CelebWatch: I am a Braver Heart than Mel Gibson

Mad Max Mad-Max-5 MPW-16798

Mad Max was the opener flick on a double bill with Outlander Sean Connery’s High Noon in Space. A mining moon of Jupiter….

In North America, it was feared that people wouldn’t understand the Australian Accent, so there was another voice dubbed and I swear it was Lyle Wagoner from the Carol Burnett Show.

In the summer of 1985, my younger sister and I were chamermaiding outside of Banff and we talked the ticket clerk into letting us sit through both showing of the Thunderdome movie, because we were bored and there was air conditioning.

What convinced her was saying, “Oh, we’re from Vancouver, BC, they let you do that all the time.”

 

“The same movie?” she asked incredulous…

“Yup.” we nodded muttered assurance…. then.. the clincher:

“We promise to buy snacks each showing.”

 

Sold.

Where the theatre makes it’s money. the ticket sales go to the distribution company. or it did in the day.

Why I stopped liking Mel Gibson.

 

I found out he wasn’t Australian. He was American and his family left America when he was 12. His holocaust denier very Irish Catholic father supported the family by appearing on game shows.

Mrs Soffel

When he was filming his hollywood debut Leading Man actor roles, he trashed the house in Toronto which was rented for him by the production company.

Without any permits or permission from anyone, he knocked holes in the walls to put in a sauna room, causing massive steam, mold, electrical and other problems for the home owner.

I remember seeing him, shortly after I came out in the 1990s on a daytime talk show.

He stood up, turned his Lethal Weapon ass to the audience and camera to much screams and applause and shouted “This is for shitting, not sex.”

Then it was the drunk driving Jewish bashing incident with the Sugar Tits to the Woman Police Office left uncommented upon.

More recently, there was the “incidents” with his last media known girlfriend.

 

I vaugely recall he had 12 kids with his first catholic wife.

Playing Jesus tends to be an actor curse as all before and up to Willem Dafoe discovered.

 

PassionoftheChrist

Mel’s pet project. a movie version of the middle ages passion plays, the point of which is to stir up hatred of Jews.

Funny how they miss the message that Jesus was to be the last sacrifice, so stop oppressing other people.

 

Gibson’s Passion of the Christ was such Torture Porn that this movie delivered what no other horror movie could: a body count.

Evidence of Violence from a Late Black Death Cemetery

Originally posted on Bones Don't Lie:

Plague Doctor via Wikimedia Commons Plague Doctor via Wikimedia Commons

When we study history, we tend to focus on the big events. This is especially true for medieval England where history is defined by wars, plagues, famines, and major changes in political structures. Archaeology provides an important counterpoint to this perception of history as defined by big events and big names. It can give us a glimpse into daily life at different social levels, how those who lived in this period may have experienced these events, and how they effected the actual people. Events like the Black Death may have changed the world forever, but to those who were living in that period and experiencing it, life still went on. A new study by Krakowka (2015) looks more closely at the behaviors occurring between the living during a period of plague, war and famine.

Krakowka (2015) argues that the degree of violence one finds in…

Random Ntrygg: Breakfast at Tiffany’s

In my 20s, I worked in 2 video rental stores on Scott Road on the Delta Side of 120th Street.

One was The franchised Video Station and the other was a business owner who ran a few video stores, the Esso/Service Station and the Tiffany’s Adult Video store.

It had been located in the Kennedy Heights shopping centre on the cool side below Commuter Route into Richmond, New West and into Vancouver eh?

Tiffany’s had been located in two locations in the mall. After a robbery/fire, it took over where the Wool and Grannie Crafts store had been.

I worked at Tiffany’s in both locations.

I recently saw a trending story and I had a bit of a laugh.

You see, when I worked there last as the manager – there was a conflict with another store The East-West Plumbing.

Now, it was not like when I worked on Pine Street near Burrard at the Vancouver Women’s Health Collective.

Where, we had it written in our leases to leave other tenants alone. So imagine this building.

Third Floor was a Right to Lifer Anti-Abortion Group who offered a small range of charity services like household and clothing items in order to give you an anti-abortion lecture.

The Second Floor was the Vancouver Women’s Health Collective and we sub-let to a number of midwives and Councillors to support our main business line – the crisis centre and the health information resource centre.

The first floor from the street was the lobby to the two upstairs or the 1 creaky elevator and the stairs down to the below ground. which had front door style access to the elevator lobby off the back of the building parking lot.

A Massage Parlour front for sex work.

Now. the problem with the East-West Plumbing staff and the Porno Rental Shop staff was not their religious objection to the shared two door down location.

It was their male staff coming into the store, making disgusting comments about the videos – causing our client to sometimes leave

and then harrassing the female staff as if we were sex workers, although, I was always assumed to be the madam

So I had to frequently explain, my job was to rent you the video and whatever job or whack they wanted was down to them, not me.

The owner of the store did not deal with my repeated complaints.

So, what I did was to take my sister’s metal baseball bat to work.

I think there was an oscar winning inspirational teacher/administrator movie at the time…

Anyway I walked into the plumbing store and calmly waited for the manager to notice me.

He was talking to a customer and I didn’t want to interfere in his business, but the baseball bat was bothering him. So he asked his customer so step aside.

I asked her if it was okay and now she was really curious.

So I put the baseball bat down very calmly on the glass and chrome counter.

then I stepped back and put my hands in my pockets.

“I really like the glass shelves you have in your store. I am the manager from the Porno Shop. I would like to talk to you about your staff sexually harrassing my staff and bothering my customers. Is this a good time for you?”

his eye never left the bat.

“Because I can come back with my bat another time, unless you can assure me right now. that I won’t have to because you will talk to your staff.”

He looked up then. His face much paler than mine.

“No. You won’t have to come again.”

“Thank you.” I said.

I stepped forward and picked up the bat and carried it, Avenger Style

_149733_uma_thurman_and_ralph_fiennes_in_avengers_150_ex_warners

back to the parking lot to the trunk of my Dad’s Buick Century beige road tank.

Oh right.. you know. I can’t think of a more boring thing.

Gay porn. if only people knew how boring porn is.

Boogie Nights had it right.
