Ended up driving to Pasadena. AC I could control and “Prisoner of Azkaban” read by Stephen Fry were the deciding factors. #sorryplanetearth
CSI, iPad, transmedia fan? Check it: @zuiker is doing some crazy stuff for the new Level 26, including a CSI x-over. http://dlvr.it/6DLxt
When did you first hear about Facebook?
Saw The Social Network tonight, after having read the script a while ago and following the behind-the-scenes (not to mention the reality of what actually happened). Overall, it’s just great filmmaking — it’s Fincher being calm and confident and so skilled at putting talented people together and the result plays beautifully — plus, It’s refreshing to see something...
This is my favorite response to today’s dilemma. RT @MissingReelTV: @lizlet Answer: Don’t EVER go to Pasadena.
Decision time: Take the bus to Pasadena (1.5 hours each way) or drive to Pasadena (less than an hour each way, $9 parking plus gas)?

That’s what I do. I don’t call that socializing. I call it acting and...– Aaron Sorkin on his idea of Facebook as “writing to an audience,” not socializing. The Social Network’s Aaron Sorkin Interviewed - The Daily Beast (via shananaomi) Oh, he’s good at this.
Obligatory post about how hot it is in L.A.
Yes, life is hell, as in it feels like we are living in the pits of Hell right now. But I will say this: About two months ago, I got a new roommate via Craigslist — a nice girl but a complete stranger. Our cohabitation has been completely painless since she moved in but we’ve been relatively distant towards each other (what with, you know, being complete strangers). But today, it...

Dear Frank, Sometimes, the holes in your pop culture knowledge seem understandable — the world is vast and wide, and Dirty Dancing isn’t every young man’s cup of tea. But you haven’t seen Tron? Completely bizarre. Please enjoy the first installment of my new side project, Liz Tells Frank What Happened In... And if you enjoy it, feel free to share via the Interwebs. New entries every Monday!...

So we got this awesome new copyeditor at GigaOM recently, who is awesome for the reasons most copyeditors are awesome: does a great job with preserving voice while also making the grammar work, has a sense of humor, and double-checks to see if I was referring to Tom Selleck or Burt Reynolds. (MAN was I glad she did that.) But here is the reason she is awesome beyond all that. She’ll edit...
