Good morning my lying Lannisters and stalwart Starks. Did you George RR Martin fans get your copy of "A Dance With Dragons But Without Any F*cking Spoilers" yet? Did you stay up all night reading? Well here's some good news/bad news. Martin has said that he might have more than two more books in him. He might need three or more to wrap up the saga. Mostly, at this point, my tasty Targaryens, I think he's messing with you. (io9)

Speaking of drawn out bookish sagas, the final Harry Potter film had its New York premiere last night. I would do another whole post on the fashion therein but I'm all out of ways to say how cute Neville Longbottom has become. (But, seriously, Neville, damn.) Evil Beet has a nice overview of the red carpet clothing including the hotel drapes Emma Watson safety pinned to a corset. (Evil Beet)

Are you confused by all the Pottermania? Never fear, my muddled Muggles, this lovely (fake) Criterion collection will clear it up for you. (Potter Criterion)

In the spectacular DVD vernacular, Life Hacker brings you 10 Real World Easter Eggs And Cheat Codes. I knew about some, but I did NOT know I could go straight to leaving a voicemail without having to call a person. My awkward phone break-ups just got a helluva lot easier. (Life Hacker)

Speaking of real-life cheating, the Republicans in Wisconsin have put a slew of fake Democratic candidates on the ballot in order to muddy the recall elections. (Did I read that correctly, or are they writing the fakies in?) Apparently this is an accepted practice. Tricksy. (Chicago Tribune)

And while we're talking about muddy politics, I do not know what is in the water in Quartzsite, Arizona. Apparently the mayor is out? Potentially they have declared martial law and/or a state of emergency? Mass hysteria?! Do we have any AZ residents who know exactly what is going on? (Washington Post)

Because, um, I don't mean to alarm you guys, but I'm pretty sure this is what happened to Atlantis right before it sank. That's the legend, right? Also, looks like they found Atlantis. . .again. How many Atlanti does that make now? This one is off the coast of Scotland. (Boing Boing)

Here's a story of political turmoil with a happy ending (so far). The Republic of South Sudan officially seceded from Sudan on last week, ending a 50-year struggle marked by decades of civil war. Here are some gorgeous photos of the South Sudanese people enjoying their new-found sovereignty. (The Big Picture)

See, those photos are beautiful. These photos of the dead-inside looks people have on their faces when they stare at computers are. . .creepy. Frankly, this whole project is creepy. Because the only thing worse than people staring at computers is you, person staring at people staring at their computers. (People Staring At Computers)

While we're on the subject of creepy, some may think these photos of Tilda Swinton (aka SWINTON) from W magazine are on the creep side, I think they are just rad and fierce. Below is a little taste of SWINTON in all her violet glory. I really suggest checking out the entire gallery. (W Magazine)

If I give Tilda a "V" for "Violet" then on the other end of the ROYGBIV spectrum is Mila Kunis with an "R" for "REALLY?!" Listen, I love Mila. I especially love that charming little story where Justin Timberlake peer pressured her into going out with a total internet rando. (Yes, yes, a US soldier, but still a rando.) And don't get me wrong she gives a super cute and down-to-earth seeming interview in GQ and I don't even mind the underwear situation on the cover. But there is something about that mirror shot that skeeves me out. Is it because she looks like she's wearing my grandmother's sandals? (Celebitchy)

Here, Mila, let a flag-clad Helen Mirren show you how to pull of classy/lurid. Not an easy combo to master. (Esquire)

Okay, okay, enough with the links about lovely and unusual ladies. Sorry, they are like crack to me. Speaking of addictive substances, according to a new study the same parts of our brain which crave drugs also crave salt. Um, having drunkenly consumed half a box of Chex Party Mix last night, I'll believe that. (Science Daily)

No I was not playing the "Law & Order: Sports Utility Vehicle Drinking Game." How dare you suggest such a thing. (Warming Glow)

Did you know, dear readers, that I play the ukulele? I do. It's true. That's why I have no remorse in giving you this exceedingly dorky ukulele version of Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" which James Hill performed at Uke Fest last year. Yup, Uke Fest. Deal with it.

Finally, I'll have you know, I think of you all as The Men and Women Who Know Too Much. What I want to know, my dears, is which Hitchcock film is your favorite? While you're watching this cute little Hitchcock Cookbook video, I want you to ponder that question and then drop your response in the comments. If you want. Que sera, sera. (Laughing Squid)

Joanna Robinson wishes her favorite Hitchcock film were Suspicion but as she cannot stand Joan Fontaine's simper, she has to choose Notorious.
