Chloe Palka, ‘With Mockingjay, it’s a much more overt darkness–there’s nothing to distract you from it. It was such a powerful, intense movie that I actually came out of it feeling a little sick.’—Yes. It was difficult to watch. That surprised me, and excited me too.

Iris B & RKS, I think Finnick’s scene definitely has a different effect in the movie. I haven’t read the book yet, but it sounds like a really prominent moment, whereas in the movie—while it’s powerful—it wasn’t one of the scenes that stayed with me. It’s almost like it slips in there, and you have to really be listening to his monologue closely to understand what he’s saying. Still, now that I think back to it, it sends the message Iris is talking about—that the Capitol’s reach is long, and they control the victors even after they’ve won.

Sabrina Guevara, ‘We all need to tweet Shonda that there NEEDS to be a piano sex scene.’—AGREED.

Emma, thanks so much for sharing this—I had no idea.
The charity work thing is so insane. I just watched a doc on the Penn State/Jerry Sandusky scandal (“Happy Valley”) and one thing that I learned is that the worst kinds of child molesters are often “hiding” in plain sight—starting organizations to benefit children and such. Horrifying, horrifying.

Right, and I also see drug addiction as very different from rape, even if drugs and rape are both illegal.

Paul, ‘They drink, they do drugs, they sleep around, they drive drunk’—I think these are all things we accept about the celebrity lifestyle. I think rape is very different from these things, and far more difficult to accept.

Mela, a lot of people said that. It makes more sense if you see the artist’s work, who inspired these—Vanessa Beecroft. Also, I’m sure they took lots of photos where they were all mushy and sweet. These were specifically for Vogue, so ya know.

Britney’sBitch, ‘Be Successful, live in NYC, get all the dicks I can!’—I can’t be mad at this.
