At first I was baffled by this filmography infographic of “William James Murray.” Then I realized they meant “Bill Murray.” Internet, stop confusing me with your fancy long words! Anyway, the infographic is still fun. Can you identify them all? I kind of heart what they did for The Royal Tenenbaums. (Laughing Squid)
My least favorite photographer (Terry Richardson, blech) had three of my favorite ladies (The Sisters Fanning and Kristen Wiig) in his studio. And while no one got nude, or nearly nude, I still wanted to wrap a blanket around Elle Fanning. (Terry’s Diary)
One of my favorite absolutely bizarre films, The Adventure Of Buckaroo Banzai Across The 8th Dimension, gets a loving tribute over at Den of Geek. Truly, one of John Lithgow’s shining moments. (Den of Geek)
If you’re looking for something good to read, or some good gift ideas, the wonderful “Publisher’s Weekly” has put out several “Top Ten Books Of 2011.” They’re even broken down by genre this year. Wait. Whaaaaaaaaaaaat? No “A Dance With Dragons?” NERD SMASH. (PW)
Speaking of smashing nerds, one of my favorites, Brian K. Vaughan (“Lost” and “Y: The Last Man”) will be adapting Stephen King’s “Under The Dome” for Showtime. Yes, yes, that’s nice, but when will we be seeing an adaptation of “Y: The Last Man”? When?? (Deadline)
Yeah, “Y: The Last Man” is pretty much the only comic I’ve read. But that doesn’t stop me from being excited by the prospect of Joss Whedon writing/directing a Wonder Woman film. He’s still talking about it after all these years. Which gives me hope. (NY Mag)
For all you parental types who read Pajiba, how much attention do you give the MPAA ratings? A little? None? Drew at HitFix questions how useful the ratings are. (Hit Fix)
It’s election day, so here’s some political news. Okay, it’s sex scandal news. A fifth woman has stepped forward to accuse GOP candidate Herman Cain of sexual harassment. Seriously, dudes, if you’ve ever groped a lady, DON’T RUN FOR OFFICE. The truth will out. (ABL)
There’s a murky murky nebulous rumor that Kim Kardashian’s show may be cancelled. I’m only posting this in the hopes that if enough of us wish hard enough. Or clap our hands. Or something. This will happen. (Celebitchy)

How’s your day? It is going alright? My dad’s in the hospital, so I’ve had better. Here to pour liquid sunshine right into your heart and mine are the muppets. First a cute little Bollywood Muppetry.
And, finally, a look at the opening number from the new Muppet movie. It looks familiar to me. Like…”How I Met Your Mother” familiar. But it’s still insanely adorable. I can’t wait.
Joanna Robinson advises you to keep her away from your babies. Lest she dress them up as a little TARDIS.
