I’ve spent most of the last week stunned and in depression after the election. I didn’t really watch many movies. Moving on, and sharing some of my distractions!
Who else is watching The Crown on Netflix? My jaw DROPPED when Matt Smith playing Price Phillip sleeps nude and graces us with more than one look at his
“bum” in just the first two episodes. Yowza. Great interview with Matt in Entertainment Weekly: “Shit gets interesting.” So cool that he’s getting such a plum role and something completely different.
How big fans of Matt Smith are we in this house? We went to the 50th Doctor Who convention in London and my youngest son ran up and just hugged him before our photo op. Look at that grin on my son Ben’s face.
Someone has done a Mashup of the Dangal trailer with The Powerpuff Girls and it’s just glorious, even shared by one of the young actresses in the film.
The battle isn’t over, it’s just begun. Grandpa fought in World War II and when he came home this country handed him an opportunity to make a great life for his family. I will not hand his granddaughter a country shaped by hateful and stupid men. Your tears last night woke me up, and I’ll never go to sleep on you again.
I’m voraciously reading on the internet most of the day. I’m starting a new feature today similar to the email newsletters I get, passing on to you what I find interesting and am reading. David Carr of the NYT (who I miss like an amputated limb) once wrote an article about the new curated email newsletters that pass on all the funky articles and links these journalists find. I subscribe to several that he recommended. These three newsletters are favorites:
How happy are we that Koffee With Karan is back?! I finally was able to sit down and watch the full episode, and it was a doozy. I didn’t think I’d love Alia and SRK together so much, but the best part may be Karan’s new addition from Ellen – having them act as each other, and act reading random things. SRK pretending he’s orgasming to a butter chicken recipe!! (I’ll never eat butter chicken the same again.) But the best thing about Koffee With Karan being back? New GIF’s from KoffeeWithKjo! Seriously, you must follow her on tumblr.
