End of July: there is a small but noticeable light at the end of the tunnel that is summer. The monsoon rains came on time this year, so the past few weeks have been a huge ball of humidity, on top of 105 degrees-plus. October can’t come soon enough, though. For right now, I’m going to focus on the good things: cold ass A/C in the movie theaters, dresses, and all these little things:
♠ Marking August 15th on my calendar: RiffTrax Starship Troopers!
♠ I have a very conflicted view (much like everyone else) on Blurred Lines, but I can admit that damn, that beat is wicked catchy. So, even more than the original, I dig the gender-swapped version.
♠ Grantland created this great video about the Compton Cricket Club, which I had never heard of before; now I want to give them all my money to keep it going.
♠ Fiona Apple and P. T. Anderson’s collaborations are always so great, and the “Hot Knife” video is no exception.
♠ Dominique Pruitt’s To Win Your Love is a perfect mini album to play while sippin mojitos, by the pool, or a lively sunset tiki and s’mores camp out!
