First, in distressing TV news, Sarah Silverman has been offered a pilot on NBC. Really, NBC? You’re getting rid of “Community” to make room for a grating, baby voiced woman who uses her cutesy delivery to mask some epically trashy and racist comedy? Sorry, not a fan. (Warming Glow)
I can ignore Silverman (and Cummings AND Handler? Jaysus, NBC), because it looks like Ewan McGregor will be co-starring in the HBO adaptation of Jonathan Franzen’s “Corrections.” There is at least two seasons of dysfunctional material in that book, I couldn’t be happier. (FSR)
No! I lied! I am even happier to discover there is a website called “DudeCraft.” Check out this intricate portrait of a dog made from sprinkles. Dudes! Craftin’! (DudeCraft)
Some lady made this Little Shop Of Horrors cake, but it’s still pretty crafty. The kind of sticky licky sweet I crave. (Between The Pages
Speaking of beautiful dangerous things, check out these portraits of the world’s deadliest snakes. If you’re going to do photoshoots with those little devils, better bring the long lens. (This Is Colossal)
ACTUAL ASIAN ALERT! Rumor has it that Ken Watanabe is being considered for Akira. REJOICE. (/Film)
You could try to resist this incredibly geeky family portrait, but I’m here to tell ya, it’s futile. (Geeks Are Sexy)
I know, I know, I’m a rabid endorser of all things Fassbender. But, honestly, I’m tame compared to the ladies of Celebitchy who worship his patchy bearded cheeks. Here they have a lovely offering of Hot Guys for Thanksgiving, including a generous portion of Fassbender. Can I make an Idris Elba/dark meat joke? No? Thought not. (Celebitchy)
Here’s a list of 6 “Teflon” actors who seem immune to all the bad reviews thrown their way. Seriously, Sandler, retire to Hawaii, you have more of the stupid people money than you will ever need. (THR)
For the non-stupid people, there’s always Amy Poehler. Here she is accepting a Power Of Comedy Award. Watch her banter with Will Ferrell and refer to the statue as her vibrator. IT’S SMARTER THAN IT SOUNDS, OKAY? (NY Mag)
In the words of Patton Oswalt, fly your dragons at half mast today, legendary author Anne McAffrey has passed away. Friend and fellow author Neil Gaiman has some lovely words at the end of his blog. (Neil Gaiman)
I do not understand the Chris Pratt backlash. I think he is a delight. Here he and Aziz Ansari advocate Cancer testing. With swear words.
Listen up you cussing Basterds, this mash-up delights me mainly because anything related to The Fantastic Mr. Fox delights me. So shut the cuss up and watch it.
