This Week on the Web brings you more of our wedding photos, how PayPal stole Christmas, a bunch of Top Three moments of TVD Season Three (they’re all wrong of course, because internet), the trailer for Joss Whedon’s Cabin in the Woods, a fifteen inch MacBook Air, the Obamacare Bomb, and more!
Shameless Self Promotion
Pagan weddings and unholy dance parties: The Lady’s continuing expose on our (quite fabulous) wedding festivities.
You’re A Mean One, Mister Grinch
How PayPal stole Christmas: Well, that settles it. My plan to integrate PayPal into my web site? Canceled. Update: PayPal claims to have released the funds to Regretsy. Not sure if this satisfies me or not. Update: Never mind, from what I hear on The Twitters, PayPal are still being shits about this whole thing.
Erin Frazee’s top three moments of TVD Season Three: Erin is a regular in the recap roundup, and her top three moments are filled with unicorns. Yes, unicorns.
Kristen and David’s top three moments of TVD Season Three: A special video installment.
Jessica Rae’s top three moments of TVD Season Three: Vampire Barbie FTW
French couple in court for naming their son after Damon Salvatore: Okay, there are two pieces of stupid going on here. One is naming our kid after your favorite vampire. Another is the fucking government worrying that this kid’s name will make him the fucking antichrist.
Bryan Singer to Direct, Executive Produce Munsters Reboot: An “edgier and slightly darker take exploring origins of Herman and Lily Munster…” Sigh.
Sara Canning gets to date Dean Winchester: That’ll teach you to murder her character.
Helena Bonham Carter: no one is going to know what the fuck Dark Shadows is about: “It’s a soap opera, but it’s very, very subtle. I don’t know. We’ll see. It’s a ghost story, but then it’s an unhappy vampire story.”
Live action Catwoman fight scene: a fan film inspired by Arkham City.
Cabin in the Woods trailer: Joss Whedon = my ass in a seat.
Computers and Technology
The promise of the 15-inch Macbook Air: Want. So. Bad. I need to write more books so I can afford all of the things.
Kindle Fire v Nook Tablet: which should you buy: A pretty detailed comparison that will help you make an informed choice.
Nook Tablet fastest selling Nook in history: Also of interest (to me, anyway) is that sales of nook products (eReaders, tablets, and digital content) increased 85% in just three months. Digital books are the wave of the future, friends. Also also: B&N is still operating in the red, but they’re working their way back to profitability. I think by this time next year, they’ll be back in the black.
Kidnapper sues victims for escaping: The fact that these people had to hire a lawyer to deal with this is a travesty.
Comment of the week: On Slashdot, this is what the scientific method is all about.
Politics and Religion
Why you shouldn’t donate to the Salvation Army: Religious charities: just say no.
The Obamacare Bomb goes off today: Because this is good for the middle class, the insurance companies are of course livid about it. On the other hand, fuck them, right?
