He Takes Requests

Bon Jovi Records Version of "Stand by Me" for Iranian People

In further bizarro-culture news via Big Hollywood, heartwarming plays about Ronald Reagan and the pro-life movement aren't getting play in New York! Can you believe it?

“Reagan” is a one-man play that doesn’t portray the 40th president as a fascist. It’s by Lionel Chetwynd, whose scripts for television and film include “The Hanoi Hilton,” “Color of Justice,” “Kissinger and Nixon” and “DC 9/11: Time of Crisis.”

One man show?

This is an insult to Nancy!

It has always seemed a no-brainer to me that a positive telling of the Ronald Reagan story would be a hugely popular hit.

I'll give Big Ho this much: they do know their audience.

Ahhh. Fictional work. Poetic license. Requires suspension of disbelief.

"Entertainment" can be like that. But sometimes an author will just make too great a stretch...

Capcha seems to think I'm a dodu

And why no Chris Muir shows in Soho?

Eeeeeeeeeeek there are some weird scenes in the Bug-eyed Hollywood Goldmine when it's comments time for the Chris Muir fetish picture.

Allow me to reference Transformers & Chris Muir w/ this.

Note "zombie" in left background.

Word Verif. sez: "alame" No shit. Crippled, even.

"Ahhh. Fictional work. Poetic license. Requires suspension of disbelief."

Reagan's entire career was a series of fictions, so I can't see any problem with making up bullshit about him now that he's not around to do it himself.

Now some of you will say that "Confidence trickster believes his own amnesiac confabulations & is elevated to power by credulous crowd" is a worn-out dramatic trope. But give the scriptwriter a chance to do something new with it, sez I.

Lights come up. We see RR in rocking chair dozing. He snorts wakes up.
RR: Fine day in December before I marry you...
Sees audience
RR:How the heckination did you all get in here? Why are you looking at me?This is like them movies I was in 'cept it wasn't really me on the stage. Fooled me for a while until I tried to give me an orange.
Voices off: "Who we invadin' today Ronnie?"
RR: I do like a Grenadier orange
Voices off: "Right you are"

Oh we can't purge a fetus
Or some hellhound will eat us
As a sin it sits at number one
But try to plug a sinner
And you'll be in jail by dinner
Oh you can't shoot a doc with a gun

Nearly as scary as Bon Jovi is that large banner at the top of TV guide:

The LDS zombies are coming! The LDS zombies are coming!

Serio, I have a few trolling my site, and blogs I post at. They find out you're not LDS, or even baptick type,'re LAMANITE-meat, man. Sort of given "to be x'ed on Jubilee Day" or something on their genealogy tables, when the Nephites finally enact the great City of Stuckeys.
