  • 09:37:50: RT @filmforager: This movie sucks but this @beatonna comic about it ruuuules http://www.harkavagrant.com/index.php?id=133
  • 10:44:52: You guys. Syd Field was in a gang in high school. This shocks me.
  • 10:52:36: The tv in here is showing part eight of a Chinese documentary about bones dubbed into English. What were they thinking when they chose this?
  • 10:53:40: No objection to Chinese documentaries or people. Just wondering what led to the selection. I AM BORED.
  • 10:54:26: The most interesting thing is that like a half-dozen people here are named Elizabeth. Also I have a book. #notquiteamanofletters
  • 12:56:35: @weinmanj I think it comes from nervous studio heads eager to find a reason not to work with women?
  • 13:01:23: @weinmanj That's fair. But the idea is that they believe that women-centered movies don't have broad appeal. This can change that perception
  • 13:01:42: @weinmanj Which would allow more movies like this, movies NOT produced by Apatow, to get made.
  • 13:04:12: @weinmanj Don't recall who, but a female scrnwrtr tweeted recently that her movie pitches have been met with the same response...
  • 13:04:33: @weinmanj ..."we'll have to see how Bridesmaids does before we greenlight this." (Maybe you recall who this was)
  • 13:24:45: @willridesagain BEST DAY EVER MAN
  • 13:35:56: I follow TWO people who regularly retweet Insane Clown Posse. I must admit i did not expect this.
  • 13:41:40: @gastergack BE CAREFUL! Don't accidentally get your identity mixed up.
  • 13:49:27: @thedailyrobot you and comedian Kyle Kinane are kindred spirits: http://bit.ly/iWkfEP
  • 14:01:35: RT @tomlenk: Anyone manage a movie theater in LA county? Need to qualify my short for oscars...proving to be difficult!
  • 14:18:26: @gastergack Did you visit the Fitzgerald Theater while in Minneapolis?
  • 14:18:36: RT @StandardReview: Video: enemychan: I saw him do this at Meltdown once and I have been searching for a clip of this routine... http:// ...
  • 14:21:05: @weinmanj an argument I just saw made that rings somewhat true is that most women-driven comedies do not, paradoxically, have funny women...
  • 14:21:38: @weinmanj ...characters. Hence, Bridesmaids' importance above other female-driven comedies.
  • 14:21:50: @gastergack Well la-di-da
  • 14:22:28: @alicewalkington http://www.annehelenpetersen.com/?p=2519 if you don't already read this blog enjoy this post and bookmark the blog
  • 14:26:36: @JohnHollahan you sound like a John Cougar Mellencamp song right now
  • 14:30:10: @JohnHollahan Rejected line: You sound like a Toby Keith song. (Too mean)
  • 14:30:39: @mary_menville don't be ridiculous. there are no shows set in indiana (yes there are: The Middle. but it wasn't on the air when we met)
  • 14:30:56: @LoMel that is a successful wedding
  • 14:31:13: @mary_menville (also Parks & Rec. also same deal)
  • 14:31:27: @gastergack try harder
  • 14:34:39: @JohnHollahan I believe his work was already somewhat mentioned by both @gastergack and myself. TRY AGAIN SIR.
  • 14:37:08: @JohnHollahan It may have been. I guess we may never know - the primary source is lost to history.
  • 14:39:46: @JohnHollahan I suppose @gastergack just gave us his answer, but an author's comment on his work is hardly definitive, wouldn't you agree?
  • 17:12:29: The way @JackRudolph60 is tweeting, he seems like he may actually be @TheStevenWeber.
  • 17:20:01: @neon_creole http://nyti.ms/iJlJGM
  • 17:29:10: Is there any reason Lin-Manuel Miranda is not starring on a TV show right now? That he created? FX, think this over.
  • 17:31:16: @TheStevenWeber Nah, I didn't think so, but he seems to combine the character from the show with you on twitter. I enjoy all three.
  • 18:01:56: One of the people who hates women, gays, and the poor will not be running for the Republican ticket. As it turns out, several others will.
  • 18:03:15: @tvoti Have you considered reviewing it the way This Recording reviews GoT? (http://bit.ly/mtYp45)
  • 18:44:20: TV series pitch: A TV writer-producer works on a pilot that never gets picked up to series. Every season, different pilot. This could rock?
  • 18:46:49: @inkcanada I meant it ironically, then accidentally fell in love with the idea.
  • 18:48:01: Goddamn it Netflix. I did enjoy watching Troll 2, but if I give it five stars you'll only recommend movies to me ironically.
  • 21:21:46: According to this biopic I just watched, this one artist was driven by a need for his father's approval! Guess the biopic.
  • 21:46:41: @alicewalkington and I just burped at the same time. We're on the same cycle.
  • 21:54:10: RT @JohnHollahan: @MuffMacGuff Walk Hard?
  • 21:54:12: RT @gastergack: @MuffMacGuff Amadeus #motelinternet
  • 21:54:55: I am still taking bets. It is neither Amadeus nor Walk Hard THOUGH BOTH FIT THE CRITERIA. I will also rule out Walk the Line.
  • 21:55:15: @JohnHollahan yeah that was mainly the point. dunno if i should just tell everyone. it will be anticlimactic.
  • 21:58:34: RT @gastergack: @JohnHollahan @MuffMacGuff Passion of the Christ
  • 21:58:53: @gastergack i am unlikely to ever watch that.
  • 22:20:28: Anyway it was James Dean, starring Franco
  • 22:21:13: @neon_creole how often is one invited to a house party in the hills? Go to there

