Michael Moore on Akihabara

michael-moore-on-akiba.jpg

Comedy fat man and leftist documentary maker Michael Moore has paid a visit to Akihabara, with the town leaving a distinctly unfavourable impression on him it seems.

Above he dispenses the first of his sage observations: “A lot of unnecessary things are being sold here.”

Other choice quotes:

“Shopping may brighten the spirits, but they’re just fooling themselves.”

In response to “Okaerinasaimase, goshujin-sama!” at a maid cafe:

“I’m not your master! Everybody’s equal.”

With cheery insights such as these, some fear another documentary may be in the offing…

    Another item to be added to unnecessary things sold - movies by Michael Moore. A ignorant buffoon would be a king understatement.

    Deceitful liar is another when it comes to ALL his movies, from the very beginning. The entire premise of his movie 'Roger and Me' - i.e. Moore could not get to met or talk with 'Roger' - was essentially lost during the production because Moore 'forgot' to mention that he actually met and talked with General Motors CEO Roger Smith...TWICE. Moore probably thought the fact that his second meeting with Smith which was a personal meeting by appointment between the two, would had made his movie moot.

    Then there was the case where Mike Yon had to serve Moore with legal papers before Moore or his lawyer would even discuss the fact that Moore had lifted a copyright photo of Yon's for use on Moore's website...without permission or even an acknowledgement...

    I agree with james woods on the subject of michael moore. He is "a fat fucking bastard who can go choke on his own ego in hell, the cock sucking fat ass"

    what he said

    I live next to the guy in Northern Michigan. He has invested a lot of money in the only big town up here (Google "Traverses city film festival").
    I used to work at a grocery store near TC that he would frequent between films, and he'd always make jokes and was over all a really nice guy. Hell he though it was hilarious that I told him I had torreted "Sicko" the week before.

    So I REALLY get a kick out off all you lolifags mocking him

    I love it when people try to defend celebrities by saying how nice of a person they are since they "personally" know them.

    He's just a Michael Moore fan lying for his tubby master (or a hired spin doctor). Moore doesn't live in Michigan, despite him shouting "Flint! I live in Flint! I'm from Flint! Totally Flint!"

    He never lived in Flint. He lived in the upscale suburbs, and "slummed" briefly in Flint when he decided he wanted to make money off the "little people" he claimed to represent.

    He lives in a multi-million town home in New York City. He has a -vacation- home in one of the rich parts of Michigan. He certainly doesn't go meandering around to little grocery stores from some modest ranch dwelling when he's "between films".

    I don't know if I should just facepalm at the fail comments or congratulate Artefact on his huge catch from this trollbate.

    And if neither, to Sylar and Skribulous for possessing the skill of doing basic research that most internet dwellers lack.

    What an ignorant fool.
    People like this should just STFU.
    Understand a little of the things first and then you can speak, fatass. Besides you're not so different from the stereotypical American that you hate so much.

    Taking into consideration this is Akihabara we (and Moore) are talking about:

    “A lot of unnecessary things are being sold here.”

    Duh! Of course there are, it's basically the capital of mindless consumerism!

    “Shopping may brighten the spirits, but they’re just fooling themselves.”

    Not necessarily, although of course he's probably talking about hopeless hikikomoris and NEETs, for whom a buying spree of useless crap is the depressive equivalent of drowning their sorrows in alcohol.

    “I’m not your master! Everybody’s equal.”

    Yeah, maid cafes are about the sickest, wickedest economic tertiary sector shit the Japanese have ever produced, barring perhaps used pantsu dispensers (seriously, what the fucking fuck!?) and all things enjo kousai.

    Ah, he is just an asshole trying to get attention. For God's sake, how many unnecessary things American stores are selling? It is all subjective anyhow. Technically we dont even need movies. Maybe we should start by stopping him from making any more nonsense. If our world is just filled with "Useful" items, then it would be a boring world. We wont have games, sport cars, super stars, manga, comics, animations etc. Go blow yourself Michael!

    Haha, I love the "everybody's equal" quote. I don't think he was trying to insult them particularly, it's just his style of humor. I'm not sure of his tone on the subject, but even if he is completely serious, it still makes for a few good laughs on the differences between the extreme left American and Japanese Otaku cultures.

    He is probably totally without knowledge of otaku culture when he says his opinion of equality in maid cafe. Or he is joking! I share most of his opinions in his documentaries, if he does not know anything about otakuism does not make him automatically a bad guy.
    But Moore should think twice when he says that "a lot of unnecessary things are sold here" because he eats too much and it is just as bad for enviroment and for his own health.

    I generally like his documentaries, but this shows a definite lack of knowledge and probably a lot of preconceived notions clouding his view.

    “I’m not your master! Everybody’s equal.”
    So he should goto McDonand's instead of somewhere the waitresses serve you. Of wait, there are still people serving you at McDonald's from behind the counter. Umm... so go home and make your own meals yourself. Oh, you have a cook to do that for you? Well, you should cook for the cook then. You're all equals after all.

    Moore is to politics what otakus are to manga/anime. He's embarassing.

    He's just a political troll if he does make a movie it'll be a riot like the last one.
    Though it could be worse it could have been Rush Limbaugh or Sarah Palin visiting Akihabara.
    I don't even want to know what their reaction would be.

    Actually it was the other way around, he told the useless, money-thirsty cunt that she shouldn't degrade herself to please the lame, perverted fantasies of pocket-full, pimple-faced otaku fatasses.

    But, that's humanity for you... and him, lol.

    I know why he's in Japan maybe he's curious in Japan because he watch the movie THE COVE also a US documentary about Dolphin killing and this documentary he's making will be about DOLPHIN DELICACY IN JAPAN. he might try it because he's fat and PROMOTE IT WORLDWIDE.

    "Michael Moore would expect everyone to chose death. That expectation is extreme because it holds everyone at the cost of individual wants. That's not very 'American' isn't it?"

    If you expected anything american to come out of Moore you haven't ever seen anything by him, have you?

    As to him having a point... I think the only way that will ever happen is if he gets stabbed or impaled...

    I'm really not surprised the man who wants everyone who has ever even thought about enjoying being american to feel guilty wants to ruin the safe fantasy that capitalism allows.

    In the (approximate) words of 4chan, To Michael Moore I say; "don't like it? GTFO N00b!"
