A few days ago, Lost executive producer Damon Lindelof, who has 130,000 Twitter followers, Tweeted “Emma Frost’s THREE mutant powers: Telepathy, Transformation to Solid Diamond and last but not least, Sucking at Acting.” It almost immediately got picked up by countless blogs and retweeted hundreds of times, because it turns out that a lot of people agree about January Jones’ acting vis-a-vis how much it sucks. Well now Damon Lindelof is ashamed of what dicks you all are. I guess some people have a lot of growing up to do. Late last night he tweeted:
“I am only slightly less disgusted with the amount of play my X-Men comment got than I am with myself for making it in the first place.”
I enjoy watching the entertainment industry’s growing pains as they try to reconcile the consequences of having opinions with a forum that allows you to immediately broadcast your off-hand remarks to millions of people, even it’s 3 am and you’re sh*tcanned on booze and Ambien, NOT THAT I’M POINTING ANY FINGERS, SANJAY GUPTA. Anyway, I just hope public figures stop self-flagellating for having the occasional controversial thought, or else we’re going to get a lot more Tweeters like Yoko Ono:
“Grapefruit is a hybrid of lemon and orange. Snow is a hybrid of wish and lament.”
Okay, that might not be such a bad thing. On that note, I think Vespa scooters reflect the duality of anticipation and sashimi.
