Sophia ISN’T the First and that‘s a shame.

Hey Disney,

What’s up with you overriding the creators of your new kids’ series “Sophia the First” and saying that Princess Sophia isn’t Latina?  Would it have hurt anyone for Continue reading

Oh The Hair!

Dear Ben Whishaw,

I saw SKYFALL and I am now madly in like with you.  I want to snuggle with you and run my fingers through all that hair.  I promise I’m not creepy.  And I think your accent is super cute too.

xoxo,

Twilight – what is this feeling?

Ugh, I have this awful feeling in my belly.  It started after I saw Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 yesterday.  I’m having uncontrollable urges to say “awww” and smiling.  Oh My Gravy!  I think I’m feeling happiness.  I think I’m happy that the twitchy chick and the sparkly boy got to be together.  I’m happy the movie had a happy ending.  I’m even happy that wolfie got his baby… NO.  Scratch that.  I am not happy for that creepy “imprinted” falling in love with a newborn baby nonsense!  C’mon even Stephanie Meyer had to reread that and think, “that’s some weird stuff.”

Did you see Twilight?  Were you happy with the end?  Were you just happy that the whole thing ended?  Let me know.

Food Network is the MySpace of Cable TV.

Oh Food Network!  What happened to you?  I once loved you so.  You were the center of my pop culture universe.  You provided me with buzzy food porn, a zen-like space to absorb beautiful things (without effort) and a constant stream of ideas.  But something has gone terribly wrong.  How did you go so far off track?  Let me count the ways…

1. You stopped trying to innovate – Food Network was a revolutionary idea for the home cook.  It taught me terminology, technique, methodology Continue reading

Disney Musicals + Star Wars =

Disney’s purchase of LucasFilm, combined with Disney’s musical film background opens the door for the only Star Wars sequel I truly want to see… The Star Wars Holiday Special part II

Remember the cheesy goodness…

It’s October 19th in My Heart.

NBC, bring back my Community… or else (and by “or else” I mean pretty, pretty please with sugar and puppies and rainbows on top).  At least the cast can have fun with the delay.

I am a Princess

I like this video.  Maybe I would love it if I didn’t feel like it was one big shill for Disney products.  Because, my house is chock full of Princess… and not in a good way.

I love that Big Yellow Bird!

Thank you Saturday Night Live.  Thank you for giving Big Bird a forum to express himself.  Thank you for keeping it classy with my favorite fictional bird.  And thank you for a joke I can totally share with my kidlets.  PS – a big NO THANK YOU to SNL for following up Big Bird with a vagina joke.  Boo!

Solange… I’m conflicted.

Solange Knowles has a huge shadow to step out from behind.  It can’t be easy to be Beyonce’s baby sister.  Although she’s had a few reboots in her career, I always find myself slightly intrigued to see what she’ll do next.  Her most recent reboot is Brooklyn Hipster/World Citizen chic.  And while I’m not big fan of her recent interviews where she seems to be trying to be edgy and combative about her life choices (very Rihanna of you); I really am enjoying this song.  It reminds me of the Soul II Soul, British R&B movement of the early 90′s.  Have a listen and decide for yourself.
