When did Johnny Bravo get what he wanted tho
that's what I'm saying....

martin always tries to harass women in the end of the episode and gets punched/kicked/beat up, just because he suffers abuse doesn't mean he doesn't deserve it (despite being a really good agent)

There's always that little tiny table there, tiny computer,
little cramped seats, tiny food, tiny utensils,
tiny liquor bottles, tiny bathroom, tiny sink, tiny mirror, tiny faucet.
So, there's a small problem, there's gonna be a slight delay,
we're gonna be a little late.
I always go in the airplane's bathroom, even if I don't have to go,
I gotta go in there.
It's nice. It's like your own little apartment on the plane, isn't it?
You go in there, lock the door, the light comes on after second.
It's like a little surprise party.
But I'm always impressed of the amount of equipment that they have in that place.
I mean it's little, but they got tissues, towels, closets, compartments,
tiny slot for used razor blades. They always have that.
Who is shaving on the plane?
And shaving so much they're using up razor blades?
Is this what's happening?
What? Is the wolf man flying in there, for Christ's sakes?
Who could shave that much?

Love is blind, they say; sex is impervious to reason and mocks the power of all philosophers. But, in fact, a person's sexual choice is the result and sum of their fundamental convictions. Tell me what a person finds sexually attractive and I will tell you their entire philosophy of life. Show me the person they sleep with and I will tell you their valuation of themselves. No matter what corruption they're taught about the virtue of selflessness, sex is the most profoundly selfish of all acts, an act which they cannot perform for any motive but their own enjoyment - just try to think of performing it in a spirit of selfless charity! - an act which is not possible in self-abasement, only in self-exultation, only on the confidence of being desired and being worthy of desire. It is an act that forces them to stand naked in spirit, as well as in body, and accept their real ego as their standard of value. They will always be attracted to the person who reflects their deepest vision of themselves, the person whose surrender permits them to experience - or to fake - a sense of self-esteem .. Love is our response to our highest values - and can be nothing else.

rate my short story
Ingloriouswho98 delivers once again with a contemporary classic on par with F. Scott Fitzgerald for pure sensory description. A brief, morose tale, 'Death of a Florist' is an ambitious follow-up to the legendary Dreamworks film 'Bee Movie'. It's a dark, tragic tale, contrasting magnificently with the light tone of its animated predecessor. In only 567 words, Ingloriouswho demonstrates an astronomical control of the English language, using vivid techniques to truly bring to life the crushing weight of Barry B. Benson's dreary life. The tonal shift from the film is terrific success, capturing the true pointlessness of existence itself.

Ingloriouswho has created no less than a masterpiece, and surely their work will be remembered for generations to come as the pinnacle of literary accomplishment.

Barry looked out the cold soulless glass of the flower shop window. Raining again. Water falling out of the sky like tears from an orphaned civilization.

"The ten million sheep keep grazing," Barry murmured to himself. "The slime and filth of New York all runs downhill." Benson & Associates didn't take off like Barry dreamed it would. The only clients he got were scumbag addicts who couldn't find their antenna if it was hanging in front of them.

The flower shop door opened, and a mosquito flew in. "Fucking bloodsuckers," Barry grumbled, lighting a cigarette. The flame burned like the embers of a forgotten time. Barry could hardly remember the last time he was happy; working for Honex and spending time with Adam and Vanessa. Adam was now the CEO of Honesco and fired half the bees to save money, and Vanessa hadn't been the same since she started drinking.

"Mr Benson, hello?" The mosquito buzzed around Barry. "Oh god, I need your help. PLEASE!"

Barry took another drag from his cigarette and rolled his eyes. "What is it, asshole?" He couldn't stand insect filth who wasted his time.

Time. Like the gears of a machine, turning in place, never reaching a conclusion. Barry's time never ended. He had prayed for death before, but no one answered. He used to believe in God, but now God was like a moat flowing through a windmill.

The mosquito put its face in its hands. "Oh god...the kids...Elaine...they're all dead."

"Let me guess, you got drunk and flew into a rage." The rain kept coming.

"What? God no, Barry. It was...it was a car accident. The SUV pulled out in front of me, I had no time to react!"

Barry scoffed. "Yeah right, punk. Let me guess, you were on the pipe again?"

"No Barry, I'm off that stuff! You've gotta believe m-"

Suddenly a giant bare foot came down in front of Barry, crushing the mosquito. Barry looked up and saw Vanessa smirk at him, sangria in her hand. Then she silently walked away.

"What a bitch," Barry thought.

The rest of the day dragged on. Barry smoked cigarette after cigarette. He would've tried to steal some of Vanessa's liquor, but he knew the consequences if he was caught. He looked out the window again. The city was slowing down, falling asleep. Robots following their programming. Spurred on only by the promise of a divine reward.

"Cowards," Barry thought. He took another puff and coughed. The smoke had completely filled his tiny bee body. He doubled over in pain and fell to the hardwood floor. The floor was as cold as a drinking a glass of water after you chew a piece of mint gum. Except way colder than that.

Barry felt enormous pain as he started to succumb to tobacco poisoning. He saw Vanessa stumble into the room and make eye contact with him. She was holding a bottle of vodka now.

"Vanessa...kill me." Barry pleaded.

Vanessa just laughed at his plight and left the shop.

"Wh...what a bitch..."

