Good morrow ladies & gentlemen! Hope your weekend was spectacular- we on our part made three wonderful discoveries:
#1: Campo de’Fiori in Park Slope makes an excellent pizza, particularly the one slathered in sexy-as-f%#k burrata. Between that and the life-altering experience I had at Paulie Gee’s last weekend, as a native I can only say the BK pizza world is getting better.
#2: I state this without a single iota of hyperbole:
The movie “Cool As Ice” will completely change your life.
This is the movie that makes “Showgirls” look like “Citizen Kane”. It will challenge your notions of such things as “music”, “love” and “physics”. And it will cause you to face the important questions in life, such as “Why don’t people shave lines into their eyebrows anymore?”.
Interesting note before watching: the cinematographer went on to win an Oscar for his work on “Schindler’s List”. That was not a joke.
#3: Each year I watch the Oscars, and each year I’m always completely disappointed (exception if Steve Martin is hosting). This year I didn’t watch the Oscars, followed the whole thing on Twitter, and got to watch the entirety of America be disappointed as I watched the first season of “Party Down” on Netflix. Technology is a beautiful thing.
