The Oscars, Etc

This is basically an excuse to post one of my favourite gifs of the past year, but it IS interesting that as much as people hate on Quentin Tarantino for being OMG too long and OMG needing an editor and OMG remember Jackie Brown and how brilliant that was but OMG let’s remember that wasn’t [...]

The Times! They Suck!

Hello! I still live! I think the Twitter thing on here has been mostly broken so I understand if many of you haven’t seen evidence otherwise but it is true, I haven’t disappeared off the face of the ridiculous little planet upon which we live. See, and I’ve said this before, but there was a [...]

Less is More

Probably the only review you’ll see which compares it, not to the show, which she hasn’t seen, but the 600p 19th century French novel. Hah! Wheat & Weeds – Less Miserable Than I Expected I still have no interest in seeing it. I think it’s just too long. It’s such an emotional commitment, signing up [...]

Belated Merry Christmas, As Well as Some Movie Reviews

Ahoy there from the inter-festa deep! I hope everyone had a merry Christmas? Ours was very good, indeed. And then as we were driving back from my ancestral pile (so to speak), I thought “Well, that’s Christmas over, I suppose.” It always seems a bit anti-climactic, don’t you think? It’s a good thing Peter has [...]

Absolutely the Funniest Item of the Day CCXCI

Why Doesn’t MTV Play Music Videos Anymore? In this installment of “Ask A Network Head,” Natalie asks the head of programming at MTV why they stopped playing music videos. And gets a fun answer! Yay! Multiple uses of bleeped out saucy language. But VERY funny.

A 40 Year History of Wedding Dresses

This is really interest. Mostly because it proves that the obligatory cupcake-and-chiffon dress wasn’t a Thing for (shall we say) post-virginal brides until, yup, the 1990s. I actually like dresses 2, 3, and 4 the best (the first one is lovely but if it’s done by a studio’s costume designer I don’t think it particularly [...]

Absolutely the Funniest Item of the Day CCLXXXV

This makes me so happy: St Andrews Girls: The Other Guys’ Charity Single I’m also in one of my “loving all of mankind” moods. It probably won’t last.

Contagion: The Faces and Door Handles Movie

Tonight’s film choice was Contagion. Three observations worth sharing: 1. The first thing to fold are the unions. When society breaks down, it’s because the nurses strike and the drivers strike and the pilots strike and so on. 2. The thing that keeps going, and both these things are explicitly shown, are nuns. A tender [...]
