5 Nuggets of Knowledge You Can Use to Ruin Someone Else's Day
It often feels like the trade news that we run on this site is specifically designed to piss many of you off. That’s not the real intention, and I’ve struggled to find ways in which news round-ups can be useful to our readers instead of harmful. I think I’ve finally hit upon it: News You Can Use to Ruin Someone Else’s Day. Say a co-worker of yours is unnaturally giddy this morning; maybe he got laid. Maybe you want to wipe that obnoxious smirk off his face. Maybe he walks into your cubicle while you’re trying to sleep off a hangover and says, “Yo bro! Up and at ‘em, Adam Ant. It’s a beautiful day out!” And you, because you can’t stand his insufferable optimism, drop one of these nuggets of knowledge on him and turn that fucking smile upside down.
You: “Did you hear that Shane Black is up for writer and director of Iron Man 3?
Obnoxious Co-Worker: “Shane Black? Who the fuck’s that? What happened to the Swingers dude? Vegas, baby, Vegas!”
You: “He’s making a movie based on Disney’s Magic Kingdom or something?”
OCW: “Really? Raaaad, dude! That’s gonna be the bomb!”
You: “Yeah. Uh, totally. Anyway, Shane Black was the guy behind Kiss Kiss Bang Bang? That movie where Val Kilmer played Gay Perry.”
OCW: “Wha? Homo? They got some sort of artsy-fartsy director to take over Iron Man. What’s Iron Man gonna do, like, sip lattes and blow dudes?”
You: “Uh, yeah. Something like that. You have a nice day now.”
