Best Little Weekend Movie

On Wednesday, as I was walking home from school (the geographic location, not the actual taking of classes, that hasn't started yet) I passed the "new" IFC Center Theater at 6th and 3rd and they were having the New York City premiere of The Baxter and Michael Showalter (the writer, director, and star of the film) was standing around having his photo taken.

Then a bit later his co-star, Justin Theroux, showed up and they posed together.

Then, on Friday night, I went and saw The Baxter. While it has been getting absolutely horrible reviews, I found the movie to be very likeable. It was beyond inoffensive and harmless and I thought it was plenty funny. It's only playing in New York and LA right now, but it's worth checking out when it arrives in your city, or just rent it, maybe. I'd definitely see it again.

Where did you get that picture of Wes Anderson and Tara Subkoff?

Dear Anonymouses,

This is what I must know:

Why have nearly a dozen people come into my site via the Wes Anderson post since yesterday and what's the fascination and how was it unearthed?

But anyway. I stole that photo from a favorite photoblog, And it took some work, but I found the original entry:

I'm a plunderer of the internet.

I think I'm responsible. I came across your blog when I was searching for Wes Anderson pictures on Yahoo. I passed the link on to some friends. Sorry if we creeped you out. It is a cool photo.

HAha I'm responsible too. I'm the one who came and stalked you! But we girls have a hot crush on Wes...he's hot. And stuff. But thanks for the info! You are cool!
