Maybe Bale just didn't have enough time to prepare.........
Well, the fact that he acted like an asshole on the set doesn't even bother me as much as some people tend to defend his tirade. The man could've committed rape or bloody murder, and their reaction to "St. Christian Bale" would've been, "No big deal." Personally, I find that rather disturbing. Again, Bale's reaction was over-the-top, juvenile, and unnecessary.
Sure, it may be history to you, and I'm NOT contesting that, but it DID happen, and people have a right to express their opinion on the matter, and that's what I've been doing all along! (Your silly perception of me and my high horse and ivory tower is ridiculous and puzzling.)
I think both of you need to take a step back and think about what you're arguing about.
And then you should both listen to the remix.
I would also point out that your implication of Spiff abusing his position as an admin here to browbeat others into silence was more than a little puzzling.
You both have your opinions and have stated them strongly. Now it's time to move on.
Agreed. I listened to the sound mix as well as the original recording (good sound quality, especially considering they were using state-of-the-art equipment). It would make an interesting ringtone.
You can count on Colbert to make this ten times more fun:
Make sure to watch until the end.
Quite. I'm perfectly capable of browbeating people without the admin title. The title is for kicking out duals and trolls.
And gosh-darned good at it, too. I was 6'5" before you started modding this place.
Good for you ... At least you admit to "browbeating" people.
Frankly, I don't understand why anyone could so worked up over my use of a silly phrase "OMG" and the rolleyes emoticon. I mean, after all, such uses aren't against the BBS rules, at least not to my knowledge. Now if I were the Admin, I might do something about it.
I know. He's a nice guy and all but him and I are done moderating wise.
That's not the topic of the thread is it? I suggest that you return to that stated topic - such as you already had (accent on the past tense) - and leave it at that.
Oh, I see. You want to keep going. It was a joke, genius.
Holy God. So it's not enough to say that people who disagree with you are willing to eat his shit, but now they'd excuse rape and murder, too.
This is what I meant by you projecting. I'm not even defending Bale, I'm defending the other people in this forum whom you've branded as coprophiliac rape/murder apologists because they disagree with you.
This "St. Christian Bale" and "he's teh Batman" crap is what you have decided is the intent behind those who disagree with you. It has no basis in reality; you just made it up in order to denigrate people who disagree with you.
The "high horse" and "ivory tower" comments aren't about your opinion on Bale, they're about what you're saying about those with a different perspective.
Edit: Sorry, Neroon. I was working on this post before you replied. I'll drop it now, because if he's still not getting it, he's not going to.
Those two sentences together are funny.
You made my point so much more succinctly.
Anyway, on a lighter note, as is one of many Internet memes, I ran a transcript of the rant through a few languages on Google Translate, then back to English.
Here are the results:
I like how Bale's name goes through a few changes.
Christ, that reads like a David Lynch script.
Hold the fucking man. To a good shit. Well, let's go back.
So how long until this thread gets closed?
Why would it be closed, if we've moved on to discussing the topic?
Separate names with a comma.
