On this lazy (observed) 4th of July, we're not too motivated to check out the pseudo-comedians of the "Last Comic Standing" so we'll be enjoying a classic (classic) and classic (modern) pair of movies: To Kill a Mockingbird with Gregory Peck, and the Coen Brothers' Barton Fink. Since late night is all reruns (other than "The Daily Show" and "Colbert Report") we're taking the opportunity to hit the hay in anticipation of tomorrow morning's predicted-to-be-epic stage of the Tour de France (starts 5:30am on Versus) which will cover narrow and dangerous sections of cobblestone roads and the World Cup match of the Netherlands vs Uruguay (11:30am on ESPN HD).

Next week's New Yorker has a cool piece in the "The Talk of the Town" section about James Franco's live taping of "General Hospital" at the Pacific Design Center. It sounds like "Soap at MOCA" was a lot of fun and it was cool to enjoy it vicariously in the article.
