Buffy Summers (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) vs Edward Cullen (Twilight) )

Buffy rocks.
"Twilight" can go suck on a stale bag of O Neg and perish quickly into the aether never to return.

This is of course, memed everywhere.

This the text that accompanies this brilliant remix at the link:
In this remixed narrative, Edward Cullen from the Twilight Series meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer at Sunnydale High. It's an example of transformative storytelling serving as a visual critique of Edward's character and generally creepy behavior. Seen through Buffy's eyes some of the more patriarchal gender roles and sexist Hollywood tropes embedded in the Twilight saga are exposed in hilarious ways. --- This transformative work constitutes a fair-use of any copyrighted material as provided for in section 107 of the US copyright law.

Hey remember my post Satire for the Masses which has lyrics to the "Hasbarah Hip Hop".

Well, I've finally found the video for our pleasure on Youtube!

The Israeli Socio-Political Satire show Eretz Nehedret - ארץ נהדרת - lit. Wonderful Country is probably one of the sharpest, most biting, satires on television today.
They are definitely up there (at least in my book) with "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report".

On this week's show they had a sketch of hip-hop Hasbarah (Hebrew for "explanation" and what is colloquially known as Israeli for describing the efforts of explaining Israeli government policies, and to promote Israel to the world at large)

The video is brilliant - but unfortunately cannot be embedded at this time, so I've put the direct link here and translated the lyrics which are a mixture of Hebrew and English (everything emphasised is me translating the Hebrew/Hebrish terms)
Link to Video: It's Time for a War Anthem.
Lyrics under the cut )

So biting and true!
Though, I acknowledge... it may only be funny for the Israelis and other Hebrew speakers here.

Yes, I'm posting the video as well.

As if I wouldn't.

More blogging about Democracy (and the lack thereof) forthcoming.

Well... heh... just watch the video (as if you haven't already seen it elsewhere and five hundred times before).

Sometimes it's just hard to believe that The Daily Show isn't regarded as a real News magazine when the entire Fox News channel doesn't even need to be parodied.

Messrs Stewart and Colbert just need to sit back and let those Right-Wing pundits talk and dig and dig and dig...

I love The Daily Show, I find Jon to be one the funniest men in television today.
Here's a small portion of Mr. Stewart handing the asses of McCain, Obama and Clinton back to them in the shape of brisket.

Though really it's just a response to the whole "God billboard" thing that you can find (mainly) in the US. We also have those, though they're not as, um, how you say? I dunno, theses billboards make it seem as though God were an actual person, and not a spiritual entity.

Though, I guess the whole Jesus thing kinda makes it easier to pretend God was/is/whatever a person.

This video was created by Mario DiGorgio of whom I'd never heard before. I first saw it here and [ profile] morin brought it my attention, so kudos to her!.

Must share!

Okay, I'm not American and I'm following the campaigns only peripherally.

But one of the blogs I read linked to this: The GOP Primary Field in Buffy Villains.

And OMG! So True!

I urge you all to read it if you're American and/or just a Whedonverse!fan of the Buffy persuasion.

Hamas and Yesha don't like Peace talks.
We shall see.

I don't really care about Bush's speech beyond the joint statement I looked into already, so I'll spare the observations on that one. But below are Olmert's and Abbas', which can be found without interruption by me here

Israeli PM Ehud Olmert )

PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas )

End of Speech commentary.

I know it seems like I think this thing has no hope, but Bush, Olmert and Abbas don't have a whole lot of support from their respective people, and so far it looks like they're saying a lot of how much willingness all the parties have, but I don't know how much everyone is willing to do what needs to be done in order to accomplish a true truce, if not peace.

And that means it's Towel Day (In Memory of Douglas Adams Z"L), take a towel wherever you go and be prepared for anything wherever you are.

It's also fictional holiday found in Terry Pratchett's excellent Discworld novel "Night Watch" when the Treacle Mine Road Uprising Memorial Day, where we fight for Truth, Justice, Freedom, Reasonably Priced Love and a Hard Boiled Egg!

Here's the body of the text for the link-phobic.
Yet Another Conspiracy by Carol Hatfield )

It's pretty clever!

It's the Treacle Mine Road Uprising Memorial Day!
Any of you who has read Night Watch by Terry Pratchett was there and knows that we must fight for Truth, Justice, Freedom, Reasonably Priced Love and a Hard Boiled Egg.
Join me in Remembrance and wear a lilac.

See how they rise up!

V and Justice

V: Ah, I was forgetting that we are not properly introduced. I do not have a name. You can call me V. Madam Justice...this is V. V... this is Madam Justice. hello, Madam Justice.

Justice: Good evening, V.

V: There. Now we know each other. Actually, I've been a fan of yours for quite some time. Oh, I know what you're thinking...

Justice: The poor boy has a crush on adolescent fatuation.

V: I beg your pardon, Madam. It isn't like that at all. I've long admired you...albeit only from a distance. I used to stare at you from the streets below when I was a child. I'd say to my father, "Who is that lady?" And he'd say "That's Madam Justice." And I'd say "Isn't she pretty."

V: Please don't think it was merely physical. I know you're not that sort of girl. No, I loved you as a person. As an ideal.

Justice: What? V! For shame! You have betrayed me for some harlot, some vain and pouting hussy with painted lips and a knowing smile!

V: I, Madam? I beg to differ! It was your infidelity that drove me to her arms!

V: Ah-ha! That surprised you, didn't it? You thought I didn't know about your little fling. But I do. I know everything! Frankly, I wasn't surprised when I found out. You always did have an eye for a man in uniform.

Justice: Uniform? Why I'm sure I don't know what you're talking about. It was always you, V. You were the only one...

V: Liar! Slut! Whore! Deny that you let him have his way with you, him with his armbands and jackboots!

V: Well? Cat got your tongue? I though as much.

V: Very well. So you stand revealed at last. you are no longer my justice. You are his justice now. You have bedded another.

Justice: Sob! Choke! Wh-who is she, V? What is her name?

V: Her name is Anarchy. And she has taught me more as a mistress than you ever did! She has taught me that justice is meaningless without freedom. She is honest. She makes no promises and breaks none. Unlike you, Jezebel. I used to wonder why you could never look me in the eye. Now I know. So good bye, dear lady. I would be saddened by our parting even now, save that you are no longer the woman I once loved.
