Presumably you Starbuckians have moved on from Pumpkin Spice to Gingerbread Latte (and hey, my neighbors got those Christmas lights right up—the night after Halloween!), but I’m guessing there’s no more gingerbread stuff in your drink than there is pumpkin. Hint: 0% (Videogum)

The bad news is, Sir Ian McKellan was mistaken for a bum in Melbourne, Australia. The good news is, he made a buck. (Uproxx)

Let’s face it; we love both physical books and e-readers for different reasons; add these 11 Lost Literary Classics You Can Download for Free to the e-reader column. (Vulture)

Won’t someone think about the toilets? Actually, someone did—and designated a National Toilet Day. Having spent much time in the woods with nary a square (never mind a spare), I’ll have to agree toilets are pretty cool. Here are 5 Reasons World Toilet Day is Awesome. (Mental Floss)

It’s true: This blogger’s geektastic photoshoot of his mom will make your day. (The Mary Sue)

The video for Lily Allen’s new single Hard Out Here has dropped, and it seems like she (like everyone else) might have a thing or two to say about Miley and Robin Thicke. (via Dlisted)

Now wash that twerk right outa your brain with Mad Men’s ever so fashionable Kiernan Shipka. I do wish she’d share her stylist with Christina Hendricks. (Go Fug Yourself)

JLaw is everywhere right now; including on the December cover of In Style; the interview that covers her love of food and children, but not diet and exercise—and don’t even ask about marriage. (Celebitchy)

Is it a mop, or Lady Gaga? In the latest SNL promos, Kenan Thompson can’t seem to tell. (Warming Glow)

The “Golden Age of Television” certainly didn’t end with Breaking Bad. In a continuing series that compares the standards, Sons of Anarchy is examined. (Unreality)

After those dirty rats told us Alex Vause would only return for one episode of Orange Is the New Black’s second season, now we’re hearing Laura Prepon will appear in four of thirteen episodes, and she’s negotiating for season 3. Everybody dance! (Buzzfeed)

Guillermo del Toro is working on Justice League Dark (featuring The Demon, Spectre, John Constantine, Deadman, Etrigan, Zatanna, Madame Xanadu and Floronic Man), which will be part of an “entire DC universe,” according to the director. (Slashfilm)

Rupee, who was rescued from a dump in India, is the first dog to trek to Mount Everest. Pretty damned cool. (Raw Story)

Cindy Davis, (Twitter) would have dropped at least a ten spot into Sir Ian’s hat.

Comments Are Welcome, Jerks Will Be Banned


  • Berry

    Hmm. Some of the entries on that Vulture list kind of stretch the definition of lost a little, Burney and Montaigne at least. I think. But the novel I would kill to find as a free download is Charles Maturin's Melmoth the Wanderer. Guttenberg doesn't have it, but I should probably keep looking.

  • Bert_McGurt

    Justice League Dark by Guillermo del Toro might actually be an excellent choice for DC's phase 1 films. The property dovetails well with the director and it's something a bit different than what Marvel's up to. It'll help that they won't be too constrained by previous characterizations either, since the characters aren't as well known as the OG Justice League and any previous films are old enough (Swamp Thing) or patently disavowed enough (Constantine) to be overlooked.

    At this point I think it behooves Warner and DC to pull back the reins a bit on films of their more well-known characters and get some purchase with some lesser-known characters. Use del Toro's film to launch a Black Adam movie, for example. Or make a film noir-type detective movie around Martian Manhunter and then have him act as sort of the DC's Nick Fury, recruiting folks to form the Justice League. Trying too hard to directly copy Marvel's formula won't pay off.

  • BlackRabbit

    Hell, do what Marvel hasn't yet and do a "minority" hero. Black Lightning!

  • foolsage

    Hulk is minority. Hulk always alone. Nobody understand Hulk. Only Abomination look like Hulk, and Abomination annoying. It not easy being green.

    Slightly less tongue-in-cheek, the Falcon (aka Captain America's other sidekick) will be in the new Cap film. Sidekicks aren't the same as mainstream heroes though, I'll preemptively agree.

    The Justice League Dark is magically-themed, so Black Lightning doesn't really belong there. He'd arguably fit well in a number of other places though, and I'd like to see him onscreen. Cyborg and Mr. Terrific are also both solid team players though that can show up in a number of places Justice-related (be it a League or Society).

  • Don't forget Apache Chief, or that samurai guy who could turn his lower half into a tornado.

  • Ben

    The problem with that is it would require DC to not be staggeringly, butt fuckingly awful. This is a company that can't manage to get a fucking Wonder Woman movie together but is developing a show based on god damm Hourman?

