Lena Dunham Knows She Probably Wouldn't Enjoy Pi(e) Day As Much If She Had To Maintain A Victoria's Secret Model's Figure

By Jasmine Markes | Pajiba Love | March 14, 2013 | Comments ()


I've spent most of the week battling the flu (whimpering in bed like a b*tch). It seems the whole world has gone crazycakes while I was deep in my NyQuil-coma. There's a new Pope, Veronica Mars and Twinkies have been resurrected, but Google Reader's being put out to pasture. WHAT IS HAPPENING?!?!

Well, this is comforting. At least I haven't awoken to a world where suddenly everyone hates Jennifer Lawrence. Even these groups that get their hate on professionally can't find a reason to knock her. (Vice)

That "Veronica Mars" movie news has already perked me up. The Kickstarter campaign made its goal and broke records mere hours after it was announced and it's still going. That's in part, thanks to people like this guy who donated $10,000. For backing the project at that level, he gets a speaking role in the movie. For that amount of money, I would insist on getting to beat the ever-loving shit out of Piz and his stupid, stupid hair every second that he's on screen. But, that's just me. Seriously, why is he there? (EW)

Today is Pi Day, mofos. And since I'm greed as hell and terrible at the maths, I'm one of those people that like to make today all about pi(e)s of the baked and delicious variety. (BF)

Lena Dunham answered "20 Questions" in Playboy's April issue. I too, have found myself carrying around random pieces of cutlery in my purse. FOR DINING EMERGENCIES! (Celebitchy)

In cased you missed it, PaddyDog posted this moving photography series of children around the world pictured with their most prized possessions. (Featured Shoot)


A woman in Vancouver went all kinds of Angela Basset in Waiting to Exhale on her husband's precious belongings when she posted an ad for an estate sale (the "estate" was all of his stuff) after she found out he cheated on her, warning those who would show up not to "come too early (like he did)." (Gawker)

No thank you, Netflix Social. My friends don't need to know how many times I've watched Waiting to Exhale while laid up in bed with the plague. (Wired)

What if our most iconic superheros were sponsored by our most iconic brands? Then we'd probably get lines like, "Why do we fall, Bruce?" "Because we Just Do It." (Neatorama)


NBC is doing basically what we've all done with NBC: They're just f**king giving up already. (WG)

I still have no idea what Nick Offerman's movie Somebody Up There Likes Me is about, but they are pulling out all the stops to promote it. If all the stops are Offerman's bare ass, Alison Brie and Megan Mullaly singing about weed and p*ssy, and cameos from Amy Poehler and Adam Scott. (Uproxx)

If I was conscious for TK's post where everyone came out about the big chunks of pop culture they've never gotten into out of stubbornness or lack of interest, I would have been compelled to admit the giant, Harry Potter-shaped gap in my pop culture knowledge. But, for those of you who are into that, here's another way the Potter saga could have wrapped up. (Geeks Are Sexy)

No matter where your fandom takes you, someone on this site has probably concocted a tea blend based on your favorite characters. (Adagio)

This story about Twitter rallying to the aid of a designer/comedian and his ailing wife makes me want to gather you all up and hug you until I hear something pop. Yeah, that might be too much. I would just give you all the plague, anyway. And some of you look shifty. (Chicago Tribune)

I see that lobster sex video and raise you an octopus sex video. This is how deities get made, my friends. But with more alcohol.

This 90s version of "Games of Thrones" would have fit quite nicely in the middle of a "Xena: Warrior Princess" and "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" programming block.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • e jerry powell

    I was told that there would be punch and pie.

  • chanohack


  • John G.

    speaking of Lena Dunham, this is funny:

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I like the show, and that is hilarious. (plus, I never think to check The Onion and enjoyed the soda ban story.

  • Bedewcrock

    I'm so glad SOMEONE is talking about the retirement of Google Reader. I'm pretty upset and refuse to adapt to anything else. You hear that, Google!? I'm quitting the internet because of you!

    I'm lying. I'd never quit you, Internet. Never.

  • Anne At Large

    Um, I came back here just to check if anybody had posted any good alternatives. Google Reader was so easy!

  • Mr_Zito

    I have no idea how my internet habits are gonna work without Google Reader. None of the existing options seem to fit my needs (basically to work on browsers even in very crappy computers). I'm kind of freaking out since I heard about it. I certainly wouldn't be at Pajiba for so many years if it weren't for RSS. Even when I had very little time for internet the Reader helped me organize and keep lower levels of navigation so I wouldn't just give up on the sites I liked.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    I'd love to get some of those tea blends, but did you look at the prices? That's daylight robbery.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    at first I thought the "gunpowder" in some of the blends was actual gunpowder, and then I remembered...

  • PaddyDog

    Just so no-one thinks I post links and claim them as my own, the original link to the kid's toys came from TK. I just passed it on. Forgive me. I'm knee deep in dealing with a student's plagiarized essay right now, so I'm hyper-sensitive to this issue.

  • Cazadora

    I'm such a sucker for a pun and "Man of Style" on Empire magazine made me laugh. Oh and the Hulk one was pretty funny too...

  • chanohack

    I liked UPS Captain America. What can brown do for you?

  • Kballs

    Is that picture of Wilt Chamberlain one of those kids' favorite possessions as well? Is it signed?

  • Bert_McGurt

    I thought he looked more like Wilt crossed with Cheech.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    It's wrong that I thought that was a xpicture of some random African dictator, isn't it? It makes me racist, doesn't it?

    it just looks like a Stalin/Saddam type portrait.

  • Kballs

    You're probably right . . . which means I'm the racist . . .

    This is complicated.

  • Bert_McGurt

    When I was the same age as those girls, I'd have picked Skeletor too. Although embarrassingly, I thought him and He-Man were best friends. My mom still tells me how devastated I was when I watched the cartoon for the first time and found out they weren't.

    Oh, and for anyone interested, here's a clip of Timothy Olyphant being interviewed on CBC's "Q" (aka: the show where Billy Bob Thornton was a giant a** a couple years ago): http://www.cbc.ca/q/blog/2013/...

  • PaddyDog

    "Oh, and for anyone interested, here's a clip of Timothy Olyphant"

    And the casual understatement of the year award goes to.... Mr. McGurt

  • BlackRabbit

    Who's the other He-Man figure there, though? And for the octopus video-I'd have gone with Barry White, for atmosphere.

  • Bert_McGurt

    I'm so glad I looked this up. The walrus guy is a Thundercat, but the snake beside him has the incredible name of Tung Lashor. Oh, to work at an action figure company in the 80's.

  • Guest

    Damn good links, the last in the series of the kids w/ possessions breaks my heart.

  • tangocharlie

    The Logan beating up Piz video made my day! God, Logan was so hot when he was angry/broody.

  • jM

    True. And I find repeatedly watching Piz get the stuffing knocked out of him oddly soothing. Just what the doctor ordered.

  • lowercase_ryan

    That Buzzfeed article on Pi/Pie day...mmmmmmwow
