Megan Fox, The Enigma, Part 1 of 1.
Welcome back friends, season two, and better than ever. A long 'un with some calm, soothing voice sounds to celebrate the premiere of whatever season I choose to be on. What a life. I have no organization for this podcast, see ya on the flip side. OOHHHHH, I don't go in-depth about the marketing of Jennifer's Body (2009) enough, but my friend Yhara does and incredibly fucking well -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=llQ_OpOl7Qg; this does it a better service than I did and I believe her interview about her wanting to do Jen's Body is referenced. I have seen that video a million times since it's been put uppppp. I called my new mic “smoothing” which is now a new-formed word, “smooth” and “soothing” and I dig it so here I am. new mic, new me. TRIGGER WARNING: I talk about feminism and Megan Fox and Hollywood and sexism and all the terrible things you associate Hollywood with, right? Not really so much all of those in-depth, but in comparison to Megan Fox. For some reason, I swear A LOT in this podcast, more than usual - so beware. I use the f-bomb, which I usually don’t use, I just love Megan damn Fox, okay? I was never a fan of the Olsen Twins so this passed me by in 2001, Holiday in the Sun (2001) is the film I reference as her first. In turn, the Zac Efron show is Down to Earth with Zac Efron on Netttyflix, an incredible show. You truly get another look at who he is as a person and a human being. Honestly: I ALWAYS PRONOUNCE HIATUS WRONG, I have a hard time pronouncing words -- I have a weird tongue from my great-grandma and mom, so I deal with it. I don't realize it until I have edited the podcast and by then I am so lazyyyyy. But I know how it is pronounced, I just forget. Sorrrrrry. I just deal with it, hopefully, you can too. I literally pronounce it incorrectly every day of my life and no one corrects me because they understand my weird tongue... but I have a degree in English I promise lmao. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

The "Cult Classic" Freaks and Geeks (1999-2000)
i pronounce things weirdly, sorry if this upsets you. i mostly do it on purpose because i feel as an english degree-haver it is my duty to always pronounce things incorrectly for the fun of it. i once convinced multiple someones that all animals have a singular version like "cacti." I'm a terrible person... so i say "cancellization" on purpose. i am full aware it is cancellation. I'm just having fun on a podcast, as i don't spend hours or have 1000 dollars worth of fancy equipment. i just have fun with it. you don't need those things either. just have fun with it. not everything needs a whole "set up." enjoy! have fun, be you because you are awesome. i talk about freaks and geeks today, a short one but a good one. ACTUALLY i don't think i swear in this podcast??? do i??? omg what an achievement, i swear literally all the time.

The 2000s: A Teenage Wasteland?
TRIGGER WARNING. Since I mention a few things I want to make sure y'all feel safe. I talk about the topics in both shows which are alluded to mental health, pregnancy, etc. Howeva, two of my faves honestly. I am so excited about publishing/recording this. Had A LOT of fun and yes... my voice still does crack, it gets dry what am I to do about it? I mean, if you know... then you know.

Why Is FRIENDS (1994-2004) A Cult Classic When LIVING SINGLE (1993-1998) Isn’t?
I talk about Living Single and FRIENDS in this episode; been bored in this quarantine so y'all get a good two-dayer. Not much to put here but I said I would, huh? What was it... I said I would put something in the description. AH! The writers of FRIENDS, do I need to? Y'all can Google that yourself, right? Good bc I'm lazy. See y'all when I see y'all. Maybe tomorrow? Maybe next month? Maybe in 2021? --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

