Apparently, when most of us take off for the holidays to hang out with our families, the internet’s cat population takes over. Witness this trailer for the new film “The Dark Knight: Rises” — the latest in the Batman series — as performed by cats. Ironically, incredibly, the role of Catwoman (as played in the actual movie by Anne Hathaway) is played by a dog. [Comic Book Movie]
Callin’ Oates, the Hall and Oates hotline, may change the way I feel about phone calls. In case of a music emergency, dial (719) 26-OATES (62837) for the kind of life-saving, pick-me-up that only Hall and Oates hits can provide. I’m jealous that I didn’t think of this first. [Buzzfeed]
Are you ready for a sadz? Taylor Swift released a song she’s contributed to “The Hunger Games” soundtrack. “Safe and Sound” is a lovely, melancholy one.

Look at that face. How could you not love that face? And yet, poor Siku the polar bear was left to die after his mother was unable to produce enough milk to feed the baby. Thankfully, researchers at Skandinavisk Dyrepark in Djursland, Denmark, have been able to bottle feed the little guy and keep him alive. Three zookeepers keep watch over the baby on a 24-7 cycle, and tend to his every need. Siku’s case became a global sensation after this YouTube video of the roly-poly little guy went viral. Watching it, you can totally see why.
Rihanna channels everybody from Alex in “A Clockwork Orange” to a cane-toting pimp in her new video, “You Da One,” which is all done in black and white. The song is epically meh — her vocal inflections remind of stuff Gwen Stefani was doing 10 years ago. But at least the outfits are cool. What do you think? Keep reading »
Watch Conan O’Brien surprise a staffer with a Jon Hamm sneak attack as a Secret Santa present. All I could think about when I was watching this was, Oh my god, imagine if I worked at Conan … and he was my Secret Santa … I would have been surprised with Ryan Gosling! And then I was sort of sad. Sigh. [Team Coco]
