If you’re a Gilly, you’ll already know that the Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Lifetrailer was released today. You’ll not only know it but you’ll have seen it several times and paused it to analyse every 1-second clip for spoilers.
By now you’ve probably noticed the big things like Emily in a t-shirt and jeans, Stars Hollow: The Musical, Lorelai seeing a therapist, Jess’ hair, the random pig running through town, Miss Patty’s dramatic weight loss and Kirk’s beard. Oh and the Gilmore Guys cameo in the Dragonfly dining room. Well, I noticed some other stuff. Unimportant stuff, some might say. But who’s to say what’s important? Come on, I’ll take you on a journey back through the most joyous 2 minutes and 26 seconds we’ve collectively experienced since 2007 (when the last episode aired).
“What’s Snapchat?” “Is Pin-interest like an online cork-board?” “Isn’t Tumblr a type of glass?” Are you sick of trying to explain social media to your mum and dad? Or have you yourself fallen out of touch with the ever-changing world of social media? What IS social media? In a nutshell, it’s a tool people use to create and share content online. What kind of content? Depends what you’re in the mood for. Let’s ‘update’ your tech awareness by ‘zooming in’ on some of the world’s most popular social media apps.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a book like Pride and Prejudice must be in want of an adaptation! It was written over 200 years ago but the adaptations aren’t dying down because it’s JST (just so timeless). There are classic versions like the BBC miniseries and the “Keira Knightley one” and then there are looser adaptations like Bride & Prejudice and The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. Consider yourself a P&P fan? How many of these 12 adaptations have you seen?
Even if you’ve never seen Full House, you probably still know that John Stamos (and John Stamos’ hair) was in it, it launched the careers of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and the theme song had a series of lengthy ‘ahhhhs’. I mean it was on the air from 1987-1995 so you should at least know it existed. Since nostalgia is a thing these days, it’s getting a Netflix sequel series called Fuller House. Like, of course. Also, it’s coming real soon. February 26th to be exact. As a long-time fan, I have to say this – HAVE MERCY! Also, I’ve got demands.
A few months ago we had our first round of Cereal Killers with Peanut Butter Toast Crunch Vs. Cookie Crisp. This time I decided to have a solo cereal party (so basically a weekday breakfast) to try a couple of American cereals – Lucky Charms and Golden Grahams. Did the redheaded leprechaun and his pot of charms sparkle or did the ribbed squares live up to their Golden name? Read all about the battle of the bowl-ge below.

After Greendale’s obnoxious glee club is institutionalised, their instructor Mr. Rad must convince the unwilling study group to be stand ins for the upcoming Christmas pageant.
