Compare and contrast with Coke Zero.
New York, NY, USA
One of Sondheim's best, in an all-star rendition starring Neil Patrick Harris, Stephen Colbert, Christina Hendricks, Martha Plimpton and Patti LuPone - and it's dynamite. Bobby is the lone bachelor amongst a group of couples. He spends the whole show angsting about whether he should get married and bedding hot women (Mad Men's bodacious Hendricks is one, btw). LuPone kills. Colbert too! SEE IT.
They say it's bad for you. I am trying to care but I just can't - I LOVE DIET COKE. It's delicious and refreshing and tastes best frosty from the can, but I'll take it however I can get it (though only from a fountain under duress). I drink way too much of it to admit here, but the joy it's brought to my life merits an appropriate homage in this space.
British historian Andrew Roberts examines the strategic choices of the Allies and Axis forces in what looks to be a brilliant, and new, historical analysis. I haven't read it but it's on my wishlist. The new version contains transcripts of conversations from Hitler's war room (cue new "Downfall" vid possibilities).
Love this band. De Stilj is my favorite ("Apple Blossom" kills me) but I also wore out the grooves (metaphorically) to White Blood Cells back in the day. Saw them perform at the infamous Union Square surprise show where authorities pulled the plug. Was right up front. Nursed a big ol' crush on Jack White. Huge talent.
I'm just going to go ahead and make my girlcrush official. Amy Poehler is a towering pillar of the comedy world, even though she's quite petite. Co-founder of the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, she made the UCB a conduit for up-and-coming comedians to SNL and the paying comedy world. Aziz Ansari, Jack McBrayer, Rob Riggle, Paul Scheer and more owe a debt to her. Anyhoo. I am a fan.
Oh how I love this soundtrack. Have known it by heart since I was 8, which made me an 8 year old singing about transsexuals and seat-wetting, but that's ok. Every song is great and as an added bonus you get get by as an old-school movie expert thanks to "Science Fiction: Double Feature." And learn about weight training in "I Can Make You A Man." I just love this CD.
