The flight to New York’s only five hours. You have got to get a grip.
I will totally be watching this on a plane. Don’t doubt it. Or on OWN, since apparently Oprah has already ordered a TV series based on this movie, even though it hasn’t come out yet. Oprah loves being in the Tyler Perry business. Which reminds me: Do I need to be watching The Haves and the Have Nots? Because it looks dramatic whenever I see an ad for it and you know I love drama. Note: Whoever is running Tyler Perry’s website has not realized that building in a widget that pulls the “most popular” comments into its sidebar has led to the following blurb being front and center on the page devoted to The Haves and the Have Nots. A vote against my adding it to my DVR, courtesy of one gentle reader: “I want my precious energy and time back. This was perhaps the most poorly executed drama (soap opera) in history of mankind. The title was good, the idea good. The script and acting HORRIBLE. Absolutely disgusted and disappointed. Wow…Was almost as if each actor / actress read lines from a page while eating cold cereal for the very first time and knowing that diarrhea would soon follow from lactose intolerance. I wanted so badly to find something positive to say but really this was an EPIC fail.” A) That is NOT the blurb you want on the top of your own informational page about a creative project!!!!! And B) I love this person and I hope he or she posts here at GFY because s/he is a wordsmith and we need to hang out.
Also, people wore stuff.
We’ve mentioned this before — even this month, I think — but Heather and I once overheard Brad Goreski giving an interview at Fashion Week wherein he noted that the only way to really pull off the bare midriff thing without going full Lily Collins (I am paraphrasing) was to merely use “a sliver” of ab. And that, I think, is why this works and isn’t full on crackers nutballary:
Pair that top with the stirrup pants that appear to be coming back into fashion, and she’d be the best dressed girl in my fifth grade class. With the matching skirt and kicky shoes, though: Win. (Bonus points for the sunglasses, of course. You know how I feel.)
I feel like all of them are like, “LA LA LA LA LOOK OVER HERE AT MEEEEEEEEEE WILL AND KATE WILL BE BACK EVENTUALLY EVERYTHING IS FINE!” It’s true that hats are a GREAT universal distraction. On the other hand, even the street signs are pressuring Harry to get married. Lay off, street signs!
[Speaking of all things royal, this seems as good a time as any to let you royal watchers know that we've put up a post on our book blog about the shenanigans we got up to in England at the start of this year, while we were over there researching The Royal We. Yes, that post includes both buttresses and futuristic pods in which to whizz.]
It’s nice of them to give the Mars fans lots of material to squee over. Me, I wish Alex O’Loughlin would reunite with Jason Dohring for a movie version of Moonlight, where he was a vampire/PI who could smell the past — NO, LITERALLY — and Dohring was his depressed, bad-boy vampire mentor/fiend who moped a lot whilst wearing vests. That’s my Kickstarter, you guys.
Guess what’s boring? This show. Even though our protagonist has a mysterious brain fog and Gail O’Grady is, frankly, awesome. At least Nolan wore a shirt covered in puppies?
