    I might have to go look up that story of the dress though! There's a similar story involving one of the superheroes (I think it's Raimi's Spider-Man?) where the costumes kept getting nicked off of set/in transit and they had to keep having new ones made all the time! Also, Sir Christopher Lee was given 'the golden gun' after appearing as Scaramanga and had it stolen off of him! (He was detained at airport security, so he had to explain that it wasn't a real gun but a prop; they were more interested in taking it off him when they realised that than they had been before! So he no longer has it.)




    I've seen maybe one post about it on Facebook? One satirical piece (it was a picture of Michael Jackson before and after surgery, with the quote 'first I saw blue and black, then I saw white and gold') and a couple of anti 'no one gives a sh*t' pieces. I don't have tumblr or any of those sorts of things, so I am mostly saved from internet phenomenon!




    I agree! I saw it as white and gold, then blue and gold, then black and blue. It was interesting and perfectly harmless and something to focus on that wasn't all the pains of the world! Plus, the articles explaining it have been pretty interesting to read. =)
    Oh goodness no I haven't, that makes me very sad. I have worked with a lot of entertainers and the sh*t they get is unbelievable, I can just imagine what people are saying about it already tbh. Not to mention the industry treats them like crap as well.

    I can only see it as blue/black, bf can change how he sees it lol

    Interestingly enough, that's (victim blaming, that is; that as a porn star she deserved it or couldn't be raped, etc.) not the perspective a lot of news articles are taking with it. Most are condemning the 'feminist agenda' for ignoring it. They're saying that loads of popular feminist blogs haven't reported it, because they don't care about 'real victims', etc., and that 'modern feminism' isn't about rights for women, but subjugating men. Essentially, lots of articles are saying that feminists can't 'back up' their claims when real sexual attacks occur and aren't bothered about helping women who've been hurt. It's very bizarre. still, utterly horrific for her! It sounds like it was a real case of 'stereotypical stranger danger' (I put it in quotes because stranger danger rape isn't really that common, despite what the media says; as I'm sure you know, most rapes are committed by people known to the victim) rape, where her front door was kicked down by a gang, who then robbed and raped her (with her family still in the house). It's awful. How on Earth can you feel safe after something like that? Having someone break into your home really shatters your confidence of your own safety even when you haven't been assaulted.

    EDIT;; Also, just to return to the dress thing, I have the same page with the photo open on both my phone and my computer. On one screen it's gold, the other it is black! Exactly the same photo, yet the screens are displaying it differently (or I'm perceiving it differently from the different screens).

    Hmm. Either someone has changed the spelling of their name or I have been misreading it for years... I have an awful feeling that it's the latter!

    No, she's missing. She brought in a rabbit at 4am this morning, I took it off her cos I have no desire to clean rabbit guts out of the carpet either before or after they've been eaten. Haven't seen her since and I'm terrified that she went back out for another rabbit and got splatted on the way home.
