E.L. James Human Centipedes Herself With Grey

sorrytelevision.wordpress.com — Oh how I missed Christian Grey. His stoic intensity, his impeccable suit collection, his way with small words. His twisted cliche of a past and complacent cliche of a future. His contempt for normal relationships and yet powerlessness in the face of the most boring woman on earth. His playroom.

My Weekend With Charles Manson

sorrytelevision.wordpress.com — Guys, there are a lot of things I recommend you do in this lifetime-go on a road trip, skydive, eat more than 1,500 calories in a single sitting-but reading the 675-page Helter Skelter in a mere four days is not one of them. That shit will fuck with your head.

Chris Harrison’s The Perfect Letter Is a Festival of Cliches

sorrytelevision.wordpress.com — I suppose it's not surprising that someone let Chris Harrison write a book. The diminutive all-American host of The Bachelor and Bachelorette has participated in some 29 seasons of televised romantic Hunger Games, during which time he's perfected the art of soberly watching men and women choose their future fiancees via a series of melodramatic flower...

Megan Daum Might Be The Lovechild of Fran Lebowitz And Nora Ephron

sorrytelevision.wordpress.com — Sometimes I discover writers whose brains I'd love to poke around in, whose ideas are either so different from mine or so inherently unique that to read something of theirs is like tiptoeing into another universe. If I had to be honest, I'd say these are the authors to whom I generally gravitate-my love of reading...

J.K. Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy: Accio excitement?

sorrytelevision.wordpress.com — As book titles go, The Casual Vacancy is pretty appropriate. Not only because a casual vacancy -- a seat on a local city council made suddenly available by the unexpected death of its holder -- is the circumstance around which J.K. Rowling's latest novel revolves, but also because somehow this particular turn of phrase seems...

Put Down Your McNuggets And Read The Meat Racket

sorrytelevision.wordpress.com — On the long list of careers at which I know I would fail miserably, farmer is near the top, right next to schoolteacher, personal trainer and anything involving dead bodies. Farming requires more than an extraordinary work ethic, a high tolerance for early-morning hours and physical exertion, and a certain resilience when it comes to the...

You Know What’s Punk Rock About Marriage?

sorrytelevision.wordpress.com — It would be almost be worth my (hypothetical) husband having an affair-maybe worth going through life with a name reminiscent of both "awful" and "offal"-if it meant I could go on to write a book as spectacular as Jenny Offill's Dept. of Speculation. A slim treatise on the maturation of a marriage, DOS is so compact as...

'Backstreet Boys - Show 'Em What You're Made Of': An affectionate look at five middle-aged men

independent.co.uk — Since their first single 20 years ago, the Backstreet Boys - AJ McLean, Howie Dorough, Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson and Brian Littrell - have recorded a dozen albums and sold more than 130 million of them worldwide. They've packed amphitheatres, broken records and danced shirtless in fake rain.

Backstreets Boys to Men

newsweek.com — It's 10 minutes before I'm going to Skype with the Backstreet Boys, and my 29-year-old self is anxiously pondering a dilemma my 10-year-old self - a BSB superfan - couldn't possibly have imagined: Which wall of my tiny, cluttered New York City apartment do I feel most comfortable letting one of the most successful boy bands in history look at over my shoulder?

The Martian Deserves Everything It’s Getting, Matt Damon Included

sorrytelevision.wordpress.com — The most surprising thing about The Martian isn't that it's going to be a major Ridley Scott film starring [typecast?] astronaut Matt Damon in the leading role. Or that the novel's author, Andy Weir, wrote some 350 page of extremely technical aerospace detail with little more than Google research.
