Selfish Love. Is There Any Other Kind?

Loving this new Jessie Ware video that I caught wind of on Perez Hilton. J'adore the hair, clothes and Slim Aarons-esque backdrop. Where’s my Bain de Soleil? 

By the way, disturbing imagery is having a moment and rightly so. The brutality of man and all that.

“If Only”

I’ve said it before, but The Crown makes Downton Abbey look like Downton Shabby. The preview of season two of The Crown has officially brought me back to life. It isn’t happening until December 8th on Netflix, but maybe if I take a really long nap (one of my nicknames is Hibernatia)...

I spy exotic locales, a sassy Vanessa Kirby as Princess Margaret, a dreamy Mathew Goode, Dexter (what’s he doing there), a hirsute Prince Phillip, and a jealous Queen who is fed up. “If only.” Indeed. 

Your welcs.

Corky St. Clair Is Back!

Lately, I’ve been wondering what’s missing in my life, and I concluded that I have a Corky St. Clair-sized hole in my heart that can now be filled because Christopher Guest is reprising his Waiting For Guffman role as the fabulous CSC. The new mockumentary Mascots has all the usual suspects: Parker Posey, Fred Willard Jane Lynch, Ed Begley Jr., Jennifer Coolidge, Michael Hitchcock, and Bob Balaban. Check out the fun trailer. Mascots is coming To Netflix October 13th.

Summer Sun Playlist On Spotify

“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.” - F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Now go put on some inappropriately short shorts and ride the boogie.

The Night Manager Tonight

The Night Manager airs tonight at 10 on AMC. Be there and behold the beautiful blue eyes of Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Laurie, and Elizabeth Debicki. As a spy story aficionado, this six episode John le Carre adaptation looks promising, and more importantly Elizabeth's hair and wardrobe are super chic.

MAC's New Holiday Collection Unveiled!

MAC's New Heirloom Mix Collection.

It's that special time of year when MAC unveils their holiday collection. You never know what you're going to get. Will it be futuristic (remember the Space Odyssey-esque collection), traditional (the tartan collection) or upscale French prostitute circa 1950. This year's collection is called Heirloom Mix. With lots of sparkling cameos, it's very ghost glamour or Miss Havisham after things went south. November 6th is when the lip gloss, nail polish, and pigment sets become available which is when I strike.

Soon To Be Trending: The Roosevelts

The Roosevelts: An Intimate History, the new Ken Burns project, is coming to PBS Sunday night at 8. I'm so there.  

"THE ROOSEVELTS: AN INTIMATE HISTORY chronicles the lives of Theodore, Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, three members of the most prominent and influential family in American politics. It is the first time in a major documentary television series that their individual stories have been interwoven into a single narrative.  This seven-part, fourteen hour film follows the Roosevelts for more than a century, from Theodore’s birth in 1858 to Eleanor’s death in 1962. Over the course of those years, Theodore would become the 26th President of the United States and his beloved niece, Eleanor, would marry his fifth cousin, Franklin, who became the 32nd President of the United States. Together, these three individuals not only redefined the relationship Americans had with their government and with each other, but also redefined the role of the United States within the wider world. The series encompasses the history the Roosevelts helped to shape: the creation of National Parks, the digging of the Panama Canal, the passage of innovative New Deal programs, the defeat of Hitler, and the postwar struggles for civil rights at home and human rights abroad. It is also an intimate human story about love, betrayal, family loyalty, personal courage and the conquest of fear."- PBS

Caipirinha Time!

I blogged about this back in 2011 but what with the World Cup and all…here she is. 

I'm crazy about Caipirinhas, Brazil's national cocktail. Muddling limes to make a Caipirinha is as much cooking as I do, but it's so worth it. Click here for the recipe. My friends got me this bottle of Cachaca (a liquor made from distilled sugarcane) to make the delicious drink. I love the bottle so much I don't want to drink it, but I also love Caipirinhas. What to do?


Post Snark: Let the drinker beware. Caipirinhas are pretty strong and it's so easy to drink them and drink them and drink them. If I was a gnat, I would dive into a pitcher of Caips and drink my way to the bottom. What a way to go.

I Want Carsickness

Carsick: John Waters Hitchhikes 
Across America ($15.60) Amazon
Count me in on this one. A John Waters read does not disappoint.  
"John Waters is putting his life on the line. Armed with wit, a pencil-thin mustache, and a cardboard sign that reads “I’m Not Psycho,” he hitchhikes across America from Baltimore to San Francisco, braving lonely roads and treacherous drivers. But who should we be more worried about, the delicate film director with genteel manners or the unsuspecting travelers transporting the Pope of Trash? 
Before he leaves for this bizarre adventure, Waters fantasizes about the best and worst possible scenarios: a friendly drug dealer hands over piles of cash to finance films with no questions asked, a demolition-derby driver makes a filthy sexual request in the middle of a race, a gun-toting drunk terrorizes and holds him hostage, and a Kansas vice squad entraps and throws him in jail. So what really happens when this cult legend sticks out his thumb and faces the open road? His real-life rides include a gentle eighty-one-year-old farmer who is convinced Waters is a hobo, an indie band on tour, and the perverse filmmaker’s unexpected hero: a young, sandy-haired Republican in a Corvette. 
Laced with subversive humor and warm intelligence, Carsick is an unforgettable vacation with a wickedly funny companion—and a celebration of America’s weird, astonishing, and generous citizenry." Amazon
