Random thoughts: Pretty In Pink, Castle Rock and more

Leave a comment

Yeah, so, it’s Friday, so here’s some random stuff for you, my dear readers.

Margo D. from Book vs. Movie, The Best Neighbors Podcast, Not Fade Away and Fit Bottom Girls came on Dorking Out for another installment of “Sonia and Margo Destroy Your Childhood.” This time we talk about “Pretty In Pink.” It’s a super fun one, and you should listen.

I don’t want to repeat everything I said in this podcast, but I do want to mention that my initial “She picks the wrong guy at the end” feeling has changed. Also, the really sad part of this movie is Annie Potts’ character changing her amazing style to “normal” for a guy, and we’re supposed to be happy about it. As someone who has embraced her Toddler-Grandma Style in her 40s, I find this offensive.

Oh, and I rewatched “Some Kind Of Wonderful” in preparation for this episode, and I think it’s the smarter “Pretty In Pink.”

But wait, there’s more: There’s also a really good episode with Smith about Spike Lee’s “BlacKkKlansman.” I think this movie is great, and you should definitely see it.

Over at Old Movies, New Beer, my mighty, mighty good man David and I talk about “Yellow Submarine” and “Fantastic Planet,” while drinking Ten Fidy from Oskar Blues Brewery. I truly think it’s one of our best episodes.

I still haven’t watched the second season of “The Handmaid’s Tale.” With everything that’s going on in this country, I just can’t bring myself to watch it. I’m starting to feel like it’s a documentary. However, I have started watching “Castle Rock,” and I’m into it. It’s just the right amount of creepy. I’m not a Stephen King super fan. I’ve seen the movies, but I’ve never read the books, and I still enjoy the show and understand what’s going on. I suspect that King fans are enjoying the show on an entirely different level.

On another note, I discovered that Dole Whip is vegan! I’m ridiculously happy about this.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, go to baseball games, kick breast cancer's ass, explore with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

Leave a comment, you guys. It's fun!
