Tina Fey And Amy Poehler: Just When You Think You Know How Awesome They Are, The Bar Gets Raised

By TK | Pajiba Love | January 14, 2013 | Comments ()


Hello, gentle readers. It's your friendly neighborhood TK, here to delight you with a lovely assortment of links and goodies, in the hopes of brightening your day. It's opportunities like this that truly bring me joy, and I hope it brings you some too. Also, the truth is that your mother found you in a shoebox behind a whorehouse. I'm sorry you had to find out this way.

On to the links, you cretins.

Are you a Star Wars junkie? Do you have a penchant for typography and nifty decor? Then these Star Wars typography prints will look lovely in that crap hole you call a home. (Nerd Approved)

Sticking with Star Wars, the internet was in a tizzy over the weekend because the White House actually responded to this petition to build a functional Death Star. It was pretty awesome, but at the same time, I'm a little disappointed. If we're not building gigantic moon-sized space stations with planet-destroying laser beams, what the hell are we spending our defense budget on? (Uproxx)

I've never been a fan of the Metal Gear video game series, but this concept art for the next entry is simply amazing. Also, a little nuts. (Unreality)

Someone over on Facebook this weekend was lamenting how bad Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D was. I had predicted that "it's probably better than watching people poop on each other. Probably." Which is my uncomfortable segue into directing you to this chainsaw-themed comic over at the fantastically twisted Cyanide and Happiness.

Speaking of chainsaw massacres -- I know this has been around for a while, but how did I never notice it before?


There isn't any one specific page here to direct you to, because the entire site is absolutely stunning. Amazing photography and images from all around Africa. (The Africa They Never Show You)

Also stunning? Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who killed last night at the Golden Globes. This article, on the history of their friendship, is charming and funny and fascinating and makes me love them even more. Money quote: "I remember Tina Fey wrote a play about Catherine the Great fucking a horse and I thought, 'That lady is hot stuff, I wanna know her." (Vulture)

In other awards-related items, The Film Experience has chronicled the 100 oldest living Oscar recipients. Bonus points for Emmanuelle Riva, whose birthday is on the day of the Academy Awards show this year. (The Film Experience)

There is a band out of Japan called te' and they will blow your goddamn mind. Read the review of their newest album here. You won't regret it. (OneMetal)

Fassbender is single again. Ladies, moisten your lions. Dudes too, actually. (Celebitchy)

Tony Moore, co-creator of The Walking Dead (the comic) has a new series coming out called Fear Agent, described as "a booze-fueled space romp, in the aesthetic of EC's seminal classics of the 1950s." Aw, you had me at "booze-fueled." The first issue is now available for free in digital formats. (Boing Boing)

The Escapist's Ben Yahtzee rates his five best and five worst video games of 2012, in his usual brilliantly scathing fashion. Even non-gamers will love it. Go watch it. I SAID GO WATCH IT, JERKS. (Zero Punctuation)

Catzilla. Yes, I said Catzilla. Shut up and check it out. This three minutes of animation is better than the entire Roland Emmerich movie.

All too often, mashups are tired retreads. But then, someone mixes The Beatles with Massive Attack and, well, damn. (via Wax Audio)

  • chanohack

    This Beatles mashup is the best thing that's happened to me since Tina Fey's Taylor Swift joke last night.

  • Katylalala

    I wish so hard that the camera had panned to ol' Swifty for a reaction shot.

    Homegirl still gets shocked when she wins awards and clearly has trouble controlling her over-exaggerated expressions, so I can only imagine the face she pulled after that joke. I mean, girl was sitting in a room full of Hollywood big-wigs and many of the biggest celebrities on Earth and she got dissed to her face with what I bet she considers to be a very personal burn. I'm sure she was mortified and pissed and I doubt she hid it well, if at all.

  • Jezzer

    I'm sure she'll write a very strongly-worded song about Tina on her next album.

  • lowercase_ryan

    Catzilla holy shit!!

    Also: Cats are dicks.

  • Zombi3

    And not a sane person alive will argue with you.

  • That te' album is just as fantastic as our Chris makes it out to be - I've been listening to it on the way to and from work for the last month or so now, and have been finding its reckless, high-energy abandon to be the perfect thing to replenish flagging levels of motivation.

    Many thanks for the link, TK - I'm always pleased and humbled when you folks here at Pajiba shine a little light our way. :)

    Amy's breasts are mesmerizing.

  • Quatermain

    She does have appear to have some cans on her, doesn't she?

  • ,

    Quite jugulous. I was noticing that myself.

  • Protoguy

    One word: motorboat

  • LaineyBobainey

    "Speaking of chainsaw massacres — I know this has been around for a while, but how did I never notice it before?"

    Because now you have a toner for Jesse and you're obsessed with the Breakfast Club, because you think it will make him like you and then he'll smile at you and give you a fist pump and you'll sing songs together...

    But that's just a guess.

  • AudioSuede

    Whoa, you're not a fan of Metal Gear?!

    You, sir, have lost a little piece of my trust.

  • That's because it has aged terribly, and has atrocious pacing, dialogue, and "acting." And yes I grew up playing video games and still play video games. Which is ANOTHER reason not to like them, because you don't play them so much as watch the damn things. Sooooo overrated as a franchise.

  • AudioSuede

    Well, we'll have to agree to disagree on that point, because I believe the Metal Gear games are among the most innovative, brilliantly plotted, white-knuckle tense games ever made, and that I'll watch a million cutscenes if I get to play through the last few levels of Metal Gear Solid 2 again.

  • Guest

    FYI, Tony Moore and Rick Remender's FEAR AGENT has been out for years. Also, I'm that guy and I hate myself.

  • John W

    Hopefully Tina and Amy will work together on more future projects.

    Will Ferrell and Kristin Wiig joining them wouldn't be bad, just saying...

  • Gabs

    That Tina & Amy article was the greatest. It helped me kill another small portion of the pre-lunch work day, so thanks!

  • Slash

    Is it wrong that I kinda like being verbally abused by TK?

  • LaineyBobainey

    After all these years, it's kind of a Stockholm Syndrome reaction. Perfectly normal.

    What the?
    "On to the links, you cretins."
    There he is!

  • WD

    But my lions are already so moist!

  • e jerry powell

    They must have just finished a hunt. They drink blood as their primary source of fluid, you know?

    The things we gays learn on NatGeo Wild...

    The Tina Fey -Amy Poehler Vulture link is a not working :(
