I Started A New Blog!

You may notice that I stopped posting here on the SassChron in late 2011. I spent 2012 posting exclusively on a Bay Area music and film site called Spinning Platters, and then formally launched my new pop culture blog, The Binge, at the beginning of March. It’s a combination of the daily posts I used to do on here with the weekly film reviews and interviews I’d been doing for Spinning Platters. So check it out!

In very exciting news (for me), Holly Hunter will reunite with her The Piano director Jane Campion for a BBC/Sundance Channel miniseries called Top of the Lake, which will also costar Elisabeth Moss (!).
The mini is set in the remote mountains of New Zealand and follows the  disappearance of a five-months pregnant  12-year-old named Tui who was  last seen standing chest-deep in a frozen  lake. Investigating detective  Robin  Griffin (Moss) must lose herself in order to find the missing  girl. During  the investigation, she collides with Matt Mitcham  (Peter Mullan), Tui’s  father, a local drug lord, and G.J (Hunter), a guru at a  local women’s  camp. The case testes Robin’s limits and sends her on a  journey of self-discovery.

Diablo Cody interviews Joel McHale for her Red Band Trailer series.

We’re having a boy! We’re so happy that Axel gets to have a brother so close in age. And that I get to add another set of balls to my very, very male world. We found out I was pregnant during my mom’s birthday weekend in Ojai. I was instantly so proud of this baby for already knowing how to make someone else’s special day all about him.
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘s Kaitlin Olson to People, on being pregnant with her second baby, another boy, with husband Rob McElhenney.

Hearing my reaction to this, my neighbors must think I’m either dying or cumming. THE TRUTH IS I AM DOING BOTH.

This equally hilarious and mesmerizing GIF of Laura Kirkpatrick from America’s Next Top Model: All Stars comes, of course, from Rich Juzwiak's recaps on fourfour.
