Link-Heavy Post With No Mention of Music

Ian McKellan on acting (via the Ricky Gervais series Extras). Maybe I was just in a good mood when I watched this on Sunday but it's kind of brilliant.

If you've traveled on Beverly Blvd. in Los Angeles, just west of Vermont, please confirm that the JollyBee restaurant there is a beautiful and amazing cultural artifact.

Here's Will Shortz's NPR puzzle for the week:
By using only the letters in the phrase "Triple Mocha," and repeating them as often as you wish, you can spell the name of another cold treat. The answer consists of four words, with a total of twenty one letters. What is it?
He's finally outsmarted the Anagram Finder users by allowing us to repeat the letters "as often as we wish."

More statistics and graphs from the folks at freedarko (takes forever to load).
