Sony Has Officially Pulled “The Interview”

The-Interview1(PCM) After weeks of controversy, including one of the largest and most damaging entertainment industry hacks, Sony has officially announced their decision to cancel the December 25th release of director Evan Goldberg’s comedy about an assassination plot against Kim Jong-un, The Interview, starring Seth Rogen and James Franco.

This comes on the heels of a threatening message from the hacker group, the Guardians of Peace. The threat promised 9/11 style attacks on theaters that screened The Interview on Christmas day, causing the majority of theaters chains to cancel scheduled screenings of the film.

Fox News confirmed that the FBI suggested on Thursday morning that North Korea has ties to the hacker group, confirming many people’s’ suspicion that the East Asian country is behind the terroristic threat issued on Tuesday.

The death scene of Kim Jong-un was recently leaked online and it’s not hard to understand why North Koreans are offended. The slow-motion scene depicts Kim Jong-un’s helicopter being struck by a missile while the dictator explodes to a stripped down version of Katy Perry’s “Firework.”

Sony released a statement announcing the cancellation of the now controversial film, which can be read below.

As is being widely reported in the press, Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE) experienced a significant system disruption on Monday, November 24, 2014. SPE has determined that the cause of the disruption was a brazen cyber attack. After identifying the disruption, SPE took prompt action to contain the cyber attack, engaged recognized security consultants and contacted law enforcement.

SPE learned on December 1, 2014, that the security of certain personally identifiable information about its current and former employees, and their dependents, that participated in SPE health plans and other benefits, and certain production employees potentially may have been compromised. Although SPE is in the process of investigating the scope of the cyber attack, SPE believes that the following types of personally identifiable information that such individuals provided to SPE potentially may have been obtained by unauthorized individuals: (i) name, (ii) address, (iii) social security number, driver’s license number, passport number, and/or other government identifier, (iv) bank account information, (v) credit card information for corporate travel and expense, (vi) username and passwords, (vii) compensation and (viii) other employment related information. In addition, unauthorized individuals may have obtained (ix) HIPAA protected health information, such as name, social security number, claims appeals information submitted to SPE (including diagnosis), date of birth, home address, and member ID number to the extent that the potentially impacted individuals participated in SPE health plans, and (x) health/medical information provided to SPE outside of SPE health plans.

Also on December 1, 2014, SPE began the process of notifying employees that it would be providing identity theft protection services to them and to their dependents. SPE has continued to reach out to potentially impacted individuals with notification about this situation, to offer identity protection services and to provide them with information about how to protect themselves from identity theft and other potential loss. SPE is encouraging potentially impacted employees and former employees to be especially aware of email, telephone, and postal mail scams that ask for personal or sensitive information, as neither SPE nor anyone acting on its behalf would contact them in any way, including by email, asking for credit card number, social security number/government identifier or other personally identifiable information. Individuals asked for this information can be confident SPE is not the entity asking. To protect against possible identity theft or other financial loss, SPE encourages potentially impacted employees and former employees to remain vigilant, review account statements, monitor credit reports to the extent available, change passwords and to enroll promptly in the identity theft protection services made available to them by SPE.

The purpose of this press release is to take further steps to make sure that potentially impacted individuals receive this information.

Potentially affected individuals can review the full text of individual notifications and/or obtain information about AllClear ID identity protection services that may be available to them at or by calling the SPE Information and Support Hotline. The U.S. toll free number is: (866) 361-8961; the international number is: +1 (262) 222-0434.

GWAR Eternal Tour Beautifully Paid Homage To Lost Leader Oderus Urungus


(PCM) Many were curious just how GWAR and the scumdogs of the universe would survive after the loss of their leader Oderus Urungus but I can say that his spirit was very much alive and well during the GWAR Eternal Tour as it slayed its’ way across the nation.

After being sucked through a hole in the space/time continuum Lord Blothar has now found himself thrust on stage fronting the almighty GWAR and he certainly managed to pull it off without a hitch. Well, maybe that is not entirely true … he did have to deal with his sister from a distant future the sexy breast-blood spewing Vulvatron.

The tour overall focused on GWAR’s search for their lost leader Oderus and they payed homage to his spirit beautifully. The show was both highly entertaining and the perfect way to allow fans to both celebrate and mourn the death of Oderus, who in his own right was a true rock n’ roll pioneer.


The production for this tour was phenomenal and it was an utterly fantastic idea to have the first song of the evening performed by Oderus himself through the magic mirror aka. a video screen on-stage. I am not going to lie that I actually shed tears during the song while watching one of the slaves (GWAR’s on-stage hands/prop guys) looking devastated the clawing at the screen which contained an image of their beloved leader.

Musically speaking everyone in GWAR has truly stepped up their game and their finale cover of the Pet Shop Boy’s “West End Girls” was fantastic. I definitely enjoyed GWAR’s version a whole lot more than the original.

I am sure that GWAR will have plenty more in-store for 2015 as the band will be celebrating their 30th anniversary!  It is sure to be a bloody good time!
