Happy Wednesday to my Brawny Men and Brainy Women. You know how I don’t really do comic books or sports? Cause I’m just a girl or something? Well Optimus Rhyme (he has a Y chromosome, you guys!), told me you would care about this. Like, apparently Captain America is playing for the Dallas Cowboys or something? I dunno, let’s go shopping. (Nerdist)
Hahah, just kidding! Gender stereotypes are adorable. Like this article from the AV Club that encourages grown women to not feel embarrassed about liking stupid sh*t like Justin Bieber because, OMG, the boys are allowed to have Storm Trooper Action figures. No. You love Justin Bieber? I don’t care about your gender, that’s not cute. You hear me, Graydon Carter? Not cute. (AV Club)
Speaking of uncute ladies, Science Fiction has an interesting (but totally bullsh*t) defense of Sansa Stark from “Game of Thrones.” I hesitated to post this, because of the spoiler fear that’s sweeping the nation, but the article itself has no spoilers beyond the first season of the show and I rather admire people when they champion an unpopular opinion. (Even when they’re really really wrong.) I will say this, based on Season One of “Game of Thrones” alone, Sansa has proved herself to be a completely obnoxious yet sympathetic character. Please no book spoilers in the comments, my dear ones, lest I sic Dire Wolf on you. (Science Fiction)
Compared to Casey Anthony, however, Sansa looks like a saint. I avoided much of this trial, but I did read Courtney’s fantastic piece yesterday and have to agree that Casey belongs on this All-Time Most Surprising Acquittals list. Personally, however, I’d put O.J. above her, but only because I was such a young and innocent Link Wench when that whole thing played out. (Ranker)
But if you’re bummed about the Casey Anthony verdict, don’t worry guys, Dexter’s on it.(Warming Glow)
Speaking of cuddly sociopaths (Dexter, not Anthony), here’s an adorable plushy version of Alex from A Clockwork Orange. Who’s the cutest Droog? You are! Yes you are!! (Dangerous Minds)
Speaking of top-notch musical genius (damnit, where’s my sarcasm font?), Lily Allen is finishing up her Bridget Jones musical. Oh yes, this is happening. After the success Billy Elliot it was sort of inevitable. (Gothamist)
And while we’re talking about high-end culture, /Film has a sneak peek into the Crazy 4 Cult art show. Actually, I don’t mean to be a snob about this stuff, I love it with all my latchkey heart. (/Film)
Here’s a culture clash comparison of Star Wars and “Harry Potter.” The similarities are a little eerie but they missed out on a Dobby/Yoda floppy ear photo. (Bitcast)
The lads at I Love Charts posted this great breakdown of Eddie Vedder’s sound. Study this and your Vedder impression might maybe one day be as good as mine. (Mine’s pretty good. No, really, it’s like Sandler good. I’ll do it for you some day.)
You know how pretty Hollywood actresses get grief for pandering to nerds? Well here is the prettiest Hollywood star of them all, Nathan Fillion, pandering with this completely disgusting PSA about Swamp *ss. I mean, it’s funny, but it’s gross.

But nothing made me laugh harder today than this dude’s video which he made to shame his friend for canceling their trip to Raging Waters. I feel you, dude, Raging Waters is the best.
Joanna Robinson once dressed as Alex from “A Clockwork Orange” for Halloween. When she walked into the costume shop and asked for white suspenders and a bowler, the proprietor declared, “DROOG!” That’s some Ollivander-type sh*t, that is.
