Your Daily Dose Of Schadenfreude: Russell Brand Narrowly Escapes Death

By Joanna Robinson | Pajiba Love | August 2, 2012 | Comments ()


Annie Leibovitz continues to feather her retirement nest with a few more Disney Dream Portraits. These two are not as fun as some of her previous ones, but Russell Brand is sort of perfect as James Tiberius Hook and the behind the scenes shots of Jason Segel, Will Ferell and Jack Black will put appropriately goofy smiles on your face. (Disney Parks)

I think over the past few years I've featured a few geeky wedding/engagement photos. Yeah, these two take the cake. (Sorry.) I was enjoying their "Firefly," "Battlestar," Star Wars hijinks and then I saw the photo below. It was like a gut punch of emotion. Well played, Newlywed Nerds. Well played. (Fashionable Geek)

One of my personal Nerd heroes, Patton Oswalt, has written an open letter to both Comedians and Executives. They're as thoughtful and funny, as you would expect. (/Film)

Dustin goes elbow deep into Breaking Bad minutia. No spoilers but the theories will blow your mindhole. (WarmingGlow)

Gasping for some news of the next season of "Game of Thrones"? Then have I got some bland images for you! Well, unless you're a huge House Tully fangirl or boy. Here are some (non-spoilery) photos of the Riverrun set. (Nerd Approved)

The boys from "Breaking Bad" cover Rolling Stone. Those are some handsome chrome domes. (Celebitchy)

Now I don't mind your baby photos clogging up my Facebook newsfeed. I love them. But some people might think they're annoying as f*ck. NOT ME. Other people. For those people, may I present "" Which is, as far as I can tell, completely legit. (The High Definite)

Presuming you already moistened your lions watching the new "Doctor Who" trailer, allow the lads over at Den of Geek to break it down for you frame by frame. DINOS!! (Den Of Geek)

Having tripped the light fantastico yesterday evening on some Nighttime Theraflu, I'm not over-eager to try out these 9 Fictional Movie Drugs. But your mileage may vary. (Maxim)

In case you missed it yesterday, NPR had a rather engrossing breakdown of how Americans spend their money organized by class. (GOOD)

Since we all had fun drooling over that made-up Fillion photo yesterday, let's go ahead and slaver all over this very real image of him from the set of Whedon's Much Ado About Nothing. Amy Acker and Alexis Denisof also feature. (Hey Guys)

And now, for your daily Olympics links. First, you can find out which Olympic athlete body most resembles your own. Ahm, are the Table Tennis players an option? (Neatorama). And then here's a bunch of divers and figure skaters making awkward faces. That's about as technical and athletic as I get, folks! (Unreality)

Speaking of Games, Catching Fire has cast their Mags. IT'S MAGDA! Ahem, I mean, apparently she was in "Sex And The City" or something? I guess. I wouldn't know. (Facebook)

Finally, early word is that there will be a Prometheus sequel starring the few people who made it out of the last movie alive. That is not a spoiler. What, you thought they all made it off the monster alien planet? Anyway, as you all know, I am one of, like, ten people who loved Promethues. So I'm excited. Bonus news? Lindelof won't be involved. (THR)

And because I can never get enough of this stuff, here are two Lifehacker videos. The one is pretty great, but the second one? With that battery trick? That's a life changer.

Joanna Robinson will be with you shortly. She's busy putting her sneakers in the freezer.
