Dwayne-Johnson-on-the-set-of-Pain-and-Gain-2012-Movie-ImageMy curiosity about Michael Bay’s real life steroid infused criminal enterprises story turned summer action flick has been pretty much off the charts since I saw this image of The Rock.

Now that the trailer has hit it seems like it will be a fun little ride.

Pain & Gain is an upcoming action comedy film written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely and directed by Michael Bay.

The film is based on a 1999 series of Miami New Times articles by investigative journalist Pete Collins about a couple of Florida steroid-abusing knucklehead bodybuilders who become criminals involved in an extortion ring and a kidnapping plot that goes horribly awry.

As Collins put it:

“They were local bodybuilders with a penchant for steroids, strippers, and quick cash. And they became expert in the use of a peculiar motivational tool: Torture”.

The crime pic was budgeted at $25M and is part of Bay’s two-film deal with Paramount(the other is Transformers 4also with Wahlberg.

The film is scheduled for a release date of April 26, 2013.

Plot: It’s a drug that promises an out-of-body experience with each hit. On the street they call it Soy Sauce, and users drift across time and dimensions. But some who come back are no longer human. Suddenly a silent otherworldly invasion is underway, and mankind needs a hero. What it gets instead is John and David, a pair of college dropouts who can barely hold down jobs. Can these two stop the oncoming horror in time to save humanity? No. No, they can’t.

UPDATE: This raging assclown is STILL at it.

The most recent post on the fake ass “R.I.P. Sandy Hook Elementary” Facebook page is asking people to “subscribe to our community page”.

Funny thing is, the idiot didn’t have the common sense to remove other posts on the thing. By simply scrolling down you see tons of shots of stacks of cash, as if this fool is some sort of baller.

Go down to the actual day of the damn shootings and you find THIS posted on the “community page”

R.I.P Sandy Hook Elementary School Children2

 

Some f***in’ people just make me sick.

A fella who goes by “Whiskey”, at the Whiskey & The Morning After Blog directed my attention something that is just absolutely wretched.

An assclown (Nick Shawn Moss, a.k.a. Cardy Cherry) is trying to cash in on the Newtown Tragedy to promote himself as an artist.

Here’s the nuts & bolts of it.

He’s trying to cash in on the Newtown tragedy by “gaming” the mechanics of Facebook.

He changed the name of his page to, loaded it up with pictures of the event and is racking up “Likes” & “Subscribers” so that down the road when he changes it all back he’ll be in hundreds of thousands of timelines.

UPDATE: He has since either temporarily shut it down then reset the “creation date” or used some other trick to make it appear as if it was created in December. Whiskey has screengrabs from the showing it was created in August though, as shown below.

He will also start showing up eventually on all of those people’s friends timeline via that mechanism that forces you to see “<your aunt>, <your brother>, <that guy you knew in high school> likes Wal-Mart”.

He’s gaming the mechanics of Facebook for free advertising, using this event as the means.

I am going to go pour a stiff one just thinkin’ about that douchebaggery so I’ll let Whiskey take it from here:

On Monday, December 17th, I logged into Facebook and saw that a friend of mine had “liked” a page supposedly dedicated to the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting. Like probably everyone else who has Facebook, Twitter, or any other sort of social media, half of my newsfeed was filled with posts, images and links about this national tragedy.

As my mouse hovered over the page entitled “R.I.P Sandy Hook Elementary School Children”, I noticed it had over 200,000 likes and growing. I decided to check it out.

My suspicions were confirmed when I saw images downloaded from news sites with the instructions to:

“LIKE THIS LINK
SHARE IT
SUBCRIBERS===>http://www.facebook.com/cardy.chery&#8221;.

Now this is normally standard fare for some scammer sites on Facebook but when I checked out the personal profile, I wanted to throw my laptop through the window in a fit of rage. This person is using the tragedy of what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary to promote his personal music profile as well as his page called “Lil Brown“. He is on a label called “We Are Young Money“.

This guy is apparently some aspiring low level hip hop artist who is using the deaths of teachers and children to gain web traffic and cash in on it.

Now I’ve seen some really disgusting use of tragic events to make money but I think this one deserves the “shit head of the century” award.

The offending page was started in August, 4 months before the events of 12-14-2012 and “Cardy Chery” changed the name of the page in order to cash in on publicity surrounding the massacre.

There’s plenty of pages who use images with “like if you think she’s beautiful, ignore if you have no heart”.

You’ve seen them, those pictures that your friend “liked” along with 607,890 other people and the text “add me to get 5,000 followers”. They also do that with pictures of injured pets, disabled children soldiers returning from war, and anything else to gain the most “likes and shares” possible.

They do this to fill your news feed with game requests, spam for Viagra, Air Jordans, etc. Even legitimate pages do the “like and share” thing as a way to expand their audience on social media without having to pay for it.

In this case, I think we’ve found someone who found a new low. I’ve enclosed a couple screenshots as evidence along with the links provided.

I went as far as to “screencapture” the entire offending page, just in case the jackwagon decides to change it back because of all the heat. You can see the thing right HERE & HERE.
