I’d like to take this moment to thank our Caucasian listeners for their support.

We’re going to miss you.

    Is Kyle always a defensive Pain in the Ass? X)

  • Stalkeye

    Jack, you might as well call your friend Dio a “Cracka” cause that Fat Fuck fits your description of such. Jus sayin.

  • Stalkeye

    XD

    I said the same thing about the Panthers comparison to the KKK to some Asshole from another thread. Some people are so damn ignorant. Kyle is the “whitest White guy” since he cant name not one Earth, Wind & Fire song. LMMFAO
    Jus fucking with you Kyle. You’re still a Pain, though.
    I forgot Beyonce was Black when she dyed her hair BLONDE????? XD XD Dafuq

  • Stalkeye

    American Ninja was a blatant rip off of Snake Eyes. Sowwies, Payne. 😛

  • Kyle Fulton

    Hang on, what was that about?

  • Dee

    Monster University is underrated too.

  • Dee

    The Dark Knight movies are Batman movies!

  • Dee

    No, let’s stick with “Football”. I like to tease European football fans who don’t like the word “Soccer”.

  • Dee

    Coldplay definitely is the lamest whitest band around.

  • Jack Randomm

    Casual anime racism? Pfffttt. Brush that shit off. It’s not like the Japanese are deliberately using stereotypical images to ridicule black people. They were just regurgitating white people’s sambo caricatures.

  • Jack Randomm

    Never considered Dio racist. Weird, paranoid, and volatile, sure. Not racist.

  • Jack Randomm

    I never noticed the Lockjaw similarity! Ha!

    And one day, somebody’s gonna have to explain to me what dying hair has to do with her heritage. I don’t get that at all.

  • Jack Randomm

    Thanks for the meme, Don Tito! This is awesome!

  • Dee

    Cannon movies still have more heart than the crap we get nowadays.

  • Dee

    Some Chuck Norris vehicles are still horrible though, especially the political subtext.

  • Jack Randomm

    I think Nolan was very close to nailing it. But somehow his Batman felt like a very specific niche elseworlds version.

    Bruce Wayne was fine. Batman, on the other hand wasn’t the guy from the comics.
    Not a very good detective, and so bad at combat that injuries force him into retirement after about 3 years. Close, but I think Burton’s first pass was closer.

    Snyder’s Bat looks and moves like a damn cartoon.

  • Dee

    I agree that the Batman of the 3rd one showed Nolan’s fatigue of the character a little. But I disagree that Burton’s version was better, I think he never really liked that character.
    And Batman’s fighting in the Nolan movies was fine, Nolan was just never that good at capturing the combat. And the movies were a little too stuffed already to focus on the detective aspect. But he did some detecting in The Dark Knight.

  • Jack Randomm

    I never liked those even as a kid. Norris was always the choice after Stallone, Arnold, every Expendable, even Kurt Russel.

  • Dee

    Norris and Seagal never showed the humour like the other ones.

  • Jack Randomm

    I think Burton nailed it the first time out. A lil campy, and I agree that after that he seemed to fall out of love with him.

  • Jack Randomm

    Seagal was enjoyable for different reasons. He was hilariously cartoony! The deadpan demeanor, spouting nonsensical philosophies, and completely unwarranted hyper-violence!

  • Dee

    He’s indeed very wise:

  • Jack Randomm

    And how in the fuck is he suddenly “my” friend? I’m new! You guys been down for years!

  • Jack Randomm

    That shit was deep.

    I may have to log off and reconsider my life choices.

  • Jack Randomm

    Huh?

  • Stalkeye

    Regardless of what you have said, many of the Japanese back then were very insensitive to when it came to Black people. Ever heard of “Sambo Mambo”? look it up.
    And dont let me get started on the not too recent Vampire Gil vs Frankenstein Girl.
    http://www.variedcelluloid.net/images/reviews/vampiregirlvsfrankensteingirl/08.jpg

    Oh yeah, like America forced them to do it. Not cosigning on that.

