It might be worth mentioning them or reaching out to them during Friday’s tweetstorm organized by @pitchstreetteam. Let me know of any I missed and I’ll add them–these are all people who have tweeted positively about the show, and many (most) tweeted disappointment at it’s cancellation. Maybe they’ll help #PickUpPitch!

I’m trying to get back into this writing thing if any of you have ever read the book audrey wait (aka one of my fave books ever) its kinda based off that :)

Dodging an ex after the breakup was always hard. It was even harder when your ex-boyfriend was in a world famous band. At first you’d avoided listening to the radio so there would be zero chance of you hearing any of his songs and you’d dodged grocery store checkout lines so you wouldn’t see his picture on the magazine covers. But as they say time heals all wounds and about six months after the relationship ended, you didn’t even flinch when you were in the grocery store and the radio announcer’s voice came over the speakers, “And here’s the brand new song from 5 Seconds of Summer!” A few months ago you would have left your cart in the middle of the aisle and walked out just to avoid hearing the song, but things were better now so you remained right where you were, in the freezer section surveying the ice cream choices. You were trying to decide whether or not to splurge on the name brand or buy the store’s knock off when you heard the chorus of the song come over the speakers and you finally started paying attention.

  • Baby: M..M-Ma..

  • Baby: Marilyn Manson was born Brian Hugh Warner on January 5, 1969 in Canton, Ohio, to Barbara Jo (Wyer) and Hugh Angus Warner. He has German and English ancestry. During his childhood, one of his neighbors molested him several times until the young Brian broke down one day and told his mother what happened. As an only child, he would often get into mischievous activities such as adventure through his grandfather Jack Warner's sex toys, shoot his BB gun with his cousin Chad, and create sex magazines to sell to his classmates. His parents raised him as an Episcopalian, and he attended the religious private Heritage Christian School. It was there that he became fueled with hate towards Christanity. During his tenth grade year, he convinced his parents to let him attend a public school.After he graduated from high school, he and his parents moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida because his father got a better job there. He studied journalism and theater at the local community college called Broward, and being some place new and feeling lonely, he wrote poems and short stories. After being fired from his last job at a record store, he became entertainment journalist for a local magazine. He interviewed several famous musicians including Trent Reznor from the band "Nine Inch Nails". Along with his job and writing, he would also frequently go to rock clubs. He soon decided to create his own band. With musical influences from Ozzy Osbourne and KISS, he recruited other musicians with the same interests and started the band called "Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids". He got the name Marilyn Manson as a combination from the names of the movie star Marilyn Monroe and the psycho killer Charles Manson. The band's name would later officially change to just Mariyn Manson, and most of the original band members would leave and be replaced, too. Manson reunited with Trent Reznor and had his band tour with "Nine Inch Nails". Reznor would also produce Marilyn Manson's first three albums (Portriat of an American Family, AntiChrist Superstar, and Mechanical Animals) and an E.P. (Smells like Children). "Mechanical Animals" is Marilyn Manson's most successful album to date. With the success, Manson became a controversial celebrity, because the anti-Christian message in his songs, and Satanist 'Anton Szandor LaVey' deemed Manson a Reverend for the Church of Satan. Also with fame, Manson started to mingle with other celebrities, and began a romantic relationship with the actress Rose McGowan. They became engaged, but broke off the relationship in 2001.He then fell in love with the burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese, and soon became engaged. They had a fairytale, non-denominational wedding in a castle in Ireland. Meanwhile, Manson came out with two more albums (Holy Wood, and the Golden Age of Grotesque), and a best of album (Lest We Forget: The Best Of...). He also dabbled into acting by being in such movies as Jawbreaker (1999), Party Monster (1998) and The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things (2004). He continues to make music and act in movies.

Arrow 5x14 “The Sin-Eater”: Everyone Makes a Choice

Note: This review was ready to go Thursday; all I had to do was type it up and format it after work. But after asking, I decided to vote Thursday afternoon—since I couldn’t do both. Then the poll reopened on Friday and there went my plans to type this up again. Unfortunately we still lost. Good job to all those who voted. That’s why this isn’t as timely as my last few have been, even if it’s been written out since Thursday morning. Oops. Oh well. Sometimes a fangirl has vote, you know? ;)  


Arrow is testing my patience. I am convinced that I am being tried so that I can enjoy all the wonderful spoils of heaven. Maybe a position of sainthood up there. I didn’t really think they’d have such a bad episode after last week’s really awful episode. I apparently need to adjust my expectations down, again.  

