Sci-fi scribe Mike Dougherty (X-Men 2) has another skill besides writing: Designing Alien onesies. (Fashionably Geek)
- And the host of the 2014 Tony Awards is… Hugh Jackman. Hugh, I love you, but this is your fourth time. Can Robert Downey Jr not take a crack at it in-character as Tony Stark? It’s in the name. (Entertainment Weekly)
- Ben Wheatley, director of the first two Peter Capaldi episodes of Doctor Who, has some interesting things to say on io9 about the show, including its return to more of a classic Who vibe. As long as there’s no more of that Daleks-having-to-deal-with-stairs stuff.
The world of custom guitars isn’t our normal gig here, but I needed to show this one by Jamie Ghio Sanches and Mike Braunewell (site down at the moment) to you so you can imagine Daenerys jamming on it as she marches on Westeros. (Neatorama)
- The BBC has announced a ban on comedy panel shows—think QI, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, and the like—having exclusively male panelists. Jezebel muses on the extent to which that will help female comedians.
