She’s Abroad: Barefoot

Barefoot“Has anyone here ever heard of the popular saying, “No Shoes, No Service?” It’s definitely a thing. And it’s a thing for good reasons!” My first weekend in New Zealand, like many tourists, was spent in Hobbiton. I was fully prepared for the Hobbit holes and the Hobbit gardens. Everything was miniature and adorable! What… Read more »

A Fashionable Lifestyle: Common White Boy Starter Kit

Common White Boy Starter Kit “You’ve got to start believing, even against your better judgment, that Kendrick Lamar and Kayne West are completely respectable hip-hop legends.” It has come to my attention that the common white boy is evolving into a longboarding, rap loving, douche at a pace comparable to the recent measles outbreak. These boys… Read more »

Richard Swainson | Rating: 4/5  Not the least of this disturbing drama’s strengths is that it casts three well known movie stars against type. Steve Carrell buries all his comedic shtick beneath a putty nose and fake liver spots, playing the haughty John du Pont, a lonely patrician looking to invest a portion of inherited millions… Read more »
