    Noticing your location, I think my family and I drove through Wichita last year when we were on vacation. We stayed a few days in OKC and then drove up to see the Wizard of Oz museum in Wamego.
    Nice! If you're ever in the area again, shoot me a message.

Of course, the poor bastard that I got on the phone apologized profusely and told me that they are rolling it back to the previous skin by 5/31 and to be patient with them during the process!!! lol I asked her to inquire with her superiors would they be patient with me if I decided to withhold partial payment until they worked things out on their end? Of course, now way. I then petitioned for credits which are "being taken under consideration" and they will get back to me!!lol



    Mine updated this morning, and it doesn't seem to be a big deal. In fact, there are a feature or two that are better.
    I find it hard to believe they are rolling it out now, only to roll it back in 2 weeks.


    As with many things that are new, people freak out.

    You can hear both of you focus on the bass of the voice for ďlaurelĒ and the chipmunk-sound of the voice for ďyanni.Ē Interesting but what difference will it make in my life? Nothing probably.

    People always seem so surprised to discover that someone who makes art which appeals to them might differ from them in a substantive way.

    "What? How can someone who writes such good music not eat cheeseburgers?"

    I agree but not eating cheeseburgers is a far cry from antisemitism, racism, pedophila, violence and all around jerkiness.

    I love the work these writer's produced but that doesn't mean I must love the person themselves, does it?

    It sure is; I was taking a short-cut in making my point. However, "different" is the first step to "terrible" (I'm sure that, if I watched that video, I'd have seen some things termed "terrible" that I'd find merely different and not terrible, and no doubt there are some who would call me terrible because I do eat cheeseburgers).

    I'm quite happy not knowing anything about my art heroes' personal thoughts any more than I have to.

    Of course not; I think it means we should recognize the "love" as kind of a "wow, you're cool" type of thing, but not a "I will follow you into the fire" kind of thing. For example, I know it's wrong, but I believe I would run into a live volcano if Kevin Garnett told me to. I just have to recognize that I don't actually know him as a person; I just know him as an inspiring Boston Celtic.

    Same with King and all the other artists I like, living and dead.

    But I do think, as I said, people always seem so surprised, when they really shouldn't.

    Maybe we sense a kind of insight in these people (particularly writers) and assume they "get it" (which loosely translates to "agrees with me") with regard to other issues, when they don't. It may feel surprising, but it shouldn't actually be surprising.

    I didn't know much about Dahl and Orwell so those two really did surprise me. I mean of all people, you'd think Orwell would have recognized the hypocrisy of his actions.

    I could never get past what Michael Jackson did. I know a lot of people still think thereís nothing wrong with listening to his music despite the fact that he was a monster, but I always thought of it as a means of supporting his sickness, and contributing to the destruction of some kidís life. Now that heís dead, I guess I donít think of it that way anymore, but I still change the station if his music is playing.

    It's a tricky subject. Years ago, Ruggero Deodato visited a local convention and even when a part of me wanted to meet him, the other part prevailed. He killed animals during the filming of Cannibal Holocaust and for me that's a limit. I also stopped listening to a local band after a tragedy years ago (they oversold the place and it got on fire, killing a lot of people)...and at the same time, I still watch movies by Woody Allen and Roman Polansky...and my all time favorite actor is Kevin Spacey.

    It is a tricky subject because we all have our lines. I am much like you in that there are some artists I've learned things about that prevent me from enjoying their work and some other artists I've learned horrible things about but I can still enjoy their work. I feel like a hypocrite myself sometimes because of that.

    Dude when I found out those animals were real I got sick to my stomach. That turtle scene haunts me sometimes. And now that Iím thinking about it, Iím wondering if that guy actually ate the muskratís intestines. And now Iím wondering if that was real cocaine they gave him. He seemed too authentic to be an actor.

    I wonder what (if anything) will happen to Jared Leto's status as a teenage heartthrob now that it's finally coming out he fucks underage girls. I posted about that years ago on here and there was a general lack of replies. My concert promoter bud told me Leto demands only underage girls be sent to his dressing room.

    I can't really complain about animals being butchered on screen when I eat meat myself. Apocalypse Now has a butchered cow scene and part of me thinks that it's OK in the name of art. But then I get mad about big game/trophy hunters. I'm all over the place on that one.

    Oh Iím a complete hypocrite in that regard. Rarely go a day without eating meat. Still, seeing the butchering disturbs me. Funny that I enjoy reading horror books and watching horror movies but canít stomach violence when itís real.

    I've been able to separate my enjoyment of an artist and their works, whether a musician, actor or author, from their personalities, politics or behavior.. I've been that way for as long as I can remember. If that seems hypocritical, so be it.

    I donít see how that would make you a hypocrite. At least from my perspective it doesnít. The only way Iíd not be able to separate the two is if Iíd indirectly be supporting something like pedophelia or things along those lines.
