Earlier this year, we told you about the instant-classic jingle sent in the direction of KCRW DJ Anne Litt by singer Josh Groban. Based on today’s Instagram share, it looks like the relationship is still going strong.
Groban quickly re-tweeted the above photo of Litt shared @kcrw and assured that he still stands by Litt’s side:

Patton Oswalt has gone total fanboy over the popular British period drama Downtown Abbey. The Los Angeles-based comedian declared himself “as besotted as a vicar at a crumpet orgy” over the show, and he enthusiastically live-tweeted his viewing of the 2nd season premiere.
But he took things to a new level this weekend when he posted this dashing photo of himself on Twitter, saying:
Consider this my audition, DOWNTON ABBEY. Season 3. Philbrick, the scone-stealing valet.
C’mon, England. This just has to happen.

LA Times journo Robert Faturechi tweets some choice passages from the most recent Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department newsletter–reacting to the Times‘ and your humble Fishie’s recent stories about inmate abuse and supervisory incompetence inside the Sheriff’s Department.
I’m not sure whether to be offended or flattered by the whole “(esp. the Times)” part. Was the omission of my name a begrudging acknowledgment of my story? Or am I just small potatoes not worth mentioning? Either way, for those union members who enjoy the status quo (and the various Federal criminal investigations originating from that status quo), that “dreary” feeling isn’t going to go away anytime soon. The LA Justice Report is launching the third part of its investigation next week.
Los Angeles Film Critics Association President Brent Simon nicely illustrates the downside of crowd-sourced film criticism in today’s tweet o’ the day. Nicely done, sir.
Something tells us said-UPS guy is probably a Yelper too. The one who inexplicably gave Luscious Dumplings one star. A borderline criminal offense.
Looks like the good folks at the San Gabriel Valley Tribune completely missed out on all the 11:11 11/11/11 craziness. Too bad. Not to rub it in or anything, but we here at FishbowlLA celebrated by heading to Hooters–where we took 11 shots, drank 11 beers, ate 11 chicken wings, blew 11 lines of coke in the bathroom and ogled 11 breasts. It was spectacular. We’re all still high-fiving each other.
Any SGVT folks out there who want to share their broken plans, we’d love to hear what you had in mind.
