Vanity Fair tries to get Matthew Weiner to talk the final season of Mad Men but wisely settles for more fertile ground since you know he won't do that! 

World of Wonder I subscribe to everything they're saying about the new Flash costume on Arrow. I have tried to watch that show so many times but i just think it's terrible and so personality free 
Screen Crush another look at the costume and in action. It does not look aerodynamic to me -- way looser fit than most superhero costume and shouldn't it be more like a swimmer's outfit to enhance speed? So who knows what Colleen Atwood was thinking

In Contention Guy Lodge reports on how Brad Pitt almost starred in Under the Skin but I can't read this because I'm keeping myself as virginal on the film as possible. I want to be surprised

Today's Must Read
Jezebel's funny thinkpiece "A Grown Woman's Guide to Responsible Celebrity Worship" which examines the problem of the "It" girl narrative, the recent Oscar media Jennifer vs. Lupita situation, celebrity backlashes (almost always towards women... the men actually have to EARN backlash), and self-identification. It's pretty great. The piece also references this amazing article "Lupita Nyong'o Doesn't Need Your Permission to Be Beautiful" which is also a very good read.

Laura San Giacomo was gold in Pretty Woman... hope they keep her part in the musical!

Nathan, thanks for that glorious Leo bawling montage! Dude can bawl with the best of em. Leo's Tears should be sold at Walgreen's--maybe they have medicinal and even miraculous properties, like Oprah's Tears.

Oh, poor Flash. Why is he running in leather? That's got to be really uncomfortable, especially at supersonic speeds.

Anne Marie, take it from me. There's nothing worse than the smell of burning leather. All I can say is, have that case of Febreeze ready.

Love Arrow - personality free? that's craziness!!! :) - but yes, the Flash costume looks terrible, and while I found Gaston mostly adorable in his two parter, it did not in any way persuade me that a series based around him would be worth watching. I'll probably check it out because I check at least one episode of anything superhero/fantasy related out, but I'm not optimistic.

brookesboy - not to mention the chafing!

That Flash costume looks cheap and horrible and Nathaniel I do agree with you about "Arrow".

March 13, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterJaragon

Anne Marie, can't tell you how much I've spent on Jergens. JK!
