1| Apparently Thor: Ragnorak is going for a 90s punk aesthetic, and I am HERE. FOR. IT. (Especially sexy blue-eyelinered Jeff Goldblum.)
2| I’ve always loved Spike, but now I love James Marsters for his beautifully compassionate discussion about that horrific rape attempt in season 6 of Buffy.
3| Full disclosure: I haven’t read this yet, but it’s Soft Professor Chris Evans talking about how much he hates ne0-Nazis, so I have a hard time believing it’s not worth reccing.
Yesterday Elizabeth enlightened me on the hottest men from 1910-1950. Since I have very little knowledge of the hottest men of yesteryear, she got very little pushback. Today…I have some opinions!
[Click HERE to read our earlier conversation and what led to Elizabeth saying…]
Elizabeth: Just to splash some cold water on you
Elizabeth: For the 1960s I have again chosen Cary Grant, because his perfection cannot be contained by one decade.
Elizabeth: I realize this is cheating, and I don’t care.
Tricia: I approve of your cheating.

1| Sashayed’s Fall Playlist
I follow tumblr blogger Sashayed religiously, since she is clever, funny, has the cutest cat, and is horrified to find herself a 30-year-old One Direction fan. She very occasionally creates playlists on 8tracks, including an awesome Pop Maenads series. She just recently posted a second fall mix, Watch for Deer at Dawn, full of hipster lilting melodies, banjos, and the smell of cold in the air.
Tomorrow my high school friend Hope is getting married! As a 27-year-old single person, I inevitably have mixed feelings about going. On the one hand, I am super into celebrating life events with the people I love. And a day full of fancy outfits, food, drinks, and dancing? Obviously I’m into it. But…oh joy, one more person getting married before me. And also, I’m not complaining about taking my dear friend Emily as my plus one, but…I guess I’m complaining a little, because none of my guy friends are single anymore. 90% of the time I love my life, but it’s times like these that I just want a boyfriend to be my date to a wedding.

Wet Hot American Summer
I’d heard about this weird movie that starred a lot of current comedian gods and goddesses, but never really had the motivation to watch it. When I heard about Netflix’s sequel (prequel), I figured I’d give it a shot. You should too! Wet Hot American Summer is absurd humor at its finest. And it is so enjoyable to see Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper and many more familiar faces having the time of their lives.
Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp
This 8-episode “prequel” is even weirder than the movie that inspired it! I adored every single self-aware reference to the fact that men and women in their 40s were playing teenagers. The jokes get stretched further, the characters are more hilarious than ever, and the famous faces grow in number. I’m guessing a lot of actors were fans of the movie and begged to be in the show; especially noteworthy are Chris Pine, Jon Hamm, and Kristen Wiig. I’m not in the cult deep enough to know if this is a popular opinion or not, but I think I liked First Day of Camp even better than Wet Hot American Summer. Continue reading
