Under US law, those caught recording a movie in a theater face a maximum three-year prison sentence. As many as 41 states have laws against in-theater recording, too.

i was rolling my eyes through half this episode
Harry Styles is the subject of most of Taylor Swift's new album 1989. Here's a complete recap of their relationship, from their first hookup in April 2012 to their current friendship.

Their first hookup in April 2012
Taylor dances to What Makes You Beautiful at the Kids' Choice Awards
Taylor and Harry first met at the Kids' Choice Awards on March 31 2012. One Direction's Liam joked the following day: "I thought Harry might have went to the bathroom just a little bit when we met her." Also that week, Justin Bieber invited both Taylor and One Direction to his LA mansion, where they swam and "just hung out". Bieber told Britain's Daily Mirror that "one of the biggest artists in the world thinks Harry is so hot, but I have been sworn to secrecy."
During an MTV interview, One Direction teased a bashful Harry about Taylor. "Did any particular person stand out for you [at the Kids' Choice Awards]? Just so we can get your drift ... a really quick one." When Harry finally mentioned Taylor's name, his bandmates shouted, "Jackpot!" As the conversation moved on, Harry muttered to Louis Tomlinson: "I'm going to kill you!"
Days later, both Harry and Taylor were spotted separately at New York's Bowery Hotel. One Direction were in town for promotional duties while Taylor was on a trip with girlfriends.
In late April, One Direction began a tour of Australia and New Zealand, during which Harry revealed that he had exchanged numbers with Taylor: "We met in America. She is very talented. She's very nice ... We're friends."
Harry photographed with Emily Ostilly in New Zealand
However, the flirtation with Taylor came to an abrupt end when Harry was photographed kissing model Emma Ostilly during a night out in Auckland, New Zealand. A Taylor friend later told Vanity Fair that there was "a weekend where they got really close and he was all, like, 'You're amazing - I want to be with you. I want to do this.'" According to the friend, he then texted Taylor while on tour to alert her to pictures online where he was "kissing a friend good-bye." When Taylor searched for the pictures, she discovered they were "making out with like their hands all up in each other's hair."
In the following months, Harry was linked to model Cara Delevingne while Taylor enjoyed a two-month summer fling with Conor Kennedy. In a July interview, Taylor was asked to name her favorite One Direction member and jokingly replied, "How could you possibly choose?!"
Harry and Taylor posed with fans at LA's Katsuya in September
The pair were next seen together on September 6 2012, when Popstar reported that Harry and his bandmates watched Taylor's final MTV Video Music Awards rehearsal. The couple later enjoyed a post-show meal at LA's Katsuya with a group that included their mutual friend Ed Sheeran and Taylor's bandmates. They posed separately for photos with fans inside the sushi restaurant.
Taylor and her boyfriend Conor Kennedy had their final meeting on September 16. In October, a source revealed that the couple had "quietly parted ways a while ago. It was just a distance thing. No hard feelings. They're fine."
Backstage at the Radio 1 Teen Awards
On October 7, both Taylor and Harry performed at London's Radio 1 Teen Awards. They spent a lot of time together backstage, leading radio hosts to speculate on-air about whether they were romantically involved. The Sun reported that Taylor and a "mystery" member of One Direction had arranged to have dinner at the upmarket Luton Hoo Hotel after the concert. However, when the tabloid's Bizarre columnist received a tip about the reservation, the meal was suddenly cancelled. When One Direction were later asked about the rumor during an Irish chat show appearance, Louis Tomlinson suggested that Harry "take this one". However, Harry replied that he "didn't get asked" to dinner.
Later that month, Harry named Taylor as one of his celebrity crushes, alongside Rihanna and Rita Ora, telling Seventeen: "Taylor’s a really lovely girl. Honestly, she couldn’t be a sweeter person. She’s a great girl and she’s extremely talented. She’s one of those people you meet [who’s] genuinely a nice person. Some people you meet and they are not as nice as you make them out to be, but she’s one of those people who’s really just amazing. She deserves everything she has.”
In an interview published at the beginning of November, Harry told Cosmopolitan that he was currently dating someone: "There's someone I like. If you're shown in the papers with other girls when you really like someone else, that's difficult. But still, I think it's important if you're thinking about starting a relationship to do it away from the spotlight. I thought I [had a type] but this girl I like isn't my 'type'. It's more about the person. How they act, their body language, if they can laugh at themselves. I find ambition really attractive too - if someone's good at something they love doing. I want someone who is driven."
