    Sorry fikus, but that crossed the line between homage and self-serving train wreck for me. It was a bad idea from the start and wound up more of a "look at me, I'm Emma Stone" than anything. Would...

    The Pussy Riot panel was totally worthless at Riot Fest. Their participation was probably about 10% of the panel, otherwise it was Henry Rollins listening to himself talk (instead of moderating).
