Fairweather Friends

I was never really into Friends BUT I wasn’t a Friends hater , it was what it was ..Well meaning, well crafted light entertainment. Anyway, the cast break up and go out into the show biz world…Some surviving better than others

The decades pass..Now suddenly along comes a “Reunion” show for HBO MAX. To many this is an exciting moment, Friends was hugely successful and birthed millions of hardcore fans.

However, as science states, every action causes a reaction..Thus, to counter the ocean of love for the show, comes an ice age of hate. The reason given, for not meeting todays moral, social standards and. of course, the examples they give are so daft..

“Chandler Kept being worried about being gay” – they say this shows he was anti gay . Fine, in 2021 that kinda storyline MAY border on using “gay” in a pejorative way.

But I say, so what .. .Do we all have to want to be gay now? Do we have to pretend some people who are gay would rather not be gay and do we have to pretend, Hetero males aren’t at times, comically terrified of becoming gay. These are facts of life, its better to laugh at them that to pretend you are more emotionally sophisticated than we are

It has been argued that pop culture has become SO gay , its completely shallow and lacking. . I don’t fully agree with that BUT there is room for agreement in aspects. More than that though and this is whats worrying me..

The show wasn’t being homophobic in the least,It was anti being anti gay, the joke WAS ON Chandlers character for being so up tight and worried about being gay..THAT WAS THE JOKE Even 8 year olds in the 90s, saw this was a joke .. The fact adults don’t is scary.

WE live in idiot Times

Phoenix Nights

Some people are so predictable.
Joaquin gives a heart felt speech and an incel sea of bitterness fills social media.

I can understand it, there are a lot of fakes out there.. People who ride the wave of “identity politics” and glamour chase worthy causes merely for PR.
Fickle, dumb empty people.. Like Anal Hathaway.. A wonen who claimed to be veggie but kept getting caught eating burgers
.. Or Sam Smith a guy who says hes “gender fluid” but then admits to not even knowing what the tern means
Or the many stars who make ethical speeches only to go and act unethically, cheating on wives, blah blah blah . Claiming to be healthy and then snorting whatever comes their way etc etc

In Joaquins case none of this applies hes been fighting the good fight for years.
Personally I always liked him, I could see he carries alot of trauma… Theres a sadness of truth about him..
Daniel Day Lewis has it as well..

I see he’s been accused of being, “Woke” (in the derogatory sense of the word) .. I don’t think the people who use that term know what it means.
“Woke” is a term that was meant to mean enlightened.. Able to see the game-so, in that sense he is . But then quickly became a cynical political philosophy, where spit, ego, attention seeking and blatant fascism slide in the hashtag slipstream of ethical causes- this is what the professionally cynical and the permanently snide are saying he is but this is what he isn’t.

Joaquin is not part of that, he has the attention he could use it for many things.. He uses it to fight bullying, which is what racism, homophobia and animal abuse is.
He (and his family) have been doing it for decades.
Also, He actually took aim at the broken woke, when he talked about being against cancel culture.
Cancel culture is one of “Wokes” main disciplines, if not malicious aim

You know he could of went further when he attacked dairy.
Once the cow is the victim of artificial insemination, not only is the new born calf snatched from the, visibly upset, mother and the milk that is meant for the calf stolen by humans but humans then kill the calf, the mother is often near by and can hear the screams. Once the dairy cow reaches a certain age and stops producing milk, they kill her too.
To know this and to still partake in that process takes either serious heartless selfishness or nuclear grade cognitive dissonance
