Tempers flare... Words are exchanged... Nothing foreign to anyone here.
We've all seen the political debates here that have sometimes ended peacefully, and sometimes ended not so peacefully. Well, Dennis & Ronnie Films have something to say. Try not to take it too seriously.

The zooming was a bit over the top, no matter how it was meant to be used.. and I just cannot forgive you for spelling favour wrong. razz

Yes, the zooming was supposed to be like Traffic on... drugs. Hm.. And, oh you can not be serious! Favour was spelled that way for my american audiences who are not so trained in the ways of the way proper English is spelled. Heh.

Yes, I animated the red dot.

You all are my new heroes. Pretty funny flick. It was cool to see how silly we get around here in some discussions. Thanks for getting me to laugh at myself lol

I dug the ode to NYPD blue or was it ode to I AM SAM?

Either way the zooming was a good way to show how over the top and misguided some of the things we say around here, really are twisted

Is there a secret message in this too confused I need to go back and double check wink

I liked the idea of showing how both sides have good points and bad points, and how all the fighting should be stopped, but I just think that you got what most liberals think about the war wrong. I like the idea, but i just didn't really like the product

I think we got what the conservatives think about the war wrong as well. See, we were making generalisations. Just like what people really do.

Yeah, the mayor of San Fransisco decided to grant anyone gay person that wants one a marriage (which is illegal and entirely against the system of government) The Massachusetts supreme court legalized gay marriages in Massachusetts (technically legal according to government setup however most people dont think that the judges should actually MAKE laws since thats the job of the legislature)
