I still like RPattz as a person-shaped-person. I thought I was tired of him. I miss the days of 'Robert is Buvvered', but I honestly thought I didn't really have any more fucks left to give about him.

And then [livejournal.com profile] cleolinda posted her Breaking Dawn recap of awesomeness, and I found this tumblr full of his Twilight trolling (and lest nobody misses it, here is the brilliant 'HULK VS TWILIGHT' criticism of the books, movies, franchise, fans and anti-fans), and I remembered: hey, I really like that Pattinson guy.

Whatever.

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.

So here's the deal: I've kinda fallen in love with Pajiba.com. It looks like the website ONTDers go to during recess, with all the pop-culture whoring, Twilight bitching, JGL-obsessing commentary one could ever need (whilst ONTD is on recess).

So here are my 8 favorite Pajiba-shaped blog things (considering I'm going through Dustin Rowles' archive):

1. This unaccountably harsh review for 'Abduction' - I mean, honestly, what were you expecting of this movie? It makes "Payback" look like a work of art. But Dustin Rowles needs to drive the point home for all the Twihards who didn't get the clue, and in the process writes, wow, some bitter nasty shit. It's kind of marvelous, y'all.


2. Pajiba's 10 Most Bangable Celebrities On The Planet List - and for once, I agree with this kind of list. I agree A LOT.


3. Dance, MotherF**cker, Dance: Pop Culture's 20 Greatest Dancing GIFs - Pure, giffy enjoyment. :D


4. What Celebrities Would You Cast in a Muppet Lookalike Movie? - OF COURSE IT HAS KERMIT BALE.


5. Of These 15 Images, Which 3 Are NOT Michael Sheen? - A fabulous little homage for one of the (deservedly) busiest actors in the industry.


6. The Five Blandest Actors in Hollywood - I have two words for you: A diversion.


7. Looking back at '10 Things I Hate About You' from a female perspective - I agree with basically everything this woman wrote.


8. And since I've mentioned him, here's a JGL post roundup, because an obsession should always be encouraged: JGL turns 30, your crush is no longer pervy, JGL is cast in TDKR, Dustin Rowles lets loose the fangirl in him, TDKR full-cast (that we know of) pictorial (you bet your ass I enjoyed the fact they put Tom Hardy's pic right above his)



Yay! Now I can clean my browser and stop pretending I did this post for anyone else but myself!

It's still Memorial Day in the US. As a foreigner from a country that also has a memorial day, I find it very peculiar that many Americans take this day to do a BBQ or go shopping, considering how so many many other Americans are having a very solemn day of reminiscing, sometimes for soldiers who died very recently. I guess the culture of hope is stronger than the culture of death here, and that's not a bad thing to have. (the bad thing to have: a culture of ignorance) <3


And now, a miscellaneous post. :)

1. Lady Gaga was interviewed by Stephen Fry for the Financial Times.

The link is for the actual audio files of the interview, which is actually pretty fabulous and interesting. I could be mean and say Stephen Fry brings the intellectual out in the people around him, but that would not be entirely true here. Lady Gaga is a very smart woman. I guess I just forgot about it, lately. That is the mean thing I can say about her.

2. Shakespeare or Batman?

Welcome to the quote quiz THAT WILL DRIVE YOU INSANE. If you're not either a Shakespearean die-hard and/or a huge Batman fan, the quiz will be very very tricky to get completely right. HAVE FUN TRYING THOUGH. It's a fun quiz.

3.An Arthur/Eames fic rec! Early Returns by an anonymous writer (though I have a pretty good guess who it is, considering the amazing, crack-your-ribs-laughing sense of humor they have). Arthur is the assistant editor-in-chief, Eames is the annoying star reporter who keeps hitting on him. It is amazingly engrossing and FUCKING HILARIOUS and I LOVED it. I couldn't stop laughing about this fic for HOURS AND HOURS, it's that amazing.

4. Someone created a beautiful fantasy title sequence for still-in-development "Good Omens" film/tv project. I'm not surprised. People have been waiting for YEARS for "Good Omens" to be developed for the screen.





