As Alanis Morissette sang, “YOU LIIIIIIVE! YOU LEARRRRRRN!” etc. etc. Today I lived, AND I learned… about some hot goss, straight outta Hollywood! It all started when I shared a lil’ story on the Pajiba Slack channel, about Josh Brolin being all like “Nah bro, I’m cool thx” when James Cameron tried to get him on board for the upcoming Avatar sequels. The reason the story enticed me, aside from the mental image of Cameron getting pissed at motherfuckin’ Thanos, was because I had completely forgotten that Avatar was not only A THING, but A THING THAT WAS GOING TO CONTINUE TO HAPPEN. Turns out, “forgetting” and “Avatar” go hand in hand, thanks to one man: Whatshisface.
Here was our enlightening conversation:
So, our lesson for today: Jennifer Garner may be winning at the whole “moving on” thing (if Dustin is to be believed), Chris Pine has great taste, and there is a documented term for anything that is just completely and utterly forgettable. Our mission for the rest of the year will be to get “The Worthington Effect” entered into either the Oxford English Dictionary or the next update to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5).
You know, if we can remember to campaign for it.
