Idris Elba responds to recent James Bond rumours

"He was white and Scottish. Period. That is who James Bond is, was. But now [they are] suggesting that the next James Bond should be Idris Elba, a black Briton, rather than a white from Scotland. But that's not who James Bond is, and I know it’s racist to probably point this out." — RL

Douchebag demands the $650 in 'The Interview' tickets he purchased & wanted to scalp returned

- Some douche in Ohio bought $650 in tickets for 'The Interview' right before its VOD announcement was made last week. He bought it for the sole intention to scalp them.
- Since most people ended up seeing it online, no one went to the theater, and douche wasn't able to scalp the tickets.
- He demanded a refund since he couldn't sell the tickets, but the manager said no (despite there being a refund policy) because they knew he only bought them to scalp them.


''Brokeback Mountain'' Author Wishes She’d Never Written The Story


''I wish I’d never written the story. It’s just been the cause of hassle and problems and irritation since the film came out. Before the film it was all right… In Wyoming they won’t read it. A large section of the population is still outraged. But that’s not where the problem was. I’m used to that response from people here, who generally do not like the way I write. But the problem has come since the film. So many people have completely misunderstood the story. I think it’s important to leave spaces in a story for readers to fill in from their own experience, but unfortunately the audience that Brokeback reached most strongly have powerful fantasy lives. And one of the reasons we keep the gates locked here is that a lot of men have decided that the story should have had a happy ending. They can’t bear the way it ends — they just can’t stand it. So they rewrite the story, including all kinds of boyfriends and new lovers and so forth after Jack is killed. And it just drives me wild. They can’t understand that the story isn’t about Jack and Ennis. It’s about homophobia; it’s about a social situation; it’s about a place and a particular mindset and morality. They just don’t get it. I can’t tell you how many of these things have been sent to me as though they’re expecting me to say, ‘Oh great, if only I’d had the sense to write it that way.’ And they all begin the same way — I’m not gay, but?.?.?.?The implication is that because they’re men they understand much better than I how these people would have behaved. And maybe they do. But that’s not the story I wrote. Those are not their characters. The characters belong to me by law.''

— Author Annie Prouix explaining to Paris Review the response to her short story Brokeback Mountain that was adapted into the Academy Award-winning 2005 film.
