Ed Benguiat's Glorious Caslon

I can't say I’m a fan of John Mayer, but that doesn't stop me from wanting to own this mouth-watering poster designed by the masterful gents over at House Industries. Just look at those dazzling Photo-Letters in action. Sublime, truly sublime.

Woe = me

Doesn't anybody want me?

It's not that bad, I swear, but a guy's gotta let off some steam now and then, right? Of course, those long, mopey periods of repeated blows to my self-confidence are punctuated by enough lucidity to realize that even when I catch someone's eye, I’m often on the other side of the equation feeling a lack of true zing!, so I can't even complain about the total unfairness of it all. Nevertheless, it's been a while since there has been any real promise of anything, any glimmer of substantial mutual interest of any kind, and the dwindling prospects have been wearing me down lately.

I try to remind myself, though, that those romance comics always ended on an up note, so we'll see. As ever.

Plate or platter?

Plate or Platter

Lucille: I'll have the "Ike and Tina tuna."

Waitress at Klimpy's: Plate or platter?

Lucille: I don't understand the question, and I won't respond to it.

[Season 1, Episode 11]

It doesn't have nearly the same magic without Jessica Walter's exceptional delivery, but this is still one of my favorite jokes from Arrested Development. If you need just a tiny little hit of Jessica Walter to ease the pain of living without Arrested Development, she's also doing some hilarious voice work in FX's animated series Archer.