Styles was photographed wearing his necklace on October 30. By November 7, it was in Swift's possession
During a promotional appearance in London on November 7, Taylor was photographed wearing a silver It's A Paper Airplane chain identical to that owned by Harry, who replaced his chain with a new pendant. Also around this time, One Direction's Niall Horan told People his favorite song of 2012 was Taylor's "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together." When asked if he would ever date Taylor, Niall gave a small laugh, looked at Harry and answered with a succinct, "no."
Harry and Taylor backstage at The X Factor
On November 14, Harry flew from New York to LA to spend two days with Taylor. He accompanied Taylor to an LA television studio to rehearse for her X Factor performance. "He was sitting with her mum Andrea and she seemed won over too", a source told The Sun. "After Taylor finished, he picked her up over his shoulder and carried her to her trailer. They were holding hands and flirting all day." The source continued, "Taylor was really embarassed by what happened [in April] and was nervous about giving him another go. But this time they have spent more time getting to know each other. Harry is being careful because he doesn't want to hurt her again. But he's made it clear he likes her a lot. They've been quietly seeing each other again for a little while now."
Harry and Taylor were photographed together for the first time on Decmeber 2 2012 while visiting the zoo in Central Park, New York with friends.
Later that night, they posed for photos with fans after dinner at SoHo's Bond St. restaurant, where they dined with Ed Sheeran and Harry's mother and stepfather.
On December 3, they made an apperance at the Hudson Hotel, as part of One Direction’s Madison Square Garden afterparty. They were joined for karaoke by Ed Sheeran and the rest of One Direction. They sang Dolly Parton’s “Islands In The Stream”, Elton John’s “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” and the Backstreet Boys’ “I Want It That Way”. Harry's father later tweeted that Taylor was "natural, kind and welcoming." The pair were photographed arriving at Taylor's hotel at 4am.
On December 6, they attended the birthday party of Taylor's friend Emma Stone at the Crosby Street Hotel. A source told PEOPLE: ”Taylor and Harry were being very smoochie. They definitely looked like a couple.” They held hands and Harry seemed “really protective of her” and kept his arm around her during the party: “They’re not trying to hide it. The bar was packed.”
At Z100's Jingle Ball on December 7, Harry and Taylor watched each other's performances from side-of-stage, and kissed, hugged and danced backstage while other acts were performing. They left the event to take a red-eye flight to London on Taylor's private jet. The rest of One Direction travelled on a commercial flight.
Taylor accompanied Harry and the rest of One Direction for their promotional appearance on The X Factor Final in Manchester, England on December 10.
On December 11, Harry and Taylor had dinner at The Rising Inn in Derbyshire, England with Harry's sister and her boyfriend.
An eyewitness told Heatworld: "Harry and Taylor were putting spoons on their noses and fooling around with each other and taking photos of each other. After that, they were stood talking and Harry kept putting his hand on Taylor’s bum. Taylor had her arms around him a lot and they were really close all night. They seemed like they got along really well and they got on with Harry’s sister and did seem like a normal couple. They were sat together opposite Harry’s sister and you could see Harry’s hand on Taylor’s lap the whole evening.” Later that evening, they were spotted grocery shopping at a nearby Tesco.
On December 12, the couple visited Bowness-on-Windermere in the Lake District. They posed for a photo with birds and stopped into the World of Beatrix Potter store. Taylor bought some soft toys, and she and Harry struck the workers as “nice and charming. They were dancing around to the seasonal music being played. Harry was being the most boisterous." Later that night, they stopped for takeout at a curry house.
On the morning of Taylor's birthday on December 13, Harry collected 23 pre-ordered cupcakes from a local bakery. Later in the afternoon, the couple left their private home in the north of England and took a drive around the English countryside, a source told E! News. They then drove to a quaint little village called Great Budworth and stopped at the cozy George & Dragon Pub for a bite to eat. After staying there for just over an hour, Harry and Taylor could be seen laughing and joking as they headed out and drove off. That night, they stopped by Fortune City restaurant in Harry's hometown of Holmes Chapel.
On December 14, Harry drove Taylor to Manchester airport where she boarded an international flight to Germany. While there, she told an interviewer she had the "best birthday since I was about six years old."
On December 18, Taylor accompanied Harry to LA's Shamrock Tattoo Parlour, where they posed for photos with fans.
