–So I mentioned Walter Sobchak earlier in the day, and it just allowed me to reflect one more time on the greatness of The Big Lebowski. I hate when people say, “Is that the bowling movie?” If I was teaching acting I’d just throw in a John Goodman highlight reel from Lebowski, put it on repeat, and go play golf. It has to be one of the most underrated performances of all-time, in a movie that is full of them (Phillip Seymour Hoffman?). Goodman here and maybe Alec Baldwin in Outside Providence are my two favorite performances in non-mainstream roles.
–Is a chocolate, chocolate chip muffin healthier than a piece of chocolate cake? Is it less healthy? Are they the same? I was wondering this while I ate a chocolate, chocolate chip muffin. It seems like anything that is called a muffin should be healthier, but then there are those cofee cake muffins at Dunkin Donuts that must be 1000 calories. Pretty good by the way…I’m waiting for the double fudge brownie muffin.
–The Clippers won the lottery. Does this ruin Blake Griffin’s career? How many words is the Sports Guy going to write about this? 12,000? 31,000? 135,000?
–I had the Nuggets (+6.5) tonight at centsports. I put my whole bankroll on it (down to about 1.50). I love betting against teams I already don’t like. Lakers 105, Nuggets 103. Bang.
