On Katy Perry, "Birthday"

Fun fact about this song: The awesome brass is provided by the SNL house band!

Birthday and International Smile are the two best tracks from Prism, and I think it's because they sound exactly like other, better songs: I Wanna be Your Lover by Prince and Digital Love by Daft Punk, respectively.

On How to Mount a TV When You Have No Boyfriend, No Prospects, and Lack the Shamelessness Required to Ask for Help

@Hot Doom I LITERALLY did this when I did crew. I had an adjustable wrench on a piece of ribbon I wore around my neck so people could tighten their tracks and rigs before a race.

On Who's the Squarest-Jawed of Them All?

As much as I love Michael Caine as Alfred, I stand by my assertion that Batman Returns was the franchise's high-water mark. Viva Keaton.
