Which Of These Geek Goddesses Would You Pick To Put The Ginger In Your Ale?

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


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?

Are you following Pajiba on Facebook or Twitter? Every time you do, Bill Murray crashes a wedding.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • John G.

    Ima have to go with Ygritte on this one. She knows how to cuddle up in the cold cold winterlands.

  • Vi

    As a resident of SF I understand the hipster talk ban, had one of those sitting next to me yesterday during dinner, really off-putting. "Oh you probably weren't in the mission in 97 but that was before THE GENTRIFICATION, it was like soooo much better then. Now there's like all these yuppie type expensive restaurants here -yech- it's so not 'the Mission'." (this was while he was chowing down on a $85 pre-fixe dinner 'in the Mission'.) The complete lack of self awareness throughout the rest of dinner was astounding, I was half hoping that he was trolling me because I was eavesdropping on his date.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Sadly, the first new episode of Doctor Who also airs next Sunday on BBC 1. No time advantage for Europeans here.

  • Fredo

    As much as I like Rose, I gotta go with Karen. Cause I know she likes to drink and party!

  • There needs to be a reality show with Bill Murray and Tom Hanks. The premise is they just go around crashing parties. No one would object, ever.

  • Guest

    Ygritte and Jon likely dating is almost as great as Fox and Scully possibly-maybe dating.

    Day. Made.

  • There are absolutely no spoilers in the Doctor Who premiere recap. Matt Smith made us promise not to give anything away.

  • DominaNefret

    How exactly is talking about who you fucked last night "hipster talk"? Isn't that more the opposite, being anti-intellectual in nature?

    But really, I clearly don't understand this whole hipster thing, since every single person I know who rags on hipsters I would identify as a hipster.

  • maybe they are doing it ironically or something..

  • BendinIntheWind

    My lifetime (semi-) irrational fear of squids and octopi has finally met its match.

    Hello, jellyfish photo! See you later in my nightmares!

  • I first fell for
    Rose Leslie on Downton Abbey! I was super exicted when she shows up on Game Of Thrones!

  • lowercase_ryan

    Rose Leslie is breathtakingly beautiful. She tops this list for sure. <3

  • I think we're spoiled with beautiful redheads on TV right now. But I'm not complaining. Redheads... rawr! Also no one has mentioned Deborah Ann Woll yet.

  • Upvoted HARD for the Deborah Ann Woll. Accept no substitutes.

  • no one

    Those are very attractive ladies. But if I am picking a ginger geek goddess it has to be Felicia Day.

  • Blake

    Great Choice EricaD... Molly Quinn and Debra Ann Woll would be close seconds.

  • malikvlc

    Headline had me running in here, expecting Felicia Day.

    I'm leaving disappointed. And out of breath.

  • shardik

    I know, f'real. Now how do I get rid of this erection....

  • You go to your bunk.

  • malikvlc

    Geek Moment of Zen: my home network and domain are named "shardik". Geek goosebumps.

  • shardik

    Yeah, hi, I'm your domain, forgot to tell you I've become self-aware. Richard Adams is my god
