What are you reading?

It’s cold and grey outside, but according to the calendar, summer is here! Any beach reads on your list? Any stay-inside-reads on your list? I personally am in a rut when it comes to picking reading material. The last couple of years I found some crime/detective novel authors I liked and read through all their series. Now I need something new! So if you have any hot tips on new or old books you love, please share. Continue reading

Hey, What’s Up With Topher Grace?

Our beloved Gabe and Kelly over at Videogum (RIP) used to keep us updated on the happenings of America’s sweetheart Topher Grace. In the absence of that classic column, I have no idea what is up with Topher Grace. So imagine my surprise to see him when I sat down for the first episode of The Hot Zone, the National Geographic miniseries about Ebola!

How was your weekend?

How did you spend your precious time on this planet over the long weekend? I went out to lunch with friends twice and had a first date last night but otherwise I can’t really account for my actions. I know I did laundry. I swiped through 4,000 men on dating apps. Probably stared at the television. I hope you all fared better.

Eurovision Song Contest 2019: better late than never?


It breaks my heart that I wasn’t able to provide you with the now-customary semi-finals and final blogs for this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. OF COURSE I was watching, but my current project is a bit all-consuming, plus I’m living away from home which is emotionally all-consuming, plus plus plus – enough of the excuses.

Here’s ya post.

How is your day?

So I’ve been dumped via silent treatment/subsequent text messaging. And while my brain is aware that such behavior should result in an Ariana Grande-style “Thank u, next” reaction, it’s actually pretty tough to deal with. Can we do some fun gifs? Or if you’re having a tough day some commiseration? Or, please lord, some good news if you have it?

Tuesday TV (and Movie) Talk

Big news yesterday: John Wick Chapter 4 has a release date of May 21, 2021. Who’s seen chapter 3? Loving John Wick is basically my number one defining personality trait at this point so I was there opening night. What TV shows are we all watching? Oh I guess I’d be interested to hear everyone’s thoughts on the GOT finale, although I personally cared more about the Survivor finale. Is anyone watching The 100? You should be!

Book Club is ON. And What Are You Watching?


I’m back, people, and book club is happening for all us book nerds out there. We’re reading (or have already read) Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book. Here’s a synopsis:

Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy.

He would be completely normal if he didn’t live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead.

There are dangers and adventures in the graveyard for a boy — an ancient Indigo Man beneath the hill, a gateway to a desert leading to an abandoned city of ghouls, the strange and terrible menace of the Sleer.

But if Bod leaves the graveyard, then he will come under attack from the man Jack — who has already killed Bod’s family…

Oooh, what’s a Sleer? I don’t know but I want to!

We’ll be discussing this eerie tale next Tuesday, May 21, though you can always comment on the thread afterwards.

On other not-really-news, because who wants to read the real news anyway, what’s everybody watching? I finished Season 2 of The Imposters which I enjoyed. Everything coming up on Netflix for me right now is sci-fi or paranormal or grizzled detectives with Family Issues. I hate Family Issues, man. I need something fun. Has anyone seen Wine Country yet?
