The TV Guide
My Wednesday was a fairly quiet one for me. After the run of bizzy days I’ve enjoyed lately, I knew that I was gonna wanna take it real easy yesterday. I only ventured out after dark once the sun went down to avoid melting in the sweltering heat so that I could take care of a few errands. I made my way out to The Grove to see if I could find a wedding outfit for my friend’s Loy and Ryan’s upcoming nuptials and then I paid a visit to Barnes & Noble to peruse the Tokyo guidebooks. I am happy to reveal that I was successful in finding most of my wedding outfit at Top Man (my fave new clothing store) but I wasn’t quite successful in finding a suitable guidebook. More »
As we all know, adaptations are very tricky things, and they don’t always (or often) pan out. Whenever someone attempts to translate a really good book into a really good play, or film, or television show there’s always this great fear that it just won’t work. But every once in a while something cool happens, which is why I’m gonna keep hope alive for this new Les Misérables-based television show that’s coming to Fox. Sigh. Click inside for more!

"I think [the memoir will be titled] Girl with the Most Cake"
Courtney Love is featured in a new interview with Vanity Fair magazine wherein she explains that a personal memoir will be out by the holidays. In her book, I assume, she will finally reveal all the things about her life that fans have been clamoring to know. The VF interview also reveals that C. Love actually wants to get back into acting as well as showcases her love for Etsy and Pinterest. It’s all classic Courtney.

That-Ish-Cray Of The Day
So, I won’t get into details, but suffice it to say that there’s a certain member of my family who is obsessed with Aziz Ansari to no end, and has succeeded in infecting me with said obsession. I’ve seen the stand-up shows (including that episode of Bob’s Burgers I just watched where he voices some video game kid/god), and everything he’s in or on is a must-watch around here. Bottom line, Aziz is everything and I’m excited about everything he does. Which is why I was psyched to hear that he’s writing a book… LMAO. Cannot. Wait. Click inside for more!

The TV Guide
Because I did a bunch of traveling in the past week, I had a lot of time to catch up with a couple of things that I’ve been dying to read and watch and yesterday, as I made my way home from Detroit to LA, I was finally able to get all caught up. On August 1, the anniversary of MTV, I started reading the book VJ: The Unplugged Adventures of MTV’s First Wave and I immediately fell in LOVE with the stories that the 5 original VJs shared. Over the last week, I also managed to watch all 13 episodes of the newest Netflix original series Orange is the new Black. I cannot even full express how much I love this show. Altho I’m not a fan of cross country flying, I managed to use my time wisely and in a very entertaining way. More »
No Such Thing As 'Too Soon' In Hollywood
You all know I love a good movie, and I especially love a good movie based on a true story. However, I was a little taken aback to see that Hollywood had already jumped on the recent Boston marathon bombing tragedy and started looking into movie options. You’d think it might be a little too soon for this, but apparently not. The screenwriters from the 2010 Oscar-winning movie The Fighter are on board and they’ve bought the rights to an upcoming book about the tragic event called Boston Strong. Click inside to learn more.
