Wow, that was a mighty tangent. Anyway: a small--but excellent--smattering of linkspam from my gigantic backlog:
ZOMG JACOB. The guy at EW totally agrees that it's Locke in some form, by the way. The nose doesn't quite look right, now that I look at it closely, but it makes as much sense as anything.
Queen concludes visit with toast, joke. "In Washington, she honored American soldiers at the National World War II Memorial, visited sick children at a hospital and stood graciously as the president started to suggest she had lived in the 18th century." *facepalm*
youngcurmudgeon: "What may be the best headline ever."
Something I had fun with, uh, last weekend: The POTC3 pirate flag maker.
Gigundo OOTP stills, many of which we've seen before, but at least a couple that I hadn't.
I have a short list of famous people I would like to have shot into the sun, and this week, one of them? Goin' to jaaaaaaail! "[Paris] Hilton, who parlayed her name and relentless partying into worldwide notoriety, must go to jail on June 5 and she will be allowed no work release, no furloughs, no use of an alternative jail and no electronic monitoring in lieu of jail, Superior Court Judge Michael T. Sauer ruled after a hearing."
Paris may end up serving half her sentence. Thanks for HARSHING MY BUZZ, dude.
A new Stardust ad/poster via Neil Gaiman. ("My own suggestion, 'Stardust. It's not a sequel to anything,' was appreciated but, probably wisely, rejected.")
The only spider I have ever found to be cute. You know why? That spider is totally throwing up the horns, y'all. That spider is mid-headbang. That spider is EFFING METAL.
$10M Dukes of Hazzard car bid somehow not real. " 'If this guy was just doing it as a prank or to ruin someone else's chances, he deserves to be hit in the pocketbook,' said Stockman, who gave the winning bidder a negative rating in eBay's feedback forum." Anything but that!
'Spider-Man 3' Is "Silly," Says Lucas. But is it rough, like sand, and not smooth like your skin?
Via Fandom Wank: What THE HELL. Here's the thing: You can have a Sideshow maquette of Mary Jane washing Spidey's costume (while barefoot and wearing pearls, no less). You can have her leaning over at a physically impossible angle. You can sculpt her as having pretty much no internal organs. You can have her tits falling out of her top. You can have a hole in the ass of her jeans, and you can even have yards of visible thong. But you cannot do all these things at once and expect female comic fans, who DO EXIST, not to be completely disgusted with your company. Galadriel is so disappointed in you.
