Rub Wrongways Caravan Supergroup - New York Edition (Bored To Death)

There's no reason why I wouldn't dig the new HBO series "Bored To Death". It's geared directly to me. And I do dig it. It's gear. The show takes place in New York City. In the first episode, Jason Schwartzman's character visits the Parkside Lounge to do some detective work. The Parkside Lounge! Hey wait a minute, I know that place. In fact, look who's going to be there this!

In the TV show the Parkside sits alone on an empty dark street. In real life, there's a whole lot of traffic (both on the street and on the sidewalk). When Schwartzman walks in the place is almost empty (like it would/should be in a noir show with a bent towards ennui), in real life that small front room would be packed with people. The bartender on the show is a big tough guy. Maybe he really works there, but I'm leaning more towards a black haired, tattooed young lady in real life. In the shot, you can hear a band in the background. In real life, that would be us, The Rub Wrongways Caravan of Stars.
