Cocktails and Dinosaurs: News and Libations for the Weekend of March 15, 2013

Semi weekly posts you waited nearly half a year to come back.  Maybe this time you'll leave comments!

Tom Hardy Huddling with His Puppy

According to ecorazzi, Tom Hardy is in New York City shooting, Animal Rescue.  Can this movie please just be 120 minutes of Tom Hardy snuggling a pit bull puppy?  Actually, the perfect movie would be him snuggling a pit bull puppy, then drunk Nick Nolte, then back to the pit bull puppy.

  • While we're on the topic of dog actors, Lizzy, an adorable Corgi pouch, got fired from The Audience, a play she was starring in with Dame Helen Mirren*.  Lizzy apparently refused to "obey" Dame Mirren's commands.  Sources say Mirren took issue with Lizzy improvising during scripted scene. (via The Telegraph)
    *Helen Mirren, best known for her portrayal as Mrs. Tingle in Teaching Mrs. Tingle.

  • Veronica Mars... wait for it... THE MOVIE!!!!  Holy Shit!  I never thought this day would come.  They have a Kickstarter and a video that makes me want to watch the entire series right now (which I am watching while blogging).  Oh yeah and they're going to start filming this summer.  I heard a rumor** that if they can collect $4 mil, Ken Marino is a definite!  Can you live in a Veronica Mars world without Ken Marino?  Neither can I!!!
    **When I say rumor, that means I made that up, but the internet can pressure Ken Marino if he's not already involved!  We can make this happen!!
  • Are there visions of Armageddon 2:  Apocalyptic Boogaloo break dancing in my head or is that just Steve Tyler talking about writing a song with Taylor Swift? (via jezebel)
  • Have you ever wondered why Die Hard with a Vengeance broke the Christmas theme in Die Hard?  It almost doesn't feel like a Die Hard movie at all to be honest except for the brother of Hans Gruber seeking revenge on McClane part.  Is it possible that the rumors about Die Hard 3 starting out as Lethal Weapon 4 are true?  Close... but if you want to know the truth read on.  (via
  • Do you know about JASH yet?  I mean you should know about JASH by now, it's the future of the internet, it's the new internet, it's going to make everyone whose reality is partially based in online life a lot better quality-wise.  Let's all send thank you letters to Sarah Silverman, Michael Cera, Tim & Eric, and Reggie Watt.  When I say thank you letters, I mean snail mail on personalize stationary with cute stickers on the envelope because these people care about us.  The Youtube we knew is gone, embrace JASH! (via The Daily What)
  • Remember the Mark McGrath and Friends Cruise!  Essentially every band that didn't survive the 90's... right? There might be a couple more.  So that got cancelled and right now I am laughing hysterically at Mark McGrath's tweet about "that poop cruise" doing them no favors. (via BrooklynVegan)
  • Justin Timberlake sung and danced his way into the hearts of every vegan with one skit on Saturday Night Live:

Cocktail of the Week:  Hot Toddy

There are too many recipes for a hot toddy on the interwebs.  The essentials are whiskey, hot water, honey (aka agave nectar or bee-free honee), and lemon.  Wild cards include tea, cloves, cinnamon sticks, etc.  When it comes to cocktails, just add what you like.  If you enjoy it, that's all that matters.  My recipe above included agave nectar, lemon juice, whiskey, a lemon slice with whole cloves, and hot water.

Email that crap out of us @ monicatara[at]  Or just comment here!  We love you and we want feedback and cocktail ideas!
