Finally I can sleep at night! The Daily News has reported that after much speculation (mostly by supercilious Williamsburg hipster douches -- whom I count myself among -- and bougie Park Slope moms), the new, Brooklyn-bound cast of The Real World will hunker down in the neighborhood of Downtown Brooklyn. This news makes me both relieved and bummed. On the one hand, I effing hate when TV crews get all up in my business. I've experienced first-hand their disruptive nature, first when I was forced by default to be involved in the short-lived MTV show I'm From Rolling Stone at my previous place of employ, and more recently at my neighborhood watering hole when my attempts to pound Pabst Blue Ribbon in peace were thwarted by the presence of a crew filming the new Michael Cera (swoon) vehicle Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist. (Sorry about that run-on sentence; I had a lot of name-dropping to cram in there!) Living in New York, you're automatically subjected to some measure of film crew-related annoyance because, well, people film here. But when it gets in the way of me doing my job, or worse, working on my burgeoning alcohol addiction, it is a problem.
Yay! The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre is hosting live stage shows of 30 Rock and Saturday Night Live, the latter hosted by Michael Cera!
Except...boo! I didn't know about it until it was already sold out! What a roller coaster of emotions!
On the other hand, I do have tickets for the ASSSSCAT show on Sunday night. If Michael Cera is in town on Saturday, maybe he'll hang around on Sunday? Dare I dream?
Speaking of Michael Cera and SNL, did you hear that one of the episodes that got cancelled due to the strike was to have been hosted by Jonah Hill? Superboo.
After the latest season of The Bachelorette ended with finalist Jason Mesnick getting majorly snubbed by the titular DeAnna Pappas, there was such an outpouring of sentiment from
desperate sympathetic single gals that the producers at ABC saw fit to create a special site to handle the overflow. Now, in a move modeled after the cinematic masterpiece that is Sleepless In Seattle, romantic hopefuls and well-wishers can get in touch with the scorned bachelor directly via fanofjason.com
I know we're pretty gushing fangirly about Jon Hamm on this blog, which can be a bit nauseating at times, but when he does stuff like this... it's just hard to fall out of love with him. While making the what must have been excruciating press whore rounds for the tiny part he had in The Day the Earth Stood Still Sucks (nailed it), Hamm stopped by the greatest online fake interview series around, Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis. It's not quite as awkwardly hilarious as the Michael Cera one, but Hamm is a great sport and is able to keep up with Zach's comedic prowess, which bodes very well for his upcoming 30 Rock stint. Also, he likes websites! So, you know, he's basically our soulmate because we are a website! Yeah, I don't get it either. It's Monday. Clips for both the Hamm and Cera editions below!
