    I'm watching the movie Frida, with Selma Hayek. . .and , YES, Salma Hayek's hawtness does make up for it, but in Elementary school I loved the colorful weird imagery of Khalo's paintings.And the movie is the same way too.

    Go ahead and say it. . . Frida Khalo is a Commie, and radicals and baby killing feminists love her (despite her real desire for a child that sadly she never had). I know this.

    Don't care.THE COLORS, MAN. . . THE COLORS. . .



    Anyone else love some one liberals hold dear?

    Context doesn't matter to this liberal it seems/ as long as it satisfies his godless dreams/ like monkeys throwing sh!t as castles in air/ as long as he throws/that is the extent of his care.

    The mural at the Detroit Institute of Art painted by Kahlo's lover, Diego Rivera, is an awesome feat. It covers all four walls of one of the courtyards.

    This is why you weren't supposed to take the brown acid... :D

    I feel your pain on this one. I have the same problem with a lot of entertainers, especially actors and musicians. Bruce Springsteen, for example (although he's made it easier on me by producing much crappier music since his last decent album, which I consider to have been Born in the USA, so I haven't had to keep up with him, and get less exposure to his wingnut views). In fact, it's hard to find a pop act from the last two decades that hasn't disappointed me with their views or antics offstage. OTOH, I'm often pleasantly surprised to find out that an act that I like is conservative (the Ramones, for example). The real tough one for me is Wagner. He's not a lefty, but he was a virulent anti-semite, and it's tough for me to reconcile how much I enjoy his music with my knowledge of his hateful past. Does that count?

    Oh, and now that William Shatner is becoming a liberal scold, I'm kind of bummed. James Kirk was a superbly drawn image of a combat leader, and I learned a lot from his demeanor as a young lieutenant (my platoon sergeant had no idea why I kept referring to our first ARTEP as the Kobiashi Maru :D), and it's hard to imagine that the guy who made that character live is now just another Palin-bashing Hollywood stereotype.

    Wagner is a tough one. It's not my favorite music, but the stories that the Ring cycle are based upon are pretty awesome-Valkries, Rhine Maidens protecting gold, Siegfried, etc.

    For what it's worth, I know some jewish opera fans who are also torn by Wagner, because they love the music.

    I have a hard time with this one. I try to keep politics solely to politics, but I generally find myself unable to stand hollywood libtards. I won't watch Sean Penn or George Clooney movies anymore. Though, I'm still waiting for a Clooney movie worth watching.

    System of A Down is probably the best thing I can think of.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    On the up side, Paul's not an american citizen so he can only do so much damage. Plus, he wrote "Live and Let Die", which is an awesome song (even if the GNR cover is better than Paul's original recording).

    I feel their pain.

    The other thing that kills me are comic books. Most of the writers at DC or Marvel are on the left, so their biases creep into the comics. A few months ago, Ed Brubaker actually had Captain America watching a tea party rally, which was depicted as a bunch of racists, which basically guaranteed that I won't be buying his run on the book.
