It’s like TBTuesday. All the talk of Temple of the Dog and Green River and Mother Love Bone are such flashbacks to a very cool time in music. Also, I think I might have forgotten to mention I love Chris Cornell. He is pretty chill, always well spoken, never really like putting other people down, etc. Like I need to list why I love him to tumblr? It’s my early 90s insecurities coming back with the music! Noooooooo…..
The original American Idol regularly covers songs by other artists…and slays them all.
This is awesome. Seriously, I want to make it into a workout mix. What I dorkily love about her (besides the obvious) is that she is a HUGE music fan. Seeing her announce the AMA nominees last week, it was more like she was a fan than a peer (superior). And she is one of those people who can just sing, no stupid fucking stunts, costumes or choreography. Talent, it works. It is so encouraging to see someone like her be great on her own terms and really look happy to do what she loves.
He speaks like he’s from the 40s and looks like he’s still in high school, yet John Mulaney is one of the sharpest comedians of this generation.

Who Doesn’t Love Aaron Paul? of the Day: Best.
Not me. Meaning I don’t not love him. You know what I mean.
WHOA Nellie! Last week she was stacking cups adorably and brilliantly as only an otter could. This week? She is talking in this little baby voice and making cute faces all while swimming.
Nellie is at the Point Defiance Zoo in Washington State. Where I am moving if there is one more video that is this cute. Please don’t tell anyone I said this right away in case Nellie goes “missing” I will need time to make get a head start. On the case I mean! What?! I am not an otternapper !!! (yet)
I got to sit down with Scott Aukerman to talk about his new IFC show, and with Jason Mantzoukas to watch him make fun of Scott a lot.
Farley: As far as the IFC show goes, do you feel like it’s been a long time coming?
Scott: Too long! Like, what the fuck took it so long?!
Jason: Woah, woah, woah. Be humble, Scott.
Scott: Shut up Jason. Who are you to think that I shouldn’t have a TV show?!
Jason: This interview is not going to turn out the way you want it to.
Scott: Honestly though, it’s crazy to me that I have a TV show. It’s weird. I don’t deserve it.
Jason: I agree. Everybody agrees.
Scott: When I first started and I got into comedy and I got onto “Mr. Show with Bob and David,” I assumed that I would be starring in my own show the very next year.
Jason: That’s the whole thing. I remember starting in 1998 and thinking that I’d be on SNL in a couple of years. Not the case. At all.

Love everything about this.
I love these guys. And their shows. So much funny.
I wrote an essay about running and why I do it, even though it sucks, a lot, sometimes.
This is nearly my exact experience. From the not being a runner, to starting late and slow, then it being pretty necessary. The almost ancillary but welcomed weight loss, then the fear and panic of injury, the freelancing, the pain, the exhilaration. All of it. I’ve always liked Doree as a writer, but as a runner too? Not sure I could have said any of this better.
