NO MAN’S SKY (Honest Game Trailers)

What I’m Into Recently: Jimmy Fallon, Million-Dollar Chocolate Bar, Voluspa Goji & Tarocco Orange candle

Nicole Kidman informing Jimmy Fallon that she was into him that one time she visited him apartment is one of the most adorable things I’ve seen in weeks.

Barton’s Milk Chocolate Million-Dollar Bar. How adorable is this?? A sweets shop just opened close to where I work, and while I rarely eat candy, I did of course check out their chocolate selection and found this. How Willy-Wonka is this? Unfortunately the quality of the chocolate isn’t great, but this is a great stocking stuffer or fun/prank gift. I can tell you, some small part of me expected to find a Golden Ticket in this as I unwrapped it. Never stop living in dreams, kids. Note: you can buy these at World Market.

Voluspa Goji & Tarocco Orange candle. Have I mentioned before how obsessed with Anthropologie’s Voluspa candles I am? It’s really really hard to find candles that are long-burning and have a strong, lasting scent, but these are scent magic, the perfect candle. I gravitate toward citrus scents in all candles and perfume so it’s no surprise that my favorite is the Voluspa Goji & Tarocco Orange with notes of goji berry, ripe mango and tarocco orange. It’s an incredibly deep, rich, sweet-but-not-too-sweet, heavenly smell. These also burn forever and the scent, while not overwhelming, distinctively floats over the entire space, unlike every other candle brand I’ve ever tried (Luminesccence which Sears sells comes in second, but has a much more bland scent range).

And finally, this music video for Kdrama Pinocchio is gorgeously romantic.

 

Pop Culture Love Letter: Star Trek and Sherlock Gag Reels, Gilmore Girls Debut, Say No to Cable Packages and Just Get HBO

Netflix has announced that all nine seasons of Gilmore Girls will debut October 1, and the Internet went crazy. Buzzfeed has the best Twitter reactions.

Time Warner is finally weakening and considering setting HBO and Showtime loose to offer stand-alone service to consumers instead of us having to shell out $$$ for a hundred channels we never watch.

Mindy Kaling posted the best teaser yet for The Mindy Project season 3 – this ably captures the series’ comic vibe, and if you’re not watching TMP yet, is the only one I’ve seen that will likely convince you to try it.

Sherlock released a short blooper reel and it is gold.

A full gag reel for Star Trek Into Darkness popped up, much longer and therefore better.

Honest Trailers – Captain America: The Winter Soldier

An unusually good Honest Trailer, because he admits straight-up it’s an awesome movie…and then manages to hilariously make fun of it anyway.

Caffeinated Links: Louis-Dreyfuss and Seinfeld Sing, Eating Well on $35/Week, Leaf Art

Omid Asadi makes the most exquisite hand-cut leaf art.

Stephen Colbert has a hilarious take on the Orlando Bloom/Justin Bieber spat. This is real news, folks. And Mashable has all the funniest Twitter responses.

The manga Soul Reviver, which is about two soul revivers who have the ability to move between the worlds of the living and the dead and to bring certain people back whose mission on Earth was not complete at the time of their demise, is coming to Hollywood as a live action movie. I am excited. RT

Lifehacker is running an experiment on eating well on only $35 a week. It’s fascinating and important. RT

Really gorgeous cover of Sam Smith’s “Stay with Me” by, of all people, Vin Diesel (love that man. Is there nothing he can’t do?). The actor’s voice is surprisingly deep-timbred and he gives it a sexy, rich depth.

How did I miss this at the time? Oh right…I was living in a third-world country. Julia Louis-Dreyfuss and Seinfeld reunite to sing The Sound of Music. It’s perfection. Also, they have incredible chemistry.

Andrew Garfield & Emma Stone ‘Spider-Man’s Junk’ Australian TV

Completely adorable StoneField interview in which Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone field questions on Andrew’s “package”, kissing too much in the movie, and Emma’s Spice Girls obsession.

All the Videos You Need Today: Joel McHale, Lea Michele, Annie Trailer, Transformers Age of Extinction Trailer

Joel McHale parodies True Detective on his show The Soup and it’s pure and fantastic (and you don’t have to have seen True Detective to get the parody)

This looks oddly, bizarrely…perfect

Caffeinated Links: Paul Rudd’s Epic Tonight Show, Rise of Kdramas and Veronica Mars

This shot to INSTANT lip-sync hall of fame. If you haven’t watched it yet, what are you doing with your life?

The Wall Street Journal on Veronica Mars‘ innovation – “On television, Veronica Mars was a gritty teenage private investigator who wasn’t afraid to break down doors. Now a movie version of the show is about to do the same thing.

“Veronica Mars” will be released by Time Warner Inc.’s Warner Bros. in about 270 theaters on March 14, the same day that it is available to buy or rent online. It will mark the first time one of Hollywood’s six major studios has distributed a movie in theaters and for home viewing at the same time in the U.S.”  RT

The Millions on saving “like”s linguistic reputation – “Where some traditionalists see the use of “like” as a dialog tag as portent of cultural End Times, D’Arcy views it as an important tool for self-expression, allowing speakers to narrate their interior thought processes in dramatic and easily accessible ways.” RT

PRI’s The World on how your next big, addictive TV show could be from Korea. “Last fall, one of South Korea’s leading production companies joined forces with DramaFever to produce their first original series, “Heirs” — already a fan-favorite with 17 million views in just the first three months. The story is about privileged high school students and was filmed largely in California.” RT

Lucy Schwartz, one of my very favorite singer-songwriters, crafted a gorgeous, aching ballad of pain and longing for the TV show Nashville.
