Pajiba Royal Wedding Drinking Game Rule #7: Drain Your Glass If You See A Corgi In A Hat
Morning my dears, I want to start today by sending some Pajiba Love to our readers who live or who have friends and family in the Southern United States. The South was hit hard by storms that have claimed over two hundred lives. Our thought are with you. (MSNBC)
I can't wait to see who the nutbar Right Wingers blame for this particular natural disaster. Gays? Kenyans? That Alex Pettyfer sh*t? (Celebitchy)
Ah, Caribou Barbie, my least favorite of all the Barbies. Check out these "Fine Art" Barbies that Mattel released. I appreciate the sentiment, but there's something very disconcerting about blow-up doll-looking toys made to look like a Klimt painting. Also, seriously, WTS "A Starry Night Barbie." (If It's Hip It's Here)
If you're a "Doctor Who" nerd (my people!!), you'll know why "A Starry Night" leads me to this bitchin' NuWho Timeline. Thanks, Sadako! (Nathan The Nerd)
And while I certainly won't kick up a fuss that none of the Doctor's fetching companions landed on this IFC list of The Top Twenty-Five TV Roles For Women, I am fixin' to have a major hissy at the exclusion of FNL's Tami Taylor. Listen, I like Blair Waldorf, but Tami Taylor is in a league of her own. The Whedon-nerd in me, however, can't argue with their #1 choice. (IFC)
I love love love that Buffy vs. Edward Cullen video they used in the IFC list. Can Buffy also kick the culo of this TWENTY-FIVE YEAR-OLD who sued his parents for withholding his allowance? LINGUISTIC SIDEBAR! How do you say "ass" in Spanish-Spanish? Culo is Latin American slang, right? (Neatorama)
Sorry for the lingual detour, my twisted tongues, I like knowing things. For instance, I just learned how to do a new thing with youtube links AND I learned that Octopusessesssess are super creepy, stealthy, badasses. . .badassi? (Youtube)
You know who is a badass, under appreciated actress? The lovely Melanie Lynskey. Her involvement in "Two and A Half Men" aside, she has great taste and has likely been in some of your favorite movies. One of THOSE faces. Here she talks with The Film Experience about filming Heavenly Creatures with Kate Winslet and Peter Jackson. I really love her. (The Film Experience)
Okay, the Royal Wedding thing is happening tonight (or tomorrow morning or however you choose to think about it). I'm sure Rusty will give you details in tonight's column about where you can watch the spectacle. Listen, I know some of you are vehemently against the wedding, and I really get that. I know some of you are super excited about the wedding, and I get that too. To each his/her/its/their own. I'll likely be watching just to play a Very Pajiba Royal Wedding Drinking Game, and so I can snark on some things tomorrow. If you want to boycott, feel free to do so. There is something to be said about the spectacle, though. Even if that something is "WHAT A F*CKING WASTE OF MONEY." (The Big Picture)
Obviously I don't do political satire very well or with any degree of subtlety. I'll leave that to the experts at "The Daily Show."
Aaaand, if you're angry at me for even mentioning the Royal Wedding, here's an unrelated video to soothe your ire before you get to the comments section. I tire of the ire.
