Nearly half of Americans (47%) say they think of Fox News as “mostly...– I’m going to have to assume that the 14% that think Fox News is liberal have either confused it for the Fox Television Network, are Nazis, or are deaf, dumb and blind like Helen Keller or The Who’s Tommy. Via
Sure last night’s Top Chef was good, but someone better tell Natalie Portman and Padma to tone down the blow job humor.
If you’re plotting a murder over GChat make sure you change your settings to “off the record.”

Umm, Sign Me Up For This
From today’s Tasting Table e-mail about the new Happy Hour at the Hollywood Umami Burger: But the new Smashburger, served only at the bar for happy hour (daily from 3 to 7 p.m.), is the reason to go. It’s a classic diner-style burger with an Umami twist. As at the Midwestern chain Steak ‘n Shake (and NYC’s Shake Shack), the cooks use a spatula to smash a freshly ground...

It’s criminal that The Oaks’ Grilled Cheese Night didn’t make this list. Sorry Grilled Cheese Truck you were good but The Oaks was way better.

While I’ve never thought of it before Jarvis would actually make a pretty great yoga instructor.

I noticed the wall this morning during my walk to the gym. Had I known what this wall actually was I would have stopped and looked. Oh well, now I another excuse for how to procrastinate today.

People.co.uk - Pulp may reform for Glasto 2010 →
Okay, Jarvis’ quote seems to be taken out of context, but if Pulp and Pavement were to both reunite in 2010 my head might explode with excitement.
There is now a Dunkin’ Donuts on Paris Square adjacent to the Brandenburg...– From Thomas Friedman’s Op-Ed So wait, you’re telling me that the former site of the Berlin Wall gets a Dunkin’ Donuts but us folks in California are shit out of luck? If we tear down the mall at Hollywood and Highland can we get a Dunkin’ Donuts?

There is currently no comment from the Land Of Pencil Sketch Animation. We can only assume that the citizens of that parallel reality are currently in mourning.
I’m not ready to live in a world where Shelly Long gets cast as a grandma.

Fugitive gives the game away with Facebook updates →
“He also added a former US justice department official to his friend list who ended up helping to track him down.” I guess he didn’t notice that their mutual friends were the D.A. and the County Sheriff.

I’m adding this to the growing list of restaurants that I need to try. “The noodle soup’s intense beefy broth with a touch of garlicky sweetness becomes more compelling the more of it you eat. A sort of distant cousin to Vietnamese pho, it holds rare beef slices, braised beef, tender meatballs and slender, slightly chewy pho-style rice noodles topped with a crisp herb-vegetable...
I Found This Postcard Today At An Audition
I discovered the same postcard at an audition a couple months ago and it made my day. tesslynch: Willing to sacrifice neither the shot of the front nor the shot of the back, I have decided to embed both in a text post. This is the front of the card. What’s a “slate”? It’s when actors say their names at the beginning of a taped audition. Usually (and I mean like 99% of the time), a slate goes...
Thoughts On Sonic Youth's Gossip Girl Appearance
1. I wonder if Thurston Moore was bitter that he didn’t get to marry Lily and Rufus. He’s tall and lanky and looks way more like a priest than Kim Gordon. 2. Was that Pavement’s Mark Ibold on bass? When did he join? 3. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a group of people less impressed that Sonic Youth was playing in a loft for 15 people. Half the cast walked in front...
