Two Geek Gods Meet At Comic-Con. Mind If I Squeeze In The Middle And Just...Wriggle Around A Little?
My darling, filthy bookworms, after you’ve exhausted yourself thinking up dirty alternates for classic titles (“Atlas Splooged” and “Romeo in Juliet” are my favorites so far), go ahead and douse yourself in this new perfume (Paper Passion) that allegedly smells of books. Having worked in many a bookshop, my best guess is that it smells vaguely of mildew. Mmmm. (Laughing Squid)
Speaking of book smut, here’s a hilarious GoodReads review of “50 Shades Of Grey”…with gifs. (GoodReads)
I apologize to all you non-“Breaking Bad” watchers. For the next seven weeks we’re likely to be mildly obsessed. Here’s Dustin with all the “Chekhovian Guns” from the last four seasons of the series. Beneke’s Rug is definitely my favorite. (WG)
Here’s an early indication that Bryan Cranston alone may be worth the Total Recall admission price. (io9)
Nerd worlds colliding is a fairly common site at Comic-Con, but this photo of Nathan Fillion and Matt Smith warms the cockles of my heart and other regions of my pants. (Nerd Approved
In “some things never change” news, the president of “Chick-fil-A” prays for the arrogance of our generation for “allowing” gay peoples to get married. You know what, that’s fine, keep peddling your death biscuits and foot lettuce. I think we’re better off without you, Chick-fil-A. (Gothamist)
Who here is excited for the Olympics? I’m more of a Winter sports girl me-self, but these high-res photos of the athletes in training are fantastic. (The Big Picture)
If you care about the new iPhone 5, here is a hint as to what we can expect. Something taller and thiner? Awwww, I love you my fat, squat iPhone 4. I’ll never leave you. (TechCrunch)
Matt Zoller Seitz over at Vulture reveals his favorite TV fight. I don’t know that I agree. I prefer that time Silas 12-pointed Slippery Dan. (Vulture)
And though I’m trying not to bombard you with too many Batman links, here’s an interview where Nolan craps all over 3-D. I can’t pass that by. (Salon)
Finally, my jaded cynics, here is a collection of shots that may restore your faith in cinema. It’s a little arty, so go ahead and pour yourself and afternoon glass of wine. You deserve it.
