Burton! That's my old dorm. I spent many a night stoned in that old Burton basement.

January 26, 2012 on The Stephen Colbert Interview With Maurice Sendak That You’ve Already Seen Is Worth Watching Again
There are two things I can always count on: 1. People who say they are "quitting Facebook for a while" are always back on the next week. 2. Every straight couple who says they won't marry until gay marriage is legal gets married anyway.

Except that they would never introduce themselves by name. It's an unwritten rule of dog parks that you know all the dogs' names and everything about them but nothing of the people accompanying them.

December 7, 2011 on These Two New Clips From The Upcoming Season Of Portlandia Make Us All Even More Excited For The Upcoming Season Of Portlandia
What I do find odd is why is Scott Rudin the one responding to this (and in such an inarticulate and douchey way)? I'd never let that happen on my watch.

December 6, 2011 on Videogum Joins The New Yorker In Breaking The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Movie Review Embargo
I don't know- speaking as a publicist, a writer breaking an embargo is a big deal. You give them stuff early and they agree not to publish before a certain date. That's the business contract. I'd be HUGELY pissed if a journalist broke an embargo we agreed to. And as a former film publicist, a lot of effort and coordination goes into the release of a film. You want a big blitz when the movie opens. If all the PR happens a month beforehand, it can really affect the buzz about the film once it's finally in theaters.

He also discussed this when he was interviewed before his "Not My Job" segment on Wait! Wait! Don't Tell Me! if you want to hear it come out of his mouth directly. Love, NPR Nerd

August 31, 2011 on Kevin Bacon Was Mr. Cool Disguise For A Day, Hated It
John Powers (on Fresh Air) said it was the weirdest movie he ever saw and no one liked it at Cannes but no one could leave because it was mesmerizing how it kept getting weirder and weirder.

April 19, 2011 on Do These Middle-Aged Women Having A “Flash Mob” At Target Mean That We Can Finally Be Done With Flash Mobs?
"She's only in the public eye because of her mom"- um, and whoring herself out to tabloids and jockeying to be on television shows like "Dancing with the Stars". Yeah, just a normal girl that isn't trying to be famous. Totally.

Oh, Casey, you have such serious indie film cred that you could never have run that tape over a DVD of "Titanic".

I know Nao from the art-scene in SF, back in the day. Keep in mind she's a performance artist. Performance is key.

Terri is Assistant Manager at Sheets and Things, which I think makes her character that much more perfect. Also, I got on a stalking spree last night and looked up all dance videos with Brittany (Heather Morris). Worth it.

Rose and Bernard are living with Vincent in a little cabin. They made the conscious decision to take themselves out of the drama. It was a good decision.

Give it a second chance. In & Out is actually really good. And I'm gay.
