Lizzy Caplan Smuts Up My Childhood. Somehow I'm Okay With It.

By Joanna Robinson | Pajiba Love | November 20, 2012 | Comments ()


I don't know how you and your family get along, by a member of my family sent me 17 euphemisms for sex from the 1800s. Thanks, sis! It's nice to be known. (The Week)

I'd like to tell you I'm curling a cynical lip at the news of a "Spice Girls" musical written by Ab Fab's Jennifer Saunders, but I'm too busy booking my flight to London. (The Guardian)

This "Dead-Pooh" tattoo is, without a doubt, the most adorably lethal thing I've ever seen. I hope "Oh Bother" is his battle cry. (Neatorama)

Speaking of adorable deathbringers, a beloved actor from "The Wire" has been cast as a new character on "The Walking Dead." The character is, apparently, a favorite from the comic. That's all I'll say lest I rile the spoilerphobes. (TMS)

Is your Thanksgiving dinner a failure pile in a pie tin? No? Then maybe you're doing it wrong. (Gothamist)

This T-Shirt. One for every. single. Whovian. (The Mary Sue)

I don't know about you youngins, but "Free To Be You And Me" was a huge part of my upbringing. Some smart *ss has done an updated version that turns all the earnest hippie dippy moralizing on its head. The project includes Andy Richter, Fred Willard, Samantha Bee, Colin Hanks, Wyatt Cenac and the lovely Lizzy Caplan. (Nerdist)

I sort of love this unused minimalist "Dark Knight Rises" poster. Here are two more unused designs that are less fun. (Rope Of Silicon)

PUT ON YOUR TINFOIL HATS. The government wants free reign to read your emails. (CNet)

Finally, I know I'm showing my age but how did these kids not break their necks? You'll break your neck, kids!

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • winged chorus

    Chad Coleman has been on my new and revised 10 freebie list for a while now. +zombies? Amazing

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Are you routing your links through Disqus now?

  • Patty O'Green

    If you thought I would pass up a comment on those sex euphemisms, then you must not know me, Lobster Kettle

  • Slash

    I usually hate food that's usually separate combined into one dish (except for casseroles, of course), but that Thanksgiving pie thing looks inexplicably delicious, not at all like a failure pile in a sadness bowl.

  • Groundloop

    Indeed, were I to prepare such a feast, I'd likely feel a little sad while eating it, but then I'd remember Patton's "Famous Bowl" bit and I'd be happy again.

    On balance, total win-win.

  • BobbFrapples

    I listened to the Free to Be a Family version as a kid. It had songs by the Fat Boys and stories read by Whoopi Goldberg. I still sing the "Everything is So Stupid" song that Ladysmith Black Mambazo had on that album.

  • Green Lantern

    I was given the album of "Free To Be" by a friend of my parents and listened to both sides of that thing over an over. Even then, I felt things like "Atalanta's Run" were a bit heavy-handed, but loved tracks like "It's Alright To Cry" (who didn't?), "Brothers and Sisters", "Girltown" and the two babies.

    Therefore I cannot *wait* for "Do Stuff". I already know it's gonna be a hoot. Plus now I have GRANDCHILDREN to teach. *HAH!*

  • Tinkerville

    That CNET article is unsettling to say the least. *dons tinfoil hat*

  • zeke_the_pig

    *builds tinfoil house*

  • Mrcreosote

    *Buys stock in Renyolds aluminum you nutbags*

  • Tinkerville

    Well played...

  • googergieger

    Oh and my Thanksgiving dinner is an Indian. Apparently the most offensive part of it all is not saying Native American.

  • googergieger
  • Miss Laaw-yuhr

    Dude, what *is* this?! I need some context please.

  • googergieger

    A band of nice fellows called Cubismo Grafico Five(who brought some friends along to a beach and shot a music video) with a song called Chukit. Which is my current pick me up when I'm feeling down song.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Really? I found their lack of ability to sing rather depressing.

  • googergieger

    Really isn't that smart to troll someone that invented it, lady godiva.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Invented singing in tune?

  • googergieger

    Alright. So chorus, innit? A chorus is lacking in singing ability? Alright. But sure, fine. Top five artists?

  • Fabius_Maximus

    What in the hell are you talking about? Are you drunk? Again?

    Did you mean "the choir"? I didn't even make it to the choir part. Although after fast-forwarding to the end, it's tolerable.

    With "top five artists" I guess you mean singers. I think 2 are sufficient: Freddie Mercury and Maynard James Keenan.

  • cicatricella

    *free rein

  • Bert_McGurt

    Nope, sorry. Joanna's correct. It's free reign, as in what a monarch does. Rein refers to what you use to control a horse (hence, to "rein in" something that's getting out of control), and therefore makes "free rein" a bit of an oxymoron.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    It's not an oxymoron. It's the opposite of "rein in." "Free rein" is the correct version.

  • Bert_McGurt

    Yeah, I guess I kinda boned that one up. This is why I try to keep my feet clean - makes it less awful when you have to stick em in your mouth.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Ya gotta love the English language for providing two very viable options though.

  • cicatricella

    aw, take 'em out, I'm sure there are tastier things to snack on :)

  • Darthita

    You're both kind of right; the original form is "free rein" (as in letting up on the reins and allowing the horse to go where it will), but "reign" has been used often enough (yay homophones) that the OED types have basically thrown up their hands in defeat and listed it as an acceptable variation.

  • mona_sterling

    I'm throwing my English teacher card down & saying Darthita is correct.

  • F'mal DeHyde

    So... no free rain?

  • Bert_McGurt

    Hooray! Everybody wins! Does this mean I get a "Pedantic Grammar Nazi" participation ribbon?

  • Shawn

    I've heard it both ways.

  • The Other Agent Johnson

    Oh, snap.

  • Bert_McGurt

    All I can say to that Walking Dead casting news is - NOW??

  • BWeaves

    Well, at least those kids didn't shoot their eye out. A kid a couple of days ago, brought a loaded gun to a library, and you guessed it, shot his eye out. He died yesterday. See kids, it's not just a saying. It really happens.
