Random Tuesday: Not So Mild Celebrity Obsession, Superhero Origins, Robots on TV & Other Randomosity

I go through these weird and obsessive phases where an author or actor or musician takes up residence in my head and refuses to leave. They normally park right in the middle of my brain for a few weeks before wandering off as randomly as they wandered in, leaving behind an imprint of fannish glee.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about, it's okay. I'm not entire sure what I'm talking about either. Despite that, the actor who has recently taken residence in my brain and set up a semi-permanent shop of crazy is this guy:

It's become a bit of a problem. He's the prime reason I ended up on Tumblr and gifs snuck into my post about readership age and YA. I keep stumbling across Youtube and finding videos and that's a blackhole to nowhere. Next thing you know, it's five days later and you're twitching. 

We even went to see that movie that bombed over the weekend because he was in it and I only giggled hysterically a little bit. The movie was a bit of a mess and all over the place, but he was really good. Then again with him living in my head, I would say that, wouldn't I?

Yes, it's a problem. And now that I've watched too much stuff on Youtube, I've come to the conclusion that he's kind of a strange guy, which probably means he's probably going to stay camped out in prime brainspace for much longer than he should. Because apparently I have a thing for strange people (see ongoing obsession with Misha Collins).

Seriously - this is starting to become a problem. Somebody get me off of Tumblr and Youtube. So in an attempt to not think about that guy for ten or twenty minutes, let's think about other random things.

Like Under Armour creating superhero workout clothes that I desperately want even though my walks around the neighborhood couldn't really be considered "working out". 

Mike Maihack created another Supergirl / Batgirl comic that's adorably appropriate. (Found via TheMarySue.com)

io9 found this website that has some great Halloween costumes that will prevent you from catching hypothermia, unlike anything you'd find from Party City. 

Almost Human's debut got postponed two weeks until November 17, which bums me out a little because that pilot is pretty sweet and I want more Karl Urban right now, thank you.

I still haven't forgiven Cartoon Network for cancelling Young Justice and now all signs point to a cancellation for Beware the Batman. Boooooo Cartoon Network. I want my weekly cartoon Batman! (From io9)

This Ender's Game concept art really belongs on my walls. It's gorgeous.

Speaking of things that belong on my wall, these posters about the origins of some of geekdom's favorite characters. I really wish I'd found out about this Kickstarter when it was still active because I would have thrown money at it. (Found via SoGeekChic.com)

And now I'm going to try to be productive and read some library books. If you have random, link up in the comments to distract me from that guy living inside my head.

I'm never getting anything done again.

Gifs made by Tumblr people like this one. I have no idea how to properly credit Tumblr people. Someone want to give me an edicate lesson?