  • 06:23:14: One of the great things about MASH is that it always knew that people shipped its male leads, and had them openly flirt on the show.
  • 07:16:46: Blythe Danner's on this episode of MASH, giving credence to the old saying, "Blythe Danner was young once."
  • 07:17:29: "I knew of Blythe Danner before she was in Meet The Parents." - everyone on my feed over forty. "Whatever, pops." - me
  • 07:22:00: Also, it's a shame Al Jolson isn't famous anymore (not really), because Al Jolson impressions are both easy and hilarious.
  • 07:24:24: @josh_a_g I'm writing an SNL sketch where Jolson meets Eisenhower. "This is my wife, Mamie." "MAAAAAMMMMMMYYY!!" "Please leave."
  • 07:32:31: @josh_a_g If Wiig doesn't get assigned it. Armisen as Jolson would be a good commentary on the nature of blackface (no chance).
  • 07:35:24: Establishing shots on TAXI that have the World Trade Center in them. #thingsilovebutcouldntexplainwhy
  • 07:36:52: @becs1024 and NewsRadio, which I think took place in WTC?
  • 07:38:50: @becs1024 I always wanted to write a fic where the NR cast has to evacuate on 9/11 and broadcasts from the SN studio
  • 07:39:17: @becs1024 NOT THAT THIS MAKES LOGISTIC SENSE
  • 07:39:54: @becs1024 Oh, and the story would include the mayor of NYC dealing with it on Spin CIty
  • 08:08:05: I just claimed to love teenagers on the Internet. This is kind of like like listening to Elvis and saying "The mid-century south! Love it."
  • 08:10:11: The Internet teen in question, incidentally, was @OfficialRochelle and her @djearworm cover. I know. #myprevioustweet
  • 08:33:28: Real friendship is when you're both singing along to "Fuck You" and you know you both won't sing the n-word without saying.
  • 08:53:31: @davidmeirrobot The best part of that video is the backup singer costumes: Kirk, TJ Hooker, and Shit My Dad Says
  • 08:58:48: @alicewalkington http://bit.ly/ieWe9k
  • 10:37:48: You get a nearly 1:1 matchup of characters if you compare MASH with The Office (S1-7).
  • 12:07:31: @weinmanj Doesn't that sort of suggest that unless a show has a good reason to be single camera it should default to multi?
  • 12:07:49: @weinmanj Maybe Amanda Peet et. al. are just more comfortable in the format.
  • 12:09:20: @weinmanj Elaborate? (I'm not entirely hostile to the idea, just confused)
  • 12:11:11: @weinmanj I don't deny that many shows SHOULD be multicam. I just don't see either format as a default.
  • 12:11:53: @weinmanj Isn't that the point of ABC's music scoring?
  • 12:14:42: I know everyone already #ff @Movies_in_LA, right? More importantly, check out their EXTREMELY easy-to-use website: http://bit.ly/m4hVDi
  • 12:15:13: @weinmanj I get what you're saying. That does make some sense, and could account for some lower viewing numbers.
  • 12:19:15: @weinmanj Well, you and I both know in advance what we're watching. Is there evidence of viewer confusion, or is it just expected?
  • 12:30:11: @noelrk where I stand is: I suspect @weinmanj is right, but it makes me mad
  • 12:37:18: @noelrk ha, yeah, and not that HE makes me angry. He just tends to be a bearer of pragmatic unpleasant news.
  • 12:37:52: @mountain_goats saw it, it's great, you'll love it.
  • 12:40:50: Just referred to Salvadoran food as Mexican food WHILE looking at a Salvadoran flag. Is this racist of me y/n?
  • 12:48:54: @knitaround ship short for relationship. Means fans root for romance
  • 12:53:17: My best friend since I was 5 just graduated law school. Overcome with nachas, fear for the law's future. #mazeltovjohn
  • 12:57:39: @alicewalkington is a pusher. A DRUG PUSHER.
  • 12:58:04: RT @NikkiFinke: ABC Renews 'Happy Endings' http://dlvr.it/RcxLy
  • 13:36:27: @gastergack which ones?
  • 13:37:04: RT @katebornstein: "Half Men" is trending. Not at all what I thought it wuz gonna be.
  • 13:53:47: Why did this person start following me? MT @cv2012: Instead of liberal, try libtard? It's deliciously un-PC. What's not to like
  • 18:25:33: @ansalong uh oh! Looks like we approach Cee-Lo from different directions. WILL WE GET PAST THIS??? (yes)??????
  • 18:27:14: I accidentally prepared dinner too early so I'm gonna pretend I finished it a minute after @Mary_menville wakes from her nap.
  • 18:59:53: @ansalong you're over... OUR FRIENDSHIP? this is the most divisive event in history.
  • 19:19:31: @ansalong did you just favorite the story of our disintigrating friendship, to remind yourself of why this can never be? ICE KOLD.
  • 19:22:13: @ansalong you live under my twitter-roof, you follow my twitter-rules, young lady. you're not leaving this house twitter-dressed like that!
  • 19:34:41: @ansalong Sure. Here's $5 twitter. Enjoy your movie. I hear that Doris Day's in a new one!
  • 19:46:20: @ansalong i certainly hope so. WHEW
  • 20:53:02: @spillman the main overlap of Odd Future audiences and Royal Wedding attendees
  • 20:55:30: In honor of my friend John graduating law school today, I'm watching The Paper Chase. &lt;3 the scene where John Houseman yells @ Orson Welles.
  • 20:56:15: More to the point: What #Community characters correspond with what #PaperChase characters? #studygroupsinfilmandtelevision
  • 21:06:05: @weinmanj For a movie about law school, there are a LOT of scenes of shirtless dudes chilling. #strayobservation #givethepeoplewhattheywant
  • 21:11:55: @LoMel YOU JUST RUINED TWITTER FOR ME
  • 21:12:17: @weinmanj John Houseman was the Gary Burghoff of his time
  • 21:24:42: @weinmanj watching that opening sequence, i'm not convinced i can think of a better way to sell a show about contract law class?
  • 21:54:52: How weird would it be if they made Stay in School PSAs for, like, med school?

