Happy Friday, Everyone. I'll Be In My Bunk.

By Joanna Robinson | Pajiba Love | June 15, 2012 | Comments ()


Our fearless leader (he of the unhealthy Tom Cruise obsession) is currently enjoying the sweet musical misery that is Rock Of Ages. So you can share a little in his pain, here's a fantastic round-up of 80s Hair Band Style by the Fug Girls. Nobody does it better. (Vulture)

Someone over at the Shiznit did exactly what I was dying to do with that VF/Paramount cluster*ck of famous faces, aka break it down to its most ridiculous components. Like why did they stick Zoe Saldana right next to Don Cheadle? Spread the color out in that sea of white! (The Shiznit)

You may have heard by now the story of this young girl who blogs under the impossibly cute name "Veg." While blogging about her school lunches in order to raise awareness about nutrition, she was briefly shut down by the school board for her actions. The good news is her photographic ban has been lifted and all the resulting media attention has caused a huge upswing in donations to her charitable cause of choice. The bad news? That some bureaucrats tried to censor a little girl who blogs under the name "Veg." (The Mary Sue)

How dare you accuse me of posting this interview with Anthony Mackie for the skimpy spandex-clad photos! I read Celebitchy for the articles! (Celebitchy)

I'll be the first to admit that I'm no aficionado when it comes to the technical side of filmmaking, but this Red One camera film test David Fincher shot with Leonardo DiCaprio is pretty neat stuff. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the Red One is among the first digital cameras to shoot with the same image quality as an analog camera...PLUS, I believe, the only lighting used in this scene was the match in DiCaprio's hand. Enjoy, film nerds! (Did The Director)

And for you book nerds, here's a nifty infographic of all of Ray Bradbury's predictions that came true. RIP, Ray. (Geeks Are Sexy)

And while we're on the subject of sci-fi, I have to share with you my unbridled enthusiasm and anticipation for the film adaptations of Neal Stephenson's "Snow Crash." I know, it's hard to do such a great book justice, but Attack The Block's Joe Cornish has signed on and, well, that man is a genius. I am so happy. (FSR)

That adorable header photo of Nathan Fillion smooching a spaceship? That's courtesy of the amazing QMx Facebook. They post the very best, including an adorable homage to Joss Whedon's murderous tendencies.

Speaking of adorable people, one of my favorite film bloggers, Matt Patches, got Emma Stone to reenact a) her favorite gif of Alan Rickman and b) the most famous gif of herself. The result? Puh-recious. (Matt Patches)

And while we're on the subject of Alan Rickman, I thought you anglophiles might enjoy a sketch of him jello-wrestling author Neil Gaiman. You're welcome!

Someone posted this the other day on the Pajiba Facebook and I have only just now stopped shuddering. That squid you're eating? Apparently it's making sex with your mouth. (Gothamist)

Speaking of film nerdery (as we were, remember?), someone has posted the color palettes from Wes Anderson's filmography. I want to live inside The Royal Tenenbaums palette. (Laughing Squid)

I ignored the first Guardians movie, mostly because I couldn't pronounce it. But, based on these character posters, the second one looks kind of rad. At the very least, I hope to see someone dressed as this Santa for Halloween. (Coming Soon)

And speaking of menacing bearded men, George RR Martin has voiced the fear we've all been nursing. That is "WHAT IF HE DOESN'T FINISH WRITING THE BOOKS IN TIME FOR THE HBO SERIES?!?!" Brian Byrd may have put that a little more eloquently than I did. Anyway, here are George's thoughts on the matter. (Blastr)

Finally, as the last minutes tick by during your workday today, take a sec to look at this rad clock video. It's fairly mesmerizing.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Baobabble

    An article about squid violating a woman's mouth, and then the next link is to The Laughing Squid?

    Well played, tentacled overlords. Well played.

  • Muhnah_Muhnah

    Dustin! If the next "For your Consideration" for the Pajiba 10 isn't Anthony Mackie, I'll cut a bitch. And by bitch, I mean you...in case that wasn't clear. Obviously I'm not calling you a bitch now, but I will if...you know what? Just start googling for his images and we can all just go ahead with our day.

