Yeah, that seems about right.

“Thanks for the ball!” Oh wait, THAT’S NOT WHAT IT SAYS.
(Sorry. Also, what?)

Other people live in the building too…
The first time I saw the Foo Fighters was over ten years ago. They were playing with the Red Hot Chili Peppers in Albany (for some reason) so I hopped a Greyhound up with a friend and almost got crushed against the railing in the front of the pit. Muse was opening and stood outside after to hand out stickers themselves. I’m pretty sure I still have one somewhere.
The second time I saw the Foo Fighters was two nights ago at MSG. I took the subway and I was old enough to buy beer, which I drank from a straw.* Here are some pictures (of the show, not the beer… next time):
Main stage .1.
Stage with Bob Mould (covering “Breakdown” by Tom Petty … what?)
Stage with Joan Jett, not giving a damn about their reputation. Though at this point maybe they should give a damn about throwing their backs out?
Just kidding! But seriously, 24 songs. Over 2 and a half hours. Even I had to sit down a few times.
I’m just saying. Somebody get Pat Smear a chair.
*A 16 oz. Budweiser from a straw in a sports arena. Just had to point that out again. Look at me!
And that he is 33 (or something? Unless I got that wrong and she is dating the Old Spice guy, in which case he is 37)? She is 51. Go Kathy Griffin.
Here she is at Carnegie Hall last Saturday as part of the New York Comedy Festival.
Also “internationally acclaimed personal finance expert” Suze Orman was in the audience. I just wrote that so my mother wouldn’t get bored with this post.
Bye Kathy Griffin. Also, DAMN.

(A Louis C.K. joint.)
Lance Crouther, a.k.a. Pootie
1) Louis C.K.’s original cut of the movie was three hours long
2) Bob Costas felt he was duped into being in the film when it didn’t initally get a strong positive reception. He now says he loves it more every year.
3) Robert Vaughn had no idea what movie he was making, and
4) man, Wanda Sykes has some fly moves. I’ma be Biggie Shorty for Halloween next year, I think.
P.S. Look what I found! An unreleased trailer.
