Mike Judge Alert: Silicon Valley

Mike Judge Alert: Silicon Valley

I exclaimed loudly when I saw the Silicon Valley promo before Girls a few weeks ago. Because not only does this new HBO series star HILARIOUS bros like Martin Starr (Freaks and Geeks, duh.), T.J. Miller (the most hilarious part of Our Idiot Brother), Kumail Nanjiani (general lulz), Zach Woods (Gabe from The Office), but(…)

Can’t Wait for Six by Sondheim

Can’t Wait for Six by Sondheim

When it comes to naming my favorite musical, I find myself torn between Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Jesus Christ Superstar and Stephen Sondheim’s Company. But…when it comes to naming my favorite musical theater composer/lyricist/creator – hands down, it’s Sondheim. Where ALW sometimes ventures into over-dramatic schlock (which I still, admittedly, love), SS takes a subtler approach,(…)

So Many Emotions for Patti Lupone: A YoungArts Masterclass!

So Many Emotions for Patti Lupone: A YoungArts Masterclass!

The fates were on my side on April Fools Day when I got done working out, flipped on the TV and found that something called Patti Lupone: A YoungArts Masterclass was just starting. I can’t really think of anything involving Patti Lupone that I wouldn’t watch. Patti Lupone: Extreme Hoarder? Sure! The O’Reilly + Lupone(…)

Worth Your Viewing Pleasure: The Carrie Diaries

Worth Your Viewing Pleasure: The Carrie Diaries

It’s true, I cringed at the sight of the first ad I saw of The Carrie Diaires.  It just seemed like too much to live up to, and so often prequels are a just a distant shadow of the O.G.  There’s also the fact that the show was a creation of the CW – this(…)

Kristen Wiig Leaves SNL, I Cry

Kristen Wiig Leaves SNL, I Cry

I’ll just say it: Kristen Wiig is my favorite SNL cast member of all time. So talented and so relatable, she manages to master both the super deadpan and the totally f-ing weird, resulting in some of the most amazing SNL characters ever like Kat (of Garth and Kat), movie critic Aunt Linda, extreme one-upper(…)

It’s Back! Game of Thrones this Sunday

It’s been sneaking up on us for the past couple of weeks now, and with our excitement of the Hunger Games we were too busy worrying about the odds being in our favor to consider who will be back to play the Game of Thrones. If you haven’t seen the first season, you better start(…)

Best Made Company Whiskey Tumblers

The Game of Thrones, my very favorite epic medieval novels, are loaded with references to boozing out of horns, war horns, and of course, deadly dragon-wakening horns. Best Made Company has now made living in George RR Martin’s world a little more possible, with these whiskey tumblers that would be beautiful to set out on(…)
