SXSW 2011: Day 1 Wrap Up

Well, we hit ground running here in Austin with the best start imaginable. Our numero uno Girl Crush, Hilah Johnson, was kind enough to pick us up and make a delicious lunch for us before dropping us off at the film festival.  It is worth mentioning that she did all of this before appearing...

Movie Review: ‘Rango’

March 4, 2011
Movie Review: ‘Rango’

Capsule Review Rango charmed my pants off. The story can be boiled down to one of existential crisis and exploration of personal identity. A terrarium dwelling chameleon struggles to create a community in his limited environment - with only a plastic goldfish, a Barbie’s headless torso, a dish of water and his theatrically-inclined imagination for company. When accidental circumstances...

Movie Review: Unknown

February 18, 2011
Movie Review: Unknown

Unknown (directed by Jaume Collet-Serra) has some interesting elements going for it. Set in Berlin and armed with an attractive and sturdy cast, Unknown is swimming in themes of mistaken identity, murder and espionage – arguably very exciting and entertaining things. Unfortunately those elements are combined with implausibly pat coincidences, clunky dialogue and a...

‘Black Swan’: C’est Non ‘Dogtooth’

‘Black Swan’: C’est Non ‘Dogtooth’

I like dance movies. I prefer my dance movies to be blatantly, unabashedly stupid and I am happiest when such a film features a dance-off of sorts. I recently saw Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan and I feel like I had reasonable expectations going into it. I knew it would be beautifully shot. I suspected that the storyline would...

D(on’t)DIY: A Cautionary Tale In Hair

D(on’t)DIY: A Cautionary Tale In Hair

It shouldn’t have surprised me when my four year old daughter (Happy Birthday Wee!) cut her own hair for the third time last fall.  In November, after a suspiciously quiet ‘nap’,  she proudly emerged from her room with bangs cut to the scalp and half of a mohawk - punctuated by two bald spots gleaming above her...

In The Tank (Thong)

In The Tank (Thong)

Oh man.  Let’s hope that 2011 isn’t as awful as 2010, can we make a deal?  Can we shake on that?  My mantra of late has been along the lines of, ‘Well.  I don’t know.  I can’t see it getting…WORSE’ and that has been about as much optimism as I am capable of summoning at this point....

Brown Paper Packages Tied Up With Strings

Brown Paper Packages Tied Up With Strings

Dears, I don’t care for this winter business.  The extra hours of darkness and cold weather give me seasonal depression – a condition that is worsened by the melancholy that seems to go hand and hand with the holidays.  It’s tough for me to make merry, is my point. Luckily, I have found several things...

The Customer Is Always Right (And Sometimes High)

The Customer Is Always Right (And Sometimes High)

One of my favorite places of employment is unfortunately responsible for one of my least favorite customer service experiences in memory.  To put that into proper context, you must understand that I once held a job which – owing to an extremely flexible return policy and one vehemently disgruntled customer – required of me to return, process...

Snowballs.

December 1, 2010
Snowballs.

I don’t like Christmas music. This has been a point of contention in my relationship with my husband – who LOVES Christmas music –  for as long as we have known one another.  Creating a cheerful, holiday atmosphere with lights, a tree, trimmings and various festive elements (illegal fire-works, toilet papering…) is something I actually...
