Read all this in a hoarsely faint voice

Let's have a quick linkspam.

@scott_tobias: R.I.P. Ray Harryhausen. A true movie magician, and a master of wondrous, tactile effects that no combination of ones and zeroes can match.

@jenyamato: Here's a little Ray Harryhausen celebration I put together back in 2011, for his 91st birthday.

@comingsoonnet: Watch Iron Man 3's Stylish End Credits.

@simonpegg: Will be on Jimmy Kimmel tonight. The other guest is called Robert Downey something. Can't recall.

@comingsoonnet: First Photos of Sophie Okonedo and Zoe Kravitz in After Earth.

START THE COUNTDOWN @comingsoonnet: Ewan McGregor Replaces Bradley Cooper in Jane Got a Gun.

@TheCut Jennifer Lawrence totally photobombed at the #metgala and it's the best thing ever.

I was going to save all this and put it in front of the next recap, but then there was too much. Speaking of the next episode,


you might want to write that down on your calendar, if relevant to your interests. (Speaking of whom, my new favorite Tumblr. "face of trying to imagine the trouble mulder’s gotten himself into in 36 hours alone and getting a little overwhelmed by one’s own imagination.")

@particle_p: @cleolinda I almost bought this on the basis of the title. twitpic.com/coztt7

‏@cleolinda: I love how concerned that one llama looks.

@Jurisfiction16: I would love to see Hannibal's soulful sketches of Clarice holding a fully-grown llama in her lap.

Maybe it can be a petite lap llama?

I don't know how one of the show's editors found me, but here's an interesting bit of information:

(SPOILER for the end of the previous episode):

@arrakisfilm: ... And the decision to end the episode back in front of the fireplace for Hannibal's final sip was not scripted.

@cleolinda: The show played me like a violin this week, I have to say. (How was it scripted originally?)

@arrakisfilm: It was to end on the attack on Miriam. After seeing how Mads and Laurence played it, going back to them made perfect sense.

@cleolinda: It really, really did. I'm fascinated by the mix of expressions there--"I'm truly sorry" and then looking... kind of pleased?

Like, savoring both the drink and the memory? Because maybe the brandy really was people seriously, he is the worst. It's fascinating to me that he seems to have these emotions that you'd think wouldn't even be able to exist side by side: "I feel sympathy that you lost your trainee, except for the part where I DID IT AND I'D DO IT AGAIN."

Also, regarding "I am so sorry I murderized your protégée, Jack, no really," y'all pointed out two significant lines:

"Amuse-Bouche": "Have you ever lost a pony, Jack?"

Silence of the Lambs: "Jack Crawford sent a trainee... to me?"

I will never hear that line the same way again and I love it.

"Often described as deer-like or bearing the head of a stag, the wendigo... is thought of variously as a malevolent cannibalistic spirit that could possess humans or a monster that humans could physically transform into." o_O

Normally I am wary of arts and crafts, but I found this hilarious in spite of myself.

And also I have a sore throat and am going to lie back down again, the end. *capeswoosh*

Plushie Hannibal's suit needs moar plaid.

The pocket handkerchief was a nice touch, though.

A Wendigo, of course! This show - they really did their research! I am very impressed, and would like to very much to continue being impressed. Let Hannibal squeak by and get a second season.

Normally I am wary of arts and crafts, but I found this hilarious in spite of myself.

I couldn't leave that alone in the house.

I also tend to resist cutesy chibi versions of villains (well, that's a lie. I loved I Harth Darth), but I find that so funny that I probably could leave it in the house, yeah. Of course, queenanthai once dared me to leave the Edward Cullen doll "staring at me" while I slept, and I not only did so and slept like a baby, I took a picture of it staring at me in the dark just to freak her out.

Now, you get me one of those realistic NECA-style figures (or don't. Please don't) and I would probably keep it in a drawer in a room on a different floor, yeah.

Sore throats suck SO HARD. This freaking cough, man, I don't even. I sound like an old man with a twenty-year, two-pack-a-day habit. Feel better!

Yeah, mine's just gotten worse and worse today. I am genuinely thinking about going downstairs and busting into some ice cream here at a midnight. Because crushed ice would be loud and wake everyone up. Yes.

Love how Marion Cotillard and thenewwifefromMadMen see witness Jennifer's photobomb and crack up. Bet the guy hidden behind SJPs crazy hat is laughing too.

That seriously warmed my heart, it did.

Ever see the movie Ravenous? Guy Pearce! Robert Carlyle! Wendigo & Donner Party-inspired homoerotic cannibalism in a period setting! "He was licking me!"

I need to rewatch it...

Ravenous. Yes.

For some odd reason, I thought the "Colqhoun" character was meant to be a nod to Sawney Beane... o_O

Wendigo? *smacks forehead* Why did I not see that?

For whatever reason, I was pondering the Dire Ravenstag and thought of the Wild Hunt...

Well, I had no idea about the deer imagery, so I know that's why I didn't see that.

Also sitting here going O_O at the wendigo connection, not sure how I missed that either.

I saw this gifset from Entree and lol'd.


This artist on tumblr has done some very interesting illustrations for Hannibal although I... would make a difference choice than to render him almost Bruce Wayne broad-shouldered and imposing.

He's so pissed that he won't even bother with a fancy meal. He's going to make them into ground meat in a canned and processed sauce, probably served on cheap supermarket buns with barely edible potato chips.

I would like a petite lap llama. Immediately.

My mom fuckin' loves books like that. I can't complain, I had five longboxes of 90s comics.

Heh. My mom loves Clive Cussler and his stable of co-writers/ghostwriters/protégés. It makes me wonder if I'm going to hit my 40s or 50s and find some cozy pulp genre to settle into. I'm a sucker for biographies of royalty, is that what mine already is?

...Simon Pegg's anecdote about the prank he got going on location for Star Trek was awe-inspiring.

I went to bed obscenely early with my sore throat (like, 9:30 or something) and forgot to watch any of it. I'm guessing it's online like most other late night shows?

Silence of the Lambs: "Jack Crawford sent a trainee... to me?"


Okay, first off there is an eye thing in Sorbet at about the 41 minute mark. Not an action thing, just a closeup picture on a wall, so you know.

Actually, this is going to be in the recap, but someone else got a kind-of confirmation that beer isn't just people, it's MIRIAM. Notice how he said "two years"?

I've got to say something about that wendigo post because its been driving me insane but saying anything on tumblr seems useless. The text from that is literally the text from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wendigo only with the "Often described as deer-like or bearing the head of a stag" added. Wendigos are definitely related to cannibals but have no relation to deer what so ever in any lore I've ever seen and I checked around as soon as I saw that post to double check. Wendigos are usually man-like monsters.

Huh. Well, I nearly included the wendigo thing in this latest recap, and... now I'm glad I didn't.
