  1. Sledgstone liked a post in a topic by Kite in 'Kanye West? He's a jackass,' says Obama   
    http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/us_and_americas/article6835364.ece
    Barack Obama has called Kanye West a "jackass" for interrupting an MTV awards show to declare that the wrong person had won.
    The outspoken rapper was drowned out with boos at the Video Music Awards on Sunday night when he grabbed the microphone from the young country star Taylor Swift and announced that Beyonce had made a better video.
    Asked about the row during an interview with CNBC, President Obama appeared to sum up the national mood pretty well, albeit undiplomatically.
    The problem was that his remark was made during an off-the-record part of the interview which was not going to be made public. Terry Moran, an ABC reporter who was at the recording and overheard the comment, then broke the agreement by deciding to tweet it.
    "Pres. Obama just called Kanye West a 'jackass' for his outburst at VMAs when Taylor Swift won. Now THAT'S presidential," he wrote.
    Mr Moran quickly deleted the tweet but it was too late. The Nightline co-anchor has more than a million followers on Twitter, many of whom had already re-tweeted his remarks.
    The network was forced to apologise to CNBC and the White House and said that it was taking steps to avoid a repeat of the incident.
    Meanwhile, West himself apologised once again for his outburst on an appearance on Jay Leno's new prime time talk show and said that he was going to take some time off for reflection.
    West said that he knew he had been wrong the moment he handed the microphone back to Swift, when he was bathed in boos from the audience. “It was rude, period,” West said.
    The star posted a second apology to Swift on his blog yesterday and told Leno that he wanted to apologise to her in person.
    West fell silent when Leno asked what his mother would have said about the incident, but finally admitted that she would have told him off. West was very close to his mother, Donda, who died in November 2007.
    “So many celebrities, they never take the time off,” he said. “I’ve never taken the time off to really - you know, just music after music and tour after tour. I’m just ashamed that my hurt caused someone else’s hurt."
    getting called a jackass by the president is an achievement LOL

    We lost some posts today because we had to restore a database backup. A corruption issue came out of nowhere and took down the forums for about an hour and 10 minutes until we gave up on fixing the issue and instead restored a backup.

    I haven't added/changed the ranks in years upon years. I've already made a few changes to the existing ranks and I'll be adding some new ranks probably this weekend.

    http://splashpage.mtv.com/2009/09/02/guy-ritchie-to-direct-lobo-movie-still-targeting-pg-13-rating/
    Not to be outdone by Disney's acquisition of Marvel Entertainment, DC Comics and Warner Bros. are rolling out some major announcements of their own this week—the latest involving the cigar-chomping, head-stomping antihero, Lobo. According to Variety, a "Lobo" movie is officially on the way with "Sherlock Holmes" helmer Guy Ritchie attached as director.
    The film, said to be "strong on visual effects," depicts Lobo as "a seven-foot tall, blue-skinned, indestructible and heavily muscled anti-hero who drives a pimped out motorcycle, and lands on Earth in search of four fugitives who are bent on wreaking havoc. Lobo teams with a small town teenaged girl to stop the creatures."
    While his attachment is surprising, we can't say that Ritchie didn't tease the possibility of "Lobo" earlier. The filmmaker previously hinted to MTV News that his next project would be set in a comic book world, though it wouldn't be "Sgt. Rock" as many had speculated.
    "What I like is a world where you have major broad poetic license, whether its comic properties or whatever," he said at the time. "I like stepping into an animated world. Exactly how that animation manifests itself is secondary. The primary thing is to leave what we perceive as a normal world and depart into a '300'-type or 'Avatar'-esque. And that appeals to me. I like 'Sin City' and '300' and 'Watchmen.' I like departing from a normal world."
    All of those movies that Ritchie mentioned boast decidedly dark premises, which isn't surprising considering his work on "Snatch" and "Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels." Still, the WB is aiming for a PG-13 rating for "Lobo," something that producer Joel Silver revealed a few short months ago.
    "I think ['Lobo' is] structured now as a PG-13 movie," the producer said of the film's rating. "I think we've done it that way, but I love it.
    While an R-rating would likely provide a truer-to-the-comics "Lobo," films like "The Dark Knight" proved that a comic book movie can test the boundaries of a PG-13 rating. With any luck, "Lobo" will be no different.
    Do you think "Lobo" and Guy Ritchie are a good match? Are you concerned over the PG-13 rating? Who would you like to see play Lobo?
