Leg Enthusiasts Of The World, Rejoice! Amy Pond Gets Her Own Spin-Off

By Joanna Robinson | Pajiba Love | August 22, 2012 | Comments ()


Forget Avril and Chad, the real celebrity couple news of the day belongs to Superman and Wonder Woman who, according to DC, will officially be "a thing" in the new Justice League reboot. Some people are calling Wonder Woman a "homewrecker" because of this. Those people are, in my opinion, criminally inane. (Gutters and Panels)

Attention "Community" fans, Dan Harmon will be doing a Reddit AMA ("Ask Me Anything" if you didn't know) at 12 PST. Dude, that's, like, NOW. (Twitter)

Also, "Community" fans, I would be remiss in my linking duties if I didn't steer you towards this supercut of Alison Brie rapping. Full disclosure, I haven't watched the video yet because I'm still feeling a bit Brie fatigued, but I hope you enjoy the stuffing out of it. (WG)

Forget franch toast, I have a new favorite breakfast item. Cinnamon bun pancakes. Try not to lick your screen too hard. (Neatorama)

Speaking of cinnamon-flavored things, there's photographic evidence that Prince Harry stripped down to his bangers and mash while in Vegas this past weekend. Once again, try not to lick your screen. (Celebitchy)

And whilst we're on the subject of delicious Gingers, the Ponds (both Amy and Rory) will be getting a wee little web-based spin-off called "Pond Life." I don't know about the advisability of the series, but I am 100% behind the title. (The Guardian)

Have you seen this? This "facekini" fad from China? It's distressing is what it is. What's wrong with sunblock, people? (NPR)

In other Chinese news, this badass man built himself a pair of bionic hands. You know, after he lost his hands in an accident, he handlessly built himself a new pair. (Daily Mail)

Speaking of dismemberments, while I have a healthy appreciation for an attractive lady in cosplay, I appreciate the effort so much more when there's a joke built into the pretty. This chica pretty much nails it. (That's Nerdalicious)

Sam Claflin, one of the most vanilla leading men of all time, has officially been cast as the devastatingly handsome and charismatic Finnick Odair in the next installment of the Hunger Games franchise. Uh, well chosen Hollywood. (/Film)

The Oatmeal (one of the best sites on these here internets) has raised over $800,000 for a Tesla museum. I love Tesla for a number of good and intelligent reasons but, if I'm being honest, this is the way I always like to imagine him. (Uproxx)

While I admire this young lady for her excellent and intricate Neverending Story tattoo, I'd like to know exactly how she plans to sleep with the mad gleaming eyeballs of the G'mork gazing up from her bicep. (io9)

The poster for the Daniel Day Lewis movie Lincoln has been released and it's, uh, Lincoln-y. I, for one, adore it. Your mileage may vary. (FSR)

    Re:The man who built himself bionic hands after losing his in an accident...did he do it IN A CAVE with a BOX OF SCRAPS!!

  • David Sorenson

    Y'all are wrong to ignore the Avril Lavigne/Chad Kroeger hookup. Really wrong. Apocalyptically wrong. Do the math people.
    1)Snooki is having a baby. That's horrible enough on it's own. The child will be the pinnacle of drunken whoring.
    2)Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are dating. Should they breed a child of pure ego will be born.
    3)Now Chad and Avril are engaged. Should they breed that child will be a canadian black hole of musical suck.

    Soon enough Dane Cook will be seen with Whitney Cummings, and their child will bring about the death of comedy.

    The end times are coming. It has been foretold.

  • Meh. It's 2012. Whaddayagonnado?

  • **I AM** NotTheOne

    As soon as I am done hyperventilating I will begin gathering the weapons and food supplies. Who has access to a fallout shelter?

  • Amory

    don't forget john mayer + katy perry.
    on the plus side, this means no-one else has to date them...

  • SabrinaHatesDisqus

    While I admire this young lady for her excellent and intricate Neverending Story tattoo, I’d like to know exactly how she plans to sleep with the mad gleaming eyeballs of the G’mork gazing up from her bicep.

