Week That Was (Nov 18 – Nov 24)

Phewwww. What a week. Some bombs were dropped and they dropped hard – including but not limited to; more shocking reveals in the constant dismantling of Hollywood’s toxic systemic abuse, some old popular favourites proving to be incredibly problematic, oh yeah, and Justice League landed at the box office ahahahaha hahaha haha. I crack myself up. Let’s launch in shall we? One of the biggest icky stories of the week was John Lasseter taking a 6-month “leave of absence” from Pixar Studios (which he co-founded and where he is incredibly powerful). He…

Unconscious Coupling

If you’re wondering what THAT that means you’d be right on the money TBH. As in, you’d be right not to know what on earth I’m talking about. As popularised by Gwyneth Goopy Goop Paltrow over at Goop many moons ago (three earth years, not sure how many actual moons ago, I bet Goopy would know though), the term “conscious uncoupling” referred to getting divorced and not (outwardly) hating each other’s guts and hoping your ex-spouse would die a violent tragic death. I KNOW, SOUNDS FAKE. FAKE…

Week That Was (Oct 28 – Nov 3)

Another week, another slew of gross men in Hollywood who have been revealed as abusers. Really keen for the focus to eventually shift onto literally every other industry of all time as well as this is NOT unique to LaLa Land. Also Halloween happened and there mayyyy have been some celeb romantic reconciliations coz…’tis the season I guess? The holiday season? Where people remember that they love each other and forget all the awful things about the other person that made them end their relationship. SEEMS HEALTHY. Dustin Hoffman disappointed a loooooot of people when news hit…

Week That Was (Sept 30 – Oct 6)

Full disclosure – I totally forgot about wrapping up the week this week. When I wracked my brain to update y’all on the big pop culture news that happened, I realised no big pop culture news happened. A tragedy happened, and America still has guns. I guessed they missed the memo that banning guns tends to end mass shootings and murder. Then again, if Sandy Hook didn’t change anything in the US, nothing will. But I’m just here for the celebs. Eh. But really, we all need our bright shining lights of joy to…

The Week That Was (Sept 1 – Sept 7)

Sooooo I’ve kind of dropped the ball on these weekly recaps haven’t I? My bad. I understand that you may have no idea what’s happened in the world of pop culture over the last few weeks (if ONLY you could find this info out elsewhere…like being bombarded with it from all angles at all times and from all devices…) so I’m here to make it right. Today I present to you a mammoth wrap-up of pretty much anything I missed recently with some very colourful language thrown in…

The Week That Was (July 15 – 21)

How to wrap up this week of pop culture gossip? Put it this way, it was a little gross, a little offensive, and overall…pretty sad. Let’s do this. Game of Thrones came back, and in the land Down Under, it was a disaster. There were tech glitches that left people unable to watch the premiere. In the year 2017. That was a thing that happened. But I didn’t care because I stopped watching two episodes before Season 6 ended. I know, I know. Apparently eeeeeverything happens right after that and yet I still have…

The Week That Was (July 1-7)

Gossip enthusiast? Article skimmer? Pop culture casual dater (you dip in every now and then but don’t get too ‘deep’)? If you ever find yourself struggling for water-cooler chat while the young people around you bemuse you when they say names you can’t even decipher and you actively seek out TV spoilers without bothering to watch the latest hyped series (that the entire fucking world is seemingly watching simultaneously), so you can have a fucking sound-byte to contribute to awkward social situations then BOY, do I have an update for you! Before…

Beybies

The world today feels…different somehow. You can sense it right? There’s a more vibrant glow in the light. The crisp air is crisper and fresher than any other day. It’s like everything is clearer, more vivid, brighter somehow. And above all, there’s an overwhelming joyful vibe permeating all our collective senses. And on Twitter. It’s happening. Or, it has happened. And They’re here. Or, nearly here. Our Queen is on the cusp of bringing two more blessed lives into this world and we are all the more better…

100 Observations I Have Made In The Last 12ish Months

You guys, this is my ONE HUNDREDTH POST on aphroisms and a LOT has happened in the almost-12 months since I started the blog. I mainly mean in the world of pop culture/the world in general, but I’d like to think there was also some personal growth and self-awareness thrown in. Come with me on the journey. I wrote 99 blogs. Survivor and Real Housewives epitomise everything great about reality TV and it seems like you guys agree. If recapping shows could be a full-time job, I would do it in a heartbeat even…

Behold, The Queen

I had a whole other post written, recapped as I watched The Grammys, but then Album Of The Year was announced and I realised, again, that it was a load of fucking bullshit and they don’t deserve any words. Instead, I want to revisit every moment of Her glory today. And for the record, others have said and will continue to say it better than I ever could, so. Finally, no hate to Adele. In fact, I called it months ago, that she would give up AOTY if she won it over Bey. Watch her do just that…
