Hollywood's favorite monster

Granted, Mia Farrow is more than a bit of a nutcase. But given his confirmed behavior, there isn't much reason to doubt the allegations that Woody Allen is a child molester are true:
Frank and Mia stayed close, however, even when she was married to the composer-conductor André Previn, whom she divorced in 1979, after having three sons and adopting three at-risk Asian daughters. She also continued to see Sinatra throughout her 13-year relationship with Woody Allen, which suffered a jolt when she found lurid photographs taken by Allen of Soon-Yi Previn, one of her adopted daughters, then a sophomore in college, on the mantel in Allen’s Manhattan apartment. Only a month earlier, in December 1991, Allen had formally adopted two of Mia’s children, 15-year-old Moses and 7-year-old Dylan, even though he was in therapy for inappropriate behavior toward Dylan. In August 1992, after disappearing with Allen in Mia’s Connecticut country house and reappearing without underpants, Dylan told her mother that Allen had stuck his finger up her vagina and kissed her all over in the attic, charges Allen has always vociferously denied.
Ronan Farrow adds on Twitter: "Missed the Woody Allen tribute - did they put the part where a woman publicly confirmed he molested her at age 7 before or after Annie Hall?"

Woody Allen isn't funny. He's grotesque. He's ugly. He's a whiny little sexually obsessed monster. His films are tedious, unimaginative, and narcissistic. And he's a child molester. The fact that Hollywood sees in him a man worthy of receiving its tribute tells you all you need to know about that depraved Gomorrah.

Every now and then, I'm asked if I'm interested in optioning the film rights to my books, sometimes even by people with actual film credits. My answer is always no. Not merely no, but HELL NO! I want nothing to do with Hollywood. It's not an accident or coincidence that Hollywood so often takes pure storytelling gold and turns it into filth. They are the anti-Rumplestiltskins. They love rolling in filth.

the worst part, Woody Allen isn't even CLOSE to the worst one in Hollywood. I've heard far more terrible stories regarding Ryan O'Neal, Kirk Douglas and Steven Seagal (he might be the worst and I just thought it'd be funny to list him with two Oscar nominee/honorees). Sure not all of Hollywood is bad but they cover up enough filth for me to have no respect for the institution at all.

Totally agree with your point about Woody Allen. I liked his very early movies, but his later ones not so much.

I just wish that Corey Feldman had the guts to come out and say what is really on his mind. He has tried a couple of times, but then he gets afraid.

Hollywood is trash. It also has outsized influence in Washington DC. Until VD pointed it out, I had never realized how small movies were.

Almost universally, when you go abroad, and are told how ugly Americans are, it comes from one of two directions:

1. The person is politically aware, and understands that US foreign policy is sharply at odds with what it says it's values are. "Ugly American" has some merit here.

2. The person is not politically aware, and has formed the opinion based on our mass media that we export. Our music, movies, TV and other culture is just terrible. What must a person think of the US if all they know is a few bits from school, Vietnam, Iraq and Breaking Bad? When some muslim nutjob talks about the decadent US you just know caught an episode of Honey Boo Boo or Real Housewives of Buffalo or whatever.

Beyond helping to destroy us overseas,Hollywood has nearly tanked the entire productive economy on several occasions. For one, their perversion of copyright law has slowed the development of culture to the point where it is locked up from the commons for nearly a 100 years. Second, in order to protect their "property" they have nearly broken every digital device with sure to fail watermarking technology.

I predict that a very large media company - perhaps Apple or perhaps Google, or maybe a joint-venture, will simply buy up the entire catalog of the major movie and TV producers for a one-time lump sum. The hysterics they go to to license their C-roll made-for-tv movies and B-list catalog is just silly.

I was visiting my Mother a few years ago and she was watching some god-awful thing called "The Talk" I think. A bunch of women sitting around a table discussing "stuff."

The reason I remember it was that they were discussing how horrible some child molester was (I forget who they were talking about) followed, immediately after that discussion, with talk about what a great guy Michael Jackson was.

The cognitive dissonance was strong in them.

Allen was in the house with a 7-year old, with the complicity of the child's mother, Mia Farrow. Allen was in therapy for 'inappropriate behavior with the 7-year-old' while he SHARED A HOUSE WITH FARROW AND THE CHILDREN.
So, there's two scumbags here. The pedophile, and the she-pimp playing the victim card who kept the 7-year old available for her meal ticket's enjoyment.

I don't know much about the adoption process, but it always struck me as strange and troubling that Hollywood celebrities seem to have no difficulty adopting children by the dozen while normal couples have to spend ages jumping through bureaucratic hoops just to adopt one.

I dunno, maybe it's because of income. Still troubling, though.

