Bad Dan...worst fan.
There is no end this time in loling about that. Dan Radcliff dared to get ride of his clouthes. The outcry is big...either because of outrage or because fans get off on that *lol*.
I'm right now laughing my arsh off about </a></b></a>ohnotheydidnt. The comments are so priceless. I just knew this Equus thing would rock some boats but that...heh... linky.
On top of that it's spreading. Todays's Newspaper in Germany: Bild: Harry Potter is now a man
And we get first discussions and reactions on manipulations:
linky 1 and
linky 2 "At least H/Hr or Dan/Emma shippers did it first"
lol and laugh about it too...I saw at least a lot of LOL and ROFL on their own accord rather than: OMG I'm disgusted, I tell you DISGUSTED...bah.
Come on if this whole thing isn't lol worth, I don't know what it is. I could have set my clock after it who will come up with a manipulation first. The first one I saw was *dum dum* Harry/Fleur *pwned*
But let's move on to really batshit, shall we? Yeah, right TLC of course linky Highlights:
I really don't enjoy looking at a naked young man pic. This is soooo embarassing. And disturbing.
We're SOOOO glad to see that you finally shed your good-two-shoes imagejust like we did! Being decent is SOOOOOOO yesterday! Being a rebel iswhere it's at! Let's do lunch sometime!
Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan
So, Dan was looking for gravitas and serious credibility? If that wasindeed his goal then anyone who can read the comments on this commentboard can tell that he has failed.
90% of the comments are on the lines of "OOO La La", "Hubba Hubba","OMIGOSH I need a cold shower", "Drool" not to mention the ever popular"Squee!"
Serious credibility and gravitas does NOT EQUAL nudity. There are otherroles he could have chosen that would have been different from HarryPotter and established him as a serious actor that have nothing to dowith posing naked.
He chose a project that would purposely shock and/or titilate his fanbase. And he clearly succeeded. Kudos to him on that one. Britney &Lindsay WERE congratulating him afterall.
Oh, and are you also going to claim that his appearance on Extras wasalso chosen to increase his serious credibilty and gravitas? Because,you know, nothing says serious like spewing 4 letter words and playingwith condoms.
The girl is naked too. You know in movie 7, that girl is gonna be Ginny
dirty...dirty...dirty...but i like it! Wish we had pics of Tom Felton,ah well. I was kinda shocked when i saw it, and that's been goin'through my head ALL MORNING! This was me all through my morningclasses...."First Period - Dan is so hot, and so nude....Second Period- Dan, is so hot, and so nude....Third period - I have to tell this tomy friends at lunch about Dan being so hot, and so nude....FourthPeriod - The girl on Dan's back 'Jill'...Ginny will be on Harry's backin movie 7....fifth period at lunch - OH MY GOD! Did you see thosesteamy pictures of Daniel Radcliffe?! Aaaaah!....and so on. That was myday at school. I swear...yesterday when i saw those pics i wasshaking.....Now why do I have a feeling that movie 7 is gonna be ratedR?! LoL....Yeah I'm a crazy 7th grader.....But that's been on my mindall day!
"The man in the jean photos looks like a man who can destroy Voldemortto me. Up until now I had wondered if Daniel was going to be powerfulenough to pull it off. With the amount of strength and heat emanatingfrom these photos it doesn't look like it is going to be a problem."
AMEN. That young man in those pics is not only drop dead gorgeous, hehas danger written all over him. If Dan can project deep intensity ofemotion in just a photoshoot, what would the real stage performance belike?
"But calling this nudity trash, or immoral, is also wrong in our eyes;it looks like it's going to be a very classy production, and honoringit as such is important". Posted by melissa
It might be immoral in your eyes or others but it is in some otherpeoples. People have different values. As to my view on this wholething. To be a good actor, you have to be convincing in pretty muchevery role you play. Dad is doing this to get out of the harry potterlabel, and that is stupid. Why do movies like harry potter if you don'twant it to be known for it. Anyways that is my view. Don't attack me.
To quote Bruce Willis's character from Moonlighting: "Oh yeah, I forgotthere's a difference between nudes and nakes - nakes have staples inthem."
And everyone carries on and on and on about how the production isn'teven ABOUT nudity, nudity has NOTHING to do with it, and yet everysingle promotional picture & poster has someone nude or close to it.
Brooklyn_Brimstone - I never said I HATED Dan. I'm very sorry that hehas turned into the "Oh My Gosh I am so stereoptyped into the nerdygoody-goody role, what can I do to shock people."
I was really hoping that being a movie star away from the Hollywoodscene that he could avoid that. I was wrong, and I'm sad, that's all.
"Newsflash to parents: what your children watch, read and do is yourresponsibility not Dan's or Jo's and you don't get to tell other peoplewhat to write or read or what to act in."
Half right. This is harry potter website, parents let their childrenvisit "harry potter" websites like this one, mugglenet, hpana etc. Yeta child visiting these sites are exposed to these naked pictures. Howcan you blame parents for that. This is supposed to be a save and funwebsite for children to come and satisfy their hp needs. Parents wouldhave to make the choice to not let their children come to leaky ormugglenet anymore if they don't want them to see these pictures. Isthat fair to the kids or the parents? They didn't have to put thepictures on these sites. Anyone who wanted to see it could have gone toDan's site or equus'site. That is not telling people what to write orlook or do. These sites should have been responsible knowing that thereare children that come to their sites.
Dont't forget MuggleNet...it's all there.
But that aside isn't it always amazing to learn: Sex is bad but murder is okay?
Before I close that: Please, please turn of light if your children change...they could see themselves naked and feel all dirty about that too.
I love this fandom and if it is just for the LOL
