Thousand Pieces of Gold, or: My Own Prospecting Idaho

It.  Is.  Period drama month!!!  To celebrate, I’m throwing an extra period drama or two into this month’s lineup, along with our usual Blog Collab programming.  The only thing I love more than a period drama is a socially conscious period drama, so this film scores major points with me.

Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, or: I Was Promised Melanie Lynskey

This week’s pick is a stretch in terms of our Melanie Lynskey theme, but the only other films of hers coming to my mind were Heavenly Creatures and Ever After.  Since we’re all about broadening our horizons through this blog collab, we opted for this questionable doomsday comedy that, sadly, doesn’t give our star of the month (year,… Continue reading Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, or: I Was Promised Melanie Lynskey

Drive Me Crazy, or: Teen Spirits

This week’s film is brought to you by bad decisions to revisit, ahem, “classics,” and by the sudden realization that you had terrible taste as a child/teen/human being. I just wanted to remember Melissa Joan Hart before the “attack on Christianity” propaganda films.  Is that wrong? The Film: Drive Me Crazy Where to Watch: Netflix… Continue reading Drive Me Crazy, or: Teen Spirits

10 Things I Hate About the Daily Prompt

I hate the daily prompt, guys. “You’ve come into possession of one vial of truth serum. Who would you give it to (with the person’s consent, of course) — and what questions would you ask?” It’s like these WordPress people know how much I despise talking about myself in blog posts. I’M JUST HERE TO… Continue reading 10 Things I Hate About the Daily Prompt
