Don't Worry, We'll Get to the New Catching Fire Portraits. But First Let's Discuss Oprah's "Tig Ol' Bitties"

If that sophomoric headline intrigues or upsets you, please take it up with actor, and ex-best friend of Tony Stark, Terrence Howard. He's co-starring with the Oprah Winfrey and it seems their love scene was quite the experience. One wonders if the set was cold as a witch's teat. (Uproxx)

While we're on the subject of the unnecessarily offensive, it seems like award-winning author and noted anti-gay bigot Orson Scott Card just can't catch a break. I'm sure he's crying crocodile tears as his butler rolls him around in a big pile of money he got for finally agreeing to an Ender's Game movie. (Comics Alliance)

Ugh. Let's wash that filth down with this, well, radass poster for The Beasts of the Southern Wild. I haven't seen the movie yet, but this and everything involving star Quvenzhané Wallis and the Oscars makes me regret that decision. (Super Punch)

Just in case that wasn't refreshing enough, artist Warren Hayes has the perfect chaser.

Yes, that is Deadpool made of shotgun shells. Why wouldn't it be? (Topless Robot)

Most fans of Dan Harmon's "Community" know that the always-refreshing Bill Murray was the ultimate dream to play Joel "Jeff Winger" McHale's estranged papa. Since that can never be -- though James Brolin is admittedly no slouch -- here are 10 other TV shows Bill Murray could guest star in. My favorite is "Happy Endings" because I'm a glutton for dashed hopes. (WG)

Speaking of watching your favorite things crushed by the weight of unrealistic expectations, film critic David Denby thinks Hollywood is pretty determined to "murder" The Movies. He's not exactly wrong, but I wish he'd used all that space discussing more recent examples of great movies that studios use to clamor for instead of focusing on Hollywood's distant past. No, Avatar does not count. (TNR)

Okay, enough stalling, let's get to those Catching Fire character portraits, shall we? This is Pajiba Love, after all, and there's nothing I love about The Hunger Games more than Elizabeth Banks as Effie. It's only mostly ironic, too.

And here's Haymitch, Cinna, and Caesar for good measure. Apparently, more were released every four hours starting at some point yesterday afternoon. So, by now, you can probably see all of them. How's the future up then? (/Film)

Hey, the future and the distant past (of a galaxy far, far away)? That sounds familiar...

An intrepid individual has done the research and created an infographic determining which side ultimately wins in the interminable Star Wars vs. Star Trek debate. It's a logical conclusion, but where's the heart, you green blooded Vulcan? (TrekNews)

And now, it's video time! It's a brief teaser for LiquidTV's upcoming project with Jim Mahfood, comic artist and illustrator probably best known for his work on Clerks: The Comic Book. There will also be a short film from Johnny the Homicidal Maniac and "Invader Zim" creator, Johnen Vasquez. However, that project will feature his comic creation that shares a name with that word that begins with "Squ" and ends with "ee" that we can't say anymore, so it's probably best there isn't a video for that yet. Enjoy!


Rob Payne also writes the comic The Unstoppable Force, tweets on the Twitter, tumbls on the Tumblr, and his wares can be purchased here.

    Uma... Oprah.
    A match made.

  • Falstaff

    Is that Uma beside O? Look upon my works, ye mighty, and despair.

  • Uma? Oprah. Oprah...? Uma.

  • logan

    Those tig ol bitties would be nice if they weren't attached to Oprah.

  • idiosynchronic

    This instantly shouted Pajiba at me, and not in a good way:

    About Anne Hathaway:<quote>"Then, somehow, women seem to have decided to hate her. Perhaps because it feels like she betrayed us. We liked her before she lived on two squares of oatmeal paste a day to lose a massive amount of weight. And before every interview seemed to revolve around her weight loss. That was also before she began actively and obviously trying to make herself more "likable."</quote>

  • TheOriginalMRod

    I wonder if Terrence Howard said something like that before he was not asked back to the Iron Man franchise.

  • minxy

    I bet Oprah wishes they would have replaced Terrence Howard with Don Cheadle on a bed of rice.

  • TheKoiPolloi

    Oh. Terrence Howard. Of course it would be.

  • Pajiba_Pragmatist

    Is it just me, or is Woody Harrelson looking like Keith Urban in that poster?

  • Frank Berrodin

    Sup Oprah

  • Bert_McGurt

    How many pairs of leather pants do you guys think Lenny Kravitz owns? I'm betting it's dozens*. I mean, you have to own them right? Leather rental pants is a great idea for a band name, but that's about it. Jebus, Lenny probably single-handedly (or, more appropriately, double-leggedly) keeps about eight dry cleaners in business in LA alone.

    *And that's not even counting the chaps (which I'm assuming are a**less by definition).

  • NateMan

    I appreciate Chris Sprouse's decision to leave the artistry of the comic to someone else. It's not OSC's resistance to gay marriage that's the problem; he doesn't have to get gay married if he doesn't want to. His persistent and public attacks against the institution and his work with NOM to keep bigotry alive and well is. OSC has every right to believe and say anything he wants. And we, as consumers, have the right to decide if we want to give him our money, and encourage others to do the same. And I choose not to give him any of my hard-earned (or not, depending on the day) cash. There are much more talented authors out there who aren't so vehemently and publicly opposed to things I believe are right.

  • Well said. It is extraordinarily fun to make "bigot" an inarguable part of his introduction, though.

  • NateMan

    Absolutely. Dude's an ass. My personal favorite is Dan Savage's choice of title: He always refers to him as "Hateful Homophobe Orson Scott Card".

  • Kballs

    Let's call him The Gay Fucker(-over).

  • Pinky McLadybits

    I need that Deadpool art. NEED. It would totally tie my...something in the house together.

  • Kballs

    Wait, do you offer to tie things together as a proclamation of your desire for things all the time? I've never heard of this. Lemme try . . .

    I'd tie my dog's tits together to get my hands on that Deadpool poster.

    Huh. You might be onto something . . .

  • Pinky McLadybits

    I would tie my dogs' balls together to get my hands on that Deadpool art. Zero, Wallace, c'mere, boys!

  • In all seriousness, that was total Pink-bait.

  • Green Lantern

    Agreed.

  • Pinky McLadybits

    It worked!

  • mswas

    I IMMEDIATELY thought of you with that one.

  • NateMan

    My wife would kill me. And it'd be worth it.
