Who says Twitter is pointless? If you still haven't joined, do yourself a favor: Create an account, and follow only Patrick Stewart. You will never be disappointed. Here's 10 reasons why. (Star Trek)

Here's a look at the biggest duds on cable television this past year, most of which I've never heard of, which I suppose speaks to why they're duds. (Vulture)

Black Thought from The Roots came up with rap lyrics for the "Super Mario Brothers" theme on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," and they are OUTSTANDING. (Uproxx)

For those of you who have gleefully purchased a boomerang for your child, and then felt like a failure because you couldn't make it boomerang, this post is for you. A-Mazing. (Videogum)

If you're ever cast in a Quentin Tarantino film, folks, bring a pen to rehearsal. If you don't, you will no longer be in a Quentin Tarantino film. (Celebitchy)

... and Serena Williams is going to go ahead and walk those Steubenville rape comments back now. (Dlisted)

I've seen a number of reviews, including this one, which has summed up season six of "Mad Men" as disappointing, and I just don't get it. I honestly think it's the best season yet. Are we watching different shows? (Grantland)

Here's three lesser known British shows you should watch, and "lesser known" is right: I've never heard of them. I'm very intrigued by the last one, though. (Unreality)

You know why pieces like this are so popular on the Internets? Because in so many cases, it's true: 10 Comic Book Women You'd Like to Get With (Underscoopfire)

This supercut of the best local newscast videobombs starts out amazing, and somehow manages to get even better. (Showrenity)

This is the greatest tampon ad of all time. NO ONE DENIES THIS. (Hypervocal)

"Everyone who runs a commenting system ends up killing themselves or shooting up a post office." After the first comment on SLW's piece this morning, I believe that. (Wired)

Here are ten simple rules for determining whether your cleavage is bad, which comes from a female perspective, I suppose. The male perspective would probably boil down to: Is there cleavage? If yes, then it can't it be bad.. (Yeeah)

  • DominaNefret

    I misread this article title as "incontrovertible evidence that no one is better at Twister than Patrick Stewart".
    I really wanted to see this evidence. Humbug.

    The old man making animal noises was my favorite part of that supercut, by far.

  • DominaNefret

    So, what I learned from that cleavage article is "small boobs= good cleavage, big boobs= bad cleavage."
    Thanks! I guess I'm automatically trashy and have bad cleavage because I have big boobs; something that already makes clothing difficult to shop for, being a smallish lady with DDDs.
    I guess I need to reevaluate my boob size, so that I can be classier!

  • Homestar

    Seriously. I completely agree. Dustin is great and everything, but he seems to not quite get that objectifying women is pretty much always awful. My large breasts object to being immediately classified as trashy.

  • DominaNefret

    Unfortunately, I think this is something people don't even think about. Big boobs and being sexy are awesome, right?! It's like, the feminine ideal! Therefor why would any sexy, busty lady experience any prejudice? It is totally easy being a sexy lady. Everyone knows that.
    I mean, I have actually had people tell me that numerous times. That sexy women get whatever they want, and it is very easy to be a sexy female, so I don't have anything to complain about ever.
    Except it being a pain in the ass to find clothing that fits.
    Except for being harassed constantly. (I can't ride the metro by myself without being relentlessly hit on, and guys can get NASTY if you make it clear you just want to be left alone).
    Except for automatically being labelled as "trashy" or "slutty" or "dumb" or "bitchy".
    Except for articles like this, written by other women, which imply that having big boobs is bad. About four of those "if your cleavage is this, than it is bad" apply to me even when I'm just wearing a tank top with a built-in.
    Except for people applying different standards of what is "appropriate wardrobe" to us. After my boobs popped in high school I was forced to put my gym shirt on or had my parents called all of the time, for "dress code violations", for wearing tops/dresses less revealing than what a lot of other girls were wearing.
    On top of that, women aren't supposed to find themselves sexy, even if it is just an understanding that to much of society "fit + big boobs + butt = sexy", so it is very easy to get labelled narcissistic, egotistical, and self aggrandizing.

    Basically, my body causes me enough trouble in my daily life without other women writing articles saying my cleavage is bad and implying I am trashy because I have big boobs.

  • DominaNefret

    Uh, I get ranty about this subject.

  • Homestar

    No, I am with you! I am a tomboy, always have been, and have never been comfortable projecting a sexy lady image. But society assumes, just because I have naturally large breasts, I'm a super feminine slut. There is no way around it, besides wearing baggy clothes that look terrible. And it makes me very angry.

  • John W

    Inside men was good.

  • DehydrationStation

    Interior monologue: Do I dare tell them that this bogus Russian Tampax commercial is really a clip from the detestable 'Movie 43'? Shouldn't self-proclaimed cinéastes already know this? I mean, "Tampons, now leakproof?" Tampons aren't already leakproof? I feel like I'm taking crazy pills.
    Anyway, don't tell them. They'll just downvote you.

  • Homestar

    The cleavage thing is totally stupid. Why was it even linked here? It's no one else's damn business how much boob a lady wants to share with the world. It doesn't matter that it's from a woman's perspective.

