commented on What Is Your Favorite Fake Movie Band?
The Sleaze Sisters! I can't believe no one else named them!!!
"Times Square" is one of those changed-my-life kind of films. Those girls fucking ruled.
I also loved "Streets of Fire" around the same time, but I can't believe how awful Ellen Aims and the Attackers are when I watch it today.
Also: the Fabulous Stains and the Soggy Bottom Boys
commented on "Five cops go drinking and shoot at a middle class black couple—whatever."
We've become a country that justifies killing teenagers because of alleged shoplifting and pot smoking. Only the 2nd Amendment matters. Cops killing children, teens and adults mean nothing, because our citizens are so used to state-sanctioned executions. How do we change this? End capital punishment, for a start. We can't debate the morality of trigger-happy cops while the state is torturing prisoners (some of whom we now know to be innocent) to death.
commented on Frustrated By KUOW?
I was wondering what happened to KUOW over the last year or so! I used to listen all the time and it is always national or international news now, or internet-ey style news, which I hate. What a shame. I'm a subscriber, but I hardly listen to it at all anymore.
