General Discussion / Re: Abrahamd Lincoln the Vampire Hunter

The Washington Monument was featured because in the context of Abe being a vampire hunter it resembles an enormous fuck off STAKE.

Adam Curtis is a genius. I have seen most everything he has ever done. Highly recommend The Power of Nightmares - about the War on Terror and the genesis of both neo-conservatism and Islamic fundamentalism as we know it. That film will absolutely knock you on your ass.

Here is a larger selection of his stuff, free of course. Also, the three short films at the top about the rise and fall of television journalism are all excellent.

General Discussion / Re: Michele Bachmann - Crazy + Retarded

I can't stand Michelle Bachman, and I hope she dies in a fire, but I have to say that the infamous "hiding in the bushes" photo is total BS. You can clearly see from the shape of her body that she is sitting down, facing away from the protest. The only reason it looks like she is hiding in the bushes is because there is a hedge between her and where the person who took the photo was standing. Taken from a different angle it's a woman sat next to a hedge.

The most recent episode was the only one of the series so far to be written by Martin.

I'd never heard of this movie until I saw this thread.  But then, a lot of Oscar favorites are kind of under the radar when they come out.

Especially pretentious Oscar bait. Why else would Brad Pitt suddenly decide "oh hey I want to be in a low budget POS movie no one will bother seeing". O-S-C-A-R-B-A-I-T

Maybe because he has done that on and off his entire career? Keep talking like an ignorant cunt though, Ignorant Cunt.

Yeah, you're right. A complete Oscar-baiter. You can tell that by all the endless press he ISN'T doing. It's a real giveaway.

I'm not arguing that he is some type of movie zen master, only that Ziakas' idea that he put an ounce of commercial consideration into this (or any other) project is laughable. If you don't dig his work that's just fine. But in an age of endless sequels and diminishing returns franchises, please don't pile on and kick one of the last true great artists in the business for, you know, making art.

I thought this film was a huge disappointment and a metaphorical failure in my opinion.  Even though the visual scenes were phenomenal, it was too artsy - but annoying artsy... like that Family Guy episode where the clown is flipping the pancake in black and white.  

There's just a bunch of random scenes of different things (a stair, a spiral, etc.) and I just think that it was a metaphorical bomb, not to mention that the way the Director depicted the family was, in my view, totally unrealistic.  Oh and like 85% of the whole movie is people whispering. God that was fucking annoying.  

Stupid Oscar bait, like "American Beauty". You paid money to see it?

What an absolutely ridiculous comment. All that says is you know fuck all about movies. Terrence Malick has made all of five films (including this one) since 1973. He Made Days of Heaven in 1978 and then didn't make The Thin Red Line for TWENTY YEARS. He wasn't there at Cannes when the film premiered (and won the Palme d'Or, btw), nor has he personally spoken to any press whatsoever about this movie. I don't think he really gives a flying fuck about winning an Oscar, do you?

Too bad the show has been cancelled. NBC didn't like the pilot and shut the whole thing down. She is is the first few seasons of Friday Night Lights though, if you're desperate.

The court ruled in her favor and now she can masturbate at work

BRAZIL, May 11, 2011.- A woman aged 36 was enabled by the justice to masturbate in her workplace because she has a strange disease.

This is the story of Ana Catarina Bezerra Silvares, an employee of an accounting firm, a divorced mother of three who lives in the village Vila Velha, Espírito Santo.

The woman suffers from a rare condition known as “compulsion orgasmic”, caused by a chemical alteration in the brain region of the cortex, which leads her to masturbate several times a day to relieve the deep anguish that it causes.

Under this circumstance, Bezerra started legal proceedings with the company where she works that eventually won and that enables to masturbate for 15 minutes every two hours, besides using the computer to see erotic images that stimulate her desire.

The Brazilian newspaper North Regiao reported that the woman confessed, “There was a day I had to masturbate 47 times”, adding: “I began to suppose that this could not be normal, and decided to seek help.”

Currently, Bezerra follows a treatment that includes a potent cocktail of sedatives which gets her to “only” masturbate 18 times a day.

There is a speedboat place right next to the USS Intrepid that does rides up and down The Hudson. Will take you down by the Statue of Liberty and back. Really nice if it's good weather. The waterfront down by Chelsea is also nice.

Yep. Being made to feel as if you're drowning, over and over, while strapped helpless and upside down is just "uncomfortable", right Quintain. Nothing but a little bit of an inconvenience, really.

General Discussion / Re: World Cups to be in Russia (2018) and Qatar (2022)
« on: December 03, 2010, 01:38:55 PM »
England should have won for 2018, especially since they will have the facilities and infrastructure from the Olympics to use, and the U.S. should have won for 2022. The last World Cup in America set records for revenue and attendance at a world cup that still haven't been broken, and soccer is 10x more popular now than it was then

US had it in 1994. It's too soon to realistically get awarded it again. As for the UK, it's easy to see why they didn't get it. Putting aside their monolithic arrogance over some perceived ownership of the game puts everybody else in the world off, there is absolutely 0% room for economic growth in terms of football. England is the most saturated market in the world when it comes to football. for these hard headed old fucks at FIFA it is all about legacy. They will be the guys who brought the World Cup to the Middle East, helped developed a huge potential market and a build an infrastructure from the bottom up. If you have everything in place and ready to go, like England does, then that doesn't really play in your favor anymore. That means there is nothing new for these committee members to put their name to.

Firefly may very well be the best series ever canceled after one season.   Though Pushing Daisies makes that a "may very well be..." instead of a "definitely is..."

American Gothic...Studio 60...Twin Peaks (One and half seasons).

Some never achieve all five milestones, including those who are single or childless by choice, or unable to marry even if they wanted to because they’re gay.

Now we see what this is really about. Fag Propaganda! Probably stuff in there about niggers, too.

He doesn't have "dozens" he has three or four at a time. And he doesn't "treat them like shit." It's not like he bends one over his desk and beats her bare ass while he makes the other three take turns sucking his cock. It's like any other working environment. He just doesn't pay them cash money. They are compensated in the form of exposure for their work and a regular byline that they can add to their portfolio. I don't agree with it, but it is not at all uncommon in the field on journalism these days. Doubt me all you want. It only means that you're a fool.

The guy I was originally refering to runs a celebrity news and gossip website. He rents office space in Manhattan. His site is well designed and looks very professional, with content dating back more than two years. He has relationships with PR companies that give him access to second and third tier celebrities. His site is of sufficient stature that smaller TV networks regularly send him press kits and screeners. Smaller film distributors invite him to their press screenings. His site attacts reasonable levels of advertising interest. And he is making money, otherwise he wouldn't be doing it. He runs, to anyone on the outside looking in, a legitimate business. He just doesn't pay his interns because he seemingly doesn't have to. What are you not getting about this?

Alright, let's follow your thinking through then. Suppose you reply to one of those adverts, saying that you are interested in their unpaid internship position. Do they then, in your mind, send you a reply saying: "Hahaha, we don't really offer unpaid internships. It was just lulz and you fell for it, you bellend!" Is that what happens?

Taket, you're right. Ads on Craigslist offering the very thing you claim does not exist in no way disprove your assumptions about said things not existing.

Look, here are just a few examples pulled off of Craigslist for NY writing/editing jobs, all from the last few days.

This one promises an internship at "one of the top blogging networks in the world." It's unpaid.

This one looking for someone to fact check for them, where duties will also include light proof reading. It's unpaid.

Here is one for a Literary Agency. It's unpaid.

Do you see what I'm getting at?
