vamp love


I'd let them bite me.


I have Twilight fever. Yes, I know the books are ridiculous. Yes, I know there is no literary value in Stephanie Meyer’s writing. Yes, I know Robert Pattinson doesn’t bathe, and that if I ever actually met a guy like Edward I would run, not walk, away because he’s a creeper. (Seriously, he’s possesive and obsessive and moodier than a 12 year old girl. No thanks.)

BUT, I can’t help it. So, I will fly my freak flag high and dive right in with my random thoughts.

1. “Kstew” and “Rpatz” (as A calls them) are not necessarily attractive individuals, but, with their powers combined they are aesthetically complementary of one another. They just go together. See above.

2. Kristen Stewart is pretentious, snotty, stoner who can’t act and pretends like she doesn’t want to be famous (I call bull-shit).  She is also one lucky bee-otch. Good for her.

3. Luckier still is Stephanie Meyer. She wrote one good story, sloshed her way through three more books and her work was miraculously adopted by teenagers, moms, hollywood, and rock stars…

4. Which brings me to my next point. Since when did musicians decide that Twilight is the coolest thing ever? The New Moon soundtrack features completely hipster-approved bands such as Muse, the Killers, Grizzly Bear, Thom Yorke, and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (just to name a few). Was there a convention? Did they all get together for coffee (read: booze) and lay out a plan that used their talents to turn something mediocre into something really cool?

Whatever, I’m still going to be at the movie theater on November 20.


high flyer


The "visionary" herself. For being stuck in a plane so much, (and having practically NO eyebrows) this photo is kind of glamourous.

So, when I went to see The Time Traveler’s Wife last weekend, they showed a trailer for Amelia, Hillary Swank’s latest endeavor based on the life of American Icon, Amelia Earhart (that’s E-A-R-H-A-R-T, you’ll want to remember how to spell it later).

I think the two-time Oscar winner (Boys Don’t Cry, Million Dollar Baby) is going for number three. The trailer manages to be beautiful and inspiring in under two minutes. I’m sold.

in real life

In today’s world, we know everything about celebrities. Right or wrong, we’re privy to their personal lives– know where they live, vacation, know their children’s names… which is really creepy when you think about it. 

But that’s not my point. My point is that I know so much about certain celebrities (or think I do) that I feel like we could be really good friends in real life. I will give examples.


Keira Knightley: She’s only a couple of years older than me, and I think she’s very likable. I just know I’m destined to have a British friend who says things like “bollocks” and “bloody hell”. I appreciate her film choices– all those period pieces, hello history major! Also, I would love to raid her closet… even though I’m pretty sure nothing would fit. 


Liv Tyler: How cute is she?! Liv Tyler has the cool factor– duh, her dad is a rock star! Anyway, she just seems sweet, like she would make me feel better if I had a bad day… and I bet she can party like nobody’s business.


Reese Witherspoon: she has the regional thing going. I think we could connect on our love for the south– the food, the humidity, the people, and that drawl! Waiter, two mint juleps… we have have miles of church gossip to get through. 


wild thing

Now that the Harry Potter 6 craziness is done (ohmygoditwasamazing) I have begun to look forward to movies coming out in the fall. In particular, I’m dying to see Where the Wild Things Are


Don’t you love the music in the trailer? (The Arcade Fire’s “Wake Up”)

The thing I keep thinking is that it looks so real. If Max were to actually go “where the wild things are”, that’s exactly what it would look like. Dark, dirty, kind of scary, and wonderful.

Speaking of Max, which is the kid’s actual name by the way, doesn’t he just break your heart? Here he is with the director, Spike Jonze, getting ready to conquer the world. Comes to theaters on October 16, get excited.


beyond the pale

I can’t say enough nice things about Anne Hathaway. I’m a huge fan. She is definitely my pick to play me in the movie about my life (sure to start production, uh, never). 

Anyway, she’s going to be in Tim Burton’s version of Alice in Wonderland as the White Queen. Pictures below…


Here is Anne at the 2009 Screen Actors Guild Awards, looking gorgeous. Love the make up-- it's so fresh!


And here she is in a production photo as the White Queen. Stunning, no?

I’m a doctor, not a…

Does anybody else watch Bones? No, not Star Trek Bones, Forensic Anthropology Bones. I’m obsessed.


Emily Deschanel is, in a word, exquisite.


Maybe it’s Emily Deschanel that I like so much. I identify with her character– intelligent, socially awkward, surrounded by good friends. It’s strange, but I have a hard time picturing her as anything else. She IS Bones to me. 

Other things I like: chemistry between her and David Boreanaz, the writing, the fact that me and Dad can watch it together, and the fact that he (my father) has seen every episode. Every. Single. One.
