2016's barely started. And we still have the elections and the possibility of finishing off the year with President Elect Trump!
This Pornstar would concur..
At this point, I would trade the Devil's Homer act for Enjoy. At least Enjoy was good at emulating real life FOX news arguments that you could practice on.
Nominal - I'm a little confused as to why you think I'm "emulating a FOX news argument". I'm not sure if Fox has EVER mentioned Trump's past association with the Democratic Party, nor the millions in financial backing he's given to the Clintons (people who are now being billed as his "arch-rivals") over the years. Fox, as with America's other media oligarchies, rarely if ever breaks kayfabe, and if such out-of-storyline observations were made in the past, I'm sure they've been long-since buried down Murdoch's memory hole.
If I wanted to "play the Devil's Homer" and "emulate a Fox News argument", I'd say something like...
Trump is a successful billionaire! He's going to save the country by restoring the Constitution, and getting rid of all the Mexicans!
... which of course isn't true. He's going to wind up doing all the same things his BFF Hillary would do, e.g. continuing to ignore the Constitution, and using convenient partisan scapegoats in whatever way is necessary to expand the scope of the security state. ( but no, I miss Enjoy too. )
IZ - that's an interesting article! I knew people who did that back during the "Bush vs Gore" run-up (to no avail, of course). It's just too bad that Mr Jackman hopes, earnestly and without a shred of irony, that the next election will be between Hillary "love WalMart, bomb Syria" Clinton and Donald "fear Mexicans, bomb Syria" Trump.

I'm pretty sure he died falling off a Nakatomi Plaza, but that could've been a hostage.. RIP Mr. Rickman. :(
Mourning awesome celebrities week is a real downer so far.

He was one of my all-time favorite actors, and I'm really sad to see him go.
Fuck 2016. Fuck it right in the pussy.
Did anyone keep the receipt?

You wanted a miracle, Theo? I give you the F... B... I!
Amazing that was his first theatrical release movie role.
I remember hearing an interview with Rickman in which said he was bewildered by his own success, comparing his voice to "a foghorn", and he said his looks weren't much better.
This guy was awesome.
Oh crap now I have to go watch Wizard People again.
Track down the original version (if he starts laughing during the sorting hat scene it's the OG). It's way funnier because he is just getting drunk and reading it off a piece of paper and it has a way better energy as a result, but he's done his best to wipe it from the web since he did the second version that's more common. Or a least he had a few years ago, he might not care anymore.
There was/is a torrent of the original version synced to the movie with a couple of edits to keep the sync from drifting, and it's pretty good. I ended up shifting the audio a second or so and feel like it lines up better that way but it's loose enough to begin with that it doesn't matter too much.
I couldn't give a crap about Harry Potter but I count first draft Wizard People in my top 10 favorite movies of all time, no question. Works pretty well as an audiobook, too.
Oh good, it's on Youtube now, no longer hard to get.
2016: the year all my childhood fantasy film villains died.
First Bowie now Rickman. And we aren't even half way through January yet.
Fucking cancer. Fuck.
