I really, really hope you're wrong about this. I am hoping Vaughn can surprise the shit out of us all in True Detective. And unlike commenters 1 and 2, I find Ben Stiller to be infinitely more unfunny to the point of offense.

Fuck the Easter Bunny. He is an abomination.
Feb 28, 2015 Stabs commented on Do You Like Horror Films? DON’T WATCH THE TRAILER FOR The Lazarus Effect!.
This is a problem with SO many trailers today, but you're right that it's most prevalent with horror trailers. So many times the first 45 seconds to minute of the trailer I'm thinking "Alright, I'm interested." and by the minute and a half mark all the curiosity and mystery is gone. My husband has actually told me numerous times "OK, turn the trailer off if you actually want to see this." and then I realize he's right. I really liked what Paranormal Activity 3 did, which was use a bunch of scares in the trailer that Didn't end up in the movie! I thought that was pretty brilliant, and should be done more often. I remember the trailer for The conjuring giving away most of the best scares, and the trailer for The Town giving away basically the entire plot complete with what I assume was supposed to be the twist at the end. I wish they would stop doing this. Is there any way to find out who is responsible for individual trailers? Aren't they outsourced to specialists who do pretty much only trailers?

I think we should look a little more in-depth into this pink asshole thing.

I support this Anonymous dude. Cheat on your spouse and a little jizz on your personal effects is the least you deserve.

The score is light and airy, kind of understated. I was expecting a little more, I felt like his Social Network score elevated the movie 2-3 entire points out of 10. Gone Girl's score is pretty perfect, if just a little too quiet. I'm listening to it while I read the book. I'm enjoying it very much. It's streaming free on NPR.com.

@48
those precautions are useless if it's the cloud itself that gets hacked and not these people's personal accounts. The sheer volume of photos these people claim to have is evidence of a monumental breach in security on the other end.
And @40
Comparing taking compromising photos of yourself and sending them to an ambiguous server you know absolutely nothing about is not at all similar to taking a dump in the privacy of your own home. And NSA can probably see you doing that too.
Sep 3, 2014 Stabs commented on Those Leaked Celebrity Nudes: Have You Looked?.
I looked, my husband looked I don't feel bad and he said "It's a great day for America!". The people whose photos got leaked don't feel any better or worse about it give or take a few million people seeing them.

I DO feel sympathy for them the same way I'd feel sympathy for someone whose iPhone got stolen after they'd left it on the passenger seat of their unlocked car on a shady street corner. It sucks, but I really don't understand how people put so much trust in "The Cloud". Even if it weren't for the fact that millions of people trust this ambiguous cloud they know literally nothing about to store all the important info in their lives, the NSA is still a thing. Nothing digital stays private. NOTHING. I don't even know a whole lot about about computers or any of that, but I do know that every guy you hire to fix your computer is looking for images to steal, and Obama has seen your nudes already.

The people at the apple store looked at me like I was stupid when I told them I didn't trust The Cloud, who's stupid now? It's like instead of a safety deposit box in a bank you just give your shit to some guy in a really nice van and don't even ask him where he's taking it.

Also, to hell with all the feminist bullshit about "psychic rape" and someone trying to destroy or debase these women. People like titties, that is the beginning and the end of it.

Glad he brought up all the military equipment. How long after a crowd started gathering in Ferguson do you think someone said "Hey! Let's try out that new MRAP and the tear gas! I haven't seen what the gas masks look like on me yet! Give a bunch of boys a bunch of toys and they will want to play with them. And the point about the cops aiming the guns when soldiers would NEVER do that was also a very important one.
Aug 15, 2014 Stabs commented on SL Letter of the Day: Potential Murder, She Wrote.
This is pretty creepy. I mean I LOVE my "murder shows" as my husband calls them, but I don't watch murder porn. I've never thought about killing my husband (which, let's be honest, can't be all THAT uncommon). so for me the "murder shows" are just fascinating because I can't comprehend how people can do that sort of thing. This guy sounds like he's studying.
