Would You Give Up Meat For A Crack At One Of These Delectable Hollywood Vegans?
We're going to start today's link round-up with some of the most impressive pop-culture posters I've seen in awhile. They're a) totally affordable b) on a 2 for 1 sale and c) gorgeous. Cheers, Katsings, I'm currently deciding on which will be my fourth. WHAT? They're on sale! (Etsy)
Speaking of gorgeous, colorful things, check out these lush snaps from the 2012 Holi Festival of Colors. (Colossal)
These intricate, nerdy cakes would be a lot more appealing if fondant didn't taste like gushy cotton. Still they're purty to look at. Particularly the dino one. (The Mary Sue)
io9 has compiled some of the greatest unintentionally hilarious lines from sci-fi/fantasty. #8? That's my all-time favorite. All hail Mark Hamill's delivery. (io9)
In a follow-up to Dustin's fabulous Think Piece on why it's wrong to bully Chick-Fil-A employees because of their employer's beliefs, here's news that a particular store will be sponsoring Nashua's Gay Pride Festival. Individual CFAs, being franchises, can make up their own damn mind. Ain't that nice? (Boing Boing)
If we're going to celebrate any brand of fried chicken, oughtn't it be Los Pollos Hermanos? (Hobo Trashcan)
While we're on the subject of food, I have to ask: If I partake not of the meat, nor the breastmilk, nor the ovum, of any creature with a face, will that make me better than you? It seems to be working for these peeps. (Socialite Life)
Is this old news? That Ghostbusters III is officially proceeding without Bill Murray? In his statement Dan Aykroyd declares "It's time to make the third one." Is it, Dan? IS IT? (Nerd Approved)
These Tequila-based popsicles are not only tastiest-looking way to endure a heat wave, but they also remind me of my favorite scene from "Black Books." Riddle me this, though. Wouldn't the alcohol have trouble freezing? Or am I forgetting my science again? (Stylist)
Speaking of intoxicating science, an intriguing paper has been released detailing the myriad, concret scientific breakthroughs that were achieved in the 60s because of LSD. You "Fringe" fans already knew that, didn't you? (Boing Boing)
The BFI's publication "Sight and Sound" has released their annual "50 Greatest Films List." This list (just one in an ocean of lists we see daily) is significant for two reasons. 1) The caliber of voters (filmmakers and critics alike) and 2) the fact that Citizen Kane was ousted from its #1 spot for the first time in the list's history. Find out which flick took its place. SAN FRANCISCO, BABY! (BFI)
Leaving the highbrow for a minute, Vulture runs through the advantages and disadvantages of a few of pop-culture's most famous appendages including Count Rugan's 6th finger and (topically) that third breast from Total Recall. (Vulture)
Rumor has it TPTB have already selected next year's Oscar host. I'm for it! (CB)
Now, I like a few more Shyamalan movies than most. Signs for one. (Cracked-out but compellingSigns theory here.) But even I have to admit that his involvement in any project at this point is a recipe for disaster. This time he's taking on TV and dragging "Buffy"'s Marti Noxon down with him. (WG)
Finally, in the funniest thing he's done in years, Will Ferrell goes full Twi-hard over the break-up of K-Stew and R. Patz. It's a delight.
