I love writing but I'm bad at writing about me.
I loved that Tracee Ellis Ross interview! She had written a little bit about her hair for Entertainment Weekly last month: http://insidetv.ew.com/2014/12/04/tracee-ellis-ross-natural-hair/ I'm glad it was revisited.
I want that outfit to be my Halloween costume and my wedding dress.
@Jazmine Hughes @DullHypothesis I have learned that I can be SO PRODUCTIVE in the 7 minutes before something I want to watch is on TV. I decide that I should try getting some shit done, and I've got 7 minutes to at least start putting my clothes in the hamper (or putting clean laundry away - I honestly don't know why I pretend to use my closet) and then get to the TV and turn it on. I'm a huge procrastinator, but I've been realistic about that lately - like, I know I won't put these clothes away after my show is over, so I might as well take these 7 minutes and start now.
@lady_j Same. (And reading it over a week after it was published.)
@totallyunoriginal Same! I always liked this series.
@Jazmine Hughes This is pretty much what I was thinking and it hurts to realize that it's true. I mean, 12 Years a Slave's win made it look like there's a chance that progress is being made. We haven't seen much of that progress when it comes to awards ceremonies (or the way that studio heads and some audiences think, apparently.) Knowing the way that the Oscars are, maybe Selma will win Best Picture as a way to make up for every other category it was snubbed in? I don't know if that counts as a win, but... fuck. Ava DuVernay deserves to be riding high after this and fielding offers from everyone to direct everything.
<3 u, Haley.
@Nora_Lovo Selena Gomez would be perfect!
This is so perfect and also one of my favourite things to do when I watch a movie. Totally on board with Naomie Harris, too - I thought Don Cheadle was irreplaceable, but I should never for a second get to thinking he's irreplaceable.
"'Festivus isn’t Greek!' my boyfriend, a Greek, told me, exasperated. 'Festivus doesn’t even sound Greek.' He was right. If anything, it sounds vaguely Latin, but, again, if you’re coming from an underperforming inner-city public high school and just started dating a Greek guy, everything sounds sort of Greek. "
