Re: “The Life Cinematic

Figures a bunch of chumps who haven't developed a personality on their own, and therefore need to borrow some from Wes Anderson films would dislike my comment.

Seriously though. Why are there so many people who worship this guy? Why do so many people look and act and talk like his characters? It's like his movies are some kind of instruction manual on how to be a quirky nitwit.

I'd rather be surrounded by Portlanders aping Woody Allen characters than Wes Anderson characters any day. At least their quirkiness would be mildly interesting, then.

Re: “The Life Cinematic

Ugh. Just stop it with this guy already. He makes the same damn movie EVERY TIME he makes a movie.

And, too many annoying people in this town seemingly model both their insufferable personalities and atrocious style of dress after his characters.

You guys are gross.

Re: “A Hard Day's Night

Ah, I think you mixed up your description for this movie. A Hard Day's Night is about The Beatles, *not* the Monkees.

Shameful!

Re: “Facebook COO Apologizes for Experimenting on Users Poorly Communicating the Existence of User Experiments

Yeah, sorry guys but this is a total non-story. Marketers conduct tests all the time without your knowledge. Ever heard of A/B testing or Multivariate testing? Thousands of brands conduct it on their websites every single day, and dozens of web developments tools exist to streamline this kind of testing and provide analytics data from those tests.

Probably every single day you stumble, largely unknowingly, though a website's A/B test. Shop on Amazon? They're constantly A/B testing their product and category pages. Use eBay? Zappos? Any Gawker media site? 90% of the internet? Same thing. They're all testing. And you know what? You're not SUPPOSED to know they're doing it, because it would make the testing utterly useless if you did.

So, you can all just calm down about this Facebook thing. This is nothing new. You've all been guinea pigs for years to internet marketers - partly for "nefarious" reasons like increasing profits, but also partly to simply improve overall user experience on the internet. And really, speaking as someone who knows, testing is a big component of how the user experience on the internet evolves.

Either way, it doesn't matter what Facebook's motive was, and whether you like it or not. Obviously, they've done some pretty stupid shit, and have a number of terrible policies concerning privacy and other things (and personally, I can't stand Facebook). But testing on their website to see what kind of content people like/don't like?

Truly not something to get all bent out of shape over.

Re: “Urging a Site to Take Down Video of a Horrific Car Crash Isn't "Censorship," Gawker

Paul - I completely agree, but sites like Gawker (really *all* of the Gawker Media sites, including the beloved Jezebel) are notorious for their shitty reporting, click-bait headlines, moral double-standards, and exploiting tragedy for internet traffic. So I guess your complaint doesn't come as much of a surprise to me.

Look, I work in digital marketing. I work closely with people who buy and sell all sorts of ads, and with websites that make money from ads. Every single time any of us visits a Gawker Media website we're giving them ad revenue. And they know we'll click on their juicy links from our Facebook feeds because they specifically write them to be provocative.

If you're not interesting in an all-out boycott of websites like Gawker, and you just absolutely *have* to read their terrible stories, may I kindly suggest running Adblock Plus or something similar, so you're at least not making them any money?

Re: “B-Grade Pot Growers Beware

Actually, I kinda wish I could find me some B-grade, or hell even C-grade pot in Portland. All this super potent stuff makes me anxious and practically hyperventilate. I mean, come on, who really needs to get SUPER high every time you smoke? Can't I just get a *little* high? Ugh.

Re: “Logo of Death

Come on guys, this is about the SCENE! This is a TRAVESTY! Don't let these POSEURS move our beloved festival to the waterfront, where NORMAL PEOPLE might see the bands we've lovingly admired for their OBSCURITY more so than for their talent!
