Also, fuck Monday.

I Respect His Fandom

Confession: I never had a Van Halen phase.

This is weird, because it seemed like every guy around me in middle school and junior high was a fan.
I definitely had a run where I thought KISS was the best thing ever, but am kind of drawing a blank from the late 70’s until I heard Murmur.
I probably listened to lots of Top 40, with a touch of Devo.
Anyway, Mr. Nicolai is one of Austin’s finest. Rock on, EVH.

Hello … Zip Codes …

Wayne Knight CRUSHES IT.

From The A.V. Club

If the ad seems funnier than it has any right to in this context, that’s because it was written by Seinfeld alum (and Veep showrunner) David Mandel, no stranger to the tics that made Newman so memorable. According to Entertainment Weekly, it was Mandel who convinced a reluctant Knight to reprise the role.

For Squirrels

The guitar player in this band, Travis, is a friend of mine, and was in the band we put together from guys at work. He was one of the two survivors of an accident on the way home from a CMJ showcase back in the 90s. They tried to soldier on for a couple of years, changing names and putting out a really good, but much heavier album that their label promptly forgot about. This trailer is evidently a teaser to try and get funding for a documentary.
