commented on Mitt Romney's Hotmail Account Was Hacked
These two sentences from the post:
"Still, it's funny that the Romney campaign is making a big fuss out of the hacked e-mail"
"Romney campaign responded by saying, "the proper authorities are investigating this crime and we will have no further comment on it."
don't really match. Explain to me how saying "no comment" is making a "big fuss."

The Sibyl Hanes website link isn't working. Are you sure you spelled her name right? I can't find any independent information on this designer (i.e. Google search turned up this article and nothing else).

commented on I Walked Out of The Hunger Games After 45 Minutes
They took an exceptional young adult novel and turned it into a mediocre movie. I don't blame any of the actors. I blame the director.
As a side note, if you ever get the chance to make the movie version of a wildly popular book series, please pay attention to the details. Every time you get something small wrong, it's like a little "fuck-you" to all the fans of the book.
To the makers of this film:
Buttercup the cat is yellow, not black and white
Rue dies before Katniss can cut her free, not after.
Maybe you can add in the cannon-fires for the deaths of the boy tribute from 2 and for Rue because you forgot in the theatrical release.
Peeta has blue eyes, not brown (What's up with that? Did the actor refuse to wear colored contacts?)
The Game Maker didn't stop Katniss and Peeta until they'd put the berries in their mouth. NOT WHEN THEY WERE JUST HOLDING THEM.
****end of spoilers****
I know that some will say that I'm being too nitpicky or not nitpicky enough. They certainly changed many more things than what I just listed but those I could write off as needed changes due to time restrictions. The ones I listed seemed like they were changed for no good reason.

@5 I can understand that. I miss inconsequential details all the time when I am reading. It's not like the author went out of her way to say, "Black! Rue is black, people!"
It really makes no difference. I wish everyone realized that.
Also, the actress that plays Katniss should really be some sort of hispanic/italian mix because that is what the book description sounded like to me. But I'm not bitching because it doesn't matter that much.

**wonder twin powers activate! In the form of a wet blanket!**
When conservatives/republicans did this during the 2008 Obama/Clinton democratic caucus, it was a classless move. When liberals/democrats do it now, it's still a classless move.
Show some respect for our democratic process, please.
