Time enough at last: Man, what a kick in the balls. If you've never seen the beginning of this classic Twilight Zone episode, don't watch this clip, because it's the end. Instead, start at the beginning.

Wes Anderson Commercials

Did you know Wes Anderson shoots commercials? You did? I didn't. WHY ARE THESE THINGS ALWAYS HIDDEN FROM ME? Adweek has 10 Great TV Spots by Wes Anderson that advertise crap like beer, phones, cars, bullcrap like that crap. "Tell people to buy our crap!" the ad execs yell at Mr. Anderson. "Okay," Wes Anderson says, quietly smiling with the secret knowledge that instead he will tell people about magic robots, harried husbands, and the French countryside.
My favorite ad is the kid-narrated one he did for Samsung, which unexpectedly made me cry like Robert DeNiro in Analyze This.

My Visit to L.A.: a One Act Play

Doogie walks into a deli in Los Angeles.

Hi, I’d like to buy a sandwich.

Guy behind counter:
Okay, can I see your resume?

Excuse me?

Guy behind counter:
Have you ever bought a sandwich on TV?


Guy behind counter:
Nothing? Not even any extras work in a Subway commercial? 


Guy behind counter:
Do you at least have a snack agent?


Guy behind counter:
Well look, I don’t want you to starve. I’ve heard they have sandwiches in Oregon, give that a shot. Next!

Steve Buscemi pushes Doogie out of the way.
