Babel-icious

++I thoroughly loved Tracee Ellis Ross' appearance on Ellen yesterday. She is darn great. Who admits to being openly joyful? Those of us who harbor such feelings often keep it to ourselves because the angry world will destroy you if they know you are happy.

++I finally got around to seeing the trailer for High-Rise which I didn't know anything about until my husband started watching The Night Manager last night, starring like, 3 of my fave thespians.

I've been so out of it! Gotta stop watching old Ace of Base videos and get on the stick.

Anyway I ended up at this trailer because of my Hids, naturally. And heyy what about this trailer? Director Wheatley is going for it. He is not only on the stick, he's broken it and maybe the head gasket. (Ooh, pricey to fix that.)

It feels brazen in the vein of Clockwork Orange/12 Monkeys (and For any olds out there..Gattaca/ Poseiden Adventure/Towering Inferno). My concern is that it might be too much sources sauce in the spaghetti? I'll still check it out. Poor Peggy Olsen, still stuck in a building striving for something better!

++Everyone's hopin and wishin that the election will be done soon but when else will we all get to keep saying Reince Preibus? (I don't know how to say Reince Preibus.)

++Congrats to Team Umizoomi on their newfound success!

Tut's Hub

Steamy
++Trying to remember the name of that site several years back that would allow you to have just one part of a picture move. It was kinda bitchin. I mean, what good is having read the whole Internet if you can't revisit where you have been?

++Hm, a lil dicey to have the Goddess Sekhmet rule over your spicy-food-servin' restaurant. She whose name means "Lady of the Silent Roar Within and One Before Whom Evil Trembles."

 ++Sofia Carson is not to be confused with Sofia Reyes who I wrote about on the 13th. Keep yer pop tarts straight!

++I've prob mentioned this before but the sexual tension between Jerome and his co-pitchlady in these commercials is palpable. Can't he see the love in her eyes?? Surrounded by all that comfortable furniture with its forgiving leather. C'mon!

++Shigeru's page is such a mix of mayhem and enforcement.

++Reviews won't help you figure out whether or not to pick up this one, Bub. #bub

++Gonna do a repeat of this Stromae song despite the fact that it's not one of the ones I'll keep playing on repeat. This isn't a bad thing it's just that some songs are meant to be admired and perhaps saved for another day or a different mood. Even prettier raw, without studio effects or busy video. Anyway, what I guess I'm trying to say is that for some reason this song makes an impression on me.

++Old Familiar Places: Welp, I guess I'll be seeing the Mr. Krabs meme even in places where it doesn't exist, shruggie.

++How is it that I understand absolutely everything these theorists are spittin but could not make sense of the plot of Interstellar? Someone tell NdGT that there's no mystery to the Universe. It's Matthew McConaughey under the chess board moving all the cosmic pieces.

 

++Kali Uchis: Guess I'm on a populist kick this week. (Vince Staples will never not sound like a country western name to me.)(Hey, it was either that observation or the bon mot that with her name she should do karaoke with Karreuche.)

++Journos like to label a variety of concepts as Trojan Horses, apparently.

Wishing Well

++Kyokes (no one says that) servin' up an early taste of summer.

++That's a tough case of da varicose veins there, girl.

++Why do companies assume we all like the smell of lavender? All the time? #lavenderlobby

Rock You Like A Baby

++The sea salt isn't organic? Well then forget it. Also, maybe just using the word organic once would save ink.

++The meta part is that now Mike Posner *will* be stuck singing that sad song on that sad stage.

++Read one of Sofia Vergara's tweets for the first time in her voice with her accent. Hoping others have this condition, too?

++Speaking of accents, this song becomes more entertaining if you sing along with the chorus like a Shakespearean actor with purple velvet leggings. Chalice in one hand and turkey leg hanging out of mouth optional.

Quickies

++Which is the more annoying day on the inturnurtz: April Fools or 4/20? April is kind of a goofy month altogether.

++All these years I thought it was Frankie Valli singing this entire song when it was really the feathery banged dude on drums.

++Really into rose gold these days which was a big thing with Hawaiians I knew in the 90s. Beautiful stuff they had. Anyway, adding to the list of strange things I inexplicably covet these days: hubcaps, pool inflatables and now rose gold.

++This is likely the zaniest of Mark Hoppus' theories yet. Merkel is a Touareg woman for sure.
