Separated At Birth

It finally hit me who rock star (not sure if he is a rock star, just looks like one) designer Daniel on Project Runway looks like .... soon-to-be-over-exposed SNLer Andy Samberg!

And now an open letter to soon-to-be-over-exposed SNLer Andy Samberg: Andy, that rap video was the bomb. It really was. But beware. Remember how funny we thought Debbie Downer was? 'Member?! Well, it's not funny anymore because your bosses allowed the sketch to be played OVER and OVER. Here's what you do. Wait until NEXT season. And then just when we think SNL is stupid again, do a sequel of Lazy Sunday... and we'll continue to crush like crazy over you. MMmm-kay? Jimmy Fallon on line 2...

Couple of the Year

This ad, running in the front section of the New York Times, has really captured my imagination. I'll leave it to all of you to come up with the love story in the comments section. Awaiting the romantic magic... Click photo to enlarge, if you will...

Meet 'Dancing A Train Man'

I've enjoyed Dancing A Train Man quite a few times and finally have a video to prove it. He's no longer just legend. You must wait for the running man.

WaHi Loves Its Woofs

Has anyone else in Hudson Heights seen the couple who walk their handicapped dog on the fancy stretcher? I swear, everytime I see it I well up. They park him in the little park on 187th and dozens of people stop by to say hello. I think this will be my holiday card.

Gross-ery Store?

Check out the 30-second PETA ad that networks wouldn't run. The ad was said to be too "graphic." Being the stupid-ass that I am I, you know, clicked. Well, graphic? You be the judge...

The Coop is out of control.

The 360 is now complete.

I'm a person. Like you. Only not.

Okay, I'm as excited as the next gay about Brokeback Mountain. Yada yada yada. Can't wait. More yada. But Brooklynfrog pointed out this Heath Ledger quote from the new EW cover story that kind of sticks out like, well, you know.

''Any kind of nerves I had about approaching that scene, I didn't have to hide. We were like, 'F--- it, we took on this story and there's no point in shying away from it.' Neither of us wanted to do it again any time soon. But in the end, it was just like kissing a person.''

Well, thank you, Heath. Good to know we're people.

Snow Alert 2005 on Fox 5

Fox was ON IT last night. They had a ticker that updated with school closings every two minutes (which they told us about every two minutes), they had team coverage in all areas of the tri-state, covering the approaching disaster with their usual Fox flare; shots of snow plows from last year, shots of piles of salt, shots of wet roads and interviews with people buying shovels at Home Depot. My favorite though, was hunky, brow-y Jim Castillo, condemned to the streets of Chelsea. With next-to-no snow falling, Jim had the crew shoot his flashy black shoes, scuffling on the pavement, warning that it was "freezing up." Emmy, people. Emmy.

Below, the tragedy as it was before us when we woke.

Today's Time Suck: Rent in Concert

I'm totally digging AOL Music's "Rent" Sessions with some of the cast. Best part? They don't have those annoying microphones that stopped me from liking the stage show. Haven't seen the movie yet, but after hearing Jesse Martin wail, I might consider it...
