If I Just Start Throwing Money At My Monitor Will They Make This Movie?
Does it even matter what this poster is for? You’re already balling up your singles and chucking them at the screen, aren’t you? Well it’s a fan poster for a movie based on some video game I’ve never played nor even heard of. It’s one of several in this post (Natalie Portman in Portal?? Okay!) and I’m on board for most of them. (First Showing)
What’s the rule to getting out of labyrinths? Keep one hand on the left wall? Make the Goblin King your love puppy? Actually I think I’m in no rush to leave this particular labyrinth made from 250,000 books. (Colossal)
This link is very “inside baseball” so feel free to move along. But as a movie blogger I am fascinated by all the info oozing out about Deadline founder Nikki Finke. She’s sort of been a canker on the *ss of the Internet for a long time but was too powerful for anyone to really say so. But the tide has been turning and this in-depth description of some of her more outrageous antics must be the writing on the wall…mustn’t it? (Vulture)
Speaking of wall writing, many thanks to the lovely Alison for sending me this muy highbrow link about some graffiti found on the walls of Pompei. An example? “Weep, you girls. My penis has given you up. Now it penetrates men’s behinds. Goodbye, wondrous femininity!” (The Nation)
(That’s just the tip of gayberg in today’s Pajiba Love. Brace yourselves.)
Effervescent joyous news palate cleanser. One of my favorite filmmakers, Cameron Crowe, has recruited Emma Stone as he lead in his new project. That’s just too much sunshine for one film. (THR)
Don’t you wish they could have done this cute Pixar alphabet without a single Cars mention? Well at least my favorite (the criminally underappreciated A Bug’s Life) gets some play. (Laughing Squid)
Did you know that there’s a Mars landing this week? What is this, some sort of Olympics counter programming? Savvy, NASA. Very savvy. (The Mary Sue)
“Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan has often joked about the number of bald dudes on his show. But here’s a rundown of how hair loss relates to badassery/evildoing on that show. I defy you to keep a straight face when you get to Hector. (Uproxx)
Despite the fact that he’s getting TV offers left and right, Dan Harmon remains very cranky about “Community.” Publicly, volubly so. Which means he’s learned, ah, nothing. (Warming Glow)
You know how you people love ragging on The Daily Mail and their sh*tty reporting? Well one of our brilliant commenters, denesteak gets to do that for a living. Read her fantastic “b*tch please” response to this sensationalist piece about slave labor and Adidas. Well done, chica! (Global Post)
If you’ve never seen Airborne (one of my guiltiest pleasures), do yourself a favor, grab a bottle of your favorite whatever and drink every time you see a ROLLERBLADE product placement. A young Seth Green and Jack Black at their finest, brah. (Unreality)
(Okay, here’s where this becomes Pajiba Gay Love. Get out now if you’re not into that sort of thang.)
Author and screenwriter Gore Vidal passed away yesterday. He was an amazing writer and my favorite Vidal moment is the segment he shot for the brilliant documentary The Celluloid Closet wherein he talks about the gay subtext of Ben-Hur. Watch that doc, if you haven’t. Vidal was an incredible artist and a fantastic human being. He will be missed. (MovieLine)
Lana Wachowski (of The Matrix fame) made her first appearance post sex change operation and, in my opinion, her hair looks rad. (Geeks Out)
Finally, Patty O’Green sent me this AMAZING Wilson Phillips cover about Chick-Fil-A. Normally I’m not into this sort of thing (this sort of thing being cheesy covers), but this one got me.
Joanna Robinson already apologized for that Olympics spoiler yesterday but, in case you missed it, SORRY.
