I saw this (and on Sunday too!). Went in loving Conan, came out thinking he's actually a giant fucking tool.

I'm not sure what to think about this movie. Granted, it's a very small slice of a (sort of, all that money had to help) trying time in Conan O'Brien's life, but he comes off as a giant, needy tool. He's mean to everyone he works with, he can't stop hitting people, and there's a very painful backstage scene with Jack McBrayer, where Conan relentlessly hassles him for being a typical yokel and then says "Sorry, if that was too much," to which Jack replies "Too late man." At one point Conan's staff saves him from the after show public pressing of the flesh with fans, he insists on doing it, and then is kind of rude to them and after a bit flings himself into a limo complaining of how put upon he is. I don't know. I used to think this guy was a sweetheart. Now I suspect he's an enormous needy dick. Fascinating movie though.

Pho Bac is literally underneath my new apartment windows. It looks like a place they would not let me in (old fat white woman), is it good?

Wasn't this post about Weiner? Also, well said Dan.

Yeah, I'm in agreement with Jen. Respect should be earned, not dole out for fear of repercussions. And we are what, a trillion dollars in debt to China? A trillion. omg.

The only person I've observed using Bing in my office is also the laziest. Waste of skin uses waste of browser, go figure.

The new True Grit is fucking awesome. But of course it would be, it's a Coen Bros movie. It's maybe not my very favorite CB movie, but come on, that's like comparing diamonds with more diamonds. Jeff Bridges, I'll happily chew through your dungarees any day. Sunlight, here I come.
