Stopped at a red light while out for a run. A guy LEANS OUT HIS WINDOW so he’s RIGHT IN MY FACE (thanks for all the narrow streets, Pittsburgh), grins the CREEPIEST GRIN OF ALL TIME, says, “You’re out to get the men, aren’t ya?” and CACKLES.

It has occurred to me recently how very often I say a prayer of gratitude for art in all its many forms.

Confirmed: 'HIMYM' Season 9 Will Only Span Wedding... →
popculturebrain: CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler has now confirmed for TVLine that Season 9′s entire run will, in fact, span the wedding weekend and just the wedding weekend, as the comedy details “how each character, before Ted, meets the mother. So, they each meet her independently before he does.” UGH. 24 episodes of a 56-hour weekend. Does that make sense to anyone? They’ll have...

A moment, please, for PHI and for how terrible grad school is and how wonderful grad school is and the friends you make and the moments you have in rec-room-like upper rooms with pizza and beer and cigarettes and half-mottled prose (never the poetry; sorry, poets) and broken lamps and stomach-cramped laughter and bitching about classes and the cool corner table with the wrap-around bench and the...
The question 'Who should run for president in...
Amy Poehler: Prince.
Brad Hall: That’s a great answer.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus: And Sly and the Family Stone.
Hall: The Family Stone would be the VP.
Louis-Dreyfus: That would be good.
New York magazine: The Family Stone would be the cabinet, Sly would be the VP.
Poehler: You know, with Prince and Sly and the Family Stone, wouldn't we get more done around here?
Hall: Man. That is a funky field right there.
Louis-Dreyfus: You would definitely get funky with it. That’s for sure.
Poehler: Whoever runs, that should be their motto. Whoever runs, it should be, "Let’s get funky with it."
Louis-Dreyfus: Oh my God. Wouldn't that be so good?
Poehler: That would be so good no matter who it is.
Louis-Dreyfus: You would give all your life savings to that campaign.
Poehler: If a candidate was like, “Come on guys: Let’s get funky with it.”
New York magazine: Maybe you should do it.
Louis-Dreyfus: All right, should those two candidates decide to run, Amy and I are going to run their campaign, or we’ll be a part of the branding of the campaign.
Poehler: We’ll be like Peaches and uh...
Louis-Dreyfus: Diamond and Pearl.
Hall: Peaches and Herb. Oh no, sorry.
Poehler: Peaches and Cream! The dancers that used to perform with Prince.
Louis-Dreyfus: That’s right. [Ed. note: It was Diamond and Pearl.]
Poehler: Prince always has some beautiful, like, 16-year-old dancers.
Louis-Dreyfus: We’re not 16, but we could totally dance with him, you know, while he campaigns.
Poehler: Well, it’s going to be a different kind of dancing. It has to be serious dancing. Because it’s a political campaign.
Louis-Dreyfus: There are issues and we feel strongly about the issues. So it will be a serious kind of dance.
Poehler: Once again, I know Prince reads your magazine. I know he reads these little interviews. Julia and I are ready to dance behind him when he runs for president in 2016.
Louis-Dreyfus: Please take this seriously.
