Fun with Roth. #016:

Looking human. [#7]

And: Man, what a tease! That's like me posting "Met C Lo today. It was awesome. She ate some Wendy's, and we talked about Paul Thomas Anderson movies and the politics of celebrity suckling."

Innocence masquerading as confidence.

Steve Carrell and the start of a tectonic post-Friends shift. [Go to the Thursday section.]

Lots of fun in this piece, including the first-ever mention I've seen that Bob Odenkirk tried out for the American Brent!

Ace Ventura.

Premiere's 100 Greatest Movie Characters of All-Time.

If you are going to go comedic Carrey on this list, the choice is the cable guy, not the damn pet detective.

Telly Alert. #022:

Courtney will be "selling rock" (and intimidating the host) on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno tomorrow. Maybe she'll bring Frances Bean along? Sounds like Bean would be quite a talk show guest. Or maybe C will go all QT and drain five Appletinis (to wash down the In-N-Out grub!) in the green room before bounding out for the interview?

Think "Mother, Juggs, and Speed" meets another hilarious reference.

Loathsome and unfunny - David Cross checks in "web-site style".

Too good and weird.

As of this posting, nearly 78% of Americans responding to this survey either "don't care" about the future of Arrested Development or want Fox to "drop" it. GROSS.

If Arrested Development is cancelled, maybe we will at least get a DVD set that is a museum in CD form.
