uh, isn’t he just kind of paraphrasing Obama’s election night speech from ’08?
Michael Shannon. That is all.
Bangs is clearly the Dr. Dre of third-world green screen rap videos. This guy is Bruno Mars, at best.
First annual videogum carwash? All proceeds go to this fucking thing.
BECAUSE STAR WARS. Ask your granddad. It’s their generation’s “Tyler Perry’s I Can Do Bad All By Myself”

I’m really happy for them, Ray J will make a wonderful husband.
I got to see Puncture at Tribeca this spring. It was incredibly okay.
on Jeremy Irons: “The guy slapped my ass one time, literally just slapped it and then had this creepy fuckin’ grin on his face. Then he mumbled something about ‘Hakuna Matata’ and sprinted away. Asshole.”
Remember when Anna Paquin won an oscar for being like 6 yrs old in The Piano? THE WORST. Now she’s just naked in True Blood a lot.
Gabe, you’re going to be a weird dad.

My thoughts exactly. Now we know where they got the costumes/models for “Pon de Floor..”
I’d still argue that the production is financially a no-brainer for the city though. The fee that the city will be collecting from the production companies will be VERY substantial, even after the breaks and incentives that most likely brought it the Pittsburgh in the first place. That’s millions that they’ll hopefully put towards infrastructure and public works, as well as urban renewal projects like you said.
This sounds more like Synechdoche And The City, if you know what I mean.
Sometimes I think this lindsay lohan continual train wreck thing will stop being funny and just be kind of sad. Then I see stuff like that and I’m like: “Nope.”
Every time I want to hate on Tru Blood and the people who watch it I remind myself that I watched all of Lost. And then I sigh deeply.
It’s just weird, this idea of Pittsburgh you have that it’s some urban fortress that we have to defend against the suburbanites, or whatever. Sure, there’s a lot of people that don’t go downtown a lot. But people commute to the city from the suburbs every day. Kids that grow up in the suburbs move into the city to go to school or work. I work in an office with a lot of both. It seems like you’re implying that “true city-dwellers” have more of a right to be here than anyone else, and that’s just a weird and entitled way to think.
Haha. “All the streets are shut down” ? Well, a few of them are. And yeah, that causes traffic problems but just leave 15 minutes early for work like everyone else instead of whining about it. Also, “For starters people from the Suburbs NEVER set foot in downtown”… You do realize that most people that work downtown (in Pittsburgh and most cities) commute from the many surrounding suburbs?
Okay, admittedly my hometown (Pittsburgh) doesn’t always have a lot going on in the summer (unless you count the Pirates, but nobody counts the Pirates), so yeah the Batman thing is kind of big! Especially for a part-time unpaid intern who has little else to do, I am pretty excited about them filming here. Last week I went to the set (consisting of a couple blocked-off streets downtown) and took some pictures. Then I got yelled at by a 17 year old “production assistant” in a Ne-Yo t-shirt for taking pictures. Later I saw Chris Nolan and JGL (JGL!). Even later they had everyone vacate a street despite uproarious complaints from corporate suit-types on their lunch breaks who AIN’T CARE ABOUT NO BATMAN. I guess my point is that large scale movie productions are still kind of new to this area, and so yeah, people are kind of freaking out about it. Sure, big action movies get made all the time but not here, so who’s gonna be that asshole who sees the batmobile flying down a street covered in fake snow in the 95 degree summer heat and is like “OH GAWD WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL” ?
