Apatovian Comedy Factory

Jessica posted on Jessica Rules the Universe, "I declared the Apatovian series consisting of The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up, and Superbad The Godfather trilogy of our time, only instead of whacking each other the guys just whack off."

According to David Denby of The New Yorker, Apatovian is "a mixture of desperately filthy talk and the most tender, even delicate, emotion."

"Icky Thump"

"Icky Thump" is a song recorded by The White Stripes. Written by band member Jack White, it is the first single released from the White Stripes' sixth album of the same name. The name of the track comes from the Northern England exclamation "Ecky Thump," roughly meaning "what the heck?" The title was then changed to "Icky" so that "teenagers would understand it better back in America," in the same way Led Zeppelin took out the "a" so kids wouldn't call them 'Lead Zeppelin' (pronounced 'leed')" (Wikipedia)

David O. Russell Meltdown

David Owen Russell (born 20 August 1958 in New York) is an American film director and screenwriter. He directed and wrote "Three Kings" and the existential comedy "I ♥ Huckabees." Earlier films include independent films "Flirting with Disaster" and "Spanking the Monkey." (Wikipedia)

Jim and Pam Together

Suzanne McDonough wrote on Prime Time Sitcoms, "Interest in the US TV show "The Office" has grown as a result of its characters' Pam (Jenna Fischer) and Jim (John Krasinski) inability to get together. At the end of the third season, the long, angsty love story between Pam and Jim seems to have all of the stars aligned for the two to finally end up together. At the very least they are actually going to go on a date. Will viewing audiences tune in if they manage to get together? But will this kill the hit show?"

Bacon-Flavored Chocolate Bar

Applewood smoked bacon + Alder smoked salt + deep milk chocolate Deep milk chocolate coats your mouth and leads to the crunch of smoked bacon pieces. Surprise your mouth with the smoked salt and sweet milk chocolate.

Crisp, buttery, compulsively irresistible bacon and milk chocolate combination has long been a favorite of mine. I started playing with this combination at the tender age of six while eating chocolate chip pancakes drenched in maple syrup. Beside my chocolate-laden cakes laid three strips of fried bacon, just barely touching a sweet pool of maple syrup. Just a bite of the bacon was too salty and yearned for the sweet kiss of chocolate syrup. In retrospect, perhaps this was a turning point, for on that plate something magical happened: the beginnings of a combination so ethereal and delicious that it would haunt my thoughts until I found the medium to express it--chocolate. --Katrina (Vosges Chocolate)