Harry and Taylor visited Taylor's mother at her house in LA on December 19
They were photographed on a skiing vacation in Park City, Utah on December 21. After a day on the slopes, the pair had dinner with friends at Grappa, where an onlooker told Us Weekly they “looked happy and in love.”
Harry arrived in England on December 24 (and showed off his injury at a party with friends)
Harry and Taylor were photographed by fans kissing at midnight after Taylor's performance in Times Square on New Year's Eve. They were later photographed returning to their hotel and left town on Taylor's private jet early the next morning.
On January 3, Harry and Taylor were photographed having dinner and drinks at CocoMaya while on vacation in the British Virgin Islands's Virgin Gorda. Us Weekly reported that the trip was a "surprise" for Taylor: "He planned it and whisked her away." After dinner, the couple returned to their boat. However, later that night, a drunk Harry "left Taylor on their boat for a few hours without telling her where he was going." When he returned, Taylor, "a former tetotaler who was also knocking back cocktails," was "crying and furious. She called him a dick and accused him of running around with girls."
Taylor left the island the following morning; first taking a boat to an larger, adjacent island and then travelling by private jet back to Los Angeles. An eyewitness at CocoMaya remarked: "I would never have guessed a break-up would come judging by their body language. Taylor constantly had her head on Harry’s shoulder. They were very close to each other the entire time and constantly leaning into each other. My sisters and I even saw them share a kiss."
At the 2013 Grammy Awards, Taylor used a British accent during her performance of We Are Never Getting Back Together. When asked for comment, Harry said: "She knows what she’s doing on stage. It was just another good Taylor Swift performance."
Harry and Taylor avoided each other at the Brit Awards in London weeks later. Asked about the possibility of running into her, Harry responded: "I’m not worried about seeing her at all. She’s a sweet girl, you know. I don’t have a bad word to say about her.” While Taylor said she "directed" her performance of I Knew You Were Trouble at Harry, he thought "her performance was really good. She looked great." Ed Sheeran joked about his awkward position at the ceremony: "I’m like Switzerland. If you talk to one about the other, the drama starts!”
In other interviews during this period, Harry said: "I can’t say I’d have dated someone less famous to avoid [having songs written about me]. I think it’s people. You like people for who they are, so I couldn’t say I want to date someone less famous because of the hassle. You like who you like. At least she’s a great songwriter! It would be hypocritical for me to say she couldn’t do it because everybody writes songs based on personal experience."
"The only time [fame] gets really annoying is that if you get into a relationship and you get into a place where you really like someone and then things are being written in the papers that affect them and how they see you. Then it can get annoying. I think relationships are hard enough, so I think you have to completely ignore everything from outside. When you’re in the opening stages of a relationship as it is, you’re still under the pressure of getting to know everything about a person. If you have a lot of people from outside telling you what it is and they don’t even know you, telling you what your relationship is, that’s weird. So I think you sort of have to block it out and just have the relationship rather than think - we’re having this relationship play out on magazine covers."
The Sun reported in August 2013 that the couple had put their differences behind them. While Taylor was reported by some media outlets to have whispered "Shut The Fuck Up" while Harry was on stage at the VMAs, other sources insisted Taylor was responding to her friend Selena Gomez, who said she had no chance of winning the category One Direction were announcing. Taylor was seen giving One Direction an enthusiastic standing ovatation when they won an award.
Harry and Taylor both attended an intimate afterparty hosted by mutual friend Ed Sheeran following the VMAs. Ellie Goulding, another attendee, said there was no tension between the pair and that they seemed to be "friends."
At the VMAs in August 2013
In December 2013, Harry told J17: "I think a lot of the time, you still have feelings for an ex, and sometimes it doesn't matter how long it's been. Sometimes you feel like you have unfinished stuff, and it's okay to get back together with them."
In March 2014, Taylor and Harry both attended The Weinstein Company's Pre-Oscar dinner party at the Montage Hotel. They were seen having a "friendly 10-minute chat" before the dinner. "They looked totally fine considering all their history."
Another onlooker remarked that rumors of a feud appeared to be "wide of the mark," with the couple seeming "totally cool with one another."
Also in March, Harry bought a house in the same Beverly Hills neighbourhood as Taylor.
