Sean Parker (the dude from Napster and the one Justin Timberlake played in the Facebook movie), got married in a giant, elfin-inspired ceremony in a Californian redwood forest. Environmentalists got mad on the internet, and he wrote an impassioned response as long as anything J.R.R. Tolkien ever penned.
