- Andrew WK and Lil Bub ask people to donate to their local animal shelters this holiday season, via The Frisky. Well, Andrew WK does the asking. Lil Bub mostly licks cookies and makes adorable sounds.
- Wired’s Rhett Allain breaks down how many fish Gollum needs to eat and how he can see in the dark when he’s hanging out underneath the Misty Mountains having quality bonding time with the One Ring.
Tor.com‘s piece on what went into painting the 150-foot-tall The Hobbit poster on the side of a New York City building is a great read for anyone who, like myself, has ever wondered how the heck they make those things.
- Remember McKenna Pope, the 13-year-old girl who petitioned Hasbro for a gender-neutral Easy Bake Oven? Turns out she had a meeting with Hasbro last Monday to discuss her ideas for the toy. Sounds like a marketing ploy on Hasbro’s part, but I can hope some good comes of it, can’t I? (Thanks, tipster Kristina!)
Among the items in this Star Wars collection being sold for $35,000 on Craigslist: A life-size statue of Han Solo in carbonite, a pinball machine, and nearly 100 mint on card vintage action figures. What, no rocket-firing Boba Fett? (via Kotaku)
- Christopher Nolan on a possible Batman cameo in Man of Steel: “I can’t talk about that. You know that.” Alllllrighty then. (via /Film)
