Gangnam Minus Gangnam of the Day: It seems now that we’ve moved beyond parodies and imitation for Gangnam Style, descending into bizarre postmodern art.


I’ve watched the original Gangnam Style video twice and no parody or dance-along videos. A lot of response videos to the huge viral successes strike me as thoughtless or simple in execution. This is not an example. I was cackling like a madman at most of this and hope that it starts a trend for other videos.

A month into living in Los Angeles, I have an internship at a production company on weekday mornings, a nannying gig weekday evenings, and regularly-scheduled havoc on weekends. We’re about to move into a bigger room in the same house located in Silverlake (which was just named “Hippest Neighborhood in America” by Forbes magazine, noted hipster publication). given that most of the time my life looks as upsetting as a baby falling down the stairs, this new lifestyle is a refreshing crisp LA desert fiery breeze.


This Is All Kinds Of Right of the Day: Best news of the day — Christopher Guest regulars Fred Willard, Michael McKean, and Ed Begley Jr. have joined the filmmaker’s upcoming HBO comedy series Family Tree, a documentary-style show that stars Chris O’Dowd “as a man who, after inheriting a mysterious box from a great aunt he never met and losing his job and his girlfriend, begins exploring his family heritage.”

Please, please, please let this mean that the rest of the Best In Show stars will join the project — Catherine O’Hara, Parker Posey, and Jane Lynch, are you listening?



CHVRCHES, “The Mother We Share”

If Drive was a happy movie, this would have run over the credits. I mean, if you listen to the lyrics then it may bum you out, but this sounds triumphant. Driving off into the sunrise, muscle car getting fuzzier, then a (real bloody) fist pops out the window to freeze the action. This song kicks in.

whatever, you get it
