Stefan Molyneux's Secret Life as a Hot Babe Who Loves Stefan Molyneux

In the comments section to philosopher-douchebag Stefan Molyneux’s review of Frozen, a self-described “attractive young woman” posts a review of his hour-long review that is so effusively positive that it almost sounds like it was posted by the man himself.

Oh, wait: he did post it himself.

Can this be real? I mean, it is real; I just went and got the screenshot. But is it really possible that Mr. M tried to sockpuppet in the comments to his own video, posing as his own biggest fan? Or did some worshipful young hottie sneak onto his laptop when he wasn’t looking and post the comment? What kind of “philosopher” does that? Did Jean-Paul Sartre send love letters to himself? Did Kierkegaard leave gushing messages on his own answering machine?

I think we can safely say “no,” at least to the latter, given that Mr. K died in 1855.

But what the hell, Stefan? I eagerly await your two-hour video explaining this one.

Also, if you could explain why my cell phone keeps randomly beeping, that would be great too. It’s really annoying.

(Thanks to everyone who sent this to me.)

UPDATE: I figured out the problem with my cell phone! Oh, and I have also been told that Stef’s self-congratulatory comment was actually a repost of a comment from someone else. He wasn’t pretending to be a young hottie. He was posting a quote from a young hottie without indicating in any way that it was a quote from someone other than him. Good job! So I’ve changed “written” to “posted” in the text above.

Now, though, I’m wondering if that person also wrote the comment that Stef used to introduce his video:

I mean, that has to be written by someone else, because what kind of arrogant douchenozzle would not only write about himself in the third person but also describe his own video as “must watch?” David Futrelle needs to know.

I find Brad Pitt very attractive. More so in his Interview with the Vampire and Legends of the Fall days though. I don’t think he’s what all the young hotties desire. I’m an elderly 34 year old and loved him when I was in high school.

Oh, he was definitely hot with long hair, enough so to overcome my disinterest in blonds to a limited extent. That being said, I’m in the prime age range to find him hot. The teenage girls who MRAs are obsessed with? They’ve presumably moved on to celebrities who’re not old enough to be their dads.

LOL actually it was the hair in Interview that put me off, and I love me some long hair. Only saw a bit of Legends of the Fall but I do remember he looked good in that, at least when he had a bit of facial hair happening. Don’t get me wrong, he’s a very pretty man, but just doesn’t do anything for me – not even on the “yes I could happily watch films just to admire that face” level. Now Paul Newman, Robert Redford, Gregory Peck – them I can happily watch!

I always thought Brad Pitt and Robert Redford have an uncanny resemblance to each other.

The “Ooooh, droool” reference I have never, ever understood is Kevin Costner. Seriously? He’s as interesting as wallpaper glue, both from a beauty/charisma standpoint and from an acting chops one.

Yeah, I’d never even think of Kevin Costner as a potential Hot Actor name.

Just made me think of Ken Branagh in his younger days. He was rather appealing, especially in his Hamlet get-up. The moustache hid the fact he’s got no lips. 😉

Pitt looks like he could be Redford’s son. It’s freaky. Pitt did look a bit silly in Interview, but considerably less so than Tom Cruise, who looked so ridiculous that I was embarrassed for him (let’s not even talk about his acting).

Not to mention Antonio Banderas. Or Kirsten Dunst’s insta-perm when she gets turned. ::snicker::

Only thing I can say about that film is I disliked it marginally less than the book … though I remember it being OMG SO BORING.

My favourite looks for Newman and Redford: Newman in The Sting, Redford in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. (Why yes they did each have moustaches in those roles, why do you ask?)

Antonio Banderas as Armand has to be one of the worst casting decisions of all time.

weirwoodtreehugger

I just worshiped Interview in 9th grade. I agree that Antonio Banderas was weird casting. The book version of Armand was an auburn haired teenager. How did he come to mind as the best choice?

That was what got me, WWTH! Armand, short, fifteen (give or take a coupla centuries), curly auburn hair, wore 15th century black doublet and hose iirc … how the heck does that translate to what they had in the film?

I can understand the need for an older actor to play Claudia; that’s not a role a real five-year-old could manage. But this? Weird.

I think the idea of eternally angsty teenage boys was part of what put me off about the book. I was in my thirties when I read it and felt like telling ’em all except Marius (was it him – the Roman dude?) to knock off the emo stuff and get a life. Or an unlife.

Even a twinky-looking 20 something I could have lived with as Armand, but macho hairy very much adult Banderas? It totally undercut the tragedy of the character and messed up the characterization.

I’ve never read the book (Rice is not my cuppa), but I did see the movie. I had no idea who Banderas was at the time. The scenes with him in it seemed oddly overwrought, like there was a whole storyline being hinted at, but not included in the movie.

If I read the Vampire Chronicles for the first time now I would probably feel the same way. Although Pandora, one of the other old ones is cool too.

However, I read them as a teenager and loved them. Because teen girls + angst = <3
I still have a soft spot for them and the movie. Not the Queen of the Damned movie though. That was horrid.

I was an angsty goth kid when I first read those books, so…

(I still maintain that for all their flaws they’re far, far less harmful to readers than Twilight. And also free of the horror that is vampires playing baseball.)

Oh yeah, I’d probably have felt very differently about ’em if I’d read them as a teen, no doubt. I certainly don’t see them as harmful, just sooooo not my thing – never liked Rice’s style and the given names of two of the main characters, being the same as two chaps very important to me, was a consant irritant (“Stop being such wimps, you two! Live up to your names!”) 🙂

VAMPIRES playing BASEBALL?

My life has been spared so much horror by not reading that stuff.

The vampire baseball may actually have offended me even more than the unhealthy relationship dynamics. What’s next, having the werewolves pluck their eyebrows?

weirwoodtreehugger

I was most offended by vampires glittering in the sun instead of bursting into flames. No. Just no. Can not deal.

I do recommend the Riff Trax version of the Twilight movies though. Those movies are such Mystery Science Theater material.

I’ll say one thing for the glittery vampires idea, at least it led to this.

Seriously David. You finding this must be equivalent to an archeologist finding a new dinosaur species in a dig! Priceless.

Oh lord, Kenneth Branagh. I swear to god, they couldn’t have found a better casting choice for Gilderoy Lockhart had the dude got up and walked out of the pages Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

RE: WWTH

OMG YES. We watched the Twilight Rifftraxx at me and hubby’s bachelor party and it was GLORIOUS. Also created catch-phrases for the rest of our wedding (“you can’t be one of us! You’re not pretentious enough!” and “sit down, have some plaid!” among others).

All I can say is if you use the words “Twilight” and “Sparkle” in the same sentence, you’d better be talking about a purple unicorn who lived in Ponyville Library.
