i want to go to Wayne's house

Last month, the internet noticed that you could see Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne taking a bath outside his Oklahoma City house on Google Street View. As it turns out, that particular burst of random weirdness had nothing on the inside of the house. In fact, Coyne's house looks something like the future-- the way the people who drew the covers of 1950s sci-fi paperbacks would've imagined it.

megan & nick

oh snaps. these 2 are getting real close to kicking amy & will out of the top spot for favorite couple.

read the interview with them @ NY Mag (where they mention amy & will...)

sidebar: there are people that like to laugh that don't watch Parks and Recreation. that is insane!

oscar talk


(insert gag sound effect here)

these 2 pieces of garbage arrived at an airport yesterday or something.

meanwhile, back on the plane, the poor airline employees are busy bleaching every surface they touched and opening windows to get rid of the bleach, cologne, hair product, and fake tan odors.

the plane is out of commission until further notice.

PTA + PSH = NDG Schwing

please please please let this be happening fast.

On 12.2.09 Cinematical's Monika Bartyzel, following-up on a Variety announcement, reported that Paul Thomas Anderson and Philip Seymour Hoffman would be teaming up for a new flick "about a man who creates his own religion." The feature would cost in the vicinity of $35 million with Hoffman playing "the Master, an L. Ron Hubbardish figure who starts a faith-based organization in the 1950s. He teams up with a twentysomething drifter named Freddie who becomes his lieutenant until the kid finds himself questioning the faith he's gotten himself involved in."

In its announcement story, Variety wrote that "the drama does not so much scrutinize self-started churches like Scientology or the Mormons, as much as it explores the need to believe in a higher power, the choice of which one to embrace and the point at which a belief system graduates into a religion."

That's a smokescreen statement. I was sent a copy of PTA's untitled script yesterday and while I haven't read all of it, it sure reads like a Scientology critique to me. I'm particularly thinking of a line near the end in which Hoffman's "Master" presents a contact that he wants Freddie to sign that stipulates he "will serve the Cause above all other laws and regulations in this or any other neighboring galaxy for three billion years." That sounds kinda

Random Oscar Trivia

God I love this and I remember fondly the time when I used to be paid to find this kind of shit out.

(Cary, remember how much articles like this helped us and led to fun office quizzes?)

By Dave Karger @ EW

Here are a handful of interesting (well, to me, at least) tidbits from yesterday’s announcement of the 82nd Annual Academy Award nominations.

1. Avatar received nine nominations but was left out of Best Screenplay. The last film to win Best Picture with out a screenplay nomination? James Cameron’s last nominee, Titanic.

2. Avatar wasn’t nominated for SAG Best Cast, lost the PGA and DGA awards, and is likely to lose the WGA prize later this month. Since the SAG Best Cast prize was introduced in 1996, no film has ever won Best Picture without winning at least one of the four major guild awards.

3. With four nominations, J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek reboot tied with Leonard Nimoy’s Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home for the most nods for a Trek film.

4. Up in the Air scored six nominations (including three for acting, more than any other movie) but was left out of Best Editing. No film has won Best Picture without an editing nomination since Ordinary People in 1981.

5. Up in the Air producers Jason and Ivan Reitman are the first father/son producing team to be nominated for Best Picture since Mario and Vittorio Cecchi Gori for Il Postino in 1995.

6. Precious is the first-ever Best Picture nominee to be directed by an African-American filmmaker.

7. Earning her 16th career acting nomination for Julie & Julia, Meryl Streep broke her own record—again—for the most nominated actor in Oscar history.

8. This year’s SAG nominees in the individual acting races lined up with the eventual acting nominees 19 for 20, the most ever. The only Oscar nominee not to earn a SAG nod first: Crazy Heart’s Maggie Gyllenhaal.

9. If Avatar wins Best Picture, it’ll be the highest-grossing winner ever (obviously).

10. If The Hurt Locker wins Best Picture, it’ll be the lowest-grossing winner ever.

11. The last time Meryl Streep won an Oscar, in 1983, was before her competitors Carey Mulligan and Gabourey Sidibe were even born.

good news

NBC renews "Parks and Recreation" for third season

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - NBC has renewed the comedy "Parks and Recreation" for a third season.

The early pickup was done strictly for production reasons, to lock in actors' schedules, a representative for NBC said, stressing that the sole pickup in no means reflects on the renewal chances of NBC's other Thursday comedies.

Indeed, "The Office," "30 Rock" and freshman "Community," which pull higher ratings than "Parks," all look set to return for another season.

After a soft start as a midseason entry last spring, "Parks," which stars Amy Poehler and Aziz Ansari, has been gaining steam this season creatively and ratings-wise.

Season to date, "Parks" has averaged 5.1 million viewers.
