Those May Not Have Been Bowie's Balls In Labyrinth, But Never Doubt The Authenticity Of The Package

By Joanna Robinson | Pajiba Love | September 27, 2012 | Comments ()


Fresh off the heels of his amazing guest stint on "The Daily Show" last night, comes the news that Sir Patrick Stewart will likely reprise his role as Professor X in the upcoming X-Men sequel. I confess that when I heard a few months ago that the plot line would involve time travel, I crossed all my appendages that Stewart and McKellan would return. (Nerd Approved)

Oh, Pajibans. I know I include a lot of cute pop culture t-shirt links and some of y'all are tired of them. You're likely shouting "Not the tees! AHHHHHHH Ahgarbulagabah my eyes! my eyes! AHHHHHHHH! AHHHHHHHhhhurgh!" (Worst Creation Tees)

I know I said yesterday that those "Breaking Bad" kids had the best Halloween costume, but, holy crap, all the props and gropes to whomever dresses as The Rubber Man from "American Horror Story." (Vulture)

For those of you keeping track, J.K. Rowling's first book for adults, "The Casual Vacancy" was released today. It's received, erm, mixed reviews. Sorry, Jo, guess you'll just have to go swim around in your vat of money instead. (The Awl)

Soooo...butt chugging...was that included in Idiocracy? Or have we shot past Idiocracy and are now in the Dumbf*ckery phase of history? (Gawker)

To relieve your disgust with the above story I present to you this stingray photobomb. It's my everything today. (Reddit)

Apparently blowing on game cartridges actually only made things worse. Whelp, there goes the only thing I knew about technology. Pass the bum* wine. (Mental Floss)

I love when the internet gives creepy things the Seuss treatment. Here's ol' HP Lovecraft. What rhymes with Cthulhu? (Neatorama)

This candy bar wrapped in pizza dough, was, I suspect somewhere in Idiocracy...or, possibly, why we all end up floating blobs of goo in Wall-E. Cheers, Pizza Hut. (Food Beast)

And in exciting TV casting news, Stockard Channing will be hopping on board "The Good Wife" this season. Ah, FLOTUS, I've missed ye. And Olivia Munn will be bringing her shark-eyed charm to "New Girl." YES, DAMNIT, I'M EXCITED. If you're not on board the Munn train, then you clearly didn't watch her in "The Newsroom." Girl has chops. (Just Jared)

I've got a one-two punch of nostalgia for you this afternoon. First of all, I think most of us already knew that it wasn't Bowie himself operating those glass balls in Labyrinth, but it's nice to see the real talent, Micheal Moschen, get his props.

And, to prepare you for the awesomeness of Rian Johnson's Looper, here's a fantastic supercut of "how time travel works." The real answer is, as always, wibbily wobbily.

    Thanks to the header photo, I've had Dance Magic Dance stuck in my head all night. Which is just fine with me.

    Ok, about blowing cartridges, I have a little story to share: I have a very old iPhone, and I didn't know it was possible to call an iPhone "very old" until I started comparing mine with others and later when I realized that no app that is released today works on it. Anyway, it stopped charging, at first there was some difficulty to make the cable be recognized by it, and then it didn't recognize at all. I guessed there was a trouble with the slot, but didn't know what to do. So I was looking at it, and I noticed how much it looked like an old video game cartridge. And in a moment of desperate inspiration I blew it. Surprisingly, it worked! And now, every time I try to charge it or plug to the computer it doesn't work unless I blow it first. So I didn't even click in that link above, I don't wanna know, my iPhone works just like a Super Nintendo cartridge and that's awesome.

    So basically fraternity members will use any excuse to shove things up their asses? Or to shove something up someone else's ass? That's how I'm reading this (the "butt chugging" item).

    Fantastic. The future of our country is in excellent (albeit sticky) hands.

  • e jerry powell

    I would go even further and suggest that they need no excuse at all. Pretext, perhaps, but never an excuse.

  • e jerry powell

    As ashamed as I am to know this, Joanna, wine enemas have been a thing for some thirty-odd years. At least.

    I have known people to swear up and down that they weren't drinking, because technically they were telling the truth. They were just shoving it up their asses instead of swilling it through their mouths.

    I have been on this earth way too long.

  • The Other Agent Johnson

    I'll never forgive you, whoever you are, for making me aware of this.

  • DarthCorleone

    Can anyone give me the primer on which movies all those Nicolas Cages represent?

  • TK

    I think the best answer to that question can probably be found here.

  • ElvisCostelegram

    What percentage of supercuts are cut to the "In the Hall of the Mountain King?"

  • Sara_Tonin00

    See, now for a second I thought you were talking about the haircutting chain, and I had this awesome flash of walking through a mall and seeing broke people get their hair tortured to the rousing repetitious strains of Grieg.

  • anikitty

    Call me crazy (on second thought don't!), but that's a ray not a stingray. The crippled or dead tourists would deter business if it was a stingray. I don't know what kind of reaction I'd have to being mounted by a sea creature...far left: she found out her dad died, in the middle: atomic wedgie, on the right: act like nothing happened and this will all be over.

  • becks

    It's a stingray. They're tame and in that photo the guide is lifting one behind the girls. They eat breadcrumbs and socialize with tourists here in Grand Cayman. They'll actually nudge you, as a dog would, to pet them! So cute! You can check out more pictures if you search Stingray City.

    Sweet legwarmers for dancing the magic dance.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    That stingray photobomb is easily the best thing I've seen all day. (What, I watched the Patrick Stewart Daily Show appearance yesterday)

  • athena23

    Best photobomb ever? Best photobomb ever. Seriously. The trend might as well end right now. No human can ever hope to trump that stingray. (The "smile" is what sells it. "Hey, guys, whazzup?" I hear it saying. Not that I anthropomorphize much.)

  • Leelee

    athena23 - I just upvoted your comment but also appeared to manage to downvote at the same time. My apologies - anyone casually chatting about anthropomorphism deserves no downvotes.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    just re-click on the down-vote (or any upvote) and it will reverse itself.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I think Stingray Photobomb needs to become a meme. With "Hey, guys, whazzup?" as every caption.

    someone with Photoshop skillz, make it so.
