  1. I saw a preview of the Muppet movie that was making fun of Twitter comments yesterday and it was really clever. I wish these new Muppet movies were as biting and satirical as the original three. I also wish that I’d find a basket of unmarked bills on my doorstep, but this promo makes me think the second movie might be okay. Of course the Great Muppet Caper was absolutely perfect, so why they did the second reboot in the ilk of the first with flavors of the third is beyond me…

    And I just looked outside for that basket. Still not there.

  2. I look forward to next year’s Critics Circle award winner, We Need To Talk About Armond.

  3. The best way to deal with the Armond White situation is just to stop giving the man attention. Stop publishing his stuff. Stop inviting him to things. The man is an honest to god real life troll and that’s how he makes his living. Stop enabling him!
