While not surprised he would end up here, I was hoping he wouldn't. But alas....

Henry Rollins

Henry Rollins Criticizes Robin Williams and Denounces Suicide in Scathing Column

Quote
Never one to shy away from offending anyone, Henry Rollins is facing a social media backlash after writing a column for L.A. Weekly in which he condemns Robin Williams‘ decision to commit suicide.

Rollins, who said he believed Williams was a “good man” because of his performances for the United Service Organizations, was mostly critical of the late comedian over the effect his suicide will have on his children.

“How in the hell could you possibly do that to your children,” Rollins wrote. “I don’t care how well-adjusted your kid might be — choosing to kill yourself, rather than to be there for that child, is every shade of awful, traumatic and confusing. I think as soon as you have children, you waive your right to take your own life. No matter what mistakes you make in life, it should be your utmost goal not to traumatize your kids. So, you don’t kill yourself.”

Rollins doesn’t question the realities of depression and notes, “Depression is so personal and so unique to each of us that when you’re in its teeth, you think you invented it.” But the former Black Flag and Rollins Band frontman said he can’t respect anyone who makes the decision to take his or her own life.

“I no longer take this person seriously,” he wrote. “I may be able to appreciate what he or she did artistically but it’s impossible to feel bad for them. Their life wasn’t cut short — it was purposely abandoned. It’s hard to feel bad when the person did what they wanted to.”

He also takes it a step further. “When someone negates their existence, they cancel themselves out in my mind,” he wrote. “I have many records, books and films featuring people who have taken their own lives, and I regard them all with a bit of distain [sic]. When someone commits this act, he or she is out of my analog world. I know they existed, yet they have nullified their existence because they willfully removed themselves from life. They were real but now they are not.”

While Rollins’ diatribe has started a larger conversation about suicide, the reaction has largely been negative. Some celebrities have reacted on social media:

In closing his column, Rollins referred to a statistic from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that 40,000 people kill themselves each year. He wrote, “In my opinion, that is 40,000 people who blew it.” Read the entire column here.

I guess Rollins was out of the country or living in a cave to see the backlash Gene Simmons brought onto himself with pretty much the same thought process.

Have we submitted FOX news at any point. Maybe they should be in the hall of fame for constantly being douche

"Take the stairs."

Quote
The new footage of NFL star Ray Rice's brutal knockout of his then-fiancee in an Atlantic City elevator has sparked an impassioned national conversation about the entrapping nature of domestic violence and its long-term psychological effects.

Except on "Fox and Friends," where the big takeaway, according to co-host Brian Kilmeade, was this: "Take the stairs." Kilmeade and co-host Steve Doocy, who chimed in Monday morning with, "The message is, when you're in an elevator, there's a camera, sparked another national conversation about the mindless nature of morning television and its apparent long-term psychological effects of its hosts.

Kilmeade did offer a brief apology at the opening of this morning's program at 6 a.m.: "Comments we made during this story yesterday made some feel like we were taking the situation too lightly," he says. "We are not. We were not. Domestic abuse is a very serious issue to us, I can assure you."

Kilmeade on Monday had also criticized Janay Rice, saying that women who stay with their abusers send a "terrible message" — as opposed to the message sent by celebrated pro athletes with their fists? While domestic violence victims' advocates would much rather focus the conversation on the abusers than their prey, the Ray Rice case — and social media — has spurred victims to speak up for themselves.

Finally....

Meanwhile, Rice herself this morning seemed to blame the media for her "nightmare." Via Instagram, she writes, "To make us relive a moment in our lives that we regret every day is a horrible thing. To take something away from the man I love that he has worked his ass of for all his life just to gain ratings is horrific."

Have we mentioned him before? I forget...

Kanye West

My Response to the Kanye West Disability Debacle

Quote
I was scrolling through my social media feeds Saturday afternoon, when I tripped over the headline: "Kanye West Yells at Wheelchair-Bound Concertgoer to Stand." My issues with use of "wheelchair-bound" notwithstanding (seriously?), I continued reading. We all know that Mr. West makes his money off portraying himself as an egotistical, narcissistic douche-nozzle -- that's his schtick. I get it.

