I watched "Bowling For Columbine" a couple of days ago and I thought it was good. What was most interesting was the timeline they showed of violent things America has done. I was surprised to hear that only 165 people are killed by guns here in Canada. I thought it was more than that.

So now Michael Moore is p*ssing off Pete Townshend.  Apparently he wanted to use the song Won't Get Fooled Again and Pete didn't let him. He did think about it but didn't think he knew enough about the movie to let him use it. Anyway, now Moore is going around talking about Pete being for the war and bad mouthing him in interviews! What's wrong with that guy!! Anyway, here's Pete in his own words talking about the whole situation if you're interested:

By the way, does anyone else think it's funny that he keeps an online diary? It doesn't surprise me as much being Pete Townnshend though!

Heh, I can see why Michael Moore wants that song. If you may remember "Won't Get Fooled Again" was GWB's campaign slogan/song in 2000.....

I still haven't seen this movie...........as a liberal, and from what I've read, I'm don't think it's really worth the ticket pricing......for us in the know, none of this info is new, so I just don't see how it could possibly sustain my interest all that much...

That's right! What did Townshend have to say about that I wonder? Too funny condidering the dude who wrote it isn't even American and probably couldn't care less about all this stuff! I love how he'll sell his songs to CSI and all those car commercials, but he wouldn't let Moore have one! That's funny. No wonder Moore is blasting him! I'm glad to see Pete has SOME standards left!

I must admit I haven't seen any of his films yet, but I've read his last two books and they were really good. I think Michael Moore is great, and right most of the time.

I sincerely doubt that Michael Moore has been going around bashing Pete Townshend.  I've seen a lot of the talk shows he's been on and i dont remember that.  What are your sources there, Pete's diary?

I think it was posted on Pete's website.  I know I read Pete complaining about it somewhere recently myself.

still i'd like to see the quote by Michael he's talking about, not just his reaction to it.

yeah I've seen that.  The Daily Show had a hilarious segment about a guy making a movie with a similar title.  I love it.

Moore is a buffon in his presentation but as to the facts in this case many are coming right out of the president's mouth as you watch!

I heard Moore on the Howard Stern show. He sounds pretty normal. But then in contrast to Stern anyone would seem normal. I haven't seen the movie yet. It's doing amazingly well though! I cannot wait for November. Actually I can't wait untill the debates start. That's ALWAYS entertaining.
