Kanye walked out in the middle of the Timcast podcast last night, which is pretty childish if you ask me. I mean, how do you expect to become the leader of the free world if you can’t even handle tough questions? And Biden hid from reporters behind the Easter Bunny.

20 minutes into a 2 hour podcast and he and Fuentes and Milo bolted.
And the questions weren't even that tough...just push back on who the They was trying to hurt him. Tim used they to mean the media, Ye...well...we know.

I think it's important that we consider how fully-immersed mega-celebrities like Kanye West can become in smoke and mirrors, worlds of illusion.

If someone makes it THAT big in the entertainment industry, their rise to fame is going to be seized upon by vested interests, capitalizing on their stardom and appeal to the public and using it to great effect at opportune times (think: distraction, bolstering public support for something, etc.).

Kanye definitely went through a period of time where so much of his daily life was handled by assistants and interns, and when someone's access to news, social media, and information in general is so tightly controlled it becomes very easy to shape their worldview towards certain ends. Kanye has obviously been off the leash for a while now, and it's very apparent that he has an incredibly warped perspective on some things (remember that presidential run? ). But at the same time, that doesn't mean he's not right about some things... Food for thought

I was actually impressed with what he had to say about having handlers his entire life.

Wouldn't have minded hearing more before he bugged up.

What's the problem with Musk other than having too much money than he knows what to do with?

I got zero defense for Trump and Kanye.

It was a House Judiciary GOP (Republican) tweet.

They finally took it down, like an hour ago.

Is that the way this game works? I rattle off a couple more names of far left whackjobs than you can do the opposite of and I win the prize?

What are we, 3 years old?

What’s this talk about “teams”? Is Hunter Biden part of your “team” too? Or Mark Zuckerberg? Or John Fetterman?

Y’all really sure you wanna play this game?

Wow. Triggered much?

As I previously stated, I was merely repeating a tweet the HOUSE JUDICIARY GOP (aka the Republican Party) had tweeted some time ago, and had left up until today.

That was all.

Sorry it bothered you so much, I guess.

And by your own logic, I guess the House Judiciary GOP IS 3 years-old?

There is nothing actually intelligent about anything you ever have to say.

The only thing you've mastered is provocation without depth, and straw-grasping in order to make statements so as to appear that you are making cogent points. My experience is that people who have developed those strategies as second-nature-interactions are societies dregs - the life angry who have mastered nothing tangible or measurable beyond verbal-jitsu.

You are a nothing-burger. A weirdo on the TMNT forums playing a level of sophistication that greater society has clearly not awarded you with. You're a faker. A tourist. I've never once seen you weave together a truly cogent thought of depth using any level of quantum-computing to analyze a situation. Instead you are an early Atari barfing out Pong and I literally don't know anyone here on the boards who has a modicum of respect for you. Go back to your basement and wrap yourself in your Raphael blanket, boy. Given the personality and opinions you project here, it is very obvious to anyone with a brain-that-thinks and eyes-that-see that you have nothing of merit going on in the real world.

Ah.

You can't defend the message ("I like Hitler." - renowned Republican, Kanye West) so you decide to attack the messenger pointing out how utterly gross it is ("That's pretty freaking disgusting, yo." - Me).

That's fine, dude. Good for you.

I think you're maybe projecting at me a little? But I don't know you.

And nor do I want to.

"I literally don't know anyone here on the boards who has a modicum of respect for you."

Dude, I do not care what other people think. Or what YOU think other people think.

The only reason I've continued to pursue this little endeavor is simple:

I have received several messages from members here who have thanked me for speaking my mind (hi, y'all!). They're not comfortable with confrontation, or maybe they care about their reputation. Maybe something else. I don't know.

But what I do know is they've been incredibly kind and supportive. And I appreciate them.

So, go ahead and keep making your long-a$$ paragraphs of jumbled word-soup. "I've never once seen you weave together a truly cogent thought of depth using any level of quantum-computing to analyze a situation. Instead you are an early Atari barfing out Pong." I'm not even sure what you're trying to say here. When I first read it, I thought maybe you were having a stroke. Just a big, big bunch of random words strung together, trying to sound smart, and failing.

Sound + Fury = Nothing.

I did smile at the most coherent part of your attempt at putting me in my place though. The part where you said:

"You're a faker. A tourist."

I might suggest that it's you who are the faker here, sir. Considering you stole that line from David Fincher's 1999 classic film Fight Club. Edward Norton's character says it to Helena Bonham Carter's character. All of which was based on a book by a guy named Chuck Palahniuk. But I bet you probably wouldn't read the book. Because, you know.

