Yeah this is an uplifting story. I remember him purchasing the horse for the stuntwoman from watching the DVD extras and her being very emotional about it and it always stood out as a cool act of pure generosity. I’m glad these horses got their 15 minutes of fame and a cushy life afterwards. I kind of just assumed Read more

I love the ability to use Hangout on desktop. When I forgot my phone or when I expect to be put on hold for an hour, making call from my desktop with my headset is so much easier and better. Read more

Anyone worried about the “cultural appropriation of nerdom” loves Trump.

“Imagine finding out to the status of your relationship through a tabloid,” Max said on Instagram Saturday morning. ‘While [you’re] in the middle of filming a biopic movie about a pastor in a Christian church whose intention of the film is to help people. God bless.” Read more

I would still put Duckie at the no 2 spot for live-action Lexes, but I’m an Old and can’t let Gene Hackman be dethroned. Read more

I already answered the stats question in another comment. It’s not hard to understand given what she just said about McPhee. If you’re reducing someone to their income, age, race and gender to make assumptions about their politics as she had just done about a rich millennial white woman, Reiner ticks a lot of Read more

In addition to what other commenters have said about Rob Reiner’s progressive credentials, just a week ago, he and the surviving cast of The Princess Bride (minus Fred Savage and Malcolm Storry) livestreamed a table read of the screenplay (plus a Q&A after) to raise funds for Wisconsin Democrats. So that tweet isn’t Read more

If you didn’t know anything about Rob Reiner, you could have at least taken 30 seconds to Google him. He’s been a highly vocal (and financial) advocate for civil rights for 50 years. He helped start the American Foundation for Equal Rights. He’s repeatedly bankrolled challenges to Right-wing legal attacks on women, Read more

If this had been mentioned as one of those links at the bottom of a Dirt Bag post then fine, I don’t think it would have seemed that weird. Read more

I see most of these profiles as essentially similar to when a celebrity goes on a late night show, you’re not really expecting a hard hitting grilling. If Seth Meyers took a job from Judd Apatow after interviewing him we wouldn’t be concerned, I’m not really concerned about this either. Read more

Nothing more than a thinly veiled attempt to attack Tiegen with the hope that she will respond and make you famous. And you’re jeopardizing another woman’s career in the process? This poor writer has been through enough—I read the Business Insider article about her and other BIPOC staff’s mistreatment at Bon Appetit. Read more

oh no, someone who wrote a celebrity puff piece got offered a more secure job during an uncertain time. Truly, will journalistic ethics ever recover? Read more

Joan’s efforts to reach the subject would involve sending off a random emailto marieclaire@gmail.com she doesn’t expect to reach the subject, but then making sure to note her efforts to reach them as part of the story, because in journalism it’s the minimal effort that counts.

It almost seems like Apple wants the antitrust proceedings against it to succeed. I hope Apple will get what it’s so heavily pushing for.

The whole reason this scam works is because you’re targeting people who don’t have enough experience to realize they’re being scammed. Read more

The issue being, until recently, people didn’t talk money. Artists had no idea what proper scale for their work was because the industry discourages discussing payments (and contracts sometimes forbade it as well). It is only recently that artists started really talking, comparing, and figuring out the degree to which Read more

Essentially, yes, they are tricking people into signing terrible contracts. It’s predatory because this publisher (and loads more, BTW - they’re pretty much all predators when they think they can get away with it) is intentionally screwing people who don’t know better and can’t afford representation; preying on young Read more

It’s not exposure if you can’t tell anybody about it for three years. Three years is way too little, way too late, if you want to ride the wave of something that might be forgotten in three years.
