Fun Fact: It’s Christmastime, a part of the year filled with cynical cracks at capitalism having its own holiday (also: Black Friday) and lying to little kids about Christian saints paraphrased as immortal pseudo-mythical figures.
Therefore, let’s talk about Love Actually. One of the most memorable scenes from the film was when the audience - both of film and play within said film - finally sees (and more importantly, hears) Sam’s (Thomas Sangster) crush, Joanna (Olivia Olson) blowing away the whole auditorium with her singing. The 11 year-old Olivia was actually so talented that those making the film had to teach her to not be so damn good for the fear of the audience picking up their phones and calling bullshit. Then again, their efforts end up culminating in her taking breaths when she doesn’t need to, somehow apparently taking the audience reaction from “Oh my god there’s no way that girl can sing so well” all the way down to “That’s perfectly believable.”
Nowadays, along with a not-so-often-updated youtube channel, Olivia, now 17 years old, works as a voice actress in two ongoing roles, as Vanessa in Phineas and Ferb (She still works with Thomas, now 21 years old, who voices Ferb), and through that role, she was able to land the part of Marceline in Adventure Time.

My sister (@notcamille) and I decided to tag along with Geo (@gdizzle) chilling our butts off outside waiting for Best Buy to open at midnight. Did not get any special deals on these whatsoever, so after all the money that’s been yanked out of it in the last two weeks, my wallet is silently sobbing in agony. Then again, considering the DVDs were the last/only copies there, might be worth it. Then again, Childish Gambino. Worth it.

Fun Fact: The film industry was initially developed in New Jersey, and for a while, that’s how it would have been. However, monetary interests in mind, alpha-dickwad Thomas Edison and his company “had a stranglehold on the entire cinema industry” by way of holding all the patents and preventing filmmakers from doing anything, so much that a few of them ran away to California and started a few studios like Universal Studios, Warner Bros., 20th Century Fox, Paramount, and MGM. (source) On that note, fuck you, Edison. Anyway.
They’re shooting a film in Newark today.
Just to be clear, I’m an NJIT student, so my campus is in Newark. Because I’m a commuter, I usually take the Light Rail to school. However, due to the film, they closed the Light Rail for today and tomorrow.
I have no idea what exactly they’re shooting scene-wise, but this film is The Dark Knight Rises. Christopher Nolan, Marion Cotillard, Gary Oldman, Michael Caine, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Liam Neeson, Cillian Murphy, Christian Bale, and/or Morgan motherfucking Freeman might very well be in the same exact city I’m in right now.
Just to be clear:
The Dark Knight Rises is shooting in Newark. It’s close enough to directly fuck up my daily schedule. And somehow I think that’s awesome.
If someone’s gonna try and go tomorrow to see if they can sneak a peek at the set, please bring me along.

Fun Fact: In Mean Girls (2004), one of the most popular characters, yet least seen, is Glenn Cocoo. While it’s trivial, some people do wonder who Glenn is. And since it’s trivial, I decided to find out anyways.
A quick search shows that Glenn Cocoo was played by David Reale. Someone out there might recognize him as Kai from the anime Beyblade, or as a minor character in the infamous US adaptation of Skins named…Dave.
And some of you might’ve noticed I’ve spelled it differently. If the IMDB page of the full cast and crew is anything to go by, we’ve been spelling his name wrong all along.
“You know what’s wrong with you, Miss Whoever-you-are? You’re chicken, you’ve got no guts. You’re afraid to stick out your chin and say, “Okay, life’s a fact, people do fall in love, people do belong to each other, because that’s the only chance anybody’s got for real happiness.” You call yourself a free spirit, a “wild thing,” and you’re terrified somebody’s gonna stick you in a cage. Well baby, you’re already in that cage. You built it yourself. And it’s not bounded in the west by Tulip, Texas, or in the east by Somali-land. It’s wherever you go. Because no matter where you run, you just end up running into yourself.”
Happy 50th, Breakfast at Tiffanys. (see more photos here)

They were selling posters in the campus center.
I regret nothing.
Even though there’s nothing to regret. But still.