In October 2014, Gavin DeGraw revealed he had recently written a song with Harry: "It’s called “Not Our Fault” and I think it’s a winner. It’s about… if it doesn’t work out sometimes you can’t necessarily just blame it on yourselves, you know, sometimes it’s what’s going on around you. Sometimes it’s other things that have nothing to do with the two people involved, those factors that you can’t control. It touches on that type of subject. It’s a way of saying you’re giving up, but it’s not necessarily you’re giving up because you don’t love each other."
Harry also wrote the breakup song I Love You ("I love you/ More than you think I do/ And I love you/ Now you don't want me to"), recorded by Alex and Sierra. The song has pointed references to various Taylor lyrics ("We lay there on the soft warm ground for a week and thirteen days", "You've heard all this before/ I didn't come back and I wasn't there/ I won't trouble you no more.")
While promoting 1989, Taylor said it was "a new concept for me actually, writing songs about things that have happened in romantic relationships and being able to run them past the person that they’re about."
The early death of top-billed star Drew Barrymore took a page from Hitchcock’s book and added a heavy dose of slasher-film sensibilities, effectively reviving the genre for another go ‘round.
The reverse bear trap scene got the torture porn revolution started with, well, not so much a bang as a crunch.
3-The Cabin In The Woods (2012)
This movie overall wins for originality, but the elevator massacre wins for referential self-awareness.
The Chest-buster scene is famous now, but at the time no one - not the audience, not even the cast, could have known what was coming.
1-Let The Right One In (2008)
The pool scene from Låt den rätte komma in is not the most terrifying or the goriest death. Rather, it takes top prize on our list due to its artistry and restraint.
Watch the video for the rest of the list.
YAY to LTORI! If you haven't seen this movie or read the book, DO IT!
What's your favorite horror movie death, ONTD?
The album will be released on December 2, features all the original members of the group, minus Old Dirty Bastard. You can listen one of the singles, "Ron O'Neal":

Why: She's Hollywood's hottest actress right now. She's 24 years old, has 3 Oscar nominations and 1 win, and stars in one of the biggest franchises of all time. She has proven her acting chops in films like Winter's Bone and Silver Linings Playbook, yet she can still anchor the big budget action pictures like Mockingjay.
Why Not: She also currently stars as Mystique in the X-Men series, and FOX may not be willing to let her go over to Marvel Studios just yet. Plus, we think JLaw may want some time off from the blockbuster press tours after The Hunger Games comes to an end.
Why: Kiernan is a true up-and-comer, and is ushering in the next generation of Hollywood actresses. She's starred as Sally Draper on Mad Men for the past 7 years, and with that series coming to an end, we are excited to see what she will be up to next! Plus, she's shown her range on the Lifetime Original Movie Flowers in the Attic.
Why Not: She may just be a tad too young. Although Captain Marvel won't be in theaters until 2018, Shipka will still be a teenager by that time.
Why: I have no doubt that Amber's agent has already been calling up Kevin Feige for this role. It is almost a no brainer that her name is going to be coming up alongside casting rumors for the next few months. She's also proven she can hang in there in action movies: 3 Days to Kill, Machete Kills, and Zombieland.
Why Not: She hasn't truly proven herself as a leading lady quite yet.
Why: While Lupita N'yongo was the new Hollywood and Oscar darling this past year, Margot Robbie's role in The Wolf of Wall Street got her nearly just as much attention. Since then, she's been lining up roles left and right, and has a jam packed slate of films for the next few years. In the works? Focus with Will Smith, Tarzan as Jane, and The Taliban Shuffle with Tina Fey.
Why Not: She might be just a tad too busy with her upcoming films. She's also been approached for DC Comics' Suicide Squad, so Marvel better act fast if they want her on board.
Why: Natalie, Natalie, Natalie. Seemingly the early Tumblr-favorite for the role, she already looks to have quite a bit of fan support. She's has roles in Game of Thrones and the upcoming Mockingjay films, and her name is certainly entering into American households.
Why Not: She previously played a small role in Captain America: The First Avenger, and Marvel may not want to bring her back as a different character.
Why: Another Hollywood up-and-comer, Teresa made a mark with her role in Warm Bodies last year. She's also starring in the upcoming Point Break remake, as well as Terrence Malick's Knight of Cups alongside Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, and Cate Blanchett.
Why Not: She may be a little too under-the-radar for Marvel.
Why: Get ready ONTD - you are going to be seeing a lot of Gugu in the next 12 months. After a leading role last year in the indie hit Belle, Gugu has been garnering lots and lots of early awards season chatter. She's also just gorgeous and stunningly talented.
