Thankful

Happy Thanksgiving

I’m off for a while to be with the family. If you’re celebrating Thanksgiving, too, I hope you have a wonderful holiday.

Rebeccapurple + Spirit Day

I’ve always used purple on my blog in honor of Eric Meyers’ daughter Rebecca, who died at age 6. Nobody knew that but me, but I’m aware of it each time I open my blog.

But today, the color purple represents Spirit Day, a day GLAAD created to show support for LGBTQ youth. On this day, I want to share my love and respect for LGBTQ youth. Nobody deserves to be bullied.

Just Thinkin’ Here

Three shows I love premier this weekend with new seasons. In the past, I’ve written recaps of Orphan Black. I’ve written several series level posts about each season of Orange is the New Black, but no recaps. In season 1 of Wynonna Earp I only commented (very wrongly) about what I thought was going on in the first episode.

I’m thinking I want to continue in the same way with Orphan Black and Orange is the New Black. I’m also thinking I want to write more about Wynonna Earp but I don’t want to do recaps.

What that means in terms of Wynonna Earp isn’t clear to me yet.

Do you as readers have any input on these plans for the next few weeks of my blogging efforts?

A #HappyValleyTV hashtag Would be Welcome: What do you Think?

I use the hashtag #HappyValley on Twitter to see what people are saying about Happy Valley, the master work from Sally Wainwright.

Every time I do, the Twitter timeline is full of conversation about real places called Happy Valley. You have to sift through all that to find tweets about the TV show Happy Valley.

Why don’t we all agree to change the hashtag? #HappyValleyTV would work, wouldn’t it? Only two more characters, yet distinct from the tweets about actual places. We just have to publicize the idea enough that all the Happy Valley fans pick up on it.

Do you like the idea? Will you help spread the word if you do?

Watch This: Trailer for Jackie

When it happened back in 1963, it was all about LBJ and Lee Harvey Oswald and John John’s salute at the funeral. Jackie was just there, looking sad and beautiful, an accessory. The new biopic Jackie with Natalie Portman playing Jacqueline Kennedy is out to fill in the gaps in the story. Continue reading “Watch This: Trailer for Jackie”

Shh. Don’t disturb

Sorry, I can’t be reached today. I’m binge watching season 4 of Wentworth on Netflix.
