this movie won my heart based on one preview

last night when I locked myself in the basement to waste away on the stationary bike (mmmmmph) I caught a good portion of "Win a Date With Tad Hamilton!" which is like, one of those weird movies I will watch on occasion because it reminds me of being fifteen, lying on my stomach in front of the TV and wondering where my life went (or where is it going?). and it makes me wonder what happened to Topher Grace's career? (see what happens when you think too much of yourself, ERIC FORMAN!)

anyway, during this hour or so I will never retrieve, I was formally introduced to the upcoming movie "Away We Go!" Now I'd heard about it and the brouhaha concerning Dave Eggers as the screenwriter, but I'd never given it a chance to - mmm, marinade - simply because I find Eggers hard to swallow. I tried "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius." it's dog-eared after twenty-five pages and then I threw it against my bedroom wall (hmm). "What Is the What," however, was an amazing book that I'll recommend to you, fullheartedly. I still need to give a few of his other books chances, mainly "And You Will Know Us By Our Velocity!" because of that white guilt et al.


a.) THE CAST (I really, really, really love Maggie Gyllenhaal)
b.) THE SOUNDTRACK (Alexi Murdoch, you're sounding a suspicious amount like Andrew Bird)

I figure, Sam Mendes by way of Dave Eggers (or vice versa), Eggers has seemed less of a douchebag in recent years, so this movie is worth my time. or, it just looks fucking cute in an oddball way and I want to invest in it.

it will be out June 5th in everywhere across this beautiful country but Erie, of course. until then, I'll have to go see "Up!" and the second "Night at the Museum" because I'm a big six year old at heart. now where are my skittles.

  1. uhhh totally want to see night at the museum 2, also!

    (I heard they stuff so many historical figures into it that it's 'frenzied' but I'm not expecting Schindler's List or anything, so I think it will still be totes enjoyable.)

  2. LOL. I looooove your blog. I'm thouroughly enjoying reading it. Especially this post. I can't wait to see this movie either! I just watched the preview today. I'm trying to start my own movie blog too. I really want to get into something like that, I really think I'll like it. Hopefully I'll have more time over the summer though. And hopefully you won't stop writing because I found myself ROFLing for about ten minutes [=[=

    Keep up the awesome job <3

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

Appropriate Holiday Gift Ideas for the Single Lady

While some people may see it as a drag, there are plenty of benefits to being single during the holiday season. During this time of the year, there are tons of parties you can attend that you may not have had the opportunity to if you were in a relationship. There’s also not as much stress on you as a single gal during the holidays because you don’t have to shop for your partner and extended family members  or  stress over where to eat Christmas dinner.  Not everyone sees the bright side of being fancy free during the holidays, and, tragically, they aren't afraid to let us single ladies know. Not only are single women subjected to even more harassment and ridicule during the holiday season, they’re also given the most obnoxious gifts by those who can’t comprehend how anyone can be both happy and single. Whether it’s a self-help book (desperately) trying to reinforce how great is to be single or the gift of a year-long subscription to , single women are presented with

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawson, send it
