Listen up big, meanie toy manufacturers, your customers are as mad as hell and they’re not going to take it anymore! This is Riley, a little girl whose not afraid to speak her mind. “Why do all the girls have to buy princesses? Some girls like superheroes!” Damn straight.

As a girl who preferred LEGOs to Barbie, I can sympathize. Why does everything for girls have to be color-coded pink and purple? Why can’t a boy have a princess doll and girl have a superhero toy? Why when you order a Happy Meal you must specify boy’s toy or girl’s toy? Listen up Big Toy, Riley’s an example of the coming revolution, better get ready to change with the times or be left behind.

Whether it’s Bronies or sites like Superheros are for girls, too! I think the message is clear, toys should be gender neutral, let kids play with what they want!

F*** You, Stephenie Meyer. F*** You.

In a recent interview this stunningly good writer did with twilightseriestheories.com, (note my usage of sarcastic italics) she has basically admitted she is not working on the next book in the Twilight series that every fangirl and boy are wishing their poor little hearts out for.  In this next book, it was rumored that she would be writing it from the perspective of Edward Cullen instead of Bella Swan. Here is the quote, in case you care:

I know that’s what everyone cares about.  I also know that the right answer would be for me to say “Oh yah, it’s done! And it’ll be out next month!”  But that’s not true.  It’s also not true that I’ve got a ton of work done on it, and that’s what I’m working on.  What’s true is that I’m really burned out on vampires.  And, I don’t want to write it badly.  So I want to wait until I’m excited about the material again, and I’m excited about Edward, and that it’s something that’s motivating.  You know, when a story is keeping me up at night, and I’m waking up at 4 am in the morning and thinking ‘Yes! That is what is what should happen in this moment!’  Then that is when I can write with happiness! So, right now it feels like homework… it really does.  And when things feel like homework they go very, very slowly for me.

All right, so a few things…you’re sick of vampires?  YOU, Stephenie if I may call you that, YOU are sick of vampires?  You’re the whole damned reason that we real vampire fans are sick of vampires!!  You don’t get to back out now, no!  You have to stick it out and write horrible vampire novels until your fucking hands fall off, or an Edward Cullen look-a-like actually tries to drink your blood and leaves you for dead on the side of the roa–okay.  That was harsh.  Moving on…

Matt Damon is filming Adrian Grenier in what appears to be a PSA for some legit company. Adrian seems to have trouble and trips up his lines quite a few times. Damon, after a few minutes of correcting him just snaps! Jeremy Piven is behind the camera with Matt, which is leading people to speculate it may be a setup for a scene in Entourage… But see for yourself. It is WAY to realistic anger to be acted. Matt Damon is a great actor…But this great? I hope it isn’t real, I had alot of respect for him as a non-Hollywood Douchebag.
