Dr. Dog - Heart it Races Still pretty excellent.
Hey, I saw your ad and will be able to help you out. The best thing to do for dry wall holes is to tape over the entire hole with strips of duct tape, and then paint over the duct tape. If you have wallpaper, I could just put wallpaper over the hole. That would be even easier. After the repair, nobody should lean up on the wall or it will probably tear again. I suggest hanging a picture over...
Is Ice Cream Still Ice Cream If It Doesn't Melt,... →
Butterscotch Velvet (ew?) and Chocolate-y Goodness (creative) are Coldstone’s new, melt-resistant ice creams. I disapprove.

Food from twittering-trucks, so hot right now. Dosa Truck serves LA with mobile Indian food. I am intrigued, but Koolhaus is still #1 on my “to eat” list.

Wow. If I still worked at Yahoo, I’d be out of a job.
I Have to Write a Bio and It's Really Hard
Can’t I just “crowdsource” this? But knowing the internet, it would probably end up sounding like: “Sarah Brin was born in 1986, in poop, CA. As a young child, she sandwiches, beef sandwiches. She’s going to grad school to study how LOST is the best show about synaesthesia. Play her out, piano cat.”
BCD Tofu House - Koreatown →
I’ve never been to this 24-hour tofu house, but you could probably call me in the middle of the night and persuade me to go.

Coolhaus Product Specifications →
Ice Cream Sandwiches: - Frank Behry - Mintimalism - Mies Vanilla Rohe - Richard Meyer Lemon Ginger - Oatmeal Cinnamoneo Interesting to see the heightened popularity of boutique ice-creameries / cupcakeries during a recession. It’s all about comfort, probably.
Urban Hikes 2009: Leimert Park →
The Architecture and Design museum has been planning these really cool hikes around urban L.A. The next one is on August 9th, and there’ll be ice cream sandwiches.
Finally! A movie about growing up Inuit! Dear Lemon Lima did an excellent job of avoiding pandery-Junoesque dialogue. Oh, a funny, thoughtful, relateable film. I’m worried about how they’ll market it though, ‘cause it’s not just a movie for ladies, but the marketing collateral has got a really ladylike aesthetic. Except for this trailer, and this trailer is bad.

WAIT. I could have seen Broken Social Scene while doing yoga? I missed that? Anyway, these fake music festivals are funny.

Um. Morgan Spurlock is casting The Simpsons on Ice?
Awesome Stuff That's Happened
- Zach Galifinakis and the director of Visioneers came to my screening at 826. My first words to Z.G. were “Do you want to hide? Because we could hide you.” And then we had root beer floats. - I’m 826’s volunteer of the month (of August). - We won Best Intern Team and Best Use of Photoshop! Do you know how PSYCHED I am about my impending free haircut and dinner at the...
Director: Thom Yorke Wrote New Song for New Moon... →
Thom Yorke AND Bon Iver have written songs for the Twilight sequel. That’s okay. Maybe it’ll inspire a whole generation of pre-teens to like less awful stuff.

This seems like the appropriate time to start Banditos West, or a different incarnation altogether. I’m just sorta shy, you know?

Zeitgeist? I mean, I guess it always comes up, but the issue of postmodern literature has been a particularly hot topic since Friday. The Crying of Lot 49 is NOT on this list, but Hamlet definitely is.
