My apologies, my little latkes, for the Christwire kerfuffle yesteday. That was me having a serious case of the dumbs. Are the dumbs contagious? If so, I caught them from this university student who accused her Jewish professor of anti-semitism. Best of all, after the
Führer furor died down, she’s still not admitting it’s entirely her fault. (BioTV)
Speaking of culpability, the man who created TSA criticizes it at great length without really accepting any responsibility for having burdened us with it in the first place. Shampoo in tiny bottles is expensive, yo! (TechDirt)
Yes, my barefoot contessas, air travel is a dehumanizing process these days. But check out these Russian mini-hotels for airport layovers (emphasis on the lay). Having slept on the floor of JFK and therefore, surely, having contracted ALL the cooties, I’m in favor of these little
fuck sleep boxes. (GOOD)
Also, by the by, the movie Airplane! doesn’t really do it for me. I’m baffled as to why it’s near the top of both the Time Out 100 Best Comedy Movies List and the personal list of comedic genius Edgar Wright. In case you were wondering, entry #100 on the Time Out list is not, in fact, an elaborate April Fool’s joke. (Time Out)
Alas, neither is this comparison of Don Draper and Fabio. Don’t look if you wish to keep Hamm atop that pedastal. (BlackBook)
Did you look? I told you not to look! QUICK! CLEAR YOUR MIND WITH THESE AMISH MUGSHOTS!
Whew, that was close. Speaking of Hamm and the “Mad Men” crew, I owe you all an apology. I was snarking at Christina Hendricks the other day over on facebook because her rack in that pink Vivienne Westwood dress was just…too…much. Miss Hendricks, obviously an avid reader of my facebook feed, responded by burqa-ing herself in this black turtleneck. I’m sorry! I take it back! Never hide your headlights under a bushel again, I beg of you! (Celebitchy)
For all his casual chauvinism, I feel even Don Draper would have spoken up during the pitch for these “hilarious” Topman t-shirts. Seriously, WHO APPROVED THESE? It was Chris Brown, wasn’t it. Is there no end to your villiany, man? (Village Voice)
In less stabby t-shirt news, if you buy the lovely “Dr. Horrible”-themed shirt over at Teefury today, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to “Club Mo” for the Los Angeles “Walk For Lupus Now.” Similarly, Emma Stone, Bill Hader and several other celebrities are pimping a Star Wars themed line of T-Shirts in support of “Stand Up To Cancer.” (EW.com)
The subheading on this WSJ article reads, “Congress contemplates draconian punishment for Internet lies.” Possibly not even big, huge fraudulent lies. But little teensy white lies. Like using a fake name on facebook. Oh, my little felonious hunks, the facebook addicted Pajibans are going to be in truuuu-ble. h/t Bierce Ambrose (WSJ)
Finally, Dustin continued with Unofficial Pajiba Loves Music Week by posting the 15 Best Singing Performances In Non Musical Films over on Uproxx. #15? That’s why I’ll always love Will Ferrell. (Uproxx)
This? This Cinemetrics thing? Movie nerd eyegasm.
And, should you consider that last video too highbrow, then have I got a treat for you. It’s a local commercial for a taxidermist created by YouTube sensations Rhett and Link as part of their IFC show “Commercial Kings.”
Joanna Robinson wishes she were in the Bahamas, where the Caribbean sea is blue.
