FTFA: [quote from Clooney:] "If you're famous, I don't--for the life of me--I don't understand why any famous person would ever be on Twitter. Why on God's green earth would you be on Twitter?"

My respect for this man has just tripled.

And I now forgive him for Batman and Robin.

Twitter is like reading a bottomless pile of fortune cookie fortunes, but in a deranged, reversed narrative order.

Right, that's why caught sayof it here instead, in faux anonymity of username.  What's his handle?

I always thought he was a pompous ass until he said this.
"I think it's funny, but the last thing you'll ever see me do is jump up and down, saying, 'These are lies!' That would be unfair and unkind to my good friends in the gay community.  I'm not going to let anyone make it seem like being gay is a bad thing. My private life is private, and I'm very happy in it. Who does it hurt if someone thinks I'm gay? I'll be long dead and there will still be people who say I was gay. I don't give a s**t."

Now I want to be like him.

Batman and Robin wasn't his fault. It was the script and the direction.

That's how I'd feel about it if I was famous--I think, having never been anywhere near famous. Somebody is always going to say something. And yeah, if you vehemently deny it, doesn't that make you sound like you think there's something wrong with being gay?

He must pay his girlfriends off, or make them sign contracts or something. I've never heard a word about him from any of them, and when he dumps them, he just sends them a text message. Some of them couldn't have been too happy when they left.

Or maybe he's up front with them at the start about the fact he's not looking to settle down.  Look at it from the other side, if a smoking hot actress asked you out then told you the two of you would spend the next year or two traveling the world, seeing exotic places, meeting famous people and having mind blowing sex before parting ways amicably, would you say no?

The fact that he's been so consistent about saying stuff like that is why I'm fairly certain he's not gay.  That, and the fact that he's made jokes about putting the moves on Brad Pitt.

No one knew Joel Schumacher was going to go completely off the rails, and once the costumes with the nipples showed up, it was too late to back out.

For 1997 it was par. Starship Troopers, Con Air, Spawn, Volcano, Face Off, Speed 2. How many of those are you willing to buy the Blu-Ray versions of?

I should watch Face/Off again.  It's up on Netflix, and I now wonder if it's as good as I remember.

I've tried that though, but Natalie just would not break it off. Finally I had to pay Kevin Feige to put her in the 2nd Thor movie.

Face/Off will forever be known to me as the flick we went to see after an ill-fated Tyson-Holyfield 2 watch party. We caught the late show to salvage the evening and as a way to try to forget that Don King swindled us for fifty bucks.

Arab Spring is an excellent example of how Twitter is a unique resource for disseminating real-time information.  Um, and then there's that other time when that thing happened and someone tweeted it and someone else retweeted it and stuff.

Bslim: I've yet to see any reason for the twattery that is twitter.


It's pretty kickass for keeping up with rapidly developing and chaotic situations.  Twitter is great if:

1. You listen MUCH MUCH more than you talk

2. You "follow" the right people.  It's difficult to overstate how different the experience is if you follow, for instance, Phil Plait, Robert Costa and Andrew Kaczynski vs, say, Justin Bieber, Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton.  No matter what your interests are, you can probably find a good list of people to follow such that it will never be obnoxious and stupid.  On the other hand, it is REALLY REALLY easy to follow people such that it is obnoxious and stupid.  My best advice would be to not follow your friends and family.  They aren't going to say anything on there that you want to hear, and if they do say something, the format will just piss you off.

This. C'mon, lots of stars pass on such roles claiming they don't "understand" them. This was a (in theory) critic proof big paycheck. I mean, I'm up in the air as to how he could turn down such a role. Anybody criticising him with intolerable cruelty should be give the facts of life or sent to the ER. Batman and Robin was just the perfect storm once we saw the body of evidence. He chose the Batman role one fine day before he was an unbecoming age. I want to be the peacemaker and say that he was awesome in Ocean's Eleven. He was out of sight in that film. To the tools in the article asking him, oh brother where art thou? I say good night and good luck, and the article was definitely to burn after reading. It's clear he doesn't care what his descendants think, and for good reason, he has a lot of gravity.

You obviously don't read enough gossip. He DUMPS them.

And besides, what human being is rational enough to actually live with that deal? Ok, what woman? He dates women who are famous or close to it--being with him is nothing but a plus for them. And then they always fall for him too, because I think he treats his girlfriends pretty well, and they start thinking that maybe this time.....and it never happens.

Why, I could almost send him a poison tweet just thinking about it.

I pretty much use it just for sports stuff. You follow the right people and it can be a good source of information. Like good in-game stats, info nuggets and injury reports.

Other than that it's just a bunch of inane stupidity: especially from celebrities.

Charge freelance journalists a subscription fee, and establish a royalty model for then to be reimbursed when a major outlet runs with their tweets. Add accuracy / debunk capability so that journalists can establish credibility.

Segregate users. Put users like KK, Aston K, Kanye into an "attention whore" bucket, and limit the tweets of anyone who follows anyone in that AW bucket to zero.

Then it will work itself out.
