I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Tina Fey is a choir nerd. It’s most clear to me from intense readings of Bossypants - she mentions that she was in audition-only choirs and it was a big deal, in a way that is clearly joking-but-not-joking. You get the impression that even though she’s an extremely successful writer and actress with a deeply enviable show business career, that she might be just as proud of her choir cred. Full Story

Before Lainey dreamed about being the dean of celebrity studies at a small liberal arts college somewhere in New England, we would talk about how great it would be just to be perpetual students, deep in studying for learning’s sake, not for a degree and a job, Hermione Granger style. But secretly, I sometimes doubted I would have the…I don’t know… silence tolerance. Full Story
