"He's trying to be Dennis Hopper... and failing miserably."/"Or Sam Shepard. Especially the shot with the finger to his brow."

"Immediately I thought, 'Please Unicorn Jesus, don't let this man make a remake of Easy Rider.'"

That's set-of-comments #1 about the Rolling Stone pictures of Owen Wilson, featured at Tom & Lorenzo (who say: "Owen, Sue them. Sue them all. Make everyone who did this to you pay in blood, money and tears of regret").

Set-of-comments #2 is: "Yikes! It's like the photographer was doing everything he could in order for you to see David Spade's version of Owen's nose."/"There should be a censor bar across that thing."/"That's ALL I can see."

I do not need to Google what did David Spade say about Owen's nose to know what they are talking about. I Googled it anyway, and I see it's not something he said, it's a prosthesis he wore on his own nose. I also found this:

Hesitating before hitting "publish," I wonder if this post would fall within Lena Dunham's definition of the kind of threat that the corporate gatekeepers should filter out of the internet.

I kind of like his nose, but he looks like he's been around the block a few times too many in those photos.

Owen Wilson is already on the edge of cloying, if it weren't for that nose, nobody would be able to stand the sweetness of that guy.

Huh. Assuming celebrities review the choices of images selected, this just makes me love him more. The Nose appears gloriously uglier than ever before. Owen doesn't care!

Who does that?

Who does that?

Bob Dylan and his voice spring to mind. "Own it" is good advice.

Lena Dunham believes that her personal feelings of the world define the world, not just for her but for everyone. And if not, then by law it should be so. Narcissus would applaud her behavior. We need not.

My daughter, at three years old, used to cry "Stop YELLING at me!" when she was told, in a normal voice, to do something she did not want to do. This is essentially what Lena, as a supposedly adult human female, does as well. My daughter, having been kindly instructed to stop her silly childish antics, did so by age four. Lena Dunham mayhap requires someone to help her do likewise. And no, that is NOT a threat.

Point of order: There is a sequel to Easy Rider. It's called Easy Rider 2: The Ride Back and was made in 2012.

Here is the How Did This Get Made episode on that gem of a movie.

Actually Lena Dunham is the kind of threat that needs to be filtered out of the internet. With a woodchipper, a gallon of gasoline, and a flick of the Bic.
