On the Record Reviews

    I dunno where I've been, but in all of the MeToo stuff I never heard Simmons name. I was happy to see the discussion on the radio show where the hosts were questioning their own biases. I feel like that more than anything is my take away. Question my thoughts and why they exist in the first place. Where have I been influenced and does it represent how I want to think going forward. I'm grateful for docs like this that allow me to listen to other people's experiences.

    An important documentary about a devastating subject that is rarely discussed.

    Oh God, just the opening of this was the same old tired narrative that we have seen way too many times. I almost turned it off after 5 minutes because I knew where it was going. I have way too much to say, but none of it would pass the moderator muster. I didn't even know what this was going to be about. I literally thought it was going be about actually vinyl/CD history with the vinyl poster. Plus so much of what was being said was just inaccurate either from trying to romanticize their past (or un-romanticize) or they just have poor memories regarding the historical aspect of the 90s etc. Regarding the sexual allegations, I mean, they just didn't make any sense. The first one, he harassed her, but she kept working with him over and over again. What happened to strong women saying no? Is she saying her career and earnings were more important to keep than walking away from being harassed? This sounds more like a regret story than I was trying to get away but got forced into something story. Too many gaps in what she is telling us. It was just the most bizarre story I have ever heard. Just to recap she left the bar without him trying to get away from hi, but somehow ended up in front of his apartment where he grabbed her and asked her to go upstairs. Even though she wanted to get away from him, she agreed. Once upstairs she goes into the bedroom. You know, the bedroom. Because why not after being harassed by him over and over again and not wanting him near her. Then of course he does what all men do, come into the bedroom fully naked with a rubber on, slams her on the bed, and once she sees the handcuffs on the wall she gets scared and passes out. Yup, you know how it goes. Guess what. Next she is in the bathtub with him naked. We'll leave out all the details in between of what actually happened and how she got into the bathtub with him, after all, those are just minor details. Then she tells him she is leaving and she walks home 22 blocks, even though she can grab a cab. She gets home and actually takes a cold shower with ALL her clothes on. Because that is what we do. But she kept working there and even sat on his lap. You know that's what rapists do. They beg their victim to keep working there and offer them more money. Why did they go to the media and not the cops? Don't get me started on this. If you want to believe that 10% story with 90% missing you go ahead. There was ZERO evidence to back her up, except her hollow story. The second story one was a 5 second description. Literally. From then on, the stories just seem to get worse and worse. They literally seemed to be making up their stories as they went along. It must be sad to look at life through race and gender. smh They selective only picked Over all too much minutia and nonsensical details to fill up a documentary. Who cares about the album she put together? You can see they had practically no one in this documentary that was from the time. It was just a few nobodies. That should tell you a lot about the legitimacy. This could have been a 30 minute segment on youtube. Feminist gibberish. Overly broad allegations and trying to make connections between things that don't have any evidence to be connected, like the Clarence Thomas and lynching. It was pretty outrageous how far these women are willing to go. It's ironic because the very thing they claim to fight like collectivism they actually use as evidence for their own claims. You can easily skip this.So predictable...
