I'm on an airplane

Right now I am on an airplane. That's right, my airplane has internet! I am really excited about it.

I am on an airplane because I am heading home to the West Coast for Thanksgiving. I am really excited about seeing my family, my dog, and all my friends.

The Richanbach household has rented three movies that seem to be typical of a holiday weekend for us. Start Trek (the new one), Miracle on 34th St (it was a tough choice between Natalie Wood and Dylan McDermott, but Dylan McDermott won), and Rear Window.

See you in a few hours West Coast!

Hennigans Scotch

This weekend my friends Jonas Sees in Color are going to be in town from North Carolina. We are going to go and enjoy the city tonight, and maybe track down some Hennigans Scotch...

Also, have you heard of Whiskey Dinner at L'Ecole? It is a six course meal paired with single malt Whiskey. Mmmmmm, delicious.

I definitely procrastinated with this video yesterday.

Thanks Swiss-Miss.

It's Always Sunny

Let me tell you what I am excited about tonight. Having It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia on DVR. Kitten mittens rocked my world two weeks ago, and Charlie's mind blew my mind last week. I am excited to see what is in store.

The reason I must DVR it though is because my lovely roommate and I are going to see Coco Avant Chanel at the Paris Theater. We have been planning on doing this for weeks, and feel it is a very good choice for our inaugural film at the theater.

Au Revoir!

Harry Connick Jr.

I am normally opposed to listening to Christmas music before Thanksgiving. I really like Thanksgiving, so I like to give it its time, then I still have a whole month to get excited about Christmas. But when the Christmas songs are being sung live to your by Harrick Connick Jr. I make an exception.

Tuesday was the unveiling of the Bloomingdale's Holiday windows (which are all sparkly!), and to celebrate the unveiling Harry Connick Jr. did a little performance on Third Avenue. I work across the street from Bloomindale's so of course my co-worker and I took a little fieldtrip across the street to see the man himself.

The photos are from his performance, sorry they are all blurry and you can't see his pretty face. I was close enough where I could, but my iPhone was apparently not aware of that. I do like the colors in the photos though.

Outside The Strand

I don't walk by The Strand as often as I used to. That is probably a good thing, considering I always find myself looking at the books they have outside and buying one or two, and my apartment does not have enough space many more books. Above our a couple of covers that caught my eye when I did walk by The Strand yesterday.

I also bought Little Women for 48¢. BOOYA!

Yesterday my brother and I went and saw Jude Law in Hamlet. In preparation we watched Jude Law on Jimmy Fallon reciting Lady Gaga. That man is even sexy reading poker face.

"I want to ride my bicycle!!!!" - Queen

I have been craving a bicycle for a long time. First I felt like my neighborhood was not very bicycle friendly, now I live in a walk up with no space to store a bike. But when I am running late to class I think about how splendid it would be to be gliding along 9th St on a bicycle.

Bike's have also been popping up all over the place (which I guess isn't too unusual).

Joanna posted about bikes/parisian lifestyle over on Cup of Jo as part of her research for her YSL project. Um, yes I would love to be fabulous faux Parisian on a bike in New York City. Way to read my mind Joanna....

AND I read a spectacular article in the NY Times about Mark Paul Gosselar and his biking ways. So great, another reason to ride a bike, so I can become Zach Morris' friend. Though I have a feeling my biking wouldn't extend much beyond biking around the neighborhood.

'Arry Potter

I have recently become a little obsessed with Tumblrs. I love my blog roll, but sometimes I do not have energy for them. The tumblrs are a wonderful way to enjoy a stream of images. This is one that I grabbed from Tree Castles(though I enjoy their url name "my peter pan complex" a little more) recently. I bet way too much of my harddrive space is taken up by tumblr and ffffound images.

I may be Elaine Benes...

Last night I was watching "The Lip Reader" episode of Seinfeld, and I realized that the hundreds of hours I have spent watching Seinfeld has impacted my personality pretty severely...

1) I think Elaine Benes has made me a violent person.
Have you ever noticed how much Elaine shoves and smacks Jerry, Kramer, and George? Yah, I tend to do that.

2) Seinfeld has defined my ethical viewpoint
For better or for worse Seinfeld has defined what I see as right and wrong. Yes I do think people are the worse and I do think I should be treated like Ted Danson.

Demand Jonas Sees in Color in your City!

I work at an awesome label called Glassnote Records. I have written about our bands before, including Phoenix, The Temper Trap, and Mumford & Sons. One of our newest bands is Jonas Sees in Color. They absolutely blew me away when I saw them live. And to add to that they are just a great group of people.

Right now they are having a contest where YOU get to decide where they go on their first tour. You can demand them to play in your city through their eventful profile, and they will come play in the top ten requested cities. VOTE NOW!

When Harry Met Sally

The previous post is pretty much the premise of one of my favorite movie of all time, "When Harry Met Sally". To hear Harry's point of view on the subject matter check out the video above.

Just friends? Sure.....

Wow, this image is too true. I am trying to think of a straight friend, who I was actually friends with, who I never had a crush on even for a smidge of time. I am finding this list to be really short/non-existent.

What about you guys? Have you ever just been friends with another boy or girl?

I saw this video posted on my good friend's Jonas Sees in Color wall, and was really hoping it would be the band in the video. I was mildly disappoint that it wasn't them, but that disappointment quickly went away because this video is so fantastic.

If you have heard of Jonas Sees In Color, who should check them out right after you watch the video above. Their album just came out this September, their music is the bomb and they as people are just hillarious.

I hope you all had a scary halloween. Mitch and I going out as Taylor and Brad was a complete success. (See photos above)

We went to the Vice party in Brooklyn which had 1994 theme. There were Kurt Cobains and Coutney Loves abound. One of my favorite costumes was Andre Agassi with a full head of hair circa '94.

The party was great (open bar!), which probably lead to our decision to have Mitch/Brad crowd surf, and then him being dropped and getting a hefty gash on his head. Don't worry he is fine, it actually served as quite the punctuation to AN AMAZING HALLOWEEN.

Love you Brad!
