Afternoon Links: Mad Men Meets Daft Punk
There is nothing better than a good mash-up. To paraphrase Gary Busey on The Celebrity Apprentice, who actually doesn’t seem to quite understand what a mash-up is, mash-ups are like life — unpredictable and, you know, full of all different kinds of stuff. So enjoy Ken Cosgrove dancing to Daft Punk (or wait for Daft Punk to remix its own album) and the Coppola version of Arrested Development. (The Gobfather? Too easy?) The more people we can recruit to sit, hunched over their computer screens, and create important works of art, the better.
- “Gob is invited to perform his magic act for a very special audience — actual witches and wizards. As usual, things don’t quite go according to plan. Harry Potter crossover with a few Hellsing [sic] elements as well.” — Arrested Development fan fiction
- Just mentally GIFfing Stan stroking his beard phantom.
- You’d think Spider-Man would be really proficient at anything involving a net.
- Seth Rogen’s cross-joint rolling tutorial is quite untimely, considering how lazy Los Angeles stoners have proven to be.
- Evan Peters joins X-Men: Days of Future Past. Way to corner the formfitting body suit niche, Peters. It’s a very competitive market.
- Game of Thrones’ Daario Naharis (Ed Skrein) moonlights as a rapper.
- There will be a MacGruber 2. When things like this happen, I like to imagine the Johnnie Walker “You Ordered It” ad remixed with sad sighs. It’s MacGruber 2 and you ordered it, stupid.
- It’s hard to understand, but the touch of your hand kan start me krying.
- So I guess television is Steven Soderbergh’s golf course in Florida. The director’s next retirement project is Cinemax’s The Knick, a series set in New York in 1900, starring Clive Owen.
- Keep yelling at that cloud, old man.
