Link roundup

1.  Looks like Redbook ripped off Jen Yates of Cake Wrecks (and other Pinterest users).  (I bet Cake Wrecks will be going strong long after Redbook folds.)

2.  "The Order of the Occult Hand is a whimsical secret society of American journalists who have been able to slip the meaningless and telltale phrase 'It was as if an occult hand had…' in print as a sort of a game and inside joke."  Via.

3.  Road House just got infinitely funnier:

[The Onion Audio Visual Club]: It seems like your sex scene in the film must be one of the most uncomfortable in cinematic history, being up against a rock wall and all.

[Kelly Lynch]: Oh, I know, but I was padded. [Laughs.] No one knows, so it looks more painful that it was. They really liked everything about the way that scene looked, with the blonde hair against the rocks behind me, but I was like, “Isn’t this kind of… mean?” So they put a thin padding under my dress, so you can’t see it. But he’s still slamming me against the rocks, so I had to be careful not to hit my head. Thank God Patrick was so strong. He could’ve carried me around that room forever.

By the way, speaking of Bill Murray, every time Road House is on and he or one of his idiot brothers are watching TV—and they’re always watching TV—one of them calls my husband and says [In a reasonable approximation of Carl Spackler], “Kelly’s having sex with Patrick Swayze right now. They’re doing it. He’s throwing her against the rocks.” [Away from the receiver.] What? Oh, my God. Mitch was just walking out the door to the set, and he said that Bill once called him from Russia.

AVC: Sorry, not to dwell on this, but you said that Bill Murray “or one of his idiot brothers” will call. Which brothers are we talking about? 
KL: All of them! Joel has called; Brian Doyle has called. They will all call! Any and all of them! 
AVC: This was already an awesome story, but now it’s even better. 
KL: I know, right? I dread it. If I know it’s coming on—and I can tell when it’s coming on, because it blows up on Twitter when it is—I’m just like, “Oh, my God…” And God help me when AMC’s doing their Road House marathon, because I know the phone is just going to keep ringing. It doesn’t matter if it’s 2 or 3 in morning. “Hi, Kelly’s having sex with Patrick Swayze right now…”

4. James Cameron's Titanic as a secret prequel to Terminator.
