“Hot Summer Nights” Trailer

Is it crazy that we only want to see this film because of Timothée Chalamet? I know I’m not the only one that is obsessed with him especially after “Call Me By Your Name.” But I can say that we were fans of his ever since “Homeland.” So there.

A Collection Part 50

On average, the process of putting together one of these posts takes about three months. To find images, I have about 10 Tumblrs that I circulate through. Each post roughly has about 50 images, but today, this one has less. I’m posting this one now though because I’m close to 50 and there won’t be any other Tumblrs that I’ll be viewing within the next couple of months. It has also been three months since I posted A Collection Part 49. I’m telling you all of this because that is the only structure I have when it comes to making these. There are no themes. I don’t spend any time re-arranging them in a certain order. The differences in size of images would normally bother me anywhere else, but not here. There are no patterns for colors. I can’t explain to you why I selected this image over that one and I don’t want to. I look at these photos so quickly and I save them in an instant the same way a normal human being would fill out one of those personality tests that you’re not supposed to think too much about it. That’s it! Since the migration, every other post before this has been skewed to the left. Starting now and with post #50, we’re going to center it. It just looks better!

NYC vs. SF Comics

Even though I’ve lived in San Francisco for eight months now and the Bay Area for nearly five years, it still feels unnatural calling this place home. New York City and San Francisco are both dynamic cities with its own flavor, culture and people. I haven’t spent that much time in New York at all, but these comics make me laugh mostly because it’s a reminder of how ridiculous SF can be sometimes. Check out the rest here and my favorites below!

No One Is Happy About How The Bachelor Ended

It’s been a couple of weeks since the finale aired, but seeing Arie and Lauren is sort of infuriating especially in more television appearances. Remember when we all hated Juan Pablo? Turns out that we only needed just a few years for someone to take over as being the worst bachelor ever. The producers of this show stretched out the finale into two nights as in, four hours of my time, so to spare you that, let me just quickly recap what happened.

Arie chose Becca as the one he wanted to marry. A few weeks later, he had second thoughts and decided he wanted to be with Lauren before the finale of the season aired. Arie decided to break up with Becca while the cameras are rolling completely blindsiding her and then runs back to Lauren. Becca is now the next Bachelorette which is sort of a win for her and Arie and Lauren are engaged. On the After the Final Rose finale special, Arie proposes to Lauren and again in front of the cameras. Does the guy know how to do anything privately?

After all is said and done, Arie and Lauren appeared on Jimmy Kimmel and he makes fun of them straight to their face throughout the interview because they are terrible and deserve it.

Netflix Binge: Ugly Delicious

I started a new Netflix series this week called Ugly Delicious. Fair warning: watching this will make you extremely hungry so don’t watch while starving. I had gotten a heads up about this new series sometime last month and was looking forward to its debut. Chef David Chang highlights a different cuisine in each episode and goes in depth with guests and friends on where to find the best of the best and also the origin of how this specific cuisine came to be. The first episode highlighted pizza and I was all OVER that. Currently, as I’m typing we’re watching Tacos. I believe there’s going to be a future episode though that’s not going to make me too happy because of some of the reviews I’ve seen, but I guess more on that later when I get there.

Readers, have you started this series yet? Do you know which episode I’m talking about?

Emily Ratajkowski is Married!

 

💍ny💍

A post shared by Emily Ratajkowski (@emrata) on

It’s official! Our favorite cool girl Emily Ratajkowski is officially married! If you’re wondering if this felt like it came from out of nowhere, it’s because it kind of did. In true Emily fashion and not giving af, Emily married her boyfriend of just a few weeks, actor Sebastian Bear-McClard. The two got married today at New York’s City Hall and the bride didn’t even wear white! She wore a chic yellow suit with a wide brimmed hat.

She’s off the market, everyone. We love everything about how these two got married even despite the very minimal details we have.

Thoroughbreds

Two upper-class teenage girls in suburban Connecticut rekindle their unlikely friendship after years of growing apart. Together, they hatch a plan to solve both of their problems-no matter what the cost.

I’m a fan of anything that Olivia Cooke (Me, Earl and the Dying Girl) is in and a new fan of Anya Taylor-Joy who got her big break from Split. This movie is a little bit of a thriller, which is why it’s interesting to me, but it also makes me feel sad knowing Anton Yelchin has passed and that this is one of his last films.
