My workout playlist is filled with some embarrassing nonsense, folks, and I love it. Continue reading
Whether you go old school with the high five or play it cool with a fist bump, I’ve got gifs for you! Continue reading
Every show has one… the token minority character. Tokenism, as we’re all aware, is wildly problematic. Continue reading
Have you ever realized how many musical shows are on television now? Glee, The Voice, American Idol, America’s Got Talent, and even Dancing With the Stars. There is a new one starting with Kelly Clarkson, Duets. Continue reading
Welcome back to another edition where I show my lack of pop culture. Continue reading
Good evening, Persephoneers! Yet again I’m here in my pajamas, though at least this time with good reason, which also happens to be the explanation for why I haven’t been around much lately: I’m not well. In fact, the only one in the Juniper Household not to have been unwell is Juniper Puss. The rest of us, meanwhile, have had horribly horrid colds. Continue reading
Happy Wednesday, my little rays of Internet sunshine! I hope everyone’s week is going as well as can be expected! Today’s lunchtime poll is about music again, because I’ve been digging out my old mix CDs and I found an ancient iTunes back-up with a bunch of songs I thought I’d lost forever.
It’s a New Year, and here are some of the things I would love to see happen in 2012, television-wise. Continue reading
I laughed through this episode of Community the same way I laughed through last year’s “mockumentary” episode: loudly. Somehow I think the fact that a show I liked was being made fun of (last year: Parks & Recreation; this year: Glee) made it that much funnier. Continue reading
I’m going to be honest with you, Persephepeople. I thought I was going to hate this episode, and I ended up really, really liking it. Continue reading
Previously on Glee, Sue tried to destroy the glee club, and Rachel learned a lesson about how to get along with people. Tonight on Glee, Sue tries to destroy the glee club and Rachel learns a lesson about how to get along with people. Saltwater Taffy plays a role. Continue reading
Once again, there is no new Parenthood tonight, which makes me sad. I did catch the last fifteen minutes of Glee, which was kind of amazing, but I’ll leave that review to Selena. Instead, I’m recapping Raising Hope, that quirky comedy that comes on after Glee each week. Continue reading
As much attention as Glee has gotten lately for its portrayal of gay teens on television, I wasn’t so convinced. It’s great that there’s a main character on a TV show for gay and questioning youth (and everyone else) to see. It’s even better, and more encouraging, that the reponse to gay teens in primetime has been largely positive. Maybe the flood gates will open, and we’ll start seeing a more inclusive depiction of sexuality across the board. Continue reading
I was reading an article recently that quoted Ryan Murphy, the creator of Glee. He was discussing the budding relationship between Kurt and Blaine, and stated, “It’s my job as showrunner to keep them apart as long as possible.” Continue reading
Since I know we’ve got a bunch of new readers this week, just wanted to say hi and say this is my 8th installment of recapping My So-Called Life. Check out the tags/archives to catch up on previous recaps, and be aware that I watch this show in 10-minute installments via illegal YouTube clips. Welcome!
This was one of the episodes that stood out the most in my memory from the show’s original run: Sharon’s dad having a heart attack. The recent Glee with Kurt’s dad being hospitalized was instantly reminiscent of this episode to me, minus Emma Pillsbury running down the halls in her perfect preppy little outfit. Continue reading
