Who you gonna call?

Not. Me.

So the new Ghostbusters trailer finally dropped last week, after having had a trailer for the trailer (which is like an ad for an ad) and it shows us exactly what this Movie will be:
Utter crap.

Don’t get me wrong and start your feminist ramblings. I wanted to be excited about this movie, and I really didn’t give two shits about the fact they did the gender swap. Screw it, if it is written well, the all female cast is fine.
But that’s where the main problem lies. It is not written well.

It dishes out stereotypes (“sassy blackwoman”) uses unfunny comedy (“is it the wig or the hat”; did I go to the wrong trailer? Is this a scooby doo episode?), and the writing in all seems to follow the “how to write clean, politically correct, stereotypical comedy” rule book that has been floating around Hollywood for far too long.
For example, when one of them is possessed, I knew that she will get the ghost slapped out of her. Then it happens.
The ghost flies away, and here we have already established that ghosts can be seen, but I knew that she will get slapped again. Then that happens. Or when they both say “Let’s go.” and then go back and forth about it in an unfunny way.

Predictable.
Uncomfortable.
Unfunny.
Wannabe.

Again, no issue with them being women, just bad writing. Maybe a lack of chemistry.
And we get to a hint of an antagonist. “Someone is creating a device that amplifies paranormal activity…”

Fuck!
You!

If you’re looking for the best and funniest scenes in this movie, you just saw them.

If they make a sequel, I just hope it will be better written. Oh and by the way, I am seriously thinking about seeing this piece still. Why? So I can better judge it. Who knows, maybe the trailer is utter crap, and the film a hidden gem. Part of me sees this as a case of Star Wars. We all knew the prequels sucked ass, we still went to watch Episode 3.
We’ll see….take care, and keep bustin’

Beating around.

Marketing geniuses.

Alright, here in Europe one is fairly sheltered from hate filled fallout from a sporting event in the US, and the accompanying advertisements.

In this case, a pot party and apparently a hate crime.

It seems that the right in the US are loosing their collective shit because Coca Cola dared to have the song “America the Beautiful” (or what it’s called) sung in many different languages. Showing how unified America is, although coming from many different cultures.

I think it is a sign of utter brilliance.
They knew how the mouthbreathers would react.
They intended for them to react this way.

Now the super-ultra-free-“democracydemoncrazy”-right-wing-nutjobs are doing nothing but talking about the Coca Cola company all day long! Not realising that, that is exactly what coke wants.
PUBLICITY!
Tell you what my mouthbreathing friends, keep yappin’ all day long, you’re just proving one point: You are not free, just slaves to your corprate masters. They use the right tug on the leash and you make noise. Bravo!

Facebook Lookback Films.

Really people? You are doing this?
Okay, if you ahven’t realized what is happening, the Facebook people unzipped their pants and are waving their d*ck around to piss all over the place. Saying “We can reduce your life into a little powerpoint presentation.”
I’d feel degraded making this “film” about me. Which is why I won’t, bad enough I returned to the nuthouse (I want closure to some friends I hold dear). But I refuse to let Zuckerberg – or his merry madmen – condense everything I ever did on their site into a little power-point presentation.
It’s pathetic.

Sochi 2014

Frak off! If I would actually care about these stupid mass sport events (including the superb-owl), I would boycott Sochi 2014. Russia has taken steps backwards.
One pace forward, three back.
Listen, a country as oppressive as russia was once the enemy of the western world, it was called….wait for it…RUSSIA! After the fall of the UdSSR you people thought it was over, didn’t you?
Well my lovelies, you were wrong. The way russia treats political opponents of Putin, the way they treat gays – unacceptable. If you have any dignity – boycott these games!
If you are an athlete competing at the olympics – BACK OUT if you have any selfrespect left.

Starting today (!), boycott this crap!
(BTW: Did you ever notice that all these sporting events line up perfectly to keep masses distracted from REAL news?)

Beating the Financial Market

Two dudes walk into a restaurant, one has his eyes glued to the screen of his cellphone, tries to locate blindly a hook for his coat. And mumbles “Somewhere around here ought to be a hook.” he tries a few times and catches his coat as it almost fell. “No hook!” he smiles into the camera, and the two dudes proceed to find a table. (In german it’s a word play implying that there is no catch.)  

What I describe here is an ad for an app on your cellphone that lets you trade stocks. And it made me really angry.
For two reasons.

Number one, as you all know – I hate advertising. And stupid advertising in particular. Sometimes it seems they take their ideas from Necronimc…fecesbo…nuthouse journa…facebook feeds “Look how stupid I am, LOOK!”… I digress

Number two, and this is what made me angry enough to write a post about it: These people, these blood sucking leeches, who have almost ruined the world wide economy TWICE in the last twenty years or so (Tech/.com bubble and housing bubble), now need an app on their cellphones so they can continue to wreak havoc on us working people, comfortably from EVERYWHERE!

People who are NOT producing shit, who aren’t providing even a faint hint of a service, who ruin the lives of hardworking people all over the globe, and they can do it EVERYWHERE now!

This angers me. People too incompetent to manufacture anything, intellectually incpabale of providing any sort of service, make shitloads of money by ruining the economy and the lives of people who actually put effort and sweat in to get some money.

Originally stocks were a good idea:
Give the workers a financial interest in the company they work for. GOOD!

Now – it’s pervers.

It should be outlawed as it serves NO PURPOSE other than to provide crooks a place where they can steal money, make money out of nothing, and trade money that doesn’t exist, legally. Purely virtual amounts of money (with no real life basis) are shoveled around – it kind of reminds me of a nuthouse, people trade things with one another that aren’t there!

Would you give the clinically insane an App so they can trade their imaginary things? And if so, would you advertise for it?

C’mon, really?
