Notes about the Super Bowl

Quick, one-take comments about the game and the cultural phenomenon of the stuff surrounding last night’s Super Bowl.

The game was excellent. Patriots’ victories are always symbolically loaded. Happy to discuss the game more in the comments. Respect to apex man Tom Brady, his team, and also to young Jared Goff of the Rams who fought hard and bravely.

The halftime show: Maroon 5 has some decent songs but that medley, along with the rap cameos makes me wonder, does anyone like that kind of production? I get it, that the fans around the stage were caught up in the moment, the beat and lights show, that’s how concerts are. But watching it from the screen, it looked like technically impressive visuals plus auditory mess.

Anonymous Conservative points out that lead singer Adam Levine’s big tattoo, displayed when he took off his shirt, is a p-d0pizza butterfly icon.

The commercials weren’t as in-your-face anti-White as usual and I don’t recall seeing any with a mixed-race couple. Still, one wonders if there is some law that there must be a black in every commercial.

NFL’s paeans to “social justice,” they used those very words — what would one expect. They gave a shoutout to something involving, forgot the exact words, “justice in juvenile discipline,” which indubitably translates to “let violent, adult-bodied black 16 year olds get away with criminal TNB.”

The honors to MLK serve solely to showcase the anachronism of that charlatan. An updating of that propaganda: one of the Williams tennis players’ speech about how when you’re not invited, you invite yourself in. That, in one TV ad, is liberalism. Never build, always squat on someone else’s real estate and run it down.

Modern, heavily funded liberal entertainment, including ads that reach for epic heights, fall flat because their liberal “attitude” and casting make them the opposite of inspiring. Diversity ruins everything.

The game itself: fantastic.

  1. The Halftime Show is geared toward “party people” wanting to get their coke on now?

    nb4 yeah this is a boomer post

    Who tf was that guy?

  2. ^^^ angry tired gen x is boomer levels dissatisfied w/ the performance!

    Who tf was that guy?

    His name is Levine. Is that jewish for lion?

    He looked pretty California buff, frankly.

  3. Levine’s pop music hits are familiar. Actually he is a good talented pop singer.

    But that style of pop music is geared for teenage girls, who are getting their hormones and being swept up in the sexuality of their feelz. Oh it’s a magical time

    I didn’t recognize the guy’s face, but going on his appearance, he looks too healthy despite the tattoos to be a fag or high level sex degenerate. A low level sex degenerate would mean lots of hetero groupie style sex, and then this and that here and there. Someone in his position kind of has to say yes to that, I would think.

  4. The show was outrageous. I thought we reached peak negro ten or twenty years ago?

    ZMan has a post up this morning that is worth considering. It is the idea that the liberal mindset, or whatever it is to be called, is actually a virus as in an actual disease of some sort. Maybe not a virus but that the behavior of these White people who are welcoming their multi-race living arrangement, is not feigned.

    That’s “who they are” now, and so …

    It’s an interesting way to think about it. It seems to comport with my experience. We can’t separate who we are, from the environment that we live in.

    As it stands, we all get subject to globohomo, to one degree or another. Linh Dinh says it’s less pervasive in small town Viet Nam.

  5. Incidentally I saw Toby Keith live this summer. He has a great singing voice. His rah rah muh American is all about Chevy Trucks, or was it Ford. I don’t think there was a black face in the entire crowd, which crowd was literally a parking lot so pretty depressing.

    That’s our civic environment. A parking lot, temporary stage and piss beer in plastic trucks, and the guy on stage is the closest we get to an icon much less hero?

    Lake Woebegone, it’s not just a radio show anymore …

  6. But that style of pop music is geared for teenage girls, who are getting their hormones and being swept up in the sexuality of their feelz. Oh it’s a magical time

    Not even. It’s the lates 30-40 something mommies swooning over Levine this morning, as far as Facebook can tell me (I’m back on FB for professional reasons, I took up a leadership position in my community and if I’m not using FB, I’m not in any loops at all).

    Personally, McVay is a much tastier snack, because he doesn’t have psychopath face. Levine is not attractive.

    In any case I did not see the game or halftime show. Or any commercials. I’ve vowed to pretty much give up that particular consumption. We had a great time eating tacos and visiting with mother-in-law and baking banana bread for our shut in neighbor.

