Torture Part Deux - Ire Still Up!

After yesterday's post on Operation Filmmaker I thought a good night's sleep would give me a chance to cool down. Not-so-much. I kind of feel even worse.  My husband and I have been discussing it all day.

In the end we've come to the conclusion that most workplaces have a dud or two. Mark and Liev are probably looking back on this experience as one guy who was just an uber-loser. They're both above letting it become some insidious internal campaign against future good will. As Kevin said, this is not their first rodeo.

We were gobsmacked to see how many people became entrenched in his woeful tale of being "pulled from the rubble." And he sure learned how to play the game quickly, didn't he? GROSS.

After my talking last night about seizing such an incredible opportunity and making it your own, it was bittersweet to watch him begrudglingly shining someone's shoes in his video diary (in the Bonus Features). Then he looks right into the camera and says that he has pride and we (Nina?) would never understand.

What an arrogant shit-for-brains!

Recanting my Ranting

I posted a comment last night (ahem, at 2:00am) stating that I would not post the pics of Liev at the Knicks game. I went on a bit of a rant, which is my right since this is my site, about this not being a gossip hub and my desire to keep this place paparazzi free.

Several of you caught my attention by saying that it's no different than posting pics of Liev at an opening of a play that is not his own. And I do see the logic in that.

So, after thinking on it, I decide that I was wrong. As you say he is obviously out supporting or accompanying a friend, he is appearing openly in a place where he is aware that photogs will be present and most importantly his family is not there with that awful deer in the headlights look.

So, I recant my rant and enjoy these Knicks Pics.

How cute is this?

Here's a different kind of Liev mention in my google alerts this morning. TeeHee.

Liev's Baby Face.
