Billion Brick Race


++I just adored Jason Segal's sit down with Marc Maron for a recent WTF...probably one of the best I've heard. His openness about his battle with alcoholism was refreshing as were his takes on his relationship with co-star Jesse Eisenberg. ("You could play the Captain of a lesser country." Lol.) I don't have high hopes for their DFW movie but now I have to see it? Here are pics of Galco's Market, the old fashioned candy store Maron mentions towards the end of the broadcast.

++I've heard this kind of song many many many times before and still it's kinda fitting the bill today.

The American Religion

++Open Mike Eagle: Haha...I know it probably doesn't seem like I get out much, but lately I recognize EVERY place I see on tv or in commercials. If anything, I get out way too much.

++Do kids still play with real toys? Because if not, they are missing out.

(I'm nostalgic internet, but please don't play me...)

Scruffy Looking Nerf Herders

++I'd be happy with even just one of Martin Newell's AKAs. He worked with a guy who was nicknamed "lol" back in the 80s. That guy knew what was up.

++Girl, YES!

++Should I use this space space to publicly grovel for someone to send me some of dem sold out UMO tix? Uhh yah. They have trashed my heart like a hotel room.

++Sumpin intriguing about this portrait. Not sure what.

++Linklater, who I will link to Now, is in talks to direct The Rosie Project about an uptight professor who formulates a questionnaire to find a second date. That greyhaired Dr. EHarmony's like "Harumph!", for sure.

++Guess I'm late to the game on this one because it already has a ton of views. It's a numbers game, a thought provoking kinda video despite the implication of violence...the stats of being a young hip couple.

++Maybe everything and every one is related to Genghis Khan.

++Really rootin for Leo to find the hot blonde models at the end of this film. That's what happens, right?

Street Legal


++Plan to spend today researching whether there's a law against hitching one of these to your rear bumper to ward off pesky tailgaters. What a caper it will be if I can pull this off.

++I saw Ant Man over the weekend and hands down my favorite part of the movie was when he went subatomic and was swimming in a world of fractals. Was tbt the live action meets animation of mee childhood. Felt kind of European for a big budget American movie. This video from my sidebar bbs UMO seem to fit into this discussion.

++I've had that damn Counting Stars song stuck in my head this morning. Didya know that Ryan Tedder has written a bazillion cajillion songs earning him the title of "The Undercover King of Pop"..and that he co-owns a chain of bbq restaurants with JTims? American celebrities are always trying to start bbq related side businesses. Like the next square on the fame gameboard.

++It was a little unexpected to read that Pachamama is typically represented in the form of a maltipoo, which I thought was a more modern breed of dog, but you do you, maltipooo.

++You say hallyu, I say Hell Yes! That would be real charming to walk around saying at KCON if you're not Korean #protip.

The Power To Change

++This is a little abstract/high concept but go with me here. My ideal romcom would be one in which Ruth Reichl's tweets meet up and marry Richard E. Grant's tweets.


++I haven't actually heard any of the new Muse, but who am I to take away a critic's fun.

++So which is it. Slowness, or Energy? Tell me what to do!

++Tough one.


++Nice texture to this Sleepy Tom/Anna Lunoe venture. FFd to about the 1:32 mark. Deelightful.

++Bruce Dern didn't look too pleased to be at ol' Comic Con.

++What happens to her next, Liz Gillz? We gots to know!!

Get More Subs

++Ahh, that's what that guy's name is.

++I have never even looked up Nat Wolff, don't know a thing about him, and I'm already tired of him and seeing his name. How does this happen.

++Wow, back in the 1890s William James spawned a bunch of Emo-ness today.

++The state flag of Colorado, Comedy Central, Criterion and Cannes Critic logos: Do you cc what I cc?

++Big year for donuts... Kaitlyns.

++Howzabout a little throwback accione?  Anyone remember this song? Probably just meeeee.