    Have a great week everyone

  7. Hey, 40 is the new 15.

    I can kinda understand. I’m recently 43, don’t really feel that old until I try to do overhead barbell presses,then my shoulder sounds like a packet of saltines being readied for a bath in tomato soup. Gotta back off, at that point.

    But I’m also not single, I’m pretty happy with my life, and I really don’t understand why women in their 40s and 50s want mermaid or unicorn or opal or kaleidoscope hair, or whatever.

    I had that in my teens, it was fun, but when I was a teen, no one else was doing that. No one. I had to mail order Manic Panic or use KoolAid over double process bleaching. Now my contemporaries are feeling the need to be edgy, so crazy hair it is. I saw a woman 8 years older than me wearing a real life honest to god Mohawk the other day.

    So maybe I shook the sillies out at the right time?

    But that doesn’t matter, because GoGrrrl says Do What You Want.

    On some level I’ve always known everyone was full of shit, partially or fully. But when my mom (64), ever adamantly against tattoos and live-in boyfriends and opposite sex sleepovers and bringing strays home and all about attending Mass decided to: get not one but 4 tattoos, allowed my brother’s girlfriend to sleepover all the time and my sister to have her boyfriend live with them, and let my sister bring home stray cats and dogs, and stopped attending mass or pushing my siblings to do so,…

    I’m pretty sure she sorta likes me, but she’s full of shit up to her eyeballs, like everyone else.

    I’ve decided to just smile, nod, don’t speak, take names, and walk with a big stick.

  9. I like that the Patriots won, just because that seems to trigger the SJW types, for whatever reason, except for the SJWs who live up Boston way, and there are PLENTY of those.

    One notes, yet again, a year where both quarterbacks in the Super Bowl were uber-white, and no Magical Negro Quarterback was to be found.

    I didn’t watch the half-time show as I find such things revolting. Who actually likes them? Probably the gays that are responsible for them. I’ll tune into the half-time show when they go back to having marching bands.

    As for the commercials that I saw, it seemed a relentless wave of Progressive nonsense, one after the other, with endless tiresome attempts at being “inspirational.” Does anybody try to sell a product anymore? Or do we only sell feelz and creepy Progressive brand associations? Topped off by the Washington Post commercial. I love how they have to spend $5 million bucks to promote themselves as being honest brokers of the news and not lying propagandists, when the very ad itself was lying propaganda.

  10. “30 to 40 something mommies. The new teenage girls?”

    John D. MacDonald had in one of his books that a whoever a woman is at 15, that’s who she is for the rest of her life.

  11. But when my mom (64), ever adamantly against tattoos and live-in boyfriends and opposite sex sleepovers and bringing strays home and all about attending Mass decided to: (do a 180)

    I’m pretty sure she sorta likes me, but she’s full of shit up to her eyeballs, like everyone else.

    Look at it like this: at least you got raised using the good version. Your siblings got the soft version.

  12. Re “mixed-race couple” … There was at least one ad that caused me to say, at the time, “I see they can get even get miscegenation into animation now.” Sorry, I cannot remember (or repressed) the advertiser, but it was a white and non-white liquid hand joining together in some kind of amoebic union.

  13. I swore off watching soot-ball once and for all a couple years ago. My heart beats with more fulfillment, my nightly laughter more valorous; my eyes are clearer, concentration more lucid, and my deadlift and power-clean maxes soared up as a result.

    “…whoever a woman is at 15, that’s who she is for the rest of her life.”

    I’ll have to think on this. It sure sounds right. It’s also been said that a minx around that age will better understand Plato’s call to philosophize with the whole soul; that merrily organic lack of outright constructive synthesis and inventive reasoning more natural to men.

    “One must ask children and birds how cherries and strawberries taste.”

  14. The halftime show was a mess. No one seemed to like it. I chalk up a lot of the Civil Rights nostalgia to the fact that it took place in Atlanta. People, including liberals, don’t pay attention to that stuff anymore. Edelman is cute, but that beard has to go.

  15. The exact opposite of Poz… we watched the Narnia movies over the last couple of days. See them if you haven’t yet (or read the C.S. Lewis originals).

  16. — As for the commercials that I saw, it seemed a relentless wave of Progressive nonsense, one after the other, with endless tiresome attempts at being “inspirational.”

