Jeremy Renner To Try His Hand (And Veiny Forearms) At Comedy
My favorite festive link today is that a new story by Neil Gaiman, “Click-Clack the Rattlebag,” is available on Audible as a free download. Not only is the story free (and read by Gaiman himself with his usual louche, butterscotchy brio), but Audible will donate $1 to a literacy project for each download. So do those kids and your ears a favor and check it out. Even if you’ve never read a word of Gaiman in the past. What do you have to lose?* (Audible)
The Awl reminded me it’s Daylights Savings this weekend. I know I should post this link on Friday, but there is no way I will remember to do so. (The Awl)
There are a lot of creepy sights to behold on the internet today, so why not enjoy something harmless and gooey. Like this sexy alien life form holding what is, most likely, his next meal. (Celebitchy)
For the more straightforward creep factor, here are 10 Abandoned Amusement parks. One, of course, is the amazing Spreepark that was used so beautifully in Hanna. (Neatorama)
You don’t have to be a “TMNT” fan to enjoy this amazing Krang-O-Lantern. Move over turducken and pumpple cake, we’ve got ourselves a pumelkin. (Laughing Squid)
Wondering what to do with your pumpkin once all the festivities are over? I mean, sure, you could let the pumelkin molder on your front porch. OR YOU COULD SHOOT IT OUT OF THE CANNON. Your choice. (Environmental Graffiti)
This was my favorite Internet reaction to the news that Disney acquired Lucasfilm yesterday.
The lovely tamatha sent me this darling comics tumblr which has a ton of Halloween-themed panels. (Liz Climo)
Pajiba Ten vet. Jeremy Renner will be hosting “SNL” this fall. Man I haven’t seen him in a genuine comedy since Senior Trip. Unless, are we counting Hansel and Gretel? Anne Hathaway will also be hosting. Shut up haters, she’s good at it. (Vulture)
Finally, if you’re feeling your Inner Martha Stewart demon stirring, you might want to make these elaborate caramel apple jello shots tonight.
*Hours and hours…maybe days and days. You’ll want to go back and read every word the man has ever written.
