Happy almost Halloween! Someday, a day not far from now, you won’t have to endure my pumpkin links anymore. Today is not that day, son. Here are Ray Villafane’s amazing drooling zombie pumpkins. (Laughing Squid)
The Criterion Collection is running a costume contest. As you might imagine, the prizes are classy as f*ck. (Criterion Collection)
I wouldn’t be surprised if one of these Wes Anderson outfits won the Criterion contest. Me? I’ve always been partial to the Baumer. (Unreality)
A teacher who admitted to a relationship with her 17 year old student has just been given her own reality show. Conservative party, remind me. Statutory rape is still legitimate rape, right? (Celebitchy)
Oh should we not be looking to the conservative party for information on rape? My bad. Well how about these 50 cheery facts about rape to brighten up your Friday? (HuffPo)
If you read Dan’s absolutely brilliant review of Cloud Atlas, you may be thinking of skipping it. Personally, I think that would be a mistake. At the very least, check out this behind the scenes/making of/conversation between the directors and “Cloud Atlas” author David Mitchell. It is, at least, a fascinating look at the art of adaptation. (Time)
Who’s getting hammered and watching “Mockingbird Lane” tonight? Oh you MUST. It’s going to be such a gorgeous train wreck. Plus, Eddie Izzard! (CB)
If Reddit told certain impressionable members of the population to jump off a bridge, I’m afraid they would. In this instance, they created a fake Justin Bieber cancer rumor and convinced several of his fans to shave their head in solidarity. I mean, yes those kids are idiots, but damnit, Reddit, use your powers for good. (BioTV)
Dustin sent me this Damien Lewis eye candy link to share with y’all. Gingers in fur collars? Does that do it for you? (GQ)
Last night’s episode of “Parks and Recreation” turned my heart into mush. I’m blaming the following link involving kittens in costume on the aforementioned mushiness. (Neatorama)
Oh man, this Tumblr, with its acidic drool and feces galore? Goldmine. (Things I Learned As A Field Biologist)
I’m actually quite sad Cloud Atlas is opening today because surely that means we won’t get as much Tom Hanks adorability. Alas, alack, enjoy it (and Matt Damon) while you can.
But even better, in my opinion, was this amahhhhhzing song from two ladies who encourage you to keep your t*ts in this Halloween. Oh, Lady Louis CK, I’m a fan.
