    I think you're giving them more power than they really have. They can't seem to stop Donald Trump and they're really trying to with him. If you are a public figure and you fuck up - yeah the media will crucify you. But they aren't making anyone fuck up, people do fine all by themselves.

    The Bill Cosby thing has been talked about for decades, none of these women just "came out of the shadows". This charge is the only one inside the statute of limitations. The media is not making any of this happen. There are a bunch of Bill Cosby truthers running off at the mouth recently, maybe you'll want to get with them.

    Hey, listen, if the guy really is guilty of all that, he should be crucified. But, I don't believe any of it. I'm not on one side or the other. It just didn't happen, that's all. None of it. The Hollywood Elite can make anything happen on the airwaves. Anything at all. They are the ones responsible for making this shit up. They either paid Cosby to pretend he did this, and paid all the actress/accusers, or he just agreed, as an actor, to play a part. But I don't for one minute believe this story or most of the others that play out on the news. Hollywood is full of sick people.

    The whole Cosby thing is curious because I remember seeing weird, racist I think, although not explicitly so, games and memes a long time ago and sort of dismissed them because I thought he was just a black guy done good and not a lot of people could stand that. I thought that at the time of the OJ trial and also the way the media covered Tigar Woods cheating on his wife. Although its turning out to be less about race and more about an abuse of perceived celebrity and power. At least that's how I've felt since Pestorius (spelling) shot his girlfriend and the news broke about Jimmy Saville, Rolf Harris and, shamefully, virtually every male TV personality in childrens TV in the late seventies and eighties in the UK.

    I dont think that's credible, the reality is probably somewhere in between but this post sounds a little like you think you're living in the Truman Show. You're not, the world is really just that bad.

    I know the world is that bad. I also know a few (more than a few) Hollywood actors, irl. And I know what they're capable of, I know how they think and I know what kind of shithead power they have. So, my assertion stands.

    This Bill Cosby thing is heartbreaking, and whether it's true or it's just people milking on the opportunity (somewhat reminiscent of Michael Jackson), I hope for the best for all involved. I would hate for it to be true, but I also hate the idea that people would craft such destructive lies.

    I'm also incredibly torn on the James Deen rape allegations because he seems like such a solid guy, but I love and respect Stoya and couldn't see her (or the other girls that come forth) fabricating any of it. It's just sad and I'll refrain from making judgements on this or other such cases until they've actually been proven guilty.

    Ugh, my kitchen is disgusting. I had no sleep last night, so today I'm going to eat out, then go to bed. Tomorrow evening I'm going to give the kitchen the works.
