Real Ben Lyons!

Those of you who followed the link to Erik Childress' page about Ben Lyons yesterday will already know by now that there is a new player in the "Ben Lyons Hate Storm". This one is BenLyonsforreal, a fake-Lyons Twitter account that is pretty damn funny.

I actually first found out about this Twitter page--is it called a page, like a Facebook/MySpace page?--from Ben Lyons himself, who "Tweeted" about it to let people know that it was an imposter. Not sure why he thought we wouldn't figure that out ourselves--all he really did was let us know about this Twitter-er, who we very well may have never heard of otherwise.

Anyway, here are my favorites "Tweets" so far:

  • I gave 17 Again a rating of "rent it" because it's easier to talk about how cute Zach Efron is when you're in your own home.

  • State of Play is an amazing movie about staying relevant in newspapers...LOL/JK, who reads newspapers? It's like twitter for geezers.

  • Who remembers Gummybears? That'd be a great film! Gummybears: Premiering here and there...and everywhere.

  • Fast and Furious should be renamed "Best and Bestestest". It took literally dozens of people to make that movie!

  • Inglourious Basterds is going to be a riveting thrill ride about men transformed by mustaches. Best WWII movie ever!

  • Many people call me a visionary. I respond with, "are you famous? let's take a picture together"

  • I'm a movie dude! What the fuck does that mean? I don't know but it's better than being some fat fuck who's partner is a dead bald fuck

I'm really looking forward to see this movie ever since I saw the trailer on TV (you can watch it at

Hate Affleck, but I think this might actually be a good role for him. Russell Crowe almost always delivers. Also, the trailer has a great song, "Unstoppable" by Minutes Til Midnight that does a great job of setting the mood. So yah, personally I'm way excited for this film.

Hey Scott Ben mentioned you on his twitter page. Someone asked him what he thought about the website trying to stop him and he said:

"i'm happy he watches everything I's pretty funny to me. so far his site isn't working, it's only fueling the machine!"

Then later he added:

"it is starting to get a little obsessive and creepy. i'm still working and having fun, so what has this weirdo accomplished?"

What do you have to say about that?

It's an honor just to be mentioned. I doubt, however, that this site is "only fueling the machine."

State of Play as a BBC mini-series is the one which should be praised.

That's one of the most disrespectful things he could possibly say. Ben Lyons is a fucking joke. Roger Ebert is 100 times the reviewer Ben Lyons will ever be, and the low blow about Siskel is disgusting and twisted.

Just for the record, that wasn't Ben Lyons saying that but rather "BenLyonsFoReal," Ben's recently demised Twitter impersonator.
