Sexy Costumes in the Real World

I have this friend, Mel, who is one of the most absurdly talented people I know. Her talents extend in many directions, but one of the most impressive branches of her creativity is her costuming. Seriously, the girl is like a cosplay ninja--she does things with wearable electronics that border on witchcraft. Here is a… Continue reading Sexy Costumes in the Real World

Reading Challenges in 2014

Welcome to 2014! The thing about Drunk Movie Mondays is that they prevent me from posting about anything other than movies to watch while wasted at the beginning of the month/year. I maybe did not think that through as much as I should have, but we're stuck with it now, so we're just going to… Continue reading Reading Challenges in 2014

Why Everyone Should Watch Sailor Moon

SURPRISE BONUS POST DUE TO PACT DEFAULT! Don't you love the blog pact?* Greetings! Today is nostalgia day. It is nostalgia day because I have seen no less than four Sailor Moon-related movies/TV episodes in the last week, and I just have a lot of feelings about Sailor Moon, okay. It's great.

Female vs. Male Narratives in Cloud Atlas

Screw Wreck-It Ralph

But I recently finally got around to watching Wreck-It Ralph, which I was lead to believe was a fantastic movie, and I found it severely disappointing. Well. More than disappointing, actually.… Continue reading Screw Wreck-It Ralph

Women in Supernatural

This post was suppose to go out in two weeks, but a blog pact member defaulted this week, so you're getting it now. Enjoy! Before I bust into this post, two disclaimers are in order. First: I have only recently (read: about five months ago) begun watching Supernatural, and am now in the middle of… Continue reading Women in Supernatural

Why I’m Excited About Finding Dory

Believe it or not, good peeps of the Internet, I have been in Disneyland for the past couple days (as you probably know if you follow me on twitter). Auto-posting is a wondrous thing. Thus, I have been able to enjoy my vacation instead of stressing out over the last week of BEDA (I just… Continue reading Why I’m Excited About Finding Dory
