#MondayMorningMuse: Gillian Anderson

Posted By Television, Theatre, Women

Anyone who knows me (this is Nicole writing) is likely rolling their eyes as they read who I’ve chosen to profile as this week’s muse, and that is because anyone who knows me is well aware that I have developed a slight obsession over the last few months. If you’re wondering how those who know […]

Posted By Television

If you have not watched all of Parks and Recreation you should really just go and do that right now. Most people who have never seen this series refer to it as “the show that tried to be The Office that no one really watched.” But those of us who have loved Pawnee for seven […]

Top Thoughts on Top Girls

Posted By Theatre

Last week, Jess, Cleo and I spent a day in Niagara-On-The-Lake. A nice perk and useful benefit of The Shaw Festival recommending your show through a TCR grant is complimentary tickets to their season. This is particularly wonderful because NOTL is expensive (like, $34 for a 5oz glass of wine and a caesar salad kind […]

#MondayMorningMuse: Lorelai Gilmore

Posted By Television, Women

Today’s Monday Morning Muse falls under the “fictional” umbrella of this year’s theme, although if you faithfully watched Gilmore Girls from 2000-2007 — from the time you were 10-years-old to 17, let’s say — you have likely spent many a day/night/afternoon/eve/minute wishing Lorelai Gilmore was not only real, but you. Right? Either way, this fast-talkin’ […]
