Slow Adventures in Slothville

Morning Things

I hope you all enjoyed your family/turkey/charades time. Oh, just me with the charades? No, I don’t believe that. Welcome back to your jobs! To take the edge off, here is a round-up of interesting things I encountered on the internet this morning.

Joaquin Phoenix is an entertaining fuck-up.

You’ve probably already read this, but I had to post it anyway. I love that all the prissy goss columns started questioning Joaquin’s sanity after he got distracted by an invisible amphibian on the “Walk the Line” red carpet.

From Yahoo News via Defamer:

Out of the blue, Phoenix suddenly changed the subject, asking, “Do I have a large frog in my hair?”

Reporter: No, no.

Phoenix: “Something’s crawling out of my scalp.”

Reporter: No, you look great.

Phoenix: “No, but I feel it. I’m not worried about the looks. I’m worried about the sensation of my brain being eaten. … What did you ask me?”

So now he’s had to put all these rumors of drug use and insanity to rest. Which is silly, really, because we all know he’s a raging vegan lunatic with a chip on his shoulder and I don’t think any of us have a problem with that. A show of hands. Anyone? Anyone? Didn’t think so.

Next up: This post on CuteOverload made me Google “Coot Feet” because what the eff are those things under the water???

Turns out coots have krazy lobed feet which are muy coolio.

Check out the talons at the end, too. Eep!

The Fug Girls hate this dress:

And while I’ll admit it’s unconventional and a bit loud and is not in any way helped by those bubblegum shoes peeking out below, I’m sort of loving this dress. Does this mean I’m contracting the fug? I don’t know. I’m putting myself on fug watch until further notice.

And finally, your random cool thing of the week via Boing Boing: Rusty Angler Fish





  1. We played charades, too.

  2. Joaquin Phoenix survives the frog attack but River croaks at the Viper Room.

    The wrong brother died.

  3. Vipers are way more dangerous than frogs.

  4. Not those cute brightly colored frogs, they’re deadly!

    That dress reminds me of the Technicolor Dreamcoat.

    That is a very cool angler fish.
