Netflix 5: Lifetime Movies for Your Lazy Saturday

My love of the LMN genre is well documented on this site. There’s nothing like turning your brain down to 1 and watching a parade of marginally pretty people do really dumb things, or formerly famous actors tackle lurid true crime tales while you lump around on the couch. It’s easy. It’s comforting. It goes well with a glass of white wine and some Twizzlers. Read More Netflix 5: Lifetime Movies for Your Lazy Saturday

This Week in Misogyny Isn’t a Grave Threat to Fraternities

Happy Friday, ladyblogland! This week we’ll talk about two new campaigns to bring feminism to the masses, a truly absurd amount of terribleness, and a math lesson from John Oliver. (As usual, trigger warnings for just about everything apply.) Read More This Week in Misogyny Isn’t a Grave Threat to Fraternities

New Show Recap: Project Runway All Stars, 3.10, “For the Tacky Bondage Businesswoman in You”

Last night, the world crowned the all-starriest designer to ever Project Runway All Stars. Well, except for the last all-starriest designer. Or the one before that. But it was still very exciting.

New Show Recap: Project Runway All Stars, 3.09, “Milly, but Hopefully Not Vanilli”

It has been weeks, Persephoneers, weeks since I mocked anyone from the teevee. Well, mocked them on the Internet. About sewing. Did you don neoprene or put some half-ass cutouts in a tee shirt because you missed Project Runway All Stars? Personally, I’m wearing Mondo as a cape right now.

New Show Recap: Project Runway All Stars, 3.07, “I Now Pronounce You QVC”

On this week’s episode of Project Runway All Stars, the designers were whisked away to an exotic locale to design! They flew to Pennsylvania to see the studios of QVC. (For the purposes of this post, you should lower your expectations of the word “exotic.”)

New Show Recap: Project Runway All Stars, 3.06, “See This Hat? ‘Twas My Cat”

I hope you had a happy turkey day, Persephoneers! Did you miss Project Runway All Stars? Did you swaddle yourself in an old bed sheet, some coffee grounds, shoes from the QVC (TM) Accessory (TM) Wall (TM), and a sense of unearned entitlement to remind you of the good old episodes? I know I did. FYI, coffee grounds are definitely an above the waist fashion accessory.

New Show Recap: Project Runway All Stars, 3.05, “Bonnie and Clod”

Sigh. Tacky Jeffrey is still with us on Project Runway All Stars, kittens. I look forward to this week’s tasteless offering from him, as well as his bullshit explanation of why we should all take his wretched artistic expressions seriously. Jeez — it’s like junior college art class all over again, except the stank of patchouli isn’t burning my nostrils.
