Plenty Of You Lined Up To See Jeremy Renner Forearm Porn This Weekend, But Is Bourne His Best Role?

By Joanna Robinson | Pajiba Love | August 13, 2012 | Comments ()

If you could cast anyone to play Daria in a live-action movie, who would you pick? MTV made their preference known. And I can't say I disagree. Now let's dream cast Trent. Mmmmm, Trent. (Guy Code Blog)

If you say "who is Daria?" I will punch your face off. Speaking of things that make you go "arrgg," how obnoxious is this project to "Hipster"-ize classic statues? On a scale of One-to-Punch Your Face Off? (Behance)

Listen, incredibly intricate Lego Tokyo, just because I never made anything more sophisticated than a house with a little Lego garden doesn't mean you're better than me. Stop mocking me with your Lego-y spires! (Neatorama)

Ladies, dudes, what are you feelings on tattoos? I'm SURE we've been over this before, but I gotta say I'm digging on these tattooed ladies of yore. (The Mary Sue)

Then again, I'm hoping Jeremy Renner keeps his forearms tattoo free. CinemaBlend launched a little feature called "Ranking Renner" and, yeah, it's a little early in his career to rank him and, no, his National Lampoon character doesn't get a mention, but, listen, I'll take any excuse to post some Renner. (CinemaBlend)

While we're in a Hoorah state of mind, did you know that the U.S. military is trained to fight in several made-up countries? Nope, Westeros ain't one of them. (Mental Floss)

Ron Swanson is officially the only reason remaining to watch NBC now. (WG)

Of all the "Back To The Future" merch I've ever seen, this is, without a doubt, my fav. (TeeFury)

Hey, filmgoers, you like popcorn? You like popcorn with fake butter? STOP EATING THAT SH*T. It's rotting your brain. Science says so. Also, man, I've seen that stuff in vat form. You DO. NOT. WANT. (ScreenCrush)

I don't usually post anything on Miley Cyrus because I don't consider her relevant to our interests, but she got a sort of kicky haircut and I'm into it. I hope she and the Lesser Hemsworth have many unintelligent babies together. (Celebitchy)

NYT has a fascinating long read on gender identity and kids and you know what it boils down to? I'm Okay, You're Okay. That's what. (NYT)

Don't worry, Wil Wheaton got the "I'm Okay, You're Okay" message along time ago. Look at him in his little D20 Fez. That's right, Wil, fezzes are cool. (Boing Boing)

Here are some "depressingly kooky" facts about Mitt Romney's newly annointed running mate Paul Ryan. And, lest I seem biased, please feel free to post your own "enjoyably snuggly" facts about Ryan in the comments. I dare you to find some. (Jezebel)

Here's an megamix of all the Goyte Internet covers put together by Goyte himself. I think that's endearing.

And, because I've already used several hacks from the last set of videos, here are more Simple Life Hacks...kitchen edition. That iron trick looks SUPER desperate.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not


  • annie

    A girl friend of mine 4 or 5 years my junior tweeted with disgust that MTV still plays Daria and can't understand that there are people who like it. Needless to say I haven't spoken to her since then.

  • winged chorus

    Daria raised me. Whenever life throws some random fucktardedness at me I phrase it in my head using the "Sick Sad World" announcer voice.

    Meet the fly-fishing pathologist who uses human organs as bait. A liver runs through it, next on Sick Sad World!

    Meet VP candidate Paul Ryan. It snowed in my district so climate change is wrong, next on Sick Sad World!

  • John G.

    "Lesser Hemsworth " I love it!

  • Anne Lucchesi

    Am I the only person here that adores Gotye's mashup of all the covers? Dude is good at what he does, whether one is sick of the song or not.

    Also, HATE the hipster-izing of the statues. I can't even acknowledge its cleverness because it irks me so.

  • The Bourne Legacy was only ok, but if lusting after Jeremy Renner was an Olympic sport, I definitely won the gold.

  • Kate at June

    Good tattoos make hot bodies hotter. Love sleeves on men and women. Drive me crazy.

  • kirbyjay

    Southie attitude? Southie is South Boston and an entirely different Boston neighborhood than Charlestown where "The Town" is based. It's like saying Brooklyn is the Bronx.

