As Lightning Prepares To Strike...

Claiming they haven't been asked any interesting questions in 17 years, Pearl Jam aren't [isn't?] doing any "press" for their new album release, but they have done some unconventional, interesting interviews: with director Judd Apatow [50m, via NPR.com], with Portlandia's Carrie Brownstein [part 1 of interview linked here, right-click and choose "open menu" or discover menu at end of each segment to view more parts, or those with FaceBook can "like" to gain access to full interview, around 1h total], with Down-Under surfer Mark Richards [34m, via Brisbane Times], and with former NFL star Steve Gleason [YT, 9m30s]. (This last is less an interview and more a news magazine feature on Gleason and his struggle with ALS.) [more inside]

"From the beginning, we thought that everything about the show should be painfully, painstakingly real."

My friends and I weren’t popular in high school, we weren’t dating all the time, and we were just trying to get through our lives. It was important to me to show that side. I wanted to leave a chronicle—to make people who had gone through it laugh, but also as a primer for kids going in, to say, “Here’s what you can expect. It’s horrifying but all you should really care about is getting through it. Get your friends, have your support group. And learn to be able to laugh at it.”

Will Bridesmaids save the chick flick? Director Paul Fieg fretted about the opening, but Bridesmaids came in second place opening weekend. It has buzz and critical praise. But is it feminist? Does it matter? Is it total crap anyway? Does Roger Ebert like it? [more inside]

let's roll with Joel Hodgson's TV Wheel

"The TV Wheel was a television experiment created by and starring Joel Hodgson, of Mystery Science Theater 3000 fame. Cable network HBO ordered a pilot, but ultimately passed on picking up the show. The pilot episode eventually aired once on Comedy Central as a special presentation following the last new episode of MST3K to be broadcast on that network."*

Rainn Wilson was almost cast as GOB

Between the resounding reception of Knocked Up and the anticipation of Superbad (NSFW), this is looking to be the summer of Judd Apatow. So in celebration, I present to you Ms. Allison Jones, the casting genius behind not just those two movies, but Arrested Development, Freaks and Geeks, and The Office as well. (Also, Family Ties, the Golden Girls...) We thank you, Allison, for Pam-and-Jim (Spoiler alert), for George-Michael Bluth, and for Bill Haverchuck. Oh yeah, and she cast Borat, too.

I thought only movie industry people were allowed to be this full of crap. Apparently the privilege extends to TV people as well.
Thanks Boing Boing.
