Did you see the musical number at the end of How I Met Your Mother last night? $10 to anyone who can tell me why the hell it was written in a key that was clearly uncomfortable for all involved. There is a moment when NPH is standing on cab and his voice actually enters the "dog only" range. Check it out here if that appeals to you for some reason.

In other news of mediocrity, the Writers Guild of America released its nominations for their 2009 honors yesterday. For the first time ever, I have see or intentionally skipped nearly all of the flicks on the list. And this is not because I saw everything this year. I'm a mainstream critic (as you know by now) because it's just way easier than art house shit. I went to art school, I have no desire to dip back into that land of theory and fruitless effort. Anyway, I know all the nominees this year because the Guild has apparently grown tired of working at watching too. How cool is that?
