the MPAA’s preciousness strikes again (and other adventures in social networking)

What my followers on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ saw today:
• He wanted to wear his Dictator costume on the red carpet. The Academy felt this would be a distraction from the solemnity of starlets talking about which designers made their gowns… SACHA BARON COHEN BANNED FROM OSCARS: EXCLUSIVE

• If Stephen Colbert can imagine it, you will buy it… Stephen Colbert’s children’s book to be released in May

• What a geek… Bulk of man’s remarkable childhood comic book collection fetches $3.5 million at auction

• The MPAA’s preciousness strikes again… MPAA gives Bully an R rating, protecting hypothetical innocent kids from exposure to actual kids

• Hard to disagree with this: “1997 was the start of the modern-day fanboy/geek culture that now runs Hollywood. Fanboy culture (Comic-Con, Harry Potter, Twilight, The Hunger Games, The Lord of the Rings, J.J. Abrams, Joss Whedon, Marvel comics, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Glee, Aint-It-Cool-News, Attack of the Show) is a groupthink mentality that claims to be democratic, what with its we-know-what’s-best-because-we’re-fans ethic, but is really pop culture fascism.” Aaron Aradillas on “The Phantom Menace” in 3D