What’s incredibly frustrating about this is that this didn’t have to be a bad episode. We had a Thea and Felicity team up (the only good thing about this episode); we had the possibility of a good storyline with three female villains; and very importantly, this episode focused on the core of Arrow and didn’t belabor us with a ton of Recruit scenes. They existed in the periphery—where they belong. Though they could maybe hug the edges a lot closer. I’m just sayin’.

All of that sounds like a mixture for success, yes? But then let me remind you what we all forgot when we read the episode recipe: It was left in the hands of Arrow writers to cook up and s5 has been one disastrous course after another.

The problem is that the villainesses’ storyline was under baked (okay, enough of the cooking metaphor) and just really sloppy. The villainesses ran around Star City killing various people and it was all to get the money Church had hidden. That they needed to be shown where it was. So question: Why didn’t the remaining criminals just go and take the money instead of letting it collect dust in a mausoleum? Something about that felt like a plot hole. In general, their stunts felt sloppy. It was just a real miss for a villain of the week storyline.

Except that Arrow had another villain in the works this week and boy did she get her comeuppance. And the story surrounding her was the biggest disaster of all this week.

THE SUSAN WILLIAMS DEBACLE

I hate this character. Take away that she is a useless love interest for Oliver in an attempt to keep Olicity apart for a little longer: She is still simply awful. I haven’t liked her from the beginning and nothing at all about Carly Pope’s portrayal makes it any better. To call her one-note is frankly kind; everything about her performance is irritating. I have had the (dis)pleasure of viewing her elsewhere. Let’s just say she is not a versatile actress at all. All her characters feel the same except for a possible wardrobe change and name change.

That said, my absolute favorite part of this episode was Susan Williams being taken down by my two faves Felicity and Thea.

Originally posted by gurl

 I felt zero amount of sympathy for her. I felt all the amounts of glee and maybe wiggled in my chair with delight. Now I know that after the episode aired this storyline made some male pseudo-journalists all butthurt. I would kindly ask them to STFU and go away with their pseudo-feminism and pseudo-journalistic ethics.

That peurile excuse for an “entertainment journalist” called Leanne Aguilera just agreed with a homophobe that questions for Lana from queer fans are trash; and claimed that Lana told her to ignore them.

The silly fool straight up tried to pit Lana Parrilla against her queer following, just to make herself look good on Twitter.

Arrow Season 5 finale and overall season thoughts

I have not enjoyed this season or the finale, sure there were some moments that I liked but overall this entire season was forgettable. Since I’ve got a few minutes free this morning I thought I’d list some thoughts.

To start I guess I feel like I might have missed something because the entertainment journalists and most people on my twitter and tumblr time lines were really enjoying last night. And I, well I’m left feeling empty, unsatisfied, and underwhelmed.

I guess Oliver and Felicity are back together. So 5x20 was there to wrap up their break-up and move them forward. And that one little line from Felicity during the birthday party showed they are back together. But I guess even though earlier this year I thought the little bits I figured the show would throw to us would be enough for me, it wasn’t, AT ALL. I can’t even articulate what I’m not satisfied with I just feel unhappy with how that whole storyline wrapped up. But like with so many things on this show I’ll make my peace with it and move on. But I guess at least we got a season finale kiss in the suit in good lighting, so that’s something.

There were too many people in this episode so no one really did anything. All this OTA being front and center and important was such bullshit. Seriously Felicity was there to have a crammed in “meaningful” convo with Thea and Samantha and ????? She announced that the whole island was rigged to blow for the audience but did nothing else. Diggle, oh my god. He did nothing, he was just there. If he had a meaningful purpose it was such a quick scene that I forgot it already.

I was really irritated with the whole Oliver telling Thea that she and Curtis (of all people) and Malcolm (who has betrayed them all so many times) needed to protect and get Felicity and Samantha to safety. That made me so mad, like lets reduce Oliver’s love and baby mama to damsels that need protecting well f&ck that.

That Nyssa and Talia fight was anti-climatic and over too fast. I was expecting a lot more out of Talia since they introduced her this season. Now that was a sister conflict storyline that had potential but as usual with Arrow, they introduced way more story than they could adequately tell.

Slade….sigh. I don’t like Slade, I’ve never liked Slade. Slade killed Moira in front of Oliver and Thea. I don’t give a single shit that the miracuru is out of his system and he is no longer mentally unstable and under the influence of drugs. HE KILLED OLIVER AND THEA’S MOTHER IN FRONT OF THEM. HE STABBED HER THROUGH THE HEART WITH A SWORD! UGH! I also see how the show just slid Slade in to give the words of wisdom to Oliver about survivors guilt and forgiving himself that in any other episode would have been Diggle’s to give. Just another way to sideline Diggle so we can get a comic book character moment.

