Peggy Carter Whoops Some Ass And Looks Good Doing It, Console Wars Heat Up, And, Uh, One Direction Something Something

Grammar lessons by The Oatmeal are my favorite kind of lessons. Next up? “Who” vs. “whom.” (The Oatmeal)

John Mayer is kind of a douchebag. Grantland’s Steven Hyden looks at why, and how he’s trying (mostly unsuccessfully) to shed his douchetastic image. (Grantland)

The next era of console wars has begun, and a big part of it has thus far consisted of Microsoft sh*tting the bed in spectacular fashion. Now they’re cleaning up their mess, and it begins in earnest. Kotaku rounds up everything you need to know about the PS4 and the XBone. (Kotaku)

Hard core Breaking Bad will get a huge kick out of this glimpse inside the writer’s room, and several key storylines not taken in season four. (Uproxx) And while we’re talking Breaking Bad, that guy with the insane moustache in last week’s episode? A total hoss. (WG)

When I was in college, I briefly worked at The Gap (I know, OK? I KNOW). It was not a good relationship, starting with the dumb-ass training video I had to watch. Here’s a list of the 7 best employee training videos. Oh Nando’s. The restaurant of my people. “Wrapper’s Delight”? For shame, Nando’s. For shame. (Mental Floss)

Hey Lilly: A little more room in those knickers, and you’ve got the world’s first pair of pleather Hammer pants. (GFY)

Netflix signs exclusive deal with Weinsteins, is no longer f*cking around. (Film School Rejects)

I continue to relentlessly be bombarded with marketing emails about the goddamn One Direction movie that’s coming out. I even tried to get Jodi to take the passes I was sent, but they ended up going to waste. I’m almost tempted to watch it just for the sake of mockery and fury, and then I see haircuts like this and I know it wouldn’t be worth it. (Dlisted)

Lena Dunham wore a bikini in the teaser for the new season of “Girls.” People, for reasons unbeknownst to me, seem to think this is important. It is not. It is a relatively normal-looking woman. In a bikini. Pretend you’re at the beach, and let’s go on with our lives. (Celebitchy)

This story, about a couple who are each going through gender reassignment, is both fascinating and adorable. (The Independent)

California company creates weed-laced Nutella, cuts out middle man. (Laughing Squid)

People do a lot of useless crap with Vine. But sometimes? They do some amazingly tricky crap. (One Cool Thing A Day)

… And then sometimes, they capture some sh*t that you wouldn’t believe is real. (HuffPo)

Despite Hollywood’s eagerness to turn every superhero into a film, there are ten comic-book heroes that still yet need there own franchise. Ryan Reynolds is available. (Zergnet)

Finally, the newest One Shot, the short films that Marvel attaches to their DVD releases, is now online. This one, Agent Carter, features Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell), dealing with the “death” of Captain America, as well as kicking a fair amount of ass. Make sure you stick around after the credits.

  • googergieger

    Yeah, ever since the RROD and the shitty customer service I received having to fix their problem, I've been done with microsoft. Sony is where it's at.

  • marigi

    Is agent Carter going to end up being the mother of Tony Stark??!

  • *head explodes*

  • Slash

    Damn, Agent Carter.

    This (and nothing else heard or seen previously) makes me want to see the Captain America movie.

  • Tinkerville

    Damn, Peggy! I'm still bitter over the fact that she's by far the best cast and best written female lead in the Marvel movies and she's the only one we can't see more of in the sequels. Instead we're stuck with more Jane Freaking BlandyMcBland Foster.

  • foolsage

    Peggy Carter is appearing in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

  • Mrcreosote

    I have some...issues with today's PLove. First of all, I'm quite sure Bieber has pleather hammer pants in a rainbow of hues already. Secondly, first person to get me a photo of TK as a Gap employee gets a cookie. Third weed laced Nutella? Come on people, you're not even trying any more.

  • emmalita

    What kind of cookie?

