  • “Safety Not Guaranteed” Trailer [FB]

    If there’s one breakout actor from Parks and Recreation for me it’s Aubrey Plaza. Take a silly premise and what looks like a quirky indie film about the funniest wanted ad ever and I’m game.

  • Mad Men S5E01: “A Little Kiss” [IB]

    Mad Men is back, y’all, and it’s better than ever! Season four flirted with perfection, but that was somewhere around 17 months ago. Now it’s time for something new. I think it’s fair to guess that season five is probably going to deal with the civil rights issue that its protagonists have mostly dodged for […]

  • What I’ve Been Doing 2 April 2012 [FB/IB/F/BT/GO]

    Guys, Goon was really good. More later, but you should check it out. This week was a real scattershot weekend as I tried to play a bunch of games I didn’t give much time to before.

  • What I’ve Been Doing 19 Mar 2012 [FB/IB/F/BT/GO]

    I’ll get into it more later, but despite it being pretty standard fare for a sitcom, Happy Endings is actually hilarious and kind of awesome. I blew through season 1 this weekend (half on Netflix, then I bought the entire season on DVD). Just catching any TV is impressive considering that I haven’t watched a […]

  • Official Spoiler Rules [ER/IB]

    I think a standardized set of rules regarding spoilers would do the world a lot of good. All of these fine actors agree.

  • Zainichi Funk: Japanese Funk You Can’t Forget [F/ER]

    Have you ever found yourself thinking, “Self, what would kickass Japanese funk sound like?” Well, it would sound a lot like 在日ファンク (Zainichi Funk) The above song, “爆弾こわい” (“Bakugan Kowai” or “Scary Bomb”) is…awesome. Give it a listen. You might be disappointed if you have no soul, but I can’t see not liking it otherwise.

  • The Mariners Have Creative Ad Men [WMQ/ER]

    Your browser does not support iframes. I love the punch line in the impressions one (I LOVE ICHIRO!). The other great one is this riff on Rocky: Your browser does not support iframes.
