  • The Austin Powers franchise is getting a Broadway musical, THANK GOD. Finally another actor gets the chance to take on the roll of Mini Me. Do you think females can try out for that role? Actually, do you think me and Gabe can play Mini Me and Dr. Evil? I’m pretty sure Gabe loves musicals and would extra love to take part in an Austin Powers one.

  • The teaser trailer for Lena Dunham’s new HBO series Girls went online today! It will premiere in April and I will watch it then, even if it turns out that I only kind of like it. -HBO
  • Speaking of HBO things that went online today, here is the Game of Thrones season two trailer! -HBO
  • There are a lot of Louis C.K. things to cover so here they all are in one single bullet point. Ok, I’m sure we all know this but just in case we don’t, you can now purchase Louis C.K.’s special online for $5. Great. Also, there is a long feature about him in Rolling Stone. ALSO, he answered questions on reddit today. The End!
  • The popular Twitter account @shitgirlssay is now either a web series or at least a web video. To be honest and real with everyone, I enjoy this Twitter account. I’ve always wanted to send this one in, but I never have: “I’ll pay you in baked goods!” That one’s pretty good, right? No need to respond because I am well aware that it is very good. -@shitgirlssay
  • So I guess Anthony Bourdain wanted to include a little Christmas short about this scary Alpine Christmas creature called Krumpus in his No Reservations Christmas special, but it was too gross and scary to actually air on TV. So now you can watch it here on the Internet! Great. I already did, it was a delight. -BestWeekEver
  • Daniel Craig thought Quantum of Solace sucked, just like you did. That guy just looooves to keep it real. It’s almost like, hey, maybe keep it a little faker sometimes, Daniel Craig! Relax! -FilmDrunk
  • Meryl Streep is on the cover of Vogue. Congrats! I thought only people who could fit into the sample sizes could be on the cover of Vogue? Where did I hear that? Have they stopped doing that? Some of my favorite things to talk about are things that I am unsure of that make me look dumb. -Dlisted
  • Here are photos from Barbara Walters’ “10 Most Fascinating People” special. Are we all on it? Click to find out! -Celebuzz
  • Watch this, it’s people pogoing on pogo sticks. It’s pretty extreme. I swear! -TheDailyWhat
