Happy Friday, poppets. If you’re feeling too fatigued or too old to click on any or all of the links, I implore you to at least scroll down to the audio/visual portion of today’s Love and then helpfully explain to me what in the hail is going on there.
So you know how we just had the biggest mob bust in New York history? I’m sure that’s all very important, but look at the silly names they used!! Oh mobsters, your adorable nicknames make you so much less menacing. (The Village Voice)
Hey it’s new episodes of NOVA with my boyfriend Neil deGrasse Tyson! No, seriously, he’s my boyfriend, back off. (PBS)
Ok I thought the ginormous bus stop touch screens here in San Francisco were bad but that’s nothing compared to the advertising hijinkery of Caribou Coffee. You stay frosty, Minneapolis. Or, you know, toasty. (Food Beast)
So, let me get this straight, just in case the world wasn’t already convinced that we Americans were an invasive, egomaniacal country, we’re going to send a massive and hugely expensive spy blimp trolling the skies? Oh, America, f*ck no. (Switched)

Hey, Pajibans, which Tarantino film do you MOST want to see turned into a porno? Did you say the one where that guy gets his ear cut off? You’re in so much luck. (Bleeding Cool)
So while one subset of geek is busily trying to predict which parts of the comic books Christopher Nolan will stuff into The Dark Knight Rises, the rest of us are feverishly wondering which parts of Anne Hathaway Christopher Nolan will stuff into ze catsuit. (Fashionably Geek)
Wait, Republicans, you’re coming after my public radio? You’re gunning for Terry Gross and the Car Talk boys? Oh hell no. GIANT WALL GODTOPUS ATTACK!! Back off the National Endowment for the Arts while you’re at it. (HuffPo)
When I called you “trailer trash,” I obviously meant the wall-mounted espresso machine, leek-chopping kind. Don’t be so touchy. (Reddit)
This, right here, is a trailer for the esteemed David Carradine’s final film, El Dorado. I don’t want to spoil the gobsmackery for you, but I will mention that there’s a surprising Kill Bill presence, the term “The Jews Brothers” makes my eyes roll and I believe Steve Guttenberg is sporting Mickey Rooney’s glasses from Breakfast at Tiffany’s. It’s not a joke, it’s a real movie. Well, it’s a joke AND a real movie. Oh, and it’s going to be shown in 3-D.
