Rule 5 Monday with Anna Kendrick

Anna Kendrick Red CarpetApologies to my readers. Last week was very busy, and the weekend wasn’t much different. The bad news, as far as this blog is concerned, is that we won’t make all of the Rule 5 link posts this week. The good news is that there will be two links for next week.

Goodstuff’s Cyber World: Zexy Asian Chicks

American Power: Sabine Jemeljanova 2015 Calendar

The Other McCain: Rule 5 Sunday: Levitation

The Daley Gator: Dailybabe Saemi Yazawa

Nailgun Evi: NFL Cheerleaders for Week 4

Anna Kendrick ElleThere are no nude pictures of Anna Kendrick, at least thus far. Apparently there are pictures of her smoking, which is a far bigger crime these days.

Hopefully we’ll be back on schedule after this week’s unexpected delays. I’ve said that a few times, though.

You Also Won’t Find Nude Photos of Kaley Cuoco Here

Kaley Cuoco Bikini SwanNope. I’m not even providing links this time. You all will just have to Google it. I have a headache today. Let’s get this thing going.

The Other McCain: Rule 5 Sunday: The Man Who Saved Britain

The Daley Gator: Dailybabe Ally Maki

Nailgun Evi: Eartha Kitt Rule 5

Kaley Cuoco Bikini CaboWant to know something mildly depressing? The link on this blog that people have clicked the most in the last week or so is the Encyclopedia Dramatica page with nude pictures of Zoe Quinn. Have at it weirdos.

Rule 5 Linkfest with Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift PaddleboardHappy Saturday you lovely people. Today’s linkfest is brought to you by Taylor Swift, for no reason other than she showed up in Google Entertainment news and that might lead to some clickbait. So yeah. Linkfest.

Goodstuff’s Cyber World: Angelina Jolie and Her Bulbous Torpedo Tatas

American Power: Nina Agdal for Leonisa Lingerie September 2014

The Other McCain: Rule 5 Sunday: Are You Ready for Some Football

Nailgun Evi: U.S. Naval Academy Agita with #Gamergate Rule 5 Update – Eh. Anita Sarkeesian is kinda cute. Zoe Quinn, not so much.

Taylor Swift BikiniSpeaking of Zoe Quinn, last week’s Rule 5 post is still getting pretty healthy traffic. From what I can tell, Zoe and her harem are no longer the primary focus of GamerGate. That is definitely a positive development.

Destiny Review

Destiny ReviewBungie is requesting that reviewers not post first-day reviews of their new tour de force Destiny. By some coincidence, major gaming websites and online reviewers across the Internet have posted remarkably similar headlines following this request. Here are a few.

Destiny Review in Progress – Gamespot

Destiny Review Diary – GamesRadar

Review in Progress: Destiny – Destructoid

‘Destiny’ Review In Progress – Day One: To The Moon Alice! – Forbes

Where’s Our Destiny Review? – GameInformer

Other sources have their (or Bungie’s marketing department’s) editorial policies, but Blackmailers Don’t Shoot won’t let such petty considerations stand in the way of a scoop. Since fighting off a group of middle school students at midnight, I’ve stayed awake with a 5 Hour Energy reduction playing this magnificent work of art.

destiny-sniperFirst Impressions

It was when I first found myself flying over the snow-capped peaks of Ursula Major on a plasma weapon-laden flying bear that I first realized that Destiny is the best game since the last Halo game. Actually, I hesitate to use the word “game” to describe Destiny. In fact, I hesitate to use any words to describe Destiny, as language is but an imperfect vehicle by which we seek to understand the divine. To call Destiny great is to devalue the very notion of greatness. It would hardly be a stretch to assert that philosophy was invented so that one day mere man could better understand Destiny.

Destiny RiflesGraphics

Destiny doesn’t have graphics as we know them. What Destiny offers instead is a visual experience that explodes from the monitor like a busted Technicolor sewer pipe. In the 16 hours since the game has been dazzling my living room, this review marks the first time that I have taken my eyes off of the screen. Were it not for the sheer beauty of Destiny’s visual display, I fear that by now I may have gone totally blind.

Sound

Renaissance man believed that the planets made a celestial music that the human ear could not hear. The truth of that theory has now been revealed by Destiny’s soundtrack.

Destiny TableauxValue and Final Thoughts

The only negative thing that I can say about Destiny is that it has ruined all other games for me. That one negative is mitigated by the fact that I will never have to buy another game. Destiny is so – so – beyond any positive description that I can give, that I am happy playing it on my Playstation 3 and will never have to upgrade to a Playstation 4. I recommend, without hesitation, that you all go out and pay full price for Destiny. You will never need another game and you will never need another console.

Score: Numbers do not go high enough

 

College Is Back in Session

And that means the long-awaited return of the privileged children of the UCSB Microaggressions Facebook page. The moderator kicks off the new year by once again railing against the oppression that has landed him or her at a highly ranked university on the beach.

SJW MoronAt this point, no one with any sense should be offended when called an -ist, an -ite or a -phobe by a Social Justice Warrior. Don’t try to argue. Don’t point out the racism in what they’re saying. Just laugh at them.

