Sunday morning lazy briefs

Oh, stop, you’re ruining the apartheid narrative! Shimon Peres is leading the charge as Harvard University discusses plans to bring a campus to Rahat, a Bedouin town, where Arab and Jewish Israelis can learn side by side in peace and harmony. You know, like they already do in non-Israeli towns, only this time, American colleges are going to take part in creating Peres’ vision.

See, this is why I want to rent Jack and Jill: No, I really do.

Sandler takes the Three Stooges and Jerry Lewis and dumbs it down, then relentlessly hits you over the head with it while making sounds that almost resemble what you’d hear in the ape house at a zoo. And that’s what’s so great about his films; you don’t need to get wrapped up in characters and hope that they turn out all right. There’s really nothing at all redeeming about Happy Gilmore or the Israeli soldier turned hairstylist in You Don’t Mess With The Zohan, but that’s really the point of his slapstick — it’s a style of comedy that is akin to pornography, in that you don’t watch it for the story, you watch it for the punchline, and in Sandler’s case, he’s either going to make you laugh by literally acting retarded (The Waterboy), or you’re going to sit with your arms folded saying how incredibly stupid his brand of comedy is, and thinking that Sandler is the worst thing to happen to not just the Jews, but humanity itself.

I don’t even need to read it: I can tell you what’s going to happen in Season 2 of Game of Thrones: People will die in bloody, brutal ways. I stopped reading it afte A Storm of Words Swords. Depressing and cruel, yeah, that’s what I want in a book. So nope, not interested. You all have fun without me.
