From a Time article on Eclipse attempting to reach out to male audiences:
Still, when it comes to convincing bro nation, Summit has an uphill battle ahead. Adam Carolla, a former co-host of Comedy Central's The Man Show, whose testosterone-filled podcast is now the most popular on iTunes, finds Eclipse a hard sell. "How would I market Eclipse to guys? I'd tape a hundred-dollar bill to the bottom of each theater seat," he tells TIME.
I'd love to hear the phone call.
"Hi, Adam. I'm writing an article on Twilight…"
In 2008, Disney surprised Comic-Con attendees with a teaser for what would become Tron: Legacy. I wish more Comic-Con panels featured E3-press-conference-type surprises. If Disney can secretly produce a teaser, so can every other studio.
"Never. Say. Die."
In response to Congress banning film futures trading, a Consumerist reader comments:
All that box office futures trading would to [sic] is make it so that ticket prices become so unreasonable that a family of 4 just couldn't afford a night out at the movies with snacks on a regular basis… Oh wait..
Even if your family cannot attend matinee screenings, you can eat beforehand, or smuggle in snacks, and opt against premium screenings in 3D and Fake IMAX. You can also buy discounted passes at Costco.
I'm not crazy about its name, but I dig our flavour. I used to order a similar concoction when I patronized Cold Stone. Cakey ice cream + strawberries + chocolate = delicious. South Carolina's flavour is just a McDonald's Dollar Menu hot fudge sundae not that there's anything wrong with that. I used to order them when I patronized McDonald's.
KoRn's boycott of BP has caught on as more artists have committed to avoiding the use of fuel sold by BP and its affiliates on their upcoming tours for 2010.
Acts like Disturbed, Lady Gaga, Rise Against, Godsmack, Backstreet Boys, Rock Star Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, Slightly Stoopid, Rob Zombie, Megadeth, Black Label Society, Anthrax, Creed, Filter, Hellyeah and Flogging Molly have all joined the boycott.
"The message we are sending should tell all the oil companies to spend the money and take the necessary precautions to make sure this doesn't happen again." [source]
1. BP owns only a handful of the 11,000 stations that bear its brand. The majority are owned by independent dealers obligated under long-term contracts to sell BP-branded fuel.
2. The actual gasoline BP stations sell is a mixture of fuel from multiple refiners or importers. The gas in pumps may not be extracted, refined or stored by BP at all and may just get a spritz of BP additives right before it ends up at the station.
3. BP sells fuel to other retailers. Fuel from other gas stations sometimes comes directly from refineries or wholesalers that BP owns outright.
Thus: KoRn boycotting BP is like me boycotting concert venues that KoRn will play on its upcoming tour. If you want to send a message to oil companies, then boycott gasoline altogether. Tour the country via public transportation.
Papa Roach has included a special hidden track on their new album encouraging fans to do their part to fight hunger and homelessness. On the track, frontman Jacoby Shaddix asks fans to take out their phones and text a number for WhyHunger in order to donate $5 to the organization.
"It's really important to us to offer support in any way we can." [source]
If it's so important to you, then why is your plea a hidden track? It should be watermarked on every track.
Also: A hidden track? In 2010? Really?!
Oh this is rich:
KoRn's 1998 album "Follow The Leader" contains 25 tracks, the first 12 of which are hidden tracks containing five seconds of silence each. Jonathan Davis did not like the fact that the album would have ended on the 13th track (due to superstition), so they preferred to start the album on that track instead. [source]

Teach Me: Skateboard Edition

How is your job search going?
It isn't. I stopped looking.
Because I don't know what I'm doing. I want off the office bitch track, but being an office bitch is my best immediate employment option, but employers are passing on me because I don't seem interested, but I'm not interested, but I desire income, but I fear digging a deeper hole for myself professionally and spiritually…
I suspended my job search to formulate a plan and…haven't yet. It's been two weeks.
What's the hold-up?
Existential indifference? I'm interested in a lot of stuff, but I'm not passionate about anything. Like, I'm interested in becoming an EMT, but doubt my potential commitment.
Are you afraid of failure?
No, but I'd prefer to avoid it. I'm not sure I have the will to rebuild again in my 30s.
