Reason to love NYC # 529
When we first adopted Moe he used to have playdates with Norah Jones and her dog Jack. Unfortunately that ended when they moved to Brooklyn. He made a new friend today, though, a little chihuahua that my old neighborhood pal Eek just adopted. Eek was worried because she has been hostile to other dogs but she and Moe got along immediately. We’re going to hang out again tomorrow. Such...

brianvan: fullcredit: thegreg: Congrats to Anne Hathaway on her first Oscar… THERE IS NO JUSTICE IN THIS WORLD Everyone remember that time Judy Garland hit rock bottom and got fucked with a double-sided dildo? No? Yeah well wait til you see how he works the double-headed dildo into the film he’s currently making of “Noah’s Ark”.
Maximum wife trolling achieved
My lady has been working insane hours, constantly traveling and generally busting her ass as the co-owner of a boutique PR firm. She planned to be home early tonight but had a last minute call and is still in the office. I just emailed asking her to hurry home as I miss Moe.
I finally figured out Greta Gerwig
She fantasizes about being Noah Baumbach’s leading lady, which explains her performances. What I can’t figure out is why anyone is still casting her. Okay, I’ll give Whit Stillman a pass. Everyone else should be embarrassed, though.
Trying Adobo Chicken for the first time
Mixed up soy sauce, rice vinegar, chicken broth, coconut milk, fish sauce, pepper, lots of garlic and a pinch of sesame oil, brought it to a boil, and poached chunks of chicken breast and assorted peppers in it. Now finishing the chicken and peppers under the broiler while boiling the sauce down to a reduction. Will serve the whole thing over brown rice. Smells good, but really feels like I...
The Raid: Redemption
More a video game than a film, this is nonetheless extremely entertaining. I haven’t seen an audience react to an action film so strongly since the early days of John Woo, whose work this film definitely shares a pedigree with. Essentially one non-stop fight, it is very well made. At an hour and forty minutes it didn’t drag for a second, which speaks pretty well of the production...
Holy shit was that yummy
Wifey made tortellini in brodo with veal meatballs, kale and escarole. That was the best thing I tasted in a very long time.
Flogging Molly The Worst Day Since Yesterday
Yeah, they're that good.
Jumping in the car to run up to Absolute Bagels at 107th Street and Broadway. Even though I’ll pass dozens of very good bagel shops on my way there, and despite my dislike of the Upper West Side, it’s worth it. They’re that good.
Me: Did someone call a doctor? Wife: A doctor? Huh? Me: You know, Doctor backrub? Wife: Doctor backrub? What the fuck, what is that? Doctors don’t give backrubs. That’s not something a doctor would do. Unless he was a creep. Me: Not creepy, I just wanted to get a little intimate? Wife: Yeah, well, instead you made my vagina close. Me:… Wife: No, seriously, I just grew...
She’s a fucking beast– My darling Wife, as we once again get entirely too engaged in the show Four Weddings.
Don’t bullshit a bullshitter– Terrence Carey Thank you, Uncle Terry, for this phrasing which comes in handy so often at work.
Just paid a thousand dollars for baseball tickets. For two games.
Protip: don't get in fights →
And if you do, for God’s sake don’t start up with a guy who has shot someone with a rocket launcher. That’s a dude you just don’t want to fuck with.
I’ve had my share of rough nights, but this guy takes it to a whole new level.
Would you just look at the rouching on that dress? So unflattering with her...– Me, getting overly invested in the show “Four Weddings”.
Ladies and gentlemen, I have my iPad3
I hate my business and everyone in it
We scouted the lobby of a very upmarket office building recently. The process to clear the place for filming usually takes a fairly long time but I was able to trade on my relationship with the owner to get us in immediately. We ran through all of our plans, which were pretty extensive and a lot more than the building owner was hoping for, but with a little finesse I knew things would work out. ...
Just got my new PBA card
Let’s hear it for yet another year where I’m pretty much allowed to commit any misdemeanors I please with no consequences! Edit: alright you weisenheimers, I am NOT a pro bowler. Policemen’s Benevolent Association if you must.
I just had a minor freak out while trying to determine my feelings about the Browns potentially signing Matt Flynn. I have been obsessing over Justin Blackmon for months now while blocking out memories of Braylon Edwards. No matter what else should be bothering me in life my biggest worry is that my team might desperately reach for Tannehill with the number four pick. This is why we watch...

venetianblinds: Taking the 195 East exit isn’t unlike the plastic interlocking tracks for diecast Hot Wheels toys. Cement wraps and warps and in an instant I could derail from the path, smashing into concrete.

Moe's daylight savings diet
The combination of daylight savings time and the impending Mayan apocalypse had Moe on edge yesterday, so he went a little overboard. 1 slice thick cut applewood smoked slab bacon some nice fontina cheese a piece of sweet Italian sausage from Faicco’s diced smoked pork belly from Hill Country 24 month aged prosciutto di Parma fresh ricotta from DiPalo’s fresh mozzarella from...
