Dec 21, 2016 Bauhaus I commented on Fuck The Nutcracker: Why You Should Go See Every Ballet But This One.
First of all I want to say that I would never force a son or daughter into dance unless there was real interest in it, and then I wouldn't have to force anything. I don't know if you begrudge your ballet training, but you shouldn't . It trains the muscles to move with a certain and unmistakable grace (if you are in it long enough) for a lifetime. I can spot an adult former ballet student from 100 yards away.
Dec 12, 2016 Bauhaus I commented on Moonlight Winning Big Awards and Nominations. Will the Oscars Follow Suit?.
Birth of a Nation (2016) failed for a couple of reasons...and failed movies very rarely make it to the red carpet. The Oscars are voted on by industry people, after all. Nobody wants to celebrate a financial bloodbath.

I think people stayed away from the movie for the same reasons they stay away from Woody Allen's films. Whether it is justified or not, there is some righteous indignation going on. Furthermore, I think going with that title was commercial suicide. It carries too much negative baggage. Even today, people are reluctant to see Griffith's original. Maybe it's white guilt. Can't say for certain, but even as a serious student of film, some sequences get me squirming. So to associate one's new film with that is, I'm thinking, not a good idea.
Dec 12, 2016 Bauhaus I commented on Congressional Leaders, aka Republicans, Call for Investigation Into Russian Hacking.
The Republicans will circle the wagons as they always do. Mitch McConnell as the voice of moral, ethical justice? Please. And little Paulie Ryan will only do what Atlas Shrugged tells him to do. Funny how someone, whose family once depended upon public assistance, can have such a hard-on for keeping it from other people in need.
Dec 12, 2016 Bauhaus I commented on Trump Names Walter White Head of DEA on This Week's SNL.
Still not in the mood to laugh about it, although I dug the satire. Really, more and more of my sense-of-humor wanes as January 20th approaches.
Dec 6, 2016 Bauhaus I commented on How Trump Turned Christmas Films into Horror Films.
Wow, Cholly. I'm bitter, too. I'm bitter because I probably have only a few more years to live, and I'm going to have to spend them under a Trump administration with a Trump-appointed Supreme Court majority-making justice. Christmas should be my oasis, but it won't be.
Dec 5, 2016 Bauhaus I commented on The Morning News: Housing Crisis Helped Cause Deadly Fire in Oakland, Studios Still Affordable in Tacoma, Video of Women March.
I adore Seattle - or at least I adored what it once was, but I think I probably could be happy living in Tacoma, especially with its lower cost of living. $550-a-month is so much sweeter than $1450-a-month. You start feeling like you are signing your paycheck over to the landlord. But I see no point at all in moving to Tacoma and having to come back up to Seattle to work every day. That's too long a commute, even in a car, even in a dedicated train. Believe me, I've had very long commutes and very short commutes and short commutes win hands down. You have all that extra time to enjoy what you are working for.
Nov 15, 2016 Bauhaus I commented on Kshama Sawant and the Socialist Alternative Should Not Lead the Anti-Trump Protests.
One of the best things you've written, Cholly, and I couldn't agree more. I hope I'm, I hope I am dead wrong, but I see at best, uninspired, at worst, very sad times ahead.
Nov 5, 2016 Bauhaus I commented on How the NRA and Other Right-Wing Groups Bought Influence with Our Republican Secretary of State, Kim Wyman.
Oh, shit....there's way more involved than campaign donations and luxury weekend getaways here. This is EXACTLY how politicians go to a capitol city poor as church mice and come back home after their tenure multi-multi-millionaires. Yeah, after her time in office the NRA or some similar group will give her some title and pay her a promised salary for showing up once a month, doing her nails for a couple of hours, and then, off she'll go to the next "job."
Nov 3, 2016 Bauhaus I commented on Beyoncé Performs at the CMA Awards, Upsets Genre Boundaries and Also Racists.
Yeah, I bet a lot of chew tabakky missed its spittoon.
Nov 2, 2016 Bauhaus I commented on Nate Silver Is Here To Ruin Your Morning.
Here's what I do with this information: I get my paperwork in order and apply for a Dan Savage Foundation grant so that I can afford to move back to Vancouver.
