Some of the best

Howard Shore's epic score for Tolkien's world definitely deserves honors. Hans Zimmer's music for the Prince of Egypt is over two decades old but still stands as one of his very best. 1492: Conquest of Paradise -- a magnificent soundtrack by Vangelis -- should be on the list.


Jew got to be kidding me?

Morgan Freeman gets closer every day to playing Adolf Hitler in an epic WWII movie. Perhaps, Usain Bolt could get the role of FDR for total subversion of expectations! Of course, only a raycisss would object.


Twitter is your friend

Harry just wants attention:

As part of its efforts to counter harmful misinformation on its platform, a cooperative effort with the Ministry of Magic, Twitter has issued a fact-check on Harry Potter's claim that Voldemort has returned.

After the Boy Who Lived tweeted out, "He's back! Voldemort's back!" Twitter quickly went to work combatting the "dangerous misinformation," slapping the claim with a fact-check assuring Twitter users that the claim is in dispute and that "Hogwarts is safe and secure."

Twitter in the past:

A few years earlier: No hate towards taxes!

Be a slave to woke Math:


Make Benefit for Conflict

Taleb is learning that some races are more equal than others.

For example, here's a story from Quebec:

A high school teacher in Montréal-Nord is being called out after using the N-word multiple times during an online class captured on video.  The man in the video has been identified as Vincent Ouellette, a history teacher at Henri-Bourassa High School, a large and diverse French school in the city's northeast end.

You see, only Black people can say nigger without consequences. If a White person utters that word, then Black people combust:

"I understand it was in an academic setting, but to still see a white person — someone's white mouth saying these words — I was taken aback. It was wrong to me."

Instead of shrugging and moving on with her life, she is basically saying that White people can't say that word because Black people are feeble and fragile. Also, more Affirmative Action please, because Black people are dumb.

This is one reason why diversity in large numbers doesn't work. Sooner or later, you get utterly different academic and legal standards for the diverse races which only accelerates the inherent conflict between the groups.


Cast it into the fire!

Tolkien's glorious Lord of the Rings will be defiled by Amazon:

Amazon Prime’s “Lord of the Rings” series set to release in 2021 has been eagerly anticipated by devoted LOTR fans around the world. The $1 billion series will be set in the Second Age of Middle Earth, which spans 3441 years, before the events of the LOTR movies.

Unfortunately, it looks like the creators of the series, which they claim is based on J.R.R Tolkien’s original work, may be trying to imitate “Game of Thrones”-type nudity and “rapey” storylines. This, no doubt, will delight the left, who have long detested Tolkien’s writing and distinctive Christian influence on popular culture.


From Wakanda to Cracka

The fantasies go from sad to grotesque:

The new series starring the Hotel Rwanda actor, Hakeem Kae-Kazim, and rapper Saigon fantasises about an alternative history where white men and women are slaves who get brutalised, raped and even hanged.

Hip-hop music director Dale Resteghini is sick of ‘white supremacy’ and he really wants to stick it to white people by shocking them with an alternative history ‘revenge porn’ television series that reverses the race roles on slavery.

The next part is quite confusing.

Dale Restighini hopes that his new series will persuade people to vote against Trump and white supremacy as ‘Cracka’ is set to release on iTunes and Amazon Prime Video right before the 2020 U.S. presidential elections.

That's a bold strategy, Cotton.


Paw Patrol is Problematic

This is one of the major issues with books in the cloud and streaming shows and movies. They can be deleted when SJWs manufacture the latest problematic problem. Cop shows and police toys are being canceled. A producer who made mountains of cash from a successful detective show joins the virtue signalling by throwing his work and colleagues under the bus:

Last week Tom Scharpling, an executive producer of Monk, criticised his own show on Twitter: “If you – as I have – worked on a TV show or movie in which police are portrayed as lovable goofballs, you have contributed to the larger acceptance that cops are implicitly the good guys.” Griffin Newman, an actor who appeared in two episodes of Blue Bloods as a detective, donated his $11,000, or about €9,500, in earnings to a bail fund, inspiring other actors who have played cops to do the same. Lego has halted marketing on its Lego City Police Station and Police Highway Arrest sets. The A&E channel has pulled its reality show Live PD from the schedule. On Tuesday night, Cops, the show that branded suspects as “bad boys” and spawned the whole genre of crime reality television, was cancelled after 32 seasons.


Appeasement doesn't work

John Nolte provides a list of the works that have been blacklisted plus a list of soon-to-be obliterated shows and movies.

We are entering a very dark period of straight-up blacklisting, a mixture of 1984 with punishable thoughtcrime and Faherenheit 451, where we are about to learn from the political left that “there’s more than one way to burn a book.”

The more the studios and streaming services give in, the more demands the mobs will make. The correct response from the beginning to the SJW hordes should have been: Fuck off! 


