Oh Sh*t, Anne Hathaway Has Tapped Into Her Inner Toreador

By Joanna Robinson | Pajiba Love | November 14, 2012 | Comments ()


I have to say, the Petreaus scandal is making me feel extra paranoid. I mean, no one gives a sh*t about the email dealings of low-level pop-culture blogger but, just the same, I may have to start conducting all my clandestine lovel affairs via the USPS. They could use the revenue anyway. If you want to add fuel to your inner demons, here is some background on how this particular scandal unfolded. (The Week)

I should make mention that I don't give a crap about who has sex with what. As long as everyone is a consenting adult. When kids are exploited, that's when Joanna gets angry. Which is why I've never seen a second of either "Toddlers & Tiaras" or "Honey Boo Boo." For a perspective on child pageantry, here are several former contestants, all grown up, on their personal experiences in the limelight. (NY Mag)

Can we just stick to exploiting our pets? As it should be? Chicken Kibble...good. (Imgur)

Joaquin Phoenix, who chapped a lot of hides recently by bashing Hollywood's Sacred Cow, the Academy Awards has since apologized for coming off as d*ckish. Does that mean he doesn't know he always comes off that way? (Celebitchy)

Guess which state is home to America's Most Diverse neighborhood? Go ahead, guess. You'll never get it. (Housing Wire)

Terry Pratchett has stated that he will be giving the reins of his Discworld over to his daughter when he is no longer able to write. Rhianna Pratchett is not without her own clout so I'm not all that worried. But I'd rather she focus solely on the TV show and leave the books alone. (NS)

Speaking of fantastical worlds, you can listen to the complete soundtrack of The Hobbit here. It makes nice background music for your Wednesday afternoon spreadsheetin'. (Empire)

And to round out the trifecta of nerd worlds, here's an alphabetical list of the deaths in "Game Of Thrones" in the style of Edward Gorey's Gashlycrumb Tinies. MAJOR BIG BOOK SPOILERS. DON'T SAY I DIDN'T WARN YOU. (Nerd Approved)

The Fug Girls made the Seinfeld puffy shirt joke before I could. Damn them. (GFY)

There has been a disappointing lack of new, awesome TV shows this year. Really, name me one new show you're over the moon about. Well here's hoping David Fincher's series starring Kevin Spacey will come to the rescue. Here's the first trailer for "House Of Cards." (/Film)

Break out your holiday wish list and add this swanky "Sandman" box set to the bottom. It's costly, but worth it. (Boing Boing)

I hope you're not feeling stressed today, my darjeelings, but if you are, maybe your office should take a tip from these Italian anti-stress stations. (Rebel Art)

Your master of all things "Walking Dead," TK sent over this fantastic article from the costume designer for the AMC series. The color schemes have meaning!! Also, let's take a moment and bow down to this week's brilliant poncho situation. (Fast Company)

Finally, for all of you gents struggling with patchy facial hair this Movember, here's a message from the Patron Saint of Mustachioed Men, Nick Offerman.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Joanna, any time you wanna mess with the big brother, you just let us know. We give good mail. Though, to be fair and hip-to-the-kids, who uses email anymore, especially for that? Isn't the sexting the thing, better for the short attention span and the need to have a hand free?

    I don't know, since my room is a Buddhist monastery in a Gobi Desert...which is why I can read Terry Pratchett while my Movember 'stache gets fuller as I weave my own poncho and rehearse my toreador twirls and play fetch with my little dog, LeeLoo, while drafting my Joaquin-asshole comments, before re-watching 'GoT' (what, no Red Wedding?! wouldn't that be Gorey's favorite?) and then quietly falling asleep to the twee tones of 'le Hobbit'. Goodnight Moon.

  • danicakes

    I can haz multipass?

  • John W

    So when Merle and Daryl reunite who dies and how? Let's start the betting now:

    I say Merle dies saving Daryl.

  • BiblioGlow

    Oh, Terry Pratchett, please stop talking about being gone and hurting my heart x.x

    Does anyone know about his daughter's books? Because I was only able to find two graphic novel looking things on Goodreads. They...did not inspire much optimism about her taking over the Discworld series. Not that any other author could ever measure up to Pratchett anyway.

    We'll always have Night Watch.

  • TheOriginalMRod

    Ponchos are awesome. Especially on Norman Reedus!

  • BierceAmbrose


    Per article in Wired online. US Federal requests for info from Google up 25% every 6 months.

  • Those are some HIDEOUS photos of Anne Hathaway. Up until now I thought she was completely incapable of taking a bad photo but...well, there you go.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    I have to disagree. But I'm just going to blame my man-bits. I feel like, objectively, you're probably right. But still, you're wrong because my man-bits.

  • Don Juan de Markup

    She looks like a Transylvanian doing the Time Warp Again. Maybe a time warped Tim Curry or an OIympic ice dancer.

  • emmelemm

    OK, first: I named my dog LeeLoo. But even I wouldn't dress her up in an orange wig.

    Second: read the article about Walking Dead costumes. Norman Reedus calls the poncho "his blankie". I am slain.

  • Bodho

    Yup. Evan Peters & Norman Reedus are going to fighting for space in my dreams tonight

  • BobbFrapples

    Ah, Hobbit music. How I love thee.

  • Quatermain

    That header picture makes her look like the comic-opera version of The Joker.

  • Slash

    Holy crap, I live in Irving. And thus, I'm not surprised. I have tons of Latino, black, Indian, Pakistani neighbors. And an Asian family (Korea? China? not sure) lives across the hall from me.

    It's not all racist white assholes here in Texas. Yes, they predominate in the state government, but we're not all like Rick Perry.

  • Dallas! Fuck yeah!

  • fracas

    She could slay my bull any time. Wait, that's the matador, not the toreador. She could wave a pink cape at my charging... no, that's just weird. She could, um... Are the toreadors the ones on the armored horses with the ribbony spears? I don't know where I'm going with this. My entendres aren't coming together today. I'm totally a Taurus though, if that has anything to do with it.

    Those poor bulls... :(

  • when i saw the phrase toreador i thought of vampire the masquerade and my time spent larping at college. i am such a nerd.

  • Ian Fay

    You're not alone.

  • duckandcover

    Oh God, I thought I was the only one.

  • Green Lantern

    NERDS! Now s'cuse me...I gotta go polish my power ring.

  • googergieger

    Before Gmail became a thing, I was invited into it and as a joke I put my name as Buck Futter and kept it that way because I forgot about it. Little did I know years later that became my email for everything including work. Suffice to say, tough to get a job when you send a resume to someone and it says, "From: Buck Futter".

    Well most jobs.

  • Miss Laaw-yuhr

    You sir, are my hero for today. My sister and I are always attempting to use Buck Futter in various public ways for our personal amusement - usually reservations and what not. We hope to someday own a racehorse and give him this name.

  • John G.

    Joanna, you have a job on the internet. They know EVERYTHING about you.

  • Really, name me one new show you’re over the moon about.

    I'd like to offer MTV's Underemployed. But yeah, otherwise all my favourite shows were already around last year.

  • Ian Fay

    Also, while I really disliked the pilot, Ben & Kate was been surprisingly good since the pilot.

    I'm pretty sure someone told him in the pilot to set his quirky dial to "Adam Sandler" when it should have been set on "Kramer". He's a lot less annoyingly manchild-eqsue in the future episodes.

  • Ben & Kate suffers from the Parks & Rec disease: it's a sweet show full of sweet people, but it doesn't actually make me laugh like a comedy is supposed to. I'll still watch it, though.
