(Despite the obvious similarities and the fact that Vernon Wells played both characters, I can’t seem to find any tangible information that they purposely modeled the Lord General in Weird Science after Wez in Mad Max: The Road Warrior from four years prior.)
…is Stan Smith based on Robert Z’Dar?
(I couldn’t find any information about Seth MacFarlane specifically basing American Dad‘s Stan Smith on Robert Z’Dar—especially in Maniac Cop—but the similarity is obvious.)
…was ST: TNG’s Q heavily inspired by Zardeth from The Saga of Crystar? 🤨
No wonder Q always creeped me out.
…is Inner Circle’s “Sweat (A La La La La Long)” about (anal) rape? 🤨
It’s painfully obvious, it’s not even thinly-veiled, it’s outright overt:
“I want to make you sweat” – sex
“Looking in your big brown eye” singular – anal-sex
“If you cry out I’m gonna push it some more” – non-consensual
“So I say to myself if she loves me or not” – non-consensual
The music-video doesn’t discount the lyrics; they made that after the song was written and obviously couldn’t portray a guy anally raping a woman; in fact, they may have done the video like that to deflect the implication.
I’d been looking askance at the song Baby It’s Cold Outside for decades, but I never heard anyone else talking about the obvious problems with it until 2017 when the #MeToo movement blew up. I wonder how long it will take for people to start questioning this song. ¬_¬
…does this fortune-cookie sound ominous and almost threatening?
(I’ll add a photo of it if I can find it.)
