God bless Drew Droege, for his hilarious and completely over-the-top impressions of Chloe Sevigny. Here, Chloe directs us on how to throw the best barbecue in the world, which involves “mung bean fricasse” and “sher-bert,” of course. [YouTube]
It’s not hard to understand why screenwriters love to make the male lead some kind of carpenter or woodworker: its a vaguely “manly” sounding job yet free-spirited and there’s ample opportunity to take their shirts off. I realized this the other night when I saw “Peace, Love & Misunderstanding” and fell head over heels in lust with Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays Catherine Keener’s super-sensitive love interest yet is also a manly-man carpenter. He’s a poor man’s Javier Bardem, but I won’t have to shank Penelope Cruz to get him in bed. Mmm-mmm. You can hammer my nail anytime, Jeffrey. Screw my bolts. Level my 2-x-4. Drill, baby, drill!
Enough with the double entendres. After the jump, eight more hot carpenters of film and television. I’m sure you’ll be impressed with how well they work with their wood. (Sorry.)
Animals are great in that sometimes they help each other out, despite the fact that in different circumstances, they would be at each other’s throats. Take for example this Shar Pei dog named Cleopatra, who was enlisted to help nurse a couple of orphaned tiger cubs at a zoo in Sochi, Russia.

The cubs are two of fewer than 400 known Siberian tigers left in Russia’s wild. [MSNBC]
Homegirls Potato Chips … dream snack status. What do they taste like? All that and a bag of chips. That’s my best effort. It’s Friday. Your turn! And bonus points if you can tell me how Kathy got her leg to do that. [The Clearly Dope]
Much like the hair and costume folks for Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj, the marketing folks for video games know exactly what they’re doing when it comes to getting attention for their product. And as we’ve seen all-too-often with video games, the go-to advertising strategy is sex, sex, more sex, followed by a healthy dollop of sexualized violence against women.
The lastest game raising hackles is “Hitman: Absolution” — specifically, its new trailer, “Attack of The Saints,” which features “sexy dominatrix nuns” getting punched, kicked and shot at by the game’s hitman hero, Agent 47. Keep reading »