  • Ash

    can we please talk about what an asshole bret easton ellis is? i loved less than zero and american psycho as much as the next person, but his twitter comments have elevated him, in my mind, to a whole new level of douchebag i didn't even know existed.

  • Benderman

    I love his Twitter feed and the fact that he doesn't hide behind a publicist.

  • I'm beyond happy that "The Lesser Hemsworth" is happening.

    Did I come up with that? I'm genuinely not sure if I came up with that or if I read it somewhere and thought it was from my own brilliant brain.

    I'm just gonna say I came up with that.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    How about like constellations? Hemsworth Majoris, Hemsworth minoris.

    One must be careful, though, lest they swap places from time to time like the Afflecks.

  • Quatermain

    As far as tattoos go, I like them on chicks, it adds to their allure. The more the better, as long as they're well done.

  • lubeg

    Awesome. Fez-O-Rama pr0n! Their work is amazing, incredibly comfortable and beautiful. I have two, myself, and can't wait for the Krampus fez to turn up this year to make it three :)

  • See, that Cinemablend piece left out some of my favorite Renner work: Neo Ned, 28 Weeks Later and (I know it isn't a movie, but I don't care) The Unusuals. It felt more like they were just ranking his most recent work rather than the whole body.

  • JoannaRobinson

    Mmmmmmm the whole body...

  • Such a nice one, don't you think? And I mean both kinds. :)

  • hippyherb

    lesser Hemsworth? ouch, and funny.

  • Snath

    I'm pro-tattoo. Usually it's a case of "the more, the better." I only have one, but if you know me on Facebook you know why I got it and how much I love it.

    I'm planning on more, hopefully for less horrible reasons.

  • Miley's Virus

    Finally, Miley's curtains match the drapes. I don't mean blond, I mean disheveled and stuck at wierd angles by gallons of biological and synthetic adhesives.

  • BWeaves

    Curtains and drapes are the same thing, which makes this even funnier.

    I think you mean curtains match the rug, or drapes match the carpet. Or perhaps the curtains match the drapes in a different room because the floor is tiled. Or she has a wood floor with no carpet, because she's engaged and he doesn't like dust mites.

  • Miley's Virus

    You are correct, Bweaves, I meant drapes and carpet. Regardless, I was going for something crass and I think that got through.

  • Perhaps, "her wallpaper matches the throw pillows"?

  • Lemon_Poundcake

    Ha! Also: eww.

  • MrFrye

    Who is Daria?

  • Lisa Bee

    Hmm, the kitchen hacks intrigued me quite a bit.
    But I'm going to be honest, you do NOT want to make a grilled cheese in the toaster. Simply because of the fact that toast POPS out like a rocket when it's done! I mean, what do you think will happen when you put it on it's side and it does that?
    Floor toast, people. Oozy floor toast.
    And yeah, I'm a lazy nitwit so it seemed like a good idea at the time.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    My mom [justifiably] freaked out at me once for trying to reheat a leftover hamburger in the toaster.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Eh, I wasn't so impressed. The eggs thing is such an old trick, I can barely believe that people don't know it. You can cut onions while holding your breath and avoid waiting for fifteen minutes. Also, turkish coffee tastes better than that filtered swill anyway.

    And the "re-open letter after putting it into the icebox" thing from the last one didn't work.

  • BWeaves

    Isn't this what toaster ovens were designed for?

  • Snath

    What if, and I'm just spit-balling here, you made the toaster face the wall? GENIUS!

  • BWeaves

    That Lego Tokyo is very beautiful. I LOVE Legos, and I've built some cool stuff in my distant past, but there's something inside me that wants to be the guy in the rubber suit that stomps the hell out of that Lego Tokyo.

    Sorry, I don't find tattoos attractive. Don't yell at me, it's my opinion. My Dad was in Nazi concentration camp as a child, so I have a lot of relatives that were tattooed against their will with registration numbers. Needless to say, I don't find tattoos cool. Also, since I'm old, I know that my tastes have changed over the years, and I don't wear the same style clothing or hairstyle or make up or glasses as I did 30 years ago. I'm glad none of it is tattooed on my body, because I want to be able to change my look as styles change. Nothing screams old as still wearing what you did in your 20's and that goes for your skin, too.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Btw - I never watched Daria growing up, but am delighted that's on MTV in the mornings now.

