It’s been a rough few weeks for Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The network-that-shall-not-be-named tried to throw this precious gem of a show in the trash, but the wonderful angels at NBC have rescued B99 for another season and all is right with the world (well, not the world, but let’s not get started on that). After having my heart ripped out, stomped on, and taped back together by NBC, I decided that now is the perfect time to make a list celebrating all the reasons to love Brooklyn Nine-Nine*. There are about a million reasons to love this show, but I’ve narrowed it down to my personal top ten. If you haven’t watched Brooklyn Nine-Nine yet, go binge this show on Hulu right now and then come back and read this list. So sit down and get ready to shout, “Nine-Nine!”
You know what’s great? Fandoms. Fandoms are wonderful and make us feel like we can do anything we can imagine. You know what else can do that? Beauty items! Anything from makeup to bath bombs, finding that special item and then using it, can make you feel anything from relaxed to the boss babe you are. So when our favorite fandoms meet the world of beauty, the world explodes. I’ve compiled a list of some lovely fandom beauty items just for you! So, prepare to rock your inner geek and feel and look like a geeky rockstar!
So, I don’t know about you, but I have a bad habit. I buy books. A lot of books. My To-Be-Read (TBR) pile is already enormous, but I just can’t stop myself. I see a book I want and most of the time I grab it. Everyday is a day to treat yourself to a book. While I may never be able to manage this book buying addiction, I thought I could at least share all the books I’ve bought so far this year and we could commiserate with each other over having way too many books and so little time to read them all. While I did manage to only buy 10 books so far this year, I have tried really hard to actually read some of the books I bought instead of just adding them to my Mt. Everest of TBR. So, without further ado, here is my quarterly YA books haul featuring some mini reviews! Continue reading →
Back in 2004, Wonderfalls was a series without a chance. Its network ordered 13 episodes, but only aired four… out of order and on two different nights. Can you guess which network it was? FOX, of course!
Eventually, though, all 13 episodes saw the light of day when the complete series was released on DVD. More than a decade later, very few people remember the series. I happen to be one of the few and over the years, I’ve shared my love of the show with close friends who were willing to give it the time of day. Taylor happened to be such a friend. Together, we’d like to share a bit about the show with you.
