Here’s a fresh batch of some quality interweb finds I’ve come across over the last 7 days: Very cool Super 8 footage of Elton John performing at Madison Square Garden, Thanksgiving 1974. Special guest appearance by John Lennon! (YouTube) Are you getting tired of Charlie Sheen too? Well read this great op-ed about his troubling history with women, anyway.

But if you look closely enough you can spot some real keepers: I think Jesse floats through the air when cameras are near, like the old Looney Tunes bits where a character would drift towards a freshly baked pie.   I'm surprised Jerry Seinfeld didn't use this space for another friggin' Bee Movie ad. Yes, we know Tina.   A rare moment of intellectual honesty from Hollywood.