  • luthien26

    Awwww, I loved the Peggy Carter character. I thought she was one of the best parts of Captain America. I'd put her up there among the best female characters in a comic book movie because she wasn't a damsel in distress, she was an authority figure, and she could take care of herself. So glad to see her (and the adorable Hayley Atwell) getting some more love!

  • Muhnah_Muhnah

    Why can't I see the video?! I love Hayley Atwell, been trying to get my good-for-nothing friends to go with me to see the play she's in "The Pride", but they're "busy". Idiots.

  • emmalita

    Go alone. You might meet someone interesting.

  • Muhnah_Muhnah

    I'm actually tempted to do that. I was just being nice and waiting for them because they'll bitch about it. As for someone interesting...Agent Carter herself perhaps? Mmmm.

  • emmalita

    Anything could happen. It's the theater, a place of magic and possibilities. (This should be said in a plummy, sing song voice).

  • Muhnah_Muhnah

    Oh God, I hope they don't start singing! I'm ok with musicals, but random singing in a play/movie drives me nuts. It's like finding raisins in my porridge.

  • Mrs. Julien

    So the XX Aficionadi get Anna Kendrick and this lissome woman and the XY Aficonadi get Comic Book Guy, Ray Bradbury and Billy Bob Thornton header photos? That hardly seems fair. I DEMAND equality and none of this "Cumberbatch" crap. I want empirically-attractive, aesthetically pleasing manflesh! Come gather 'round XY Aficonadi wherever you roam and join me in solidarity.

    What do we want?
    Empirically-attractive, aesthetically pleasing manflesh!
    When do we want it ?
    NOW!

    What do we want?

  • Muhnah_Muhnah

    Hurray for empirically-attractive, aesthetically pleasing manflesh! And womanflesh! More empirically-attractive, aesthetically pleasing flesh generally! (Being bi is twice the fun, sign up!)

  • DeltaJuliet

    Now! Now! Now!

  • Deidra

    So greased Kit Harrington and both shirtless Olyphant, John Legend and Jake Johnson all in the last 24 hours don't count?

  • pajiba

    I mean, SERIOUSLY.

  • Mrs. Julien

    What's your point?

  • Deidra

    We always get ours. Don't look a gift chromosomal smorgasbord in the mouth.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Are you calling me fat?

  • Deidra

    No, just XXY discriminatory.

  • NateMan

    The PS4 comes out November 15th. I have already pre-ordered (first time ever on a console), along with Watch Dogs. The 15th is a Friday. I've already told my wife she should go visit her parents with our daughter, because there's no way in hell I'm going to be capable of parenting for the next 48 hours. Can't WAIT.

    Well, actually I can, because there's no way I'm moving my order to a Best Buy store that's doing a midnight launch. That's just nuts.

    Hello Miss Atwell...

  • Why wasn't she featured as a "For Your Consideration..." a few weeks back. I need to revise my 5.

  • Guest

    I've already submitted Lilly Collins "for consideration" for next years Pajiba 5 or 10 (it really needs to be 10), so you can do it for Atwell.

  • Dennis Albert Ramirez

    my thoughts exactly

  • Neekimon

    TK, I adore you...In saying that, I don't want to be this person but...Weed-laced marijuana... I'm sure alot of folks wish such a thing existed..

  • NateMan

    You mean it DOESN'T?! What the hell have I been smoking?!

  • e jerry powell

    I don't know if I would have spent the fifty cents to use up the word hubris on John Mayer. There are so many far more deserving delusional narcissists for the high-end SAT words.

  • GIMME MORE GIMME MORE GIMME MORE GIMME MORE!

    There MUST be Agent Carter movies! They gave Coulson a series and he was just a flunky! [An awesome flunky, but...]

  • foolsage

    Coulson is also a recurring character in "Ultimate Spider-Man".

  • John W

    That one shot was pretty cool.

  • the_wakeful

    That Marvel One Shot was freaking awesome. Are there more of those?

  • calliope1975

    Yep. Look for: The Consultant; A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Thor's Hammer; and Item 47.

    Marvel knows how to build a universe.