  • BiblioGlow

    I concur. That whole 'article' made me want to give a giant double middle finger to...someone. Not sure who. 'You're wearing your boobs wrong!'? Really?

  • Robert

    Welcome to my world, Dustin. People were spewing that "worst season ever" nonsense last season with Mad Men until the suicide. Then it was OMG amazing !1!!!eleventy!!! Mad Men has not and will never be a dynamic enough show on a consistent basis to avoid this analysis every season. It's hyperbole and leaves the writer nowhere to go when confronted with a show like The Killing where literally nothing happens until the end of the second season.

    I also really enjoy your theories on the show. I had a professor who wrote for the first season of Mad Men (Long Weekend--Weiner added his name to her script after it was written--and Red in the Face). What you picked up on is the level of detail they plan before they write one episode. They intentionally used the Sharon Tate shirt because it would have been cutting edge at the time and would create the red herring of Megan's could-be demise. The oranges aren't a coincidence. The placement of chairs in a room, who leaves the office first--it's all intentional.

    Weiner had the entire arc of Mad Men planned years before he decided on it being a TV show instead of a film. There were two big changes in season one: that bitchy neighborhood mom with the creeper kid got fired for being a diva on set, leaving them scrounging for Betty plotlines; Roger Sterling was supposed to die, but they fell for Slattery's portrayal so hard that they let him live and added him to all future plotlines. Otherwise, it's been a steady arc toward the always-planned conclusion.

  • annie

    I speak as a lifelong small-chested lady, but the whole good vs bad cleavage thing sucks for the larger-boobied women of the world. You girls don't have it easy finding something cute and that fits without someone telling you you're dressed like a total hooker.

  • Homestar

    It really does suck having large breasts and more average sized everything else. T-shirts are impossible to find. Dresses... yeah, no. Not unless the straps are big enough to cover my huge bra straps. Button-down shirts ALWAYS gape, no matter what. I used to try to hold them together with safety pins, and that didn't even work. And then there are the men who look at your chest while talking to you. I have always wished for smaller breasts, just to fit into clothes better and not be constantly objectified.

  • DominaNefret

    I am constantly disappointing myself by trying on lots of cute dresses which inevitably don't fit. I'm a 4 everywhere except my boobs, which are probably more like a 6-8. I really don't want to have to wear clothing that is way too big to accommodate them. So I end up finding jersey knits and stuff that is loose up top and conches in at the waist.

    Yeah, forget about button down tops. I have had to explain to multiples bosses that I really can't wear them.

    Do you have random guys who feel like they can just comment on your boobs just because you have them? Who it is pretty clear would never make such comments to smaller chested ladies?

    I was pancake flat until I was 15. I really really wanted boobs. Now I just wish they would go away.

  • Homestar

    Yes, and not even random guys, but my male friends whom I'd actually respected. It happened a lot more in my early and mid twenties (I'm now 32), when I was less comfortable with myself and less willing to be a bitch when necessary. It doesn't happen as often now, but I still run into the random stranger who talks to my chest instead of my face. But yeah, I had 40-year-old men ask me if my boobs were real. Multiple times. It was the most embarrassing, horrifying thing when it happened, because there is no good response to that besides "Fuck off," and I was raised to be nice to people.

    I was told, at my first job out of college, not to wear boots I'd purchased at Nine West after the first time I wore them to work. I was wearing a knee-length pencil skirt, a tucked in black turtleneck, tights, and the boots. Apparently showing no skin at all was far too sexual for the men who worked at my company. I am still furious about that.

    It'll get better, I assure you. But it really pisses me off that women still, STILL, have to put up with this body-shaming nonsense.

  • DominaNefret

    Oh, my guy friends openly talk about my tits/body all of the time, which I know for a fact they would never do to any of their other female friends. I have this great mix of them constantly objectifying me, and treating me like one of the guys. Which I think is part of why they don't think twice about talking about my body all of the time. To them I'm basically a dude that looks like a hot chick that they'd totally bang, while their other female friends are ladies. I've tried putting my foot down, but it has yet to be successful.
    I have random men say all sorts of weird boob things to me. I have had offers to help carry them.

  • ferryman

    Yeah, I used to complain about the "objectification due to my size" as well until I realized on the grand scheme it was one of the only attributes setting me apart from every other schmoe out there. It doesn't bother me so much now, except when wearing tight jeans.

  • Homestar

    I'm glad that you've worked it out to where you have the advantage. For me it's always been a struggle, because I am not comfortable conveying my sexuality through my appearance. Large breasts seem to immediately sexualize a woman, even when that is not her intent.

  • ferryman

    Well, it's probably different in your case anyway.

  • apsutter

    Completely agree. I have a naturally smaller bust but I went through a weight gain in my early 20's and it was such a bitch trying to find clothes that fit everywhere. Now that I'm back to my old weight I marvel at how nice it is to be able to wear pretty much anything you want and not having to worry about my chest.

