Film Friday: Buffalo 66′

I’m really excited about this new column! Every week I’m featuring one of my favorite films here that I’d recommend for you to watch. This week it’s Vincent Gallo’s “Buffalo 66′”, a twisted Stockholm syndrome type of love story. There are so many things I love about this movie: the fact that it has some of my favorite King Crimson songs in it (watch the scene with Moonchild here),  Christina Ricci is amazing to watch, each shot is so well constructed, and that it’s about growing as a person even when that person is a total asshole. You can stream it on Hulu and Amazon Prime right now, or rent/buy it on Amazon here.

Film Friday: But I’m A Cheerleader

I’m starting a new column to share some of my favorite older movies! First off is But I’m a Cheerleader  It’s about a high school cheerleader whose parents send her to a conversion therapy camp to “cure her lesbianism.”  Besides being hilarious and ridiculous, the set on this movie is amazing. I mean, the bathroom wall is made of daisies. It’s this magical mix of colorful Barbie suburbia and so over the top. Such a colorful movie! Did I mention Natasha Lyonne and Rupaul are in it? It’s currently streaming on Amazon Prime if you want to watch!


In keeping up with goals I’m reading as many books as I can get my hands on. Though the classics hold my heart, I’m braving the waters of modern literature and forcing myself to take a dip. And wow, there’s a handful of beautiful, fresh writing out there released this year. Here is my current list. What books are on your radar? 1. The Goldfinch | 2. The Luminaries | 3. The Two Hotel Francforts | 4. Tomorrow There Will Be Apricots | 5. The Lowland
