The Man in the Dark Trench Coat
I sat in the back. I was told that I could observe and so that’s what I did. The woman with red manicured hands to my left gripped her Hermès bag and looked at me through the corner of her eye, she tried to be discrete, but it didn’t work. A moment later she zipped it open and pulled out a compact to powder her nose.
Walt Disney: The Failures of an Early Entrepreneur
Today, when the word "Disney" comes to mind we tend to associate it with children's cartoons, toys, theme parks, and a huge multi-billion dollar international evil conglomerate corporation that wants to take over the world, however, Disney was so much more than that, he was a real person, who had real problems and real struggles throughout his life.
Trolls Go After 'Drag Race UK' Contestant Sister Sister, Fellow Queens Call For An End To Abuse
I've become a huge fan of #RuPaulsDragRaceUK since I started watching Season 2 in January 2021. While I appreciate some queens' drag aesthetic more than others, I have definitely gained respect for what these UK queens have done through what has likely been one of the most difficult times of their lives - living with the COVID-19 pandemic. I am not a creative person in the way these queens are, and to see them just putting everything they can into every challenge and try to elevate what they're doing each week while still adhering to safety protocols and so forth has just continued to impress me.
Three little tales, Four Endings
There was a wet, hacking noise from down the carriage. Jules ducked his head to see around Kim’s shoulder, expecting an everyday subway dweller. Instead, he saw a sharply dressed man, convulsing to the carriage floor, white hair sweat-slicked against his brow.
If The Good Wife, Then Spanish Soaps
I'm a fair-weather consumer of entertainment. I prefer attractive, stylish casts. I like romance, some intrigue, humor and decent writing. A realistic plot matters somewhat, but mostly I just want a happy ending.
So you liked Star Wars? Here's 5 More Awesome Film series to help keep you Entertained in 2021.
So you've just binged all of the Star War's films (guilty) and now you're in silent agony, with nothing new to watch. You might have liked the story and music of the originals, the characters and action of the prequels and the cinematography and acting of the sequels, but the sci-fi elements? Maybe not so much. And that's ok! As a big fan of both Star Wars and Science Fiction, they can seem pretty similar or, at least, hard to tell apart but this surprisingly isn't the case.
For the TV Show Binger
The amount of TV shows available is astonishing. I could open Netflix or Hulu right now and there would be hundreds of options at my fingertips. This is the best part about technology, but also the most daunting.

Should we allow people to be sued over a joke?
Can a joke ever go so far that it leads to a 10-year court battle? Apparently, it can. Back in 2010, Canadian comedian Mike Ward performed a 90-minute stand-up act that included a bit about Canadian celebrities who he believed were "sacred cows" that were considered too rich and powerful to be made fun of. In that bit he roasted Celine Dion, her husband Rene Angelil, and a young singer named Jeremy Gabriel.
If This Then That: Pretty Woman
Every great love story must have relatability, comedy, a tragedy, turmoil, and intense intimacy with the main characters or anyone who is an essential part of the movie. Pretty woman is the ideal love story because it had all of that and more. The story is sort of a Cinderella framed novelty with a twist. The best romances stories also come with challenges that require great sacrifice. The challenges thicken the plot and build excitement this keeps the viewers engaged minimizing the chances of people getting bored or falling asleep. Also a happy ending is the icing on the cake of all romance movies.
