Vague Meanderings of the Broke and Obscure

I have always been me and despite many attempts to make me not me, I still seem to manage to be me. That is not always a good thing.  Read some of my stuff, comment, critique, praise, ignore, puzzle , or just do whatever you want.

BARILLA PASTA A DISASTA

Barilla pasta President Guido Barilla set off a LGBT firestorm this week when he made comments on a radio show about never wanting to use a same-sex couple or a gay family in their advertising. Apparently, their advertising represents a traditional or classic family.pasta5

After people freaked, Guido Barilla tried to ‘apologize’. He doesn’t have a problem with gay people or gay marriage, just that: “In its advertising, Barilla represents the family — because it’s what welcomes everyone.”. 

Is this guy from Italy or 19th Century Italy?

pasat4Beyond the whatever moment of his statements, doesn’t this guy want to sell pasta?

So he only wants to represent traditional families? What exactly does that even mean?  In their commercials a guy spying on a woman as she’s cooking and two people who just met eating pasta à la Lady and the Tramp style. I guess creepy and trite represents traditional for Barilla.

According to this guy only sacral families suit their core values; the rest can still eat their pasta or try another brand.  Let’s see, going to guess many will go with, try another brand.

They should send this guy out more often for interviews, he’s a great salesman.

I wonder if pasta tastes as good with your foot in your mouth?pasta7

FAUX ODE TO BREAKING BAD

bb1

Are you the viewer drawn toward us?
To begin, take warning, we are far different from what you suppose;
Do you suppose you will find in Walter White ideal?
Do you think it so easy to have become a Pinkman?
Do you think the familiarity of Hank would be unalloy’d satisfaction?
Do you look toward the Skyler when death is on the breath of life?
Do you see no further than a pink teddy bear façade, a smooth and tolerant manner?
Do you suppose money advancement toward a real heroic man would last?
Do you suggest the whities could have been tightier?
Have you no thought, O dreamer, that actions have consequences, this is all illusion breaking into bad?

With a little contravention of Walt Whitman I say adieu to Breaking Bad. Like any good morality play, the lessons were many. I bet you can easily figure out what each character personified.bb3

 Breaking Bad reinforced that two wrongs or many, many wrongs don’t make a right.

All actions have consequences, good and bad.

Doing the wrong thing for the right reasons still doesn’t make it right, right?

While we will miss the show, the cast is brilliant and already on the move:
Bryan Cranston (Malcolm in the Middle, X-Files, Family Guy, Seinfeld – ‘Hey Denty!’)
Anna Gunn (Deadwood, ER, Six Feet Under, Seinfeld)
Aaron Paul (X-Files, Big Love, Bones, Family Guy)
Dean Norris (Under The Dome, X-Files, Lost, Castle)
Betsy Brandt, RJ Mitte, Bob Odenkirk,
Giancarlo Esposito, Jonathan Banks,
Laura Fraser, Jesse Plemons

Creating, writing, directing, and producing the AMC drama series Breaking Bad was a masterstroke from Vince Gilligan, X-Files (Note the cast).

Hard to believe it will soon go gently into TV history.

So long.bb2

MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D

So far Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D is everything I was hoping for.

Cool tech, cheesy, super stuff and lots of the funny that we expect from Joss Whedon.

Did I miss Stan Lee or gasp, was he not in it?Image

[Terry: Of course, he was in it, ninny. Stan–who is going to live forever–was one of the Executive Producers. I’m sure he had a cameo–doesn’t he always?  What really frightens me is that I read all this stuff when it was NEW. I used to drop by on my motorcycle after I got off my shift at the gas station and browse the late-night drug store’s collection. Next to the Main Point in Bryn Mawr, for those locals.]