Why Not: In all honesty - it isn't very likely Marvel will cast a woman of color in this role. But not going to count her out just yet!
So there you have it! Who do you want to see cast in the role, ontd?
One of rap's most tumultuous on and off partnerships is apparently back on. Rapper Juvenile spoke with MTV last month and confirmed that he had signed with Bryan "Baby" William's Cash Money Records once again. The New Orleans native says that when all is said and done, he plans on retiring as a Cash Money artist.
"It's already done, man. I signed the paperwork a couple days ago," Juvenile said when asked whether he would ever consider signing with Cash Money Records again. "I'm signed back, Rich Gang. I'm about to get my little tattoo and everything. It's all love, I'm back."¹
Can we expect a resurgence in Juvenile's career? CMR has bred some incredibly successful acts in the recent years. Unfortunately (not really) unless your name is Lil' Wayne, Drake or Nicki Minaj they probably don't give a shit about you. Earlier this month, rapper Lil' Twist (also known as Justin Bieber's partner in crime) fired off a series of tweets blasting his Young Money management over phantom mixtape release dates.² Young Money artist Tyga also went on a Twitter rant, threatening to leave the label after accusing them of holding back his album.³ He confirmed in a recent VIBE interview that he was moving away from Cash Money and into the indie scene (good luck bruh).⁴ Did you know that Bow Wow has been signed to Cash Money for the past 5 years? Neither did most people. His album has been delayed since 2011.⁵
What do you think? Is third time the charm for the Juvenile-Birdman connection or will Juvie get the Jae Millz treatment?

90/early 00's hip-hop post!!
If you're wearing Google Glass (let's be real, that's what they're talking about), the MPAA wants you to turn it off at showtime.
From Ars Technica: "Individuals who fail or refuse to put the recording devices away may be asked to leave. If theater managers have indications that illegal recording activity is taking place, they will alert law enforcement authorities when appropriate, who will determine what further action should be taken," said a joint statement from the MPAA and the National Association of Theatre Owners, which maintains 32,000 screens across the United States.
Remember last year, when they wanted movie owners to go undercover brother on patrons who may be using illegal recordings?
The famous Alamo Drafthouse was one of the first US movie houses to ban Google Glass.
braindeadbread asks: Amy, How do you treat yo self?
Amy Poehler: Fine leather goods.
1daisybuchanan 413 asks: You've had a long day and no time to cook.. What's your go-to meal?
Amy Poehler: Mmm. Oh! Well right now I'm eating tortilla chips and salsa while I do this. And I've had a long day, and no time to cook. So life imitates art, reddit.
Jphan1048 asks: Hey Amy! Who was your favorite guest star on parks?
Amy Poehler: Oh, we had so many good ones!!! We had surprise ones that we can't believe we got, like Michelle Obama, Joe Biden and Ginuwine. We had great comedy people, like Louis CK... and Nick Kroll, Jason Mantzoukas... anytime a UCB person comes by, it's always great. We've had so many good guest stars come by, it's an embarrassment of riches.
terattt asks: What pickup line is guaranteed to work on you every time?
Amy Poehler: "Are you tired? You should leave this party and go to sleep."
Oh, you're right! Thanks! Bye!
Rebinator3000 asks: In season 2 you not only landed the Emmy nom but absolutely killed it and got me hooked on the show. My question to you is when Chris Pratt actually flashed you when he mistakenly thought Anne wanted him back, what was going through your head? And how hilarious was it to rewatch your own reaction? It was priceless on my end.
Amy Poehler: It was really fun... that was early on in the show, I just remember laughing, just like I do at everything Chris Pratt does. He's genius.
Damonstration asks: How do I avoid becoming depressed after Parks and Recration is over?
Amy Poehler: Get some sunlight, go for a brisk walk, take your Vitamin D, call a friend, make sure you change out of your pajamas at some point in the day.
BoopsAndBeeps asks: If you were a Game of Thrones character who would you end up sleeping with and how would you end up dying?
Amy Poehler: HAHAHA! If I was a character, I would sleep with everyone, but let's be real, the Dothraki are where it's at. And I would never die! I would just do some kind of weird, you know, witch thing that couldn't be killed!
TheMidgetCrusader asks: What's your favorite dinosaur?
