It’s End of Year List Time!

the grinch

I’m trying not to think of the End of the Year looming or the end of the decade for that matter. But I do need to get some organization going so I thought I’d do the tag but make it a bit of a catch-all for books, films and television!

The tag was originally created on Youtube by Ariel Bissett.

Ah, books about food!

I originally picked up this book of short stories with the plan to cook some of the food mentioned in this book- and there’s some good stuff. It’s a real food learning experience in the making.

But then I realized I’d have to clean up the mess so I figured I’d settle for reading about the food.

So we’re definitely getting House of the Dragon which is the Targaryen prequel to Game of Thrones that has been talked about for a while. If you’ve read Fire and Blood or know anything about the history… well the family is a mess but quiet honestly more interesting than these two screw-ups so I’m excited!

It also means lets all find our favorite blondes and start fan-casting!

Season 3 of The Crown is probably the last of my last big anticipated entertainment events of 2019. Netflix dropped the trailer and overall I’m actually a little more excited.

Just Don’t Hurt Hank: Barry Season One

Bill Hader as Barry

Barry

Created By: Bill Hader & Alec Berg

The first thing I want to admit about season one of Barry is it took me until episode 3 to really get into it. When Barry and Hank have the bullet argument I was totally in. And I find the character work and the writing of each season fascinating. Not the least bit because I’ve watched so many interviews with Hader and Berg about writing it that I can’t stop myself.

Shadow and Bone Casting News!

Shadow and Bone

So we have some casting news about the Shadow and Bone/Six of Crows series coming to Netflix and it looks really good. But it does lead to probably my biggest personal hang- up in YA fantasy casting adaptations.

September Ends at Last

Pennywise

September is finally ending.

Generally speaking it’s always been one of my least favorite months. Miserable heat while everyone else gets to start Fall (so it seems) and always without fail endless sinus infections and migraines that make a meeting with Pennywise look like a pleasant alternative.

Yeah, I am obviously ready for October.

The Emmy’s Actually Didn’t Annoy Me!

Jodie Comer as Villanelle

The Emmy’s were last night and I must admit for a show I wasn’t even going to watch as I thought they’d just give everything to Thrones and Veep I’m a little surprised by how happy I was with the winners!!

Adaptation News: Good vs. Evil & Blacks vs. Greens

Drogon

I’ll get to the dragon news but in already filming news have I been sleeping on the fact we’re getting a new adaptation of The Stand? It’s only my favorite King book and I actually really liked then 90’s miniseries.

How in the hell did I miss that?

The Best Teachers of Books, TV & Film

Summer is over and it’s time for my 2nd favorite time of year…

Back to school!

Okay, I haven’t had to go back to school in years but I still love when the school supplies come out and it means Fall is definitely in the air so I thought I’d do some of my favorite teachers in books, films and shows.
