Fangirl Friday for the Week of December 19th, 2014
GAH I MISSED A WEEK! Horrendous behaviour, just abhorrent. Oh well.
We must move on.
Here's what's awesome this week!
Movie of the Week
The Corner Gas Movie
I work for a TV festival and we were lucky enough to have the cast and crew of Corner Gas come and talk to us (and fans) about the return to Dog River. This movie was hilarious, it was good ol' Canadian fun, full of the laughs and goodheartedness that we've come to expect from Brent Butt and his gang. Definitely recommend for a night in with lots of popcorn.
Album of the Week
Strange Desire - Bleachers
I'm going to see Bleachers in concert tonight (!) so Strange Desire kind of has to be my album pick of the week. This is actually one of the strongest albums I've listened to in awhile, from start to finish. His electro-pop, Springsteen-inspired, guitar-riffy jams are all over the place and are kind of impeccable. AND I GET TO GO SEE IT ALL PERFORMED LIVE. Thank God I live in a place people actually want to perform in. But, seriously, can bands stop touring Canada in the winter? No one wins at this game. Sigh.
Hair Tutorial of the Week
This braid tutorial that I have failed at multiple times and have essentially given up on for today but that looks really cool on this girl.
TV Show of the Week
Jane the Virgin
I admit to being wary of watching a show with my name in its title but after seeing this show essentially explode on Tumblr I decided to give in. I've only watched the first two episodes but I'm already completely hooked. I love the telenovela style, how overly insanely dramatic everything is, it has one of the best narrators I've heard in a very long time and it's just super adorable. The acting is fantastic and CW totally wins for allowing Spanish subtitles in a mainstream show (yay, realism!). Go watch this now!
And that's it! I'm slowly gearing up for my move but I've allowed myself a bit of a break this week. Next week, back to the job hunt and a massive closet overhaul. Wish me luck.
I will also be doing the Pop Sugar 2015 Book Challenge for this site. I only want to write about female written books, so if you have any recommendations, please leave them in the comments!
