Stay Home = Disney Time!

So, back in December of 2019 — which, by my count, was about six thousand years ago — I set out a few Pop Culture themed challenges for myself to complete in this new decade. One of them was to watch all of the Walt Disney Animated Classics that had a theatrical release — so, […]

On Legends and Grief

I played basketball when I was in middle school. I’ve attended exactly one NBA game and one Harlem Globetrotters game. I have never participated in March Madness bracket. I don’t even know if I could name more than a dozen pro-basketball teams (are there even more than a dozen? I assume so, but I’m not […]

And the nominees are…n’t?

WTF Oscars. I shouldn’t be surprised at this point. I know that. And I know there are plenty of people out there who like to espouse the “just don’t care” “the Oscars are pointless anyways” “it doesn’t matter” mantras. But here’s the issue: the Oscars do still matter. Maybe they shouldn’t, but that’s a different […]

A Very (Not So) Scary Television List

Okay, first – who am I kidding? We all know I tremble and cry and hide at scary stuff, so it’s very, very unlikely that anything on this list is actually very scary, but…well, the rhyme scheme fit with my “A Very Merry Television List” from 2015, so I decided to run with it! Much […]

The One Where I Pick My Favorites

Yesterday (September 22, 2019) was the 25th Anniversary of the day the pilot episode of Friends aired in the U.S. I wasn’t a huge Friends fan always. In fact, I only remember watching a handful of episodes live in the later seasons, and it made decent background noise when it was in syndication and I […]

Book & Movie Thoughts: Dumplin’

So, yes. I am the type of person who prefers to read a book before I see a movie. I still haven’t watched Netflix’s To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before because I haven’t gotten my hands on the book yet. But I did have a copy of Julie Murphy’s Dumplin’ on my shelf (untouched), […]

The Dangers of Too Much TV: Baking Edition

Who here has watched the Great British Baking Show (aka The Great British Bake Off)? Yeah, me too. It started in December of last year, when my normal obsession with anything Christmas-related kicks in, and I watched the holiday special version featuring Baby Spice. Then, of course, I watched every other episode I could find […]

Is *A Christmas Prince* satire? (And other holiday pop culture musings)

So, I’m going to admit something. I tend to avoid “Hallmark holiday” movies like the plague. I think they’re saccharine-sweet ridiculousness is just near-impossible to consume. (Yes, that’s coming from the same person who will watch pretty much any Disney Animated Classic on repeat.) However, I am also a person who weirdly loves The Prince and the Pauper stories. […]

My Second Disneybound: Dream Big, Princess

What can I say? I mentioned on my first attempt with Disneybounding that it was addictive, and it proved to be true! On October 11, which happened to be #InternationalDayOfTheGirl, Disney posted an announcement encouraging people to Disneybound at the Parks as a princess or other female Disney character as part of their #DreamBigPrincess campaign, […]

Parks & Rec: Starting Season 4

Guys. Leslie Knope is running for City Council. Which means she and Ben broke up. Which means I am simply TOO SAD TO BLOG ABOUT IT. I’m going to go hide out with Ron Swanson in his survivalist cabin until the pain goes away. K, bye.
