Multiple random plugs (get it? Hanh? HANH?):
One of my favorite This American Life segments: David Rakoff’s heartbreaking “Speak Now or Forever Hold Your Peace,” Act Three of Episode 389 – Frenemies. If you agree with me that TAL is one of the best shows ever on radio, consider a donation.
Had a surprisingly good time watching Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. Probably helped to be sitting between two kids who were laughing at all the genuinely smart and/or bizarre gags. Way better movie than it needed to be to fill it’s demographic slot.
Whole family is enjoying Glee and rooting for it to get better already.
“Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell” by Das Racist/Wallpaper. Find it. Listen to it. Hate me forever for making you do it.
My wife and I were also very pleasantly surprised at how clever and enjoyable Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs turned out to be. Wonderfully quirky. Highly recommended.
Ha, I’m an idiot. Power strip. I read it this morning and I just now GOT it.
You are aware that there is a “TAL” comic book, yes? By the talented Jessica Abel? I suggest you also purchase the episode which is featured in the comic.
I take the lazy route by listening to the TAL podcast. They ARE the shiz-nit. They remind us that broadcast news only depicts that which is television-worthy… which isn’t anything like real life.
“Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” includes the creatives of “Clone High” – if you haven’t seen that, you’re truly missing something!
