Morning Meme: “Glee” Addresses the Pink Elephant, Taylor Lautner’s Abs Don’t Come Cheap, and “Law & Order: UK” Slang Primer

There are huge spoilers about Glee’s
Super Bowl episode in this post concerning Sue Sylvester. But just how big and
flashy is the episode? According to Chris
Colfer
, “It’s by far the most expensive episode we’ve ever done. There was
one scene where they were filming and they had two ambulances on standby, which
is two more ambulances than they usually have. It’s a big one.”

Meanwhile, this post about Glee
has Darren Criss addressing the
future of Blaine and Kurt “We’re definitely going to start seeing some layers
to the two of them. The pink elephant in the room will finally be addressed,
let’s put it that way.”

The real Being Human,
the one with Russell Tovey, is set to hit the air for its third season in the UK January 23rd.
Which may not bode well for those with access to both the original and the
American series. Unfortunate comparisons may be made.

This is a mildly NSFW post of 25
Offputting Male Strippers
. Some of them are a matter of taste.

Falling into the totally NSFW category is
this music video
from Casey Spooner,
with additional vocals by Scissor Sisters’
Jake Shears called “Spanish
Teenager.”

Dreamworks is set to make an animated, Bollywood-style musical inspired by the epic poem
The Ramayana, titled
Monkeys of Bollywood.
The people behind the scenes are impressive, with
A.R. Rahman of Slumdog Millionaire composing, Wicked lyricist Stephen Schwartz, and Gurinder Chadha from Bend It Like Beckham producing. So I’m
looking forward to this for all that. Plus, I like monkeys.

Zac Efron has packed on 18 pounds of muscle for his new role. And he’s
packed it on in all the right places.

A bill introduced in Wyoming would require counseling in order to get married, and
counseling to get divorced. Somehow, this amuses me, since it’s more inline
with protecting marriage than telling me I can’t.

Taylor Lautner has
yet to open a movie on his own, but Hollywood has decided his 18-year-old abs are worthy of joining the eight-figure salary club.

The pope insists that the children you have inside a
marriage, because you aren’t using condoms, be
given Christian names
.

If you’re going to Slamdance, be sure to check out Tom
Lenk’s
short film.

John Cameron Mitchell
is over gay culture. This quote kind of makes me over John
Cameron Mitchell, since he made his name out of depicting a heightened version
of gay culture.

Big Bang Theory
got renewed for three years. CBS is having to shell out roughly $260 million to keep the
nerds on television.

Lemurs, outside of the movies Madagascar, may actually have a culture.

Maryland is set to move dramatically on equal rights for gays and lesbians,
probably including marriage. And it looks like New Hampshire won’t try and move dramatically backwards on gay rights.

Forbes thinks it’s
possible that Lady Gaga can earn over $100 million in 2011. They don’t seem to
speculate on how much of that she actually gets to pocket though.

Speaking of money, a new study says that people who are out earn a lot more money than people who are closeted. I’m not
sure how you study people who are closeted, since by definition, they’re
closeted.

Is Showtime thinking about a docuseries about the San Francisco Giants?
And will Brian “The Beard” Wilson
and his buddy The Machine feature
prominently? Enquiring minds want to know.

Brett Claywell
proudly announced that after six years of work he had gotten STIKS
off the ground. Of course, he failed to mention what STIKS was, but this handy article tells me it was a video game tournament
for celebrities, and was attended by some seriously heavy hitters, from Snoop Dogg to Zac Efron to yes, Scott
Evans
.

Meanwhile, his old boss at One Life To Live, Frank
Valenti
gets to keep his job.

WikiLeaks founder Julian
Assange
says that his “insurance files” contain blockbuster cables,
including secrets about Rupert Murdoch
and News Corp.

Tuesday night boxing drama Lights Out premiered on FX to less-than-stellar ratings. Which is a
shame, because it was pretty good. And star Holt McCallany’s bare backside made a glorious appearance as well.

They’re going to remake Thunderbirds.
And not in the Team America way.

Sebastian Stan says that he really likes playing Bucky in Captain America: First Avenger. And it’s
even better because the roles reverse once puny Steve Rodgers becomes super
soldier Captain America.

Glenn Beck gave his total endorsement to Spider Man: Turn Off the Dark. He says it’s better than Wicked.
I’m not sure what to think.
