Tumblr Watch: Awesome People Hanging Out Together

What Is It?: In the photo above you have Bob Marley, Mick Jagger and Peter Tosh just hanging out. In the photo below we see Roald Dahl and Ernest Hemingway having a stroll in 1944 London.

If you haven’t noticed we’re slightly addicted to candid photographs of celebrities being regular people or hamming it up on the fly. Tabloid pics do not count.

Hopefully this new Tumblr will feed our interests for a while.

This is Halloween: Pumpkins of Interest

A quick and dirty post for the day.

Jack’s Lantern
Here are MedicMike and Jen’s pumpkins. The backstory: these jack-o-lanterns represent their huskies, Katie and Jack. Jen carved them up. The pumpkin not the dogs.

Wherein Stephen Fry Puts Pedants in Their Place and We Love Him for It

“Do they ever yoke impossible words together for the sound-sex of it?” –Stephen Fry

We don’t believe they do, Mr Fry. Our knowledge of the execution of the written word is strong but not entirely kingly. We know there are places we could do better in being more “grammatically correct.” But, more often than not, we damn those ways in order to find new ways.

We are not immune to pedantic qualities that live inside. We typically try to limit the chastising to our own incorrect usage.

But now, most importantly, when friends turn up their noses and snidely accuse us of killing the English language, we no longer choose to smile and ignore their immovable imaginations.

Now we will simply state, ‘Stephen Fry says you can kindly ‘fuck off’ with that.’

After Being Knighted, Terry Pratchett Created a ‘Thunderbolt Iron’ Sword

Add this to the list of things that makes Terry Pratchett an incredible, awesome man.

Pratchett, believing the sword would not truly be his own unless it was made from metal he had produced, found a field with deposits of iron ore near his home in Wiltshire, west of London.

He gathered the deposits and smelted the iron ore himself.
[…]
Pratchett, who has Alzheimer’s disease, also said he had thrown in “several pieces of meteorites — thunderbolt iron, you see — highly magical, you’ve got to chuck that stuff in whether you believe in it or not“.

Check out the sword below the cut.

Sundance gets Access to One Last Shot

Last year it was that “What’s Your Crime?” bit. This year, it’s polaroids of celebrities.


“I forgot to bring my deodorant, so I’ve been checking all day to make sure I’m not too offensive!”
-Transsiberian star Emily Mortimer on forgetting to bring one of the must-have items for a grueling day of press interviews.

“I’m trying to keep it all inside, but I could not be happier!”
-Colin Hanks to reporters at the premiere of The Great Buck Howard, which was produced by his famous father, Tom.

I’m not as amused as I was with last year’s scheme, but professional photos of “celebrities” always tends to draw my eye.

UPDATE: more Sundance polaroids
