SINISTER: Egypt, Tunisia, Iran, China… eventually a savvier government will get temporary internet blackout 100% right, based on what they’re observing now.

Regardless of religion, this photo is going to be printed out and hung in every Christianist home in the USA (it’ll replace the framed Thomas Kinkade).

Police are (reportedly) momentarily stopping the teargas/bullet barrage as protesters quietly pray in the streets! Fascinating. #egypt

I liked Giorgos Lanthimos’ DOGTOOTH! Finally… a film that shows all families are secretly functional. The daughter’s birthday party dance scene is a new classic.

Have you had a paranormal, UFO or alien abduction experience? Are you a total ham? PITCH! would like to hear from you!

I loved Gasper Noe’s INTO THE VOID! Its style didn’t precede it. Moving. I puked! Made me wanna re-vist Tokyo, but not drugs (or illness).

Chilly scenes of winter…

Well, Harry Baer in Fassbinder’s GODS OF THE PLAGUE is real little honey, ain’t he?

Paul Ryan may be young, hot and a “rising GOP star.” But his rushed, monotone speech sounds less sincere than Sarah Palin. So 00’s. #SOTU

Brandon, PA got one clap. # SOTU

Comments Off

When Obama said “…some of those soldiers are gay” it was by far the most genuinely realistic moment of the night. #shockofthenew #SOTU

The Eisenhower joke went right over my head. But I don’t really get fish humor. #SOTU

Comments Off

All of Obama’s tech innovation talk will really jive with all the 80yr-olds who read Drudge & think Google makes iPhone apps that can read your mind. #SOTU

Comments Off

Did you see Boehner’s eyes light up when Obama started talking about roof workers, then drop again when he mentioned “solar shingles?” #SOTU

Comments Off

On CBS, Katie Couric was giggling about new seating arrangements like it was a boldface-name map of Indochine’s tables in Spy, c.1989. #SOTU

Comments Off

Same old tune. Obama sounds smart, Biden’s hair is lint, Boehner is orange. Hopefully Bachmann won’t break stereotype as comic relief. #SOTU

Woo-hoo! Just landed our next editor for Feb 15th PITCH! She’s a real humdinger…this one’s going to be particularly surreal.

The recent 00’s decade should be known as the “If you haven’t got it, flaunt it” decade.

I’m *finally* getting around to reading Roger Ebert’s recently posted screenplay for WHO KILLED BAMBI? Two pages in, I love the character “Proby, the nation’s leading and most uncanny trend-spotter. His motto: Now is Then.”

The days are progressively each getting a little bit longer now… bliss!

Recorded a fun piece yesterday (on ‘fake writing’) with Kevin Allison for a future Risk! podcast… all done via live laptops, microphones & Skype!

My favorite part of last night was after finally leaving the evening’s festivities… making my way back to Grand Central in a white tuxedo covered in blood. Best street/subway comments, ever!
