    Thanks for the riddle! I think this is all about BP…

    It’s been difficult for a long time (I don’t think this is a literal erection/hard clue).
    following atticus — BP (book subtitle starts “48 high peaks” — he is 48)
    blue eyes crying in the rain — sad
    asking jerold panas — asking for money / raising funds
    swinging w/ the finkels — trying to spice up the relationship
    bring back my bonnie — he misses AJ with a little meat on her bones (more plump and healthy-looking)
    xtranormal app — telling his story

    Overall, I think this refers to him trying to get his story straight and getting ready to sell it to the press.

    Jesus hopped the A train is a theatrical production in Pittsburgh that ran in January though not sure how this fits the clue.

    Jesus Hopped the A Train at barebones productions

    Posted by Bill O’Driscoll on Thu, Jan 26, 2012 at 11:00 AM

    click to enlarge
    This prison drama marks the debut local production of any work by acclaimed New York playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis; it’s actually a fairly early play (from 2000) from the man who wrote the 2011 Broadway hit The Motherfucker with the Hat, starring Chris Rock.

    Jesus is in its final week at the New Hazlett Theater, and there’s no point retreading the same ground as the positive reviews the show’s gotten, including Ted Hoover’s for CP.

    I’ll just note that while there’s much to admire about this Derrick Sanders-directed production, it’s worth seeing for Guirgis’ amazing dialogue alone.

    And I don’t mean just the fiery exchanges between prisoner and attorney, prisoner and brutal guard, or even the two prisoners at the heart of the play, Angel and Lucius.

    Rather, I’d single out one brief, quiet slice of dialogue as evidence of the poetry Guirgis can conjure. It’s part of scene where Angel and Lucius meet. Lucius (played by Edwin Lee Gibson, pictured) is a hardened killer who’s found God, while Angel (Raúl Castillo) is innocent and despondent, new to prison, awaiting trial.

    The two men are in adjacent cells, getting their one hour a day of fresh air. There’s a pause in their talk, then Angel says, “… I can’t, I can’t sleep. I can’t in there, do you sleep?”

    LUCIUS. I sleep.

    ANGEL You breathe an shit?

    LUCIUS. Mostly.

    OK, I’m not going to reply to anyone, maybe that was the problem. I agree with Bob that this is about BP and that Staying Erect is not literal. It’s a product to help with premature ejaculation – lovely that I’m typing that! Again, I think that’s not literal, but about controlling the ejection or exclaimation before the proper time. And I think “following atticus” has been a clue before and it was BP at that time. And I’m wondering if the Bible reference is not literal either, but breaking down the PR strategy word for word.

    I’ve got something whacked out with my computer and it keeps interrupting my typing. Annoying!

    Grafikerturk.com – interesting it has no links/no followers, zero trafficking on social media. IMO, there’s nothing going on right now. In the photo his back is to her and she looks bored. It’s just a waiting game. .

    It sounds like the are in a holding pattern (jesus hopped the A train = two prisoners behind bars) until the plan or PR strategy can play itself out for the best possible outcome. For a long time he’s been trying to control any premature leaking of information and his/their image until the timing is right. Until then the lines between what’s real and what’s “computer” generated continue to be blurred.

    I think the reference to “bring back my bonnie to me” refers to JA and how easy and cooperative is was to end that relationship compared to the difficulty in ending the current relationship, rather than him pining away for her. And, I think the “difficulty” stems in part from the extensive business deals and the image & public side to the Brand.

    ———————————————————————
    staying erect…for a long time – male performance formula to control exclaimation (announcement) until the proper time

    image prism – reflection to altar image
    following atticus – BP
    blue eyes crying i the rain – sad; also the song that jump-started Willie Nelson’s career
    asking Gerald Panas — expert on philathropy fundraising = getting he best possible financial earnings
    swinging with the finkels — shake up marriage by swinging w/another couple = a switch
    breaking down the Bible — step by step strategy for deeper understanding
    jesus hopped the A train — a tale of two prisoners behind bars, Angel lost his best friend; Lucius is a serial killer responsible for 8 deaths who has found God. (hmmm…)
    bring back my bonnie to me — bonnie is = to the person being missed by the singer – JA and the simplicity of that split
    xtranormal app — allows users w/no video experience to create their own movies/uses augmented reality which blurs the line between what’s real and what is computer generated

    I think image prism might be referring to “the triangle”….following atticus is a biography/love story/adventure.
    I think Brad misses his old, normal life, and he’s trying to get back to it.

    @payal:
    Let’s see if my computer allows me to reply. My immediate reaction was that the picture looked like Jen w/a city behind her. I was thinking Ian responded to a request for a clue on Jen. But to me the enlarges pic looks more like Jolie and she does have light eyes. Lol, maybe both women are bored waiting for “the plan” to play itself out which means that “swinging with the finkels” could refer to the couples’ “swinging” or switching with each other. The “marriage” could be the media love affair with the “triangle” so the long ago clue of “the switch” comes to pass.

    Now, payal, I know you don’t want that!! (and neither do I for that matter!)

    Staying erect: I believe refers to his huge efforts since pairing with Angie to win awards, but always failing to “stay on top or erect”.

    Image prism: Reminds me of a three-way circus mirror. Each image is slightly skewed: Brad/Jen/Angie? or could this be The Three Faces of Angelina Jolie? How she was at first preceived by Brad, and then how she turned out to actually be, and finally her downward spiral into drugs and failure .

    Staying erect…I don’t think this is literal in sexual sense…maybe how to stay standing or upright after something occurs

    for a long time…longstanding issue/relationship

    image prism…images appear differently depending on the angle at which you look through the prism…different perspectives on the same thing.

    following atticus…getting a fresh perspective

    blue eyes crying in the rain…remembering what he had, but realizing that he can’t go back…”only memories remain”

    asking jerold panas… A book about asking for money/donations…”You have to know your cause, of course, and be committed to it. But, as important, you have to know how to get the appointment, how to present your case, how to read your donors words, how to handle objections, how to phrase your request, and even what behaviors to avoid.”…I think this is more about BP figuring out how to ask out of the BRAND…

    swinging with the finkels…BP/AJ tried to reignite passion

    problem…it didn’t work

    breaking down the bible… getting back to basics/fundamentals…back to the faith/morals he had growing up?

    jesus hopped the A train… This is a truth-telling, cage-rattling play about faith, justice and diminishing options in an American prison…metaphor for his life with AJ

    bring back my bonnie to me… Song refers to Prince Charles Edward Stuart, otherwise known as Bonnie Prince Charlie…I think BP wants his looks back

    xtranormal app!!!!!…a way to tell your story the way you want to.

  23. louisianagurl said on March 26th, 2012 at 4:17 pm

    I think you have about summed it up Kate. It reminds me of that old phrase, “Poor little rich girl”. They got the fame, wealth, positions in life they so craved, but only after they reached the pinnacle did they discover the true cost. “They” are no more, all that remains is Tomb Raider, Benjamin Button, and Rachael Green. Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston no longer exist. @Kate:

    I also think this is Brad, lamenting his current situation. He looks like he’s been through hell. I’m sure he thinks back at how much easier his life used to be, before he met joLIE…and how much stress and bullshit she has piled on his shoulders. Living with a nutjob is debilitating :( He might think he’s doing a good job, keeping the dam from bursting…like the little dutch boy, but it’s to no avail.

    Bonnie was known as The Pretender. I can not really see Brafg getting back to the foundation he grew up with, he seemd to resent all things morally good. I agree they did do the open relationship as a last option, but only for the kids. These two have been living seperate for a long time. I think he dreads giving up his kids. I know many do not agree, but they I think are why he has held on so long, more than any other single reason.

    “resent all things morally good”, that is a good expression. First of all I think of AJ but she has influenced BP for all she is worth. I believe leaving all your moral opinions behind you causes a lot of stress. Especially if you are driven by someone and it doesn´t come out of free will.

