I know I’m not being a posting machine; it’s only cause I have a lot of stuff going on, & have no time. I get up early in the morn for work, don’t really return home until 10 pm (or later, or the next day sometimes), & have barely anytime to do anything. I’m thankful for the day off work tomorrow b/c it means I can do laundry & have some clean clothes again. I’m also thankful for Mr. T, cause he did all my dirty, dirty dishes. And there were quite a few.
Even though I’m not posting, I’m still reading y’all’s blogs & the news. So, I saw an article about Oliver Stone requesting to make a documentary about Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Well, the Iranian prez rejected the offer b/c Stone is part of “Great Satan” cultural establishment.
The media advisor to the Prez said, “I sent a negative answer by Ahmadinejad to Oliver Stone…. It is right that this person is considered part of the opposition in the U.S., but opposition in the U.S. is a part of the Great Satan.“
This is all fine & good. If someone thinks someone else is a Great Satan, then of course they would want nothing to do w/ that person.
*total sidenote: I think I’m really digging that term “Great Satan”… there’s this whore that I completely hate (like really hate as a human being, seriously). And, I have a name I call her, but it’s way worse than whore (whore being the more publishable word; & no, it doesn’t involve the ‘f’ word, it’s waaaay worse). But I think I will also start to refer to her as a “Great Satan”.
Anyway, the whole point of this post is what Oliver Stone said in response. I found it quite funny.
“I have been called a lot of things, but never a great satan. I wish the Iranian people well, and only hope their experience with an inept, rigid ideologue president goes better than ours.“
The pic to the left is of from Feb 2002 when Stone spent 3 days w/ Fidel Castro for his documentary of him, Comandante. I think it’s a cool looking picture. And the pic above is my montage of finger pointing that cracks me up. It’s really only there for me, b/c I’m sure no one else will find it as funny as I do.
