In an excerpt from the new book What Else Is in the Teaches of Peaches with provocative photos by Holger Talinski (out now from Akashic Books), actress Ellen Page shares just how singer Peaches changed her life, and why, above and beyond the fact that she’s a really great rock icon, that she’s also a great friend! Check out the full letter after the jump.
“I think I was outwardly having more fun. I was more fun to be around, probably. That image that I was casting, to convince people that I was okay, was a really fun person to hang around. Now I have less fun. I focus more. She doesn’t get to cook for me the way she used to.” He laughs. “I was like a great pet fat guy.”
Does she actively complain that you’re less fun?
“No, she understands and she just supports me regardless. I think that part of her is hedging her bets that one day I’ll be fat again, and she’ll say, ‘Remember, honey, I always told you I preferred you this way.’ She’s probably just playing the long game.”
–Chris Pratt on why his wife Anna Farris preferred him when he was a little more fat.

It’s about time Wal-Mart expanded their market out into the METH industry! I mean, judging my the way their customers pick their outfits in the morning, there should be quite the market for it!
A meth lab was discovered in an Indiana Walmart last week and surprisingly, finding meth labs in Wal-Marts is really common. There have been SEVERAL discovered within the past five years in different stores across the country!
In 2011 two people were arrested on separate occasions trying to cook meth in the same Tulsa, Oklahoma, Walmart. Fox 23 reported that a man was caught there in October “with a backpack containing what police called an active meth lab.” Two months later, per Fox 23, police intervened to stop a woman who was trying to cook meth in the store because she couldn’t afford to buy the ingredients and take them home. She was in the store for six hours before getting arrested.
In August of 2011, Nashville City Paper reported that two men were sentenced for trying to cook meth in the back of a pickup truck in the parking lot of an Antioch, Tennessee, Walmart. The meth ingredients in the bed of the pickup truck exploded, drawing police attention to the crime scene.
Cute! I think they’ve really found their niche!
Disney execs are wet with joy after seeing these images of a weasel riding on a woodpecker pop us this week. Yes — a real photo, taken by photographer Martin Le-May in a park in East London. More on the dynamic duo via Slate:
The photographer, Martin Le-May, told me it began when he heard distress calls from the bird, a European green woodpecker, and turned to see it jumping up and down on the ground. These woodpeckers commonly feed on ground-dwelling ants, and the weasel must have initiated a sneak attack. Birds do what birds do, however, and once the bird righted itself it was airborne–but not free. Though weasels are known for their courage and brazenness, I’m not sure this one was prepared for this contingency. Le-May said the pair got about 10 feet off the ground before landing again, where the bird managed to free itself of the weasel and fly off, both creatures apparently unharmed.
