"palpable biatchery" is not equivalent to "biatch".

One is acting in the manner of one. The other is being one.

/my mother never understood this point that one time I tried to make the distinction. I was young and foolish and bruised for days
 
2014-02-06 01:06:16 PM  
Seriously. That sort of language is reserved for non-celebrities, ya big, windy, under-edited, repetitive dope.

"palpable biatchery" is not CALLING anyone anything.

You have to admit the phrase "palpable biatchery" is awesome even if this wasn't the best time to use it.

physt: You have to admit the phrase "palpable biatchery" is awesome even if this wasn't the best time to use it.


I was going to add "and I'm stealing this" to my post, but figured I'd just slink off with it.

For a guy who has written many books, you'd think he could have come up with a better way to say it.

Satan's Bunny Slippers: "palpable biatchery" is not CALLING anyone anything.

All well and good, but the flower bed was full of manure and he stepped in it. If anyone should know how language works in the way of pushing certain buttons, you'd think that King would.

To be sure, "palpable biatchery" is a phrase well worth saving for a rainy day. One that comes soon, I hope, before I forget it. I suspect, though, that it will be turning up in numerous Fark threads over the coming days.

That was the better way to say it. The tactless way would be "lying c♥ntiness".

Like I said, it's been clear since The Stand that nobody's editing Stephen Doorstopper King.

King's not exactly highbrow. I'm pretty sure this is fairly tame by his standards.

And he might be friends with Woody Allen but I dont think I would talk about someone elses family business.

The biatchery is palpable.
 
2014-02-06 01:44:51 PM  
I think if you've read more than one article on this you'd assume he was referring to Mia.

And I doubt these people are that upset over the sexist connotations of the word "biatch." I know I'm not.

Through the last few threads on this it's become clear that the anti-Allen faction will attack anyone threatening the high they get from their self-righteousness with a vehemence generally found in pro-life protesters, charging ahead while ignoring the flaws in their evidence and logic.

I hope it blows over after the Oscars.

Stephen King?  How in the hell did he manage to say something in only 140 characters?
 
2014-02-06 01:51:07 PM  
Palpable biatchery is an excellently turned phrase. It conveys a very precise meaning and is very descriptive and catchy.
 
2014-02-06 01:54:03 PM  
I sure hope Allen didn't show her his Woody.
 
2014-02-06 01:55:55 PM  
Woody Allen always struck me as a kind of creepy guy. But if this kind of thing was going on, where the hell was Mia to stop it? Something tells me she had shiatty awareness of things going on around her. And if your life is too busy for you to notice if one of the kids is being abused, maybe you get un-busy. Children aren't pets or accessories or art items to collect, they turn into full grown human beings with serious problems that usually can't be repaired adequately. Rich ladies with emotional problems collecting kids.

That is a fncking trip.

With no
Window spying neighbours
And no
Husbands in the future

FunkOut: Woody Allen always struck me as a kind of creepy guy. But if this kind of thing was going on, where the hell was Mia to stop it? Something tells me she had shiatty awareness of things going on around her. And if your life is too busy for you to notice if one of the kids is being abused, maybe you get un-busy. Children aren't pets or accessories or art items to collect, they turn into full grown human beings with serious problems that usually can't be repaired adequately. Rich ladies with emotional problems collecting kids.


The claim was never that anyone was being abused, but that there was a single incident that occurred in a house full of kids and nannies at the very moment when Allen had the most to lose should something untoward happen. If you read up on the accusation, the evidence, and the circumstances, it all seems pretty ridiculous, but of course it's the kind of thing you fully investigate just in case it did occur. And it was investigated, and the accusations found to be groundless.

One especially odd thing about the recent brouhaha is that Farrow knew Allen was going to receive an award for his work, and even okayed the use of her performances in the clip montage. Then after the awards show, she tweeted how disgusting it was that he received it.

(Oh, by "being abused," I mean an ongoing situation).

Doctor Sleep is all plot. Not as good as The Shining. Kind of like Requiem for a Dream in that Addiction is a powerful, ever-present force if not a character in its own right.

I, for one, am shocked that a guy who wrote about a bunch of 11 year olds having an orgy in the sewer, would take the side of an accused child molester!!

Well, it's pretty much obvious Mia Farrow is bizarro anyway. Her actions in life just seem loopy.

I would boycott King for defending a pedo, but I don't read his crap, anyway.  He's writing is long winded and tedious.

It's been a busy couple of weeks for them having this and then Philip Seymour Hoffman's death too. I haven't done the math on overlaps, but the junkie contempt and the "don't you dare even hint at the possibility that he's not a pedo!" freakouts all sound eerily similar. The care and feeding of so many high horses must be off the chart.
