The Magic School Bus Rides Again

We’re dipping back into a little bit of nostalgia this evening! I’m in love with Netflix bringing back The Magic School Bus. When I was a kid, this was one of my favorite programs and I hope it’s one that I can share with my own kids someday. How much more fun would school have been if we had all had a Ms. Frizzle?

A Collection Part 48

48 posts and counting! I’m convinced that writer’s block is a thing that happens to everyone. I can still remember being in college and becoming upset at myself when I knew I had waited until the last minute to complete a paper. Typical. Writing always came easily when it wasn’t out of desperation and when it wasn’t at a time that I needed it the most. These “A Collection” posts are my favorite because they don’t ever require writing, but I like to write a little piece to go along with it anyways. It’s nice to just sift through a bunch of images and decide on the spot if I want to include them or not. I will usually know within a second and if I’m thinking about one for too long, that might also mean something too. I like to think that all of the images represent the mood that I’m in or a period in my life. I never actually write out the exact feeling at that moment and we’re completely okay with that. If you read into these a bit though, you can always sense a type of pattern.

Enjoy!

To The Bone

Films about eating disorders will always make me a little bit uncomfortable. But at the end of the day, they are so important. It’s important for people to hear the stories, to know what it’s like, and what it feels like. I’ve been interested in these types of films lately because Lily Collins and Troian Bellisario are both staring in them and have both had eating disorders themselves so I know that the stories that they are portraying have a lot to do with their own experiences. I’m looking forward to seeing both their takes on it.

Netflix’s “Gypsy”

Anyone else feel like Netflix is completely dominating all of their TV time lately? With 13 Reasons Why, Masters of None, Terrace House, it’s hard for me to pull away! I’m loving the variety that they have in their series and the high quality production value of their series. Gypsy is very intriguing to me, but I also enjoy Naomi Watts as an actress.

Dear White People

There has been a little bit of controversy surrounding this show, but it honestly does. not. matter. I’m really excited to be checking this out. It is sometimes crazy to me to think about the evolution of Netflix and how they were just a DVD mailing service to streaming and now their own programming. Other series on my list include Terrace House and 13 Reasons Why. What about all of you? Any recommendations?

Also! Big ups to Allen Stone who is having his song featured in this trailer! YES!

Casting JonBenet

JonBenet Ramsey and I were the same age so when the story broke out about her death, I was really too young to process it. To this day, even though there was sort of closure, there wasn’t really. People are still making documentaries about it and sharing their theories so naturally, this is one of those cases that I also never let go. I’m still very fascinated by all of it and often wonder what JonBenet’s life would have been like today had this not happened to her and why it seems like everyone close to her involved was let off the hook. This trailer was incredibly haunting to me, but still captivating enough that I might log into my Netflix account (which I do less than a handful of times a year) to watch this when it premiers on April 28th.

Golden Globe Awards 2017

Viola Davis in Michael Kors Collection

I spent a great deal of time today glued to my TV. Those hours of the red carpet and the actual award show aren’t hours that I can get back. My two takeaways? Well, I didn’t watch enough good movies in the last year and everyone that tried to pull off a long-sleeved dress this year on the red carpet failed. I did have a couple of favorite looks though and they came from those that surprised me! I always like doing this post the night of the award show so that people can have something to scroll through when morning comes around so with that here are my favorite looks as well as those that missed the mark.

I’m actually tired of this trend with dresses being one shouldered and have been for awhile, however, I love this color on Viola and she looks stunning. I also like that she decided to simplify both her and makeup so that the dress could just do its thing. The head-scratching moment of the night for this dress was when Ryan Seacrest asked her what color her dress was while everyone at home was like “um, can’t you tell what color this is?”

Sarah Jessica Parker wearing Vera Wang

Very rarely am I ever impressed by anything SJP wears. She looks like a marshmallow in this gown and I’m not happy with the way she styled her hair. The only way this look could redeem itself is if it were sleeveless and her hair were let down.

What We’re Watching:

Happy Thanksgiving weekend everyone! I hope everyone is thoroughly stuffed and completely well-rested! I just spent the last few days in southern California with my relatives and decided to come home right before the weekend because these days I’m always craving more alone time at my home especially having been on the road on/off for the last two months.

