As Hollywood couples go, Kristen Bell and Dax Shephard are the coolest.
Both are really funny on-screen, and if you follow them on Twitter, you get a feeling they crack each up other at home as well.
‘Cause they don’t take themselves too seriously. Appear to live fairly simply. Love their daughter and their dogs.
Then they go and make this commercial —
They’re not in the Apple cult!
I love them so much right now.

Facebook and Twitter have been all , well, a-twitter with the news of the October release of The Gilmore Girls on Netflix.
Every episode. All the Girls, all the time.
I am happy to see this series finally get some love and attention.
I’ve been with them since the get go. When Rory was young and Dean was her awkward boyfriend and not a stud on Supernatural. When Lauren Graham was passed over in the Emmy nomination department year after year. When Melissa McCarthy played her very funny yet subtle sidekick Sookie St. James. Breakout performance? I didn’t have to wait for Melissa to break out.
I knew her all along.
I have the entire series on DVD.
Perhaps not as beautifully displayed as you see here.
(Takes up too much room that way.)

My blog, Facebook and Twitter feeds of late have been filled with praise for The Bridges of Madison County, which ended its too-short Broadway run this past Sunday.
I was fortunate enough to see the show twice, including its final performance. But for those of you who were not able to attend — and perhaps have smiled indulgently at my near-obsessive behavior — I wanted to give you a taste of the quality performance I enjoyed.
Here’s Steven Pasquale performing “It All Fades Away” for the studio recording. (The note at 3:20 literally fills your head during the live performance.)

In December, I registered a complaint here and on Twitter about AMC Theatre’s brand new policy trailer.
Featuring their ‘dot people,’ the short film has a bear eating cellphone dogs, and motorcyclists running over cattle. It is weird and nonsensical (and obviously rather abusive to animals for no apparent reason).
A member of the AMC marketing department responded to my concerns on Twitter, which I appreciated. And today I am happy to report –
The policy trailer has been CHANGED!
The dot people are still the focus, but this time, two red balloons float from scene to scene, connecting the action. It’s really very nice. And no dot animals were harmed in the animation.

When I was home for Christmas last December, my three nephews were joking about the perils of having their mom and aunts on Facebook and Twitter.
They just never know when we may chime in on something they post.
Today I drove that point home.
I was stuck on the computer all day, working on a project with a tight deadline. When I needed a break, I would check Twitter; my nephew Nathaniel had just posted something every time.
So did I.
Each time I commented on his tweet or posted a tweet in reply, I added the hashtag #AuntsonTwitter. We chatted back and forth for quite a while, having a great time…or so I thought. Then he posted his own hashtag –
Whatever do you think it means??!?!
