Between the rollover pop-up adds and the rest of the adds, Salon is pretty much farking unreadable these days.

Yes, I realize my mouse pointer crossed some advertising real estate on it's way to something else.   That doesn't mean I want to be interrupted by your farking video overlay.

Well, if that's your standard, subby, then I don't see any "comedic" actors in that slideshow...

I like Silverman, but damn was she being a hypocritical coont by complaining that people made fun of her at James Franco's roast.

Silverman was awesome in Way of the Gun.

Yea, after starting the slideshow, another ad pops up. Closed the page. Besides their auto refresh for the front page is annoying also. I'll be looking at headlines and all of a sudden the whole page auto refreshes and the headlines are moved around. Salon has one of the most reader unfriendly layouts.
 
2013-10-05 02:54:50 PM
Except Will Arnett's debut wasn't a film...

Neither was Silverman's....

Or Scott's....

"As Good As It Gets" was non-comedic? I remember laughing quite often...

Outstanding headline fail, Subby.

I find sites with auto refresh terribly confusing. I assume I must have broekn Chrome with some stupid extension, because why the hell would anyone auto-refresh a page right in the middle of my reading it?

Sarah Silverman doesn't really do it for me...I'm more of a redhead guy.  That being said...she seems like one of those chicks where you don't get to screw her....she.  Screws.  YOU.  I can totally picture her being a monster in the sack.

DESLIDED, no thanks to subby.  Seriously, this has been going on for years.  You'd think that FARK would let people know that slideshows suck ass and that http://deslide.clusterfake.net/  helps alleviate that suckdom.  It doesn't work for all of them, but it's better than nothing.

I'm no fan of slide shows either, especially on my laptop where it's click-scroll-scroll-scrool, click-scroll-scroll-scrool, click-scroll-scroll-scrool...

But Fark, which derives a boatload of revenue from advertising priced on its click count isn't likely to devote itself to undermining the same mechanism on other sites.

See to me she always seemed like the type where she puts this false persona that makes you think she'd be a monster in bed but when it got right down to it she'd actually be more frigid than a flag pole in winter.

The loudmouthed girlfriend in the beginning standing in line at a club with her boyfriend. Pushed her boyfriend into a confrontation, and she got punched out for talking so much.

I get what you're saying about Fark not being a jerk to other sites by not depriving them of getting any revenue, but I always see the same pattern:

1 - Someone submits a slideshow.
2 - People complain in the comments.
3 - Someone else puts up a deslided version.
4 - People get some sort of relief.

And the cycle continues.  For years.  I just wish that slideshows would go away and that something less annoying would replace them.  For me on my pc right now, the webpage subby posted is showing the same slideshow twice.  The first is the actual slideshow.  The second is below that one, under the text that reads "Featured Slide Shows".  It's farking crazy.

Yup, uncredited cameo.

Sarah Silverman is funny. And hot. But she doesn't have to be so Jewish. And I don't mean that in a Mel Gibson way. But she doesn't have to answer the the phone *RING* "I'm a Jew girl! Hello?".

She has nice floppity boobs though. NSFW

Clint Eastwood loved Jim Carrey's impersonation of him, so he gave him a small part in the movie.

That is the truth. He's real good in a very early Miami Vice episode as a DEA agent that had been under cover too long and he was pretty convincing in the action sequences at the end. Plus, his update of Dragnet wasn't too bad, either.
One of two police shows from the early 2000s that I thought deserved longer runs-the other being Robbery Homicide Division.
The first thing I can recall seeing Ed O'Neal in was as Popeye Doyle in a made for TV sequel to The French Conection.

I guess I don't know enough about the actor who plays Thor beyond his playful, succulent lips and big strong hands that could tear a brassiere clear in two and his thick, muscular frame to be able to drill a chick against the wall without breaking a sweat to be able to formulate an opinion about what his actual personality would be.

Wait, what were we talking about?
