Sex and the Shitty (Reviews)

Okay, I would generally just ignore the very existence of Sex and the City 2...but the reviews are sooo bitchily entertaining. For instance, Roger Ebert opens his review with the pronouncement, "Some of these people make my skin crawl." David Edelstein calls it an "epic eyesore." Not to beat a dead Sarah Jessica Parker, but here's a compilation of some of the wittiest reviews.

If there is one positive to be gained from the SATC2 debacle, it's Liza Minelli's cover of Single Ladies. Positive being a relative term, of course.

Not Quite Kung Fu Panda...

Kung fu bear doesn't have quite the same ring, but hey, that's what we've got here. A kung fu bear. And it's awesome.

Fabulous Food Fashion

I can't decide whether I want to wear or eat the creations on display in Fulvio Bonavia's photographs...possibly both. I think the raspberry purse and chocolate cuff links would be delicious together, no?

A Video Tutorial on Pronunciation

Don't get me started on how Prince of Persia doesn't seem to star any actual Persians. Actually, I guess that's it. Um, it doesn't seem to star any actual Persians, even in supporting roles, as far as I can tell. Having made my objections perfectly clear...

Jake Gyllenhaal is indeed hot. And a good actor (see: Brokeback Mountain and Donnie Darko, among others). He's evidently funny, too (see: this video, below).

Btw, I am now further convinced of the excellence of Ben Kingsley and am ashamed to admit I have never seen Gandhi. I will get to it one of these days, Sir Ben. I promise. (As if he cares—he's a freaking knight!)

My apologies for the recent dearth of posts, but, as the late Johnny Cash sang, I'm busted. In addition to this damn cough I can't shake, I had a two-day-long migraine last week. Ugh. Now I'm still headachey, though it's not as bad this week. On top of that, we flew to California for a wedding over the weekend.

In summation: I've been sickly and busy. My posts would all be cranky anyway. You wouldn't like them. Be glad I spared you. Blogging will resume some sometime in the near future.

Superheroes + Fashion + Tim Gunn = Awesome

I thought this video would be amusing for a couple of minutes, but I found it so interesting that I wound up watching part two as well. In both, Tim Gunn and comic book historian/host of the web series Crazy Sexy Geeks Alan Kistler discuss superhero fashion choices, specifically the evolution of certain characters' costumes over the years. I particularly like Tim Gunn's take on the Hulk and poor, skanky Black Canary. Now I'm really tempted to go watch The Wonder Woman Debate and Super Hero Fashion, the latter of led to the more in-depth Tim Gunn videos. Screw it—I'm giving into temptation right now.
