->''"So, how could we describe the average Pajiba reader? I dunno. I doubt you could distill it, but I'd say: Well-educated, liberal leaning, well-read, cynical smaller-budget movie fans that really donít care for ''TheHumanCentipede'' and are very judgmental. How's that for a target audience?"''
-->-- '''Dustin Rowles''', Pajiba publisher and writer

[[http://www.pajiba.com/ Pajiba]] is a movie, TV, and book review website that prides itself on its [[DeadpanSnarker snark]]. It has a small, but growing and very devoted readership.

The regular commenters are referred to as the Eloquents. [[http://www.pajiba.com/guides/the-official-pajiba-dictionary.php The Official Pajiba Dictionary]] defines them as, "...Pajiba contributors, link-whores and commenters in mass. Semi-ironic given the -- ''ahem'' -- quality of commentary. Yet, an exalted state. If you have to ask whether you're one of the Eloquents, you aren't." The last part there may indicate a cliquey sort of vibe, but don't be fooled. Though very tight-knit and heavily-laden with in-jokes, new voices are definitely encouraged and welcome.

Among its various reviews, Pajiba also has several features including [[http://www.pajiba.com/guides/ Pajiba's Guide to What's Good for You]],[[http://www.pajiba.com/seriously_random_lists/ Seriously Random Lists]] and The Weekly Murdertank. There is also a daily linkspam post called Pajiba Love which usually consists of a mix of celebrity gossip and articles about assorted hoo-hah and usually concludes with a funny video clip.

According to the site, the name is pronounced "like a part of the female anatomy, if you have a bit of a cold, which makes it an awfully enjoyable word to say."

!! This website provides examples of:

* ADateWithRosiePalms: Writer and commenter alike will commonly say, "I'll be in the my bunk" when talking about attractive actors and celebrities.
* CausticCritic: The stated tone of the site ("Scathing Reviews, Bitchy People" is their tagline), though it's really quite a bit more fair than that.
* ClosetKey: Many readers joke that actor RyanReynolds is this for Pajiba writer/publisher Dustin Rowles due to his repeated adoration for Reynolds' abs. In general the site is a very safe place to go if you feel like talking about how you'd go gay for NathanFillion, TinaFey, etc.
