Gerald Molen, has partnered with Glenn Beck to produce films by young filmmakers.

This is the part that worries me. I don't want Beck to have a hand in creating ANY curriculum for kids

“Sneak on the Lot†is currently taught in about 250 schools around the country, but the goal is to make it part of every school or home classroom, Beck said. In showcasing student work on “Liberty Treehouse,†TheBlaze TV audience will receive a behind-the-scenes look at the filmmaking process.

“We believe this is going to be a historic partnership,†Beck said. “The goal of this partnership is to find the next Jerry Molen, the next Steven Spielberg, and encourage the making of quality films that represent the true creative spirit of America. We are going to take back our culture through quality arts-based education.â€

Interesting. I also wonder what happened to that conservative Glee project he talked about last summer.

I had not heard about that. It sounds almost surreal, like an SNL skit

Conservative Glee? So is that like regular Glee, only they sing approved music and everyone's straight?

Here are a couple of articles about the "conservative Glee project".

My guesses are that it will be a musical show where abstinence will be preached and no gay characters. I don't think the show will ever happen. Most people in the musical theater community are pro-gay. Glee has gone downhill quite a bit, but I still like the black comedy element of it and I also like some of the shots they have taken at fundies. I think Beck does exaggerate certain things about Glee. To start off, it isn't the first show set in high school that features characters having sex or teen gay characters. I think One Tree Hill had more references about sexual activity than Glee has had.

Room 222 had a story in 1971 about anti-gay bullying. For those of you who don't remember the show (and I suppose that's most of you) Room 222 was set at the fictional Walt Whitman High in LA; Room 222 specifically referred to the room of the English teacher played by Lloyd Haynes, an African-American actor. (Haynes was almost Lt Uhura on Star Trek.) I loved the show and watched it every week while it was on.

LOVED that show. I was 13 in 1971; I have a vague memory of that episode, I wonder if it's on YouTube somewhere. :think: I wish some cable channel (TV Land, are you listening?) would air the show. I don't think it's been re-run on TV for decades, if ever.

Didn't know that about Lloyd Haynes. Much as I liked him on 222, I'm glad they went with Nichelle Nichols instead! :)

There are at least some clips of Room 222 on youtube. There may be some more on hulu, but I did not check.

I wonder if Room 222 was inspired, in part, by Up the Down Staircase and even by The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, and Rachel, Rachel. I read the novel of Up the Down Staircase. It was just wonderful One thing I recall about it was that one of the students died of a self-induced abortion.

I looked up Gerald Molen's IMDB page, and he's actually produced some notable films like "Rainman" and "Jurassic Park." So at least Beck is connected with someone talented and not some total hack.

But a conservative "Glee?" As if.

Bel Kaufman, the author of Up the Down Staircase, is still with us! She's either just under or just over 100 years of age. Great book.

I think probably the most direct inspiration for "Room 222" was To Sir, With Love, great Sidney Poitier film. I loved "Room 222" so much as a kid.

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
