Hank’s Look-Around Café

Take your meal on a rickety, spinning adventure with this supercut of most (all?) references to Hank’s Look-Around Café. One of my favorite episodes of The Larry Sanders Show is undoubtedly The Grand Opening but it’s hard to pick favorites with a show that has so much nuance. It’s brilliant, really, from writing to casting and everything in-between.

I’ve always been one to say, at least for my money,
That, uh, nothing really aids digestion quite like centrifugal force.

That’s Hank’s Look-Around Café, 336 Melrose. Go ahead.

Bizarre Celebrations: Happy New Year

a Happy New Year’s Eve deserves a happy song, imo

Let’s have bizarre celebrations…

Let’s forget who, forget what, forget where.
We’ll have bizarre celebrations…
I’ll play the Satyr in Cyprus, you the bride being stripped bare.

Let’s pretend we don’t exist, let’s pretend we’re in Antarctica.
Let’s pretend we don’t exist, let’s pretend we’re in Antarctica.

Let’s have bizarre celebrations … let’s forget when, forget what, forget how.
We’ll have bizarre celebrations … we’ll play Tristan and Iseult, but make sure I see white sails.

Let’s pretend we don’t exist, let’s pretend we’re in Antarctica.
Let’s pretend we don’t exist, let’s pretend we’re in Antarctica.

Maybe I’ll never die, I’ll just keep growing younger with you, and you’ll grow younger, too.
Now it seems too lovely to be true, but I know the best things always do.

Let’s pretend we don’t exist, let’s pretend we’re in Antarctica.
