Double Date with The Muppets
Kermit the Frog detested Tiktok because people do silly things like cooking chicken in cough syrup. The current trend was double dates with strangers. The Jim Henson Company had picked up on this.

If it wasn’t for his dearly beloved Miss Piggy, he would have retired from the show business years ago.

Part of this article was published in my blog at Angelnickirocks.Blogspot.com. I was recently thinking about all of the different places I’ve been, places where I’ve lived or worked or gone to school. It seems to me that I meet the same people everywhere I go.

My Review of "Clueless (1995)"
Clueless (1995) was an instant classic when it came out in 1995. It is iconic and at the time we didn't know how much of an impact it would have with popular culture. To this day we still see current pop culture being influenced by this movie. I get to dive back in to see if this movie stands the test of time.
Review of 'The Darkening'
In this thrilling and epic YA fantasy debut, the only hope for a city trapped in the eye of a cursed storm lies with the daughter of failed revolutionaries and a prince terrified of his throne. Vesper Vale is the daughter of revolutionaries. Failed revolutionaries. When her mother was caught by the queen’s soldiers, they gave her a choice: death by the hangman’s axe, or death by the Storm that surrounds the city and curses anyone it touches. She chose the Storm. And when the queen’s soldiers—led by a paranoid prince—catch up to Vesper’s father after twelve years on the run, Vesper will do whatever it takes to save him from sharing that fate. Even arm herself with her father’s book of dangerous experimental magic. Even infiltrate the prince’s elite squad of soldier-sorcerers. Even cheat her way into his cold heart. But when Vesper learns that there’s more to the story of her mother’s death, she’ll have to make a choice if she wants to save her city: trust the devious prince with her family’s secrets, or follow her mother’s footsteps into the Storm.

Villainess Review: Brianna (It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Murder)
Weeks ago, I went on The Futon Critic (a site I've gone to for a long while regarding info on upcoming Lifetime movies), and saw this title for an upcoming film: It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Murder. I had to do a double take. A Lifetime Christmas thriller film?! Those don't happen. Granted, Lifetime Movie Network does air the typical thrillers while the main network celebrates the holidays with sweet-natured films. But I think this is a first: a Christmas-centered LMN film that is also one of our deliciously wicked thrillers! An absolute miracle!
