  • So if I want to see The Great Gatsby—check out the trailer here —I have to watch it in 3-D? Why does this keep happening? And can somebody make it stop?
  • Saturday Night Live‘s wrap party looks like it was a friendly, rollicking old-school kegger full of really likable famous people.  How much fun does Kristin Wiig appear to be having doing a karaoke version of “I Love Rock and Roll” with the Foo Fighters? With Andy Samberg and Jason Sudeikis on backup? What part of that could be not fun? No part!

    Your words: “So if I want to see The Great Gatsby—check out the trailer here —I have to see it in 3-D? Why does this keep happening? And can somebody make it stop?” … Echoed my own thoughts exactly when I opened up the movie trailer! So I watched it all and got reasonably sucked in, mostly due to Baz (I could give or take DiCaprio and Maguire), and then came the words 3D and I instantly lost all desire to see it. Don’t they know about my astigmatism?!

    They just do it so they can charge more. Or so I concluded after Avatar. If there’s a point to it, I didn’t notice.

    Maybe it’s a guy thing?

  3. Okay – that video of my BFF (aka Kristin Wiig, DUH) was uh-mazing. Seriously. What could be better than K Wiig and my secret boyfriend (D Grohl – DUH) doing I Love Rock & Roll? Not much, I can tell you that. Kristin, Dave…call me…
