Alright my politicos, it's debate night. If every candidate and moderator is awake, it should be a fun time. This is my only political link today and, I don't care which side your aisle is buttered on, it's pretty perfect. (Romney Tax Plan)

If, however, verbal sparring ain't your thing, maybe you should check out the fights of a more physical kind over on "Sons of Anarchy" tonight. Joel McHale will be starting his guest run so you "Community" fans can put a Band-Aid on your achey-breaky heart. (WG)

While io9 has their usual glossy gallery of the very "best" cosplay from New York Comic Con (Lady Loki!!!)...

...I found myself enjoying this "worst" gallery from Mashable much more. Oh, portly dudes of the world, you rock on with your spandex-clad selves. (Mashable)

And while we're scoping out some of New York's finest in costume, check out this super dorky old photo of architects dressed as their signature buildings. Mainly I think they look like Daleks, but I'm no expert. (Retronaut)

Horror fans, go ahead and shriek your approval for the Film School Rejects "Scariest Movie" bracket. (FSR)

I can't believe we haven't posted this yet on the site, but, while we're shrieking, check out the teaser trailer for Chloe Moretz's Carrie remake.

And, lucky you, I've got a double dose of "Everyone Is Terrible." First of all, there's a new Gap shirt with the slogan "Manifest Destiny." I'm guessing everyone involved in this terrible idea slept through 5th Grade history. (GOOD)

And, elsewhere in America, some students in blackface reenacted the Chris Brown/Rihanna beating for a...PEP RALLY. Because nothing says school spirit like domestic violence. (CNN)

Allegedly this photo of Scarlett Johansson is supposed to represent The 90s. I dunno, I think she looks like Caitlin Moran. Click on the link to check out Keira Knightley, Mia Wasikowska and Rooney Mara representing other decades. (Celebitchy)

Who's clamoring for a new Ernst Goes To... movie? Is it you? ARE YOU TO BLAME FOR THIS? (Variety)

Hungry? Why wait for a rum-soaked journey in the desert to enjoy these Fear And Loathing cupcakes? (Neatorama)

Better yet! Do I have to wait until Halloween to try these flesh worms made from bacon and other disgusting snacks? Cause I sorta want flesh worms for dinner. (Neatorama)

Dear Internet, stop lying and pretending Jurassic Park couldn't scientifically happen. You can take that and all your other "facts" and shove them. (io9)

Finally, it's what you've all been waiting for, a goofy excuse to ogle Caprica Six. I know you've been missing her.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • BlackRabbit

    That Carrie trailer: shouldn't she be facing the other way at the end? She should be walking AWAY from the burning school, yes?

  • zeke_the_pig

    As the universal consensus seems to be, ScarJo's look is nowhere near 90's enough - there's a glaring lack of Christian Slater for a start - but I'll be damned if that look doesn't do it for me. Goth up every goddamn Hollywood starlet and zeke'll be a happy bunny. I mean pig. Fuck it, I'll be whatever they want me to be.

  • Dr. Cocksmith PhD

    I gotta say, the ads on this site are obnoxious enough to send me packing. Good lord. I know you need to make a buck, but at the risk of pissing off your readership.

    Let's do better, Pajiba.

  • Miss Laaw-yuhr

    I think you need to read this so that you understand why this site has those ads:

  • purplejebus

    I read that, but they can still do better. This site takes forever to load now on a mobile phone.

  • Devlin

    Keira Knightly's collarbones are scaring the daylights out of me(I think Keira kind of resembles Spike from Buffy), ScarJo looks like Debbie Harry (Blondie, I miss you!)...but still nowhere near as hot as Debby. Rooney????...still trying to place her look (Frances Mc Dormand?), Mia, oh Mia...what have they done to you?. Regarding ScarJo and her "90's" look....I was 24 when the decade began and 33 when it ended and I really don't think I see anything that represents the 90's. I didn't even see anything like this when I went to see Pearl Jam at Lalapalooza in 1992.

  • Devlin

    And that's "Debbie" not "Debby".

  • That is the hottest Scar-Jo has ever looked. Damn!

  • Fabius_Maximus

    But she has no pores!

  • GunNut2600 a former bartender/waiter in Baltimore, there were two groups of people I hated dealing with. One were the doctors/lawyer professionals who were terrible drunks and even worse tippers. The other were the Cos-players that would show up once a fucking year from their parent's basement. Like fucking clockwork, a mass of mouth breathing, costumed losers who obviously don't have the social ability to appear in public, let alone walk into a fucking bar, would swamp the downtown, packing every restaurant and bar for hours. Sounds great except they would sit there not ordering shit because they never had any money. Add in the simple fact that half of them are underage and don't understand they can't sit in the bar with the rest of their loser friends who aren't drinking. I not kidding in that I have been accused of being racist against Japanese people by a white teenage in full geisha makeup for refusing to risk ,my boss' liquor license.I would love to ship some of these assholes to Japan just to show them how much the Japanese REALLY appreciate the co-opting of their culture. From dealing with the smell of terrible body odor and rubber cement, to the morons who would fucking knock over kids and old people walking around oblivious with their obnoxious costumes, I fucking detested whatever the fuck they call that stupid event.