Amy Poehler: Oh! Pterodactyl. Because the P is silent. And my kids - that's the punch line to one of my kids' favorite jokes.
jonemillard asks: Hey Amy! What has been your oddest fan encounter?
Amy Poehler: Oh, I usually have very nice, polite fans. I don't have anything too weird. And I don't want to tell you, because I don't want to give any weirdos any ideas.
ImRichieDagger asks: Hey Amy, I’m a huge fan of your work. I was curious as to how much involvement you still have with UCB? Also, my wife wanted to mention that you are her hero and she loves Smart Girls at the Party.
Amy Poehler: Oh THANK YOU! To your wife, and you. I still perform at UCB in New York & LA whenever I can, and just this weekend, we are celebrating opening our new space in Los Angeles, so I see those guys all the time and it was fun to write about our experiences in the book.
madladill asks: HI AMY, I have to say I absolutely love you and have been waiting for this ama all day. My question to you is, is there a chance we'll get to see you on the big screen anytime soon?
Amy Poehler: We just finished a movie called "The Nest" that is coming out next year! And I'm also doing a voice in the new Pixar movie "Inside Out" which is coming out in June, and it's a great film, can't wait for people to see it. And catch me as a dungeonmaster in "50 Shades of Grey!" You can't tell it's me cuz I'm wearing a mask!
SteadyOperative asks: Roughly how many clones of you do you think it would take to beat 1 Nick Offerman in a fist fight?
Amy Poehler: First of all, this person assumes that I would fight Nick Offerman in a physical way. They are wrong. I would destroy him mentally. I would get into that complex, wood-covered mind of his, and rip him to Shreds. And if this is Nick Offerman - nice try, buddy! I'm coming for you!
Silfax 1067 asks: Hi Amy! You can pull off an pretty incredible number of looks. If you had to pick one character you’ve played to live as for the rest of your life, who would you choose?
Amy Poehler: Oooh! That's a good one. Um... maybe...whew... who would I? You know, I think, one time I had to play some, some foolish writer cast me as Penelope Cruz, even though she and I have very little in common. I would like to say I wouldn't mind staying as Penelope Cruz and I think America would agree.
cupidforgets asks: You are just amazing and so hilarious! I just adore Parks & Recreation and your character. You do facial expressions like no other. Does playing such a hyper character take a lot out of you? Do you need mass amounts of caffeine? PS: Your angry face speaks to me!
Amy Poehler: I love playing Leslie Knope, but she says SO many words, and she does talk so much, that sometimes I think my mouth is gonna break. But she does do a lot of talking. I would love for somebody on the internet to figure out how many words Leslie Knope has actually said. Someone on the internet can do that, right?
icedbeer asks: What is your favourite tv show?
Amy Poehler: Well, growing up, I loved "All in the Family" and I loved "CHEERS." I also loved "The Wire" and "Law & Order." There are SO many good current television shows happening too! I love "Broad City"! And I could watch "Judge Judy" every day, all day and all night, don't stop won't stop.
cmurphy97 asks: First, of all I'm a massive fan, you're the funniest person on earth. Your appearance(s) on Comedy Bang Bang's freestyle rap contests are things of incredible notoriety, in a good way. How do you feel freestyle rapping has shaped your career overall?Also, is working with Adam Scott as incredible as it sounds?
Amy Poehler: HAHAHA! Well, you know, look - do I think I'm the best in the game? No. But do I think I'm one of the best? Absolutely. Do I consider myself better than Nas? Totally. Am I a better MC than Jay-Z? We.Shall.See. At the end of the day, I'm just... trying to keep it real. From the heart, and spit like a master. Yes, Adam Scott is a great actor, he's a great kisser, has a GREAT head of hair, and if this is Adam Scott - I'm onto you, stop fishing for compliments!
potus32 asks: What is the most rewarding piece of advice you have been given during your life?
Amy Poehler: Um: hmm. Well, that's a good one. Maybe " Pay attention to what people do, not what they say."
ghostchief asks: Hello Amy, love your work! Who is most like and who is least like their character on P & R off screen? (including yourself and people no longer on the show)
Amy Poehler: Ah! Well, uh, let's see. I think there's a little bit of everybody in their characters, but we aren't all annoyed by Jim O'Hare. So when the character of Jerry comes around, we all can't wait for him to get out of there, but when Jim goes around, we only want him to stay. But Joan Calamezzo, the character, is based on Moe Collin's life. JUST KIDDING!!!
judomonkeykyle asks: If you were to appear on Comedy Central's Drunk History, what historical person would you talk about?
