What is a Fuzzball?


  • One question I hear more than any other is What's a Fuzzball??" Allow me to explain:

    A Fuzzball is a 30-year-old fallen debutante who lives in Houston, TX with a bossy dog and an even bossier parrot who she SWEARS is the reincarnation of Napoleon Bonaparte.

    A Fuzzball prefers animals to most people, because people can really suck sometimes.

    A Fuzzball loves music, ALL music ALL of the time. If she's not listening to it, then she's singing it.

    A Fuzzball has a mad love for all things British, especially their actors.

    A Fuzzball is blissfully happy in a bookstore, preferably one with good music playing in the background. If you look under a Fuzzball's bed you'll usually find an entire library of books that she has dropped there after falling asleep reading.

    Fuzzballs are usually incurable romantics, ridiculously optimistic, and bent on making the world a happier place.

    Your typical Fuzzball will probably have a completely bizarre sense of humor. Just go with it, it will take you to funny places.

    You should also be aware that Fuzzballs are giant nerds. Seriously. Science fiction, computers, the whole shebang.

    Fuzzballs are also budding photographers. They love looking at the world through a lens and finding new ways to be creative.

    Oh...and you can also look for a Fuzzball in one of the best movies ever made. ;)

My impression from reading reviews of Lethal Jesus is that if you're not spiritually into it, it's just a long splatterfest. My dilemma is that I don't want one dime of my ticket purchase to go to Mel's crazy-ass right-wing psuedo-Catholic religion, but on the other hand -- Dude, they talk in Latin! When's the next time I'll see that on screen?

So maybe I should just download it on Kazaa. I'm pretty sure that's what Jesus would do. (The story about Jesus feeding the crowds is a clear metaphor for internet file-sharing.)

I never thought of just downloading it on Kazaa! What a great idea! That way I can just turn it off if I get upset...and I kind of agree with you about not wanting to fund Gibson's rants...

In regards to the last two posts, that it is exactly what I was saying to someone on Saturday evening and was promptly accused of being anti-Christian. From what I've read, reviews and Gibson's own rhetoric, it doesn't sound like a very Christian portrayal of Christianity. It sounds more like a fire and brimstone version of Christianity. And yet to many it may give a message of peace and forgiveness and more power to those people. In general, though, it sounds more like "the Jesus Chainsaw Massacre" to quote one critic. BTW i will be seeing "the passion" soemtime this week, i haven't found a good download yet.

Tracy

That is not how you came off as sounding, Chris. I never accused you of being anti-Christian, I said that you were being close-minded to other people's beliefs. I didn't feel like I could talk about the movie without you attacking me. I felt one way about Gibson, then my sister saw the movie and told me about it, and now I feel slightly different. She didn't feel anti-Semetic after seeing the film. She didn't want to run out and join a bible study, either. She left the movie with a better understanding of what she herself believes. You call this film propoganda. Well then couldn't it be argued that a film like Kill Bill is propoganda for revenge and senseless violence? Should people round the world boycott it and curse Quentin Tarantino for his beliefs? No, because that wouldn't be "cool". Mel Gibson had every right to make this movie. I don't agree with everything that he believes, but I'm certainly not going to make someone feel foolish for getting something out of The Passion, least of all my sister. I'm sorry if that makes you angry, but it's how I feel.

Chris

Yes it (Kill Bill)can be considered Propoganda, most movies could be considered propaganda, its arguably in their nature. I Sincerely believe that it is great for your sister or anyone else who gets a positive message from the movie. I think it is a good thing when any movie that causes so much controversy and emotion is made. I was not trying to "make anyone feel foolish . . ." I was not directing it towards her reaction to the movie, and honestly I did not realize right away that it was a positive reaction. At first I thought you meant that the movie was so heavy handed as to cause a very depressing and distressing reaction, I didn't realize it was a reaction of peace and hope and whatnot. So when I started talking about how a director can use a harsh and painful subeject matter like torture and martyrdom to illicit very specific feelings, I did not realize I was going to offend you or your beliefs. When I realized that it was a positive reaction you were talking about, it was too late: I had already lit the fuse. I beacme angry and combative in speech only when you started to use the style of argument where one turns everything the other person is saying around in a belittling fashion, something your very good at. Thats when i became angry and it also make me angry when someone storms off and slams doors when your not quite certain where you went wrong. I was not angry because of anyone's beliefs, I was angry because I felt like i was being attacked when i didn't realize that you thought you were being attacked. Anyways, this "Asshole" doesn't know if your going to listen or try to understand anything he is saying. Whatever, I'm going to pay for a ticket tommorow; not so i can argue about it, discredit it, or say mean things about people who actually get a positive message from it; but because all of the hype and controversy has done its job and I DO feel a deep and uncontrolable urge to run out and see the movie for myself.<- I'm not being sarcastic.
