Wow…MSM has gone beyond crazy and is now firmly in LOL land. The headlines are beyond inane…they are downright laughable! I have already encountered several stories this morning that I guffawed about while going through the Censored.News site. Not that the Censored.News site is funny, but the things they are reporting on regarding MSM and many of the crazy libtards out there are.
The first hysterical headline I encountered was a story about Shia LaBeouf’s box office flop in the UK. Wow…I believe that one is a Guinness World Record! His opening weekend take in the UK was exactly 7 pounds…yup, the cost of a single ticket! LOL Wow…that’s like leaving a penny for a tip at a restaurant! Is it evil of me to find delight that Shia LaBeouf’s stupidity has come back to bite him in the butt? Karma is a bitch to be sure!
According to Variety in their article “Shia LaBeouf Thriller ‘Man Down’ Sells Just One Ticket at U.K. Box Office” states:
“Man Down,” a war thriller with Shia LaBeouf, grossed just £7 ($8.70) when it premiered in a single U.K. theater over the weekend, according to ComScore. That’s the equivalent of selling a single ticket, given that the U.K. Cinema Association puts the average movie admission cost in the country at £7.21.
“Poor Shia,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at ComScore. “That opening could be in the Guinness World Records or something.”
The film played in one location, Reel Cinema in Burnley. It was simultaneously released digitally on demand, making the theatrical release something of an afterthought.
The post is probably the nicest one out there, since they do try to analyse why it did poorly, also noting:
…the media has focused on LaBeouf’s off-screen behavior, such several alcohol-related arrests (he got sober), and performance art that recently saw the actor participate in an art installation protesting Donald Trump’s presidency.
Although to be honest, I doubt these things really matter so much to English moviegoers: they don’t have to put up with him. Actually, I guess it didn’t do much better at home:
“Man Down” reunited LaBeouf with Dito Montiel. The two previously worked together on 2006’s “A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints.” The film screened at the Venice and Toronto film festivals to negative reviews. It did better in the United States than it did across the pond, grossing $454,490.
Ummm…never heard of “A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints.” so maybe it wasn’t a good idea to go with the same director? And the fact that it didn’t do well at film festivals should have been another tell. I guess it had really bad reviews too, and this article really lambasted the movie and the actor here:
The Telegraph’s film critic Tim Robey describing it as an “incoherent, deranged PTSD drama [that] is an insult to the intelligence.”
I know it’s wrong to delight in the guy’s misfortune, despite it being of his own making. The Universe is smacking him down real hard and I can’t help but think it couldn’t happen to a better person. I have read that with the higher frequency changes the planet is undergoing that karma is being played out more quickly. Wow…this is definitely a case of that! Just had to laugh at the Telegraph’s quip though:
To say that the new film throws its star under a bus wouldn’t be entirely fair: it’s more a case of the whole bus tipping off a cliff..
And the article also goes on to point out another LOL moment…
The film’s poor performance will come as another setback for LaBeouf, whose “He Will Not Divide Us” anti-Donald Trump art project has been forced to move multiple times this year. In March, a group of Internet sleuths tracked down the actor’s art project in a remote location in Tennessee and replaced it with a “Make America Great Again” hat.
I’m sorry, but I think it’s all hysterical and I have absolutely zero sympathy for the man! I still can recall the horrible way he abused and assaulted people in front of that damn installation…he was rightly jailed for it! Definitely a Trump derangement syndrome idiot! 😦
Okay, enough about the joke that is Shia LaBeouf. Let’s laugh at some stupid MSM outlets. Like the Boston Globe who did a piece on the significance of Melania Trump’s crossed arms in her official bio. Like it wasn’t enough to diss her for the photoshop job, or the “pussy bow”, or her huge diamond wedding ring. No, let’s diss her for crossing her arms. sigh. Twitchy did a great job at poking fun at this story in their article “Boston Globe’s investigation into Melania Trump’s crossed arms blows lid off American arm crossing“. LOL I am reminded about the stupid news story about Trump being afraid of stairs, and the great Russian dressing expose (it’s actually a US product). sigh. Is it me? The stupidity has made MSM a laughing stock. I think this is rightly so, since they are being relegated to the level of a joke, which they really have become.
Now this next story is a joke in a nasty way…some Democrat senator is filibustering the SCOTUS pick, but Twitchy has a humorous take on it in their article “STUNT IN PROGRESS: Sen. Jeff Merkley has been filibustering Gorsuch all night long, and is still at it“. I wish I knew how to embed tweets, but going over to the article, they showcase a ton of them that diss this “stunt in progress”. I guess the senator has been at it for 12 hours or more now…and another one has joined him. I love the dig here though:
If a Senator filibusters a SCOTUS nominee in the woods and nobody cares to watch him on CSPAN, does he make a sound?
LMAO…I think that’s hysterical! Nope, he doesn’t, because I know I won’t be going to watch the CSPAN feed on it ever! LOL So I will never know what exactly he said. What’s also hysterical is that this senator is doing it in the hopes that something will come of the inquiry into the whole Russian hacking thing. Seriously??? Ohmigod…what a waste of time and breath! There is NOTHING to that fake narrative, so his filibustering is all for naught. Dear God…don’t these people have anything better to do with their lives??? sigh. But thanks for the laughs this morning! LOL
