in honor of my mom's birthday

Jane Eyre comes out tomorrow. I have to say it looks pretty good, although it's missing Charlotte Gainsbourg (wistful sigh). I've never finished reading the book and am in the process of doing so currently. I know right? LOOK AT THE POORLY READ ENGLISH MAJOR I READ THAT IN PRESCHOOL (fuck you) anyway I've been told this is a darker, more traditional version of the book about a crazy bitch living in an attic whose husband falls in love with the morose governess. I'm not much on Jane Austen, either. Sorry Simon.

so will you see this movie?
or will you just play "Wuthering Heights" loudly in your bedroom and practice your ballet moves?

happy birthday Mom! (it's her favorite book)


  1. hahaha I love your synopsis. It kind of makes me want to write a prequel, title it 'Bertha' and get $2 million for the movie rights.

    wait, that's not a bad idea!

    I am so freaking excited for this movie and for Red Riding Hood. Can we have a Cloaked Heroine Double Feature? Man those european chicks dig their capes.

  2. I just read a review of Red Riding Hood, and they were like BLAH BLAH BLAH BORRRRRRRING. I can believe it. Catherine Hardwick should stick to what she knows: messed up, hyper-sexual 13-year-olds. I think RRH is worth it for the costumes and Amanda and Gary, though.

    also, I am BEYOND upset that Jane Eyre only opens in NYC and LA for now. WTF.

  3. it actually looks better than most of the middle of the road BBC period dramas that have done Jane Eyre. The problem is that the BBC tend to downplay the darker aspects of each text(ie. Tess of the D'Urbevilles) and turn the book material into the cinematic version of a Mills and Boon novel.

"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
