South Asian Surrealism

Madraspantry
Love the decor at Madras Pantry. You feel like an extra in The Darjeeling Limited. And they sell Mango pulp, a treat I associate with Montreal and snowy walks home. The dosas are gluten-free, yet somehow remain tasty. My only quibble is too much potato, though I don't much like potatoes, so I guess any potato would be too much. Also, if you are a satellite restaurant (ie - Chuck, Grunt and Low's food was all cooked elsewheres, MP's food is all cooked at Kultura), don't tell me. I don't want to know that my food was shlepped across town and not made on the spot, expressly for me.

Pick You Up

H I used to listen to Don't Worry Be Happy when I needed a morning pick-me-up. But I've found something new! Who knew the SecState could shimmy? Also, she reminds me of my Bubby.

Just Julia

Julia-child-meryl-streep121872 I only want to watch the Julia parts of the movie, not the Julie ones. Guess I'll have to wait for the DVD.

From Teary to Tiery

Susan-boyle-paino-0909-de  Yes, the whole Susan Boyle affair has been a lowbrow/unibrow affair of the most depressing sort, but what a multi-layered redemption story. She looks so cute here I might crank up some treacly Lloyd Webber and do a joyful soft shoe. Then again, I might not.

Type Right

In-the-loop-poster
I like the handmade type on this poster. Also, I wish someone would refer to me as "scathingly funny...a smart sophisticated comedy." I could have it tattooed on my leg or something.

Current Suits

15354041 See, Bill is doing more than hanging out with Ron Burkle. Helping free CURRENT journos imprisoned in North Korea, wearing nice ties all the while. No word on whether Jong II gave Bubba a pair of stack heels as a ceremonial gift. But it's a step in the right direction.

Brownface Will Not Save You

2009_0806

So, you're a former SNL star searching for a comeback and it suddenly hits you: Bollywood! A billion people love that stuff, and just a rupee each would make you richer than Will Ferrell! But if it didn't work for Mike Myers, why is Chris Kattan doing it?
(Consolation: In 18 months Tarantino might come looking for Mango)

Original Polygraph

If it's true that guilty feet have got no rhythm, every courtroom ought to install a dancefloor directly before the bench.
