  • Consumers are overwhelmed by streaming options, but aren't cutting back

    “Television is chewing gum for the eyes” - Frank Lloyd Wright

    one of many great Wright quotes.   The point being,  be careful how you spend your time when you could be doing other things. That said,  having streaming services is a good thing. But it’s only worth so much time and money.

    So,  I agree that it was not a good look for Will Smith what happened that night of the awards. But, at the same time we’re talking about a guys wife and she is dealing with some medical issue is what I’ve heard.  Really don’t spend time following actors that much as my own time is more valuable, but that is the info on this I believe.  There is a line there and I understand that he reacted.  If given more time to think about it in a non public place, maybe that would have been different.   Will apologized for his part in what happened.  I’m not sure I agree with him stepping down or resigning.  It’s at the point today where men can no longer be men,  everything has to be an act or show in and of itself and be politically correct.  I think The apology is enough and people and big companies like Apple and Netflix need to accept that.  
    One word: BATTERY. He committed battery. I wonder if those close to you would agree with your “men can no longer be men” dribble. By far the dumbest statement ever. Please stay single your entire life. 
    Thank you so much for your insult.  Obviously you are much better than me. 

    Based on your logic, should Will Smith now get divorced and stay single the rest of his life?   He apologized and he stopped at
    the slap.  It was not even a punch.  It’s over.  I feel that the other guy Chris Rock is just as much to blame with his atrocious idea of what humor is.
    He was hostile to you, we can see that, but I have a non-hostile question for you. Would you feel the same way if Will Smith and slapped a white Oscar Host that hard (eg, Jimmy Kimmel)? Or a woman (eg, Amy Schumer)? Or an adult in a wheelchair (eg, Liza Minelli)? 
    I have to wonder if I should even respond since you now  include race\ethnicity here.   Things were between two men.  Race does not matter, nor should it. Your fantasy scenarios  are much different situations.  A guy hitting a woman is unacceptable and also somebody in a wheelchair is unacceptable regardless of that persons gender.   What we saw was somebody make fun of a medical condition that Will Smith’s wife has.  That is pretty low as far as I am concerned.  If the wife did not have to deal with that, it would have changed the whole thing.  Who knows the inner hurt she may be dealing with.  They went there to enjoy an evening there and instead had to deal with such hurtful words and situation all in the public eye.  Regarding user named “skeptical” who thinks they have some authority or right to tell me how to live my personal life,  I will not be responding to any further posts from them.  There is no reason to waste my time responding to somebody like that.

    You really don't understand. 
    It's a physical aggression in the front of millions spectators’s eyes. Since Will Smith is a role model, his reaction can be seen by many people as the only way disputes between people could be solved. And that's called - anarchy!
    But he did apologize.  I guess that does not mean anything?  Look at the irony of all the violence that is part of tv shows and movies over and over everyday.  You will say it is fiction, but look at that nevertheless.   I think I’m done responding to this topic.
    You have managed to be  misogynistic  and think fictional violence is worse than real violence. Probably for the best that you stop talking. That hole is only getting deeper. 
    Yes, tv shows and movies are fictional.  Of course real violence is worse.  Do you think making fun of somebody’s medical or health issues is okay?  That is the whole point of why Will reacted that way in the heat of the moment.  This Chris Rock guy had most likely planned his so called humor well in advance and he thinks it is okay.  He had plenty of time to consider his “jokes”.  Well,  some people don’t think it is okay.  I don’t know if Chris rock apologized too.

    Dr. Dre threw a woman down a flight of stairs in public and then joked about it and Tim Cook loves him.
    Really?  If that is true than that is a disgrace and not a good look for Cook if he is aware of this.
