Old Bae. Bond. That Scottish accent. Indiana Jones' Dad. You've loved Sean Connery all your life, haven't you? Me, too. Here's to aging gracefully, Dr. Jones.
This is certainly unprecedented. We greet Wednesday with not just one person, but five of them. (Well, still one, but we'll talk about that in a second.) Let me tell you how I discovered New Edition. Back in the 80s, the kids in school would sing, over and over again, "sunny days..." But they would [...]
Why relegate candy to your sweet tooth? Shall we not have candy for the eye, too? This is Superman. I know, I know: you thought Superman wasn't real you thought Superman was Christopher Reeve. And he is, no doubt. But this is the new Superman. And I mean...Wednesdays were made for that face. They just [...]
The title will make sense in a minute, I promise. I didn't post yesterday, so I'm posting today. So it's not Monday. The following post was already published for my "Because it's Wednesday" feature in June 2017 (aka Eye Candy Wednesdays; aka my assortment of boos and baes in the public eye), but I'm reposting [...]
Did you miss Wednesdays with This Square Peg? Here's a mea culpa for my absence: Liev Schreiber has eyes that will find their ways into your soul. He also has a voice that will drive you slightly crazy. He's also immensely talented, with a quiet, still intensity that always captures my attention when he's onscreen. [...]
Let's get to it. This is Chadwick Boseman. You may have seen him in 42, or Get on Up, or the latest rendering of Captain America, or the recently released trailer for Black Panther, which gave you, me, and everyone currently living enough life to last for more life. I mean... I chose the photo [...]
"Smile!" I've heard it most of my life. And if you have a resting fierce face like me, you've heard it, too. Strangers, random folks--they all seem to take pleasure in viewing our stony features and commanding us to break into grins. Like me, do you want to push said people over to the ground [...]
It's been a while since we discussed Wednesday lovelies. Here's one for your consideration. You know how I feel about him. I discussed his blueprint status here. Before my dear Idris, it was him. It's still him. You know how you'll never forget your fourth-grade crush even though you're now in college and your current "true [...]
Because repetition is often the best teacher. Because he is always and forever bae. Because broken record status is the best place to be. Because look at that face. (My goodness.) Because come on. Because black is the color of my true love's hair. Happy Wednesday.
Well, dears, today ends 30 days of Blogvembering. Went by pretty fast, no? I enjoyed every minute of it, even those moments when I was about to drift off into sleep and recalled with panic that I forgot to blog. And I admit to cheating when those times happened by combining days, but a blog [...]