Rene and Curtis did nothing, couple line of exposition and that’s it. Lance was there to call Dinah Bl@ck C@nary. Dinah was there to have a scream fight with Bl@ck Siren. I get it story-wise, everyone Oliver cares for needed to be on that island so Chase could continue to taunt Oliver with everyone you love will always suffer because of you, blah, blah, blah. And for that “emotional” cliffhanger of they are all dead when the island explodes.

Why was Digger Harkness in this episode? Evelyn was so pointless. I don’t get why Bl@ck Siren was there at all. Sure help Chase out as a thank you by capturing everyone in Star City, but why continue on to Lian Yu?

Malcolm, sigh, I guess I’m glad he’s finally dead, but what a way to go. So let me get this straight, he sacrificed himself for Thea. The same Thea he drugged and had her kill Sara so Ra’s wouldn’t go after him and led to Thea being stabbed and almost dying. Then he wouldn’t give up the league to get the cure for the bloodlust. But that death was off screen, so while I think he might actually be dead for real, I also would not be surprised if he were to pop back up alive in season 8 or 9 if Arrow goes that long.

Now the kid, William. Look I’m a mother, I have 2 kids who are 10 and 8. I’m also the child of divorced parents whose dad popped in and out her life throughout her childhood. This whole finale revolved around Oliver trying to find and save his son. Intellectually I get it, but emotionally I was not connected to this story at all. Look I know Oliver supposedly bonded with the kid in season 4 when he was leaving his paralyzed fiance to visit his son, who didn’t know he was his son. But dammit, if the writers knew that they were going to base the entire finale on fathers and sons (hell the whole season really) then it would have been way more emotionally satisfying for me if I had seen Oliver and William interacting and bonding this season. I’m also mildly irked that we never got to see William’s reaction to finding out that Oliver (his mom’s friend who visited with him a few times last year) is his father and his father is the Green Arrow. Sighing again. Once again this whole child story is just used for plot and has no emotional resonance.

Overall season thoughts.

It’s utterly forgettable. There are maybe 2 episodes I would rewatch entirely and maybe 3 or so more I’d watch parts of.

Sometimes I wonder why I’m still watching this show. I haven’t really enjoyed it since season 4a. I guess because every time I think I’m done the writers manage a moment of brilliance and I’m sucked back in.

Billy had no purpose to Felicity’s story. He was there for Oliver’s manpain not for Felicity.

Susan, I’m sighing again. That storyline went no where and was just unceremoniously dropped.

I know some people are happy with Felicity’s arc this season. But it was too little for me. She was sidelined too much this season. While I know she got a lot of screen time a lot of it was about other people’s emotional journeys, technical expertise, and exposition. I’ve given up thinking that she will ever get an in-depth story. I can hope for Smoak Tech next season but I’m not holding my breath.

Oliver, is this no killing thing going to actually stick for real this time? Because I thought it had previously, he spared Slade, but then he killed Ra’s and Damien and was back to killing again at the beginning of this season. I just feel like we constantly retread the same stories over and over with Oliver and I’m just tired of it. Find something new writers. But I don’t think they are capable of finding new emotional arcs for Oliver because once again it sounds like season 6 is a retread of a story already told. But I know it’s early and something had to be announced at upfronts.

I was not really satisfied with the wrap up of the flashbacks. I figured Kovar would have fought with and delayed Oliver just enough to have him miss the boat and he’d be stuck on the island for a couple of months. They really screwed up cutting flashback Oliver’s hair in season 4. If he’d never cut his hair over 5 years and missed the boat Anatoli sent for him that would explain the hair and beard. A wig and fake beard was so ridiculous. But whatever at least the flashbacks (my least favorite part of the show) are finally over.

Sighing once again. I just  re-read this post and I feel like I’ve done nothing but complain. But I wasn’t satisfied with this episode or this season and I needed a way to get my feelings out. So thanks anyone who made it all the way through this post. I’ll probably still follow along with summer hiatus speculations and be back in the fall. But nothing in the finale made me excited to watch next season.

I’m rarely invested in more than 1-3 shows at a time and Arrow has been the only show I watch consistently for the the past 2 years. So I really hope something comes out over the summer or at SDCC to make me want to return, otherwise I might be searching for a new show to watch.

Listen Up Girl Meets World Fans!

Okay, GMW Fandom we need to have a chat. I haven’t been active over the last few months because I have a lot going on personally and professionally. However; that doesn’t mean I don’t care about GMW anymore. I’ve been quietly active in my own way for months.

