What the hell is going on with this CBS/ABC incident over “The Glass House”? First of all, I have never watched Big Brother, so I have no idea what type of intellectual property could have been infringed. Isn’t every reality TV show essentially the same at this point? There are so many with the exact same premise, how can you sue one for infringement but not another? Second, “trade secrets” from former Big Brother contestants? Lastly, I thought that they were marketing this as the viewers can order the contestants to do things/ vote on certain things. I have only seen a few commercials, but wasn’t that the major point everyone came away with, aside from that crappy cover of the Police’s “Every Step” in their head?
I feel like at this point, I have to watch this show, just to see what all the fuss is about. I have a policy of staying away from network reality shows since they are usually cancelled after a season or two ( The Swan, R.I.P). It is more of a personal choice, not so much that I have something better to do. Guess I will have to make an exception.
If you’re going to try, go all the way. … And, you’ll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you’re going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It’s the only good fight there is.
Love Housing Works and such a fun event.
In early June, the publishing industry takes Manhattan for Book Expo America. We’re taking the opportunity to celebrate the millions of amazing readers and writers who call the Tumblr community home.
Aside from the fact that I cannot believe that Linda McMahon is running for political office, I also can’t believe she seemingly gets the WWE legal team involved when there is any sort of criticism against her. I was never into professional wrestling (thankfully) but it is sort of trashy. I can’t see how she can argue against that one.
Maybe this would do something to combat cyber-bullying. Or maybe, it would just be a complete dissolution of First Amendment rights. Either way, it won’t fly. However, there will always be hostility in regard to anonymous commenting. Expect to see more and more of this type of proposed legislation.
For decades at the White House, photographs of the president at work and at play have hung throughout the West Wing, and each print soon gives way to a more recent shot. But one picture of President Obama remains after three years.
In the photo, Mr. Obama looks to be bowing to a sharply dressed 5-year-old black boy, who stands erect beside the Oval Office desk, his arm raised to touch the president’s hair — to see if it feels like his. The image has struck so many White House aides and visitors that by popular demand it stays put while others come and go.
