WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO: Launch a federal investigation on the connection between media coverage of mass shootings and their occurrences.
The media needs to be regulated in terms of how coverage of mass shootings happens. Too much of the focus is on the perpetrator and too little is on the victims. The idea that possible future attackers can be spurred by the idea of fame and recognition over any alternative is too prevalent to ignore. The need for special attention to this issue is well articulated by Dr. Park Dietz in this video:
Censorship is of course a big issue, and this petition is not looking for that, but rather ways to encourage responsible media coverage that won’t lead to future attacks on our children and citizens.
Somebody told a real life woman that her skin was too brown to play an imaginary creature. That basically in the whole fictional world of Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, where you have dragons and trolls and talking trees, where you draw the line, where imagination is capped out, no more room, is for a brown hobbit.
Like firery eyeball thing, no problem but don’t even try to imagine a Samoan elf. That shit will blow your mind.
Wherein Wyatt Cenac remains perfect, and completely articulates our Mission Statement.
i can’t fucking breathe.
LE’TS BUY HOOKERS!
Mainly I’m worried about the three Hobbit movies, not because I think they don’t have enough material to make three good movies (there’s plenty in Tolkien’s other writings to fill it in), but because this decision is coming so late in the game.
We’re half a year away from the release of the first one and they’re going to restructure it into a trilogy?
- Mom: There is no one on tv more sexy then Thomas Gibson and Shemar Moore.
- Me: Are we watching the same show?
- Mom: Yeah. It's all about that fine piece of chocolate.
- Me: I don't know about you... but I do like Twizzlers.
- Mom: What?
- Me: Matthew Gray Gubler, Mother. Matthew Gray Gubler. Tall, skinny, and sweet.
- Mom: What's wrong with you?
- Me: I watch this show and am on Tumblr waaaaaay too much.
- Mom: What's Tumblr..?
- Me: So. How was your day?
