even Variety thinks critics should be objective (and other adventures in social networking)

What my followers on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ saw today:
• Unfortunately, I’ve come to expect that negative reviews will garner accusations that critics are not objective enough. But I expect that from fanboys, not from Variety. (Also weird and kinda disturbing: The Variety writer thinks it’s “schizophrenic” for the NY Times to highlight a review that isn’t wholly positive; and that critics should somehow temper negative reviews of popular genres in order to avoid being abused by fanboys. Abuse by fanboys is apparently a-okay.) Why Samuel Jackson Had a Point Re: A.O. Scott

• Whatever happens in my life, I’m unlikely to marry a lady. But these are cool. I will marry a star wars lady and these will be our rings [image]
