Alright my faithful little Lovers, I appreciate you coming back day after day to listen to me jaw on about “Doctor Hoo” and typography. But I realize it’s not all about me and my loves. So for the Lady Gaga haterz among you, here’s some footage of her making a schadenfreudian slip off her piano during a concert. Enjoy it, you monsters. (Evil Beet)
Was it everything you always dreamed of? Good, I’m glad. Speaking of revenge fantasies, Hugh Grant turned the tables on a paparazzo by bugging a conversation with him and then writing about it. It’s okay that I love Hugh, right? That prostitute thing was a really long time ago. (New Statesmen)
Speaking of the demise of print media, a former HuffPo writer is bringing a class action suit against the site for not paying their contributors. It would appear his suit is completely without legal merit, alas. But C+ for effort, my friend. (Slate)
Also without merit, apparently, are the filmic depictions of bar fights. There go my dreams of breaking a bottle on the side of a table or cracking someone over the head with a pool cue. (Smoking Jacket)
Don’t worry, my little book worms, other dreams live on. Yesterday I told you how you could smell like a Neil Gaiman character, today I’m here to tell you how you can win a speaking role in the fantastic full-cast recording of “American Gods.” You do it by clicking this link. (Book Perk)
Is that a really nerdy dream, my dears? Well, I’m in good company. Here Donald Glover (aka Troy from “Community” aka the man who would be Spider-Man) lists his 10 favorite nerd things. Have you heard his musical about #1? (Topless Robot)
In super heroic news, apparently Adrianne Palicki will be wearing three different outfits in the new “Wonder Woman” show. Yes, including a shorts version. In crap heroic news, the new Batman Stage Show is Schumucking with all the gritty good work Nolan has done with the franchise. (Hollywood Reporter)
Speaking of heroes, I suppose we should give a reluctant round of applause to the U.S. government for not completely shutting down. Well done, you asshats. Have you tried your hand at fixing the budget yet? These edifying charts can help you do so. (GOOD)
Ahhhhh, I can’t pass up a good chart segue. Jason from I Love Charts presents his top ten favorite musical charts. If you think a comparison of Rebecca Black’s “Friday” and The Beatles “A Day In The Life” isn’t on here, then you don’t understand the internet. (Urlesque)
Given that I am a die hard Beatles fan, your chances of nailing me on the first date are 50/50. I like those odds! If I were a Coldplay fan, you’d be S.O.L., and if I were a Nirvana fan, you’d be in like Flynn. I suspect that Nirvana fact has something to do with self-esteem. Don’t look at me like that, it’s science! Oh, nevermind. (Tastebuds)
Ah, but The Beatles are long gone. In terms of Contemporary Music I Like, I enjoy the hail out of Feist. I don’t know what that says about my sexual predilections, but I do know that I really dig this new track (I believe it’s new, feel free to correct me, music elite). It’s a little rough, but that’s how I like it. Also, stick around to see Beck take the high harmony. It’s a joy.
Finally, it’s been awhile, my rapturous raptors, since I talked about my love of dinosaurs. Lest you forget, here’s an incredible video of a T-Rex puppet scaring the bejaysus out of some Aussie kids. Despite the visible puppeteer legs, that T-Rex is awfully convincing.
