I’m planning on seeing The Great Gatsby this weekend, but regardless of whether the film is good or bad, I know one thing: its soundtrack is amazing. Seriously, listening to this on repeat got me through the last half of finals.
This video is very cute, but at the same time, every time I watch it, I’m super anxious and scared for the puppies. Is that normal? Puppies vs. Stairs: The Ultimate Supercut. Also, the pug hopping up the stairs at the end kills me.
You know how, if you’re a food blogger, you write a post and try to come up with a clever little introductory hook before giving the recipe? Well, everyone can stop doing that now, because nobody will ever top this: Cuban Sandwiches: Don’t Mess with the Bey.
I have literally been reading Roger Ebert’s movie reviews since I was a little girl (I used to read them every Friday in our local paper), so I was sad to hear of his death. I thought about linking to one of the many tribute articles that have sprung up for him, but in the end, I think his own words are the most poignant: I Do Not Fear Death.
A new Gatsby trailer, this time with a little Beyonce and Florence & the Machine thrown in for good measure. There is absolutely no way that this movie is going to live up to my insanely high expectations, but…doesn’t it look incredible?
Brilliant illustrations: See Game of Thrones Reimagined As Mad Men, Seinfeld, and Arrested Development.
What if guns in movies were replaced with thumbs ups? Thumbs and Ammo. Oddly fascinating.
This is just about the only thing I’ve ever found endearing about George W. Bush: his paintings.
I’ve never particularly cared about Olivia Wilde, but after seeing this clip of her explaining her Twitter war with Justin Bieber’s crazy fangirls, I’ve decided she’s awesome. So funny, in fact, that many of her jokes seemed to elude Jay Leno (who, BTW, can go away any time now).
I don’t even like cats, but this one is too cute not to like.
The 5 Reasons Girls Type Like Thissss. I’ll admit, I’m guilty of this at times but, mostly, I’m annoyed with how often I see it on Facebook/Twitter/text messages/planet earth in general. Ladies, we can do better.
Love this: I Want to Be a March Sister. I’m pretty sure I’ve written this before but, Little Women is one of the most underrated movies of all time. And the book is pretty spectacular too (though that much goes without saying).
$20,000 is pennies when it comes to law school debt, but this video still made me cry. Also: Ellen is awesome at life.
This sums it up: What Grad School Is REALLY Like. Most accurate (yet soul-crushing) part? “In college you feel pretty confident, because you were at the top of your class…But guess what? Everyone at grad school was the smartest kid at THEIR college.”
After watching the Top Chef finale, I almost felt compelled to write something about it, but then I read this and realized there was no need: he sums up everything I felt perfectly. Love Kristen and Brooke, hate that they didn’t get a final challenge that really allowed them to shine.
If last season’s MVP of New Girl was Schmidt (by a mile), this year’s is Nick Miller. Here’s why.
This kills me because I was a sophomore circa 2006 and so many things about this are accurate: A Typical Night Studying in 2006. For instance: lofted beds, listening to the Fray, the Dell laptop, and AOL instant messaging.
Leslie and Ben’s wedding on Parks and Rec was one of the most adorable things ever televised. Here’s the story of her unique wedding dress, which could not have been more perfect. And I love that someone at NBC made a Pinterest board of the wedding.
Though it doesn’t premiere for a few weeks, the first episode of The Mindy Project is on Hulu. I already love this show. Reason 1 – Mindy Kaling. Reason 2 – Chris Messina. Reason 3 – This bit of dialogue: “We do not know that he is bad news. I think he has a good heart. I think he’s Hugh Grant in About a Boy.” “I think that he is Hugh Grant, in real life.”
I’ve been getting pumped about fall movies lately – first I saw trailers for Great Gatsby, then Les Mis, then Django Unchained. And now this: Anna Karenina. It looks absolutely stunning. And I’m still marveling how they managed to make Jude Law (freaking Jude Law!) ugly.
The weekly-ish roundup of all that is awesome from the internets:
I never get tired of a good flash mob, and this one (inside the Copenhagen Metro) is particularly beautiful.
If I could only see one movie in 2012, I would probably choose the Great Gatsby. The trailer just came out, and it looks amazing. Of course, I thought the last trailer for a Baz Luhrmann film (Australia) looked amazing, and look how that movie turned out (hint: not well).
On second thought…the trailer for Les Mis also looks amazing. Sing it, Anne Hathaway.
A Game of Thrones cooking blog. This might sound dorky, but I think that’s a pretty cool idea – and the amount of detail, time, and thought put into the website is incredible.
And one more GoT thing – a comparison of the characters in Game of Thrones and Mad Men. All are pretty funny, but my favorite is definitely Hodor and Trudy Campbell.
I love this list of beautiful song lyrics. Number 4 is from my all-time favorite song; number 7 is lovely; number 10 is not the Jeff Buckley song I would have chosen (I would’ve gone with lyrics from this one), but is still lovely; and number 22 might just be my number one, if I wrote the list.
