my A-TEAM movie


These are my actors I would try to cast if I were making a big screen version of the A-TEAM tv show. Some picks I think could be better,like Hopkins. I probably would use Clooney if he would do it. and B.A. BARACUS,my brother thinks Michael Clark Duncan would be good.

easter hare

where my eggs at biatch?

Well Easter is here and for many Christians its time to celebrate the resurrection myth but for kids who don't care about that stuff it is bunny time. Easter baskets filled with chocolate rabbits and candy and jelly beans. You probably are wondering what Easter has to do with rabbits...nothing. Just another way the Cristian church tried to convert pagans to celebrate their religion, by combining the "pagan" holidays with their one. Other American holidays have pagan roots also like Halloween and Christmas. But the kids don't care so give me my eggs biatch.

The gospel of Judas

It is being reported that a manuscript found about 3 decades ago is a gospel of Judas. In it Judas says he was asked by Jesus to betray him. if this is true that makes Jesus an even greater person, not just to say you are dying for people's sins but to actually give yourself up to further your beliefs.

frenemies

I have been coming online for about 8 or 9 years now and in all that time I have had only two people that I considered close friends from online. They both lived far away from me. One in CA the other in AZ. both female. Anyway the first was this girl and I got so involved in her life that I used to call her a lot, sent her valentines chocolate, birthday cards what have you. Later on I found out it was all a game and she was playing me for a joke lying to me about everything...that hurt. The other girl we were not as close but I still considered her a friend. I sent her a gift on her birthday and always remembered her birthday even if I could only send her an e-card. Recently I realized something when I was chatting with her online that I don't matter to her at all. All the conversations we had were about her and her family she never asked anything about me or took any interest in anything I was doing. She never initiated a conversation online and if she answered my question it would be terse one-line answers sometimes. She never sent me a birthday card e-card or real. So I had to tell myself that SHE WAS NOT REALLY MY FRIEND.

Byrne victim


I am a marvel zombie from way back, I used to collect comics but I stopped some time ago. One of my favorite artists was John Byrne, the dude could draw although his depiction of black people was a little limited it was okay because not many black people showed up in the comics. My only prob with Byrne was his way of putting little sneaky racial stuff in his works.

A while ago in his website he used the word "nigger" in a rather offensive way. I know how can you use it in a non-offensive way. The problem I had was that he compared the use of the N-word as being interchangeable with black, like the two words for the word bubbles in comics that hold the dialogue of the characters. I don’t know about you but "word balloon" and "word bubble" has never been as repugnant as "nigger" to me. Not only was his analogy wrong but also it was gross and a little racist. I just think it was a way for the dude to say his own feelings. As for some of his works I have a problem with, they are numerous.



  1. Fantastic four- (241) Byrne finally uses the Black Panther in a story but it is destroyed by his antagonist being a racist, a Greek or Roman racist too at a time when the kind of racism that exist today the villain would not even be aware of


  2. Captain America- (I am not sure of the issue number) Captain America is having a flashback about being in school and the pictures are an obvious play on the little rascals and there is buckwheat pictured as an inkspot. I don’t know if it was the colorist’s doing or the way it was drawn but I am sure Byrne was happy with the results.

  3. Marvel Fanfare- (29) Hammer and Anvil star in this issue. They are marvel comic’s play on The Defiant Ones (one is black the other is white)and they battle the hulk. In the end of the story a mysterious stranger blast one of the two in the face with a gun (guess which one?)


  4. Omac limited series- here we have Byrne doing a reworking of the classic Kirby character (Kirby being the one artist he is compared to most and he has chased his whole career) there is one scene that has been changed from the original comics. A scene depicting how to relieve stress. There are these dolls that you can kick and beat up. Well Byrne decided that one of the dolls should be black complete with wide mouth and white lips. A change from the original drawing by Kirby.


I could go on but I think I made my point
