How cute are those two with their sneakers? Golden Globes Sunday can’t get here fast enough. And how were your Holidays, my little jingle bells? What did you get up to over the brea-ON SECOND THOUGHT, DON’T TELL ME.
Me? My holiday was pretty tame. I spent much of it catching up on the TV shows I’ve Been Meaning To Watch. One of them was the superb “Portlandia,” and just in time as they’ve released this absolutely delightful video on TV spoilers. Uh, it contains spoilers.
Speaking of TV catch-up, here are the most important TV dates to look forward to in 2013 including the return of “Community,” “Arrested Development,” and “Game of Thrones” and the end of “Breaking Bad.” (WG)
Lord, I had forgotten how cat-faced those White Walkers are.
Check this list of professions to found out if your co-workers are actually psychopaths, or if their passive-agressive comments just make it seem that way. (Boing Boing)
Pixar has released some concept art for four of their upcoming projects. The Dia De Los Muertos sketch looks delightfully like old-school Disney (hopefully without the old-school racism). (Coming Soon)
I lived in Mexico for a bit so the concept of chocolate covered bugs doesn’t faze me even a little, but the rest of the entries on this “weird foods covered in chocolate” list are seriously horf-worthy. Slim Jims? Really? (Neatorama)
Pajiba darling, Jennifer Lawrence, went all sex kitten for “Vanity Fair.” I’m glad to see her requisite “Baywatch” red bathing suit photo made an appearance. (Celebitchy)
Jay-Z is collaborating on the Great Gatsby soundtrack. I know I’m often stuffy about book-related things, but after the fantastic Django Unchained soundtrack, I’m ready for a little more anachronism. (FSR)
Speaking of book-related things, have you signed up for Cannonball Read 5 yet? I hope you will! I know there are some of you quiet, bookwormy types out there and it’s an excellent way to get involved with the site. (Cannonball Read 5)
And speaking of Django, did you see that there are action figures for the Tarantino revenge flick? Nathaniel has some suggestions as to how you could pose Goggins and Foxx. Even weirder? The Les Miserables Street Fighter-style video game. (TFE)
I’m not going to embed this Gollum/Smeagol rap battle video, mostly because I’m ashamed at how loudly that awkward fish pun made me laugh. (io9)
Speaking of fish, my beloved Ze Frank is here with some facts about the Angler Fish. Trust me. It’s worth it.
And there’s something a little too soft about my heart this time of year because, yes indeed, I’m posting a cat video. So enjoy these common New Year’s Resolutions as enacted by kitties.
Finally, don’t be too hard on yourself when it comes to resolutions, my little procrastinators. Take XKCD’s advice to heart. “If at first you do’t succeed, that’s one data point.”
