Hey World, You’ve Been Gilmored: Tips for Binge-Watching Gilmore Girls on Netflix

Originally posted on Cookies + Sangria:
*Starting today, July 1st, the rest of the world will be able to experience what us Americans have been able to enjoy for the past two years – the entirety of Gilmore Girls on Netflix Instant. Obviously this is a smart move for Netflix ahead of Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life premiering later this year, but now I feel like the show’s going to have an even larger global fan base than ever before. So if you happen to be watching the show for the first time this weekend, international readers, here’s a handy guide to making it through the entire series. I made this in 2014 when GG first hit Netflix in America, so I’ve made a few updates throughout. Copperboom!* It’s happening you guys. IT’S ALL HAPPENING. Sorry I yelled at you. Let’s make up. I’m just super excited for the recent news coming out of Netflix HQ: All seven seasons of Gilmore Girls are coming to Netflix Instant. That’s right – 153 episodes, about 6,732…

Gunther Better Work There!: Central Perk Cafe Coming to Toronto

Originally posted on The Nostalgia Blog:
Toronto will apparently become the latest city (joining NYC, Sydney, Beijing and Liverpool) to have their very own Central Perk Cafe. The cafe opens in June and will supposedly give out prizes to customers who come in dressed as FRIENDS characters…so I guess people with gel in their hair and wearing t-shirts tucked into khaki pants. The attention to detail will supposedly be uncanny so this should be a big draw for die-hard FRIENDS fans. I just finally hope it answers the question of how 6 more or less fully employed people can spend 60% of their lives in a cafe and still afford to live in New York…Also I hope the barista has bleach blonde hair.

Star Wars: Before the Awakening by Greg Rucka

Originally posted on Rachael's Bookshelf:
RATING: 5/5 SYNOPSIS: The tales of Finn, Rey, and Poe in the days prior to the start of The Force Awakens. ? This book does a great job in helping to cement the things that you already thought about the characters after seeing the film and it also provides a nice backstory for Poe Dameron since we don’t see as much of him as we do Finn and Rey. In Finn’s story we get to see Stormtrooper training and really get into that whole hive mentality that keeps them all in check. I really enjoyed learning just a little bit more about the Stormtrooper teams and how they worked and I liked seeing them interact with each other outside of battle. I especially liked that we got to see some more of Captain Phasma and General Hux. I felt like I knew Phasma a little better after reading the section and I’m also more interested in Hux as a character. The relationship between Phasma and Finn was really interesting and I…

Harry Potter Themed Bar in Toronto

Originally posted on Fandom Addict:
Hi everyone, This is probably the coolest fandom news I’ve posted about so far! A new Harry Potter – themed bar has opened in Toronto, and it looks so amazing! It is absolutely the place to be if you’re a Harry Potter fan. I’m considering taking a road trip up there from New York (where I live) just for this. The bar is called The Lockhart, after our favorite ladies’ man of the Harry Potter world. The make some serious “Potions and Elixirs”, and titled a lot of their drinks after subtle Harry Potter terms, like “Befuddlement Brew” and “The Shacklebolt”. There’s so much more, and you can read about it and see more pictures here. I’m so excited to go here someday! Until next time! Have any more Potter news? Comment below!

I am an Anime Anarchist

Originally posted on A Pinoy Millennial:
No, it does not mean I’m a guy who uses anime to push a particular brand of politics/philosophy. By this, I’m simply a guy who sticks to what he likes and people who want to be mean to me about it can just eat their hats. Sure, that’s closer to a hedonist than what your average philosopher would call an anarchist. But apparently, it’s anarchy enough when you don’t care about the sacred rules held by so-called standard bearers of otaku taste. Besides, I don’t simply just hold to what I like. I tend to go out of my way to set the snobby hipsters straight. Sure, there might be some things that are just crass. But if all you do is take every opportunity to whine about this or that anime being so bad, so stupid, or so mainstream, I really have just one thing to say: Feel free to jump off. Sometimes when there’s talk of anime in my FB circle, I feel like I’m the only…

Who is A? – My Predictions

Originally posted on Fandom Addict:
Hi everyone, So the mid-season finale for Pretty Little Liars airs tomorrow! This episode is probably the most important in the series: it’s A’s identity reveal! The most recent episodes have revealed some incredibly important clues that bring us closer to solving the mystery. Charles DiLaurentis is alive and wanted by the Rosewood police. Red Coat is still in the picture. Clark and Lorenzo aren’t bad. I. Marlene King, the show’s executive producer, has said that we have met A, meaning he/she is one of the characters already introduced in the show. There are many different speculations on who A and Red Coat are, and after a lot of deep thinking, I’ve come up with my own guesses. A’s Identity I’ve put a lot of thought into this, and here’s what I think: I think Charles is A, but I’m not sure who Charles is. The newest character that has been added to the series is Reese, and he definitely looks like a DeLaurentis. I thought he was Jason when…
