  • This is a photo of some 3D street art that was painted in Madrid to advertise The Dark Knight Rises. It’s great because all 3D-style street art is great because how do they even do it? Check out the trailer for Dark Knight Rises, looks like this sleeper might just become a hit! -Geekologie
  • Jerry Lewis is directing a coming stage-musical adaptation of The Nutty Professor in Nashville. Duh. -NYTimes
  • Hey ladies, guess what? You excited to hear something? Want to guess it first? Ok, I’ll tell you. Blake Lively says she has never exercised and will probably start someday! Ahhhhh! Ladies! Her secret’s out! -Celebitchy
  • The New Yorker blog, Culture Desk, did a piece on the nice little web series “7 Minutes In Heaven,” and its twenty-eighth and final episode, featuring the tiny and sweet Joanna Newsom. Read it! -NewYorker
  • Speaking of things you should “read it!” about, yesterday McSweeney’s published this list: “Suggested Buzzfeed Articles.” It’s great. You can already tell its great and you haven’t even read it yet. -McSweeneys
  • And, THIS JUST IN, BuzzFeed has started creating and posting them. -BuzzFeed
  • Ah, The Hunger Games has finally cast its “Finnick”! The moment we’ve all been waiting for! Each and every one of us, without exception! -AVClub
  • The Week has put together a post guessing who the next judges of American Idol may be. Who are your guesses? Here are mine: Tom Waits, Fiona Apple, and the singer of Japandroids for however long he lasts. -TheWeek
  • Speaking of Dark Knight Rises (we were) (a bit ago), Chris Nolan explains here why The Dark Knight Rises won’t be released in 3D, and it is a very good explanation and he is correct. -FilmDrunk
