F*** Me, Ray Bradbury (NSFW)

This is so outrageous-- kind of a birthday present for the 90-year-old... or not. But funny.

It's awesome I posted it to my blog as soon as I saw it.

I was going to use this as a post for my blog. I have to confess that I grinned and chuckled watching it. Then, I felt bad.

I love Ray Bradbury. The man is ninety years old today. He is my inspirtation and has given me so much. Watching the video, I thought: "this does cross the line." But what disturbed me more was a picture someone posted of Bradbury before his laptop, allegedly watching the video in question.

Maybe I'm wrong, maybe BStearns is right and Bradbury guffawed watching it. However, having heard him in intervews recently, knowing that he has withdrawn considerably and that he is indeed quite conservative and cantankerous, I find it hard to believe he was enamoured by the video.

Bradbury is a public figure. But he feels like my grandfather, and I can't help being overly sensative for him.

@Stu-- I wonder if Bradbury spends too much time worrying about it? I hope he thought it was funny but, to be honest, I'm not going to worry about it because I think it was meant in an affectionate-- if outrageous-- way. I know that it has been received in a way the shows great respect for Bradbury. Crass sure, but not meant to be malicious.
