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

Douglas Adams Appreciation Post

Despite having named my blog after a quote from him, it has suddenly occurred to me that I never talk about Douglas Adams on here. This is a horrid shame, because Douglas Adams' writing is a foundational element of my personality. After reading The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, my mother once said to me that… Continue reading Douglas Adams Appreciation Post

Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries

It's been a while since I've written an obsessively enthusiastic recommendation of a TV show (I believe the last one was Hannibal, which is currently in its second season and continues to be amazing), and I think it's high time I revisited the genre.

Less frequently… Continue reading Orange is the New Black and Deviating from the Norm

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

Let’s Talk About Hannibal; or, Thank You for the Nightmares

I don't much care for horror films. Aside from Cabin in the Woods, which is less a horror film than it is an exciting meta action-adventure that just happens to feature a lot of blood, they just aren't very interesting to me. The way I see it, a good horror movie is suppose to scare you, and… Continue reading Let’s Talk About Hannibal; or, Thank You for the Nightmares