  • 00:17:00: @pattonoswalt great show! thanks for coming! i had never seen you live, and it was awesome.
  • 06:40:14: I'm real tired and as a result I became so bad at computer solitaire that they took my computer solitaire license away and SPIT ON IT!!!!!!!
  • 06:55:35: RT @tvoti: Huckabee must hope no one watches these in rapid succession. Reagan and Hitler's dialogue is... strangely similar. http://is. ...
  • 07:43:46: Ate an apple, but wasn't near a trash so I put the core in an envelope, and then pretended I was gonna mail it to someone! Lol!!!
  • 08:49:22: I'm in a room full of computers, and one of them keeps making a noise like an asthmatic wheezing. Every time I wonder if it was me.
  • 09:29:19: Do commercials for Axe represent the biggest gap between real life and advertising?
  • 09:29:39: I mean, the idea that women are attracted to basically scented Red Bull seems a stretch. #myprevioustweet
  • 09:48:51: I think Axe is less realistic. RT @thedailyrobot: @MuffMacGuff biggest gap between reality and advertising http://bit.ly/kwLgQj
  • 11:21:49: RT @timheidecker: If you blink you'll miss me but I'm in #Bridesmaids and it's actually a really funny movie. I feel comfortable support ...
  • 11:23:42: @JRRnotTolkien @neon_creole @theotherwillis have we considered Marten Holder Weiner?
  • 11:35:58: @DiscoUnited I did not find this helpful: http://bit.ly/lIAwM6
  • 11:42:05: We all understand that "freestyling" is not a synonym for "rapping," right? Jon Stewart didn't freestyle last night, you guys.
  • 11:52:36: I wish the writers of Splitsider would spend less time talking about how weird they are for knowing about pop culture. That's the job.
  • 13:02:36: Either this Subway is playing Hap Palmer's "Turn on the Music" on a constant loop or I'm going crazy, or both.
  • 16:09:43: @dearcohen Is it sad alone? Because, uh, I do it every time.
  • 16:24:53: @filmforager http://bit.ly/jeGmpr
  • 16:28:28: Wake me when someone writes something about Community without mentioning that they find Alison Brie attractive. I WILL LITERALLY BE ASLEEP.
  • 17:02:46: @JRRnotTolkien I was quoting the scene.
  • 17:21:49: So the other day when I mentioned wanting an old-Hollywood ONTD? http://www.annehelenpetersen.com/
  • 18:46:28: @alicewalkington make no mistake: I have read that
  • 20:50:40: RT @MattAlbie60: It's important that we pull all-nighters at Studio 60, not because we have to, but because it's a cool thing to tell re ...
  • 20:55:54: @alicewalkington & @dearcohen didn't believe it, but @thedailyrobot knows the truth too. http://twitpic.com/4wvye0
  • 20:59:57: @weinmanj If he's written differently, it may prove to be a good career move for Kutcher. He may want a new public persona.
  • 21:00:11: @JRRnotTolkien when you gettin out tonight?
  • 21:05:37: @weinmanj I have family who loves the show. I wonder what they think of this (don't really want to ask though).
  • 21:09:10: @weinmanj I guess I'm lucky that my life doesn't include people tweeting their TV opinions at me whenever I say anything.
  • 21:09:28: @weinmanj (Lucky I have no equivalent of me tweeting at me)
  • 21:09:58: @weinmanj In any event, you suppose this will lose the extant audience and not bring in a new one?
  • 21:12:30: @weinmanj he may draw in fans of camera commercials?
  • 21:33:11: @JRRnotTolkien curious. Have a good night!
  • 21:49:25: @Lov2500 so true

