  • Arthur Chu is still winning Jeopardy. He talked to The AV Club. I’m still undecided about smug Mr. Chu but good for him, I guess.
  • And for all my fellow former Long Island bargin shoppers: RIP Loehmann’s. I have so many memories of those strange shared dressing rooms & purchases of Joe Jeans and Michael Star shirts.  This is very sad.

  • As an avid Jeopardy-watcher for almost my entire life, I enjoy when contestants are suddenly thrust into the media spotlight. Like this guy. Go Arthur!
  • And, finally, Phillip Seymour Hoffman died this week.  My first memory of his work was as Lester Bangs in Almost Famous.  At that time, I wanted nothing more than to be a rock critic. This role, and this movie, prompted my research into Lester Bangs’ writing. Each of Hoffman’s roles were great in their own right. He will really be missed. RIP.
