Drake Says Enough Is Enough
Get Your Fillin' Of Jimmy Fallon!!!!

Oh boy, another whiny emo pussy.

Emma Watson (who’s been fully legal for two years now, btw) is at the top of the page because she’s set to star in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, opposite Percy Jackson’s Logan Lerman (whose name always makes me think of Thurman Merman, and then I get sad because I wish I was writing about Thurman Merman instead).  If you’re thinking that The Perks of Being a Wallflower sounds like yet another glorification of whiny loserdom, well… I’m pretty sure you’re right.  The film would be based on the 1999 Stephen Chbosky novel.

Sulk in the corner, Publisher’sWeekly:

The novel is formatted as a series of letters to an unnamed “friend,” the first of which reveals the suicide of Charlie’s pal Michael. Charlie’s response–valid enough–is to cry. The crying soon gets out of hand, though–in subsequent letters, his father, his aunt, his sister and his sister’s boyfriend all become lachrymose. Charlie has the usual dire adolescent problems–sex, drugs, the thuggish football team–and they perplex him in the usual teen TV ways. Into these standard teenage issues Chbosky infuses a droning insistence on Charlie’s supersensitive disposition. Charlie’s English teacher and others have a disconcerting tendency to rhapsodize over Charlie’s giftedness, which seems to consist of Charlie’s unquestioning assimilation of the teacher’s taste in books.

Good thing the publisher talked Chbosky out of his original title, “Whiny Pussy Who Cries & Reads Books.”
