    Kirby is keeping it real – this went pretty fast – i want 10 more minutes .

  2. Foamy Squirrel says:

    This doesn’t appear to be the same preview picture from when you first uploaded – someone contact you and ask to change?

  3. David Poland says:

    no, Foamy… YouTube only offers 3 screenshots. When I looked at the one that posted, I went in and picked another… takes time for it to be changed.

    This one’s better, no?

  4. Foamy Squirrel says:

    Much better. But being contacted by PR agents is also a better narrative. ;)

  5. sanj says:

    people sure notice the minor things – like the first 10 seconds there is something on the ceiling but nobody knows

    this could have been shot outside – you were 5 seconds away
    from that window.

    Great interview – she’s holding onto some serious starpower. I hope she’s given the chance.

  7. sanj says:

    she got feature in Maxim magazine – the girls of Project X
    its not that risky …

    LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOK

    AT

    HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEER.

    The only flaw in the magical Project X is that kid has THIS chick as his BEST FRIEND but doesn’t seem to notice for half the movie?

    Am I the only one having flashbacks to 1988 when I’m looking at some new actress from a movie called Dangerous Liaisons?

“By the time the sounds of the Von Trapp children warbling ‘Silent Night’ drift through The Giver, you may find yourself wondering what fresh movie hell this is. In truth, the enervating hash of dystopian dread, vague religiosity and commercial advertising-style uplift is nothing if not stale. Adapted from Lois Lowry’s book for young readers, the story involves an isolated society that, with its cubistic dwellings, mindless smiles, monochromatic environs and nebulous communitarianism, seem modeled on a Scandinavian country or an old Mentos commercial.”

“It’s possible that in the coming days or, God forbid, weeks, the president could have something more specific to say about the freighted decades-long history of political imbalance at work, in this case between a mostly black working-class town and its majority white government and police force. But this is a black man who must choose his words about race, governance, and law enforcement even more carefully than a white politician would. And this is the third summer in which, as president, he would have to do so…

“Until this point in the turmoil, the absence of the crucial second face in the incident seemed to heighten the distance between police and the people they serve. It grants them both an anonymity and autonomy that matches the bizarre transformation, in Ferguson and elsewhere, of police into troops. The riot gear turns 2014 into a dot on a Jim Crow–era timeline. Since the officer’s name wasn’t made public more immediately, it should have seemed urgent for the police to lose the riot attire and take steps to minimize distrust, to dispel the contagious assumption that silence equates racism…

“What is so affecting isn’t just that 18-year-old Michael Brown was killed when he was barely a man. It’s other things as well. One was how many reports of the incident that first day mentioned that he was about to start college. That’s a rite that’s universally emotional. But for a black male from a poor family, the first day of college is a freighted day that usually requires the sacrifice of more than one person. Black people know the odds of getting to and graduating from college, and that they’re low. That Brown seemed to be on the right path compounded the parental, local, and national outrage over his being wiped from it.”
