On The Bright Side, Guess Which Awesome Music Video Vixen Is Cumbering Sherlock's Batch?

By Joanna Robinson | Pajiba Love | September 26, 2012 | Comments ()


Given how het up y'all got about that Thomas Edison pilot this morning, I'm sure you will join me in protesting this "Wuthering Heights" TV project. Right? Guys? *cricket sounds* Annnyway, this version will be set in the vineyards of Napa, California. Brood, swish and spit, y'all.(AV Club)

If you're still brooding over last night's episode of "Sons Of Anarchy," head on over to Warming Glow so you can processing all your feels with like-minded biker bros. Also, I'll echo Dustin's question about who was wounded on the ground at the end of the episode. For a split second I thought it was Juice (and this Tweet scared the crap out of me), but it ain't. Who is it? (WG)

Apparently some charity is hosting a celebrity Words With Friends tournament. No, like, real celebrities. Ed Norton, you guys! Anyway, it made ponder which actor I would most want to play with and I think I'd have to go with Stephen Fry. I'm notoriously terrible at word games, so I may as well go down in flames. (Yahoo)

Speaking of erudite Brits, Benedict Cumberbatch was seen out on the town with this nice young lady here:

No, no. The one on the left. Now maybe, MAYBE, Cumberbatch (who will be voicing Smaug in The Hobbit) and Liv Tyler were out and about discussing the finer points of Tolkien. I prefer to believe he was letting her steal his dragon. Yawrp, that's two elegant dragon sex jokes in as many days. That's why I make the good money. (Celebitchy)

Speaking of dragon f*cking, you guys know this is a thing, right? (Buzzfeed)

And while we're going inside the automotive industry, check out this man who turned himself into a car seat in order to illegally immigrate into Spain. Didn't work, but A for effort. (Telegraph)

In books news, NPH will be penning a memoir. (EW) And JK Rowling has promised that her next book will be for kids. (The Guardian)

Speaking of all things Potter, how appealing does this Butterbeer lip balm look to you? Butterbeer (and buttered rum and buttered any kind of liquid) give me the creeping heebie jeebies, so I'm not really on board. (Fashionably Geek)

Having watched Chandler's depressingly mediocre new sitcom "Go On," I gotta agree with this chart that claims it sole everything from "Community"...everything except for the parts that make us laugh or even smile. (Slate)

Ms. chose someone totally rad to cover their 40th anniversary issue. But they forgot to put pants on her. (Jezebel)

And speaking of hip feminist icons, all you Lady Scientist fanboys and girls should check out these gorgeous posters. (Hydrogene Portfolio)

Great Halloween costume, or greatest Halloween costume? (WG)

Finally, I've been looking at kitten videos all morning, that's where my brian is today, but I thought your time would be better served if I shared with you this massive protest going on in Spain. You can see some disturbing footage here, but this photo's worth a thousand words.

    Liv Tyler, livin' the dream. Or something.

  • BierceAmbrose

    Those posters! Talk about badass women.

    Did you know there's a Grace Hopper prize in computing?

  • Green Lantern



  • zeke_the_pig

    much love and solidarity to the idignados from zeke

  • yocean

    So I guess no one is going to discuss what's going on with Cumberbatch's skin in those pictures? That's what all I can think of while I was seeing those. I mean, if it's some horrible sunburn those two clearly were not spending time in same place, which debunks the theory, as much as I woulda loved the pairing.

  • Quatermain

    Apparently Spain is torqued about the Emmys as well, looks like.

  • Colombo

    @Joanna - i ubderstand he belongs to you but who is Brian

  • My special, tired, typo-ridden friend. He's the best.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Where are all the female dragons? Not only don't we see them riding cars, but they're being deprived of the auto-erotically inclined males of the species.

    also: I'm creeped out that so many of the dragons had human-flesh-colored dongs. also creeped out that I looked at more than 3 of those pix. or even clicked the link.