    I'm guessing "with her eyes closed"?

  • jams

    wwwcougarsterc0m is a clua where we young men hunt cougars.....

  • Lee

    Because DC can't have Wonder Woman date any other superhero or just a
    regular schmoe(they just killed her classic love interest in Steve
    Trevor who they de-aged for this reboot to be her love interest again.---BTW--Check the site ~~~ (CouGarKiss-----C♥Μ)~~~ for Mature Women Dating Younger Men.

  • John G.

    You're right, there should be a David Bowie museum, and the Tesla museum should just be a subset of it, with David Bowie playing the part of Tesla.

  • CM Towns

    One of the problems with Superman/Wonder Woman is that WW has rarely been allowed to have her own sex life. Between the mid 80s(her last big reboot) until last year she had no long term love interest and developed a rep for being a 'virgin' character. Now she dates Superman because why? Because DC can't have Wonder Woman date any other superhero or just a regular schmoe(they just killed her classic love interest in Steve Trevor who they de-aged for this reboot to be her love interest again). WW is not allowed to have a sex life unless its Superman or Batman.

  • Green Lantern

    "WW is not allowed to have a sex life unless its Superman or Batman."

    I think you just answered your own question here.

  • Tinkerville

    I want that Neverending Story tattoo like crazy, preferably with Sphinxes that shoot lasers at people that get on my nerves.

    Also, those facekinis are fucking creepy.

  • L.O.V.E.

    Still feeling a bit Brie fatigued?
    How about some Colby, then?

  • JoannaRobinson

    I L.O.V.E. you forever for this.

  • L.O.V.E.

    Just acting cheesy.

  • bleujayone

    And with the introduction of facekinis, luchadores everywhere start making arrangements to vacation in China next year.

  • That header pic may well be the only "HOT' pic of Karen Gillam. She looks rather under baked the rest of the time.

    I know people are going to complain about WW's ass on the cover of that comic, but damn, that's a nice ass.

    That pic of Bowie as Tesla just nails it.

  • luckypete

    For the Lincoln poster, I even tried to cover up the beard and the hair... and I STILL could not see Daniel Day-Lewis. He is simply Lincoln.

  • Lipton

    I was always going to be disappointed with the Finnick casting because the actor who I really wanted for the role is stuck on a TV show that just won't fucking die. I hate my brain for making me want something that was never going to happen. Stupid brain.

    I guess this Claflin guy is ok. I'm not filled with hate and loathing, so I guess I'll just have to wait and see. At least the rest of the casting seems pretty great.

  • Ash

    I was hoping pretty damn hard they would cast Jesse Williams...

  • llp

    Jensen Ackles?

  • athena23

    I am underwhelmed. I didn't have anyone particular in mind but when I try to picture Claflin in my mind...he just sort of drifts out of it. Not very Finnick-like.

  • Ryan Kwanten? If so, me too. I was always setting myself up to be disappointed.

  • Bert_McGurt

    DC has always teased a Superman-Wonder Woman relationship. And, to a lesser extent, a Batman-Wonder Woman relationship. It's nothing to freak out about - taking existing characters in un or under-explored directions is exactly the point of the reboot. 70+ years of existing continuity gets boring.
    Besides, now Jimmy and Lois can hook up, bonding over their shared experiences of gaining bizarre powers for one issue only!

  • **I AM** NotTheOne

    I know that Superman/Wonder Woman/Batman threesome fanfic already exists somewhere. But I'm afraid to look for it. I could end up on some really weird mailing lists.

  • Gah...I mean Gillian and Staite, obviously. Sorry. I'll be in my bunk.

  • Oh. And someone please put Jewel Staite and Amy Pond on a project together. Because I need that kind of frustration and longing in my life, that's why.

  • I think I'm going to start a band and call it Criminally Inane. #thingsToDo

  • **I AM** NotTheOne

    Did you mean criminally inane or criminally insane? Either one works.

  • JoannaRobinson

    I meant inane. Trust.

  • **I AM** NotTheOne

    Fair enough.
