I didn't know Loyd and Troma were involved with My Dinner With Anre~

Where I really fucked up with that story is that it was Jean Claude Van Damme and not Stevie who was the douche in question. I really can't tell movie critters apart. Apologies for portraying Steezie as more of a try-hard than he really is.

The Sonny Bono Mickey Mouse Protection Act runs out in a year. So, another thing to track in the middle of this year's circus. It's likely another extension will try to sneak in under the radar.

They won't extend it again. I think we're going to let it go to court later on, where Disney will win de facto permanent copyright protection using other grounds. Depending on how they go about it, they may be able to secure permanent copyright protections for almost every extremely large media corporation and almost all their IP, but that's a longshot, or is it?

Disney is more "in charge" of this country than any President. Whatever they want copyright laws to be is what they will be.

There are few human beings alive who deserve that particular apology less that Steven Segal does.

Jean Claude Van Damme is a complicated dude who was struggling with undiagnosed bipolar disorder that he was self-medicating with serious cocaine & alcohol addictions. He is painfully self-aware of his flaws and got back together with an ex-wife, turned to the church and worked to turn his life around.

Steven Segal is outright delusional, but also a terrible human being in almost every facet of his life. He is a pathological liar, raging narcissist, Putin apologist, probable rapist, and worst of all the man is lazy AF.

JCVD, coke-addled hero we can all believe in:

Steven Segal, who quite literally never attempted a stunt this intense again:

Yes, that slide is completely serious.
Watch this rather hilarious video of the various bizarre ethnicities and personae Segal has attempted to portray himself as IRL, and you will never confuse the two again:

Yeah, I was saying it was ridiculous of me to think he'd go to the effort of standing on a boat.

God, I love Will Sasso's interpretation of the man. Sasso could be funny just by walking without moving his arms. So underrated.

I will always respect the sheer athleticism Van Damme displayed in Kickboxer.

As luck would have it I stumbled upon this video earlier today; long story short, yeah, they have a plan very much in motion.

Indeed. There's a few ways to go at it. I agree with the video and I was alluding to trademark. At the very least, the mouse is so closely recognized and associated with Disney that they can win a "slam dunk" trademark case. Even I'd sit on a jury and hand them trademark protection. Same thing with Mario and Nintendo, the 20 Century Fox musical fanfare, or the THX sliding note. Some things get so closely associated with a brand that the trademark is difficult to argue.

----------

In other news, I'm already exhausted with the Rube Goldberg machine we construct around the deficit. There's a dead simple way to look at tax revenue. We can look at taxation as a percentage of GDP. No surprise that America's last GOP debt ceiling terrorist hostage situation happened in the middle of a serious dip in tax revenues--created by the GOP in 2011.

America has been debt free, but it was a Democrat that paid it. The debt was completely paid off and our surplus peaked in around 2000. No one should be surprised what paid the debt: tax money. No Republican president since Nixon has had a balanced budget--ever. That proves what Republicans are: complacent and/or thick morons, that let liars take advantage of them.

Not satisfied to maintain taxes near Ronald Reagan's chosen levels, today's GOP idiots demand draconian budget cuts and more tax cuts, despite the COVID crisis and the constant wars that have tugged at America's bottom line. It's insanity and ignorance, simultaneously demanding a return to record low taxes and demanding draconian domestic spending cuts; all the while, they beg for more cops to lock up dark people and more military hardware for Ukraine. It's fucking bonkers.

Anyhow, the tax receipts are easy to track and see:
https://data.worldbank.org/indicator/GC ... cations=US

Nobody mentions that it's easy to see. They create Rube Goldberg machines. The democrats want to negotiate and make more domestic cuts to satisfy their corporate masters. That's why the press doesn't tell you. They want to sell the crisis and keep fucking everyone over, too. That's why Manchin is being allowed to "negotiate". The fucking answer is dead simple: raise taxes. We can't afford it? The graph says we can--and we can cut taxes in the case of a surplus afterwards. It's exactly as easy and straightforward as it sounds. Unlike some third world shithole (yeah, I said something true, sue me), the United States doesn't have a debt that's too big to handle with tax revenue. Want to pay debts? Pay them.

I unfairly compared him to Artie Lange for a long time but honestly he's pretty funny. MADtv was always at least decent but never managed to recapture the magic of those first two seasons.

Not sure how much Disney even care about the OG Steamboat version of Mickey going public domain at this point (there's enough embarassing stuff from that era I can see them not wanting to draw attention to), but any of their modern stuff is gonna have a lot of money thrown at it when the time eventually comes.

I've just seen the late news breaking on another shooting in California. Under normal circumstances, this would be amusing: Google News has a FAQ section that is supposed to link some details of a particular story at a glance. Right now, readers will find information about the identity of yesterday's shooter in the story FAQ, not information about today's mass shooting. Not even Google can keep up with all gun executions that all Americans love, create, encourage, and 100% condone through their complacent consent. (Oh, I'm sorry. Did someone actually say you're accountable?)

America is fucking bonkers.

When can we start curbing gun production and sales? We have to eventually start pulling more guns from circulation than we add. This isn't going to get better on its own. This arms race isn't making anyone any safer.

Fuck those people's jobs, by the way. We've exported a lot of honest jobs over the years and nobody cared. Fuck gun jobs.

I read one article that described it, verbatim, as "one of America's latest mass shootings". Not "worst" or "deadliest" or the like, just "latest".

There's not really much any comedian can do to spoof Segal that's funnier than just slowing down the fights in his movies.

Haha Trump really did complain about a funeral being boring >_< The chapo boys are right, Ron Desuckass is a longshot.

Do you guys think Bush will pick up the phone like Obama before him did, and order a ratfuck voltron before Trump walks away with it? I dunno if these crabs in a bucket have gotten their act together yet; they just never had this problem before and might be structurally incapable of working together to get 100% of what the banks want.

Hey, remember "The Twitter Files?"

That big expose about how the old management at Twitter was removing and deprioritizing stories due to shady interactions with government officials, and how that's all over now that Elon's in charge?