    The photo is just really reflective of a couple with no intimacy. We have always know they had other partners so I am not sure why this matters at this point, unless Ian id just summing it all up.Trie to stay on top, in control for a long time Brad, triangle not as it appears, has come full circle with Jen as a friend, (book discription) sad because of what life has become and he knows the only release from it will be after death, (song lyrics) asking for advice on image, MIR, other Humanitarian, this seems out of order to me to then say he tried to fix his relationship by swinging, he has not tried to fix anything with Jolie in years, breaking it all down to try and understand, he and Angie are both trapped, living seperate like prisoners, he is the pretender, and releasing the family film he wants us all to see…. Ok, now, there has to be more than that, because honestly, we know all of this and have for a year now..so, who else could this be about?

    I struggled with the bible one… i agree that it seems that he has turned his back on the religion of his youth…I am thinking this might be another metaphor. If you break down the bible, you do get different books…or accounts of Jesus’ life (new testament) told by many different people, so maybe another nod to different accounts or perspectives on BP’s life at different times…some being open to interpretation

    When I looked at the pictures of him returning to L.A. from NOLA, it looked like a picture of a broken man, that was out for a bender for days on end and just crawled out from under a rock!. He was dishevled/filthy looking, ripped clothing, and seem that he had the world on his shoulders…. Just a week or so before, he was cleaned up a bit, and was at the MIR Gala. Did something happen right after that? Jolie flew back to L.A. by herself, then quickly flew out with Shiloh and Zahara (apparently Brads fav 2 children) and went to Amsterdam.

If that’s the message that Ian is trying to convey then they’re stuck for a reason. I’ve always believed the public end of the Brand could unleash some information they’d rather keep hidden. So they’re going to hang out like this forever and be miserable just to make sure their images are intact? It’s the same stuff we’ve guess over again. There’s got to be something more to this.

    That makes sense. Ian said BP dumpef Kitty, and then one more show, then goodbye,so this is possibly the stages he went through recently, became dysfunctional, erectile or otherwise, while trying to maintain this Brand, image prism, triangle, different perspectives, or just with them, following atticus, he has taken this adventure and came to a place because of someone or on his own and now has a new perspective. He is sad how things have turnec out and knows there is no going back but memories never fade, he asked for help , knows he can not walk away without someone guiding him, he tried everything he could to keep Brange together, did not work, now looking for a deeper meaning, options are vanishing as he he finds himself imprisoned by this Brand, with her, publicly, he wants his life back, bonnie dreamed his bonnie was deas, then alive again, finding a way to tell the story of their split so that is possible….so the real riddle is, what is that going to be? lol

    I read some of the posts before looking at this. Great job all.

    Staying erect….standing tall against adversity (AJ)
    for a long time…
    image prism… changes appearance of an image; prism causes a refraction or change of direction
    — BP been planning the change in this relationship for a long time, despite adversity from AJ

    following atticus…story of love, loss, and the resilience of spirit; followed Atticus as Atticus seemed to know what he needed. Also in the Jen & Justin post.
    — BP trying to copy Jen’s ability to bounce back after they split (from a PR perspective)

    blue eyes crying in the rain…per wiki, last song Elvis sang before his death
    asking jerold panas…philanthropy fundraising…MIR gala in NOLA
    — MIR gala was last swan song before death of “The Brand”

    swinging with the finkels…couple who meet as students, marry and then decide, 10 years later, that things need sprucing up a bit. The question is whether they should try swinging, sex toys or have children.
    problem…it didn’t work
    — Couple in the movie tried swinging but it didn’t work, Brangelina tried swinging, sex toys and having kids and it didn’t work. (or having more kids, the twins, post-2007, and it didn’t work)

    breaking down the bible… looking for deeper understanding
    jesus hopped the A train… As they await the next move of the justice system, they wrangle over questions of truth, guilt, innocence, the existence of God, the possibility and validity of forgiveness and the price you pay for your beliefs. It asks all the big questions
    — BP looking reflecting on what they’ve done creating The Brand and where he is in life

    bring back my bonnie to me… “Bonnie” is a Scottish term for attractive.
    xtranormal app!!!!!… create animation videos by scripting the dialog and choosing from a menu of camera angles and predesigned characters and scenes.
    — He’s written the script for the next chapter, the After Brangelina chapter and he’ll clean himself up and get his looks back

I think Brad wants his okd life back, and part of the stategy to get it is going to be, redemption, to what extent he takes that remains to be seen. He is breaking down the Bible for a reason, to be free, redeemed, to walk away, and that story will not be anywhere near the truth as to why, then it never is. Maybe IAN WILL COME CHAT..HELLO…LOL :)

    @iwasanon:
    I like what you wrote, but I think erect has to do with building an image. Erect means to construct, set in an upright position, raise, assemble. So taking:

    “Staying erect…for a long time…image prism” can read: “the varied images they constructed/assembled lasted for a long time” then: …was a great adventure…but now lost love

    “breaking down the Bible” – a step by step strategy for deeper understanding – I think “Bible” may refer to their “religion” which has been, imo, themselves and what they created (the Brand)…it didn’t work and now they realize they are two prisoners of what they have created, caught between reality and a “computer (media)” generated image.

    @rushdog:

    Funny, the verb erect is to construct/build and the adjective is upright/straight. I think we’ve arrived at an almost similar point through different paths.

    I was thinking standing erect as in human evolution, standing straight or upright. From there I thought of standing tall. Someone usually stands tall in the face of adversity. Doesn’t give up, keeps at it especially when first faced with failure. If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.
    So in relation to him and AJ, he’s tried many times to split and structure a deal but he kept failing because of her push back but now it looks like he’s finally there.

    I think I’d refine this slightly to clarify that the change in the relationship is the change in the image of the relationship. We already know the relationship has been dead for a long time but not the image of it which is The Brand.

    Staying erect….standing tall against adversity (AJ)
    for a long time…
    image prism… changes appearance of an image; prism causes a refraction or change of direction
    — BP been planning the change in this relationship or the change in the image of this relationship for a very long time. He’s tried and failed many times but he is finally at that place, despite the trouble she has repeatedly caused him.

    I don’t have much to add but posters have been asking about Jen/Jus. Ian is usually good about providing info on topics (if he has it) that posters request.

    In general:
    Staying Erect (for a long time): Dysfunctional, performance anxiety, related sexually or related to life in general, or trying to stand tall.
    Image Prism: Image distorted, image triangle, image depends on the application, a different angle for the image.
    Following Atticus: Extraordinary friendship, loyalty, “I feel comfortable letting him lead…my only job is to follow”, unlikely pair, a man’s transformation, self-discovery.
    Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain: Knew last time he saw her it would be the end.
    Asking Jerald Panas: Philanthropy, aim high, Bible of fundraising, asking for help (monetary?)
    Swinging with the Finkels: Everyday life lacks fun, British comedy, consensual affair., bad reviews.
    Breaking Down the Bible: Looking for deeper understanding, many books of the Bible, inconsistencies and repetition, examining it book by book or chapter by chapter.
    Jesus Hopped the A Train: Theatrical production, prison, open-ended play of ideas; arguments about guilt, innocence and higher power.
    Bring Back my Bonnie to me: Touted as a children’s song, Scottish; bonnie refers to someone fair or attractive, not necessarily male or female; missing someone.
    Xtranormal AP: stories typed to make movies, revolutionary approach to movie making,

    The only other thing is at the bottom of the pic it says Grafikerturk.com. Can’t really find much about that – just means graphic Turk. Can’t find origin of pic.

    A little off topic, but I just saw Tree of Life, and realized well and truly one irrefutable fact: Brad Pitt can’t act! He speaks in a perpetual monotone, no matter what film he’s in. For anyone who hasn’t suffered through this meandering mess of a movie, he portrays a tough, emotionally inflexible father raising three sons with his dreamy, careworn wife. Pitt jutts his jaw out, squints, and rests his hands on his hips. There is someting deeply unconvincing about Pitt in the film, and in real life. There’s a lot of practicing in front of mirror for him, too, I believe. Perhaps he and Angelina are suited to each other after all for this reason. I wonder what the real Brad Pitt looks and sounds like?

