Drunk Movie Monday – Teen Beach Movie

Okay, true facts: I actually watched this movie sober, and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a fun, self-aware commentary on the wacky hi-jinks of 50s-nostalgia teen movies (some of which I have drunkenly recommended before), and it is, frankly, delightful. But I am absolutely sure that watching it drunk would make it EVEN BETTER. Though, really,… Continue reading Drunk Movie Monday – Teen Beach Movie

Arabian Nights and Days by Naguib Mahfouz

This whole reading-books-getting-turned-into-movies thing has really given me an appreciation for all of the actually GOOD books that land in my lap. It's time, I think, for a little reading positivity, so let's talk about a book that I loved: Arabian Nights and Days, by nobel prize-winning author Naguib Mahfouz.  I know you're not suppose to… Continue reading Arabian Nights and Days by Naguib Mahfouz

Drunk Movie Monday – Hobbit 3: the Battle of the Five Armies

Before I damage my nerd cred, I feel like I have to say straight-up that the Lord of the Rings trilogy is one of my favorite movies, hands down. In fact I even like the movies better than the books, which is probably because I rather notoriously don't like doorstopper fantasy. But the Hobbit movies?… Continue reading Drunk Movie Monday – Hobbit 3: the Battle of the Five Armies

Drunk Movie Monday – They Came Together

Yeah, well, this is that for rom coms. The film: They Came Together (2014) The premise: It's a meta rom com that's only about half… Continue reading Drunk Movie Monday – They Came Together

YouTube Round-Up

It's been a while since I've shamelessly fawned over things I'm loving on YouTube. In fact, I haven't written a post about anything I'm watching (aside from drunk movie mondays, of course) since How to Train Your Dragon 2, and my last online video round-up was in 2013. Yikes. Well, let's talk about some things… Continue reading YouTube Round-Up

Drunk Movie Monday – Camp Takota

Can people who got famous because of their own over-the-top personalities be good actors? Maybe, but none of them are in this film. Which is not to say this isn't a thoroughly entertaining movie. Just that if you're expecting fictional characters...you won't find them here. Let's talk about Camp Takota. The film: Camp Takota (2014) The… Continue reading Drunk Movie Monday – Camp Takota

Where the Mountain Meets the Moon

This little book came to me almost entirely by accident. I found it in a used book store, which I was only perusing because a friend of mine was late for our dinner plans. By all rights I should never have come across this little beauty, but when I saw this gorgeously designed cover peering… Continue reading Where the Mountain Meets the Moon