He asked all his fans to stand so he could perform his next hit. When he realized that two fans were Persons with Disabilities (one even going so far as to wave their prosthetic leg as proof -- hilarious), he halted the concert so that his security could confirm this, saying that the only way you were exempt from his command was if you "got and handicapped pass and free parking." This is where things get problematic for me.

As someone who lives with a pretty noticeable disability, and am wheelchair-bound (to use the words of the article. Sounds pretty ridiculous, right?), this incident really struck a chord with me. In the work that I do as a Disability Awareness Consultant, I operate with the knowledge that many people need the tools to understand disability, and that is okay. This incident is proof that Mr. West needs a lot of guidance in this area, and MANY, MANY tools. Or, just that he is a tool.

The bigger issue in context for me is not that Mr. West halted the concert until this person -- just out to have a good time, mind you -- stood up, but that his security guard had to check the veracity of this. It suggests that if you cannot stand up, you are not welcome here. Can you imagine the emotional impact this may have had on that person? To have to prove that you are disabled is one thing, but when you have a multi-million dollar artist and thousands of concertgoers waiting for this proof, that is a whole other level of humiliation and shame. Also, I didn't realize it was a crime to "concert while crippled," if you will.

The biggest mistake I think is that Kanye didn't even see it as a mistake. What would have happened if a security guard needed to verify this person's race, and the concert was stopped until there was a consensus of this person's blackness? Would it have been acceptable then? What authority does Kanye have to subject someone to that?

This is one of the times where I am glad that I cannot stand up on my own, because I would never use what little leg strength I do have in support of such a misguided individual. All I can say to you, Mr. Ye: "I am so appalled. You are f***ing ridiculous."

Idaho Teens Injured in Bizarre Crash



Quote
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A SUV full of teenagers crashed in Idaho after one of the passengers lit the driver's armpit hair on fire with a lighter, authorities said Wednesday.

All five young people in the Ford Bronco were hurt in the crash Sunday and received medical treatment, the Ada County Sheriff's Office said.

Two of the passengers, ages 15 and 16, were thrown from the vehicle, but none of the five suffered life-threatening injuries.

The sheriff's department said the rollover occurred after a 16-year-old boy was goofing off in the front seat and lit 18-year-old Tristian Myers' armpit hair on fire while Myers was driving. The crash happened at about 5:30 a.m. in southeast Boise.

Deputies cited Myers with inattentive driving, while the 16-year-old was cited for interfering with the driver's safety. The passenger's name wasn't released. A 17-year old also was in the front seat but was not cited.

Deputies also said none of the teens was wearing a seatbelt, and there was evidence Myers was driving too fast.

A court date will be scheduled later for Myers, who has no listed phone number. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney.

Maksood (20)

A douche that got himself killed by a wild animal.



Quote
NEW DELHI: In a hair-raising incident, witnessed by scores and captured live on many cameras, a 200kg white tiger mauled and killed a youth after he fell into the animal's moat in the Delhi zoo, eyewitnesses and officials said on Tuesday.

The incident, which took place between 12.30pm and 1pm, created a sensation and word soon spread through the city, with photos and video of the tiger — one of the zoo's star attractions — dragging the youth going viral.

Eyewitnesses and zoo officials said the young man, who was later identified as Maksood, 20, a resident of Anand Parbat in Delhi, had "crossed the stand-off barrier" of the white tiger's enclosure and then fell or jumped into the moat which separated the enclosure from the visitors' gallery.

The majestic six-foot, seven-year-old tiger, named Vijay, which was some distance away, saw the man in the concrete moat, that was covered with dry leaves, and bounded up to him. Footages showed the tiger glowering face to face at the man, as it initially appeared to be surprised on seeing the sudden human intrusion into its habitat.

"As soon as the youth fell into the moat, the tiger approached him and silently watched him for nearly 15 minutes," Bittoo, an eyewitness, who recorded the entire incident on his mobile, told media persons. He said what possibly provoked the tiger to attack the man was when onlookers and a guard tried to divert its attention by pelting stones at it.

Just thinning out the herd... the human herd.
