À la recherche du scamps perdu (Noodle Vague), Saturday, 18 July 2020 23:00 (one year ago) link

Well, the key to my survival was never in much doubt. The question was how I could keep sane, trying to find the way out. Things were never easy for me, peace of mind was hard to find, and I needed a place where I could hide, somewhere I could call mine. I didn't think much about it 'til it started happening all the time. Soon I was living with the fear everyday of what might happen at night. I couldn't stand to hear the crying of my mother, and I remember when I swore that that would be the last they'd see of me, and I never went home again. They say time is a healer, and now my wounds are not the same. I rang the bell with my heart in my mouth. I had to hear what he'd say. He sat me down to talk to me, he looked me straight in the eyes. He said, "these are no peeps, these are no peeps of mine."

What's John Oliver done?

trishyb, Sunday, 19 July 2020 18:20 (one year ago) link

probably a sex offender or a pedphil, but I'm sorry folks I can't share my huge made-up dossier on him on these pages!

First name on the list.

lol of course his current 'girlfriend', whom he started dating in 2014, was only 25 at the time (he was 70).

pomenitul, Sunday, 19 July 2020 20:20 (one year ago) link

Correction, first name on the list is Bill Wyman.

Sonny Shamrock (Tom D.), Sunday, 19 July 2020 20:21 (one year ago) link

Tbc 25 is old enough to date an adult of any age, I only find it iffy in light of Lori Mattix's allegations.

Clarence Thomas

and the things I've heard about Fred Armisen must not have been true because he's still getting lots of work

this has been the best year fuiud (rip van wanko), Sunday, 19 July 2020 22:12 (one year ago) link

yeah, he hasn't won an Oscar for (checks watch) three years now

I expect better pedantry from sic tbh

k*r*n koltrane (Simon H.), Sunday, 19 July 2020 22:18 (one year ago) link

It is in fairness true that Mel Gibson hasn't won an Oscar for three years - it's just that it's also true that he hasn't won one for 254 years.

I'd rather he hadn't been nominated for one three years ago, mind.

Andrew Farrell, Sunday, 19 July 2020 22:32 (one year ago) link

Yeah, I was going to correct sic, but I didn't have the heart!

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 19 July 2020 23:06 (one year ago) link

the La La Land / Moonlight fake-out was a double bluff to cover up Mel's win

(it was nommed for Best Picture and Best Director at both the Oscars and the Golden Globes, and won both plus another eight including Best International Direction at the AACTAs)

Steppin' RZA (sic), Monday, 20 July 2020 00:22 (one year ago) link

ok

k*r*n koltrane (Simon H.), Monday, 20 July 2020 00:35 (one year ago) link

tbh I just assumed he produced it, so that the two Oscar wins did count for rhetorical purposes

Steppin' RZA (sic), Monday, 20 July 2020 01:04 (one year ago) link

Mark Wahlberg and his piece of shit brothers

Left, the Sophie Lewis thing is too complicated for me to explain, except I think she sucks

blue light or electric light (the table is the table), Monday, 20 July 2020 11:16 (one year ago) link

ok. she’s only vaguely familiar as a name on the internet to me

Same. From the reviews the book on surrogacy seemed fine to me but it has angered people on the left, and I do not know a thing about her wife.

Quentin T*r*ntino

brooklyn suicide cult (Dr Morbius), Monday, 20 July 2020 12:46 (one year ago) link

I know people have very strong feelings about Oliver, but I also am far past being able to confidently say I'm keeping up with every cancel worthy allegation in 2020, so just checking in the event I actually did miss something.
