Hardwick will be doing a free test show at Meltdown on 6/25. The ticket order page gives this description:
Chris Hardwick, Thomas Lennon, Robert Ben Garant and Funny or Die join forces to host a rapid-fire game show inspired by the darkest recesses of social media.
(Note: It’s unclear if the show is called ‘Midnight’ or ‘@Midnight’, but the ticket page includes the @ symbol outside of Twitter so I’m going with that.)
jasoncerrato asked: I don't know how much they cost there, but the tougher plastic reusable bags here are $1 each and the clothy ones are around $3. Even though it took some getting used to remembering to bring my reusable bags when I go food shopping, I think it actually ended up being a good thing. Instead of carrying in 8 plastic bags of groceries from the car I now only need about 3 of the reusable ones, and I don't end up with a mountain of plastic bags in my pantry that grows taller with each trip.
I prefer plastic bags.
Plain and simple.
I shouldn’t have to pay for new bags and play the guessing the game of how many to bring.
So long, plastic grocery bags?
The Los Angeles City Council voted for an ordinance banning plastic bags Tuesday, making L.A. the largest city to possibly forbid grocers from providing anything other than paper bags (at 10 cents a pop).
Plenty of people have voiced their disapproval of the ban, including one bag-totting Target customer in Eagle Rock:
“I’m going to forget to bring my bag, and I’m not going to want to pay, so Target will probably lose some of my business,” the Highland Park resident said. “Then I’ll be putting even more things back.”
But the inconvenience may be worth it for the greater good, as Karin Klein writes in her account of the bag-less lifestyle (with a bit of a learning curve):
Truth is, though, it can be a pain. Sometimes, you just crave a flimsy wisp of plastic with built-in handles to carry out the trash, or to hold some messy item that should not see the inside of a backpack. The reality is that life without plastic bags is entirely doable and a lot better for the environment, but it does require some adjusting.

i support this
UGH. I loved that LA didnt have this stupid ban. Sorry environment, but paying for bags after I’ve already spent over 100 bucks on groceries is stupid. How the hell am I supposed to know how many bags from home to bring? Also, paper bags ARE THE WORST. Im pretty sure they make them so flimsy now so that you break them on your way out and have to buy the overly priced shitty recycled material bags from the store.
Yeah, NOT in support of this.
So Red Granite Pictures, aka the company that my second internship shares an office with, just made the Dumb and Dumber To announcement today. I heard mumblings about this at the office last week, but was wondering when it would be confirmed. So yay.
My apolotweets might not have fit the scale of the crime for some, so I’m following them up with one of my patented apoloblogs. I want to clarify, I’m apoloblogging in an effort to counteract pain I caused other people. Not because I think what I have to say is important - this is one of those…
Full time intern.
Forever a film and television devotee.
I thrive off of escapism.