    Here is the point I’ve been trying to make, not for lack of half-effort trying: I like heroic, inspirational stories. Lots of that in classics, I also was profoundly moved by the story of the assassination of Franz Kutschera when I was researching that. An inspiring story can have a demigod hero or a scrappy underdog hero, and everything in between.

    Thing is, liberal productions are giving us the modicum of exterior appearance of the heroic story (dramatic visuals and music, good looking men, seriousness of tone) but with all the wrong spirit.

    Those commercials, almost every one of them, was uncomfortable to watch because I know that people who developed those concepts are enemy scum whose values are anti-heroic and whose lives, psyches, ideals, are repellent.

    When seeing some action-drama TV series trailer, I already loathe every character in that series based on that very short introduction. They are all liberals’ wish-fulfillment vessels.

  17. Speaking of heroic made-for-television movies. How about Liam Neesom in the starring role for a white supremacist gang based out of Catholic Kentucky. But then! a heart-of-gold black woman, slender and dignified, saves him and he loves her and repents! for his original sin of nigger-huntin racism.

    Neesom was the last most convincing White guy badass action hero archetype. And now he hates niggers?

    Something is up with that story. He is going by a script.

  18. — ZMan has a post up this morning that is worth considering. It is the idea that the liberal mindset, or whatever it is to be called, is actually a virus as in an actual disease of some sort. Maybe not a virus but that the behavior of these White people who are welcoming their multi-race living arrangement, is not feigned.

    I just read it. He aptly ties it to the 1950 novel “I am legend”, which is about a bacterial plague that turned all humans (except the sole immune hero) into vampire-like beings. At first all the vampires are mindless and feral like zombies but then he is captured by a vampire-like adapted human community that’s infected but rational. They look at him, the last normal human, with the loathing that a liberal feels for Trump voters.

    Is multikult liberalism a biological infection like toxiplasma gondii, with all of the pluses and minuses that come with that? Minuses: libs are impervious to reason. Plusses: it can presumably be cured with an antibiotic.

    I dunno. The whole thing is a mystery to me.

    I do know that ideological insanity can be turned off with the flick of the switch. Example: as a university student in the 1960s, my dad would attend those World Socialist Retreats in the USSR. He hated communism but students are invited, students go. That was at the height of Soviet power.

    He told me that those retreats were quite fun. Bullshit ideological pep rallies by day that you sit thru, party by night. Fellow students from East Germany, Bulgaria, SSR Lithiania and others were a blast to party with. One exception, he said, was the Russians. He said that you simply could not meet a more braindead bunch of automatons. “You try to have a human conversation with them, and they parrot Marxist-Leninist slogans right back at you.”

    That’s then, not now. Russians today are free, Christian people and admired for their “red pill” qualities.

    Communism in their country ended, so the metaphoric “transmission tower” of Marxism-Lenninism was turned off. Russians are now, I imagine, a lot of fun to party with.

    One caveat: under shitty regimes (communism, multikult) shitty people gravitate to defend the political correctness of their time and place. The country’s official ideology might change, but the shitty individuals are still shitty. In Eastern Europe, you can’t bet wrong when betting that the children of former Communists are now the most devoted fans of the EU and liberalism.

  19. There’s been a lot of discussion about how much knowledge is going to be lost because Boomers and Silents failed to pass it down to following generations. What I saw in this year’s Super Bowl was 66 year-old Bill Belichick and 71 year-old Wade Phillips, two of the top five greatest defensive minds ever, staging one of the most brilliantly schemed defensive games in the history of the sport. The Rams head coach, offensive wizard Sean McVay, was absolutely bamboozled. He is only 33 years old. For all that can be said about Belichick’s genius, he has never produced a successful head coach. His daughter, on the other hand, is a successful college lacrosse coach. Even the great have succumbed to the Poz.

  20. I didn’t know Edelman was jewish. No wonder he said “l’chaim” to some reporter. I thought the reporter was jewish.

    Didn’t know Kraft was until about 4-5 years ago.

    Though I did find the physiognomy contrast between Kraft and Arthur Blank, owner of the Falcons, also jewish, to be quite telling.

    Blank is damn near a dead ringer for the merchant man meme.
