I know violence and politics are not the usual purview of the P. Love column, but the Egyptian government has shut off internet access to its citizens. I’ve also read that cell phone service is on the chopping block. Is there a case where you think this is a reasonable course of action on behalf of the government? Can you imagine the American reaction should our government try to pull that? (Arabist)
Guess which offspring of Martin Sheen is embroiled in a scandal web spun of coke and porn? Did you say, “Not Emilio?” Here, you get a cookie. (Celebitchy)
Word is ABC is considering Minka “Duckface Lyla Garrity” Kelly for the new “Charlie’s Angels” television show.

The more I wench, the more I discover that the internet is a truly weird place. Who builds an entire website dedicated to C-3PO Suicides? What is that about? But then again, the internet has also produced this Yoda as drawn by Dr. Seuss and it’s as good as you’re imagining. Nay, better. (The Mighty Adam)
I really don’t understand how folks are impervious to the charms of Franco and Hathaway. Come onnnnnn, submit, allow yourself to be lured by the lethal levels of cute.
To counteract the cute, here’s some classic curmudgeon for you. Okay, it’s pretty cute too. An enterprising person has reimagined Pixar’s Up as a 1960’s Disney film. Spoiler alert, there’s a photo album scene and it got dusty here in casa Link Wench for a second.
