Let me just preface this Pajiba Love by reminding all the Torontonian Pajibans that Edgar Wright, Bryan Lee O’Malley and Ellen Wong are going to be doing signing at HMV today at 12:30 for Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, which is super awesome and explains why I’m writing this at 6:30 in the morning so that I can squeeze in the writing and the gym and still be there early. Awesome!
Remember how the next installment of the James Bond franchise was canned indefinitely? Well not anymore, because they’re planning on getting the next Bond movie into theaters by November of 2012, despite being in the hole for $4 Billion. Which I guess means James Bond’s next gadgets are pretty much going to consist of rubber bands and paper clips. (Film Drunk)
It’s finally happened people: Keanu Reeves has become self-aware, and is now toying with the paparazzi. Goddammit Keanu, we liked you better when you were all mopey and depressed! Go back to eating things while being miserable! (Agent Bedhead)
In things I’ve never realized before: ESPN analyist Jon Gruden has lunch-lady legs. (UglyFours)
Oh boy! Just in time for Christmas, here’s the story of how Barack Obama stole Christmas, despite the fact that he’s not even from the North Pole! I don’t care what political party you belong to; when you come to the point where you’re making allegorical stories about how your opponent stole Christmas, you have failed yourself as a politician. (AngryBlackLadyChronicles)
Some video game decided the best way to promote itself would be by having a video of Hulk Hogan and his daughter playing it, which means of course it would devolve into Hulk watching his daughter’s ass shake and whipping out his dick in front of her. I think I saw this on the Discovery Channel once… It’s called “presenting”. (popbytes)
Oh Zach Galifianakis… You may be overexposed as hell right now, but that’s okay, because holy shit do you ever consistently bring the funny. Marry me (for a green card). (Warming Glow)
Because TK knows exactly how to get a link on Pajiba Love (i.e. send in one about nerd proposals and include “COCK BALLS FART” in the body of the email), here’s comic book artist Leigh Gallagher’s incredibly adorable proposal to his wife. Oh, and by the way: She said yes! (LeighGallagher)
Oh look, scientists may have found the cure for the common cold. Seriously? This is the one that stumps you? One of the most common illnesses in the world stumps you? Goddammit, get back to working on cures for cancer and AIDS before I kick you in the balls. (Gamma Squad)
Ooooooo, look! Ryan Seacrest and Jennifer Lopez are already feuding over their salary, despite the fact that the new season of American Idol hasn’t even started yet! If you’ll excuse me, I have to go dig American Idol’s grave now. Anyone wanna help? (Celebslam)
Here’s an interesting piece on why even someone who hates Glee wants to keep the show on the air. He makes a good point, but I’d just like to add that if Glee were to go off the air, what kind of show do you think Fox would replace it with? Another hour of Seth McFarlane cartoons? (Kamikaze Feminist)
Awww, it’s so nice to see Kate Gosselin took the time to have a little bonding time with her kids during Halloween. By which I mean her bodyguard drove them around in a car while she screamed at them to shut up so that she could get some beauty sleep. (Celebitchy)
Warren Spector, the creator of Epic Mickey (which I am totally looking forward to), gave an interview about how exciting and different his game is, despite the fact that everything he pretty much talks about was already done in Kingdom Hearts. Seriously, he even ripped off the “all the enemies don’t have heart!” bit. (Topless Robot)
HA! Someone took the time to create comic book covers of what Marvel Comics would have looked like if they had the ridiculous, non-sequitur story lines of early DC comics. Oh fat Spider-Man, we still love you… (Buzzfeed)
Because you people need some musical goodness to start off your day (or afternoon, depending on when you read this) here’s Neko Case’ Some People Got A Lotta Nerve.
