Brace Yourself, You're About To Like Tyler Perry
Hello my lovely ones! It’s cyber Monday, the day you can get all your Holiday shopping done just by sitting there on your fine, well-toned *ss. Me? I’m a simple girl with simple needs. I only ask that one of you send me this extraordinarily humble land jet from Mercedes Benz. It’s a modest vehicle for my modest needs. (Neatorama)
Had a strange interaction with a customer this weekend about racism in “Tintin.” I think, if I had been able to show her this image of Tintin and him Tauntaun she would have shut right up. (Comics Beat)
Speaking of sweet blonde boys, the adorable Ryan Gosling was caught cavorting in Paris with Eva Mendes. I have no opinion on them or their cavort and included this link mainly for the winter coat porn. (Celebitchy)
Because, tis the season folks, for winter coats and tweed jackets, for bow ties and above all fezzes. Check out this fabulous Doctor Who-themed tree. (Geek Girls Book Club)
Oh but before we plunge headlong into the Holidays, one parting Thanksgiving link. Apparently the lemurs at the SF zoo gorged themselves on a fancy feast this past week. Do you think lemurs have family issues? Druncles? (Laughing Squid)
Speaking of fancy feast, this Necronomicon cake is too pretty to eat. Klaatu barada necktie. (Geeks Are Sexy)
And while we’re on the subject of tasty treats, the Cake Baby herself, Kristen Wiig, has been voted GQ bro of the year. Gender be damned. Wiig’s bro Jon Haam wrote the article that accompanies this deliciously lurid photo. (GQ)
I mean, it’s cool that Wiig and Mila Kunis have been included in the Men Of The Year spread, but I’m wagering none of the MOTYs with penises had to shimmy into lingerie. Speaking of, check out this awesome sketch of what it would look like if the Male Avengers posed like the Female one. (Bleeding Cool)
Speaking of comics, I’d like to know if you can identify all 50 of these “good guys” from film. I’m stumped by #8. Grail knight? (The High Definite)
And though he’s better at playing bad (or at least morally ambiguous) guys, the phenomenal Ben Foster alleges he is dying for a part in a musical comedy. He also rhapsodizes about Kirsten Dunst and her acting ability. Read the rest of the phenomenal interview or fear the wrath of Charlie Prince. (TFE)
Speaking of scary princes (SEE WHAT I DID THERE), I don’t know what this Nightmare Santa’s Stomach Prince is for, but I know that I like it. Check out the story behind this twisted Christmas card. (Brad McGinty)
Apparently deep REM sleep takes the edge off of our traumatic memories. So feel free to take a nap after closely examining that card. (UCB)
And though her testimony seems rather tame in comparison to Hugh Grant’s, J.K. Rowling’s interactions with the paparazzi fall firmly in the traumatic category. I even have sympathy for Sienna Miller. I dislike that feeling. (Washington Post)
Speaking of celebrities I didn’t suspect to sympathize with, Tyler Perry wrote a supportive letter to the victim of Jerry Sandusky’s molestations. I’m not saying it’s the best letter I’ve ever written, but, honestly, that doesn’t matter. It’s heartfelt and I dig it. (The Daily Beast)
Um, am I the only one who didn’t know Alan Moore looked like this? Like death that hasn’t even gotten to “warmed over” yet? Death defrosting? (Guardian)
Check out this gorgeous collection of one second video clips from the Beauty of a Second short film competition.
But even better is this video Resa brought to my attention. If you haven’t seen it, please don’t spoil the “surprise” by reading about the video first, but check out this article when you’ve finished.
