DVR The Shit out of Louie

(via Videogum)

Even though I accidentally watched the first two episodes of Louis CK's new FX show, Louie, the result remains the same - it's good and could turn out to be really good once it finds it's footing. So watch all the stand up that's was placed in between the sitcomy parts of the show. and if you're not DVRing it already, DVR the shit out of Louie.

Bill Murray in Black Book

"He grabs his phone and dials a number. “Hello?” he says to the woman on the other line. “Hi, it’s Bill Murray and I need your help. What’s the DP’s name?” He puts her on speakerphone. She tells him that the man in question is award-winning cinematographer Christopher Doyle, but that he refers to himself as Super-Chris. “We called him Sir Christopher,” she says, laughing. Murray, visibly relieved, leans back in an armchair at Manhattan’s Four Seasons Hotel. He is dressed in a black T-shirt and yellow tape-measure suspenders. “Okay, I’ll call you back,” he says, and, excusing his mental block, adds, “I was just eating Froot Loops. And I had a plastic bag over my head.” "

July 1st is next Thursday: Okay, Lebron James is almost ours, Knick fans. And by "our's" I mean, he's a Bull or a Cav or a Heat (?

Taking away the b and the f and the other f: So there's a movement to break up best friends in school before they even get started, expect a lot of middle school yearbooks to be signed by a girl named Beth with the following "Wow, this year is crazy. I can't believe we're going to high school next year, I can't wait. It was great being friends with you, KIT. Beth" But I don't think Beth will be keeping in touch. (via NY Times)

ESPN Zone closes, Mike Lupica to report to an empty restaurant on Sunday: I'll admit it, I enjoy seeing shots of a relatively empty Times Square on Sunday mornings during the Sports Reporters when they came back from break, as not only does it remind me of that Tom Cruise movie but I;d like to think it'd be an awesome place to live in post apocalyptic New York. But regardless, I must know where will Lupica, Bob Ryan, Mitch Album, and the other Sports Reporters go on Sunday mornings to talk about sports now? (via Eater NY)

Google Image Search: Barry Horowitz

For whatever reason, I spent a decent amount of time on the wikipedia (and later, google image search) of former pro wrestler, Barry Horowitz. And with that being said, no one rocks a dress shirt and (possibly, probably) sweatpants like Barry "The Winner" Horowitz*.

* Horowitz was a jobber (wrestling term for guy who loses all the time), yet he called himself the winner. I like the way he thinks.
