Are You Tired Of This Face? Ryan Gosling Thinks You Are And That Maybe We Should Take A Break

By Jasmine Markes | Pajiba Love | March 21, 2013 | Comments ()


GQ's cover story on Jimmy Fallon is pretty well-timed in light of the news that he'll most likely be replacing Leno on "The Tonight Show" soon. (GQ)

Hey Girls and Guys, I think Ryan Gosling is breaking up with us. (Vulture)

If you haven't read it yet, Wil Wheaton's touching Facebook story will make you weep buckets of kittens. (WG)

Comedian Rob Delaney explains what March Madness is. Hint: It involves more madness than basketball and the Lord of the Rings vs. Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants showdown you've always wanted. (Rob Delaney)

Anne Donahue hilariously lists 20 Lessons We Gained from (500) Days of Summer, including a personal favorite: "Hall and Oates is everything." Amen. (Hello Giggles)

Finally, a 2D cartoon bag I can fit all of my ridiculously large mallets and anvils in. (BioTV)


And now, the folks behind the "Arrested Development" documentary would like some of your sweet, sweet Kickstarter monies. (Deadline)

It's no secret that studio executives are completely clueless, as their notes show. (Flavorwire) But man, these guys really hated Blade Runner. (Unreality)


This list of 40 Movies turning 20 would go nicely with a can of Ensure and box of saltines. (BF)

Hey, you guys remember that Jessica Chastain played a pregnant lady on "Veronica Mars"? Well, she wants in on that movie, too. (Twitter)

Baby name drama can get bitch cutting real quick, y'all. (STFU, Parents)

We have real phasers now, people! I won't have to make my own sound effects anymore when I pull my headband down over my eyes and pretend to be Geordi. (Blastr)

What do you do when you're a billionaire with nothing but time on your hands? Why, you dig up F-1 engines from the Apollo mission out of the Atlantic, of course. (BoingBoing)


You don't need to be billionaire to have this slice of TV memorabilia. If you're down in the ABQ and and have $500 burning a hole in your pocket like acid through a bathtub, you could own Jesse Pinkman's 1984 Toyota Tercel 4WD as seen on "Breaking Bad." That is, if you haven't spent it all on meth already. (Neatorama)

Speaking of meth, allegations against Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash have resurfaced, including some involving a "crystal meth sex party." I can't help but hear that in the Elmo voice, because if it did happen (and I'm not saying it did), he had to have used the voice, right? How could you not? (Geekosystem)

"The women that we feature in the magazine are ornamental. That is how we see them." That's a quote from Alex Bilmes, the editor of Esquire UK. Please direct your rage appropriately. (Gawker)

Mercy. If I ever hear anything about Mister Rogers doing anything worse than jaywalking, I will officially quit this world. He would have been 85th yesterday. Here are 35 delightful facts about him to counter that Elmo news.

    Can't wait for March 27th and Minelli-vaginbows

  • cgthegeek

    Gosling is certainly free to take a break. I just think it's interesting these "breaks from acting" usually follow a series of duds. No one ever has a blockbuster movie and/or wins an Oscar and says "I've lost perspective on what I'm doing."

  • kucheza

    Re: Esquire, if you're going to admit this, can you also admit you are a "lad's mag" just as much as Cosmo is a "women's magazine" and then explain why you are not characterized as such? (see

  • Mrs. Julien

    Mr. Rogers had a kind and beautiful soul. I clearly remember the day when I was five years old and I turned off his show because it was boring. Please don't stone me.

  • My mom has told me I thought Mr. Rogers was boring, too. I remember wondering why he was taking SO LONG to change his shoes. I still think he is a lovely man who has done wonderful things for children, but that doesn't change the fact that I thought his puppets were kind of creepy and I really wanted him to pick up the pace.

  • googergieger

    To be fair the voice over was shite in Blade Runner. Beautiful world created that you didn't know much about, but movie itself is pretty effin overrated.

  • linnyloo

    Mr. Rogers is a truly incredibly awesome person. We used to write him Christmas stories, and he'd write back every time, and he'd say, "I remember the story you sent me last year. You are growing up so wonderfully, and I am so proud of you." He is my personal hero, and one of the best humans ever. Basically.

    My favorite story about Mr. Rogers (hand to god, this happened!) -- my little sister was incredibly shy and didn't pay attention as often as she could due to hearing and attentional issues. A teacher got really angry at her because she didn't write her name at the top of a test (I guess it had happened enough times before to really tick this teacher off...) and the teacher called up my sister in front of the class, yelled at her, humiliated her, and ripped up her paper. She was in second grade.

    My mom got white-hot furious, and she read an editorial written by Mr. Rogers about the importance of respecting a child's work, and she wrote him and told him what happened, and that she was at a loss as far as what to tell this teacher.

