"Lannister. Baratheon. Stark. Tyrell. They're all just spokes on a wheel. This one's on top, then that's ones on top and on and on it spins, crushing those on the ground. I'm not going to stop the wheel. I'm going to break the wheel."

This past episode (21) of New Girl titled "Kids" had Zooey Deschanel mentioning Bridge to Terabithia* and for some reason she reminded me of the lovely actress Debra Winger with her kind blue eyes, raspy voice, and mischievious smile. (Maybe Winger could play her mother. Or Deschanel could make a remake of Legal Eagles.)

I recently saw 21 Jump Street which was created in part by DeLong's cousin Phil Lord. Jake Johnson from New Girl was in it, as was Nick Offerman. It was pretty funny. Offerman also had a bit part in the very funny Will Ferrell movie Casa di mi Padre.

For some reason Blogger force me to redesign the blog. The links on the right are messed-up and will be fixed.

* Deschanel's character Jess said it was movie that made children cry. As an adult I thought it was pretty sad. Deschanel had a supporting role playing a teacher, just as Jess is a teacher.
