Last night, I went over to to see what the title of Sunday's PD episode was, and discovered the hilarious photo recaps being done on their PD community. Really funny, and filled with great nonlolcats. I grabbed a bunch for myself because they make AWESOME comment thread pics. So I thought I'd share.

Ethan haz a mad:

Also a sad:

Plus, it's getting near dinnertime:

Like? There's plenty more... )

Enough with the snark. Here are some pics that just yummy:

Ooo, baby... )

Last but not least, a couple of .gifs:

Yeah, I thought that'd get your attention... )

So, hope you can all find uses for these. I'm having fun posting them on forums, myself. Enjoy!

In the premiere episode of PD last week, did anyone else notice the change in Ethan's tone once his daddy's boys plucked him from the train? Up til then, as he was traveling, he looked kind of drawn in and apprehensive - clearly he was anticipating his next fit, which should be due pretty soon, seeing as some time's past since the last one. But once he woke up from being tolchocked on the head, he shifted to being rather amused. I could almost hear him thinking, "Oh, I'm gonna kill you? That's alright, then." He starts out tensed up about killing innocent people, and then seems almost relieved when he realizes he's gonna carve up a bunch of assholes!

I love that Josh decided to play it that way. I love this show. The sense of humor is fierce.

LOL. Key & Peele have managed to come up with a way to include Keanu Reeves in the film named after him. It's cute, too: during a drug-induced hallucination, the kitten comes to one of the guys and talks to him - in Keanu's voice, of course.

Okay, they got me. I'll see it. I might even pay money for it. Guess the guy can still get to me. (I just wish he'd find his way back from Kung Fu Action Land. I miss him.)

Have any of you seen The Big Short?

It's a great film, and really deserves to win the Oscar this year. An entertaining and engaging look at the roots of the 2008 economic meltdown, it manages to present the whole awful morass in a way that is comprehensive and in-depth, and at the same time light on its feet and actually funny. The cast is magnificent (the film is worth watching for Steve Carell alone), and the script is charming and adroit.

One of the best things about it is the way it explains the whole confusing, insane, tangled mess. Whenever the plot starts getting into areas where an average person would get completely lost in econo-tech jargon (and who wouldn't, given that even the damn people who precipitated this horror didn't understand half of what they were doing), the film jumps through the fourth wall and brings in someone completely unrelated to the story to explain things. But it's never an economist or pundit. It's someone like Gordon Ramsay in his kitchen, who looks at you and says, "Okay, I'm going to explain derivatives now. Imagine the economy is like a pizza..." He then goes on in detail, comparing the problem to something like slicing up a pizza**, and then "Now back to the story!" There are others in the film like that, well-known people taking the problems apart and explaining them in completely non-economic terms so that you can continue the story now knowing what the fuck they're talking about in this thing.

It's a stroke of genius. Not only does it make sure your feet are squarely on the ground through the whole movie - or at least as much as possible, since economists still have a hard time explaining just what went down - but it also sustains the intended comedic tone, since the actual events are just so fucking maddening and ultimately depressing if you think about it too much. But this device, along with the magnificently off-kilter performances, keep the film dancing nimbly along, charming you while it's informing you. (Christian Bale as the definitely on-the-spectrum economic analyst who dreams up the idea that tanked our WHOLE FUCKING WORLD starts thing off beautifully, and it only gets better from there.)

Seriously, see this film. I know the 2008 meltdown is not something one would expect to be made into an entertaining romp, but you'll be glad you did. Not only will you get to see great actors in a mind-bending puzzle of a film, but you'll finally get close to understanding just


You'll be glad you did. Trust me.

** I can't remember if it was actually a pizza he talked about, as I saw the film about a month ago, but that's the general idea.

Here is a great and incredibly well-made fake trailer for an imagined prequel to Back to the Future...

1.21 Gigawatts - How exactly did Doc Brown get hold of that plutonium?

It's quite surprisingly good. The maker cobbled together a load of clips and came up with this dark, exciting take on Doc Brown's willingness to go to the ends of the earth and back to bring his dream of time travel to life.

For those of you who watch Game of Thrones:

Start the video.
Pause the video.
Unpause the video.
Press "8".
Press "8" again.
Press "8" again...

You're welcome.

Embedding has been removed on that video, but trust me... YOU NEED TO DO THIS.

Okay, I DEMAND a .gif of Peter Jackson waving that flag. NOW DAMMIT.

I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. Oh, John. Don't ever change. EVER.

For those of you getting all gooey-eyed today...

Oh, you're surprised by my attitude? *snark*

Hugs to all, really.

