Midsomer Murders Drinking Game

Ah, the weekend. You know there’s nothing you want to do more than curl up on the couch with some wine (or a few pints of bitter) and binge shows on Netflix. And one of the best shows for binging has to be Midsomer Murders. With nearly 20 years’ worth of feature film-length episodes, Midsomer Murders offers hours upon… Continue reading Midsomer Murders Drinking Game

Vodka, Puke, and A Drunk in A Tub

Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels came out on video when I was 21. I remember it because I had just moved out of my parents’ house into a duplex with my first roommates, Lauren and Tina*.

But maybe everyone isn’t like me. Anyone who participated in the making of our 10th… Continue reading Hyperdrive

Clichés are funny, but they’re also kind of… Continue reading Girl Music is from Jupiter

I Love this Movie: Seven Psychopaths

This movie is like Martin McDonagh scooped a bunch of stuff out of my head and made it into the most entertaining thing just for me. It’s the greatest thing since—not sliced bread, because I think sliced bread is kind of overrated; I mean, how lazy are people?—could it be the greatest thing since cheese?… Continue reading I Love this Movie: Seven Psychopaths
