Pajiba Love After Dark: Ashley Judd Wants To Run For Senator Edition

By Joanna Robinson | Pajiba Love | December 5, 2012 | Comments ()


Due to some technical glitches with the site I couldn't post this cornucopia of links earlier today, so I'm taking a page out of my friend Neil's book and bringing you some late night linkage. So pour yourself some Courvoisier, treat yoself to some velvet slippies because here come Pajiba Love After Dark.

Speaking of Ladies Men, check out these 16 famous science fiction quotes that make excellent pick-up lines. (io9)

I dunno, I'm a sucker for a well-placed "bigger on the inside" reference.

If you're looking for some ways to spice up your package make your holiday gifts extra special, here are some great wrapping ideas. (Web Urbanist)

One more TARDIS link and then I'm done for the day. I swear. But this link killed me dead, so I must, of course, share, in the hopes that it will murder you as well. (Blastr)

Yup, d*ck jokes and disabled kids. It's a brave new world. Check out this adorable video of Jay-Z trying to explain to an older woman who he is. (Gawker)

Ashley Judd is considering running for Senator. If Senator's had running mates, I'd insist she chose Morgan Freeman. (Politico)

In other actorly/political collisions, this is possibly my favorite photo all year. (Uproxx)

And this? Possibly the best headline I've seen in a long time. Man, I thought we all agreed to phone it in for December and coast through the rest of 2012 on "Best Of" lists. But noooo, The Awl has to make the rest of us look bad. Again. (The Awl)

Speaking of "Best Of" lists, Vulture wants to know what your favorite song of the year was. (Vulture)

I'm ashamed to admit mine is "Thrift Shop" by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. Check out their NPR Tiny Desk Concert and tell me you're not a convert. (NPR)

If you think picking just one song is a sucker's game, here's a mash-up of 50 of 2012's best dance songs. Lord I hate Adam Levine, but I do love fun.

Speaking of musical fun, Dustin has gathered a few of your favorite TV theme songs performed live by famous artists. (WG)

JK Rowling's adult novel, "The Casual Vacancy," is being adapted for the BBC. This is exactly what her sedate story of provincial English politics should have been in the first place. (/Film)

Those filmgoers who had a chance to see Peter Jackson's The Hobbit early are reporting back that the High Frame Rate is, unfortunately, sick-making. (Neatorama)

Finally, I admire the the pants off of comedian Tig Notaro who has had a hellaciously bad year. Here she is, in all her deadpan glory, talking about her new album "Tig Notaro: Live."

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Buck Forty

    48fps is a gimmick. Just like IMAX, 3d, colour, and talkies.

  • NateMan

    There's a little dust in the air here. Must be, cuz when I saw the tiny Time Lord I got a bit sniffly...

  • Natallica

    Meryl and Hillary's picture needs more duckface

  • John G.

    I'm so glad more people are discovering Tig. She's so great, and deserves to be more famous.

  • BWeaves

    TARDIS kid is adorable!

  • I find Macklemore much more appealing when I just listen to him. He just reminds me of the proto-hipster type I went to college with and I couldn't take them seriously, either. His album with Ryan Lewis is very good and Thrift Shop fits in nicely on the radio right now.

  • Quatermain

    Ashley Judd couldn't do any worse than the current and/or recent crop of chucklefucks we've got in there and she'd definitely hotten up the place, so I see no real reason to object here.

  • Puddin

    The debates should be amusing. As someone who lives in the same town as her, I can safely say she shall I put it? Interesting.

  • Pajiba_Pragmatist

    Yeah... Puddin I am with you on this. I've met her in a political context a few times, and, yeah, wow.

  • denesteak

    ahh Tig Notaro was on This American Life!

    That Pop Dantology was really fun! I love mashups. Just wish it featured better artists with better music -- as a mashup it works, but if I had to listen to some of these songs whole, bleehhhh.

  • Drake

    I know. I had severe cognitive dissonance. I really dislike about 85% of those songs, but all mashed up like that was a lot of fun.

  • Green Lantern

    I'm with you, Drake. I'm also trying to figure out if I'm disapointed that I didn't recognize more of the "artists", or amazed that I still KNEW some of them.

  • Fredo

    Given that she's UK basketball's #1 Celebrity Fan, she's probably got 2/3rds of the state already in the bag.

    Now, if she announces that she's making Raylan Givens her new partner, I think she could get the entire state. Not to mention a million hate stares.

  • e jerry powell

    Ms. Judd needs to make this happen. NOW. She needs to do something to kick Kentucky in the ass.

    So now we start the speculation as to who will play Bill to Streep's Hilary.

  • linnyloo

    WORD. Mitch needs to leave, stat. And Ashley Judd isn't just a pretty empty head -- she's well-spoken, an awesome feminist, and pro-environment (mountain top removal in Eastern Kentucky is just horrific). That, and she honestly loves her home state -- she's a familiar face there, and attends all the UK basketball games she can.

  • e jerry powell

    There is the little problem of the fact that her currently listed residences are her farm in Tennessee and her husband's place in Scotland.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Oh, well if she goes to college basketball games, I'm totally sold.

  • googergieger

    Please, I don't need help when it comes to pick up lines.

    "Are you a parking ticket? Cause I want to do you in the butt."
    "Are you tired? Cause I want to do you in the butt."
    "Are you from outer space? Cause I want to do you in the butt."
    "Hey, can I do you in the butt?."

    *dusts hands off*

  • John G.

    My best pickup line goes like this:

    "uh, excuse me, um... what's nevermind!"

  • Fabius_Maximus

    My best pickup line is the creepy stare.

  • The only pickup line you'll ever need: "Hey! Let's go grab some barbeque and get busy."

    I've always been in favor of the classics.

  • BWeaves

    Are you a cigarette? Cause I want to do you in the butt.

  • Miss Laaw-yuhr

    You may be a one trick pony, but it's a hell of a trick.
