Some Kind of Wonderful

“It is not about whether the hero will get the girl. It is about whether the hero should get the girl, and when was the last time you saw a movie that even knew that could be the question?” — Roger Ebert

I have A LOT of feelings about Some Kind of Wonderful, and have probably seen the movie and read the novelization at least 100 times combined. I’m so thrilled that I got to discuss why I love it so much with Helen and Valerie of the Falling in Love Montage podcast.

Jason Voorhees did not have a Train Obsession

I was SHOCKED to find this out when I guested on the Kill By Kill podcast this week. Surprising no one, I completely misunderstood a key point of the Friday the 13th franchise but I still stand by my assumption as a reasonable one.

In addition to my ridiculousness, hosts Patrick Hamilton and Gena Radcliffe and I discuss the why everyone in the 80s was obsessed with their friends’ virginity, the improbability of shower sex, and how to #GetBunked. Plus, we get to feminine gaze the hell out of Patrick which is a fun time for all!

The Songs That Saved My Life

I was so thrilled to be on “The Songs that Saved Your Life,” a podcast about the 3 songs that had the biggest impact on you when you were 15 years old. This is basically my origin story of how 120 Minutes changed my life and introduced me to Camper Van Beethoven, The Stone Roses and Nine Inch Nails, all of which had a profound effect on me.

I loved this discussion and have thought about it a lot ever since. In addition to talking about how NIN gave so many girls a cathartic outlet for their anger and why Camper Van Beethoven changed the way I thought about longing, I tell my utterly dorky story about Siouxsie and the Banshees at the first Lollapalooza. AND you’ll learn about my long lasting love for much I love mix tapes/cds. (Please, please make me a mix cd!)
