comfort movies (you know you have them)

because this time of year I always end up watching movies I've seen 3000 times. it's comforting I guess. but over the summer I am not as tempted to watch these films as I am in the holiday season. maybe it's the cold?

feel free to contribute your own to this list. we should make it GINORMOUS and I'm sure I'm leaving some out anyway. I'm still in a daze because of the snow. somewhere, the angels are doing cocaine.

Elf

I watch this because of Zooey Deschanel. she stole my heart in this film. and it's so hokey but I have yet to get sick of it and I don't know what that says about me.

watch her here!

Love Actually

Whilst reading the Taylor Swift-dedicated issue of US Weekly yesterday, Wenli and I discovered the three of us all love this movie. but who doesn't omg. I don't think I haven't met a girl who hasn't aped over this film at some point and help me baby Jesus but I will watch it every time it comes on.



The Family Stone


I feel like this is a neglected modern day holiday classic. There are blind people and gay people and Sarah Jessica Parker just does not fit in!


I love you Claire Danes. When you appear, you are like an angel.

While You Were Sleeping

I was like five when I first saw this and instantly loved it. I probably thought, in my stupid mind, ONE DAY I AM GOING TO BE SANDRA BULLOCK AND BILL PULLMAN WILL DATE ME AND I WILL GO BE ADOPTED BY A FAMILY THAT ACTUALLY LIKES ME. I'm trying to remember the depiction of adult life I had so young. believe me, I was pretty happy about everything in that part. I was going to have a lot of dogs and adopt a Chinese kid and ride a motorcycle and be like Sandra Bullock. wow.....


she totally made the right choice. Pre-OC Peter Gallagher is like a caveman.

The Holiday

everyone in this movie is really hot but Jack Black. he's still endearing though. and if he can bag Kate Winslet in his film, THEN SO CAN WE ALL. why can't kids always be this cute?



It's a Wonderful Life

You can't beat this film. just can't.


Miracle on 34th Street

I can never make up my mind: the version with Natalie Wood or the version I grew up with?

I dislike whatever the girl is in this film. She was in Matilda? pssssh.



Natalie Wood, as a child, had more talent in her toenail than that bitch.

MOVIES THAT ARE NOT SO CHRISTMASY

The Wedding Singer

I'm pretty sure I have this memorized.

CHRISTINA TAYLOR'S CHARACTER: *throws Rubiks cube* GOD NO ONE IS GOING TO FIGURE THIS THING OUT.

Mannequin


The cheesiest 1980s movie in existence. plus you are watching Kim Cattral before she became a slut.

most Drew Barrymore films
esp. Never Been Kissed and Music and Lyrics

Maid in Manhattan or Two Weeks Notice
I confuse them a lot and I am not sure why.

MOVIES THAT WILL NOT MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD

most films about the Holocaust
Hotel Rwanda
films about kids being killed
Gigli
500 Days of Summer

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

RIP Andy Warpigs

If you're even vaguely familiar with the Phoenix music scene to any extent, you probably knew Andy Warpigs. I saw them a few times at Yucca/Time Out Lounge when I was frequenting both spots a few years ago. Andy Warpigs was one of the most ubiquitous names you could come across, and with good reason - they were an incredibly prolific and talented artist, basically a Phoenix legend.  Unfortunately, over the weekend Andy Warpigs passed away - an extremely tragic loss. If you can possibly donate to the GoFundMe to help Andy's mom with funeral expenses , please do so.  Take care, Britt
