In collaboration with Sammy Sunshine, I bring you our first He Said, She Said movie review. Watch us volley this new and controversial superhero flick back and forth.
out of 5 stars
(we actually caught this opening night, but I just got this up)
Watch the entire video for our full thoughts. I transcribed a few good bits below.
(on the nightmares)
“too many nightmare scenes”~Sammy Sunshine
“He made a really good point…if they hadn’t told you Wonder Woman was gonna be in the movie, it would have been a lot more interesting when you find out who Wonder Woman was.”~missemmamm
“Jeremy Irons is a fucking lead actor…I don’t want to see Jeremy Irons as the butler. Jeremy Irons is supposed to be like fucking people and then like, throwing them down the stairs.”~missemmamm
(on the tone)
“It was a really depressing movie, most of the time.”~missemmamm
“You know, it was supposed to be emotionally deep, I suppose, but emotions do go beyond the range of sad and depressing and Lex Luthor crazy.”~Sammy Sunshine
P.S. There’s nothing after the end credits. You don’t have to wait.

Are we doing haul videos now? Sometimes, for fun, hell yeah! I mean, c’mon, it’s another way to share our love of Pops, aside from unboxings. Plus you can get a sneak peak of a dress that I will be wearing to Philly Comic Con this summer.

When it comes to plans and how you treat people, do you think that all of this comes down to a generalized fear of missing out (particularly the social media saturated world that we are living in) or is it just general disregard?
Another heavy issue?
Now, I was born in the 80s and raised in the 90s. I’m a true 80s baby/90s child/teen. Unlike those born in the 90s who glom on to all of our pop culture. We were there. We lived it. And we lived without…just some general things. As a certain type of family, we didn’t even have a home phone when I was a very young child (at least 5 and under). I know others did. That’s not what I’m speaking of. I’m speaking of how children now seem to come out of the womb with an ipad attached to their hands, knowing more about apps than I’ll ever know about appetizers.
Any who, the way that the younger generation, and even those closer to my age currently make plans seems a bit bs to me lately. I mean, growing up, things weren’t set in stone. Yes, I’m on the autism spectrum, yes this influences the fact that I have a thing for plans, but I can bend, a bit. However, when we were younger it was definitely a “thing” to make plans. You got on a landline or a payphone and hoped the other person was home or that their parents or younger brother (yeah, right!) would take down a message letting them know that you called and wanted to hangout.
Now a days, it’s more like a series of messages sent through some type of satellite, via either text or social networking that is basically gouging if you are fun/cool/better than the other person’s established plans or maybe if they can fit you into those plans. I get spontaneity. I don’t expect people to drop everything for me. However, if you’ve contacted everyone you are thinking of hanging with and get a no or a maybe and then start hanging with me, well, that seems like a sign that I’m now your friend that you are hanging with. Maybe I’m wrong, who knows.
I must say that I love Asis Ansari’s bit on this though. So, lately, I try to make plans further in advance, if I actually want them to stick. If they are random, I expect nothing. But if someone is being random, don’t abandon those who picked up the slack. I’m fine with being alone, but not after you drag me into your drama. That’s all I’m saying.

Enchanted Bikinis is a faniciful, new swimwear line by designer Sina. Sina is a French designer who has been inspired by fairy tales. She wants women to be able to feel like a princess while wearing her bikinis. She does have a fairly lofty goal of $24,800 with less than a month to complete. So, we need to get on this now. Watch her above video about how she came up with the idea, her families wonderfully positive influence and the quality of her garments.
Obviously, as a Disney nut, I’m super jazzed bout these bikinis. Now, there are mass produced fairy tale inspired bikinis out now. However, these promise to be made in America, on a much small scale, and of amazing quality.
BTW-if you aren’t familiar with Kickstarter. It’s practically the grandaddy of crowdfunding. That’s when all of us out there make each other’s artistic dreams come true. I haven’t donated to any fashion based Kickstarter’s in a while and this one is definitely a must.
There are a ton of really cool backer rewards available. Backer rewards are what you receive in exchange for your donation to a Kickstarter project. For just $15, you can receive adorable sandals, for $25 a tote, for $35 a beach dress, or for $60 all of the above.
Now what about the bikinis? Well, $100 donation gets you one bikini, $250 gets you 3 of the 5 bikini styles and $450 gets you all 5 bikinis plus the sandals, dress, and tote.
If you decide to donate and choose a bikini, the sizes are limited to S-XL (A-DD), but I bet if the company takes off her range will improve. Since not everyone matches on the top and bottom, you do get a choice to mix and match sizes.
What styles are the bikinis themselves?
