The Hacked Sony E-Mails Are A Distraction From The Larger Issues, And It’s Wrong To Use E-Mails Stolen From Anyone, Ever

I don’t take George Clooney that seriously, most of the time, but his interview with Deadline spoke to a lot of things I’ve been reflecting on about my job lately. In it, Clooney spoke about a petition of support he tried to circulate after Sony was attacked by what the FBI has now concluded were, in fact, North Korean hackers. The petition read:

“On November 24 of this year, Sony Pictures was notified that it was the victim of a cyber attack, the effects of which is the most chilling and devastating of any cyber attack in the history of our country. Personal information including Social Security numbers, email addresses, home addresses, phone numbers and the full texts of emails of tens of thousands of Sony employees was leaked online in an effort to scare and terrorize these workers. The hackers have made both demands and threats. The demand that Sony halt the release of its upcoming comedy The Interview, a satirical film about North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. Their threats vary from personal—you better behave wisely—to threatening physical harm—not only you but your family is in danger. North Korea has not claimed credit for the attack but has praised the act, calling it a righteous deed and promising merciless measures if the film is released. Meanwhile the hackers insist in their statement that what they’ve done so far is only a small part of our further plan. This is not just an attack on Sony. It involves every studio, every network, every business and every individual in this country. That is why we fully support Sony’s decision not to submit to these hackers’ demands. We know that to give in to these criminals now will open the door for any group that would threaten freedom of expression, privacy and personal liberty. We hope these hackers are brought to justice but until they are, we will not stand in fear. We will stand together.”

Happy Monday, Here’s A Gigantic Creepy Jennifer Lawrence Cake

Jennifer Lawrence

Lara Clarke, a talented self-taught British baker and “Hunger Games” fan, was honored with a gold prize at the Cake International competition for this life-size cake of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen. The cake matches J.Law’s measurements exactly, and Clarke brought along a backup cake just in case — a giant Tyrion Lannister from “Game of Thrones.” Last year, she won gold at the same contest for a crisped rice Jack Sparrow cake. The cake took 150 eggs, 22 pounds of butter, 132 pounds of icing and two months to come together. It also has staring vacant eyes, so there’s that.

Watch The New “Hunger Games: Mockingjay” Trailer And Just Ignore Me If You’re Super, Super Excited About It

Oooohhh, BUURRRRRNN

Woooo! The latest “Hunger Games” trailer is out! We’re so close to the release date! Also, are any other fans of the series just not that excited at this point?

When I read the books, I was rapt for the first book, interested for the second, and then I remember feeling, during the third, like Suzanne Collins was writing for an adaptation to screen, with somehow simultaneously dazzling and tedious descriptions of The Capitol’s physical setting, confusing and vague action sequences, and needless worrying over the Gale-Katniss-Peeta love triangle. Mockingjay, the third book in the trilogy,was written and released before Lionsgate picked up the rights to produce The Hunger Games books as films, but the series was so successful by the time she wrote the third book that I’m sure it had to at least be in the back of her mind. The book read like it, anyway — like if it was going to end up on screen anyway, there was room to fudge some of it, because it could be figured out visually later. Keep reading »
