"but it usually seemed like they were trying to pack in as many jokes as they could and make sure every joke would play to the largest possible percentage of their viewers."

What an odd criticism of a show that's trying to entertain people.

I get your point -- lowest common denominator typically means low-grade humor -- but post-Joel didn't go all Tom Green. I invite you -- nay, I fucking DARE you -- to watch "Horror of Party Beach":

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TF8MIZwb8ws

Keep an eye open for a couple different "Spinal Tap" references, a "Waiting for Godot", a Jean-Paul Sartre riff, and even an appeal to Shelby Foote. I'm not saying it's Dennis Millerishly impenetrable just to prove they're smarter than everyone else, but neither is it all poop jokes (though there are a couple because why not).

I use Google to search for things here, always with the "site:poetv.com" parameter. But yeah, in this case it helped that I remembered that the car in question was the General Lee, and I searched for that.

I'm finding that "drunk dad canada site:poetv.com" gets me to the video pretty damn directly too.

Space Battleship Yamato (2010)
07/23/13, 16:59

Actually the original cartoon was smarter than the movie in some of those regards.

In the cartoon, one of the only two surviving people of Iscandar (also essentially human beings, but not Gamilons) flew to our solar system with plans for a wave motion engine, so that we could send a ship that would be capable of retrieving the massive anti-radiation machine. It was basically a Craigslist ad saying "Cosmo DNA on Iscandar, free if you provide transportation", plus plans for building an Urba Car.

Also in the cartoon, most of the experienced soldiers were already dead. Our hero with the long hair and his navigator buddy were a couple of lowly cadets, and in fact, almost the entire crew consisted of promising but untested young folks. I don't like that the movie made everyone veterans with tragic military histories, but I understand why they did that, because there wasn't time for anyone to ramp up. In the cartoon, though, their lack of experience is a thing -- for example, the first time they're trying to start the wave motion engine, it fails, because the navigator missed a step on his checklist.

And in a 1974 cartoon, you can expect that space fighter planes worked like WWII fighters -- you have to look around to see enemy fighters. Consider it a weakness of the cartoon that it wasn't "realistic" that way.
Space Battleship Yamato (2010)
07/23/13, 08:19

It could be nostalgia talking, but I much prefer the original cartoon, so I'd recommend starting there. It's on Hulu:

http://www.hulu.com/star-blazers

There's some bad and some good with it. The bad: a lot of crappy voice acting, and a tendency for women (well, THE woman) to be crying all the time. Plus there are some weak episodes. The good: the fact that it's a series means they can take their time to tell their story. Almost completely absent from the movie is the issue of crew morale, but it is a recurring theme on the show (even to the point where some of the crew mutinies at one point, spoilers). And we get to see enough of the Gamilas -- excuse me, Gamilons -- to know they're men who have made monstrous choices, rather than lizardy monsters who trigger an instinctive "kill it with fire" reaction. Speaking of which, the leader of the Gamilons, Desslok, is one of the better-written villains on TV.
Space Battleship Yamato (2010)

Pretty good, consistent enough with the original, a creditable job.

Okita's lie is a new wrinkle.

The one thing they got wrong is turning the Gamilas into faceless monsters. The original series was clear to a fault that the Gamilas are humans, or close enough to be our cousins at the very least. The problem with the Gamilas wasn't that they were monsters, the problem was that they were a people who bought into militarism and conquest.

There's always someone hurfing and blurfing about the Japanese trying to rewrite WWII so that they were the winners, but the original series was anything but. The use of the Yamato as a symbol of hope and not militarism is baffling to my American mind, granted, but everything else about the show is about placing mercy, humanity, and peace above war. And make no mistake, when the Gamilas were defeated in the cartoon -- as decisively as if a nuclear bomb had been dropped on them -- the show made the point that what happened to them was a horror and a tragedy, but it was one that they brought upon themselves. There is no Japanese viewer who could have missed the message there.

Dear Stalked Lady:

The truth is, we watch your material only when we run out of cat videos. I know the empathy part of your brain has a bug such that you can't imagine anyone NOT making you the center of their world, but if you actually want to be left alone by the Internet, you can get there simply by not posting videos.

If.
Chris Hedges is asked to give his thoughts on Christopher Hitchens
07/22/13, 16:51

"But it's not because Hitchens was arguing against a 'caricature' of religion, he represented religion pretty accurately in my opinion"

Okay, but bear in mind that Hitchens' atheism led him to siding with the US in its Middle Eastern wars, so he could strike a blow at Islam. And if meant killing a few hundred thousand innocent people, well, they were just Muslims, weren't they?

