I went to the opening-night Factory Girl party for the Santa Barbara Film Festival last night, but I couldn’t get into the groove today. I blew off the Sacha Baron Cohen discussion at the Lobero early this afternoon, and then I couldn’t bring myself to attend the Helen Mirren tribute this evening at the Arlington. I don’t know why, but maybe I’m just feeling Cohen-ed and Mirren-ed out. (A lot of us are, no?) I promise to do better tomorrow. Apologies to Roger Durling and the gang — just an “off” day. (Or something.)

A dull photo because I was too lazy to snap a better one.
