Fifty Shades of Grey:

Was it really? I mean, sure, people poked a lot of fun at it and a whole bunch of women probably read it when they normally wouldn't read that sort of thing. That doesn't translate to having a major impact on literature and sexuality, though.
Be not afraid...

My point exactly. People aren't even doing the poking-fun part anymore.

Do you think anyone will even remember this book in ten years?

The last hurrah? Nah, I'd do it again.

It was 14 in the New York Times bestseller list last week[1].

It's not going to be remembered in 10 years time or even five. But people are buying it and reading it. It's financial success as e-book publishing and female targeted erotica or 'mommy porn' is going to effect marketing for years to come.

Will it at least be well written mommy porn that doesn't shit on BDSM?

Anybody want to talk about how desperate studio execs seem to have gotten in casting this bloody movie (do they realize that they're basically making Hollyood budget porn? I mean it'll have to have at LEAST an R rating, or it's not 50 Shades anymore).

I had a good giggle at watching the casting unfold, and watching everyone guess at who would play the leads, especially Christian. First it was established A-listers, then it was rising stars (Charlie Hunnam). Now it appears that Hunnam has realized what a monumentally stupid decision that was...and now we have a guy who's currently playing a serial killer (in The Fall with Gillian Anderson)on TV as Christian. Nice. Makes me wonder if they're going try and NOT glamourize the damn thing, but eh....

I had a good laugh at the petition the fans set up to get Hunnam replaced with Matt Bomer when the former was originally cast. It basically boiled down to "this guy should be christian bcuz we say so."

They should just make it a series of soap opera style episodes, like a mini-series. 3 discs per book, charged for $20 each. For every "true" fan of this how-to guide about abusing your partner and taking it in stride willing to buy it, they'll make a profit of $270 each.

So... last year my classmate presented this book at my teacher`s project "passion of reading".

He was 16.

The kids in the class ranged around 14-16.

As a big Matt Bomer fan I am glad about the outcome. He is way too good for this role, even if he does look the part. As one of the few good looking actors who can actually act (and I mean really act) he would be wasted in this one. I prefer to see him devote his time to more challenging roles which show his range.

I saw two of the books in the trilogy sitting on a table in one of my local charity shops the other day there. Where kids could pick them up because Oh Shiny!

I, to my horror, actually considered buying them just to see if they were as bad as my mental picture paints them.

My sister bought the kindle version...mostly because she is also a big Matt Bomer fan and heard about all the fuss that he should get the role. So I peeked in, not knowing anything about it at this point, and my reaction was: This reads like Twilight for Adults. So no, don't bother. I didn't even made it past the first chapter.

Do the movie as a cartoon. Cartman from South Park plays Christian. Meg from Family Guy plays the Butt Monkey, Goofy from Dis Ney plays any other characters.
What if there were no hypothetical questions?

There are 10 kinds of people: those who understand Binary and those who don't.

Well, since the Family Guy Star Wars specials were actually pretty good, this would not be too bad an idea for some comedy value from this keech.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
