Thor, Gale, Meryl Streep, and Tom Hanks Star In the Epic, The Groundbreaking… Bitman Begins

Jimmy Kimmel, as is his wont, took to his late night show to have some post-Oscar fun. This year he enlisted the help of celebrities to dramatize that most enduring, most highbrow of subjects: The Internet meme. There’s David After Dentist (starring Joseph Gordon Levitt), Ain’t nobody got time for that (with Queen Latifah), and …I don’t want to ruin it, but Gary Oldman is there.

But Bitman Begins is our favorite, because superheroes. Hit the jump for a behind-the-scenes video in which Meryl Streep talks working with the Hemsworth brothers.

Update: YouTube appears to be giving some people trouble. Sorry if you’re affected. Hopefully everything will be back to normal soon.

Waste Time At Work With Google’s Interactive Doctor Who Doodle

I mean don’t waste time at work. Clearly you would never do that. That is Bad.

For some reason this interactive Google Doodle isn’t showing up on regular old google.com yet—maybe because it’s not the 23rd in the States yet? You can get around that by going to the French version of Google. Or, for the non-video game inclined, you can see in the video above what Google came up with. But the video misses out on the best part: If you die, you do indeed regenerate into the next Doctor.

Photographer Claims Heroes of Cosplay Used Photos Without Permission, Blamed Cosplayers

Syfy’s Heroes of Cosplay hasn’t been winning over many hearts and minds, so far as I can tell, having never watched the show and having a limited window into the cosplay community itself. But now one photographer is trying to get the company to admit that they used his photos without permission and against copyright law.

It Wasn’t Hacked, You Weren’t Crazy: Tumblr Got a Little Weird Last Night

The great amalgamated beast that is Tumblr shivered in its sleep last night, but did the shaking of its mighty rainbow tinted hackles cause the strange reblogs and seemingly permanent posts that plagued many users, or did the creature’s stirrings merely communicate the terror of its userbase? Do past and future, nay, causality itself even have an effect on the slumbering giant that scientists have determined is clearly, but inexplicably, Tumblr’s physical avatar on the material plane, manifest in deep inside a cave on the outskirts of a small desert town?

Have I been listening to to much Welcome to Night Vale? I mean, yes, but lets talk about what happened on Tumblr last night.