As I type, I’m on episode two of the revival. Two things to note, 1) I rarely watch Netflix and by rarely I mean like 2-3 times a year. 2) I didn’t even watch the last 3 seasons or so of Gilmore Girls so I have no idea where they even left off! However, I get fomo so I didn’t want to be one of those people that wasn’t watching the revival, plus Kristie and I talked about it today before I left for my flight so we started episode 1 together.

Who else is watching?! We’ve always loved the mother-daughter pair and of course, I want to see who she ends up with!

Justin Timberlake and the Tennessee Kids Trailer

I’m not someone that pays money for a lot of big production shows. I’ve never had an interest in seeing Beyonce or Kanye live, but I did see Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande within the last couple of years. And when I was much younger, Britney Spears like twice!

After watching this trailer though, I’m a little interested in seeing this which features Justin Timberlake on his 20/20 Experience World tour. The main footage comes from his Vegas show, but will highlight from 134 shows and two years of being on the road for this tour. I’ve always had a soft spot for Timberlake anyways so I’m sure I’ll really enjoy this.

Another Post About The Stranger Things Cast

I’m actually obsessed with this cast and can’t get enough of all of their appearances. Meanwhile, I’m still stuck on getting to Episode 4… someday, we’ll get there.

Stranger Things Cast Visit Jimmy Fallon

First the cast talks about Millie and Finn’s kiss on Stranger Things. Man… I haven’t even gotten this far yet.

Then the cast plays a game of “Stranger Strings” where they read off facts one-by-one and spray the person they think wrote it. During this, we learn that Millie can rap and she’s a BO$$.

I would adopt that Gaten kid. He is too much.

Stranger Things Kids Sing Theme Song

I recently got into watching Stranger Things – still sitting pretty at Episode 4, but I’m obsessed with the kids on this show. Here are a couple of them trying to sing the theme song to the series. I wish I could adopt Dustin (left) he’s easily the best character on the show.

Fuller House (trailer)

I have to admit, I’m a little bit nervous about Fuller House, but this was my favorite sitcom growing up (90’s kid here!) so there was no way that I wouldn’t at least catch the first few episodes. I was also pretty ecstatic when I heard that Netflix had picked it up and made it into an actual thing. The trailer doesn’t seem too promising, but I love that DJ is back in the forefront. Gibbler is completely awkward, but that’s to be expected and – why is Stephanie Tanner so tall?!

Mandi and I won’t be able to watch it together the day it premieres, but we are planning to get together shortly after to stream it from one of our laptops and watching it in front of Alamo Square because that just seems like the right thing to do. She also just conveniently lives right. there.

Fuller House

Because we absolutely needed to talk about the revival of “Full House!” Earlier this week, the news broke out that Netflix would be bringing Full House back to life and the plot line got us even more excited.

According to E! the new series will follow older sister, D.J. Tanner-Fuller (wow, that pun!), played by Candace Cameron-Bure, who is “a pregnant veterinarian – recently widowed – and living in San Francisco.” Jodie Sweetin, who played middle sister Stephanie Tanner, and Andrea Barber, D.J.’s BFF-neighbor Kimmy Gibbler will also star in the series. It’s also heard that John Stamos will co-star and produce.

Now, of course we would love it if Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen would reprise their role as Michelle Tanner, but it looks like Lori Loughlin isn’t holding her breath and threw a little shade saying she doubts that they even care about the revival. However, after a post I saw yesterday from Ohnotheydidnt, it looks like it’s not completely off the table for the twins.

Mary-Kate said, “We just found out about it today. I guess we’re going to talk to the creators and see what’s happening.”

Meanwhile Ashley said she was surprised that her old co-stars hadn’t mentioned anything to her. “I ran into Bob [Saget] the other day and we didn’t even talk about it. I’m shocked I haven’t heard from John [Stamos].”

As to whether they’ll participate, Ashley said, “I’m going to call [Saget] and get his perspective.”

Omg. It’s really happening! Now #whereiscomet

Also, was D.J.’s husband Steve?! Did Steve die? I have so many questions.
