    When spinning, denying and deflecting fail, then JP trolls steal somebody’s name. LOL. I wonder how that’d work once Jared implements a registration system. Oh 95% of these “brave fans” would disappear. Hehehe.

    Funny how the name stealing JP troll has the nerve to tell others how to spend their time. Stalking troll posted over 50 comments in last thread and more than half were about me, but of course this name stealing JP troll won’t call her out on her obsession, or will she?

    But tell me loons, what’s up with preferring to discuss regular people instead of the two vapid celebrities whom you use as pretense to troll this site? Do you find their lives to be so boring, really? LOL.

    Another day another 100 comment about Jennifer. You people are seriously obsessed freaks and LOONS. WTF does “Ticky” have to do with Heroina and her newest crusade to save the world? Seriously people you need to let it go. The FACT of the matter is Heroina had and affair with a married man PERIOD. A married man that never loved her but was lured out of his marriage by a sex freak. I mean Brad was bored with his marriage and along comes sex freak Heroina that was willing to let Brad do whatever depraved things he could think of to her while she was all wacked out on heroin. I’m sure they had threesomes, foursomes and I’m sure Heroina got gang b a n ged by who knows how many guys being the wh o re SHE is. Meanwhile poor Jen who did nothing has to worry about Brad coming back with who knows what kind of STDs from that junkie bi tch.
    Just let it go people, be happy he’s stuck with Heroina now that she snipped his ba l ls off and ruined his career. By the way…she looks pretty healthy here doesn’t she? Bawahahahaha!

It find it’s sick satisfaction by hiding behind a computer screen and talk shitt about people who are a trillion times better off than it. Tamshitt/Joe have no credibility. The murderer finds joy coming to a thread that is devoted to Brad and Angelina and stress about what their fans have to say. Anyone who is in a sane mined would find this as insane behavior. It will be a cold day in he’ll when I read a comment from Tanshitt/Joe. As soon as I see the moniker I scroll pass as fast as I can. Why would I want to waste my time reading lies 24/7. I have never been to a tickys thread and leave a comment. And from the looks at tickys thread, Brad and Angelina’s fans are not over there 24/7 because her thread is deader

    Rose lol “booze buddy” that’s a good one yes that’s all she is good for , she never is and never will be a “fun time girl” no matter how hard she tries to be edgy as per her sources CoughHuvaneCough! Rose just Look at all the guys that ran away from her these past 8 years or so no one stood by her longer than the ink dried on their pay cheques from her. That’s how much fun she is NOT she is a bore and a slurring bore.
    .
    By the way there was no photo of Courtney being at the same place that photo of hers (cc) with Ed is at his home & Ticky was at her managers home promoting herself, the last time they both Ticky & CC were seen together was when they did that FAKE sketch for Ellen when she was doing her hosting stint.
    .
    Also you mentioned about Ticky squeezing the life out of Courtney , Rose what I cant stand is a grown assed women being photographed clinging on to anyone like a wet limpet, honestly get aback bone and stand tall, instead of wilting over someone its just so needy and spineless in my eyes.
    .
    You’re good, I haven’t even started shopping yet yes I’m a last minute shopper lol, can’t stand shopping I get board within ten minutes, yes you can set your watch to it lol. Rose its been a while haven’t seen Jaye’s & Were the morons posts I hope they are just busy and not in moderation just miss them.

    .
    PS Rose did you go over to CB and read the posters ripping Ticky apart in her quest to become edgy for Squiggys sake they all have her card marked everyone’s saying Ticky & Squiggy are SPLIT, I only hope they are not as I want to see their babies & wedding photos see I don’t ask much.

    @Susan: You see Susan, the truth always comes out in the end. Courtney house is the fun, with kids, fun and food. Yes girl, Ed Sheeran did let the cat out the bag without even knowing it. He says “At Jens House I JUST drink.”… “Courtney set up like a PA system and I did. Show there. It was very random. One of my all time favorite comedian was there and we ended up jamming and we did like a Rap in Arabic and stuff, it was very fun.”. See Courtney have a child and friends than know how to have fun. Ticky knows how to hit the bottle. I guess tacky was tired of all the boozing and not having any fun, lol. Susan, answer to why did Ticky not send a car for her mon on thanksgiving? Because she believes her mother is a cancer in her life. I hope she never have to feel that pain of what cancer feels like.

    @Whamo:

    Well said Wham. You know there’s a reason why HO named her fans “loons” and Pitty once said that they are “missing a touch in themselves”. They know what they did, and judging by how their looks as well as their careers have declined, it’s crystal clear that they’re dealing with the karma of their actions to this day. Dang does the TOWN PUMP look like shittt or what?

