Tales of the Supernatural

Meet Neville, the latest addition to our furry family, join in a really good discussion we’ve been having about race on TVD, find out who Carina’s favorite ship is (hint: just shut up and enjoy the show!), watch Team Elena eviscerate each other on Fangbook, and lose all hope that the new Beauty and the Beast show won’t be terrible.

Follow the Mystic Falls gang on Fangbook

At least one new Beauty and the Beast show will probably suck

Trailers

Lots of good trailers this weel. Chronicle is the one I’m probably the most excited about, Alan Ball is back to tease us with the idea of a watchable season of True Blood, and Game of Shadows promises to melt out faces off with awesome.

Computers and Technology

Amazon is taking over the world and Netflix is doing its best to go out of business.

Netflix is pretty sure it has no future in DVDs

Holy Shit it’s Twilight week

Twilight: Braking Dawn Part One: Distilled: My recap.

Entertainment OCD’s review of Breaking Dawn: A pros and cons list.

Bill Condon reveals Breaking Dawn spoilers: The big news is that the second movie will (apparently) diverge greatly from the book. This can only be a good thing.

Bill Condon on why Breaking Dawn is uniquely female horror: “So is Bella a good role model for young women?” “Um…”

How I learned to stop worrying and love the RPatz: “The longer the series goes on, and the fewer possible repercussions, the more sh*t he talks. I’m convinced that no one hates Twilight as much as Robert Pattinson…”

The 25 most disturbing Twilight products: This list fails because it doesn’t include the sparkling dildo that comes with a suggestion to put it in the refrigerator for that “authentic Cullen experience”.

Kristen Stewart offered lead in American Akira: Jesus, I’m going to go hide in my basement while the riots die down.

Pop Culture

The Top Three Moments of Season Three (So Far): I wrote a guest post for Vampire-Diaries.net.

NBC orders a pilot for The Munsters: I loved this show when i was a kid. I hope they don’t feel the need to make it all dark and gritty.

ABC to air a TV show set in the Avengers universe: It’s called AKA Jennifer Jones, and is about a retired superhero that runs a private investigation agency.

First trailer for Pixar’s Brave: The Lady and I will be there opening night.

Mirror, Mirror trailer: I vastly prefer the look of the other Snow White movie they’re making right now.

Sneak peak at The Woman in Black: This looks fantastic.

Syfy greenlights Booster Gold: I really like this character, so I’m hoping the show works out.

Awesome

This dude makes samurai swords the old fashioned way: I would love to own one of these.

Watch a real-life Street Fighter destroy a car with his bare hands: Well god damn.

Amazon review of pepper spray: “Even the mighty First Amendment doesn’t stand a chance against its many scovil units of civil rights suppression.”

Science and Technology

New data confirms neutrinos traveling faster than light: We (and by we I mean “me and a bunch of people who are smart enough to have an actual opinion on this”) is still skeptical, because this is a bold damn claim, and a bold damn claim requires astonishing damn evidence, but… wow. Just wow. We might be watching a revolution in our basic understanding of the universe happening in real time.

Politics and Religion

Occupy DC sends a budget proposal to the Super Committee: Rumor has it the Super Committee replied “thanks, but we’re busy fucking America. Come back in January.” (via Brian in Shortsville)

Obama should abandon reelection bid, turn the whole thing over to Hillary Clinton: I agree completely. Obama has been really good at caving in to the Republicans, and not much else. Hillary with bitch-slap some sense back into the shitheads currently fucking things up in Congress.

Scott Adams is running for President: “So, as President, I would appoint ex-President Bill Clinton as my only advisor … and I’d pretty much do whatever he told me to do.” And with that sentence, he has my vote.

This Week on the Web brings you The Evil Blood Sluts, love interests for Alaric and Bonnie (not each other, you sickos), the story of a man and his buffalo, Barnes & Noble telling Microsoft to fuck off, and Michele Bachmann telling you what Jesus would do: let your lazy ass starve.