  75. rushdog said on March 27th, 2012 at 8:26 am

    I think Ian is giving us an update. IMO one of his sources has always connected to Pitt. And I think the Bible reference doesn’t mean anyone has found religion but has simply realized the religions have been The Brand and narcissm and all that comes with it. Stuck sentence by sentence, word for word by what that “religion”brought them.

    Following atticus has to be him – 48 years of peaks and valleys (I don’t see how this can be Jen) who is now crying over lost love(s) and wanting to return to what once was (his bonnie).

    The body of the clue is bookended by image: a multi-faceted image that was maintained for a long time and one that via movie promotion has blurred reality and what has been “computer” (media and PR) generated.

    Jesus hopped the A train is stuck inside the bookends (image) – hs is a prisoner (Angel who lost his best friend [Jen]) who is incarcerated w/Lucius (a serial killer who found her god (religion – narcissism – which killed 8 people [2 adults/6 children] = their family)

    They tried to sustain the relationship/image (swining w/the finkles) but their philanthropy/fundraising (which is themselves/The Brand) can’t be sustained.

    On the photo which is two people with their backs to each other. They’re not together, have turned their backs. Scroll is “erect1″ which I would assume is the plan to contruct/assemble a new image.

    GrafikerTurk.com – is a domain with 0 tracking = 0 links, 0 followers, 0 social media – nothing, nothing…

    IMO Ian’s given us an update on where BP is at right now. Nothing is going on between the couple or anywhere else. His next film doesn’t open until September (I believe). Nothing…

    This is really sad if what we think, generally speaking, has played itself out. Equally sad is that most of us here probably saw this coming from the beginning of their relationship. I did way back in ‘05 even though I didn’t start watching closely until much later. The HW cliche…they played right into it only in the extreme and with six innocents. At the beginning someone in my family asked how long we all thought they would last. I said 3-5 years maybe longer because of the children. I think they were done by ‘09 so yeah I was right in the ballpark except I don’t think it was the children that kept them going but the image/the Brand. I think they are both their own worse enemy.

    Reading these clues and along with the picture, I think Ian is trying to tell us that Brad Pitt is impotent.

    Not in a sexual way, but with life itself. He, at one point was at an all time HIGH, in his career, his image, and and in his life. Now, not so much. His career has been dead panned, since he can’t either get a high profitable movie, his image is taking a beating, by proxy with Jolie, all those kids, he thought would be easy being a “daddy” and come to find out it is hard having all that responsibility, also living with someone with mental problems such as Jolie, and even more so, so many people are counting on him, so many people he has to support financially, and with NO income coming in, he has had to resort to doing things that HE knows is immoral….but he has no choice, he’s been sucked in, and can’t find a way out….he has made a deal with the devil, and that goes against his upbringing…..he’s having internal fights with it all…..he is literally STUCK, financially, professionally, personally and morally. I won’t be surprised if all this stress that he is under, doesn’t cause him to have a heart attack or a stroke, esp with that stress of an impending lawsuit….that he probably will be dragged into court and have to be deposed as a witness. I believe he is clinically depressed, and is self medicating himself with booze and drugs….just to get through his everyday life…those pictures of him returning to L.A. from NOLA, have haunted me, looks to me like a broken man…impotent…no life to him anymore…..

    I’m with you on this…as I’ve said a few times: I hope he gets out alive. Just having six kids would be stressful enough, I don’t think having a nannie for each kid is really the best idea either, imo it just adds to the stress of too many people around. It’s stressful for the kids too, when there’s too many people around WHO do they listen to? Too many people are depending on him, and that’s exactly the way joLIE wanted it…so he can’t just leave her…he will have to leave ALL the people/kids she has gathered for him to support. Even if all this other stuff wasn’t going on…just living with a person with who is mentally unstable is enough to stress anyone out…even BBT had to get away from her antics, and he actually understands/appreciates being different.

    O blow ye winds over the ocean,
    O blow ye winds over the sea.

    Last night as I lay on my pillow,
    I dreamed that my Bonnie was dead.

    Repeat chorus

    The winds have blown over the ocean,

    The winds have blown over the ocean,
    And brought back my Bonnie to me.

    I lit a small match to assist her,
    O Bring back my Bonnie to me.

    Last night as I lay on my pillow,
    Last night as I lay on my bed,
    I stuck my feet out of the window,
    In the morning the neighbors were dead.

    Repeat chorus

    My mother makes beer in the bathtub,
    My father makes synthetic gin,
    My sister makes fudge for a quarter,
    Wouldja believe how the money rolls in?

    Repeat chorus

    My mother, she drowned in the bathtub,
    My father, he died from his gin,
    My sister choked on her chocolate,
    My stars, what a fix I am in.

    Repeat chorus

    I tried making beer in the bathtub,

    I think he would like his old life back, and I don’t mean that he doesn’t love the children, but rather there was a simplicity to that life and the way he moved through the world back then. At least it appears that way. Yeah, I think he and Jen were a brand, but before brands were the thing and certainly not The Brand. It’s a shame the children are connected to it.

    It seems we’ve got more than the general idea of this puzzle piece, even though some of us may disagree on the specifics.

He just finished filming WWZ. He’s worked for the past two years. He’s taking some time off. And by the by, he was coming back from France, not NOLA. He was checking on Miraval.

    And rushdog, yeah, Brad, you listen to her, you hear her! ROTFLMAO!

    You are right about one thing, the clue has absolutely nothing to do with his career. Brad has no problems there, he is well connected and well liked by his peers, and Angelina is as well in certain arenas. All the assumptions that either of them are desperate to land a part is just a reflection of what some want to believe, it is not a reflection of the truth. Just as when some do not like another star they will make blanket statements about them that have zero truth in them, as they cash their million dollar checks. You can not have hate for a star and be unbiased, fan or not. You can not be a star struck fan and be unbiased. It is what it is with actors, regardless of what other endeavors they choose to take up to help their image. jmo

    Ian does not make these clues all that complicated. Sometimes if they are over analyzed they become something they are not and take on a life of their own, but you coming here and making your accusations will not change the meaning of them. ;)

Has brad found god again while MIR ? the escape is planned, Someone speaking on their behalf?

    I read that, it started out well, but as it went along became repetitive. I wondered if the person who was writing it had become emotional. It almost sounded as if they had lost their thought process at times. Some valid points were made, and some that should have been left out. jmo , but you can only drag up a person’s past from 15 years ago so many times, and how relevant is it today? Jolie has as much or more of that behavior still present in her life and some have written about it. The more recent behavior holds more weight since it affects her status now, and I would think more people would be more concerned about her ties to the all organizations if they were aware of her more recent vices.

    How is it that more and more people are calling her out , straight up on the internet, every week there is someone new, and yet the bloggers who are the most well known are silent?

    Ted C is still insisting she is Saint Angie and can not go anywhere without getting her picture taken. CDAN has been a little bit more vocal straight up referencing her Heroin addiction, but in jest, and IAN has not touched this openly in about a year now except for in these blind riddles. I throw Ian into the group because I know everyone else will, but I understand why he does it, but for the benefit or argument..

    1- they are worried about being sued
    2- they want to socialize with them at parties (Hey Ted)
    3- they are sick of them and just do not care anymore
    4-they know if you wait long enough they will expose themselves (Hey Charlie) so why bother?
    5-they know they can expose them, but why do it for free, is it worth the migraine that comes with it?
    6-they are paid to always say they are the most powerful couple in Hollywood (Hello AJ Hammer)

    The list is much longer. So, why bother right, and in the end, do that many people outside of a few people on this blog or another one here or there honestly care?

    I think that is the question they probably ask themselves over and over..who really cares?

    Hi Sparklin how are you? Do you remember when they did showcased Angelina for his big Premier of TOL? He knew they had so much on the line for that film . When there was a big boo from the audience it was mostly due initially because where it was shown would not be open to the idea of an afterlife. Brad had played to middle American all the way up to that point, family man, I love her, we may have to get married, etc, he was playing his role up in the film, to a point. I grew up like that,I understand what it is like, do you believe in God, and what did he say, not NO NO NO like he did when he promote another film, he was “well I understand why some do blah blah ” , and then it flopped. He interpreted that to mean that the film needed to be marketed as a no faith based film to bring people in, because TM had already put it out as his spiritual adventure. He waa waa everywhere to convince people to see it, that he does not believe in God, and it is not about that, but Evolution. Well that worked with the critics. One down.

