Dear Anonymous Williamsburg Hipster,

Against my better judgment I visited your neighborhood this weekend. As my friend and I left the newest cool bar there, my friend asked you where the best place to get a car was in the area.
"Where are you going?" you asked quizzically.
"Kensington," I said.
"Kensington?" you asked, as if I had just named a town on Long Island. "Where is that?"
"On the south side of The Park," I replied haughtily.
"McCarren Park?" You asked.

This video is for you: Stimulatin' Kensington. Get your ass off the L and G trains.

Which one of these men will play Howard K. Stern in the TV movie?

If you can't decide, you're in luck: they're all Chris Devlin, who will be portraying Howard K. in The Anna Nicole Story. He did tell TMZ that he imagines Howard's time with Anna was like "being in a hot tub full of whip cream -- on the Titianic." (Is that spelling mistake on purpose? Titty-anic?" Wow.)

Why Michael Chiklis is hot.

Just banish all memories of The Commish and watch this scene from The Shield where Vic gets it on with a Domestic Violence–Shelter Runner (what was her name again?).

I try to oblige

Since someone recently found my blog by typing "mo rocca cock bulge" into google, I thought I would try to give the reader(s) what she (they) want. This is the best I could find. It's kind of hard to tell, because he's wearing white pants, but I think if you hold your face close enough to the screen you can see it. Enjoy!

"arrrgg! I'mmm gotta get'cha! ahhh ha ha!"

Since all of you seemed to love that post about Brooklyn in the summer, I thought you'd like to know that I can hear outside my window, some dad chasing his little girl around much to her delight. She's shrieking and laughing, and he is making noises like a pirate.

Dear Readers,

Perhaps you've seen the advertisements on the Lifetime network for 3 nights of the movie Sweet Home Alabama. "Reese Witherspoon is marrying McDreamy!" it proclaims. This sounds promising. Could be good, you think. That Patrick Dempsey is awful handsome, and Reese is so cute.

That's what I thought, and I watched this movie in its entirety, waiting and waiting for even one scene I could enjoy. But it's bad. It's so bad I rated it only one star ("I Hated It") on netflix, a rating shared only with What Women Want, Batman & Robin, Rocky V, Coyote Ugly, American Pie 2, and Little Man (another movie I was forced to watch on the bus to Boston). Patrick Dempsey doesn't even get the girl at the end. And Reese as at her most annoying. The only good reason to watch this movie is if you've seen that Johnny Cash movie, so you can marvel at what a better actress Reese is now than when she first started out. Because she (and Dempsey, for that matter) are both horrible is this boring, unheartfelt film filled with every stereotype in the book.

I know it's raining out, but stay away from Lifetime people, for your own good.

My childhood cat died today, age 15. One of those rare animals you love more than most people.

Like a ditzy, low self-esteem Rhoda

I don't really know what to say about the huge disappointment that was Thursday night's Grey's Anatomy/Addison spinoff. And it's gotten bad reviews everywhere (the NY Times has a particularly apt one that blames Ally McBeal). But why is everyone so disappointed? What did we expect out of a network TV spinoff? I guess what upsets me is that Addison Shepherd (oh, sorry, Montgomery) was a truly likable character: she had brains and balls and wasn't afraid to go after what she wanted, even though crappy things have happened to her. I thought a spin-off with her as the main character could be the beginning of a one-hour drama that didn't show women as zany and sex-crazed. I thought it was cool she was going to have a baby on her own. Then she got into the elevator and it starting talking to her...and it wasn't Lorenzo Music. Sigh. When is Rhoda coming to DVD?

Grey's Antomy: Addy does Alex

Well, just in time for the big two-parter Addison spin-off episode, here is the handy Grey's Anatomy: Who's Done Whom spreadsheet. (and I think I finally figured out the technical glitches, so it should be nice and big—try clicking on it). Though I love Addison, I'm not sure I'm going to be able to commit to her new spin-off, even though Taye Diggs is in it, and I feel sorry for him since Daybreak and Kevin Hill bombed (actually, he kind of deserved the Kevin Hill thing, I mean, he was starring opposite a former ANTM. But I digress). But if they make it good enough, I just might have to stick around to watch Addison get her groove back.

That's right, folks, I made the pun. I promise not to do it again.
