So how do you feel about the handling of the non-release of The Interview?
Part of me is disappointed that an act of terrorism basically shut down a Hollywood movie, another part of me is glad Sony made the decisions they did… no one is getting hurt this way, the other part of me thinks the North Koreans (or whoever really did this) did everyone a favor because let’s be honest… that movie is probably terrible.
Update since I wrote this: I guess Hollywood changed its mind. Hooray…
I think it’s ridiculous that we caved into those threats and i find it more ridiculous that people want to go see what looks to be a mediocre movie because of some bandwagon sense of “patriotism”.
I don’t think we should have fully gave in. It’s a sticky situation but if Jack Bauer taught me anything, we can always find a way to foil terrorist plans.
I think it’s ridiculous. If anything, Sony should’ve started producing promotional toilet seats and dartboards with Kim Jong Un’s face on them. Perfect stocking stuffers!
What gifts do you think you deserve this year?
Clothes. Mostly because I picked them all out myself.
I deserve new convention shoes because I’ve been working hard covering cons as press and shredded the last pair completely. The soles have peeled all the way back from the shoe.
I don’t think I really deserve any gifts this year. Not because I was naughty this year, and I was really naughty, but because I pretty much bought everything I wanted. I don’t have patience to wait for Xmas!
I’m typically thankful for whatever I get, but some peace and quiet would be welcome.
When did you find out Santa Claus wasn’t real?
I was 3 or 4. I was with my mom donating toys to Toys for Tots and I asked my mom why we have to give people toys if that was Santa’s job. She told me the awful truth right then and there.
Don’t remember exactly. I think it had something to do with the fact that Santa and my dad wore the same boots.
I can’t remember a time when I though Santa was real nor do I remember when I was told he wasn’t. I do remember my parents trying to keep the magic alive and referring to him like he was real but I just would deny his existence… I clearly was a child full of wonder
I figured it out on my own. It just occurred to me one day that it was extremely unlikely that a man was capable of flying around the world in a night. Or that a fairy really collected old teeth. Or that a giant bunny left baskets in your backyard. I felt naive and a little betrayed by my parents.
What is your go to Christmas cocktail?
Vodka. Mixed with something red.
bourbon and ice
I had a hot chocolate with horchata last week that was fantastic… So I’ll go with that.
Baileys on the rocks. Cheers!
