In Which Tom Hardy Flexes Muscles You've Never Even Heard Of
Though it wasn’t something I ever watched, I know many of you were/are fans of the salacious fightfest “Spartacus: Blood and Sand.” The lead actor, Andy Whitfield, lost his battle with cancer over the weekend. RIP. (News)
Speaking of fightfests, did you see Warrior over the weekend, moppets? It’s really good and not just because of all the gratuitous Man Flesh. The folks over at Moviefone have a list of actors who have made impressive fitness transformations for film. Christian Bale is obviously the freakish king, but good g*ddamn, are those rib muscles on Hardy? (Moviefone)
But as you well know, an extreme fitness makeover is not required for an actor to disappear into a role. I wrote a while back about my favorite cinematic chameleon, Andy Serkis, only to be met with cries of “WHAT ABOUT PETER SELLERS?” Well, fine, here, the many faces of Peter Sellers. (I Love Charts)
Do you know WHY you don’t look like Tom Hardy (or even Peter Sellers), America? This, this is why. Taco Bell introduces their new Nacho Cheese Dorito Taco Shell. (Slashfood)
Is this what our future holds? Dorito tacos? The movies taught me to expect something much swankier. Here’s a nifty timeline of future inventions according to films. Also? I just found out this very instant that Highlander II is about aliens. I am now completely comfortable in my decision to never watch Highlander II. (visual.ly)
Speaking of Highlander, head over to io9 and vote for the greatest use of pop music in Sci-Fi/Fantasy. I know I should vote for “All Along The Watchtower” or something, but there can be only one, and it’s gotta be Queen. (io9)
This Pajiba Love feels very martial artistic. Check out this fantastic mock “Full House” video game. Go Kimmy Gibbler, go. (Uproxx)
If that had existed in my youth, I would have spent ALL my quarters on it. Speaking of coins, we’ve got two currency related links. First of all, a link I almost posted last week of an artistic practice called Skull Nickels. I want one. Also, apparently in the UK, it’s considered good luck to hammer coinage into a tree. Check out these phenomenal images. (This Is Colossal)
Dear Numismatists who read Pajiba Love. That was for you. Don’t say I never gave you anything. For those of you who love bunnies with their hoppy legs and twitchy little noses, here’s a big one. Huge. Disturbing, no? (David Thompson)
Over the weekend, amidst all the 9/11 reflections and tributes, some asshats hacked NBC’s Twitter account and posted false messages about a terror attack. That? That is disgusting. Apparently NBC social media director Ryan Osborn clicked on an attachment in an unknown email which made the Twitter account vulnerable. Um, even I know not to do that. I think NBC social media director Ryan Osborn should start looking for a new job. (Mashable)
The following video clip is approximately three minutes too long, but you ought to watch at least a bit of it. Ladies, do your breasts make a noise when you hoist them together? Mine don’t. Should I be concerned?
Finally, my darjeelings, because it was a rough weekend for many and because I love you, here is laughter, pure and simple. Enjoy.
Joanna Robinson would gladly volunteer to hoist Tom Hardy’s breasts together to see if they make a comical noise. You know, for science.