  • Bert_McGurt

    That's part of what I meant, incidentally. The Rock would obviously play Black Adam, because that would be perfect. And yeah, he's usually green but Martian Manhunter in human guise would definitely be a black man as far as I'm concerned, someone like Eamonn Walker?

    I have always had a soft spot for Black Lightning though, so I wouldn't say no to that either!

  • BlackRabbit

    He was on Smallville and was awesome. MM would be even tougher than Superman to put in a movie, but as a "Nick Fury" ringleader it could work.

  • Bert_McGurt

    Yeah, too many ridiculously powerful dudes. And for all they were (which I enjoyed), Nolan's Batman films weren't much on the actual DETECTIVE work. John Jones would slip into that role nicely.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Lady Gaga is really making me think of Brittany Murphy in those promos.

    That Lily Allen video is confusing me...It's not successfully walking the line of parody for me on the backup dancers.

  • loo shag brolley

    Yeah, It's a head scratcher. Lyrically she makes a good point; a little on-the-nose maybe, but hey, it's Lily Allen- lady dials direct. But if the visuals are trying to make some ironic point, it gets lost in the fact that Allen's far more clothed than the dancers, which kind of makes the video just as objectifying as all the other videos and NOW I NEED A DRINK.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Maybe if they were here pasty white ass cheeks slo-mo rippling in the high-powered wind...

    Because unfortunately, if she thinks that set up is so extreme as to be commentary, she hasn't been watching enough videos.

  • Brenton

    After the wreck that was Pacific Rim, who the fuck cares what Guillermo del Toro is up to?

  • semiotheque

    I will build a giant, city-sized robot, find and train a psychic-compatible co-pilot, and pick up a container ship like a baseball bat.

    I will fight you.

  • crispin

    You have no sense of adventure, sir.

  • lowercase_ryan

    Everest is no place for a GD dog. Jesus christ people.

  • kirbyjay

    Suppose it's better than an Indian ditch, but I agree.

  • The owner seems pretty concerned over how he would do--she made preparations in case it was too much.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/new...

  • lowercase_ryan

    ok I get that but I still have a problem with it. idk

  • Joe Grunenwald

    Is Lily Allen's agent in that video supposed to look like Saul Goodman? Because that works really well.

  • BlackRabbit

    Hee hee. Floronic Man. I even know who that is and it STILL made me chuckle as if I was five.

  • Green Lantern

    Jason Woodrue, baby. Jason Woodrue.

  • Joe Grunenwald

    Why in the world would they use Floronic Man and not Swamp Thing?

  • foolsage

    Swamp Thing's pretty mystical; it might be hard to explain to newbies what the hell the Green is all about, while letting the other characters get their own screen time. Floronic Man's easier to explain.

    That's all I can come up with. Swamp Thing is a vastly superior character in all respects except that he's harder to explain.

  • The source mentions, but Wiki does not--so, I'm not certain.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J...

  • JJ

    What? The Wiki does mention both:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J...
    And seeing as it's Wikipedia, let's go with the source as likely being more accurate.

  • Yes, under "unknown status." So, not sure if it will be in the film.

  • Bert_McGurt

    The source does mention Swamp Thing. I think it just got missed here is all.

  • Ben

    Swamp Thing has his own solo comic going on that is pretty involved (And doing weird cross over things with Animal Man last time I read it) and with how the story is playing out it wouldn't really work to put him in a team.

  • foolsage

    Swamp Thing usually has his own agenda, which overlaps only a tiny bit with what everyone else wants to do, for that matter.

  • JenVegas

    I just saw Sir Ian in Godot on Broadway last night and, you know what? The costumes were SO GOOD that I really thought I could smell him and Sir PStew from way up in my cheap seats. I can see why someone would mistake him for a bum.

  • Mrs. Julien

    How were the performances?

  • JenVegas

    So good. So SO good. Like, no one should even bother staging this show again ever, it was that good. Sir Ian puts on a flawless,doddering, lower class accent, Sir PStew was suitably lewd. Billy Cruddup knocked Lucky's crazy monologue right out of the park too and I don't even LIKE Billy Cruddup. Totally worth every cent and every moment spent in the incredibly uncomfortable seats at The Cort.

  • Berry

    I'm also jealous. And might be small enough to hate you a little bit for that right now. Stupid Atlantic and stupid expensive air-travel.

  • kirbyjay

    are you dissing the ocean? Is that a first around here?

  • Berry

    I AM! It's ugly, and stinky, and its mama is so fat.

  • Maguita NYC

    So jealous!

  • JenVegas

    There are still tickets available! Go get you one! I am, like, completely house poor right now but it was so worth it. I don't care if I'm eating PB&J sandwiches at work for a month.
