movie monday: the avengers which is actually mostly me babbling and also links to pandora radio stations i made for each character :3
i wrote a really intense open letter to amc theatres.
so i haven’t been linking them here, but i have been writing/trying to get caught up on the 31 days of festive-ass flicks and you can find all of the ones i’ve posted so far right here. this gif is my favorite thing i’ve made so far in the process.
love actually features three separate incidences of holiday toplessness and though they’re enjoyable! they are not my primary reason for loving this one
brushing my hair makes me SO UNHAPPY. like, i start and give up at least three times before i get through it all. hate it hate it hate it. i miss when my hair was short enough that i didn’t have to brush it all.
also, i got behind on writing the festive-ass flicks write-ups and i am suffering for it ugh. here is a post about how nothing like the holidays is nothing like a holiday movie.
you guys, if you like war and death and brotherly angst and breasts mixed in with your christmas I HAVE GOT THE MOVIE FOR YOU. also, i now want to take every movie scene where someone sings operatically and dub over it with ke$sha. (also, i liked making that top picture so much that i went back and made a second, more ~official~ one to edit into the blog loooool.)
my five favorite holiday movies! — i am going to revisit my favorites once the 31 days of festive-ass flicks are done with and see if they hold on to their spots!
and yes i do all of my best work at 430 in the morning, DO YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THAT?!
i wrote a little dumb angry thing about how blogging matters because i got REAL MAD at a professor i used to have way after the fact. well, i got re-mad i guess.
also i talk about the crying recipe i posted this morning whereby revisiting, i came up with the brilliant, “you can’t spell piano without PAIN” which i’m going to replay forever.
also this only has an awkward picture attached to it because it’s the first day i’ve worn my favorite sweater this cold season and i looooooooove it and wanted to make sure you see that fine sleeve detail. i’ve had it since i was like a sophomore in high school and it is a men’s medium that i inherited from a friend that lived with us, so i take it as proof that you should TRY EVERYTHING even if fitting into it seems impossible.
so, one week from friday (that would be the day after thanksgiving here in the u s of a) i will be starting this project! 31 days of festive-ass flicks.
i’m watching one holiday movie a day and writing about them all the way through christmas day. partly because i love holiday movies, partly because i needed some direction in my life, and partly because i want to punish myself.
i’ll be doing it at ashrussell.com (which you should follow with your blog reader of choice!) but i will make sure to link each post here like i do when i make regular posts.
this is the projected calendar of movie watching (click to embiggen massively), though it is subject to change at any second pending availability/willingness of additional audience members. BE EXCITED FOR ME BECAUSE I AM SO EXCITED YAY!
also, if you are interested in punishing yourself and watching along or joining in for viewing of a movie of choice, i am down! i love watching parties via gchat or the chat engine of current popularity. I AM HIP. I AM DOWN. email me! ask me! whatev.

whine whine, i’ve developed allergies as an adult and i wrote a whole blog about it, whine whine whiiiiiiiiine
i wrote a blog about how i am having a complicated time right now. ohhhhhhhhh shit got real with real feelings and stuff. but the main point of it is that i didn’t overpluck my eyebrows for like the first time in my whole life. not really, but kind of.
