Lena Dunham’s new memoir, Not That Kind of Girl, is written with just the sort of unabashed honesty and self-depricating wit you’d expect from the voice of her generation — or at least, “the voice of a generation.” And it also reveals the extent to which her personal experiences — some of them , some of them hilarious — have seeped into her work.

The Lowline folks are on a roll. Less than a month after a lucrative benefit netted them $30,000 for their ambitious underground park project, they’ve released a save-the-date for their Anti-Gala 2014. The no doubt glitzy October 8 event will be the third such—with this year’s iteration set to be hosted by none other than Spike Jonze and Lena Dunham. Individual tickets are retailing for $1,500, while a table will set you back $25,000.

Did you miss “Too Many Lenas,” the loving spoof of Lena Dunham and her characters that we told you about last week? Well, then you missed two Lenas playing Chubby Bunny, a monologue rife with breakfast-themed double entendres, a human-sized cake, topless doubles ping-pong, masturbation to a Woody Allen film, and zingers like “Does curly hair make me ethnic?” But don’t worry: Bedford + Bowery has secured this clip of Sam Corbin as Self-Depicted Lena. Just a little something to tide you over until the real Lena returns to HBO.
