Oh, Freida Pinto, You Should Have Stuck With That Yellow Scarf
Unctious and obsequious greetings to you, my little vowels and consonants. These letter throw pillows are everything I never knew I always wanted. I could put words EVERYWHERE in my house. Leave elaborate messages on sofas and beds. The world is my scrabble board. (Etsy)
I could use the pillows to spell out the top ten American swear words. Strike that. I think I prefer the top ten British swear words. BOLLOCKS! (The Atlantic)
Speaking of my love for words, here is the largest indoor photo ever taken. What does that have to do with words? It’s of my dream librareeee! Only mine would have less gilding and more rolling ladders. A fleet of rolling ladders. (Techcrunch)
I’ve found it! The first book for my library! Rob Lowe’s new tell-all where he bags on such easy targets at Tom Cruise and Charlie Sheen! Oh, I know, I know, you just want to see this photo of him shirtless on the cover of Vanity Fair. Fine, fine, foyne. The microchip, it is not compromised. (Evil Beet)
Speaking of genetically blessed people and their skin (that sounded a bit Buffalo Bill, no?), Freida Pinto is showing some of hers on the cover of Glamour while wearing the most hideous Donna Martin ensemble I’ve seen outside of the 90210 zip code. (Celebitchy)
In brighter news, the blind person who dressed Miss Pinto might enjoy this braille Rubik’s cube. (Boing Boing)
I’m not certain if this Mario-themed bathroom is awesome or blind-making. The girl’s cute, and I’m down with the toadstool tissue dispenser, but that Mario soap dish freaks me out. (Unreality)
THE GOOD: Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon are collaborating to raise money for education. THE BAD: While Colbert is donating his own ca$h monies, Fallon is asking viewers to donate his half. THE UGLY: If they raise enough by the end of the week, Colbert will perform Rebecca Black’s “Friday” with The Roots. By “UGLY” I, of course, mean amazing. (Warming Glow)
Speaking of money, check out this photoshopped image of John Boener dressed as a NASCAR driver covered in his sponsors. Thanks to the cackling geniuses at Reddit. More of this, please! Do the democrats too! (GOOD)
We’ll start the video portion of today’s P.Love with a video I’ve seen on no fewer than five sites now. That kind of ubiquitousness (don’t you wish that word were ubiquity?) usually stops me from posting something here. But, well, it’s Pixar. I’m powerless to resist. Oh, except for you, Cars. I will never watch you.
Check out this nifty little amplifier someone made for their mobile phone. There is no electricity involved, just acoustics, scrap metal and a trumpet. It looks like something you’d find on the TARDIS…
Speaking of the TARDIS, holy guacamole, it’s the “Doctor Who” trailer. I’ll give you no spoilers, River, except to say, for a show that can make me terrified of cherubic children in gas masks and angel statues, I weep to think of what they’re going to do with that bolloxing clown.
Joanna Robinson would like you to make her a scrap metal/trumpet thingie. If you’re skilled in the art of metallurgy, please do send her one here: godtopu[email protected]
