Briefly, at Tiffany’s

Very random, but: How did I go this long never seeing Breakfast at Tiffany's? And why didn't anyone TELL me that there is, in fact, plot, that it's not just about some social climbing bitch and that there's a writer and typewriter action in this movie? Now I'm on an old movie kick. Must get… Continue reading Briefly, at Tiffany’s

The HelpThis is the last regular post I have planned in this series, though my next Netflix might get tagged on at the end and I'll probably revisit it from time to time, since by now you all know how much I love writing about costumes in general, and period costumes in particular.I talked a… Continue reading Costume p0rn and Typewriters VI

The King's SpeechThis is another movie I've spoken about on the blog, rather at length, so let me sum up: Great hats, elegant costumes (would there be anything else in a film about British Royalty?) and an Oliver (which seems to be eluding my image searches, along with some of the better dresses from the… Continue reading Costume p0rn and Typewriters V

The MummyI know I've talked about The Mummy and The Mummy Returns on this blog before, way back when. Why do I love these movies so much? I don't know. They aren't even remotely historically accurate, the mythology is way off base, the plots are so-so, and I have to cover my eyes any time… Continue reading Costume p0rn and Typewriters IV

A List, Some Reviews, and BOOYA!

1. I recently finished Gate of Darkness, Circle of Light by Tanya Huff. This was her second or third novel, I believe, and one of her lesser known ones. I strongly recommend that any fans of urban fantasy check it out as it is just as good as her Blood Ties books. It follows nicely… Continue reading A List, Some Reviews, and BOOYA!



Currently reading: Proven Guilty In the DVD player: Iron Jawed Angels I've been going through my extensive film library, trying to compile a list of movies and tv shows that include typewriters, and the makes and models where possible. Last night I got to watch one of my favorites: Iron Jawed Angels. For starters, the… Continue reading Mabel


May I borrow your shoe phone?

Since today was my day off, Mom and I drove into Hilliard to see a movie. We stopped first at work, so that I could spend the lovely $30 gift card that she and my dad got me. I picked up two new tops and a pair of pants for work. It's sad that I… Continue reading May I borrow your shoe phone?
