Quote from: pronetoaccidents on September 09, 2015, 11:11:52 AMuh, okay aaron. sorry i guess? would you rather me lie and say i read about it in fucking tv guide? i was under the impression i could say whatever the fuck i was feeling around people i thought cared about me (we have been exchanging p.m's and talking on facebook about our drug and life problems for years now) but anyway, maybe i'll just lay low and keep my writing to my blogs and self. sorry to soil your message board experience with my life and i was talking about television. how it was enjoyable to have. You're right about the internet being all one needs. I don't have that. Whenever I post here it's on a workforce 1 computer for the most part, library sometimes. but i digress, it's about tv not me, right? I'm upset I won't be able to watch Season Two of the Knick. American Horror Story was pretty cool. It's also nice when i can't go to sleep to just have a random channel playing. i've always found white noise soothing

Quote from: skateandannoy on November 06, 2015, 10:01:15 AMWhat's with this neo-blackface thing going on in comedy? The Halloween episode of Louie was so weird
Quote from: lindsey on November 06, 2015, 12:22:13 AMIt seemed to be more of a spoof on those like, "you don't have to talk to a cop" videos, which is dumb because those are important.
Quotebut it was so loosely executed that you are kind of left wondering if he even IS actually making a point about institutionalized racism or just...making an easy joke, in black face.

Quote from: jer on November 05, 2015, 09:59:11 AMi'm not exactly qualified to speak to this, but the piece does seem to be very obviously satire and the butt of the joke is by no means black people, the butt of the joke is the type of idiot willing to wear black face, and the police response to him as a white guy vs him as a black guy.but this is the first i'm hearing about it, so there's probably some more qualified people who are taking this differently. from my perspective the satire couldn't be more obvious, unless you put a flashing "SATIRE" marquee on the screen.

I hope you allow me to help.I get the impression you speak in absolutes, or at least in quoted statement, the syntax you use equates to one of either (A) the new bob & david show is not that funny objectively or (B) the new bob & david show is not that funny because I believe it that is fact...Facts can be false. I'm sure you remember that class when you were in school as a kid. I enjoyed it myself. If your logic is (A) is does not bear up to evidence, as I myself did not perceive that reality. The inconsistency questions the veracity of your factIf your logic is (B) then I would assume, but never claim to know, that you ascribe to relativism, certainly of the cultural niche and perhaps too of the moral? That is an induction that could be wrong however. Being one of cultural relativism means you must have mistakenly wrote your statement without considering the agency of others' relativism...which makes your statement quite a failure....unless of course you intended to take that agency from me, which might explain the somewhat confrontational, troll-ish diction surrounding a fact that is becoming more and more inconsistent that the only current implication, considering intention to deny my agency and relativism, would mean you perhaps consider solipsism as the most consistent aspect of your reality.As there in no logic necessary in solipsism because it would mean you and only you exist, the need for any systemic and critical understanding would be superfluous to anything other than your own selfish needs and desire.I could imagine Ayn Rand and you sitting by the trains, sipping tea together.Perhaps a way around all this is to try a new logic, perhaps anti- Aristotelian logic where competition isn't necessary, perhaps? Allow me, please, and for your pleasure, to rewrite your fact to a more consistent one with the present reality that I think we both exist [but truly the possibility of our existing in differing dimension is certainly a possible, if not highly improbably, end result]the rewrite: 'While I personally feel your post was distasteful mansplainin, I don't have the time to examine the reasons why, but it seems like the new mr show happens to not be that funny. nothing bigger conceptually than any ol podcasts that I have heard and I persoanlly think have already gone after such endgoals of satire in their comedy, but not knowing what you have heard and how you have no knowledge of mine, I guess we are both right when analyzed from our respective perspectives. 'Now if you meant what I just re-wrote and I misinterpreted it, apologies. I am simply acting on the little I know and thought I could help you refine the meaning behind your statement of fact, which I found upon evidence to be quite a false statement.Hope you are having an awesome day amig@-aaron