Amy Poehler: Oh, I guess, I feel I don't know anyone's history well enough, but I would pick... maybe a suffragette who liked to party?
whiplash42 asks: Hi Amy, my girlfriend teaches and Reddit is blocked at her school, but she wanted me to ask you:
1. What was your inspiration for "Ask Amy"?
2. Does your love for Harry Potter mirror Leslie's?
3. "Does Adam Scott smell as good as I think he smells?"
Amy Poehler: 1) Oh!! Just the idea of connecting with some people, and just answering letters and questions that come in to us. Simple as that.
2) Ha! Well, in very exciting news, there was a moment of time where Daniel Radcliffe and I were in the same building. And I am a HUGE fan of his work, and I think he's an awesome actor. That being said, unlike Leslie, I have never read the books! I have 2 young sons and I am looking forward to doing that with them soon.
3) Adam Scott smells like... lemons and possibility. Future and peppermint. Loyalty and vanilla ice cream.

Two more allegations against Jian Ghomeshi.
Click here to listen to her talk about her experience
Ten years ago, on their second date, she went to Jian Ghomeshi's house. She was looking around his living room when he suddenly grabbed her hair, threw her to the ground and began punching her in the face repeatedly. They hadn't yet progressed to a sexual relationship and they never negotiated or discussed this. It was completely unexpected. She left his house sobbing, but she was embarrassed and didn't think anyone would believe her. Now that other victims have come forward, she finally feels like she has permission to speak out and like she might actually be believed. She'd like to press charges but she's not sure if she can because of the time that has passed.
As It Happens will air another interview tomorrow, with **yet another woman** who has come forward. And "more" on The National on CBC TV tomorrow evening.
ETA: We're now at 8 allegations, and Lucy DeCoutre of The Trailer Park Boys is the first woman to publicly identify herself.
Click here to read the compilation of allegations: The 4 original allegations The Star published, and the 4 that have been revealed this week.
ETA 2: bigearsteddy twitter account Thank you, invisible_cunt
ETA 3: Please stop the false equivalency between BDSM and rape/abuse. Women can, and do, consent to BDSM. When you equivocate rape and abuse with BDSM, you are undermining that consent. This isn't about shitty male doms, this is about shitty male abusers and the power structures in play that enable them to perpetuate that shit. Demonizing BDSM helps to enable that shit. Women are not consenting to rape, sexual assault or harassment when they consent to BDSM so stop suggesting that they are.
ETA 4: Even more allegations are coming in. The Star is investigating those and they're also investigating what happened this weekend at the CBC between Friday and Sunday that moved them to fire him.
Something positive: An online petition has been started in support of the women. Various awesome people, like Bry Webb and Steve Lambke of The Constantines and artist Shary Boyle have signed their names under the words "we believe you". This is awesome. Feel free to add your name here.
ETA 5: svexsal bravely shared her story (now actually fixed) of being underage and hit on by Jian and, unfortunately, it's not the only one. And another.

IGN: Clarke clearly doesn’t trust the president. Is that something we should back her up on?
Jason Rothenberg: Ray Barry, who plays Dante Wallace, for me he’s just kind of carving out this kind of iconic, sci-fi, “Is he a villain or isn’t he?” sort of role. I just really love what he’s doing. It’s just kind of remarkable. He does make you think at first that he’s genuinely caring about Clarke and I think he is on some level, but we’ll begin to understand what makes him tick and we begin to understand what’s really driving him and then before you know it we start to flip that on his head. Nothing is ever going to stay predictable, hopefully. So Clarke is suspicious of him at first, with good reason. She’s going on her gut and her gut is something that she’s come to trust and I think we as an audience who are investing in her as our hero, have come to trust and should. She deserves our faith. Thank god for her, because the others are sort of going to blindly be drinking the Kool-Aid.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, actor and feminist
+In Spain, a bunch of fangirls were trying to kiss him and the actor who plays Trystane Martell on the streets. These fangirls have been following Nikolaj everywhere in Spain etc, apparently fans in Croatia and Belfast aren't as intense as the Spanish ones.
"[Fans have] become more intense in Belfast for the first time too, but it's nothing like Spain," says Coster-Waldau, who emphasized that while he appreciates the attention, he's unaccustomed to getting quite so much of it. "They're really sweet, but some are like, 'I've been looking for you for two days!'"
