State of Mind During State of Affairs

Katherine Heigl’s new show premiered last night. It was overall hard to believe and confusing. This is my stream of consciousness. It opens with exlusive footage from Call of Duty Advanced Warfare. “Good doesn’t have to come. I do.” — on her slutty-ness. OK, lady. Her name is Charleston? And her nickname is Charlie? Like, […]

Amy Poehler tells it like it is—and how it should be

My biggest problem with celebrity memoirs is that they are self-serving, full of google-able facts and celebrity shout outs. I only care about one of those things—I love when celebs call out other celebs. It’s great. And, it makes me feel like I’m a part of their inner friends circle. Yes, Amy Poehler has the […]

Anyone familiar with Houston is either shaking their head, disappointed with my avoidance of the hundreds of amazing […]

Go get Gone Girl

In twenty years (honestly, I predict sooner), high school seniors will be reading “Gone Girl” by Gillian Flynn. They’ll buy it with their Calc book and Chem 2 goggles and annotate and highlight it. They’ll write papers on the disillusionment of marriage and how society affects our perception of gender roles. They’ll SparkNotes it—yes it’s a verb—and […]

These people look scared, but here’s what they’re thinking

Oh Canada, we stand on guard for thee haunted house’s secret camera. Apparently, there’s a beyond brilliant haunted house in America’s top hat called The Nightmare’s Fear Factory that takes a shot at the visitors—wait probably poor word choice, but you get it—at the scariest point of the house. The result is hilarious—but funnier when […]
