Pop Culture Happenings: "Les Miserables" Music Break-Down and more buzzworthy dumps

Tom Hooper's upcoming "Les Miserables" film adaptation is shaping up to be one of the more interesting musicals to hit the silver screen. Watch the actors and filmmakers discuss how the actors did all of their singing live and how much freedom this gave them. Oh, and Anne Hathaway's number near the end still gives me chills every time I hear it. Christmas cannot come faster.

More pop news for a Friday after the dump.
"Bad Lip Reading" knocks another one out of the park with this "Hunger Games" read, which entertainingly showed me more of the film than I had ever planned on filming. What is it about a simple over-dub that is so funny? It all makes me want to go watch old episodes of "Most Extreme Elimination Challenge."

In my line of work, it is really fun to find and old video that hits you like it's brand-new. Nearly three years ago, Youtube user deanmontrose took the iconic song "Goodbye Horses," made most famous for its use in "Silence of The Lambs," and cut the song into a mashed-up "Silence of The Lambs" video. Pure brilliance.

We are only 23 days away from season 3 of "The Walking Dead" and it is looking like after some rocky bumps in the beginnings of season 2, the show is getting back to that awesome creation the first season gave us. Prison setting, Michionne, The Governor... there is a lot of zombie-killing madness to come, and this full trailer definitely makes me want to read the comics again.

If you haven't read all five "A Song of Fire and Ice" books by G.R.R. Martin, you might want to skip this one, as it is pretty spoiler-heavy. Otherwise, go down memory lane with this introspective on how the Westeros world is oh so cruel and how much we all hate Dorne.

Adam Scott is on quite the roll lately, but it is good to see him pay tribute to his earlier work, as he does in this clip from "Conan." Reminiscing over his work on "Step Brothers," Mr Scott regaled us with a story involving the breakdown and scholarly dissection of "Ice, Ice Baby," which he had to memorize in full for the part.

"In Time" was not that great of a movie, but man did they shove the whole time motif down your throat. Here is a super-cut of all the times they say "time" in the film "In Time," in chronological order. Time for a time out.
