Tim McCloskey lays into Jimmy Fallon for Philadelphia:

Or worse, he puts on Tom Jones and does the Carlton Dance. He’s that guy.
Vulture has a great collection of anecdotes and facts about the making of Spike Jonze’s Her.
Lane Brown conducted a great interview with SNL’s Lorne Michaels for New York.
Aimee Mann and Ted Leo team up.
