- I’m a huge fan of Lizzy Caplan. Her appearance on Paul F. Tompkins’ web show, where she mimics memes, is just divine. (via HitFix)
- Vulture looks back at NSYNC’s Home for Christmas album. Classic boy band era cheesiness. I’m not ashamed of it.
- David Simon is writing a Pogues musical??! This seems almost too perfect.
- Marc Maron interviewed CM Punk for his WTF Podcast and it was honestly fascinating. Wrestling fan or not, Punk is a good interview.
- Also, read Grantland’s interview with WWE’s Daniel Bryan, if for no other reason than he revels the story behind his amazing beard.
- In the mood for a good cry? Read the New York Times’ year end “The Lives They Loved” feature, where regular folks share stories of their loved ones that passed on this year.
