cordoba house, ricky gervais [Aug. 20th, 2010|04:54 pm]

[Current Mood |relaxedrelaxed]

As Nate Silver pointed out, there are two ways to be "against" the Cordoba House (Islamic center near ground zero). If you think it's a bad idea, insensitive to 9/11 families, but that the government shouldn't step in, then I disagree with you but we can discuss it rationally. If you think the government should step in and stop it, then I would encourage you to read the First Amendment and get back to me. (if you call it the "Victory Mosque", then we're probably not on speaking terms to begin with)

Random videos: Ricky Gervais had this series Extras with famous people guest starring. Here is David Bowie embarrassing Gervais, Sir Ian McKellen teaching him the secrets of acting, and (mildly NSFW language) Patrick Stewart being creepy. Good for a Friday afternoon!

Yo Greg,

I've never heard of this show before.
All of those clips are over the top!
Thank you!

My favorite Extras bits, other than the pervy Patrick Stewart one: Daniel Radcliffe trying to act macho and adult.

Orlando Bloom trying so hard to get the main girl to like him. His expression at the end is priceless.
