Ranking the Marvel Cinematic Universe

It is a peak time to be a Marvel fan right now. Avengers: Age of Ultron is coming close to finally opening. Agent Carter was an awesome miniseries, and Daredevil is blowing up social media. I figured I would countdown all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe properties, including both the television and movie properties. However, this list only includes the actual MCU, not just Marvel characters or teams, which means no X-Men or Spiderman.  Read More Ranking the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Martha Stewart Living According to Taystee & Poussey

Does anyone else miss the dreamiest of dream teams, Taystee & Poussey as much as I do? Ever since Netflix dropped the trailer for season 3 of Orange is the New Black, all I can think about is how great those two are at everything, mostly friendship.

This Week in Human Interest Cuteness

Boy, did I have writer’s block this week! I could not make myself write another thing on the articles I have been working on for a while, so I decided to take a look at some representative dog human-interest stories to see if anything inspired me, and found things that interested me, but not enough for an individual column.

Here are a few of the stories/ads that got my attention, (and a few that friends brought to my attention) and whether they are worth viewing. Read More This Week in Human Interest Cuteness

Recipe Roundup: Thinking Pink

This Roundup is late for a very important date. If this Roundup had been late for its period, it wouldn’t be looking for two blue lines. Oh no. This Roundup would be seeing its midwife for a dating scan. Persephoneers, this Roundup can barely bring itself to admit that it is late for a very important date. Deep breaths. It’s okay. This Roundup missed February 15th. Half-Price Chocolate Day. It — it’s okay. We can get through this together. There was April’s attempt at chocolate celebrations, but nothing quite lives up to the anticipation of February 15th. Those prices. Those chocolates. So clutch your pearls, it’s time for a shotgun Roundup of all things pink. Read More Recipe Roundup: Thinking Pink