Barry couldn't take the pain anymore. He had to end it. He crawled over to the couch and took a deep breath before plunging his stinger into the fabric. The pounding rain coming from the sky started to subside into a light drizzle. As the stinger left his body, Barry sighed in relief. It would all bee over soon.

As long as he did nothing illegal then I have more respect for any platform that doesn't ban him or Infowars. I may not care for Alex Jones but I do like when any site upholds the values of freedom of expression even though they aren't legally required to.
Exactly, and this is the answer to that regurgitated XKCD comic verb posted. No one here is a lawyer - we're not arguing constitutional law. We're arguing ethics and morality. Just because something is legal doesn't make it right.

Marketing
On February 4, 1997, Disney began its marketing campaign by starting a five-month promotional traveling tour, called Disney's Hercules Mega Mall Tour Sponsored by Chevy Venture, throughout 20 cities starting first in Atlanta, Georgia. Previously used for the marketing campaigns for Pocahontas and The Hunchback of Notre Dame, the tour featured eleven attractions including a multimedia stage show, a miniature carousel themed to Baby Pegasus, a carnival with Hercules-themed game booths, and a ten-minute animation workshop hosted by animator Andreas Deja where visitors would try their hand at drawing Hercules.[48][49][50]

On June 14, the premiere of the film was accompanied with an electric light parade held in Times Square. The parade of electrified floats traveled from 42nd Street to Fifth Avenue and 66th Street with included attendees such as Lauren Hutton, Harvey Keitel, Andy Garcia, Barbara Walters, Michael Bolton, and Marilu Henner, as well as Olympic athletes who later rode on thirty floats in the parade.[51] The media event was not without controversy as former New York mayor Ed Koch objected to surrendering the city over Disney, and critics raising questions about what politicians are willing to give a private firm in return for investment.[52] Also, nearly 100 members of National Association of Broadcast Employees and Technicians used the occasion to strike for a new contract from Disney/ABC,[53] with local union president Tony Capitano who complained that "I think the Mayor gave away the city to Disneyland", and 5,000 businesses and residents who felt unusually eerie upon being asked to dim their lights as the parade passed.[54] Following the parade, a private party was held at the Chelsea Piers complex, where dinner guests was served to a performance of Susan Egan singing songs from the movie along the Hudson River, and ten minutes of fireworks display.[51]

Additionally, the film was accompanied with a marketing campaign with promotional tie-ins with 85 licensees including McDonald's, Mattel, Nestlé, Hallmark[55][56][57] and various merchandise.[58] Hercules was also received the first Disney on Ice adaptation before the film was theatrically released.[59]

Imagine people being this unabashedly into this project, isn't there something awesome about the old ways we would market movies?

Now it's "stick Elsa on an umbrella, put Maui in a happy meal, and call it a day."

41 shots, and we'll take that ride
Across the bloody river,
to the other side
41 shots, cut through the night
You're kneeling over his body in the vestibule
Praying for his life

Is it a gun?
Is it a knife?
Is it a wallet?!
This is your life!
It ain't no secret (it ain't no secret)
It ain't no secret (it ain't no secret)
No secret my friend
You can get killed just for living in your American skin

41 shots, Lena gets her son ready for school
She says, "On these streets, Charles...
You've got to understand the rules."

"If an officer stops you, promise me you'll always be polite
And that you'll never ever run away...
Promise Mama you'll keep your hands in sight"

Is it a gun (is it a gun), is it a knife (is it a knife)

'Cross this bloody river to the other side
41 shots, I got my boots caked with this mud
We're baptized in these waters (baptized in these waters)
And in each other's blood (and in each other's blood)

not interested in discussing how realistic things are in an alternate universe disney cartoon w/ magic carpets and genies
This is always a weird argument. Yes, some narrative universes have aspects that are more ridiculous than ours, but any good universe is internally consistent. Look at Harry Potter, it's crazy to us that there's magic, vampires, and mythical creatures, but the universe makes sense with the rules it created. Aladdin is the same way, and at first it looked like Genie didn't grant Aladdin's wish at all (breaking the rules they set up for their universe), but he in fact did, just in a clever way.

oh boy it's almost as if these things don't matter cos it's a cartoon
Imagine thinking this hard about a fucking children's cartoon
hahaha I knew these posts were coming

Disney is an awesome company and they write great stories, they intend their films for children and adults
Walt Disney was a pedophile nazi
That's great!

He's dead, you know!
He was the company. When he was alive was when most of the cartoons were made, and there were a lot of visual references to Hitler and Nazis, as well as a lot of other racist portrayals of different races. One that comes to mind is the beginning of Dumbo where the black workers building the circus in the rain are portrayed as these large almost gorilla like figures with big lips and small eyes.

So no, I wouldn't call Disney a great company and a lot of their work is highly overrated, to the point where the stuff I just mentioned is overlooked or outright ignored because of their "classic" status or that "it was a different time".
Well, it was. Do we discredit all art because the artist was born in a bad time, and that time is reflected on their work? Besides, the golden age of Disney occured well after his death (late 80s-current).

I'm trying to figure out what year Aladdin is set in

No cars, guards use swords... but the Genie turns into what looks like a german submarine


that's part of what makes the Genie so surreal, otherworldly, and powerful - he's the only character in the film that makes those anachronistic references to things that haven't happened yet
