WTF: Margot Robbie


I feel like even Margot herself is like, “I DON’T KNOW EITHER.”

Um, at least it looks breezy? This is what I’m wearing when I finally give up and just check myself into Shady Pines.

GFY Giveaway: All the Ugly and Wonderful Things by Bryn Greenwood


Giveaway time! Today, we’ve got not just a book, but also an awesome necklace (with stamped-penny charms) made by the author herself.  Who can resist a book-centric accessory?

all-the-ugly-and-wonderful

THE PRIZE: Let’s flip the book over and read its description, shall we?

A beautiful and provocative love story between two unlikely people and the hard-won relationship that elevates them above the Midwestern meth lab backdrop of their lives.

As the daughter of a drug dealer, Wavy knows not to trust people, not even her own parents. It’s safer to keep her mouth shut and stay out of sight. Struggling to raise her little brother, Donal, eight-year-old Wavy is the only responsible adult around. Obsessed with the constellations, she finds peace in the starry night sky above the fields behind her house, until one night her star gazing causes an accident. After witnessing his motorcycle wreck, she forms an unusual friendship with one of her father’s thugs, Kellen, a tattooed ex-con with a heart of gold.

By the time Wavy is a teenager, her relationship with Kellen is the only tender thing in a brutal world of addicts and debauchery. When tragedy rips Wavy’s family apart, a well-meaning aunt steps in, and what is beautiful to Wavy looks ugly under the scrutiny of the outside world. A powerful novel you won’t soon forget, Bryn Greenwood’s All the Ugly and Wonderful Things challenges all we know and believe about love.

We have ten copies to give away, each with a necklace –  they are really quite lovely. (I’ve put a photo of them after the jump.)

THE TASK: As ever, I will pick the winners at random. In order to keep it interesting — and because part of this week’s prize pack is a necklace — please comment and tell us what your favorite piece of jewelry is.

THE RULES: All entries must be posted in the comments of this post by 9 p.m. Pacific time on Friday.  FYI, if this is the first time you’ve commented here, the system will automatically kick you into comment moderation, but don’t worry, I will rescue you. (Prizing courtesy of the publisher; open to everyone. Thank you!)

Fugs and Fabs: The Cast of Doctor Strange at Comic-Con, Plus Brie Larson and bonus Hiddles


I sort of wish there were a Comic-Con for costume dramas. In writing today’s posts, I thought to myself, “my god, there are a lot of superhero movies coming out,” and yes, that is true, but also…duh, IT’S COMIC-CON. That said, while I’m not sure Doctor Strange is exactly my bag of marbles (I am 100% unfamiliar with the source material), the premieres are going to be fun, because: SWINTON and Bollychamps Champersglasses together.

If you haven’t seen the trailer for this one yet, it’s here. It contains shirtlessness and a lot of cape action:

Well Played: The Cast of Black Panther at Comic Con


I just want to note that, while I am not a giant fan of superhero movies in general (they’re fine and I enjoy them when I see them; I don’t begrudge you them, they’re just not my personal number one jam as a genre), I would like to thank Marvel for the many many hot and interestingly dressed people they have cast in a variety of films this year. ESPECIALLY THIS ONE.  Accordingly, my aforementioned caveat aside, I would like to purchase tickets to this particular superhero movie right now: Lupita AND Danai, AND Michael B Jordan AND Chadwick Boseman? YES, PLEASE.

Fug or Fab: Gal Gadot at Comic Con, Plus See The Wonder Woman Trailer


First of all, from what I can tell from the pics from this event — and I am sure there are some of you in Fug Nation who were at this panel, in which case, please chime in! — Gal Gadot is CHARMING AS POSSIBLE. Even if her otherwise groovy pants might be a hair too long.

As far as Wonder Woman goes, this premiered at Comic-Con this weekend, and I thought Fug Nation would enjoy seeing it, if you haven’t, yet:

I had very low expectations for this — I LOVE Wonder Woman; you cannot underestimate the impression Lynda Carter made on a six year-old girl — but it looks like it might be really good. At the very very least, how refreshing to see a big budget superhero movie where a woman is, unequivocally, the hero — one directed by a woman, no less. Put on your protective bracelets and behold!
