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?
