Sometimes I get a little beleaguered, dear readers, with all the Internet I have to look at every day. But then I found out that there are folks who have the job of reading the worst of the internet. Like Chris Hansen worst. (I initially typed Ryan Hansen. Sorry, Dick!) Anyway, if you want to read about the man who reads about the scum of the internet, today is your lucky day! (Buzzfeed)

Check out this fantastic guest blog post by Leslye Headlund, the director of Bachelorette which many are seeing as a darker follow-up to Bridesmaids but which I'm choosing to call an unofficial "Party Down" sequel. (Hey, Kyle!) Regardless, check out this interview to find out what it's like to work with Pajiba favs Lizzy Caplan and Adam Scott and how Rushmore played an integral role in Leslye's deflowering. These are totally normal associations to have.* (TFE)

You know Tom Hanks is the best, right? OH YOU DOUBT ME? Photographic proof: (Gawker)

Neil Armstrong passed away this weekend. In order to honor his incredible life, you should take a minute and watch him narrowly escape from a fiery crash. (Boing Boing)

Polish up your chrome domes or don your favorite purple cardigan for Vulture's "Breaking Bad" look alike contest. (Vulture)

I want to go live in the SF restaurant where "hipster talk" is officially banned. YEAH! Stick that in your Toms and smoke it, hipsters! (Laughing Squid)

These underwater images are incredible but why did no one ever tell me that some jelly fish look like terrifyingly tentacled eviscera monsters? (Clione)

Also, dear, kindly readers. When did Leonardo DiCaprio start looking like Megamind? (Celebitchy)

Dustin puts forth an impassioned argument as to why Netflix oughtn't release all 13 new "Arrested Development" episodes on the same day. It's bad for America, man! (WG)

Friend of the site, Joel Murphy, had a chance to attend the Season 7 "Doctor Who" premiere in NY. I haven't read his report yet due to my intense spoiler paranoia, but I was pleased to see that Matt Smith and Karen Gillan arrived in a DeLorean. You can't buy that kind of twee/geeky synchonricity. If you've already seen the episode or don't care at all about spoilers, check out Joel's write-up. (Hobo Trashcan)

Speaking of geeky ginger goddesses, many of us fell head over snowy *ss for Rose Leslie aka Ygritte from "Game of Thrones." Looks like we're not the only ones who did. Good job, you must know something, Jon Snow. (TMZ)

*O.R. they?
