WTF, True Detective?

The second season of HBO’s True Detective aired two weeks ago to mixed reviews. Those who hate it are comparing it to the first series. Those who love it are begging people to not compare it to the first series (which is, duh, impossible).

The teaser trailers highlighted the four main characters: Ray Velcoro played by Colin Farrell, Ani Bezzerides played by Rachel McAdams, Frank Semyon played by Vince Vaughn and Paul Woodrugh played by Taylor Kitsch. You spend the first episode thinking you’ll be spending all your time with these four characters, right? Wrong.

Friday Round Up!

I don’t know about you, but it’s been a hard week. Did you know that Mercury has been in retrograde for a month? Thankfully, it subsided so you should be feeling more like yourself. I’m excited for this weekend because I’ll be biking and going to see Jurassic World! Here’s some more stuff to do this weekend…

Did you see that Orange is the New Black was released early? Here’s a nice little round up of the end of last season. You can watch it on Netflix now.

Two of my friends recommended this book to me, so I promptly ordered it.

Anyone watching the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team take on Sweden tonight?

If you live in Indianapolis, why don’t you go to IMAF or Talbott Street Art Fair or Indy Pride?

Florence and the Machine’s new album, How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful is captivating. You can buy it on iTunes.

Anyone reading/watching/doing anything else fun this weekend! Comment below.

Kanye Korner: Happy Birthday, Yeezy!

kanye time

Welcome back to Kanye Korner, where my sister Sarah writes about her favorite rapper/producer/nihilist, Kanye West. 

It’s a special day here at Kanye Corner: Kanye West turns 38 years old today!

In honor of 38 years of Ye gracing us with his presence, here are my birthday wishes (since I am qualified to make them on his behalf).

A baby sister for North. Yes, Kimye is expecting another little one. Logically you might want the new West to be boy since there are already plenty of girls in that family, but imagine the possibilities with another little girl! Her and North could wear little matching outfits and form a musical sister duo when they grow up! Also, boys drool.

A release date for the new album. We’ve gotten a couple of teaser tracks and even a name change, but so far nothing in the way of a release date for SWISH. Could this be another Beyoncé-style surprise drop? If so, will he also throw 17 impeccably choreographed music videos into the mix? Fingers crossed.

A Kimye biopic. Okay, so this one may just be a rumor so far. But it’s been floating around that Kanye and Kim are in talks to make a movie about their lives. Yes, I would pay to see it. Yes, I do hope Kim is played by Sofia Vergara and Kanye plays himself. Make fun all you want!

Happy birthday Kanye! Here’s to another 38 years.
