clap clap blog: we have moved

Just on the off chance that you do not check Quo Vadimus daily, you owe it to yourself to go read this, a report on a Gilmore Girls panel in which it is revealed that Sebastian Bach is even more awesome than you let yourself imagine. It's like if the Beatles actually did all live in the same house, with individual cool beds! Well, not really, but kinda.

Last night's episode was fantastic, helped maybe by the fact that I'd only just watched last week's the night before. (Dinner at Mrs. Kim's = splendiferously hilarious.) The indie rock bits in the beginning were cringy, but were fully redeemed with the Fifth Dimension riff at the wedding reception, a lovely little acknowledgement of the way older folks latch onto one or two totally random pop songs. Everything else was great. Nice to see Rory finally, um, coming into her own, really well-played scene between Luke and Emily in the garage, the bachelorette party, the crazy aunt (not the smelly one), and, of course, "Don't keep a roomful of Anglo-Saxons waiting for cake, they're likely to start forming even smaller clubs."

ADDENDUM: Cringy though it was, this exchange is a pretty good illustration of why the band in question rubs me the wrong way right now:

Rory: Do you like the Arcade Fire?
Lorelai: I don't know. Do I?
Rory: Yes you do.

Hey! Maybe no she doesn't!

I prefer to think that Lorelai really likes Andrew WK and Shakira, but maybe that's just projection.
