-So this happened at a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles screening this week and I wasn't there to witness it. I am now thankful for nothing.

-Make time to read this history of Alton Brown's Good Eats. (AV Club)

-You could probably skip reading this blow-by-blow of the Nikki Finke/Jay Penske fallout in order to read the Good Eats piece. (NY Mag)

-A short behind the scenes trailer for The Boxtrolls. If you have the talent to do it, working at LAIKA must be the greatest job on the planet.

-The Star Wars rumor mill has gotten wind that the Millennium Falcon is not only in the new installments, but a full scale physical set of it interior and exterior has been built. There is speculation that it may find its way to Orlando when the Star Wars park opens. (Yahoo)

-Madison Square Garden's Garden of Dreams charity is  a pretty big deal in New York.