  • Stalkeye

    You tell me, Jack.
    Guy made an inside remark toward me; “I’m just calling a spade, a spade”.
    Also his Avatar had the Confederate Flag which he bragged about coming from the deep south. You don’t know how he roll when he gets heated do you? XD

  • Stalkeye

    Most Blacks don’t support this consensus of dying their hair Blond as with most whites dont get braids (Well, until Bo Derek made it “Famous”.)
    Blond hair on a “Proud” African-American might be perceived as a contradiction of sorts. Although I support the 50th Anniversary of the BP’s and even addressed to some idiot on another thread, that they were helping black communities with social programs like providing free Breakfast for Children in school, part of me believes that she’s using controversy like any other Musician in order to sell records.

    Never really cared for her music or destiny’s child back then, too much misandry if you ask me. To put your daughter in the video is that narcissist Bullshit.

  • Stalkeye

    I’m just going by his reactions to others who may not like or approve of certain films and such. In other words, I’m just stating the obvious. He often gets berated at times and I laughed my ass off with his “IT WAS AN ACCIDENT”! After I bust balls about the missing Cannon coverage.
    Its all ribbing anyway.

  • Jamill Payne

    I think purest form of Batman that I have seen is in “Batman Begins” when he makes his first apprence on the dock. It is shot form the badguys prespecetive like a horor movie. To me thats Batman, the crimnal boggie man.

  • Dee

    can’t disagree with that

  • Like everything else about him, it’s very passive aggressive. Except his lies-those are loud, bold, and 10 feet tall.

  • I once ate at Sambo’s and still feel the shame.

  • Jack Randomm

    Well, there ya go. You obviously know way more about him than I do. I talked to him once a week for 3 months on a podcast. In what like little contact we had, he knew better than to let me hear some bullshit or let me see any stars and bars.

  • Jack Randomm

    That’s…crazy. Blonde hair isn’t any sort of form of imitation. Some black people have blonde hair just like some black people have red hair. Shit, my grandson is blonde. All kinds of African blacks are blonde.

    I understand Beyonce isn’t a natural blonde, but neither was Marilyn Monroe, but nobody gave her shit about it. Besides, restricting a fashion choice because it’s perceived to be “that white people shit” is childish at best.

    The list of things we shouldn’t do or like because we’re black seem to get longer by the day. Bad enough when white people police our behavior. By some people’s judgement, I shouldn’t be into heavy metal, British television, golf, skiing, swimming, or hunting, because that’s that “white boy shit”.
    I don’t let others determine what’s black.

    As far as using controversy to sell records, that indeed may be the case. To me it looks like she’s putting her money where her mouth is. I can’t name many black celebs on her level that support BLM. Not to the extent she has. On the under, she housed homeless Katrina victims for years. On the under, she’s been bailing out jailed protestors. She gave over a million dollars tov fund

    I’ve heard a few of their tracks, and they all seem to be the same song over and over and over and over and over and over

On the under, she’s been bailing out jailed protestors. She gave over a million dollars to fund further activism. And even if the SB performance promotes her music sales, that’s why people do their songs live on the super bowl, right? To sell fucking records? She threw up a black power fist at the biggest stage in the nation and forced everyone to acknowledge at least for a minute. I won’t begrudge her a few albums sold for that.

    And remember that time she shit on the entire music industry, and went platinum on an album she released online with no promotion whatsoever? Remember Target throwing a public hissy fit, because she cut out retailers? Platinum in a week. No promotion. She doesn’t need to do publicity stunts.

  • Jack Randomm

    Oh, I know you’re just giving him shit, I just wasn’t sure what it was based on. He has lots of quirks to choose from.

  • Jack Randomm

    I can’t get mad at the Japanese for this. The classic racist caricature is as American as apple pie. That bug eyed, big lipped sambo image is a purely American invention. Until VERY recently all Japanese knew of black Americans is what white people told em. Wasn’t like a bunch of brothers over there to yell, “You know, this isn’t quite accurate.” Racism’s our most popular export. How you gonna hate on the Japanese for falling for white people’s bullshit, when black people here still fall for it?

    Do you have any idea how often I encounter shit like Mr. Popo casually displayed? In fucking Michigan? Hell, when I lived in hippy-ass Berkeley I was stunned at the number of lawn jockeys. What I’m saying is that we can’t get AMERICAN assholes HERE to stop displaying that bullshit, even when we’ve been screaming that it’s wrong for years. The Japanese are just copying what they’ve seen as America’s accepted depiction of black people.

  • Jack Randomm

    I can, and I do!

  • Dee

    Being married to Gwyneth Paltrow destroys your creativity.

