Bruce Rosenberger? Was he one of the communist sympathizer they executed? Give me a clue.

Did I mention him in this one? Because if I did, I just totally forget is all (I do recall being momentarily possessed by his evil spirit over on THOOM, though!) Rosenberger hosts another podcast and is probably most notable for declaring Ebony White (aka Buckwheat II) to be (somehow) inoffensive in any way, shape, or form. Now, I admit Eisner's old Spirit stories are mostly great...but come on!

He was created in the 40's, it was the time of such behavior and it was okay then. That he never updated Ebony White's looks in spite of the U.S altering racial outlook is bad. Of course Ebony White is offensive today and it's a sensible thing that DC updated his looks.

Like I like Tom and Jerry, if you seen some of the old ones there's plenty of what today is considered racist. Such as black face and Mammy Two-Shoes, but I rather see the old uncut versions than the cleaned up ones. It spoils the artists original intent and value. But I wouldn't want any new T&J's to have blackface nor a non-updated Mammy.

Wow! Found while looking for a Tom and Jerry clip.

>>He was created in the 40's, it was the time of such behavior and it was okay then.>>

But it wasn't right. I interpret your point as saying history shouldn't view those cartoonists in a bad way because social mores said it was okay to disparage a whole race in your cartoons and comics.

That is like saying the "just because blacks were slaves and women couldn't vote in the 1800s, history shouldn't paint the rule makers and enforcers (who raped and beat slaves) in a bad light. because it was socially acceptable back then."

Also are you saying the tribes who force female circumcision on girls in Africa shouldn't be judged? Their social mores say it is okay to mutilate and possibly kill young women by performing this "surgery".

Then why were all those Nazis put on trial after WW2? Their country said it was "okay" to kill Jews at the time. (wait,I think I may be asking the wrong person about atrocities during the Holocaust)
They were tried because they were wrong, just like Eisner and the rest of the racist cartoonists were wrong on a smaller scale, and history should deem them and their work racist.

No, you misinterpret me, sir. I said it was okay back then and the racial outlook of the nation changed so Ebony White should have been changed. And that it made sense for DC to change Ebony White's look.

I didn't say it was wrong or right nor that it wasn't racist, just that it was and it was acceptable. Such as I point out that in the modern T&J they shouldn't be any black face or a non-updated mammy.

Nazis? Female circumcisionists? Slavery? Why involved them? I'm talking about artistic interpretation based on social outlook.

If TMafia doesn't nip this in the bud, I'm leaving to do my laundry again.

Being 1/2 Jewish (McTrekstein?)

I'll try and be thrifty with my words here.

Recently I was informed about "Der ewige Jude" (1940)

It's horribly racist. It was produced by Nazis to foment fear and mistrust of all Jews.

It's disgusting, and anethema to all that is right and decent.

But It should be seen and discussed. It was the Germans at the time that were bad.

We can view racist works and say "it was the times" as long as we accompany it with: "Those times were simply contrary to human nature"

Except, given recent genocides/atrocities in Africa and god knows where else - it really doesn't seem so contrary.

Now I want to drop this and listen to the podcast, where I'm sure a hate crime on Batman is about to be committed.

Wasn't that Bruce Rosenberger in Der ewige Jude?

Okay, I was the one who told Trekkie he had to watch "The Eternal Jew" (the title's just not as funny somehow in German) 'cause I was amused (impressed?) by the shameless audacity of it. In fact, it reminds me of some of the equally crazy (and unintentionally hilarious) Christian propaganda films out there. And yes, I know that Hitler was a Jesus junkie himself. Moustache boy had all kinds of issues.

And I myself encourage any discussion like this that makes Trekkie leave and go do his laundry; I just hope someone did actually listen to the latest episode...? After all, if anyone's even more evil than Hitler (and Tony Stark), it's gotta be friggin' Batman.

Oh Illegal Batman, why are you not an on-going series?

Great googly moogly. I just tried on my proto-type/calico version of the Star Trek uniform.
I might have to make the hem sit a little lower. Why did they have to add splits as well?!

Where the hell am I supposed to get a phaser, tricorder and communicator?
I made the badges, but I don't think I could make those.

Actually my mobile looks alot like a communicator. Probably a quarter of the size though.

I agree. Get that boring motherfucker out of here.

Blogger T Mafia said...

Y'know Tim, I really gotta get you and Trekkie on the same episode sometime just to see how that would turn out.

Oh Illegal Batman, why are you not an on-going series?

Probably because the cartoonist knew he could be getting into enough legal trouble already with DC just from putting out this one-shot.

I might have to make the hem sit a little lower.

Then again, there's a reason the girls with the shortest skirts on the old show got the most camera time...

Just getting the sleeves on now. I hate doing sleeves.

I was watching the episode Galileo seven with my brother and he was all like "I like the way that girl is sitting":

What's that she's holding? I hope Courtney hasn't invented some terrible device that'll force men to have to pay attention to bitches when they're trying to talk to us or something.

It's a camera. Which is something you apparently don't own.