    And I don’t know why loons think that we want for their idols to break up. Oh no no, as hysterical as it may be how loons are in denial about the Brand not standing each other and living separate lives, I for one want for them to stay together. Let them keep their STDs and Hep C to themselves, I say! XD.

    Whiny and Tiny are here together holding hands. It’s interesting that Whiny gets just as vitriolic as Tiny does when they’re having a panic attack and hallucinations.

    Whiny, isn’t a very good friend to Tiny. It’s very evident that Tiny has serious mental health issues what with the panic attacks, hallucinations, hearing of voices, oh and that whole threatening to murder Angelina by stabbing her 100 times thing that he’s got going on. Instead of making sure Tiny gets the much needed help that is needed, Whiny comes here to egg on the illness. Unless, Whiny doesn’t want Tiny to get help because that would mean that Whiny would no longer be needed?

    So, Tiny’s other two alters Whiny and Jhiny all show up together to tag team each other. Things that make you go hmmmm?

    Good Morning Love
    How are you my dear ? You have been immensely missed here I Hope you have been feeling much better compared to how you were feeling couple of weeks ago. I had posted to you a couple of threads back don’t ask which one I’ve lost count, sorry couldn’t post more to you personally just was busy in between.
    .
    Have you see the photos of Brad being in Australia, he made it for Pax’s birthday, see Love that’s what fathers do, they move heaven and earth to be with their loved ones on their special days. I know he’s in the midst of a very very busy work schedule with (Fury) & TYAS , but it’s the actions & thoughts that counts, no wonder he had that big beaming smile on his face when he was there & on his way back. Love Brad managed to get Dirty with his bad Girl Angie hang on is it hot in here or hot lol, I think Brads only got a handful of weeks left to work on Fury and then he’d be back home with his family you know the guy cant keep away from his beautiful darlings.
    .
    Angie looks beautiful in her element Directing, personally speaking I want the opposite of what you said, I “want” Angie to keep on Directing, to keep on getting the opportunities I’m hoping she does the Winston Churchill Bio that Anthony Hopkins mentioned a couple of years ago. Considering her first movie made an international impact & is being brought to the forefront as an example when doing the “Sexual Violence in War Zones” then consider the impact her other movies might have in future, so for that reason and that reason only I want her to keep on exploring new avenues and to keep on venturing into subjects that no one would consider touching.
    .

    She is inspirational in everything she does and she is so bright & clever too and I want her to share that magic touch that inspiration with others like me I just want to sit and listen to what she has to say & do. I’m not talking as a fan but also as a woman it’s humbling to see other women like her rise to the social ladder to much higher levels of hierarchy and make their mark.ok I need to stop beating my feminist drum lol.
    .
    I love Angie’s Sun kissed look but she needs to be careful with that Australian Sun considering her skin is so blemishes, I can offer May services for putting suncream on her arms.
    .
    Love next year we a have a full JP diary with Maleficent , the UK Summit that Angie is Co-Chairing with William Hague, Unbroken, Fury, MIR, more Miraval JP Wine. Love, there are so many blessings to enjoy and rejoice together as fans and to spread their good deeds as admires and don’t forget we might hear soon of Mr & Mrs Pitt, hang on Love I need to close the windows screaming from the Ocean.

    Roger Deakins reflects on ‘The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford’
    .
    It’s also worth noting that Deakins preferred the longer version of the film, which Dominik is still hoping can see the light of day. It delved more deeply into the characters, he says, what happened to Zee and Frank James, “and it just had a better sense of the changing times and the idea that this world was dying,” he says. “And in a way, that’s what Jesse James knew. It was a much more kind of reflective and thoughtful piece. And most of that extra time went on in the latter part of the movie after Jesse James was killed.
    .
    +++++++++++++++++++++
    .
    I REALLY wish Warner Brothers would get their heads out of their asses and stop being so malicious about this movie. I’d LOVE to see the longer cut. So many people noted at the time that Sam Shephard and Mary Louise Parker were relegated to basically cameos but had actually shot many more scenes and those had been part of the original cut. WB was really only interested in the bits with BRAD in them and didn’t want so much time spent on the actors who don’t drive the box office. Oh well, at this point I doubt WB will ever let Dominik release the longer version. That’s how pissed they are that they didn’t get their way with the movie. Cutting off their nose to spite their faces…and yet they continue sending Brad scripts in hopes that he’ll one day say yes to one of their movies. I’m guessing they know that’s a lost cause but if Brad ever says yes to them he ought to make getting the rights to TAOJJ part of his deal. Instead of getting his $20MIL salary – just get his damned movie back from those idiots.

