The Sky Is Falling, But Don't Panic: Just Stare Into the Eyes of The Dinklage
Happy Friday, y’all!
Here’s hoping your Valentine’s Day was less shocking and overwhelming than this woman’s. I always imagined a Jumbotron proposal at some sporting event would be disappointing, but this “flash wedding” on “Good Morning America” takes the hope-you-like-what-we-picked-out-for-you cake. (Jezebel)
Today, apparently, is a huge day for the infidelity market. Feb. 15 is website Ashley Madison’s (where married people go for hook-ups) biggest day for new users. Where do most of the cheaters come from, outside of the top spot of Washington, D.C.? Austin and Houston, in second and third place. (Texas Monthly)
A less destructive way to pass your time this Friday is by watching stuff fly through the sky and hopefully not hitting us. It’s true: If you don’t have a telescope or binoculars handy today, log online to view live feeds the asteroid 2012 DA14 coming within 28,000 km of Earth. (Wired) Scientists are saying the meteor that exploded over Russia isn’t related, but if we all aren’t here tomorrow, well … See ya. (CNN)
Oh yes, I used a GIF. Want more? This trend piece on how they are “enjoying an unlikely vogue as the digital accessory of the moment” is adorable and was probably written by your grandmother. (NY Times)
More fierce than adorable, Beyonce, fresh off her win at the Super Bowl, is doing her damnedest to own the airwaves again Saturday. Head over to OWN to see Oprah’s exclusive interview with Blue Ivy’s mama before the star’s documentary, “Life is But a Dream,” airs on HBO. (TV Guide)
Did you miss this live chat with Joel McHale? It is greatness. His favorite scotch, btw, is Macallan 30, and he’d like you to send him some. (Uproxx)
Despite the movie’s stupid name, the fabulous Peter Dinklage has joined the cast of X-Men: Days of Future Past alongside Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Hugh Jackman. So much hotness. Now we just need Magneto and Professor X to hook up … (Celebitchy)
You know who looked like a mofo with all her fancy hats? Bess Truman. (BuzzFeed)
You know who’s the biggest badass right now? This guy. Yes, this video premiered yesterday, but whatever — it’s the gift that keeps on giving. JT 4 EVAH.
He and Jay-Z are going to tour. It will be perfect. (Rolling Stone)
