Did you “Community” fans enjoy that hour and half glut of goodness last night? I absolutely did. Though the show has been up and down this season, last night’s episodes were a solid reminder that, when it’s on its game, nothing beats that show for quirky pop-culture commentary. The great Alison Willmore has a fantastic article on why the show is at its best when it references itself.
Personally, my favorite episode was the video game one mostly because it brought back fond memories of demolishing everyone I know at Dr. Mario. I’ve never been a serious gamer, but if I were, I’d like to think I’d be able to pull off something like this. I take my hobbies seriously, yo! (Nerd Approved)

Speaking of Ginger Goddesses, the lovely Emma Stone was in Germany and promoted her Spider-Man movie with that Facebook guy…in song. (Film Drunk)
*Not at all forced Facebook transition!* As many of you know Facebook went public today. That means Mark Zuckerberg is now, officially, a gajillionnaire. You can follow his worth in real time, you know, if you enjoy feeling like a total failure. (WSJ)

The Ginger God of late night, Conan O’Brien, paid a visit to David Letterman last night. The ensuing Jay Leno impressions are out of control. You haven’t lived until you’ve seen Conan’s red hair flop around during a signature Leno head waggle. (WG)
