Fugs and Pieces: March 15, 2013


Are you ready for Fug Madness to ROCK YOUR WORLD? Make sure you print out your brackets and get your pools organized! Until tip off, enjoy:

– Another historical grave discovered in — well, UNDER — a parking lot, this time in Scotland. (Time)

– For some reason, I am obsessed with seeing what is inside other people’s fridges. I appreciate Refinery29 for filling this void in my reading this week. (Refiner29)

– A hard-hitting (tee hee) at some of notable baseball players who decided to go cupless and paid for it. With their testicles. (Daily Intelligencer)

– Oh, BIEBER. Don’t throw shade on Lilo’s financial mess. Even if you do delete it later. (Lainey)

– I’m sure you’ve seen High School of Thrones, but if you haven’t, and you love GoT, get over to The Hairpin. (The Hairpin)

– Our brave friends at Vulture put together a complete list of everything Carrie ever “couldn’t help but wonder” on Sex and the City. (Vulture)

– And The Cut on hate-watching street style. (The Cut)

– I am just going to leave you with the headline here. Ahem: Benedict Cumberbatch sings a creepy, sexy song to his Cumberbitches. (Celebitchy)

– Emma Stone is all adorable with Who What Wear. (Who What Wear)

–And Nicki Minaj is secretly really pretty funny when she interviews herself for Elle. (Video! Elle Magazine)

– 25 years ago, the LA Times published a magazine predicting where we would be in 2013.  You need to look at it. Where is my robo-pet?! (LA Times)

    I will save Grantland the trouble – Christian Laettner.

    • spygrl1

      HA, yes Melinda! You and I are soulmates! Laettner Hater 4-eva!

    • annie

      Ha! I was coming here to post that. The best part, is I don’t even follow basketball, and I still know that!

    Cumberbatch singing the song was gorgeous, but I couldn’t help but imagine him joining in on the Misty Mountain song from The Hobbit. (I mean, can you imagine? SIIIIIIIIIIGH. Must listen to the soundtrack again this weekend, I think.)

    Can we please talk about how awesome it is that Duke gets an entire region to itself in that Grantland bracket? Hating Duke: one thing that 99.9% of this deeply polarized country can agree on.

    • Erin

      Sweet fancy Moses, I co-sign with this. I went to NC State, and I think Duke is disliked more than cancer here in NC. Coach K is reviled, and that animosity carries over to the players, who may be perfectly nice kids in real life, but we never want to find out lest our deep-seeded dislike be contradicted. SO happy they didn’t get a #1 seed in the tournament this year.

    Emma Stone really IS super-adorable in that interview. And I think she’s talked me into argan oil.

    Okay, Jessica, if you’re obsessed with other people’s refrigerators, you should take a gander at Other People’s Pantries. I don’t know if this works as a link, but here is a URL: http://www.theperfectpantry.com/other_peoples_pantries/index.html.

    Parking lot skeletons are awesome, but then did you click through to the 600 year-old bra story? Whoa! Nothing new under the sun, people.

    Re: Baseball players who decided to go cupless and paid for it:
    Just goes to show you that men should not play sports. They are too delicate.

  8. Mary Urech Stallings

    Do those people have professional refrigerator cleaners? Because that is unnatural.

    • Emma

      If someone was coming to profile my refrigerator, I’d throw out the bacon, leftover mac and cheese and diet coke, clean it more thoroughly than I ever have in my life, and restock it with yuzu koshu, agrumato, katsuobushi, chlorella powder, furikake, gochujang, ground flax, bee pollen, farro and jook. And I don’t even know what most of these things are.

  9. Emma

    I love that Justin Bieber’s justification for his behaviour was essentially “I’m richer than all of you, so I must be doing okay.” If you’re very quiet, you can still here the echo of a collective groan heard around the world.

  10. Nancy

    I join Justin Beiber in Believing.

    I Believe Justin Beiber should keep his pants up above his ass.

    Thank you.

    Nicki Minaj is secretly pretty hilarious every time I’ve seen her. Of course I don’t watch Idol anymore because, no, but in interviews/talk shows, she’s hysterical.
