The Name's Bond. Emo Bond.

"Your new watch, 007, has an emergency blade in it, should you want to cut yourself a bit during your mission"


So the new Bond film is to be called Quantum Of Solace.

Sounds like a track by My Chemical Romance, reckons Happy Thought.

Talking of Bond film titles, I once knew a creative director who had the nickname Dr. No...

it was the title of a story written by Ian Fleming, so it isn't a modern film industry bollox title. just old bollox i guess.

Mr Orange likes it.

And I like it because it's the title of the new bond film.

who are you Mr Colour people?

By the way, it's the smallest unit of human compassion that two people can have. As long as that compassion exists, people can survive, but when it is gone, when your partner no longer cares about your essential humanity, the relationship is over.

Very bloody emo.

I am slightly disappointed by the stereotyping of 'emo's' there. Particularly the suggestion that they all self harm.

The Mr. Colours are people worth listening too.

Think JB meets 'The Stig'

I don't see how you got they "all" self harm from that quote. I think you're trying too hard to be offended there!

Stop presses: Stereotyping in advertising?!!?

Rob Mortimer said...

Maybe a touch yes, but it's still a slightly offensive generalisation.

I find it irritating that people think its ok to generalise and stereotype people based on their musical/lifestyle preferences in a way that you wouldnt dare to do with regards to religion age or gender.

Not saying Scamp is like that, but that comment had hints of it.

It's only offensive if you think there's something negative about being portrayed as a self-harmer.

I'm more irritated about them being navel-gazing, middle class whingers who just happen to be going through adolescence.

By the way:

religion=fundamentalist Muslims are scary.
Age=old people are a bit more conservative than the rest of us.
Gender=women are useless at most things that require motor functions, including handjobs.
Rob=amusingly oversensitive MCR fan.

You've made him look exactly like Javier Bardem in No Country For Old Men. How cunning Photoshop is.

Lets put the fun back into fundamentalism!

Not really oversensitive Bernard, just fed up of seeing people bracketed and stereotyped based on even flimsier definitions than market research segmentation.
