Just got back from "Maleficent". Angelina Jolie absolutely killed it as the lead IMHO.

That's all I got. The movie and effects are beautiful also, but her performance is definitely what makes it go.

Hilarious summation of Rick Perry seen on another website:

Rick Perry made a wish with a bad genie. Now he's invincible in Texas, but a joke everywhere else.

Milton Wolf, GOP candidate for U.S. Senate, interviewed re: posting patient X-rays online.

http://cjonline.com/news/state/2014-02-22/doctors-x-ray-postings-unsettling

Video is embedded at the link.

Wolf comes across as a total douche and tries to play it off like he was doing something educational instead of just being a mocking POS (which is rather obvious). Totally dishonest and makes no effort to owning up to a mistake and being a disrespectful dipshit.

But don't let me prejudice you, watch the video yourself!

Rest in Peace, Philip Seymour Hoffman.

One of the most prolific and consistently excellent actors of recent times. I really enjoyed his supporting role in "The Ides of March" and thought he was funny as hell as the lackey in "The Big Lebowski".

Everyone should watch "The Act of Killing", now on Netflix Streaming.

http://movies.netflix.com/WiMovie/The_Act_of_Killing/70271652?trkid=13641907

It's about as unlikely a film as you'll ever see, an "bearing witness" to atrocities, but the ones bearing witness are the perpetrators, who have never seen any justice and in fact are a type of hero/celebrity in their society (Indonesia) because they are the victors in the coup/civil war.

It kind of defies description but is probably unlike anything you've ever seen.

I'm partial to the Navy one but they're both pretty awesome.

Are there ANY news stories about people getting insurance (Medicaid or exchange) for the first time?

Because of the ACA?

Because I sure haven't seen any.

Why is this not considered notable in any way, or is it too "dog bites man"? I mean it seems like this should merit at least 5% of the media space but it seems more like zero.

Confederate Flag Guy will wind up being GOP poster boy for the 2013 Shutdown in the history books.



And it couldn't be more appropriate.
