In The Battle Between Nicholas Hoult And Eddie Redmayne, Everybody Wins
Hi, I’m TK. This is Pajiba Love, where I put up links that amuse you so that you’ll think that I like you. Hint: I don’t. I really, truly don’t. But I’ve got little better to do at the moment, so let’s HAVE SOME GODDAMN FUN SHALL WE?
Since we’re on the subject of not liking you, there’s always a strange dichotomy between your “real world” friends and your “online” friends, when in fact most of your online friends are really just… friends. This rather excellent article articulates this phenomenon much better than me. (Persephone Magazine)
I think we can all agree that these dresses are both incredibly nerdy, and incredibly hot. (Unreality)
Do you guys listen to the Pop Culture Happy Hour podcast? It’s been around for a while but it’s relatively new to me, and it’s bloody brilliant. One of the podcast members, Stephen Thompson, does a mailbag where he answers a critical musical question: Is the mixtape still relevant? (NPR)
This is literally one of the most beautiful photographs I’ve ever seen. (The High Definite)
Disney released a short film called “Paperman” yesterday, for free on YouTube. It’s already got over three million hits, probably because it’s goddamn fantastic. Take a look. (The Fox Is Black)
Sadly, yesterday marked the last day for the usually bizarre, often horrifying, and always hilarious Regretsy. Take a look at their Three Most Incendiary Topics post. It’s hella fun. (Regretsy)
While I find the general concept of coming out to be kind of sad and symbolic of how far we have to go as a society, this “coming out cake” is pretty awesome. Caution: Link may result in tearjerking. (Blame It On The Voices)
I can’t really speak to this critical question as I’ve actually never seen Eddie Redmayne perform in anything. Nicholas Hoult, however, is pretty great in Warm Bodies. Regardless, choose your cute skinny British lad. (Celebitchy)
We’re not done with beautiful pictures. This is real life, folks, not Oz. These are photos of tulip fields in the Netherlands and they’re absolutely breathtaking. (This Is Colossal)
I’m one of the rare people who actually kind of loves Superman. I think he’s a terrific hero, when done just right. Thing is, he’s usually done wrong. Very wrong. Here are 12 reasons why. (io9)
Lena Dunham is creating another HBO show, this time based on fashion icon Betty Halbreich. That makes her two for two on shows that are probably good that I just don’t give a crap about. (Warming Glow)
Remember last year, when the adorable stark children (Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams and Isaac Hempstead-Wright) sort-of-sang the intro to “Game Of Thrones”? And we all somehow found a way to love them more? Here is their beatbox/rap rendition. It is awkward and silly and strange and utterly delightful.
BONUS “Game of Thrones” goodness. Warning: It’s goddamn cold o’er beyond the Wall.
Finally, the lovely Emma Fitzpatrick does a fantastic Anne Hathaway “For Your Consideration” send-up. The HathLash continues!
TK didn’t mean those things in the opening paragraph, except the part about not liking you. Especially you.
