+ Caroline on Crack gives a positive review to Roscoe's Chicken & Waffles today. She gleefully had a delicious "linner". Caroline wonders why she ordered a side of gravy after finding herself satisfied with the chicken and syrup, but LAist remembers Roscoe's being famous for chicken even more dry than Zankou, so the gravy is recommended for Roscoe's and garlic for Z. Biggest difference: one can arrive at Zankou at 11:01pm and have their late night chicken at 11:02p -- try that at Roscoes.

+ The L.A. Times launches their third opinion blog today. Welcome Bit Player, which promises to cover "Hollywood's Love Hate relationship with Technology." Hollywood has feelings of hate with technology? So, one million Blackberrys can be wrong?
