Moronic Family Feud contestant proves we need way more zombie movies I love it because she clearly meant black as in "black necrotizing flesh" and not people of color. If she was actually being racist then, yeah, that's not funny and shouldn't be laughed at. But laughing at something because exaggerating it makes it sound racist when it's clearly not, that makes sense. To paraphrase George Carlin, it's all about what you're exaggerating. Or she's one of those people who aren't quite sure how to be around black folk which we actually do find quite funny, we're just people (out to kill all of you) KIDDING! Or, maybe she is like Austin Powers in that scene with the guy who has a mole on his face and he can't stop saying "mole" and variations there of even though he is trying not to. I kinda figured she just panicked and said the first thing that popped into her head.

Take two minutes to watch this bloody astronaut-on-alien battle Spaceships were way cooler in the '70s. Well I suppose we all have nostalgic attachment to the retrofuturism of decades prior. Me, I want to see the new stuff. The new ideas. I want to see what will become retrofuturism in many decades to come. 40 years from now there will be retrofuturistic nostalgia for the spaceships we design in movies now. People will roll their eyes at all the "floating in space" augmented reality stuff, movies love now. Not so much the retrofuturistic urge as the attention to detail. Ah, the Star Wars, grimy, "lived in" kick. Well, the lived-in look goes back at least as far as Dark Star, which was a conscious reaction to the ascetic cleanliness of the Discovery in 2001.
