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.

Nick Viall is the Next Bachelor

Screen Shot 2016-08-30 at 10.00.48 PM

WOW. We didn’t see that one coming! ABC is really stepping up their game to deliver on the surprises. Here’s why this is so unexpected:

  • This guy has been on TWO seasons of The Bachelorette. He was the runner-up on both of them and currently he’s on Bachelors in Paradise (a place for the rejects to find love on the spinoff series) I mean… hasn’t this guy had enough chances?
  • Uh… totally thought it was going to be Luke. What happened there?
  • Nick is currently seeing Jen on Bachelors in Paradise (I realize this isn’t in real time) but they seem pretty happy and moving in a positive direction.

It clearly didn’t work out with Jen and Nick, but geez – what a spoiler announcing that he’s the next Bachelor now when there’s still a season finale to watch next week! I was actually rooting for the Jen and Nick thing so I’m somewhat disappointed that that didn’t last. We’ll have to move on from that so here are the questions I want answered in watching Nick be The Bachelor next season.

  • WILL Nick finally find love? Dear god, please say yes.
  • Will we find out how Nick continues to make women on the show feel so desirable?
  • Will I ever stop looking at Nick like he’s the long lost brother of Spencer Pratt?

Serious questions here, y’all. Also, do you remember when we all hated him for two seasons? It’s like the producers of this franchise have been planning this all along by turning him into the good guy on Bachelors in Paradise and essentially setting him up for success to be the next Bachelor. Nice work!

Carpool Karaoke w/ Britney Spears

I know I can’t be the only one who was itching to see this? It was actually kind of enjoyable to watch. Britney used to be an icon for me growing up and even though she’s got her residency in Vegas currently and her family and things seem great, I can’t help but remember that period in her life when things were really NOT great and the fact that she’s still under a conservatorship.

I liked that we got to hear her sing a bit in this, but not sure why she was still lip synching through “Toxic.”

My Favorite Meme

Screen Shot 2016-08-17 at 9.41.58 PM

I know I’m like a month + behind on this, but these Arthur memes have been cracking me up lately. I think my coworker¬†had a whole discussion in a Slack channel recently about our favorite ones. Here are some that were posted on Huffington Post. I remember when I discovered this, I didn’t want the scrolling to end. I just wanted more! There’s also something really entertaining about reviving your favorite things from childhood into something more modern, which is exactly this.

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.

Michelle Obama for Carpool Karaoke

This is the absolute best. I’m so sad about Obama leaving the office :( These two were just so great.

The Hills Celebrates 10 Years

Okay so technically it was last week, but we’ve put off writing this post and now we’re catching up! [Hi Beth!] For those of you who don’t know, we watch a lot of television – specifically a lot of REALITY TV and we aren’t ashamed of it. The Hills came onto the air 10 years ago and it was iconic. Every girl wanted to be Lauren and if you didn’t, you were probably a Heidi, Whitney or Audrina which was okay too! I think it was about a year ago that I discovered MTV had the old seasons on OnDemand and I played a serious game of catch up watching episode after episode after episode. Naturally, they flew by because they were just 20-25 minutes. We learned a lot about love [no combat boots at the beach, please] and friendship in that every time we get in a fight with our friends, we shout out, “You know what you did!”

Also who could forget that classic lonely black tear shed on Lauren’s face.

But what’s the most important lesson of all?

You NEVER chose the boy over Paris. Lauren learned a tough lesson with that and god, the world never lets her forget it! Honestly this list could go on, but we want to keep this short. :)

So it was announced last week that there will actually be Hills special airing on MTV in August and we couldn’t be more thrilled. We’re going to see where Lauren is at (married and being successful of course) and learn more juicy details about what it was like to film for the show.

The producers actually already shared some pretty good details that I poured over last week regarding the series and it’s something I think you’ll all find interesting as well – if you’re a fan, that is! You can check it out here!

Blake Shelton and Jimmy Fallon Eat Sushi

Like, what? Blake Shelton – what do you eat? If I could, sushi would be our breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Mr. Robot Season 2

Mr. Robot is one of those shows that I’ve watched the first season entirely twice and still always feel like I’m missing very important points. It’s not a show that you can have just in the background and now I’m about to watch it again for the third time so that I can know what’s going on in the upcoming second season. This is one of the few shows that I’m actually excited for this coming summer!

Ariana Grande on Jimmy Fallon

Oh my gosh and this… below. Is it just me or does her performance of “Dangerous Woman” keep getting better and better?

ICYMI: Nick Jonas on SNL

Can you believe we stayed up for this ish last night?! Of course you can; it’s a surprise we didn’t set a calendar apt for it. I realized in watching this performance that Nick does this weird thing with his mouth when he sings… anyone notice that? Whatever the case, it’s what comes out of it that matters most, right?

“The Panic in Central Park”

We have to talk about this episode, okay? Since it aired last last Sunday, I’ve already watched it six times. I sort of lost interest in “Girls” a couple of seasons ago – pretty muuuuch since Charlie left. However, in the interest of making a promise to myself that I would finish things I started, I was slowly getting caught up. On Monday after this episode aired, Jennie texted me to ask if I had watched this yet. I told her “no,” but I started becoming curious. Why was this episode so important? Was she saying this because she knows about how much I love Charlie? On my Twitter feed, a girl I knew called this “the best episode in the entire series.”

The friend who was catching up on Girls with me made me promise we would start the last season together so instead I decided to read articles on the episode which led me to bypassing the rest of this series and watching this ENTIRE episode.

So why is “The Panic in Central Park” important?

First off, Charlie. If you don’t want to be spoiled, stop reading here.

The Cast of Silicon Valley Explains What Real Startups Do

My friend Kurt and I are the only two people from our small hometown in Washington from our graduating class working in Silicon Valley. What that means is that a lot of people like to ask me what it’s like to work in it and they often go straight to the HBO show “Silicon Valley.” ¬†– “It’s like that, right? It’s totally like that, I bet.” Umm… no. But I’ll let you think that if you want! I kind of enjoyed this video by Wired of the cast of Silicon Valley guessing what startups do based on their name and it’s pretty ridiculous and NSFW (language wise) so if you’re watching this at work, I hope you have headphones!

Song of the Day

Ariana Grande – Be Alright

Ariana officially released this song earlier this week, but we heard it for the first time during her performance on SNL! It’s a pretty simple song and doesn’t showcase a whole lot, but it’s such a great “feel good” song that we thought it was perfect for kicking off our Sunday and BIRTHDAY WEEK! It also just kind of goes along with how we’ve been feeling about 2016 in general.
