We here at Pajiba HQ have yet to see Sorkin’s new, highly anticipated HBO series “The Newsroom,” but advance reviews are…not great. Sorkin can console himself with the fact that he’s dating the cutest member of the “Sex And The City” cast. Between Steve Martin and Aaron Sorkin, I have to admire Kristin Davis’s taste in extraordinarily intelligent men. (Celebitchy)
Do you want to see a meth lab made entirely of Legos? No? What if I promise you that this link uses the phrase “Bricking Bad.” Right? Right. (Laughing Squid)
This rather maudlin chart tracks what you’re most likely to die of at what age. Sure it’s depressing, but at least you won’t die of surprise. So….there’s that. (The Curious Brain)
I know our site’s official mascot is the Godtopus, but I’m sorely tempted to nominate this fancy Narwhal to take the throne. (BioTV)
Happy Pride weekend everyone! I won’t be dishing out the links tomorrow, so I wanted to make sure I got in some super gay love today. Here’s an interesting map that shows where there are public pride celebrations and where there most assuredly aren’t. (GOOD)
I’m sure, by now, you’ve heard the horrific story of the Greece, NY bus monitor who has bullied by some sh*t-heel kids. If not, here’s an interesting and self-reflective post on the matter by Chez Pazienza. (The Daily Banter) The silver lining, of course, is that The People Of The Internet have raised over 150K and counting for this woman so she can go on vacation. F*ck it, keep on at this rate and maybe she can retire. (Gothamist)
As if I wasn’t disgusted enough with humanity today, here’s the worst headline I’ve read in awhile. I’m just posting the headline. No link. NO TRAFFIC FOR YOU! I’ll also just leave our Courtney’s reaction here, because she put it better than I ever could. “How dare that piece of meat ruin herself like that. Selfish.”
That dovetails nicely into this really fascinating piece in The Atlantic about why women “still can’t have it all.” Before you give a TL;DR reaction to the headline, please do yourself a favor and read the whole article. It’s pretty compelling stuff. (The Atlantic)
Ugh, that’s a lot of doom and gloom in The Love today. TONE SHIFT! The lovely Bill Murray was inducted into the Minor League Hall Of Fame. Best of all, he wore essentially the same blindingly plaid outfit he wore to Cannes. (Vulture)
Before you click this link, go ahead and take a guess at what the subject of this photo is. Hint: you may spit it all over your keyboard when you find out. (io9)
Would I break my “no reality television” rule to watch a show filmed on Mars? You bet your Barsoom I would. (WG)
What do you think of this list of the 10 best Pixar characters, darlings? I think a certain pint-sized fashionista was ranked far too low. (FSR)
Finally, because I’m feeling a little punchy, here’s a gallery of Batman fighting basically everyone. That’s right, Batman, you punch the sh*t out of that velociraptor. (Unreality)
And I heard a rumor that some of y’all like Joss Whedon. Then, baby, this mash-up is for you.
Joanna Robinson is all for letting Batman take a gentle swing at those middle schoolers.
