wes anderson is still a genius.

we've all seen his movies, and the ads he's done for IKEA and Dasani. now, wes anderson is back, riding the celebrities-who-heart-their-AMEX-cards campaign, along with fellow director m. night shyamalan, kate winslet and robert deniro, as well as a ton of other hollywood names. this spot is classic wes and might just be enough to tide me over until his next film comes out.

Ricky Gervais has a podcast

Our hero from the British version of "The Office" (and the mildly entertaining "Extras" on HBO) has a podcast. Apparently there are already 12 episodes. I just read about it in the New York Times. I'm so with it, learning about a six-month-old podcast by reading it in the slowly dying medium of the newspaper.

I have no idea if this is even good or not. I'm just downloading it now.

Okay. I just saw one episode and it's pretty funny. Random and low-fi and kind of what you'd expect, but funny. In fact it starts with a radio ad he wrote for Prostate Cancer Awareness. Interesting to know he writes ads...
