Today is a day for badassery.  
I'm anxiously waiting for a call back regarding a job interview that I might be having Friday. It's actually a good gig, the hours are good and so is the pay, so I'm crossing my fingers things go over smoothly. *crosses fingers and toes*

Am I the only one that's fed up with all this news surrounding Roman Polanski? The man drugged and raped a child, fled from the authorities and avoided his sentencing, it is so fucking obvious that the man is guilty. He admitted to it. Like, hello, complete no-brainer right there. But those defending Polanski are the ones that I am so pissed off at. Yes, it was thirty years ago that this happened, it still doesn't excuse what he did. It doesn't matter how famous he is or the masterwork he's done in regards to film or how much remorse he's been filled with or whatever else has been spewed over his defense. Rape is rape, and he has to suffer the consequences and take responsibility for his actions. Plain and simple.

In less angering news, happy Supernatural day! And Bones day, now that I'm all caught up I can finally watch it in real time. Awesome. :D

Also, brand new icon in promoting my activism to supporting Dollhouse. It's still mindboggling how low the ratings have been despite how utterly awesome this season is, and how it's going to be. But we won't get that amazingly awesomeness if the ratings continue to drop, because we know very well that FOX are all for the ratings and not so much with the quality + dedicated fanbase, which the Whedonverse definitely has a lot of. It's because of the fanbase, and not the ratings, that got it a second season. That should count for something, right?

Anyway, I'll be spreading my love/support for the show and YOU SHOULD TOTALLY WATCH IT! FOR SERIOUS NOW.

I LOVE BONES SO SO MUCH. :D The Booth/Brennan cuteness is the same for me as the Dean/Castiel cuteness. ♥

Bones was decent. The whole "the 'burbs are WEIRD" thing was a little eh.

it is so fucking obvious that the man is guilty

That doesn't even matter, as he admitted to it at the time. He didn't flee from arrest, he fled from sentencing (which is how there's no statute of limitations on this). I think it was Harvey Weinstein who said that it was his "so called crime" which pissed me off so much. It's not a "so called crime," it's an ACTUAL crime. I hope he goes to jail and gets assraped by gangbangers.

He should go to jail after all he did, and I hate that there are actors and other people thinking that he's the "victim" in this case. Only because of his status in the celebrity world. Please. You commit a crime, you do the time.

good luck with the job sweetie!
It is insane that there is anyone that doubts that Roman Polanski should be paying for a crime he admitted he did!
Renée: Echo. Save Dollhouse.rogueslayer452 on October 9th, 2009 01:02 am (UTC)
Thank you, bb. Keeping my hopes up!

Ugh, I know right? That's the insanity of the whole situation. If he'd been any other regular nameless guy it would've been done and over with no problem. But this is the way of Hollywood, I guess. And that's just depressing and revolting. :/

Good luck, sweetie! :D

You are definitely not the only one frustrated with the Roman Polanski supporters. I don't even understand how they can justify ignoring the fact he raped someone. A 13 year old someone. And he admitted he did it. It is beyond ridiculous that anyone at all is supporting him.

I need to still need to see last week's Dollhouse...
Renée: Echo. Save Dollhouse.rogueslayer452 on October 9th, 2009 02:13 am (UTC)
Thanks bb! :D How've you been lately?

There is no justifying anything he did, and it's unfathomable to me how any person can try to get around the very harsh reality of it. I just don't get it.

It's a good episode bb, and I mean SO FRAKKING GOOD! You'll love it, believe me. :D

I've been good, thank you! :D

Seriously. Ugh, it just makes me mad.

I'm amazed by how many people are supporting Polanski. There was a discussion about it on the radio one day and a caller said that people should just forget it because it was the time of "free love." Yes, those were the exact words he used! So the radio host pointed out what I thought was an obvious fact--that drugging and raping a 13-year-old girl (or anyone for that matter) is not considered "free love," it's a crime! And then he asked if this is how the guy would respond if it was his 13-year-old daughter. The guys response? "It would depend on how she felt about it." This guy should never be allowed to have children. I was so disgusted with him!

I'm watching Bones now!
Renée: Echo. Save Dollhouse.rogueslayer452 on October 9th, 2009 05:31 am (UTC)
That is just, wow. It boggles the mind how some people would freely be so dismissive of such things, and it makes me weep for humanity that there are actual individuals that think like that. "Well, it would depend on how she felt about it." SHE'S A CHILD! SHE WOULD BE TERRIFIED AND YOU SHOULD BE THE PARENT AND STEP IN AND BE, WELL, A MOTHERFUCKING PARENT AND REALIZE THAT IT IS ABSOLUTELY FUCKING WRONG IF ANYTHING LIKE THAT EVER HAPPENED TO THEIR CHILD! COMMON SENSE FOLKS! GAHH! *rages and seethes*

Just, the audacity to even say such a comment like that is sleezy enough, my God. :/

I still have to watch Dollhouse 2x02. Getting it from a friend on Saturday, so hopefully it'll be watched this weekend along with 2x03 :)
Renée: DH. Echo. Blank slate.rogueslayer452 on October 9th, 2009 05:27 am (UTC)
You'll love 2.02, I guarantee it. It's amazingly awesome. :D And, is 2.03 even airing Friday? I heard it's been preempted due to a baseball game.

Ugh. Sometimes I wish I lived in the US so I could watch and support Dollhouse that way. It sucks that the ratings are down because this season has been rockin' so far!

Aw man, I love Bones. I'm glad you're getting into it-it's one of my favourite shows ♥

Good luck with the job call-back! *crosses everything*
Renée: Echo. Save Dollhouse.rogueslayer452 on October 9th, 2009 09:56 pm (UTC)
Well you can watch it online (Hulu and Fox.com, if you can play it where you are) which does count towards the ratings. I'm just baffled because with all the fan campaigns and critic anticipations for getting us renewed the ratings have been so low that it's threatened to be pulled. And this season is MORE EPIC than the last! I mean come on, people!

I've been into Bones for quite some time actually, but I've missed quite a chunk of episodes last season so I've caught up with those and this season so I'm all up to date. :D

Thank you!

I'm still outraged at all the support Roman Polanski is getting. HE RAPED A CHILD. Oh, but apparently that's forgivable if you're TALENTED enough.