  • 06:17:19: "From director Karl Lagerfeld comes a short film series starring Rachel Bilson and introducing Magnum ice cream." - Hulu ad.
  • 06:17:45: If you are trying to confuse me, Hulu ad, mission accomplished. #myprevioustweet
  • 06:24:28: @becs1024 i've never tried one because i worried they're for superfamous celebrities like web miniseries' rachel bilson
  • 06:25:40: @alicewalkington http://bit.ly/lXKXYm THE WORLD IS FUCKED UP BRO
  • 06:34:05: @becs1024 damn bro maybe karl lagerfeld should make a miniseries clearly cribbing from black swan starring YOU
  • 06:56:26: To claim I liked the Hangover, @thedailyrobot quoted a conversation we had when I saw it. (cont in next tweet)
  • 06:57:05: (cont) "June 16, 2009 4:56:47 PM @MuffMacGuff: every single thing ... is awesome, ... all of the movie" I, uh, can't deny saying these words
  • 07:27:12: "A lot of people think of me as the white Stefan Urquelle." - something I've decided to start claiming.
  • 07:28:28: @willridesagain so disappointing! We'll just have to plan on a less formal visit.
  • 08:45:58: @alicewalkington http://avc.lu/l74zvg
  • 09:02:41: @weinmanj they could call it "Season One of LOST"
  • 09:13:52: @becs1024 #gowest
  • 09:25:15: @becs1024 it recently occurred to me what a lie those "America Runs on Dunkin" ads were, since I had learned that DD is only eastie.
  • 09:27:46: @becs1024 yo, road trip to vegas definitely. #gowest may be the impetus #CafeDisco needs to buy a very fast car with no top
  • 09:29:01: @becs1024 pick up christina ricci, of course. #FearandLoathingorBuffalo66 #youdecide
  • 09:29:22: @dearcohen see, but why get John Goodman for those ads, rather than someone more Bostonian? Like John Adams.
  • 09:31:38: @dearcohen explaining your favorite show, Treme
  • 09:33:08: @dearcohen that is a ridiculous apology. a real apology would be AN ATTEMPT TO IMPROVE. #watchtheshieldandtaxiandfishingwithjohn
  • 09:34:30: @dearcohen if you don't watch Treme NOW how will you know what to write your senior thesis on?
  • 09:35:40: I agree with everyone who's into today's Martha Graham Google logo. It's awesome.
  • 10:20:12: @dearcohen I'd actually watch Fishing with John first. Rewatched an episode the other day; such a perfect series.
  • 10:40:20: "'Ello. I just moved from London! You are my American cousin. Sorry about how your brother, my other cousin, died. Can I live with you?"
  • 10:40:36: (Hugh Grant on 2 1/2 Men) #myprevioustweet
  • 10:45:48: @weinmanj I don't know if they'd make it work, but they'd certainly do it.
  • 10:47:28: @weinmanj Fair enough. Also: How do you think they would have handled 8 Simple Rules?
  • 10:51:07: @weinmanj it's difficult to remember a time when adam arkin was thought of as young. (similar situation with rob reiner)
  • 12:06:28: @zacharylittle I just disagreed with you on tumblr but I want you to know it's NOT because I don't think you're a cool guy or a feminist.
  • 12:06:53: @zacharylittle I think you are both, I just disagree a little about something. We still cool? Good. [We haven't spoken in years]
  • 12:32:09: Um, Tina Fey's story about hearing 30 Rock got a full season pickup made me cry. #bossypants #aspiringwriterfeelings
  • 12:34:33: @zacharylittle AGREED. Let's turn this thing into something, you know?
  • 12:39:34: Attention! @zacharylittle and I are now the main two members of a band called The Feminist Vacuums. Pls send audition mp3s via twitter.
  • 13:00:37: @MattAlbie60 @DannyTripp60 Tell @SimonStiles60 he should rewatch clips of Casey McCall. It'll help his impression.
  • 13:24:24: @gnubardt please tweet the magic card names you slip in?
  • 15:49:46: This is true. This movie's fucking great. See it! MT @LoMel: http://tinyurl.com/3d773k5
  • 15:53:59: Mexican Police Drama Called Blatant Pro-Government Propaganda by Critics http://tinyurl.com/3pm2rpz (Um, true in America too)
  • 17:15:17: @weinmanj you mean as a crossover? because that would be great. the first two-series crossover finale?
  • 18:05:10: Dang, Edward Herrman has been turning up in like every movie I'm watching lately. Grampa Gilmore, you sure have had a career!
  • 18:24:27: @ansalong it doesn't get better
  • 20:05:19: @becs1024 got you an early housewarming gift http://lockerz.com/s/100860596

