I picture David Futrelle capering gleefully right now: he has so much blog fodder falling out of the sky from the Aurini/Owen breakup. He’s posting some of the comments from misogynist fans, and a hilariously angry interview with Aurini. And now I’m all out of popcorn.
Unfortunately, I had a downer of a thought. This could be a ploy: look at all the attention those two are getting right now. I can’t believe it’s going to lead to more profit — would even someone sympathetic to their cause donate to those bumbling maroons now? — but they say their movie is almost done, and that what they’re going to do is release two versions of The Sarkeesian Effect. Two badly edited, pretentious, incompetent and boring feature length “movies” thrown onto the web, where after all this build-up many of us are going to feel obligated to watch them…or, at least, watch the first 5 dreary minutes before we give up.
I’m also thinking of The Producers. And maybe Uwe Boll’s tax finagling.
