Knock-Knock, Who's There? What Do Jennifer Lawrence and "Game of Thrones" Have in Common? Plus, Your First Look at Catching Fire
How you doin’, my fellow Pajibans? For my first ever Pajiba Love, I thought we should talk about sex.
Specifically the interview that comic book writer Joe Casey (Godland, Automatic Kafka, Uncanny X-Men, so many good things) gave about his new monthly series called SEX. (See? I wasn’t lying.) For those, like me, who were way into discussing the foibles of Alison Brie as Captain America, check out what a professional has to say about sex in comics and why it’s a worthy subject matter. (Comics Alliance)
Meanwhile, also at Comics Alliance… these are are some of the best costumes and photographs of cosplayers that I’ve ever seen. Little Doctor Doom is by far my favorite. (CA)
Don’t worry, I didn’t forget about the Lady Lawrence. Apparently J-Law is the new Li-Lo, stumbling drunk out of the Chateau Marmont with questionable friends? Maybe it’s because I’ve finally gotten into the Song of Ice and Fire books, but, I’m not entirely sure what this story is about. I kept reading it as “Chateau Mormont” and was disappointed every time I realized it wasn’t. (Celebitchy)
Speaking of J-Law, here’s the first image from Catching Fire, featuring Katniss and Finnick.
With the subject of ladies and their parts still fresh in our heads, “Justified’s” Walton Goggins waxes poetical about the female anatomy. Our Mostly Benevolent Overlord points out the most salient bits, and, really, who could disagree? (Uproxx)
Since we’re tangentially on the subject of TV shows we love, Danger Guerrero has an excellent piece up about why it’s OK for NBC to cancel “Community.” Hey, at least with Dan Harmon leaving, if the show sucks when it returns, we can always pretend the season three finale is actually the series finale, right? (Warming Glow)
Before you ask: Yes, there’s a theme here. Mostly that I’m using the crutch of semi-natural segues to get us from link to link. In that vein, the best animated series on TV that isn’t named “Archer” is coming back! Here’s some new pics to tide you over until “Venture Bros.” returns later this year. The subtlety of a pterodactyl mounting a jet intrigues me greatly. (BoingBoing)
Stepping away from the fictional for a moment, it looks like researchers (students? student researchers?) at the University of Texas at Arlington have devised a better way to understand supernovae. You know, those things that can cause black holes and neutron stars, two of the most deadly phenomena in the galaxy? Since these guys are in my neck of the woods, if they successfully prevent our cosmic destruction, I would gladly meet them at Bentley’s and buy them the adult beverage of their choosing. (PhysOrg)
If you weren’t blinded by that science, here’s the trailer for the upcoming retro-effects short film, C: The Movie . Last year, I wrote an article about the Kickstarter funded project and I’ve been looking forward to it ever since. Good news,
everyone me, C is coming out January 28th!
Lastly, but most certainly not leastly, comedian Paul F. Tompkins, a haberdasher’s wet dream, sings the theme to Skyfall. He’s no Adele, but his rendition quickly stops being funny and starts being real(ly pretty good) by the first chorus. Truly, the “F” stands for F*ckin’. Enjoy!
Rob Payne also writes the comic The Unstoppable Force, tweets on the Twitter, tumbls on the Tumblr, and his wares can be purchased here. He honestly hasn’t been this nervous about a post since his first.
