Movie Bosses is Listening to Your Tweets

I was actually doing my daily news reading when I found this article at IMDB.com as reported by Studio Briefing. Just wanted to share this great, yet disturbing, kinda funny news about movie bosses listening to your tweets.
In a clear reminder that all that Twitters isn't told to just a small circle of friends, a woman who had been tweeting about trying to download a copy of Adventureland from a BitTorrent site found a message from the movie's distributor, Miramax: "Cmon Amanda, don't do it. #adventureland # fbi." The message took the form of a thumb-typing instant-message writer, lacking case and punctuation, and appeared to be a warning that the FBI might take action against Amanda if she actually found a copy of Adventureland to download. She did not. She did, however, respond to the Miramax tweet. "Okay I won't, Just For You." This time Miramax responded by offering her a free ticket to see the movie. "I was pretty surprised about it," Amanda told the TorrentFreak website. "I couldn't find a working Adventureland torrent anyway."
Just wondering what'll they say if I tweet... nah never mind.

Sarah Michelle Gellar: Fabulous Forever

This post is extremely off our topic and theme which is the human side of technology, but as I've said before, sometimes its healthy to make posts like these. Well, what would the post be about?

You guessed it right! Sarah Michelle Gellar!

For one, I am a big fan of Sarah. This started on Buffy the Vampire Slayer days and I still continue to diligently follow her project ever since. And a good news for you. It's April 14th! It's Sarah Michelle Gellar's birthday today! Yay!

I also wanted to share another greater news! Its confirmed! Sarah and hubby Freddie Prinze, Jr. are expecting their first baby coming this fall! More yay!

And as additional trivia, I wanted to share some personal favorite quotes of SMG as listed in her IMDB page:

[On job pressures] There's so much pressure on all of us right now. On Katie Holmes, on James Van Der Beek and myself, to do these movies, and do as much as you can because there is the slight feeling that one day your phone will stop ringing. It's not about the craft, per se. It's so easy to fall for it all because people remind you constantly that as fast as it comes, it can go. And I think there is this sort of paranoia, this need to keep working. And I know that I felt it, and for the first three years of the show, I never had more than a week off, except for Christmas. That was it.

[On her kissing scene with Selma Blair in Cruel Intentions (1999)] It was a great kiss. It even had a saliva trail.

One of the greatest gifts my job has given me is that my mother, who gave up her entire life for me, doesn't have to work any more. I'm now in a position to repay her for her devotion.

I am militant about drugs. You want to do 'em? You're out of my life.

[on posing nude] Right now I can't picture posing, but I don't believe in saying never... There might be a time when I got pregnant and felt really beautiful and wanted to have a nude picture.

[On what she would do if she wasn't acting] I would go to college to be a journalist. I always wanted to write for Time or Newsweek.

You'll never know what you're capable of if you don't try.
I love you Sarah!
