The Internet has broken our own Daniel Carlson, who has discovered that anyone can submit Buzzfeed lists. He’s having a field day. Check out these essential lists:

6 Rocks That Totally Rock.

8 Sassy Colas that Know How to Keep It Sweet.

13 Benedict Cumberbatch GIFs that Are All the Same.

The 7 Sexiest Numbers.

7 Signs You Grew Up in Texas

Over the course of his career, Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul has been in some weird movies and television shows that you almost certainly don’t remember him from, and he’s sported some truly bizarre hair styling choices. (Uproxx)

Here’s an interesting twist on a old standby list: 5 movies that improved upon the books, according to the author. (Cracked)

My favorite defender on “SNL” reminds us that, though the show is losing a ton of male characters this year, the show is not in trouble. Stop saying it is. (HuffPo)

Here’s Spike Lee getting really pissed off when he’s questioned about his decision to use Kickstarter to finance a film, despite lots of evidence to suggest that he’s a very wealthy man. “F*ck the haters!” (The Playlist)

In defending Spike Lee’s Kickstarter, Matthew McConaughey talks about his favorite Spike Lee film, and Steven Soderbergh dropped $10,000 into the Kickstarter. Why don’t famous filmmakers just go, hat-in-hand, around to all their rich friends and ask for checks? All I know is, the Kickstarter model for wealthy filmmakers is not going to survive the backlash much longer. (IndieWire)

Hollywood is trying really hard these days to make Shailene Woodley happen, and by God, I hope they succeed. (GFY)

Which villainous role in a recent Marvel movie was Alec Baldwin offered, but declined? Let’s investigate. (Slashfilm)

Speaking of actors that turned down roles, Denzel turned down a big one, too (not that Brad Pitt role in Se7en, although that, too. This is a different, recent one). (Vulture)

I’m not sure what’s going on over on Celebitchy today, but I think it may be Unattractive Pictures of Celebrity Day, because they have managed to unearth the least flattering photos of Aniston, Clooney, Lohan, and Oh God, Cumberbatch. That one smarts. (Celebitchy)

Yeah?! Why are potato chip bags always half empty? (Mental Floss)

The Mummy reboot lost Len Wiseman as its director (oh. no. that. is. just. so. sad.) while the Scarface reboot gains a director. Ugh. (TheFilmStage)

I love you Romola Garai. No. Really. I love you, even if the above header photo kind of slightly maybe a little bit defeats the point you’re trying to make here. (The Guardian)

Andy Greenwald’s piece on the television violence probably had the opposite of the intended effect: Now I want to watch all of these shows. (Grantland)

Speaking of television shows, how many of the top 25 network and top 25 cable shows last week did you watch? Me? Zero. Half of them I’ve never even heard of. (WG)

I’m not going to disagree with the top choice on this list of the ten most bad-ass looking characters on television. (Unreality)