5. The leaked-on-purpose trailer for David Fincher's adaptation of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo", because even though the editing is a bit annoying, it looks AWESOME and the song choice for the trailer is A+

Are you worried about Egypt? I'm worried about Egypt. 80 million angry Arabs is nothing to snigger at. Especially 80 million angry Arabs under a corrupt regime for 30 years who decide to topple it during the age of Al-Qaeda. But this is a really good place to start reading up on what's happening plus news updates. Seems to be quiet at the moment, but that's pretty much because people are asleep.

And now for something completely different.

Reason #944849584053459 why I love Craig Ferguson:



Btw, the CW still sucks as a network, if only for the reason they've decided to air a re-run of Vampire Diaries instead of new SPN. (Although it does seem SPN fandom got its revenge...) You know, the Vampire Diaries, the show they're trying to sell with the campaign: "Catch VD" and "Got Wood?". YEAH, THAT NETWORK. Did someone ever try to "Christo" Dawn Ostroff? I'm just asking!

First of all, happy 2011 everyone! We're into the second decade of the 21st century, and the world still hasn't ended. Can someone tell that to all the nutcases littering Port Authority?

Secondly, I've been wanting to write this entry for a while now. Well, I also wanted to write a sum of 2010 entry too, but then life happened and I didn't have time or energy. Bah, humbug.

Anyhow. So, as I'm sure most of my flist knows, In his last show in 2010, Jon Stewart dedicated the entire show to the Zadroga (or 9/11 responders) bill in a carefully orchestrated move. The direct result of this show (and the full month of continuous campaigning Stewart did beforehand) was the passage of the bill in both the House and the Senate in the remaning week of the session. Which, of course, got everyone talking again about Stewart and what The Daily Show actually does. Most notably, the New York Times wrote a full article about Stewart's influence, making him into a 21st century Edward R. Murrow, and NPR chiming in somewhat more sanely (but it was pre-passage, which is important to remember). Then, in a responding article, analyst Andrew Cohen made a very good point by saying 'he's no Murrow, he's Stewart, and that's plenty'.

My two cents (as a huge nerd of media and politics, and a Stewart fangirl to boot)? There is a difference between what Jon Stewart normally does on The Daily Show, and what he did on December 16th. 9/11 is an issue that has been extremely sensitive to Jon Stewart, and so his sense of obligation to defend the people who defended New York that day (and dealt with Ground Zero onward) hugely played into this whole deal. When Jon Stewart normally campaigns for things, he does it on his free time (like "The Evening of Too Many Stars" autism charity benefit, for instance). I feel like media analysts keep getting him wrong, by lumping in his political views, his criticism and what The Daily Show does.

Jon Stewart may be the most brilliant political analyst of our time. He really is very, very bright at what he does. But what he does is not journalism; he analyzes political waves and the media that covers them, and in rare occasions like December 16th, he lobbies. Neither of these things are investigative journalism. The Daily Show is not a show of breaking news, but a satiric commentary on the 24-hour news networks. It's, quite simply, infotainment. You don't watch The Daily Show to hear about their latest discovery; you watch it to get its perspective on the big stories of the day/week/month. I keep gaping at respectable news outlets getting this simple distinction wrong, whether knowingly or mistakenly.

It's hard for the media to give Jon Stewart the benefit of the doubt. He repeatedly insists that he hosts a fake news show in a channel championing ridiculous comedy, and he self-deprecatingly refuses to acknowledge that he is an extremely intelligent man who is well-spoken and wields great cultural and political power. But the thing is, Jon Stewart knows not to blow his horns. In a field full of people with huge egos and horrible cases of narcissism, he keeps a low profile and talks humbly of his own successes. I'm sure he celebrated when he heard of the passing of the 9/11 bill, but he's not about to brag about it to Brian Williams in Nightly News, for instance. Other journalists seem to take it as a sign of cowardliness, but it really is just a sign of levelheadedness. Jon Stewart is a reasonable man.

And by the way? I thought the 12/16 show was incredibly touching. My god. At least one of those men was dying, for crying out loud. How much more human than this can you get.

SO GUESS WHAT, IT'S MY BIRTHDAY.



