30 Rock quote of the week -- 4/21

Jack to Liz: "I'm still supposed to hold your hand. Your wet, yet somehow flaky hand!"

Dennis to Liz: "Down deep, you still got all kinds of queer feelings for me. That's how I knew someday you'd be all vulnerable from a gas leak or a coma or a super period."

Glee quote of the week -- 4/19

Blaine to Sandy: "You're a really horribe person, you know that?"
Sandy: "You sound like my court appointed therapist."

How many times have I wanted to tell a client that he/she is a horrible person? Usually, I just write it in my progress notes instead.

The number of the week -- Gwyneth singing Adele.

Living on a lighted stage

Now that I have fulfilled my adolescent dreams of seeing Bruce Springsteen perform several times, it's time to go back even further. When I was 10 years old, the album Moving Pictures by Rush was released. At that time, I decided that Rush was my favorite band. When you're 10, you can say things like that, even if you only know two of their songs.

Thirty years later, I began to appreciate them again... mostly because of Jason Segal. Exhibit A: Freaks and Geeks

Exhibit B: I Love You, Man

One of the things I was most looking forward to was experiencing the notoriously nerdy audience. When Shauna and I walked in to take our seats, two men sitting behind us said, "Are you Canadian?" We were initially confused by this question until they clarified that the only women that they know that like Rush are Canadian. The next question was, "Did your older brother get you into Rush?" Later, "What made you decide to come to this concert? Was it a 'bucket list' kind of thing?" I knew that we were going to be in the minority in the audience, but I didn't know we would actually blow people's minds in the process.

Anyway, it was a really fun show, and there was almost no line for the ladies' room. I'd definitely go again, if I had better seats. Here are some pics (I know these pictures are no good, but here they are anyway).

are you watching?

I think most people would agree that "The Office" has been hit or miss this season. Could Will Ferrel make this show great again?
