we do not want to cross Helen Mirren (and other adventures in social networking)

What my followers on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ saw today:
Magic Mike is a workplace bromance — the workplace just happens to be a male strip club. This is a movie about men, written and directed by men and told from a male perspective. Women barely appear in this film. In all these respects, it is entirely like almost every other movie Hollywood produces. In what way is the male audience not being served by this movie? Five reasons why straight dudes will like ‘Magic Mike’

• We don’t want to cross Helen Mirren, do we? Helen Mirren calls for more female film-makers [This was posted to the Facebook page of the Alliance of Women Film Journalists, which you should Like if you want to see links like this one in your timeline.]

• The Internet: designed to survive a nuclear war. Today’s corporate-run Net realms: unable to survive a rainy day. Survey Of Effects Of Cloud Outage Shows How Much Of The Web Runs On Amazon

• Wah wah! Ladies are reading naughty books on the trains, and it’s making men reading over their shoulders uncomfortable! (Perhaps the guys could distract themselves by looking at the larger-than-life-size lingerie ads.) Believe me, chaps, Fifty Shades of Grey will leave you crimson

• Dany got her dragons back, but now she’s got another problem, and she needs your help. Help Daenerys Targaryen buy a ship, sail to Westeros, and reclaim the Iron Throne