  • Alberto Cox Délano

    Well U.S.A., that's how you do the occupy. The blokes in Spain freaking surrounded the Congress to protest the economic meltdown they're in from pretty much the same thing that went down in the States. But the Spanish people are keen nottakingshiters and notafuckgivers, but mainly, they have a healthy Left, to get things really going. You need (and I insist on this every time I can) a vigorous Social-Democratic party and now, and you could get it started from the ground-up, because at least, you know you'll have like a ton of people worldwide rooting for this. And also, a LOT of experience to avoid the massive fuck-ups the Socialist movements have been making in the last few years. Arise ye prisoners from ye slumbers! (In the meanwhile, swerve the Obama to the left as much as you can)

    F***-ups in pursuing power, or in what they implement once they've got it?

    I don't mind things like "a living wage" or similar at all. I'm a fan, actually, except for the dark passenger that seems to come along with such stuff every time.

    FYI the Breaking Bad kids are the kids of Houston Chronicle sports blogger Lance Zierlein. He has a running theme of creative costumes for his kids (through bribery, because what kid wants to dress as Walter White). The mini-Don Drapper costume in 2011 was pretty cool too. He posted a link to past costumes in the WG link comments.

  • He seems like a great dad, really just letting his kids be kids. I mean playthings for him.

  • Matthew

    Is that not the purpose of spawning then?

  • Purpose or no, my Carl Spackler Halloween costume will get so much better if I can find a gopher costume for a 2 month old.

  • Guest

    Holy shit, Spain.

  • alannaofdoom

    Well that's the first time I've been referred to as a music video vixen...

  • I will join you in your Wuthering Heights protest. If they turn Heathcliff into some super sensitive brooding love interest, I SWEAR TO GOD THE BRONTËS WILL BE AVENGED.

  • Into Londerland

    Amen, but you KNOW that's what'll happen. Broody, Byronic and misunderstood plays considerably better than obsessive, surly, possibly-rapist, domestic-abuser who hangs a dog with a handkerchief.

    I blame Kate Bush. And Terry Jones.

  • sistercoyote

    Cumberbatch and Tyler are (at least in theory) signed to Phoenix so they may just have arrived to, y'know, work together.

    That said, though, I approve of this possibility. Because they both amuse me.

  • googergieger

    Oh and, "Speaking of dragon f*cking, you guys know this is a thing, right?".

    But furries. Not, butt furries. Just furries. Now I have a bone to pick with them, well not a bone, but a question mark. Now for those that don't know, it's a group of people that like dressing up as animals and having sex with other people dressed up as animals. Now most, if not all seem to have no interest in actual animals, just people dressed up as them. Which to me would be like going, "now I'm not gay, I just like women who look like men doing me in the ass". Another thing is, the costumes tend to always be on the adorable side. I mean it must be tough being dressed up as a cuddly Panda trying to bend over someone dressed up as a fuzzy kitten. Be like watching Ewok porn I imagine. Too busy, awing and baby talking to ever have enough time to "finish".

    A guy opens his door and gets trick-or-treated, and you think that of us? No, Mom and Dad. We are the ones who knock.

  • I cry foul on the Cumberbatch article. That's totally not date night attire.

    Those are
    "I'm in town for an award show which, as it turns out, snubbed me. Want to go to the movies and catch up?"

    "Yeah, but I'm not interested in glamming up, okay?"

    "Of course. I'd rather be comfortable, as well."


    Either that, or they've secretly been married for 5+ years.

  • Yeah, I feel like Cumberbatch is too posh for Toms on date night.

  • Yeah, I think I'm with you there. They appear to be keeping their distance as well. Contrast with the pics of that other couple everyone's been bemoaning today and making dragon jokes over.

  • John W

    Speaking of Community, when does that premiere?

  • Bert_McGurt

    October 19th.

  • googergieger

    "Anyway, it made ponder which actor I would most want to play with and I think I’d have to go with Stephen Fry."

    I'm with you right there sister. Also challenging him in a game of Words With Friends, sounds fun too. Hiyooooo!

  • lowercase_ryan

    Words With Friends - Tom Hanks

  • Arran

    Stephen Fry is an excellent pick. Him or John Hodgman, though apparently Hodgman takes it quite seriously so he'd probably kick my ass all over the show.
