In The Battle Between Nicholas Hoult And Eddie Redmayne, Everybody Wins

By TK | Pajiba Love | February 1, 2013 | Comments ()


Hi, I'm TK. This is Pajiba Love, where I put up links that amuse you so that you'll think that I like you. Hint: I don't. I really, truly don't. But I've got little better to do at the moment, so let's HAVE SOME GODDAMN FUN SHALL WE?

Since we're on the subject of not liking you, there's always a strange dichotomy between your "real world" friends and your "online" friends, when in fact most of your online friends are really just... friends. This rather excellent article articulates this phenomenon much better than me. (Persephone Magazine)

I think we can all agree that these dresses are both incredibly nerdy, and incredibly hot. (Unreality)

Do you guys listen to the Pop Culture Happy Hour podcast? It's been around for a while but it's relatively new to me, and it's bloody brilliant. One of the podcast members, Stephen Thompson, does a mailbag where he answers a critical musical question: Is the mixtape still relevant? (NPR)

This is literally one of the most beautiful photographs I've ever seen. (The High Definite)

Disney released a short film called "Paperman" yesterday, for free on YouTube. It's already got over three million hits, probably because it's goddamn fantastic. Take a look. (The Fox Is Black)

Sadly, yesterday marked the last day for the usually bizarre, often horrifying, and always hilarious Regretsy. Take a look at their Three Most Incendiary Topics post. It's hella fun. (Regretsy)

While I find the general concept of coming out to be kind of sad and symbolic of how far we have to go as a society, this "coming out cake" is pretty awesome. Caution: Link may result in tearjerking. (Blame It On The Voices)

I can't really speak to this critical question as I've actually never seen Eddie Redmayne perform in anything. Nicholas Hoult, however, is pretty great in Warm Bodies. Regardless, choose your cute skinny British lad. (Celebitchy)

We're not done with beautiful pictures. This is real life, folks, not Oz. These are photos of tulip fields in the Netherlands and they're absolutely breathtaking. (This Is Colossal)

I'm one of the rare people who actually kind of loves Superman. I think he's a terrific hero, when done just right. Thing is, he's usually done wrong. Very wrong. Here are 12 reasons why. (io9)

Speaking of Superman, the new Superman LEGO based on the upcoming Man Of Steel came out yesterday, featuring Supes and Zod. The internet is, unsurprisingly, in a tizzy. (Hijinks Ensue)

Lena Dunham is creating another HBO show, this time based on fashion icon Betty Halbreich. That makes her two for two on shows that are probably good that I just don't give a crap about. (Warming Glow)

Remember last year, when the adorable stark children (Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams and Isaac Hempstead-Wright) sort-of-sang the intro to "Game Of Thrones"? And we all somehow found a way to love them more? Here is their beatbox/rap rendition. It is awkward and silly and strange and utterly delightful.

BONUS "Game of Thrones" goodness. Warning: It's goddamn cold o'er beyond the Wall.

Finally, the lovely Emma Fitzpatrick does a fantastic Anne Hathaway "For Your Consideration" send-up. The HathLash continues!

TK didn't mean those things in the opening paragraph, except the part about not liking you. Especially you.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Jezzer

    Based on my context clues, I'm pretty sure TK adores me.

  • John W

    I was stationed on Iceland for a year and a half, I do not envy those folks having to spend so much time in that weather.

    Visually the place is extremely beautiful but the weather there is terrible.

    How the early Vikings were able to carve out a living there is a miracle.

  • Nicholas Hoult is a very pretty boy. He does nothing at all for me, but gosh darn, he's so pretty.

    Eddie Redmayne is so strange to me. He's got this really weird duckmouth, but he has amazing bone structure and his eyes are really expressive. So it's like a weird push-pull thing we've got going on. It's very special.

  • MrFrye

    I want to adopt the Stark kids so, so much. They rule.

  • googergieger

    "Link may result in tearjerking."

    Crying while masturbating? Not really a fan of it myself, but whatever floats your boat T to the K.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Hoult is *killing* it in that photo shoot. Not even a contest. With eyebrows like that, he has a long Hugo-Weaving-esque career ahead of him.

  • Slash

    Adieu, Regretsy. Not surprised by the 3 most incendiary topics, either. People (women) are incredibly fucking narrow-minded about breastfeeding. People (men and women) are the same way about circumcision. And most people have a visceral reaction (disgust) to pit hair on females. Which leads to nouveau hippie whining about unrealistic standards, blah blah blah ...

    God. Even an Anne Hathaway pretend-send-up is as annoying as hell. I have never cared about the stupid academy awards before but this year I just care enough to want Sally Field to benignly rise and accept that award and then all this Hathaway/LizaMinelli in-my-face-ness will be over.

    I am small and mean and immature in my coal-black heart. That is all.

  • Pajiba_Pragmatist

    Ok, so I think Emma Fitzpatrick just sang and acted the song in mockery better than Ms. Hathaway. And I say that as a member of team Hathaway!

  • mairimba

    I'd say Nicholas Hoult just because he's grown into his head.

  • I had already ordered that Krakow picture in poster-size before I read this, but now I feel like it has the Pajiba seal of approval. Now if only I had an actual Pajiba seal of approval to hang next to it in my house, we'd be in business.

  • Vi

    I love superman, I love him especially when he's written by Dini and Timm.

    Like so:

  • Pinky McLadybits

    Nicholas Hoult wins all the time, every day. Redmayne has wormy lips.

  • Jill

    Good God, his mouth creeps me out.

  • PerpetualIntern

    The coming out cake and accompanying letter are wonderful.

  • lowercase_ryan

    Rose Leslie more than made up for that affront to beat boxing. Ahhhh Rose....

  • Emma Fitzpatrick was in Pitch Perfect? She's not on the IMDB page for it and I don't remember her in it. She wasn't in The Bay, either. You have her confused with someone else.

    This is Emma Fitzpatrick of The Collection and The Social Network.

  • TK

    Oh hell. I got her confused with Kether Donahoe.

  • io

    What's a tupil?

  • lowercase_ryan

    I don't know, but they sure are pretty.

  • Anna von Beav

    "choose your cute skinny British lad."

    WHY do I have to choose?! I WON'T DO IT.

  • emmelemm

    SANDWICH, am I right?

  • Kballs

    FLATbread sandwich, maybe. Skinny little shits.

  • Anna von Beav


  • RE: The Regretsy link..I think 'shitpouts' might be the best way to describe whiny Internet raaaage since 'poutrage.'

  • Emcee Peepants

    Not trying to be a dick, but both Paperman and the swan photo were in the Love yesterday too.

  • Kballs

    OK then I'll be the dick. YOU FUCKED UP TK, YOU FUCKING FUCK!!!!!

  • Blake

    The Dalek dress wins for "incredibly nerdy, and incredibly hot"...

    Rose Leslie is my new Internet crush...
