In The First Images From Catching Fire Jennifer Lawrence Shows Off Her Best "Peeta, Please" Look

I heard a rumor that many of you East-y Coast-y types will be getting your first snow today. Here in California it's still somewhat toasty warmish but in honor of you who are about to shovel, I just want to say: it's a magical world, ol' buddies.

I must admit that even I succumbed to some Amazon deals over the weekend. I KNOW. Scully pointed out this hilarious "least helpful" tumblr of Amazon reviews to me. Truth be told, those headphones *are* a little penis-y. (Least Helpful)

"Sherlock" won't be back until 2014 (at the earliest). Let's all whip off our scarves dramatically in protest. (TMS)

But the show every *sshole loves to hate, "Girls," will be back in January. Here is the first look at the next season. I, for one, am delighted to see the return of Adam Driver, who became my favorite character last year. I'm also excited to see Andrew Rannells who is much better on "Girls" than he is on his own show, "The New Normal." (Entertainment Weekly)

Imagine your father wrote you a lengthy, scathing letter about how bitterly disappointed he is in you and your life choices. Now imagine that letter became the talk of the nation after it was printed for everyone to read. The father in question has given an interview to "The Telegraph" to confess he hasn't been a very good father. You think? (Telegraph)

Aaron Paul promises that we, the nation, will not be disappointed by the final season of "Breaking Bad." I love following Paul on Twitter mostly because it allows me to eye-drop on his bromance with Ewan McGregor. Which is adorable. (Warming Glow)

Some enterprising folks in Russia have built a 170 ft. trampoline in an ancient forest. That guy in the first photo? That's exactly who I imagined would be involved in building a 170 ft. trampoline in an ancient forest. (Knstrct)

If you thought Peeta as played by Josh Hutcherson was a little obnoxious in the first Hunger Games film, be prepared to further dislike him as he flails and splashes in the new arena in Catching Fire. Jennifer Lawrence, on the other hand, looks completely badass. As per ush. (KP)

The cast of "Parks and Rec" posed for GQ "Hollywood Squares"-style. Oh, sure, make the two pudgiest people share a square. (GQ)

NPR has an interesting, NPR-ish piece on the dark history behind nutmeg. Don't worry, NPR, we "American Horror Story" fans already knew the spice was bad news. (NPR)

"The Walking Dead"'s Governor aka David Morrissey (who is officially OFF my "Surprisingly Sexy" list after this week's episode) gives a great interview about what we can expect from the AMC show's season finale. (Vulture)

Finally, to make it all better, here's NPH with a lovely new web series involving puppets. (Don't think about Elmo, don't think about Elmo, don't think about Elmo.)

    I love the expression on Jennifer Lawrence's face,( it screams "please....don't fuck with me") and Lawrence looks extremely hot in the wetsuit!. Looking forward to Catching Fire!.

    "Some enterprising folks in Russia have built a 170 ft. trampoline in an ancient forest. That guy in the first photo? That’s exactly who I imagined would be involved in building a 170 ft. trampoline in an ancient forest."


  • BlackRabbit

    Also? Snow sucks.

  • Mrs. Julien

    1. Elmo is an Absolute Good. I REFUSE to have Elmo ruined for me. Kevin Clash, on the other hand, is an (allegedly) absolutely disgusting and morally reprehensible human being.

    2. Speaking as the daughter-in-law of a charming miserable judgmental bastard, I'm not surprised by that awful father's letter - just that he put it in writing.

    3. I was excited about the giant trampoline until I saw how narrow it was. I'd still manage to hurt myself... back to bogarting the bounce house at children's parties.

  • superasente

    So wait, you still found the Governor sexy when he was revealed to have a collection of jars with heads in them, brushed his zombified daughter's hair, and ordered the ruthless murder of National Guardsmen? You got creepy tastes, Robinson.

  • mswas

    I thought a 170 foot trampoline would be 17 stories in the air. Zweites Projekt, beginnen!

  • mairimba

    Was it in 'Pinky & The Brain' that they used nutmeg to make explosions?

  • mairimba

    Found it:

    Man, I miss that show.

  • Pajiba_Pragmatist

    ummm yeah, you may want to re-read the Telegraph article. Here's what he said about his bad parenting:

    He insisted that he had been a hands-on father to his children, but regretted not playing a larger part in their lives when they went to boarding school and questioned whether he had done a good job.

    “I bought into the fashionable philosophy of not interfering, letting the children find themselves,” he said. “When they were getting into trouble – at school, or later with their relationships, I would just bite my lip and tell myself, don’t butt in, it’s their lives.”

    Mr Crews said he did not mind that his children “weren’t all brain surgeons” but said he simply wanted them to live up to their potential and avoid the need to take state benefits.

    So I don't think that suggests he as a "bad father" in the traditional way. Also, one of his daughters has come out and said that her dad wasn't wrong, just a bit over the top.

    In reading the letter, which his daughter made public with his consent, you do get a odd mix of frustration and love. It's entirely likely that he and his wife were bad parents - that they picked the wrong time to back off and the wrong time to engage. But I don't get the sense that he was speaking without a deep sense of loss and personal failure.

  • Tinkerville

    Exactly. This might be an unpopular opinion but I was in favor of the letter he wrote. He was articulate and expressing frustration in an honest way. It seemed like more of an act of tough love than anything else. In this article it doesn't seem like he was a bad father, just a disappointed one. He clearly loves them deeply but couldn't hold his opinions back anymore.

  • BWeaves

    Here in central Florida, it's a lovely 76 F, and I have all my windows open.

    Also, the unhelpful Amazon reviews are hilarious. I love the last one, about how the DVD replaced the nice TV audio on a movie with foul language.

  • Scully

    My personal favorite is the Lindt Lindor Truffles review. "...crawling around my hangy thing in the back of my throat." made me cry-laugh. I'd like to gift reviewer Noel sweets for his contribution.

  • Tinkerville

    "But the show every *sshole loves to hate..."

    Erm. Okay. But some of us gave it an honest shot just really don't like it. In any case, Neil's Puppet Dreams is my new favorite thing.

  • Jenn TheYellowDart

    People thought that Josh Hutcherson was obnoxious in The Hunger Games?!? I thought he was adorable!
    I just don't understand you young people today.

  • lowercase_ryan

    You're from Canada, you're not supposed to "get it".

  • Jenn TheYellowDart

    We are a strange, mysterious and exotic people. We don't relate well with others.

  • F'mal DeHyde

    I happen to agree with you but then I'm part French Canadian.

  • Bert_McGurt

    Lift with your legs, shovelers!

  • the_wakeful

    "Here in California it’s still somewhat toasty warmish"

    Try riding a motorcycle up and down 280 every day. Toasty warm my frozenish ass.

  • JoannaRobinson

    You've been here less than a year and you already sound like the "SNL" Californians sketch. So proud of you!

  • the_wakeful

    Almost two, thankyouverymuch. *Harumph*

  • JoannaRobinson

    Whoa. Really. WHOA.

  • the_wakeful

    I KNOW