Chuck's gay. Not that it should matter.

But it sure seems to with some of you around these parts. (Fun fact! I've lived my entire life never ONCE getting upset about straight people in TV and movies. It's nice. Some of you should try it. When you watch or see or read something about gay folks in some media... just choose not to consume that media. Easy peasy!).

So in conclusion Your Honor, if something comes up that seems important and relevant in the world, and it seems *conveniently* being ignored around these parts, I might go ahead and share it. If you're troubled by the message, well, then, you can just go ahead and ignore it. Or not!

Again... don't care.

And I would never, ever have a Raphael blanket. Donatello's been my favorite from the start. Weird that you'd choose the angry turtle in your little example. Wonder why your brain went there?

Anyway, thanks for reading gang. I am off to go have a lovely dinner with some wonderful people.

-Rob

PS - I would HAPPILY be considered one of "society's dregs" (which is how you
actually spell it), then whatever world you live in.

No.

I have no desire or positioning to defend Kanye West. See, this is my point about you - you are creating your own galvanizing confrontation with most of your posts. You are inventing your own enemies and assigning them a positional value.

You just did it again here with

But see you don't get it. I don't care about your message. I don't care about your positioning. I don't care to defend "Kanye West" whom I also don't care about in society's game at all. I only care that you are basically just an @$$hole.

That's it. Your entire position is in question - again - because you are flinging words in a positional argument without even knowing who your opponents or proponents are and then assigning word-value to that nothingness. Which then brings us back to exactly what I said about you right up there in post #51. If you aren't a child, you definitely have the developmental level of one who simply just learned how to argue. That's it.

The funny thing about 'lol just don't watch gay media' is that straight people always get blamed when such gay media failed. Bros was so bad even certain gay people didn't care to watch it, but somehow it's the straight peoples fault it failed.

Also, let's all try to watch our tempers and political nonsense. It's heavy banning season for people starting a political ruckus and no one honestly cares who the hell Trump had dinner with.

I was reading an NPR thread on Facebook after the Bros' box office dropped and the thread was literally littered with NPR readers going on about what kind of tragedy the box office was. Immediately followed up with posted reasons and excuses why they didn't pay to go and see it - I swear to God, posts like "this is ashame, this movie would've had my support but the local theater near me closed and I could go see it" and other nonsense like that.

I mean I can excuse the local theater being closed. No movie is worth driving over to the next town to see unless (insert your favorite Hollywood babe here) has a lengthy topless scene in it maybe. Or in this case, unless Jason Mamoa and Chris Hemsworth have a literal dick measuring contest on screen or something. The irony is, a lot of gay people I know told me the main character they got for Bros was nowhere hot enough to justify him being such a player.

But there were a lot of lazy ones that were like 'it shoulda just been on Netflix'. Naw, if you want a certain thing to be a success, you get off your ****ing ass, you whip out your wallet and you ****ing go buy a ticket.

Yeah I mean regardless of the excuse there is clearly a ton of hypocrisy going on when it comes to supporting these projects that 1,500 people across the internet are "demanding" when they appear to be an entire civilization.

I spoke to the Godmother tonight (Godmother: head of the Gay Mafia), and he said that the next time a movie about straight people, with straight leads, doing straight things and just going down to hetero town... the next time a movie like that bombs...

You can blame us.

Your straight story with straight characters and straight actors bombed because of the gays.

Our bad.

Sorry about that, y'all.

I'm also sorry that it seems so many of you took the "blame" that the movie laid at your feet even though it was pretty obvious that they were trying to defend their work, and it's poor box office showing, which I think is a perfectly normal thing to do regardless of who you sleep with.

There was... yuck. I don't even remember his name. But there was a guy, who entered this contest, right? And he "won," which I put in quotes, because he won on a technicality. The actual votes for the contest he lost.

By a lot.

So then he goes on this years long tirade. About how the votes were rigged, and how there was tampering in the voting process. He railed and railed against everyone. Over and over again. For YEARS.

Then, get this! Dude enters the contest AGAIN.

This time he loses! Both technically, and actually!

And here's the thing. He's STILL out there blaming everyone but himself.

The makers of "Bros" defense was natural. They thought they did a good job, the world didn't agree, and they were upset about it. I'm also willing to wager (because we're clever like this) that they realized ANY publicity they could get for the movie would at least sell a few more tickets.

So, any story they could get in the press, they did.

And I bet I could count on one hand all the straight folks who took the claim that it was their fault (how thin skinned can you be?) personally.

And I bet they're all on this very message board.
