You need to chill the fuck out. Ok so the joke was bound to offend someone but it's mildly offensive at best. The notion that "all wives hen peck" is a dumb and outdated generalisation but this woman, at least for me, seems to fit the stereotype.

I saw a rather shrill woman telling her husband saying "tell them about this, tell them about that", "that's not true", interrupting him when he talked and when she did say "let me speak" I 'd say it was purely for the benefit of the camera. This interview along with the earlier written piece do, in my opinion, present a woman with a high degree of control over her husband and probably driving this whole 'thing' with Randy going along for the ride.

But yeah you're right, I was somehow making light of domestic violence FFS


There are so very many layers of bull in what you've just written that I'd need heavy equipment to get through it. Although I'm capable of deconstructing it and demonstrating to you how, in those brief paragraphs, you have supported many evils that stem from entrenched patriarchy, I'm not going to waste my time.

Yeah. From the way she stares at him psychopathically while he is speaking. Compares herself to a Sri Lankan amputee. Talks over him in a way that if situations were reversed you would be ropeable, you are a sexist pig and full of shit.

She tells him what to say in a very disturbing way.

Ideally though, I'd like that best to not be good enough, particularly with respect to matters of race and gender. Especially in context of the discussion the board's been having recently.

And with that, another tune from Randy Quaid:

why do you think they've done ANYTHING wrong? because TMZ/lamestream media told you they were ka-razzy.

that's cool, but I think you're overboard on diagnosing a "stare" as "psychopathic" - I didn't feel disturbed at their interactions at all and I really think you've inadvertently been primed to see it that way.

Indeed. Quaid was invited to host the concert by a friend of mine, who took Randy and Evi for dinner at one point. He's a guy I trust, he's certainly no dummy, and he's only ever described the couple to me as charming and perfectly rational. The Quaids he describes aren't the Quaids I've been reading about.

EDIT: forget it. i never learn.

ri is for reading about neat theories on UFOs and occult curiosities. the tiresome '90s-style politics/causes are better left alone. there is nothing to be gained from deriding or otherwise engaging these narratives.

This piece from RadarOnline relies on a source it describes as "a Vancouver-based music critic". I've never heard of the fucker before, and being a Vancouver-based musician, you'd think I would have. Which means I suppose that either I'm getting old and out-of-it, or (more likely), RadarOnline is talking out of its arse.

Is Hugh still around? Would he make anything of the announcement of a remake of Total Recall, which is a film about a man named Quaid with implanted memories? This shit just got real!

Ha. I think I'm gonna sit that one out from now on. Every time I post something there, I feel like I'm inflicting pain on someone. Inadvertently of course. It's kind of an unpleasant sensation, so I'm just gonna shut up over there.

I was directing that at kool maudit who seems to want to discuss gender issues, racism and that sort of thing.
