The Fate of the Furious

I saw this movie on Sunday and am still processing it. Wow. It was phenomenal and I can not get over any of it. Also, I’m grateful to the boyfriend who suggested we go early to avoid crowds; there were 2 other couples in the theatre with us, and the ones that sat in the same row as us were as excited as we were, so it felt great to see it then.

I’m really excited about this movie but I have to tell you right now, there will be spoilers strewn throughout this article, so consider this your…

Fast & Furious

Fangirls I have spent the past two weeks making my way through the Fast & Furious movies. Last night I finally watched 7 (we were supposed to watch it on friday but our disc doesn’t work). So I finished up the series last night, and holy crap. I thought this series was just going to be dumb action stuff, but feelings for these sneak up on you and hit you incredibly hard.

Fun Home by Alison Bechdel

Fangirls, I have wanted this book for almost a year now, since I saw the Tony Awards with a scene from the musical based off of this comic. I never bought it because it wasn’t at the forefront of my mind until I had left the comic shop. Luckily, my girl Ashley knows me incredibly well, and bought it for me for Christmas. It took me awhile to get to it, but once I did, I didn’t stop.

The Good Dinosaur

Fangirls, we all know how I feel about Disney and Pixar. They’re my OTP, my faves and baes, the queen and king. I love them so much.

I told her that I knew I would be crying by the end of it, so it was likely that she would tear up at some point.

On: Ancestry

Nora's_ShipSince I was a child, I’ve been trying to pull out as much information about my family as I could from my parents. I’ve always felt a sense of importance about it. When I got to that age when you realize your parents do not know the answer to every question, things slowed down. Until a few months ago, I wasn’t taking in much in the way of new information. Now, it’s coming in waves. Huge, overwhelming, fucking fantastic waves. Read More »

Watch: Parenthood

www.5alarmmusic.com (parenthood)I’m deep in a new show obsession, Fangirls. I’ve seen a bit of episode of Parenthood here or there, but never sat down to see what it was like. It seemed good enough. Boy, is it way more than just “good enough”. I started it on Friday, and am now waiting to watch the last episode of season one after I finish this article. This show is a damn masterpiece.