I’ve called, emailed, and live chatted with Netflix, Hulu and Amazon about picking up the show. I made my planes4GMW paper airplanes for all four networks (the ones above and Disney). I reached out to my old boss at Disney (the VP of Disney’s in house creative agency) to see if he has any insight. He’s been kind of enough to answer my questions. What I’m saying is that I’m keeping my finger on the pulse of what is happening with GMW. I was doing it before the show was officially canceled and now I’m doing it to keep up with the effort to get the show picked up elsewhere.

When I saw everyone attacking Linda Ge, a prominent entertainment journalist, for her article yesterday I was disappointed, to say the least. I understand that Netflix was the first choice of venue for a lot of people but that’s not a reason to ignore what she is saying or to deride her abilities or integrity as a journalist.

As someone who worked in PR and Marketing for several years, I can assure you that there are numerous, numerous occasions on which someone in a corporation will anonymously give information to a journalist that they want the public to know without giving a quote or providing official confirmation from their company. That is how journalism works. Please, go read a newspaper; at least half of the articles will say “sources close to” or “sources deep inside the organization” “certain high ranking officials” etc. Journalism depends on the ability of a source to give information without revealing their identity. They may lose their job if their identity is revealed. A million things could happen. Sometimes it’s as simple as a corporation telling someone to approach a journalist but to retain anonymity because they want a piece of info out but they don’t want to publicly announce something. If I had to guess I would say this last possibility is exactly what happened with Netflix and Linda Ge.

As someone that now works as an editor for an online magazine, I can tell you that the process for getting an article published, especially by a legitimate source such as Yahoo, is incredibly rigorous. You need to confirm a story with at least three reliable sources. We don’t publish the additional sources or give readers their names, but you better believe both the journalist and the editor verified any story, especially one that breaks any type of news, with three sources.

There is no way Linda Ge wrote a story and got it published with false information.

Let me say this again: there is no way a reputable site like Yahoo would have published a story without verifying the veracity of the story first.

As for the people that contacted customer service at Netflix and were told it’s still possible; I think it’s wonderful that you’re attempting to be diligent. However, customer service is the lowest man on the totem pole of Netflix. Even when I worked for Guest Relations at Disney back in the day, there were many many times I knew information before it was officially announced to the public and if people asked me about it I was required to say no decision has been made, even if I knew a decision had been made and I knew what that decision was. My point is that 1) it’s likely that no one has told customer service what’s happening 2) it’s likely that even if customer service does know they are only allowed to say that no decision has been made and nothing is confirmed because that’s what corporate wants them to say.

Now, why would corporate want customer service to say nothing is confirmed? Most likely they aren’t planning on making an official announcement about not picking the show up. Networks and streaming platforms make announcements when shows are canceled but networks rarely, if ever make actual official announcements when they aren’t picking a show up. I can think of one example of a network/streaming platform that made an announcement about not picking up a canceled show. It very very rarely happens. If a network isn’t planning on announcing anything they aren’t going to have any of their representatives say anything because that defeats the purpose of not making an announcement.

To sum up: Linda Ge is Netflix’s announcement. They sent someone to her with the story, she was able to verify the story with other sources within Netflix (again the story wouldn’t be published if she couldn’t verify it with at least three sources). It was a back door way of letting us know what is happening and where we should be concentrating our efforts.

Look, I know Netflix got thousands of requests to pick up Girl Meets World. In the real world, that isn’t enough. Disney and Netflix have a very tense relationship as it is. They’ve had a tense relationship for a few years now. I have my Disney sources that say Disney Channel PR is freaking out and pushing for them to 1) either backtrack and renew GMW for a fourth season (I know for a fact that they’ve gotten a lot of complaints and parents saying they’re going to cancel their subscription to Disney/disney on demand or change their cable package to a less expensive one that doesn’t include Disney because they were only keeping it for GMW) or 2) sell the rights to any interested party. I know that my old boss was brought in for a few sessions related to GMW’s future over the past two weeks.

Things are not as bad as they seem. Netflix is 99.9% a no go. We need to be concentrating on platforms where we actually have a chance. This means Hulu, Amazon and I know people won’t like this but it also means Disney Channel. The rights are an issue regardless of where the show goes. Even though Hulu is owned by Disney, Disney Channel would have to sell the rights to Hulu because of the way Disney, as a company is structured. Lines of Business and separate entities under the Disney umbrella do not share money. What one entity earns or owns is not transferable to another Disney entity without a contract and financial exchange (the same way one would be required if it was going to a non Disney entity). What I’m saying is that the rights matter for Hulu as much as they do for Amazon. Even if you don’t want to target Disney Channel for renewing GMW (which is a possibility) you still need to target them for selling the rights to Hulu or Amazon.

