Too many guys think I’m a concept, or I complete them, or I’m gonna make them alive. But I’m just a fucked-up girl who’s lookin’ for my own piece of mind; don’t assign me yours.
Michel Gondry’s riveting 2004 film “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” has a special place in my heart. It manages to be all at once uplifting, darkly hilarious, and depressing in its aching realism. Jim Carrey (as Joel Barish) is like you’ve never seen him before, a rare, thought-provoking talent who feels, really feels, the deeeeep misery of anyone who has ever fallen madly in love only to have their heart shattered. His girlfriend Clementine, portrayed so effectively by Kate Winslet, is neurotic and impulsive, but you’ll soon learn that there is so much beauty to be found in instability. The disjointed manner of the film sees Clementine through a rainbow of hair colors, ages, and personalities, each more unhinged than the last. First, find out how to channel her cavalier, colorful persona this Halloween, and then check out four other character-driven Halloween costumes. Keep reading »
Hot damn, Shonda Rhimes, it’s good to be you. Rhimes, the writer responsible for “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Private Practice,” has just made her third — yes, third — sale to a major network this year. “The Circle,” which was bought by ABC, is billed as an hour-long drama about “10 friends, adopted as children by a billionaire philanthropist, who begin to question their past when one of their own is murdered.” Earlier this year, Fox laid claim to “Wildwood,” a drama about an underage girl who weasels her way into a bartending gig on the Jersey Shore. (No matter the underage debauchery, we’re sure that it’ll be a classier update to MTV’s reality show!) And finally, the spectacular Kerry Washington will star in Rhimes’ D.C. drama “Scandal” on ABC. Congratulations, Ms. Rhimes! Now quit it, you’re making the rest of us look lazy. [Clutch Magazine] Keep reading »
Got plans Sunday night? Me neither. No, I’m not asking you out on a date. I am, however, suggesting you maybe watch the Style Network’s new reality/makeover show “Glam Fairy,” which premieres Sunday at 8 p.m. It looks like “Jerseylicious” meets “How Do I Look?” meets “Toddlers & Tiaras: The Beauty College Years” (if such a wonderful thing existed) which I think we can all agree equals guaranteed entertainment. Meet the Glam Fairies in the clip above and then check out a sneak peak and a clip from the episode here.
This post was sponsored by the Style Network’s “Glam Fairy,” premiering Oct. 23 at 8 p.m., but I really am planning on watching this for my own personal enjoyment.
Last night brought us the last show of the season for “Beavis and Butthead.” I mean, “Jersey Shore.” Eh, same thing. I am relieved we’re at the end of the season in Italy. It’s a good thing MTV decided season five will be the show’s last. Can I get a “Yeah, buddy!”?
