I am funny (On the Internet)

A Hollywood journalist tweeted about Nelson Mandela and had to mention he's the subject of an Oscar buzz-worthy biopic.

"R.I.P. Nelson Mandela, subject of Weinstein Co’s Idris Elba-starrer 'Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom' which opened Nov 29 and has awards buzz." — @NikkiFinke


So Twitter has been full of similar insensitive Tweets with the hashtag #FinkeObits:


"RIP Princess Diana, whose death paved the way for Helen Mirren's Oscar but also inspired a mediocre Naomi Watts vehicle. #FinkeObits" - @embeedub

"RIP Abraham Lincoln, who fought both vampires and racism at the box office. #FinkeObits" - @Ethan_Anderton

"#FinkeObits R.I.P. Downfall's Adolph Hitler, best remembered for inspiring an army of hilarious internet memes. #MemeKampf" - @withtwoteas


These are my contributions:

"Leave @NikkiFinke alone! You're a bunch of Bullies! Speaking of which, the Weinstein Company's Bully is now out on Blu-Ray #FinkeObits"

"Leave @NikkiFinke alone! You're all a bunch of phonies! The Weinstein Company/Shane Salerno's Salinger in the works. #FinkeObits"

*snerk!*

It crossed my mind last night - I wonder if they will re-run Mandela and DeKlerk or Invictus first...

I literally took two naps through Invictus. I am not ashaned

I did that during No Country For Old Men. Twice.

Confession time. I LOVE Coen Bros and consider myself middle-brow to high-brow and I didn't appreciate the structure of that movie. Who kills the protagonist off-screen?

I'm hit and miss on the Cohen Brothers. There are a handful I loved on the first viewing (Burn After Reading), some I hated that grew on me (Big Lebowski) and some I HATE HATE HATE HATE (Fargo)

They all grow on me.

My faves are Barton Fink and miller's Crossing. John Turturro is incredible.

I love Barton Fink, Miller's Crossing I like okay. I rented it to watch with my Dad, he went to bed in the middle and I was left to try to explain it to him in the morning.

I like rugby so it wasn't too bad for me.

Now I want to watch some examples of the "Downfall" meme. That's what it's all about.

I got something like 13 retweets. I've never been retweeted before. I feel like a star. Yay, dogpilibg!
