doglover: poonesfarm: bojon: How about he pitches in some of the cash he received for the movie.Who's to say he hasn't?Who says he has. Things like this get me. It's the same self righteous crap as "We Are the World"farkin' all the people in that room could have pooled their money and bought Africa in the 80's. The whole damn place. Instead, they wrote a crap song begging for money.farkin' don't write a piece of music and use charity to boost sales on crap. Write good music, make legit money, and donate to worthy causes with wisdom.
Apos: So....Zimmer is now the Fark pariah du jour?Wow.
Larry Mahnken: You're getting awfully pissed off about something you shouldn't be getting at all pissed off about. You should probably calm down.

Meesterjojo: What about the senseless tragedy with the 23 Hispanics in the pickup truck last week as well?14 dead, the rest injured.
ladyfortuna: Apos: So....Zimmer is now the Fark pariah du jour?Wow.According to Wikipedia, he scored The Lion King. I stopped reading at that point, I'm fine with this, and I am well aware I own at least one other soundtrack he's scored, possibly up to a half dozen or so.
calbert: so if this 'tribute piece' ever reaches the top of the Billboard chart, Facebook and Twitter will explode with, "Number 1 with a bullet" jokes./and then a few days later, Fark will greenlight a story with the same headline and everyone will go apeshiat over how funny and clever and fresh and tasteless subby is.
WxGuy1: I feel bad for those affected by the shooting in Aurora last week. I really do. However, it's interesting how we, as a society, react to such events. In an average day, ~40 people in the U.S. are murdered, ~90 die in automobile crashes/accidents, and dozens of pedestrians are killed by motor vehicles. Undoubtedly, some of these people are every bit as innocent as the folks in the movie theater were. Where are their tributes and candle-light vigils? Where are their charity drives? The innocent people who die in non-dramatic stories seem to whither away in relative obscurity compared to the pop coverage of these types of shootings (Aurora, Virginia Tech, etc.).I mention this not to diminish the events that happened in Aurora. I'm just curious as to why stories like this one "catch on". There are many innocent people killed doing things that we all do every day, so I don't think it's because "it could have been me". I suspect it's the result of the rare nature of the Aurora shooting and the relatively large number of deaths in such a small area -- it's such a "shocking" event, unlike the vehicle fatalities or murders involved innocent folks that we're now accustomed to as we watch/read the news. If people really cared about innocent people dying, then it probably shouldn't matter how they died (well, within reason). How many people have donated to the families who have lost innocent loved ones in car accidents or other fatal events since Aurora?
