Cafe Was, you seduced me with your charming interior and bacon-wrapped dates. Your cheeseburger was just ok (and most will be from now on, compared to Umami) and the service was good. You are a little too pricey all things considered, but your super slow rotating piano man was a welcome treat. I'll be back.
and here are 2 places opening downtown soon that i will be visiting for sure:
a dessert bar with couches and crepes and sweet grilled cheese sandwiches. oh hell yes.
vegan cupcakes. supposedly great, opening their first west coast location. i can't wait to judge them on my cupcake scale from 1 to Violet's Cakes.
My grocery store is virtually empty during the day (now). It's like me and 5 AARP members.
They don't seem to mind when I spastically dance to, and sing along with "Good Thing" by the Fine Young Cannibals.
please try to deny the funness of that song. i double dog dare you.

you've just spent the last 15 minutes on a massive spider hunt. both the spider and the hunt were massive.
i spotted the asshole on the front door and then just as though he saw me, he dropped to the ground and to run and hide. the heat was on.
the first few minutes was spent weighing my murdering options. (sorry PETA, and those that i can't understand who want to let the bugs live and pick them up nicely and put them outside. what the h? they bite, you guys.)
i opted out of just plain ol' boring squishing and went for the magic bottle of poison under the sink made just for times like these.
the hunting process was made easier with the help of my cat who is closer to the ground and not a GIANT WUSS.
the hardest part was trying to get the cat to stop batting the spider around so i could drown him in evil sauce.
done and done.
then came the post murder victory dance. nothing too crazy because i have a giant headache.
and now back to the mighty boosh.

But the people that hang out at the grove make me want to turn into a serial killer.
Manic could not be added to your DVD Queue, because you have reached the queue limit of 500 movies. If you wish to add this movie, you must first remove movies from your queue.
Genius! I love that.
I will never ever ever watch everything in my queue. I will certainly die first.
This is so amusing.
So I have to dump some stuff out because I really want to watch Manic. The InStyle article with Joseph Gordon-Levitt quotes him as saying it has "one of the best kissing scenes ever on film" or something like that.
Must. Watch. Soon.

good for Radiohead sales and introducing them to a new generation of obsessive crazypants kids....bad because some people will undoubtedly deem Radiohead (or Thom) "SELLOUTS"!!
i say if it helps spread the word of good music who gives a shit?
there were only 2 good parts in the movie Twilight and one of them was when "15 Step" started playing us into the end credits.
this is one of my favorite twitters recently:
A pretty sunset is the sun's way of apologizing to me after it beat me up all day. But I know it's gonna get drunk and do it again tmrw.
and thanks unemployment for making me 1 zillion percent awake at 3am.
p.s. 500 Days of Summer was extremely enjoyable for me.

i'm not really alone with my love of the roots though. someone find me a person that dislikes the roots. please.
here's a full list of walk-on music provided by the best band in late night ever. i've already talked about this but i'm not sure that i've mentioned how much i love the LNWJF blog.
I knew when Sara Schafer left the Best Week Ever blog for Jimmy that there were good things to come. Sara kind of rules.
yeah. the whole series. in a cute GD box shaped like their house.
need. this. now.
Sarah Silverman got an Emmy nomination. in an acting category.
i kind of like that.
here are the rest of the nominees from EW some ridiculous (two and a half men and doucherage) and some super awesome (flight of the conchords and 30 Rock and The Office and Kristen Wiig)
(it's like "hi. this isn't live theater")
i swear, if these 2 get any cuter barf will start coming out of my ears.
(these are from InStyle and the 500 DOS site has even more)
and this is from Mean Magazine. The one i've been obsessed with forever (esp. because of this to die for photo shoot with Kate Beckinsale)
and also because they do shit like this:

Get good food (with shit service) from Snackbar and watch classics like Major League (like I did last night) or Rocky (like they're showing next week).
word is next month they're doing all christopher guest movies. sucks (for me) that they do these on tuesday nights. it's weird cheating on CDR.

~MGMT will be guesting on The Flaming Lips new album. Yes and thank you.

Comedy Death Ray last night gave me the opposite reaction that I got from Michael Jackson's funeral.
For Demetri Martin I would forgo my disbelieve in marriage.
also- Craig Robinson if kind of awesome.

I am helping my friend Teresa Ferraguto, the National Director of Recruitment for Uncommon Schools, recruit highly-qualified and dedicated teachers for positions that will begin this fall. Uncommon Schools is a nonprofit organization that manages outstanding urban charter public schools in New York City, upstate New York, and Newark, New Jersey. uncommonschools.org
These teaching positions are located in the New York City metro area but we are recruiting nationally for interested candidates. Uncommon Schools offers extremely competitive salaries and will help with relocation costs!
If you or anyone you know in the Los Angeles area is interested in learning more, please contact me to schedule some time to meet Terri when she is in Los Angeles next week.
Those of you interested who are not in Los Angeles, please contact me to schedule a time to talk to Terri over the phone or in person when she gets back to New York City.
I have attached some more information regarding times/locations for the meetings here in Los Angeles as well as the required qualifications.
Please forward to anyone you think might be interested!

Michael Jackson: Entertainment Weekly Tribute Cover
this is one of four. i want them all.
Shared via AddThis
"It was overwhelmingly electric working with Jonathan Glazer on this project, which feels more short film than video," said White. "I've never felt an intensity like I did on the set of this shoot. Absolutely violent, explosive, and poetic."
"Theirs was a beautiful energy to tap in to," explained Glazer. "You can't ask for anything more."
Can't wait to see it? Go HERE to view a trailer and film poster. Check back often for more visuals being revealed prior to the premiere.
