In 1986 audiences were dazzled by Captain EO, Michael Jackson’s 3-D movie spectacular at Disney’s Epcot Center in Florida. In the short 17 minute film, Michael Jackson and his ragtag group of rebels face off against an evil monster played by Angelica Huston who gets transformed into an egalitarian happy queen through the power of love, music and rainbows.
Maybe it’s a bit simplistic, but Michael Jackson’s Rainbow loving Captain might be just what we need today to melt the hearts of tyrants everywhere and change the world. Our guest today is writer Robyn Pennacchia who has her pulse on all the hot topics as writer for Wonkette and other major online news sites.
Robyn thinks we’re going about it all the wrong way when it comes to sexual equality- while everyone is debating on wether Aziz Ansari is guilty of being a jerk, nobody’s asking why he never picked up on social cues in the first place.
Today we’re tackling all the gloomy, scary, nasty news that’s dividing the world and throwing some old fashioned Captain EO rainbow magic to turn the borg queen into Angelica Huston.
The Borg from Star Trek were totally ripped off of Captain Eo. Let that sink in.
