Why, hello to JoJo’s sweet cybermen and weeping angels. Ms. Robinson’s computer took an afternoon bunk sabbatical soon after uploading Karen Gillan’s legs onto Pajiba, so I’m going to fill in best I can. She’s already added the links here, so I’ll attempt to provide the whimsical descriptions:

It’s hard to work up much interest in a pillow fight between two dudes (or even a crowd full of people in Harvard Square), but male-on-male pillow fights should be done in only one way: With pillow maces. (Who Killed Bambi?)

I have no fucking idea what the Hurr Durr is (is this some Green Lantern Kilowog alien language?) but this nifty website will translate other web pages into the Hurr-Durr speak for you. Looks like mentally disabled pirate blogging. (HurrDurr It)

Here are the answers to 11 burning questions about the meaning behind certain song lyrics. I have no idea which that Joanna would highlight, but my favorite revelation is that the Jester, the king and queen, the girl who sang the blues, and Satan referred to in Don McClean’s “American Pie” were Bob Dylan, the Kennedys, Janis Joplin and Mick Jagger. Also, Alanis was totally singing about Uncle Joey. (Eleven Points)

Details explores the growing number of couples who decide not to have children. As someone who is friends with a lot of these couples, I must say: Stop it. Bear some fucking children already. You have a responsibility. You’re bright people who would raise intelligent beings. It’s not you that we want to stop breeding. It’s the others. Show some respect for humankind. Keep this Fun Fact in mind when making your child-bearing decisions: There’s a child born to a Tea Party member every six seconds in America. (Details)

Which one of these adorable princesses is not like the other? Hint: It’s the one that’s going to grow up and kick all those other girls’ asses. (DC Women Kicking Ass)

I’m beginning to sense a theme now to Joanna’s links, but I can’t quite articulate it. This article is about the dearth of women of color in the Tech World. Again, ladies of color: Someone needs to offset the Zuckerbergs who dominate the the gadgets and thingamabobs and doohickeys. (TechCrunch)

Joanna has been hitting up The Mary Sue a lot lately, and for good reason: There aren’t enough sites out there dedicated to the Geek Girl. This post has something to do with Buffy … wait, that’s all I have to say, right? Buffy! (The Mary Sue)

This headline is actually Joanna’s, but it’s unfinished. I leave it to y’all to fill in the blank: “Local Wisconsin Democrats submitted 100% of the signatures needed to demand a recall election of Republican State Sen. Dan Kapanke. The news is sending shockwaves through the state — and revitalizing those who are working tirelessly on gathering the signatures needed to recall the remaining … ” (Recall The Republicans)

There’s an ad out on Craigslists right now soliciting people to post right-wing comments on liberal websites. I’m not making this up. It’s like that story from a few weeks ago I read about guys being hired to call in to sports-radio talk shows around the nation. Did you know that we also hire people to post comments correcting our grammar on the site? We just like the abuse. (Craiglist)

Joanna’s favorite Bill Haverchuck scene AND a reference to “Spaced” AND one of her favorite South Park episodes in this list of sitcoms that pay tribute to other sitcoms, inspired by that recent episode of “Community” that paid tribute to “Cougar Town.” (SplitSider)

Fans of “Archer” (Hey! That’s me now) who didn’t get a chance to read all of Pam’s back tattoo on last week’s episode, here it is: (Warming Glow)

A musical about Rasputin called Beardo. Yes, please. Or something wittier indicating general pleasure. (Laughing Squid)

At Wondercon this weekend, Joe Wright called bullshit on Zack Snyder’s kick-ass feminist message, stating that it was “marketing bullshit.” On the one hand, good for Joe Wright. On the other, I think Vince over at FilmDrunk sarcastically summed up the sentiment appropriately: “Joe Wright heroically calls Zack Snyder a sexist to promote his own girls-kicking-ass movie.” MovieLine)

I never made it past the 9-second mark when attempting to listen to Rebecca Black’s YouTube sensation, “Friday.” But when Stephen Colbert sings it — along with the Roots, Jimmy Fallon, and even Taylor Hicks — the song is instantly turned into one of the most energetic, rousing, joyous things I have ever fucking seen. It kills. Even if you have vowed to never listen to Rebecca Black’s version, you have to give this one a go.
