Can I Say That I Think Tyler Perry Is a Lame Horse’s Ass...


...without being accused of racism? Tyler Perry has received the Oprah Winfrey Seal of Approval, and is a definite member of the Oprah Mutual Admiration and Promotion Club. That doesn’t make him all that good. I was suckered into watching "Diary of a Mad Black Woman", and that’s two hours I will never get back (review here). He’s just not that funny. I don’t believe that I’d have to be Black to get the humor either. His abrasive and abusive two-dimensional characters reminded me of my own childhood. They could have been bad caricatures of many German, Polish, and Italian-descended residents there. I guess I’m just not nostalgic enough about that crap to identify with it and laugh. I was not impressed by his portrayal of the Urban Black analog of Granny Clampett either.

Tyler is also part of the never ending advertisement for the Christian church. Hey, convincing people that they need someone else to tell them how to live and be happy can buy you some powerful friends that know how to milk the system. Like Dr. Phil, and Oprah. You know, successful hucksters.

I am currently in Illinois, receiving 40 hours of Adult Education. More regular posts when things slow down a bit.

Heh...Adult Education. It sounds like they are teaching you how to screw or something. They're not trying to do that are they? Someone is bound to get hurt!

That's funny... I just did a post on my own "ethnic heritage..."

Yeah, as far as Oprah etc. goes, it's a shame how everything is about marketing, not quality, when it comes to arts and entertainment and books. Sometimes quality happens to get marketed, but seems more and more rare.

Bloody Hell! I thought that saying "software training" would sound too geeky. Now you've got me doing the nasty with over-the-hill hookers in your head. I wouldn't mind, except that I'm having more fun in your fantasies than I am in real life!

Adult education, eh? I'm pretty sure I've seen that one.


And I didn't see that movie that you mention, but I'm getting a little tired of people dressing up as fat, old ladies and making movies out of them. There's been like 10 of them in the past few years it seems.

Yeah, I had a misfortune of watching of some parts of a couple of his movies and I was appalled by the idiocy of the content and the relentless religious propaganda.

Adult Education was a bad way to say what ever you were trying to say.

I understand why you feel that way about his plays and movies I havent thought of it that way befor and i could see what you mean. Im Pagan and i dont mind watcing it but the being chritian thing is almost pushed into you head watching it like they want you to think it will make you happy.
