"You can't take a picture of this. It's already gone."

I'm going to have a busy day at work, but I really needed to share two thoughts with you:

First off, I wanted to say goodbye to Six Feet Under. I really think this was one of my favorite TV shows of all time. This season has not been my favorite. The characters have been suffering a little too much. But finally everyone was able to find their own peace after Nate died. I'm really happy with how most everything turned out, and the epilogue at the end of the final episode was the most satisfying and moving thing I've ever seen on a television show. It was simply perfect. They could not have ended the series any better.

Secondly, me and Danielle and Julie went to see The 40-Year-Old Virgin this weekend. I'd heard a review by David Edelstein from Slate Magazine on NPR, and he didn't have much good to say about it. So I went in with diminished expectations. I'm pleased to report that all my expectations were exceeded. The 40-Year-Old Virgin is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen... like, ever. And much like the Six Feet Under finale, this movie has a brilliant, surprising and satisfying epilogue. I actually can't wait to see this movie again, I loved it so much. You should see it. I mean, right now -- stop what you're doing and go see it.

It is good to know that practically everyone disagrees with Mr. Edelstein. If you ever meet this guy in person, please punch him in the face for me.

And go see the movie.
