There will be a quiz later. Just leave a tab open for us, will ya?
“How Salon.com Rewrote My Headline and Turned Me Into an Internet Troll” — Dustin Rowles wrote a response to a major event on last week’s Game of Thrones for Salon.com, and they cheapened it with a bombastic headline that didn’t match the piece’s tone or thesis. Over at Pajiba, he fleshes out his original intent, rolls his eyes at new-fangled (bullshit) internet traffic tactics and probably burned a bridge.
“How Many Poop and Vomit Jokes Are In The Other Woman (And 24 Other Urgent Questions)” — Mike Ryan at ScreenCrush provides the kind of in-depth coverage of the shallow that you demand. I wonder if Bridesmaids‘ success is the reason there’s so much shit in female-led comedies now.
“Legend Confirmed: Atari 2600 E.T. Game Discovered at New Mexico Dig” — Adario Strange at Mashable gets to the bottom of a trash pile and explains what happens when you don’t send Geraldo Rivera to find something.
“Has Life in the Age of Casual Magic Made Movie Goers Numb to The Amazing?” — Drew McWeeny nails it. Absolutely nails it.
