That is awesome.

Yep, that's a "fark you" to Bieber and his crew.

Fillion didn't make pwning Bieber cool, Bieber did that all on his own. Fillion gets points though for being an early observer of this phenomenon though.

I don't understand the headline. How is Fillion doing this not cool until Bloom does it?

T-Servo: I don't understand the headline. How is Fillion doing this not cool until Bloom does it?


This is more like Bloom is cool for having hopped onto the bandwagon, though I'd say he'd have been a lot cooler had he not gotten Beeb's sloppy seconds and/or been c-blocked by the little wanker WRT his ex.

Alan Tudyk
"Nathan [Fillion] and I were on a computer playing Halo, and Bieber comes in with his crew.  And they're like "Excuse me - to Nathan, 'you need to go!'  There's like 5 or 6 systems and 'Justin Bieber is here and he needs this room by himself.' And Nathan goes: 'Yeah yeah, that's not happening.'"

I just watched the video once, but:

Fan asks what Tudyk's favorite game is, he says Halo.  Levi remembers that he first met Tudyk at a Halo launch party and they try to narrow down which one.  Tudyk remembers at one, he and Fillion were in the VIP section playing Halo when Bieber and his entourage come in.  Bieber settles in one corner (there's 5-6 systems), but one of his people come over to Fillion and says "You'll have to leave.  Justin Bieber is here and needs this whole room."  Fillion looks up from Halo, says "Yeah, that's not happening" and goes back to playing.

After which point security was called, the room was cleared, and the Bieber posse took their rightful place as kings of the game room.

When did Orlando Bloom ever get a one-up on Mr. Justin Bieber?  Never.

Back in the late 90's, my sister worked at a restaurant in Santa Barbara. One afternoon, Tiger Woods came in with an entourage of hoochie mama's (obviously before he was married) and his rep asked that they'd shut the restaurant down for him and his party of a dozen or so women.

The manager laughed and said "We'll save them a booth".

I was in the audience for Alan Tudyk's talk where he told this story and also for Nathon Fillion's talk in which Fillion confirmed that it really happened.

I admit that I am not a huge consumer of modern pop music (classic country is my thing), but what the hell has this Beiber ever done? I have heard songs from Lady Gaga, Lorde, those robot guys, Robin Thicke, and even that Cyrus whacko. But, I can't think of one song from Bieber.

Yes, I could go search Youtube or something to find his music, but the fact I would have to do that is kind of my point. He is like Paris Hilton as far as I can tell. He is famous for being famous.

His initial claim to fame was that he was 'discovered' on YouTube and that he could play several
instruments and sing reasonably well.  At least, that's what his official bio says: I'd be more than willing to
believe it was made up by his manager, a guy named Scooter Braun, to cover up his prefab nature.

The only song I've ever really heard from his is "Baby Baby Baby", which makes anything from T-Pain
sound like a Beatles/George Martin collaboration.

THIS.  He is worth $130 Mil, too.  Tween girls are a pretty powerful economic force.

According to Bungie, while Fillion kicked Beibers ass in the game, one of their artists took it upon himself to creep over Beiber's shoulder until he got uncomfortable and left with his entourage of assholes.

The story is about a third of the way down the page, "We're in LA".

A few years ago I was doing a video for my company and wanted some background music to rag on our Canadian office. I knew Bieber was big, so I downloaded his hit song "Baby" from Itunes.

I'd never heard it on any radio station, ever. Still haven't.

So, I'm with you. Kudos to him for being a millionaire, mainstream nobody.

Ok, so it isn't just me. I really only hear pop music when my wife drives. But, she had the vehicle with all the kid entertainment, so it happens quite a bit. I have heard a lot of pretty crappy music and I wind up hearing about the artists involved. I should have heard something by this douche.

Fun fact: visit LA and listen to the radio. You will hear "songs" by "artists" you've never heard of before, except in the Entertainment tab or in the checkout aisle of your local grocery store.

LA really is its own little world.

I have nieces who were the prime age to be Bieber fans.  The kid is actually pretty talented, but unfortunately his neverending douchebaggery negates it.

It will be gone in a few short years, and the ensuing 'Behind the Music' will tell of his tragic tale.

The first time I saw a picture of the Beebs it was in a bar, with no sound of the tv.  I nudged my friend and said "that's a cute lesbian chick."  My friend said "that's a dude."  Awkward silence.
