Charming Potato Rolls His Way Onto The 20 Biggest Internet Crushes Of 2012 List

By Joanna Robinson | Pajiba Love | December 19, 2012 | Comments ()


There's an adorable photo of Obama and a small child circling the web today. It's from this fantastic series Time put up in October and every single photo warms my heart. (Time)

Another photo round-up, this time from Star Trek: Into Darkness, is guaranteed to cumber your batch. (Collider)

Speaking of Trekkies, where do you think Shatner would rank on this comparative round-up of Hollywood's shortest actors? I'm guessing he lands somewhere in Peeta territory. (Next Movie)

I, like you, am inclined to lick Joss Whedon's stylish yet affordable boots, but according to this article his original plan for The Avengers was, uh, crowded. Like, Spider-Man 3 crowded. (io9)

And in other disappointing comic news, check out a "Child's Treasury" of the worst Frank Miller panels. (io9)

Broadway talent (and erstwhile "Glee" villain) Jonathan Groff has been cast in Pixar's Frozen. That's not the big news. The big news is that I was GIVEN to understand that this movie would be based on my favorite Hans Christian Andersen story "The Snow Queen." Which would be AWESOME. Read the description. It ain't. The only thing that's the same is the winter weather. (Deadline)

Speaking of HCA, scholars believe they've discovered a new story. Possibly his first. It's, uh, it's about a candle, guys. (BBC)

This Internet Crush List is so nearly perfect it hurts. But whither The Obamas, Josh? Whither The Obamas. I guess Emma Stone will have to do. (Uproxx)

And to crush your crush boner, here is an infographic that will help you understand the structure of the Westboro Baptist Church. Why would you want to do that? Know thy enemy, folks. (Boing Boing)

Jasmine gave you part one of this Year In Pictures list on Monday. Here's part two to make you feel that much more insignificant in the grand scheme of things. (The Big Picture)

I'm not a fan of e-readers in general, but if you ARE going to gift one this year, please make sure to include this rad Necronomicon cover. What? It's better than giving your loved on a nectar nickel necktie. (Nerd Approved)

Finally, El Dustino has a loving tribute to teh 12 TV actresses you were most likely to see naked in 2012. I'd try to list all the other reasons "Shameless" is a good show, but I suspect you're not even listening anymore. (WG)

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    That Necronomicon e-reader cover looks cool, but I'm not paying 125$ for one. It's not -that- cool. Also, I liked Frank Miller's Batman, it was the most fun I'd had reading a comic book in years.

  • Blake

    Great list.

    My Internet Crush List for 2012: The Ladies - Jenna Louise Coleman, Dakota Blue Richards, Dreama Walker, Romalo Garai and Jane Levy.

    Zooey Deschanel? Is this 2001?

  • Blake

    And Matt Smith & Ben Winshaw for The Dudes.

  • JoannaRobinson

    I like your style.

  • duckandcover

    *best Frank Miller panels.

  • littlealbatross

    Number 10-Morena Baccarin, not Monica Baccarin. Sorry I had
    to point that out.

  • Patty O'Green

    Grazing through those Trek images I found myself shouting, "MICKEY SMITH!!!" Nice to see you, Noel Clarke.

    Petition to classify Westboro as a hate group and revoke their tax exempt status: https://petitions.whitehouse.g...

    I know they already have a bunch of votes and it may not accomplish anything, but it feels good and it gives me peace of mind to know that if the crap hits the fan that I'm on record as opposing those pieces of shit.

  • NateMan

    Wait. Westboro ISN'T classified as a hate group? How the FUCK hasn't that happened yet? Jesus H. Cthulhu, if there was ever a group that deserved to be there it's these assmonkeys.

  • e jerry powell

    Don't insult assmonkeys.

  • Three_nineteen

    Fun fact - I have still not seen anything either starring or featuring Channing Tatum. I thought I had, because I saw Cabin in the Woods, but that wasn't him. It was the guy who plays Thor, right? So now I have seen the guy who plays Thor in two things, but no Charming Potato. I'll have to tape Magic Mike when it's on pay cable.

  • I highly recommend Stop Loss. Just saw it recently and the guy can actually act.

  • e jerry powell

    Time to make the Tater into tots.

  • dizzylucy

    Lil' Spiderman - almost as good as Lil' Sebastian, but without the honorary degree from Notre Dame.

  • FrayedMachine

    So it's official. I cannot look at any gifs from magic mike without blushing furiously. Oh. my. goodness gracious.

    Edit: Apparently the same thing goes for Fassbender. oh my goodness.

  • Bert_McGurt

    That's some ominuous-looking flag folding going on in the Trek photos.