    Now , Moneyball, he has to switch gears again when it looked like he needed the conservative voters , old and white. Isn’t that what they said? So again we hear, we are getting married, maybe another baby, I love her, she is the best mother, I love the kids, they love baseball, I don’t smoke pot anymore, and for awhile that worked, he began to win some awards, but not the one he wanted, and by the time the votes were in he knew that. He threw it all in, over done. Game over, what does he really believe. He has no idea what he really believes. Poor guy can not even come out and say he is a atheist , no he says he is 20 percent agnostic and 80 percent atheist. huh? He needs to look those definitions. Brad is not an atheist because if he was , he would say so, just as one who does believe has no problem saying so. He is lost in between, so it would not surprise me at all if he was not going through those 100 books of faith he gave Jolie trying to find something, anything that fits . All the money, the fame, and the power, and drugs,will not make him happy, maybe he has figured that out. shruggs. Nice to see you.

    what a breath of fresh air thank you! Is very entertaining reading the many assumptions people draw from Ians non-sensical posts but they are just that. Apparently you ‘have to be in the know’ to know what he’s chatting about so I’m told! My interpretation of this is read something into absolutely nothing. He just seems to chat nonsense but I enjoy reading it and all the comments and the ’supposed’ true meanings of what it is all about. I think whatever becomes of Brange we will probably learn more from mainstrean media than here but Ian will declare he had said this all along and declare any meaning to his posts but they are that batty you could make them fit anything. Thanks for the entertainment everybody xxx

    “Blue eyes crying in the rain” refers to Pitt’s performance art, the stalker poem which he recites standing in the rain dressed only on underwear and white socks. In the end he repetitively shoots off a water pistol in emulation of ejaculation. Sorry, I can’t find the text of the poem anywhere. PA and UTC both should have a look at it if they can find it.

    Hey all, havn’t been here in awhile. I just started reading these comments, so I don’t know what all has been said, but I agree with Bob here about BP longing for old life with AJ in the beginning of their relationship. Also, although ‘bring back my bonnie to me’ is a folk song, this clue reminds me of the movie ‘Original Sin’ in which AJ starred with Antonio Banderas as her character was named Bonnie. In this movie AB’s character marries a woman who turns out to be a fraud. She is shady and deceived him. Despite this, he follows after her even when he learns the truth. He basically gives up his respectable life for her. Sorry to spoil plot if you were planning to see the movie, tee hee, but it is kind of like BP and AJ, in a more dramatic fashion ofcourse. I think he lost credability in Hollywood when he took up with her, but may still long for the days when everything was still new and exciting with them and AJ was beatiful and healthy looking back then.

    As ususal, your interpretations shed light on the clues Rush. When you mentioned the clue “asking jerold panas” being about philanthropic fundraising made me think about a thread I read over at FF. Apparently, AJ’s old philanthropic advisor, Trevor Neilson, came out and said AJ’s motive for philantropy was to improve her image in the public eye (bro kissing, BBT antics, etc.). Those were not his exact words, ofcourse, but I am sure you guys heard about it. Per FF posters, there was some kind of dispute between Neilson and Jolie and he spilled the beans about this, as if we didn’t already know her motives. This clue could mean BP and AJ have a new consultant about charible works to overcome this latest embarassment and to still keep up the image of being saints who save the world. Although only casual observers and loons still belive that now.

    The triangle was unique. I don’t think any man has left his wife for a co-star with whom he had an on-set affair and then engaged in a massive smear campaign against her to make her look like a selfish woman who would not give him children because her career came first. The loons continue that campaign to this day. Then he proceeded to collect an army of children to justify his adultery. Without the children, interest in them would not have reached the level it did. And I doubt they will do what’s best for their children. Those kids have been working for them since they were born/acquired. The twins alone earned $14M just by being born. Brad will eventually get a lifetime achievement award when he gets old, the pity oscar.

And of cource we will be updated every week witch of them has the children. The week Angelina has them we will be overloaded with pics of her carrying a lot of paper bags and holding the twins hands at the same time. She will be busy the whole week arranging photo op´s to show us how hard it is to be a single mother. Brad will probably not arrange any photo op´s. He leave the children to the nannies and goes out enjoying himself the best he can.

The tabloid cycle is always the same as well, Spring, Fall, Winter , Summer, all follow the pattern of this, break up, wedding, break up, wedding. It does not matter how often he goes to Miraval, they are not together the way their fans believe them to be, nor are many other couples in the industry. I would love for IAN to do a book on that, the fake long term relationships in the movie and music industry and why they did it / do it.

    @Evil Kitty:
    I don’t know what the clue “asking jerald panas”means but he’s a philanthropy fundraising advice person. I think it may either have to do with the recent MIR fundraiser or their true philanthropy which imo is themselves.

    I’ve read the New Yorker article about Neilson which is worth the read if anyone has access to it. The subject of celebrity humanitarianism interests me and I believe the m.o. of some of the celebs in humanitarian endeavors is problematic. I don’t believe the end justifies the means.

    The article is about TN, not Jolie & Pitt, and brings up a number of celebs names including Jolie. It’s no wonder Neilson and Jolie hooked up, two narcissistic peas in a pod. He’s as controversal in philathropy circles as Jolie is in her public life. He’s an ‘end justifies the means’ person, as long as somewhere along the line someone unfortunate gets help in some way, the rest doesn’t matter. Who cares if the celeb drawing attention to the plight gains from it or a poor choice causes a problem for a philanthropic project, doesn’t matter. That’s what he says, he’s right, the end. So it’s no wonder he and Jolie connected and then it ended. Two narcissists vying for control and attention. And Jolie and her handlers (probably primarily Geyer) appear too controling of her image (the perception of no press manipulation because she has no publicist) to let someone like Neilson wrestle any piece of control into his own hands.

    I don’t think Neilson really spilled the beans about Jolie’s motive for engaging in humanitarian work, but rather seem to confirm information that is already out there. To be fair Neilson does make that statement but goes on to say that Jolie didn’t improve her image and leave never to be seen again. Rather she continued to do humanitarian work long after improvement to her image. It’s hard not to agree with that statement because she remains involved in humanitarian endeavors. Although, I would say it’s easy to make an argument that the public part of her work serves as a very useful PR tool when she needs to redirect public attention away from negative press or as a tool to keep marketing HER brand. There are quite a number of UN and non-UN trips in recent years that coincide directly w/negative press and movie promotion. It’s interesting that back around ‘06-’08 Jolie & Pitt seemed to be on about a humanitarian PR cycle about once every two months or so, which included trips and donation announcements. That seemed to stop at one point, maybe late ‘08 or so. I’m wondering if that’s because TN was the push behind that PR and when TN and AJ parted that regular PR ended. It doesn’t seem quite as routine anymore.

    I would also expect that another reason she remains involved is to make her feel better about herself and I have no criticism of that. That’s speculation on my part, but I think she had shit in her childhood thanks to her father and that’s the core of what ails her, everything else is a symptom including whatever the true nature of the relationship with her brother.

    OK I’m rambling again. There’s my celeb analysis of the day! Heading out with my daughter for a while!

