I Bet Alison Brie Wants to Go to a Rolling Stones Concert

By Seth Freilich | Pajiba Love | April 22, 2013 | Comments ()


For the first time ever, the Rolling Stones are set to start a tour on the West Coast, with their tour slated to open right here in LA on May 2. (LA Times)

With less than two weeks to go, the show is shockingly not sold out. I think it's because the marketing team has done a terrible job advertising this show. And the Rolling Stones, for a tour celebrating their fiftieth anniversary, deserve better. So get the word out!


(Now if you think I'm telling you this just because I'm trying to build awareness for the Los Angeles show because I'm in a consortium that has twenty grand's worth of tickets to sell in the next week ... well that's preposterous.)

One of my biggest complaints about Santa Monica, a city I absolutely love living in, is that there's no butcher. Sometimes, you gotta get a real nice cut of meat and Whole Foods don't cut it. Well finally, looks like we're getting a proper butcher. A Cut Above may not wind up being Satriele's, but it'll do pig, it'll do. (Eater LA)

And speaking of meat, here's the best scene set in a meat locker starring Patton Oswalt as the Penguin that you'll see all day:

Batman may not "kill" people, but the Bride sure does. Over the weekend, a friend of mine told me he's not really a big Quentin Tarantino fan. So over the weekend, a friend of mine told me he's kind of an idiot. That idiot may not dig seeing this awesome Kill Bill scene in color, but you're not an idiot. (Unreality)

Killing a GOP economic argument may not be quite as exciting as killing ninjas, but this is a good read nevertheless. (Salon)

Even economists who can't use spreadsheets will tell you that getting upgraded frequent flier status is a good investment, especially when you can game the system and get that status a little quicker. (lifehacker)

You wanna get some miles next week? Come fly to LA to see the Stones. I may just know a guy who knows a guy who's part of a conglomerate selling $20K worth of tickets.

...I wonder if this guy takes this awesome grill to tailgate before concerts. Like before a Rolling Stones concert. Like before a Rolling Stones concert in LA next week:

Reader Clevaahgirl lives in Watertown and offers a brief but lovely inside look at the sh*t that went down last week. Also, f*ck Nate Bell. (I'll Put It Here)

Dustin has declared the only acceptable "Dexter" spin-off option. He's wrong of course, because the only option really is Yvonne Strahovski's Hanna. But go see what he thinks and if I didn't give you enough links, he's got links a-plenty. But then come back. (Warming Glow)


That's your thank you gift for coming back.

Via reddit comes this list of twenty-nine "twin" movies, similar movies that came out in the same year or relatively close-like. Not a single one of them has an awesome steampunk barbeque grill. (CircadianHour's imgur album )

This is an old video, but it doesn't make it any less entertaining and since I've been listening to a bunch of Tom Waits lately, well, here you go:

Speaking of old musicians, y'all hear there's a Rolling Stones concert in LA next week?

It'll take until 2068 for the documentary to come out to tell us how much the internet and all its memes has ruined our lives, something we each and everyone of us know deep, down inside. (io9)

But that's the future. For now, we've got internet memes and Alison Brie and I'm pretty sure the Pajiba bylaws mandate Pajiba Love end with this video:

Now, seriously, who wants to buy some Stones tickets?

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • NateMan

    Woo, another win for Umass, Amherst! We can't be stopped, bitches.

  • googergieger

    My idea for a Dexter spin off, is a prequel of the trinity killer being hunted by that old dude that used to bang Debra. In musical form. Also Columbo shows up for no apparent reason.

  • lowercase_ryan

    Allison being willing to fall on her ass for that bit is fabulous.

  • The extreme ticket prices may have something to do with it... Seriously, the only person that I MIGHT consider paying that kind of money for is Sir Paul, and even then I'd have to think about it. When I saw U2 a couple of years ago, two tickets and a hotel room were less than the cost of a single ticket for the Rolling Stones. That seems a little ridiculous to me.

  • jennp421

    Does that mean that $20,000 worth of tickets is really only ten tickets total?

