Jim McKay had to tell the whole world about this horrible thing that had happened and the lives lost so needlessly. He kept his cool, did it with dignity and humanity. There were many heroes on that terrible, awful day. He was one of them.

Please remove the fruit bowl immediately. It's distracting me from the donuts.

Anyone who doesn't think hip-hop belongs in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, I suggest you do two things: 1) Take a basic history of American Music class and 2) take your greviences to likes of future inductees like Dave Grohl, Tom Morello and Trent Reznor who think you are full of shit.

#DYK? The cake is fake. They tried to shoot the scene with a real cake but the candles kept melting it. 

Also, the crew scratched the hell out of the dining room table, which belonged to the actual owners of Jake Ryan's house. But they replaced it!

The Korean actor was Steve Park from In Living Color and Saturday Night Live. And I believe Frank Vincent, who played the guy in his car who got soaked by the fire hydrant is deceased also.

Favorite part. When the music stops and Mozart busts one.