My point: whatever arguments Hitchens wanted to make about religion causing human misery, he proved in spades that an atheist can do just as well. So maybe religion isn't the problem so much as a willingness to dehumanize other people to get one's way.

Denis Leary stole the Asshole bit from Louie CK
07/21/13, 22:18

There are allegedly three bits Dane stole from Louis, but looking at them I say Dane is just fine. My take on it:

1) The "itchy asshole" thing: wait, are itchy assholes an experience unique to Louis CK? Or has he patented the entire topic of itchy assholes? Dane did a different joke about itchy assholes, and I say it's a public domain topic.

2) The "funny names" bit. Just because you're doing a joke about giving a kid a funny name, doesn't mean you're ripping Louis CK off. If anything, Louis CK is ripping Steve Martin off for doing a joke like that on one of his albums, and Steve is ripping HIMSELF off for doing a different joke on a different album.

3) "Traffic accident" -- two very different jokes that deal with traffic accidents. I don't think that's a "bad thing".

Sen. Warren taking care of business on CNBC's 'Squawk Box'
07/21/13, 15:23

Seconding memedumpster. I've heard that Glass-Steagall would haved prevented the recent meltdown, but I've heard it from people whose understanding of most issues can fit into 140 characters, so their opinions are suspect.

Here's an article that may shed some light:

http://dealbook.nytimes.com/2012/05/21/reinstating-an-old-rule-is-not-a-cure-for-crisis/

The author doesn't seem to be opposed to government regulation, he just doesn't think Glass-Steagall would have prevented this particular crisis. From the article:

---

But here’s the key: Glass-Steagall wouldn’t have prevented the last financial crisis. And it probably wouldn’t have prevented JPMorgan’s $2 billion-plus trading loss. The loss occurred on the commercial side of the bank, not at the investment bank. But parts of the bet were made with synthetic credit derivatives — something that George Bailey in “It’s a Wonderful Life” would never have touched.

When I called Ms. Warren and pressed her about whether she thought the financial crisis or JPMorgan’s losses could have been avoided if Glass-Steagall were in place, she conceded: “The answer is probably ‘No’ to both.”

I see this video is from the "LaughingAtLiberals" channel. While liberals may present themselves poorly and can even be every bit as dumb and misinformed as the wingnuttiest Teabagger, at least liberals have their hearts in the right place pretty reliably.
Breaking Bad: 1995 version
07/21/13, 12:38

I know the scene I want to see in the 2013 finale to "Breaking Bad". It's a tense moment at Walt's house, Hank's got a gun pointed at Walt, Walt has a desperate look in his eye, and just then ... Walt Jr drags himself into the room and asks, "Uncle Hank, w-why are you gonna s-shoot my d-dad?" Hank gets a look on his face like "oh fuck, how do I even begin to explain this?", Walt looks embarrassed, and for an awkward minute or two Walt Jr bitches about how nobody tells him anything. Eventually he leaves, and Hank and Walt just kind of retreat to different rooms of the house.

Any speculation on how the 1995 "Breaking Bad" will end?

I can tell you how the 1986 "Breaking Bad" will end: Walt and Hank use Walt's drug money to open the Breaking Bad Detective Agency.
Obama's surprise speech on Trayvon Martin and young black men in America
07/20/13, 18:11

"Neighborhood watch accidentally killing a black kid who was beating his face in for asking him what he was doing in his neighborhood?"

Let's take that apart:

"Neighborhood watch" -- George Zimmerman was strictly self-appointed neighborhood watch, which is to say, nothing.

"accidentally" -- except for the part where Zimmerman deliberately followed Trayvon, deliberately got out of his SUV, and deliberately pulled his gun out and deliberately fired it.

"who was beating his face in" -- in an altercation that Zimmerman provoked, seeing as Trayvon had no other goals that night except to go home with Skittles and iced tea. Additionally, what sort of broken man can't take a 17-year-old kid 50 pounds lighter than him, and considers a fistfight with said teenager a life-or-death situation?

"for asking him what he was doing in his neighborhood" -- you're taking Zimmerman's version of events as verified fact? Really?

"?" -- there is very little question that Zimmerman instigated the fight, was not in legitimate fear for his life, and killed a 17-year-old kid needlessly.
