…They are so far from “true reality” that it's not even funny?
(even documentaries, because they, too, have a “profit motive creativeness” slant and a “personally biased” exaggerational major element to them?)
And as a side question…Have you ever examined…
I never cared much for raisins.
Since I am not a big fan of media…hahaha, it’s true, I don’t really think it influences me that much. People influence me, the idiots on here, they pull out what lies deep inside, my imagination that has been subdued for way too long. Which ultimately developes into humor, but not always. Hmmm
And since I am a realist at heart, yes I do know that movies are all acting as are TV shows, even the reality ones. That’s why I don’t watch them. And the comercials drive me nuts!
Well, that’s not a smart oz answer, so ye see me serious side matey.
Gee it is tough but it would be a toss up between Mask and the one about Brian Piccolo (I think I spelled it wrong) They were both very good oh yeah and the one called A Dog Year with Jeff Bridges about Jon Katz dog he had the book was awesome I never did see the movie but the book was a tear jearker and the Blind Side was great too. Still Mask is one I watch every time it is on!
One need only see anything produced by Michael Moore or Al Gore to know that “true” movies are nothing of the kind.
Alas, many people take it as “fact” because they saw it on the big screen without taking a few moments to dissect fact from fiction or political dogma.
But that would mean they would have to think.
Wait… are you saying it isn’t really -14 in Barrow, Alaska?
I do realize it. I think some of the BBC documentaries are probably close, but the very fact that there are outsiders in the village mean that things are not status quo and are, therefore, not accurate portrayals of the subject. It’s like a Heisenberg Uncertainty Pricipal.
Deluxe Strawberry Shortcake
by tyler durden
* 1 quart strawberries, rinsed, hulled, sliced
* 1/3 cup sugar
* 3 cups sifted all-purpose flour
* 4 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 1/3 cup shortening
* 1/3 cup butter
* 1 cup milk
* melted butter
* whipped cream, sweetened with a little sugar if desired
Place strawberries in a large bowl; sprinkle with 1/3 cup of sugar. Let stand, covered, for at least 1 hour before serving.
Sift dry ingredients into a mixing bowl. Cut in shortening and butter until mixture is fine.
Add milk; stir with a fork until all flour is moist. Turn out onto a lightly floured board and knead gently for 20 seconds. Divide dough into 2 equal portions. Gently roll out or pat each portion to fit a 9-inch round cake pan. Place each portion into a lightly buttered pan; press edges to form a slight ridge. Brush with melted butter. Bake at 450° for 12 to 15 minutes. Brush each layer with butter. Spoon sweetened strawberries and juice between layers and on the top. Serve warm, cut in wedges, with whipped cream. Serves 10.
If using self-rising flour, omit baking powder and salt.
well, movies, for sure it is….
documentries, I do understand they are sometimes made to be more dramatic. For example, those National Geographic Inside the Green Berets or DC’s Navy SEAL’s BUDs mini series
But still, there are facts that can be learned from it, its fun. We wouldn’t want to see a video of the army doing a boring petrol and head home drink tea and sleep.
Titanic was the last epic I believe was made?
Best film lately National Treasure.
I’ve seen some “real” crazy sh!t in my life that no movie can reproduce, like the “smell” of blood and sh!t or the “sound” of someone taking their last breath.. RScott
I like books bescause they cool
