A reader sent in this photo of the Annie Hall screening by the Brooklyn Bridge last night.
Last night I watched “Manhattan” while I watched Manhattan @ Pier 1 on the wet (hissing) summer lawn.
(I guess this picture is from last year.)
We are become pals!: Chapter 1. -
This is how Jane and Helen met.
It was the Halloween dance. They were both dressed as male FBI agents. Jane’s hair was pulled back in a pony tail. No makeup. She wore an ill-fitting suit that she borrowed from her brother. The jacket looked silly over her breasts unless it was…
Samuel L. Jackson voices this audiobook version of "Go The Fuck to Sleep." Thank you, Internet. -
At $16-$18 each, I think I’d just have too look at them for now. Such pretty colors & glitter.

Silly Questions For Smart People: Tess Lynch
For the triumphant return of “Silly Questions For Smart People,” we decided to check in with one of our favorite people: Tess “T-Pain” Lynch. In this installment, we discuss spirit animals, hamburgers, casting offices and forties! For more on Ms. Lynch, please check out her blogs: tesslynch.tumblr.com & tesslynch.blogspot.com
What was the last book you recommended to a friend?
I keep pushing my dad to read all of these Vietnam novels, for some reason. He wasn’t in Vietnam, and he’s a pacifist, but I ignore all of these silly details and start every conversation with “Hey hey hey dad. Hey dad. You have to read Tree of Smoke. You have to. Will you?” He won’t. Apparently my recommendations mean zip squat.
Did Judy Blume help get you through your early adolescence?
Absolutely. I leaned heavily on the underrated “Tiger Eyes” – it’s from Blume’s morbid period. Not her “period” period. It’s about a girl whose father is killed in a 7-11. I was afraid to get Big Gulps unattended until I was like sixteen.
Was Sarah really plain and tall?
Sarah Plain and Tall would be a great remake, because her husband, the widower, basically advertised in a 19th century version of Craigslist for a wife. And he got Sarah. Now he’d probably end up with a plain, tall transvestite with a penchant for leather. So, in comparison, she wasn’t as plain and tall as she’d be in this century.
What is your spirit animal and would you get said animal tattooed on the side of your face as a daily reminder of your fierceness/cuddlyness?
I love chameleons. Molly Lambert likes to bring this up at parties – Hey!! Who here likes reptiles! Tess does! She had all these aquariums! – and I used to steal her calculator to get back at her for making me seem like I lived in a dungeon. But I’m now comfortable enough to admit that, okay, I’m creepy that way. The obvious next step in accepting this potentially polarizing interest is to get a tattoo of a chameleon on my face, and I’m really glad you brought it up. I’m sure I can find someone to finance this in a cricket-infested apartment in Sun Valley. I’m writing myself a stickie to make sure I get this done in time for next GPOYW.
Why are casting offices always so cold?
Sweaty actors on camera eating/speaking about imaginary Taco Bell chalupas is a turn off. Plus, these offices are also used for porn. So…I don’t need to explain anything else. Unless – no, I have to stop here.
Why do we feel the need to engage in small talk with other actors and casting assistants?
To gently segue into the comfort zone where you feel okay about asking someone in charge – anyone at all – to turn on the damn heat.
Do you think it’s a good idea to scream so loudly during an audition that a person on the phone with a casting assistant in another room could hear it all the way, in let’s say, Burbank and you’re screaming in West Hollywood?
I have friends who have done this and reaped huge rewards. They do voiceovers exclusively for IMAX now.
Have you ever appeared in a student film? And if so, which school provided the best craft services?
I did one USC student film. It was for a spec Scrabble commercial. There were donuts, but what I remember most was this beefy middle-aged man who told me he wouldn’t have a career if not for his Blackberry. “Sometimes in the middle of the night, I can submit to shorts! Or projects just like this one! I just wake up and do it from bed, and go right back to sleep after!”
How depressing are the listings on those casting sites?
