do or try those things. I think what got these thoughts going was to shows I saw one of wich was The Seceret life of women: Women in porn. It was interesting and then I saw a piece on 20/20 about this lady who lived as a man and wrote a book about it, and how men where differant then women and vice versa. She visted a strip club and saw it differantly then she thought she would. Plus there are all those Sex advice shows and The L Word. One thing that also started this was the mention in someones post of Donkey Punch. I think that is insane to do. But for those who enjoy it as long as the other person is down with it who cares. But how do you bring that up in conversation? If it is someone you love how do you say "hey when you are doing me from behind will you punch me in the head". It has to be tough to admit to things you think your partner will think is strange, what if they say that is sick and end the relationship. So it seems that somehow my post has come down to saying that great communacation is important so partners can discuss this kind of stuff.

Lockd

I was plainning on writing a journal about kink but I'm not in the mood. I went up to sweet tooth and just pizza and ate cuzz I was locked out. Then I was amble to get my back up keys. Time to go watch the rest of wife swap, wrestling and tape 24. On another odd note I forgot to mention I set off security devices at walgreens excerd and riteaid on the way in. I think it is because there is a lot of dust where I work and then I build up static. It could also be beacues maybe the RFID tags we use give off a singnle and maybe from the dust they build up, or who knows maybe I have a hight metal count in my blood, starnge in any event.

Bandits


Below are some pictures from the Badits game last night. I did get a pic of the entrance but it didn't come out that good. The bagpipper from Jackdaw (I belive there website is brokencans.com) plays as "Chutes and Ladders" By korn plays. Then the bandits came down through the crowd and onto the field and then got introduced. Bandits started out kinda slow but in the end wound up winning the game. The candian fans are something else. They are hard to describe. After the game I did get a couple pictures of a great limo. Maybe I will post it later.

Warm Ups #32 used to play for the Bandits years ago.

I thought I should have pictes of Taveres and Steinhous and the cheerleaders it gives a sampling. The pictures arn't perfect but it was interesting shoting to the left gave reflection and to the right not verry much. Up close you can see how messed up the glass really is.

I also wanted to mention thanks walt for the info on the quote. Hopefully I will have a reason to use it before I forget. Also Paul I hope you have a great Birthday, not sure what day it is. I hope the Steelers can win today. It will be a very tough game in Denver. For some reason I feal like saying Ladycroft, Carey and Alex (havn't met yet but I'm sure I will some day), oh and beast to all rock. For those of you who are anti casino or even for those for it; theres an interesting long article about it in artvoice. I admit some of it I disagree with but that is part of what makes it good.

Underworld

As part of my day of going to see the Bandits Tonight Hope they win. I went to go see Underworld:evolution (however you spell it). I thought it was very good. Plus Kate Beckinsale is amazing the things I would let her do to me :-) . I thought it was a very good movie. Yes it is a Vampire/Warewolf kind of movie, so if that is your thing you will most likely like. I thought that is had enough violance but wasn't to gorry plus it had a good stroy line. With out giving anything away I like that in the beging the sumed up the story from the last movie. I havn't seen the first one in some time and it was good for a refresher. It is also good for people who didn't see the first one. Before the movie I saw a great ad for the Olympics where everywhere they went was in a Chevy it was funny and showed a few of our Team USA atheletes. I also saw a couple really good previews and thought of a couple (e:peeps) when I saw them. The first one I have been waiting to see was for X3 i think they are calling it, it is the 3rd X-men movie and really looks good. The other one was for a movie called Stay Alive, it looks like The ring meets Jumanji, it is an underground Video game and what you do in the game then comes to life so if you die in the game you die the same way you did in the game. I did a bad job explaining it but it looks really cool.

Bandits

The topic is LAX it is a short hand version of Lacrosse. Bandits won there first game in Toronto and Play the Toronto Rock On Saturday Night. I have season tickets (1) on the glass so it will be amazing. I hope to post pictures on Saturday. The pics I put in the chat are Johny Tavares (not sure if I spelled them both correctly) and Mark Steinhouse [mask on]. I may go to see a movie on saturday. I never did get to see Rent or Aeon Flux but I would like to see the new Underworld looks good I can't tell about Bloodryne i think it is still out. For those of you who have never been to an indoor LAX game they are a lot of fun. It is a fun game plus they blair music during the game and don't stop during play like in hockey. In terms of price the really good seats cost around the price of the cheap Sabres tickets. But The players arn't paid like hockey player they are known as weekend warriors and have real Jobs and play LAX for the fun of it and the money also. Off to watch wrestling pic up pictures and put them in my album. I forgot to mention the increadable entrance of the bandits Bag pipes and Korn togather is amazing, ok take care all.

