After Drake got re-Bar Mitzvah'd in his new music video for "HYFR," some Twitterers are just finding out that he is Jewish. Here's what they think about it. (via Heeb.)
If you've already experienced all 86 minutes of Godfrey Reggio's heady and beautiful 1982 documentary, then you probably either walked away with mind blown or completely nodded off. For the latter, here's a 1552% sped-up version of the film with a new soundtrack.
Smells a lot like "LOTR" but looks damn good. Bella and Thor face off with Charlize Theron's Evil Queen June 1.
Remember when Meg Ryan has that fake orgasm at Katz's Deli in "When Harry Het Sally?" Are you suuuuure you remember it? Because this supercut has the memorable scene interspersed with clips of all sorts of guttural moans and intense proclamations from other films. So watch it already. You won't be sorry.
Type designer Matthew Butterick was put off by the use of Microsoft's Verdana font in "Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol." So he did what any movie fanatic would do: Wrote the director to explain why the use of IKEA's favorite font was an utter failure.
Whole Foods has its Jewish holidays a little mixed up. Or does it?
In preparation for the 75th anniversary of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, publisher HarperCollins is releasing a book with a collection of 100 original never-before-seen illustrations from the author's personal archives. Here are six of them.
Raul Julia's son is producing a film about the Mayans and claims the giant head in this photo is "evidence of a superior civilization unlike any known to have lived on Earth". Apparently Stephen Hawking agrees with him. Bet you really want to watch Indiana Jones 4 again now. (via The Wrap, h/t @vrizov.)
"The big corporations have shit on us long enough, now it's time for me to shit on them."
You may recall that a Michigan woman is suing the distributors of Drive because the film didn't have enough driving in it and because she feels it is anti-semitic. In blog comments he tries to spell out why the film is anti-semitic, including something about a "false racist canard about Jews being a threat to the Christian child." I'm sure his case will go really well. (via the candler blog & Gawker.)
Tupac sex tape story? Check. Picture of smiling Leonard Nimoy to accompany it inline? Check plus.
Alec Baldwin is bailing on tonight's ceremony because Fox put the kibosh on a News Corp. phone hacking joke he made in a pre-taped segment. Baldwin refused to let the segment run without his joke, so Leonard Nimoy will be replacing him. "I understand NewsCorp killing that joke," he tweeted. "If I were enmeshed in a scandal where I hacked phones of families of innocent crime victims purely 4 profit, I'd want that 2 go away, 2." Looks like he got a nice zinger in there anyway. Touche.

Rod and Ricky, two puppets featured in the Broadway musical Avenue Q, tied the knot in front of New York City Hall today, making them one of the first same-sex couples in New York to be wed. Obviously the day is full of fabulous nuptials, but this one may well take the cake. Mazel Tov! (via.)
Turkish airline Pegasus wins the award for cutest in-flight safety video. Watch as kids go through the motions of explaining what to do in the event of emergency. Also, don't miss the pilot, who has seen his fair share of dirty diapers from here to Istanbul, if you know what I'm sayin.
