...by his character. I realize this now. I've shown bad character and would like to apologize.
I'm sorry, Dad.
Another thing I'd like to address is the incoherent babble of these goons who call themselves fans of Kevin Smith. Bashing and slander of someone because they dislike the icon that Kevin has become, in the eyes of some, shows bad character and reflects upon 'the Bob.' So don't open your mouth, unless you have something you'd like to portray in a civil manner. Mice run around shitting on everything, right Mick? Be a man, show some character, and keep your flaming to yourselves. I should've kept that last post to myself.
Darth shed some light on a subject that I've neglected for too long...Thank you, DD.
: There seems to have been, somewhere along the lines, a death of shame. A little bit of shame can be a very good thing. If you say something STUPID, and are called out on it, shame is the intellectual-survival-mechanism that drives you to become better informed on the subject. If you are a lout, and say or do something creepy or nasty, and are taken to task for it, shame can be the force that makes you reconsider your stance.
~~You're absolutley right, I should shut the fuck up, as well. "Shame cannot exist where there is no Honor." ~ Phillip Dunbar.
There ain't no honor in bashing on the 'net.
: In a way, it's also the death of chivalry. Remember when the "nerds" used to be the quiet, pensive kids who secretly adored the "popular" girls, and crafted sweet, naeive fantasies about being the "secret worthy" ones that, by dint of noble intention and being "the good guy," would EVENTUALLY win out? The party line for the nerd-set about whatever girl who was the object of their geeky adoration used to be "If she were with me, I'd treat her like a princess."
~~Wouldn't that be just swell. I'd lavish affection upon her as loyally as a puppy dog.
: Not so anymore. Somewhere along the line, the masturbatory Knowles-contingent won out. This is a REALLY geeky thing to say, but it is as if "the Dark Side" of the Dork Side has finally set in, and now holds absolute sway and dominion. It's why I stopped reading the funnybooks-Comics stopped being about goody-two-shoes heros fighting bad guys, stopped being brightly colored and innocently fun morality tales, and became angry, adolescent revenge fantasies, filled with gun-toting, no-shit-taking anti-heroes, and ridiculously out of proportion, scantily clad boob-women.
~~ DIE COMMIE SCUM!!!.... but seriously, you've got a point. But shoe on the other foot, this counter-culture nonsense was brought about by people who wanted everything to be nice and civil. The greatest period in history "the Renaissance" came about in a time of war-mongering and strife. That's when chivalry was at it's peak.
: How very sad and tawdry.
~~Indeedily doo, neighbor.
: Somebody convinced "guys," somewhere, that being a "guy" is somehow more "honest" and "true." If you feel something, SAY IT! Fuck responsibility, fuck other people's perspective, fuck propriety, SAY IT!
~~We're not responsible for our actions.
My psychoanalyst says it's all someone else's fault.
: Anyway, I think that crazy girl in SAY ANYTHING said it best when she said, "Don't be a GUY, Lloyd. Be a man."
~~"Sticking feathers up your butt does not make you a chicken." And growing into an adult male does not qualify you for Manhood. That's dictated by your actions and how you conduct yourself in life.
This has been a public service announcement from the men who you look up to, and disappoint everyday, Dad.
