Happy Halloween! a.k.a. I’m Dressed As Arthur Dent So I Can Legally Wear PJs To Work Day. If you forgot to dress up, here’s a last minute emergency costume you can print out right there at work. You can thank Patty O’Green for this excuse to indulge in pretty dark haired women (HOLEEE H*LL) and breakfast food. (Ron Swanson)
Speaking of costumes, I think I’m legally obliged to think my nephew is the cutest Halloween kid out there (and he is), but this Princess Vader runs a close second. (Laughing Squid)
Speaking of cute overload, a few of you lovely link lookers sent me this tumblr which asks the age old question: who’s cuter, Ryan Gosling or a Puppy? (Ryan Gosling Vs. Puppy)
One of my esteemed overlords, Seth, sent me this link with the accompanying effusions: “There are so many good things is this fascinating - fucking fascinating - article about octopuses that I don’t even know where to begin. Suffice it to say, we chose Pajiba’s deity well, as the Pacific red octopus (which “likes to den in stubby, brown, glass beer bottles”) can attest.” (Orion Magazine)
I spent one Halloween night, many years ago, as an actor in a Haunted House where I was smothered in split pea soup and jostled on a bed all night. It was as ferociously unsexy as it sounds. Here is a nifty crafting project to remind me of that night. (I Have Seen The Whole Of The Internet)
Speaking of unsexy ladies, this woman has decided to give birth in public and call it performance art. In the (highly paraphrased and I injected a cuss) words of JenVegas, “F*ck and No.” (Moxie Bird)
Ever wondered what a bunch of Bill Murray characters would look like if they got together to go bowling? Sure you have! (Doodles From My Noodle)
Cameron Crowe has released a “Top Ten (Or So) Music Moments In Film.” Everyone who’s anyone knows that the Tiny Dancer scene in Almost Famous should top that list, but Crowe is too classy to mention his own (completely and irrefutably perfect) film. (The Uncool)
Speaking of irrefutably perfect films, the release of Jurassic Park on Blu-ray has many clever folks waxing poetic on the film and why it means so much to us after all these years. The io9 piece is good, but the Grantland piece is phenomenal. Hold onto your butts, indeed.
And hold onto your butts for the very misleading use of the word “probe” in this story about “South Park“‘s Trey Parker and Matt Stone vs. The Scientologists. (NY Daily News)
Can you believe Winona Ryder’s 40??! The fellers over at The Film Experience have a lovely complete history of our favorite
Heather Veronica. Johnny Depp—>Shoplifting—>Being Fake Movie Married To Kevin James. TALE AS OLD AS TIME. (The Film Experience)
Two high schoolers were crowned America’s first lesbian Homecoming Couple. Well done, California, now hows about that gay marriage thing? (Yahoo)
Speaking of music, several of you sent me these amazing musical clips courtesy of the “Doctor Who” cast. The first I won’t embed because it’s long and very musical theater-y and my favorite part is the silly Welsh accents Catherine Tate and David Tennant do. HOWEVER, if you’re not dissuaded, you can see their loving tribute to the four seasons of Davies era “Who” here. (The Ballad of Russell and Julie) However, the real crowd pleaser is this video of the entire cast and crew lip-synching to the Proclaimers. If you’re getting bored, then you haven’t gotten to the Ood yet.
And, what’s Halloween without buckets of claymation blood? Here’s one of my favorite movies, Evil Dead done in 60 seconds. . .with clay.
