Our Golden Globes hostesses with the mostest…ess gave The Hollywood Reporter a great pre-show interview. Basically, Tina Fey is an amiable sweetheart, and Amy Poehler is delightfully honest. (Vulture)

The Norwegian Association of the Blind’s supercute ad reminds us how great guide dogs are. (via Tastefully Offensive)

While we impatiently wait for winter to come (not that polar vortex stuff — THE Winter), Benioff and Weiss are already making moves far in advance. Game of Thrones’
new Daario, Michiel Huisman — whom we have yet to see in the role (Huisman replaced Ed Skrein in Season 4) — has already been upgraded to a regular cast member for Season 5. Got that? (Huffpo)

For my oldest’s birthday, we went ice skating in San Jose, which is interesting because the ice melts and there’s a layer of water on top of the ice. It looks scary, but everything is fine unless you fall and end up soaking wet. All this to say, does anyone remember Nancy Kerrigan? It’s been 20 years since Kerrigan’s knee felt the Whack Heard Round the World. Now she’ll help NBC cover the Sochi Winter Games. (Twitter)

And while we’re reminiscing about the olden days, why not revisit your favorite Post-Punk and New Wave artists…as comic superheroes; Siouxsie Sioux, Adam Ant, Robert Smith… Oh my word, I can’t even pick a favorite—adore them all. (Unreality)


Jon Stewart delightfully rips Bill O’Reilly to shreds (again) over and over and over. Warning: Do not attempt to sip coffee while watching. (Uproxx)

Good grief, how much can we take? That voice, those eyes, that hair, and he’s a do-gooder? Sherlock’s Benedict Cumberbatch covers The Big Issue and steals our hearts…again. (Celebitchy)

Speaking of covers, the Fug Girls rightfully rip all six of W Magazine’s movie issue. I mean come on Amy Adams, you only do that when you need to run and didn’t wear the right bra. (Go Fug Yourself)

Happy 67th Birthday, David Bowie! Is this the day Bryan Fuller announces you’ve accepted the Hannibal gig? Pretty please? (Dlisted)

The Snowpiercer battle over the American cut rages on between director Bong Joon-ho and the Weinsteins, but at least we’ve got a new international trailer? Seriously Harvey, stop messing with our movies. (Slashfilm)

Science fiction fans rejoice! Not only does Helix start up this Friday, but also the Wachowskis are finally talking about their Netflix series, Sense8. The show centers on eight people telepathically connected by a shared vision. I don’t know about y’all, but I can’t wait to meet “Mr. Whispers.” (Slashfilm)

Dustin wonders Which of These 5 New Shows you’ll watch? (Warming Glow)

So, Joss Whedon and Anna Kendrick had an adorable Twitter exchange, and I’ll be damned if it didn’t make me wish he’d keep his promise. Any of our Pajiba lawyers care to weigh in on this binding contract business? (via The Mary Sue)

Is your Wednesday dragging? Escape the mundane and strain your brain with this little word game. (Mental Floss)

Lollygagger highly recommends (5 stars, no less!) Five Days at Memorial by Sheri Fink, a look at what happened during and immediately after Hurricane Katrina at the eponymous private hospital in New Orleans, along with the investigation into the actions of some of the doctors (one in particular) and the nurses involved. (Cannonball Read 6)

Or, if you’ve already reneged on your exercise resolution, this fun movie dance compilation will at least get your ass wiggling. I believe chair dancing along is nearly as good as yoga—energizing! (YouTube)
