MTV's "DisMissed"

    Well, there I was, channel surfing away and suddenly came across two young girls tongue-kissing each other in a swimming pool on MTV's "Dismissed."

    Now, this stuff is obviously de riguer in porno movies...but on basic cable? At 6:00 in the evening?

    I have to confess, I'm a bit taken aback by this. I mean...kids are watching this!

    So what do you fathers and mothers think about this?

    Short answer: I think it sucks but not because of homosexual kissings but tongue kissing in general.

    But hey, it's MTV, the channel that's raising our kids.

    EMIG Yup

    That stuff doesn't bother nearly as much as some of the commercials during the World Series. I don't want to have to explain police officers in pools of blood to my four year old, and skeletons in barrels give him nightmares.

    Silly me... I thought that MTV stood for MUSIC Television...

    BDD... :{)

    Nah... Does anyone actually see music videos on this thing? Even VH1 is trying to be some pop parent.

    drslash It's all about the beer

    That's not entertainment, it is one of two things: 1) It is the manifestation of someone's agenda to mainstream homosexuality under the guise of entertainment. Or 2) It is the manifestation of someone's guilty PC conscience to have diversity in their programming. Of course, they don't want to take that diversity thing too far and, say carry any programming about Young Americans for Freedom or abstinence advocacy.

    As a parent, I disapprove. Fortunately (or unfortunately) my boys watch Nickleodeon or Cartoon Network. If there is any other channel on, they usually say "Yuck, grown up shows!" :)

    Ah, that's nothing for MTV. Steve, if your really want to see some questionable stuff, check out the Real World show on MTV. It airs on Tuesday nights.....and a billion other times in rerun.

    tke, aka Proud Papa, aka Greg:

    I watched "The Real World" when it first came on, maybe in 1993 or so. I stuck with it halfway through the San Francisco run, but gave it up after they had that abhorrent cad Puck running around blowing boogers on walls and harassing that poor kid who eventually died from AIDS, I think.

    I very much doubt I could stand to watch it now.

    Hey, I have nothing against women kissing each other. Since my porno DVD collection is virtually legendary, I could say that I'm hardly the prude. And seeing it on "Dismissed" didn't exactly offend me...

    ...but if I had kids, that would be another matter entirely. Despite the fact that I'm a lascivious man-whore in real life, I do believe innocence is an attribute that should be nurtured, not broken down with a battering ram.

    Suffice to say, should I ever have kids (oh God, please don't let that happen to me! ), then MTV gets the parental lock thrown on it. Otherwise, I might as well let the little tykes marvel over such DVD luminaries as China Chow Down and Up and Coming.

    LOL...I might be able to challange that collection...after all...my nickname in college was "Porn King." :)

    Oh ya, the one thing I really like about Digital Cable is the ability to lock out channels. When my daughter gets older, MTV will definitely be on the lock list because by that time, I'm sure they'll be a full blown porn channel.

    .....not that there's anything wrong with that....

    My nick was "the pornmeister"...and I will confess that while attending school at San Francisco, I made two porn movies. No, no, I wasn't IN them, but I did, er, direct. (An important sidebar: I dropped out when I was contacted to direct a "stud" film, which quite literally scared the ever living hell out of me. Also, I already knew I was going to join the Army, so having something like that in my portfolio was unlikely to do me much good. But the money was all right--$500 for about 4 days work, and in 1983, that was some cash!)

    And my screen name was...

    Hugh Jorgan.

    Oh my God! Your thee, Hugh Jorgan.....Man I loved your work in "Debbie does Oakland".

    tke711 Oink Oink Staff Member

    Ok....ok....ok....you got me beat Huge Jorgan, as I never made a porn flick. (I bow to the master) :)

    You sure you never acted in one though. I could have sworn that was you in When Harry Ate Sally. :)

    LOL...no, but I was a stunt penis in Rambone. I was a natural, as most people will agree I'm already a dick.

  14. Sierra Mike

    Sierra Mike The Dude Abides Staff Member

    Nah...these things were like 10-minute movies that played at the peep shops in downtown SF. I got lucky by finding a really hot and willing Brazillian woman who was...well...amazing.

    I have no idea what happened to her after that, because when she found out I was Army-bound, she stopped talking to me!

    I was going to make another with Carol Doda, who was a well-known stripper back then, but managed to restrain myself.

    You pig. I bet you listened to punk rock at the Mabuhay Guardens and sucked down Clown Ailey Burgers too.

    Carol Dotas....What a pig.

    Oh, the memories! SF

    Well seeing as how you guys can still remember those times, it would seem you settled down in time. ;)

    Wah! Absolutely, I listened to punk rock...but still preferred Aerosmith and Pink Floyd (my friends threatened to stone me if I played The Wall one more time, but really...how threatening are kids in San Francisco?). I have to admit I never, ever had a Clown Alley burger.

    Carol Doda was, I will confess, a pig...but she was tremendously popular in the early 1980s. She was a pretty nice woman, too, but she certainly looked better doing her strip shows with lots of makeup than when she was sitting next to me in Film Equipment class. I do recall she had an uncanny ability to get her ta-tas whipping around in circular motions, though.

    I just hung out at the Grate High Way racing my 66 SS or my Suzuki GS1000, drank beer and staid out of places like that. Never was big on the porn thing.

    Great Way Park, right? Is that what it was? I never went there, either.

    As far as not being big on the porn thing, nothing wrong there. My flirtations with it were already more than slightly seedy...but it did give me the cash to cover the repairs on my van. :)
