A friend of mine is a pretty conservative guy, straight down the line on just about every issue. We got talking about movies one day and he started going off about this and that. I think the movie was Carlito's Way, and I was just saying how I liked it, blah, blah, blah. Anyway, this guy couldn't get past the fact that Sean Penn was in it. He hated the movie and wouldn't watch it anymore because of Sean Penn. For the record, this guy didn't use to be as wacky as he is now about this sort of thing...and if my memory serves me correctly he used to like Carlito's Way.

And now with Obama getting into office with all these high profile celebrities supporting him, it's making matters worse for this guy. Pretty soon he's not going to be able to listen to a CD or watch a fuging movie.

So I was wondering if there were any more people out there like this guy. Did you used to be a fan of somebody and now refuse to watch or listen to anything having to do with them?

There is a SOuth American artist who starves dogs as part of his concept of "art" Pretty friggin brutal

I would imagine it;d be less annoying now that celebs have someone in office who they arent going to complain about. I wonder what punk bands are going to focus on next...

When I found out Clay Aiken was gay, I burned all his cd's in my back yard.

As you should have. He could have been so much better if he weren't gay.

i don't really have this problem because there are no good conservative artists (be it music or movies or what-have-you). people with creative talent plus the drive to make it are liberal.

Bill Klemski. He has been a Grip in over 74 films.

His association with the communist party and his perpetual wearing of the lameo Che t-shirt has kept me from watching at least 40 of the greatest films of all time.

Mel Gibson? Kid Rock (not totally conservative but does hold a lot of political views that are contrary to liberals)

I always thought it was the people that bought Clay Aiken CD's that were gay. I might need to rethink this one.

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