  • I know at some of the venues, their lowest price is $400 per ticket.

  • chanohack


    Ahem, sorry. Really though. He's lovely.

  • Oh, if he ever deigns to come within driving distance of NOLA, I'm there! I can watch YouTube clips of his concerts for hours and be happy as a clam. :)

  • RilesSD

    This, exactly.

  • bleujayone

    Truth in advertising to promote the Rolling Stones....

    -"Come see the Rolling Stones; "One Foot In The Grave Tour". After half a century of performing, they remain one of the greatest icons in rock n' roll history.... And who knows? Maybe you'll be the the lucky ones who can claim you were there to see Keith Richards' last stage performance before he clutched his chest, slurred something incomprehensible and keeled over during his solo on "Brown Sugar" but unlike the countless times of doing this before, never rose again!"

    And to think, after all these decades on Colombian Pixie Stix and Dragon Shooters it will probably a tall glass of Florida orange juice just slightly past its freshness date infused with Metamucil that finally does his ticker in.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Keith Richards will survive the rest of them. Although "survive" may not be the correct term. I'm pretty sure that he's been dead for years, but his brain hasn't registered the fact yet.

    Watts will probably the first one to go, because of boredom.

  • bleujayone

    If Charlie Watts slumped over his drum kit and shuffled off to the Great Gig in the Sky, would people just think he was pausing for effect?

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Nah. They'd not notice at first, up until the point five seconds later, when the rest of the band spins out of control.

    Watts may not have much to do, but he keeps the whole thing together.

  • kushiro -

    How and why do you have 20 grand worth of Stones tickets?

  • Let's just say that the motto of my life remains "bad decisions have been made."

  • kushiro -

    I'm just trying to figure out if you're one of those people they talk about in those consumer affairs programs where they investigate high-volume ticket scalping operations.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Was one of those bad decisions not to include a way to buy tickets directly from you or your conglomerate?

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    Man, I wish I could find someone who has tickets for The Stones concert in L.A. Alas, I suppose it's not meant to be.

  • John G.

    Why would anyone pay money to see a bunch of old millionaires hobble around the stage singing hits that haven't been hits in 50 years, made by these same guys when they were 50 years younger, FIFTY FUCKING YEARS ago.

    Now, I'm the first to admit that it's interesting to see exactly how much a single band can sell out, to see if there is actually any limit to the level a corporation can join with an artist, absorb them, and become some kind of cybernetic organism, but at this point it's just getting too sad. I just want to euthanize them.

  • FartKnocker7000

    Eat a dick, John G.

  • John G.

    just one? not a whole bag of them?

  • You know what they say about a journey of a thousand dicks...

  • chanohack

    No. What do they say?

  • That it begins with a single shaft.

  • BWeaves

    I'd rather be dead than singing 'Satisfaction' when I'm forty-five.

  • A pajiba love trifecta for me: Batman, Alison Brie and Yvonne Strahovski. I'm pretty sure this is a sign this week will be infinitely more awesome than last. Though how could it not be.

    I think the more accurate way to say it would be Batman tries not to kill. Because technically he did kill Harvey Dent in TDK. But no one bats an eye at it because he was saving Gordon's kid.

    It's funny, just as I was reading over that I thought of Bane reading Gordon's letter in that awesome voice, "He saved my boy". Dammit I love that movie, and Ms Brie and Strahovski.

  • elsie

    Seth, you are so funny. Also, it's shocking how similar the movie posters are for some of those twin movies.

  • BWeaves

    I had a lot of confusion when those "twin" movies came out, but I've never heard of the Gordy the pig movie.

  • Tinkerville

    I've seen it. More than once. Such were the joys of babysitting. It features a talking pig named Gordy but you can only hear him speak if you're pure of heart. There was also country singing (I think the pig might've sung at some point) and people who wanted to kidnap Gordy for some inexplicable reason even though they didn't know he could talk because their hearts were evil and stuff. It was horrific and Pajiba should do a realtime review, is what I'm saying.

  • Bert_McGurt

    Isn't that the prequel to Canadian Bacon?
