Does anybody have the Cloverfield monster's phone number? I urgently desire to speak with him. Or her.
Last night I went to a place called the Coffee Table. Here's a picture of the front of the menu.
Unfortunately, I wasn't thinking about making this blog post while I was there, so I don't have any other pictures to give you. I did see a possum there though. It was hanging out in the bushes on the back porch. The place was unbelievably hipster, but so cute and so quiet (except for a couple helicopters that kept flying over, this city has an infestation that is out of control) and while it was pretty far away from where I am currently holed up, I will most definitely be going back.
Finally, something I don't have any pictures of that I can show you yet, sorry for making you read: on Monday night, I went to a taping of the new Nerdist show. If you don't know, this guy Chris Hardwick has had a podcast called the Nerdist Podcast for a while now, and BBC America is thinking about picking it up as a TV show. This is exciting because they usually have great guests - my favorites from podcasts past have been Jon Hamm, Donald Glover, Felicia Day, Jim Gaffigan and Simon Pegg, but I don't think I've ever disliked any of them. Matt Smith was even on there one time, it was awesome!
Anyway, the guest for the pilot was Craig Ferguson, who, as everybody knows, is the greatest Scottish late night show host currently on television. There was also a surprise guest that I can't tell you about even though I really, really, really, reeeeeeeeeeally want to. I did take pictures, and don't get too excited because they're just crappy iPhone pictures taken from the back of the audience, but I'm not going to post any of them because they all feature the surprise guest. Sorry, I mean "super secret surprise guest," as they kept saying. Look, I just don't want to get in trouble, okay? And it's more fun when you don't know. As River Song says... spoilers.
Here is the link to the write-up about it on the Nerdist site featuring lots of non-spoilery pictures for you to enjoy.
I know for sure that this episode will be airing sometime in the fall on BBC America whether the show gets picked up or not, but it'd be cool if it did. There aren't enough awkward nerds on TV.