    Valerie Van Galder Exiting New Regency For Disney Imagineering
    ————————————————————————————————–
    .
    By ANITA BUSCH | Wednesday December 4, 2013
    .
    EXCLUSIVE: Valerie Van Galder has left Fox-based New Regency as the head of marketing after a little over a year at the production company to become a franchise management executive at Disney‘s Imagineering. During her stint at New Regency, she worked on such films as the crime drama Runner, Runner with Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake, and the Vince Vaughn-Owen Wilson comedy The Internship. She also contributed on the Oscar contender 12 Years A Slave, the marketing of which was led by Fox Searchlight’s team. 12 Years A Slave, directed by Steve McQueen, led the Independent Spirit Award nominations last week with seven, including best feature and best director.
    .
    Van Galder was hired by Brad Weston who came over from Paramount two years ago to reinvigorate New Regency. No replacement has yet been named for Van Galder who left her post last week. Van Galder’s exit follows Weston’s hire of Pam Abdy as president of production in October. Weston and Abdy had previously worked together at Paramount.

    Maybe 2013 Wasn’t The Year Of ‘The Black Movie’ After All
    ————————————————————————————–
    .
    by Jamilah King, Wednesday, December 4 2013, 10:40
    .
    It’s been a big year in black film, but Shani O. Hilton points out over at Buzzfeed that there’s trouble with lumping this year’s black films — “Fruitvale Station”, “12 Years a Slave”, “The Butler”, etc. — together:…honoring the achievements of black filmmakers by declaring it “their” year does them a disservice. Lumping together heavy dramas with lighthearted romcoms simply because of the skin color of the actors or director prevents these films from being measured against the whiter counterparts that actually share their genre — inadvertently ghettoizing the former and protecting the latter from scrutiny. It’s difficult to imagine pulling, say, Blue Is the Warmest Colour, The Great Gatsby, The Hangover Part III, and The Fifth Estate into a story declaring 2013 the year of the “white movie.”
    .
    If 2013 is notable for black filmmakers in any way, it’s that the models for distribution are more diverse than ever. [London black filmmaker Patrick Victor] Monroe’s smart script led Cumberbatch and his SunnyMarch production company partners to jump on board. The team launched a crowdfunding campaign, leaning on the actor’s name in an attempt to raise about $40,000 on IndieGogo — and ended up with nearly $140,000. (Monroe noted, “I wasn’t sure about using Benedict’s name to raise money — it just didn’t feel right to me — but Benedict was totally in to do it and to be involved.”)

    And not only that, according to Hilton, but we’ve also been here before:The independent black film wave adds a layer of richness to an experience familiar to many black Americans. “Back in the late ’80s and ’90s, it was, ‘Spike Lee has a movie and we have to go see it — gotta go support it,’” said Malcolm D. Lee. “Now there’s a bunch of movies and talented filmmakers out there, and they’re getting their movies funded and they’re going to festivals — and that’s a beautiful thing for filmgoers, the popcorn filmgoer, and the search-out-the-arthouse-theater filmgoer.”

    omg nothing changes around here. The sad thing is they don’t know how they choose to be is I think is a poisonous way back to themselves that is spoiling everything to themselves. it is not only their relationship wise but all around.

    From Indiewire

    The International Press Academy (an alternative to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association) has unveiled its voluminous nominations for its 18th annual Satellite Awards. The film noms cover the gamut of possibilities –including five nominations for a film that voting members are unlikely to have seen, “The Wolf of Wall Street”– with a slightly foreign bias, but the frontrunners here are strong contenders in the Oscar race as well.

    By my count, Fox Searchlight’s “12 Years a Slave” leads with ten nominations, followed by Alfonso Cuaron’s “Gravity” and David O. Russell’s “American Hustle” with eight, Working Title and Ron Howard’s “Rush” with seven (mostly in technical categories) and Disney UK/Australian pickup “Saving Mr. Banks” and the Coens’ “Inside Llewyn Davis” with six. Woody Allen’s “Blue Jasmine,” Martin Scorsese’s “Wolf of Wall Street,” and Paul Greengrass’s “Captain Phillips” scored five and Robert Redford-starrer “All is Lost,” four.
    The ceremony will be held on March 9, 2014, in L.A.
