Justin Timberlake Will Get His SNL Five-peat While Josh Brolin And Diane Lane Admit Defeat.
Before we get to the links, a quick reminder to join us on Sunday night as Courtney Enlow live-blogs the Oscars, and seriously, no one does it better than Courtney.
Sad news to start today’s P-Love: Josh Brolin and Diane Lane have split after 8 years of marriage. That means any of you with crushes on either of them can probably score. So it’s good news now! (Celebitchy)
If the idea of crossing Lane or Brolin off of your freebies list isn’t making you happy, this Lego Ghostbusters set should do the trick. (Orionpax)
In honor of the 85th Academy Awards, I present the story of two sisters. They were competing for an Oscar on more than one occasion and their feud continues even now, with each woman in her late nineties. Which sisters? (Mental Floss)
Speaking of the Oscars, Seth MacFarlane intends to remind us all that he can sing by closing out the show with a musical number. This breaks the tradition of ending after Best Picture is awarded. Yay? (Evil Beet Gossip)
Justin Timberlake will be the host and musical guest, because he also wants to remind us that he sings, on “SNL” March 8th! This pleases me because this will be his fifth time hosting and, for me, he never disappoints. I hope we get a Digital Short, ohpleaseohpleaseohplease. I’ve been a
good decent pretty okay girl this year! (UPROXX)
It seems that Batwoman #17 was released on Wednesday and the end of the comic has something really big happen. Obviously there is a spoiler at the link, but I had to look because I am nosy as all hell and wanted to know what happened. I guessed correctly and I am as perplexed as the article’s author about DC not publicizing this event in the same way they have publicized…similar events. (The Mary Sue)
If, like me, you are not a total Star Wars aficionado who is well aware of the children that could appear in the sequels, I’ve found a lovely chart to help you out. Well, it will help you with the Skywalkers and Solos. Jar-Jar’s family tree was burned to the ground in a mysterious electrical fire. (Chart Geek)
While discussing “Ender’s Game” in Trade News, I learned that the book’s author is a total wanker. When people like Orson Scott Card or Roman Polanski create something wonderful while being awful people, how can you deal with it ethically? (ThinkProgress)
People seem to think that they can screech whatever brainless, horrifying, blatantly false combination of words that they can think to string together. Then they call “FIRST AMENDMENT!” like some magic incantation that protects them from criticism or things like “facts” or “common courtesy”. Aw, idiot-face, that isn’t how the First Amendment works. (Jezebel)
Let this be a lesson to all of us that fighting with your significant other over Facebook when they have a Furby and a PS3 controller in grabbing range is Bad Idea Pants. I bet that Furby cackled maniacally and got flames in its eyes when it tasted blood for the first time. (Huffington Post)
What super jerkassed and entirely disrespectful thing did you think Lindsey Lohan would do next? If you guessed “Cut the bottom off of a borrowed $1,750 dress” then you win! (Celebslam)
Photoshop is always fun, right? Here are some clearly Photoshopped pictures of people, some famous and some not. The face swap of John Mayer and Katy Perry will be haunting my dreams tonight! (The Berry)
Speaking of terrifying, I’m late to the Creepypasta party. I was browsing Reddit’s front page and clicked on comments where people tried to make a scary story in one sentence. I was then directed to this interesting and actually well-done story called “NoEnd House”. (Creepypasta)
I must admit, I am not looking forward to Monsters University. I’ve seen how Disney treats sequels and Pixar has been getting the stinkeye from me ever since Toy Story 3. However, I do enjoy this comparison of how the monsters looked different in Monsters Inc.. (imgur)
Sure, a 3D printing pen is awesome, but printing working human body parts (not swimsuit parts…yet)? That’s amazing! (Geekosystem)
Lego Michael Jackson still enjoys doing the crotch grab in this delightful short done by Annette Jung.
If you still need something to fill the time until the weekend, I suggest you scroll through this Tumblr. It’s fun to feel like you are getting smarter until one of the facts strikes you as dubious. (Psychofactz)
