You Think Everything Daniel Day-Lewis Makes Is Genius? Meet His Charmingly Homophobic Rap Artist Son.
As you know we’ve been recently inundated with more Breaking Bad content? Why? Well the release of the complete DVD box set, that’s why. Here’s show runner Vince Gilligan goofily unpacking the goodies out of their hokey barrel packaging. (Uproxx)
Speaking of Breaking Bad, the director of Catching Fire admits the he binge-watched the entire series and that the tale of Walt and Jesse was a huge influence on the Hunger Games sequel. Jennifer Lawrence AND Breaking Bad? It’s like this article was bred in a lab specifically for y’all. (HuffPo)
And while we’re on the subject of frightening lab creations, James Woods is hosting a fascinating series on the Science Chanel about the future of robotics. Insert your “overlord” and “Skynet” jokes here. Woods gives a great interview in which he asserts that robots will someday have the vote. (io9)
For your afternoon beard pleasure, Dustin has ranked the “That Guy” actors from Deadwood. John Hawkes is only #11? Well, you can’t argue with #1. (WG)
The amazing Chiwetel Ejiofor posed for a Vogue pictorial with Kate Moss. Having just seen About Time I am freshly interested in Ms. Moss but I’m not feeling her here. Ejiofor looks like James f*cking Bond and Moss looks like a wax figure of herself. What happened to that cheeky girl on the beach? (Celebitchy)
Vulture has a complete rundown of the way in which Titanic dominated our pop culture in 1998. If I had to come up with one word for this article, I would say “extensive.” If I got to use four words, I would say “Pepe Silvia level bonkers.” (Vulture)
Speaking of the ’90s, DListed thinks they have figured out why, exactly, America’s caffeine pill-addicted sweetheart, Elizabeth Berkley, made Showgirls. It’s because those monsters at Bayside High wouldn’t let her wear a two-piece. That, uh, makes sense. (DListed)
Did you know that today is International Men’s Day? Yeah, my knee jerk reaction was “that sounds about as useful as ‘International White Person’s Day.’” But this actually sounds kind of interesting. (Wikipedia)
Fritter away your afternoon with this amazing Film Thesis Generator. (Underscoopfire)
Oh, friends, I went and saved the best for last. Daniel Day-Lewis has a son, Gabe, and apparently he feels very oppressed by his famous father. One of his lyrics? “Judgin’ someone for their dad is just as bad as being racist.” Oh. Oh dear. You can hear that and the charming “Gabe Day-Lose-It!” lyric here.
As for the homophobia? Ah that comes here in the second half of this rap “battle.” Which is really more of a rap “skirmish.” Or, if we’re being honest, a rap “slap fight.” (via Noisey)
