“Here’s the thing about Julia. She’s a professional. She’s kind. She’s super smart. But at the end of the day, she’s fucking hilarious. It’s just so fun to be around her.” - Amy Poehler

WHAT THIS EXISTS FUCK
Panorama? When did this happen?
Pitchfork’s comma use suggests they may have been bought out by The Guardian. Most American style guides recommend keeping punctuation inside quotes, while many blogs seem to follow the British approach, which is certainly more logical (it avoids making punctuation an accomplice), even though I find it aesthetically discomforting (and anti-American!). There is one incongruity: Ed Droste’s first quote conforms to common rules of attribution (he said, she said, etc.), keeping the comma inside the quote. The visual inconsistency irks me, in spite of its logic. I would also like to point out an unfortunate “missed opportunity” for a semi-colon (the most provocative of punctuation marks whose prevalence on grad school dissertations is now vindicated by its near absence on Twitter). Otherwise, the post reflects solid grammar (album titles in italics, song titles in “quotes,” and intelligent distinction between “their” and “they are.”) I should point out that TV shows should technically be in italics, but who’s keeping track? Apocalypse Wow. (Just one more thing: whatever happened to “smart quotes”?)
John Krasinski wrote what’s inside the card at some point prior to us shooting the scene for A.A.R.M. and it is a private message to his co-star and dear friend, Jenna Fischer. They are the only ones who knows what it says. She read it for the first time when he gave it to her in the first take we shot and I can tell you that judging from her emotional response, it’s really something special.
