Comment on a Movie

I just saw i {heart} huckabee's. Me - I really liked it. I understand that some people might/may not, but I really did. What I took away from it was, "However you get there, it's best when people are decent to each other, and that's possible." Which is not profound, but is, I think, a lot more difficult to convey and less hackneyed than it sounds at first.
I would certainly encourage people to see the film. David O. Russell is a first-rate talent as a director, and though he's apparently an apeshit-insane-asshole (there was an NYT profile of the making of the film a month or so back; can't find the link, lemme know if anyone can) when making a film, he did manage to get really terrific performances out of a cast of very good actors.
Anyhow, it was thoroughly absorbing and got me out of the "8-Days-Oh-My-God-Just-Let-it-Be-Over" for a while, which is good.
Oh, and if you want to reach near-homicidal levels of rage, read this (or, really, anything that Jodi writes, but this especially). Otherwise stay far, far away.

Comments:
While most of the article could be described as 'truly maddening' I would like to stand up for the South Side and point out that the South Shore Cultural Club which she has booked for the big day is awesome and a few blocks from my house. Late night renditions of the Electric Slide were a staple of our high school Winter Dances. I wish Jodi the best.
 
to recap...

someone is willingly placing their naked body next to Jodi's. On purpose. Not for NY Times fear factor, or who wants to seduce a troll...but for real. Strange, that.
 
Hey, be fair - she does say that she lost 25 lbs.
What's more perplexing is why anyone would want to spend the rest of their life with an awful, petty bitch of a woman.
 
i think it's important to expose the truth, but what are we exposing here? knowing the pettiness of one woman's heart is not what i need to know to survive in this joint. i need to know why the fuck this is happening:

At the request of the CIA, the Justice Department drafted a confidential memo that authorizes the agency to transfer detainees out of Iraq for interrogation -- a practice that international legal specialists say contravenes the Geneva Conventions. --WaPo
 
I'm not commenting on her appearance. I'm commenting on her hatefilled approach to life. This is a person who was rude to Harvard. Someone has actively and consciously chosen to pick, from all the women and other sentintient beings in the world Jodi--and I just wonder why. I'm glad that she and he have found one another--everyone deserves the right to love and be loved. I'm just saying I don't know how you'd begin to start with her.