Chris Rock Brings the Pain

A classic episode of the comedy Fawlty Towers will be reinstated to streaming service UKTV with a warning about "offensive content and language".

A 1975 episode titled The Germans was taken off the BBC Studios-owned platform because of "racial slurs".

The BBC got a lot of heat for this. They reversed their decision. The same can't be said for the following movies and shows that were once offered by other organizations:

HBO Max temporarily removed Gone With The Wind because of its "racial depictions", and Little Britain was removed from the BBC iPlayer and Britbox because "times have changed".

Netflix has also removed Little Britain plus David Walliams and Matt Lucas's Come Fly With Me, and The League of Gentlemen and The Mighty Boosh.

I wonder how long it will take before they start going after every mention of nigger in a show. For example, when will Chris Rock become problematic and be canceled? Note that the title of the following video doesn't even spell out the word.


No more niggers and wogs

Agatha Christie published her most famous work in 1939. The title of her book was Ten Little Niggers. The place it was set in was called Nigger Island. The story was constructed around a children's rhyme in which the word nigger makes ten appearances.

The book was heavily modified for the US market. The niggers were replaced by Indians. Of course, eventually, the Indians were also too offensive! So, the Indians were replaced by soldiers. Let's see how long the soldiers last.

I don't care that what Christie wrote was rude, offensive, hurtful, or problematic. I want to read her words -- not the continuously altered and degraded version offered by past and modern lunatics.

It was bad enough that assholes were going back and "sanitizing" classics by changing the words of the authors. Now, they've moved on to TV shows and movies.

An episode of Fawlty Towers famous for coining the phrase, “Don’t mention the war!” has become the latest “classic” British television programme to be taken down from a BBC-owned streaming service, as broadcasters continue to conduct a reappraisal of old British television content. [...]

The original broadcast also included a scene in which Major Gowen, a regular guest at the hotel, uses very strong racist language in relation to an anecdote about the West Indies cricket team. A decade ago many broadcasters began editing out this part of the programme, although the racist language can still be heard on the version hosted by Netflix.

It's the current year. Don't mention the niggers and wogs. So, many years ago, the censors cut out the "niggers and wogs" scene from Fawlty Towers. That was apparently enough to make the show non-offensive. Today, for who knows what reason, they've deleted the entire 30 minutes of that episode.


The Hidden Decline

The average American can buy a powerful smartphone with all the bluetooths and wifis but that is small consolation when their wages don't cover required expenditures.


Woke Illustrated

Sports Illustrated has introduced its next slate of finalist models for its upcoming swimsuit issue, and a plus-sized model, a 56-year-old model, and a bald fitness trainer will be among them.

The stupidity of it all:

“I hope every chocolate chubby girl and every thick queen around the world sees this and know that anything is possible,” Anyea continued.

“Your skin, size, shape, condition, beauty will not determine your destiny. Your will-power, faith, and determination will,” she said.

If a black whale can become a finalist for a swimsuit issue, then what exactly are the disqualification criteria?


An Absolute Jewel

During a recent interview with Out And Proud Magazine, Rise of Skywalker director J.J. Abrams hinted that the hotly-anticipated 9th installment of the Star Wars saga would include more clear LGBTQ representation, in the form of a lesbian AT-AT. [...]

Abrams further explained that the AT-AT’s character would be illuminated through conversations with Rey, who speaks fluent Imperial Walker. Because of course, she does.

Of course! The photo in the article is absolute gold.


Man the Harpoons!

Clown World: Embrace the FAT edition:

Making its international premiere in the Frontlight section, Danish doc “Fat Front” came to IDFA with a fair amount of buzz from its Scandinavian homeland, where it debuted in October. Directed by Louise Unmack Kjeldsen and Louise Detlefsen, the film follows four Nordic women—Helene, Marte, Pauline and Wilde—who are tired of kow-towing to society’s ideal of the body beautiful and have decided instead to embrace their curves.

I laughed at this:

Detlefsen added that the girls’ positivity was infectious. “We learned from the four main characters not to postpone our lives any more,” she recalls.

There won't be much of a life to postpone given their gravitational fields.


The preservation of civilization

Vox Day:

It's not enough to know about things. It's not even enough to know how to maintain them. It is vital to learn how to design, develop, and build things if civilized society is to be preserved.

That reminds me of this hauntingly beautiful line:

Much that once was is lost, For none now live who remember it.

One of the building blocks:

The Junior Classics campaign is going extremely well, having hit 300 percent of goal in less than 24 hours. You can acquire a digital set, a hardcover set, or a deluxe leatherbound set by backing the campaign.

You can back the campaign here. I'll buy the hardcovers in the future but I couldn't help getting the digital editions now since they're so shockingly inexpensive.
