Tina gets the final word

Tina Fey was this week's guest on Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. For a show that can be slow and self-indulgent, her episode was pretty funny. Towards the end Seinfeld says that he imagines it's difficult for female comics to, basically, be a woman and advance their careers. He is trying to be empathetic and tap into the "Can women have it all?" debate but Fey shuts him down pretty quick with an intelligent and succinct reply.

"Like if I do a talk show I gotta have my stories together, and I gotta try to look okay," Fey begins. "Eh. Some people work in coal mines."

This is why I love Tina Fey.

Manet's New York

This is Morningside Park after it snowed earlier this week. Whenever the weather gets cold and grey the park's trees disappear into the clouds and blend into the rest of the city's skyline. It reminds me of Manet's Boulevard des Capucines (1873). And it was only after I took this photo that I realized how uncannily similar the two persepctives are.

Drake on SNL

If you haven't already, check out Drake hosting SNL last night. It's not that he's super funny, it's unnervingly cool to see him step away from his last-never-ever-first-name-greatest persona.

Spring Sweaters

This morning it snowed in New York, an icy wet snow that whiplashed across your face. It's the perfect weather for staying indoors in a cozy sweater. But it's pictures like the one above that show that sweaters aren't just for winter anymore. I love the bright neon color but I'm not sure if I have the right amount of pluck to wear it. I tend to wear a lot of dark navys, greys, and blacks year-round. Sure the lack of color looks cool, but it also attracts less attention. Would you wear a bright neon green?

Use Science to Make New Friends

Making friends is hard. Wouldn't it be nice to have a nifty how-to-guide to walk you through the ins and outs of friend-making? Luckily, the writers of The Big Bang Theory have got you covered. Their 100% backed by science friendship algorithm is proven to get results. Just take a look and see how well it worked for Sheldon. Give it a try this weekend. Happy Friday!
