Because it’s the 2010′s, and everything that exists has to be a food truck, pop-up shop, or infiltrated by a flash mob, Warner Bros. has announced that they’re going to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Friends premiere by recreating the hangout of the gang, Central Perk, in NYC for a month.

It won’t actually be a business, but will give away free coffee, offer contests, and weekly singalongs to Phoebe’s songs. Hmm. That sounds more like “hell” than a coffee shop, but whatever.

The shop will be at 199 Lafeyette St. in Soho, which means rent on this thing for a month will probably be around $72 million.

And, yes, James Michael Tyler, who plays Gunther, will be there making “special appearances.” I mean, as special as an appearance by James Michael Tyler can be.

The coffee shop will be open from September 17th to October 18th.

As Hurricane Irene is certain to kill me and the rest of those in New York‘s Zone B, I figure there’s a few things I need to do before I die. And since there aren’t any marathons to run or continuing ed classes going on in the next 48 hours, I suppose I’d better take the opportunity to watch those classic films that people always give me a hard time about not having seen. Assuming the power stays on.

Casablanca

This classic romantic drama starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Berman is just about one of the most famous films ever made. But I skipped Film One that day so I didn’t get to see it. Though my dorm-mate was there and passed on his review to me that it is “an enjoyable film with Nazis and stuff.”

The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension

This is a film that I’ve heard about my entire life, but haven’t had the opportunity to see. It draws reactions of shock when friends find this out. However, I know nothing about the sci-fi spoof. In fact, I just learned that it follows a physicist/neurosurgeon/rock star as he battles aliens. This is normally the kind of thing I’d be all over but it somehow escaped my radar.

Platoon

Though I haven’t seen the first film in Oliver Stone‘s Vietnam War trilogy, I did watch my friend Nate play some of the video game before school. I think that should count.

If you’re wondering why we’re not updating, you can blame it on the East Coast Earthquake. My writer, Wookie Johnson, was working on an article, but he literally had to evacuate his office in New York because of the shaking.

Here’s hoping he makes it out OK. God Speed, Wookie! Stay safe. No one will work as cheap as you.
