The Friday Five: May 25th

1.  AfterBuzzTV:  I recently joined the crew over at AfterBuzzTV and last night was my first episode for the So You Think You Can Dance recap.  I will be on each week for Season 9 giving you my insight and opinions on the show.  We will have several guests from previous seasons and you can call in to offer your thoughts on each episode.  Here is the link for last night's podcast, I hope to have the YouTube link up before the end of the weekend.  *Update: Here it is!*

2.  Great Gatsby:  Last week, I showed you the trailer for the upcoming campy musical, Rock of Ages. This week, I have a little more serious fare for you to take a look at, Great Gatsby.  It's been awhile since we have seen a true Baz Luhrmann film, but here it is in all it's glory with colorful sets, costumes, and the all important soundtrack.  Take a look at the trailer and let me know if you are as excited as I am to see this movie.  Be patient, you have to wait until Thanksgiving.

3.  The Hardy Boys:  If you have some free time this weekend, catch up on this episode of The Hardy Boys with a Nancy Drew cameo.  It's an episode entitled, "Mystery of the Hollywood Phantom", so it's a great opportunity to see what Los Angeles looked like in in the 1970s.  I am such a fan of Hollywood history and this episode has it all:  Dennis Weaver, Jaws, Casey Kasem, a poster promoting Robert Blake as Baretta, and a pinkie ring on Shaun Cassidy that is to die for.  "Da Do Ron Ron" forever!

4.  Disney: I've told you countless times how big of a Disney Dork I am, so it will come as no surprise that I finally bought an Annual Pass.  Now that I am off of the road nonstop, I want to do something that makes me really happy:  visiting Mickey Mouse and the gang whenever possible.  So, I am sure you will see more photos from the Happiest Place on Earth.  Remember, you have been warned!

5. Fashion:  I talked about this outfit here, so I just wanted to give you the update on how it all came together....Betsey Johnson dress with my Charles David neon blue shoes at the Gracie Awards on Tuesday.  I am going to alter the dress by pulling up the hem over the knee to show off a little leg for the next time I wear it, but I thought it was fun outfit to wear for a night celebrating women's achievements in the media.  I will have more scoop on that event next week.

In the meantime, have a great holiday weekend:  be safe, relax, and enjoy a tasty treat or two.  See you on Monday!

  1. Is it wrong to want to watch Gatsby for the costumes, cars and art design?  Not one of my favorite Fitzgeralds, but darn it looks swell.

  2. I think that's a great reason to watch a Luhrmann film.  His use of color and creativity are reasons to see the movie. 

  3. Very true.  There were some things about his Romeo + Juliet I didn't like, but the style wasn't one.  And Strictly Ballroom is near perfect and one of my favorite movies.  Seeing Gatsby is now on the schedule.
