The Fundamentals of Caring (2016)

Originally posted on LazySundayMovies:
“Pick a number between 1 and 3,500.” What’s it about? A guy in a wheelchair falls in love with the Mother of Dragons and a retired writer turned carer go on a road trip to the world’s deepest pit because road trips solve everything. Who’s in it? I know him as the kid from Tracy Beaker but you’ll probably recognise him as Assjuice from Bad Neighbours, Paul Rudd, Selena Gomez and the woman that was originally cast as Catelyn Stark. Why should I watch it? + First of all, Trevor is a very funny dude, he’s very sarcastic and pulls a lot of pranks + Using humour as a coping mechanism, which is something I can see myself doing if I was in his position + Paul Rudd was dialled back a bit but still manages to pull off laughs + Especially the “Bite of the James” scene + Seriously, Craig Roberts should get an Oscar just for not breaking character during that scene + Their back-and-forth jabs and constantly one…

Show You Should Be Watching If You Aren’t Already: Difficult People

Originally posted on Cookies + Sangria:
Tomorrow the second season of Hulu’s Difficult People premieres which means you have 24 hours or less to catch up (or at least start the first season if you haven’t already). If you haven’t heard of it, let me introduce you to a show about the most ridiculous human beings who you love and dislike greatly at the same time. Basic Plot https://youtu.be/WWcEktio9Is As best friends living in New York City, Billy and Julie’s typical, irreverent behavior lands them in some very awkward situations. It’s obviously not high concept, so it’s nothing like your Orphan Blacks or Mr. Robots. Think of it like Will & Grace meets… a less boring version of Seinfeld? But you know what else isn’t high concept? The reasons why you should start watching and catch up to ALL 8 EPISODES FROM THE FIRST SEASON (!) just in time for season two. Queen Amy Poehler Is Responsible For This Gem If you trust Queen Poehler’s comedic chops, then you should probably at least give this show a…

10 Cloverfield Lane (2016)

Originally posted on LazySundayMovies:
“People are strange creatures. You can’t always convince them that safety is in their best interest.” What’s it about? A woman gets in a car accident and wakes up in a bunker. A guy claims to have saved her from the wreck and from the contaminated air above after a chemical attack, but it seems that his story has more plot holes than Batman v Superman. Sorry Sadffleck. Who’s in it? Mary Elizabeth Winstead, John Goodman, the guy from Short Term 12 and a voice cameo from Bradley Cooper. Why should I watch it? + Doesn’t waste time grabbing your attention and once it’s got it, it doesn’t let go + John Goodman really stands out, incredible performance from being creepily intense to sincerely welcoming + Goes from “What a great host, why is she being rude?” to “Fuck this guy, get out of there!” + He would also make the worst Santa ever + MEW was also awesome, why isn’t she in more films? + Acts like how someone would in…

Travel Bucket List: Victoria Falls, Namibia

Originally posted on The Picky Eater Travels:
Travel Bucket List #2 Next on my travel bucket list is Victoria Falls in Namibia, Africa. What makes this place extra special besides being massive, at 5,604 feet wide, and 354 feet tall, is that there a spot in the falls called Devil’s Pool, where you can actually swim up to the edge looking over the falls. September- December is the best time to go, when the river flow and current are at a low level, and the rock barrier forms an eddy to help keep you from falling off the cliff. It is recommended though that you have someone hold you by the legs when you are taking a picture of your body somewhat over the cliff, as there have been some accidents where people have slipped off the rocks and fell off the cliff, but if you do your research and follow safety. I think this is one of those experiences where you are truly going to regret it if you don’t do it at least…

REMEMBRANCE will be the first ever adult installment of the Mediator, published by William Morrow, the adult division of HarperCollins, the company that brought you the YA books in the series. I was not feeling the cover at first, but now it’s kind of growing on me. It’s been six years since Suze…

The Pros and Cons of BroadwayCon

Originally posted on Cookies + Sangria:
If you’re a true theatre nerd, you know that over the weekend, hundreds of Broadway geeks converged at the Hilton Midtown Hotel for the first ever BroadwayCon – which is exactly what it sounds like. Like other fan-centered conventions, this one gathers fans with actors, creators, and behind-the-scenes folk who make Broadway Broadway. Co-founded by Anthony Rapp, of Rent fame, BroadwayCon featured panels from past shows such as the Rent 20th anniversary reunion, current shows like Hamilton, Spring Awakening and Fun Home, to future shows like Waitress, Tuck Everlasting and Disaster! The Musical. There were photobooth and autograph sessions, fan meetups, master classes, dance workshops and of course, plenty of singing. Before we go any further, I’d like to make it clear that I was not actually there. I am merely a spectator from the World Wide Web. I saw rumblings of #BroadwayCon on Twitter a while ago, and just thought it was some small event in NYC, but I was wrong. After tracking it online all weekend, I’ve come to this conclusion…

December Glossybox: The Rose Gold Edit

Originally posted on Chronic Pain Cockney – The Little Things:
To say that my December Glossybox arrived just as I was leaving for my Botox appointment makes my life sound soooo much more glamorous than it is. Nonetheless, it’s true. I was off to my 3 monthly Botox treatment for Chronic Migraine and not looking forward to it at all, as usual; the 30+ injections into scalp/neck/forehead/temples are really quite painful for me at the moment. So it was nice to have a treat waiting for me when I got home. ???? The box itself is very pretty and festive this month, without a snowman or Santa in sight. I’m always a fan of the special boxes but I particularly like this one; sooooo pretty & perfect for the glowy theme this month.? ?? ? This month’s box is the Rose Gold Edit produced in collaboration with blogger Really Ree.There are six products rather than the usual five with a combined value of over £50; Glossybox is always good value for money.? ??