    @rushdog:

    Wow, thanks for the reply and info. rush. Trevor Neilson seems like an interesting charactor unto himself. Yes, it’s true, other celebs have engaged in charitable endeavors to help their image as well as the cause. In Ian’s book on Brangelina he mentions how TN helped Bill Gates to improve his image to appear more generous. However, Jolie and Pitt took this to a whole new level IMO. IDK, but since that article came you would think other celebs would not want to be associated with TN, or at least keep it on the downlow as it may cast suspicion of their true motives for philantropy. I also noticed that the Brange has been more lowkey in donations recently. We used to see them every week it seems, on JJ, giving money to this or that charity with pics of them and their kids. That seems to have slowed down and it’s mainly her pics of UN work or recently his MIR thing. Maybe the clue means they are moving toward donations from others rather than their own funds. Maybe Shiloh and twin money has dried up, tee hee. As for Ang’s personal intentions, from what I’ve read, I think there is a part of her that really wants to help people, especially children, but she doesn’t honestly see how her actions are perceived by others. It’s like you said, she and TN believe the end justifies the means. As for her past, from what I’ve read, I think Jon really did try to be a good parent to his kids, but Marcheleine tried to influence her kids to think he was the devil and she the angel and to a certain extent, she suceeded. I still think JV is basically a good guy who made mistakes in life, ofcourse, maybe not as I don’t know him personally so I may be wrong. Now I am rambling, tee hee, so will go see you all later.

    Hope everyone has a good weekend. Need to check out FF and the other celeb sites to see what other escandalos are happening. :)

    I was just reading at Blind Gossip about an A list actress who has been in the closet for 20 years and had a fake marriage. The popular guess is Sandra Bullock though some guessed Renee Z. I think it’s Sandra but whoever it is it’s really a shame that she has to hide who she really is. I think if Ian did a weekly Couples Who Fake It he could keep it going for years.

    Some may ask why do stars allow themselves to be owned — the answer to that is “stars want success, so when they get involve with these companies, they are only looking for major success that the company says it will provide to them.

    Thus the truth of the matter is that the stars “sell their souls to the devil’ And, once the star has had enough of being told what do and when to do it by these companies — the star will find it very difficult to flee the scene without either losing their lives, their careers and/or their reputations being thorougly destroyed.

    Are you living in the 50’s? when studios did actually set couples up for an image, because stars in the day were under contract by the studios and they wanted to protect their investment..That’s not the case today and hasn’t been in over 30 years. There ’s been so many divorces and break-ups over the past few years.
    JLO / Marc Anthony, Ryan Reynolds/ Scarlett Jo, Courtney Cox/ David Arquette, Demi/ Ashton, Heidi/ Seal, Katy Perry/Russell Brand, Eva Longoria/Tony Parker.
    People don’t care anymore since its a reflection of the 50% divorce rate in the US. Do they generate more headlines if two good looking stars hook up ? Sure it does i.e. Blake Lively/Leo D. But, not one of those couples felt a need to stay together (with children) if it’s not working. They are not owned by the studios.

    When you make a blanket statement that Mega stars are owned by companies then you should back-up your statement with a source. Which companies and Mega-stars you are referring to? One would assume that you are talking about studios since no Mega stars in the film industry does any commercials in the US so they aren’t tied to a certain image. The only Non-Actor Mega-Star that I can think of that lost endorsement deals due his tainted image is Tiger Woods.

    Has anyone seen this article?

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2123432/Brad-Pitt-Younger—boy-blond-moptop-Kickapoo-High.html

    Look at Brad when he was a child. I know the point of this article is to show how much Shiloh looks like him, but what
    struck me is that he looks so feminine. In one photo, 3rd one down at the age 12, he appears to wear lipstick and we have all
    seen the photos of Brad over the years in a dress.

    Ian did a series of articles when he was writing his book that suggested that his relationships with all the women were not really
    as they appeared, not saying they were beards, but ,maybe not exactly as they were marketed. CDAN released a blind saying Brad
    and Jen did not have sex until they were married. (I took that to mean they were having sex but stopped once they became engaged and
    did not again until they were married, however..) a blind posted today is pretty mindblowing, could this be Brad? He was very proud of his chiseled body
    for Fight Club, and begged the Director of Troy to let him do the scene nude for Troy..trying to prove something. Angie keeps on with the manly man,statements and
    then of course we have them dressing Shiloh like a boy. Sure would explain some things , wouldn’t it, all that congential sadness.

    From the blind-

    He was a rather chubby, round-faced child, and he could have easily passed for either gender. He liked to wear his hair long, like a girl, but his parents kept cutting his hair shorter and shorter until he looked like a boy. He was very curious about girl things. He asked for toys like dolls, and he wanted to wear dresses. However, his parents would never purchase them for him for fear that others would ridicule him. They always dressed him in boy’s clothing. He didn’t want to climb trees or get dirty. He was athletic, but never played typically masculine sports like baseball.

    From The Daily Mail Today-

    Wingo, who lived opposite Pitt in Springfield, Missouri, said last night: ‘We rode bikes, we would skateboard and play basketball and baseball together. He always had a competitive spirit. He and I hung out together but I was the red-haired kid and he was the blond, blue-eyed one and handsome even back then. As we got older and we were in competition for girls, I didn’t stand a chance.’

All the guesses showed up, except his name, until now, lol , they held those. Pretty obvious.

    @Up the Coast:
    It could be an April Fools Joke, because they do that every year, this would be a very poor excuse of one to do and very bad taste really, completely tasteless, that said back in 09, Ian had a riddle,

    here are the clues and some ideas from various posters.

    Southern Baptist sod- sodomite-drunk
    …golden boy bo-peep-cross dresser-
    …all that glitters is not gold-not as things appear to be
    -…xena the warrior princess-she looked like a woman but was a man
    …baracuda babe…-she went after Brad ? (knowing he was a guy dressed up as a chick at a party ) or he went after her
    mixed signals-girl said no, (or now Brad said no)
    …random hookup-they hooked up
    …sophomore frat peep show-party
    …large gray area-things unclear
    …shot of vodka…drinking-
    shots of absinthe-drunk mind fuzzy-“shots of absinthe” – this was the drink of choice back in 19th century Paris when Toulous Lutrec (my spelling is wrong) painted all those famous pictures – he was deformed physically but was still quite a hit with the ladies – anyway, it seems that this drink (which has the ability to cause blackouts) has returned to popularity in the US. Do any of the people that we are discussing favor this particular drink?
    …break the ice-gets down, getting hit
    …lifted skirt and kept tugging- she lifts the skirt, she keeps tugging on his pants, while he finds out…
    …don’t be upset- she is a he
    …carnal knowledge-the Baracuda rapes Brad
    …no consent-Brad had said no…

    don’t be upset…finds a penis
    carnal knowledge…obvious
    no consent…rape
    Mike Tyson style…rape maybe beats him too
    no Phil Spector…not murder
    brevity is the soul of wit…the sex was over very quickly
    like Thelma&Louise…ran away like Thelma & Louise did af
    ter the rape
    like Dallas Randy…
    stumbled drunk…obvious
    terrified…obvious
    discounted the story…said the rape didn’t happen
    boarders in the white Missouri bungalow…the guy was poor

    no sexual healing…is not fulfilled by the sex
    more like sexual humiliation…he is very embarrassed
    better fed…Brad’s family has more money than the rape victim’s
    but emotionally deprived…
    makeshift arrangement…Brad hightails it out of town
    refused to budge an inch…Brad still denying it happened
    more Mike Tyson wannabe…acts tough but is not
    Robin Gave in…had sex with her
    banged the head of the class…above
    banged cutting class…Jill Schoelen from The Love Boat
    too young to die…Juliette Lewis

    Kalifornia…above
    lucky number Seven…Gwyneth
    comparisons are odorous…Brad smells or the rumors that Jen is just a rebound from Gwyneth
    too much of a good thing…Jen
    Mr. and Mrs. Slut…Angie
    consanguineous…
    cruelhearted…
    dexterously…
    over-ripened…
    rumination…
    dog will have his day!…-“every dog will have his day” seems to be a quote from Hamlet and means that we all have our fears and can not run away from them and must face them. Fate shows Hamlet that he must do what he promised to do and “throughout the play Shakespears displayed that trying to escape your fate is futile’ because it is inevitable – sooner or later you face it or it consumes you. Am I overreaching again? And who is the “dog” here? Mr. Pitt?

    Back when we worked on this we thought 1- Brad had been raped at a frat party when he was dressed as a girl by a guy, or Brad had raped someone , a girl at a frat party, but it could just as easily and makes more sense that he was humiliated, caught up in the moment.

