Oh for frel's sake, pearl clutching much?

@12, as opposed to a paper copy of the Constitution or a bible made, marketed, and sold by a for-profit entity?

The fine for concealing the source of a $15,000 contribution should really be $15,000.

"We hear your voice"

And yet the photo is posted sideways.

Goldy, I mostly agree with your position, but you are in fact a heartless, blood-thirsty issue whore.
Aug 20, 2013 lostboy commented on Who's the Bigger Asshole: The Movie Pirate or the Loud Moviegoer?.
So, was this video excerpted from the (speaking) pirate's own recording, or was it recorded by a second pirate in the same theater? (And if the former, was it publicized by the pirate himself or one of his customers?)

Each possibility suggests its own interesting kind of assholery.

Holy Mother of Joss Whedon, 40% of women have tried anal?! And more than 1 in 5 would tolerate someone ejaculating on their face??!!!

Both of those numbers are way higher than I'd have guessed for non-porn-stars.

The only new aspect to this is the removal of the motorcycle engine.

COMTE @3, thanks for the Netflix recommendation.
May 7, 2013 lostboy commented on Ray Harryhausen.
Harryhausen was a genius pioneer whose acclaim is richly deserved, and it is well that we mourn his passing.

This, though:
… I've yet to see a digital monster that impresses me the way a good Harryhausen creature impresses me.

strikes me as rank sentimentality.

Sure, there is plenty of crap CGI creature work out there, just as there was plenty of crap stop-motion and optical effects work by Harryhausen wannabes back in the day. Effects have in fact progressed, though, and the work of serious CGI artists has long since surpassed the best of the stop-motion and miniature-model era.

The skeletons in Jason and the Argonauts are still amazing, though.
