I’m throwing some birthday wishes to actress Natalie Portman today (and not only because it gives me an excuse to post these clips from Garden State). Happy birthday Natalie. Here’ Largeman, his new friend Sam, and the Shins.

Garden State Music Video with New Slang by The Shins


Running a little slow trying to get through the day?  Get your slow-goove on to this vid for “New Slang” by the Shins.

And yeah monkey, before you ask, this is me basking in the awesomeness of Garden State.