    I thought about Aprils Fools, because last year they did that stupid one with Brange and involved Jen, but then I asked myself, would anyone with a conscience really put something like this out there as a joke?

    Honestly? Who jokes about a intersex situation? That would be very very low of them to do that.

    @Guest2:
    I understand what you are saying. I went to Blindgossip to see what there Aprils Fools was this year, and this was the blind, and thought, no possible way . The last two were obvious/ Two years ago was about two couples splitting, mega stars, and the answer was Brad and George and Angie and Jen. Last year was even more ridiculous, three gay couples will come out with their wives by their side, and the interviews the wives gave were laughable. Not possible to take it serious. I can not imagine how anyone could sit down and write a joke about a person born intersex, and write it to read as though it is Brad Pitt, because it does. Now there are a few people desperately trying to say, oh look, his friend said he did play baseball so it can not be him. The fact the article comes out the day before the blind is posted only makes it more suspect that it is him, not the other way around. Then the nude photos. Posters jumping n about seeing those, how he looked, you can not fake it. I saw those, they are grainy, and taken from a distance, and they are still online today, and yet Brad has been able to pull every photo off from his back yard that was taken when the twins were born, but not the ones of him nude. I have wondered about those, lawsuit and all. True though, he does not look intersex to me, but the blind is wiritten so that 90 percent of all guesses were him.

    If this is a joke, BG is going to have some very unhappy posters, because they already have some that are uncomfortable with it. Imagine having to make this decision for your child, having to guide them through life and watch them struggle, how does one joke about that?

I do think the ground work is being laid for BP to leave AJ. She has been holding this over his head – and now she really can’t use this against him because now everyone knows, this was “just a joke”

    They can not get sued now. It does ring a bit shallow of them to say it is a joke and to place his photo there, doesn’t it? A story like that is one that would need to be leaked with a bit of dignity, considering there is a long list of famous intersex people over the decades, and ones that were willing to stand up for others facing the difficulties that come with being born with the challenges . CDAN can say some of his stories are fiction and does, that protects him, and BG can say hey ,ha ha April Fools, but there are some things that are off limits, and this one of them. It does not matter if it is true or not, for Brad , because it is true for someone out there, someone’s child, brother, sister, friend, loved one. Last time I will visit that site.

    What bothers me about this story on Brad is the way Angie manipulated Shiloh from birth into being preceived as a boy. In the first photo of Shiloh as a newborn she was in blue onesey…then she began wearing her brother’s clothes, then came the announcement she wished to be called “John”…..This all began when Shiloh was too young to identify with her clothing, so why did Angie do this? Could this “fake” blind be why? A leash on Brad? A warning? Just asking…..and pondering the facts.@joanne:

This is just the sort of Warning To Bad Brad that Angie would do. To do it from the start with infant Shiloh makes sense to a psychopath, they like to start it off immediately, and slowly so that by the time you realize you are a fly in their web it’s too late.

    i didnt get the humour of it either Kate! found it interesting to read, as its an unusual and sometimes sad occurance to both the person and the family. Odd that one really *is still baffled*

    So ref this clue. — This couple (brad and Ang) have the financial luxury to remain a couple and co parent for their kids for as long as they wish, or the kids need.
    Many celebs split and decide “okay time to move on” and they still are able to co parent their kids, both civily and supportingly.

    So one begs the question – why stay together if you didnt want to? what reason would make you “save face” in public? IT would HAVE to be financial!
    or
    Love!

    There is still a good chance that they are sticking with this for the kids, kids are truly an integral cog to the machine, and they are most of the time the glue that every family needs. Many couples split up and then get back together because the kids remind them that they were made through love.

    That’s true…but most couples kids don’t come with an extra adult to feed/pay/house (their own private nanny). Neither one of these, so called “parents” are able to take care of these children alone, without two van loads of hired help. joLIE set it up this way, on purpose. She wanted to make sure that they could never “split up” the same way many couples do, everyday. These people aren’t a family, the way we all think of a family….they are all separate entities.

If there is indeed investors to the product, then we can bet our sweet butts that theres an image conscious consultancy ensuring that this image stays intact for the product that they intend on delivering. 100% manufactured and delivered to meet the “voice of the customer” or “give the public what they want”

    It’s just the evolution of a new blog site. When they first begin they are looking for their base audience in order to give them what they want so they can grow, enlarge and become financially profitable…if that’s their main agenda of course. BOHO will find it’s neiche’ of anti’s and Jolie lurvers, and will do fine as long as Brangelina remains relevant, but for those of us who prefer dialog with respect and dignity toward others, it’s not some place we’d want to go. Different strokes for different folks, and at least now we know what sort they are. :-) @Guest2:

    Hmmm even gumbi can’t find the stretch in that one WTF. Speculating on clues and trying to solve riddles, while being objective, is a bit different from personally attacking someone. Surely you can see that, can’t you?

    One thing I’ve always found about this site, (and I’ve mainly lurked) is that people speak to each other like they’re sitting across the table from each other enjoying a glass of wine. That’s what makes it so special. And with the clues and riddles, it makes it sort of like a scavenger hunt. It’s very odd, but in a good way. It seems as if the internet has become a bastion of ugliness, where people hide behind their computers and hurt and cause pain to others. Practically every site I visit these days are filled with anonymous angry people being mean. This site is just so different from that. As I said, people here for the most part, behave in a way they would behave if they were face to face with you.

    Maybe that’s why you’ve never found a kin-ship on this site, and why you made the comment above. Maybe you really can’t see the difference. Based on many of your previous posts, maybe you would be much happier on a site like Bohomoth, or any other site where the posters aren’t so intimate and supportive. Where there’s less of a community feel and more of a free for all.

    I’ll read wherever and whatever I want and say what I damn well please about it. That blogger was being nasty for no particular reason about jen (caneston, whatever that means) and she even brought her name into a story (an idiotic one) about cameron diaz. Maybe she needs to use certain names to get people to come to her site and that’s her prerogative. It’s her site and she can write whatever she wants. I didn’t say anything there because I only post comments here and I don’t care to engage a blogger who has a different opinion than mine. I know you were expecting an attack over her mentioning aniston’s name but she didn’t get that from the handful of people who commented on that story. Speaking of real people who don’t care about the triangle, I guess you don’t include yourself in that group since you seem to comment about one of them at different sites on the web whenever the opportunity presents itself. Maybe you should come down off your high horse, eh.

    Does anyone know who that blogger is? I know some people here have suggested it’s Mel but the new one seems to have a nasty edge which I haven’t seen at the celebzter site. Maybe bohomoth is where she lets her inner bitch out anonymously (we all have one of those, don’t we?). I don’t have anything against the site, I’ve enjoyed some of the articles but I was surprised by the nasty tone of the remarks about jen and even diaz. She (or he) makes celebitchy look nice :)

    I can’t say for sure that Mel and Boho are one in the same, however, if she is attempting to create a successful and profitable blog she’s going about attracting the wrong sort of posters. She’s going to end up with a site like FF was a year or so ago where a small group “owned” the site and did nothing but war with other, newer posters. It nearly killed FF as most of the faithful regulars left to find more suitable blogs on which to post. Inciting in fighting only draws so many posters for a short while and either those who were drawn into it realize what it’s for…hits, or the posters find it unacceptable to stay on such a site. Reasonable discussion with a respectful sharing of opinions about the topic is more desired by most. Yes, we speculate about those who made themselves into a public comodity aka celebrity, but so what? Isn’t that what most people do on a daily basis about every day events and/or issues? It’s only when it’s reduced to gutter fighting that it becomes highly distasteful. I leave the gutter to those who prefer it and let them fight with themselves or their “other nics”……@Guest2:

    WTF , I have not read even 10 percent of the comments there but to be fair She did do a story just on Aniston, right, so if those commenting do not agree, by them doing it in no way lodges s complaint for an all Jen fan board, Why did you feel the need to make that comment, the article she wrote was nor acurate, but besides that, her comments about her story were weak . If she is not all that knocked out with Jen just say so, it is her blog, she can do that, instead she straddled the fence. Even Brad sounded more sincere when backtracked. Btw, the one about them breaking up was not right either.

