A Controversial Ranking of Mr. Darcys

As an attempt to seem like a well-read young teen, I tried very hard to read Pride and Prejudice. I always failed. I found it boring and dated! I only managed to read the book in its entirety when I was twenty, the same age as Elizabeth Bennet. Fully post-pubescent, I understood why, nearly 200 years on, Mr. Darcy was still the prototype of every curly-haired romantic comedy lead. Mr. Darcy is a haughty, awkward snob, but he’s got a heart of gold and rocks a loose chemise (in my imagination) like no other.

Luckily for me, Hollywood cannot come up with fresh ideas and I get to experience [...]


An Unofficial Ranking of Some of the Boyz II Men Mid-Song Monologues

Boyz II Men. What can I say? For me, it started in the nineties, when Stephanie Tanner chose to fuck up her “street jazz” routine to “Motown Philly” because she didn’t want to be a professional dancer. The song and choreography had me (and most sixth grade girls I knew) hooked. Stephanie had only decided 15 minutes prior that she wanted to go pro, so it was especially crazy that 22 minutes into the episode, she had changed her mind and sabotaged her recital! FYI, this is rude, and the episode should have actually focused more on: realistic dreams and the time it takes to achieve them, and [...]

Imagining Grown-Ass Eloise

"I’m going to go all out and call Eloise a classist creation, a girl who fetishizes commodities like expensive hotels and room service. A girl, in short, who believes she deserves to be served, rather than to serve others. The Paris Hilton of the girls’ book heroine set, destined for future floozy-hood. Per Anna Quindlen, 'When I think of Eloise grown up, I think of her with a drinking problem, knocking about from avocation to avocation, unhappily married or unhappily divorced, childless.'"

-At Flavorwire, Michelle Dean ranks 20 "classic girl heroines of literature" and has some WORDS for the girl on the tippy-top floor. We can't pin this [...]


All of Mark Ruffalo’s On-Screen Kisses, From Worst to Best

Hand up if you don’t want to bone Mark Ruffalo. Ok, go away: this is not for you. The rest of you: welcome. We are all made of stars and of the desire to tug down Mark Ruffalo’s pants. What is it about this fine three-quarters-Italian man? He is beautiful and soft, like a teddy bear you want to fuck. His film roles are made up of a) cops, b) damaged but handsome men, c) loveable rogues, and d) the Hulk. He Instagrams poetry. He calls his wife “my queen.” 80% of his movies include a scene where he removes his shirt.

On behalf [...]