Imagine a virtual room, poorly designed (ratty futon, Cats poster on the wall) filled with desperate, young, blond people who own a plethora of quick-serve restaurant uniforms and swimwear that they feel comfortable donning in front of strangers. It is, however, almost poetic at times: yesterday, a breakdown arrived with the character description “she see’s [sic] the counselor after Hubert.” And that’s all it said.
Why is the Internet so gaga over the ladies at This Recording?
Full credit for that goes to Alex Carnevale. For me, when I was contributing a lot to TR, I always wrote for Alex. He’s objective, his criticisms are always correct, and I’ve been a big fan of his writing since I read his stuff in college. We were both in the same pseudo-thesis program, and had a lot of mutual respect for one another, so impressing him was always the goal. I think that the format of TR, and the quality of the stuff that’s posted, makes you edit your posts more than one normally would for a blog. And so not only is he somehow a magnet for beautiful women who want to write for and enjoy the kind of things on the site, but readers can connect with the writer in a more thoughtful, more substantial essay than you would expect from the interwebs. Also: where Magic Molly goes, boys follow. Even I have a crush on Magic Molly. And Molly Lambert’s science corner is devastatingly sexy.
If you were to give birth to, let’s say twins or sextuplets, would you give the individual and unique names or a set of names starting with the same letter?
Some of them might have names that start with the letter “abortion.”
Should the guy ask the girl to be his girlfriend or just openly introduce her at a function as his girlfriend?
I’m old-fashioned. I don’t date. Instead, I engage in a mythical ritual with people I’m considering sleeping with that binds us for life, and then I like to be introduced as “My Lady of Righteousness.” Luckily, the annulment ceremony is super-easy and can be done via text message.
Name your top three places for hamburgers in Southern California:
The Apple Pan, Fatburger, and the ones they sell from trucks at the Rose Bowl. Honorable mentions go to In N’ Out and Laurel Tavern, which I hear is a lot like Father’s Office. Sadly, I’ve never been to Father’s Office, because Santa Monica makes me feel unjustifiably angry and as though I want to graffiti everything.
Flat patty or thick patty:
I never go past 1” thick. The hamburgers that resemble meatballs in a bun? I find those confusing, and impossible to eat in front of strangers without apologizing profusely.
Carnitas or Carne Asada:
Carnitas all the way.
Buy or Sell:
I assume you mean marijuana? Or eggs-from-donors’-ovaries? Buy both in bulk and store in an air-tight container.
Misfits era Danzig or Late 80s solo artist Danzig:
Is it advanced to go with Samhain? SAMHAIIIIN! No, no, not Samhain. The Misfits. Samhain wasn’t that good. Let’s be honest.
What’s the ideal adult beverage for a robust afternoon of spring-cleaning?
People think I’m being ironic when I say I like PBR. I’m not being ironic. There’s nothing ironic about cheap beer in glorious excess. Gimlets, also. You have to set the tone. The tone is tipsy. This keeps you from over-cleaning, though I’m immune to this particular neurosis.
Aren’t newlyweds’ dicks?
Why is this? Why? STFUMarrieds is like a psychological study of otherwise normal human beings turning into the kind of people who mention massage oil in their Facebook status updates.
If I could raise enough capital, would you want to star in my web cooking show pilot? You know, something like Rachel Ray meets LOLcats. Would you be into that?
Yes. Are we cooking the LOLcats? Because the answer is still yes.
Do you have a signature article of clothing and/or look?
When I’m not in my tribal dashiki, I’m usually doing a rough approximation of Lisa Simpson. But I’m still flesh-toned.
Does the world really end in the city of Marina Del Rey?
Doesn’t Scarlett Johansson sort of ruin everything or does she get a pass cause she was in Lost In Translation?
Ghost World + Lost In Translation = 100 points.
Anywhere I Lay My Head + her performance in Vicki Cristina Barcelona = -150 points.
Can we spend a summer’s evening on your porch drinking forties?
Mr. Reinhardt, I thought you’d never ask.
Name five people who should answer a similar set of questions:
Bunkercomplex, Yvonne Georgina, Georgia Hardstark, Bebelestrange, Rillawafers.
Who left the cake out in the rain?
I’ve found that you can accurately blame the GOP for everything.
