If a tree falls in the woods...

If Shocked went around babbling evangelical hate speech unrelated to LGBT, she have disillusioned a lot of her fans too.

Re: Michelle Shocked has lost her mind

That audio is full of gems.

My favorites are when she insinuates that she's too black for her black church & when she begs for money from the audience at the end because she knows she won't be paid. "A dollar for the street performer!"

Gotta love "the world's greatest homophobe!"

Someone who thinks DVDTalk has the same code of conduct as the MSNBC Chat Room.

Edit: Jesus I just realized he's a DVDTalk reviewer and I liked his review of The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp.

Your fail had nothing to do with politics, Dixie Chicks, etc. (all of which I agree with you on), but that you got Groucho'd. Boom!

All the reading-comprehension-challenged homophobes must have been too much for him.

He left before any of that even started. He was vexed over someone not knowing who Shocked was and threw a rambling fit about it.

By the time everything else came he was probably on YouTube bitching about someone's post.

Actually his rambling fit was over me mocking him as the thread police's top detective.

Re: Michelle Shocked has lost her mind

After reading this interview with Spin I'm not entirely convinced she's a born-again homophobe, but I think a strong case could be made that she has lost her mind.

She's under investigation by an ethics committee for misuse of campaign funds.

"Michelle Shocked has lost her mind" and "Michelle shocked, has lost her mind" are really two different topics.

Re: Michelle Shocked has lost her mind

UPDATE: Still crazy:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/0...sco&ref=topbar

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. — Her show had been cancelled, but that didn't stop alternative folk and rock singer Michelle Shocked from showing up at a Santa Cruz nightclub where she staged a sit-in with tape across her mouth that read "Silenced By Fear."
[...]
Sitting on the ground outside the venue and strumming her guitar, Shocked was largely ignored and refused to speak. She pointed to a sign inviting people to pick up a Sharpie marker and write on the white disposable safety suit she was wearing.

It's interesting that this has seemingly destroyed Michelle Shocked's career, but Eric Clapton can remain being "God."

What did Clapton do? I mean, besides making boring music.

That's pretty bad, but besides being a long time ago, it was pre-internet, and pre-24 hour news cycle. Just the fact that people remember it now at all is a huge deal.

To be fair, while "Brownie" was his most famous guitar, he did name one of his guitars "Blackie."
