Here Are Some Afternoon Links!

  • John C. Reilly is releasing some country songs and you can listen to them over at Stereogum! WHY is he releasing country songs, you’re probably wondering? I don’t know. Because he’s great? Stereogum is written in musical notes and I’m having trouble translating it right now so I have absolutely no idea. JK. It’s written it words. But you’re still going to have to read about it yourself! -Stereogum
  • Emily Nussbaum has a critique of Whitney and 2 Broke Girls in the most current issue of the New Yorker, and it is certainly worth reading if what I just said sounds even slightly interesting to you! It is her first piece since moving there from New York Magazine! Great! -NewYorker
  • To promote the second season of Portlandia, which starts January 6, Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein are going on tour to play music and show SNEAK-PEEK clips from the new season. I like that idea! -IFC
  • Apparently the new Muppet was based on Michael Cera? Of course he was. I love you, Michael Cera! Let’s go on a date! -NYTimes
  • Speaking of muppets, here is Emma Stone on Sesame Street! I know Sesame Street characters aren’t Muppets but GIVE ME A BREAK. Wasn’t it nice to have a segue? Why did you have to ruin it? -SesameStreet
  • Game of Thrones season two is coming.” -This Game of Thrones season two teaser trailer. -Slashfilm
  • The final Drive parody video: Alex Blagg’s Drive-Thru. -FunnyOrDie
  • Sylvester Stallone is teaming up with heavyweight champions Vladimir and Vitali Klitschko to produce a stage musical based on Rocky? I know a kind of annoying popular style choice these days that I never do but that I’ve HEARD of is to end declarative sentences in a question mark, but that is honestly just a question. What? -FilmDrunk
  • Ashton Kutcher bought Demi Moore a car to save their marriage. Demi Moore can probably buy her own car though, I think? Ashton, what are you even doing. -TheSuperficial
  • Uhhhhh here’s kind of a sad, weird news story about a crazy lady who won’t stop leaving peanuts in her neighbor’s yard because she wants to feed the squirrels, and now she’s maybe going to go to jail. Lady! Stop it! -TheDailyWhat
  • Gossip Girl had a 100th episode party over the weekend and I wasn’t invited to it. HELLO? GOSSIP GIRL? Leighton Meester looked pretty. Chuck looked like Chuck. Dan looked like a gross bum. Blake looked naked. -Dlisted
  • Here is LMFAO, whatever that even is, honestly, what is that?, with KEENAN backstage at the AMAs. I know who Keenan is, at least! We all do! -Celebuzz
