“Of the Month” March 2014

Tweeter of the Month:
chrissyteigen Chrissy Teigen
Yes, she’s a model, and yes, she’s married to John Legend. And, yes, she’s mostly nekkid in her Twitter profile picture. But she also happens to be whip-smart and one of the funniest people on Twitter right now. She is biting, acerbic, and very charming, and she has no fear of sliding into the vulgar and/or scatalogical territories of twitter (i.e., some NSFW stuffs). I enjoy it. Perhaps so can you to do?

Instagrammer of the Month:
jamesfrancotv James Franco

James Franco has always seemed a bit of a paradox; he comes off as a doofy, grinning, slacker type, but he periodically gets nominated for Golden Globes and Oscars and other prestigious acting awards. And then he appears on a soap opera. His Instagram feed is similarly all over the place, running from bizarre and funny things he’s found on the internets to plugging his appearance in Of Mice and Men on Broadway. But it’s all very friendly and personable, and like Franco himself, you can tell that no publicist or agent or manager has the tiniest bit of influence over what shows up:

Book of the Month:
bluberrygirl Blueberry Girl by Neil Gaiman

Neil Gaiman wrote a poem, a prayer to a newborn little girl (the daughter of Tori Amos originally) that she may grow up to be strong, wise, independent, and fun:

Keep her from spindles and sleeps at sixteen;
Let her stay waking and wise.

There might be a four-month-old reason why this book resonates so much with me… it is seriously beautiful, with Charles Vess’s gorgeously detailed but not literal illustrations. Chokes me up a li’l. You know.

Your Highness (2011)

[Insert juvenile penis joke here]

Your Highness is a comedy. It made me laugh. There ya go! Mission accomplished. Anybody looking for anything more out of this movie will be incredibly disappointed. It is not really a good movie at all. But I found it thoroughly enjoyable and funny. [Read my full review]
