Also, if they're meeting each other halfway and the total one-way trip is an hour and a half, then Drew IS 45 minutes from where their meeting point would be (Bowling Green?). Anyway, this makes me sad.

Oh gosh-- the book tour video? So much recognition... not about a book tour, but about that type of person. I know that person, and he/she can be so weirdly magnetic! It's messed up! Then the disbelief mixed with the accommodating impulse. Thank you for capturing that so well. Anyway, I really liked it.

Interesting. I was kind of bummed by the watch thing because, even though I totally CALLED IT last week with the ticking sound in Walt's living room, I thought it'd manifest as an actual plot point and not some lame ham-fisted college-freshman symbolic bullshit. But maybe it will come to something after all?

SONIC FORESHADOWING, you guys!!! I can't stop listening for it. At some point in the middle of last season there was a scene where Walt gets out of his car and the open-car-door dinging sound is REALLY loud. Like, unusually loud. In fact, I don't think I'd ever heard that sound when Walt got out of his car, and I said to my husband, "That dinging is important. That definitely means something." And he thought I was full of shit. He laughed at me! But sure enough, the dinging TOTALLY FORESHADOWED Hector ringing the bell right before the bomb went off! OK, that said, in this episode I heard a distinct and heretofore-unnoticed ticking (of a clock I guess?) when Walt and Marie were talking in the living room. (I was listening with headphones, so maybe that made it unusually distinct, but still...) It could just mean Walt's time is running out (which we kind of knew already) but maybe it means something more? Also, I feel like the Scarface allusion is too ham-handed to be significant. The devil is in the details, muthafuckas!

Actresses have bad taste in bands to be band-girlfriends with.

I feel very conflicted about the fact that Rex Reed is the one critic who hated Tree of Life as much as I did. You see, in the beginning there was a big bang, and then cellular life emerged and then the dinosaurs were wiped out and then human life evolved and then Rex Reed and I were in disharmony throughout most of our lives but then came together in peace and reconciliation on a windswept beach, and one of us may or may not have been a ghost or something.

Wait, do some people actually not like Regis Philbin? I'm being serious.

Yeah, and I don't think most people's idea of a "world-ending disaster that wrenches your stomach" includes David Karp messing up some html.

The alien/impersonator theory is really the only one that passes the Occam's razor test.

I feel like it's a good idea to be able to recognize what a gun is so you don't try to grab one out of a policeman's holster or ignore someone who's trying to rob you. And Hershey bars are just tasty, so that's a good thing to know about too.

A few months back I was pulling out of the driveway and it was getting dark and a group of those bicyclists that are just slathered in spandex and weird logos rode by, and one of them yelled out "Turn your lights on, idiot!" I hated all bicyclists everywhere that day.

I love this for a couple of reasons. First, I've nominated "Deconstructing Harry" for the Hunt for the Worst Movie of All Time. Second, I've nominated Osama bin Laden for the Hunt for the Worst Human of All Time (After Hitler).

Did I ever tell you guys about the time I met Helen Mirren and her T-shirt was inside out? True story. It's just a very good anecdote.

I have to admit I came here just to see how Gabe would incorporate the tsunami news. And I have to say...I'm not sure I agree with you a hundred percent on your blog work there, Gabe.
