Yes, it's another goddam single YouTube link FFP. But I thought this was an amusing send up of all the self-congratulatory bombast and well, gas, that the King of the World generated in the past 60 days. And, hell, it's Monday. Via Techcrunch by way of Gizmodo

when the first sentence in your FPP is defensive it doesn't bode well.

and it didn't.... what are we now the email inbox your mom sends all that forwarded stuff to?

This slides past Geek Humor into Nerd Humor.
That is not a very good place to be at all, I'm afraid.

I saw the cam bootleg. It sucked. The movie is only in 3d, so one would think the bootleg producers would at least have had the courtesy to delete every other frame to give us a 2d version. No such luck.

Avatar is a fantasy about ceasing to be white, giving up the old human meatsack to join the blue people, but never losing white privilege. ... When whites fantasize about becoming other races, it's only fun if they can blithely ignore the fundamental experience of being an oppressed racial group. Which is that you are oppressed, and nobody will let you be a leader of anything.

I'm gonna have to say this is a fantasy about being another SPECIES, not another race.

Cute...and timely. My son saw a boot of the movie before it was released. Crazy.
