You know, my upright citizens, that I have a fairly strict No HuffPo Policy. However I’m making an exception for this article that reader Quorren sent my way. It’s the five bills the NY state senate has voted on instead of the long-delayed marriage equality act. CORN IS IMPORTANT, Y’ALL. (Huffington Post)
Speaking of readers, two of our Pajibans, Jocelyn Kelvin & Brock Wilbur, are working on a film called Your Friends Close. Take a gander at this adoooooooorable Kickstarter video and then kick a little kale their way. Kale can mean money in this scenario but it can also just mean love and support. Hurray for creative Pajibans! (Kickstarter)
You guys know that Elijah Wood is doing a new TV show, right? About a man in a dog suit? Based on a successful Australian series about a man in a dog suit? It looks super oddball, but word on the street is that it’s good. Here’s an intriguing interview with creator/star Jason Gann. (HoboTrashcan)
Speaking of oddball, Pajiban Sara Tonin (she’s not the oddball part) pointed out this splendid mash-up of “Arrested Development” and “Game of Thrones” (that’s the oddball part). Unreality has a round-up of the best images. THERE MIGHT MAYBE BE SPOILERS I DON’T KNOW. My favorite is the one of Joffrey and Jamie. (Unreality)
This new photography technology is amazing. Have you seen this? Lytro? It allows you to change the focal point of your photo after you’ve taken the picture. Go ahead, play around on the website, and if the cat picture scares you, don’t say I didn’t warn you. (All Things D)
Speaking of fearsome felines, I find this jewelry made entirely of cat fur to be, well, appalling. Also, no, no I will not tell you why I was visiting the website Modern Cat. (Modern Cat)
The Zombie Revolution will be magnetized. GRRRRR ARRRRGHHH. Which reminds me, it’s our man Joss’s birthday. Happy birthday, Joss! To celebrate, here is an amazing speech he gave from a few years back. Come to hear Meryl Streep say “Buffy The Vampire Slayer,” stay for the tears when she mentions Joss’s now defunct Wonder Woman project. (Youtube)
It’s also the great Alan Turing’s birthday. What? You don’t know who Alan Turing is? Get thee to a bookshelf, go. (Um, yeah, get a bosun’s chair too, I guess.) Pick up a copy of “Cryptonomicon” and read it until you’re done. (Hi Lobrow)
Speaking of bookshelves, as Rob mentioned earlier, the JK Rowling website Pottermore launched today. While I still think it’s a bit of a money grab, it’s at least a fairly inventive and interactive one. Not like Rowling needs the money…jeepers check out this infographical breakdown of the Multi-Billion Dollar Potter Empire. (Fast Company)
T’would appear Pajiba 10 darling (have you voted yet?!?!), Emma Stone, is shacking up with that even-toed ungulate, Andrew Garfield. Do you think they kiss upside down in the rain? I would totally do that if I were them…WHAT? (Celebitchy
Speaking of fiesty redheads, it turns out a portrait long-thought to be of Vincent van Goh is actually of his brother, Theo. Was it the two ears that tipped you off, art historians? I’m still waiting on that Lonely Space Turkey painting. (BBC)
That was an obscure “Doctor Who” joke! Oh joy! Speaking of, here’s a super cute and easy Dalek costume. She’s got the plunger but she’s missing the KitchenAid hand mixer attachment. You know, in case you need to whip up a post-extermination meringue. (Fashionably Geek)
Though it may seem like a joke, this CPR video starring Ken Jeong is for real. And, actually, rather educational.
Speaking of Jeong, my charming Chang-o-philes, this is possibly one of my favorite videos in the history of the internet. I know, I hyperbolize, but I mean it this time, I play it constantly. It’s old, it’s got a ton of views, you’ve likely seen it, but I would be remiss if I neglected those few of you who haven’t. The language? SO NSFW. Dirty earworm’d.
