  1. In Continuing Quest to Stay Relevant, Facebook Adds “Buy” and “Save” Buttons

    Add a "cute puppy gif" button and maybe I'd start using Facebook again.

    Facebook is testing some features that it knows will actually get you to start using your account again: "buy" and "save for later" butto—ZZZZZZZZ.

  2. Mondo Is Doing Toys Now, and Holy Christ, Look at This Iron Giant Figure

    Suuupeerrrrmaaaaan. *ugly sobbing*

    Mondo, of truly excellent poster fame, is branching out into the toy market. And I really hope their toys sell out as quickly as their posters tend to, because otherwise my wallet's going to be taking a major hit.

  3. Watch the First Two Trailers for Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing in The Imitation Game

    Kleenex at the ready.

    Benedict Cumberbatch's previous "Look, ma! I'm playing a tech history icon!" movie, WikiLeaks docudrama The Fifth Estate, crashed and burned both critically and commercially, so here's hoping his Alan Turing biopic The Imitation Game does better. There's certainly no shortage of talent on display in the trailers (US above, UK behind the cut).

  4. Another Day, Another Interview Where Sophie Turner Says Great Things About Game of Thrones‘ Sansa Stark

    Lemon cakes for everyone!

    Things I love about Game of Thrones: The theme song. The drama. Stannis Baratheon (come on, you saw that coming). The way Sophie Turner will go all mama bear on Sansa Stark at the drop of a hat. I like to think when baristas ask for her name at Starbucks, she says "Sophie. But I play a character named Sansa. And, you know, Sansa is awesome because..." And the barista just stands there, transfixed, because you know what? Sansa is awesome. And she does get too much hate.

  6. The Wil Wheaton Project Reimagines True Blood As Cheers, Which Never Did Have Enough Weird Sex

    “Sometimes you wanna bang where all the sex is really strange.”

    The Wil Wheaton Project needs to follow up this True Blood/Cheers credits mashup by kidnapping grammar enthusiast Kelsey Grammer for a webseries where Dr. Frasier Crane retires to Bon Temps and has all sorts of weird sex with werepanthers. Or maybe they can leave out that last part. But someone has to write the fanfic.

  7. MTV Greenlights Their Shannara Season, Taps This Summer’s TMNT Reboot Director to Exec Produce

    Shannabunga!

    "Oh, cool, that Shannara series MTV was considering got picked up. Not a lot of info yet... wait, who'd they get to run this thing?" It's not the Transformers: Age of Extinction writer co-producing a live-action Dumbo movie, but it's weird. (Yes, I know the pic I used is from the Shannara computer game, not one of the books, but it speaks to me on a deep emotional level.)

  9. HBO Execs Talk Game of Thrones (Not) Catching Up With the Books, Whether There’ll Be a Movie

    Such optimism.

    At no point during the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour did any HBO execs mention the possibility of George R.R. Martin dying, which means the man himself didn’t swing down from the ceiling wearing a harness and shouting "F*** YOOOOOOOOU" through a megaphone. I kind of wish they had. That would have been awesome.

  10. Seeing Dawn of the Planet of the Apes This Weekend? Watch This Pug Puppy Version First.

    Why Milk-Bone rocket?

    By most accounts Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, out in theaters today, is a pretty excellent movie—it has a 91% on Rotten Tomatoes. And while I'm thrilled that it's apparently replicated the quality of its predecessor Rise of the Planet of the Apes, I remain skeptical that it can surpass the sheer brilliance of this Pet Collective parody. Two words: Baby. Pug. Two more words: Pug. Stampede. Your move, Matt Reeves.