Blogger El Borak January 13, 2014 11:07 AM  

normal couples have to spend ages jumping through bureaucratic hoops just to adopt one.

It all depends upon where you adopt them from. If you adopt children from other countries, the 'hoops' are generally rectangular and have pictures of Ben Franklin on them. Celebrities don't have much problem with those. If you adopt in America and the kid is not in state custody (e.g. parents are deceased or in agreement with adoption), there are not many hoops, just some paperwork to do and a few lawyers to pay.

It's when you want to adopt kids that are in state custody (e.g. foster kids) that the process becomes hairy. I can't but think that a lot of that runaround and delay is caused by people who make money off of kids remaining in state custody.

Certainly. However, the allegation was made by his nominal son. Who was repeating the allegation made by his sister. And the charge about him having been in therapy for previously inappropriate behavior with the girl is falsifiable and I am not aware of Allen denying it.

And then we are aware of how he was behaving with his quasi-step daughter as well. Mia Farrow is indubitably a fruitcake, but there is a tremendous amount of smoke billowing out the windows as well as the occasional lick of flame. It's pretty safe to conclude there is probably a fire there.

He’s scared. He hates himself, and he loves himself, a very tense situation. It’s people like me who have to carry on and pretend to be modest. To me, it’s the most embarrassing thing in the world—a man who presents himself at his worst to get laughs, in order to free himself from his hang-ups.

Since guns are never off topic, I'll let you know Nate that I concur with your opinion on Glocks. Just took my boy to a gun show again this Sunday while all the San Fran homos were busy at home watching their men in tight uniforms play football.

I don't know how they shoot (it's been more than a decade since I shot a Glock), but really didn't like their feel. Liked several Rugers, H&K were okay but not great, was surprised that I liked the feel of the Kahr.

Couldn't find any Steyr in the booths I visited, but then I was really there to get stuff for my rifle and only visited 5 handgun sellers.

Question, is it only a typically stupid California law that someone under 21 cannot pick up a gun at a gun show, or is this a federal law? Of course, you can pick one up and hand it to them, they just can't pick it up themselves. On the other hand, perhaps it is a sneakily smart law in preventing a genuinely stupid law being passed such as banning children from gun shows.

True. In the grand scheme of things shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Will & Grace did more to engineer the sharp shift in public opinion on gay issues than ten thousand harangues by the likes of GLAAD. Gay stuff is only one tiny slice of the culture war pie, but it's just a fact that for all our talk, Christians never actually engaged in the culture war at all. Every once in a while there'd be some awful piece of often dangerous treacle or didacticism like Left Behind or Fireproof, but they rarely managed to rise to the level of "not actively harmful", much less to actually be noticed by the wider culture.

Just about the only real shot that's been fired by our side in the last decade is friggin' Duck Dynasty. Hence, the vicious counterattack.

Just dont let his wife get her hands on the script, or ... well, you've seen her 'work', no doubt.

I can see the adaptation now. Fortex is executed for being gay, Marcus is saved by the arrival of an ass-kicking Warriorette named Vaginex, and there are several 20 minute chase scenes with Lodi running away from orcs and wearwolves, with him inventing snow boarding in one chase and waterskiing (having lassoed a fleeing bison on shore) in another.

But the props they'd make for the film would be awesome.

The last movie I saw in a theater was about a plane wreck in the Andes in which the survivors ate each other.

Mmm. The Uruguayan rugby team. Happened about 100 miles from here. Locally, we still refer to cannibalism as "Uruguayan barbecue".

Hollywood also displayed some remarkable ignorance toward Nelson Mandella during the award show last night. I doubt anyone in that ball-room of modern-day court jesters has even heard of the ANC's necklacing. Sickening group of creatures.

" was surprised that I liked the feel of the Kahr. "

Thanks for a gun post, this thread is heading down a long gay hill with umbrella drinks at the bottom.

Yeah, I was also surprised by how comfortable the Kahr was in my hands last time I was at Cabelas. Still haven't shot one.

The new Glock single stack .45 feels different, not sure if I like it or not. Haven't shot one of those either.

I really don't want to buy another handgun without shooting one beforehand. I've gone through 3 that way. Still have my Hi-Power, it is awesome, but bulky to carry.

You're in good company: Michael Crichton's interviews about Hollywood (before his untimely death) were classics on the subject of how incandescently stupid Hollywood is.

As for Woody, Hollywood needs someone to fill the shoes of Roman Polanski.

If your hands are big enough, try the CZ97B. It's terribly nice. Heavy steel which helps keep recoil down as well as provides a nice club when you're done shooting your 2x10rd mags +1, and it eats Wolf 230gr like candy like a good proletarian gun should.

