Woody Harrelson And Matthew McConaughey Are Here To Fill The Bro-Shaped Hole "Entourage" Left In Your Hearts
Speaking of quality TV, you might soon be changing the way you watch. It looks like Hulu is going to be shifting their business model so their service is no longer free. Similarly, Apple is looking to compete with Netflix with their new Apple TV/streaming feature. Oh, Jobs, you taunt me with your expensive treats from beyond the grave. (Cult of Mac)
Speaking of the insanely rich, our very own Ranylt sent over this article wherein Stephen King basically begs the government to raise his taxes. Intriguing. (The Daily Beast)
Screen rant has a schedule of the upcoming TV finales so you won't be caught unawares as I was. Seriously, "The Good Wife," that was your season finale? TELL ME WHO KALINDA'S HUSBAND IS RIGHT THE EFF NOW. (Screen Rant)
And while we're on the subject of tough ladies (Kalinda is the toughest), I thought this article on the current state of superheroines was interesting, particularly in light of the piece Dustin wrote on the emasculation of Superheroes. Are there enough superheroines around? Do our daughters have figures they can look up to? (The Mary Sue)
The Awl presents the definitive list of white music stolen by black people. OH YOU HEARD ME. (The Awl)
In all my years of reading gossip blogs, I have never seen a pregnant celebrity receive as much abuse as Jessica Simpson did. Well, the long national nightmare is over. Jessica birthed her child and is, Celebitchy snarks, likely enjoying a scotch on the rocks at this very moment. Well wouldn't you. Simpson gave her kid a totally normal name too, so eve-wait, it was a baby GIRL? Oh, no, nonononono. (Celebitchy)
This is an amazing story of a 90 year old man who has been pirating movies to send overseas to our troops. God bless America. (Gawker)
Check out this brilliant profile on Samuel L. Jackson. My favorite bit:
Jules was the moral center of "Pulp Fiction," Jackson told me recently, "because he carried himself like a professional." The same can be said of Jackson as an actor. "Before Jules," he went on, "my characters were just 'The Negro' who died on Page 30. Every script I read, 'The Negro' died on Page 30." He thundered in character as Jules for a moment, repeating his point in saltier language, then returned to himself and said: "After Jules, I became the coolest [expletive] on the planet. Why? I have no clue. I'm not like Jules. It's called being an actor." (NYT)
Finally, you know I'm a sucker for these "History of Music" videos. This one features the progression of whistling in pop music. Caution, the whistling is high-pitched, so shut your dogs away.