AND FOR MY BIRTHDAY, I'M BRINGING YOU THIS FOLLOWING AWESOME:

1. TOM HARDY, YOU ARE KILLING ME.

This dude, he finds a KITTEN IN THE STREET. TAKES THE KITTEN BACK TO HIS HOTEL AND TREATS IT AND FINDS SOMEONE TO ADOPT IT. Could this get any better? Why yes, because Tom Hardy? Is a HILARIOUS WRITER.

EXAMPLE:

On the way back from the internet cafe yesterday, there’s this kitten in the road, and I’m like. hey kat whssup? then I had to double take. that’s a small cat as cats go. it’s prolly like a couple months old max. so I’m like hey little fella, and I look about but no one is looking for this thing. so I stopped and turned round and said hey kat where’s your family, and he’s like I don’t know. then he wanders up to me and bang he’s in my scoop and I’m looking around I ask a few old ladies this your cat

2. TOM HARDY IS STILL KILLING ME. Because apart from being a nice man and a hilarious writer (AND SO GODDAMN HOT HE PINGS ALL MY DEAN WINCHESTER BUTTONS LIKE ALL THE FUCKING TIME), he's also well-spoken. WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK I CAN'T EVEN.



TOM HARDY, PLEASE TELL ME YOU MET MISHA COLLINS. AND THAT SOMEONE TOOK A VIDEO OF IT.

3. TOM HARDY AND CHRIS PINE, YOU ARE DOUBLE KILLING ME

Because you look like a beautiful gay couple and it's KILLING ME you're not actually playing a gay couple in this movie. Also whoever is dressing Hardy is CLEARLY a Deangirl. Also? A SAINT.

4. JON HAMM, NEVER WEAR UNDERWEAR AGAIN.

Because Hellloooooooo. :D

5. JON HAMM, YOU ARE AMAZING AND SPARKLY AND MAGICAL AND PLEASE NEVER STOP DOING COMEDY.





(sorry for the Hulu, international folk! I truly tried to find the clips anywhere else)

6. TOM HARDY WANTS TO TAKE YOU TO A GAY BAR. )

Tomorrow I can bitch about how "The Hobbit" will be filmed in 3D.

1. Tim Gunn makes a PSA for 'It Gets Better', talks about his own suicide attempt as a gay teen.

Oh, Tim Gunn. ♥ The love I have for you. Moreover, if you go down the comments section, someone embedded a Larry King video where he hosts a forum of gay celebs and icons (Gunn among them), talking about the recent escalation in anti-gay bullying and the suicides.

2. The Jewish Standard drops same-sex wedding notifications in its weddings section, to the outrage of many readers.

I'm not a reader of this paper, but let me tell you, if someone rants at you in Yiddisch about your homophobia and discrimination, you should listen.

3. Horrifying homophobic newspaper cover in Uganda leaks names of '100 top homos', tells to hang them.

File that under "monsters! not just at your neighborhood!". Tip of the iceberg, I'm sure.

Yeah, I'm still loving that movie. Loving the fic too, though I'm pretty much 100% lurker in the fandom. :)

1. Craziest dreams the cast of 'Inception' ever had.

Easily one of the best things to come out of this. You guys, actors' and directors' dreams? FUCKING INSANE. They're like ultimate fandom dreams. READ THEM.

2. A 50s style trailer for "Inception":



AWESOMENSS.

3. Tom Hardy? Still too sexy for his shirt. Especially if that shirt looks like it belongs to Dean Winchester.




ETA: And oh, man, do I have the worst timing or what.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt's brother Dan has died unexpectedly this Sunday. The news just started circulating tonight.

My condolences. D:

So.

Kanye West's SNL performances.

Lets talk, because I'm very conflicted. On one hand, I'm so completely impressed by the concept. On the other hand, was it really necessary for several ballerinas to be standing at Extension for so long? It was a really bad visual. There's also the deal with the simulated lesbian sex/powerplay, but then you have that awesome moment in Runaway with Kanye rapping to a single ballerina doing a solo. I'm not even putting my aversion to everything Kanye West into this equation. I'm actually really torn about whether I liked it or not, and the deal is, I really really REALLY wanna like it, because goddamn, we really did just see ballerinas doing a mix of barre and contemporary to live rapping.

Eh.