I get that Netflix was the preferred platform for a lot of people. If I could pick anywhere for GMW to live I would pick Netflix. But we’ve been given a gift. Someone at Netflix (along with Linda Ge who has been a big fan of Girl Meets World for a long time and gave us the wonderful Jacobs interview last week and only wants to help our cause) decided that the best way for our campaign to succeed is for us to have as much information as possible so we can build and execute the best campaign possible. Netflix wanted this info out so we could make our Hulu and Amazon and Disney Channel efforts stronger and not waste time or resources on a platform that isn’t feasible.

You don’t have to believe Linda and you don’t have to believe me. This post pretty clearly spells out the way things work from the corporate side of giving journalists info anonymously as well as how the editorial and publication process works. It isn’t easy to get something published by a reputable source (which Yahoo News is, FYI). What I will ask is for all of you to stop attacking Linda. I ask all of you to stop thinking you know how the journalistic process works if you’ve never worked in journalism. I will ask you to stop pretending you understand how corporations and companies release information to journalists anonymously if they want a piece of information leaked.

If you still want to target Netflix that’s your choice. However, the wisest course of action is to target Hulu, Amazon and Disney Channel with everything you have. If you want to throw Netflix in there go for it. If you forego targeting Hulu, Amazon or Disney Channel in favor of targeting Netflix you are doing a disservice to saving the show we’ve all loved for three years. Putting the show ahead of your personal beliefs and desires to see the show on one particular platform is paramount.

Let’s continue to fight together to give this show the best possible chance of survival. The cast and crew deserve that from us, let’s not disappoint them.

Norman Lear schools Rashida Jones on hosting *dangerous* Peabody Awards

When the Peabody Awards air on PBS and FUSION television networks on Friday, June 2, it won’t be the first time the ceremony has been on television. But the joint broadcast partnership will provide a unique opportunity for the University of Georgia and Peabody to tap into both loyal viewers of public broadcasting as well as younger, more diverse audiences found on the burgeoning cable network.

“It was an amazing night and we’re looking forward to sharing it with people across the country,” said Jeffrey P. Jones, director of Peabody. “There’s no better time to bring the power of truth-telling in media to the conversation and this year’s winners are a reflection of that.”

As host Rashida Jones noted in her opening monologue, “There are nobodies, there are somebodies, and there are Peabodys,” a nod to the distinction the award carries for journalists, documentarians, entertainers and storytellers across broadcasting genres.

In addition to highlights from the inspiring and lively celebration, the television special will feature interviews with winners. Celebrity guests included Lupita Nyong’o, who honored her friend Ava DuVernay for the documentary “13th.” Louis C.K. accepted for his groundbreaking drama “Horace and Pete” as well as for “Better Things,” which he co-created with fellow comedian and actress Pamela Adlon. And former-comedian-turned-senator Al Franken was the perfect choice to present to Julia Louis-Dreyfus and her co-star Timothy Simons for the satirical political sitcom “VEEP.”

Catch all of the highlights, including interviews with this year’s winners, in a television special of the 76th Peabody Awards Ceremony to be broadcast on both PBS and the cable network FUSION on Friday, June 2 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

idk why anyone would want that as one of the singles anyway like, of course it's obvious to US that the song isn't who harry really is/it's just a persona, but to the gp?? people who still think he's a womanizer? hearing him sing about how unintelligent a girl is but he'll still pay to have sex with her and then accidentally gets her pregnant or w/e?? screaming about it on top 40 radio?? like the thought of having to explain that to my nonfandom friends is so yikes to me

i’m also very, very concerned about the possibility of the tabloids and the entertainment journalists turning it into a diss track about louis and babygate.

why would you even want to risk it? even taking the hard candy line out of it, the chances of kiwi dramatically misfiring and making things worse rather than better are SO HIGH.

   48. who is your role model? 

probably greg miller. he’s a guy who used to write games and his come-up story was pretty inspirational. he’s got that #perseverance that i try to implement into my stuff.

  27. do you have a job? what do you do? 

i’m a student studying journalism/film studies to become something along the lines of an entertainment journalist (reviewer, op-ed, news writer on tv shows, movies, or video games would be ideal), i freelance for a few sites but right now i’m mainly writing articles for Nintendo Life, also i’m a “game advisor” at a popular game store .
