TV: Unreal So I was prepping to talk about how amazing Unreal is while comparing it to my own personal experience working on The Bachelor and was all, "I was just like the PA with the braids except when the boss yelled I wasn't all cool and chill, I just cried. A lot." But then I watched the episode where the… Continue reading Of the Week

What you should be watching and reading and listening to this week. First of all, if you're still not watching Broad City, you're missing out on the most hilarious, inventive... you know what?

TV: How to Get Away With Murder Unless you've been living under a rock, you've no doubt heard about How to Get Away With Murder. I can't praise this show highly enough. Seriously. It's AMAZING!

Like, arty, creepy ass pictures. Will Ferrell's production company (Gary Sanchez) is forming a "female-driven" division (Gloria Sanchez). Awesome, awesome, awesome-sauce. Tired of… Continue reading Of the Week

While what's going on in Russia is obviously a terrible, no-good, really bad thing, I'd like to take a moment to acknowledge how well the rest of the world is responding. Keep in mind that en masse, Internet-wide LBGTQ(IA*) support is a new thing. I think we (we, of course, being a relative term, meant… Continue reading Of the Week

National flags made of their country's traditional food. Exactly what it sounds like. And super cute. (Online) dating in "No Fun City*" aka Vancouver.  A few well written stories. All the places Canadians can get holiday/work visas. Whaaat? We have so many options! Anna Kendrick is the bestest; and the writer of this ad deserves an… Continue reading Of Last Week
