Good afternoon, Jibers. How are you feeling? It’s a good March, isn’t it? It’s the 15th Anniversary of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” Hunger Games arrives in 10 days, “The Walking Dead” is becoming the show we wanted it to be (kind of), “Game of Thrones” is right around the corner, and “Community” returns in two days. Speaking of “Community,” Dan Harmon has a “Law & Order” themed episode on tap, and here’s the brilliant “L&O”-style opening. (WarmingGlow)
Also, while we’re on the subject of “The Walking Dead,” I didn’t even catch the almost too obvious homage to Office Space in this week’s brilliant opening montage. Set to the right music, however, and it all comes together. Die motherfuckers die! (Uproxx)
My take-away from the red carpet photos for the premiere of The Hunger Games? Either Jennifer Lawrence is very tall or Josh Hutcherson is very, very short. (Evil Beet)
While we’re on the subject of politics, an interesting study has revealed that Tina Fey’s impression of Sarah Palin on “SNL” actually discouraged Young Republicans and women from supporting the 2008 GOP ticket. (WashPo)
Travel with me down the rabbit hole of Blind Items, where Robert Downey, Jr. is possibly passing on salacious tidbits about Hollywood celebs, including some very troubling gossip about Hayden Panettiere. It’s hard to believe it’s RDJ, but then again, all the dots line up, including his list of people in Hollywood he considers “GREAT.” (Jezebel)
The Green Hornet is another one of those films that many consider a box-office failure, despite the the films tidy profit ($220 million on a $120 million budget). However, we should not expect a sequel. (The Playlist)
One of my favorite directors, Jonathan Levine (50/50, The Wackness) hasn’t yet broken through. I think this next project may do it. (Slashfilm)
A Walt Disney biopic? Make it happen, Disney, if only for this fan-made poster.
A few years ago, if I’d seen Julia Roberts say, “My kids are more book people,” I’d have been, “Right on!” Now, I’m like: Oh, cram it woman. Those books don’t read themselves at six in the morning, unless you have an army of nannies. (Celebitchy)
Discovery’s “Man vs. Wild” with Bear Grylls is no more. (THR)
Guys, it’s time to let go of The Phantom Menace. Seriously. Stop being all Kim Novak about it. (HoboTrashcan)
If you’ve got a band, here are four social media apps that may help you launch a career. (GammaSquad)
In case you missed it, in an interview with Elle magazine, Jon Hamm called Kim Kardashain “a fucking idiot.” The fucking idiot, or more likely her slightly less idiotic representative, took to Twitter to rebut said allegation of fucking idiocy. (The Daily Beast)
The fucking idiot, however, cannot rebut Jon Hamm’s sexiness. On the occasion of his 40th birthday, EW has tracked down the 40 awesome images of Hamm. (Popwatch)
Speaking of the fucking idiot, she decided to go blonde for a day. Not a good look, lady. (Buzzfeed)
Here’s a novel thought, from David Chase himself: “The Sopranos” and “Seinfeld” should’ve switched endings. (Dave Chen)
Andre Royo from “The Wire,” Sarah Wayne Callies from “The Walking Dead,” and Julie Benz from “Dexter” (among others) spell out the rules for spoilers, namely that there is an expiration date, two weeks for a regular episode, two months for a season finale, and one year for a series finale. But what about movies based on books that have been out for years, like “The Walking Dead,” “Game of Thrones” and The Hunger Games? Also, Dumbledore dies.
Like Joanna, I don’t do cute cats or puppy links. But cute babies? I’m powerless. For now. Check out this video of one woman’s nine-month pregnancy reduced to 90 seconds.
