That’s Nicole Kidman, in case you’re wondering. Same pose, different other stuff.
“It may seem hard to believe today, but in ’94 we were playing in core-conceptual territory that hadn’t been explored that much on network TV—young-adult relationships.” – Warren Littlefield
“Then Kauffman and Crane came back with Friends, which we thought was such a snore. Some people thought the show was too Gen X, way too narrow.” – Karey Burke
“Fame doesn’t cure whatever is going on inside of you, however you feel about yourself.” – Lisa Kudrow
“We did not want to go out on the bottom. We wanted to feel more like it was time for your child to go to college, not die.” – Marta Kauffman
Who doesn’t love an oral history of the best sitcom of our time?
Jim Parsons of The Big Bang Theory and Lee Pace of Pushing Daisies under one roof? Yes please. (Also Ellen Barkin).
Is Roger Federer over? For Anna Wintour’s sake, I hope not.
Willie Nelson is both the subject of a documentary directed by none other than Billy Bob Thorton, and a drug bust for marijuana (again), where a judge JOKINGLY said that if he sang a song, he could go free.
Atlantis for realz?! I hope so.
There’s dramz involving Etta James’ estate. I really really hope this gets wrapped up in a way that would make her happy, because this is just too sad.
Miles Davis biopic. If anyone can do it, it’s Don Cheadle. Not to be a downer, but it’s rarely easy to sum up a life in a movie.
The funnest of facts about the Toy Story trilogy. But one of the most interesting facts isn’t even about Toy Story or its sequels; did you know that Alice and Wonderland is the sixth highest grossing movie of all-time. Yea, that weird Tim Burton remake version.
The New York Times is reviewing children’s books online. Legitimating the genre, or responding to Park Slope parents?
Take me here now please. More shots at the jump. It’s Switzerland, of course.

These plans for the New York City waterfront look excellent.
Black Orpheus is an amazing movie, and this breakdown of how to “live in it” can make you too feel as though you’re in Brazil during Carnivale.
Jello is super cool. Here are a few more reasons to love it. I fondly remember my family reunion in Iowa in ’98 where we were served green jello with marshmallows and I just…gaped.
To Paul Simon’s new album.
LOOK & LISTEN
Cab drivers are required to pick you up if their light is on. KNOW THE LAW.
New York, way back when. It looks almost fake.
Marcel gets his own show…on SyFy. Dear god. It gets better: the show is called Marcel’s Quantum Kitchen.
Nicole Miller tv. She was the first designer I remember being enticed by through advertising. I wanted that skirt made of ties.
Jennifer Aniston “sex tape.” Not to take away from her accomplishments, but I do wonder if she would have been as famous without Brad, and vice versa. Probs not. It really is the Eddie Fisher – Elizabeth Taylor – Debbie Reynolds love triangle of the 21st century.
David Letterman is a creeper and you can see so yourself by watching these clips of him checking out his lady guests. But like, what else is new?