    I have been to that site once a day, it was ok. I figured like Patty anne said, that it was a fledgling site still feeling its way and building.
    Like someone else said, it is the bloggers right to say what they like. And not every site has to kiss Aniston’s arse…BUT, for me…and I keep saying this like an excuse for my opinion, and I shouldn’t have to, but the loons favorite comeback is calling everyone who disagrees with them a hen, but after seven long years of IMO, 98%unjustified attacks on this woman, I guess even a non fan like me is bored shittless with the same ole crap and even if the criticism is someday called for, I know that I’ll just give it the eyeroll and ignore the source altogether. Like I said, I am not an Aniston fan, don’t dislike her either, but I am just plain weary of the ex wife bashing and even if I am wrong, I can’t help it now…I see most bashing now as more loon bullshittte and I deleted the address from my favorites lists. Again not a strict fan but I am way way way anti loon bullying and rudeness.

    @Guest2:
    i’m not taking them personally its the whole hypocritical attitude that annoys me. You people do the EXACT same thing here. If the whole Jen thing was rewritten by Ian as a riddle you’d all be salivating to solve it. Frankly the whole triangle ARE fame hungry attention seeking naracisstic people who have the range of a pea when it comes to acting. There is no difference in movies with Jennifer Aniston and Kate Hudson or Katherine Heigl. Sorry if you find that ‘offensive” but its true . Aniston has a very carefully crafted IMAGE as much as AJ and BP maybe even more so. Huvance spins his web and everyone buys into everything he says.

    so if someone comes along and doens’t believe the hype- they’re mean or have no sources. Bohomoth (like Mel) used to work in tab’s. The covers you see on the magazines and the stories are a result of focus groups and which story they react to the most. Hence all the Preggo stores on Jen and the breakup stories and/or marriage stories on AJ/BP

    Doesn;t mean any of it is true. And yes @GUEST2 i comment on these stories……and many others. I watch all 3 actors in whatever movies that come out, because i like movies. Same as i find the Kardashians trashy, Lindsay Lohan tragic, stories on these 3 suck me in as well.

    But it doesn’t mean i buy that JA is all California sunshine happy happy loves everyone girl and AJ is the evil witch who stole her man and made her cry. There’s 3 sides to every story – his, her’s and the truth which lies in the middle.

    As for admiring people i’ll never meet and that i consider shallow and not very bright – no i don’t admire them – I admire my mother for raising me so well after my dad died, i admire my best friend for being so strong in her fight with cancer which she ultimately lost.

    These sites are a reality escape for me. Thats all. Life isn’t so rosey as i know it right now. Today layoff notices are coming at work -for me? for friends? who knows – its a crap shoot. I’m separated from my husband – so ya this is an escape for me. But not for a second do i take it seriously.

    But it does flabbergast me when i see someone sprouting off holier than thou about how someone is so horrible making comments and being rude when that person does the exact same thing I’ve read soooo many comments on here that trash AJ/BP – and accuse them of some pretty horrible things. But you all seem to think you’re above all that. YOu’re not you’re exactly the same – IMO

    at the end of the day all anyone on a gossip site is doing is talknig about people they don’t know – speculating on what they’re doing based on a picture taken in a moment of time. I can guarantee i could photo analyze pictures of you all taken in a snap second and make up assumpations about you. We don’t know these celebs. So talking about them like you do is ridiculous and basing your assumptions on a publicist’s carefully calculated image and calling it the truth is crazy.

    Hollywood is a cess pool filled with users and abusers – the ones who float above it are the lucky ones, but don’t think they don’t all get their feet dirty at some time.

    You just confirmed that the blogger bohomoth was a writer for a tabloid and that’s exactly what that jen story was, a piece of tabloid crap based on “sources” that don’t exist and filled with inaccuracies, written to attract people to her site. No difference between her and In Touch or any of the tabs but, hey, a girl has to make a living, right. I also thought her swipe at diaz was mean and not remotely funny or witty. JMO and not going to debate this with you any longer as I know you’ll want the last word. As for your job, I sincerely hope you don’t lose it.

    As for IUC, it’s the best discussion forum of any of the gossip sites. Ian entertains us with his clever riddles and there’s a sense of community and continuity here with the posters. You gals (and guys) are the best and it’s been really fun being part of the group. Off to work now.

    In revealing your personal circumstances, you may have also revealed the source of your strength of feeling and bile toward other posters. Displacement activity anyone? On this site, people feel comfortable enough sometimes to bare their souls and make themselves vulnerable, safe in the knowledge that they will be met mostly with sympathy, understanding and support. Sounds like that could be what you need or are seeking here as it sure isn’t going to be forthcoming at FF or Mothballs, that’s for sure. Try putting down the bitterness for a moment and think about the effect of your posts on other people. Appreciating and respecting someone else’s position requires a bit of kindness and suppression of the ego. I know that’s hard sometimes if you’re not exactly feeling full of the milk of human kindness or don’t feel other people are extending that courtesy to you. But sometimes you have to make the first move. I’m sorry to hear that you are separated, you must be in turmoil and you have children don’t you? I’ve liked many of your posts here WTF, but you turn me off when you lash out and post something bitchy and confrontational.

    Mothballs called Jen “canesten” which is a cream used to relieve thrush (candida). I was reserving judgement on the site and wasn’t too impressed with some of the writing (amateur) or the sentiments and was suspicious of the anonymity. That catty article put me off it and I’m not even a Jen fan.

    Happy Easter everyone.

    @Armitage:
    I couldn’t have said it better myself. I didn’t even catch the “canesten” reference, at first…I thought it was a typo. I suppose it’s just as childish as when I refer to Ange as joLIE all the time :) Or call her a whore…but joLIE IS a LIAR and has behaved like a whore (over and over again)….canesten is a medical condition. If this website thinks that calling another women such a disgusting name will garner her attention/hits for her site, that’s her right, but as far as I can see…she mostly has snarky posters who put everyone and everything down. That shit gets old fast!

    I also think that there is a huge difference between authoring books and writing (making up) dirt in a tabloid, but that’s just my opinion. Most of these mags are staying afloat issue to issue, and that pressure is what pushes most of their “stories”, not necessarily the truth. IF a celeb actually decides to take them to court, it only gives the rag some credibility, so it’s better to just ignore them. That’s very different than when Ian puts his neck out (and reputation) when he writes a book. His riddles do drive me nuts sometimes, I would love a “yay or nay” once in awhile (hint-hint) ;) But they are interesting learning experiences, and great conversation starters :lol: If that bothers some people….I’m sorry they are unable to just take it light.

    “Stealing another’s man” (or woman) is an unfortunate occurrence that happens everywhere. An affair is basically an assault IMO – an assault to your self-worth, an assault emotionally and physically, and an assault to your privacy. To recover from an affair or divorce is nothing short of physical and emotional exhaustion.

    In regards to the triangle, this is where I become extremely frustrated. It is not so much the affair. Like I said, that happens, but the affair was not enough for AJ or BP. Their vicious behavior to JA afterwards was nothing short of evil in my mind. “Missing a sensitivity chip” was an understatement for the calculated reprehensible behavior those two showed to another human being they had already publicly humiliated. Seriously, what kind of people have a game plan to ruin another person’s life to benefit their own, a person who was willing to go away quietly.

    And I am well aware that all three profit from the triangle, but there would be no triangle if a certain amount of reasonable behavior would have been exercised by AJ and BP.

    And it just isn’t AJ’s behavior with that incident that there is no excuse for. Her adoptions have been corrupt and affected adoptions for innocent people. The spectacle she makes of her children is sinful. We have a Secretary of State with experience and knowledge in foreign affairs. We don’t need some actress that is an addict doing the job for us. And the list goes on. No one is saying JA is all sunny and such a wonderful person. We’re saying it is time to stop making her into a victim and show her some respect for taking the high road. Boho’s article put her back in the victim zone once again.

    *applauds* well said and delivered Liv, I think most people believe that this is all about Angelina stealing brad, and yet its not the case, Its the underhanded backlash that came with it. The projection of an image that never was.

    jen is just jen, she doesnt wear a habit and profess to heal the sick, she isnt perfect, she is just some lass living her life as well as she can.

