Please to enjoy Ms. Sally Field on Oparh's OWN tomorrow!!!!
Sally will discuss her gay son, the emancipation of the slaves, aging, and comfort Oprah over the brutality Oprah endured while interviewing Anne Hathaway in 2006!!!!!
Oprah: (tearing up, and taking Sally's extended hand) all I did was ask if she felt that her character knew that she was talking to her husband's lover in the scene in Brokeback where Heath Ledger's character calls her...she snapped at me and said..."I think it is obvious"....it was like she was saying go see a Tyler Perry movie and leave the intelligent films to the white people. (Oprah begins to fight back the ugly cry) you know Sally I felt like I was right back in my childhood when everyone would say you are just a fat black girl and you'll never amount to anything...I mean would she have responded the same way to Katie Couric or Diane Sawyer?
Sally: (consoling) I know...I know.. let it out.
She was pretty much single handedly responsible for popularizing Multiple Personality Disorder, now considered a fake illness. This fake illness cost millions their sanity, ruined lives, caused people to false accuse others and had people sent to jail.
If she had refused to be in Sybil, the movie would've failed and millions would be better off.
So did she ever give back her awards or apologize for being in this farce? No, of course not.
oh screw the millions r2...Anne hurt Oprah!! The Oprah!!! Miss Oprah Winfrey!!! plus school children all over Alabama started using the N-word again because they felt if the girl from The Princess Diaries can be snotty to Oprah why can't we curse out our maids!!! Some of those kids grew up to be actors and joined the academy and that is why Viola Davis lost the Oscar and Mitt Romney almost got elected by playing the race card....yes all because of little Anne "I Dreamed a Dream" Hathaway.
OP, it's spelled "Orpah," as in the Killer Whale of the Mississippi Delta.
That is NOT an approved DL meme, r4.
WHET your brain?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
