Onko uusi marxilainen vallankumous tulossa? (TV7 Café Raamattu)

“Miksi perinteistä avioliittokäsitystä horjutetaan juuri nyt niin voimakkaasti? Onko homoliikkeen menestyksen takana tietoinen yhteiskunnallinen suunnitelma, jolla tähdätään klassisen kristillisen avioliittokäsityksen murtamiseen? Vieraana dosentti Juha Ahvio.”

New Beavis and Butt-head episodes in production?

Beavis and Butt-Head and it’s spin-off Daria are great sources for therapeutical insight and self identification for anyone who didn’t particularly enjoy growing up in a typical kindergarten-for-teens kind of high school setting.

B&BH creator Mike Judge later did a name for himself with cult movies Office Space and Idiocracy. Youtube#.

TVkaistan tomitusjohtaja kommentoi poliisitutkimukseksi kasvanutta kiistaa Suomen ainoasta järkevästa TV-palvelusta

Kuten jo tiedämme, vanhoillis-medioilla on jotain sitä vastaan, että ihmiset nauttivat heidän tuotteista ei-kelvottomassa formaatissa.

I was handed this clip from a 2005 HBO documentary titled Middle Sexes: Redefining He and She (imdb). This is pure gold: loudmouthed “straight” males are guaranteed to feel stupendously uncomfortable. All of this is based on a study conducted at University of Georgia in 1996. The study showed that 54% of a group of homophobic, self-described heterosexual men were, while denying it, sexually aroused by watching gay porn. Non-homophobic, heterosexual males who participated in the study revealed little signs of arousal.

Watching the whole film is strongly encouraged. It provides a well presented summary of how traditional (western) views on gender and sexuality are hideously alienating and evil, based on examples from all over the world.

At the time of writing, a split-up version of the 54 minute piece is available in fairly decent quality on Youtube.

Parts: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 (credits).

The Zen TV Experiment

The article opens with some interesting, meditation like exercises that allegedly will help the reader grasp the inner nature of the idiot box. A bit further into the text, the author goes off the rails with a to my mind quite thoughtful Buddhism like rant about the overall brain rotting qualities of TV. Which I happen to mostly agree with.

Tvkaistaa syytetään taas laittomaksi

Kuten yleensä, vanhoillis-medioilla on jotain sitä vastaan, että ihmiset nauttivat heidän tuotteista ei-kelvottomassa formaatissa. Tvkaista on muuten palvelu joka pitäisi sisältyä TV-maksuun (.).
