Legos Have Bloopers, Too

Also in the Afternoon Links: Nicki Minaj is back, Emile Hirsch is skewering Shia LaBeouf’s latest antics, and somebody made the Iron Throne from snow and icicles.

Ever had a dream where you were hanging out in a recording studio with Chris Pratt and Will Arnett and Alison Brie and Morgan Freeman, and they were all goofing around so much, but in the dream you were blind and you were imagining your new celebrity buddies as Lego figurines?

The latest word on Bill Hader’s Stefon appearing on Late Nightvia Seth Meyers: “We do think he’ll turn up eventually.”

Emile Hirsch has his eyes on your #IAMSORRY thing, Shia. Sample tweets, all clumped together: “I AM NOT FAMOUS TO BEGIN WITH. I AM … CONFUSED ABOUT HOW FAMOUS OR NOT FAMOUS I MIGHT POTENTIALLY BE … ANYMORE … IN ALL FAMOUSNESS THOUGH, I LOVE SHIA, WHETHER OR NOT HE’S FAMOUS.”

Nicki’s back. Her third album will be called The Pink Print. It’s a Jay Z reference. You heard of Jay Z?

And hey, why not, a little bonus Lego action: Someone wrote a 900-word one-sentence review of the movie, and someone else Lego-fied all this year’s Best Picture Oscar nominees. (Nebraska wins.)