Wiretaps

Today at lunch we all got into a little debate or discussion about Bush and wiretapping the US people. There where two people who had the argument that it was fine to do so. They said they had nothing to hide and that it was worth it if the catch terrorists. I can understand there point except that it is short cited a little bit. They don't understand that Those susposid rules that the government has to follow arn't followed. The Government does what it wants and all they have to say is they where a threat, and listen in for hours. Bush is trying to take away people's rights. There is so much coruption in the government that it isn't funny. I can't stand that people willinly give up there rights so they can feal safe when all they are doing is being more controlled by the people we supposidly ellect. But waht I think he is trying to do more is push his morality off on to others. If wiretaps are so easy to do what is to stop a Christan Presidant to go after Muslums, or Jews, or budhists and just arrest them and hold them in jail. If Americans arn't carefull we may wind up like China. I think out of 45 minutes the debate with everyone lasted about 30 minutes. On other point that came up was the 9/11 attacks, and the point was made that they brought the war to us cause we where interfearing with the middle east. Yes clinton droped the ball with the middle east but they should have never been over there. Those people have been killing each other since before colubus got lost and found america and probably before the vikians came here, lets leave them alone and let them kill each other. If they can hate each other for that long lets not become there new Enemy. I'm sure someone will chime in here on this topic I hope.

PDAs

I thought I would touch on an interesting topic. Public Displays of Affection. I know some couples are verry comfortable with them. Some will even make out and grope each other in public. But I know some people are uneasy about it. I don't only mean doing it public (I don't mean sex that is another topic for another day) but also witnissing it. But what about the Kiss Cam. They have them at most major sports events I have seen it at Bluejays, Bisons. Bandits, sabres games, and other televised sports events. The way it works is the camara finds a guy and girl who are sitting next to each other and they are supposed to kiss. I would think some people might be offendend but not to many. But it is always a guy and a girl. It is possible that they may not be a couple. What if they are brother and sister or related? Since it is done during breaks in the action everyone is watching. But what I havn't seen is two guys or two girls. I have heard that they have done 2 guys but it was done as a joke. I think if they are going to do it then they should be equal opertunity offenders. Lets get some hot girl girl action or some boy boy action. I know they don't want to offend anyone. But That gay cowboy movie won a bunch of peoples choice awards so maybe the time is close. That brings up another point MLK hoped and had a dream that we would all be equal some day. I wonder with him being a religous man what he felt about sexuality. Of course if he thought about more then skin color then he couldn't come out and say it. Back then it would have lost a lot of followers. But I wonder what he really thought. I admit that watching PDAs is ok and can be fun sometimes but I'm not a PDA person myself, but I could be. Doing it out in public isn't bad or anything. But sometimes the people who do it are doing it as a way to show off and show they are togather so in that way I don't always like it. I guess my rant is over, now to go get a bj in a back alley, kidding of course. What is kinda weird is when you know the two people and you are talking with them and they stop to kiss, and your like ok, do I finish what I was saying or do i stop. Any comments would be cool if anyone feals like waying in on the subject.

red sun

Since I'm a walker and a buser and it was a holiday today I got to sleep in a little. It was nice to get an extra hour in the morning. As I got to work the sunrise was really cool. There was lots of red it was really cool looking. 24 was amazing last night and the rest of the premeire is on tonight. I don't want to say to much for those that tivo'd it or taped it Last night after 24 I switched over to showtime and caught most of the L word. Before they repeated the episode there was an add for Family Business. They didn't mention a specfic date but that the new season is coming soon. I then watched what I missed and the entire show made sense. I wish I wouldn't have taken my camara out of my coat last night I could have had some great pictures this morning possibley. Tonight wrestling and the sabres are also on so after 24 I will watch wrestling and listen to the game and check it out on commercals hopefully I stay awake for all of it.
