The craftsmanship in this Open Thread has been perfected by generations of Malaysian carvers. But it can be yours for only $19.99. Our Overthinkers are standing by.
In theaters, there’s an absolute garbage retelling of The Three Musketeers coming out. If you want slightly more refined fare, try critical darling Martha Marcy May Maylene, which features the youngest Olsen sister (there was a third!) in a starmaking turn. There’s also Margin Call, a thinly dramatized narrative about the unfolding of a credit crisis; I’m genuinely excited about this one.
Music news: we have something old (the Rolling Stones’ 1978 album Some Girls …), something new (… being re-released with a lost track), something borrowed (the title of T-Pain’s newest album, dropping in December: rEVOLVEr) and something blue (Mark Lee, at T-Pain’s professed lack of autotuning on the new joint).
And they gave Kelsey Grammer a TV show again.
