The Sky Is Falling, But Don't Panic: Just Stare Into the Eyes of The Dinklage

By Sarah Carlson | Pajiba Love | February 15, 2013 | Comments ()


Happy Friday, y'all!

Here's hoping your Valentine's Day was less shocking and overwhelming than this woman's. I always imagined a Jumbotron proposal at some sporting event would be disappointing, but this "flash wedding" on "Good Morning America" takes the hope-you-like-what-we-picked-out-for-you cake. (Jezebel)

Today, apparently, is a huge day for the infidelity market. Feb. 15 is website Ashley Madison's (where married people go for hook-ups) biggest day for new users. Where do most of the cheaters come from, outside of the top spot of Washington, D.C.? Austin and Houston, in second and third place. (Texas Monthly)


A less destructive way to pass your time this Friday is by watching stuff fly through the sky and hopefully not hitting us. It's true: If you don't have a telescope or binoculars handy today, log online to view live feeds the asteroid 2012 DA14 coming within 28,000 km of Earth. (Wired) Scientists are saying the meteor that exploded over Russia isn't related, but if we all aren't here tomorrow, well ... See ya. (CNN)

Oh yes, I used a GIF. Want more? This trend piece on how they are "enjoying an unlikely vogue as the digital accessory of the moment" is adorable and was probably written by your grandmother. (NY Times)

More fierce than adorable, Beyonce, fresh off her win at the Super Bowl, is doing her damnedest to own the airwaves again Saturday. Head over to OWN to see Oprah's exclusive interview with Blue Ivy's mama before the star's documentary, "Life is But a Dream," airs on HBO. (TV Guide)

Did you miss this live chat with Joel McHale? It is greatness. His favorite scotch, btw, is Macallan 30, and he'd like you to send him some. (Uproxx)

Despite the movie's stupid name, the fabulous Peter Dinklage has joined the cast of X-Men: Days of Future Past alongside Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Hugh Jackman. So much hotness. Now we just need Magneto and Professor X to hook up ... (Celebitchy)


Here's a motherf***ing double-feature: An oral history of Pulp Fiction (Vanity Fair) and the etymology of "motherf***er itself (Slate).

You know who looked like a mofo with all her fancy hats? Bess Truman. (BuzzFeed)

You know who's the biggest badass right now? This guy. Yes, this video premiered yesterday, but whatever -- it's the gift that keeps on giving. JT 4 EVAH.

He and Jay-Z are going to tour. It will be perfect. (Rolling Stone)

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    It has been a long, long time since I read "Days of Future Past," but if the major speculation around Dinklage's casting is that he's playing Puck (surely the most prominent X-Men-adjacent Little Person*, so that's plausible)--how does that work? Is Puck even remotely involved in that plotline?

    *Apparently there is great foolishness over Puck's origin story, because Bill Mantlo did not bother to look up "achondroplasia."

    Whom else would Dinklage be playing? Are they shoving him into a Nimrod suit? Gaahhh!

  • Boothy K

    Also: Re: JT: WTF is up with the smoking??????? Listen, I have been known to be an avid smoker in the past and though I no longer partake in the habit, I truly enjoyed smoking and don't begrudge anyone their smokes...However, a guy who sings (that high) and dances that well is NOT a smoker and it creeps me out that the image of the healthy smoker is being perpetuated by someone like this (who I've never really been on board with, never understood his appeal).

    ....Dismounting soapbox now...

  • Ben

    I figured the smoking was part of the whole throwback to the oldschool rat pack era that the entire filmclip had.

  • PG13

    Damn, ya'll niggaz is on JT's head for that video, lol. Props to David Fincher for doin his thang on that track tho

  • I can't believe PLove didn't point out Fillion's VD win on Twitter. That's why he's loved beyond merit - and his merit isn't nothing.

  • e jerry powell

    I can tell you all about the nature of adultery in Texas, yup.

    In other news: DAMN, Bruce Willis was on the way to the gun show.

  • Cody McKee

    "Despite the movie’s stupid name..."

    You stop that right now. Days of Future Past is an awesome story.

  • I feel like its missing a definite article. Shouldn't it say "Days of the Future Past" ? That's how I read it in my head every single time. (although now that I went out on the limb and said definite article I know that the grammar police are going to come out to yell at me that it's wrong).

  • Michelle

    "Despite the movie’s stupid name"

    Srsly?! Days of Future Past was one of the better X-Men storylines.

  • Deidra

    As a storyline, yes. As a name for a film, no. Srsly.

    I do not. Get. The whole Justin Timberlake thing. At. ALL. His music is crap and he seems like a frat douche. And he's not good looking or attractive, and I would know, because I am so very shallow. It's like a career with me.

  • QueeferSutherland

    He's no Lena Dunham, amirite?

    Timberlake is talented, funny, self deprecating and charismatic. The dude makes music when wants to, dresses up in leotards and soup costumes for sketch comedy shows, and holds his own in academy nominated movies. He's managed to avoid becoming a boy band punchline by working his ass off in multiple disciplines, but yeah, he's an ugly frat douche who makes bad music. Gotcha.

  • Maguita NYC

    You're not alone. I can't stand the sound of his voice, talking or otherwise. Do not understand the physical attraction either. And up until now, the only amazingness about "JT" is his douchiness. In that, he absolutely excels.

  • Slash

    Yeah, that song kinda blows and I thought the recent consensus is that Timberlake is kind of a douche. He's in the douche penalty box now. He can get out of it by just going away for awhile or doing something incredibly awesome, like resuscitating a kitten or changing a flat tire on an old lady's car on the side of a busy highway.

  • PaddyDog

    Meteors? Yeah, right. Right beside a zinc factory!

    I would like to welcome our new alien overlords and remind them that the best metals needed to maintain their civilization can be harvested in Asia and Eastern Russia. There's absolutely no need to look any further west. No. Need. At. All.

  • 724wd

    truly AWFUL song. ALMOST as bad as sexyback. i have nothing against JT as a person, but his music is atrocious!

  • opiejuankenopie

    Hated sexyback when I first heard it. But then it fucked my brain and now I need a smoke every time I hear it.

  • Wow man, i wish JTinkerbell and Beyondsickofyou would give it a rest.

  • Orleanas

    While I am and have been sick of Beyawnce for quite some time, I must admit to being happy to have JT back with the music. I like the retro aspect of this song.

  • DenG

    Yeeeah--who's got the stopwatch and which timekeeper is allowing more than 15 minutes to all the See Me Hear Me fools? What I want to know.

  • lowercase_ryan

    While I don't care for the song, I am full on team Timberlake BECAUSE... Jay Z did his last tour with Kanye and I want SO BADLY to believe that Jay Z has kicked Kanye to the curb for JT and I want to believe he did so because he and Beyonce HATE Kim Kardasian. I want Kanye to suffer mightily for his transgressions, namely the one called Kim.

  • Bert_McGurt

    I think it's time we start getting excited because of what the Russian "meteor" strike heralds - the imminent return of Nikola Tesla!

  • Maguita NYC

    And here I was looking for a baby Kal-El.

    I know. Ha. ha.

  • Bert_McGurt

    Warner Brothers are going f*cking ALL OUT with these Man of Steel marketing stunts!

  • Maguita NYC

    Nice! wish I thought of that one first, rockin' Bert!

  • Mrs. Julien

    [fingers crossed]

  • Nadine

    That is legitimately the worst fucking song I have heard in a long, long, long time.

  • F'mal DeHyde

    Was he saying "shit tie" cuz that's what I heard...

  • Nadine

    I have no idea. I just sort of glaze over. It is the most boring, disjointed piece of crap. And his hair looks STUPID.
