It’s 2016: Let’s All (Re)Decorate For Fuller House!

Originally posted on Cookies + Sangria:
So remember a couple months ago when Netflix (pause: I was typing this and a Fuller House commercial legit came on the TV – it’s weird this popular streaming service is advertising on network TV. ANYWAYS) released the first promo for Fuller House? If you don’t, maybe it’s because you blocked it out after CRYING SO MANY UNEXPECTED TEARS. https://youtu.be/uhInIOKwGXU It was the first look into the new era of a Tanner family, or rather “Fuller” family since that’s DJ’s married name now, and how things have changed since 1995. Specifically, it’s comprised of shots of an empty house, which looks all too familiar and different at the same time. For many of us, this home isn’t just the ‘house that built the tanners’, it’s the ‘house that built me’ as a viewer as well. But of course they can’t keep the exact same set from 20 years ago. It’s TV, things need to updated and shown that time has passed, so in conjunction with our ongoing series Let’s All Decorate,…

Michael B. Jordan: An Adonis To Be Thankful For

Guys, listen. It’s Monday. It’s the first day back from a four-day weekend. You stuffed your face with food and then stuffed your ears with Christmas music. We shouldn’t have to be at work right now. But alas, here we are. And I appreciate you taking the time out of your day to read this – aka procrastinating your work a bit more. In return, I’m going to stuff your eyes with one of God’s greatest gifts to mankind, Michael B. Jordan. Over the weekend, I saw Creed, the Rocky spin-off movie. If you know me, this may be a somewhat surprising choice for holiday weekend viewing because I usually don’t put sports movies on the top of my list. However, if you do know me, you know I’m a fan of Michael B. Jordan and HBMs in general. On top of that, I kept hearing nothing but good things about Creed, so I caved and went to see it. And let me tell you  – I haven’t been able to…

Grudging: Birth of Saints

Originally posted on Suddenly they all died. The end.:
On Thursday, a brand new novel had a fantastic cover reveal, and I signed up with Rockstar Book Tours to help spread the word.  But Thursday was a rough day, and Friday was no better, and yesterday was just wild.  So today, I’m stealing five minutes to tell you about a new book from Michelle Hauck called Grudging: A world of chivalry and witchcraft…and the invaders who would destroy everything. The North has invaded, bringing a cruel religion and no mercy. The ciudades-estados who have stood in their way have been razed to nothing, and now the horde is before the gates of Colina Hermosa…demanding blood. On a mission of desperation, a small group escapes the besieged city in search of the one thing that might stem the tide of Northerners: the witches of the southern swamps. The Women of the Song. But when tragedy strikes their negotiations, all that is left is a single untried knight and a witch who has never given voice to her…

Harry Potter and Adulthood

On October 6th the illustrated version of the first Harry Potter book HP and the Philosopher’s Stone (or Sorcerer’s Stone in the USA) will be released and I am extremely excited for it. I have seen the samples and my little geeky heart skipped a beat. As I am nearing the age of 30, I think plenty of people don’t quite understand why I am still so obsessed with a story that was written for children, and while I don’t owe any kind of asshole any sort of explanation, the explanation is quite easy. I WAS a child when the first book was released. From there I grew up with Harry and his friends. As they entered awkward teen years, I was in the midst of my awkward teen years, as they got slammed into adulthood, I did as well. I literally grew up with these books. But honestly, even if you are only now as an adult getting into Harry Potter, GOOD FOR YOU!! It is not…
