Spider-Man Is Filming at Nom Wah Tea Parlor

By Max Kessler
1.  The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be filming at one of our favorite Dim Sum places, Nom Wah Tea Parlor, on Friday. Oh, to be a fly on the wall -- who also eats a couple of shrimp and snap pea dumplings -- for that shoot. [via The Lo-Down]

2.  Seth McFarlane won't be hosting the Oscars again (despite Twitter compliments from celebrities). That's probably for the best. [via Salon]

3.  This is super helpful for anyone who's prone to losing their cell phones while out and about: Nokia now offers this $15 dollar phone whose battery life lasts a month. We'll take three. [via BoingBoing]

4.  Christie's has a new online sale of photographs, prints, T-shirts and drawings by Andy Warhol. Prices start as low as $1,500 (up from $600 already) and are significantly lower than most of his works. Many of the items are unsigned, but we'd still call it somewhat of a steal. [via Telegraph UK]  

5.  The company that owns a majority stake of Standard Hotels, Dune Capital Management, may sell the Standard High Line. No word yet on whether this will affect André Balazs's involvement with the hotel, but woah. [via Crains]

6.  Joanna Newsom and Andy Samberg are now engaged! [via Vulture]

7.  This is weird: Phil Spector's wife, Rachelle Spector, is releasing a new single, "PS I Love You," that's inspired by dramatic moments in Phil's life and will sound similar to his song "To Know Him Is To Love Him." [via Press Release] 

8.  Ever wonder what 80s teen comedy Real Genius would look like as an M. Night Shyamalan psychological thriller? Now you know.