    Ive said it before – if brad and angie are indeed in love, then let them get on with it, raise your kids, life your life and focus on whats important to them.

    Its the bullshit i cant stand personally.

    If brad and Angie stood up one day and said – here we stand, making nannies redundant, being full time parents cause we are financially able to! and then carried through with that statement thenI would actually like them more.

    again its the self professed idiotic bullshit i cannot stand, the lies, the rumours, the bitchin, the self professed god complex. I mean seriously – how can that matter in life?

    Someone at ff linked to an interview with Justin Hayward of the Moody Blues (I adore their music) and when asked who his favorite actress is this was his reply:

    I think one of the most beautiful women in America today is still Jennifer Aniston, and what on earth was Brad Pitt doing, leaving one of the most beautiful women in the world. Because there’s a difference between, you know, classic beauty and what is really attractive, and Jennifer has what is really, really attractive somehow.

    Rush, enjoy yourself. Nothing is more relaxing than being on a beach in Florida (this is my comment not JH’s).

    Or maybe they all look a bit annoyed (because Jen certainly seems unhappy to see paps and jumps in the car quickly and covers her face) because the paps have managed to catch them even though they are leaving through a back entrance of the restaurant and have a car pulled right up to the door? They are obviously leaving dinner, so why would Justin feel awkward at that point given they would have spent the previous couple of hours intimately talking and eating together? I know you don’t like him (as is your right), but always looking at things from a “glass half empty” perspective means he will never be able to do right by you.

    The quotes you refer to of Justin “insulting Tom” are not even insults. They are taken from an interview in response to a question about fame and he simply used Tom as an example (he could have used any big star, including Jen for that matter – and she’s made similar comments about fame before herself). He was commenting that the irony of fame for actors is that they are more convincing without people knowing everything about them and seeing pics of them all the time in their real lives. He used Hanks as an example of someone who (at the time of the quotes) was covered in the press regularly and who was then asking an audience to suspend belief and accept him as whatever character he portrays (and who was then less believable in a role because of his fame and people’s perceptions of him and who he is/was in real life). His comment was not insulting to Hanks at all, and I bet Hanks shares the same feelings on the subject of fame.

    Putting myself in Hanks’ place, I can see where a comment like that could be taken as an insult by the person mentioned even though it might not have been intended that way. When you’re trying to make a point about something like the pitfalls of fame it’s probably wise not to single someone out and mention them by name especially when you know your comments are going to be printed in a magazine and picked up by tabloids.

    @Guest2:
    I can agree with you that it may perhaps have been better for him not to mention anyone for fear that some who read the quotes out of context and with a view towards the negative will try to impute meaning that simply isn’t there. The flip side is that he was simply illustrating and illuminating his point, something highlighting a big name celeb by name made more clear. He was also giving these quotes when he was far less famous so probably didn’t expect they would be picked up by tabloids or blogs (which weren’t prevalent then)…which was the case.

    Fact is he was answering a question about fame and celebrity and giving his thoughts on how this can corrupt how the audience views your performance as an actor, not putting down Hanks. And if Hanks was so upset by these quotes he certainly isn’t showing it. Regardless, to think that after spending a couple of hours together dining intimately with their significant others, that at this point in the evening Justin would be feeling awkward about comments he made years ago, which weren’t insults to Hanks, and which he probably doesn’t even recall making is nonsensical.

    All celebs big and small will occasionally put their foot in it and say something stupid, or their quote will be shaved to spspark more interest in the printed interview (quite a lot is taken out of context)

    Like when Angelina made the statement that she doesn’t wear jeans or own jeans (I cannot remember correctly- so don’t quote me) but I have seen her in black jeans often, so I guess that her quote was shaven down, she possibly said – I don’t wear BLUE jeans! Again just speculating! But a lot of their 20 min interviews get shaven and hacked into 1000 words etc, whatever makes it juicy and sparks public interest I guess!

    I wasn’t bashing justin, I actually liked him in the interview he did with Ellen recently and I think his comments about Tom Hanks and the movie Castaway were likely from an old interview before he became a celebrity himself. I understand the point he was trying to make, though not sure I agree with him entirely. What I’d like to know is whether he feels the same way about his roles now that he’s a celebrity himself. Should we buy his character in the wanderlust role or will we just think of him as jennifer aniston’s boyfriend who broke up with heidi bivens after 14 years, who drives a ducati and bmw motorcyles, who adopted a rescue dog named sophie, bought a $21M Bel Aire mansion with jen (maybe) that has a winery on the grounds and is having massive renovations done and we see the photos all over the web, etc., etc? We now know more of his personal life than we do Tom Hanks. The same argument he made about hanks can be made about him but even more so because his celebrity revolves around tabloid stories and hanks’ fame was based on his professional achievements, multiple nominations and wins for Oscars, GG’s, Emmys, etc. That said, I think both men are talented enough actors to be believable in their roles; that probably is not the case with other actors who are less talented. I actually feel a little sorry for justin as I think he is learning some hard lessons about the pitfalls of celebrity and speaking your mind without measuring your words so they don’t come back and bite you in the behind (we’ve all done that, I think or at least I have!). jmo and not trying to bash or disagree with anyone. ps, we’ll never really know what tom hanks thinks about it unless he someday chooses to speak about it.

    I don’t think you were bashing Justin; my comment was more aimed at another poster who was taking the Hanks quote out of context and reading into it something that wasn’t there and then assuming from a single snapshot taken in the few seconds it took Justin to walk from the door of the restaurant to the car that Justin must be feeling awkward because of this years old quote. You said the quote was “likely from an old interview” and that was also my point: it is. It was from an interview done years ago (before he was very well known, before there was such dissection of celebrity interviews and blogs, etc.), and the quote came in response to a direct question about fame and celebrity. I was pointing this out as I know the quote (out of context) appears on his IMDB page and I can see how someone merely reading that and knowing little else about him or the interview may be able to read some meaning into it that simply wasn’t there (especially if they are wired to think negatively towards or about him).

    I do agree with you about the irony of how he viewed celebrity and his current position with respect to it. However, other celebs (including Jen herself) have expressed similar sentiments (that having too much known about you can be a distraction and hindrance to acting and an audience buying you in a role). Fact is, what are they supposed to do? They can sneak around and hide out from the paps and refuse to pose together on the red carpet, but the press still digs up their real estate purchases and photographs the construction on their home, etc. They’ve shared very little, while also riding the fine line of not being too closed off, which also can turn off an audience (it’s not like we don’t know they’re together so if they pretend otherwise or go too far out of their way to hide it that becomes insulting and a story too). He has said though that he is simply “following his heart.” David Lynch, who directed him in Mullholland Drive and Inland Empire said something similar:

    DETAILS: Inland Empire and Mulholland Dr. explored the weirdness of Hollywood, and now Justin Theroux, who starred in those movies, is on the cover of every celebrity rag, thanks to his relationship with Jennifer Aniston. It has a certain Lynchian quality, doesn’t it?

    David Lynch: Probably. Justin is following his heart, and you know, it’s not really anything to do with Hollywood. This kind of thing happens everywhere, but they don’t put it in magazines.

    Read More http://www.details.com/celebrities-entertainment/movies-and-tv/201111/david-lynch-crazy-clown-time-silencio#ixzz1rK14Hq2a

    I do feel that Justin’s had to have a quick learning curve where fame and celebrity and paparazzi are concerned, but I don’t think he’s had any “hard lessons about the pitfalls of celebrity and speaking your mind without measuring your words so they don’t come back and bite you in the behind.” Since he’s been with Jennifer he hasn’t said or done anything that I think fits this description (nor do I think he’s had any skeletons in his closet like that either). JMO, but I personally feel he’s handled himself very well given how little he was used to this sort of scrutiny that they are under. Lesser men haven’t handled it all that well, and he seems to be dealing with it as best as possible. As he said during Wanderlust interviews, it’s “absolutely worth it” to him given that the trade-off is their relationship.