    You think I am kidding but that stupid Com thing would actually drop our receipts for the week. Usually we are doing anything to get people downtown but that weekend always sucked.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    You know, the Japanese would smile in a friendly seeming way, maybe congratulate them on their costumes if they are good, and then ignore them politely.

  • No...that would not happen. Hate to break it to you, but the Japanese, especially depending on where you are at and your gender, are not nearly as docile as depicted in TV and Film.

    Its a LOT better than it was in the 90's from when I first went over there. But if you have never traveled to the country, you will be quite shocked at their opinions of women and minorities in general.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    I wouldn't. I know about that stuff. I just don't think they will actually say it to your face if they don't like you.

  • You would be surprised. Japan, despite the stereotype, is a very xenophobic nation. They have actually gotten a LOT of flack over the years in the UN for their refusal to accept refugees for any reason.

    We are talking about a people that still shuns the survivors of the atomic bombings.

    This week, I am training a group of Hong Kong and mainland China employees. I work for a Japanese firm and my coworker in this endeavor is from South Korea.

    Needless to say we only talk about NBA basketball unless its directly related to the work.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Again, I know how xenophobic Japanese people can be. But do they actually tell that to your face?

  • Yup. They got no problem showing you your place when they want to. I mean hell, they got a major politicians going to a war memorial that includes class A war criminals, while China-Japan relations are at historical lows.

    If you walk into the wrong bar or neighborhood in Japan, you will get assaulted. And don't expect the police to give a shit.

  • Puddin

    My feet hurt! When did gum get so fancy? This elevator moves too fast!

  • Darn KIDS WITH THEIR ROLLER BOARDS ON MY SIDEWALK! YOU'LL BREAK YOUR NECKS! Murial...where's my cane??? I need to accost some hoodlems in the front yard!

  • firedmyass

    You seem... neat.

  • Miss Laaw-yuhr

    I'd like you to know that I tip well (despite not having one of those fancy high paying lawyer jobs)

  • JenVegas

    I was going to say that ScarJo was trying to pull off Johnette Napolitano's look from Concrete Blonde...but then I looked up pictures of Concrete Blonde and realized that a) I was wrong and b) I had no idea what Johnette Napolitano looked like until now....So now I'm trying to figure out who ScarJo looks like and who I thought Johnette Napolitano was until just now.

  • F'mal DeHyde

    You could cut bread with Knightley's collar bone.

  • John G.

    the dream of the 90's is alive in Scarlett!

  • Puddin

    well, she did date Jordan Catalano. Boom!

  • Damn, I don't care what anyone says about her, Keira Knightley can give face. She looks fucking fierce in that photo.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    And she could cut your throat with those clavicles.

  • Natallica

    And that coat she's wearing puts me in contact with my envious side in a dark, dark way.

  • ScarJo isn't wearing any flannel. 90s fail.

  • zeke_the_pig

    There's probably a skirt there somewhere, slightly torn of course.

  • The make-up, the hair, that tattoo that looks like an ankh?>>..Xfd.qlnk.Net

  • That pic had me all excited for a movie version of the Endless. The make-up, the hair, that tattoo that looks like an ankh? Oh, Death...

  • Quatermain

    Just when I thought Scarlett Johansen couldn't get any hotter, BAM! there she is, all looking like Amy Lee.

    Also, I'd buy one of those Manifest Destiny t-shirts just to tally up the amount of dirty looks I get vs. how many people think it's a band, but I'm not willing to pay 30$ for a t-shirt. I'm not sure if that makes me a better person or a worse person.

  • Jannymac

    Ahhh, the "Romney Tax Plan" snuck up and goosed me. That was pretty freakin' awesome...

  • Now I'm picturing what the X-Men movies would've been like if ScarJo had played Rogue.

  • TheOriginalMRod


  • carrie

    or Debby Harry (the singer)

  • As opposed to Debbie Harry, the night clerk at Sip-n-Snack. That movie was booooooooooring

  • Guest

    AH ha aaaa! I JUST lectured on Manifest Destiny and the "Ravenous" subtext to my class last week. Oh, Canadian students who already knew what MD means even though they never studied US history in high school: I love you all.

  • Tinkerville

    Given the fact that Scarlet's photo leaves out slap bracelets, midriff shirts, and those tiny half ponytails normally reserved for preschoolers, I'm saying it's invalid.

  • Guest

    I was a 20-something in the 90s, and somehow (or maybe because of this) slap bracelets passed me by. I had to google the damn things.

  • Natallica

    I had LOTS of them. On neon colors. You should thank your lucky stars they passed you by. Oh, and I also used to wear neon leggins all the time. Sorry, I need to go kiss my black denim pants now, be right back

  • Guest

    I thinking more Bride of Frankenstein meets Elvira... Is it not a Halloween picture thingy?

  • Scarlett Johansson wishes she was as cool as Caitlin Moran. That woman is my goddamn hero.

  • Yossarian

    I think she kind of looks like Kathleen Turner

  • Natallica

    Even more than the dinosaurs, I would love if one thing that its shown in the book but not in the movies could happen for real: genetic engineering allowed scientists to create a teeny tiny miniature elephant, that Hammond takes to meetings in a cage. Me wantee

  • Spare no expense!

  • Yossarian

    Opulence. He had it.
