Do you ever sit and stew over what fresh hell the future of technology and science has in store for us? I do. And I have to agree with this list that several of these films could depict a real future for us. Seriously, Gattaca is like a genetically modified hair’s breadth away. (Unreality)
Ah, but at least we know Ray Bradbury’s Farenheit 451 won’t be happening, not with everyone addicted to those bloody awful Kindle thingies. KINDLE. IT’S IN THE NAME. BURN IT. (The Mary Sue)
I’m not overly fond of the custard myself, but you know I can’t resist a pun. So I present to you, the Wu Tang Flan. (Film Drunk)
Let’s present a congratulatory flan to our lord and master, Dustin Rowles, who has a new gig as contributing editor at Warming Glow. Don’t worry, he’s still cracking the whip over here. Your Alison Brie cheesecake shots aren’t going anywhere. (Warming Glow)
For ladies who are made of firmer stuff than Brie, I direct your attention to this fascinating roundtable with several Oscar hopeful actresses including Carey Mulligan, Viola Davis and Glenn Glose. No offense to Charlize Theron but what in hail is she doing there? Are people thinking she’s going to be nominated for Young Adult? Really? (TFE)
Well, at least Charlize has some sway unlike the folks comprising this “25 Least Influential People Alive” list. It’s rather tongue in cheek, but you know I don’t mind the inclusion of January Jones. Stick around for the punchline of #25. (GQ)
And while I was saddened to see Harrison Ford on that list, I really have had trouble looking him in his twinkly eye since that Crystal Skull abomination. Jeremy Renner, on the other hand, has twinkles to spare. The delightfully bitchy Tom and Lorenzo are unimpressed with his kewpie doll-faced swagger, but I’m a Renner fan. (Tom and Lorenzo)
What *if* Dr. Seuss wrote The Ghostbusters? It would look like this and it would be adorable. (SuperPunch)
But not quite as adorable as this Daria cosplay. Click through for more photos including Trent, my second cartoon crush. (So Despair)
Someone has made some absolutely disgusting cupcakes out of Doritos and Mountain Dew. You know, for the stoners.
WE THEY HAVE STANDARDS. (Geekosystem)
Louis CK, one of my favs, will be returning to “Parks and Recreation.” Mrs. Julien say one word about Ben and Leslie’s lack of chemistry and I will smite you. (AVClub)
Did you know the elderly male dancers in Enchanted are the chimney sweeps from Mary Poppins? Click here to see them in action. Thanks, Patty! (I Ain’t Bovvered)
Elvis Costello would like you to illegally download his music. Or listen to Louis Armstrong. Either way, cool blog post. (Elvis Costello)
Buzzfeed has a list of 7 Popular Songs That Are Too Rapey. I don’t agree with all of them, but I certainly agree with #7. Don’t let the holiday association fool you! Date rape song! (Buzzfeed)
Speaking of holiday tunes, here’s ScarJo covering “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” with the disembodied dead voice of Dean Martin. Not creepy. Not at all. Not even a little bit. Nope.
