Ricky: It's quite a step up in the world from bangin Randy and Lahey to bangin Julian isn't it?

Bubbles: That's a weird thought, Ricky

Last night's episode -- end of Season 4 -- contained maybe my favorite Rickyism yet: "Peach and Cake."

An interview with Josh Schwartz posted entirely in the hopes of enraging pollo.

Quote
THR: You must be one of the only TV showrunners who people give their CD to in clubs.

Schwartz: They do come up to me. I love music, I love going to shows. The idea that someone would put me on a list to go see a band -- I used to be online at Ticketmaster at 4 a.m. To now have some level of hookup in the music world has been a pretty good upside to all this.

THR: Do people come up to you and say, "Hey man, you ruined my favorite band"?

Schwartz: They do, which I take as a pretty good sign. I remember when we put Death Cab for Cutie on ("The O.C."), and they hadn't had a lot of success, and our talking about them was in sync with them releasing a record that really took off, so we got some credit for that. So many people came up to me. And I said, "I hear you, I get it, there's nothing worse than having a band that you think is yours, loving that band, and hearing it in a car commercial and realizing it's no longer just yours." That being said, we use the music respectfully, we are fans, and that is always the way we go about things. And the band is able to achieve a level of success and continue to make records and quit their day jobs. I'm sure it's weird for them too, but at the same time it helps them fully realize their ambitions as a band. No one ever went up to a radio DJ and said, "Hey, you ruined my favorite band." I really think TV has replaced radio to a big extent.

THR: Have you ever seen any numbers showing what kind of jump bands get after appearing on one of your shows? That Imogen Heap song you played over the funeral on "The O.C." had to be big for her.

Schwartz: Yeah. It ranges, but that song ("Hide and Seek") got a huge spike, then it got picked up by (L.A.'s) KROQ. She very nicely played at my wedding and sang our first dance song.

THR: Who else played your wedding? Was it just a stream of indie-rock bands you've helped?

Schwartz: No, just her. We didn't want to make it like the "Rachel Getting Married" wedding.



Blucas Jenny Humphrey has a band too.

make it stop

Still not as funny as Ed Westwick's band, but I'll take it.

haha oh I hadn't looked at video before now:

YES

edit:

Also, that fan video is making me miss Willa Holland on that show.  It was nice to have an actually funny actress around.

From now on, every time you guys do the TPB quoting, I'm just going to post GG pictures




Hey NNY, I guess they're not picking up the spinoff; which is weird since the back-door pilot episode hasn't even aired yet.

I just caught up with the most recent episode of Breaking Bad, and... wow. Favorite episode thus far, for sure. Not a single false moment. This show has the potential, with episodes like that, to go from really fucking good to truly great. It's strange coming on the heels of the whole Bob Odenkirk thing, too, which I felt was a misstep.

While I love the supporting cast, I think part of why this episode was so awesome is that the more we  get to see just Walt and Jessie interacting, the better.  The writing, the acting, everything is just pitch-perfect.

You're wrong about "not a single false moment" though: Krysten Ritter had lines
(and her performance aside, the random-love-interest-to-complicate things is the most lame TV-ey thing about the show right now).

You guys are actually convincing me to check out Breaking Bad. Right about now the only TV I watch are dubbed Japanese Iron Chef episodes on YouTube (which are fantastic, if you didn't know).

Yea, Iron Chef America is alright, but the original Japanese Iron Chef is where it's at.  I wish they still played it on Food Network.

It's on every night on the internet.

I love how involved the competitors get. I've seen at least four episodes where the winner bursts into tears at the end.

Wooo!

I am watching the Angels in America miniseries, and am loving it. I don't think I would love it nearly as much though if i hadn't just read the play, which got me all choked up at some points. Its like after a year of hardly crying at all, winter shows up and I'm crying every day over anything

Dude, seriously, you're lucky that only happens to you for part of the year. That's pretty much every day of my life.

It's funny; I have zero respect for Josh Schwartz, but I've watched every single episode of every single one of his shows.  Probably I'm just a dick.

I never had any opinion of him at all before now, but the gratuitous "Rachel Getting Married" dis is enough for me to hate him forever.

oh SHIT.  This caused me to go to his imdb page.  I had no idea he's at the helm of a film version of Looking for Alaska.

So, I just found a torrent with 6 (or rather 12, since they're always in two parts) episodes of Night Stand with Dick Dietrick. And there are more episodes on Youtube! I haven't seen it since I was a little kid; it was my favorite show back then. Happy times on the modern internet!

Blucas and others with a morbid interest in Gossip Girl:

Have you seen this? It's amazing. Please explain to me why the world is conspiring to make me add Gossip Girl DVDs to my Netflix.
