SUNDANCE COOLS

2006:

Al Gore Does Sundance ... Promoting Film, He Calls Global Warming A ‘Planetary Emergency’

2008:

For most of the Sundance Film Festival’s first day all anyone was talking about was the weather. By common consensus this is the coldest Sundance has ever been.

  1. I love how God keeps playing with Gore’s mind by doing this to his global warming theory!

  2. Bet the idiots at the festival don’t even get the irony.

  3. So what if it’s a little colder?  Do you see any polar bears there?  Case closed.

  4. Butch Cassidy: “What’s the matter?”

    Sundance Kid (admitting, with obvious reluctance): “I can’t stand the cold!”

    Butch Cassidy ( bursts out laughing): The cold? The smugness will probably kill you!”

  5. Brilliant, paco!

  6. Parky last night. His final show. (A repeat I think.)
    Sir David Attenborough was one guest (the third).
    Parky just HAD to ask.
    Polar bears drowning, melting ice, no way to hunt the seals for food.

    That’s when I knew it was bed time.

  7. #3 Do you see any polar bears there?

    That’s because they’ve all drowned.  Or they’re busy eating enviromentalists.  Or something.

  8. Did anyone notice the full page adv in yesterday’s colour magazine in the Weekend Australian inviting people to FLY to Canada and get eye to eye in the wild with numerous polar bears. This is in PC, morally pure, squeeky clean Canada.

    All that carbon, all those bears.

    You sure it’s not to, like, feed the bears.

    Tourists?

    After what I heard David Attenborough say on Parky last night they’ll be starving soon because they won’t be able to catch seals on ice, they can’t catch them in the water the seals swim too fast.

    I think they found Tara Brown quite delicious-looking. 60 Minutes story transcript.
    Tim’s take.
    Bolt’s bite.

  10. Do you see any polar bears there? 

    In spite of the fact that Wyoming is a place where the latte sipping, Mother Gaia™ hugging, narrow-minded, self-centered, well moneyed leftards simply luuurrrvveeee to live and play (but not work), that state is as non-leftoid as one could hope for in this day of kumbaya singing liberal idiots. 

    This includes reasonable hunting laws.  So I expect that any polar bears that far south were picked off by residents who marveled at the size of the “white coyotes”.....if the friendly residents of Montana missed them, that is.

  11. OTOH, polar bears in Wyoming would be a great idea…..if they could be trained to hunt lefties.

    Any ideas, folks?

  13. #4; Paco, you rabid genius, another favourite movie I can no longer watch. With all the hollywood ‘stars’ demonstrating their mental vapidity what movies are there left that you can watch without thinking about the vomitous opinions of the star? John Wayne, Peckinpah, Schwarzenegger is out except for the movies with Ventura in them; Willis has some interesting politics but seagal is confusing, while norris was once good but has now gone god-batty; that leaves MIckey Rourke.

  16. very good deano; Clark Gable too and deano himself gets a nod for Rio Bravo and not talking to lewis after they split up.

  17. #12 thanks JMH. They have appeal. Have you been on any?

  18. #13 Seagal is as mad as a march hare. As a cut snake, queer as a three cent piece.

    Just watch that idiot movie of his, “The Patriot”, I think, released around the same time as Mel’s of the same name.

    It is a total dog of lefty crapola. The ending has to be seen to be believed.

    Herbal Teas Cure All!

    (Exit Wounds was a good shootem up, though).

  19. And on Friday in Toronto David Suzuki gave a global warming climate change speech to the perverted converted at the U of T; and on Saturday the city issued a cold weather alert (the city getting the homeless off the streets etc.).

  20. #18 “The Patriot” was made about the same time seagal was busted for illegally importing the dried penises of endangered animals. He really lost the plot; in his most recent ‘movies’, which seem to be made with European mafia money, he is so out of condition they have to cut between his lines so he can regain his breath. Still, “Above The Law” showed promise and “Under Seige” was a cracker.

  21. I hope the Sun Dance is more effective than the Rain Dance.

  22. I liked Under Siege, it was fun and completely non intellectual.  Didn’t need to think at all to enjoy it (in fact, thinking would ruin it).

    So I had hopes for the one set in Alaska… Michael Caine chewing the carpet, R. Lee Ermey shitting railroad spikes, product placement for the newest and shiniest Maganvox satellite phone.  And Segal’s little red caboose chugging round the bend, what with the energy companies suppressing the 200 mpg carburetors and the perpetual motion machines.  After that film I knew he’d gone completely Loony Tunes on us.

    1. I read about the beasties in my younger days and resolved to be content with reading about them.
    2. Churchill Manitoba is one of those places where the mid-day high temperature is often -35C, or -31F. I’ve done that and feel no urgent need to repeat the experience.
    3. As I said, read about it.

    Cheers

  25. The Real JeffS—The polar bears tried to crowd Wyoming turf, but the grizzlies basically said, “Come here, pencil-neck!” and after that it got ugly…

  26. I feel better knowing that by “common consensus” they determined it “is the coldest Sundance has ever been.”

    Any chance anyone would check the recorded temperature extremes to determine the fact of the matter? Nah.

  27. Michael K on the influx of Parasite and her fellow parasites to Sundance:

    “If you didn’t tell me this was the Sundance Film Festival, I would’ve figured it was the AVN Awards with all the skanks, whores, sluts and prostitutes running around. I mean, what the hell is Kim Kardashian doing there?”

  29. Oh, can’t the Gore save us from this? More “theoreticians” using “science” and something called “physics” to attack manmade global warming and the Greenhouse Effect. Obviously in the pay of Big Oil.
