Listen, Gaga, I Love You, But When You Claim To Be An Original, You Just Sound, Well, Dumb
The lovely Shonda sent me the following mind-boggling video which I cannot, alas, embed, but I promise it's worth a click if your overlords haven't blocked this particular site. Totally SFW but not at all safe if you've been smoking. . .um. . .anything. It will fry your tiny leettle minds. (Soriso Mail)
Speaking of minds that are boggled, if you haven't checked out the new Hyperbole and a Half yet, please do. It's the Adventures of Simple Dog! (Hyperbole and a Half)
"Simple" is a nice euphemism, no? Lady Gaga is catching a lot of flack for using the word "retarded" when accused of copying Madonna. I'm less bothered by that and more bothered by the fact that Gaga thinks she is an original in anyway. It makes her sound. . .simple. (Celebitchy)
Because, let's face it Gagolytes, it's not just Madonna she's been copying. (Fresh Pics)
Also, p.s. Gaga, you are neither the first nor the sexiest lady to wear a crustacean on her head. NSFW. I mean, I think. I dunno, where do you work? (Luke Milton)
Let's take a left turn at scantily-clad ladies to address the sexy naked elephant in the room. That is, "all that sex" in HBO's "Game of Thrones." How much sex? Well, as it turns out, quite a bit. (io9)
And speaking of books (phew, I thought I was stuck in an endless sexy lady spiral, those are the WORST), check out these terribly clever ads for a Lithuanian bookstore. (My Modern Met)
Oh, hey, have you been voting for a particular favorite for that Neil Gaiman audiobook contest? If you don't have a horse in the race already, you should back Pajiba's own Intern Rusty. (Book Perk)
Have you seen the film Hanna yet? It's my favorite film of the year so far. I don't know why it was marketed the way it was and I don't know if these posters do a better job of representing the fairy-tale/action mishy-mashyness of it, but they're worth a looksee. I've included my favorite below. (Bleeding Cool)
I made my own Hanna poster out of Llama Font. Wanna see it?
That was NOT llame. How rude! Anyway, my last little linky gift for the music nerds to scrap over is this list of 10 Bands that Made Their Best Music After They Sold Out. While that's a HIGHLY debatable claim, I'm with them on The Decemberists. (Flavorwire)
I've had this video in my arsenal since the weekend but I was hoarding it for today, the most whooooaaaa-nderful day of the year. I mean, the description involves the word "cosmic firmament." How could you watch it on any other day?
And, finally, I'll let the adorable Garfunkal and Oates play us out with their new video for "Weed Card." Happy 4/20, my dears. Please puff and pass safely and let the snacks come to you.
