Mr. Robot Review – Episode 1: Hello Friend
Security is a Myth
Mr. Robot follows a mysterious anarchist, who recruits a young computer programmer played Rami Malek, who suffers from an anti-social disorder and connects to people by hacking them. I saw the mysterious trailers on the USA network, which I was immediately I interested with the concept of a computer hacker but then again I am a sucker for any computer and tech shows like Halt and Catch Fire or Silicon Valley. (Check our review for Season 2 Halt and Catch Fire) But Mr. Robot had a totally different flavor and style.
I totally stumbled upon on the show by accident because I thought it would airing in the middle of summer but there it was on tv and Malek was in the middle of his speech,
“There’s a powerful group of people out there that are secretly running the world. I’m talking about the guys no one knows about. They guys who are invisible. The top 1% of the top 1%. The guys that play God without permission. And now I think they’re following me.”
I was totally intrigued plus I liked that fact that he was a bit of a schizo in a cool Memento kind a way. I also like that he’s a high functioning morphine addict. He gets his rocks off and still manages to hold a 9 to 5 job as a programmer at E Corp aka Evil Corp, the huge corporate conglomerate that has its hooks on everything in the business world. When he’s not getting high or trying to stay awake at his job, he’s a nighttime vigilante taking child pornographers or unfaithful husbands off the streets by blackmailing the sinners with evidence of their own evil doings.
Another reason to watch the show is for the great Christian Slater, who actually plays the mysterious Mr. Robot, who is the leader of this new underground hacker group called F Society. He’s great in every scene he’s in, which he brings comedic levity in a show that has a very serious tone. Another character that adds to the appeal to the show is the beautiful Portia Doubleday, who plays Angela Moss, Malek’s co-worker and love interest. Her character is kinda boring but her being hot makes up for it.
I would totally recommend this show because it’s show about the 99%. It’s David taking on Goliath, it’s Elliot taking on Evil Corp. You want to see the rich guys, who feed on the poor go down with the ship. But the cool thing about the show is that Rami is not your typical hero, he’s more of an anti-hero, which I l empathize with because I like characters who are torn between who they are and who they want to be. This show is more than coding, spreadsheets and business takeovers, its more alive than its title. The show has heart underneath its steel message of not trusting the system. It shows us that we should take more stock in ourselves and use less technology in our daily lives because it’s making us more vulnerable as all our information is out there for anywhere can view and steal. You can have the best security in the world, but if someone really wanted to steal your information, it would be relatively easy. Let’s face it, security is a myth.
Watch this show cause it’s entertaining and you might learn how to protect yourself better from being hacked having your personal information compromised. Next thing you know you’ll be in the market trying to pay for groceries but you can’t because your funds have been drained and someone changed your information into a 14-year old girl from Kansas buying thousands of dollars of cosmetics at Sephora and having an e-mail blast on the current updates of the Kardashians. If you’re not scared, you should be because this isn’t the Matrix and Neo is not coming to save you when your information gets stolen.
“Mr.Robot” is on every Wednesday at 10 p.m. on the USA Network

Here’s a young Christian Slater Gleaming the Cube because life is meant to be lived on the edge, if you’re not close to the edge, then you are taking up too much space.
I fucking hate everyone here.
This whole city
can go to hell.
These old money,
trust fund fucks
with their lip injection
More evil than
Jabba the Hut
with their botox shots,
treating everyone like cunts.
These men with their
money is power types.
high walls with racists pigs,
which even Mr. Orwell
would’ve been horrified with.
Keep hiding behind
your glass houses.
Cause I see through you,
I see all your cracks.
When the “Big One” hits
I hope it strikes here first,
swallowing this whole place
back down to hell.
If there is any justice left in the world,
it will happen.
If not, I’ll just keep
praying to Satan.
What is Bitchy Resting Face? Urban Dictionary describes it as a bitchy alternative to the usual blank look most people have. This is a condition affecting the facial muscles, suffered by millions of women worldwide. People suffering from bitchy resting face (BRF) have the tendency look hostile and/or judgemental at rest. Their expression does not necessarily reflect how they are feeling inside. BRF can ruin friendships and first impressions, start fights and kill an atmosphere.
“That customer just lectured me on customer service and threatened to take her business elsewhere! What did I do wrong?” “Prob just your BRF”.

On Saturday me and Drew went to this year’s AMF2015, it’s sixth edition. I previewed all the bands a week before going and none caught my attention. I felt basically the same way throughout the fest though I was really trying to enjoy everything. So I did what everyone does at a festival like this and took some drugs. Instead of loosing me up and making myself have a good time, I locked my brain in a shell and all I could think of was work. The only thing that was in my mind was talking shit about the show. But in reality, there can be no complains. The people of Tj just ask for way too much and the fest got overhyped. Yes, many bands were subpar and the sound did a lot of mistakes. But for the price of admission and every thing that was done, there can be no shit talking. I sent an article about it to the San Diego Reader already and I have low expectations about it, but still hoping it will get published.

Keith Haring was well known as an internationally famed artist as well as a social activist during his 31 years of life. Keith Haring was a talented pop artist who dedicated his career to bringing gay art and AIDS awareness to the masses. While many in the art world criticized the shop’s commercialism, Haring remained committed to sharing his work affordably with a diverse audience. He received a great deal of support from his friend and mentor, fellow pop artist Andy Warhol.
After being diagnosed with AIDS in 1988, Haring established the Keith Haring Foundation to raise money and provide art to AIDS organizations and children’s programs. Haring dedicated his art and the two last years of his life to creating awareness and fostering understanding about AIDS. In 2008, two of his brightly colored sculptures were added to UNAIDS “Art for AIDS” collection. Haring’s brief but intense career was only the beginning of his growth as a gay icon. His colorful, provocative, and socially-conscious images form an important part of the history of gay symbolism.

According to the LA Times, on Thursday, the Wrap broke the news that McGowan’s agent, Sheila Wenzel, had parted ways with Innovative Artists on Monday. According to the outlet’s sources, once Wenzel was gone, the agency did not want to continue repping the actress.
McGowan, who has been wrapped up in the excitement around the June 21 release of her short-film directorial debut “Dawn” had gone public in a no-big-deal way with some advice that’d been included with a script for a project starring Adam Sandler.
“casting note that came w/script I got today. For real. name of male star rhymes with Madam Panhandler hahahaha I die,” she tweeted on June 17.
The note: “-Please make sure to read the attached script before coming in so you understand the context of the scenes. -Wardrobe Note: Black (or dark) form fitting tank that shows off cleavage (push up bras encouraged). And form-fitting leggings or jeans. Nothing white.”
A few days later, she tweeted an explanation of her reaction. “I was insulted by the instructions to ‘read the script for context.’ Hahaha.”
“I just got fired by my wussy acting agent,” the actress tweeted Wednesday night, “because I spoke up about the” — let’s call it the hooey — “in Hollywood. Hahaha. … #awesome #BRINGIT”
Do you think she should have been fired from her agent? Is Hollywood sexist?