  • Bernardo Leyte Cortés

    It's not just a spaceship. it's a firefly model 'serenity'

  • Noo

    The Shiznit have a little issue with what is a 'white' guy. Cause last time I looked John Cho and George Takei are not white and neither is Tommy Chong, Antonio Banderas, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu or Ben Kinglsey!

    They did get it right though that Karl Urban knows how to rock a suit and a waistcoat.

  • Pat C.

    So he's just kissing the rocketship? He's not drinking out of a really cool mug, or smoking out of a really cool bong? Darn.

  • I was very disappointed that it was not a firefly shaped bong he was taking a hit from. I already had my credit card out to order one.

  • DeadBessie

    Is one of those guys in the sketch supposed to look like Alan Rickman? Neither one looks like the Rickman to me.

    I want that Serenity model way more than a woman of my advanced years and limited income should. For that price it should come with Fillion's bicep still attached.

  • L.O.V.E.

    Happy Friday everyone. i am at an airport bar watching Euro 2012, and they got Arrogant Bastard and Racer 5.

  • Kiddo

    Mmmm, Racer 5. Now I'm thirsty.

  • L.O.V.E.

    I ordered an extra 22 for the flight (poored it into a bladder buster) and was flying high. 7% ABV

  • JoannaRobinson

    Seriously. Pour me some hoppy, frosty goodness.

  • DarthCorleone

    I'm confused. That owl movie that Zack Snyder directed has a sequel with Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny?

  • Sharon

    Nope. Guardians of Ga'Hoole is a book series about the owls. Someone's confused. These are totally unrelated.

  • JoannaRobinson

    Then I'm confused. I absolutely thought it was in the series.

  • Jezzer

    You think you're confused. I've been calling it "Guardians of Gilooly" in my head all this time. Apparently my version has owls, Santa, the Easter Bunny, and Tonya Harding.

  • lowercase_ryan

    and also: that's a Serenity Bong.

  • branded_redux

    It's a browncoat call.

  • TheOtherGreg

    I thought he was changing R2D2's life.

  • lowercase_ryan

    wow, your links are freaking top notch today. The Red One was way cooler than I anticipated, it really is cool. Also cool - Snow Crash. But seriously, go Cryptonomicon or go home.

    And why is Santa endorsing full sleeves now? It will only help to make them more mainstream and acceptable and if you have them I'm sorry big ups to you but I hate them!

  • TheFatling

    Baroque Cycle FTW!

  • Guest

    Martin: "We're also coming out with a big concordance called The World of Ice and Fire, which is about the whole history of Westeros and will be lavishly illustrated."

    !!!!! of rapture

  • Nymeria

    Oh goodness gracious, I don't have words to fully describe how happy that sentence made me.

  • John G.

    Martin said he's aware of the potential timing issues, and plans to ramp up work on the back half of the fantasy series

    Sounds like it's motivating him to work faster, so it's a good thing.

  • PaddyDog

    Sigh! I suppose I'll be the one to point out that as a Welshman, Rickman is not Anglo but Indo-European Celtic in origin. And then everyone will accuse me of being nitpicky.

  • Ender

    Wow, people really don't like nitpicky for some reason.

  • Kahntahmp

    Well, if you insist......
    (annoying kid voice:ON)

    ♪♫You're being nitpicky... You're being nitpicky...You're being nitpicky...♫♪

    (Annoying Kid voice: OFF)

  • RedAlbino

    From Wikipedia
    "Rickman was born in South Hammersmith, London"
    So, how is Rickman Welsh not English?

  • PaddyDog

    His parents are Irish and Welsh respectively so regardless of where he was born, he doesn't have an Anglo gene in his DNA (note I referred to his origins).

  • Sara_Tonin00

    "Anglo" doesn't mean "Anglo-Saxon" anymore. (How do you know his Irish & Welsh parents don't have any Anglo in them?)

  • Guest

    Homi Bhabha disapproves of this thread.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I had to look him up. That was not a reference I was expecting. But I don't get it. :(

  • Guest

    It's my very oblique way of saying I agree with you. :) /hybridity
