Fun With Unfortunate Advertising

“Cashmere Mafia on ABC….Brought to you by Valtrex!” No better marquee sponsor for a thinly disguised remake of Sex and the City than a herpes medication. That single line by the announcer made me laugh a lot harder than anything on the actual show.

I Guess This Means I Should Buy A Hamburger Phone 1

I just had the fifth person I know tell me unsolicited that they watched Juno and she reminded them of me. I take it as a compliment, since I really liked the character. However, this raises two related questions for me: 1. How much weirder does this trend make it that this movie made me ...

Merry Christmas

I don’t know what makes me laugh more, the cat’s sour look or the hand holding on the sad little Santa hat.

‘Twas The Night Before Strike-mas 2

‘Twas the night before Strike-mas, and through Hollywood Every crew member thought, “Oy, this can’t be good.” The pink slips had been rolling on in for weeks And news only came out in rumors and leaks. The children were nestled all snug in their beds While parents sought Advil to quiet their heads I was ...

IM Fun

I hereby present a screencap of a brief conversation with a friend and former co-worker that I had yesterday that amused me greatly. I am represented by the Santa chugging a bottle of Jack on the right, while my friend is represented by MacGyver.

So I get home from drinking with the crew because today (well, yesterday at this hour) was our last day of filming, and I grab the computer so I can read while icing my foot. The first thing I see when I look at my RSS feeds is this from the Onion: “Uninsured Man Hopes ...

Bowling Notes

From last night’s Office vs. Set Bowl Off: Where Strikes Are A Good Thing. – Bowling is really hard if you’ve injured the foot you have to plant. – If you have injured that foot, bowling becomes a lot easier if you just muscle the ball from off your good foot, even though it may ...

Now This, I Might Have Kept Watching 1

From G4’s Attack of the Show, a Bionic Woman parody far more entertaining than the actual show: The Subaru bit just killed me. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to drive to work…in my Subaru. Hat tip: After Ellen.

On A Lighter, More Baseball-Related Note… 1

He Ate WHAT?!

I listen to the BBC Global News Podcast in the car while I’m schlepping various things around Los Angeles, because it’s an easy way for me to maintain my goal of being reasonably informed about the rest of the world.
