Green Day, Joan Jett, Lou Reed among Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees





*The induction ceremony is April 18, 2015 in Cleveland.
*This was Green Day's first year of eligibility.
*With Ringo's induction, all four Beatles will have been inducted as solo artists (the band was inducted in 1988).

I'm so excited for Green Day. Billie Joe's performed with Joan recently and I hope this means we can expect a collaboration at the ceremony. I'm only a couple hours away from Cleveland so I'm now so incredibly anxious about trying to get tickets for the ceremony!

Seth Rogen and James Franco respond to Sony hacking scandal




- "I can't definitively say I know the ramifications of the storm. I mean, I don't know if the hacking honestly is because of our movie, definitively or not," Rogen said. "I know that it has been the center of a lot of media attention lately. It is weird because we just wanted to make a really funny, entertaining movie and the movie itself is very silly and wasn't meant to be controversial in any way."

- Rogen doesn't regret making it. He said that it's the responsibility of others "who are much smarter than me" to analyze the possible repercussions of making a film like this. His job, he said, is just to make people laugh.

- “To be fair,” Franco, “it satirizes American culture just as much.”

- "At this point, it's too late to have any second thoughts. I mean, no, I think again, I like the movie. I can't in my head over-connect everything surrounding it with the movie itself," he said. "When I've seen the movie with 30-plus audiences in 30-plus movie theaters and every time, they really like it, that's what I have to keep coming back to. We set out to make a movie that was really entertaining to audiences and I genuinely think we did that. And that's where my job ends."

The MPAA wants to kill pirate sites at the root



  • Most anti-piracy tools take one of two paths: they either target the server that's sharing the files (pulling videos off YouTube or taking down sites like The Pirate Bay) or they make it harder to find (delisting offshore sites that share infringing content). But leaked documents reveal a frightening line of attack that's currently being considered by the MPAA: What if you simply erased any record that the site was there in the first place?

  • You could still type http://www.piratebay.se into your browser, but without a working DNS record, you wouldn't be able to find the site itself. If a takedown notice could blacklist a site from every available DNS provider, the URL would be effectively erased from the internet.

  • It's still unclear whether the plan would prove technically feasible or whether the legal arguments would survive in court, but the document suggests the MPAA hasn’t backed away from its goal of blocking any site that shares pirated content, and it isn’t afraid to leave systems like DNS as collateral damage. Even worse, while the rest of the web seems to have moved on from SOPA, the MPAA is still using it as a playbook.

Rupert Murdoch is still a piece of shit

In the midst of the siege that has gripped Sydney for the past 26 hours now, Rupert Murdoch had no qualms about making sure he reinforce his status as The Worst despite the horrendous situation at hand. Man Haron Monis held 17 hostages over a period of 16 hours in a Lindt cafe in the centre of Sydney's central business district before the terror came to an end when police stormed the cafe after gunfire was heard from inside. Three people are dead, one being the gunman and the other two being innocent hostages. Murdoch however, was mainly concerned with the fact that his historically terrible and always insensitive Australian newspaper The Daily Telegraph was the first to capture the scene.

Sony hackers threathen a September 11-like attack



The message reads:
We will clearly show it to you at the very time and places “The Interview” be shown, including the premiere, how bitter fate those who seek fun in terror should be doomed to.
Soon all the world will see what an awful movie Sony Pictures Entertainment has made.
The world will be full of fear.
Remember the 11th of September 2001.
We recommend you to keep yourself distant from the places at that time.
(If your house is nearby, you’d better leave.)
Whatever comes in the coming days is called by the greed of Sony Pictures Entertainment.
All the world will denounce the SONY.

Natalie Portman: "Mike Nichols Saved Me."



Natalie remembers the point in her career when she was getting flack for playing Padme Amidala in the second installment of the Star Wars franchise. Mike was working with her in a stage production of Seagull and vouched for her to be cast in Cold Mountain. Nichols would eventually cast her in the film adaptation of Closer (co-starring Julia Roberts, Clive Owen, and Jude Law). She credits him for rebooting her career (which in a nutshell means her eventual casting in Garden State and V for Vendetta).

"[...] everyone thought I was a horrible actress. I was in the biggest-grossing movie of the decade, and no director wanted to work with me."

Just to tie it up in a bow, Natalie won the Oscar for Best Actress in 2011 for her performance in Black Swan

Tom Hiddleston Round-Up Post: Some 'Kong: Skull Island' updates and Neil Gaiman on 'The Sandman'


Universal has moved Legendary’s King Kong origins movie — now titled Kong: Skull Island — from Nov. 4, 2016, to March 10, 2017.

The film will be released in 3D. The studio and Legendary announced the 2016 date for Skull Island during Comic-Con in July, then disclosed in September that Tom Hiddleston was on board to star with Jordan Vogt-Roberts directing.

John Gatins (“Flight”) and Max Borenstein (“Godzilla”) wrote the script, set in King Kong’s home as a team of explorers ventures deep inside the primordial island. Legendary said the story honors the foundations of existing King Kong lore created in the iconic 1933 film.

Legendary’s Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni will produce and Alex Garcia will exec produce.

Hiddleston will also star in Legendary’s upcoming Crimson Peak horror film from director Guillermo del Toro.

Bill Cosby's Daughter Thinks Rape Accusers Should Go to Prison...




Evin Cosby writes on her Facebook page:

Rape is a serious allegation and it is suppose to be taken VERY seriously but so is Falsely accusing someone. When someone rapes a person they go to prison. THAT should also happen to the person that has wrongfully accused an innocent victim.They are not ONLY destroying innocent people's life they are ALSO making it hard for the MEN and Women to find justice when they have been raped.

In the Most Shocking News of 2014...



...Mickey Rourke's 29-year-old opponent in the 62-year-old actor's grand "return" to the boxing ring last month in Russia was indeed - gasp - paid to take a dive.

Elliot Seymour, a mentally ill homeless man with a career 1-9 record, told (who else?) TMZ that he was paid $10,000 to throw the fight by going down from a body shot in the fourth round, and was paid another five grand upon his return to the U.S. for a total of $15,000.

He said that he was specifically instructed not to hit Rourke in the head, but also believed that Rourke did not know of the fix.

However, Seymour, who has since consequentially been banned from boxing in New Jersey, later recanted his story: he was actually paid to fight, not to lose, and he lost because he only had one month to train.

It’s been a while since we’ve made fun of Blake Lively’s pet project, Preserve. From describing an ice cream sundae as “a message from the subconscious,” to “being so bold as to posit that a barbecue is an inherently medieval affair,” this site can be hilariously pretentious. Click behind the cut to enjoy some snippets from their newer posts. Blake may have read the previous ONTD comments because the new content is nowhere near as bad as the earlier posts, but there are still some amusing things in here!
