New Brain Filler up - “Your Guide to Fictional Little People.” This (partially) explains why I was researching the average height of Smurfs a few weeks ago.
Still catching up on some business. Dan Gurewitch and Patrick Cassels have new blogs, and the Internet is richer for it. Bullying people into using blogging platform Tumblr is the closest thing we have to peer pressure at our office. Kevin, you’re next.
I dislike when bloggers start sentences with the words, “I think.” You are at JeffRubinJeffRubin.com, so assume everything you read here is something I think. That’s why my last post sounded so cocky.

Patrick and I have another Brain Filler up on CollegeHumor - A Brief History Of Cars Crashing Through Walls On Sitcoms. A special thanks is JeffRubinJeffRubin readers, who helped track down both the Family Matters and Happy Days. I’m fairly handy with trivia, but while researching this clip I found something that really impressed me. On the TV.com page for Everybody Loves Raymond episode...

We need season 7’s “Marion Goes to Jail.” Happy Days (literally) jumped the shark in season 5, so only the first 3 seasons are on DVD. I...

The CollegeHumor All Nighter was enormously fun. I want to thank the people we talked with in the chat room all night, who had such specific questions that they are obviously reading this (and every CH) blog. We had a lot of fun on the live stream, and it definitely kept everyone going even when things hit a lull. All ten videos we made overnight are collected in one place here.
CollegeHumor All Nighter is underway. Tune in and watch our progress all night at www.collegehumor.com/allnighter.
