"Tipper, what's that sticker sticking on my CD?
Is that some kind of warning to protect me?
Freedom of choice needs a stronger, stronger voice.
You can stamp out the source, but you
can't stop creative thoughts.

Ah, Tipper come on, ain't you been getting it on?
Ask Ozzy, Zappa or me.
We'll show you what it's like to be free.

Ah, Tipper come on, it's just a smoke
screen for the real problems.
S&L deficit, the homeless, the environment.

Hey, hey all you senators wives.
Better take a good look at your
own lives.
Before you go preaching to me.
You're definitions of obscenity.

Ah, Tipper come on, ain't you been getting it on?
Ask Ozzy, Zappa or me.
We'll show you what it's like to be free.

The irony it semes it seems to me
it's un-American policy.
Yeah, we'e come so far but still only to
find people like you with ignorant minds.

Ah, Tipper come on, ain't you been getting it on?
Ask Ozzy, Zappa or me.
We'll show you what it's like to be free."

Yes, but what about genre films like Cannibal Holocaust, Last House on The Left, and House on The Edge of The Park? The BBFC have been a lot more leniant on them lately despite containing graphic sexual violence.
I wonder if they'd be so liberal under the new guidelines.

I don't think they would go back and reverse previous rulings on the films mentioned above. I'd be more cynical and suggest the Board are just trying to safeguard their future in a market where film censorship is becoming increasingly meaningless...

I'm curious about that also.

I'm guessing Tom Six is going to have trouble getting the Human Centipede 3 a classification. Hell, even without the new guidelines he probably would have had difficulties because its apparently going to make part 2 look like "A disney film", and we all know how much the BBFC adore that one!

Probably. I recall him saying something similar when preparing to make the first sequel.

The state of the media....The printed press, the Leveson inquirey and why I pick on the Daily Mail - YouTube

I really have given up hope for the media in general.

Check this one out too.

The way he rips Tookey is priceless.

(Just thought i'd say that he mentions me just before the 30 second mark! Wasn't expecting that the first time I watched it!)
