"We're all one thing, Lieutenant. That's what I've come to realize. Like cells in a body. 'Cept we can't see the body. The way fish can't see the ocean. And so we envy each other. Hurt each other. Hate each other. How silly is that? A heart cell hating a lung cell." - Cassie from THE THREE

I didn’t realize that the PG-13 version of The King’s Speech did so poorly (hasn’t even cracked $3 mil!).

How utterly stupid! Just the fact that the thing was rated R to begin with is borderline absurd. And then some post-release censorship against the director’s wishes? Just to make more money? After most people had agreed it was pretty overrated to begin with? 

Well done, Hollywood!


It’s taken a while, but Google has finally caved in to pressure from the entertainment industries including the MPAA and RIAA. The search engine now actively censors terms including BitTorrent, torrent, utorrent, RapidShare and Megaupload from its instant and autocomplete services. The reactions from affected companies and services are not mild, with BitTorrent Inc., RapidShare and Vodo all speaking out against this act of commercial censorship.
