Mel Gibson Continues To Peddle His Crazy Like It’s Going Out Of Style

Happy Thursday my beloved Mistresses Of The Dark and Masters Of Suspense. Here’s our first look at Anthony Hopkins as Alfred Hitchcock. It’s. . .jowltastic? Jowlmazing? Jowlmahzing? (Evil Beet)

Let me know whether or not you agree with these 9 Ways Facebook Has Changed Our Lives. Personally, I’m more likely to give people the ol’ thumbs up. (Mental Floss)

Speaking of non-rude hand gestures, apparently today is National High Five Day. I’m pretty sure you can guess who Pop Candy chose to be the day’s patron saint. (Pop Candy)

Me? I’d have gone with the classic:

I’m still not over the Pulitzer Fiction snub from earlier in the week. But I read this list of famous novels that were also snubbed and, well, I guess their doing okay for themselves.

Speaking of out of control madmen, Mel Gibson has been recorded babbling his rage-feuled nonsense again. Must be a Thursday. (FD)

January Jones ate her baby’s placenta. Whoa, Bam-a-lam. Okay, yes fine, many women do this. But should they? (The Skeptical OB)
