1. I've been listening nonstop to Florence and The Machine's "Ceremonials" (the deluxe version with the 4 extra songs) all week, only to come to the conclusion that it has no real outstanding song like "Lungs" had in "Cosmic Love" (one of the best songs of the decade, unquestionably), but that is a lot because the vast majority of "Ceremonials" is fucking STUNNING. Despite the deep and obvious influences the album draws from the 80s and 90s (particularly Björk and new-age rock), it transcends them into a uniquely Florence Welch scent sound. :D Which is to say, SHE IS JUST SO FUCKING AWESOME, YOU GUYS. Ugh I love her theatricality.

2. One of Jared Padalecki's dogs died today. Sadness that anyone would lose a beloved pet. I've seen it happen way too many times in the last few months.

3. Dustin Rowles discusses why Ryan Reynolds is not a leading man, and what makes a leading man in general. This is a much preferable article to the one he wrote before that, about how he wishes well for a bunch of douchebag actors who didn't particularly deserve their big portfolio to begin with. Ryan Reynolds is a good dude by the sound of it, but he is about as charismatic a leading man as John Slattery is. Which is to say, he is the perfect actor for supporting, scene-stealing roles, but not for the heavy lifting. However, Hollywood has apparently been experiencing a shortage of American leading men who are manly (RARRRRR! MANLY!), and had to resort to those pesky Brits, Aussies and Canadians for testosterone in target demographic age. Which is total bullshit, of course, but the point about Ryan Reynolds is well-made.

4. This happened:

And then the internet collapsed upon itself AND WAS NO MORE. Or at least tumblr did.
