there is not one thing i don't like about this trailer. yes, it's a bit rom-com wacky but remember how i am a dork. and a girl.
Even Julia Roberts.
out March 20th....
these are 2 of the best (and most brutal) breakup scenes in movie history.
natalie stops being polite and starts getting real at 2:45 and i love it.
and this is perfect clive owen.
Tom Hanks turns on the charm in You've Got Mail.
Yes. You've Got Freakin' Mail.
I make no apologies for my love of this movie.
None at all.
I am powerless against some good ol' fashioned sexual tension.
Did you catch who the cashier is? It's Dr. Callie Torres from Grey's Anatomy.
Fun fact: I am a gigantic nerd.
and remember when michael cera was sitting in front of me at UCB last night?
and so was this guy.
and remember when i am going to see Charlyne Yi and Fred Armisen on December 18th and i'm sure he'll be there again?

here are my favorite quotes:
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia-The Nightman Cometh
"I'm going to slap your face right off of your face!"
The Office-Frame Toby
"Welcome back jerky jerkface."
Sidebar about The Office: "Frame Toby" was written by Mindy Kaling and directed by Jason Reitman.
(not nice....both of them are younger than i am)
Adventureland trailer in HD
thanks again playlist.
It just comes in the mail. I assume it's because I get Vogue and they want to give me a special treat since I've been subscribing since the 90s.
So this morning I get to work and open the December/January issue...mildy excited because at least I'll get some hot dude pictures and some hot dude cologne samples.
And then I get to page 124.
Got me like a dog as I pause and pant
It's Q-Tip and Norah Jones in a photo spread by one of my favorite photographers Max Vadukul.
My God does he know how to wear a suit.
As soon as I can I am going to scan the pictures since they aren't online yet.
Is it wrong that I want to frame these?
'Arrested Development' film gets closer

The "Arrested Development" feature has moved closer to reality, with Mitch Hurwitz and Ron Howard reportedly closing deals for the long-gestating project from Imagine and Fox Searchlight.

in case you can't tell, that's a table read for the movie Funny People. I slightly worship all of those people for different reasons.
I was lucky enough to see 5 of them doing stand-up at UCB, but adding Schwartman, Leslie Mann, the effing RZA and Eric Bana to the mix is kind of kick ass. Aubrey Plaza, the tiny one next to Judd is my new favorite chick comedian. I also love how bored Judd & Leslie's kids look.
The Playlist posted this, so go there if you want a bigger pic for the spank bank.

this picture is like, melting my eyeballs with it's hotness.
sometimes in shuffle mode you try to make me upset.
today you won't win.
check out this threesome i was handed on the way to work:
Iron & Wine - The Trapeze Swinger (the good itunes sessions version)
(no shit, this song can make me cry in like 14 seconds)
Fiona Apple - Shadowboxer
(ouch ouch ouch)
Damien Rice - Volcano
(are you joking me?)
What I am to you is not real
What I am to you, you do not need
What I am to you is not what you mean to me
You give me miles and miles of mountains
And I'll ask for the sea
Screw off ipod.
I am the boss of you, not the other way around.
I was about the throw the POS out the window when it saved itself and it was all "Mirror Mirror on the wall"
And i was all "fuck yes"

i spent tonight at the arclight instead of at ucb. at first i was sad about it, then i saw Rachel Getting Married.
it's long but worth it.
that's what she said.

Um, those are my favorite dogs on earth.

In related news, look for the comedian on an upcoming episode of Sesame Street. And this week Rotten Tomatoes posted a massive, 15-part interview with Gervais that you can start watching now. Topics include Extras, Karl Pilkington and Simon Pegg.
fun fact: i could listen to Ricky talk shit about Karl Pilkington allll day and his laugh is my number 2 fave behind my fiancé Seth Rogen.
now go read Ricky's blog already.

This album is saving me from overdosing on Q-Tip.
The Visitor is a completely and totally flawless film, from start to finish.
Richard Jenkins will deservedly get an Oscar nomination for this, but it's sad that the rest of the cast won't. Maybe probably hopefully the Spirit Awards will recognize them. Fingers crossed for the writer/director too. He also wrote and directed underrated gem The Station Agent. Queue it up.
As for Jenkins, dude's got crazy range...just this year from Step Brothers, to The Visitor, and then Burn After Reading. He deserves all the prizes he can get.
I want to hug this movie.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.
My life is shit and last night I saw one of the best Comedy Death Ray shows evahhhhhhh.
Andy Ritchie, Bob Odenkirk, Zach Galifianakis, and mostly Greg Proops brought the laughs.
At one point I had to physically stop myself from laughing because I was going to barf. You know like when a dude has to stop a boner. You have to think of awful stuff for a second. (what if McCain had won? Animal abuse. Work. The movie Babel. Work. )
Anyway. Good times.
Other highlight of the week:
We saw Russell Brand again at Largo. Icing? Colin Firth, Matthew Goode, Rufus Sewell and Jason Segal did too.
Remember when Mark Darcy made eye contact with me? I
The Flaming Lips movie, Christmas on Mars is here.
I heard Wayne Coyne rambling about this when I saw the Lips in concert in Seattle in like 2002.
The trailer makes me a little nervous, but a song lyric I've heard a zillion times reminds me that "all the best things make you nervous, all the best things come in disguise".
What? i don't even know what I'm talking about.
Here's the weird ass trailer.

I'm serious. It works. There's even a battery operated fake flame.
Meanwhile, I just realized I've been blogging for over a year. I remember I posted about last year's Gap ads because of my fierce Krasinski boner and fave couple Arnett/Poehler.
from best week ever..
i really miss the music
like Better Than Ezra, "Good"
go to VH1 Classics to watch other 90s good stuff. like The Breeders Cannonball perhaps.
it's 4 minutes and 52 seconds of 2 dudes talking about the genius.
but i kind of love keith olbermann. like a lot.
i would hug him till his eyeballs popped out.

1. Don't personally congratulate all your black friends.
Black people are not a sports team, and Obama did not win the Super Bowl.
2. Don't declare that you "never thought you'd see the day."
You never thought you'd see the day?
3. Don't start crossing the street in order to walk next to a black person.
President Obama is glad you support racial reconciliation, but he takes a hard line against jaywalking.
4. Don't name drop "Dr. King."
If you absolutely must make some comment about how this is a victory for civil rights, pick a marginally less obvious figurehead.
5. Don't use the phrase "white people" in any way that suggests it doesn't include you.
Contrary to popular belief, having voted for Obama does not make you even "semi-down."
Sorry if there was any confusion there.
source: the root
sidebar: being on franklin avenue outside of la poubelle, bird's, prizzi's and the ucb while we found out about Obama was one of the most amazing experiences i've ever had.
strangers were hugging, people were crying happy tears and it was a super fun block party. this was the only time i didn't get annoyed by non-stop car horns and woohooing.

so here's this video of him and Kevin Smith talking about Zack & Miri.
Artist on Artist: Kevin Smith and Seth Rogen
I was there last night and it was highly entertaining. The only bad news came when I actually contemplated being one of the "ladies" who stands around after the show waiting to do it with him. Or getting his autograph, as Russell says it, "on your uterus, with my sperm".
Guess what, it takes a suuuper funny, charming, and extremely book and street smart dude to pull off saying shit like that and not coming off like a fucking creep. A British accent doesn't hurt either.
He's doing another show Sunday night. We are going again. Right MAB?
