It’s been fun but I wish Obama would have used it in more of the style of FDR’s Fireside chats. Obama promotes policies like healthcare reform when he makes these social media or viral video appearances, but he could have done just a little more to really connect with the people on an intimate level, especially if he’s delving into social media territory anyway.
Granted, he did a Reddit AMA!

Could be a massive hit but she needs to nail the music video – her last two have been so-so

There are details we don’t know that will likely leak out over time… quit during the middle of a tour? Something’s not right.

My first reaction: I’m so glad he’s working!
He certainly hit quite the slump after Superman. He did a fine enough job in the role though.

I just finished 5 seasons of Archer in about 6 days (I’m a student, and it’s not midterm season yet). Sue me.
I’m genuinely afraid to tell anyone I know about this accomplishment, because that’s a disturbing amount of time.
But – I will say, that powering through the series gave me an attachment so powerful that having to wait… oh, 6 years… to have accomplished couldn’t have ever done.

Adam Smith wrote an interesting piece about this idea in 1759: http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Adam_Smith#Part_III

There’s been an interesting amount of criticism regarding supporting Charlie Hebdo magazine – which some see as hate-fuelled and outlandishly offensive – in conjunction with supporting free speech.
The way I see it, if someone massacred members of the Westboro Baptist Church, I would want to stand by them. Not because I support their hate, but because I support their right to hate everyone and not be killed for it.
In that sense, I would love to own a copy of Charlie Hebdo and support their right to offend everyone.

I’ll be seeing Mockingjay again.
The movie felt a little fragmented for me. Looking back, I wouldn’t be able to repeat back to you a coherent beginning-middle-end, because it felt like snapshots of moments in District 13.
It’s as if they took the first half of the book Mockingjay and put it on screen (of course) with the downside being that there isn’t a full storyline there; it just feels like one half of a film.
The acting and visuals were extremely well done. But I think once Mockingjay Part II comes out, I’ll be able to full appreciate the Mockingjay story on screen.

Batshit crazy but visually stunning, as usual. If the song were stronger, we’d actually have a pretty classic Gaga formula here. Unfortunately the music itself has been lacking the pop sound it needs to catapult her back up to her previous glory.

Was thinking the same thing. Like, eerily similar to Hilton.
