Which Would You Prefer In Your Rom Coms? More Blood Or More Helen Mirren? What If You Didn't Have To Choose?
I dunno if there are pharmaceuticals that will muffle a shrieking id (Shrieking Ids, band name, dibs), but scientists are reportedly working on drugs to improve our ethical behavior. Make us more moral and empathetic, etc. Yup, that's some Phillip K. Dick sh*t right there. (The Guardian)
I mean, I'm already, like, FLOODED with empathy. Take this potential government shut-down debacle and all the government workers who will be forced into an unpaid furlough. My heart bleeds. Except for you, DMV employees who hung up on me repeatedly yesterday. You guys can go eff yaselves. (Gawker)
On that F-note, Holy Schmexy Gender-Bending Justice League, Bat(wo)man! My favorite detail? The forelock on Super(wo)man. What's yours? It's Thor's tiny-whities, isn't it? Sicko. (Flickr)
Now some people dress as superheroes, and some people believe themselves to be superheroes. I'm not talking about adorable Kick-Assery, I'm talking about this young pilot who thought he could beach-land his plane because he had "seen it on TV." The best part of this article is how much the NYT reporter obviously HATES this kid and how little he tries to hide his disdain. (NYT)
The real heroes? Those kids at Emerson College who staged a musical production of The Human Centipede. Oh yes. YOU HEARD ME. I haven't watched this video yet, but I can't wait to see the choreography and they must have saved a bundle on lyricists. . . (Movieline)
If someone could make an infographic about this infographic about infographics that would make it The Human Centipede of charts, right? Or the Inception of charts? I guess we'd need an inexplicable snow fortress for that. (The Curious Brain)
Speaking of JGL and dreams, how long do ya'll sleep? Apparently some people only need to sleep a few hours. I prefer to sleep ALL the hours AND drink coffee by the vatful. So. . .you know. . .that's healthy. (WSJ)
You're still thinking about The Human Centipede, aren't you? I'm sorry. Here, look at this cuddly Disney version of the Loch Ness Monster. It's for their new hand-drawn short and I think she looks like Pete's Dragon! Boo Bop Bopbop Bop! (io9)
Wow, I just lost ALL the cool points, didn't I? I shall now distract you with the exciting news that the final season of "Friday Night Lights" is available on Netflix! Not on Instant, no, but on their disc thingers. I know, you're thinking "THE MAIL?! WHO USES THE MAIL ANYMORE, JOANNA!?!" I've seen the season, my little Dillon Lions, trust me, it's worth all that exhausting ripping and peeling and sticking. (Warming Glow)
The following video portion is a trilogeeee of fake film trailers. First, this nifty X-Men: First Class trailer that almost makes me forget I hate January Jones. Almost.
Then, this delightful spoof trailer of every Boston movie cliché.
And, finally, I won't tell you the title of the fake movie being advertised here, because of spoilers, but it stars Helen Mirren, Billy Crystal, Adam Scott, Maya Rudolph, gentrophilia and some fake blood.
