Find Me On:
Thank gosh someone is cleaning up the filth in those Call Me Maybe lyrics.
Maybe his middle name is Albert or Alfred or Algernon!
Duh. No contest (sorry Maggie Smith).
(The minivan seats) Se7en.
Gabe! The Graduate? Day of the Locust? You are in my wheelhouse now! My wheelhouse, incidentally, is early/midcentury fiction about the mythos of Southern California. Man oh man, there are so many things you should read or watch that are just as good, if not better! Is this anyone else’s thing? Let’s talk about it!
It’s always interesting to me how movies try to capitalize on books. The Easy Money trailer quotes James Ellroy referencing Steig Larsson (underlined!), but relegates the author of the actual book to a small-fonted acknowledgement later in the trailer.
I don’t know what to say about that, other than that I find it interesting.
Oh wow, I think this just made me realize that there will be no Gus Fring this season. No Gus!
Is there a character named Seymour? Can they possibly get one so she has an excuse to sing “Suddenly Seymour”?

And it probably has to be on a weeknight when you have playgroup at 8 am the next morning.
Aw, ptsmith, it seems like you’ve had a rough morning. But life is a-ok, I promise! Videogum is here for you. At least it’s not Anna Karenina that reminds you of your life.
June gloom is worth it for 76-degree temperatures, if only because of the bragging rights.
Guys, it’s the best podcast. Next time you’re in LA, you should go to it live! It’s so very good live, and the ticket price goes to 826 Writing Centers!
I know I was.
You know what? This is adorable. That whole village has NO idea. None! The thing that jumped into their heads when they saw it was “Hmm, nature is amazing”, not “Ugh, people are gross”. I love this whole village.
Lede burial overall. “Rory and Pete Campbell are dating!!!!!!!!!” should have been the title of this post, in big capital letters. Because, I mean, really.
The moment that I shot death stares at a gaggle of girls bouncing to Rihanna at 8:30 am on the 2 was the moment I realized I was an adult.
You live in Qarth?
What’s your favorite Vlad moment? Mine was when he defeated Vladislav II in hand-to-hand combat. So good.
Gosh, it’s one thing to defy vampire canon. It’s a whole other thing to defy logic.
They swallowed their pride and then choked on the rind. RIP.
