Where in the world is Georgie?

Lady-Light said...

The Mattisyahu video is stupid and degrading, but the so-called "frum" couple committed the chilul Hashem. They cheated and lied.

By their attempt at fraud, they have presented the "face of Orthodoxy" to the world. This is what is called a shanda.

Antisemites must be dancing in the streets.

I had mixed feelings about posting this but I decided to because it is already very public.

Notice the date is a full three days before Chanukah.

It could be worse. He could be dressed like a squirrel.

Modeh B'Miktsas said...

the wig one is worse. Mattisyahu defames a minor yomtov d'rabbanan. The frimme defecate on kama issurim d'oraisa.

Certified Ashkenazi said...

Minor yom tov? Chanukah is the greatest holiday of all. Holier than Yom Kippur.

The Real Shliach said...

Sara: with Carmen Sandiego.

Lady-Light: Yup.

Modeh: Frimme? You have low standards.

CA: Which holiday is not the greatest holiday of all?

Menashe said...

Where's the response to my comment?

The Real Shliach said...

Menashe: A: why did you have mixed feelings about it?

B: he's about thirty degrees of weird weirder than I previously suspected.

C: nice to see him rocking some Sony MDR-7506s.

Modeh B'Miktsas said...

CA: Sure. Along with Teutonic Pagan Tekufa Day

TRS: Note the Hungarian Millipim. They are frimme. Not frum and definitely not ehrlich.

The Real Shliach said...

CA: you shock me.

Modeh: you're so negative.

Certified Ashkenazi said...

Moideh: sarcasm is not an argument. Chanukah and Purim both witnessed gilui ha’Atzmus Ein Soif, on a level greater than during Yom Kippur.

The Real Shliach said...

On a level greater than your average Yom Kippur, or than one particularly historic Yom Kippur, or what?

Menashe said...

Just to clarify. There are mailos to Chanukah and Purim as there are with every yomtov. These mailos YK possesses not. But in the overall equation YK is clearly the holiest day of the year.

And given all that I will never understand why my yetzer hara is at its strongest right by tekias shofar of neilah.

Modeh B'Miktsas said...

CA: No matter how many buzzwords you throw around, I'm Jewish and I know that Yom Kippur is the holiest day of the year.

Menashe: What chossid doesn't know about "zeh l'umas zeh?"

The Real Shliach said...

Menashe: What exactly is your YH trying to make you do by Neilah?

CA said...

That's like saying: "I am Jewish, and I know that there is no hell/Jews don't proselytize/[any other myth about Judaism]."

CA said...

Menashe: do you have a source for that? (Not doubting you; just curious.)

Yossi said...

The first video. Matisyahu has a weird and drug-induced warped sense of humor and creativity. I don't think the music video is a chillul Hashem at all. Because he held captive dressed like santa?

The Real Shliach said...

Because he danced around with scantily-clad women?

Modeh B'Miktsas said...

Gillui atzmus ein sof? Besides the fact that translating those words borders on idolatry, how do you figure that the day the kohen gadol enters kodesh hakadoshim is further from G-d than the day with no avoda whatsoever?

Although the lady dressed in the top video looks like a Chosid's wife, the bottom video was inherently more expressive of (the current manifestation of) Chabad.

CA said...

Anonymous: I would like to see some data to corroborate your assertion.

Georgie WAS in France said...

The annoying thing about youtube links is that the link tells you no information regarding what to expect once you click on it. Same applies to bit.ly et al.

Georgie might still be in France but I don't really know said...

Don't worry, it's just an interview with the wig lady after the case.

I don't really care. I haven't even watched Matisyahu said...

which one? There are many links in this post.

Advocate of Georgie Youtube clips on certain occasions such as these said...

This one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1LILGkvLRE
Ah see if you had watched the Matisyahu video you would have understood your friends reference of babes and chocolate stuff.

two questions said...

Chocolate man d'char shmei?

Are you an apostrophe neglecter? I fear I may have to end this conversation.

two responses said...

I can't find d'char shmei in my somewhat limited Yiddish and Hebrew dictionaries. So maybe.

Point is, the excuse is just bogus. Even if they're 100% correct, they still made Jews look terrible.
