Hey, What’s Up With Topher Grace?

Videogum mascot Topher Grace has a new sitcom at ABC called Home Economics, scheduled to premiere April 7. The show is about three siblings with varied levels of success in life: one super rich, one just getting by, and one in the middle class.

Per Varriety: “Grace will play Tom, the middle sibling both in age and economic status. The character is described as an intellectual, a novelist who’s had a couple books that sold decently, but his last one did not. He strives to be where his brother is financially, but fears he’ll slip down to his sister’s level. He’s in a creative field, so his income fluctuates. That wasn’t such a concern when he was starting out, but now he’s plagued by financial anxiety after having twins.”

Despite that not sounding very funny (that description sounds like an algorithm wrote it rather than a person), I’ll check it out for nostalgia if nothing else.

What’s up with everyone else these days? I hope everyone is recovering from the storms and has their electricity back.

    I’ve been getting out most afternoons to exercise while listening to podcasts. I set up a run/walk workout on this timer app I use so I’m trying to increase the amount of running in between two-minute walks. I’m up to 3:30 this week!

    I’m not sure how many of you will see this, so I will probably recommend the following things more than once.

    – The Great on Hulu is darkly funny and an absolute delight.
    – Palm Springs was a very good movie.
    – You’re Wrong About is an excellent podcast.

    I hope you are all doing well and staying safe!

    I had a difficult February, to be honest! I didn’t post because I didn’t feel like I had the bandwidth. Which is insane. It takes zero bandwidth. But every single task felt like pulling a tooth. Hooray, though, I’m back in business now. Not fully manic, which is my preference, but certainly operational. And what am I doing, now, with all this energy and focus? Well. Still not much.
    I have watched quite a lot of shows and movies. Last night I watched Friday the 13th Part III (it is not one of the good ones! But I’d never seen it before and so it was filed under Important Unfinished Business) and Vamp, the 1980s horror-comedy (an uphill combination) starring Grace Jones. I saw this movie actually in the 1980s, as I am a thousand. I rented it with a friend and we were like “Pfff, Grace Jones was hardly in it. And they made her ugly instead of cool as fuck.” Still true! On a rewatch I was also shocked to remember that I’d had a huge crush on the lead girl, Dedee Pfieffer. Back then I just thought she was heart-meltingly cute. But now, as a wise adult who has been exposed to a lot of emotionally unwell people on Twitter, I was impressed at what a specific job she does at capturing “strip joint waitress with a heart of gold.” Like she really has the NO, I AM FINE, I BELIEVE IT down pat. Also she IS astonishingly cute, Kid Me got that right. I wish this was a better movie because actually Grace Jones is excellent in her 12 minutes without the uggo vampire makeup and it has a lot of 80s visual style.
    In real news, my parents are both vaccinated, which is great. Hope your guys’s are too.
