Can I just rave about Frozen?
I’m going to rave about Frozen.
However, I’ll be honest: I thought that Frozen looked like a total waste of my time when I saw the trailer. Oh, another Disney princess movie? Oh, a talking animal? Oh, lots of ice? Wow, Disney, let’s not get too wild, there’s children in the audience.
It was a pretty negative outlook, I’ll admit. And most of the time, I love Disney movies. I’ve adored them since I could walk. As I got older, I didn’t appreciate the whole ‘get-married-and-live-happily-ever-after’ concept and I never really understood the logic behind dancing with a stranger in the woods, but whatever. I also hated Cinderella’s hair, but that’s a story for a different post.
I thought Tangled was sublime, I thought Brave was groundbreaking and wonderful. So, for the life of me, I couldn’t tell you why I was so opposed to Frozen. My sister had already seen it three times. I was flabbergasted at the thought and just refused to spend the money, so my mother finally got fed up and took me to see it. [read more]
Dear Nick Adams,
Firstly, click on the gifs. They really do a great job of illustration.
Secondly, I’d like to congratulate you on the publication of your most recent book, American Boomerang. I’m aware that it isn’t your first book and that writing a one takes an enormous amount of patience and persistence, so hats off to you. You certainly have diligence.
That diligence certainly shone brightly during your Fox News interview about the ‘Wussification of Men’ when you stated that feminism has resulted in ‘angry women and feminine men’. And also, apparently, that men aren’t allowed to be men anymore. As an excerpt from your book reads, ‘…we see it coming from the feminists.’ [read more]
Not that long ago we posted an article about how Keenan Thompson didn’t think that WoC (Women of Color) were ready for SNL. This led to a skit in November that showed Kerry Washington illustrating the exhaustion of portraying Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, and Beyoncé . The skit included a humorous disclaimer stating that SNL’s lack of black women in the cast was ‘not an ideal situation’, which I appreciated because it was a candid response to the problem. I also highly recommend that you watch the video, which I accessed through Huffington Post because SNL had not made it available in my country. My country happens to be America so it sounds like they need to get it together.
Anyways, it seems that Keenan was wrong about black women being ready because SNL has just welcomed Sasheer Zamata. BAM.
I have spent the vast majority of my life being an overachieving perfectionist. Such a negative description, but sadly true. Part of it is genetic, but sometimes we encounter environmental factors that push us over the edge and straight down to Crazy Town, Nebraska. My push?
Mononucleosis. I never thought I would be defeated by a virus, but neither did Neighbor 406 in Zombieland. It’s supposed to be relatively harmless. Sleep for a week and you’ll be fine, right?

My darling Texan husband always complains that us Russians don’t like to drink during meals. He is baffled as to why we don’t guzzle iced water, carbonated drinks, and juice with our meals, like he is used to. [read more]