Keith (of Quality Comics) told me today that he knows a girl that rooted Warren Ellis.
Apparently they had known each other for awhile on Facebook. Eventually he started sending her previews of his work.
Then they both happened to be in London at the same time and they had a three way with Alan Moore.

...Okay maybe the Alan Moore part was added in.

Either way I found it kind of interesting. She's about 27.

Why, you want to have sex with the girl who had sex with Warren Ellis? Cool. Two degrees of spermination.

Blogger T Mafia said...

Xantes, how dare you suggest Courtney have hours of hot lesbian sex with that other chick and film it for the entire Internet to watch! (And before you deny saying that, can you honestly tell me that's something you wouldn't wanna see?)

If the Alan Moore part was for real, he would've sacrificed that girl to Glycon afterwards and kept the whole matter hushed up.

"Rooted"?! What does it say that Aussies apparently have more words for sex than Eskimos have for snow?

And in other news in Australia...
Kyle Sanderlan from a breakfast radio show has caused controversy and may even lose his job. Why? Because they got two listeners on the show, a fourteen-year-old girl and her mother to ask a few questions on a lie detector test.

One of the questions was "have you ever had sex?" To which the girl confessed to have been raped.
Kyle then asks "is that the only experience you've ever had?"

I like the guy, he belongs on Podcast X. Fuck the PC, he speaks his mind.
Ha, PC, ironically close to PCX.

I keep thinking about Karl Urban at Supanova. I honestly regret not asking him to sleep with me.
I mean how hard was it? I had the changeroom keys right in my hand, I went up to ask him a few times, but chickened out.

And he was hitting on all the coplayer girls, so it seems likely that he would have been all for it.

Then I could tell the world I lost my virginity to McCoy.
But I didn't. Why?!

So there's the first regret of my young life.

On a completely unrelated note, Alora and I were talking about Trekkie today.
We found it odd that in one episode he said he likes anorexic women and then in a more recent one he said he liked girls with big boobs. Well you can't have both, that would look very odd.
Then again, the two episodes were months apart, his tastes could have changed.

August 04, 2009 7:50 AM  
Blogger XantesFire said...

Anorexic, big boobs? See Posh Spice.

Alora?

Kyle Sanderlan sounds like an amateur, he should have asked her more about the rape. Like was it a relative? Was it daddy? Has it occurred more than once? Is there video? Does she cut herself? Ever had an abortion? How about a date?

Hey, I never not said the whole internet.

In this Sanderlan guy's defense, "Is that the only experience you've ever had?" is exactly what I would have followed up with myself after the little tramp admitted that she lured an innocent guy into raping her in the first place. In fact, I don't even see how that (obvious!) question is somehow "wrong" or whatever.

Trekkie, like most Americans, has been programmed to only like bitches with giant, but totally fake boobs. Because there's nothing sexier than enormous, perfectly round ('cause that looks natural!) orbs that don't give to the touch at all when you're trying to feel a girl up and in fact, refuse to bounce up and down even slightly no matter how hard their owner is being fucked. Worse yet is the anorexic/big fake boobies combo that you pointed out, Xantes (and yeah, Posh Spice is probably the perfect example of that!)

Boring Motherfucker?

Well, I COULD be a no talent hack that couldn't enunciate his way out of a paper bag- but pointing that out would simply be mean.

Look Thoom- just enjoy your little Thoomcast with or without Tmafia and perhaps without being a dickhead. Do you think that's possible?

Keep in mind- While I was on Hiatus - my blog actiually pimped and linked to your podcast.

Why do you feel the need to attack me?

No sex lately?

Were you, perchance evicted while having sex?

Ever actually had sex?

With another person?

Grow the fuck up- and stop the name calling, etc.

Once again, this is becoming that site/cast that we all should despise.

I'm disappinted, Tim, but not surprised.

Trekkie, reading between the lines, I understand exactly what it is you're really asking for...so you'll be thrilled to know that several PCX episodes starring your hero Timmy THOOM are coming soon!

Also, congratulations to Tim on not only achieving his landmark 100th episode earlier today, but for his excellent choice of anniversary co-hosts.

No, it's not. I gotta be an asshole.

You've been insulted here before, by others, and you took it in stride. but when I do it it touches a nerve. Is it because I'm black? Fuck you, I say what I wanna say.

>>Well, I COULD be a no talent hack that couldn't enunciate his way out of a paper bag- but pointing that out would simply be mean.>>

So, I don't have any talent and you do have a talent...However, putting people to sleep five minutes into the shows that you guest host is not an admirable talent. I wouldn't brag about that too much.

>>No sex lately?Were you, perchance evicted while having sex?Ever actually had sex?With another person?Grow the fuck up- and stop the name calling, etc.>>

How is any of that mess you just wrote any different than the name calling I did you hypocrite? I don't feel shamed by your words because you are fucking spineless and I don't respect you.

PCX: The Classics Tour.

Now that they have Batman Incorporate that might not be a bad look, Batman in a business suit and mask, showing up at board meetings, stockholder parties, bridge openings, etc.

Have I mentioned Marshal Law: Kingdom of the Blind lately?

No wonder the Federation put women in short skirts.

I actually liked and miss Trekkie.
