  • Have you ever watched American Pickers? It’s a show on some channel where two guys go around to people who are selling things and sometimes they buy the things if they think they can sell them for a lot of money. It’s kind of sad because kind of the whole point of the show is to rip off normal people who don’t know what their stuff is worth. But, you know, whatever. It’s fine. And Jack White is going to be on it for some reason? Here is a preview of that! -Stereogum
  • More Jimmy Kimmel challenge about giving your kids terrible presents and filming their reactions. Jimmy Kimmel should’ve done one where he told kids to ask their parents if this was “some sort of Jimmy Kimmel challenge” when they got their gifts on Christmas. Turn the tables. -StuffIStole
  • Oooh, watch this video, “Fishing Under Ice.” All the blogs that are posting it are posting it with a caption like, “Do you get what they’re doing????” And, honestly, NO. I mean, I kind of do. But how are they doing it? I don’t know how they’re doing it. I didn’t watch it all the way til the end, though. Do they tell you how they did it at the end? Can someone else watch this for  me? -LaughingSquid
  • Amanda Seyfried was offered the role of Cosette in the upcoming film version of Les Miserables.Good for her! I guess! I hope she can sing! Also Taylor Swift was offered a role. Remember when Peter Kraus was mad at Haddie for listening to too much Taylor Swift last night on Parenthood? Hahah. Ah, Peter Kraus. -SlashFilm
  • So Bane’s voice is definitely for sure maybe NOT being remixed in The Dark Knight Rises. “Breaking news.” My goodness. Who even cares at this point. You know what’s available on Netflix instant? Bronson. Just watch that instead, who cares. -FilmDrunk
  • Just a wonderful little cat video that’s pretty normal and just the kind of thing you see anytime, like any time you turn on a TV or a computer, or if you just hang around people and cats enough. -TheDailyWhat
  • Here’s a pretty good story about some Angelina Jolie/Brad Pitt/Rachel from Friends baby drama, if you’re into that, which EVERYONE apparently is still, one hundred years later. It is a good story, though. Read it. -Dlisted
  • Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake are engaged! I hope they never break up. Imagine the Tim and Eric “Brownie Dreams” sketch and then instead of “I hope I never wake up” replace it with “I hope they never break up.” That is how I feel. -Celebuzz
