The Weekend: 5 Things

Processed with VSCOcam with t1 preset

My boss had a moving rummage over the past weekend and having been an avid collector of vintage trinkets and lots of dinnerware, I inherited a set! I don’t cook very much anymore, but someday I will start it up again and when that happens, I’ll at least have this very pretty set for my guests.

I somehow convinced him that he was going to love this movie. Bachelorette is one of my favorites and is totally underrated. I think I discovered it last year with my girlfriends last summer and while I loved it, he did not.

My coworkers and I got a DJ set by Questlove on Saturday night at the Mezzanine and it was pretty rad. There were some on/off moments during his set, but it’s Questlove so can you really hate on anything he does? Of course not. I wanted to be best friends with him obvi.

cards

I have a slight obsession with greeting cards. We stopped by The Museum of Craft and Design in the Dogpatch Sunday morning, but didn’t really make it into the actual museum part of it – just the gift shop. We were entertained for a solid 15-20 minutes. These cute little greeting cards caught my eye, but unfortunately, I didn’t make any purchases.

welcome stranger

I can’t know this for sure, but I’m guessing the best part about being a boy is probably being able to wear all of these amazing pieces. As much as I love women’s fashion, there is a fascination that I have for menswear as well. I was introduced to Welcome Stranger on Sunday in Lower Haight and wish I could’ve picked out a few for myself. Well, in some ways I got to do that, but I just got to pick them out for someone else. :)

Wish I Was Here

It feels like just yesterday we were learning about the news that Zach Braff was making a new film and funding it through Kickstarter. Well, we’re happy to announce that the movie was finally made and will be released in theaters this coming July. “Wish I Was Here” is kind of like the unofficial/official sequel to Garden State. We’re not really sure what the film is about, but it has that same indie/mysterious vibe that Garden State once had. Literally, the trailer gives nothing away.

Begin Again

It’s kind of almost like The Voice sponsored a movie. How they got a pretty good lineup of actors/actresses is confusing to me. Would you guys watch this film?

The latest film from writer-director John Carney (ONCE), BEGIN AGAIN is a soul-stirring comedy about what happens when lost souls meet and make beautiful music together. Gretta (Keira Knightley) and her long-time boyfriend Dave (Adam Levine) are college sweethearts and songwriting partners who decamp for New York when he lands a deal with a major label. But the trappings of his new-found fame soon tempt Dave to stray, and a reeling, lovelorn Gretta is left on her own. Her world takes a turn for the better when Dan (Mark Ruffalo), a disgraced record-label exec, stumbles upon her performing on an East Village stage and is immediately captivated by her raw talent. From this chance encounter emerges an enchanting portrait of a mutually transformative collaboration, set to the soundtrack of a summer in New York City.

The Maze Runner

Though I’ve never read the book, I’ve been hearing about this film for months and I’m really excited for it because Kaya Scodelario and Dylan O’Brien are in it.

Annie Trailer

At the end of the work day, it takes watching a trailer like this to warm up your heart a little bit. I would probably see this movie, but I probably wouldn’t want to pay to see it in theaters. I find parts of this cast refreshing, but then a part of me is just like, “Cameron Diaz, what are you even doing in here?”

Song of the Day

MAX – Mug Shot

So I have this thing for Nickelodeon/Disney stars and I’m sure most of the people in my life would think this is embarrassing, but I’m not ashamed in the slightest. Max Schneider was on this Nickelodeon show that I watched every now and then called How to Rock back in 2012, but since the show was taken off the air, I followed some of his YouTube covers and enjoyed him enough to want to keep some tabs. This song featured above is actually in the trailer for the new Veronica Mars movie so it gets some street cred, doesn’t it?

A Collection Part 39

Would you believe that it has already been 4 months since our last “A Collection Part” post? I can already hear Veronica’s voice in the back of my head saying, “I can.” Every time I speak to the girl, she’s always asking for another one. Little does she know, constructing these take forever! Good news though, I’ve already started building Part 40 so hopefully we won’t have to wait as long for the next one, but if she had it her way, it would be every week.

Making this post this time around was quite refreshing to me. Veronica once asked me how I choose the pictures that I do for this post and I don’t know if I was ever able to give a great answer. I probably just said that I chose the pictures I liked, but I’d like to elaborate on that a little bit. I used to do a bit of photography back in high school and in the early days of college, I brought my camera with me everywhere I went. I love that these photos are being taken in ways that I never thought of before. They are various shots that spark something in me, but I have no idea what it is and because I can’t explain it or put it into words of some sort, I love it. Maybe that’s not a better explanation than before, but it makes sense to me!

Enjoy!

Emma Watson for Wonderland Magazine

To promote her latest film, “Noah,” Emma Watson is getting glammed up for the cover of Wonderland Magazine in not just one, but two covers.

I love the two opposite looks, but my favorite is definitely the first.

Adult World

If I’m not mistaken, I think this is the film where Emma Roberts and Evan Peters first met on the set, but I could be wrong. After watching Emma portray this darker character on American Horror Story, it’s a little bit difficult to believe her as the flighty manic pixie dream girl in Adult World. I’m not really sure if it’s convincing or even interesting watching a struggling poet work in an adult bookstore. I suppose I just had higher expectations for the film especially when I first heard about it, but I don’t feel the same way anymore.
