1. Behind the Candleabra
Ever since I saw the preview stills from this HBO Liberace biopic a few months back, I was excited. C'mon! How does this not just look incredible?
So much glitter! So much opulence! So much Matt Damon being pretty much molested by Michael Douglass, who calls him "Baby Boy" and wants to adopt him! [Tangent: So weird...but strangely enough, now I want to read Liberace's biography!] The movie was so much better than I could have imagined...and I saw these two startling visuals, which I can NEVER unsee.
|yeah that's Rob Lowe.|
|winning look, damon!|
You probably may have guessed by the fact that my iPhone screen is smashed and that my MacBook Pro consistently has a mustard/chocolate stain on it that I am not good at having nice things. Therefore they need all the help they can get in the "being cute" department.
Several months ago, I bought a colorful swirly skin on etsy for my MacBook Pro [Tangent: Mostly to hide the deep scratches that I got 2 weeks after getting it!], but it's getting raggedy, so I am thinking of ripping it off and starting from the core. I've been really inspired by Keycals, which I have seen online. I have this visual of getting a woodgrain skin and then getting adorable keycals from kidecals.com. [Tangent: Is it sad that I am getting so ecited about putting stickers on my consumer electronics? Probrably!] These are my favorites:

3. Go Bayside Podcast!
For the last year, I have gotten pretty podcast obsessed.[Tangent: Mostly Doug Loves Movies, Who Charted? How Did this Get Made? Comedy Bang Bang, Rhonna and Beverly are my mainstays.], so when my ginger informed me the other day about a Saved By the Bell podcast, I was immediately onboard. OK- I was more than onboard....I was 6 episodes in within 24 hours.
The Podcast is called "Go Bayside" and the premise is basically that commedianne April Richardson invites her funny friends over to her apartment to watch a SBTB episode and then discuss it for 30 minutes to an hour for our listening pleasure. I realize that if you are not butt crazy for everything Morris/Kapowski that this might sound intolerable, but to me....I could listen for multiple hours. Like I feel like I have been waiting my entire adult life to hear people dissect this:
Suddenly, I have the urge to Slater up a chair and rewatch all of them on Netflix [Tangent: As if I don't have them all mentally secure.] just because I didn't realize that the sodas at The Max never have ice in them! This is the minutiae I need to delve into. To check it out click here.
4. This Video.
How amazing is that?!?!?! [Tangent: I wish I had that gig...editting news anchors speech into Snoop songs! Oooh ooooh! Can I manipulate Connie Chungs speech into Ladi Dadi? Wait, is Connie Chung still a thing?] I really have no excuse for being so late to the party on Jimmy Fallon. Maybe it's because I've always been TEAM COCO and was a little wary of anyone taking over his time slot, but damned if he doesn't have the funniest bits. I'm grossly aware that most of you knew this eons ago, but I am just coming to realize it in the last few months.
What are your current obsessions? Trust, I can always make room for more.
