Patton Oswalt knows his coffee, apparently.
After settling in for coffee and pastries at Handsome Coffee Roasters, this conversation ensues.
"Give me the downtown LA starter kit. What do you need?"
- "You need a World War I British messenger bag, and that's where you put your laptop in."
- "You need a really overbred, not healthy dog like a French bulldog or something that's been bred for a certain look but that's also kind of dying. And you walk that around, and it has to have a harness because its neck is all messed up."
- "You have to be very white, and you read Salon.com, and you're all about [being] comfortable with diversity, but secretly you're terrified of other races."
"Are any bright colors allowed, or do we have to keep it subdued?"
"Very, very subdued."
"Why, cause we're depressed?"
"No, because hey, you're serious, man. If you have any bright colors, it's going to be on your Etsy site, or it's going to be on that bit of graffiti art that you paid to have put on the inside of your work loft space to show how eclectic and dangerous you are."
Starts at 8:29, but worth watching the whole thing. Great coffee shots, too :)