  • 06:18:23: I don't think anyone figured that so much of this season of How I Met Your Mother would involve a real estate battle.
  • 07:25:31: Alan Simpson would be wacky as hell if he didn't work off the public dime, you know? http://huff.to/jUEZNG

  • 09:01:00: @johnmoe Ann &Nancy are the 1stwomen dockworkers in B'more. Ann &lt;3s it, Nancy aspires 2 greater things.Norman Lear produces. #70sHeartTVShow
  • 09:05:53: @weinmanj It does seem odd that networks don't do some intentional 13-episode seasons.
  • 09:09:23: @weinmanj I suppose so. Though a company could just make two 13-episode series to air in the same timeslot, split up by a month or so.

  • 10:19:03: @weinmanj I wonder if Fryman's Emmy snubs are more sexist than 4cameraist. Since 2005, what multicam directors other than her deserved noms?
  • 10:30:28: @weinmanj figured you'd have more details. just considered the idea, didn't know for certain.

  • 11:17:09: @mxjustinVbond hope it's not rude to ask - would you consider Kiki to have been a drag act, now that you're more centered with your gender?
  • 11:17:49: @mxjustinVbond ask b/c i recommended Kiki & Herb as a "drag act" before I knew you were trans.
  • 11:56:30: I was just mentally composing a tweet that began "I sincerely, more than anything, wish that..." but then forgot what I was gonna say. Help?
  • 11:56:59: @mxjustinVbond got it. didn't want to get it wrong. big fan. sorry if i offended.

  • 20:06:20: @madjoy what actual impact will that have on global terrorism? And why couldn't we try him?

  • 20:08:11: @madjoy I don't know why I'd trust the military to not kill him if they could
  • 20:13:23: @madjoy maybe so. But, at the risk of being too Jewish about it, no deaths are cause for celebration. People are reacting with bloodlust.
  • 20:17:21: @madjoy obviously a trial's not an option now. I just find it unlikely that it never was.
  • 20:19:51: @madjoy thank you too. It's nice to occasionally disagree with someone smart and thoughtful.

  • 22:12:40: @gastergack @JohnHollahan I actually met someone (no joke) who said she'd worked in editorial on ToL "for the middle years" of the process.
  • 22:18:04: @JohnHollahan @gastergack Indeed. The original cut was seven hours long and a thinly-veiled remake of On The Waterfront [joke].
  • 22:18:31: @gastergack @JohnHollahan The book's always better than the movie.

  • 22:28:38: @gastergack I'd like to nominate "Getting arrested at antiwar protests" Martin Sheen
  • 22:31:24: @JohnHollahan @gastergack That's a Sheen the jury'll be out on until history makes its call.
  • 22:33:07: @gastergack @JohnHollahan ugh I think Wahlberg's the only one who comes out of that movie looking good.
  • 23:35:28: Just finished watching Badlands for the first time ever. You guys know this is a really good movie? Someone should talk about this director.
  • 23:36:23: Based on my watching "All That Jazz" and "Arthur," Netflix figures I'd like "Restrepo." I feel like it's mad at me for not being serious.
