Bela Lugosi as Jesus will blow your mind (and other adventures in social networking)

What my followers on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ saw today:
• This. Golden Globes 2013: Going Home With Jodie Foster

[This was posted at the Facebook page of the Alliance of Women Film Journalists.]

• Excellent question. Except we already know the answer: “journalists” who carry water for the US government are exempt from prosecution. Why are Bob Woodward’s WH sources – or Woodward himself – not on trial next to Bradley Manning?

• They mostly come at night. Mostly MT @JimJarmuschHair: How awesome would LES MIS be if tigers LITERALLY came at night and ate Anne Hathaway?

• Okay, but… How in the hell did The Atlantic possibly imagine that this was okay in the first place? How in the *hell*? ‘The Atlantic’ Pulls Scientology ‘Sponsor Content’ After Online Uproar

• I can’t believe I never knew — and never even thought about the fact that I never knew — what HMV stands for. So obvious now!

• Ah, so there are still journalists with integrity… CNET Reporter Resigns, Questioning CBS’ Commitment to ‘Editorial Independence’

• Oh, wow… Jesus Christ Lugosi Star: Images Of Bela Lugosi As Son Of God

Bela Lugosi as Jesus

  • “Suffer the children — of the night — to come unto me…”

    Lazarus raised from the dead? Check his neck for puncture wounds…

    So when he says we should drink of his blood and receive everlasting life it makes so much sense now…

    Dummy Roman soldier! The stake doesn’t go into the side

  •  I’m presuming that you are here all week, and we are encouraged to try the veal?

  • Ooh, ooh! Last one:

    No wonder he looks unhappy and in pain — he’s touching a HUGE CROSS!

    Thank ya. Thankyaverymuch.

  • PJK

    I guess we are seeing the death throws of Scientology now, luckily most people seem to have figured out what a dangerous cult this is.

  • Bob

    As a character in a Clive Barker story once pointed out, ”What would a resurrection be, without a few laughs?”

  • RogerBW

    If the journalists (or politicians) with ethics all resign, what are you left with?

    Scientology gives lots of money and training courses to the City of London Police. Apparently this is legal; I can’t imagine why it should be.

  • Saw the City of London Police on Ripper Street a couple of days ago. Bad eggs, the lot of ’em!

  • LaSargenta

    Bob Woodward is coated in teflon.

    Edited to add: And, after I posted this, I went to read that article. It crashed my browser. So, he’s coated in teflon(tm) and TPTB don’t want me to read furrin analysis of said teflon-ness.

    But seriously, folks…

    You would be surprised how much stuff you would find if you goggled the terms “vampire Jesus” and “vampire Christ.”

    I thought I was being pretty daring  a few years ago when I used the term “Vampire Christ” in a short story I had just written–but apparently quite a few writers–including Harry Turtledove of all people–had already written whole short stories and at least one novel on that theme. 

    Mea culpa. Mea maxima culpa.

  • Tonio Kruger

    Er, that’s Googled, not goggled.

    My bad.

  • Tonio Kruger

    I guess liberals don’t believe in tipping waiters. Or waitresses…

  • Tonio Kruger

    Next week MaryAnn’s mind is blown by the fact that an overfed, long-haired leaping gnome should be the star of a Hollywood movie…
