Anna Paquin’s Interview with a Vampire

King: “Are you a non-practicing bisexual?”

Paquin: “Well, I am married to my husband and we are happily, monogamously married.”

King: “But you were bisexual?”

Paquin: “Well, I don’t think it’s a past-tense thing.”

Larry King: “No?”

Paquin: “No. Are you still straight if you are with somebody, and — if you were to break up with them or if they were to die, it doesn’t prevent your sexuality from existing. It doesn’t really work like that.”

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.