  • laylaness

    Hipsters ruin everything.

    Depressingly, the stuff in the movie theater popcorn that will kill you, is also, according to the article, in beer. We're all fucked.

  • Slash

    I saw the Renner "Bourne." I thought it was pretty good. I mean, yeah, I missed Matt a little bit, but then Jeremy did something badass (because he's been genetically enhanced) and I kinda forgot about the other movies. If the U.S. government has even half of the capability that the movie portrays, we should all be very, very frightened. Or peeved that we haven't yet received our genetic enhancements.

  • Erin S

    Wow, the guy in that Life Hacks video has all the hand-eye coordination of an actor in an infomercial who just can't do anything right on his own. All I could think while watching him hack away at that onion was that the screen was going to go all grayscale and say, "Tired of not being able to chop a fucking onion correctly?"

  • BWeaves

    Hahaha, exactly.

  • Oh, and Miley's haircut is cute and all I guess, but who's the dude in the brunette wig in that third pic down? That the aforementioned lesser Hemsworth?

  • Wow. Those statue pics just scream, "DOUCHENOZZLE!!!" huh?
    And for the love of godtopus, please don't show the lego pics to my kid. I'll be building freaking lego skylines until I'm old(er) and grey(er).

  • Groundloop

    Reading the Jezebel piece I was struck by the realization that a hard core Catholic Objectivist gets to pick the bits of Rand they like (Screw the poor! Government is evil!), and ignore the bits they don't like (all that abortion stuff), in much the same way "Christian Conservatives" get to pick the bits of Leviticus they like (Screw the gays!), while still enjoying the light weight breeziness of a nice cotton/poly blend.

    People suck is what I'm saying.

  • kirbyjay

    I'm praying ( and I'm not a prayer) that Mittens has single-handedly destroyed his shot at the presidency by nominating a batshit crazy ultra-conservative just like John McCain did with Moosekiller Palin.
    There are many, many Republicans in the US of A but they're not all right-wing fanatics......are they?

  • Groundloop

    Speaking as a liberal Canadian (so liberal that I vote NDP), I don't think that most people in the USA (if they've heard of him at all), perceive Ryan as a batshit crazy ultra con. He seems to have the reputation of a serious policy wonk, even though his "Path to Prosperity" budget falls strictly into what seems to me to be standard far right economic policy, that is: "I've got mine so f*ck you", and he's achieved virtually nothing as a member of Congress.

    I'm sure that there a still many reasonable Republicans, but in an era when, according to Richard Mourdock, who successfully primaried against, and crushed Richard Lugar, one of the most conservative Senators, "bipartisanship ought to mean Democrats coming to the Republican point of view".

    http://video.foxnews.com/v/162...

    So yeah, I'm sure there are reasonable Republicans, but for the most part they're keeping quiet.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Well, don't we kind of all do that with everything? I mean, that's the whole "salad bar Catholic" concept - pick the parts you do like ("love one another as I have loved you") and not the stuff you don't ("no pre-marital sex/birth control").

    I am hard-pressed to think of a single religion, philosophy, ethos, writer, piece of fiction, piece of critical thinking, or even movie where I think: yes! I agree with all of that.

  • Groundloop

    Good point. I agree that to some extent virtually everybody is a hypocrite to some degree, but I guess what I galls me (Galts me? BOOM!), is that the people that make the biggest noise about the type of stuff I pointed out, have potentially the biggest (negative) impacts on the society's that they're a part of.

    But I think one thing we can all agree on is that Mr. Pibb + Red Vines = Crazy Delicious.

  • No Pithy Name

    Ah, yes, Mr. Pibb. When I order it that way the pimply-faced teenager always asks, "Don't you mean Pibb Xtra?"
    No, I don't, punk.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    of course. That's a basic problem with liberals - we're too live & let live.

  • Snath

    "Galt me" has me laughing way more than it should.

  • Oh, the things I'd do to Wil Wheaton would make that fez spin off into orbit....

    Thank goodness I'm too poor to buy popcorn when I go to the movies. :/
