Did you not read the book Endless Love?
The guy who does the narration throughout (and burns his girlfriend's house) talks about going down on his girlfriend, describes the scene, when she was having her period, and he gets a clump of blood (dried) and he chews on it and more.
I picked that book up when I was somewhere around 13 and did so because I love Diana Ross and I like Lionel Richie. They had the huge hit "Endless Love" (number one for nine weeks long before I was listening to the top 40) which is an endless classic. And so I was primed to the book for that reason. When I found the paperback at a second hand store, I grabbed it and didn't even know that it had been a movie (Diana and Lionel recorded the theme song for the movie -- Lionel wrote the song) starring Brooke Shields. But it is a bad book. Juvenile to the extreme and more of that 'man is victim' when, reality, he was the victimizer.
It was also like a big gob of spit on the sixties which is another reason I hated the book.
I did follow the livestream of the World Can't Wait event tonight. I had signed up to cover Ethan McCord. I can't.
I heard the questions Elaine B. and Debra S. asked him. But there was an echo when he spoke and also a sort of electronic squeal and I couldn't understand him.
I'm sure he was amazing. That's why I picked him. But I just couldn't hear what he was saying, sorry. Now there will be a DVD made of this event (to raise awareness of and money for Bradley Manning) that World Can't Wait will sell and I'm sure Ethan will be easier to understand on that because they'll probably have him plugged into the sound board. Whereas on the livestream, he's echoing and the connection is bad.
In my section, Debra Sweet made the statement that if Bradley Manning is successfully defended on these charges then it will encourage others to speak out.
And Ethan agreed and said something that sounded like free speech is dead or dying if we don't speak out. And then he started talking about being in Iraq. I wish I could have heard him. He also, I think, talked about Iraqis at another point and if I was able to, I would write what he said. But I think he wrote a letter to an Iraqi. In case I'm wrong, I'll leave it at that. But it was a pretty cool letter from the every few words I could hear.
Michael Moore's kissed Barack's ass one time too many for my tastes so I don't link to his site but I will link to Ethan's blog posts at his site so you can find out more about Ethan McCord if you don't know about him.
