    To all: if you ever get the chance, see that performed in theater. The one thing the movie got wrong (it was otherwise flawless) was it just couldn't capture the claustrophobia of the sets. It is like watching people operate on each other without anesthesia. Mamet is a jerk and a fool IRL but that is brilliant. Even with mediocre actors it's still riveting.
    I’ve never seen the trailer to the movie before.

    It’s terrible. Doesn’t match the vibe of the movie at all.

    Hopefully he ends up like the washed up salesman in Alec Baldwin's Glengarry Glen Ross story, getting sloshed at the bar while complaining about how tough his old job was.

    There's a chance he's heading more towards the lowtax route.

    Funny enough, VHS over Betamax lead to Blu-Ray over HD-DVD. Sony learned it’s lesson with Betamax and applied it to Blu-Ray decades later.

    OnlyFans welcomed them when Patreon "cleaned house."
    Twitter silently let them post pictures and links when Facebook (and Instagram when FB bought them), Tumblr, and other sites shunned them.

    If the vote goes against him, I fully expect him to name his long lost twin Elan Musk as the next CEO of Twitter

    Should I step down as head of Twitter? I will abide by the results of this poll.

    Mastodon, freshly unsuspended from Twitter, lays the lumber.

    He should also call it the "Anti-Fascist Protection Rampart".
