I have no link for the above photo. Nothing really terribly important to say about it. I just want you all to know that earlier this week I confused Brad Pitt for David Spade. That’s End Of Days type stuff, people. Well, either that or I need glasses.
Check out these gorgeous red carpet photos from the Essence “Black Women In Hollywood” event. Some of my favorite African American performers were present including Anika Noni Rose, Viola Davis, Jurnee Smollett and, um, stop the record, Emma Stone? Oh god I can’t wait until The Help is over. (Tom & Lorenzo)
GOOD asks whether undergrads who choose higher-earning majors (e.g. Engineering) should pay more for their education. Yes, do that please. Then give me* a refund on my English Degree. (GOOD)
We’ve got two pop culture charts for you this afternoon. First, the incorrigible Bed Hopping Habits of the “Mad Men” cast. The creators included hook-ups they’d like to see. Roger Sterling and Trudie Campbell? Oh yes please. (The Curious Brain)
And some very detail-oriented fellow has attempted to chart a family tree of the “Lord Of The Rings” saga. Here’s a fun exercise, film fans, scroll all the way to the bottom (for familiar names), find Arwen, then scroll back up until you find her parents. (LOTR Project) Bleeding Cool analyzes the tree and what it reveals about race and gender in Tolkein’s work. *cough*Sausage Party*cough* (Bleeding Cool)
I know you didn’t ASK me for a photo of Nathan Fillion in superhero jimjams, but it’s Friday, so I thought I’d give it to you anyway. Oh, and you closet “Wings” fans? Tim Daly is there too. H/T BierceAmbrose (Seriously OMG)
British Television continues to prove it’s better than us with a series of televised plays featuring some folks you might have heard of…Emma Thompson…David Tennant…you know. These damn well better come to PBS or BBC America. (Deadline)
Speaking of Ten, this is possibly my favorite thing on the internet this week. Female “Doctor Who” cosplay. While you’ve surely seen a bird or two dressed as The Doctor before, you’ve probably not seen this many of them all in one place. Bonus? A fetching TARDIS and the sexy legs on female Capt. Jack. (io9)
I’ve also got a double dose of design for you. Let’s start with these images using people as pixels. (This Is Colossal) And, secondly, this rainbow art installation. What, you don’t like magical whimsy? F*ck you. (My Modern Met)
Sooooo, The Lorax, Dr. Seuss’s environmentally conscious invention, is shilling SUVs. Wow. (Mother Jones)
Isn’t that ironic? Don’t you think? This Ironic Giant does. (Fashionably Geek)
Okay, two blithering idiots who should not be allowed to procreate have used Twilight as the inspiration for their engagement photos. I would say they will be embarrassed by these ten years from now, but something tells me self-awareness isn’t their strong suit. Happy nuptials you mouth-breathing morons. (Every Last Detail)
But the happy news that Hunger Games is already outselling Twilight gives me hope. That’s right, future engaged couples, I demand Katnis-inspired photos complete with mud, murder and mayhem. Thank you. (Vulture)
Raise a glass of something, “Archer” has been renewed!!!! (Can you tell I don’t watch “Archer”? Wait…wait stop…put away the tar and feathers. NOOOOOOOO.) Even if you don’t watch the show, you’ll get a kick out of these gifs Dustin lovingly presented. (Warming Glow)
First, the mellifluous sound of Jon Hamm speaking Hungarian. Okay, it’s not so much mellifluous as it is halting and awkward. But, you know what? Still charming!
Finally, do you hate bagpipes? I don’t? I especially don’t hate listening to this dude rocking out a Queen anthem. Come for the caterwauling, stay for the kilted hip thrusts.
*Um, my parents.
