Alison Brie and Her Girls Put On Quite the Show, Folks
Our new guy, Josh Kurp, saw Alison Brie’s band, The Girls, perform this weekend in New York. It was the bands’ first public performance, and they played one of Donald Glover’s songs. However, it was our pal Joel Murphy who caught up with her and got the interview. It’s good. (HoboTrashcan)

I went on a little rant over on WG after some dipshit novelist claimed he understood why “The Big Bang Theory” performs so much better in the ratings than “Community.” His argument? Because he thinks “The Big Bang Theory” celebrates otherness while “Community” stars a guy who looks like he’d steal your lunch money. Please join me in pissing in that novelist’s Cheerios.

Pajiba darling David Tennant starred in a commercial for Virgin Media that gently and humorously exploits the “Doctor Who” association. The BBC, living up to the stereotype about uptight Brits with corn cobs up their asses, is furious. (Flick Filosopher)

One of the many tips I failed to include in that parenting piece last week is that, once your child reaches around three or four years of age, you will spend the better part of your life cutting off crusts. Why does your child make you do this? Because, contrary to scientific belief, babies ARE NOT born with a sense of right and wrong. They are sadistic little shits. (HuffPo)

Here’s a fun fact about myself that absolutely no one could possibly give a shit about: I eat, on average, 24 yogurts a week. Always from Trader Joe’s. I prefer it to Greek Yogurt, which I really don’t care for. However, if it’s your bag, Ben and Jerry’s has a line of Greek Yogurt out now. Hot Ink has a review. (Hot Ink)
The guy who directed Dear Zachary has a sci-fi film coming out, described as a cross between Memento and Groundhog Day. Hopefully, it doesn’t involve watching Dear Zachary in reverse over and over and over again because the inability to kill myself would swallow my soul. (Slashfilm)

Breaking: Facebook has just purchased Instagram for $1 billion. ONE BILLION DOLLARS.
So that people can more easily share photos on their iPhones within Facebook. Why are we all so obsessed with sharing photos, anyway? It’s as though our identities are now defined by the photos we share of ourselves. One bad angle, and our personal brand identities are RUINED.