Quinnspiracy Rule 5 Linkaround

Zoe Quinn NudeAt some point in the near future I plan to do a post on GamerGate and the Quinnspiracy. In fact, I almost wrote it up today, but decided that the Rule 5 linkfest was a far more important post. If you’re not a gamer or you don’t know what I’m talking about, here is a place to start.

Sorry. I know this was hardly up to the normal Rule 5 quality that you all have come to expect. It’s just that I’ve been following this story and it doesn’t look like it’s going away.

You Won’t Find Nude Pictures of Jennifer Lawrence Here

Blackmailers Don’t Shoot has had a spike in traffic over the last 16 hours or so, and before my first cup of coffee I had that gleeful/terrified feeling that a blogger gets when he thinks that he managed to royally piss someone off. Alas, further review shows that people have been coming here looking for nude pictures of celebrities, most notably Jennifer Lawrence.

Jennifer Lawrence Oscars
That was my reaction too!

Jennifer Lawrence is this blog’s unofficial girlfriend, and aside from maintaining the blog’s PG-13 rating, chivalry demands that I not give in to such shameless behavior. Sure, it’s tempting, but we must maintain our standards.

Jennifer Lawrence
This isn’t good enough for you?

You could go to this link, which you could theoretically follow to the Reddit page, which is probably NSFW and probably Photoshopped. That’s on you. Blackmailers Don’t Shoot will remain innocent in this whole dirty affair.

Jennifer Lawrence Legs
This whole dirty affair.

Those of you who don’t want to take part in this whole feeding frenzy can check out the Blackmailers Don’t Shoot Jennifer Lawrence archive.

Update: More from Donald Douglas at American Power. PostalDog has the (NSFW) goods. The comments section at Vox Popoli is lively as usual.

Rule 5 Linkfest with Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato SunshineThe office closed early on Friday for Labor Day and I have a three day weekend. That’s called living the dream. The only thing that would improve the situation is if my job description included driving a golf cart. This week Blackmailers Don’t Shoot brings a standalone Demi Lovato post, because Selena Gomez had her own post and she’s been ruined with sustained Bieber cooties. And Demi is cute, in both her curvy and thin incarnations.

Just Asking Some Questions About Daniel Ashley Pierce

Someone I know posted this story to Facebook and I ignored it, because I’ve been trying to avoid clickbait lately. Now that all of the usual suspects have uncritically run with the story, though, it’s worth examining in a bit more depth. Here’s a synopsis of the latest viral silliness.

Earlier this week, a heartbreaking video went viral of a young man being subjected to an “intervention” from his family who disapproved of him being gay, which ended in them calling him a “disgrace” and a “damn queer” assaulting him and ultimately disowning him–because they don’t want anyone thinking they condone his “lifestyle.”

[...]

Since then, the boy has been revealed to be 20 year-old college student Daniel Ashley Pierce, and his boyfriend–who originally posted the video on Reddit–created a GoFundMe page with a goal of $2000 to help Daniel with living expenses during this time. So far, he has raised over $58,000, with over 2,000 people donating to the cause.

Click the link if you want to see the video. After you watch it, here are a few thoughts to ponder:

1. This picture was posted to Facebook on March 29.

Daniel Ashley PierceDoes the guy on the right (that would be Daniel Ashley Pierce) look like he hasn’t been out of the closet for a while?

2. Why was the incident taped? Unless Daniel Ashley Pierce was expecting this intervention to blow up, why catch the thing on camera?

3. Related: Does this story sound at all familiar? Even if what transpired in the video actually happened as presented, did the two men know that this would be a crowd-funding opportunity?

4. Hmmm…

Daniel Ashley Pierce FacebookThis sounds a lot like a business decision. Perhaps Mr. Pierce is a remarkably composed man, but remember that this incident allegedly happened three days ago. It seems very early to be jockeying for public figure status.

Social Justice Warriors are gullible. Stories like this seem to go viral every week, and by the time that they’re proven fake the donations have come in and a lot of well-meaning ninnies look like fools. Like I said, this story may be completely legit, but if I was a gambler I’d put good money down that we’re not seeing at least 50% of what actually happened.

As a famous statesman once said, “Fool me once, shame on you…Fool me twice…Won’t get fooled again.”

(h/t Donald Douglas)

Update: Daniel Ashley Pierce’s Gofundme page has raised over $93,000 as of 8:45 Pacific Time. The guy is crying all the way to the bank.

Update II: Linked at American Thinker. This is a far more complex story than Pierce’s supporters and financial backers want it to be, so read Chad Greene’s post. Family drama is rarely as simple as what we see in a viral video.

Rule 5 Linkfest with Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba BedThe new 9 to 5 has taken most of my time and all of my energy this week, so blogging has been nonexistent. It doesn’t seem to have mattered, though, because Katy Perry is driving a lot of search engine traffic to Blackmailers Don’t Shoot, especially from France and Germany for some reason. This week we bring you Jessica Alba, because she’s in the new Sin City movie and apparently said movie tanked at the box office this weekend.*
