My power went out this morning. On a sky blue sunny day in California. I’m taking that as the first sign of 2012’s promised End Of Days. As such, let’s all read up on How To Survive The Apocalypse with the help of television’s most beloved characters. (Warming Glow)
Well, fine, most beloved by me, okay? Also, ladies, brush up on your post-apocalyptic grooming tips by studying these Hottest Girls In Apocalyptic Movies. Don’t look skeptical! It’s actually a pretty kickass collection. (Complex)
Speaking of dystopian females, Kristen Bell wins all the points with me by confessing that she dressed as Katniss Everdeen from “The Hunger Games” for her 30th birthday. Read all the way through as she adorably pitches for a role in the sequel. (Moviefone)
This is a great little trivia list from io9. Hit movies that everyone thinks were flops. I have to admit, with the exception of The Last Airbender (which I already knew inexplicably made money abroad) I thought all these films had tanked. (io9)
Speaking of tanks, Gwyneth would like you to give yours a thorough and expensive flushing. And, finally, the GOOP branding name broke me. I guffawed. (Celebitchy)
But, trust me, you will need all the cleanses after trying these Star Wars themed burgers. They’re being linked all over the place and I normally avoid something you’ve probably already seen, but DEAR GOD THE BUN IS BLACK*. (The Daily What)
Speaking of Star Wars nostalgia. Sometimes I get tired of all this sh*t being marketed with the express purpose of tapping into my youthful pursuits. Wookiee Hoodie indeed, Hot Topic. But this? This is actual, unmanufactured nostalgia. Called “Growing Up Star Wars,” it’s a collection of images of people, well, growing up with Star Wars. And it’s adorable. (Unreality)
In related news, John Carter sure looks like *ss. Paint him any color you want, I KNOW A JAR JAR WHEN I SEE ONE. (Comic Book Movie)
Listen, it may not be the worst movie ever, but I am going to say that John’s fancy
necklace shirt isn’t going to make its way into the Ultimate Fanboy Costume anytime soon. What this costume is lacking, however, is either a fez, a bow tie, or a brown trench. (Fashionably Geek)
I have to agree with Boing Boing. This is, in fact, the best NYT correction I’ve ever read. (Boing Boing)
As someone who has watched all of “Battlestar Galactica” (well, most…there was one REALLY boring half season), I enjoyed this 8-bit reenactment of the entire series. Spoilers. Like, obviously. All the Spoilons.
Finally, of all the non-Obama options this election season. This seems the most viable. Eh?
