Manhattanhenge 2012

So I’ve never experienced this before, but I think it will be pretty cool.

If you’re in New York City tonight at sunset, watch as “the setting Sun aligns precisely with the Manhattan street grid, creating a radiant glow of light across Manhattan’s brick and steel canyons,” according to Hayden Planetarium. This phenomenon, known to us as Mahattanhenge, is kind of like Stonehenge in the U.K., where the “Sun rises in perfect alignment with several of the stones, signaling the change of season.” Except, you know, I’m pretty sure ours is a fluke.

All You Can Do Is Laugh At It

Ugh. I don’t even like seeing it on the page. Also, what is “fake” mayo?

There are definitely days in my life where nothing too extraordinary happens, and I tend to fall into a lull of security, thinking that maybe we’ve turned a corner, and a sense of normalcy in my life will reign forever. Then, something happens to remind me that normal will never be in the cards. There will never be a time when things aren’t utterly ridiculous. The crazy will always be following me. Case and point, an email I received yesterday:

A Brief Rundown of What’s Going on With My Facebook Page

I’m sure it’s been said that you can tell a lot from someone by looking at their Facebook page. This is totally true. There’s no way at all that someone would be merely projecting a false outward appearance to the world to make everyone think they’re super cool, super secure, super busy and super happy with their life. Sarcasm noted.

Fortunately for all of you, my own Facebook page is pretty much like talking right to me. But on further study, that it absolutely horrifying. Do you know the kind of crazy that is going on all over my Facebook page right now?!? Well, I’m going to show you.

Behind the Scenes: Call Me Maybe Video Shoot

So this “Call Me Maybe” phenomenon has more juice in it than I first expected. First Bieber, than me and my friends, then Katy Perry and James Franco, and now the Harvard baseball team is on board! No one can resist it!

Since you all are clearly calling for more, I’ve decided to give you a behind the scenes look at our video shoot (I’m also milking this for blog hits). From the very serious choreography of Brett Turnbull and Mychala Coughlin to the ridiculous light stick hats belonging to Biz Inc., I could not love these videos more. There’s also an appearance by Scout Ankeles! If only all of this could have made it into the final version!

So enjoy this peek into the making of our video!

Someone’s Going to See Newsies June 15!

We might need to work on some of the lyrics, but I am clearly the best godmother ever.

This Looks So Good, You Guys

Saw this trailer on Good Morning America yesterday and I got the chills. So did George Snuffleupagus. He said so. Josh Elliot did not, probably because he was too busy thinking about his date with Kelly Bensimon. Wrong Kelly, Josh!

Anyway, Ben Affleck’s new flick deals with the Iranian Hostage Crisis which was resolved in the early 1980s. Apparently, this film focuses on hostages that were able to escape and hide out in the Canadian Embassy. And Ben Affleck has to figure out how to get them out of there before they are discovered. Natch. Whitey Bulger is involved somehow…oh no, that’s not this movie.

This is a Thing that Happened

And just in case I’m eventually arrested, I want to make sure my side of the story is heard.

So Audrey and I were innocently discussing the new Pizza Hut Crown Crust pizza via gchat on Wednesday. While not discussing matters of national security, we’re usually talking about other really important things, like Crown Crust pizza, Mark Titus, weaves, the Mighty Ducks movie franchise, Whitney Houston and Keurig coffee makers. We talked about all of these things Wednesday, in fact. Anyway, Crown Crust pizza was the second most disgusting thing I had heard of this week, and I decided to tell Audrey all about the first most disgusting thing:
