Have you heard? Joseph Gordon Levitt’s project HitRECord is becoming a TV show! I’m so excited for him and the company! I first found out about it on Tumblr years ago but haven’t been keeping up. The program will be on Pivot TV. If you, like me, don’t have cable, well I think we can still watch it on YouTube. The first episode is up now.
By now I’m sure you’ve heard that Sasheer Zamata, an ulum of the Upright Citizens Brigade, has been added to the cast of Saturday Night Live. She is the first black actress in five years. If not, well now you know. I understand and appreciate Linda Holmes’ take on how SNL is taking an important first step, but that “Whether this winds up meaning very much will depend on what happens next.” But based on Sasheer’s smart comedy, I’m pretty sure she’ll be fine.
As someone who struggles with anxiety and insecurity myself (actually, doesn’t everyone to some degree) I appreciated this post on anxiety and insecurity by Bri of Design Love Fest.
Seriously, what’s with all the think pieces written by older men about teenage girls? Hazel over at Rookie talks about how teens can have very good taste and overgeneralizing critics need to stop. I recommend following her on Twitter and Tumblr. She’s as funny as I hope to be.
I clicked on this “What Would Lorelai Gilmore Do?” post on The Toast from Welcome to Ladyville’s Wednesday Link Party. Then I came across this Playlist called “Hanging Out With Rory Gilmore” on Rookie. Heaven. I will always be a Gilmore Girls fan.
I was so excited when I found out that Mindy Kalling has her own fashion cover. I mean she does. Except she doesn’t. She’s sharing it with four other women because Elle decided to do one of those things where they have multiple covers. I agree with The Huffington Post that she deserves her own cover. There’s also some controversy about her cover because she’s the only one with a close up black and white photo. I think it’s beautiful though and apparently she likes it too.
I linked to this lecture in my top 20 Beyonce songs post on Monday but I thought it was worth noting again. So here it is embedded!
Wow. This ended up way longer than the first edition. Not saying that’s a bad thing! Have fun reading/watching.