  • Stalkeye

    Ha! You sound just like my best friend Kenneth. He often said the same thing on a few occasions and yes I am aware of racists caricatures from the old Loony tunes shows. Just that the Japanese were very ignorant back then. Ever heard of the time when they were afraid to touch or shake the hand of a black person for fear of getting “Black” on their hands and such? Look it up.

    Well, I can’t lie. America has a HUGE history of mistreatment toward Blacks and other races. But I as a person of Color, cannot and will not watch anything blatantly offensive ofr offensive’s sake. Yes, I like politically incorrect humor but not the mean spirited shit. I forgive the Japanese for their ignorance but then again, I often heard that the Asians are not into films with Black leads. Was it you who said your some went to school in Japan? If so, how was his experience there?

  • Stalkeye

    By some people’s judgement, I shouldn’t be into heavy metal, British television, golf, skiing, swimming, or hunting, because that’s that “white boy shit”.

    Well that would be a stretch, wouldn’t it?!!!??? I was referring to cosmetic not necessarily cultural. XD And thanks for the further intel about Beyonce that I wasn’t aware of. I stand corrected. I think politics brings out the worst in everyone. (*Grabs his Cats so Jack wont strangle them like he threaten to do with Puppies* LMMFAO)
    My boy, Ken had told me earlier how he got into a debate with some Conservative correspondent (I forgot her name but she’s big on the internet.) and schooled her about the SB controversy.

    You two are definitely alike in some ways!

  • Jamill Payne

    I really like Coldplay

  • Stalkeye
  • Jamill Payne

    The Dark Kinght Rises is Star War Prequels/Transformers level sloppy

  • Stalkeye

    He lied about being some guitar player in a rock band. I think he was trying to emulate a good friend of mine who you may know full well.
    He was cool in the beginning but as that song goes-“The more I see, the less I believe”.

  • Stalkeye

    You can’t tell whether or not I was being facetious or the fact that he was a co host from your podcast back then. Touchy.. XD

  • Stalkeye

    I know, I’m a bastid but WTF.

  • Stalkeye

    I would say that about Avco instead.

  • Dee

    We still love you.

  • Dee

    Why not both? Avco is a step above Cannon maybe.

  • Dee

    It was a messy movie.

  • Dee

    Is that upvote from Jesus?

  • Stalkeye

    I can’t remember, but at least I can tell you who downvoted him.

  • Stalkeye

    Avco had delivered so much in such a short time that based on their small but excellent library, I rate it way over cannon. Let it be said that Cannon had some solid gems like Delta Force, 10 to Midnight, Street Smart, Last American Virgin, Cobra and to a lesser extent Deathwish 3 Crackdown.

    I can’t forgive them for fucking up sequels like Exterminator 2, Superman IV, Delta Force 2 and a few others. Golan was more fixated on budget and shilling as opposed to creativity.

  • Stalkeye

    I was one of the firsts to compare it to Rocky 3. Batman loses to Clubber “Bane” during the first bout, trains hard for round two, then gets his “Statue”. Whaaaaa-waaaahhhh..!

  • Stalkeye

    XD

    Yea only Rocky 3 is a better, more coherent movie.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Mr. T deserved an Oscar. I am right about this.

  • Tarmac492.1

    I am white and hate Golf. I hate the whole county club vibe and the stupid “etiquette” associated with it. Black/white it just seems a sport for elitists. A generalization for sure by me, but whatever.

  • Tarmac492.1

    As someone who believes in Freedom of Speech and expression, I have no issues what Beyonce’ did. As far as the conservatives whining about it, well, until otherwise it is still a Free Country. As they like to say, “let the free market decide” whether it hurts Beyonce’ or not. When it comes to entertainers, I think this is the perfect court for them. The conservatives(and, as you know, I am right of center because big govt is suffocating us) bitching about her doing the BLM with a police escort is a moot point. The police are there to protect our personal liberties and it is their job to do so, whether they agree of not.That is why they would offer protection to the KKK when they held their rallies. It is what makes our country so beautiful for the most part. We are flawed, but still special. We are all going to lose out when we are so offended by everything and hating everyone who has a different opinion than us.

  • Tarmac492.1

    I always seemed to stare at Marilyn’s tits. Not her hair. LOL!!

  • Stalkeye

    Well said, Brother!
