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

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

Summer Playlist - 2022 Edition!

 It's truly the little things in life that make a world of difference. And for me, that means my summer playlist! Behold, I have put together 2022's edition. It includes cuts from artists like: - Mitski - Uffie - Johnny Orlando - Kylie Minogue + Jessie Ware - Florence and the Machine (who put out a fantastic album this year after a long dry spell of kind of "meh" records. Her pairing with Jack Antonoff worked out quite well!)  - Bilal - Harry Styles (he has some catchy music!)  - KATE BUSH DUH - And of course, Lana. It's also available on Apple Music, but since I recognize a lot of folks use Spotify, here's that link. Enjoy!
