Michael Shannon: Dancing Monkey Flings Poo.



Yes, the election is all I’ve been thinking about. How are you holding up?
I’m on tenterhooks here. I have two young children. Basically this man is probably going to destroy the earth and civilization as we know it. It’s kind of terrifying.

I’ve been alternating between feeling energized, stoked to fight against everything he and his supporters stand for, and utter despair, because I’m not convinced anything I do can actually effect change.
That’s the thing: These protests are so moving, but ultimately what are they going to accomplish? I’m so glad these kids on the campuses everywhere are going ape s—, but at the end of the day the guy’s still going to be president. Maybe you need a civil war or something.

Listen Bunky, you were supposed to be pressing the flesh for the movie you are on, you know, what you do to make a living? What on Earth are you doing making sure that half the income due to the producers and people who worked the film does not come in?

It gets even weirder:

I’m not even sure how to bust things up. We have to invent a new way.
There’s a lot of old people who need to realize they’ve had a nice life, and it’s time for them to move on. Because they’re the ones who go out and vote for these assholes. If you look at the young people, between 18 and 25, if it was up to them Hillary would have been president. No offense to the seniors out there. My mom’s a senior citizen. But if you’re voting for Trump, it’s time for the urn.

Politically-based euthanasia, well that is nice. Of course, all things being equal, that would mean I can apply my own political filter and execute those who disagree with my political views… but that would be rude and insensitive and probably send this particular Dancing Monkey under the bed while dialing 911 and making a plane reservation to Canada online.


My parents voted for Trump and I’m still not sure how to talk to them about that.
F— ’em. You’re an orphan now. Don’t go home. Don’t go home for Thanksgiving or Christmas. Don’t talk to them at all. Silence speaks volumes.

That is the Thanksgiving spirit. People think I am blowing things out of proportion when I say there is a significant portion of the population that have no issues having us killed. I don’t know how else to convince them that lives are in danger because these petulant children were raised without a smidgen of morality or respect for others.

So the movie you need to miss (because it is stupid to feed money to those who insult you and want you dead) is called Nocturnal Animals and it is probably being shown at some movie theater somewhere. Go watch something else.

  1. I’ve absolutely no idea who that guy is. I must be old. I guess I should get my urn. Or, you know, live my my life without giving 2 f**ks about him.


  2. I’ve heard from a friend that “Arrival” is wonderful. And I believe that “Hacksaw Ridge” is still out there. Thanks for the heads up. I believe the last time I let a film star determine my actions was when you wrote about Liam Neeson speaking out about Americans owning too many guns and Para Ordinance disassociating itself from any future movies with him in it.
    As a result, I got on one of those evil online gun stores and ordered a 14-45 Black Ops and had it delivered to my nearest equally evil kitchen gun dealer. It’s now my every day carry piece.


    At the time they had a version that came with a threaded barrel, which I didn’t buy because I figured that Minnesota would be one of the last states to legalize suppressors. And as a punishment for my belief, Minnesota legalized suppressors the very next session after my purchase.


  3. I bet he’s a gun hater too. Why is it that the ones that hate gun are always the ones demanding that violence be done for whatever the cause du jur is?

    On the plus side, I won’t be going to see his or any of the other dancing monkey’s movies. The only movies I’ve seen in years are usually kids movies when I take the grand sons. Except for the last Star Wars (I’ve always been a fan).

    If enough people stayed away from these idiots movies, I wonder how long it would be before they had to get real jobs. Preferably something that involves a shovel and a wheelbarrow.