So nice, I'm actually thinking of picking up the CZ75 SP-01, which is CZ's full-size metal 9mm.

I can honestly say I've only seen one Allen movie I enjoyed: What's up Tiger Lily?
Everything else, if it's on TV and everyone else is watching it, I look for something to read and ignore it.
Like Vox said, with what became public about Soon-Yi (like most, I suspect the 'affair' began well before she was 18 and while biologically not incest it still had a high creep factor)
As others have noted, it's another reason Jews are not seen in the best of light these days.
I can't say that I liked how Edison tried to control motion pictures in the early days (not unlike how Apple has ''a walled garden'' for iDork hard/software) that Jews muscled control of motion pictures away, built Hollywood as a film base and then used their clannishness to screw (both figuratively and literally) any and everyone that wasn't part of their clique (AKA 'the chosen') and to use the media to project their leftist to outright communist POV.
Elsewhere I was discussing the Maryl Streep allegation that Walt Disney was sensible (oops, I mean ''racist'' and ''anti-semitic'') at that time all I knew was the story about how he was jewed out of the rights (and nearly his whole animation staff) to Oswald the Lucky Rabbit by Universal head Carl Laemmle.
After that it's hardly any surprise that Walt disliked Jews and hated doing business with them.
He was also quite aware of both their strong pervert tendencies and their sympathy (if not outright passion) to communism.
Note what the name ''Disney'' meant prior to the mid-80's (when the Disney family maintained control) and since then (when control was jewed away from the family) ask yourself; ''Would Walt have wanted anything to do with the Cyrus family (or Lohan, or Spears, ect. ect.)?''

Funnily enough visiting US even for a short while tends to change the America = a-hole stereotype, into most of these blokes are pretty decent, in fact more decent than many others. Also in your case you must remember that >90% of the worlds' population will not visit the US.

Well, if I remember rightly, Walt gave Tommy Kirk the boot after Kirk was caught "dating" a teenaged boy. So there's that.

Glocks just don't feel real to me. Like holding a squirt gun or something. I grew up shooting 1911's, and have never really switched to anything else.

Steyr's are nice. My bride had one for a while till she bought a Berretta.

JCclimber: "Question, is it only a typically stupid California law that someone under 21 cannot pick up a gun at a gun show, or is this a federal law? Of course, you can pick one up and hand it to them, they just can't pick it up themselves."

Possibly both, depending on whether the seller was federally licensed or not, plus your son's age. It's probably related to the legal concept of a "transfer", which both Federal and State laws affect. Even letting your child hold your own gun is a "transfer", albeit (usually) legal. By handing the gun to you, then you handing it to your child, the dealer gets around the direct transfer to a child which he may be prohibited from doing.

But IANAL, so this is only conjecture.

YIH: "As others have noted, it's another reason Jews are not seen in the best of light these days."

As far as I'm aware, in America Jews are only becoming ever more popular (as well as wealthier and more powerful in every way), decade by decade.

THE MOST POPULAR RELIGION IN AMERICA IS????

Globally the picture is more complicated. Jews are not growing more and more popular with Arabs in Arab countries.

Even overseas there is balm though. Hollywood and a hostile political class is turning America (and, more slowly, all other white countries) into a combination of Sodom, Gomorrah and some dystopia of moral filth for which no religions scriptures offer any precedent. Hollywood blames this all on Americans - meaning white, gentile Americans - and as other people noted earlier in the thread, everybody seems to buy this.

Self-hating whites become comically fanatical and fanatically comic about the evil and contemptible character of white, gentile Americans.

That means (white, gentile) Americans are less and less legitimate candidates to lead, assert collective rights within, or even exist within American society (or any other society). So Jewish authority is more legitimate and secure than Jewish popularity, influence, media domination, academic legitimacy, wealth, mobilized and institutionalized ethnic cohesiveness, part-Jewish and non-Jewish elite support and Christian Zionist religious support would lead you to think. It's also legitimate because a plausible alternative would be seen as morally repugnant and unacceptable to many people. (This is the same sort of advantage as a politician has, when not only does he have great polling numbers against "a generic opponent" of the other party, but all the actual possible opponents are wildly hated.)

The self-declared neutral news radio station (strong leftish bent, but better than almost all other San Francisco stations) yesterday was discussing the news about Iran's new deal to partially lift sanctions.

They immediately followed with commentary about a number of US Congressmen worried about how this affects Israel.

Not about how it affects:
the ability of Iran to pull a North Korea and use a deal with a Democratic president to develop and build a nuclear bomb.
The impact on the Iranian poor people.
The impact on Iraq.
The impact on Saudi Arabia.
The impact with Russia, France, Germany, Turkey (major trading partners of Iran)

Journalists really are mid-wits.
