Afternoon Links: When Walking Dead Bit Players Attack!
Actress Shannon Richardson (The Walking Dead) has been arrested on charges that she sent ricin-laced threats to President Obama and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Richardson had initially contacted authorities to say that she’d found “suspicious materials” in her fridge and claiming that her husband had sent the letters (“You will have to kill me and my family before you get my guns”; “Anyone who wants to come to my house will get shot in the face”). Well, that’s one way to get your StarMeter to shoot up 6,453% in a week. Probably not the best way, but definitely a way. Stop it, you guys! STOP IT!

You know, that thing where a dude in fetish gear kneels on the ground and Dick Van Dyke trips over him, over and over again?” And other Nine Inch Nails videos that are promotional material for Stefon’s favorite nightclubs.

“Probably ‘Smokin Aces’, because it wasn’t my hair, and it was like, long beautiful hair that I could never grow.” … “Yeah. I take a supplement called Viviscal. And it’s supposed to help speed up your hair growth. And I really think it works, because my beard grows really fast and I have to get a haircut once a week while using it.” —Ask Jeremy Piven Anything About His Hair
