13) The Comedy Bureau extends as much gratitude as we can muster to the inimitable Maria Bamford for her support of us as well as her general, to use a word of hers, AWESOMENESS, and unbridled hilarity. If you’re somehow unaware of who she is and somehow reading this, go to The Dork Forest Live @ Nerdist Theater tonight and get in the know.

14) Transformers 3 vs. Casey Anthony vs. Tree of Life vs. Something actually interesting?  Which will be the most popular topic tonight at open mics?  We’re talking to you, @boopityba #openmics #unurban.
