houndoggie: much ado about nothing.


Like that's ever stopped Republicans from crying about something.

Sucks to be HBO! I bet nobody will watch this week's episode now.

Let me 'splain. No, that will take too long. Let me sum up..

Some people are butthurt
 
2012-06-14 12:54:14 PM  
HBO also said the scene would be removed from future DVD pressings

Now I am outraged.

So can you dispute the fact that your party is made up of people who will whine about the stupidest possible issues from the President's choice of hamburger condiment to the fact that a country music girl group dared to have an opinion?
 
2012-06-14 12:55:17 PM  
Just imagine the outrage if it was Obama. The butthurt would be unprecedented.
 
2012-06-14 12:55:41 PM  
Several people on social media sites called for a boycott of HBO, calling the "Thrones" move "uncool" and an example of "lamestream media."

This sentence right here might be the nadir of journalism.

that happens no matter what way you lean politically. there are loudmouth blowhards on all sides of the fence.

Heh... you're probably right
 
2012-06-14 12:58:26 PM  
Honestly, I'm more outraged that season two really didn't go anywhere.

Also, WHERE ARE MY DRAGONS?!!?

AmazinTim: Just imagine the outrage if it was Obama. The butthurt would be unprecedented.


Now *that's* funny.

Butthurt is a word that originated with the far right. (you know, those poor little xenophobes that are terrified of anything that differentiates in the slightest from their narrow little view of the universe) They've owned it for quite awhile now.

season 2 was great.

why?


lots of Tyrion.

The producers also did an about face, kind of, releasing their own statement.
"We use a lot of prosthetic body parts on the show: heads, arms, etc. We can't afford to have these all made from scratch, especially in scenes where we need a lot of them, so we rent them in bulk," the statement read. "After the scene was already shot, someone pointed out that one of the heads looked like George W. Bush. In the DVD commentary, we mentioned this, though we should not have. We meant no disrespect to the former President and apologize if anything we said or did suggested otherwise."

That is not an about face. That's the same thing they said in the commentary.

In other not news, Fox is manufacturing controversy in a slow news cycle again.

Why? This sort of thing is pretty common on the right. And it isn't inadvertant either.

2012-06-14 01:22:30 PM  
Why are they outraged?

Just say the Baretheons are Democrats and Joffrey is Obama.

/do I have to write their own derp?
 
2012-06-14 01:24:00 PM  
Seeing the pic, if someone hadn't told me it was Bush it wouldn't have occurred to me to think it was.
 
2012-06-14 01:32:59 PM  
It's disrepectful. However, as both a Republican and a fan of GOT, I chose not get worked up it.
 
2012-06-14 01:36:46 PM  
The creators of a TV show don't like the President I liked. OHH NOES.

it's not even disrespectful. it is not an effigy of Bush, it is the head of Lord Eddard Stark.

So you're saying that there are two sides. and that they are very similar. both of them. and that as a result we should vote for one of those sides?

AmazinTim: Just imagine the outrage if it was Obama. The butthurt would be unprecedented.


Under the same circumstances, yes, people would be outraged, but the sorts of people who get worked up over benign, meaningless stuff like this are generally incredibly insecure and desperately need to grind their little axes over slights that don't even directly involve them.

I think you should read the article again. Just sayin'.

I'd be outraged because there were no black individuals among Ned Stark's retainers. Hell, the only black guy in Westeros or Essos so far is apparently Xaro Xhoan Daxos. It would be an obvious and intolerable breach of canon.

Ok. Now that I have admitted to myself that I do, in fact, need my damn glasses, let me correct myself:

It's disrespectful. However, as both a Republican and a fan of GOT, I choose not to get worked up by it.

Yes, but that's not politics rage. That's nerd rage. And I'm okay with that.

/Because it was a salient point.
 
2012-06-14 02:51:24 PM  
Definitely time to snap up a copy of the current DVD pressing of Season 1....
 
2012-06-14 02:51:55 PM  
Meh, sometimes it's best not to open your mouth about some things.

/or so the Seattle crew tells me this.......

AmazinTim: Just imagine the outrage if it was Obama. The butthurt would be unprecedented.


meh, not really, even if they did it going forward... I can appreciate that they have to work on a budget and there's probably a surplus of famous people heads around.
 
2012-06-14 03:29:22 PM  
Shut up, you whiny biatches.
 
2012-06-14 03:29:23 PM  
I'm not surprised. Look at how outraged and outspoken the Right was when that idiot pastor in Florida hung President Obama in effigy. Remember that?

*crickets*

Ah, so both sides are bad, huh?

Wait.........this is an amazing discovery! Why hasn't someone thought of this before?

Hey I'm just asking questions here.

Tigger: So you're saying that there are two sides. and that they are very similar. both of them. and that as a result we should vote for one of those sides?


According to my friends, I'm the libbiest lib to ever lib a lib, and even I can tell he's not doing a BSABSVR here.

He said both sides are the same on this one issue, not that both sides are equally bad period.
 
2012-06-14 03:38:06 PM  
In our charged political environment I don't think we should be taking lightly anything approaching the notion of political assassination. This bleeding heart lib didn't care to see this story at all, its just very uncool.

Boycotting the show over some political commentary you never even noticed is just goofy.
 
2012-06-14 03:38:45 PM  
Which one is supposed to be Bush?

Hey, there was also that one pirate that was obsessed with plundering Ceresi's booty after Stannis takes King's Landing.

/Where da white women at?
 
2012-06-14 03:40:33 PM  
Does someone have the GOP enemies list? Time to do some updates.

Shouldn't brag about scoring with teacher on Facebook either, dumas.
