If It Ain't Broke, Um, Smash It To Bits With An Axe Anyway I Guess: Stephen King And "The Shining" Sequel
Did you know my little purple proses that it’s Banned Book Week? Oh it surely is! So get out your dog-eared copy of “Lady Chatterly’s Lover” or “Prisoner of Azkaban” and revel in the forbidden fruitiness of it all. Here is a list of banned titles you might have read as a child. (Buzzfeed)
I read all those books. My children will read all those books. In fact, if I could live in a house that was wall to wall bookcases, I would. Here’s a few samplings of eccentric bookshelves for inspiration. THE FIRST ONE IS MADE OF BOOKS. (The Blog On The Bookshelf)
If you’re more into comics than books, here is a nice little list of hi-res Calvin and Hobbes desktop images. Since Watterson is notoriously anti-merchandising, these images are somewhat illicit. Yes? No? (Unreality)
While not illicit, these images from Burton’s Dark Shadows adaptation are disturbing. I mean, they basically just recycled HBC’s hair and make-up from Alice, right? Michelle Pfeiffer, however, looks amazing. (Empire)
Amazing looking as always, Salma Hayek cuddles both Antonio Banderas and some real live kittens on the red carpet for Puss and Boots. (Celebitchy)
I don’t know if you’ll agree with me that Banderas belongs on this tumblr, but I’m sure many of you will join me in thanking the chaplain for sending it over. (Hot Old Men)
Speaking of hot men, Pajiba’s very own dreamboat, the always thoughtful Steven Lloyd Wilson, has started covering legitimate (non-ZOMG-SRL) news. Check out his pieces on Central Asia here. (Universal News Wires)
Another writerly dreamboat, Matt Zoller from Salon, has compiled a list of The Over-Acting Hall of Fame. Oh, Jennifer Jason Leigh, I cannot disagree. (Salon)
Speaking of larger than life actors (THAT IS NOT A FAT JOKE) Marlon Brando was apparently in talks to appear as the young Vito Corleone in Godfather II. Here is a letter from Coppola delicately begging Brando to do it. The last paragraph sort of killed me. (FilmDrunk
The lovely mswas has, over the last year, sent me several cute lorum ipsum sites. Here is a round-up of them all. Liquor Ipsum (I hardly knew her Ipsum) is my favorite. (Queness)
But why isn’t there a Durden Ispum? (Fight Club)
And speaking of the foul-mouthed Durden, here is a supercut of cinematic f*cks broken down by grammatical usage.
Finally, to conclude this banned book edition of Pajiba Love, can we ban Stephen King from writing this sequel to “The Shining”? Can we ban the inevitable film adaptation? PLEASE? I want to redrum everyone.
Joanna Robinson hopes it’s obvious that the first video was really ********* **** ****** ***** NSFW. Also? Hey, look, Almost Famous made into into the f*ck video! Great movie. Check it out sometime.