Okay, Seriously - What Is Riverdale?
I'm getting back into my groove or something like that. Stay safe, friends. I whine about Riverdale for like fifty minutes because it sucks. Not because the acting is terrible but because the writing is. It's not changing any narrative or adding anything to the TV scene, it's just Riverdale. It exists to be Riverdale. So what makes the show so damn bad? I don't know and I won't even tell you that here, but I ramble and roast it a lot???? So if you're into that then what's good???? DISCLAIMER: Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa wrote 6 episodes of Glee, but didn't create or write the entire series. I didn't specify that and it sounds like he made it, but he didn't so we good now? Fake Doctor, Real Friends with Zach and Donald 124: My Last Day With Bill Lawrence and Christa Miller OR 110: My Nickname with Bill Lawrence. I believe it is 124, but it could be either-or. Fave podcast right now, the only one I listen to -- but more importantly, wonderful inspo for television, culture, and film lovers. Wonderful talk about the creation of Scrubs and scenes. YouTube vids of Riverdale bein'... you know... Riverdale?: Alex Meyers' series on why Riverdale is a HOT MESS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PnIDso3a0XQ&list=PL-l4O2M4FfOuvHlyd6C2Vfm_jCxkF4-18 A misguided young man about the promise of Season 1, Dylan: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T2itphl9khY This one is just comical by Lucas: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-xcOV0Z-hU I don't hate the show, I just don't love it. You get it, right? I think it's made by monkeys in the writing room honestly. OH, and my voice cracks because I'm human and my podcast is raw and real and I don't record 50 times to get it "perfect." I just record it and if I dig it, I dig it and upload it. So mistakes and imperfections are included as well as cussing because I'm a girl and I say fuck, not sorry. If my family ever finds this podcast, you now know I swear on the internet. You're welcome and don't bring it up during the holidays. See y'all next time, maybe I will finally do GET OUT... or BLACULA... or or or CANDYMAN??? Stay tuned, I might compare them all. #BLM. ALSO comic series was "Afterlife With Archie." Solid series tho. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

MIDSOMMAR Was The Best Break Up Movie Of 2019, Easily.
Midway through I remember MIDSOMMAR was based in Sweden. Midway through I also remember I had no script for this podcast. Midway through I continue going with it. Merry quarantine day ??? where I talk about MIDSOMMAR and why it was the best BREAK UP film of 2019??? Was it though??? Now I need to go eat lunch because I'm starving, see you on the flipside of COVID-19. Love y'all. My voice cracks less than other podcasts which is good, I'm finally forming into the monster I am meant to be: a MIDSOMMAR stan. Directed (Written): Ari Aster Produced: Patrik Andersson & Lars Knudsen Starring: Florence Pugh; Jack Reynor William; Jackson Harper; Vilhelm Blomgren; Ellora Torchia; Archie Madekwe; Will Poulter Music: Bobby Krlic Cinematography: Pawel Pogorzelski Edited: Lucian Johnston REFERENCES: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Midsommar_(film) https://www.cinemablend.com/news/2493584/the-best-movies-to-stream-or-rent-if-you-like-midsommar https://www.thesun.co.uk/tvandshowbiz/11317132/midsommar-amazon-prime-brutal-horror/ https://screenrant.com/hereditary-vs-midsommar-ari-aster-comparison/ --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

The Auteur Of David Lynch + Donald Glover (Atlanta & Twin Peaks)
1 thing. On quarantine so I have free time... Why not make my old article I never published into a podcast. I liked the concept and idea and wanted to help make y'all feel cozy with a friend during this trying time in history. See ya on the flip side; stay healthy, stay safe, and wash your damn hands, thanks. Peace! TWIN PEAKS is on Hulu and Netflix I think so you can watch it when you watch ATLANTA. Go forth and binge my friends. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

The Auteur Of Wes Craven's Horror Anthologies
NIGHTMARE ON ELM + SCREAM = Legendary. In a quarantined state, I talk about Wes Craven, Women's History Month, and NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET alongside SCREAM. What do these two franchises have in common? Two badass female main characters and a great auteur director behind them. Let's chat about something spooky and something interesting... BAM! Also you can watch these on Vudu, Hulu, Netflix, and I'm pretty sure somewhere free online. SCREAM is always on streaming, NIGHTMARE is harder to find (I watched it on Vudu). Nonetheless, I hope you guys are staying safe during this lockdown and see ya next time on Today... In Pop Culture. Next time we will have... probably a topic about FRIENDS and LIVING SINGLE. But don't quote me on that, I don't want to watch FRIENDS so i'm procrastinating. ALSO: I say "so" A LOT and you think I will stop? No. FYI: I pronounce things weirdly... often. Auteur and mise-en-scene are pronounced so many different ways and this is how I pronounce it. I tried my best, blame my mother for my accent with phonics. Thank you for listening, love y'all. ALSO, an underrated podcast episode. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