  • annie

    I've known a few women who wear clothes that fit to slightly bigger and were told they weren't dress appropriately for work, as if not wearing a sack was an intentional neon sign to remind people that they have boobs, not that they want to look nice and dress like anyone else.

  • e jerry powell

    How is that Tarantino bit a bad thing? It's all about professionalism. As a musician, I have to make sure I have multiple pencils in my gig bag before I show up to a rehearsal. Same with doing even community theater.

  • apsutter

    Agreed. Not having a pen is just one of those things that shows a much deeper laziness in a person. Try going out right now and getting a job without having a binder with your credentials, a pen, and portfolio of some sort.

  • Kate at June

    I watched Robin Hood a couple years back because my husband sucked me in (not sure if this one was lesser known, really.) I had fond memories about it so I went back and tried to rewatch and it turns out that there were a few scenes that were done really, really well but the rest of it was was either laughable or just bugged me. Like Maid Marian in pants and crop tops sometimes.

    But the best memory is that this happened:

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/cul...

  • ceebee_eebee

    Yeah. Not even Lara Pulver and Richard Armitage could get me into Robin Hood. Sadly. But that article is comedy gold.

  • apsutter

    So far I think season 5 has been my favorite of Mad Men so far. This season has been good but I'm over Don being such a pathetic waste of space

  • letsspoon

    I agree, season 5 was my favorite as well. This season seems a bit meandering, like they're just throwing out these random storylines and seeing if anything sticks. I know people are digging it, but i can't seem to feel invested in anything going right now.

  • idiosynchronic

    I'll give you that Atom Eve is a dish and exceptionally sweet, Girl One is truly cool - but that list absolutely SUCKED. Squirrel Girl? Ms. Marvel? Monica Rambeau? Moira McTaggart? Barbara Gordon? Lizzie Hexam? Alana from Saga?

    Absolutely disgusted. It's not about the tits and ass.

  • DeaconG

    He left a lot out-no She-Hulk, no Rogue, Sue Storm, Storm of the X-Men, Supergirl, Starfire, Carol Ferris (gee, she only leads the Purple Lantern contingent now, you know, LOVE?); and to have a pic of Mary Jane Watson and not mention her?

    Needs moar work...

  • BlackRabbit

    Kitty Pryde?

  • Simulacrum 1138

    Harley Quinn.

  • BlackRabbit

    Barbara Gordon? Or Huntress (You know it would be a wild date and you might get attacked by a supervillain, but what the heck).

  • Three_nineteen

    Don't know about Case Histories, but both Robin Hood and Inside Men were shown on BBC America.

    Robin Hood was OK, about on par with Merlin (also on BBC America, keep up please Dustin). I didn't watch the third series because of a spoilery plot point that I don't think is in the original legend (deviating from the legend would be OK I just didn't like the plot point). If anyone cares let me know and I'll tell you what it was.

    Inside Men was very good but really dark. I think I didn't see it all because my Tivo decided to pretend there wasn't a Season Pass for it and so didn't record the last couple of episodes.

  • annie

    Aww, Merlin could be really cute, even emotional at times, more for the performances than the actual... anything else about the show. Robin Hood was infinitely more boring.

  • Torgo

    Case Histories is shown every so often on PBS as part of their Masterpiece Mysteries series. Pretty good show actually

  • Patrick Stewart is the best man alive.

  • e jerry powell

    Nope. Because he's not married to me.

  • ceebee_eebee

    Inside Men was fantastic. The cast alone was enough reason for me to watch it. Nicola Walker and Warren Brown never disappoint, and I honestly don't know why Kierston Wareing isn't all over my television. She is SUPERB in everything I've ever seen her in. Speaking of, Runaway and The Take are so worth a viewing.

  • DataAngel

    Not sure that "Robin Hood" is "lesser known". Wasn't it on BBC America or Sy-Fy or something at some point? I remember watching a few episodes and hating it. Maybe it got better, but the first season took itself too seriously to enjoy the campness of it.

  • luthien26

    Patrick Stewart is a damn international treasure. Are we sure he isn't a unicorn in human form? (Yay, that rhymed!)

  • Case Histories is pretty great. Each episode has humor and heart.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    On the other hand, the modern version of Robin Hood is so bad, that I can't believe they did 3 seasons. "Robin of Sherwood" is still so much better.

    Inside Men looks very interesting.

  • koko temur

    its good, but as was stated in the link, rather grim.

  • annie

    Agreed. Not to mention Jason Isaac's piercing blue eyes (and his everything else) and the very awesome Mrs Martin Freeman being just a cool chick.

  • Return of Santitas

    She does rock. Love her 'tude.

  • emmalita

    That Tampax ad was startling, and then I laughed my ass off.

  • BWeaves

    I love the bloody bit that flies off. Why can't we have Tampon ads like that. NO, we get, "Have a happy period." There is no such thing.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Yeah, the Russian video is good, but I'm not sure it's better than this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

  • Muhnah_Muhnah

    I'm still annoyed by the blue liquid. At least the Russians acknowledge that there's blood involved somehow.