AHAHAA. GREAT video I just found on Youtube:

Graham Norton gets the opinions of Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy
on various pieces of slash fan art.

This is SO HILARIOUS. Graham really loves to trot out risque (and not so risque) fan art to flummox people on his show. He's done it to Daniel Radcliffe, and I would swear on the Goddess that he's done it to Elijah as well, but I can't find a clip of it on YT, damnit.

As someone who's done a little fanart and photomanipping (not to mention fics), I find these sections utterly wonderful. Daniel and Elijah were both gracious but clearly weirded out by it, poor dears. (My memory of Elijah was that he turned beet red but kept smiling and was quite calm.)

But this clip is the winner. Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, and James McAvoy came on the show to promote X-Men, and it is really one of the best shows of Graham's I've seen. They are a fucking team, those three, so funny. And Graham did the fanart thing, this time it was original drawings instead of manips or fiction (ETA: Scratch that - I just watched again and they do talk about fics), and Michael and James are utterly hilarious as they deal with critiquing the artwork and commenting on the content. James is especially funny, his wit is so dry and lightning-fast.

I like these guys so much. A guy who can have fun with this sort of thing without being mean about it is a wonderful thing. Let's make more of them!

Note: If you hang on after the clip, you'll see their entrance in one of the little preview windows. Too. Much. Yum.

This is hysterical.

Nano-Impressions with Ross Marquand

This guy does killer impressions. This video has him doing actors in three- to five-second bites, all of them dealing with some boring, mundane bit of reality, such as Harrison Ford losing a sneeze, George Clooney trying to get a word in, and Liam Neeson going through an automated phone system. And it is killer. (Antonio Banderas forgetting his password made me lose my shit.)

Just watch it. Trust me.

GREAT thread going on at Metafilter today:

Baby Hitler: Jeb! got asked if he would go back in time and kill Hitler as a baby. Hilarity ensues.

The comments are a riot. Metafilter has a lot of very erudite and funny people in its community. My two favorites are the link to the International Association of Time Travelers bulletin 1147, and this:

Say what you will about Hitler, but at least he killed Hitler.

Fucking great stuff, with lots of fun links. Do go and enjoy. :)

LOL, I love this video.

Yelling Cat

Whenever I play it, the cats instantly freak out. I just played it now, and at the first sound, Frodo looked up with this "Who the fuck is THAT?" look on his face.

I'd really love to know what this cat is saying, because apparently every other cat thinks he's an asshole.

Am currently watching Elijah's fabulously ridiculous zombie apocalypse film, Cooties.

AHAHAHAAAA. This thing is every shade of fucked up. Elijah must have had a ball doing it. I really love the inside jokes about his films. The LOTR reference was right out there on the nose, but the Faculty references are a bit more subtle.

Me? No! I don't do brave things!

I fell out at that one. And the stalking through the halls sequence - I'm sure Zeke would've been very happy to have that golf-ball launcher. It's just too fucking funny.

Gotta love movies written by fanbois.

Werner Heisenberg, Kurt Gödel, and Noam Chomsky walk into a bar.

Heisenberg turns to the other two and says, “Clearly this Is a joke, but how can we figure out if it’s funny or not?”

Gödel replies, “We can’t know that because we’re inside the joke."

Chomsky says, “Of course it’s funny. You’re just telling It wrong.”

Pa-dum-pum. Ssssss.

Walter Sobchek tells off Donald Trump

GREAT mashup video featuring the very LOUD Walter Sobchek from The Big Lebowski reacting to the fatuous bullshit slung by Agent Orange.

* giggle * You're welcome.

Yeah, okay

Trevor Noah really was funny last night. He's got a sharp sense of humor, puckish, I'd say. He definitely hasn't turned me off, so I'm going to continue giving him a chance.

And he's cheerful. I'm sure it's because he's new to the game, but he seems really up for the nonsense. Jon was really squeezed out at the end - who can blame him? - so Trevor is a big contrast. I'm interested and curious to see where he will go with this.

Also, VERY happy with the new Colbert show. Oh, he is having such a good time. It's lovely to see. And gratifying that he's not lost his punch. His guests are varied and interesting, he's a GREAT interviewer, able to draw out anyone. (Except Trump. He still managed to sound like a jackass.) (Not that that wasn't fun.) And he's brought along some of his TDS/TCR schtick, last night instituting a new segment reminiscent of the dearly departed "This Week In God" from TDS, a segment I always looked forward to, as I'm delighted by really well-educated comic commentary on the doings of religion. Stephen is excellent at that.

Plus, watching him dance at the beginning of every show is utterly wonderful. He can make me smile no matter how bad a day I've been having. *sigh*