    A few weeks later, the teacher approached my mom and said, "I got a letter from Mr. Rogers." He wrote her personally, and told her in his kind and gentle way about why she should change her teaching approach. My mom said, "I just didn't know what to say to you." The teacher replied, "Well, if Mr. Rogers tells you that you need to change, you listen."

    That bag photo is killing my brain.

  • Nicolae

    I love that you impersonate Geordi with your headband.

  • Don Juan de Markup

    Of course Esquire sees women as being ornamental. If you've spent 5 minutes looking at that rag any time in the last 10 years you know that the editorial opinion there would have to be that females are icky and they have no other possible purpose other than ornamentation.

    I love the notes but I guess all that it would have taken to get Pris and Rachel naked would have been a single line about more tits and ass. Seriously though, Scott always claimed the voice over narration was forced on him and in the director's cut it was removed but judging from the notes the producers were the ones the ones that actually hated it. Maybe Scott made it intentionally bad so they'd let him take it out.

  • If a person told me that their name was 'Jagger Atreyu' I couldn't help it--I'd laugh in their faces. So fucking hard. And tell them why I'm laughing, and tell them their parents are awful.

    fred rogers was a goddamned national treasure.

  • Tina

    I'll bet "more tits" is ALWAYS on studio notes.

  • If it's not, it should be.

  • Mrs. Julien

    I'm pretty sure it's always implied.

  • Boothy K

    I will be using the Vangelis argument from now on whenever I don't like a song or sound track...Priceless.

  • e jerry powell

    Ryan Gosling doesn't get to break up with me until I have kissed him into a coma.

  • e jerry powell

    Why do I suspect that that bag comes with a pair of cat ears?

  • protoformX

    I worked with a guy who apparently had two personalities and when the other one woke up "she" would wear cat ears and speak as femininely as he could. It was an interesting workplace, at least in that first year.

  • e jerry powell

    Mind-controlled necomimi are the worst.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    don't make me google necomimi. I'm at work.

  • e jerry powell

    You put the cat ears on your head and it's like a really obnoxious Mood Ring. ON YOUR HEAD.

    Necomimi (猫耳) is literally "cat ears" in Japanese.

    Did I mention that I hate the fuck out of cutesy moe anthropomorphic bullshit?

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I don't really blame the UK Esquire editor. It doesn't sound like he's saying that's what he thinks of women, period - just that's what the magazine uses them for. And is anyone truly shocked by this? Are any of the actresses who posed bent over wearing only a bra, roller skates and a pigtails surprised?

  • Archie Leach

    Wholly fucking shit! I didn't know what a fantastic year for the movies 1993 was!...... though there were a few clinkers in there.....

  • Kballs

    I also love Vangelis. I'm not picky about shaved or not, just bring it on over here ladi----what's that? Oh. OHHHH!


  • Slash

    Coincidentally, I watched "Blade Runner" about a week ago (the director's cut, apparently). And you know, the music is a pretty big part of why I love that movie. Not 50%, but maybe 20%.

    As for why Vangelis was so fucking popular then, he also did the music for "Chariots of Fire," which came out in 1981 (and for which he won an Oscar). Maybe that had something to do with it.

  • Slash

    RE the Esquire guy: You know, I usually appreciate it when someone is honest about what they do. I may not admire that they do it, but I admire when someone has the guts to cut through the bullshit and just admit it: "Women are just tits and ass to us, that's it. They help us sell magazines, which is our job. Deal with it."

    He could have just said what they all (other magazine editors, including the "women's" magazine editors) say: "We deeply respect women for their intelligence, wit, blah blah blah bullshit" but we all know that shit isn't true. When half your magazine is pictures of tits and ass, it really isn't a secret what they're there for.

    I for one appreciate someone who respects me enough not to fucking lie right into my face and expect me to go along with it. The guy doesn't deserve a medal or anything, but he at least gets credit for candor. Just because it's something we don't want to acknowledge doesn't make it less true.

  • I had pretty much the exact same reaction to that. I was all ready to comment and here I find someone has already typed it out for me. I should start checking this site earlier in the day, that way it might cut down on people stealing my genius.

  • ERM

    It is always helpful when assholes identify themselves as assholes, but it doesn't make them less of assholes.

  • Natallica

    They hated Blade Runner... but damn they loved Vangelis!

  • Bert_McGurt

    The mid-80's Tercel wagon was a surprisingly reliable piece of machinery. As long as half the rear axle didn't come off while tooling down the highway.

  • The mid-80s Corolla hatchback was also incredibly reliable. Mine finally gave up the ghost at 295,000 miles (plus a few).

  • zeke_the_pig

    Those studio execs sure had a hard-on for Vangelis huh? 'Needs more Vangelis!' 'Where's the Vangelis music?!' 'Does this have to star Harrison Ford? Why not Vangelis?'

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Vangelis and tits, apparently, are what make a great 80s sci-fi movie.

  • Uncle Mikey

    Or '90s band name

  • Amy

    I'm not tired of him. I'm tired of his annoying as fuck fans though.
