Aug 15, 2013 WenWino commented on Do You Think the Olinguito Is Cute?.
Scientists spend years pouring over old skeletons and DNA and actually trekking to the jungle to discover a new mammal species, and all it boils down to is if some puffed pastry chair moistener in Seattle cares if it's cute or not or if it's being "marketed" to us? Jesus, go outside (of the city) every once in a while...
Jul 24, 2013 WenWino commented on Why Do We Consider Salons to Be Pretentious?.
Salons work if you have the right group of people together, which is a pretty tall order. The good thing is that people who shouldn't be in a salon are readily weeded out because they knee-jerk dismiss them as pretentious, stupid, or post things like "Fuck salons". Those people are more interested in winning arguments than exploring ideas, and they also make up 95% of people who spend their time arguing with strangers in comment threads. Fuck comment threads.

Oh wait, he co-wrote it the movie. I'm dumb.

Unless he negotiated some sort of unheard of deal where he gets points on the take, the money already went into his pocket when the studio optioned the book rights. Dumb.

So the end justifies the means? Well, let's see how it all plays out...

Actually, let me articulate better than I have so far.

Why didn't the Mariners fly the flag at their last home game? Or a week ago? Or a month ago? Or even 5 years ago? They want to ride the cultural/political wave of what's hot this week to make money.

Is it admirable that they are celebrating this awesome historic moment? Of course. It's also the least risky business move they could make.

But don't elevate/reward them by paying for overpriced garlic fry haystacks/beer like they're some trendsetting heroes.

Empty fucking marketing gesture to fill seats this weekend.

Just one more:

I love the whole "fair weather fan" reverse-a-roo aspect of this thread. The MARINERS ORGANIZATION is only down with your values if it's marketable. Families Yes! Homos No! Oh, no families? Homos it is!

(Spoiler alert: the three card monty ball is under Cap # 2).

They'll kick out a lesbian couple for smooching because they want to be "family friendly", but when nobody is showing up for their sub-par product they'll ride the cultural flavor of the week to try and get people to show?

Tell me who wins the "hydro race"....
