“The Fault In Our Stars” Movie Trailer

Shailene Woodley is killing it. Her star will continue to ascend because she is one of the most natural, gifted young actresses in the game right now. I adore her. I also hope that Ansel Elgort will continue to pick great films to be a part of. While the adaptation of Carrie, which is starred in, was not one of my favorite movies of last year, I saw an extra-special something in him that I think should be explored in more films to come.

It’s time for me to read this book before the movie comes out. I have heard too many good things!

Must See Movie- “That Awkward Moment”

So, I saw That Awkward Moment in all of its comedic glory earlier this week and I must say that I laughed even more than I thought I would. The trailer hooked me at first but now I can officially say that this movie is a must-see. If you need a respite from all of the serious dramas you’re trying to catch up on before The Oscars, go see That Awkward Moment!  Look out for my review on Tinsel and Tine coming soon- the link will be posted!

p.s. Zac Efron, Imogen Poots, and Michael B. Jordan some serious fashion game moments throughout…goodness gracious!

2. It’s frigid outside in many parts of the States and you already paid your cable bill. May as well make the most of it. If you haven’t paid your cable bill yet, well you have no excuse but to cozy up on the couch and continue your delinquent ways into the weekend.

Video of the Day- “Team” by Lorde

“…and everyone’s competing for a love they won’t receive….” Lorde’s music is perfection. This video conjures up images of The Hunger Games, competitive sports, Olympic dreams, and human angst. Plus, this is another song of hers that gets me more revved up than “Royals”.  Great choice for your second single, Lorde and co.!

Visual Amusement For Some, Racist and Misogynistic For Most Others

Study this picture. Don’t look away just yet. Keep looking at it. Groups of you may be enraged, neutral, composed, call up your best friend and talk about this photo and why it makes you weep for humanity…. either way, just know that this picture is not OK. This chair of a Black woman, half naked and submissive for ANYONE to sit on, regardless of race, ethnicity, nationality, sex, or religious affiliation is not OK. I’ve traveled within various countries and have been exposed to many forms of art which have inspired me and made me think about the world differently, and I would love to sit down with Allen Jones, the pop artist who designed this chair, to understand his interest in forniphilia. There is always a reason for art and learning about the origins of any type of art is thrilling and illuminating because it helps us understand ourselves and our world as human beings, misogynists and racists included. Maybe, as a standalone piece, this chair was created with a political purpose for us to question the social constructs that we live by each and every day. Yet, I’m not going to question Garage magazine, Buro 24/7, Miroslava Duma, and Dasha Zhukova about their reasons behind publishing the photo above because the photo speaks for itself and those who thought it was fine for the world to see without the public’s consent. If there was no malice meant behind it, as Duma claims, it’s surely making people see that we still have a lot of work to do to make this planet a better place for us and future generations.
