People who get paid to recommend things recommend . . .

Last week I mentioned Bill Gates' megalomaniacal behavior. Today I find through a friendly informer that Ben Lyons continues in his quest to sell his soul to said megalomaniac. The online site The Daily Beast has a feature called "The Buzz Board: Smart People Recommend," which quotes Ben Lyons (and I think the Beast is being a bit creative with the term "smart people."):

I recommend Scene It? Box Office Smash for Xbox. It helps me improve my movie knowledge, and it's a lot of fun to play either alone or with some of the homies when they come over. With Xbox Live it downloads new questions all the time over the Internet, so no matter how many times I play it, it always has new puzzles and questions. The material is sometimes really challenging, even for someone like me who watches about 300 films a year. Even if you're not as big a fan of movies as I am, the anagrams and games within the game are a lot of fun. I challenge anybody who dares to step into The Lyons Den to a game of Scene It? on Xbox... Let's get it on!

This is not the first time Ben has blurbed for Scene It--a few months back he attached his name to a press release for the game.

I keep thinking Ben is going to back off some of his more egregious activities, but his continued breaking of this rule in Roger's Little Rule Book suggests otherwise.

This site upsets me in a way nobody else can understand. My Name Is Ben Lyons! I am not the Ben Lyons in question but it is still my name. How could someone with such a great name garner such dislike? How bothersome...

You should challenge Lyons to a game of Scene It!. Unless the questions are all about James Bond moviess released after 1995, I'll bet you could wipe the floor with his ass.

Yeah and how he once said that meeting the cast of the new 90210 show was "dope".

Ben Lyons has no right to pretend he is black. That should be against the law.
