Oh Dear God, Is J.J. Abrams Letting Internet Nerdom Write The New 'Star Wars'?

In a recent interview J.J. Abrams outlined some of the things we can expect to see from the new Star Wars installment. Vince Mancini rightly points out that this description bears a close resemblance to some of the “demands” made in the popular “Dear J.J. Abrams” video.

I know all of us sitting smugly here in our bathrobes or office casuals think we can write a better script than J.J. Abrams, but we don’t actually want him to listen to us. We don’t get to have that kind of power. J.J., this is the reaction we internet know-it-alls deserve.


Ahem, the HIMYM staff, on the other hand, they should listen to us when we say “stop.” “Right now. Stop. A rhyming episode? STOP.” (Vulture)

No one is having more fun on Twitter than Patton Oswalt. No, not even Colbert. (Gawker)

I am so damn sick and tired of everyone speculating about the prospective bun in an actress’s oven as soon as she steps out the door in something loose and flowey. Don’t judge Drew Barrymore and her Dorothy Zbornack caftan! (GFY)

Uh, wait, what? She is pregnant? Oh, congrats, Drew! (Pregnant)

And now for something completely different: the amazing Terry Gilliam and his ass-clingiest jeans give you a little speech on creativity. (Unreality)

Did you already have your lunch today, kids? Good, because this stomach churning footage of two planes colliding in air from the helmet cam of the passengers will ruin you for food. Unbelievably, no one was seriously injured despite the fact that one plane exploded in a fire ball. (Uproxx)

The weird delight of this Cosplayers At Home photo shoot can not be overstated. (Colossal)

Here’s a list of the 50 Funniest Women Of All Time and it cannot be refuted or at all considered a subjective ranking. IT IS FACT. “Of all time” means “since the 50s,” by the way, so sorry Carole Lombard and Jane Austen fans. SORRY. (Underscoopfire)

And why this magnificent creature who whipped her own wig off in celebration of a Price Is Right win didn’t make the list, I can’t say. (DListed)

Did you know that back in the 15th century, some couples were required to settle their differences through combat? Is that man in a hole? Does that women beating him with a sock? Read on. (TDR)

They’re shooting the Super Troopers sequel soon. Right meow? No. But soon. (Film Drunk)

Just after she got back together with RPatz, Kristen Stewart landed two films. Coincidence or has Kristen Stewart’s entire career and the career of many a-young Hollywood starlet been predicated on a system that rewards notoriety and visibility over talent? Uh. You decide. (Celebitchy)

I know when I land one of the world’s most beautiful women for my cover, I like to style her as wallpaper paste. (T&L)

Of all the 20 fun and obscure facts Dustin wrote up about Freaks and Geeks here, by far my favorite the discovery that Cary Agos aka Logan Huntzberger aka Matt Czuchry had a small role. Ben Foster I knew, this I did not. (WG)
