Apropos of nothing, the “NYT” has cobbled together a slideshow of high-calibre actors (and Kirsten Dunst) representing stock villains. While George Clooney’s Beaker faced “Tyrant” is great, Brad Pitt’s “Madman” (”Peter Lorre — with a dose of Kramer.”) is my favorite. Click here for the gorgeous photos and videos. (NYT)

Speaking of villains, the way Molly Mahan of Ranker sees it, Disney Princesses are the most insidious of them all. LEAVE BELLE ALONE! (Ranker)

Please take a moment to check out this Kickstarter campaign from the very Belle-ish Jewel Blackfeather. She writes beautifully and looks to promote reading and writing. Who can argue with that? (Jewel Blackfeather)

Does anyone else think Andy Samberg owes Michael Cera a royalty check for this pose? Here are the first images from his Sundance film, Celeste And Jesse Forever. What’s the over/under that Rick Springfield is on the soundtrack? A description of the film and more images of Rashida Jones’s pretty face here. (First Showing)

Speaking of pretty faces, here’s what Adele likes to put in hers. According to her Official Tour rider, wine, mini-chocolates and European beer. “North American beer is not acceptable.” Heart. (Uproxx)

And if you like to cook with all sorts of new-fangled products, here are some awesomely geeky cooking hacks. I think my favorite is making stew on your car engine during a long drive. Grosslicious! (Neatorama)

Speaking of geeky and cooking, here are 30 gifts for the sci-fi nerd foodie. (Basically, Jay). Bonus points if, when someone opens your gift of Han In Carbonite ice trays and exclaims, “I love it!” you answer, “I know.” Keeping the Han in Hannukah, yo! (Blastr)

Other great geek gift ideas are Bonnie Burton’s fabulous Star Wars Craft Book, this crazy awesome “Doctor Who” chess set,
and this great “Occupy Serenity Valley” T-shirt. (QMx)

I don’t know why everything is so geek-centric today. Last geek peek, I swear to you. Check out these sketches from an imagined “Battlestar Galactica” animated series. Oh animated Starbuck, you complete me. (Geek Tyrant)

In non-geek TV news, the magnificent “State Of Play” is being rebroadcast on BBC America starting tonight. If you only saw the American film, I beg/urge/cajole you to see the original British mini-series. (Seth makes an excellent case here.) Bill Nighy! A baby-faced James McAvoy! What’s not to love? (LA Times)

The decidedly non-babyfaced Alec Baldwin was kicked off a flight for playing “Word With Friends” on his phone after the door was shut. Then, for some reason, he shut down his Twitter account? I am devastated. His Twitter bromance with Steve Martin was a joy to behold. (THR)

Console yourself with these remarkably soothing ink-in-water images. Like an elegant psilocybin mushroom cloud. (Behance)

Then shock yourself back to inconsolable with this celebration of spiders in film. Damn you, Arachnophobia, you’re the reason I’ve never had a restful shower. Kill them with fire! (Den Of Geek)

Or, if you’re feeling in a more festive mood, kill them with these Grenade-shaped tree ornaments. Now I have a grenade, spiders, Ho-Ho-Ho. (Laughing Squid)

Finally, consider this your overdue “Community” post from yesterday. Troy and Abed spitting some lyrics about Christmas.

[ETA: If you would like to get your “Sons Of Anarchy” vent on, may I suggest the comments section of Dustin’s scathing review over on Warming Glow? Ugh, “Charmingtown”?? Blech.]
