"I still like the story so far and I want to see the development of the series."
"I think Crazywolf missed my point. He also misused Marley's qoute in a really bad way. I think you've confused artistic creativity with the idea of defacing a beautiful piece. You have to understand it's not being creative when you paint a mustache on the Mona Lisa. It might seem funny, creative, and even damn exciting when you look at it. Some would even put it as being purely infantile. This is not creating art; it's the process of destoying it.
Though I'll keep watching the show to see how things change. I really wouldn't call this change "development" but more of a hack job. You usually get a this when writers start piecing things together. I'm checking for the "collateral damage" after they finish raping this story; this one great idea.
I don't think Bob Marley would have said anything nice concerning this show. He probably would have smoked a "spliff" and cut off his TV."
Then another user, Wolfen, weighed in support of me. Then this moron, azrael_777, resposonded with this:
"How in the world am I using BOB's quote in such a bad way? What have I done that is so offensive? Explain please as I would never wish to portray Bob Marley in any way that is negative. You can also PM me if ya wish to explain in detail or post it on the thread as well."
"Crazy I just reread your post and Azrael's twice........ummm search me.
Insanity and genius usually overlap."
"I apologize Wolfen if my posting wasn't clear. I wasn't saying that the writers were directly using content from the Whedon's world. Though they seem to be focusing in on the vampire cast system. Closely similar to the Buffy and Angel universe. I also posted a reply back to Crazy's on PM that wasn't viewed.
I mostly commented about Marley's up bringing. About him being in fact Bi racial growing up in the slums of Kingston Jamaica. This was at a time of high racial tension. Much of which would have a great deal of impact on Marley's future.
Most of Marley's song were anti establisment but mostly in the sense of "walking in the way of JAH". I think Crazy's reference to the writers having artistic freedom and using Marley's qoutes were a bit off. Marley was singing about the struggle and turmoils of a bigotted society. Most artist, musicians, politicians, and religious figures at the time were silenced for commenting on many of the social conditions of the time. What you have with Blade is the total opposite. It's more like defacing art than creating it. Due to the fact that Blade was already a beautiful painting. It should be at least respected by not mutilating the character.
I can't speak for everyone because everyone is entitled to his or hers own opinion. I think people go along with the crowd these days because of "mass polarization". One guy goes; "hey this is good". So, everyone else goes along with it. Why? They want to be a part of something, they want to be liked or loved, it's peer pressure.
Today we live in a society that doesn't question something because 2 million critics agree. While another faction opposes the system by dressing in black and hating everything. America has become a threshing floor for 'sheep.' Sheep that are looking for shepard to lead them. Now tell me where are our Martin Luther Kings, our Bob Marley's, our Marcus Garvey's, and our Martin Luther Kings now. Fortunatley, for all of us they weren't watching Blade. They were out in the world making history, impacting lives, and being immortalized for centuries to come.
Hopefully, now you can see why I felt that Crazy's qoute was slightly off.
Don't get me wrong - I'm not trying to totally down the show - because in the end it's just a show !!!!!!"
I resposponded by proving I didn't use a Bob Marley quote in reference to Blade the Series or its writers:
"None of your posts are clear and neither is your PM to me. Here is my original post.
'I still like the story so far and I want to see the development of the series.'
Show me how I refer to the writer's in any way using the quote in my signature."
This moron responded by insisting with his false accusations:
"Well, you read all of my postings and you didn't understand them. All I can say is you've proved a point about this society. We have a world full of inspired overeducated fools that can't makes sense out of the simplest essays.
It's not like I'm writing in algebraic linear code, serious pros, or discussing the fundementals of quantum physics. I shouldn't have to keep reqouting my post to make it have sense. If my opinion bothered anyone they should have enough initiative to go back and read my other postings. If this is the case then you may not have the aptitude for anything other than finger painting.
Like I was say before about Polarization - people today don't know how to think for themselves. They want someone else to do the thinking for them. This might explain your limited insight and maybe why so many would think Blade: The Series was just "DAMN FANTASIC".
Those famous persons Marley, King, and Garvey weren't just speaking and singing to be popular. They were people who awakened the public to a world of social injustices and racial division.
These famous men were individualist and activist. They thought outside the box. They lived outside of nomal convenience of worrying about what the next person thought.
It didn't matter if they wrote one song or 10,000 songs. It didn't matter if they did 12,000 marches or just refused to sit on the back of bus. One person that goes against the grain isn't called an artist. This person is called a trend setter a leader. Certainly an artist can be leader or a trend setter. But even without his talent he'd be a leader just the same because he'd always go against the grain.
Qouting them for the sake of trying to make a web posting sound more profound is plain stupid. Because the true meaning behind the qoute doesn't have anything to do with the happenings on this site. Blade is to small of an issue to be mentioned in the same sentence with any of those individuals posted previously. It's pretty damn offensive to even place a qoute here from Marley. Especially when you knew what the guy went through when he made his statements."
The flamer wouldn't even provide any evidence to prove his claims. Although I don't know how he could prove it since I didn't have any quote in my post. Instead he just continued to lie that I used a quote in reference to the Blade Series ranting on and on about a post that I obviously did NOT post. I even quoted myself in another post using that quote button on the forum page to confirm that I had the complete post and there was no quote.
He just kept on going about what Bob Marley represented which is truly ironic since Bob Marley certainly would not condone false accusations or unprovoked attacks. I wouldn't even care about idiocy like this if I had started this but all I did was make a harmless, simple post about wanting to watch a TV show. No quotes, fancy metaphors or clever remarks to provoke some flamer unjustly attacking me. Then after I respond to this sadist's false accusations, he posts:
"Like I said before who really cares.. It ain't that serious!"
"Jesus you people can't we all just get along!!!!!"
If it's not serious, then why falsely accuse me in several posts each written in several paragraphs? I get serious when I am falsely accused and I certainly would not get along with a deranged liar.
CSI gets Bieberized
Bieber wasn't much to get excited about but it's not the worst acting I've seen from anybody. Maybe the director or somebody helped in that area. Bieber is not somebody I would be interested in watching on TV or in a movie anyway.
I was mostly interested to see Sienna Guillory who played the bomb tech, Kacey Monahan. If that is who the previous reviewers were talking about, Sienna Guillory is an actor from the UK. I've heard her speak in interviews and that is her British accent.
The rest of the episode was not interesting to me but not a regular viewer or fan of CSI. This is probably one of ten episodes I have watched over the years. I like the rest of the cast though just not into the show that much.
