Carbon Copy came out in 1981, just a great movie about racism,It is simply a classic with great dialogue, glossing over huge racial stereo types with comedy. I appreciate and enjoy movies much more in this decade.
There is a documentary on marketing that I want to watch, and I truly believe that racism is something that is marketed. How many of us have ever had a personal negative experience with a different race? If racism is marketed we stay divided as a country, as a globe . Look back at what Edward Bernays accomplished with group marketing. If the powers at be package racism and market it , we buy it, as they do with so many other things.
Past TV show, How to Look Good Naked, on Lifetime, with Carson Kressley, was putting women on the radar, to embrace themselves from head to toe in their individual beauty! He is going to Oprah’s OWN Network (their website). Ladies! Carson is just one of many reminders that we need to make ourselves feel good inside and out of our skin. Most men are just gorgeous doing nothing, so let us learn to be less preoccupied with our silly hang ups and accept every part of ourselves. Shake what your mother and father gave you, stop focusing on what other people define as beauty. I truly believe the world is our mirror, whatever we put out, we get back, so believe and live your best beauty for yourself. This important Quote “Beauty is only skin deep” has always repeated itself through centuries so absorb it !
There is great, insightful dialogue and rapping lyrics Warren Beatty sings in Bulworth. It is amazing that a film made in 1998 is still relevant with the same bureaucracy we still deal with today regarding our political officials and government! I love the visionaries that see and illustrate the snapshots.
We have such a monopoly and a one sided agenda that needs to change. I’m hopeful that the day is coming, just look around the globe and countries that are speaking out !
The eighties, nineties, and some earlier movies are just great to go back to. Dialogue is so important , the message or messages it leaves you with. That time period in movies was minimal and more realistic, people in film were normal looking and we related to them much easier. Joe Versus The Volcano, just a great movie, with a great message. There are so many great lines in this film. If you have a chance , watch it!
The battle , the debate of many states recognizing same sex marriages and relationships, arouses my curiosity for understanding . I know that a television show The L Word, is not the true depiction or interpretation, but it sure imitates life. The show translates a culture of stories that shares insight to the unfamiliar.
I never understood the world between same sex genders. I have lived a very sheltered life. I come from a place of unfamiliarity, the last thing I want to do is judge and criticize. If I do not impose my way of being on anyone then I want the same freedoms. I want to live my life the way I choose to. The same set of rules needs to apply to everyone.
Why should the rights as a heterosexual married person be validated when heterosexuals do not give integrity to the sanctity of marriage. I believe there is an ignorant population out there that feels there is darkness and an infiltrating outbreak that it is contagious. Homosexuality represents a perverted sexual culture for the uniformed. When people have fear they react or act un-human like. Things that are different, unfamiliar pose threats to individuals. Instead of checking themselves they rather backlash at something or someone else. I had one gay male friend at one point in my life.
Religion says same sex is an abomination but what do you think went on in the Roman days, men with boys , men with men, and now the Vatican in uproar of sexual abusive priests!
I say live and let live ( as long as no one else is getting hurt) a victimless life journey!
