“I want it to be wonderfully nostalgic. I want it to be to the ’80s what ‘American Graffiti’ was to the [early] ’60s. I want it to be looking back on a really cool time and enjoying yourself and I want it to be glamorous and colorful and bubblegum and a feast for the senses. That’s my plan.”
– Diablo Cody talks about her upcoming film adaptation of the Sweet Valley High teen book series. I am basically losing my mind over this. I still read SVH on the beach during the summer and am still pissed about that ’90s TV series hack job. Bring on the lariat necklaces! The blue-green eyes the color of the Pacific! The perfect size 6 figures! Bring me the Wakefield twins as they were meant to be! [Indiewire]
Believe it or not, ladies, not all gay guys are falling all over themselves for Lady Gaga. In this edition of the hilarious new web series “It Gets Better-ish,” Brent and Eliot are gifted tickets to a Lady Gaga show, but it falls on the same day as their planned trip to see Enya.

Attention sappy movie buffs! Check out the newly released trailer for “The Vow.” The romantic drama centers on Paige (Rachel McAdams), who loses five years of her memory following a terrible car crash. In her amnesiac state, she has no recollection of her present marriage to Leo (Channing Tatum), and believes she’s still engaged to ex-fiance Jeremy (Scott Speedman) from years before. And so the classic formula begins: boy loses girls heart via traumatic means … boy must win her heart all over again! Rachel McAdams, swoon. Channing Tatum, pure sex. “The Vow” … eh. It looks as though it’ll have the quality of “Dear John” mingled with a dash of the plot from “50 First Dates.” We’ll probably end up seeing it because we love Rachel, and let’s face it, having her play the lead in a Nicholas Sparks-written romance reminds us of “The Notebook”‘s Allie and Noah all over again!
